to play football, not to play trumpet

An old friend of mine designed the course. Pretty cool!
|1 year 2 weeks ago||My goal||
It is my goal to bike across the lower 48 within the next 10 years. I won't mind taking the time off to do it. Potential employers (and current for me) would see that as a positive that a very small proportion of society ever contemplates. It speaks to your character. I think it's common to take 1 month minimum which is still nearly 100 miles per day. Even more optimistic would be to race in the Race Across America - goes from San Diego to Atlantic City, NJ and you only get 12 days 2 hrs. Winners typically do it in 8 days. It's crazy.

I've wanted Miles here for a while. I'd love to see it.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||Thanks||
I'm glad to get that right finally. It must have been a rumor back in the day that I still remember as being "correct."

I'm pretty sure this was the 2nd Ultimate Warrior... the first one died shortly after taking over the spotlight way back when. True, yes? Weird!
|2 years 3 weeks ago||Indeed||
Very well put! And let's not forget that an OC worth his salt can adapt his offense to the players he's got. Michigan has a terrific athlete in Devin Gardner. I hope Nuss can take advantage of Devin's talents.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||I don't feel great about it||
I'd rather they play a better opponent becuase Michigan seems to play up or down to the competition. It'll be a close game. Michigan plays terribly out west. Michigan probably loses in annoying fashion. I wish I had reasons to make me feel otherwise. Still, you can bet your ass I'll be watching and cheering on my team and HOPING for something good.

Poop, I thought I had that right. Thanks for correcting. I'll have to check out that book as well... sounds great.

I work next door (museums annex... also to be torn down) and will also have to relocate. The reason both buildings are going is they are building another biology/science building. Ruthven will be renovated into new "pay to play" labs. This area will look quite different.

Cadel seems to be riding very well this year... I think he'll be in stronger contention than he was last year. Cadel is the team leader so they'll ride for him. It could get interesting later in the race though. I have a feeling that if last year were to repeat itself, Cadel would have his team support TVG and go for the podium.

Definitely expecting an awesome Tour this year. Lots of big guns are back (though Wiggins is out again) and the course is fricking amazing. A mountain-top finish on the penultimate stage (versus the usual TT) will be very cool, especially if the GC is a close call. I'm very excited for le Tour to begin in case it wasn't apparent!
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Wow, that kid is fast. I||
Wow, that kid is fast. I would absolutely love it if the kid chose Michigan... but I'm with Ace and don't think we'll see him leave Louisiana for Ann Arbor. Let's hope I'm wrong!
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Awesome timing!||
I just watched "An Unexpected Journey" last night!
|3 years 4 weeks ago||12-0||
I honestly can see them winning all of those games next year... as long as they play sound, disciplined football.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Cap one perhaps||
But man it's going to be against one of Georgia, Florida, S. or LSU. Shit, I hope Michigan has ALL of their players back and fully healthy for that one!
|3 years 15 weeks ago||It does seem odd||
Or amazing, however you want to look at it. I thought he was severly concussed after that hit. He couldn't even stand on his own. I really hope, for his sake, that there's no Tomfoolery going on with the coaching staff and doctors so they will clear him to play. In all honesty though, it's great he's been cleared as that would indicate that there's nothing wrong. I hate to see those players get hurt, no matter who they play for.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||This one...||
is the biggest mystery to me. I thought for sure they'd get dropped out of the rankings this week. Both Texas and WVU got their asses handed to them in both losses. The Big Ten rep is the reason for Michigan being ranked where they are... but I do NOT think those two teams should be ranked ahead of UM. Just annoying.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Yes, win indeed||
These players seem to have a great focus each week. No let down against Purdue or Illinois even after each game became a sure victory. I see this game playing out a lot like last year's game at Illinois. You never really felt like Illinois would win because the defense kept shutting them down. Eventually, Michigan's offense will put up a bunch of points and put the game out of reach. Lincoln at night... I don't see that as being enough for Nebraska to beat Michigan this year.

It's already been delayed one day... and now another. Well, you can sign up for alerts if you still want to watch it live. Hopefully it'll happen within the next couple of days.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||Michigan wins||
Notre Dame 20
|3 years 22 weeks ago||I agree||
Even before this game I thought 9-3 would be about right. They do have depth back there and I think they'll turn into a good unit once again. We just have to hope they don't lose any more starters. And I'm not convinced that ND or Neb are losses by any stretch.

I used this site to watch The Game last year and it worked out well. I recommend it... it's also free.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Actually, I agree with you||
I will get behind Hoke's decision either way on this one. But it bothers me how everyone is so quick to be judge, jury, and executioner. I really don't think it will be a huge difference if Fitz is not playing. I think Rawls will stand in quite well.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Someone else made a good point||
What if this had happened back in January? Would you still sit him or would he have served his penalty during those months? And how long does it take to work off that mistake? Will he be benched because this was a recent mistake? Sitting a game is not the only penalty, that's my point.
Also, I appreciate the snark and sarcasm. For the record, I do have an advanced degree from U of M... I have a LOT of pride in that accomplishment and I do feel that we as UM students and grads have a higher standard to uphold. I just don't necessarily agree with you all about sitting Fitz. Whatever Coach Hoke decides is the right choice in my opinion.
As for MilkSteak, a shower will make you clean again after the victory in Dallas. :0)
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Wow good point||
Someone that has thought this out a bit more than just saying, "We are Michigan and we are morally superior to everyone else." Thanks for that. I was beginning to think I was the only one.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||God forbid anyone on this board...||
ever gets a DUI! I'm sure it's happened many times. Glass houses my friends. If Fitz plays, who of you will be pissed off after Michigan wins?! No one. An above poster was correct, we are not the SEC. But we are playing the SEC. Something to keep in mind. I don't see a problem with Fitz playing. He's paid a price than none of us know anything about so all the judge Judy's out there should shut up. If he sits, he sits. If he plays you'll get over it.

Then you can see boobs and football at the same time. Win!
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Boo to you sir||
Newcastle doesn't hold a candle to nearly every other brown ale I can think of. And it's British. Are you too good for Amurrican burr?
p.s. High Life Lite is the answer if the question is, "What beer can I drink literally all day long and not get sloppy drunk?"
|3 years 23 weeks ago||You shut your whore mouth||
:0) It's much better than Budweiser. No rice or fillers and it's made in Ann Arbor. And their drinking den is cool too.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||The more important point that you make...||
We are better fans. Better how? Just better. And after Michigan wins, Alabama fans will be happily invited to UM tailgates. Cheers, bitches.
