Channing Stribling Question
It's an absolute insane world when people ask ranking questions on a blog that is primarily devoted to Michigan football.
That is absolutely awesome.
is why actual voting needs to come back!
No, they have not.
I raise you one Ford Escort
and raise you one, uhh, this
Your transformer-thing is no match for my carnivorous stop sign
Nothing is a match for the AMC Eagle
... that's still no match for my boat ride:
See THIS is how you ride a boat
Please tell me what cartoon this was from! I've tried to explain it in the past and people have thought I was crazy.......which might be true but at least they can't commit me for this!
You are no longer alone. Turbo Teen.
You are my hero. I've been trying to figure out the name of this show for years! It's weird the things that I thought were cool when I was 8. and 18.
I'm glad my internet habit is so useful.
My first car was a '94 Ford Escort LX 2-door with a 5 speed. I called it the Racescort, because it was so fast. Obviously.
0-60 in 11.1s
[Insert Friday DAMNNNN!!! gif here]
My first car was a Burgandy 1968 Pontiac Catalina 4 Door with a 400 engine. I put air shocks, mag wheels, about 200 yards of white pinstriping on it and then flipped the air cleaner upside down to make it sound louder. Baaaaaadaaaaaas ride.
That car must've weighed close to 5,000 pounds.
88 horsepower? That might be, but when you're behind the wheel, you'd swear it's 90+.
My first car was/is a '99 Malibu with a tendency to overheat in the desert and while climbing steep grades, which is unfortunate, because I live in Utah.
BONUS! Herm's first car:
Mine was a hand-me-down white chevrolet caprice estate station wagon with fake wood paneling.
The only positive was that I could fit 8 people in it for late-night rides into Philly for a Pat's run.
2.5L 4Cyl and a 5 Speed.
126 HP (in 1991) at the redline of 5250RPM. 0-60 in 14 seconds (with a tail wind). My dad loved that it was so slow. Slowest 1st car on the board?
I don't exactly recall all the specs of it, but I had a 78 volkswagon rabbit as my first car (in 1990 so it was a bit of an antique...lol). It was red and we called it the red baron and sliced a little line in the tint on the back windows when we would pass anyone to keep track off the poor suckers we shot down.
It was a great car for a 16 year old and my Dad only bought it for me so I wouldn't reck his vehicles so it was a win win for both of us. It was a 4 speed and once it got going it would go, but it was nothing special in that department. I still miss that old beast!
I got a '91 in 2003, so it was 12 years old too. It'd go 60, 65, and even 70 if the wind was right. Beyond that it got dicey though. The top and doors would billow and cross winds on the highway were harrowing.
Mine was a '56 Beetle with a '64 engine that barely climbed the local eastern Ohio hills - sometimes felt like retrograde motion. Cost me $75 and worth every penny until I rolled it trying to do 360s around a sharp curve.
Only car I know of to lose a drag race with the Chevette my buddy was stuck driving in HS. (Early 80's) It was not only slow, but a true chick magnet too. /s
In fairness to the car, it did get decent mileage which was nice for broke HS kids and it was very reliable (a plus for my parents).
My first car was a "lightly used" 1991 Lumina coups - sky blue with grey cloth seats and black trim - which had the 3.1 L V6 and a 5-speed manual transmission on which only 4 of the speeds would not cause a stall. It was also obviously manufactured during the year-long experiment with no primer in the paint shop at the plant where it was made, so I only know it was sky blue from the paint that was left when I happened upon it.
I am sure Herm was a little better at riding than that guy!
Still rockin the 1995 Volvo 940. The thing has 249,000 miles on it, so 2013 should be a big year!
Any comment that mentions Herm usually makes me smile but this one takes the cake. Tremendous!
(All in good fun, Herm. All in good fun.)
You had a coupe that was slow as hell but looked like it was a little sporty and had some giddiyap.
My first car was an '89 LeSabre with the GM 3.7L V6 in it. With a blue vinyl top. Plush cloth interior. Not only did it LOOK like it was owned by my Grandmother. It actually was. But for being a Geriatric mobile, that thing could flat out move. I always wanted to get hold of a turbo and turn it into an after-market T-Type. Most of the engine was the same as in a Regal Grand National.
was a 1964 brown and white Ramber Stationwagon. It was a real "Shaggin wagon" - unfortunately I had acne, bad teeth and about two dollars in my pocket. Needless to say it was too much car for me.
This bitch 'bout to be Avada Kedavra'ed!
I hope it stays and just turns into a humpday posbang gif-thread.
Finals are brutal.
Also had a question about Stribling. Obviously he's not a candidate to decommit or anything but is his committment so strong that no others schools have even bothered to offer? I just figured that since he blew up this summer/senior season, he would get some offers from atleast local schools (UNC, UT, UVA etc.). Just wondering what the deal is
I think it has to do with the fact that he is so solid with Michigan. The schools you mentioned aren't usually mentioned when you talk about schools that try to switch committed players. But, I am surprised that he hasn't gotten more offers.
That only the post that actually have something to do with the OP are being marked as offtopic...lol. Isn't it ironic.Here's a plus 1 from me anyway.
Can we stop downvoting people with honest questions about Stribling? No need to be a jerk, thanks.
Pretty sure it is meant as a joke.
But some people would actually like to discuss Michigan recruits. Fuck it, I'm getting too old for this shit.
I hereby declare that we be able to start random NOTU (Never Opposed To Upton) threads.
just breaks into dance. What a joyful expression. Thanks Kate.
recruit right there.
I know ND recruits well, but that's one 5* that you're NEVER gonna get, Mr. Jass.
Does anyone know when they will be ranked. I heard he could possibly be headed to a four star?
Rivals updated their 4 stars who missed the 250 today.
So it doesnt look like he'll get a 4 star rank but i wouldnt be suprised if he gets a 3 star (5.7) grade. My guess is that'll be done tomorrow
4 stars just based on his pic on Rivals - he looks ready to open a can of whoop-ass on someone.
Seriously, his heroics on their run through the state playoffs scream "playmaker" and "big-time competitor". If the coaches liked his physical tools at camp then I can't wait to see him compete against the big boys next fall.
Conley having a significant injury at b-ball game last night. Mattison was there
Bad ankle sprain, nothing of long term.
You guys are kinda pathetic. Honestly, why does it matter and who gives a shit?
How do you not know that numbers and rankings matter! Get with it. Besides with no game on the horizon for the next month there is nothing wrong with asking a question about Michigan recruits. There are a few who do care - so don't have a cow and get over yourself.
My apologies sir, you are right, star rankings do matter for those who follow superficial aspects of football, I suppose.
