That heart attack after a game once was a pretty loud whisper. Frankly, I'm surprised his smug non-smiling heart has allowed him to continue coaching this long.

Lived there for 8 of the past 9 years, just moved back to AA. TC is a great place to live for the most part. Elementary and middle schools kinda suck and not much support for education. Biking to lake, lots of public land, and pretty good food options were nice. Pretty whitebread place so if you seek a diverse peninsula look somewhere else.

Totally agree with this. I planned an AT hike for a number of years when I was younger and never got around to it. Now with kids, job, mortgage, etc. the thought of even trying is comical. It is a pretty bit regret. If you really want to do it get it done now when the obligations are fewer and you are cool living with only a few bucks in the bank.

Wait, this is part of the punishment...
"a 10 percent reduction in off-campus evaluation days for coaches during the 2015 evaluation period; and a 12.5 percent reduction during the 2016 evaluation period."
They punished themselves by giving Hugh Freeze less time on the road and more time at home with the kids. Fucking Ol Miss

We bought here last year, price wise it is not San Fran but it isn't Grayling either. We signed our purchase agreement before setting foot in the house and paid a good chunk over asking, it was extremely competative. I had never heard of the term "escalator clause" before trying to buy here. Our realtor said with the U and several large corporations in the area as well as the good schools and general good timeiness of the town that there is a pretty consistant supply of homes (University and corporate relocations) and that the area is buffered somewhat from the ebbs and flows of the regional housing market. Gas, groceries, clothing, etc. all seem to cost about the same as the rest of the state but the propoerty taxes are murder.

I had this before, right foot. At the ER the ortho did not know that my room was right next to and in view of his desk and the little light screen he uses for looking at X-rays. He put my x-ray up there, flicked on the light, looked at it for perhaps 1.75 seconds and said "Jones fracture, I hope he doesn't play basketball." Many many months and two surgeries later my foot was sorta normal but my semi-serious running career was kaput. Years down the road now I still get pain there all the time. I hope Caris has better luck.

As an Idaho alum (grad school) I am...completely unmoved by this. Football there was a mildly interesting side show a few weekends of the year but I was coming from U of M so most places would likely feel the same. Kibbie Dome represent, now pass the lentils.

Care to link that article? I'd be curious to see how someone ranks the class difficulty of football players in an empirical manner. Or was this an "article" on the 11 warriors message board?

I tried sling out last fall in a cord cutting experiment. It was terrible. Monday night games were poor quality when they were even coming in. Most were unable to be loaded. Customer service was not helpful at all. It wasn't my computer either as I could easily switch over to netflix or other streaming site. Cancelled after a couple months.

China is really bad but tame compared to Vietnam where it is a free for all of high speed weaving and thousands of moped/motorcycles. I spent most of my time overseas a little further north though driving Russian vehicles which are comically unsafe but sturdy. One of my rides for a couple of years was this rigged up 6 wheel drive Russian troop transport with the ass end of a bus welded on. Lots of fun, and would go anywhere.

wish i had know about him a few months ago. went with Huron Valley Financial and had the worst home buying experience possible just short of them dropping the ball at the end and losing our house for us. terrible customer service and incompetant loan officer caused weeks of stress and headaches. also paying at 4% for the next 30 years instead of 3.825% solely because of their screw up. stay far away.

"In my mind, Michigan should have had Jim locked down a month before that, and could have. I can only conclude that Dave Brandon is the sole reason Jim did not become our football coach in 2010."
Ugh, reading that is some painful shit.

This is a different bird most likely as it looks like a jake, notice the short "beard" on the chest. A male turkey alive in 2013 would have an enourmous beard by now unless it froze off in the winter (not likely in Ann Arbor). When this one grows up though and gets some nice pointy spurs and a bad territorial attitude I think people will not enjoy having it around. The DNR will likely come in and trap it then.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Totally agree. Very ugly.||
Totally agree. Very ugly. But I still love mine. Comfortable to drive, very safe, very reliable (0 problems in 3 years of ownership), and quite handy. The fold up seats and in bed trunk are very usefull and swallow gear. Kills it in the snow, stability control isn't too touchy and works like it should. Off road it isn't like the Tacoma it replaced but does fine for most purposes and carries the hunting dogs just fine and a dead deer or two. Cons: ugly, from most angles but looks fine from others which is weird. Mileage sucks, should be better for a smaller truck. Towing capacity is limited at 5000lbs but gets most things done. Looking forward to the redesign which is rumored to be coming soon.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Being a wildlife biologist is||
Being a wildlife biologist is never useful on this blog, until today (or when discussing Bret Bielema). That is a raccoon with some kind of condition leading to hair loss such as mange, ringworm, or alopecia. Sometimes a diet change can do the same. Google "raccoon with mange". Happens with coyotes also and people go nuts and call the TV station. Perhaps Mrs. Stock should supply it with whatever she uses on her own scalp, seems to be very effective for her and they are both mammals so why not.
People thinking that a medium sized mammal can maintain a population level high enough to persist yet somehow go undocumented for decades in areas with high human populations, tons of hikers and hunters, and severe habitat fragmentation are living in a fantasy world (populated by bigfoots (bigfeet?), chupacabras, loch ness monsters, high school linemen with "excellent pad level", large breasted centaurs, and Miley Cyrus.)
