In WI and had to work all day, so couldn't watch the game live. But stopped by the bar afterwards and celebrated the only way a reasonable person can in these parts...
Several Spotted Cows and a side of cheese curds!
Go Blue...and keep it rolling on Sunday

Of course, Johnnie Walker BLUE is still my go-to drink on celebratory evenings such as this...
|1 week 6 days ago||Spotted Cow||
Live in Wisconsin these days, and having Spotted Cow available on tap everywhere is one of the few redeeming qualities about my current living situation.

Johnnie Walker BLUE...
On the rocks...
Always go with blue!
|9 weeks 3 days ago||No Such Thing||
Having made the leap from a C-130 about 25 times many years ago...I can tell you that there really is no such thing as a "perfectly good airplane" in the USAF inventory.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Go Army!||
As a USMA graduate...I would be pretty happy to see him go.

Doesn't worry me a bit considering all the experience and depth we have returning on the O-Line.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Yep...||
Now that's the epitome of a harbaufense
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Good to Know||
Good to know that coach, while he certainly marches to the beat of his own drum, is pragmatic enough to understand what truly motivates the young men in his charge.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Hhmmm||
Maybe coach can bring some of the latter over to the practice field for additional motivation. Put them on the other end of the field and see if we can shave a few tenths off of our sprint times. Winners get to sprint back to the other end where another batch awaits.

Last working day of the week for me. Going to relax/celebrate with a few fingers of Johnnie Walker Blue while watching the game and (hopefully) read a new Hello post tonight.
Merry X-Mas everyone
|13 weeks 2 days ago||When...||
Someone on the board let me know when the actual bowl games worth watching begin
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Ditto||
I was wondering the same thing. Even if Grandma was at the tail end of her softball career when she was an Olympian...that would put her in her mid-fifties on the high end. Definitely quite young to have a grand daughter about to embark on her college days. Nevertheless, she appears to come from great stock. Welcome and Go Blue!
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Tufele||
I'd like to think Tufele isn't quite in longshot territory. Not saying he is a sure thing...but I'm feeling better about him than the others on the list
|21 weeks 3 days ago||A Little Bit||
Don't completely disagree...but also think it is a good problem to have and somewhat of a necessity. We have a ton of attrition due to graduation on both lines as it is this year. Depending on the haul, you can assume a 'somewhat' even split of early contributors and some developmental projects to smooth the distribution between classes. There will assuredly be some attrition, but the cream will have risen to the top, and future OL/DL recruiting will proceed without insanely high numbers in subsequent years.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Still Early||
Not a bad list at all...and I'd take it anyway day. However, I think last year will be more the norm moving forward (depending on how possible early singing periods shake out) in that there are likely numerous guys not currently on the radar that will emerge as we get closer to signing day and 'the board' will look at lot different in Feb than it does today.

I believe M. Bennett is an UFA after this upcoming season...so sliding Butt in next to Gronk may make a lot of sense.
|50 weeks 5 days ago||Position Preference||
When he was first offered, I seem to recall the talk being that he was best suited as an interior lineman. Has there been any tidbits on which side fo thr LOS the coaches envision startin him out?
|50 weeks 6 days ago||Malzone's Hand||
Malzone's Hand looked pretty dinged up...anyone heard an official diagnosis yet?

As the only time they'll be worn is during a shitty time slot for the NIT. We'll undoubtedly lose badly, and I won't have the stomach to watch the DVR. As the saying goes...if no-one sees it it never actually happened.
Now...if the jumpman gear can somehow help the team pull it's collective head out of it's ass next year, we'll be on to something!
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Ugly||
Just plain ugly
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Agree||
I agree that a lot of what makes 'good defense' is the want to factor, and that coaching the finer points won't cure that. However, coaches need to demand that effort and hold the players accountable on that end of the floor. Doesn't seem like this has ever been a JB proiorty, and I don't see Jordan or Alexander placing much of an emphasis on it either.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Defense||
Need somebody on the staff who knows how to coach defense. Head man, assistant, whatever. If Lavalle can find that...may be a viable option, but after watching this team the last couple of months (and generally throughout the JB tenure, despite the success we enjoyed for a couple of years) somebody new needs to be brought in.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Team Recruiting Effort?||
Was Harbaugh the lead on this one all along...or were Drevno/Fisch deeply involved as well?
