Any reaction from them is an acknowledgement.

And Coke Zero. It is good. Don't judge.

A good portion of that OSU 10-1 record against Michigan was against a team that was very Purdue-like.

Here as well!!!

Is the man. Also turned Muskegon into a state high school football power. I believe there are great things ahead for him.

Your first point is incorrect. Only some of the regents/trustees at Michigan public universities are elected (for example, U of M and MSU). However, the trustees at GVSU, Ferris, and several others are appointed by the Gov.

|27 weeks 6 days ago||When Bo retired......||
When I first read that Bo was retiring after the 1990 Rose Bowl Game (1989 season) I got a little misty. I was in my Junior year and this announcement hit me out of nowhere. The funny thing is that if something like this happened today we would probably have a good idea well in advance of the actual announcment. But in that era, unless you were an "insider" you didn't know until you read it in print. Took my breath away.

The Sparties have been insufferable on the West Side the past few years.....

|45 weeks 4 days ago||I can tell you.....||
that after having season tickets for 23 years as an alum (and four as a student) I decided not to renew this year. I can also tell you that the general public season ticket holders have received the same letters and e-mails as the students with the same tone. First the deadline for paying my "preferred seat donation" came and went. I thought that was it, but no, it was not. I received three extensions to pay this fee, one of them was a second hard copy letter. To top that off, just last week I received one final e-mail stating that I still had time to renew my season tickets if I so desired.
Am very curious to see how this plays out.
|46 weeks 19 hours ago||My biggest problem with this schedule.....||
is that the national championship game will always be on a Monday night. Unlike the national championship basketball game, the national championship football game will take three and a half hours to complete. This completely sucks for us working folks (and students) that have to get up early on Tuesday. I know that having it on a Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon would conflict with the NFL Playoffs, but there has to be a better solution than a Monday night.
Maybe I just need to move to the Pacific time zone......

Graduated high school in June and started my freshmen year at U of M that fall. What I remember most about that football season is being undefeated and ranked #2, I believe, and losing AT HOME to a fairly mediocre Minnesota team. Still stings to this day.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Outstanding!||
Number 8 was my first Michigan game in person (HS junior) and number 3 was my fresmen year. I will never forget being on the field after that game in 1986.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||This made me LOL.....||
It's "Queen" to make it funny!
|1 year 17 weeks ago||I have two for sale.....||
I will be out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and need to sell my two tickets to OSU. If you are interested shoot me an e-mail: email@example.com
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Amen||
To that. Hell, I am even listening to Nickelback. Anything for an edge.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Anything.....||
With alcohol. Right now it is coconut vodka and Coke Zero. Yep, sweet and girlie for me!
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Whipped cream||
Vodka and Coke Zero. It tastes good. I am a pussy. Fuck you! ;-)
|2 years 38 weeks ago||Oooops.....||
I forgot my diploma!
|2 years 38 weeks ago||There are so many....||
I have all of my ticket stubs from 1997, including all of the home games and the game I attended at PSU. I also have the paper from 1986 when I was a freshman with the headline "Harbaugh's Rosy Promise Comes True", after he guaranteed a victory at Ohio to go to the Rose Bowl.
But I think my favorite item is my Bo bobblehead that is still sealed in the package. I don't even know how old it is. I got it from my mother-in-law and she had no idea when she acquired it!

Leyland without the Tigers is a sub-.500 manager. He is truly awful.
Francona would be nice.....
|2 years 43 weeks ago||There is a fairly easy way||
to remedy the conference champion issue. Simply eliminate the conference championship games and have each conference team play one or two more conference games during the season. This is how conference champions were determined for decades before the SEC instituted the conference championship game.
Is this perfect? Not exactly because you could still end up with tied conference records for teams that might not have played one another during the season. But, again, this was an issue for decades and various tie breakers were used to select the champion.
The point is, without the conference championship game you are less likely to end up with the scenario you outlined above.
Ultimately it will be difficult to come up with a system that works well for only a four or six team playoff. If the decision is to shorten the regular season by a couple of games and go to eight teams, or even sixteen(!!!) teams you could have slots for "at large" teams, so teams that deserve to be in the playoff are not left out.

Junior in 1989 when we won the title. There were a lot of people on South U. but it was far more festive than destructive. It was a heck of a party. Somewhere buried in my boxes of college memoribilia I have a part of the tail light assembly from the taxi that was flipped over!!!

The fuck I can get my h ds on!

Enough! Ice Hole schnapps. Great stuff.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||I love this||
idea. Get your freshmen into a game situation without burning the red shirt. That idea is golden.
I agree that it will never fly, but the current model is not the greatest. Why not look at ways to improve it?
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Yes.....||
Yes, it was. I have never been in a building with so much noise. Even thinking about it now makes the hair on my arms stand up just a bit. Fantastic night.

National Brownfields Conference perhaps? I was there myself. Just curious.
