If the review is of all time I got OSU, Bama, USC, Michigan, Notre Dame top 5. OSU/Bama/USC have sustained upper echelon status for almost the last 100 years. Mich/ND obviously get in on dominance up through the 90s. After the top 5 I go LSU, Texas, Florida. They have mostly sustained being very good. 

Then you can add in your more recent success programs like FSU, Miami, etc. They've been upper crust for the last few decades but prior to that never sustained success. 

Just my $0.02.

What else does Michigan have to hang their hat on? They have been irrelevant for a decade. Harbaugh has yet to coach a snap but is continuing to stir the pot best he can. Reaching for a supposed legacy to fire a shot across our bow...why not, what do they have to lose?  The folks up north think Harbaugh is the second coming...they also think that transitive property applies and since Hoke had 3 close games with us, then it's a given Harbaugh will handle us. 

Bet your ass Urban is keeping tabs on these maniac antics. Harbaugh better get his house in order because he is fucking with the wrong dude who happens to have an army's worth of weapons. Harbaugh is setting himself up for a very unwelcoming curb stomping this November.

Assuming this wasnt totally staged -

If, they're not buddies, I'm sure a protein/creatine/clenbuteral fueled rage ensued and a nice rumble.

If they're buddies, still a dick move but laughable.

Really - you prefer Africa?  I've been all over the world and you nailed the two spots I havent been that I would like to get to...

Some of my favorite places were Norway, Italy, Japan and Costa Rica.  I have found, a lot of your trip depends on your research/planning and/or if you know folks to kick it with there.  That really seems to help your overall experience.

I've been to Iceland as well, pretty interesting place...not much at all between "cities", just volcanic rocks.  Cool hot springs though.

Hey, Izzo (likely asked the question but..) how about you mind your own business.  Lloyd had solid teams but became very old and grumpy at the back half of his career.  Heaven forbid he had to play a game later than noon, look out.

Anyhow, if Matta is indeed Lllllllllllloyd, I'd take that 50% national title now.

Wow. We were doing the exact same thing, at the exact same time, only a couple blocks away.

Nice. I was going to say, those Wolverines are used to consoling eachother after biting it hard. 

And yes, the Material Girl is originally from the Detroit area. There were rumors her daughter was going to go to Michigan (mabey she does?).

What an awesome post!  I'm only posting here so I can come back and post my pictures. 

The school year of 02-03 I lived at the top floor of the apartments you took a picture of at 12th and High (NE corner - above the Blockbuster). It was totally remodeled and nice as hell inside. I have some amazing stories and pictures from there. 

One example is, we had a back porch on that apartment. We used to sit on the porch and call the pay phone across the street at UDF. When a student (or bum) answered, we'd throw a shitload of water balloons on them. We almost got killed the night ICP played at the Newport.

After the Michigan game in 2002 a tear gas cannister landed right there and wafted intoy apartment. It cleared out 100s of people very quickly. When we got outside, there were so many fires and rowdy ass crowds. It was insane. 

So many memories. The old Paninis. Underage at Spot Bar. As you can tell from the first few pics, you didn't want to go south of Chittenden.

I frequented the BWs at Woodruff and High. Lotsa wings and beers crushed in that one. 

My "secret" spot was the old Subway on High (just south of the McDonalds). There was a random arcade in the back. We used to get our minds right with some Bob Marley then sit in there and play arcade games after class but before going out.
