I don't care who wins as long as it's not Miami.

"fawned over Tom Izzo like he was the reincarnation of Dr. James Naismith himself " I get the point you're making here and I agree with it...but James Naismith was actually a mediocre/bad coach despite the fact that he invented the game.
Fun fact: he's the only head coach in the history of the Kansas Jayhawks basketball program to end his career with a losing record (55-60, .478). He only had two winning seasons, 7-4 in 1898-99 and 12-7 in 1905-06.
I wish Izzo was a reincarnation of Naismith, because then MSU would kinda suck.

Elvis Costello said that every performer is playing a character and the ones who get in trouble are the ones who confuse the character for their real selves. That's how I've come to understand Clarkson.

Someone once asked Bob Knight if there would ever be a dynasty like Wooden's 10 titles with UCLA, and he said there wouldn't because no one can get away with the same level of cheating nowadays.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar once said that he was going to go to Michigan to play in college, but UCLA offered more money so he went there instead.

Someone pointed that out on r/cfb and an OSU fan said that they get stickers by unit (position group and offense/defense) as well as for individual stuff. That's why a backup can have a bunch.

Apparently marrying into the Harbaugh family doesn't magically grant you coaching acumen.

My favorite thing about THE KNOWLEDGE isn't so much THE KNOWLEDGE itself (though I think it's a funny bit), but rather the people who are absolutely enraged by THE KNOWLEDGE. What a weird thing to get all worked up over.

I don't have any strong feelings about the memes as long as they stay on here.
What I mean by that is this: I was at a softball game a number of years ago and a group of three people in front of me pretty much had a game-long conversation in nothing but MGoBoard memes. And holy shit did I want to murder them by the bottom of the 2nd inning.
Keep the fake internet stuff on the internet, people.

Mine would be getting a fist-bump from Coach Beilein while I was doing homework in the hotel lobby during the 2010 Big Ten Tournament.
That's a much nicer memory than what happened the next day.

He was on Mission: Impossible after Star Trek ended. He hosted a lot of TV series, and he directed "Three Men and a Baby." He was also an accomplished photographer.

Then again, a guy who chooses to go by "Dick" when it will be hilariously paired with the last name " Armey" may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer.

The most important thing to remember when looking at his Iowa stats is that he was playing in Greg Davis' offense.

The St. Regis is swanky as hell. Definitely a good honeymoon spot. There's lots of hiking and biking in the area. Park City Mountain Resort has summer attractions (Alpine Slide, Alpine Coaster, Zip Line). Main Street is fun to walk up and down, and there's lots of good food (hit the High West Distillery, their lunch is fantastic). Lots of fun stuff to do in Park City.

2016 is the 50th anniversary of the franchise. Plus LeVar Burton's daughter is a Michigan student, and Jonathan Frakes plays the trombone (though he's a Penn State alum)...I smell a TNG reunion!
Cool story, bro: I was in the MMB when Patrick Stewart conducted us. I recently got a picture of him conducting the MMB signed by him at a con. His face lit up when he saw it and he remarked on how much fun he had doing it and what a great day it was.

I was in Bacon's class my senior year, and he brought Martin in to talk to us. It was a really interesting talk, though the only specific part I can remember is an appropos-of-nothing rant about Timothy Geithner.
He has a fairly typical crochety Midwestern old guy voice, if that makes any sense.

Orson Welles applause .gif aside, what's the story of him being kicked out of Red's dressing room? I must have missed it among, well, every other dumb thing Brandon did.
