|5 weeks 4 days ago||WTF?!?!||
WTF Society?!!? People are so fucked up. NO way this is a coincidence of some sort.
The increasing amount of insane people on this planet becomes more disturbing every day.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||You can rule it out.||
He won every national player of the year award, all conference, everything unanimously and consensusly. It's ridiculous. Noone has ever won all those awards and then came back if they had eligibility left (maybe Duncan but I don't think he even won that many)
All this combined with weak draft class, the fact he barely came back last year... he's gone. Just start convincing yourself of this now and it will be easier.
Nothing is ever 100% but come on.
Not trying to be a dick. Just trying to help.
As a silver lining, Walton is very good and Spike showed he's ready to lead the team in many ways as well.
If Hardaway leaves, Irvin is ready to contribute already.
Let's just hope Mitch and Grob III realize it's best to get one more year of seasoning in. Losing either of them would be biggest unforeseen blow.
To more great memories...
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Same bar||
Can't really afford to go out, but I have no choice. Same bar I've been at for VCU, Kansas, Syracuse. Same bar I drunkenly offered $300 to open up for my group on Easter Sunday after THE TREY. (They declined, and they're lucky it didn't jinx us)
I have no choice. My wife understands and supports this. I must drink Captain and Coke with a lime and a splash of grenadine, then start two fisting with that and spotted cow for halftime. Then 2nd half is all spotted cow. I'm not quitting smoking until after tonight because this team needs me to step out of that same bar and have a smoke at halftime. Just like VCU/Kansas/Cuse.
I WILL NOT LET THE TEAM OR ANY OF YOU DOWN!!!

|7 weeks 4 days ago||Awesome thread.||
Loved reading everyone's experiences.
I had gone to the same bar that I had randomly and accidentally ended up at for the VCU game. After that performance I had to go back for the Kansas game. So my bro and 2 buddies met me there (same group from vcu game, I mean, come one, we can't screw this up).
Except friday nights it turns out they play country music at this bar, and I could not talk the bartender into putting the sound for the game on like it was the previous saturday.
Debated leaving, but alas decided to stay. Had gotten a pretty good "end of season" drunk on by the last couple minutes. Told bartender to bring my last beer and close out my tab. Signed my tab, started slamming beer as Kansas missed free throw with 12 secs left. Stopped slamming beer, and exclaimed out loud for whole bar to hear "I know you are going to take a 30 foot step back jumper Trey, and fergodsakes you better hit it!!!".... When it went in all I could do was yell OOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH as I walked around bar in circles with my hands over my head in disbelief. Being that I'm in milwaukee at a country western bar most people just stared at me awkwardly and laughed. My boys were all going crazy with me (and they're not even M fans, which is awesome)
After the game had ended I exclaimed in inexplicable joy that I would buy a round for the whole bar. Thankfully, our waitress didn't hear me. My buddies, knowing I was drunk on liquor and euphoria, quickly got me out of the bar before I could attempt to buy the whole place a drink again. (Apparently I was trying to) - but not before I offered the owner of the bar $300 to open up for us on Easter sunday to watch the game. They said no. This was a mistake on their part.
After that it gets cloudy but the next morning I had losing tickets from gambling on grehounds and australian chariot racing at the local indian casino.(Um, what?!?!?) My buddies tell me I had quite the time at the casino. When they expect me to thank them for not letting me buy the bar a round, I quickly do the math and figure that would have been better off than dragging my drunk euphoric ass to the casino. Ah well, it was all worth it!!!
I'll remember this team forever no matter how it ends up. Here's to that being with the team hoisting a trophy on Monday!

if that could happen then they would probably give it to us too.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||I have a son||
I have a son. He is nearing 10 months old. His right kidney is a pelvic kidney and it is a Multi-Cystic Dysplastic kidney (basically his right kidney is in his pelvis instead of up higher in the back, and it doesn't work because it just has cysts filled with fluid in it instead of working kidney tissue). You only need 1 kidney to live, and his left kidney is fully functional. Since his left kidney does all the work it is enlarged, and therefore, more sucseptible to injury.
Roughly 10 seconds after the diagnosis the first question i ask, naturally, "What does this mean for his sports career?", trying to make it like I was being a little funny but my wife and the doc both knew it was a serious inquiry.
The doc basically said he should be able to live a normal life but should probably not ride motorcycles or do jousting or anything with a high probability of blunt forced trauma. All sports should be fine, and we'll continue to monitor everything as he grows up.
The first thing I say is "Well, then he shouldn't play football, right?".
Doc looks me square in the eye and says "If you're not going to let him play football, it's because of head injuries, not his kidneys."
This absolutely floored me. My son has 1 working kidney, more likely to be injured because it is enlarged from doing all the work, and if it IS injured could cause my son to need a transplant, go through dialysis, crazy procedures, possibly ending fatally... and the doctor is still saying that head injuries would be more of a concern from playing football.
I love sports, including football. Played every sport I could growing up. Football, basketball and baseball in high school and low level college basketball. Wasn't really good at football, and never really played much. If I could go back it's the one sport I wouldn't have played in high school. I was always entering the basketball season hurt and not in the right shape.
But I am a huge sports fan. I look forward to watching many more Michigan games with my son. I can't wait for his first trip to the Big House. Growing up in this family he will be around all sports, including football. And I'm somewhat scared to death of the decision I'll be faced with if he wants to play football.
I don't want to rob him of any activity that brings him joy. I don't want to teach him to live life scared. I don't know. I guess my plan as of now is not to shield him from football, but to try and have a baseball, mitt, basketball, golf club and whatever else in his hands early and often.
But if he comes to me asking to play football, I honestly don't know what I'll do. Hopefully the game is safer by then. At least i have a little time to figure it out.

38 - 16 Blue.
241 rushing yards.
|32 weeks 19 hours ago||Though||
Though I'm no scout to be sure, I'm not worried about ANYTHING in Stauskas' offensive game. Potential defensive liabilities will be the only thing keeping him from pushing for more playing time at the 1, 2 or 3 positions. IMHO of course - super excited for this kid.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||so||
So Ohio has really helped us by giving our 2 major competitiors for the division each a loss. Many thanks Ohio!
Now just take care of our own business.
I said after the game Sat agasint Purdue that the only team that scares me is Neb. Then after watching Neb Ohio game at night I couldn't decide whether both O's were that good or both D's were that bad. I'm leaning towards D's that bad, which is encouraging.
Our D is good and only getting better.
The entire season comes down to Denard not making mind-blowingly head-asplode decisions - specifically in the MSU and Neb games.

Nice try Tom, but that will only work once in your career.

hey sorry is anyone else's background behind the writing blue now instead of white?
Ummmm, Hoke Uberalles or something just so I can type something relevant to topic. Kind of a weird thing that "gamblers" come up in a press conference. Uh, yes Mr. Hoke, if you could just email me that full injury report at least 20 minutes prior to kickoff I'd appreciate it kthnxbai.

basically agree with you it also must be said that generally, a child is the product of his/her environment. Of course, this is not 100% and that is why I agree with your sentiments.

This year I'm blowing up my team and couldn't think of anything (Although I'm going to have stafford, which should offer some good staff references) so I quickly picked:
50 Shades of Graf (my last name which happens to be close to "Gray")
There's been some funny ones suggested here, that's for sure.

Damn, I was going to do this for all 18 of your posts but I'm already bored.

|41 weeks 3 days ago||V Smith||
I'm kinda surprised no one has mentioned Vincent Smith. Hard worker, toughest guy pound for pound, stuck around after RR left despite high chance of decreased playing time, etc.
If I was picking it'd be really tough to pick 2-4 guys from the following 6...
Denard, Smith, Tree, Kovacs, Demens, Lewan
Edit: Totally forgot Roh - who deserves it as much as anyone (Save for maybe Denard and Kovacs) - I'm glad I don't have to figure this out. How does it work? Do players vote? I remember being voted as captain of bball team Sr year in high school, and it was a huge honor. If I was a captain for a M football team, that would be unfathomable.
|1 year 5 days ago||Damn||
I love this horse
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Yeah||
you are totally right - i was confused.
Rags had a tough trip again.
I hit a real nice score on I'll Have Another - it was one hell of a derby day that I barely remember
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Can't even||
Can't even imagine going to the Derby. That would be amazing. I was there as a kid but not for live races.
Only track I've been to for live races is Arlington Park - it was awesome, but nothing like a big race, much less the derby.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||You||
can't really go wrong with Bodemeister. I'm not a speed figure handicapper but anyone who is should be on Bode no doubt. He kinda came on the scene this year and caught everyone off guard with those huge Beyer figures he's been throwing up.
I have a rule that I don't take favorites, so he's out for me, but I would not be one bit surprised if he held on to win. He's lightly raced but Baffert trains hard and will have him ready. Will hurt him a little bit that he's inside of the other early speed horses (Hansen and Trinniberg) but he seems like he's plenty good enough to overcome that.
I agree with you on Rags as far as what he's shown this year - I'm hoping Pletcher has been gearing him up for his best race to be this one. I have a feeling he wasn't being pushed for his all in the FL derby. But a horse can only have so many "excuses" until he's just not as good a horse as originally thought. I may be a bit sentimental with Rags since I've liked him for a while. Hopefully that doesn't bite me too hard on Saturday.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||I hope||
I hope I get to see a Triple Crown winner in my lifetime. I was born in '79 a year after Affirmed last did it.
I only bet the Triple Crown races and the Breeder's Cup Classic. I just don't have money or time to follow it all year round.
I sure love this time of year and the build up to the Derby though.
