...a newsfeed item that Cardale Jones was inducted into Mensa.

05/04/2018 - 12:19pm Anyone have insight into no seat additions?

I'm wondering if anyone has insights into why the Athletic Department is prohibiting seat additions (with the exception of stranded singles)?

There are two seats in front of mine I've been trying to get for three years now. I see that they are availble in the upgrade system. However, per the FAQ and disclaimer when accessing the upgrade site, additions are not permitted this year due to "limited availability."

I know new season ticket holders are being told they'll likely get to purchase seats once the public period opens.

Seems odd that the AD would shut out existing (10+ year) ticket holders to accommodate new ticket holders who may not renew next year, may reduce their PSD, etc.

01/30/2018 - 1:24pm If anyone thinks Engler is not going to be anything more...

...than a "caretaker" (read: let's order pizza and have a shredding party!) interim president, I'm launching a bridge reselling website soon.

 

Peter Secchia has his hands in every damn thing, and has Schuette, Forsyth, Engler, Snyder, DeVos, and the entire MSU BoT in his pockets. As he's already said that donors who are afraid of the climate at MSU should send their kids elsewhere, he obviously cares little for the insitution, but cares a lot about the reputations of every single enabler associated with MSU.

 

Secchia will make sure that Engler is the spin doctor and keeps his face in the TV cameras while he ensures that nobody, save a janitor or two, loses their job.

 

What a joke.

12/24/2017 - 6:22am This is amazing!

Over three days, in the midst of the holiday chaos and depleted pocketbooks, the Michigan Money Cannon is a few moderate donations from reaching $125K.

Color the SEC bagmen jealous.

12/06/2017 - 12:05pm December 13, 1997

Was a fantastic day for Michigan sports.

 

We screwed the SEC via Peyton at the Downtown Athletic Club and we screwed the ACC by coming back from a double-digit deficit to beat #1 Dook.

 

My oral history that day - lots of kegged beer going down the gullet.

11/30/2017 - 2:46pm Let it be noted that I've finally...

...had a Dave Brandon WOW Experience.

 

It was sort of like, "WOW. He actually thought he could get this through without anyone noticing" (all the Kraft Noodles in the room are saying, "hold my beer.") 

11/24/2017 - 2:43pm Point me to your finest shaman,

11/09/2017 - 9:36pm Did anyone harboring ill feelings about this...

...even read the article?

He went to OSU because he's following Holtmann from Butler. Beilein put in a good word with Holtmann and when Holtmann left for OSU, Dakich went with him.

I, for one, applaud the guy for honoring Beilein's willingness to stick his neck out, and for honoring his commitment to Holtmann. Even though it means playing for the mortal enemy.

Anyone who can't appreciate that or wish the guy well needs their head examined.

11/06/2017 - 2:17pm I don't do the reddit, but if I did...

Les, what's for dinner tonight - Kentucky Bluegrass, Fescue, or Bermuda?

11/06/2017 - 12:58pm So, if he jammed his thumb playing XBox,

Nicked himself while shaving, or suffered any number of "minor" injuries unrelated to his physical ability to kick a ball through the uprights, he shouldn't play?

10/18/2017 - 12:53pm I was in nearly the same boat as you...

...except I was a freshman in 1997.

The credit hours for tickets was awesome - I went in with a bunch of people I knew from back home, one of whom was a fifth-year senior. I think he had like 130 hours, so we ended up getting seats in row 9.

Storming the field after OSU was probably the highlight of my life (don't tell my wife and kids that!). I kept my piece of sod for as long as it would last until it crumbled into oblivion. I'd upvote you to infinity for keeping stolen sod in a stolen Mitch's mug - both relics from a bygone era.

10/05/2017 - 4:28pm How do you keep a Spartan fan laughing all weekend?

Tell him a joke on Monday morning.

10/05/2017 - 4:17pm That's my running 20-year joke

I NEVER APPLIED TO STAEE, but one day during my senior year of high school, I received an acceptance portfolio from them, replete with signed acceptance letter, glossy brochures, and get this, an enrollment application. The letter referenced the application form, essentially stating that they reserved a spot for me and receipt of the application would confirm my spot.

My response then, as today, is "what a joke."

10/05/2017 - 2:05pm Hmm...I must have received a draft version of the e-mail

My just says:

 

To the fans, families, and friends of the land-grant university in our great state,

Win, lose, or draw, please don't burn down our city.

Signed,

Warde Manuel

09/30/2017 - 4:10pm Harbaugh is so competitive

I bet he tries to one-up Dick Kimball (see vid in thread) by riding inside a submarine off the 10m platform.

08/30/2017 - 11:56am The only thing that would have topped this is...

...releasing it in CSV format.

08/28/2017 - 12:37pm If you think about the subtext, he's actually right when...

...he says this: "However, the Wolverines are in the same position the Spartans were a year ago."

 

He's right because we are in the same position as Staee was a year ago - we've scored as many points in the College Football Playoff as they have.

06/14/2017 - 5:25pm If you're ever in Cleveland on a Thursday...

...go to Hoopples.

 

I thought I knew good guitarists until I saw Glenn Schwartz (formerly of the James Gang). Rumor has it that Jimi Hendrix asked Glenn to play at *his* birthday party, FWIW.

 

He used to have a regular Thursday gig at Hoopples, but now it's occassional. 

 

But just don't talk while he's playing. He'll stop playing, start preaching for an unknown length of time, and maybe start playing again.

 

That's all I'll say except for if you see him, no matter your religious (or not) stripe, you'll feel baptized by the axe.

04/28/2017 - 12:19pm Every round that goes by...

...Connor Cook gets a little bit more excited. He's just itching to use #draftedbeforemalikmcdowell in his Twitter feed.

03/28/2017 - 11:38am Let me fix that for you. :-)

03/28/2017 - 11:17am On the lunch menu at MSU Practice Facilities today...

...word salad.

They should have just put the general counsel up there instead of Mork; he probably spent the last six months rehearsing answers with them.

 

03/24/2017 - 12:31pm I'd rather be subjected to

Watching his "pie tops" commercials on repeat for the rest of my life, a la Clockwork Orange, than listen to one more second of his color commentary.

03/23/2017 - 1:38pm Surely you can't be serious.

03/19/2017 - 8:17pm Can't wait for football

Can't wait for football season!

03/19/2017 - 2:42pm Fire Whom?

NOOOOOOOO-BODY

03/19/2017 - 2:40pm This team tho...

Seems like STREET FIGHT was what they needed to finish the regular season strong.

 

Seems like plane wreck was what they needed to start the grueling tourney stretch.

 

Seems like they've JUST started to hit their stride.

 

Seems like every other team in the tourney has just been put on notice.

 

It. Is. Great. To. Be!

03/18/2017 - 12:51pm SPARTY NO!

SPARTY NO!

(I hope they lose by 23-32 points.)

03/12/2017 - 5:25pm This team is a miracle last-second hoist...

...and an OTL to a good Minny team, from being 12-0 in it's last 12.

 

To quote Mr. T, "I pity the foo, who has to play the maize-and-blue!"

03/10/2017 - 2:17pm STREET FIGHT!!!!

STREET FIGHT!!!!

03/09/2017 - 3:46pm Not sure if the team gets to decide

At the beginning of today's game, the announcers mentioned something about the B1G waiving its uniform requirements for this game, for obvious reasons.

 

That to me indicates that they'll only be able to use them until such time as the "B1G compliant" unis are available. However, I'd imagine that any investigation into the plane wreck won't be complete before they can unpack the plane and get them to D.C.

 

Practice unis, "white-collar" quotes, STREET FIGHT. Whatever it takes to WIN THE GAME!

But still tied with Painter at 44%.

Looks like voting has opened, but even after I voted, Thad Matta had 100% of the votes cast.

 

Pay no attention to the Hotel Putingrad behind the curtain.

02/24/2017 - 9:22am They should suspend him

And the suspension should start on Columbus Day.

02/21/2017 - 1:11pm Bolivars? Whew.

I've been worried my MGoPoints would be subject to hyperinflation, a la Zimbabwean dollars.

02/20/2017 - 4:39pm Directions from Ann Arbor to East Lansing after said night game

1. Look in the sky.

2. Follow the flames.

3. When you smell burning furniture, you've reached your destination.

02/17/2017 - 12:04pm Can't wait until Hugh Freeze decides to chime in...

...and Harbaugh tweets back:

 

"Didn't know they had wifi at Western Union, Harry."
