|1 day 8 hours ago||I must be the highly impressionable type...||
Immediatly after watching this video I got into a pool noodle sword fight with my kids.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Well said||
That has always been my feeling towards pro sports. I look too see which teams have former Michigan players and root for those teams. Maybe it has sometging to do with living on Michigan in the 80s and Cincinnati in the 90s.

I would love to see Harbaugh hang a pictute of him and the Pope holding a Michigan helmet.

I lived in England for 3 years. Changed my perspective on many things.

The wife and I both have the day off work, my 8 year old and my 6 year old share a birthday, and Kings Island opens today. Going to be a fun one. Bang away.

What really bothers me is that the NCAA has set up a system where it helps to cheat. NC has a scandal and nothing happens. Thry win the national championship. Louisville recruits illegally, sure someone gets in trouble but no one important, and they have a national championship. Alabama cheats and some guy way down the line gets let go but the school have seval national championships. OSU essentially pays players, and except for the one year, is excelling.

I have four kids. The first time was very worrying as everything was new. The other three were not too bad because I knew what was about to happen. Pack a bag. Write a check list before you leave to make sure you have everything. At the hospital you are just there for support. See if she needs anything. If she does, help her. If not, just hang out.

Kings Island is pretty awsome. My kids are finally tall enough to ride the really fun roller coasters and water slides.

Woooooooooooooo. As I write this I am still pacing behind my couch. I started with 3 minutes to go in the second quarter.

Walton has 8 assists and it is not even at the half yet.
|10 weeks 2 hours ago||Some interesting ideas out there||
Personally, I would like to see someone attach a novelty hand to a headband, a ttatch a basketball to it, and dunk the ball by putting their head next to the rim.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Teske block||
I love the Teske block given the larger context of the play. After the block, Michigan got a quick three point bucket. On the next Indiana possesition, one of the players went to drive to the basket, thought better of it, then passed to a player who missed. Michigan rebound.

I was wondering if it was just me. I was holding a fussy baby trying to get him to go to sleep, and I had the volume on low. Could not understand a word of what was being said.

That is so much better than they were a few years ago.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||I think you also have to||
I think you also have to consider how many times Gary was a step behind one of the other D linemen who got the sack, or funneled a QB or RB to someone else who got the stat. Then there was all of those times Gary stretched a running play to the sideline for a no gain or a gain on 1 when a lesser player would have given up 5 or 6 yards. For a freshman playing with the rest of the nfl caliber d line I thought he did great, and only someone who quantifies plays by stats alone would think he did not have a great first year.

Sign idea for anyone going, "Kalamazoo, home to the second best team in Michigan."

My guess is that if they get the 2 point conversion, an on side kick run back wins the game
|27 weeks 6 days ago||Chain gang||
You can see the video after clicking the link at the bottom of the op post.
While I am sure I will get the terminology wrong, the chain gang is the three guys who mark the 10 yards from where the ball is on first down to 10 yards from there, connected by a chain. The thing they bring out to measure if the ball is close to a first down. Harbaugh was shown with the spot of the ball / down marker.
Pretty smart, he gets to be right on the sidelines with the players, though I am not sure if he would have been able to do that anyway
|29 weeks 3 days ago||Crowd noise is wonderful||
I love the volume levels of the crowd during the play. They are loud at the beginning of the play and then it seems over half are silent as the ball is in the air only to erupt after the interception is made.

I stood in front of my tv for the entire 4th quarter.

My guess was he was making a poorly framed history joke about how in Roman times Christians were fed to the lions for the amusement of those in the colosseum. You know, because his team was going to devour the helpless opposition.

Could be wrong but there is a possibility that she was talking about it with someone at school, and that person responded along the lines of "Do you know what would be funny, you should root for Michigan's rival just to see what he does." Kids like to push boundaries. If she thinks it's a big deal to you it may entrench her deeper. There are probably some mixed feelings for you at this point, so just have fun with it and remember that the feelings of a young girl are more important that sports rooting interests.

Has how well Jabrill Pepers has been playing at his new defensive position encouraged any high level recruits to take a more serious look at Michigan, someone who could effectively play that roll when Peppers is taken in the first round of the draft.
