Forgot about that game vs. the Pride. They played them pretty close, I know Romo was out and they only had like half their players but it was still a young college team against a pro outfit.

Yep, scrimmages. So far they've played a tournament in Traverse City against CMU, WMU, and SVSU, as well as a home and home against MSU. All wins so far.
|1 week 1 day ago||Blanco and Crockett have been||
Blanco and Crockett have been splitting pitching duties. Hoogenraad and Peters (freshman and sophomore respectively) have been getting most of the run in LF and RF respectively with Christner in CF. Sobczak has taken over at C. Canfield stepped in for Romero at 2B. Team was a little lethargic yesterday, sluggish offense and Blanco gave up a couple of bombs to MSU.

I hope not. Seems like such a genuinely good kid, and you can tell he LOVES Michigan.

That blue shirt with the maize sleeves and pocket...yikes. I like the rest though.
|3 weeks 47 min ago||If I read right, it's Anne||
If I read right, it's Anne Curzan, faculty liaison to athletics and linguistics (I think?) professor at M. She was a guest lecturer for one of John U. Bacon's classes while I was a student. Awesome lady, fascinating speaker.

I'm pretty happy with our current RB commits. Give me those three, and only take a 4th if it's Carr or Harris. I'd hate to see someone like Taylor crowded out because the kid seems to have such a great attitude and loves M so goshdarn much.

I didn't notice it at first. But now that you mentioned it, I can't for the life of me unsee it.

He's the source. umbig11 has some kind of inside access to the program, so if you see anything from him, take it as legit.

It boggles my mind why people want to play for that guy. He doesn't impress me as a coach.
|4 weeks 4 hours ago||Feels like September up in||
Feels like September up in Northern MI as well... perfect fall night for some high school football, and then we're heading down to Ann Arbor tomorrow for the big one!
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Not sure if it's M66 or not,||
Not sure if it's M66 or not, but it's down Ingalls literally right in front of the new nursing building. You have to turn down Cornwell, I believe, to get in. Been parking there for a couple of years whenever we go to games, it tends to work out well for us.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Highly recommend parking back||
Highly recommend parking back by the nursing building. The lot there is free and always wide open. It's a few blocks away from North Quad/Rackham, but that'll take you right in to that side of town and up State if you want, or you could cut through campus and end up on South U to hit up a bar. I like parking there because I get to walk through pretty much all of town to get to the stadium.

As a Packers fan, I hope he goes 32nd to Green Bay. Jake Ryan and Jake Butt on the Packers?! Be still, my heart.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||What was it originally||
What was it originally called? Provided that can be disclosed, of course.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Eh, it would bother me more||
Eh, it would bother me more if Jake wasn't a 5th year senior and captain. He's up there representing the team, so it makes sense to talk about other guys that have had a significant impact on games. If they were interviewing Michael Jocz, for example, about his punt block or Hirsch about what it's like to be back on the field, then it would bother me a lot more.

That Derrick Green recruiting post saddens me.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||The fact that Penn State||
The fact that Penn State continually buries their head in the sand and demonstrates how out of touch they are is completely mind-boggling. For all the bad that was done, there was a chance to do some good - use their platform as an athletic blue-blood in America's oldest conference and their status as a respected academic institution to educate, raise awareness, and raise funds to combat this horrible issue. As a community, there could have been healing, for the institution and most importantly for the victims.
Instead, we get this. Which is almost the opposite. We could hang 200 on them Saturday and it wouldn't be enough. Absolutely no respect for their football program or any fan that cheered when they announced that guy's name on Saturday.

|5 weeks 8 hours ago||Thais Gonzales is probably||
Thais Gonzales is probably getting reps in the OF because of our logjam of depth at middle infield - Ramirez, Canfield, Vargas, Uden all ahead of her. Meanwhile, after Christner, there are a whole lot of questions marks in the outfield, so she provides some much neede depth. Swearingen hit a lot of homers as a freshman, but she also struck out a lot. She needs to get more consistent and hit for better average while cleaning up some fielding issues. I think she'll end up spelling Monte at 3B and Falk/Blanco at 1B, but likely not much else.

Ah, yeah. It was clear in my head but after a second read I see how someone might misconstrue it. Thanks for the clarification, it was one of his O-Lineman
|5 weeks 6 days ago||McCaffrey out temporarily,||
McCaffrey out temporarily, apparently, after a big hit (if I heard the announcers correctly). Valor Christian player getting stretchered off. Never good to see, hope he's alright.
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||I dunno, sounds like this was||
I dunno, sounds like this was different than a "lack of communication". Kid really liked Harbaugh but maybe didn't click as well with Partridge, who is his position coach. Nothing wrong with explaining that as a reason for decommitting, doesn't strike me as a "little bitchy pot shot".

Dunaway is a 2017 kid. Has been committed for about a year and a half, his brother is on the team, and he's a legacy.
|6 weeks 3 hours ago||Well||
This one really caught me off guard.

"Fear level = they have a great personality"
|6 weeks 1 day ago||I don't care how fun||
I don't care how fun something is to watch if it all ends up being utterly meaningless and damages the pride of my beloved institution for years afterwards. If the options are the right way or the cheating way, I'll take the right way 11 times out of 10, even if the on-court product is worse for that.

What a depressing way to start my Thursday.

Thanks, but it's a quote from The Office.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Well, apparently, in the||
Well, apparently, in the medical community, "negative" means "good". Which makes absolutely no sense. In the real world community that would be... chaos.
