With some college-level strength and conditioning he could do really well. He and Teske would be an interesting contrast.

Sweet relief. Or whistling past the graveyard.

The lemons-into-lemonade reverse at 3:50 was spectacular. I believe I was at that game but don't remember anything about it other than my friend's reaction to seeing the Stadium for the first time.
I remember Woodson making a tremendous (!) tackle against Texas A&M in the bowl game his freshman year. He overran the play, stopped on a dime, lunged backwards, and tripped up the A&M ballcarrier with one hand. He also left that game with a knee injury and I remember thinking "no no no no no no!" If that happened today we'd hear all about it, but back then the internet was plain text email and confer groups. It must have turned out to be minor because I never heard another thing about it and he was back to being himself by the following season.

The thing is, is that people say things without considering how they sound.

Bold and stupid men, who are also weird:

A few of them in excruciating fashion for the PSU faithful. That was good.
The loudest PSU fans have been horrible in the wake of the Sandusky scandal. There are plenty of nice PSU fans and I feel for them. But they are drowned out by the nutcases.
I think they're in for a tough few years. They'll be lucky to finish third in the B1G East anytime soon. Franklin is okay but he's a puntasaur in a division with three aggressive game day coaches who will have better talent than he has.
|1 week 11 hours ago||Cousin terminology||
You share a set of grandparents with your first cousins.
You share a set of great-grandparents with your second cousins.
You share a set of great-great-grandparents with your third cousins.
And so on.
Second cousin once removed is either the child of your second cousin or the second cousin of your parent.

Last year's UM team would be favored to sweep them.
Our team was playing poorly before Levert's injury but we should be well motivated for the games against MSU. We have three game s to get used to playing without Levert before traveling to East Lansing. The schedule sets up nicely, with four days' rest for UM before each meeting. Please please please.

I heard from some friends who attended that it was a good time. I wish I could have been there; alas it was a weekday evening with lousy weather and some parental obligations. JUB told the Cannavino story when he was here a few years ago promoting Bo's Lasting Lessons.
I got to chat with John Kolesar at that event. Kolesar is about seven years older than I am, so he was torching the Buckeyes during my most impressionable fan years. Plus he was a skinny kid from the Cleveland area who attended Michigan, and even though our similarities ended there, he was my hero. I think I did okay keeping it cool. He told a great story about how Woody Hayes was indirectly responsible for his attending Michigan, with an assist from a surprise source. John's dad, William Kolesar, was in high school when Woody got the job at OSU. Woody's zeal for juco players rankled the Ohio high school coaches, including William's coach at Mentor High, Lee Tressel. Tressel encouraged Kolesar to attend Michigan instead, which naturally led to John growing up a Michigan fan.

Now it's time to reel in some recruits.

He's just standing there taking in the scenery of a beautiful woman in nice underwear and heels chatting with his bro and ooooooffff. Again and again. I mean, it's not like he's the guy wearing the Chive shirt.
Punishment disproportionate to our crimes!
|1 week 4 days ago||I met Seth Broekhuizen's dad the following summer||
Seth didn't have a great year, but despite being a walk-on he performed significantly better than scholarship kicker Gibbons. The placekicking wasn't really the problem that year, so I don't remember being upset about anything that happened with kicking, but I decided to take a more Hoke-ian approach to criticism of individual players.

that the NCAA is just doing this so they can revoke the wins again later.

|1 week 6 days ago||Well yeah. Did you notice the pic of the woman in duck costume?||
Her costume is interesting, but I couldn't help but notice the OSU fan next to her wearing a jacket that appears to be made of money. Chutzpah!
|1 week 6 days ago||Same||
Also, I wanted to tell you that your avatar is, for lack of a better word, tremendous.

At first I thought we were talking about Dior Mathis.
|2 weeks 15 hours ago||They are relentless||
in their pursuit of more and more OSU clothing and tchotchkes. Many of them also feel honor-bound to be rude to Michigan fans of any age. I've lived in Ohio for 30 of my 40 years and I have experienced it early and often. The first four years of the Cooper era coincided with high school for me, those were great times. And the first two Games after I moved back to Ohio were 1996 and 1997. It hasn't been that great since then. For the past few years, the naked aggression has been accompanied by pity. I didn't think it could get worse but there you have it. I wanted Harbaugh four years ago but I'm sure glad he's here now.

That has to be the next step, right?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I'm not above being selfish||
Heinz Field is closer to my house than Michigan Stadium is, so a short roadtrip would definitely hit the spot. Also, anything would be better than a return to multiple home games against MAC schools every season.
