and kudos to DB and Hoke for getting it done. We've played UW often enough during reg. season and in the RB that it doesn't interest me much more than most conference games do, but it'll be a good game nonetheless.
|7 hours 54 min ago||you'd care a lot more about their wedding day||
I'm pretty cynical about the whole wedding-industrial complex anyhow. My in-laws eloped, and they were married for 49 years until my MIL passed. My wife and I eloped, and we've been together for 35 years. Meanwhile, I can't count how many expensive weddings involving people I've known ended up in the divorce rubbish bin, and the thousands of $$ spent went into the bin as well.

RR did this too—Will Campbell's first year was spent in spot ST play. We sure as hell could have used him last year, and it would have potentially been far more valuable than what little he did in 2009.

I can just as easily say that the Saturday wedding people just have to suck it up and accept the fact that other people have other priorities.
|8 hours 17 min ago||"my wife made me paint the house" is not an excuse.||
Frankly, it's a better excuse than "having" to be in a wedding for somebody who isn't your best friend, or your former GF, or a family member, but just a roommate for a couple of years.

since my mom passed away that day. It's strange, since I couldn't watch the game and only saw replays later, but it's still stuck in my memory anyhow.

to work out the kinks with Barnett before we go up there. Putting this in the win column for us simply and only because Miller won't be playing assumes that OSU doesn't have the talent and the coaching to make up for it, and that's not the case.

but I think that the wide-open nature of the CFL might be a perfect fit for Tebow and other college QBs like him.

If you don't like him, it's proof your soul is rancid and diseased.
|1 day 1 min ago||Yep, they're breaking out the alternate hydrants||
for the Penn State game. All yellow, with blue wings and helmet stripes, with reflective strips around the plugs. The old fogeys bitch and moan, but the kids and recruits love 'em. They can paint 'em pink and put tu-tus on them for all I care as long as they spew water at the appropriate rate.

So speculation about a replacement for a future opponent that's in dire financial straits and considering dropping their football program is bad, but repetitive "what are you drinking" threads filled with arguments about the virtues of Yeti Imperial Stout or Heady Topper or Dogsquat Rye Ale are just fine.

you might as well have angled strips of duct tape on your pants.

There's no way any program from a Power 5 conference comes here for a one-off; they'd all demand a home-and-home, which gets much more complicated. For that reason, the only likely candidates are schools at the level of Ohio, Marshall, Utah St., Troy, UAB, etc.. I agree with the others here that Ohio is the most logical short-notice candidate.
Good stuff, WD

he's been around forever.

I've wanted to animate the flames for a long time, but I'm not sure whether an animated GIF would work as an avatar here.

The fact that Brady had Al with him as long as he did is not 100% reassuring, but at least the change was made eventually.

Avatar nothin', that's my photo.

One-way trips to La Paz should be more frequent.
|1 day 9 hours ago||you get a terrifying force under center like Drew Henson||
Which is rather ironic, since Mr. Terrifying Force jumped the UM ship for a crappy MLB career.
Come to think of it, the other notable Mr. Badass Cannon Arm Ryan Mallett also booted, albeit for very different reasons.
As far as having "the brains to match" goes, Henson would probably have been no worse than a top 5 pick in the NFL draft, and very possibly #1. I bet his first NFL contract would have far exceeded what he got from Steinbrenner.

There's a guy who won a NC for Notre Dame and three Super Bowls for the 49ers who didn't have anything resembling a cannon for an arm. There's a former Michigan QB who's won some SBs with an arm that's never been described as being a "cannon." Michigan won its last NC with a QB who nobody would say had a "cannon."
What's far more important is having the ability to make quick, good decisions and then getting the ball off accurately to the right receiver. Speight seems to have displayed that ability, at least at the HS level.
If Speight doesn't become a notable QB at Michigan, it won't be because he doesn't have a "cannon"—it will be because he makes poor decisions under pressure and isn't accurate enough in key situations.

That's all well and good, but how are their anal scent glands?

LOL Their first mistake was thinking that Stevie Wonder had any juice as a fund-raising act in 2013 to begin with. His best creative days are long, long behind him.

Don't forget to say they can wear pink tu-tus for all you care.

If all these schools were unable to sell new jerseys with all this new shit on them, nobody would even be thinking of doing it.
New packaging = increased sales of the same pizza.

So in other words, it was all just an idiot rumor started by the CBS affiliate.

John Bacon has been saying exactly that for years.
He's often said (paraphrasing) "To Michigan fans, a victory is merely a loss delayed until a later date."
