This sucks for Jourdan. Hopefully there is nothing to the alleged incident. What is strange is how often he had mentioned his girlfriend prior to that alleged incident, in interviews where he gave her credit for keeping his life stable and focused....

Back in 92 when I was in college, I was a bartender on the Star of Detroit, which was a cruise liner which went up and down the Detroit River. There was Star I which was a larger yacht specializing in dinner cruises, and Star II which was a Mississippi style Paddlewheel boat which was the "party boat", especially on Friday afternoon Happy Hours. It held about 60 people.
One particular Friday, we were on Star II out near Grosse Point and this speedboat with a couple of Red Wings drove past and stopped. Probert was one of the players. We had a Tex Mex Happy Hour thing going and the manager made some Burritos for them and threw them over the side of the boat to the happy Red Wings who gladly ate them up. Then they waved and sped off.
That was a fun summer...

Hope Drake makes it back. He showed in 2015 that he still had the burst to be an effective back on 3rd downs with screen passes etc. He has an infectious attitude as well.

A couple of years ago I went up to Tahoe in late November on a business trip. I live in LA and this was my first time going up to Tahoe.
After landing at the Sacramento Airport, I went to the National Rental car spot and they had one car left... a brand new Chevy Camaro with a Michigan Manufacturer's license plate.
Now, I have the National Executive plan so I had driven Camaros before and they are fine. Typical US "muscle" car for mass production. Decent speed, good looks and not quite so good of "fit and finish"...
This particular Camaro though...was different....MUCH DIFFERENT.
Perhaps it was the Manufacturer plate, which signified some sort prototype (what was a Michigan M plate doing up in Sacramento anyway)...but this Camaro was spot on Excellent in every way. Blindingly fast, handled nearly as well as the German Porsches and BMWs that I have owned, loaded with Options and the fit and finish was excellent for an American car as well.
I had a blast that week carving through the snowy mountains on the way to Tahoe...and around the lake... then cruising up to Reno and back for a day... it was one of the most memorable times that Ive had with a vehicle.
I didnt drive the Camaro....I WORE it.
On the morning of my return to the airport, I was running late and had to gun the little beast through the snowy mountain passes to get back to Sac town airport on time. I think I made it in an hour and 45 as I recall...and topped 100 several times on long stretches. Not a trip for a medicore driver and not one for the faint-of-heart either.
That particular Camaro was special and hung in all the way. I think it had as much fun as I did that week behind the wheel.

My company is also an S-Corp. Another advantage to this corporate structure is that my Obamacare (a high premium / high deductible health policy) is paid for by the S-Corp.
The health insurance premium is considered taxable income, however it is exempt from FICA and SS taxes since I am more than a 2% shareholder in the company. On my personal return, it is deducted as self-employed health insurance. Win Win.

|3 weeks 14 hours ago||Yes better pure Strong Safety||
Yes better pure Strong Safety than Jabrill. Jabrill played CB mostly in HS and was an amazing RB. I projected Jabrill better at RB than at CB.
Hudson is the best pure Strong Safety that I have seen on tape in many years of Michigan recruiting. He takes excellent angles, tracks the ball very well, and has great makeup speed. He is also excellent in hand-play with the receivers and has great ball skills in addition to being an sure tackler.
Its not a slight to Jabrill, he is just a different type than Hudson. I liked Hudson better as a pure SS.

As I said when I saw his HS tape: Hudson is the best Strong Safety recruit that Michigan has had in the past 20 years.

I met Denny McClain back in the early 90s, when I was tending bar to pay for college.
I was working a beer/soda cart at a golf outing and turned away for a moment from the cart to do something. When I looked back, FAT ASS Denny had pulled up in his cart and was rummaging through my drink cooler.
I knew who he was, but I walked over and said "excuse me sir...do you have drink tickets to pay for those?"
"I dont need drink tickets" Denny snarled at me.
"Well, you need drink tickets to pay for those drinks sir. Thats part of the golf outing rules"
"I said I DONT NEED DRINK TICKETS!!!!" Fat Denny Yelled at me....and then he put the several Cokes which he had stolen in his cart and sped away.
Nothing but a Thief at every level of his life.
Fat Denny McClain deserves to be in prison and will burn in hell once its all over.
That thing should never be celebrated....

I like Jabrill a lot as a player and human...and I believe that he will be a solid NFL player. Perhaps not Woodson-esque, but solid overall with a deep career in terms of season played.
Thinking of Peppers potential leaves one bittersweet however, as the Peppers era at Michigan did not result in any B1G Championships, no wins over OSU and began and ended with season-ending injuries.
What could have been...is how I will always view Peppers at Michigan. A very good player, but not enough accomplished to rank him among the Top 20-40 Michigan players all time.

Dang! I knew Darboh was quicker than most thought but 4.46 is impressive. With his size, speed, hand and route running I see Amara going no later than the 3rd Round!
Chesson, IMO lost a step after that knee and is still working his way back....stilll 4.47 is an excellent time for a guy coming off a knee. I see Jehu going in the 4th or 5th round.

Back in my day (late 80s) .... DC was the best program in our Catholic league division. We played them every year. They sent 2 big Tight Ends to the B1G, neither of whom ended up doing much college. I think one was named John Filliatrau or something like that. I had the pleasure of having to cover both of them in my junior and senior seasons....and I shut both of them down. Zero catches.
EDIT: It appears that Filliatrau is their current HC...

Tough loss. This kid is a lock to play in the NFL if he keeps his head on straight and works hard.

Harbaugh was making over $4 million dollars a year as a QB back in the 90s:
http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1996-08-04/sports/9608040106_1_jim-ha... He has since made many more millions as a head coach in college and the NFL. Id estimate his net worth to be $50 million + if he was smart with his money.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Najee Harris will be a good||
Najee Harris will be a good RB in college, not great. He is slow, lacks burst and is a bit on the thin side for a power back.
Just calling it how it is: Najee Harris has 5 stars, but in now way does his tape show a RB who will dominate on the college level....unless he has a great OL.
Perhaps that is the real reason why he chose Alabama: He knows that his game needs big holes and he cant make it on his own.

Samuels is a different type of back than Harris. Not as big, but quicker, more burst and top end speed.

Happy about this. Samuels is a burner with a very athletic body. He could be a real impact maker, home run hitter for this offense.

Leading his team to 7 Super Bowls in 16 seasons as a starter (really 15 since he was injured for almost all of 2008) is amazing. That record may never be beaten by a QB again.
