Neil Armstrong is notoriously a very private man....yet, he has made several speaking appearances at USC, and is proud of his association and degree from USC.
Dr. Jerry Buss received his two graduate degress from USC, yet considers himself a loyal and die-hard Trojan of 50 years, over Montana where he received his undergraduate degree. As well as his generousity to the academic programs, he is one of two boosters who breaks out his checkbook for the football program - he wrote the check to Tennesse to buy out Lane's contract. Go Lakers!!

Michigan is an awesome university, with a stellar list of alums. No argument there.

End of discussion.
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.

Invented by FSU.
Thread is not "what has your school stolen"
Gatorade is a brand of sports-themed food and beverage products, built around its signature product: a line of sports drinks. Gatorade is currently manufactured by PepsiCo and distributed in over 80 countries. The beverage was first developed in 1965 by researchers at the University of Florida, to replenish the combination of water, carbohydrates, and electrolytes that the school's student-athletes lost (in sweat) during rigorous athletic competitions. Its name was derived from the collective nickname of the university's athletic teams, "the Gators".
I didnt know the "university of florida" = florida state.
