but not until we beat OSU and MSU. The sentence structure is crucial to success!!

I'm not raising the temp to that level, I'm adding water that has been raised to that temperature. That 190 or 195 degree water only raises the mash temp a few degrees. The Mash out is a single 2 gallon infusion and my sparge protocol is to fly sparge, only a little water is introduced to the mash at a time relative to the total wort mass and is never enough to raise the temp all that much. Otherwise you are completely correct.

Very disappointing. He seemed like a guy that had the talent to be a contributor whichever side of the ball he landed on. Whatever it was that got him in to some supposed hot water, lets hope he gets that stuff straightened out. Best of luck to him and here's hoping this opens up an opportunity for another young man on this promising squad.

I have a Michigan inspired IPA I will be brewing in the not too distant future:
Normally use Michigan 2-row Pale (had to go w/ just regular American b/c my brew shop was out of Pilot Malt House), Victory special malt and Warrior hops. This is my 2nd time on this brew though and I added in the Chinook to try and change up the hop flavoring. I also added in a sprinkle of Black Malt for coloring.

RDT = Roll Damn Tide - it was a whole MgoFiasco. One user had 2 accounts and the 2nd account he claimed to be an Alabama insider who also liked Michigan. He had all this great insight into recruiting...
He would create content, log in with his alter ego and give himself upvotes and things. It was childish and he got outed when he accidentally forgot to switch accounts and made a comment that was clearly meant to be made by his other user.
Hopefully I'm not being a douche-canoe and telling you all these things that you already know?

Upvote, but considering the material, how could you NOT end with and a Partridge brough us Garyyyyyyy?
It's topical, it's a great play on the actual song, and getting Gary to come to Michigan was a MAJOR highlight of this offseason.

I can foresee 1 instance where said shirt would be cool (for a Michigan fan).
Lets say you are a Michigan fan with a family full of Michigan State fans who troll you incessently, especially these last few years when MSU has seemed to have Michigan's number. And lets say one of your MSU loving relatives who knows you are a Michigan fan but generally a good sport about their harassment and generally a good college football fan invites you to a Michigan State game which, b/c they are family, you decide to attend. And lets say for once you want to get your family member's goat but also don't want to be harassed by every MSU fan in the stadium. By and large, a quick glance at the shirt will show only the Sparty logo. Closer review would reveal the rub.
This is the only circumstance I could foresee where wearing this shirt would be plausable. After that, it gets cut up and used for rags when home brewing.
This is NOT a story from real life.

What is this based on? not trying to be an ass, I just haven't heard that Speight has pulled away at all.

This is a great read. Only question: when you said Woodson of 2007, I assumed you meant Woodson of 1997. I don't recall Woodson getting used offensively by the Packers in 2007 but I don't watch as much NFL.
Otherwise, fantastic write up. Top notch wordsmithing.
|1 week 4 days ago||This is histarical to me||
This is histarical to me because as a Manchester United fan, I liken ManU to Michigan (proven winner as manager) and Liverpool to MSU (huuuuuuuge chip on their shoulder and seriously pissed about all the ManU disrespekt).
|1 week 4 days ago||Ehh, I get that comparison now certainly||
as they buy a lot of their talent these days, though home grown talent in top flight soccer is by and large nonexistant now.
I'm from good old Grand Rapids MI, so I guess that puts me right in the middle of 'Out of Towner' but I've been a Man U fan for nearly 20 years. When I was starting to learn about them (and European soccer in general) United's best players were all home grown: David Beckham, the Neville brothers, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs.
United was the first club I knew about and I loved the jerseys, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Jaap Stam, David Beckham and Ruud VanNistelrooy. Loved Sir Alex and the whole United aura.
I get why people don't like them. I also get that I don't give a shit :)

|2 weeks 19 hours ago||Glory, Glory Man United!||
looking forward to Sunday morning's early game when my Reds kick off a championship campaign @ Bournemouth. Ibra to lead the line with 2 goals on the day and Rooney to spot one from the penalty circle. Bournemouth score late to negate the shutout and the crowd cheers early for Paul Pogba even though he has to sit on a yellow card carry over from last year at Juventus. Cannot wait!

I don't think we should be complaining about weather until we beat MSU and OSU.

Dabo does the dab:
...and this goofy dance:
No one talks about how eccentric Dabo is and he's more or less doing the same thing. Amping up his team, and meeting them at their level. It's just dumb.

I agree with you totally. It just seems so weird to me. He's not the first intense coach. Their football coaches. They're all intense. The attention just seems so contrived on the media's side. I hate too that non-Michigan fans also think that it's Michigan fans stirring this pot up. I don't care if he climbs a tree or does a rap video. I just want to see results on the field.
And if the guy happens to drop some dope lines about the B-1-G I'm cool with that too.

Anyone have an opinion on the bizarre media coverage given to Jim Harbaugh? Their fawning is wild and, I'm sure, driving every other coach in the country crazy. I mean I love it, but just curious to know if anyone thinks its weird how much of this Harbaugh obsession is just derived for click bait and whatnot.

I'm actually pretty lucky. My wife does get it. Her fam is full of diehard football fans (mostly Michigan, thankfully) and she is herself (gulp) a pretty big Notre Dame fan (she roots for Michigan in every game except when the two play eachother).
When Michigan lost to MSU last year she let me go outside and walk around like an idiot in the middle of the road with my hands over my head while I said over and over (How did that just happen -- I'm not kidding).
However, she has said well after a game has concluded and my melodrama has subsided that I might want to tone it down a bit for the kid, which, yes she is right and I'm trying to not be such an idiot but HOW CAN YOU NOT CARE ABOUT THE OUTCOME OF THIS GAME!!!!????!
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Usually just me and the fam||
Usually just me and the fam at home (unless things are going badly, then just me b/c I can't hold back the swears) or maybe my brother-in-law or a few Michigan fan friends. Just a few, never a big group.
I learned awhile ago not to watch the game with people who don't care about football as 1) they are not a fan of my fluxuating mood, and 2) their relative nonchalance drives me batshit crazy. HOW CAN YOU NOT CARE ABOUT THE OUTCOME OF THIS GAME!?!?!?!?!?!?!

1. This sounds like a badass rig.
2. Pics or I don't believe you.
All kidding aside, how much does a setup like that cost!? I've been intrigued by the electric brewing method but A) I don't consider myself that crafty so would be afraid I'd blow myself up setting something like that up, 2) I've already invested a bunch of money in the propane rig, and D) I wouldn't know where to begin with a setup like that.
And a build your own walk-in cooler... that just sounds insanely expensive.
