"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

Can't say enough about how classy their football program is. Just a really classy group of guys.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Also a Kazoo transplant in Chicago||
and I agree that Dragon's Milk is unbelievably good. One of my favorites. New Holland puts out some very, very good beer. Any IPA fans out there? I just tried Three Floyds IPA a few weeks back and was blown away. Very good stuff.

I don't know how you can call Green Line "tasteless swill" but to each his own. Personally, I think it's a decent brew. Matilda is probably their finest product and 312 is good but not great. Goose Island does put out very good beer; here's to hoping that continues.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Among my earliest sports memories||
is being overwhelmed by the excitement that shot generated. Grant Hill will always be one of my favorite Pistons. Respect!

Do you think DB actually interviewed him for the position? Miles said he could not speak to the "substance" of the meeting. Why would DB discuss anything other than the coaching position? And why can't we hire a friggin' head coach? So many questions. So few answers. Head officially asplode.
|3 years 40 weeks ago||I wanted Oregon to win||
...until Corso put on that duck mask. Then I just wanted to stadium to implode. If Miles is introduced as our next coach, maybe we can make a Les Miles mask for Game Day picks.

I brought the sammiches for the post-posbang eating sesh.

I came for the posbang.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||Pay those players!||
No money? Fie on this study! Won't someone please think of the children?! They should be paid! Their families are starving and their free-rides just don't cut it. If only those godless, freedom-hating Communists at the NCAA could get this through their Neanderthal, pea-sized brains! /s

Let's just throw in the towel now, guys. Our defense is not built to stop teams with "downhill" style running attacks. Unfortunately the laws of college football are incredibly rigid: if you feature a spread attack, your defense can only play well against offenses that feature a spread attack. Damn it! I forgot all about that old law.

My genitalia might not recover so easily this time. Dong thoroughly punched through. Ow.
|4 years 38 weeks ago||I'm pretty sure||
I'm pretty sure Cass Tech players decline offers from State because, well, State sucks. Wilcher doesn't really have to point that out - it's a well-known fact.
|4 years 39 weeks ago||Dumb and Dumber reference?||
Given the context, I love it.
|4 years 39 weeks ago||I heard he's related||
to our very own Denard Robinson.
|4 years 40 weeks ago||I have a feeling||
I have a feeling there are many schools out there claiming to be the originators of a certain chant. I wonder how often Miami, Florida, Tennessee or anyone else ridicules Michigan for the "It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine" line. I'm not going to pretend to be an authority in the area and claim to know exactly when and where every chant originated. If nothing else, take heart at this imitation for it is the sincerest form of flattery ... or unoriginality ;)
|4 years 40 weeks ago||Yes.||
Yes. It really does sit that low. They dug up a lot of earth when they constructed this stadium.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||I understand||
I understand the frustration with Lovie Smith. The owners are reputedly frugal, perhaps to a fault. I think the Bears should be much, much better than this. No one likes a bunch of underachievers ...
|4 years 41 weeks ago||And yeah||
the logos faintly resemble one another.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||My cousins||
are also Bears fans. They live a block or two away from Soldier Field. Earlier in the season, my cousin's facebook status was: "Now I know what it's like to be a Lions fan..." to which I replied: Yes, because your team hasn't been to the playoffs consistently this decade to say nothing of the fact that you've made it to the Super Bowl. Yeah. You know how it feels to be a Lions fan. No other fan base in the NFL save perhaps the Browns's, knows how it feels to be a Lions fan. They have two great options in the draft between Suh and Eric Berry but it will be at least another two years to see real progress and a legitimate playoff run.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||Anyone remember when||
Anyone remember when it was the Builder's Square Alamo Bowl? That game against TAMU drove me nuts. We totally got jobbed in that one. Damn the Big XII.

make me wish I could +100. Excellent Simpsons reference.

Our prodigal son. Let's bring them back. Hell, they have more Big Ten championships than Michigan State.
|4 years 44 weeks ago||Coach Rod||
has won 3 conference games thus far and has won 8 games in two years. I don't think the AD interpreted these wins as "job-saving."
|4 years 44 weeks ago||Bo Pelini||
Bo Pelini wasted little time turning the Nebraska defense around. It shouldn't take long for Gerg to install his system if indeed he is a great defensive mind. I have faith.
|4 years 44 weeks ago||Exactly.||
Charlie Weis never struggled to recruit great talent. I don't see this changing anything. We need to start delivering on the field every Saturday and worry about what we can do to improve our lot on the recruiting trail. Let's not get too preoccupied with this Kelly hire. It's still business as usual as far as I'm concerned.
|4 years 44 weeks ago||Great hire.||
If Kelly is going to be successful, however, he will need to focus much of his energy on improving Notre Dame's defense. We know they'll put up lots of points but will the defense improve? Coach Rod is in the same boat right now. Defense wins championships!

If you read this, know there are plenty of Michigan fans who are thrilled with your verbal commitment. Can't wait to see you in the winged helmet! Go Blue!
|4 years 45 weeks ago||It's mostly a story of credits transferring.||
My friend transferred from Eastern Michigan, a fully-accredited institution of higher education and many of her credits did not transfer to M. It can make things awfully difficult for JUCO players.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||It's very difficult to||
just go out and bring in an experienced player from another program. The staff doesn't waste time touring the country, trying to poach players from other universities. And even if we could land a solid transfer, he would have to sit out a year as NCAA rules dictate. What coaches try to do to get a "quick fix" is bring in JUCO players but this has been discussed before. Not only is it difficult to get the credits to transfer, we don't appear to attract many. Let's just wait and see how the rest of the recruiting season plays out before we panic.

is that one of Tebow's tears would have given him everlasting life.
