We haven't had an internet poll to win in quite a while, so here we go. Best College sports experience for USA Today. We currently have three division foes ahead of us plus Wisconsin...unacceptable!
"Reg E Cathey, who featured in the US version of House of Cards and in The Wire, has died aged 59...
He won an Emmy award in 2015 for his House of Cards role as Freddy Hayes, the owner of a restaurant favoured by Kevin Spacey’s character, Frank Underwood.
In The Wire he played Norman Wilson, a newspaperman who became a political operative.
Cathey told the Guardian in 2016 that his career took off after Barack Obama was elected president because people could begin to accept the idea of a well-spoken black man.
“He got inaugurated, and I started working like a fiend – hired by the same people who would previously ask: ‘Have you always spoken like that?’ It’s like, you know what, motherfuckers, yes, I have,” he said.
Cathey was born in Alabama and spent time in Germany as a child. He attended the University of Michigan and the Yale School of Drama."
EDIT: removed Cathey quote "The world is being destroyed by psychopaths", reference to 2016 Guardian interview with Cathey.

What's up for this weekend? Not much going on at the Kimble residence, hopefully I am able to catch M hoops tomorrow at 2:30pm. In the mean time, it's Friday which means I no longer have a work ethic. Minimum effort from now until 4.
Look. I fell into a pair for tomorrow night. I've attended games since the mid 80s, but I've never paid attention to the scalpers. I need 1 or maybe 2 more to make the very generous gift work. Si.... Should I get em outside Yost?? On line?? Sorry for the non recruiting and non Sparty thread... Go Blue!!
Back after some travel it's your (non) favorite automotive discussion on a college sports website.
So, NAIAS just finished up at Cobo Hall and I'm looking forward to heading to the (world's largest!) Chicago Auto Show in a couple of weeks here. I'm excited in that my wife's lease is up later this year so we'll actually get to go as car shoppers. I find the auto show great for that because
- You can look at all the cars in one place. No going to 5 different dealers to look at 5 models
- Along those lines, you can see how the seats fit, how big the trunks are, etc. so that when you do go to a dealer you can worry about driving the car
No sales people - no pressure to buy!
Anyone head to Cobo? Any new debuts have you all kinds of excited? I'm traveling for work next week, so this thread will be spotty at least until the "real" offseason
"Those who graduate from UMich are among some of America's greatest including: former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, Google Cofounder Larry Page, former U.S. President Gerald Ford, singer Madonna, and NFL player Tom Brady."
Staying in Ann Arbor for the first time that didn't revolve around a sporting event. Looking for dinner recommendations for less than $30 per person(ish). Any type of food is open.
This is my first ever topic, but who better to help than fellow mgobloggers! Take it easy on me if I did this wrong :(
