"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

The big difference, that you are all forgetting, is that Florida State is really good right now. We were really, REALLY, bad in 2008. Like unbelievably bad. The coaches didn't WANT to show the public what was going on.

Yes yes, but in comparison to West Virginia, just about everyone is non-redneck.

I've been here almost 6 years, and I actually love the weather - never too hot (except for the past week), never too cold. It's just that Husky stadium is built in a way that the winds swirl with the rain and make some games worthy of a fandom badge of endurance. Diehard Husky buddies of mine have decided to leave at halftime due to shitty conditions in the past. But when its nice out - holy shit that view of the lake, with the Husky Armada out there is pretty special. Fun fact - if you arrive via boat, you can head back to your vessel at halftime and fortify yourself with liquid courage.

The drizzle is awesome and the fog is breathtaking.

Stanford? The Cardinal seems like a better comparison to Northwestern, except way more successful. Hell, their Notre Dame might just be Notre Dame.
Definitely not Boise State. Say what you will about ND - they DO have both academic and football clout and tradition. For the sake of comparison, Boise State is more like a non-redneck West Virginia.

and of course I missed the 'sail' part of that. yeah, going to the game on a boat is awesome, but the weather concerns still remain.

It's high quality, but a) its on parking lots - I miss the golf course and b) the weather often makes gameday miserable - few things worse than driving rain and swirling winds in 40-degree weather.

As a current Seattle resident, and masters student at UW, the announcement of the home and home was cause for celebration, even if I do have to wait over half a decade. While Husky Stadium is loud as fuck and has perhaps the best view in college football, its nowhere as awe-inspiring as walking into Michigan stadium for a big game. I'm dying to show off the Big House to friends I've made locally once 2021 rolls around.
One reason why we enjoy the UW series is that they're basically us, with the M flipped and slightly darker shades of maize and blue (gold and purple), and not quite as much tradition. It's a large research university in a liberal city that prides itself on tradition. They even have the same dynamic with their local rivals. Wazzou is their Sparty - they even have a term called 'Cougin It' which correlates directly to 'Sparty No!' And then Oregon is their Ohio - down to the big O, generally moronic fans, lower academic standards, etc. Its frankly uncanny.

He's not a robot without emotions, he's not what you see
He's come to help you with your problems, so we can be free
He's not a hero, he's not a savior, forget what you know
He's just a man whose football team must reclaim the Rose Bowl
Reclaim the Rose Bowl, we all need Rose Bowl
I need Rose Bowl, we all need Rose Bowl

I started in 1994. There was literally a scrollable list of about 40 websites. I would always surf the UC Berkeley dinosaur museum. In my defense, I WAS 7.
But cmon, I got to use a computer and learn about dinosaurs at the SAME TIME? Hell yeah.

The way this guy's mind works - the way his brain is wired - is unlike anything I've ever seen.
I can't wait for the next John U Bacon book, talking about the Harbaugh years and beyond.

My dad would take me to games in the student section when we was a 40+ yr old MBA student. You'll be fine as long you're wearing the right colors and cheer for the home team.

As a 19-year old freshman, you haven't turned out at all yet haha.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||As someone who went off to||
As someone who went off to camps 10-15 years ago, I'd say they were some of the best learning experiences I ever had. More than just 'knowledge' or whatever, you learn social skills, teamwork, independence, etc. Plus its a lot of fun once you make friends and start doing stuff.
It'll be great for your mom as well (she'll learn how to deal with him eventually moving out of the house).
Camps I went to: CAEN (Umich Engin), All-State (Interlochen), CTD (Northwestern), and a bunch of random camps associated with UM.
I am a nerd.

Don't forget that these are reputation rankings, not rankings of the school itself. Michigan clocked in at #17 on last years list. My alma mater was #1 :D.

Exactly. OU WISHES that those kids had only destroyed property.
50-100K in property damage is tiny. This is going to cost the university millions in poor PR.
