  • SPORTS MOMENT: Attending the OSU-UM game in 2006 after my oldest brother got offered extra tickets to the game from OSU "because we oversold Minnesota, want 2 more tickets to Michigan instead?". I flew back. I have 4 brothers, I had to sit with the traitor but we had a ball at Hineygate and the game. Best tailgating I ever saw; total party.

OSU is officially sanctioning it.  There is an annual polar bear plunge (over 1000+ when I did it 2 yrs ago) on the city beach on Jan 1 yearly at noon.  Sometimes you have to break thru the ice (nobody goes out very far).  There isn't a cop or city official anywhere in sight.  Obviously someone could drown, or more likely, have a heart attack or suffer from hypothermia.  A fire truck is parked about a block away but that's all the presence you'll see from the city.    A local paddleboard club acts like unofficial "lifeguards" out in the water. Its the most organized unorganized thing I've ever attended.

OSU should consider this approach.  Put up a sign warning that you should not be swimming and then just go away with maybe some medical folks nearby on alert.   People that age can get in & out of Mirror Lake on their own. Crossing High Street at night might be more/as dangerous.

Both of you are right. I hate piped in, overly loud music at sporting events and the only band we're all going to agree on that we love is TBDBITL.   I don't get it, I think it's a no brainer to just use our band. 

We're not a university that thinks it needs to fix it's "brand" to get students to show or donors to give.

There is a difference in this years TTUN squad and the Bucks of the Cooper years.  In the Cooper years, almost every year we thought or EXPECTED to win or be very competitive.  AA has pretty much given up on their team.  We never did back then.

They could hardly do worse than their last pick, who_ever they get.   Hoke _ay be a nice guy but so is _y neighbor and he can't coach either. 

I just hope they get a real  _ichigan _an since it worked out so well the last ti_e.

I hope the Bucks hang 60 on the_ Saturday.

NM, you aren't the only one. LOL!   I never heard of that so I looked it up because that's a wacky name! Ol' Martha Stewart has a nice recipe (of course).

It's good to see they are finally addressing the problem there....

Comment 20 Nov 2014

I don't think Hoke and Bruce should ever have their names in the same sentence.  There is no comparison.  TTUN is a dumpster fire and the '87 Bucks were a much better team.

Actually when my dad died, he was so eaten up by cancer we were surprised they wanted his organs.  They said some are used for medical training and research.   Makes sense.  They're certainly no good to you anymore.  So, your liver might be the poster child in a medical school!

Comment 19 Nov 2014

On espn.go.com, the question of the day is whether Brax should stay with the Bucks or go to the NFL.  The entire midwest is voting for him to stay at OSU except....you guessed it!   Of course they want him to go to the NFL.  LOL!    <insert obligatory dumpster file gif here>
