I think this is still not chosen somehow? Maybe because it would hurt. Let's hope not.

This is the question I like best so far.
I'd ask "With Jake Ryan's move to middle linebacker, where does that leave our pass rush, and will we have to count on the secondary to give the D-line more time?"

Beat me to it. I guess I didn't just make this up at least.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Fred Jackson?||
I seem to remember reading a rumor on this site along the lines of Fred Jackson intending to retire when his son Jeremy graduates. Jeremy is listed as a senior on the roster, which might imply his dad would intend to retire sometime soon. Anyone know anything more about this?

Instead of replying to the question posed in the title of this thread, I'm going to share this video of Jerry Kill dancing with his team after the Gophers beat Penn State this weekend.
At a time in which amusement is in short supply, I thought I'd pass this along since it may have been the most interesting thing to happen in Big Ten football last weekend:
Apologies for not starting a new thread, I don't have enough points.

|2 years 26 weeks ago||Metaphor||
Watching Vince grinding out one to two yards per carry was used as a metaphor for the grueling emotional experience of watching this game as a fan. Not that watching compares to the emotion on the field. I have enormous respect for all of the guys who didn't give up, especially Smith. I'm sure Ace does as well.

Most logical position I've heard stated thus far. While I would have loved to see Denard rip off some big runs, and I think his number should have been called a bit more early on, it seems clear the plan was to throw.

Exciting to see more video of Devin getting WR reps (1:40), can't wait to see him on the field this season.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Yes||
Yes I like it. I am sympathetic to the idea of giving it to an underclassman, but that's a minor issue to me.

I'm a grad student at Minnesota now, after going to Ann Arbor for undergrad. One of the nice things about the Twin Cities that I've found during the couple of years I've lived here is the great beer culutre and abundance/availability of local microbrews at most of the bars. Now, this opinion may be confounded by the fact that I tend to go to bars catering to an older crowd than I did in MI, or by a national rise in microbrew popularity during my time here, but I honestly find myself trying all kinds of new beer more often, because there is such a wide variety available on tap.
For anyone headed this way for the game, Stub and Herb's is a bar right next to the stadium with a great selection of taps that change weekly. However, this place WILL BE PACKED and hard to breathe in around gametime. For a lower-key atmosphere a bit farther from the stadium, I recommend west-bank (across the river from the stadium) area bars such as Republic, Acadia, and Town Hall Brewery. All great choices with good selection. There is also a Michigan alumni group who meet for drinks in downtown Minneapolis during games. I think they used to meet at 508 bar but moved one door down (west) last year.

Actually though, Thompson seems like the most logical answer to me. We seemed close to reeling him in early, he's a 4 star at a position of need, etc.
