Get them to simulate two dolls waking each other up at 1AM with their cries and then have both of them screaming at the top of their lungs for the next 3 hours while you sit on the floor in tears wailing "WHAT COULD YOU POSSIBLY F***ING WANT??" because you need to get some sleep before you have to go to work in just a few hours. THEN maybe the dolls would be effective.
|1 hour 3 min ago||1997-98 Rose Bowl||
Single day flight the night before from:
Detroit Metro to Minnesota to Seattle to San Francisco to LAX.
Note that the connection in Seattle was on different airlines and was set up by me with only a little bit of cushion. We had plane problems in Detroit (baggage vehicle hit the plane and put a hole in it, requiring a plane change) and got into Seattle very late. I had to sprint through Seattle airport, including a tram-subway switch where I got to leap through the closing doors of the departing subway train, to be the last person on my departing flight--the doors had already been closed but they still let me on.
Obviously was all worth it. :)
|1 day 39 min ago||If the Evans hype is real||
what makes sense is to use him instead of Peppers on offense. Nothing against Peppers offensive abilities, but given how critical he is to the D, I'm always terrified that he's going to take a hit while on O and get injured. If we have another guy that is thriving in that ATH role, I wouldn't mind Peppers being LESS of a 2-way guy this year.

When I think about the two programs that I'd say are the most obvious cheaters in the country, I think Mississippi and Baylor. Sounds like it is Mississippi's time to Pay the Piper.

Harbaugh is not going to let us go out there in clown suits like Brandon did.
|3 days 53 min ago||The real question is||
why in the ever living f*** did WE ever agree to play there two years in a row? Brandon left us a toilet bowl of turds, but this may be the hardest one to flush away.
|3 days 11 hours ago||I love his philosophy||
What is "high risk" with today's offenses IMO is sitting back on defense and letting the offense pick you apart. I like what he said that our defense will be, at all times, ready to "bring it" (I'm assuming "it" is pressure) to disrupt the offense and that the defense is going to dictate things on the field and not just sit back and let the offense come at them.
Pulling that off on defense is super difficult these days, but if anyone can pull it off, he's the guy with the track record of doing it.

From my (admittedly not worldwide such as yours) experience on the subject, it seems to me that the ones that rank among the 'best" so to say seem to always know this and decide they must balance this out by being completely intolerable in some other way.
I never got to ex-fiancée status with mine, but at least I avoided ex-husband status. She's currently working on husband #3, and yet there is some irrational part of me that still wonders if somehow I could have made it work.........
|3 days 20 hours ago||Carr TOTALLY screwed over Brady||
That being said, Henson WAS pretty good. And Brady has said several times that battling it out with Henson like that taught him what he needed to win the job away from Bledsoe in NE.
Lloyd would probably look better if Henson hadn't been a meathead and thrown his pro football career away for minor league baseball. If Henson had gone on to be a #1 draft pick it would be a little more obvious why he played even when we had Tom Freakin Brady.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Looking out for himself||
This is almost certainly the best decision for his athletic future. Looks like he was buried on the depth chart here.
Good luck to him.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Dunno||
if I thought I could be an NFL kicker, I'd take that path over slogging it out in the minor leagues. Baseball is one of the toughest pro leagues to make it in.
|3 days 21 hours ago||No question||
that Hoke knew his D-Linemen. Unfortunately, his talent evaluation didn't seem to be as spot-on across the rest of the football field.
|5 days 22 hours ago||At the 1990 Gator Bowl||
That was literally the ONLY song the Ole Miss band played. Their half-time show was, I kid you not, "Seven Variations on Dixie".
We've had a lot of good wins over the years, but outside of Ohio State, I can't say I've ever been happier to just grind a team into oblivion like I was that day.
|6 days 13 hours ago||"Vandalism"||
He seems to have peed in some bushes and might have torn down a poster. Yeah, TOTALLY worth drawing two guns and demanding money.
Under US law those guards would likely be facing charges.
|6 days 21 hours ago||Nothing has ever been confirmed||
but I have heard stuff (I know, who the hell am I right?) from people who have highly enough placed sources that leads me to believe it is probably true. But not enough that I'd be willing to wager a large amount of money on it.
Regardless, I wish Coach Carr the best, whatever his health concerns are.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Right||
Lochte is "guilty" of telling his mom a fish tale about the evening, and then his mom went and posted it on social media which is what blew this whole thing up. The basic details of the story--that he was pulled out of his taxi at gunpoint and had money demanded of him, are what he was telling the story about. I'm sure if that was happening to you in a foreign language at 6AM while you were drunk off your ass you've probably think you were being robbed as well. Yeah, he shoudln't have exaggerated the story to his mom, and once his mom ran with it, he should have backed the story down before it turned into this international incident. But we already know Lochte isn't very bright.
I don't think anyone is saying the US swimmers were choir boys here or acted 100% perfect. But unless there is some video showing smoe other egregious act, how you get to a total of 44,000 in fines, which is basically what the Brazillian cops are demanding in extortion money to let them leave the country (though Lochte already left so there is no way he's paying) is utterly preposterous. If this was happening in the US, the Feds would have already stepped in to completely shut the cops down.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Yeah||
I get that Lochte is a douchebag and that he exaggerated the story, but this whole thing screams shakedown and I'm not sure why everyone is so quick to believe the unbelievably corrupt Brazillian cops. These aren't US cops. These aren't good people.
I mean, they basically held the one swimmers credentials and made him a prisoner in the country until he ponied up $11,000. Sure, call it a "fine'. It was basically extortion. Do anyone seriously believe he did anything that amounted to a fine of $11,000? That is so utterly ridiculous the only rational explanation is that is was a shakedown by the corurpt Brazillian police. They saw a bunch of American marks and they were looking to cash out.
Not to mention that if the gas station/cops didn't have something to hide, they wouldn't have edited 3 minutes out of the security camera footage out. There is only one reason you would do that.
|1 week 20 hours ago||As I originally said||
Always look for motive. What possible motive would Lochte and company have to make up a story about someone pulling a gun on them and demanding money?
Now, I can see the motive for them leaving out the part about them peeing on the wall. And I'm guessing that when they told the story originally, they never expected it to be blown up into world news like this. But there was NO MOTIVE for them to just make up a story about guns being drawn and money being demanded. Lochte is already semi-famous. He's been on TV a ton of times. He doesn't need attention like this. He would have to have a mental-illness level of pathological hatred for Brazil/Rio to need to make up some story like this as a negative PR-strunt.
You would only make up a crazy story like this if it got you out of trouble somehow, and there was no trouble for them to be getting out of. The story only CAUSED trouble for them. It made no sense that they just made the whole thing up.
|1 week 21 hours ago||LOL||
Why did anyone believe Brazil for even 1 second? I would trust a drug dealer in the US before I trusted the police in Brazil.
Not that Lochte's story is 100% correct, but if someone with a uniform pointed a gun at him and demanded money, that's enough for me to say he wasn't just completely making the whole thing up, even if he wasn't being completely forthcoming about the full extent of the situation. Rent-A-Cops don't get to draw their weapons on you and demand cash because you broke the bathroom door or peed on the wall.
Amazing tha the gas station edited out the part of the video where the weapon was drawn.
|1 week 21 hours ago||What?||
Weapons and corruption at a gas station in the middle of the night in Rio? No way!
|1 week 21 hours ago||Flight Tracker?||
When are we busting out flight tracker?
|1 week 1 day ago||Yeah||
the Mrs. rolled her eyes on that one as well.
|1 week 1 day ago||Ok so, I don't get it||
Let's say Lochte and co. and making this all up.
What do they have to gain by making all of this up? What are they trying to cover up? That Lochte lost his wallet? That they were out late? I mean these aren't douchy teenagers looking for publicity. What could they possibility be trying to get out of making this story up?
If they really just made up an armed robbery story for the hell of it, they are f'ing idiots.
|1 week 1 day ago||Naw||
If I was Fred Jackson, I would have said he has the moves of Barry Sanders and the hands of Jerry Rice.
The kid has some really good HS film. I didn't have any personal expectations for him, but given that he is getting a bunch of hype in early leaks, I'd say he's probably the real deal. How real, well we'll see in a few weeks.
|1 week 1 day ago||Evans||
If you watch his HS film, two things stand out IMO. He is unbelievably SMOOTH. He changes directions effortlessly. Makes it look easy. And he has FANTASTIC hands for a running back. Wide-receiver level hands.
Good to hear that his skills are translating to the Div. 1-A level. If he can make people miss in college at half the rate that he did in high school, he'll be special.
|1 week 1 day ago||Newsflash||
It doesn't get under anyone's skin. We just all think you sound like an idiot.
I mean, according to our school crest, we're "The University of Michigan". I suppose we could all go around referring to ourselves that way, but it would be really dumb.
|1 week 2 days ago||I think there is another data point missing here||
If the runner in question here was losing her balance or stride at all, then diving may have allowed her to keep going forward at full speed, whereas attempting to keep running may not have. On the replay it almost looked like she was slightly cramping up when she dove. If you were cramping up or losing your balance at all, it would be easier to dive than to continue running upright.
No idea if that had anything to actually do with it. Did she say exactly why she dove in an interview?
|1 week 2 days ago||Priorities for a successful QB, all IMO of course||
1) Decision making
2) Throwing Accuracy
3) Ability to move in the pocket to keep a play alive
4) Ability to make pre-snap adjustments/audibles
5) Arm strength
6) Pure ballcarrying/running ability
Unless a guy has a noodle arm, having the strongest arm on the planet is way down the list IMO in terms of what I am looking for our of our starting QB.
|1 week 2 days ago||I agree||
Nothing real at all to go on, but I feel like if O'Korn was going to be the starter we'd be hearing more hype about him. Everyone assumed he would step in and take over. The less we hear, the more I think Speight is winning the battle.
|1 week 3 days ago||Yeah||
The NCAA rule on weed use is reallys stupid. But you know what ELSE is really stupid?
Using weed when you know it stays in your system and you might be getting drug tested by the NCAA, and getting caught means you face a massive suspension.
C'mon. Every kid likes to party. But obviously their priorities were really out of whack.
