Cedar Point is fun, but other than that I have no use for the state (which implies no use for OSU).
|1 day 15 hours ago||Congrats and best of health||
Congrats and best of health for the new youngsters.

The Lions must be trying to experience a bowl game vicariously through college teams.

No, but indeed he was a very talented receiver at UM. One of my early UM football memories was Smith catching a TD pass from running back Gordon Bell in the 1975 Michigan-Ohio State game.

Shit, man. It goes without saying our winged helmet is the greatest ever created, not just the Big Ten but in all of football.

Red wine from a box. The cheap stuff. Now, I can afford better but I'm just not discriminating. My oldest son, a recent WMU grad, is moving back in for the summer (he's got a teaching job in the Fall), is a beer connoisseur but has no $ to his name. I'll treat him to whatever he wants when he gets back on Sunday.

Not too many youngsters would know that reference. Great movie when I was in high school.

You know the rule. Pictures or it didn't happen.

I'm a bachelor for two weeks. My wife's parents are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary so to commemorate they are treating my wife and her sister to a European river cruise. I'm lounging in bed but was awakened by a message from my wife so wished her a Happy Mother's Day. I will probably grill something at home with my youngest son today.

This is Sparty's design. Like Harris, Marshall does not fit MSU's national recruiting strategy. They have their sights set much higher than simply the state of Michigan.
|1 week 5 days ago||Yes!!! When I was a student||
Yes!!! When I was a student at UM, the closest whirlyball was in Toledo. We'd make the journey there to play and them eat at Tony Packo's. Fantastic game, er sport.
|1 week 5 days ago||I just can't wait for||
I just can't wait for football. With the Wings hanging on by a thread, and lukewarm interest in baseball (never recovered from the 1994 strike), it's like a dead zone.
|1 week 6 days ago||That's fantastic.||

A free college education to punt footballs, and he can't stay away from pot. What a shame.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Looks like a walking||
Looks like a walking testicle.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||September 28th is the weekend||
September 28th is the weekend of my 25th wedding anniversary. I suppose I should do something to commemorate.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I liked Keith Jackson, but||
I liked Keith Jackson, but Bob Ufer was the gold (maize?) standard for me. Back then only a few games per year were televised so radio was the lifeline to Michigan football. Nobody did it better than Ufer.

Actually, the greatest university in the Universe.

I pray he was accepted.

Fantastic that Denard is walking in the graduation ceremony. A great accomplishment and something he will always remember.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Quite a few. First game was||
Quite a few. First game was UM-Missouri in 1975. Had season tickets in high school 1980-82 when my brother was a student, and went to games 1983-1988 when I was a student at UM. Several since then, but my most memorable was going with my son and mother to the 1997 UM-Iowa game, the only game my mother attended.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Congrats to Denard.||
Congrats to Denard.

"Fuckin Shit" - his on-air handle. Love it!

Cycling was the closest I came to being a college athlete, nearly 30 years ago. I have my faded maize and blue jersey from the UM club tucked away somewhere. I can assure you there was no doping, unless you consider Molson/Labatts contraband.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Damn, why did you have to||
Damn, why did you have to state that? I've got a date with Miss Michigan tonight and now I'm getting nervous.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Hondas are very reliable.||
Hondas are very reliable. Even criminals would know that.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Basketball. I think UM still||
Basketball. I think UM still has the nucleus to be a top-team. Not as sure about football. We've got lots of talent with young kids, but many are not tested yet.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Firstly, Ohio was not||
Firstly, Ohio was not champion of anything. Second, who would want a ring with a picture of weed on the side?
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I don't care at all about||
I don't care at all about jersey numbers. Let's just win football games and these kids will become legends in their own right.

Frickin insane. Prayers for all the victims and loved ones.
