04/13/2018 - 1:56pm Good one:

"Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman, a man so allergic to turnovers that he explodes if he enters a bakery."

04/10/2018 - 8:45pm But he did tell us

what was a-happenin'

03/26/2018 - 6:03am The difference is palpable

But not particularly measurable.

It is truly heartwarming to see our basketball and hockey teams out-work and out-hustle the opps. This is partially a function of conditioning.

Damn, our "boys of winter" sure work hard!

In hockey, it is whole-body excruciatingly painful to keep working at the end of a shift, yet Pearson's guys just push through it. And I guaran-fuckin-tee it: you'll NEVER see any of Beilein's boys "dog it."

***Snark alert!!*** - unlike those Seminole quitters. 


Dang, I can almost feel the "negs" already: if only St. Jim could get his boys to play this hard...

03/25/2018 - 6:47am Palm Sunday muses

My church here in E TN is chock full of Sparty fans. I wonder if I'll mention that the Ramblers (cool building Loyola has there in Southfield) have more NCAA wins in the last 2 WEEKS than Fizzo has in the last 3 YEARS. So far this year I've just contented myself with telling some of the Sparty fans that they simply need better guard play to win in the bigtime.

HELP!! What do I say to all the damn Ohioans?

But my very best friends there are Chicagoans. What do I tell them? That Loyola should be in the Big Ten?

It looks like we have an object lesson here on the value of playing HARD. There must be a sermon in there somewhere.


Who has it better than us?!?!?

Maybe we can be ahead 24-12 at the first media TO next Saturday?

03/04/2018 - 8:25pm I like the


"Beilien Certainty Principle."


03/03/2018 - 6:12pm Always cool

to beat Sparty.

Fun to watch Izzo implode.

03/03/2018 - 3:47am Great comment

by our coach when asked about Mo in the postgame interview:

"He makes some of the stupidest fouls ever...puts them in the bonus early. I need to figure out some way in German to communicate with him. But don't get me wrong - I love the guy." 

All said while grinning.


***Probably not a correct direct quote***


02/24/2018 - 2:51pm ESPN did a split-screen

in the 1st half

with Lunardi blathering on & on & on about...

specifically, who the hell knows?

I had a Dakich-induced mute going on.


Fun game to watch even w/o sound!!

02/18/2018 - 4:32pm Only those %^#*[email protected] Big Ten refs

kept the fuckeyes in the game.

Should have been a 25+ pt blowout.

But wasn't it fun to see Moe all fired up like that?


01/16/2018 - 7:49pm Unfortunately, the concept of

"we're all adults here"

doesn't truly work in online environments.

01/16/2018 - 5:18pm "and now...

...we're headed into more."


Beilien sure keeps this customer satisfied!

01/16/2018 - 5:11pm Dang!

I guess I have been inaffectual for years.


Nonetheless, I am certain that having Grant back on our OL will truly be a game-affecter.


01/16/2018 - 12:17pm Ahem -

It was CLEARLY a moving screen that got that MD guy the open top-of-the-key three at the (almost) end of the game.


Also - how is it even possible that after a couple thousand replays of the Hill/Laetner (sp??) miracle that a decent Big Ten coach would NOT know to cover the in-bounder?

01/07/2018 - 5:16am I am, AHEM, over 60

(Class of '78)

My Dad assembled my bro (class of '74)

and me a dresser when I wasn't even a teenager yet -

and I'm using it to this very day!!

What's a cam screw?

(Sounds a bit kinky...)

01/06/2018 - 3:40pm Texas looking like a crap team

but Baylor's uni's look even worse

12/11/2017 - 12:31pm Perhaps we're all time traveling

as if we're in a Vonnegut novel -

I'm hoping RichRod can get the team up for MSU.

11/23/2017 - 7:43am Why not

the TwilightZone?


11/23/2017 - 7:27am Is there

a missing "/s" there, my friend?

11/17/2017 - 1:55pm One of the best films ever

The first time I ever saw it was in E Quad with the RA for 4th Floor Hinsdale.


11/17/2017 - 1:49pm Nik was the best

What happened to him in the NBA?

11/05/2017 - 3:00am Also learned that Bo

had a great RB named Rob Little.


Thanks, FUX

10/28/2017 - 7:58pm While "chemping" is definitely

not a word - what about "chimping"  or "chumping?"


I believe chumping refers to the style of certain former NFD coaches.

Chimping might be about a movie series.


Chemping is actually close to being about a Marx Brother.

09/29/2017 - 10:53pm Always best

not to play on Yom Kippur anyway.

09/09/2017 - 11:37pm "Michigan Monday"

will be a fun read this week.

08/21/2017 - 6:52pm It just plain doesn't feel right

to see Navarre ranked higher than Brady

07/09/2017 - 7:38am I never repress things

but, oddly enough - some seasons are shorter than others.

06/16/2017 - 9:50pm Only baseball is left to watch now

And try as I might - I just cannot stay awake for even a few innings.

I'll always love the game and the Tigers are still right up there with my other all-time favorites (guess what other teams are up there?)

Just please don't make me watch MLB before September!

03/09/2017 - 10:50pm Can we get off the 8/9 seed line?

My completely unsubstantiated opinion is that a BTT Finals appearance would be necessary. Just beating the Spoilerschnooks wouldn't quite be enough.

02/21/2017 - 5:49am Pardon me

but didn't Sparty go 3-9 last year? Wouldn't they fit your as long as it falls between weeks 3 and 9 parameter?


Oh, now I see what you did there!


02/17/2017 - 6:37am "Tom & Jerry"

got nothin' on "Tom & Pete"

02/17/2017 - 6:25am Hmmm

I wonder what Pete thought?

02/17/2017 - 6:21am Much more critical:

Who plays his wife?

01/24/2017 - 7:10pm To the best of my recollection

that is correct. Sparty did indeed go 3-9, while NFD went 4-8.

01/23/2017 - 9:39pm Please excuse an old infidel like me

but what in tarnation is "BTB?"

Surely (but please don't call me Shirley) it's not "Business To Business."

01/04/2017 - 7:50pm "Captain Philips"

***Najee*** was the name of one of the pirates in that film.

I doubt if that means much of anything.

12/30/2016 - 11:25am 24-12 Meechigan

My all-time favorite score

12/29/2016 - 9:58pm This bowl season just keeps getting worse

There I was, peacefully minding my own business & happily anticipating the first "real'/Top 15 matchup this month.Then I had to cringe inwardly as I was finishing the dishes in the kitchen & heard the dulcet tones of Mack Brown!!


He's not going to do the Orange Bowl, is he? PLEASE - someday tell me it ain't so.

12/09/2016 - 2:14pm Hawkins

That QB in Hawkin's video looks pretty good, too. Anyway know anything about him? What's his name, for instance.

12/05/2016 - 1:18pm Oddysey

Has there been a study similar to Brymer's regarding the question of refs often getting intimidated by the home crowd & thus not throwing flags against the hometeam?


I'd certainly be interested in the results of THAT investigation.

12/02/2016 - 10:28am 15 yards for excessive use of commas!

But yes - it IS great to be a Meechigan Wolverine

And yes - Jimmy & what he brings to the table are indeed exciting

and yes - you get an upvote!


Meyer and his band of crooks better watch out in next year's Game, and I'm sure they're having nightmares already about '18 & '19 and beyond.

11/29/2016 - 10:14pm Even though we always found ways to lose the Rose Bowl

I'd truly enjoy seeing those Pasadena mountains at sunset again. Starting to get un-hungover & looking forward to watching yet another major bowl game - what could be better? Either U$C or Washington or even Colorado would be fine opps, although tradition-wise I ofc would rather play the Trojans.

Hopefully the refs will be required to only award TDs if the ball actually gets into the end zone.

11/28/2016 - 12:12pm We know all of the arguments.

Now -  who do we contact, and how do we do so?

11/25/2016 - 3:45pm Am watching carefully selected previous Games

I just saw the 1995 Game - too bad Timmy B wasn't that good

10/23/2016 - 12:58am Great day indeed

The only way it could have been better would be if Notre F***ing Dame had lost.

10/09/2016 - 7:03pm Woody

According to Wikipedia, after The Game in 1968 Woody DID say "because I couldn't go for 3."

Howevah, the 2 pt try DID fail.


09/27/2016 - 6:14pm 24-12 Meechigan

I don't always guess, but when I do I choose that score.

09/05/2016 - 1:18pm That "dang" Irish team

Notre Dame is known in my household (and even in my Mom & Dad's!!) as Notre F***ing Dame.


I remember Ufer going on & on about how sweet it will be to beat ND again - right in the middle of calling The Game.


I didn't notice Kelly having apoplexy/turning bright red in the face last night, though. Was I just not watching closely enough?

05/29/2016 - 7:39pm Wowie Zowie

That's what champions do - turn a good break into a winning rally.


But I can't help but wonder: is the lack of singing Muppets for our super-duper women a Title lX violation?

11/21/2015 - 3:55pm I'd make a brilliant post, but

I'd probably get penalized

11/03/2015 - 5:55pm This thread being randomly serpentine, I'll

go ahead and ask this here:


if we win out, do we get a "New Year's Six" bowl?
