i would find this more credible if it was about Tom Crean

That's a way of remembering it. But it actually comes from Adi Dassler's name.

Same here. And truthfully, it was as good a reason as any other for an MSA candidate.

...doesn't hit my funny bone. Not that long ago, students actually used to fill the student section up. Hopefully it will improve with Harbaugh.

No, this is a tournament for mid-major teams. The field is here.

Does dynamic pricing ever go in the other direction - does it ever lead to reduced ticket prices?
|3 hours 6 min ago||Sometimes an injury update||
Sometimes an injury update can be good. For example, a guy might have an MRI done and it turns out that he doesn't have a torn ligament.
|3 hours 30 min ago||None of the above||
Not sure what you're implying, but I certainly don't want him to be injured.
I wanted to know if he was sure the update would contain bad news about the injury.

To be an MGoComedian, wouldn't you have to post here?

That job has really become a revolving door. Strange that their next move is to hire Barnes, who not only has a reputation as an underachiever, but is nearing retirement age.

Yep. We didn't get much luck of the draw though, facing three of the best teams ever in 1965 UCLA, 1976 Indiana and 1992 Duke.
1993 UNC and 2013 Louisville were also very good teams (both #1 seeds) although they were definitely more beatable than the three above. We'd actually beaten UNC earlier that season. The '93 title loss is still probably my most painful sports memory.
1989 Seton Hall was the only really favorable matchup and we got it done, although we cut it awfully close.
|1 day 2 hours ago||When's the last time they||
When's the last time they retired a number? I'm curious. I imagine they don't want to do too much of that either.
We can function without those five numbers, obviously. But if we want to honor other players beyond those seven (none of whom played later than the 1950s), we could get to a point where we don't have enough numbers. That's the problem that the legends jerseys could have solved.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Per wikipedia, the last name||
Per wikipedia, the last name Kovacs is the second-most common in Hungary. As for the first name Zoltan, it connotes royalty and is also very common. So this isn't quite the astonishing coincidence it seems.

Why only #2? We've had two other Heisman winners.
|1 day 3 hours ago||Because we want to use those||
Because we want to use those numbers. We don't like having five numbers out of circulation for a roster of 115, and we've been reluctant to retire any others because we don't want to take still more out.

Actually we have seven Final Four appearances and reached the title game in six of them. We lost in the semis in 1964.

Strangely there were no posts like this one year ago, when we achieved our third banner season in a row.

That's a strong ticket. Well-balanced.

CRISP itself was the way of registering for courses in the 1980s/90s. You went on the phone, called some number and an automated lady slowly gave you commands about what to enter in on the keypad: "Enter the subject number" . . . "Enter the course number" . . . "Enter the number of credits." You had to enter it all in on the keypad and you only had a limited amount of time before the CRISP lady chided you for not making your choice. Beyond that, you were put on hold frequently because the system couldn't handle very many people at one time.
The whole process could take from 15 minutes to over an hour, depending on whether you could enter everything in correctly, get the courses you wanted, and how busy the system was. It was nerve-wracking trying to enter in those numbers within the allotted amount of time. I would always screw up some number in there and have to redo a bunch of steps. The CRISP lady's "If this is not correct, press 1 now" is burned into my memory. It always felt like a great accomplishment when you got that whole process done.
More generally, "crisp" became the verb for registering for your classes, as in "I just crisped for next term." U-M switched to an online registration system my senior year (Wolverine Access?) but people still talked about "crisping."

Yes, this whole business of ripping off European names needs to stop. "Real Salt Lake" is the most cringeworthy, but it has plenty of competitors.
And man, was Ufer a walking encyclopedia of Michigan football knowledge. In that Gordie Bell clip he tells us immediately that it had been 11 years since the last halfback option TD, and who had thrown it!

I asked some undergrads about this about awhile ago. Sadly, none were familiar with the term CRISP.

You can buy Michigan apparel that isn't made by Adidas. They're the official supplier but there are plenty others.

Does James Earl Jones follow Michigan sports? If so, he'd be an amazing in-game interview subject.

The kid must have played through a ton of pain this past season.

I can't imagine how weird it would be to be a mediocre coach of a sport you invented. Very, very odd.
