It's a 1949 Buick Roadmaster. Straight 8. Fireball 8. Only 8985 production models. Dad lets me drive slow on the driveway. But not on Monday. Definitely not on Monday.

As every SEC-compliant stock/mutual fund/ETF must say, "past performance is no guarantee of future results." That's especially true when past performance is measured via a random date...

Technically, in 1916 Michigan State was known as Michigan Agricultural College. Mooo U. NTTAWWT.

Research species for theses or dissertations may focus on beef or dairy cattle, sheep, swine, horses, poultry, or fur-bearing and laboratory species.

I wanted to get a Ph.D. at MSU, but I couldn't decide between beef or fur-bearing species.

BTW, I can make these jokes because I grew up in East Lansing. It's like the fat comic who is allowed to make fat jokes.

after your stellar work looking up Michigan’s record when passing for less than 100 yards and this thread I have another assignment for you. Look up Michigan’s record by phase of the moon and tell us what that means for Saturday

I wonder what Michigan's record is in games where they are a 2-score underdog? Given the line fluctuates and there probably aren't many games exactly at the current spread, I wonder how they perform in games that are say 7.5-13.5... too lazy to look myself.

I honestly think we beat PSU this weekend. They're a paper tiger with a big head right now... They're primed for an upset. PSU is most definitely not the best team in the B1G

I watch all of our upcoming opponents... Barkley is a freak athlete but that isn't exactly translating into dominance at the RB position. Trace is a mediocre QB with good to great escapability. If only we had a competent QB, we'd be a lock.

Imo, PSU is the third best team in the B1G right now. Sadly, OSU has looked better in all phases except ST.
