I saw a baby rattlesnake next to the 16th tee (close to where they have the sign)..but I haven't seen anything since
|6 days 4 hours ago||they are funny||
They eat EVERYTHING and quickly...they have moved them about 5 times in a few weeks. Only down side is the "zoo" smell

The whole thing is NON-Linear...your train experiement is Linear. As you go faster, the scale factor changes, it does not stay the same. That is hard for most of us to imagine, but thats the correct way to view this problem

Everything seems kind of what I would expect...except the "glitch" in your first plot where it is more likely to be a 7 year player in the NFL than a 4 year player. I will take a stab at a theory.
Generally speaking, the plot should simply decrease as time goes by (age + injury potential). But at year ~4, some guys "figure out" how to be NFL players and stick another so many years. Those guys who figure it out last until the age/injury curve makes them leave and the curve goes back down. So the glitch is the guys who figure out how to be a professional.
That being said, it might just be monetary or maybe based on contract length!

He fell just short of getting a U of M football scholarship. He didn't want to leave the state for Purdue, Iowa or Minnesota. ...so he went to Western....they wanted him on Defense...he wanted to play RB....he made travel team his freshman year....3rd game of the year is against Michigan at the big house....2001....because he was easily the biggest back....they had him playing FB to simulate Michigan's offense for Western ' s Defense. So the week leading up to the game he did that....well 9-11 happened...they postponed the game....the following week while practicing at FB still he got rolled by an Olineman....snapped 3 of 4 ligaments in his knee...he never recovered and still has knee problems to this day.....FUCK OSAMA BIN LADEN

I generally eat nothing before 7pm.....so I want to see if I eat all food before 7pm if my metabolism changes and of course for the actual religious purpose....for me...this will be difficult
|23 weeks 6 days ago||for me...||
1) Derrick Green - before he got hurt he was running extremely well. I think Harbaugh will rely on him for most games
2) Peppers - I always wanted him at safety because he will be all over the field. Look for 5 or 6 interceptions, 4 sacks, 3 fumble recoveries, 1 punt return for a TD, etc...
3) Moe Ways - I think he is our next great WR. Dude has all the tools to wear #1

Sheez...it's not like it's a tough job or anything..
|27 weeks 4 days ago||zero!||
Google is not a real player in this
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah...this is my living||
wait until you see what we are building at Willow Run at the site of the old B-24 plant (yes I am totally in the loop on all of this including MTF). And by the way, These cars are coming, and coming soon (~5-10 years). Lots of the features are already appearing on current models. Connected cars (i.e. ones that communicate to each other) will make this happen faster. And by the way, it will NOT be Google doing this. Their stuff is baby league compared to the rest of the industry.

He was the man! Faster than sh-t...underrated. ..NFL....that was a great year...I went to PSU And the Rose Bowl....PSU was the greatest of the 100s of games I have attended
|28 weeks 1 day ago||I agree||
I think we show "newness" against Utah and do not win that game on the road...we then get hot and win everything until our Arch rivals...in an epic game, our QB doesn't quite make it happen and we barely lose..... setting up 10-15 years of epic battles between them and us....Harbaugh will make things happen much quicker than anyone thinks....remember Hoke did not leave the cupboard bare!
|28 weeks 5 days ago||In the article about Harbaugh and QBs||
that I posted yesterday (sorry FREEP link)....a former QB at Stanford said that Harbaugh would have another QB coach on the staff...so not surprisingly, Fisch will be the QB coach WITH Harbaugh
|29 weeks 22 hours ago||just a theory...||
What if Bosch had a real problem (e.g. drinking) and he decided to leave the team or maybe even Hoke thought it best he leave the team to work on it....he came back and Harbaugh said fine but this is what I want (e.g. never have a drink)...my point is that maybe it is the personal issue causing this and Harbaugh's stipulations were not what Bosch wanted....just a theory
|29 weeks 3 days ago||Stanford versus SF||
Many seem to be pointing to how JH did at Stanford as a comparison point to us....but I think we are more like when he took over SF....that team had lots of talent.... mediocre at best QB play....strike shortened off season......OH WAIT.....13 WINS!......SERIOUSLY....undefeated going into OSU....then it's game on!

So my sons want to go...Drive to the game early sunday morning... ....Best tailgating at that game? parking?......then go to game... I found a hotel 15 miles away and we stay at that hotel Sunday night, drive back monday morning....any comments? thanks in advance
|34 weeks 12 hours ago||I agree with our AD||
Who by the way was Frickin awesome today....in a year or two when we are in the playoff....no one will deny it was Hoke who brought us those kids....kept them here...and taught them what a Michigan man is....we will look back and credit him for that....making Jim Harbaugh ' s job that much easier!

You had different opinions on what you would want of Brandon if a Harbaugh did get hired by him. That is why I asked the question, because I couldn't decide at first....but when I did decide I would keep him, of course it made me realize I just want to be a winning football school more than anything....

There I said it...I wanted this guy to replace Carr and we hired RR instead....the guy can win and is a michigan man deep down (he always wanted to coach us)....Hell if he came aboard, we'd be in National CHampionship playoffs for years to come....Offer him Saban money and its over....
|43 weeks 1 day ago||But sticking with my point||
(only because it is what I am hoping)....Jim H also saw 2 years ahead and 3 years and even 4 and knew power football was going to be in trouble...and thats just discussing the Oline. No QBs that Jim would want were on the roster either....I know I am dreaming...but damn I don't want to pinch myself!
|43 weeks 1 day ago||I wonder.....||
If Jim actually did not want the job before, because he is a power football coach in college AND he saw what RR had left over. Not a power football loaded team. Maybe Jim knew it would take a few years to transition to what he likes (i.e. power) and it was something he didn't want to deal with.
However, if he looks now, I think he sees a team ready to be a true power football team that can win right away (assuming good QBing which I know Jim would think he could take care of). Maybe I am just talking myself into it....but hey a guy can hope.....
