About ten years ago I saw a Dodge Omni (or maybe it was a Plymouth Horizon) with a "Yeah, It's Got Hemi" bumper sticker. I was amused by the bumper sticker and kind of amazed to see a fifteen+ year old Omni still around.

This is really dumb - if you look at their data set they only include cities with names that begin with the letters N through Z.

Northen Arizona did play Divison I hockey for a few years in the 1980s. The program was cut, probably in part due to travel expenses. US Interntational (San Diego) did as well.

Other than a few too many unforced turnovers in the first half, a really strong game for the women.
Does anyone know what the technical was called for right after Stony Brook scored the first basket?

Can we just put all the new teams in a separate divsion that plays for a slot in the "Give me all your money Bowl" ?

Going back a ways - Stephan Humphreys. I believe he had a dual major in engineer and some sort of biology/pre med program and went on to medical school after his NFL career.

|5 years 21 weeks ago||First win in Columbus since||
First win in Columbus since 2001 and the first ever regular season sweep of OSU. This is turning into a quite a season by the women - its their fourth win this season over a ranked opponent.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Michigan hadn't beaten OSU in||
Michigan hadn't beaten OSU in women's hoops since 2001. It was good to see - OSU was frustrated and lost their compsure a few times during the game. A more talented team was beaten by one that played together and overcame adversity (including the loss of one of their starters, Nya Jordan). Congrats to the lady wolverines.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||The Detroit loss was||
The Detroit loss was frustrating, but in general the team is playing fairly well this year. A couple of things to remember - this is a very young team - 1 senior, 3 juniors, 5 sophomores and a freshman. Add in a couple of key losses from last year - Krista Phillips (graduated) and Dayeesha Hollins (transfer) and I think they were bound to struggle a bit.
Their other losses were against very good teams - Xavier (#5), Texas A&M (#7), Iowa State (#21) and Marquette (unranked but currently #24 in Jeff Sagarin's ratings).
I expect them to be in the middle of the pack in the Big 10 this year and have a shot at the NIT - I think the NCAA is probably a reach...

Not runners up, but Jim Harbaugh finished 3rd and Anthony Carter 4th.

Jolly Pumpkin has an interesting wheat IPA on tap right now that is worth trying. Much as I like Corner Brewery, as mentioned above it is owned by the same folks as Arbor Brewing and has pretty much the same beers on tap.

There's plenty in this to disagree with. Even if you believe that Penn State football has suffered, some people in State College believe joining the Big Ten has been positive:
|6 years 2 weeks ago||I think in scenario #1 the||
I think in scenario #1 the Big 12 loses both its BCS bid and its NCAA basketball autobid. The rule is something like a conference has to have at least six members with five consecutive years of membership. The basketball bit wouldn't be a big deal (they'd likely get more than one at large big), but losing the BCS bid would be.
|6 years 13 weeks ago||The game tomorrow is against||
The game tomorrow is against Northwestern who they have already faced three times this year - two losses in the regular season and a win in the Big 10 tournament.
One minor note - this is the third round/sweet 16. If they win, Michigan will be in the quarterfinals against the winner of Syracuse/VCU.

Rather disappointing - I think the year before they had Walter Cronkite.
Here's a list of speakers going back to 1989:

Its not obvious from the interview, but he plays for Springfield High School in Toledo, not in the city of Springfield (north of Dayton).
|6 years 27 weeks ago||Maybe in the future?||
I think the University of Toronto would be an excellent addition - if we were talking about expansion in 10 or 20 years. The are a strong fit from the standpoint of academics, geography, additional (large) media market.
The problem is, well, the actual sports. Canadian college athletics generally are not competitive at an NCAA division I level, nor do they spend the money or have the facilities. It would be a huge commitment on Toronto's part to upgrade most (if not all) of their facilities and programs.
|6 years 27 weeks ago||The Big East could take||
The Big East could take Temple back, or possibly UCF or Memphis. Most of the other non BCS schools east of the Mississippi are either in small markets (East Carolina, most of the MAC), or have only limited appeal even in their own area (like Northern Illinois).
The MAC would probably only be hit by a second tier of poaching - say if Conference USA looking for a new member. My guess is that they'd either stand pat or add a football only member if their football membership dropped below 12.
|6 years 27 weeks ago||Huge win for the team &||
Huge win for the team & program - first road win against a ranked team since the 2000-01 season. All in all not bad for a team picked to finish 11th in the conference.
|6 years 27 weeks ago||Huge win tonight at Xavier||
I post so rarely that I can't (yet) start new threads, but wanted to note that Michigan upset #12 Xavier on the road 72-71 - easily the teams biggest road win in years.
|6 years 27 weeks ago||Notre Dame & Academics||
The potential issue with Notre Dame and the Association of American Universities is more a matter of emphasis rather than academic standards. The AAU is a group of research schools, while Notre Dame places an emphasis on undergraduate education.
When discussions were taking place several years ago, the faculty at Notre Dame balked because many felt their schools academic focus was being redirected all for the sake of college athletics.
The flip side of this is that the Big 10 is more than just a sports conference - there are academic ties between the schools through the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (http://www.cic.net/Home.aspx).
None of this is insurmountable, particularly if enough money is involved - it just makes it a bit more complicated.
|6 years 28 weeks ago||Injuries hurt too||
Krista Phillips wasn't 100% last year, at least at the start of the season and they missed Ashley Jones as well.
Things don't get any easier - they face number 8 ranked Xavier in Cincinnati on Monday night
|6 years 29 weeks ago||I would say its not his||
I would say its not his fault, but as head coach Dantonio has to take responsibility.
At the same time, MSU won't be held to the same standard as Michigan - partly because not nearly as many people outside the state pay attention, partly because of different expectations by the schools themselves, their alumni and their fans.
|7 years 21 weeks ago||A long shot, but if the NCAA||
A long shot, but if the NCAA ever allows Canadian schools to join I could see the University of Toronto being an interesting choice. They fit academically, geographically and would add a large media market.
Of course there's the whole problem of requiring a massive investment/upgrade of their sports programs.
|7 years 29 weeks ago||I don't doubt that the Big 10||
I don't doubt that the Big 10 isn't that popular in Pittsburgh, but what I was referring to was more about things like Television/Cable broadcasting rights.
I don't really know, but would adding Pitt expand the footprint of the Big Ten Network, or increase the dollar value of the current television packages? My guess is that it would, but less than Missouri (adding Kansas City and (sort of) St. Louis, Rutgers (NY/NJ), or Syracuse (upstate NY)). Pitt is a natural fit for the conference, but it would have been easier for them to have joined at the same time as Penn State....
