Can't wait for our starting XI to be: Gsuprning, Yedlin, Traore, Hurtado, Evans, Alonso, Zakuani, Rosales, Dempsey, Johnson, Martins. Plus Neagle and Leo can add to the lineup in various ways. Can't wait to go to the Timbers game on Aug. 25.

|25 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly||
Just like Kelly Olynyk did at Gonzaga. Redshirted his junior season because he wouldn't get much playing time, then came back his RS Jr. year and dominated.

We went to the same high school an his brother was my homeroom teacher my sophomore year. I used to watch him practice during the summers at a local college. Classy guy all the way around and always made time for people. It's cliche but true: he was one if the good guys in sports.

FWIW out here in Oregon it seems like the Ducks are still the favorites to get him, but he just wants to look around and make sure. Can't really blame him for wanting to make sure. UCLA seems to be the main threat and word is that former Washington QB Marques Tuiasosopo, who is now on the UCLA staff, is the catalyst behind the decommitment. As some of you know, UW and Oregon are bitter rivals, so I'm sure Ducks fans are not thrilled to hear about this for a few reasons.

A set is to 6, win by two (so 6-0 through 6-4). However if it's 6-5 that is not by two, so you can win a set 7-5. But if they tie it up at 6-6, you go to a tie breaker which is playing to 7 points (counting normally), win by two. The only time they don't play a tie breaker is in the 5th set at certain Grand Slams, where they play until someone goes up by too (see: Isner/Mahut at the 2010 Wimbledon).

I studied for only about 48 hours before the test, and focused on verbal strategies and math with a Kaplan book.
Just FYI though, not sure if you know this (you probably do, but I didn't): they changed the scoring system not too long ago, so when numbers in the 160s showed up, I thought I had failed miserably. Turns out it's out of 170 now in each section. Crisis averted, but for about three hours I was freaking out.

|1 year 45 weeks ago||Fed's backhand||
This match boils down to tactics, adjustments, and Federer's backhand. Against Del Po, Federer was obviously trying to pick on Del Po's backhand. Fed was realling opening up the court by running around his BH when he could and putting his inside-out FH's cross-court. This kept Del Po from hitting his monster FH, pulled Del Po off the court (opening up the court for Fed), and lastly, kept Del Po off balance.
Should be a fun match, though I'm dissapointed I won't be able to see it because it's so late (I live on the west coast) and I don't have DVR. Also I have Sharapova over Kvitova.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Agree. Both "Dexter" and||
Agree. Both "Dexter" and "Homeland" finales were excellent. I thought "Homeland" as a whole was a much better season, but both left off in major cliffhangers. So many questions about both! Seemed like the "Dexter" writers were setting us up for next season with much of this season and so many loose threads not tied up.
Seriously, if you're not watching "Homeland" you're missing out--and you're only 12 episodes behind and have nine months to catch up. I promise you won't regret it!
|2 years 1 week ago||Ever since Leach was||
Ever since Leach was reportedly on the sidelines for the spring game last year, he has been rumored to replace Wulff. I guess Leach and WSU AD Bill Moos (former Oregon AD who served there until 2007) must be good friends. Bellotti was also rumored for the WSU gig, but it looks like Leach is their guy. It makes sense: the Cougs return virtually eveyone off this year's injury-ridden team that was one special teams blunder (SD St.) and literally five yards (Utah, UCLA) away from 7 wins--all without their stud QB (who also returns next year). They have two very good QBs on their roster and an NFL-ready WR. Their running game is not very good, nor is their defense. Sounds like a Leach team to me.
|2 years 1 week ago||He has a few things going for him:||
Name recognition, the upgraded facilities that you mentioned, two excellent QBs (Tuel who will be a senior, Halliday who will be a sophomore), and an NFL-ready WR (Wilson who will be a junior). Though Pullman isn't easy to bring in the top prospects, many coaches have walked into worse situations.

Or does it seem like Scottie Reynolds has been at Villanova forever? And he's still there.

I posted it above, but here is the link for the Narduzzi quote.

I think you're onto something. I think Dantonio did tell his team to rough up Denard. Heck, his DC Pat Narduzzi said after the game: "That's what we try to do. Sixty minutes of unnecessary roughness. I'm just happy it didn't get called on every snap." Link

Any chance you have another to spare? My email is cstorm07 (at) gmail (dot) com Thanks!

IMHO, Hot Rod and Zoolander are up there along with Dumb & Dumber, SuperTroopers, Wedding Crashers and some of those other classics.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Fab Five days||
When I was four my family moved to Grand Rapids and I'm sure like many of you, those early days of the kindergarden-ish age is when I became a huge sports fan. This was during the Fab Five era, so naturally I became hooked on Michigan basketball (and then football). I think I was six when the C-Webb timeout happened...and I know I shed a tear. Okay, I shed a lot of tears. I remember I had a Michigan basketball hoop set up in my garage and practiced on it for hours imitating Jalen, Chris, et al. My family then moved back to eastern Washington (during the Drew Bledsoe days) so I grew up a fan of both Michigan and Washington State. To this day, those are the two teams I follow very closely/borderline religiously.

I hope there is no footage of the throttling Miami in a bowel game.

What a great week to be a Michigan Wolverine. Hell, it's always good, but especially this week. Beating Sparty, getting some good recruits, the Great Pos-Bang of January 2011. I can go to sleep easy tonight.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Me too||
I thought the In Rod We Trust and The Rebellion were my two camps, but I can certainly see aspects of the Fierce Pragmatist (thought RR deserved one more year, but rooting for Hoke to succeed) and Decatur Clan (loved RR, rooting for Hoke, but had him about 5th on my list). Those four, in some respects, kind of blend together a bit.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||Interesting that Saban used||
Interesting that Saban used the pitch that they "need running backs" because Trent Richardson is a senior and Ingram's leaving. But what about the other four and five star running backs they've signed in the past few classes (1 5-star, 3 4-star, and 1 3-star) plus Dee Hart in this class.
Just another example of Saban going for the next great player at the expense of another player he probably said the same thing to a few years earlier. I don't want to hate on Dee because he probably felt that this was the best decision for him, and I wish him luck (except on that one 2012 Saturday in Dallas), but it's hard for me to see how these kids keep falling for it. Sure, some do make the cut and play for an outstanding team, but the ones that don't are left behind.
Sorry, just a little 1 a.m. rant. Been a frustrating recruiting day.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||2008 recruiting class||
Not to mention that the recruiting class from three years ago is barely his, with the exception of some late snake oil. That's what I don't get about the whole situation. Sure, this isn't what we want, but look at who is playing. I'd love to see what RichRod and Co. can do with a secondary not full of freshmen and an upperclassman at QB.

Colorado College lost to my alma mater in men's hoops last night. There's a CC update for you!

Pretty much any David Halberstam book is solid. Personally, I liked Playing For Keeps and The Breaks of the Game the most.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||WSU||
Paul Wulff has put a little more of an emphasis on recruiting Florida and, I believe, has four FL commits in this class (including two from Orlando). That doesn't really answer the question of why WSU other than perhaps he sees Wulff recruiting hard down in Florida and a few others have signed with the Cougs, which might give WSU a little traction with some players down there.

You went to Linfield? I went to Whitworth. The best non-Michigan game I've been to was the Rose Bowl (Oregon/OSU) last year, but the second best was a Whitworth/Linfield game when we beat you guys for the first time in like 60 years or something. I think that was 2006 or so. You guys were always so good (and continue to be) at football among D3 schools.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Cyrus Hobbi, etc.||
Thanks as always, Tom! As a west coaster, I always look forward to reading your late night bits. That way I get my mgoblog fill at night too. Any new updates with Cyrus Hobbi? I remember he visited a few months ago and seemed to enjoy his stay. Just wondering if there are any new developments in his recruitment.
