Considering how much of a piece of shit Wells's report and conclusion was, Goodell's way out should've been let an independent arbitrator handle the appeal and most likely overturn the suspension. Since he has shown his complete ineptitude and lack of judgement numerous times before, he didn't do that and now he is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Keep the suspension (or even reduce it) and Brady will sue, and he will most win. Overturn it and he'll lose whatever semblence of authority he still has

We hear talk all the time of which 5th year seniors aren't getting their scholarships renewed, it is far from guaranteed. I see nothing wrong with this. He was provided a scholarship for four years and graduated with a degree from Michigan. Its not clear if he even wanted the opportunity to earn that fifth year or if he just decided to move on. It happens frequently but Hetizman just went out with some unfortunate quotes.

173 posts and no one mentioned the Nissan Juke? Looks like a busted frog. I can't imagine who would find this car attractive. WTF are with the fog lights (or whatever they are) in the middle of the damn hood

There is also a baby book titled Let's Go Blue from the Carr era that was still being sold on campus as of the first UTL (edit: link to book on Amazon below). All about two Michigan fans walking across campus to go watch the football game, watching the team run onto the field and the band performing at halftime. Ends with the kids giving Coach Carr a high five when Michigan wins. Was my son's favorite book.

Started with a few spicy margarita type concoctions made with mezcal, lime juice and jalapeños at dinner. Now that the kids are sleeping it's time for a two fingered pour of laphroaig quarter cask.

Am I missing something? It's not that rare of an occurrence for NFL kickoffs to go through the uprights which is basically what this is, right?

Interesting move. I would've started with banning them from punching women, but I guess thats why I'm not a head coach of FSU....

Wow, never would have realized that you need to clarify that a heavily redacted incident report was in fact heavily redacted

I really hope that Harbaugh was more or less telling him, we don't think you can play anymore, you most likley won't see the field much or at all, you won't be able to make the NFL, so instead of spending countless time and effort practicing when you won't play, focus on your studies. I just can't see why he would push out a soon to be senior when we aren't over the scholarship limit.

He could also know that player X isn't playing tonight or someone else has the flu, etc. Its not hard to picture that scenario.

Its not like he bet on the Reds to win every day. As such a prolific gambler, the mere act of him not betting on his team to win on a given day would be just as bad.

Seriously? We had a shitty coach the last four years that was gloriously ill prepared for the job. They are a walking inferiority complex, even after owning us for the better part of a decade.

This isn't someone hanging out in the slums or with drug users/dealers. Hernandez is a sociopath that shot up people multiple times based on some perceived slight. Can't chalk that up to not being able To leave it behind.

The great majority doesn't give a shit whose logo is on the shirt. Ugly is ugly and don't care if it has a swoosh or a few bars (or whatever the Adidas logo is) and both companies make just as many brutally hideous clothes as each other. To think there are thousands of fans just itching to buy clothes if we switch to Nike or would immediately replace their gear just for a damn swoosh is insane.
|10 weeks 19 hours ago||Wife and I both went to||
Wife and I both went to Michigan and were introduced as to the Victors playing as we walked in which the band then segued into our first dance song. Pick a good song and try to avoid the generic first song cliches.
Other things that I considered non-negotiable:
- I would not get married on a football weekends or any other significant weekends that I didn't want to go to a wedding on (NFL playoff weekends, NCAA tourney, holiday weekends).
- Wedding has to have an open bar with a good choice of beer, liquor and mixers. Make sure to get it in the contract what they will serve and specify brands ifyou have any favorites. I picked the scotch, vodka, beer that would be served and also specified if I wanted a particular mixer.
- Pigs n blankets were not negotiable at the cocktail hour. A wedding without pigs n blankets is not a wedding.
- Have a do-not-play list for yoru band or DJ. We had most disco and generic wedding songs on there that people under the age of 50 can't dance to. We told our band that the primary thing we wanted was to have our friends dance and to pick appropriate songs for that.
Another piece of advice, once your reception starts, it may be hard for you to actually sit down and eat. If you get married on site (rather than at a church), most places will have a room for the bride to get ready. Highly recommend that you ask them to stock it with the cocktail hour food so you can relax for 20 min after the ceremony and get a bit to eat before going to the reception. Once the party starts, you'll have a tough time eating so get it while you can.

Some terrible advice re: band. Good wedding bands are better than a DJ playing his ipod. Good is the key word. Nothing can ruin a wedding more so than either a bad band or DJ. Do your diligence. If you've been to a good wedding in the area, figure out who played that one.
Try to remember every wedding that you have been to had terrible music and remember those songs. Put them on a do not play list. Having a do not play list is much better than picking every song (but shouldn't stop you from having 1-2 must play songs)
