That is all
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Awesome, confirmed on my||
Awesome, confirmed on my Craig's List iPhone Ap... Love it.
Let us know how many offers you get...
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Not a bad pitch...||
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Get XM and away from 'the fan'||
I left that station about the time Herbstriet left... good riddence.
Go Blue! This night, 1989 I watched the party from the roof of Ulrich's book store... Hope there are some like-minded, and non-couch-burning students ready to party tonight!

Grammar... I find it mind bottling the emphasis here...
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I kind of prefer the underdog role...||
I wish all of these people would stop trying to make us the favorite.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||The more they win, the more likely players will leave...||
If this team beats Kansas and makes a run to the Final Four or Final game, there will be a much higher chance THJr and GRIII leave... If we should lose to Kansas, I am much less concerned about those two leaving.
I don't see Trey coming back, as much as I would love to have him return...
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Ironic that MN's win led to Howland's firing...||
If UCLA fired Howland because of the embarrassing loss to MN, in hopes of getting Shaka Smart to replace him... Then when MN loses, they fire their coach in hopes of getting Shaka Smart...
Shaka must have an awesome agent calling AD's as their teams get bumped from the tournament...
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Points for the use of "practicable" in a sentence!||
It is not often practicable, to use 'practicable' in a sentence, especially not more than once.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Do they realize they also have to scalp tickets to get in?||
Michigan's two game pack Thursday night is a separate ticket package from the daytime double-header... I am guessing they will all end up walking around the casino's in their new duds... If they do drop more cash to get in, that is really awesome...
|9 weeks 3 days ago||What he said...||
I agree, and JB is the best coach I know at resetting focus and mental state...
I also cannot imagine we will overlook PSU again. Payback time.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||I moved to Columbus after graduating UM in 1991...||
After growing up in Cadillac MI and going to UM for 5 football seasons I moved to Columbus to work for IBM... 22 years ago now and it has been a great place to live and to raise a family. You really can't go wrong with any of the communities North of the I-270 outerbelt. I have lived in Dublin for 12 years now, and 3 other areas before that.
The only detractors are the occasional packs of buckeyes (clusters?), but I think I get more grief from Staee fans overall. If we would beat both schools down over the next few years that won't be a big deal.
Having a big university in a good sized city helps add flavor with pretty much every band playing here and decent cultural opportunities.
We have good friends that moved from Dublin to Yorba Linda and missed Ohio... They got over it then moved to Syracuse (ouch!)
I would tell you to go for it. Certainly don't let the location drive the decision, you can be very happy here and not go crazy.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||That, and Vogrich seems to have forgotten how to play BBall...||
I thought with normal progression that Vogrich would be a pretty solid contributor this year. He was strong off the bench last year and played much more aggressively than his first two... He just seems lost out there this year... Maybe he will sort it out in time to help in the BIG run...
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Does anyone else picture "Giant Skipper" and Gilligan?||
Just saying... although two 6'10" bookend tackles could make for an interesting pocket to pass from...
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Kentucky is already loaded with 5 studs||
3 top 5 or something crazy like that...
|33 weeks 4 days ago||He forgot the 'THE'||
THE University of Ohio State
|37 weeks 5 days ago||Yes||
We expect everything. Good and bad, it will all happen Saturday and I can't wait.
I do believe both teams will benefit greatly through the rest of the season for having gotten ready for this game.
I have a bet with one of our VP's down South, and I took the bet straight up. Any money I would put on the game would gladly take the 13 or 14 points as I really don't see that big of a spread even if 'Bama were to win.
I don't have time to answer all of your questions, but if you have been around since May, you likely knew the answer to most and the rest were rhetorical anyway...
We'll see on Saturday. Go Blue!
|39 weeks 2 days ago||Or MSU for that matter...||
I don't see either of those getting it done.
|41 weeks 4 days ago||Fullback and Tight End are key...||
Best way to create space and time for Denard, which is when he is most deadly, is to spread the ball and force the D to cover everyone...
We have gotten away from using the TE and FB as receivers, though when we have gone to them they are almost always open...
There are plays that will be virtually unstopable using TE and FB because of the threat Denard brings...
I am very optimistic and excited to see what Mr. Borges does now that he really knows what he has and the team knows what he wants.
|41 weeks 4 days ago||TWHS?||
Ahhhh... My wife loves these "That's What HE Said" jokes...
|42 weeks 2 hours ago||Looks like a little extra help from the spotter...||
I am guessing with the spotter help and the bounce from his chest mattress... He is only really lifting about 590... pussy.
|43 weeks 3 days ago||Great one...||
Physics has several methods of differentiating the two... one key concept has to do with an item at rest...
|45 weeks 19 min ago||My wife and I love Columbus...||
She was from Atlanta when we met, and always said she wanted to get back there... but after a few years she said she just wanted to be able to visit Atlanta now and then...
20 years together now in Dublin, just outside Columbus. Great city, great community and excellent schools.
I grew up in Cadillac and went to UM from '86 - '90 and have lived down here ever since. The Buckeye fans get obnoxious in numbers, but are generally good Americans...
Jody's house is in my neighborhood and he and his wife are very nice. Hard to believe he was the enforcer for the blue jackets, he seems so cool and relaxed.
I'm on Higgins Lake this week, and Ohio does not have anything like it, that is for sure... Probably what I miss most about Michigan are the lakes and rivers...
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Nicky Sualua...||
I had the pleasure of playing on a city league touch football team with Nicky his last year when he was academically ineligible (architecture major????) He joined our team because he was "in training" for the combines.
His routine was to sit in the car with his trainer and smoke pot for half an hour before each game. He was a gifted athlete with great hands and amazing skill for someone his size. He was my height and a hundred pounds heavier... But moved quite well...
The similarity I see is a pattern of bad decisions, and a linkage of pot and questionable work ethic. Nicki ended up drafted by the Cowboys and was their starting fullback for half of his rookie year... then he was the guy with Mark Tuinei when he died (http://archives.starbulletin.com/1999/05/11/sports/index.html)
It is certainly a stretch to equate the two, but at some point making bad decisions is rooted in a lack of ability to make good decisions. For people on the ledge, drugs seem to gently push them off in far too many cases...
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Any chance Brundidge rethinks his departure?||
Or was he just not going to be the guy?
Never can tell how hard the coaches tried to keep a kid, could be the scholarships are too valuable to talk anyone into staying.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||All I can say is I watched it all unfold...||
from the roof of Ulrich's book store...
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Taco is also a solid power forward...||
... any chance he plays a little BBall?
|1 year 21 weeks ago||ooooh, shivers.||
Would love to see him come to Michigan!
I have lived in Columbus now for 21 years (yes, really), and love the attitude of the team, the coaches and all of these recruits... Whole new attitude!
Go Blue! Beat Ohio!

But they smoothed that over pretty easily...
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Hey, USC is not in the BCS rankings, right?||
I don't remember seeing them, so don't believe they get in our way in our "Quest for top 14"
