|16 weeks 5 days ago||Agreed.||
State needed a miracle play to beat a Michigan team that struggled in many areas yesterday.
Miracles will not help State in the coming years...
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Nice jab about the Ingham County Prison||
Totally agree with the fullback usage. It's a great call that mixes things up a bit.
It's also a great display of the improved O-line play. Those fullback runs don't happen if the O-line isn't opening a hole for them.
It will be tougher to run against State's D-line- but Kerridge and Houma can just lower their helmets and soften up some ribs. 2-3 quarters of that should pay divedends for the rest of the running game in the 4th quarter.

Threw all this together yesterday and it's quite tasty. Kind of a blend of ethnic ingredients- just like our great country:
1/2 rack of ribs
3 yukon gold potatoes cubed
1/2 vidalia onion
1 jar polish sauerkraut
10 oz. can of Ro Tel diced tomatoes & green chiles
2-3 good shakes of creole seasoning
1 1/2 cans of cheap beer (Hamm's special light used yesterday)
1 can of Glade *
Knew I'd be gone all day, so threw it the crock pot.
Mixed it up good and set on high for first 2 hours and low for another 4.
Came home late last night from fireworks and had some. Took bones out, drained 3/4 of the juices and stirred together. Very good.
* Will have to warn you- the smell is rather "potent" (both during and after- if you know what I mean).
Think I'll make again sometime.

Breaston's records- he'll have earned it. He has been an exciting return man and hopefully will finally reach pay-dirt on one this season.
However, what would Norfleet setting the record for number of KOR already as a junior mean? Did DN field a larger percentage of kick-offs than SB because the other return man caught more on Breaston's teams? I remember SB being injured from time- could this be why? And, the least desireable reason- have we been giving up so many scores that Norfleet can reach these marks already?
Not sure if we can really know this answer for sure......(I need to get back to drinking)
Anyway, here's hoping Norfleet smashes the records- by fielding only the 2nd half kick-off every game!

Whenever I read about the character of these young men (recruits and current players) and see the comments that some of"their best qualities are off the field", the sting of this past season doesn't hurt as much.

As much as opposing teams can smell blood in the water after our last two efforts, the team that put up 59 points in the opener and played pretty well against ND is also in the back of their minds.
Which Michigan team will show up this Saturday?
|2 years 20 weeks ago||I find that games-||
and other things in life that you look forward to and anticipate- should be approached with hope, not expectations. Expectations can be difficult to achieve. And unmet expectations get me frustrated and can steal the joy of what overall is a great experience.
Hoping the boys have a good couple of weeks getting ready for the B1G schedule!
|2 years 21 weeks ago||Ugly- yes.||
This is still a fairly young team, and this is part of the growing pains.
Are they ready to handle the success and expectations that follow a big win like the ND game? Not quite yet, as today's game proved, but they won.
Part of the on-going learning will be how they respond this week in practice.
I am optimistic the UConn game will show they are still learning- and still moving forward toward a B1G champion-caliber team.
Better days (and better wins) ahead. Cheers!

Is that a watermelon seed in Nick's nostril?
Dead or Alive casting:

After just reading about the HTTV Football Preview being available at Moe's, do you or anyone else know the address of Moe's? HTTV for me, t-shirt for her.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Thanks for the advice,||
Wolverine In Exile- and beautiful picture.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Probably just grabbing||
a quick bite after a busy morning. This explains breaking news reports that Columbus has been turned into a smoldering crater.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Watching a game is great,||
but it's not like this is Michigan - Michigan State or The Game. Nothing against UConn, but this should be a definite W for the good guys. Pop an earbud in one ear, and listen to the game while you travel Europe. Make the most of this great opportunity! Watch a full game replay when you get back.
As stated in other posts, Frank and Jim are a good listen.

As much as I love the craft brews, always enjoy returning to my roots now and then.

signature quote. Well done.
Could well be shirt material. Headshot of swag Mattison on the front, and his quote on the back. I would buy that.

"Where's Urban- he's still over there in the hallway admiring a janitor's ass."
|2 years 34 weeks ago||I get melancholy||
with cursed double posts.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||I get melancholy||
thinking about the season that led up to that game. That Citrus Bowl game was a glimpse of what could have been had half our team not been injured or playing at well less than 100% due to said injuries. It was a sweet win though.
Jacksonville's Wolverine backfield would be awesome!
|2 years 35 weeks ago||It just occurred to me,||
watching the Breaston highlights. Had Denard been a receiver, how much alike this footage would be to his. Slap a 16 over the 15 on these clips and it could almost pass for his highlights.
From Breaston to Robinson to ??? Who will emerge as the next "Lightning in a Bottle" in the Maize and Blue?
Also, great memories of Manningham. What a talent.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Lots of bad memories||
listed in this post. Here's to far fewer in the coming years!
Gotta go with the 2007 Rose Bowl. 2006 was a great season. So much excitement and defensive destruction. The ohio game was a heartbreaker, and getting robbed by the damn computers for a NC rematch was confusing and frustrating. Those rough couple of weeks passed, and was really looking forward to dumping USC and putting the "Agony in the Armpit" behind us.
Instead, it was a lifeless display against a Trojan team we made look a lot better than they actually were. Have never felt as empty at 11-2 than that year.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Maybe it's just my monitor,||
but is that the "Manute Bol" size?
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Good point.||
Cabrera's ability to hit pitches that are not strikes- and hit them hard- will be required for the foreseeable future. He is so hot right now, that he will not see many strikes. I would also expect him to have a huge increase of walks, no matter how well Prince is hitting. And when Feilder is hitting, we will punish them.
Great time to be a Tiger and Wolverine!
Edit: AND also a great time to be a Red Wing!

|2 years 38 weeks ago||I count 22 on this list||
for 2015. Seems about right for how many we'll take for this class.
I think you misspelled "Committing"- was spelled "Of interest".
Also, we should have at least 75% of the 2015 class and 50% of the 2016 class signed by now. Wish Hoke and Co. would do some damn recruiting already!

were instructed during their potty training years to bid their little turds farewell with "Bye-bye buckeyes" as they flushed.

|2 years 38 weeks ago||Totally agree, M-Wolverine.||
Pistons-Celtics was amazing in the late 80's. Some real hate in that rivalry. As much as I lived and died with the Pistons fortunes and loathed the Celtics, I always admired McHale. A complete player. Great defense, great rebounding, and as you stated, had about a million moves with his back to the basket. His jump hook was absolutely leathal.
Along with Ainge, Brad Lohaus was always a great choice to have his face caved in. Damn that was some great basketball!
|2 years 38 weeks ago||I was thinking||
mad scientist / evil genius. The big glasses, beady eyes, grease board full of crazy formulas.
Should be wearing a white lab coat with a background of boiling concoctions, pulsing electric globes and a withered Andy Katzenmoyer hanging from a torture rack on the back wall.

|2 years 39 weeks ago||One of the overlooked||
aspects of Gallon's game is Gallon himself. The guy is stout. Most mention him being only 5'8, but he's a thick 5'8. Cornerbacks that he just doesn't zip around aren't able to knock him off his routes because he strong enough to absorb the jam and continue on his way.
Worthy of the #1? If he was running out of the tunnel wearing it for the opener, would not have a problem with that.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||The power of the||
Hoke recruiting juggernaut now even trumps graduation / spent eligibility. The debates over who will wear number 2 are null and void as Woodson returns this fall. However, the battle over number 1 will be fierce between AC, David Terrell and Braylon.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||"Beating us for recruits?"||
Are we really "beating" staee for recruits? I don't think so, since that would mean state was actually some competition for a recruit.
"That's never happened before."
Clearly rcmb has members that are only 4 or 5 years old with no knowledge of pre-2008 recruiting.
Even if this poster is being sarcastic, it's still hillarious.
Welcome aboard Mr. Marshall!

Very clever. Let's see if it works (awesome pic response) for me as well:
Peppers is such an incredible talent, he could be used on special teams, returning punts and Kunis...

an undefeated season and counting the minutes to the next Saturday. Maybe hit a local watering hole, watch state fans crash and burn during their loss, have a few laughs.

Must be too much like shoelaces for Denard.
