stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
Wasn't the record 38?
University of Tom Brady, B.A. '10; University of Peyton Manning, J.D. '13.
Record is 49.
Did 49 last year. DT, taken in the 2nd round by the Chicago Bears.
"Over? Did you say, over? Nothing is over until we decide it is!"
[W]hen Justin Ernest of Eastern Kentucky set a Combine bench press record with 51 reps in 1999, he wasn’t drafted. And Ernest’s achievement has been forgotten to such an extent that when Oregon State’s Stephen Paea hit 49 reps last year, it was widely reported as an all-time record.
41 is amazing.
That is amazing, but I suspect he's a bit disappointed. He said in the ESPN story on he and Martin that he'd done 39 reps after an entire workout. I suspect he was hoping for a bigger jump. Still, amazing. I hope his potential is seen and translates to an decent draft position.
He's all talk.
Someone told me that each equation I included in the book would halve the sales.
When lifting a weight so much less than what you train at you really don't notice as big of a difference between rep #'s fresh than after training. Hitting 39 after a workout does not necessarily mean you can do 10 more fresh.
41 reps is freaking crazy though.. Congrats! Goodluck to MM.
Just like if you go rep a 50 lb bench press to exhaustion. Eventually trying to lift just 50 lbs is just as hard as lifting 500 lbs.
“True loyalty is that quality of service that grows under adversity and expands in defeat. Any street urchin can shout applause in victory, but it takes character to stand fast in defeat. One is noise — the other, loyalty.”
dudes a bigger beast than I thought he already was. Congrats David you will be missed.
21 years of coaching and every senior who stayed had at least 1 big ten title... That is what " Those who stay will be champions" will really get you Ohio native Bo Schembechler.
The record is actually 51. This is from FOXSports.com:
Justin Ernest of Eastern Kentucky repped 225 pounds 51 times in 1999, but he wasn’t drafted. Ernest’s record was nearly forgotten last year as Oregon State’s Stephen Paea hit 49 reps last year, which was widely reported as the new all-time record.
Those who stay will be champions.
Just checked. Just for a comparison, Jake Long only did 37 reps (Yes, I'm being facetious).
Molk is a monster. I can't wait to find out what Mike Martin lifts.
Jake's 37 seems more impressive. He has really long arms. Molk has velociraptor arms.
They no longer call me Bisbiño
Is there a time limit on this?
No, but the bar needs to stay in your hands. Once it's down, your count is over.
... as fast as possible is recommended.
Do Something. If it works, do more of it. If it doesn't, do something else.
Someone is getting a real good player lower in the draft- he's going to be a steal!
Colts need OL help and Saturday might retire.
I tried to do a pull-up yesterday and ended up in a shame spiral that culminated with me eating 2 boxes of girl scout Samoa cookies.
41 reps is cool though.
I just bought 3 boxes of those, those are some amazing cookies!
“When your team is winning, be ready to be tough, because winning can make you soft. On the other hand, when your team is losing, stick by them. Keep believing” - Bo Schembechler
Believe it or not, Girl Scouts of America changed the name of those cookies from Samoas to Carmel Delites a few years ago. The good thing is that they did not alter the deliciousness of said cookies.
Each GS council chooses which bakery's bid to accept - the bakeries have different names for a few of the cookies, inclusing Samoas/Carmel Delites.

Didn't want to offend Samoans?

I wouldn't want to offend a Samoan.

Those who stay...
Sorry if I missed this. What is he doing reps of? Bench press @ 225?
Da. Si. Oui.
Anyone know when MM will lift? Do defensive players workout on different days? Not an NFL fan though as I get older following players seems to pull a guy into it.
Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts - Richard Feynman
According to the NFL, the OL prospects dont lift and do drills until tomorrow, he was banging out 41 reps as a warmup, I doubt this doesn's seem right
MaizeNBrew also has Molk doing his workouts tomorrow (Sat)
Caveman with an informative first post. I sense a deep understanding of irony...
You've found the right place!
it says Molk put up 41 reps in the bench press.
Never half ass two things, just whole ass one thing. - Ron Swanson.
Mike Adams did 19 reps.
I know from experience dude. If you know what I mean.
Isnt he supposed to be the #1 center in the draft? Yikes
EDIT: Just saw that Peter Konz is #1 center, my mistake
In the last five years only 4 players have put up 41 or more reps... all positions included. Now five.... soon to be six.
Just for context.
When does Martin get to take his turn at reps?
@BarwisMethods said he thinks MM goes on Sunday
... bold of you.
I also feel Molk is not happy with 41 reps, but the fact remains with very few OL left to BP, the next closest is David DeCastro with 34.... Kudos to Molk!!!!
It contains the following:
For comparison, Wisconsin center Peter Konz posted 18 reps in the bench press, and he's projected to be a first-round pick. Konz said shortly after the lift that at the center position, too much shouldn't be made of combine measurables such as bench-press reps. "There's so many variables, I don't chalk it up much," he said. "I try to use my technique, but that's something I'll work out." When asked about Molk's 41 reps -- more than twice what he posted in the same event -- Konz said: "It'll translate a little bit (to NFL play), but at the same time, you need to know what kind of football player a guy is."
Yeah, Rimington, All American, played the Sugar Bowl on one foot. What a silly attempt to cover for the difference in their strength. All truths, to be sure, but weak.
Ooh, I feel emboldened and embiggened today!
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
I agree with Konz. Strength isn't a big deal for Centers, and especially "pushing straight out with your arms" strength.
Molk is a beast and hopefully he goes somewhere with the opportunity to start within the next couple of years. Also, I really hope the Lions don't draft Mike Adams like I have seen some Mock Drafts projecting. First, he went to OSU which makes him undraftable and Second,19 reps at 225 for an expected first round offensive tackle is pathetic.
