The weather at college and NFL games has been alike since the NFL started playing ball. I don't think it's a bad idea to keep that going.

Did she reply, "A marsupial is a mammal"?

Tiebreakers have (presumably) been around for over a century as well. I think it'll be fine.
|1 day 11 hours ago||The two teams with the best||
The two teams with the best records will play a one-off game for the title. The conference determined a champion with win-loss for over a century, this just adds a game.
|1 day 11 hours ago||If Michigan and OSU are the||
If Michigan and OSU are the top two teams in the fourteen team conference, rematch ratings shouldn't be an issue and might actually increase.
I get the resistance about having another shot at beating the winner of The Game, but that's a paradigm shift that isn't going to go away and I think on the whole the positives outweigh the negatives.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Only Howe, Yzerman,||
Only Howe, Yzerman, Delvecchio, Lidstrom, Holmstrom and Draper have played more games as a Red Wing.
Assuming I can math, that means Lindsay, Abel and Sawchuck have their numbers up despite not being a Wing as long as Fedorov.
|1 day 21 hours ago||No.||
Not without some ridiculous run that involves Datsyuk not retiring to Russia after 2017. Love those guys, but Fedorov is the only recent player with an argument, IMO.
|1 day 21 hours ago||It's not retired, it's out of||
It's not retired, it's out of circulation. If it was up to me I'd put a white 16 banner up, but I can see where people are coming from with just about any other plan; it's a unique situation with a lot of emotions on all sides.

Surprised BTB and Mr Spots got the requisite mentions but not Weber's.
I'll join in with everyone and say Chop House is probably what the OP is looking for, but one of the best steaks I've ever had was at Weber's.
Edit: Missed GoBlueRandy's post above. My bad.

If he was in on it, his acting skills have improved considerably since 8 Mile.
He looked like he was about to hit Colbert when he asked what he had done in the past and when he was going to realize he wasn't going to make it and get a real job.

My mom and two of my uncles are John Glenn alums from roughly your time (they were there with Carr). She was in the marching band, my uncles played basketball.
|2 days 21 hours ago||We were awful.||
I believe my HS still holds some type of IHSA loss record. Consecutive losses maybe?
One guy in my class went FCS and we had a couple D1 basketball players on the team so better than usual in my time, but historically just awful at football.

|3 days 11 hours ago||In any case, Yzerman has done||
In any case, Yzerman has done more than enough to prove he should be the man in Detroit when Holland retires. His fellow GM's spoke loudly at the awards last week, like you said, he got his coach, he's navigated their cap issues well and I'd put money on him having a cup before he leaves unless something weird happens with Holland.
I'm not going to say he didn't have some luck (flipside is he had earned a shot with a non-awful franchise) but he's pretty much nailed every big decision he's needed to make and has two consecutive gold medals managing the Canadian team on his resume as well.
Yzerman is a legitimately talented GM.

Average retirement age: 78.7
Rehnquist is the only one to die in office since 1955, and justices are retiring later than in the past.

I believe the Android app was made as some kind of school project and hasn't been updated in a while.
Someone with Android skillz should talk to Brian about making an updated version.

Sorry, I wasn't very clear. I was trying to get across that I think he has a better case than anyone he played with (except Yzerman and Lidstrom) and anyone currently playing. Someone who would be retiring soon or did recently.
I did forget about Aurie, though, I won't pretend I didn't. Weird situation all around, but then again people might say that about Fedorov after enough time.
|4 days 17 hours ago||I don't know if I agree 91||
I don't know if I agree 91 should be retired, but I do agree he has the strongest case of anyone not up there (unless they ever want to hang a 16 banner).
|4 days 19 hours ago||My bad.||
I should have said "at least since". I didn't know Romero had a sister until the Oklahoma/Michigan WCWS game where she was in Michigan gear as an Oklahoma commit.
|4 days 19 hours ago||I've been waiting for this||
I've been waiting for this today. Lidstrom is an obvious lock, but I'm honestly hoping Fedorov gets in as well. I know a lot of people feel differently, but it's time to welcome him back and remember how good he was as a Red Wing.
Only Howe, Yzerman, Delvecchio, Lidstrom, Holmstrom and Draper have played more games as a Red Wing. It's a damn shame to keep the boos going.
