Or Michael Jordan in Space Jam.

That’s what I said earlier, but in a more diplomatic way, and one certain person here got pissed for some reason.

I have the same opinion, just switched. I will now consider you, goblueram, my internet best friend.

I also enjoy Greta Van Fleet. I think you just have to take them at face value. They aren't pushing the envelope or doing anything super imaginative, but neither is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (and those are just fine). My hope for them is that they grow and evolve and do their own thing. Kinda like how the first RUSH album is just a Led Zeppelin knock off.

I love listening to Darryl Hall and John Oates and I'm not ashamed of it.

Probably the only time you'll hear RUSH in a strip club.

Just let it go. It's really not a big deal.

I just assumed he was being sarcastic.

12/13/2018 - 11:08am I've always thought that…

I've always thought that they should just change the name to some (better) variation of 'popular music hall of fame' or whatever, because that's what it is. I have a sore spot against them because they artists they induct (instead of worthy rock bands) doesn't fit the name of the institution. Yes, I realize my personal feelings on it don't really matter at all.

And on Guitar Hero 2 for the bonus song "Trogdor" it lists the artist as 'Strongbad'. So if you want to get pedantic, hey man I'm ready to rumble. Because apparently I care enough to look up the guitar hero 2 bonus song list on wikipedia.

12/03/2018 - 1:41pm I don't think that analogy…

I don't think that analogy is very good. Homestar Runner is a different character on the show who didn't sing the song.

12/03/2018 - 12:17pm Now I haven't checked itunes…

Now I haven't checked itunes or anything, but it sure seems like the artist listed for "Trogdor Song" should be Strongbad, not Homestar Runner.

My mom and dad, at 19 years old, were in the stands in the endzone that AC scored in. My dad still brings it up every time we play Indiana.

It's nice that we live in a society where we can talk about performance issues without fear of ridicule.

Current rock band with state of Michigan connection? Three words: Greta Van Fleet. However, I would imagine they are on tour right now. Also, no idea if they are football fans.

I'll see your 6'3"/180 and raise you 6'4"/170. Yes I am a bean pole.

09/27/2018 - 10:22am I think it's probably…

I think it's probably different for a guy that the offense purposefully makes an effort to get him the ball in space so he can make a move and get yards after the catch. Because of my (relative lack of) athleticism I was more of a 'run a 10 yard curl route while defenders close in for kill shots and have about 40 YAC total all season'.

09/27/2018 - 9:51am I played WR on a division 3…

I played WR on a division 3 team. I'm not very quick but am tall and have good hands, so I would catch an 8 yard pass on 3rd and 7 and immediately get blasted by a linebacker or a safety. I wouldn't have made it through the season without the regular amount of pads along with a flak jacket on underneath for extra protection.

I think it's just naturally the way he talks sometimes. I don't have any technical complaints. Apparently my body is 29 years old but my ears are 59 years old.

I always have a hard time hearing Brian (starts out a sentence fine and then gets quiet by the end).

Me in the stands last Saturday: "You gotta banjo those slant/arrow combos!" to nobody in particular.

Had him in my Orgo II lecture this past summer. He did pretty well, and it made me happy.

This one hits close to home. My wife grew up in Houghton. She is still in shock about all of the devastation up there.

I used to like watching the original incarnation of SportsNation with him and Michelle Beadle.

Hell yeah man. Saw them on R40 at the Palace. I thought Geddy's vocals were fine, but that's the only time I've ever seen them live (being 28 I'm just glad I got the chance).

I can relate to the lecturer's salary story. Look for me if you are taking chem 215 this spring semester!

It’s totally true. I read an article about how some bdubs restaurants even have recliner chairs for the men who just had the surgery to recover in while watching bball and eating wings.

My advisor would get very emotional when discussing the futility of the Lions organization.

I vividly remember the conversation I had the day after the draft with my PhD advisor at U of M. It went something like, "So we picked an athletic tight end with questionable hands who doesn't really block all that well? I thought we already had one of those!! (Pettigrew)".

03/04/2018 - 3:18pm Love everything I’ve heard

Love everything I’ve heard about Austin. Not gonna read the article because I don’t feel like crying. Funny how having a kid makes it way more likely for you to cry at stuff (at least that’s my experience over the past year).

I suppose some people may enjoy the adrenaline rush from showing up 10 minutes late to an exam, just like some people love horror movies.

02/20/2018 - 9:57am I’m not surprised by that. Us

I’m not surprised by that. Us grad students that first went somewhere with classes that actually started when they were supposed to, and still had 50 minute long classes so you had that built in 10 minutes to walk to your next class, can’t help but think ‘why would you take something everybody else already does and make it unnecessarily confusing?’

02/20/2018 - 9:32am It was super dumb for all the

It was super dumb for all the reasons listed in the article. As a grad student I would see a flier for a seminar or an event and wonder ‘now does that start on normal, sane person time or does it start on Michigan time?’ Sometimes it would be one and sometimes it would be the other. Also, numerous times as a GSI I would have students ask me if something started I ‘michigan Time’ or not, like a 6:30 exam in the evening or something, and I would have to respond with ‘I have no idea’, because sometimes it would depend on the professor. Literally the only thing it accomplished was confusing people.

02/19/2018 - 9:58pm This argument has never, ever

This argument has never, ever made sense. The class will end ten minutes before the hour now, giving the same ten minutes to walk the next class that exists every where else that doesn't use "Michigan time". I didn't do my undergrad here, and when I came here for grad school everybody was like "Oh, things don't actually start when they say they do, they start on 'Michigan time'". And I thought, "That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard".

I thought Johnny tsunami settled that debate a long time ago.

02/16/2018 - 2:46pm Schrodinger’s RPO. Exactly!

Schrodinger’s RPO. Exactly! Before the snap there exists an equal possibility of a run or a pass, therefore each play is both a run AND a pass! And every play a new universe is created where the opposite play was run. The the football RPO multiverse theory. Now that’s some ‘smart football’!

02/08/2018 - 9:37pm Snow Day

I was a grad student working on my chemistry PhD during the year the snow day happened. I took the bus in to town and walked to the chemistry building pretending I was a Nord in Skyrim. Got to lab to get some work done and found out that classes had been cancelled. Didn't matter to us graduate students, we had work to do. I think that somewhere around 5 out of the 7 members of the lab were there working that day.
