"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

Yes, travel is a pain. But you can find other parents and carpool - they're all in the same boat as you. My daughter plays club and has started her three years HS. We also lived on the west side of MI, (now live in triangle/NC where girls soccer is practically religion). During our time in MI, she was fortunate to be with a good/great travel team that competed and beat Premier teams in the Detroit area with regularilty at tournaments but at a fraction of the cost. Once we moved to NC, she played club (a "premiere" level but not the same structure as MI) soccer and proabably wouldn't have made her varsity team as a freshman or all confernce as a JR without significant club experience.
She has an outside shot at playing in college, but I'm under no illusion that she's good enough to play at a place she'll actually want to attend - anyplace offering an athletic scholarship, anyway. My goal was to get her to play a sport, be good at it and make friends. We've accomplished this.

MSU '87 in EL. Late in the game, Demetrius Brown throws six (6) interceptions and we are somehow driving with a chance to win....until he lobs number seven at another green jersey. To this day, I sympathise with Demetrius Brown. We've all had shitty days. I'm sure they're shittier when you have a chance to redeem yourself but can't quite get there.

I was going to post this yesterday. Too lazy to dig for a link, but I recall Bama making some improvements to the HS facilities during or before the pre-bowl practices. "Oh. Hey Dee! Didn't expect to see you here!!"

My mind went right to the '97 title, as well. But then I remembered the playoff. And props to them, they deserved to wear the shirts. When you're in Ohio, you'll get Ohio.

I spent the weekend in Ohio to attend a graduation. Lots of portly goateed gentlemen wearing "UNDISPUTED NATIONAL CHAMPIONS" sleeveless t-shirts. Other than that I was fine.

I don't know what kind of authority the HR person has. When I'm making an offer, I always give my first/best offer at the lower end of a scale and promise raises (in good times - didnt promise shit during the recession). I'm clear about this up front. If an extremely qualified candidate counters, I might up the offer by some token amount, depending on the availability of a hireable 2nd choice. Regardless of your perspective or role in a negotiation, you must be able to walk away if there's no agreement.

When Harbaugh starts winning, he will need to be sure that our program stays clear of any perception of impropriety. Rival coaches will leak anything remotely illegal to the press/league/ncaa out of pure retribution. I think JH is just that caustic among many of his peers.

Wisconsion game in 2010. I could be wrong but I recall Mike Martin losing a knee because Bielema thought Martin was holding their pulling tackles. IIRC, Wisconsin didn't need to throw a pass in the 2nd half.
Also the game when a drunk townie accused me of sitting in "her" seat and wouldn't let it go during Denard's 3rd quarter dilithium binge.

Lets see: Go to class and get Harbaughed every day in practice -OR- get paid in cash and enjoy the year-round company of an Ole Miss hospitality committee. It's not complicated.

They were bigger than fuck in the '90's. So big, everyone hated them within 1.5 years. I'm pretty sure they hated themselves. Darius Rucker is cashing in with new country now, God bless him.

Expanding capacity or suites would only ensure empty seats and thats a bad look.
I'd suggest more creative parking arrangements - like creating downtown tailgate/foodtruck areas with shuttle service to and from the stadium. My apoligies if this is already happening.

I don't get it, but I'm not a Packers fan. I actually feared the Lambeau ring of suites around the top of Michigan Stadium when I first heard about our expansion plans.

BTW: does anyone remember the "Late Night at UM" shirts they used to sell at Ulrichs? Front of the shirt used a familiar Late Night script; back had a Top Ten list titled "Most Popular Excuses Used at UM (e.g.," I didn't want to go to B-School anyway). Wore that until the collar disintegrated.

I don't think Letterman would have been as successful leading the Tonight Show. The audience was different. Leno reached a broader crowd with his material and celebs knew Jay would lob softballs during their interviews. I was glad Dave kept his brand mostly intact when he migrated to CBS.

He didn't win the Cup every year. Sports fans can be a fickle bunch. Especially with a consistently good franchise.
