Plenty of time to circle the wagons. On the bright side, Ole Miss doesn't strike me as the type to have boosters with juice for more than one or two golden classes.

I'm pretty sure mankind is unfamiliar with his enthusiasm.

Because giving away outs by stealing and bunting in "playing the game the right way." Leyland and a host of other old school mgrs weren't immune to this style.

I don't know. Part of me thinks that the whole Fedorov at defense thing we just another room in Scotty's doghouse. Sergei made some sarcastic comments about what an 'honor' it was during the following years contract holdout.

Addendum: "The University of Michigan will have complete authority under our partnership to use its historic and iconic uniforms for every regular and post-season game, without regard to opponent."
That would be "perfect."

I can't seem to pack a buzz when my in-laws are in town. Doesn't matter how much I drink.
But they're not coming down here (NC) till August. So luckily I won't have that problem this weekend.
|3 days 14 hours ago||I think the plot lines are||
I think the plot lines are actually better - or at least more entertaining. There's no way they'll top last season's performances from Harrelson, McConaughey and Fukunaga (dir). But I've been very into the first couple episodes this season. It's noir - not a superhero blockbuster.
The lack of buzz reminds me of Mad Men once it lost its pop culture momentum.

Any cap room for D Wade? I hear he's looking for a sweet hook-up.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Ithaca High School (MI).||
Ithaca High School (MI). State Champs (Div VI?) 2010-2013. Won 69 or 70 straight until the championship last year. QB Alex Smith committed to Toledo, attended Wake Forest and transferred to EMU. 2010 QB Alex Niznak went to CMU, got some reps against UM in 2013 and transferred to school in Missouri.
Our program has been historically good for its level, but really took off when the playoff format was expanded. My era was dominated by underachieving teams that couldn't make the tournament in the old system.

It was a pretty average story until the bit about our Marching Band Director having relations with their mothers. I have no doubt this happened. And can you imagine the ride home? 28-0. 0. Beat by your death rival AND your mothers hooked up with the hated rivals'...BAND DIRECTOR.
|3 days 15 hours ago||The only value to dancing||
The only value to dancing with a below-average host like Cowherd is exposure in front of a large audience. But I'm not sure what his demographic is at this point. An intelligent sportsfan isn't listening unless he's trapped in front of the radio. I'm going to assume recruits wouldn't think Cowherd is funny/informative/otherwise entertaining. If we assume Harb shit the bed, what's the downside?

Beating Wisconsin by 17 didn't impress my State friends. [farmer voice]: "seventeen points?! You kidding!?" ah, nostalgia.

That crowd in the 89 OSU game was stood and roared for 60 minutes. Pre-suites, it might have been the loudest game at Michigan Stadium.

I laughed out loud: "descent into Ohio." That's exactly what it feels like - a Heart of Darkness vibe.

Everyone remembers Federov as a prodigious scorer, but he was an all-around beast. In '97 during the Stanley Cup Finals (game 4, I think) the Wings faced a 5-3 power play. Federov was on the ice as one of the three Wings during this stretch and broke a stick along the board. The Flyers managed to set the puck back to the point, isolated against the stickless Federov. The next few seconds were amazing - Sergei was athletic enough to get his skate on the puck as the Flyers player tried to brush past him in open ice - and start a break as one of the other WIngs (likely Lindstrom) scooped it up and went the other way with a quickness.

Regardless of what did or didnt happen to Pipkins, we need options at WR. A fast Drake Harris helps our offense.

According to my observations, most coaches don't greyshirt their first wives until a year or two into their first D1/P5 contract. So, no. His staff is likely a year or two away from building a strong roster of 2nd wives.

No. Nope. This rationale makes me feel better. Besides, the SEC brings this on themselves by actually paying their players.

...which would be fine in and of itself. I'm as basic and lowbrow as they come, but we seem to be having a contest to make the funniest post about a real tragedy involving kids.

I'm more bothered that it exists, and it really shouldn't at this point. What started out as a relatively simple "hey, look what this PA brewery is doing with Paterno's legacy" OP turned into fun and games about child molestation.
I'd rather not think of my classmates and our fanbase as one that is entertained by jokes related to sexually abused children.
