I still have a piece of the 40 yard line in a sandwich bag.

I lived in the land of Bourbon for a number of years, and if you really want a good one and money isn't tight, try the Pappy VanWinkle 23 year. Fantastic stuff but the last I looked, a fifth was in the $80 range. For more manageable pricing, you can't go wrong with Woodford Reserve.
|6 years 36 weeks ago||The main difference in Graham and Suh||
Graham put up his stats from Defensive End which means he is on the outside of the line and typically faces a single offensive lineman with the occasional double team (although the double team probably happened more often with Graham than most DEs). Suh on the other hand plays Defensive Tackle which in the traditional sense often demands double and even triple teams.
Often, a great DT will have next to no measureable statistics because his primary job is to occupy blockers to free up his DEs and Linbackers to make the tackles/sacks. The fact that Suh was able to put up those overall stats is amazing in the context of his position which is why I believe he's a freak of nature. If he put up the same stats from LB or even DE, they would be merely great. Just my take. I'm not a football coach, but I've watched stats enough over the years to know that Defensive Tackles, even the really good ones, don't normally do this.

I'd like the Lions to sit their 4 or 5 competent players for the rest of the season so that we don't get a fluke win and disqualify ourselves from the Suh sweepstakes. I was fortunate enough to have been in the stadium in '97 for all of Woodson's performances, and I haven't seen a defensive player dominate the game like he did until this year with Suh. The guy is quite honestly special. Graham is awesome and should've been an All-American in my book, but Suh is at a whole different level IMHO.

Many, many congratulations on getting this community involved and doing a great thing. Keep up the fantastic work!
|6 years 37 weeks ago||I remember that...||
We actually did something remotely good for kids. Who would've thought with that group?
|6 years 43 weeks ago||Great Tradition||
I'm an old Phi Psi, and I know a good number of us will be out to support the event. Give us a good show tomorrow, play hard, and then we can all go watch Penn State's BCS hopes go down the drain. What a great day!

I agree with most of the levelheaded commentary here. Blount made personal calls to both the opposing coach and the player he punched to offer an apology. In addition to this, he decided to remain with the team knowing that he was in the doghouse of his coach and school administration while assuming that he wouldn't be allowed to play another down for the team. He definitely made a stupid, stupid mistake in the heat of the moment, but his actions afterward showed me that he has character that goes beyond that one boneheaded moment on the field. He's going to pay for this additionally with a drop in the draft next year (if he's drafted at all), and to me, he's paid enough for the crime. Let the kid show that he can redeem himself.
|6 years 46 weeks ago||Agreed||
Benpom should've made sure the place was covered in rose petals and that he put on his good cologne instead of the Brittish Sterling he normally wears for these occasions. Fortt would've been overcome with the non-creepiness that is the Michigan experience and committed on the spot. No sugarcoat.

and we just scored another touchdown!
|6 years 46 weeks ago||Thank you||
That's a little more reassuring! Good find!

Doesn't it mean Saint Diego?
|6 years 47 weeks ago||Re: Penn State||
Maybe we both could "throwback" to leather helmets since the uniforms have only changed slightly over the years? That'd be novel in an "everyone's concussed" sort of way.
|6 years 47 weeks ago||1997 OSU||
I still have a piece of the 40 yard line sod from that game in a plastic bag (I avoided being maced although my buddy Vince wasn't as lucky).
|6 years 47 weeks ago||When I saw TT and McShay||
with no OT heading, I thought this post was going to be about one of the Talbott brothers. Oh well.
|6 years 47 weeks ago||Louisville||
I wish I'd have known there was another Michigan fan around when I lived in the Highlands for 6 years. I signed up for the Alumni Association when I first moved down so that I could meet people to watch the games, and at the time, I was the only member in the Louisville chapter that they listed. Epic fail! Anyway, Go Blue!
|6 years 47 weeks ago||Demographic||
I'm not sure about the normal demographic, but our group in town for the wedding is mid 20's to early 30's. We should have at least 10 or 15 of us that are alums and want to get out for the game.
|6 years 47 weeks ago||Thank you||
For the additional info! I appreciate it. It's also been mentioned that we might come down and watch it with you guys. Apparently someone in our group knew about the bar you go to as well. We haven't decided yet, but maybe we'll see you on Saturday. Thanks again, and GO Blue!!!
|6 years 47 weeks ago||Holy Jebus!!||
You made me feel old. Thanks.
|6 years 47 weeks ago||We've got a Michigan wedding party||
that are all looking for the place to go Saturday. We're mostly out of towners staying in Santa Monica. Is South worthwhile? Any opinions aside from Mustaches?

I almost spit out my dinner when I saw this. Well played!
|7 years 14 weeks ago||Very good question||
I think the question of where World Wide Wes fits and if anything is happening that is truly against the rules is a great one to ask. He seems to always have the in with many top recruits, and there seems to be no question that he steers them to certain programs/coaches (see: Chris Douglas-Roberts). That being said, those programs/coaches deserve to be monitored closely. Just an opinion from me. I haven't seen any fire, but doesn't the air smell a little smokey? What's in it for Wes and the other advisors?
|7 years 14 weeks ago||I hope UK is ready...||
for the scrutiny to their recruiting practices that a class like this and the name Calipari should eventually bring. I remember the last 10 years of Michigan basketball, and I don't think that Lexington could take that.
|7 years 14 weeks ago||I would love to see...||
in that order. We don't seem to play those teams much, and now that master cheater Callipari is at UK, they all should have a lot of talent and be near the top of the rankings.

I thought as I was reading your post that we might've attended the same bachelor party until I got to the point where you said "several adult beverages". Had you said "copious amounts of booze" instead then there would've probably been a good chance we know each other.
|7 years 15 weeks ago||Can she change?||
If she's not a Notre Dame alumnae, you have an outside shot, but at 81, it is probably miniscule. You'll probably have to convince her that The Emu drives by middle schools with piles of candy in his windowless van to get anywhere. Good luck!

He was all class. They just don't seem to make coaches like that anymore. He will be missed. Sad few weeks for Detroit sports with George Kell, The Bird, and now Daddy Rich.
|7 years 15 weeks ago||Apology accepted.||
Just don't let it happen again.
|7 years 15 weeks ago||Loved it.||
I got no more than 20 seconds into that, but seeing them slow motion run to a Grand Am with a car bra made me giddy like a schoolgirl. I have a permanent smile from that.

You're not lying.
