Cinco de Cuatro is a plot line from Arrested Development.  Here's the pertinent clip for all to enjoy.  Love the Seussian nod...

05/04/2018 - 1:45pm So glad they decided ot recut

So glad they decided ot recut Season 4.  Didn't care for the individualized character episode format at all.  I still think there is excessive narration in S4, so hopefully the upcoming Season 5 gets back to its roots.

 

Either way, AD is a great show and I'm glad the characters live on...

04/20/2018 - 2:20pm This.

Only one of the four units actually has any windows facing the stadium.  I'll save the $1.2MM that I don't have for a better fantasy.

Excellent work getting this posted early in the morning for people to have on their commutes. Was really hoping it was going to be there and, poof, it was.

03/26/2018 - 9:07am Agreed. I myself have enjoyed

Agreed. I myself have enjoyed their finishes this March, but the media slurpage of The Fightin’ Sister Jeans had already gotten to ridiculous levels before the previous round. Their Final 4 coverage is going to be out of control, and the result will be an entire country (save for our own base) rooting against M.

Also, not to discount their run as a double digit seed, but the Cinderella hype is being a bit sensationalized - they actually have some pretty deep roots. Not only is this now the fourth time an 11 seed has made the Final 4, but Loyola has actually been there before...and won the entire tournament back in the ‘60s. So, yes, Loyola-Chicago has exactly as many national titles as M. Oh, and they apparently have the all-time best winning percentage of any school in NCAA tournament history (with more than 5 games played), having just passed Duke this weekend.

03/19/2018 - 8:42am Moe needs to stay out of foul

Moe needs to stay out of foul trouble in order to do this though. Seems that opponents have been deliberately taking it at him early to get him off the floor, and it’s been working. When we can play five out we get performances like the BTT. When we can’t we get thrown out of rhythm on offense like the last couple games.

Love discovering the occasional easter egg in the Injuries section.

Not sure how my personal taste is a misconception, but okay.  

 

According to MattisonMan, apparently Islay scotches do NOT smell like band aids...to me.

 

I also said nothing about smoke being tied to smoothness. 

 

Your post is, however, indicative of why so many scotch drinkers come off as douchey.

Not sure if Beilein's interview with Eisen last week made it to the board or not, but here is it:

Pretty good stuff as he addresses several topics including his strategy for recruiting one-and-done type players, which has been the source of much hand-wringing here over the years.

03/08/2018 - 5:19pm Hi Dense,

"The committee had a really meaningless and ambiguously worded tweet"...so you probably didn't need to start a thread on another school's board about it.

 

Besides, Sparty fans complaining about anything the the selection committee does is ridonkulous.  Few teams have benefited from an easier path the the F4 over the last two decades.  It's not the committee's fault that Izzo can't beat the likes of Middle Tennessee.

03/03/2018 - 1:24am Poor form...

You don’t want the mgomob hunting down your son if it turns out he jinxed the team. Not sure if a 9 year old could survive in Bolivia.

02/26/2018 - 12:06am Advice from a fellow whiskey & bourbon drinker...

Yes. Be in the lookout for the word “Islay” on your labels. All Islay scotches have this distinct band-aid aroma and taste (I also liken it to blue Chloraseptic) - I don’t understand how anyone could enjoy it.

I find the non-Islay single malts the way to go as they are much smoother. Macallan 12 is my go-to when I’m doing the scotch thing.

01/30/2018 - 12:19am Proof?

You mean proof like the video of Payne admitting to the police that he and Appling raped a girl on campus? Izzo knew about it, the police knew about it, and nothing was done about it. Neither player was kicked off the team, suspended, or even forced to temporarily ride the pine. Izzo not only sent a clear message to the program that this is acceptable behavior, but put them in a position to lead the team by example as four year starters.

Izzo is by definition an enabler of rapists. QED.

01/29/2018 - 11:45am As a public, state funded

As a public, state funded university, doesn't this mean that said staggering financial costs are (to a certain extent) going to fall on us, the taxpayers?

 

Thanks again, MSU.

01/29/2018 - 12:45am Nice try, Sparty.

I heard there is a manager position posted at the local Burger King.

They will not be considering any of the Harvard alumni that apply.

...not that I’d want him anywhere near the program, but I heard he might be available.

EXACTLY. This is the direction this investigation needs to go.

If this thread gets pulled, ESPN/investigators will find that the people who were supposed to be holding MSU and their athletes accountable to the law are also to blame for the sexual violence. Their long history of helping the AD and coaches sweep these incidents under the rug by discouraging charges, not pursuing prosecution, etc, has been one of the biggest factors in enabling this culture of protecting the university’s image above all else.

Just got an email saying the Big House 5K is on April 8th.  Often that event has fallen on the same weekend as the Spring Game, although I don't believe this was the case last year which sucks for out-of-towners.  This means there is also a chance the Spring Game could be on April 7th instead, but the link in the OP is probably a better indicator.

Considering their history together, if Harbaugh is letting him go, you would think coach already has a pretty stellar replacement lined up.

12/13/2017 - 9:26am Shea seems to agree with you...

Love the confidence, but would be interested to know what he's "hearing".  From the article:

 

“From what I’m hearing, I’m pretty sure that I will win that and be able to play next year. If I don’t, I’ll work as hard as I can learning the offense and I’ll be playing the year after.”

I actually thought the recent unis with yellow helmets and yellow jerseys looked very clean and classic - much more befitting to the B1G.  They should stick with those.

 

Unis aside, a closer look at the depth chart reveals that Michigan itself will be starting their...gasp... third string QB.

Not a fan of the pumpkin spice movement myself, but am definitely a fan of pillowy cookies.  Any recommendations to make this cookie with the same texture but substituting something else for the pumkin?
