OT: It's Saturday night and we have no life because we are posting here and talking about what we are drinking thread. .
Aaron Morse of Dark Horse Brewing Co. is a man of esteemed character. Dare we say... a Michigan (craft beer) Man? Nickleback wants to give him money and associate his beer with their intolerable muzak. Does he give in to the soul-crushing, corporate schlock machine? No!
Well it's new old news. This all happened back in 2010, but is getting good publcity now, even making it to the Huffington Post.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
Brady Hoke on Conference Realignment, Roy Roundtree, Kaleb Ringer, the Gentlemen's Agreement, and Beer
Brady Hoke spoke at the Agonis Club's 59th-annual awards banquet in his hometown of Kettering on Tuesday, He spoke on a number of topics including his time at Ball State, the supposed gentlemen's agreement between Big Ten coaches, conference realignment, Kaleb Ringer, and Roy Roundtree.
On his time at Ball St.:
“I had two goals at Ball State. One was to play football and the other was to drink every beer in Muncie, Ind.”
On the Gentlemen's agreement:
“No. 1, we have an actual signing day for a reason. That is, they can change their minds until they sign. This is competitive. This isn’t ... I’d like to say golf — don’t take offense. I’ve never heard of agreements or not agreements. Look, they’re 18 to 23 years old. They got a lot going on, more so now than when I was 18 to 23.”
On conference realignment:
“I think really in about three years you’ll see four super conferences, and I think the Big East will go away and maybe the ACC. But look, I’m just a coach. I don’t know all of it.”
On Kaleb Ringer:
“He had a great spring. He had over a 3.0 (GPA). He did a great job from the academic side of it. He did a nice job of learning the defense. He was awesome. I think he can be in the mix (for playing time).”
On Roy Roundtree:
“He’s doing great. He’s going to wear No. 21 in honor of (Heisman Trophy winner) Desmond Howard. It’s a big deal. Desmond is fired up. Roy is fired up. And I’m fired up.”
I found his comments on conference realignment to be particularly interesting, mainly because you'd think that he'd have some inside information on the topic, via discussion with Dave Brandon and what not. It'll be interesting to see what happens down the road.
Personally at a Beer Pong Tournament for Relay for Life.
It is a bit early but keeping it chill before rolling all the way into the night.
What is everyone else up to? Getting ready for the FF?
For those of you Chicago MGoBloggers, my local beer store got its shipment of Hopslam this week. I know that there was some turmoil as to when it would be released given the weird two announcements from Bells. But I assure you 2012 Hopslam is out and it is wonderful!
