Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

But make the bumper maize. That would complete it.

Yes, or message their injury updates better. In media reports they sound like they have no idea what they are doing or are using 1950's-style sports medicine.
|1 week 1 day ago||Yep, this is just posturing...||
Kind of pathetic actually.
The NCAA has no integrity.

Everything I had ever read or watched regarding Norfleet even going back to high school indicated he was a high-character leader and widely respected. I didn't care one way or the other about the dancing, but had great confidence in him as a member of the team. Obviously, missing exams indicates otherwise. I just hope this all gets worked out and I can return to having a positive impression of the kid and viewing him as a critical team player. Go Blue.

This was a recent solo trip with my pooch so it is full of sappy dog shots, but it still shows where modern ski touring gear can take you. Best viewed on a large screen for sure.

What you describe is the back of one person, as per normal. But, we get to see the ceiling! Unfortunately not the group as a whole.
This is a legitimate pet-peeve.

Being a sports fan and all I found 1993 a very agreeable year to graduate from the University of Michigan. Living in town for the 1989 Final Four was a good way to kick it off.
So many dramatic moments and almost all positive, this and the damn Rocket being notable exceptions. All-time of games I have attended I can only recall the catch being more instanteously horrific than this travesty.
Also: DAMN those uniforms are sharp. So clean!

Imagine all the home games!

If we are talking OC (which pretty much seems a no-go per OP question), I cannot help but add that San Clemente was the bomb. I hated SoCal (I currently live in a small CO mountain town) but San Clemente for me was far superior to everything else in the region.
Legit surfing culture, nice walkable downtown, the only city where the PCH does not barricade the ocean from town, rolling hills, 12 mile undeveloped beach on southern border, near San Diego, I watched the Trey there, and way cheaper than Laguna/Huntington/all the more busy places to the north (could actually afford a place where I could hear the swells roll in at night).
Hmm...I kind of miss it...no, actually I do not.

Spent a few years in San Clemente but of all the areas travelled to the north always felt like Pasadena had a good vibe and nice to be nearer the mtns.
But, in general, you know: UGH.
|1 week 6 days ago||Well...||
You might as well just go ahead and die then.
Studies show one of the most-shared traits of centenarians is that they haven't discussed or concerned themselves with phrases like "old", "middle-aged", "elderly", etc through life...apparently they just live with what they are absent definition.
The others were lack of envy, tight community bonds, and unfortunately I forget the fourth but it was not food or exercise related.

Florida. You know that is at least a billion dollar mistake for hard-charging thighs a la Lindsey. Their combined net worth would plummet to zero in her mind.

Fuck Michael Rosenberg and the newspaper he represented. RR had arrows coming at him from all corners of the compass.

From what I have read coaching is a major consideration for Jalen. That is why I like our chances; we have the best coach.

OSU, Big Ten Championship, Great Team, Exceptional Team, True Warrior.
That sounds very tricky; injuries would be a huge and undesirable random factor.
Let's keep it at four and continue to respect the regular season.

Is the only small potential positive to creating quarterfinals, but yes, you are right: college football.
I pretty much hate every management decision ever made with this fine sport.

This is niche at best but none in the solar industry have managed this level of viral success.
The real story on solar is that it is now 80% less expensive than five years ago, the panels last essentially forever, and that the industry is in the process of explosive growth on based on economics alone.
It has real enemies, powerful enemies (coal, utilities, gas and oil to a lesser extent), that are now ratcheting up anti-solar propaganda; at these prices they have reason to be afraid.
Cheap solar power can improve your property, fix your cost of energy, and release you from the grip of monopoly. It is fundamentally American and enjoys wide cross-demographic support. Just like every big-ticket product out there, the decision point for solar is not about the price, but the monthly payment. If you can pay off your own energy investment for the same or less per month than what you pay the utility, why wouldn't you?
Solar's growth is now intimately tied to the availabilty of good financing and government's (state government is where the battles are) courage to represent the best interests of the people as opposed to the powerful status quo while making rate design decisions at Public Utility Hearings.

But that is so 2008. Solar is now cheap. Mass deployment is now affordable.

Surely like a black hole for the eyes.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Culture||
As a native Ann Arborite now almost 20 years removed sports talk constantly reminds me how sensitive SE Michigan is over many racial (and sexual for that matter) comments. I say this without judgement/opinion (that would be much longer), but indeed just stating fact.
It is not like this everywhere

One of the reasons South Koreans win at these is they have the fastest internet in the world. Puts us to shame.
They are also psycho plugged-in. Not pretty.

It is going to be huge and it is not pretty. But, you should be aware:

I got the sense he absolutely wanted to come back. This is based on pretty much nothing but I still felt it strongly. What do others think? Was there ever any real indication one way or the other?
