A nice, safe and comfortable home for misfit Wolverines.

Negative selling of just about anything is not likely to work.

I guess that's one way to put it.

Ride of the Valkyries.
Easy mistake to make.

When St. Elmo's is one short block from the stadium.

We didn't fire that guy.

ignore Sparty tomorrow.

|7 weeks 6 days ago||From your name ... be it real or pseudonym||
It seems likely you spent some time at Yost, as well.
So I have a question for you.
Do the name Mike Zuke mean anything to yuhs?
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I hate to admit this, but .....||
I saw every one of these teams play.
Missing here is the 73-74 team which was one of the great Michigan TEAMS of all time, any sport. Picked to finish 8th in the conference, they won the Big Ten and finished as high as 6 in the polls.
Campy Russell, C. J. Kupec, Waymon Britt, Steve Grote, Joe Johnson and pretty much no bench with the exception of Lionel "The Main Train" Worrell played a style of basketball that combined just a vicious, nasty, mean spirited defense with the single most innovative offense I have ever seen in a lifetime of watching basketball. This includes the wonderfully innovative offenses of John Beilein.
I'd set them at #6, behind (in order) 1989 ( self explanatory), 1965 (lost to UCLA in the finals) 2013, 1976 (lost to undefeated Indiana in the finals), 1964 (lost to Duke in the round of four, beat Kansas State in the consolation game)

|12 weeks 18 hours ago||Quit bitching||
I ambled over to "The Only Colors' during the darkness. Evidently they were no where near their resource limit.
|15 weeks 18 hours ago||Or, we could just lose Rutgers||
And play a true round robin.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||Nicely done||
An enthusiastic upvote for you.

The fossil fuel industry has just a teeny-weenie little bit more to lose than those ALL POWERFUL GOVERNMENT SCIENTISTS have to gain; comparing media and/or data manipulation between the two over the topic is comical.
You want to compare Bbbbbillions and up, to the Millions at a time handed out not to ALL POWERFUL GOVERNMENT SCIENTISTS, but the input you miss is the hundreds of thousands of people with their finger in the till throughout the fossil fuel business. Beyond a doubt, the boys at the top are clipping huge coupons, but there are a huge number of mouths to feed.
Compare those Bbbbbillions with the paltry Tens of millions being thrown around at contract scientists who are for the post part University Professors. Let say you're some mid level prof at a mid level Ivy league University and you just brought in !0/20 mill into you department. You have to hand over a nice sized piece to the U of course and hire some minimum wage advanced candidate for peanuts. "Good news tho Big Fella, you are going to get your name on the cover." For the most part the rest is yours to manage/keep as you see fit. Do you really think that the guys in this position are going to uncover evidence of, NEVER MIND, THERE"S REALLY NOTHING GOING ON HERE? Hell no!!!! They're going to suss out some issues that will enable a quick opportunity to go back in for some more grant money.
This is why the abuse of peer review is so revealing. If you only seek review from your buds and/or like minded folks who know that they can come to you for your blessing, the entire procees becomes the corrupt cesspool that we enjoy today.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Of the grand delusions of our time .....||
This one here is right up there.
"However the clean energy revolution will empower individuals and eliminate two monopolies (gas and electricity); financial resources will be more efficiently leveraged."
The instant that "clean energy" in any of it's forms, becomes within sniffing distance of economically viable, which is to say profitable. The wealth that controls the petroleum industry, which by the way is the same wealth that controls food distribution, media and of course both political parties will simply move in and acquire it, industry by industry.
That the good people of the left cannot grasp this most simple of economic constants speaks volumes about their ability to reason.
Secondly, electricital utilities are government protected monopolies and as such, laws are already in place concerning requirements for throwing site generated electricity (think houses, buildings, farms) back into the grid along with requirements to connect to the grid in the first place.
Finally, with regards to the manufacture of batteries, turbines ..... pick your "clean energy apperatus?
That would be GE among others. I don't see those guys offering up a raft of "empowerment".
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Careers are ruined disproving ACG||
There, fixed it.
Money in bulk is being made, across many fields, by making up research and then failing to make it available for review to anybody but your bestest buddies. This practice, by the way has been a lament of real scientists about the state of the science business across the board for some time now.
There is Life Changing Money in government approved research, which means of course research that supports government goals. Government of course don't like to hear the shit they don't like to hear, thus the abuse of supposedly protected whistleblowers not to mention our brand new ministry of truth signed into law just yesterday. That one there being just a glorious example of reaching across the aisle and by-partisan cooperation which of course could absolutely never happen on absolutely any other issue. Two absolutes.
In my business, the joke about the MAI designation which stands for "Member Appraisal Institute", is that it really stands for "Made As Instructed". The business of science has largely gone the same way.

Play a true round robin conference schedule.
Lose the Championship game.

Seems Harbaugh is about as fed up with some of the morons at the freep as are most of the rest of us.

Grand Funk Railroad.
If the question is frontman, second place isn't even close. maybe Steve Marriot who had a similar vibe, but nowhere near the raw sexual energy.
A powerhouse of a live act, Grand Funk Railroad was ubiquitous up and down I-75 both before and after they hit the big time. I can't even begin to count the times I saw them.
Farner's greatness lies in his power over the female audience member. And unlike some other bands of the day, the women showed up for Grand Funk shows in droves. It was an awesome thing. Usually there were anywhere between 6 and 20, depending on the size of the show, flashing the stage, and really anyone else who might express some interest. By the end of Heart Breaker, the little shirtless dervish had every last woman in the place drop dead READY!!!!! The first time I witnessed it, i was completely stunned at the rampant sexual energy hammering the place. I vowed to go back every chance I could.
And best of all, since there was nowhere near enough Farner to soak up the demand, let me simply say that it was just a very strong opportunity for anyone that wasn't just completely flat out self checked.
Check it out. The additional hoot in this video is Don Brewer's quite likely, single most unfortunate wardrobe decision in the entire history of rock and roll. Right up there with the Rascals.

Yeah, yeah. written by Sparty.
Great movie still.
|35 weeks 3 days ago||I'd have Cazzie any Glen Rice both in my top 10||
Maybe top 5. Hell you might have to make Cazzie the greatest of them all. On top of everything else he accomplished, in his spare time, he built Crisler Arena.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||Looking forward to that ultimatum||
Isn't a penultimatum something like, "You better stop that right now or I'm gonna come over there and threaten to kick your ass if you don't stop it at that point in the future"?
I think it is.

Is the single greatest college football player to wear #2. The only thing Deion Sanders did appreciably better than Chuck was run his mouth.
A small quibble, but how on earth do these guys remember Dewey Selmon while honoring Leroy Selmon and forget that the oldest Selmon brother Lucious played middle guard between his two brothers on what might have been the greatest collegiate defensive line of all time ... Tsk.
|41 weeks 18 hours ago||Pretty tough to take this kind of a list seriously||
when it ranks Midland ahead of Traverse City, Holland and all of the west side lake towns. I'm in Midland a couple times a year, it ain't terrible but I'm taking most anywhere Michigan before Midland.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||Nicely done.||
That is all.
|43 weeks 3 days ago||It is unelected and completely unaccountable||
As laws are passed by elected MEPs, but regulations are created by unelected beauracrats much as they are in this country. It is the behind the scenes anti democratic process along with the loss of control of national currencies that is responsible for the ongoing demise of Europe.
