I would trade a couple of spots down in the US News rankings to beat MSU at EL this year.

the overriding purpose of a university is to educate and promote research and scholarship and not win football games. The value of my degree in the business and academic marketplaces is based in substantial part on the prestige and standing of my university, not its ability to field a winning football team. In fact, I would go further and say that it is the current prestige and standing of the university and not what it was when I went there.

I'm not all that interesting.

It's funnier the second time.

Woodson was 1st in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southwest, Midwest and Far West regions and Manning was 1st in (surprise!) the South. And that says it all.

Sometimes I believe that the headline writers go for it and see if they can get one past the editors.

He says that all of the coaches are evaluated each year at the end of their seasons. Or something like that.

He didn't just change the bad play call, he changed the bad play caller.

I started watching Premier League matches last year and chose Arsenal for my rooting interest for no real reason other than they were not the Yankees (with all the championships) even if they seemed to have a history with some success, and I had to have a rooting interest. I haven't joined the American fan club, but I understand that the local branch gathers at Conor O'Neill's, and it sounds like a good way to be a part of the larger fanbase even while most of it is on the other side of the Atlantic.
I have to admit, I cared nothing for soccer for most of my life but had some interest in the 2010 World Cup because I was in Europe during the semi-final and finals and everyone around me cared a great deal about it. Seeing all of the national flags waving over the apartments of expats in Malta and then the Spanish nationals singing and chanting while wearing their jerseys and waving flags at the foot of the Spanish Steps in Rome was remarkable. This so-called "football" seemed like kind of a big deal to everyone else. The convenience of the weekly NBC broadcast, recently discovering SiriusXM FC, the relative success of the US men's national team and the advent of the Detroit City FC has me wanting to learn more about a game that suddenly seems so much more complicated and intricate than I ever gave it credit for before. I wish that I had discovered it years ago, although I realize I would not have been able to really enjoy it until all of these things (the internet, cable and radio broadcasts and a World Cup in prime time) came to pass. But I agree with Don: Michigan footbal over the other kind. Always.

Is true to your name

I was puzzled why Betty White was on a White Power shirt. Bad joke? (Betty "White Power"?)

I like it better when she has been shopping for bras.

attending in person but for the potential consumers watching the B1G broadcast.
I would love to attend a football practice yet, for some reason, I couldn't muster the energy to drive 20 minutes to watch this one. And I skipped it on TV, too. Still, I expect I will attend every game this year despite The Worst Home Schedule Ever.

with your scholarship. I don't get it. It's like getting paid in coupons redeemable for Starbucks coffee and nothing else. Doesn't feel (or taste) like wages to me. Guess I will dig in and read the opinion.

Full disclosure. I have dual citizenship. I know I shouldn't say it but I will anyway. Anecdotal evidence.
Anytime my uncle would hear the TV reporter say that there was a cold front coming out of Canada, he would invariably point out it probably originated in Alaska.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||OK. I looked.||
The second best thing about that image collection is that "clean" is applied literally in more than a few.

The Super Bowl. And it did suck.

if this was still 2013. Zombie practice apocalypse. Or at least rampant pink eye.
|29 weeks 1 day ago||But but but what about MSU's Heisman candidate?||
Connor Cook has dropped from 10:1 odds to 18:1 in the January Heisman race (I am told by the Sparties that it is much better than the September Heisman) but he is on the list at Bovada.

Taken in the '89 draft by the Warriors. Awesome.

but it has too many features.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||It is.||
I'm not on Facebook either. I am only on MGoBlog. And LinkedIn.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||Even weirder||
I haven't logged into my Twitter account in 2 years because I forgot the login and password and didn't care about Twitter enough to try and figure it out (at 50 I don't get its appeal). I guess we just think alike.

make them sit at the kids' table in the press box with John U. Bacon next season.
Serious question: is the Daily routinely invited to all of these events? I assume so, but don't really know. How much control does the athletic department assert over the Daily's access?
EDIT: Thanks jmblue. There were no replies when I started my post, but you answered it.
|30 weeks 2 hours ago||Ummm. No they don't.||
The RCMB is righteously pissed.
|30 weeks 13 hours ago||Maybe the athletic department but not Hoke||
It was a press conference, not a Congressional hearing. I am going out on a limb here, but I think Hoke was telling a white lie to spare one of his players his privacy. You can argue whether white lies are moral, but I believe his intentions were to protect a player from the media. Hoke does seem to care an awful lot about his players. He does not have a responsibility to you or me of complete disclosure about students just because they are also athletes.
