beat me to it.

Champs at the bit. fyi.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||"They must become us. We will never become them."||
From one of Strong's pressers earlier this year regarding players on thin ice. I'm a big fan.

There can be no true despair without hope.

He recruits and coaches a heck of an o-line, I'll give him that. But that's all.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||Disagree||
Greg Davis acolyte. Also demonstrates questionable player management skills. See, running David Ash on QB isos two weeks after a concussion.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||Neither Mack Brown||
nor DKR were "Texas Men" and they did just fine. As for politics, that only really helps a coach retain a position when he's underperforming--I'd just assume have a unpolished coach who will either win or gtfo.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||I'll take that bet||
Texas doesn't need Nick Saban with its resources. Just a solid X and Os guy with an ability to instill toughness. Strong is that guy, though any number of other coaches would have also fit the bill.

That's something you don't see everyday on a Michigan blog.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||I remember||
When I got drunk and posted.

I think the announcement came after the banquet (last night), and after Saban signed his extension (yetsterday). The Heisman ceremony is neither here nor there.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Really?||
You really think they were trying to steal the thunder from the Heisman ceremony?
|2 years 34 weeks ago||I suppose||
But I think tennis has some pretty stringent testing proceedures, no? And Nadal has always been more thickly built than other top players, save maybe Tsonga.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||That's a good point||
I suppose the US has been without a consisent threat to win a major for so long, I don't have much of a national rooting interest these days, even at the US Open. I just enjoy the matches for what they are.

He seems like a pretty good dude, and is a hell of a competitor. What's to hate?

to hear more about my plant, Tacoplants.
Keep up the awesome work.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Feanor||
as in The Silmarillion? That's awesome, though it seems you're fated for a trip to Bolivia at some point.

The knowledge that you will be letting your teammates down by acting like a knucklehead is the best deterrent there is in a team setting.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||I'd rather be rich than stupid.||

Play action waggle, complete for 3, receiver gets leveled.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||He could just make the fundraisers mandatory||
And call it a subscription fee. Would that make you happy?
For me, I'll tolerate the crowd sourcing, and be content knowing that Brian is getting some of that Internet Money, friend. Wouldn't want MGoBlog to go on strike.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||And you spend all day in his threads||
bashing him. Who's worse?
Also, way to call him a liar.

It's getting time for NCAA to rule on his eligibility. Could be that.

Baylor is a 6-6 team this year--they just lost way too much, and their defense is borderline RR-era bad. Still rooting for Stonum, though.

I had a buddy freshman year of college named Will and we happened to be from the same hometown. His family had a beach house outside of town, and his parents threw a little party, inviting me and my family.
So we all drive down there, and Will's brother, Win, was there with his girlfriend. Will's mom (who was a space cadet in her own right) kept claiming that Win and this girl were fabulous musicians, and basically begged them to play some of their stuff. Win was a little too shy, and refused. I was skeptical anyway, and secretly happy not to be subjected to some amatuer guitar-strumming crap.
A year later I find out that Win is playing SNL with his band, Arcade Fire. Never can tell, I suppose.

I believe he's only considering schools that are recruiting him at linebacker. He's been pretty adamant about not playing with his hands down, for what it's worth.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||He did indeed||
and yes it does.

He's got maybe the best blend of athleticism and passing ability in Texas this year. Swoopes (#1 QB in Texas) has the higher ceiling, but Barret will be ready to play quicker out of the gate.
