"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

Alvarez used his Pittsburgh roots and connections to get Chryst that job. For this reason, Chryst was not considered for Wisconsin job when it oppened. I imagine Chryst would have some more wiggle room at this time, but he seems like a guy who is going to stick around at Pitt for a while.

I'm from Pennsylvania. Know several people on both schools' boards. And I may have a grasp of what does and what traditionally does and does not happen with WPA small college football.
For instance, Grove City College have knock off-color altered UofM uniforms. They also used to hold the all-time NCAA rushing record and proud football heritage (dead now). It's ironic that this school has any similarities to UofM given that it won a Supreme Court Case to deny affirmative action impositions for all private schools while UofM lost their Supreme Court Case dealing with Affirmative Action. There are many people at GCC who view graduates from Slippery Rock as a "slimmy pebble"(little brother) in terms of academic and formerly (back in 50-70s) athletic little brother.
But like you said, I don't know anything and was just trying to bash DB. How is junior detective school treating you?

but I felt that our AD had more of a say in this choice and well it's sad that they invite a small school to come and tell them what to do. ~Whatever

From my experience are the most polite, nice, and well-manered in all the country. May have something to do with no-alcohol, but i think they'd be nice anyways

Hard to tell because of it being a night game. The sections were more empty, but I think it had to do more with people arriving on time more than anything.

I've turned my back to every kick someone has ever made after an incident a few yrs ago, so I don't just do it when we're losing.

OT and unrelated but have you been watching the Pitt games at all this year? Even though they've lost the past few games, I feel like Pitt has a great young team and the ability to make big waves in the ACC the next few yrs. I remember you said you had a connection there as well
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||Another great thing about this whole scenario||
Penn State morons were slow and still defiant to denounce Patterno, their athletic dept, and their school in general.
This act sends a clear message that we care more about the well being of players, students, the community, and our school more than winning, fly-overs, and front-row mega fan sections.
Glad- That I WAS NOT and never will be associated with Penn State

Seems like the most bad guy of all time. Has some good in him, but we need Schlissel (Mary Sue) to go after his only son for him to come back to the good side

I think his sole focus would transition away from Mgoblog, centralize to being a regent, and make the campus the best place it can possibly be in every aspect. Most people, myself included, would have their day jobs (law practice, dermatology practice, etc), whic would be their primary concern. Doesn't mean he would succeed, but he would give it his all.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||not sure if I share Brian's sentiments||
But the PSU game would happen whether or not Brandon is in charge. Maryland was allowed into the conference under Brandon's vote and added for the wrong reasons in my opinion. Though in hindsight I believe Maryland (and Hopkins) will make the Big Ten a future power in lacrosse, I cannot find that the ends justify the means.

Thanks for your post. I really wish I had been more open when we met at potbelly's my senior year. Sorry to hear that your dog died. I'm still around AA if you read this post. Hopefully we will run into each other again before I graduate in 2017.
This outlook is the best I've seen all year. Thank you for your contribution again.

Probably thanks to Slippery Rock and Mercyheurst. This genorisity would never come from our athletic dept unless with purchase of coca-cola beverage

I've been thinking the Big Ten (or Big x) is turning into the Ivy league, but I haven't had any facts or analysis.

Also note that Mgoblog famous fans like Lloyd Brady were never on Brandon's camera first just good ol'TV cameras. Real fans don't look for the camera; the camera finds them

Not sure, as Brian mentionned.
Sort of ironic and maybe odd to choose your national animal as a snake. The U.S. flag that we know today is very similar to the British East India trading company flag. I wish we had stuck with the snake.

Chuck Noll brought it to Pittsburgh, and I see it everywhere from the Penguins, to Pitt, and every year with the Steelers.

Sent him an email the other day thanking him for his work. Only person in MSA who did anything of notice during my continuing yrs at the university. I'm sure other have made contributions, but let's be honest. At Michigan football is pretty much the most important thing.

I am experiencing the feeling after I attended the funeral of a beloved old person who accomplished much but wished to pass onto the next stage of life.
Fortunately, none of that applies to Mitch who will make a lot of money, get laid, and probably finish his degree in the future.
Bonus Question: What drug should be used to reverse the effects of a benzodiazepine?
