My first year in grad school I would grab two bean burritos and a Mountain Dew from the East U. Taco Bell and sneak it back to my study carrel as I questioned my own existence.
A couple years later, Bandito's hit the scene and had a huge bean burrito you could get for takeout for $1.95.
And never forget Jerusalem Garden's $2 falafel. Am I dating myself?
Seoul Garden's bibimbap in hot stone bowl is the best I've had anywhere.

Which is cool. After last year, I'm indifferent on style points. And I'm always amused by Brian's seething hatred for MSU, cloaked in rational discourse.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Yes||
I'll take ironic thread titles for $2000, Alex

Was going to be about Earl:
|40 weeks 1 day ago||Getting NFL exposure on Fox||
Which he couldn't do with ESPN. Love Spielman as an analyst, and love nothing more than his audible distress when he watches poor linebacker play.

The night Brandon resigned, did anything happen between his last meeting and resignation?
|1 year 37 weeks ago||On softball...||
Fun to watch, because of...
I don't love homerball (unless of course it's Michigan doing the dinging), and umpiring could be better (always), but dang it's fun to watch a women's softball game that matters.

And, there is a Cracker Barrel in Yuma, AZ

I heard JoePa tell a joke.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||It's all about Brandon||
It's all about Brandon putting himself, and the athletic department, above the rest of the university. He really did think he was the straw that stirred the drink.

High end jock sniffer.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||DAB: An elitist who believed in elitism||
He did everything he could to make Michigan elite, in his mind. Continuing to build athletic palaces, charging exorbitant fees to get the "Michigan experience", etc. I'm sure he saw himself, and his department, as above the people -- the hoi polloi are to be manipulated, not listened to. He fed the separation of athletic life from campus life.
I'm not so naive to think that athletes aren't special and don't deserve special treatment. But Brandon basically divorced his department from the overall mission of the university. Athletics are PART of campus life; Brandon wanted athletics to be its own fiefdom where he was lord. Goodbye, DAB.

Maybe if we were Purdue?

|2 years 17 weeks ago||This is not Woody going for two||
As mentioned above, we could have tried tackling. Also, MSU has chance to make CoFoPO and big victories help. No idea WTF with the spear. Dantonio is the Stannis Baratheon righteous prick of the B1G. Unfortunately he's a good coach whose teams have been kicking Michigan's asses. There has been no threat. At some point this will change but there's no moral high horse here. Keep taking the lumps and move on.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Strong, important message from DB||
The release represents a strong forging of an important relationship with U-M students, who are an important strength of the University as it forges forward in its important mission of strong academics.

Start with Snow Crash then this, then Cryptonomicon. If you have hours to spend, go after his latest stuff.

3rd quarter offense
|2 years 21 weeks ago||Inexcusable||
If Brandon forced the MMB to wear "I'm Thinking Arby's" hats and do a halftime tribute to Kraft, it would be 100 times more acceptable than this. This is insulting to everyone, and it was done with foresight and intention! I'm normally a fan of patience but this weekend is the final straw.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||I never f-bomb on the board||
But that's my reaction exactly. What a pile of horseshit. No mention at all of the head injury, and acts as if trainers are the ones responsible. Nussmeier for sure saw Morris woozy; not clear about Hoke. If anything I worry Nuss will be scapegoated and Fort BrandHoke refortified. F them all. Hoke is responsible and admits nothing. Not my idea of the 'Michigan Man'. Stephen Ross, are you still proud of this program?
|2 years 21 weeks ago||Nussmeier waved for Morris to get down||
From the view in section 41: After the hit and with Morris woozy, Nuss waved for Morris to go down and take an injury time out. That's when Morris waved off Nuss. Nuss clearly knew by apparently didn't have the authority or desire to pull him.

But if they're doing that with the numbers, put the shadowed lines on the flying wing on the helmet as well. More consistent look.
|2 years 44 weeks ago||$295 for crap?||
Sweet Polly Purebred I had no idea student tickets were so much. Hmm, looking at the inflation adjusted price for my first ever student season ticket that included games against Notre Dame, Florida State, and tOSU, it's about $125. Student tickets should be $25 a game, max.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||In effect, yes||
Take chart with whatever players you have. Then stretch or shrink horizontally so the chart ends at 25.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||He normalized all classes to a size of 25||
That makes comparisons easier within and across years. It discounts the impact of serial SEC-style over signing but the advantages of interpretation are enormous.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Fantastic work||
The visuals really tell the story well. Just wish the story wasn't as good for tOSU!

Sad to see it go. Didn't their keg volume plummet after the new driver's license with deposit law/rule?

FWIW (not much!) his younger brother Rusty played at U-M from 88-92.
