I guess this is what you expect from a Michigan Man?

I'm guessing no one will ask you to do the obituary.

Yes, well lubricated!

I think it's the result of growing up watching the Lions be bad, and Michigan be good. I love College football, and rarely watch the NFL.
Here, in Texas, there seems to be more football fans, who consume high school, college, and NFL mediums with equal vigor.
Maybe I would like the NFL if I grew up watching Barry Sanders?

Thanks! I'm planning on smoking this and a Brisket for Thanksgiving, unless you post something I can't resist trying around that time.

So what you're saying is the average college freshman is too immature to make a life decision? Then why do we let them go to college at 18? Why do we push college on them knowing they are not taking the financial burdens they will accumalate into consideration. How about picking a school, or a major? Why let them even have the choice if they are not "old' enough to make an educated decision.
This entire way of thinking is naive. I'm not thinking of the 1500 calories I consume every time I try an MGOBBQ recipe. But, I sure as hell know eating 1500 calories every meal will make me a fat ass.
Joining the Military out of high school is one of the best deals a young man or women can get. Immidiate free helath insurance for you and your family. Life insurance policy, mine was $600,000. Free tuition, room and board. A chance to actually learn a skill. And the honor of serving America.
Don't whine to me about PTSD. Every military member is schooled on it, and made very aware of it. Not to mention, by serving in theatre you only icrease your likely hood of getting PTSD by about 3%. From 8% for the general public to 11%.

Ha, it just sounded legalese. I actually agree with you, it was just snark!

I completely disagree with this (not the brain development part). So, at what age should people be held accountable for their actions and decisions? Your saying "kids", aka grown ass men and women, are all duped into joining the military?

Did you previously work for the tobacco lobby?

I made the smoked armadillo eggs 2 weekends ago. They were awesome! This is one of my favorites each week. Keep up the good work. Do you have any recipes for smoked ham?

I think simply recruiting a QB every year would give Harbaugh the ability to appear better than his predecessors, even if he wasn't a QB whisperer.

Because it's the Internet... Sadly. I'd call you a whiney B**** but i'm afraid you'd kick my ass. Oh wait, anonymity. Bitch!
That sort of thing.

I moved to Texas 2 years ago. I went to an apple orchard every year to buy unpasuterized cider when I lived in Michigan. It was awesome, and I miss it very much. I bought some "cider" from Sams Club last week and it was rank, spoiled in the Southern heat...

I'll leave the debate with this.
''It's a crapshoot,'' ESPN analyst Lee Corso said. ``No one knows how guys are going to develop over a period of time. But it sells newspapers. It sells Internet websites.''
Seriosly though, these types of discussions are why I joined the blog. Thanks for entertaining me without asking me if I like the new maize color at half court of Crisler!
|4 days 17 hours ago||I see recruiting rankings||
I see recruiting rankings like Preseason Team rankings. You can't tell till the rubber meets the road. I much more enjoy reading the analysis of players (unfortunatly, usually on rankings websites) and the recruiting process than to see if a website has given them 4 out of 5 beans.
MgoBlogers will fret over star rankings all day for football, but apologize for basketball recruiting because of Belien's ability to see past the stars.
The exact same argument was made for MSU when they were "coaching up" 2 and 3 star recruits into studs.
A recruit ranking website explaining why their rankings matter.
|4 days 17 hours ago||Around 75% of 5 stars who do||
Around 75% of 5 stars who do get drafted aren't in the NFL after 2 years. Obviously there are more 4, 3, and 2 stars drafted due to the sheer number of them. But, to catagorically say 5 star recruits will make an impact as a freshman and have the "potential" for the NFL isn't exactly a stretch.
The rankings system might matter for team success, but they almost mean nothing to the individual.
|4 days 18 hours ago||Last years draft had only 15||
Last years draft had only 15 4 and 5 star recruits go in the first round out of 32...
Ranking websites tell you they are important and all knowing because they wouldn't exist if you thought they weren't.
|4 days 18 hours ago||When 5 star recruits are||
When 5 star recruits are defined as 3 and out players with early entry in to the NFL, a succes rate of under 50% seems, well unsuccesful.

14 defensive lineman made the first team last year, with only 3 concensus. There is plenty of room!

|4 days 18 hours ago||I hate the line of thought||
I hate the line of thought that the final 2 minutes are more important than the rest of the game. If it is "important" enough to review at the end of the game, it's important enough at the beginning. Football had some kind of convoluted logic like this as well at one point.
|4 days 18 hours ago||All the websites are fine.||
All the websites are fine. How many 5 star recruits have bombed over the years? And, who is Jordan Kovacs? I try to not get invested in them.

Yes! It used to be the Copper Bowl. There was a great write up on the board with the Bowl Game names and histories last year, or the year before. I'll see if I can find it.
