Absolutely. He has a more soothing demeanor, and he no longer makes me worry about whether he's going to say something that might make him sound bad.
6'22" - reminded me of Dubya for a sec... anyone else see it? It's not a terrible thing, because I'm sure Dubya might have made a great football coach.

change is refreshing, i guess, but i'm not a fan. this one sounds whiny. ew.

My computer won't show the embedded picture for some reason, so if anyone else is having that problem, here's the link:

Septembers were always pretty great, and by November I had nothing else to do but keep watching and hope for the magic to come back. Here's to a new beginning, though, and for RR's kids to go out as winners.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||Man, I just looked at the||
Man, I just looked at the list of departing 2012 seniors and got really sad for a minute. I became a Michigan fan right about when the RR era started, and these are the players that have been the face of Michigan football for me. Will be real choked up to see them go.

Just watched his film ... and got really excited because he reminds me of mike hart. Anyone else get that feeling? The kid just doesn't go down after first contact.

Thank you for clarifying. I admit I have no idea why he's delaying the press conference, but based on everything that has been said about him the last week, i.e. he's playing around with the media a la DeAnthony Arnett, it doesn't sound like he's being noble about this whole process. Yeah he's 17 and immature if that's the case, but you didn't see any of our other recruits mess around like this.

i hope recruits will someday realize that this kind of stuff doesn't reflect well on them. but as of now, i also hope he goes blue.

food (new haven only specialties):
burrito lunch carts. way better than chipotle or btb. blasphemy, i know, but you'll see.
east rock area is nice if you want to live closer to town. lots of grad students there if that's what you're looking for. otherwise there are plenty of suburbs around.
avoid hamden, or anywhere along dixwell ave. for that matter
don't think there are many specific sports bars. most standard places just have NESN and YES on all the time, unfortunately, so it'll be harder to watch michigan games if you don't have directv or something.
yale-harvard (the other Game) is nice to check out. nothing like the actual Game, but still worth going at least once for the experience.
other things to do:
not a whole lot, although yale theater is pretty good. toad's gets decent bands to come every once in a while.
climb east rock, maybe?
anyway, good luck, and go blue! (both of them!)

At 1:55 ... what are the linebackers doing? It looks like they're learning how to dance. anyone with football experience know what that is?

David Molk is so good because he played for the 1969 team. Back then his name was Dick Caldarazzo.

I couldn't do that.

Hey guys, I've been on the blog for only a couple months and never figured out what FAKE means in terms of the 40 time. Can someone clarify?
|5 years 23 weeks ago||okay we get it. har||
okay we get it. har har.
this needs to stop.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||Huh. Sounds like a waste of||
Huh. Sounds like a waste of resources. It would probably be easier to get the athletes to have something signed by their profs or TAs every week saying they went to class.
Thanks for the info.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||I wonder how the coaches know||
I wonder how the coaches know whether a player has skipped a class. I thought professors who take attendance just take points off their overall grade rather than report it to the coaches.

Wait... are we eating wolverines, are wolverines eating buckeyes, or are we eating buckeyes?
Antecedents, man. Antecedents.

Stanzi kind of reminds me of Tom Brady. Only not as good.

So does SIAP mean sports illustrated/AP or "sorry if already posted"? Because the only times I see SIAP in a post is when there's a link to an article by the professional media.

He looks like Charles Woodson, but wider.

Believe me, I've tried. I try every day. But there's a thing called addiction that comes in the form of "refresh."
