Memory Lane: The WMU Mention on Saturday Night Live
Not sure how many of you remember this. SNL episode in 2005, where Maya Rudolph's character (drunk sorority girl) announced she was from Western Michigan University in a skit. 03-lol

About the 3:00 minute mark.

Woo! The Musical

Many of the SNL cast members around that time were UM alumni, so I'm sure that had something to do with that.

Will Farrell wore a Scarlet and Gray sweatshirt (Ohio State colors) but claimed to be from Ohio U. on a couple SNL skits.

Yeah, but no Brown and Gold in the skit.

I don't know about that - care to prove?

I question that too.

Cool. Looks like he actually went to USC.

In fact none of the 2005 cast members had any attachment to U-M.

Will Farrell did go to USC, started out as a Sports Information wannabe.

I can't because it turns out I was wrong. I could have sworn I heard that but research shows that I'm way off. That's what I get believing u of M people.

At the time, I thought maybe a writer was either a WMU grad name-dropping, or a CMU grad poking us (given the "character" being portrayed).

But most likely, they just wanted a random school from 'flyover' country and we just happened to be picked.
