I've never seen that, but by the way you guys are describing it, that's definitely something I wish I had played growing up. Especially the boxing gloves.
|18 hours 20 min ago||Greg Mattison signed hat||
A spartan friend of my dad's saw Greg at a B10 function and asked for an autograph, knowing my dad would appreciate it. My dad gave it to me before he passed away.
See, not all spartans are jerks, just most of them.
I also have my replica #4 away jersey from when Jim Harbaugh was QB at Michigan. It's a little more authentic than a typical jersey in that the shoulders are sized to accommodate shoulder pads, but it's real narrow at the waist. It's too small to fit my 11 year old, so I just keep it in the closet.
I also kept my Rose Bowl ticket stub from the game we lost to Vince Young and Texas, but mostly Vince Young. That would be higher on my list if we actually won the game.
|18 hours 35 min ago||Recess||
yeah, I forgot to add the part about recess. We usually played at school on the blacktop and would come back to class with our shirts untucked if not torn, sweating all over, and your hands and clothes would get dirty from falling on the blacktop and then you'd wipe your face with your dirty hands.
I take back what I said about kicking. I think that was allowed and if you didn't like it, you just didn't play.
I saw my son and his friends playing a schoolyard game awhile back. They had a tennis ball and a wall and all sorts of rules I couldn't understand, but it made sense to them and they had a great time. Meanwhile, I was thinking, boys, there's a basketball hoop right over there. Why don't you play a real game. But I must've gotten old and forgotten that the best games are the ones you create with your buddies.

I have trouble distinguishing the MBB and MMB abbreviations. When I first saw the thread title, I thought, "wow, the Michigan Marching Band offered someone a scholarship. Times have changed."

|2 days 18 hours ago||Old QBs||
It's not completely unprecedented to play into your 40's:
I grant you that the game has changed since Warren Moon and George Blanda played, but in a lot of ways, it has become easier for QBs to play longer - rules to protect them, better nutrition and travel conditions, etc.
I'm 45 and I guarantee you I'm a better badminton player now than I was 5 years ago. Of course, I only started playing 5 years ago.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Rush||
After that, I bought their self-titled debut album thinking, this album HAS TO include Tom Sawyer. Nope, again. Finally I learned my lesson and started checking the song list. I was such a naive shopper.
I think the first non-Rush album I bought was "Out of the Cellar." RATT and roll! Hey, don't judge me, Round and Round was a rockin' tune.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Rush - Grace Under Pressure||
I remember hearing "Tom Sawyer" on the car radio and thinking I had to buy that song. When we got home, I went through the "buy 10 cassettes for a $1" mailer and found the only Rush album they had. I figured that had to be the one, but they didn't list the songs on the album. But, come on, if you are going to sell one Rush album, doesn't it have to be the one with Tom Sawyer on it? At least that's how 14 year old me thought. So I convinced my sister and dad to sign up for the thing, and I got them to allow me to "buy" Grace Under Pressure for a dime, or whatever. I got the cassette, listened to it all the way through, and I was shocked to find out it didn't contain "Tom Sawyer." I mean, even upon getting the cassette and NOT seeing "Tom Sawyer" written on the contents, I still thought that, well, maybe that isn't the name of the song. Caveat Emptor, my friends.
The first 45 I owned was a hand-me-down from my aunt of a couple Beatles songs: Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever. That's still the only Beatles stuff I've ever owned. What can I say, I'm not a fan.

I turned on BTN last night and saw MSU playing OSU in a League of Legends video game competition. I called my son into the room and told him his dream had come true, he could go to college on a video game scholarship. I then made some joke about going to MSU and OSU to play video games.
I did not make an OP on the MGoBoard about it.

I watched him a fair amount of time the second time I watched the spring game. I thought he did well. I wouldn't be surprised to see him be a multi-year starter. He reminds me of those linemen Iowa gets that makes me wonder, why can't we get some of those guys? Well, we may have found one.

It was a long time ago, so I don't remember the specifics. It was probably a link from a Bill Simmons or ESPN.com article.
Did anyone else notice on the previews (/advertisement) HBO did before GoT last night, Bill Simmons got an ~1 second long screen shot for his show? In a 2-3 minute long montage of shows, they gave Bill 1 second. Seems fitting.

|6 days 20 hours ago||Kanye's music||
If his performance on SNL is any indication of his "music," I'd say I'm not a fan of his noise. He's a noisician, there's nothing musical about his dreck that I'm familiar with.
|6 days 20 hours ago||I think his producers make good music||
and then they throw him out there as the lead singer because the girls go crazy for him. I have heard 2 of his songs and the music is poppy so I can see how kids like it, but his voice is terrible. It's just flat and nasally.
|1 week 2 hours ago||Totally unqualified?||
He was a three year captain at Michigan, so leadership skills, check.
He played four years under Beilein so he understands the system better than a current coach from another program, check.
He can probably recruit a little bit too:
You still think he's "totally unqualified?" Let's check his resume:
He's smart, he can shoot, he can shoot free throws and threes, he can rebound, he hustles, he knows how to take a charge. He has experience with the NCAA tournament and he's a proven winner. Come on, man, think outside the box a little. I'm not saying make him the lead assistant, but there are two spots open. I'd take him in a heartbeat for that second second chair.
And just so you don't think this would be completely unprecedented, Marquette's new head coach, Steve Wojohowski (sp?) graduated from Duke in '98 and two years later was on Krzyyzski's (sp?) staff as an assistant coach.
And I'm not supporting him because I liked watching him play basketball. What an asinine comment. I've played and coached my fair share of basketball, and I've attended numerous camps and coaching clinics. I know a little something about the game.

That's gotta be me. I'm ST and I'm a player.
|1 week 16 hours ago||No evidence he can coach?!?||
Have you ever watched basketball? It's not like football where you are given a play and told to run it. Basketball requires that you have a coach on the court. There are only five guys playing at any one time. One of those guys takes on the leadership/coaching role and gets the guys in the right positions and runs the offense. He wasn't a point guard, but his leadership skills were obvious to anyone who followed his career at Michigan, and he's familiar with Beilein's system. I wouldn't be so quick to discount him just because he hasn't followed the traditional career path. Harbaugh would have been a great hire before he coached at Stanford. It just would have taken someone in the AD's office with some guts to make a non-traditional hire.

the Purple Pain.
It's such a shame our friendship had to end
Purple pain, purple pain.
Little Red Corvette may be the first song where I listened to it and thought this is the greatest song ever. (That was soon followed by Tom Sawyer.) I was 12 at the time it came out. Many have followed, but there will always only be one first "greatest song ever."
Friends and I tried to sneak into Purple Rain with some girls when we were 14. We didn't really care about the movie, just that the girls wanted to see it. An usher busted us and made us watch the movie we paid for, The Philadelphia Experiment, not to be confused (which I often do) with the movie, "Philadelphia" starring Tom Hanks that was released years later.
