blame the fools who allowed a simple majority to determine whether they stay or go. Once they joined, they should have required a 2/3 majority to leave, or some such fraction as we've done with our Constitution.* Major things should not be determined willy-nilly by a simple majority. Otherwise, you get a case where popular opinion swings back and forth and you get them coming and going and coming and going, and it's just a major headache for the rest of the world.
*I'm betting some Brits wish they could have been able to filibuster the Brexit plan.

I'm in Taiwan this week and I'm watching Tokyo play Chinese Taipei in baseball. The Tokyoan team has triple digits on their uniforms. 007 was playing third base. Another Michigan tradition is borrowing and improving on others' traditions (the wave, the winged helmets.) 1A might not move the needle, but 007? Where do I sign up?

Our traditions are born from our innovations. We're the first to do this or that. The next logical innovation - something I've been advocating for on this blog for several years for - is hexadecimal numbers on the uniforms. That lets you keep the retired numbers without having to have numerous duplicates on the team, and think of the recruiting advantages: come to UofM and be the A1 wide receiver.

I remember that SI article. They went way out of their way to emphasize that Cooper's name is pronounced "Coo-puh." Sadly, try as I might, I've never been able to forget that.

I prefer underrated players to lower rated players, because the underrated players are, you know, better than their rating.

Vs Steuber/Stueber/Stuebber to see who replaces Rudddock

Scotland is the Maryland of the UK?

I saw Dumars on an airplane many years ago. He was sitting in first class. I was not. So I didn't get a reality check on his height.

|1 week 4 days ago||You're getting him confused||
It's Tim Izzo and Mike D'anTonio, or something. All I know is their QB used to be Kork Coupons.

can you check your basketball superguides to see if that would be the first Nojel to play for us?
|1 week 5 days ago||I approve||
|1 week 5 days ago||OK||
but John Kolesar has to be Dothraki.
|1 week 5 days ago||Tommy Armstrong||
that has to be Tommy Armstrong, III, right? How is it possible that Tommy Armstrong, Jr. still has any eligibility left? Seems like he's been there throwing ducks forever.

|2 weeks 12 hours ago||Mustafa Khaleefah question||
What Khalasar horde does he ride with? (With a name like that, he's got to be Dothraki, right?)
P.S. Is that #596 guy related to Hodor?
|2 weeks 13 hours ago||Agreed||
Given that my mom still lives in East Lansing, I'm going to have to agree with you there.
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||Land Grant Trophy||
and I think MSU and PSU should be permanent rivals and forced to play for the Land Grant Trophy every year. Plus, we need to keep hope alive that a meteor will one day wipe out both teams and obnoxious fanbases.

I didn't see any ALL CAPS or EXCLAMATION POINTS!!! As such, that hardly qualifies as a rant, mini or not.

He's got to be on Mt. Rushmore for this alone:
He's like a combination of Denard, Woodson, and Zoltan Mesko.

great show. Can't agree more with that take.

Man, I could really go for a Starbucks, you know?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Cain||
I wouldn't get my hopes up for landing him. I suspect he's headed to one of the New York schools. He seems destined to play in the Big Apple.

Those are just GARDEN variety puns

I believe that's how Dave Brandon refers to himself
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Population||
FWIW, Colorado's population is about 55% of Michigan's so I'd expect, all else being equal, for them to have half as many kids in the top 300. Going into 2017, the state of Michigan has 7 kids in the top 300 while Colorado has 2, which is almost 2.5. I guess with small sample sizes, things like having 0 Coloradoans ranked happens.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||#1 CO player is NR nationally||
to two ranking services. That surprised me. I know Colorado isn't a huge state, but it's got Denver and a few other cities. It's total population is more than half of Michigan's.

I was thinking of the deep crevasse that is Lucy Pinder's cleavage.

my kid's friend had one of those at a birthday party and they could at least launch it across the street.
