These deservedly earned the reputation as the most dangerous production car to drive.

Ok, I confess, I have more than that. But 3 is enough, as Mrs. mgoblue78 is more than happy to remind me.
Now, get off my lawn

It is generally not remembered that Millie was not Bo's first wife.
Bo's first wife left him rather than move from Columbus to Oxford when he took the Miami job.
Think about that for a minute. It was more important for Bo to take that HC job than to remained married to his first wife. And it was more important to her to live in the state capitol with ~500K population rather than move to a town of 15K with her husband.

the odds of an asteroid hitting the Horseshoe.
Long as the odds of PSU beating MSU are, they gotta be a couple orders of magnitute better than an asteroid.
|35 weeks 18 hours ago||You don't have to pull for OSU to win over MSU||
All you need to do is pull for PSU to beat MSU next week.
If that is less distasteful.
It is for me.
But asteroid works too.
Or how about a virulent debilitating illness to infect everyone in the horseshoe this afternoon.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||Keep the white away pants||
I liked them when they were introduced, and I like them now.
Now, I will admit that one of the reasons that I liked them when they were first introduced 40 some years ago was that I disliked the two-toned maize pants, and the all-whites were a respite from that monstrosity.
I'm very happy with the uniforms this year (nothwithstanding the heresy of helmet stickers between the stripes), and I wouldn't change anything next season.

There is nothing whatsoever wrong with a tie.
Now get off my lawn.

...in the 1964 Homecoming Game to preserve the win 19-12 and bring the Jug back home after four straight losses in the series ( three by shutout!)
After jumping out to a 19-0 lead, the defense thwarted two Minnesota 2-point conversion attempts in the fourth quarter and then stopped a late Gopher drive at the 3-yd line to perserve the win.

Chesson to Peppers to Rudock - 67yds for a score, on the first play after stuffing a fake fieldgoal attempt by Groucho Mark.

of an illiterate local Lansing lad who spent two years at MSU before dropping out.
Yeah, I can see how vandalizing it cuts to the heart of what it means to be a Sparty..

College wrestling hall of fame coach for the Spartans. If Dan Gable hadn't cancelled his recruiting visit to East Lansing because he thought he'd be too homesick that far away from Iowa, the power structure of collegiate and Olympic wrestling would have worked out very differently.
Also,one hell of of nice guy. I think of him as a bantam rooster in cowboy boots with a thick Oklahoma accent.
|41 weeks 16 hours ago||In 1931 the fourth straight shutout was against Michigan State||
but, sadly a 0-0 tie. The team went on to post two more straight shutouts that season, and then opened the next with yet another shutout - 7 straight over two seasons.
The 31 team actually was part of 2 streaks of four straight shutouts. The 1930 team closed the season with two shutouts, and the 31 team opened the season with two shutouts.

and I like them now.
An additional point in their favor is that the piping echos the Cazzie-era basketball kit as well.

But, yeah, that is obviously satisfactory to him and apparently makes him happy.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Tim hasn't done any actual reporting in 30 years||
He covers most games from his living room or the bar at Dusty's Pub. I've seem him reporting on games as if he was covering them live on the 11 pm news when I knew for a fact that he was parked on a barstool pitching yet another spot on "Staudt on Sponsors" to some hapless barkeep.
He's been coasting on a long-stale local reputation and a complete lack of ambiton for longer than most of the posters on this board have been alive. Yeah - he had the talent a generation or two ago to be a big market sportscaster. But he never had the ambition or work ethic to do anything about it. He'd be eaten alive in a market other than Lansing, where he can spend half his time covering the Pewamo-Westphalia JV baseball team.
Remember - his biggest scoop ever was: Earvin Johnson was going to sign a national letter of intent to play basketball for Johnny Orr at Michigan. And, in the past 40 years, his reporting and opinons haven't been any more accurate than that.

Probably the 1959 or 1960 season. Once upon a time, Boy Scout and Cub Scout troops around the state were invited for a game each season to "usher" at the half-filled stadium.
The tradition came to an end when the sellout string began. Missouri 1975 was the last such event .

a couple of times and have seen the stadium, but haven't attended a game there.
Pretty amazing and fun concept.
I understand that the local high schools also use this stadium, and I imagine that this setup would be a teenager's dream come true for a Friday night game.
