|2 weeks 1 day ago||Tough question||
This is a tough question. While I agree that being a Wings goalie, Lions QB, Tigers closer, and Pistons PG all top the list the real question comes down to money and expectations from the fanbase.
Michigan is a blue coller state with a lot of hard working people. The vast majority of those people have put food on the table by working for the automotive industry. Those blue coller types dont shy away from giving opinions when highly paid athletes don't pull their weight no matter the position
The more money you make the bigger target no matter the position.

I was living in Stuttgart Germany for 3 months and wanted to take the family around the countryside and some other boardering countries for weekend trips. I often use kayak.com for the best deals in Europe and it always does me well.
We had my 1 year old daughter and generally carry quite a bit of luggage so we were looking for an SUV, wagon or full size. I put the length of rental as 60 days. All the normal prices kept cycling through besides one.
It had a full sized wagon for a total price of 200 euro for 60 days. It was a little more than $3 a day. I imagined i'd get the biggest piece of crap but for 200 euro it was worth a shot. I arrived at the rental agency who tried telling me the cost was 2000 euro but I had the quote from online printed out and in my email. It took me an hour of arguing with customer service but they had to stick with their quote. Finally after round and round arguing they blinked losing the battle and gave me a manual Peugeot wagon. I'd never driven one before but I was pleasantly surprised when I got out on the open road. It had every bit of power and speed of any luxury wagon I've ever driven (Benz, Audi, VW etc). That thing hauled ass.
I basically got the car for $3 day but by the time I got done paying over $1000 in camera speeding fines from inside Germany and between Fance, Switzerland and Belgium it more than compensated for my good luck.
Life evens out in the end

You won't be disappointed that you rented a car. I've traveled Europe extensively via planes, trains and automobiles. Italy is one the best countries to skip the trains and drive it. You see the country so much better in a car stopping in little towns etc.
You won't be disappointed.

I'm sure 300's are nice cars since they're a complete ripoff of a Bentley but in my experience the drivers tend to be real douches. I think they actually one Car and Drivers douchiest car several years in a row.

For a plan C the kid looks like he can make all of the throws. Seems like a legit talent. I'm surprised he doesn't have a deeper offer list with decent football programs.

If MLB ends up changing the rules where as the team that gives up the most runs essentially wins the game Pelfrey would be a Cy Young winner every year. He has the golden arm of giving up runs.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||6-7 years!!||
I love Michigan and the connection to Brady. No matter what NCAA football team ever says about putting players into the NFL we always have the GOAT trump ready to be thrown out.
but.. 6-7 years? I don't ever want to see Brady go through the struggles that once great players go through when they've went too far trying to prolong a career. Not only that but all it takes is one big hit. No matter what he's doing to stay in shape and diet etc his body just can't repair itself like it used to.
I like what they did getting him Cooks but they better continue to "build him a f'ing wall" and keep him clean.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Goodluck||
Best of luck to the kid but not many RB's play at 240lb+ these days. It seems like he's running away from competition which is exactly what Harbaugh liked to weed out. You want to prove you're a RB in this proogram? Beat out your competition.
I'll be curious to see where he lands.

|5 weeks 2 days ago||NO but YES!!!||
I'm just so happy to be on the cusp of him not coaching the Wings anymore! Once that happens I'll calm down from his stupidity of continuing to play a forward who hasn't scored a goal (which is now a record) in over 70 games amoungst other things.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||This sucks||
This whole situation is BS. He came willingly to speak with police then when he says he may have pushed her off of him thereby touching her neck he's arrested? I'm not saying it because he's a Michigan player but it sounds like he was trying to get the F out of there and she didn't want to let it happen because she's crazy.
The man fell asleep with the lights on so you wake him up to start a fight? What a friggin psycho.

|5 weeks 4 days ago||SC||
Im glad SC beat Duke because I never really got over how they handled us in the beginning of the year. SC beat us badly and made it look like M couldnt play ball.
I mean that and its always fun to see Duke fall.
Come on down Mo Bamba!

I was cracking up the last time you guys did a thread with the Red Lobster biscuits. Remembering the good old days when Red Lobster was actually good.
Was it even good or were we too poor or I was too young?

Being hungover never makes it ok to click on a thread with the word soccer in it.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Not worried about QB but the OL||
Honestly I love the fact that Coach Harbaugh isn't just handing things over to Speight because he has some experience from last season. My concern going forward hinges more on the OL. We're going to be very young on the OL and I'm still not sure what we actually have there yet.
How will that OL hold up @ Happy Valley, @ Wisconsin and against Ohio? No matter what Speight's ceiling for a QB is, many times last year he stepped up into the pocket when he should have been sacked giving the OL a free pass on a F up.
