|1 year 2 weeks ago||We have the announcement||
We have the announcement times, does anyone have the channel(s) or websites that these various kids will be announcing live on? We can take this traveling server crash show on the road. The only one I know off the top of my head is Gary will be on one of the Bristol networks at 1pm.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Let me just post this here as||
Let me just post this here as I posted in the army thread from last night. Read the expanded quotes that this article has from Nauta. He states the advantage that both Alabama and Georgia could bring and refers to Kirby Smart by his full name. He then refers to Harbaugh as Coach Harbaugh. How Michigan will specifically get him ready to play in the NFL, etc. To me the expanded quotes seem to point to him referring to both Georgia and Alabama in generic, distant terms and his references to Michigan seem more personal and familiar. I don't know about the rest of you who may have played football, but for me i was raised to show deference to God, family, and your football coach and sometimes not in that order. To refer to a possible future coach of you by his full name just seems to show his thinking in regards to that option. Whatever, we'll find out in a few hours. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2605908-5-star-isaac-nauta-breaks-down-his-finalists-says-he-knows-where-he-will-commit
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Yeah I know.... Bleacher||
Yeah I know.... Bleacher Report link and all but I think that you need to look at Nauta's expanded quotes from a source less biased than UGA's 247 site. I looked at both articles and the BR one seems show that there might be a chance, especially if you parse out the quotes about each college and their respective coaches. Alabama they win championship and do a good job of developing players...etc. I'm familiar with Kirby Smart, etc.... Coach Harbaugh... To me if those quotes are accurate and the extent of what he says about each college, the quotes seem to show, I don't know, a closeness or level of respect for one school over the others. On a tablet so don't know how to embed a link but here you go: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2605908-5-star-isaac-nauta-breaks-dow.... Whatever we'll find out tomorrow no matter what.

Good catch there. Take a look at that Job Posting timeframe. Job only open a week. They likely already have someone in mind, but have to post the opening to the general public for legal reasons.

Won the PPR 2-QB league by having Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson as my QBs. RBs weren't good (McCoy and Latavius Murray) but they stayed healthy and a late season pickup of Tim Hightower helped. My WRs though are what brought me the title. Julio Jones, AJ Green, Michael Crabtree, and Doug Baldwin. I picked up Baldwin right before his late season explosion. Couple hundred richer now.

Getting after it with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Some tough choices there but||
Some tough choices there but I think that you are on the right path. Only real choice is Mike Evans or Matt Forte at Flex. Highest ceiling, Mike Evans, highest floor, Matt Forte. Good luck!
A different thought might be looking deeper at Deangelo Williams' matchup against Denver. Denver just shut down a sneaky good offense against Oakland, albeit Deangelo Williams is probably a better "play" vs Denver than Latavius Murray was last week.
For everyone else, yeah injuries have been the story this year in fantasy football, especially at RB. My two backs have been ok to good, Latavius Murray and LeShon McCoy, but are currently healthy which is more than I can say for a number of other RBs out there. Thankfully in my 2 QB, 1 PPR, 2 Flex league, my two QBs (Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson) and 4 WRs (Doug Baldwin, Julio Jones, AJ Green, and Michael Crabtree) have carried me into the playoffs.

Drinking with friends and then setting up the World Cup draws in FIFA and try to get USA past the group stage.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Hope these changes work...||
Very long-time reader, occasional poster, and all-too-often lately just a lurker. For the bulk of us who read the site, treading onto the forums and comment sections has been intimidating. Say one thing that goes against the board's group think or have a differing opinion and at best you just get ignored. At worst you pick up a troll or two who call you all sorts of stuff. I hope these changes do bring a more civilized commentary back to the boards, along with a more inviting environment for us lurkers and seldomly seen posters, so that a more diverse discussion on a topic can be seen.

I think the Blacked Eyed Peas said it the best. I Gotta Feeling...
|4 years 17 weeks ago||Same here...||
Same here with my other M shirts and whatnot. Nothing other than the occasional Go Blue. I wear my photobomb T-Shirt twice, UMass and the AWAY game against Purdue, and I doubled the verbal up-votes. Quite a looker Brian Cook must be.

Got a twelve pack of this for the last tailgate and loved it. Never tried it before and found that it was quite good.

I'm in Grand Rapids and I received my signed copy of HTTV and photo bomb tee on about Tuesday of this week.
|4 years 43 weeks ago||Should have kickstarted the 10K fund||
If we were all smarter we should have kickstarted the 10K fund and had Brian show up at a random Michigan event in the Terrell Pryor jersey.
|4 years 43 weeks ago||F--- It||
Still needed a birthday gift for myself and said F--- It! I need myself a photobomb T-shirt and donated $50. I'll definately be wearing that shirt when I hit Michigan Football games from now on.
|4 years 44 weeks ago||David Terrell||
I know he stunk in the pros and hasnt been a great citizen off the field either but what about David Terrell. His 2000 season was nuts. 13TDs?
|4 years 51 weeks ago||Great Idea||
Definately a tremendous idea and yes I'd say that the inaugural class should be larger this first year. I also agree that this MgoHOF should admit specific teams, administrators, etc in some way, shape, or form. I do also like the idea of admitting one non-revenue sport person a year too. The problem with this is that the blog at large doesnt know the merits of a gymnast, field hockey, or whatever player. I know we do have some posters that specifically follow some of these sports, perhaps this would be a way to tap into their expertise on this all and have them present such and such person's case and go from there. Kind of like how the NFL HOF admits senior candidates. Lastly this whole process would be a great way to bridge that summer gap between the end of basketball and hockey to the begining of fall football practice. Definately would go great in the months of May-July or so.

Saw it too and all I could think was dont let this be a Dewey Beats Truman kind of deal.

D. Notre Dame
E. Southern Cal
|5 years 28 weeks ago||Agreed||
Agreed. I wonder what Phil Coke's stats are with inherited base runners. It seems like every other outing he comes in and gives up a base hit or a walk.

Drinking a La Fin Du Monde, watching the Tigers, and will start to play some Starcraft II.

Isnt the link on the left-hand side, Sour Salty Bitter Sweet underneath MGoElsewhere? Not sure but the link has always seemed out of place to me but now it makes sense.
|5 years 38 weeks ago||Contact Home Insurance First||
If you already haven't done so, contact your home insurance provider. We just had the same issue in our basement here in Grand Rapids, and our insurance agent (AAA) put us in touch with Arrow Restoration, a local home restoration place here. They said the minute the floors got hit (we had wood laminate flooring) those had to go due to moisture getting underneath and mold growth. The walls and ceiling (both drywall) were ok as my wife and I were able to affect cleanup immediately once the flooding started (our flooding was from a broken pipe). They did perform some general cleanup and antimicrobial cleanup on the drywall and that is still in good shape. They are in the process of replacing the floor this week. Insurance is covering the bulk of this all with only us chipping in our deductible.

You sir win zombie kill of the week for me. Had to make a rare login and even rarer post to say this. Thank you for making this Saturday night even better.
