your standard for an imperfect male specimen? Just curious.
|4 weeks 6 hours ago||Hard to believe||
that most of this year's recruiting class hadn't even been born when President Marshall liberated Air Force One from those terrorists in 1997.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Prodigal means wasteful||
It's just someone who spends lavishly; the word itself has nothing to do with going away and returning.

...is MSU's miraculous comeback in the Cotton Bowl two weeks ago.

without completing a 4-year college degree.

Should have before, too. 21-13 wouldn't be too bad with the way they love those 2-pt conversions.

They beat FSU by 39 and had two crucial drops kill promising drives. They don't need much time to score; I think they'll get back in this.

|13 weeks 13 hours ago||He probably didn't expect Hoke to be retained||
But you can at least respect a kid for waiting until the verdict comes in before announcing what he's probably felt for some time. The players who decommit mid-season just added negative press to a bad situation and made it that much more likely that the staff wouldn't survive the season.
This is the more appropriate way to do it, I think.

Way better than flying coach on a private jet.
|14 weeks 15 hours ago||Good reference, Muttley||
Much rather have the Cadillac.

|29 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah||
|29 weeks 4 days ago||FIRE SCHLISSEL!||
and make athletics part of the University's mission statement!

for Firefox and Chrome.
|31 weeks 21 hours ago||The phrase "hot seat" is a gimmick||
It's idle chatter, fuel for the sports media fire that would otherwise die out during a long offseason. As long as you have people whose livelihoods depend on sports-talk ratings, you'll have lots of speculative coverage with dead spots that need to be filled. Just like 24-hour cable news networks and election cycles that last close to two years.
If we win 10 games this year, the narrative changes to Hoke as a program savior, and the pendulum will swing back. Their hyperbole will focus on "The Renaissance in Ann Arbor" and the "Birth of a New 10-year war."
Just how it goes -- best not to take it too seriously.

that almost got you killed in Germany.
|31 weeks 3 days ago||ABC||
|31 weeks 3 days ago||Reminds me of GRE probability problems||
A fair coin will be tossed twice and a fair die with sides numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 will be rolled twice. What is the probability that at least one head will be tossed and at least one number greater than 1 will be rolled?
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Agree with Mr. Yost||
Everybody's exaggerating how bad the area is. Just don't go a mile south or east if poorer neighborhoods bother you. There's a pretty tight bubble all around campus patrolled by security, and students have no problem walking around at night.
As for UCLA, Westwood is appealing for tourists, but it tends to lose its luster once you live in LA. It's actually quite boring for a major university campus.

Good luck getting into the Midwest Ivy League if you don't know it's vs. its.
|32 weeks 4 days ago||Genuine question||
Where does the "largest living alumni base" stat come from? I've heard this before, but I'm not sure how we get that distinction when other universities enroll (and presumably graduate) more students year in and year out. Is it an alumni club membership thing? Do Michigan Men substantially outlive the rest of the population?
Anybody know what this is about?
|33 weeks 1 day ago||I'll take the under on your yes/no question||
Any coach with 10+ years at the same school is an anomaly now, probably more so by then.
|33 weeks 6 days ago||Good point about Golston||
I forgot about him. He was actually the QB we fared better against, too.
|34 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, that seems likely.||
I can see Urban Meyer orchestrating a 50-person bar fight and planting cocaine in a police car just to avoid telling a kid his scholarship is going to someone else. Cause he's not just a sleazy football coach, he's also a Batman villain.
|36 weeks 3 days ago||It's more like 120 posts on jersey numbers||
once you ignore the nostalgic comments about getting laid in the 70s.

Guess we can toss out that trick play.
