I showed up for the game and it was 0-0 in the 4th.  I'd like to think I'm personally responsible for the offensive explosion. 

 

Not to be confused with the offensive explosion I had after lunch in the restroom.

I think that also speaks to the relative strength of the UM football team during the same time period.  I bet the quality of in-state recruits was much higher vs the rest of the nation than it is now.  The population loss in this area has really changed the recruiting dynamic.

I don't think Dio made him do it.  More like 16 Natty Lights and some Taco Bell.  Dio worked on a higher plane.

04/20/2018 - 1:17pm Back before The Internet was

Back before The Internet was Everything you had to wait in line outside Ticketmaster outlets to get tickets to concerts.  When Pearl Jam announced they were playing Crisler Arena back in 94 (or 95) we ran down to camp outside the Union the night before on a cold February night.   My roommate got really drunk and climbed on top of the Cube whilst we spun it around as fast as we could.

He ended up getting sick and wandering over to the front of the Union to puke on the plaque commemorating Kennedy's Peace Corp speech.  

Anyways, we got the tickets and I sold mine to Juwan Howard's roommate for $100/each who then sold them to some sorority girls.

As in "in-stater" from a middle-class suburb of Detroit I was blown away by the Long Island kids and how much money they had.  The concept of having a brand new BMW, ordering out from restaurants, wearing fancy clothes, etc....as an undergrad really made me feel poor in comparison.  To me it seemed they came from a completely different world.

Gumby Pizza on Sunday night was tradition in Markley in the early 90s.  $2.50 for half an extra large pizza

I'll second Kitch-iti-kipi as well.  A neat way to spend an hour or so looking down into the incredibly clear freshwater and seeing massive trout swimming below.

I guess I was just surprised at the fact that every little town had a Subway, seemingly moreso than any other fast food option.  Which was fine with me, but I have not noticed that anywhere else in the US.

 

04/11/2018 - 9:52pm My family has been taking

My family has been taking summer vacations in the UP the last several years and we agree Marquette is great.   A great little college town but you can still do "UP-stuff" like hiking and swimming.   Houghton is similar but on a smaller scale.   

For those who are runners, The Marquette Marathon and Half Marathon are run Labor Day weekend.  They feature net downhill runs that make it feel like you are practically flying.....until you get to the last mile which is all uphill.  A great chance to PR or BQ though.

Porcupine Mountains are great and Lake in the Clouds.  

 

I do have one question for any Yoopers here:  Why does it seem like there are more Subways that McD's in the UP and Wisconsin?  I've never seen so many Subways.

He's Dantonio without the prickly attitude and penchant for recruiting douchebags. Other than that, yeah he wins with a system and three star talent.

I think the downvotes might be due to some people just having a beef against the OP.  I found the info interesting and relevant to my interests however.

12/05/2017 - 7:44am I used to watch the NBA a lot

I used to watch the NBA a lot from the early 80s to the mid-aughts.  Then I had kids and the Pistons stunk so I didn't watch for around 10 years.   Now I started watching again...when the hell did they start playing music DURING the game?  It is incredibly annoying, especially when listening on the radio.   The games sound like the inside of a Chuckee Cheese.

Yes I'm old.

12/04/2017 - 9:18pm This game sucked.  This team

This game sucked.  This team has no toughness to it and seemingly no leadership.  A MAC team should be able to put OSU way when spotted a 20 point lead.  Awful all the way around.

I was not happy with all the O'Korn shitposting on this board and on my own facebook feeds.  As you saw from his post game comments there is no need to pile on the guy.  I'm sure he knew he was struggling going into the game and he didn't purposely play poorly and he took it hard that he did.    

These are not professional players and do not deserve the social media scrutiny and blowback that they get.   Grown ass men and women need to realize that and STFU.    Social media sucks when we all act like teenagers.

I had to find a list of all Eric Johnson concerts and I guess he has enough hard core fans that they uploaded copies of the flyers.   Pretty cool.  I like the option to "Charge by phone" to buy tickets.   You never hear that anymore.

So old.....

That was a great show.  Eric Johnson had amazing guitar skills for a 12 year old girl.

I am not really a fan ot the Tragically Hip but I do associate them with my time at UM:   My freshman year in 1991 I saw them open for Eric Johnson at the Michigan Theater.  I had never heard of them but I thought they were pretty good.

So how can I tell who were the Spartans and who were the good guys in those fights?  Or was it just a free-for-all?  Kids those days....what they needed was some kind of device they could keep in their hands that held their attention and kept them glued to their seats.

We are past peak-IPA.  It is like we are in the late 80s when bands like Trixter and Winger were popular and they were absolute crap.   All the good metal albums came out earlier in the decade and everything after that was a cheap imitation.   Two-Hearted is like Cliff Burton-Metallica and will always be good.  Almost all other IPAs that have come out since taste like hairspray and spandex.

That is funny.  My 11 year old son plays baseball and can throw in the low-mid 50s very easily.   A year from now I'm sure he will throw it harder than I can.
