Did he let you run your hand through his hair? What did it smell like?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Lots of things to consider||
I made the shift to the DE/Straight Edge world about 3 years ago. So all this is from experience.
1 - http://badgerandblade.com/ has a bunch of good information on there
2 - Buy a cheap strop and learn on that. You will likely knick and cut it, better to do it to a $20 strop than a $75+ one.
3 - Use a DE razor first. It's a totally different ballgame than the 8 blade Mach Jet Glide world. You want to use as little pressure as possible.
4 - When you move to a straight edge, start with a rounded tip. More user friendly for the beginner.
5 - I still only shave with the grain on my face, my beard isn't that heavy. With proper stretching I can get an excellent shave just going in one direction and cleaning up tougher areas (chin) with my DE. Don't chase the perfect 4-way shave if you don't need to.
6- Just get a finishing stone if you plan on sharpening your own blades. You likely will never have enough experience to buy all the stones necessary to rehab a very dull blade. I have all the stones, and only rarely use the finishing stone. Proper stropping will keep the blade plenty sharp for a long time.
7 - In terms of shave soaps/creams. I use Arko and Cella. Very cheap and makes good lather. You can spend $40 on soap, only to be frustrated in your lack of ability to make good foam. Start small.
8 - I'd recommend a brush that is on the stiffer side. My brush is a little floppy and I think that's my problem when struggling to make foam.
9 - Don't ever use a straight edge when you don't have 30 minutes to dedicate to it. Last thing you want to do is rush. Shaving after a shower is the best. I invested a lot of money in the whole game pre kids when I had more time and sleep wasn't at a premium. Now that I have kids I might use the straight edge once a week. A DE shave is much better than Mach 3 shave, and much simpler than a straight edge. Therefore, the DE is my go to.
Also, price the razors out. They may be better kept as a collectors item.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||If one really wanted to, I'm||
If one really wanted to, I'm convinced you could get started in the DE world for less than $100. Then yearly soaps and blades could be bought for less than $15/year.
But it's way too easy to turn it into an expensive hobby.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||For the B1G tourney results piece||
The debate was more along the lines of building momentum. My friend is an OSU fan, his thought was that if OSU won the conference they would be "hot" and perform well in the NCAA tourney.

I agree with a lot of what you said. If I had that that exchange with a recruit, I'd write something like this....
I exchanged some texts with Malik tonight. As you know, he released a top 7 recently and there's no order to it. This interesting because [insert some insight to previous recruiting info]. Originally, he was going to make his decision during the AA game, but he's not so sure now. Malik has always been one of the tougher recruits to read. He, his parents, and coaches have done a great job of keeping things close to the vest which is their right. He seems like a high character kid, whichever school he ends up at will end up with a great student athlete.
|38 weeks 3 days ago||Don't forget, sometimes||
Don't forget, sometimes perception = reality. There are a lot of people on this board giving you their perception of the situation. Are we really that far off from what some recruits might think?
|38 weeks 3 days ago||By posting the exchange||
By posting the exchange verbatim you are telling recruits there is absolutely no confidentiality in any communication. They will be (or should be) 100% cautious about anything they say or text to you. That is no way to build any kind of rapport with a recruit. Next thing you know, you're going to be reporting on the recruits tone of voice when you talked to them. You should at least get explicit permission to post a verbatim conversation with them before posting.
I know we all beg and plead for information on here, but no report might be your best move sometimes. Both for your career and for MGoBlog.

Obviously there is a correlation between a school's tradition, long term success, and the number of draft picks. But to say that a 4* is going to waste his career going to a "2nd tier" school is a little ridiculous. I don't think Michigan has had slamming success in the draft the last few years either.

I know I'm going to sound like Donnie Do Gooder, but if I was Weaver I probably would have gone for market value and donated whatever he feels he didn't need.
But overall, I agree it is refreshing to see Weaver's approach to contracts.

The NFL press release is very vague and provides no details. Will anything come of this, I doubt it.
But it's very likely that Pryor, to one degree or another, showed why he failed to cooperate with the NCAA.
Do you think the conversation went like this?
NFL: Why didn't you cooperate with the NCAA?
Pryor: Because I didn't want to
NFL: OK, you're good to go
Does the NFL really want to get involved in the NCAA process? I highly doubt it. I'm sure it would be up to the NCAA to request transcripts (if they exist) of interviews between Pryor and the NFL.

Pryor did some lawyering and they provided some details that showed Pryor would have been suspended for the entire 2011 season if he would have cooperated with the NCAA. Thus, he should be elligible for supplemental draft.
I believe this had to do with receiving payments from Saranik (sp?) and other NCAA violations. What a lot of the UM fan base is hoping for is that the new info revealed to the NFL, will be noted by the NCAA and additional findings will be submitted to Ohio.

I played at Whitmer ~ 10 years ago. It was a big deal when the rust covered lockers got painted. Glad to see things have changed in that area, I've heard it's all been funded by boosters, fundraising, etc... I hope that's true, because I know the district wasn't in the best shape financially when I was there either.

It will be pretty interesting to see how Mouton and Ezeh fare in the NFL. I think it will be a pretty good barometer on the level of coaching they've received, and from a few stories (and what we all witnessed on TV) it wasn't much.

I think stating there is a lack of values means the rules and procedures are ignored (and might as well not exist). Which is probably worse then having sub par rules and procedures that are followed.
You can spin words any way you want, but that's my take.

I've heard this too, not to mention he was 1st team all-state and defensive district player of the year.
Kenny Hayes a higher 4* DE recruit to OSU was on the team last year, and I'm pretty sure Wormley was regarded as the better player. So getting double and triple team might tend to slow down the highlight reel.
Also, he has long been rumored to be OSU or Michigan, so the big time national programs haven't even bothered. Few offers = lower rankings to recruting sites.

They may be giving hockey fans in Cleveland too much credit. The only way they'll fill the place up is if they sell beer and fans make a party of it.
Personally I hope it happens since I live in Cleveland. But this thing has the potential to flop on its face by either no one showing up or drunken mayhem.

I believe the practice of giving footballs to babies is still around.
To give another example. About 10 years ago I was a JR backup OL. We made the playoffs and traveled to Massillon Perry for the game.
When walking from the locker to the field for warm-ups we passed a group of families tailgating.
I heard a kid yell, "Hey [My Last Name Here], you SUCK!!!" We didn't have names on the back of our jersey's. The kid knew who a back up OL was based on my number. He had to be 10-12 years old.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||I've lived in Ohio my whole||
I've lived in Ohio my whole life....grew up in NW Ohio which is regarded as the weakest area outside of SE where nobody lives.
The reasons I would give, Ohio has a long standing history with football.
The Hall of Fame is here.
Paul Brown has a professional team, and a professional stadium named after him.
Massillon Washington won 9 national titles from 1939-1961, so high school football has been a big deal in NE Ohio for a looong time.
They kind of got a head start (in regards to big time high school football) on everyone...kind of like the University of Michigan got a head start on college football.
I live in Cleveland now, and I may be the only person in the area who really cares about hockey.
Browns are by far #1 (even though the Browns stink), then the Indians, then Cavs a distant 3rd (this was skewed by success of LeBron era).

The odd thing to me is, is this decision really hinging on one Bowl Game? I find that hard to believe. DB has his decision 99% made...if the decision is made to keep RR then it makes no sense to not announce it now and give him an extension.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||I think (which means nothing)||
IF RR gets canned, then I'm guessing DB wants to avoid having all parties vilified by the press for taking jobs before a bowl game (see Kelly to ND, RR to Mich)
If RR stays, then it makes no sense.
I think DB is underestimating the negative impact on recruiting this would have.

While you can glean a decent amount from data, this place acts like it's the end all be all. It seems like every week there are 45 charts projecting, predicting, and analyzing.
Did we really need charts to figure out Wisconsin has a massive o-line with good backs and we have a very bad defense. Hence, Wisconsin will probably run at will.
I'm waiitng for a player to tweet that he has indegestion and his farts stink, then someone to immediately put together a chart going over the records of tems who have had a key player fart within 24 hours of kickoff.

As guys get bigger and faster hits are only going to be more violent.
I forget where I read/heard it, but I think Oklahoma at one point used "soft" shelled helmets in practice that were actually safer. But switched to the "hard" shell because they wanted an even playing field and have the "weapon".
Another solution....take off the facemasks.
Edit: I will state that I don't agree with Goodell going fine crazy and changing the rules/enforcement mid-season. You're basically asking guys to change the way they play in an ineffective way.

To me the prettiest ball I've ever seen in person was a Ryan Mallett deep ball (even though they were few and far between his frosh year). There was just something about watching it fly through the air that left me speechless.

They each would have been on the hook for $10,020 over the course of the year.

I agree with you that they rude and should consider others.
Personally however, I think more people should stand up, cheer and be loud. Michigan has the largest stadium in the country with very little home field advantage.
Plus, what do you always hear recruits say about any visit, "Man, the fans were crazy and really into the game". Not, "Man it was really quiet in there, it's like they all were watching the game at home on their couches...that was awesome".
To bad designated sections for standing and sitting aren't feasible .
