That's what you'd think but I watched a few combine performances this year and saw some similar looking 3/4 reps. Was pretty surprised. Will try and see if I can find the footage I'm thinking of.

Obligatory downvote for combo of pedantic and wrong.

Ditto. Thankfully at a non-extortionate Red Roof in Cedar Rapids but wondering whether there's a more expert move. There ain't jack on Airbnb, though. Is there any public transportation from Cedar Rapids to Iowa City or does this mean driving in and parking and driving home? Would like to find transportation that is compatible with having a few bourbons if possible. Uber does appear to be in Iowa City, at least.

"merit alone." That's a valuable concept.

"When" is the important part. The staff's been in place for over a year. If this happened as recently as some of the reports have suggested (last couple of weeks), this is shitty behavior.

You're right. We basically agree. I just think some of the OMGLOLBBQ reactions below are bizarre.
|33 weeks 3 hours ago||Agreed. The level of glee||
Agreed. The level of glee here is really weird. Like I guess would rather have OSU without Bell (and other players we know are good) next year, but in the long run this is what a high-functioning program looks like and this idea that this is bc there is an appreciable difference in academic ambition between the players at each school is pretty silly.

You're high if you think Georgia is even going to look twice at Durkin.

Saying "social media" is dumb is just silly. Twitter's admittedly done a crap job of making it easy for people to get value out of the product when they sign up, but if you put the time in to follow the right folks, it'll become an indispensible part of how you get news about anything you care about. If you're interested in sports/Michigan stuff, I've got a big list of folks you can pick off and follow here: https://twitter.com/daveheal/lists/sports/members
Another good method for finding good people to follow is to look through who people you respect are following. So: going through Brian's follows and seeing who seems interesting is a good way to start off.
|38 weeks 3 days ago||Definitely||
Definitely enjoying that they lost, but they also looked like a different class of football team for most of that game. They've had a million injuries and have at least 3-4 guys, including some true freshmen, who we'd kill to have as RBs and WRs next year. So, yeah, glad they're out of the playoff picture, but I didn't feel awesome watching that game after the performance we put in today.

Hey, let's not!

Any feedback on sizing from the first set of orders? The size chart looks like they may run a bit large (46" chest on the medium).

This was really great, Adam! More of this would be awesome.

Yeah honestly that was uniquely terrible but this team is way better than we expected and we're gonna be OK.

++ for commentary on a woman sports personality without mentioning her attractiveness positively or negatively. I think this is her first time with a regular TV spot and I've been pretty impressed too.

This was a joke segment. Relax, Francis.

FWIW, in some meaningful way I owe most of my post-law school career (in tech/startup stuff) to having gone to Michigan. A professor at Michigan Law introduced me to one of her old students before I came out to Colorado and he just happens to be a partner at a venture capital firm in town. There are so many Michigan folks out in Colorado that it's a massive help professionally.

Spelling and grammar in Jay's tweet look fine 2 me.

Can we maybe not refer to anything here, let alone a high school kid, as "muff cabbage"?
