They were in the early stages of a 20-yr streak of winning the Big Ten. We hosted a dual meet and included some diving events they weren't prepared for, which gave us the winning score. I think they might not have had a 10m platform at Indiana at the time. Story courtesy of my dad, a UM student at the time. I'm going to hit post now before the long-running script from banner ads freezes my computer for the fifth time.

"Only we can do that to our pledges." He said many things I wish weren't true, but nothing that was obviously false.

Aidan's dad is Chris Hutchinson.

Trevor Pryce, Reed Baker, who else?

The Detroit Renaissance coach thought that he could make a name for himself (at least within the Sparty universe) by barring Rich Rodriguez from recruiting kids on is team, ostensibly because one of our Renaissance kids was medicaled. What he got out of it was a permanent vacation from coaching the Renaissance team. He tried to cut off the avenue to the best public university in the state, failing to realize that parents sent their kids to his magnet high school so they could get into a good college.
Thomas Wilcher was smart enough not to publicly burn his bridges with OSU despite the twists and turns of the Mike Weber recruitment.

Need this win. Freddy P. Soft stay at home.

He tricked Finebaum into saying that Ole Miss cheated and is getting deservedly punished for it.

Pore Jud, I mean, Tom. :-(

Woman: I'm sorry, I thought you were someone else.
Demetri Martin: I am.

He's usually a lot closer to the action than he was when he got flattened by Moe. I will put this up with Tim Hardaway joining the MSU huddle, except Moe's was probably unintentional.

Sort of a butt-chinned version of Valeria Golino in Hot Shots.

We were tremendous yoots.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Maybe if we go in like Dobermans||
But playing a game at Indiana is almost guaranteed frustration. Indiana seems down this year, maybe we can make it happen.

Very Amero-centric of them to refer to an organization as a singular subject. They simply cannot speak the Queen's English.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||That was the result||
of the 30-day investigation.
They were working extra shifts. Glad you got the Creedence back.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||BTN and ESPN eventually figured out that I had AT&T Uverse||
but that I wasn't paying AT&T for cable. I dropped cable in May 2016 but kept the internet. ESPN was more aggressive and stopped letting me watch live programming, but I was able to watch a few UM football games on my laptop because BTN still thought I had cable.
FWIW I had SlingTV for November-January and was able to watch the games on ESPN. I bought an antenna for ABC games though it was a pain in the ass to get it to work. Plus it was major bad luck - the first four events I watched on the antenna were losses (two WS games, UM @ Iowa, UM @OSU).

made me think of Toonces the Driving Cat.

Also a superb QB Oh Noes artist. And the secondary subject of the wizard hat snake oil comment. Can we have another slot receiver who's as effective as Roy, please?

|2 weeks 6 days ago||Dantonio was trying to make it 0-4||
by going for two. Of course there was only one way they could produce a margin that made the game completely unwinnable with that little time on the clock.
Who will screw themselves over when trying to paper over a home loss to their archrival?

No! V. I. Lenin! Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov!
Also...Roger, you are out of your element.

Bigger locker indeed.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||At the Michigan-Northwestern game in 1992||
There was a big size mismatch on the edge. Our cornerback towered over one of the Northwestern wideouts. Our guy: 5'11" Ty Law. Their guy was 5'4". I miss those days.

Mike DeBord is in love.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Nice finish||
In the final two months before signing day, we secured 10 of our top 12 recruits, including the top three. Two five-stars and ten four-stars in the final two months.

Perhaps the ambient temperature in Tuscaloosa was just slightly below the temp in Houston.

that Fred McGriff displayed when endorsing Tom Emanski's baseball instructional videos.
He has a lack of enthusiasm that is widely known to mankind.
