|1 week 3 days ago||Seeing his name spelled||
Seeing his name spelled weird, I thought it was either a typo or something science just can't explain. It weighed on my mind. I asked my feisty neighbor, and he lamented it was just another foreign name from "those immigrants." Being more sane, I decided it was not some seismic event, but just a name and not some heinous crime.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||You nailed it. The ankle||
You nailed it. The ankle biters will always take shots at the heavyweight on the block.
It's good to be back. Muck Fichigan, TTSUN, Big Brother, Fence the Garden...it's good to have real estate in the head of other fan bases.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I haven't read the actually||
I haven't read the actually texts that he sent his girlfriend. If he was mostly upset the guy was black, then you guys are absolutely right. If he just used the n-word along with other profanities, then it's more plausible that he was hurt and trying to disparage the other guy with any nasty words he could think of.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||While I don't condone racism||
While I don't condone racism in any respect, form or fashion, I don't fully understand how that is so much worse and almost nuclear than beating up the wayward teamate in a fight, calling his mom something vulgar, or using any other type of profanity against the player or his family. Also, if it was a black teammate saying it, I'm guessing that guy would still be on the team.
Honest question, if he would have slurred another race, would that have also caused such a strong response?
|5 weeks 3 days ago||DVR's are great!||
That's why I always record any game on the DVR and start watching around halftime. I skip all the commercials and halftime and finish the game right around the time it actually ends.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Great question. I'm guessing||
Great question. I'm guessing the attrition rate for walk-ons is higher than for scholoarship players. After their freshman season, some might not find it as attractive. That's a heavy load playing football and going to school.

Agreed. It sounds awkward at best.
|6 weeks 10 hours ago||So he skips right past||
So he skips right past archbishop and cardinal? That's a triple promotion!
|6 weeks 16 hours ago||Caddyshack||
In his accidental way Briles actually did some good here. So he's got that going for him.
...but will he have total consciousness on his deathbed?
|6 weeks 1 day ago||One of my favorite memories||
One of my favorite memories was after his huge game against Illinois. They asked what he thought when he woke up that morning and with a big smile he says "I'm Huungry!"
The press room busted out laughing.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Have to admit, I would||
Have to admit, I would consider leaving if I never got to regularly play, even as a senior. I would rather play at a lower school than sit four straight years.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks||
Thanks for your posts and just ignore the whiners.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Life is short...never take||
Life is short...never take yourself too seriously. Our coach is awesome.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||While O-line is a bigger||
While O-line is a bigger priority, I'd still prefer Gay to be the third commit tomorrow.
Either Becton or Gay, along with Nico and Solomon would make a great day tomorrow.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Well said. More prestigious||
Well said. More prestigious schools help with landing the first job, but after that it's what God gave you between your ears and your attitude. Successful people come from many different schools or have even skipped college all together.
I look at work experience after someone has been in the industry for a while.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Same here. By that time I'll||
Same here. By that time I'll be watching Matlock reruns and yelling at kids to get off my lawn.

You really need to stop being turdish. Turdishity is not a good look for you.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Good thing the feedback from||
Good thing the feedback from the NFL on where players might get drafted is better these days.
Warren leaving early to not get drafted is a shame. He obviously received bad counsel, but a more accurate draft grade might have swayed him to stay.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Kinda funny how people||
Kinda funny how people thought that either Taylor or O'Maury Samuels would drop out of this class. Nobody seemed to mention AJ Dillon, yet he's the guy that bolted.
We heard Dillon's side, about how he felt the compeition might be rough at Michigan and that he felt he was more of a contingency plan for our staff. Did our coaches try to go after him again or was it more of a mutual parting?

Just watched that episode last night. Classic. Poor Chuckles.
|8 weeks 15 hours ago||I also wonder just how good||
I also wonder just how good the kid will actually be. Competing for a back-up tackle spot as a redshirt freshman is nothing special, but could put him in line for future playing time as an upperclassman.
Will be interesting to watch if he pans out. Based on what I've heard about the kid, I'll say no, unless his raw talent overcomes other deficiencies.
|8 weeks 15 hours ago||I'm starting to think that||
I'm starting to think that celebrity deaths are going to continue happening at an accelerated rate. As the enternatainment industry (film, TV, music) started expanding in the 50's, 60's and 70's there were a lot more names that became famous. Now we have a bunch of famous people in their 70s, 80s and 90s who are nearing their end.
For whom the bell tolls...

First laugh of the day. Made me in sign-in so I could up vote.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||He does look fairly solid for||
He does look fairly solid for a 6'3 high school senior.
After watching his HUDL video, NO WAY is this kid a 2 star recruit. I don't care about the competition, just watch him move and react. If he was at a big time high school, he would be at least 3* and maybe a 4* recruit.
The fact that his brother (who has a similar build) will likely get drafted and play in the NFL next season just adds to the case that he's way underrated.
Hope they land him next weekend.

I just tried to google terpitude and for some reason typed in fortitude and got the answer I expected for terpitude.
Thanks for the lesson. I never use the word but did think of it as somethiing positive....obviously confusing with fortitude. Glad I went into engineering where spelling is optional.

Being hated by Richard Sherman puts you in a very large group. You can only whine and bitch so much before people tune you out.
