Jim Harbaugh talks to the media for his weekly press conference.
It’s Nick Hopwood, our MGoFinancial Planner from Peak Wealth Management. He's got a Podcast about it called Finding True Wealth. And he also recently put together an online tool you can use to plan your finances. And you probably heard me say that last week but thought "I'm focused on this rivalry game; my financial future can wait until the bye week." Well, it's the bye week.

Brian: Does anyone know how to make a twitter bot? Because a rutger twitter bot would really make this a thing.
David: Man, it must be the bye week.
Brian: We're making fetch happen david.
David: @brian I had to urban dictionary that.
Brian: HAS NO ONE SEEN MEAN GIRLS
David: I tried to watch it 3 years ago and fell asleep
BiSB: /giphy She doesn't even go here
Smoothitron: Confession: one of my first big gifs was the Mean Girls with the M QBs but I haven't actually seen it either.
Smoothitron: Like with most cultural touchstones I just read the WP article. The list of things I have not seen would shock and horrify you.
Brian: ANYWAY since it's the bye week we have some time to contemplate deep philosophical questions like WHY HASN'T ANYONE SEEN MEAN GIRLS and this from the mathlete:
TWO: What happens next, where does the rivalry go from here now that Michigan is competent and capable?
I will cede the floor to folks who have not already made their desires to burn MSU to the ground and salt the earth plain.
Smoothitron: It will continue entirely on Twitter, because as a lifelong Indiana resident I have only ever met 1 MSU fan in person. He was a middle school PE teacher and would loudly curse at us when he beat us at badminton.
Brian: Were you in middle school at the time?
Smoothitron: I was. 3rd place finisher in the badminton tourney. My claim to fame since I lost all the spelling bees.
David: I was wondering where all the bees went
Brian: I feel like you have gotten the authentic MSU fan experience through this one guy.
Smoothitron: He was also the D-Line coach at the high school so I have to figure.
He never coached me because I quit football after middle school to focus on the Academic team.
Seth: I unfortunately know many many many Spartans, and all were Michigan fans or neutral until they did not get into Michigan. As long as you do not trigger the Spartan vein they are all very nice people. Once you do, you get facial expressions from Lie to Me and find yourself in a very "oh crap we're talking politics" conversation.
Brian: This is somewhat orthogonal to the desired thrust of conversation.
Has Order Been Restored, folks?
