|1 day 7 hours ago||Wisconsin, MSU, and OSU||
MSU is elite, plain and simple. Wisconsin has finished in the top 4 of the BIG for 429 years in a row. OSU? OK, we should be better than them.
|1 day 8 hours ago||This one surprises me||
IMO he started to show development of his potential down the stretch this year. Yes, it was frustrating that he did not look like a D1 player before then, but he still had time. I really expected him to make very strong progress next year.
This leaves us even thinner on the wings, but as JB hinted recently, stay posted.
Best of luck, Kam!

That's a very good Kolsch. I haven't tried the Bent Paddle Pilsner, but I love their ESB and IPA.

that we brought back from Alabama on our spring break. Not bad, not great..
|4 days 2 hours ago||Scream is awesome||
I don't put much stock in "smelling" a beer, but Scream has a better aroma than any other brew I can recall. And more importantly, it Tastes Great (but not Less Filling).

I'm very glad to see all his hard work paid off. Seems like a great guy too. I'll admit, until the last few games I would never have envisioned him as a potential NFL player.
|4 days 3 hours ago||so was Glasgow||
He would have been drafted even without any improvement in 2015
|5 days 7 hours ago||Allergy indeed||
He suffered an allergic skin reaction to the plastic from the gas mask in his post-draft partying last night.
|1 week 1 day ago||Elevation||
If he comes from the hills of TN, then he'll have to travel downhill to get to AA.

One of our radio stations here -- www.thecurrent.org -- is playing selections from his entire career this afternoon. You can click on the link above and listen via the stream.

Keep exposing the hypocrisy of Freeze, Emmert and their ilk.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||Yes, thank you||
Lynn Swann may have been the NFL's greatest WR in the 1970s. In the early years of their dynasty, the Steelers relied on the NFL's best defense and a very strong running game to grind it out, only passing to mix it up. In later years, Bradshaw threw more. Like another poster said above, Swann was so dominant he drew attention away from the other wide out (John Stallworth), allowing him to burnish his own HOF credentials. Now none of this has anything to do with whether Swann will do a good job as USC AD.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||The 7% IPA||
is a little more my style, but I prefer Summit's Saga IPA to either of these. This was #21 of Summit's "Unchained" series, where they experiment with new recipes. Some of them have been outstanding (including the best Oktoberfest I've ever tasted and a great Barleywine); this one not so much IMO.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||No I haven't||
Isn't that a Black IPA?
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Summit Us & Them limited release||
Interesting concept -- they make a regular 7% IPA and a 4% session IPA out of the same hops mash and put 3 each in a 6-pack. I'm starting with the session. Not a bad flavor, but session IPAs always seem watery to me.

I'd like to see Beilein become a little more flexible with our recruiting without getting dirty. He'll never be pushing the envelope like Harbaugh, but he can move to the middle without giving up his ethical standards.
EDIT: by Harbaugh "pushing the envelope," I mean doing things like the satellite camps, the spring break trip, sleepovers, etc. It could have been read above as pushing the envelope on ethics, which I don't think JH is doing.

Rivals and ESPN were lazy on this kid.

We used a player that got paid.
We vacated the wins.
We wouldn't have made the Final Four without the vacated wins.
Therefore, we did not legitimately earn the Final Four appearance, and Michigan does not celebrate ill-gotten accomplishments.
OSU celebrating Tressel just highlights its own lack of integrity. We're better than that.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Well||
|4 weeks 5 days ago||O'Korn||
O'Korn looked good on that last drive. We should be in good hands no matter who the starter is.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Speight||
looks like he's improved a lot.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Ahh||
I missed that nuance!
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Wow||
#162 in the US and only #28 in the state of Florida. Man, that state is crawling with talent!
|4 weeks 6 days ago||That's certainly a good point||
The only defense I see is it Spike's knowledge of our plays and strategy would benefit an opponent. I saw some discussion of that above, but different posters reached different conclusions (imagine that).
|5 weeks 1 day ago||too small?||
Size is not his problem.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Davis||
My hope is that he can be like freshman Doyle but with better hands and rebounding.
EDIT: One unfortunate thing about the transfer is that Davis, like Doyle, may be better served with a redshirt year. But we lack other big physical guys, so he may be pressed into service as a freshman.
