What are you guys drinking to celebrate the end of ot season? Maybe even Voltron is Handsome will upvote it!
I currently have a few bottles of Little Sumpin' Extra I was able to find today! I have heard it's awesome, so I'm excited to give it a shot.
Edited - I am turning this into a posbang too. UPVOTES FOR EVERYONE!
I promised a follow up on the skydive challenge my daughter put me up to so here it is under the deadline wire. Im sure you can have a few laughs on this No Ragrats. Not even a letter.
Big Ten Champs 2014
We have 24 hours to get out the rest of the OT threads for 2014, so lets get it out of our system.
But most importantly:
Also important: Please do not talk about this Tigers game... Like ever. Never again.
I'm sure a lot of us are in a fantasy league, so let's have some fun.
I drafted first overall in a 12-team snake draft.
QB: Tom Brady - NE
RB: LeSean McCoy - Phi
RB: Alfred Morris - Wsh
WR: Antonio Brown - Pit
WR: Percy Harvin - Sea
TE: Kyle Rudolph - Min
FLEX: Marques Colston - NO WR
D/ST: Denver Broncos
K: Robbie Gould - Chi (I thought about taking Nate Freese from the Lions for homer reasons, but this is less of a risk)
Nick Foles - Phi QB
Lamar Miller - Mia RB
DeAndre Hopkins - Hou WR
Steve Smith - Bal WR
Devonta Freeman - Atl RB
Jake Locker - Ten QB (I figured "why not?" that late in the draft, and if he does well enough I can try to trade him)
Travis Kelce - KC TE (I thought about taking Tyler Eifert from the Bengals, but I can't have TWO Notre Dame tight ends)
What do you guys got?
In news relating to everyone's favorite non-revenue sport (well, my favorite anyhow), the outlines of the 2015 schedule have been released. I say outlines because the tournaments we'll be playing in have been announced, but not the specific opponents/dates/times yet in terms of most of the non-conference slate. As usual, though, Michigan will be taking some challenging road trips including visits to FSU, Alabama, ASU, the Judi Garman Classic, and the lidlfter at USF.
Getting those challenging experiences in during the non-conference schedule will be, if anything, even more crucial than usual, as the Big Ten slate Michigan has been dealt is just dreadful. Michigan will only face one of the four possible opponents who made the NCAA tournament last year (the defending B10 Tournament champions, Minnesota, on the road) and only one other team that even cracked the top half of last year's B10, Ohio State, who turned in an uninspiring 30-25 (13-10) record last year.
After that, things get really ugly, as Michigan faces three sub-.500 teams from last year's B10 in Iowa, Indiana, and PSU. Michigan also draws both newcomers, making road trips to Maryland and Rutgers. Maryland turned in a horrendous 11-35 (7-16, 9th in the ACC) campaign littered with embarassing losses. Rutgers fared better, going 34-17 in the AAC, but their record was stained by a number of bad losses as well, and they missed the NCAA tournament.
All in all, things set up very well for a battle-tested Michigan team to make a run at yet another Big Ten title, on the strength of Romero's bat & three experienced pitchers. There's a lot to replace on offense, but a ton of talent as always!
His thesis is that it was because the Tigers didn't trust Fister because he couldn't break 90MPH with his fastball.
