Let's see what it does. Stauskas (Stauskas?) was a spot up shooter as a freshman, became the B1G POY and #8 pick (Stauskas??).
Trey had a good freshman year, but became TREY after one summer of development. Etc. Etc. Etc.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Yes||
They have big sales every year to clear out the previous years' stuff, regardless of supplier. Adidas has new polo designs this year, so last year's go on sale, etc. That's how I've always picked up my polos, usually in August, and about half price

And you should feel bad

|6 days 12 hours ago||There are places to go near||
There are places to go near chicago (where I grew up and am now) but it's a day trip to actually offroad. I'll never forget that round trip from my dad's in the Chicago Burbs to Ann Arbor was 3 16-gallon tanks of gas... I do NOT miss that about my Jeep.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Hey man, any time you can||
Hey man, any time you can spend $130,000 on a 1970's designed military vehicle, you've got to do it, right?
|6 days 12 hours ago||I owned 2 Jeep Wranglers. See||
I owned 2 Jeep Wranglers. See the Avatar, that was a good stuck-in-the-mud. I can't speak to the latest ones, but my '98 was a much better 2nd car than a primary car. If you're using the Jeep as a regular car, you're going to have a bad time. If you're using it as a toy, it's perfect.
|6 days 13 hours ago||Yup||
When you're chasing the PT Crusier, you're doing it wrong
|6 days 13 hours ago||Replaced||
Turn your ire to the new CLA. It's a FWD platformed cheap Benz, but hey it's got that star on the grille.
|6 days 13 hours ago||The engineer in me hurts||
You know that the Flex is just an Explorer - with more space because it pretends to be a truck less - right? More space, better mileage, and its cheaper!
Sigh... this is why no one buy station wagons...
|6 days 13 hours ago||I hear ya||
My sister has one and in my opinion they're great appliances for people who use their car as an appliance.
That said, I don't think I've ever driven anything more annoying. I was ready to strangle the engineer who OK'd the brake pedal feel. For those who don't know, hybrids and electric cars have 2 brake systems. One is the usual dry friction brakes that every car has. Hybrid/electrics also have regeneretive braking - using the spinning wheels to charge the battery back up. The Prius (and most H/Es) modulate these two braking systems with the one pedal and the transition between the two is absolutely awful. I think people will go elsewhere in a hurry. Teslas have the regen braking with the gas pedal - foot off the gas, regen brakes kick in. That way the brake pedal is just the "normal" friction brakes. Others have steering wheel paddles - like shift paddles, that kick in the regen brakes. Doing it all with one pedal is just a terrible way to drive.

Right up there with never trust a kicker. The good news is he's another lottery ticket that hopefully won't have to be scratched off for a couple years. Drevno has earned the trust in development, we'll see what his recruiting acumen is, or if it even matters because he can just coach them up.
|1 week 3 days ago||I thought it was 2000, that||
I thought it was 2000, that NU knew Michigan's defensive signals and that's part of how they scored so many points.
|1 week 3 days ago||Had one Wednesday||
It was pretty heavily posted in!
|1 week 3 days ago||Probably not if he has to sit||
Probably not if he has to sit out a year before playing. Were he to graduate he could have played immediately as a grad transfer.
That said, maybe the year off will help him finally get healthy. As others have mentioned, best of luck wherever he goes. He was one of my favorite recruits I've followed, hope he can get and stay healthy.
|1 week 3 days ago||I was there. And sober||
The big memory for me was when Michigan snapped the ball into the motion man and NU recovered - deep in Michigan territory. Three TFLs later NU punted. It was so much comical ineptitude it would have been hilarious if it wasn't so sad.
|1 week 3 days ago||Yep||
I was at the 2000 Anthony Thomas Fumble/They had our signals game. The whole time.
My last game as a student was 2008 Northwestern, which Michigan lost in a 38 degree rain. Whole time.
I was at 2013 Northwestern, in a frickin typhoon only to see the Dileo Poweslide (that was pretty OK I guess) Whole time.
Then M00N. Whole damn time.
Oh, and I was at the triple OT basketball game this past year too - but I left after 1 Overtime to get home to a sick dog. At least I left that one?
|1 week 3 days ago||I was there||
I WAS THERE. IT WAS WORSE IN PERSON.
|1 week 4 days ago||Great marketing||
"Goes Like Hell"!!
|1 week 4 days ago||Done. That'll be next week.||
Done. That'll be next week. The less rational the reason for the hate, the better.
|1 week 4 days ago||Funny you should say that.||
Funny you should say that. Heard a story the other day on the closing of FAO Schwartz's iconic NYC store... mentioned at the end that FAO is owned by Toys R Us.

My job and my personality are to the best of my ability.
|1 week 4 days ago||Like art fair||
But I always traveled in for it. I can understand how it disrupts the locals.
Also I've found I want to buy all of it and can afford none of it. which is frustrating
|1 week 5 days ago||Traffic?||
My commute is LSD, lower wacker, and the Ike. I'll give you traffic....
|1 week 5 days ago||Not too memorable||
The low range transfer case meant little to no drama in push starting a Jeep. Thing would crawl and start
|1 week 5 days ago||Not a motorcycle rider, so I||
Not a motorcycle rider, so I wouldn't know where to start a Bikes thread. Feel free to do one next Tuesday though!
|1 week 5 days ago||Re - Uniforms||
They won't be quite as simple as the practice ones, because despite all the talk about how the Helmet and Pants make them look like Michigan jerseys, the fans who buy them won't have the helmet and pants on (unless we've got some full kit wankers). My guess is there will at least be maize number outlines.
