During an afternoon in the summer of 1994, over a few platters of nachos at a restaurant in Ann Arbor that is long gone, Doug and Professor Coppola drafted the first set of SSG assignments. Remarkably, these assignments have stood the test of time and most remain exactly as they were created on that day.
