If we end up with more than two viable options at running back, and with Isaac's pass-catching ability, someone needs to make sure Harbaugh sees this film.

I heard Bacon tell a story where he said "For some teams, hanging 80 on them just isn't enough, and Illinois is 3 of those teams."

I love Tim Curry. It's sad that he's been in bad health for the last few years.

No, that was Kaelin Clay. A few weeks after doing the Heisman pose in Michigan Stadium, he did this against Oregon:
Which Oregon picked up and returned for a game-tying touchdown.

The MMB has gone before in the '90s and early '00s, but since then Penn State has been reluctant to allocate the space in the stadium the MMB would need. They don't want to seat them on the sideline and they would rather sell tickets for the seats in the stands that the MMB would sit in.

In the old days under Carr the submarine was called Fort Schembechler and I don't remember the local media comlaining about it a quarter as much.
Look, I understand that it makes their jobs more difficult but it's not like they won't have plenty to talk about once the season starts. And they had a whole summer of articles to write about satellite camps, Parisian vacations, and all sorts of other things. I don't think four weeks of silence from South Campus is going to make all the media outlets in the area lay off their sports staffs.

But he offered to pay your medical bills, right?

Jim Cantafio. Dude was always one step ahead of one sexual misconduct investigation or another.

The moment he starts rolling, I'll be shocked if half the people around me don't start yelling "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING???"
|1 week 3 days ago||Frankly, Salt Lake is||
Frankly, Salt Lake is culturally not any different than most cities. It's the suburbs to the south running along I-15 down to Provo where you run into Utah's particular political and social features.

Parking around Rice-Eccles sucks. Salt Lake has a lot of good restaurants and bars, and some good museums and attractions. You might want to spend that spare day up in Park City, which is also a good eating and drinking town and has good summer activities at the Olympic Park and Park City Mountain Resort, plus just walking on Main Street is fun.

Johnny Bench at a laser tag place when I was a kid. He was a total douchebag.
Loretta Switt ("Hot Lips" Hoolihan from M*A*S*H*) at the Holocaust Museum in DC.
Blake Lively at a resort I worked at one summer. She was super nice and polite.
Jonah Hill at Weber's.
Hilary Swank at Angelo's.
Chad Henne and Jake Long at an airport in Florida when they were both with the Dolphins. Henne was really nice and chatted for a few minutes. Jake Long was making phone calls so I didn't get to talk to him, but they both signed a Michigan hat I had with me and the back of my brother's plane ticket.
My father flew for a major airline and met a lot of famous people. One time (pre-9/11) the flight attendents told him and the co-pilot that one of the passengers wanted to meet them while the plane was still boarding and into the cockpit walked Sean Connery. He was apparently very nice and said he always makes a point to meet the people who are flying the plane he's on.

I was thinking from the kicker's perspective on a longer field goal, but I suppose it could apply to the fans as well. Like if you're sitting in the south end zone watching a field goal in the north end zone.

I wonder if they'll be hard to see early in the season when more people are wearing maize apparel.

I like the jersey, but I'm really not a fan of the white pants. If we had a white helmet they would look fine, but we don't.

The other thing I noticed was the ABC Sports logo attached to the top of the scoreboard. I guess the "no advertising" rule has been broken before.

Yeah, I wonder why no one ever got mad at Jesse Owens for doing that either.

I like it. Johnson is a Detroit native (University of Detroit Jesuit alum) who has openly stated his affinity for Michigan sports in the past. It'll be nice to have a homer in the booth.

Star Wars, Star Trek, books (mostly modern American and Central/Western European history). I also love building model planes and ships.

Hearts of Iron 2 has stolen many hours/days of my life from me. Such a great game.

This reminds me of the 1917 Halifax Explosion, which killed 2,000 and wounded 9,000 and leveled much of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Two ships collided in the harbor entrance, which wouldn't have been so bad if one of the ships wasn't carrying a full cargo of munitions and high-octane fuel bound for France. The fuel ignited in the collision and no one could stop what happened next.

The unconfirmed reports I saw said that a gas station fire ignited storage tanks at a nearby chemical plant, which then ignited the plant itself.

I was at the 2008 Capital One Bowl as an MMB member, and I went to the 2012 Sugar Bowl with family.
I also went to the 2005 Outback Bowl with my high school marching band. Georgia beat Wisconsin 24-21 and current ESPN analyst David Pollack was the game MVP.

I think what this all proves is that the school always has the leverage as to what it wants to wear regardless of what the apparel company comes up with. Any time Michigan teams wear something silly, it's the school's fault for agreeing to wear it, not the apparel company for designing it.
