Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes

Rio Grande with El Dorado.
Rio Grande is also one of my favorites, is black and white and has Maureen O'Hara as John Wayne's wife.
|3 days 5 hours ago||I agree with the OP||
Tin Star was a great movie.
A couple that come to my mind: The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence starring John Wayne, James Stewart and Lee Marvin and
How the West Was Won starring just about everyone.
|3 days 5 hours ago||To generate interest||
you could conduct a poll for the readership to vote who they think will win at the end of the year and publish the results.
Each person picking the actual winner could be awarded, say, 1,000 MGoPoints (or less if you don't think the blog could afford it).
|3 days 6 hours ago||My only reservation about the series||
is that since it is a competition you all should come up with some kind of objective measure to determine the winner.
The only thing I can think of is assign a point value for players that make All-American (1st team so many points, 2nd team a few less point, etc) and All-Big Ten (fewer than All-American, but also with descending points for 1st team, 2nd team, etc.). Each position is accounted for and get you points as opposed to other systems that only skill position players really matter.
Yeah I know it's not totally objective as it is assigning arbitrary number points to specific award that is a result of a vote, but I think it would be an improvement. I mentioned this last year.

I also agree that Jr Henson was better than any year that Tom Brady had at Michigan.
While Brady was very good at Michigan (All Big Ten honorable mention twice), I've often wondered here on the blog if a lot of people's memories of Tom Brady at Michigan aren't clouded by NFL Tom Brady.
|5 days 4 hours ago||When your most recent data||
When your most recent data point is 12 years and 2 coaching staffs removed from the current situation, then you probably don't have a relevant data set.
Looking at what Harbaugh did at Stanford with 1st time starters might be a little more relevant, but probably not by much.
Looking at just the QB position misses so much. I think the season is going to come down to how well the offense "gels" (offensive line, really) and injuries, or the lack thereof. Two games on the schedule are likely going to determine the coming season.
|1 week 5 days ago||My preference is||
either "Urban Meyer" or "OSU Coach Meyer," or whatever, not "Urbs," "Urbz," or any other stupid, lazy permutation.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Pam Ward did not get her job because of her brains.||
She got it because of her beauty.
She's serious eye-candy.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Well, at least||
your hair is perfect.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||You worry too much.||
Michigan, the winningest program in college football, already has a target on their back. Michigan has been and always will get every team's best shot. These quotes and things by Harbaugh change absolutely nothing.
Except perhaps to give our own team a little added confidence and swagger. Teams tend to be a reflection of their coach.

Probably Googling for Dicks too much. Clear your search history and you should be good.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I'll preface by saying I know little about soccer rules.||
I was trying to introduce as little as possible in the way of new rules or affecting the outcome of the game (which the refs tend to want to avoid) while discouraging the undesired player behavior. I assume that an injured player could be substituted, and thus treating a player acting like he was seriously injured would be a reasonable response.
In short, if a player feigns serious injury, the ref is totally justified in feigning serious concern for the player's health by benching him. I don't like Brian's yellow card idea as it requires a ref to make the decision that a player is faking. The beauty of my solution is that the ref "believes" the player's act and accordingly takes responsible action to ensure the "protection" of that player.
Are there temporary 5-minute penalties in soccer, and do players come back on the field like they do in hockey, while play is going on?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Number 7 - faking injuries.||
For the "protection" of that "injured" player, a substitution should be required and the "injured" player should be forced to sit out the rest of the game.
No penalties have been given and the game continues with the same # of players on the field. All that player faking an injury accomplished is removing himself from the field. Only has himself to blame by being so convincing.
The referee's judgement can't really be questioned - the player faked an injury, and it was believed.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Excellent||
Just my opinion, but I think this should be front-paged.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, but||
I don't wanna see their junk.

He offered lunch, but let him go to the French Laundry with York's wife for dinner!
Shoulda taken York to Burger King.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||So is the handling of the data.||
With a sample size = number of counties, probably 1,000 to 1,500 rural counties did not have a single voter.
But they did not leave any counties blank, so what they must have done was assign the same team as its closest neighboring county that did have at least 1 voter.
Hence why there seems to be large swaths of USC fans in Western Texas, and Stanford fans in the Dakotas. Both probably represent 1 single vote within a sea of counties that had no votes.
Dumb map is dumb.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Way too small of a sample||
Way too small of a sample size in the poll compared to the number of counties in the country leads to a map that is dumb.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Does this mean that Magnus||
now has unlimited ball touches?
Congrats either way Magnus, you have put in a ton of effort on recruiting over the years and have definitely earned this.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I agree with you about||
The Crying Game and felt the exact same way about American Beauty.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I wasn't aware that the Lions||
I wasn't aware that the Lions had a meaningful win in the last 50 years.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||A lot of cool stuff mentioned here.||
All I have are my MGoPoints :(
|9 weeks 2 hours ago||I would think pretty high...||
perhaps we should send lawyers, guns and money to find out.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah, probably shouldn't post this but what the hell.||
Back when I was in grad school I was forced to watch this cartoon a couple of Sunday nights. It was terrible, and I couldn't undrstand its appeal to the undergrads that thought it was so good. It think it was called The Simpsons.
After a series of disappointments and total waste of money paying for movies, the last movie I saw in a movie theater was Waterworld. That movie just ended it for me. Later acclaimed movies like American Beauty (with a surprise ending just as "surprising" as The Crying Game, neither of which nobody refers to as classics, nor anyone even bothers to watch) just confirmed my opinion.
GoT? GTA? I have no idea.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||John Chaney||
was coach of Temple, which was not in the Big East. Rollie Massimino of Villanova was, with players like Ed Pinkney and John "the Bear" Pinone.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Probably because||
nobody knew that Rutgers had a fan.
I'm from New Jersey and I've never met one.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, I was just old enough to understand||
what that was all about, and heard about it but I don't think I ever saw it until a few years ago. I know there were a couple of other incredible incidents on The Newlywed Show, Dating Game, etc. from that era.
Mad Hatter had just a slightly different impression of "uncomfortable" than I had, and the YouTube clip fits right in with his sense of humor.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I'm not sure if you got the answer right...||
I'll let you decide:
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I really can't fault Melton,||
if I had an uncomfortable offer from Jim Harbaugh, I'd commit to Rutgers too.
