|4 weeks 3 days ago||McDivitt-White Corner||
I remember when it was the McDivitt-White Corner before East University was completely closed off north of South University. It was marked with a gradually rusting metal sign (at least as of the early 80s). I think the Plaza is a nicer memorial.

No one can run the clock like Spartan Bob.

This was my first thought.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||After 21 years living in Cleveland||
After 21 years living in Cleveland, I can attest to this. Cleveland Browns fans of the current generation have no concept of winning or what it might take to do so. They, and the local media, have no ability to evaluate assistant coaches, and probably lack the information necessary to do so.
They just know they don't like where they are and are always ripe to celebrate "change."

He must have been about to be fired at UT.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Is that all there is?||
Is that all there is? My athletic trainer son doesn't see anything concerning in this clip alone.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||My first thought||
I agree. Last year's OSU game against MSU was my first thought as well.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Pro se||
I took a quick look at the complaint, which shows up as a pdf document at the bottom of the article. I didn't read the content, but was struck by one fact: it was filed by the plaintiff student pro se (without a lawyer). Again, I did not read it, but it appears to be professionally done. More important, who files an action like this without a lawyer (and why wouldn't a lawyer be interested in a contingency fee on a case like this that might garner some media attention)?
Perhaps there is less to this lawsuit than meets the eye.

I had forgotten that Woody Hayes played Mr. Wilson in Dennis the Menace.

same thought process here.

You mean wicked witch of the eastes.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||Agreed||
I thought of the Air Jordan/Air Jourdan comparison immediately (and I know I am not alone). From my seat at the Stadium, it was striking. I think it is fantastic.
|42 weeks 2 days ago||The Michigan League||
My wife and I, both MGoAlums, were married in the Vandenberg Room on the second floor of the Michigan League. Our reception was across the concourse in the Hussey Room. It is a beautiful space and I think weddings in the League are much better than in the Union. The League is much less travelled and the event is more private.
For larger weddings, the League's ballroom is a good choice.
Good luck, congratulations, and of course, Go Blue!
|43 weeks 16 hours ago||1985||
I recalled the 1985 game between No. 1 Iowa and No. 2 Michigan (J. Harbaugh, QB) as a night game, but the records tell me it was a 3:30 start. It was certainly dark by the time it ended with a tight loss for the good guys.

Cargo pants hadn't become Dad gear yet because those of us in the picture hadn't become dads yet.
|51 weeks 3 days ago||Soo Locks||
The Soo Locks have been one of the most critical assets to the United States manufacturing and national security since the Civil War. Security during WWII was intense (and I think it has been ever since).
My understanding is that the real problem is that while there used to be four American locks, at this point (and for quite some time) only the Poe Lock (which was built in the late 60s replacing another lock by the same name) is wide enough to accomodate the large ore carriers that were built after it was opened. (They were built BECAUSE it was opened.) So, there is no redundancy.
Someone mentioned that the lock is fine. It may be. But it is the only one and any disruption shuts everything down. Building another lock at the Soo is long overdue.

Too bad. I am really sorry this happened, but I am glad (and not surprised) that you are standing by your long-term sponsors. I enjoy the podcasts tremendously and am glad they will continue.
|1 year 4 days ago||Great topic; Here's my list||
Whistlestop (by John Dickerson on Slate re historic Presidential elections)
Amicus (by Dahlia Lithwick on Slate regarding all things SCOTUS)
Undisclosed: The State v. Adnan Syed (excellent follow up to Serial's first season)
StarTalk Radio (the Interview with God)
|1 year 6 days ago||1981 UM v. MSU||
Two things about that game linked in this post: (1.) It was the only away game I attended as an undergrad; (2) It was the game the Michigan alums watched during the film The Big Chill.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||I agree||
I agree. The message itself is fine, assuming it is true. The concern is th emotional tone from Beilein. Is he reacting to stories made up by the press? I'd like to know. Is he frustrated with the doctors? The training staff? Caris himself? Or just the situation.
Unfortunately for him, inserting emotion into it makes it a more tantalizing story.

OMG, congratulations to Brian and MGoWife!!

And a bonus, it is in the Solon High School gym, where my kids went to high school. Notable alum: Jim Mandich.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Peppers||
It sounds as if we could really use Jabrill Peppers on offense. Is there an update on his status? Will he play?
|1 year 8 weeks ago||If not serious||
If not serious, it would have been "to dumb." #missedopportunity
|1 year 8 weeks ago||One dollar||
I thought Bill Martin worked for one dollar per year as a favor to his alma mater? Wasn't that what Bacon said in Endzone? Or was that only during the last few years of his term?
|1 year 8 weeks ago||True||
Yes, this is true. Corporations seem to "value" the fact that their executive pay scale is higher than other corporations. A corporate financial advisor I know once told me that many companies want to make sure that their executives are paid in the top 25 percent of their industry. This essentially ensures that executive pay spirals upward, without any bearing on performance.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||O'Neill?||
Where did this come from? I don't recall any incident in the OSU game involving O'Neill. Have you heard about an injury during practice?
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Get well, LSA!!||
Get well, LSA!! I miss you over on Twitter. I hope you are feeling better in time for Christmas Day.
All the best to your family as well.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Thanks||
Thanks for that comment. I hadn't tried to sign in on any page other than the front page.
I have been having the problem all morning using Chrome.

They might as well honor a successful alum.
