|13 hours 52 min ago||We've found Rashan Gary's weakness?||
His vertical as a junior was 0.1 inches less than than the vertical of the average DL at the Combine. I really hope he's cleaned that up. Might not have been worth landing him otherwise.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Becoming someone's guardian is very difficult||
You're taking away a great deal of a person's autonomy, so the standard for appointing a guardian is very high. The person has to be unable to even direct the maintenance of his/her affairs.
There is also the problem of the guy's ability to simply leave any facility you put him in. Someone with severe dementia, for example, is relatively easy to confine. But Manziel is capable of calling a cab and going to a bar. There's no good way to stop that.
Note: this post is not legal advice. I am a lemur chained to a computer.
|1 day 12 hours ago||I have no inside information either||
But it is sometimes the case that the people closest to an addict have to say "I can't have anything to do with you until you get sober." That's all you can do as a last resort.
|1 day 12 hours ago||I wish I could give more than one upvote to this||
|1 day 12 hours ago||He's in serious trouble||
His dad supposedly publicly questioned whether he'll make it to his 24th birthday.
|1 day 14 hours ago||We should do one for you too||
My guess is that you have some pretty entertaining stories.
|1 day 15 hours ago||If Netori Johnson's nickname is really...||
..."Fifth Element," then landing him needs to be Michigan's top priority.
|2 days 9 hours ago||As a general principle...||
...you can't assume a settlement is a sign of guilt. There can be many reasons to settle.
That said, I don't mean this as a comment on this specific matter. I haven't followed it closely enough to have an opinion.
EDIT: beaten to the punch by Hannibal, whose network show was canceled all too soon.
|2 days 10 hours ago||I'm excited about this kid||
He is really agile for a guy that big - the highlights show that he can go around people. And he makes some very nice catches in his highlights. That one-handed grab really stands out.
|4 days 4 hours ago||This is not a bad Michigan team||
But this is not a good one either.
|4 days 13 hours ago||Naked Lunch||
I found that pretty readable - if extraordinarily dark - for whatever reason. I could not finish Nova Express by Burroughs. I'm not even sure it was meant to be finished.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Is that the one with the Lorax?||
They run together in my head.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Maybe because...||
...a huge amount of attention is being paid to guys who are uncommitted and he wants to get in on the fun of having an announcement this week.
|5 days 6 hours ago||I don't think this is necessarily a bad omen||
Isn't Sam Webb still confident?
|5 days 6 hours ago||The worst case scenario, I think, is that there...||
...is a God and that he hates us.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Never get involved in a land war in Asia...||
...or a down-to-the wire recruiting battle with a southern school. I'll assume it's Clemson and be pleasantly surprised if it's Michigan.
|5 days 14 hours ago||This only thing I can think of:||
Madonna will be Michigan's new recruiting coordinator.
|5 days 15 hours ago||I would be surprised if...||
...the Swenson/Hamilton situation did not hurt Michigan at some point. We can argue all day whether it should or shouldn't, but I think people have to concede that it will look bad in the eyes of some people. I can imagine a recruit wondering, fairly or not, whether he can trust Harbaugh.
|1 week 8 hours ago||Winning is good!||
|1 week 1 day ago||Nope||
We'll both be at an Eriks meeting all day tomorrow. And you can't make phone calls during an Eriks meeting.
|1 week 1 day ago||A quarterback?||
That would be surprising.
|1 week 1 day ago||cave paintings||
I've decided I really, really don't want to be part of the wussification of America, so I'm now for the summary execution of everyone. No one can call me soft.
This is not meant as a comment on this situation, which I know almost nothing about.
|1 week 1 day ago||This is good||
I like this. I am happy. I am Jack's feeling of contentment.
|1 week 1 day ago||Are a bunch of guys still set to transfer?||
How is this class going to be as big as it's seemingly set to be? The vast majority of the fifth year seniors are guys you have to keep.
|1 week 2 days ago||The link lists potential transfer options||
I didn't post that b/c the news of him leaving and the potential transfer options are essentially the entirety of the article.
|1 week 2 days ago||Not a break-up story, but...||
...Winona Ryder has never expressed her undying love for me. As a member of Generation X, this still hurts.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yikes||
I think you might "win" this contest. I'm sorry all of that happened.
|1 week 2 days ago||I don't know what the truth is, but...||
...Sam Webb has said multiple times that the staff wanted Richardson.
|1 week 2 days ago||Two things:||
1.) I choose to see the hilarity in this.
2.) The DL is set to be very young and possibly very thin in 2017, but then the whole 2017 defense is set to be very young and possibly very thin in 2017.

Please keep him out of trouble.
