|1 week 1 day ago||Yeah, take the extra time in the Chicago area.||
There's not much to do in South Bend aside from visiting ND, whereas Evanston alone is Ann Arbor-sized. When you add in the fact that you've got all of the resources of Chicago just down the road, it's a no-brainer.
I went to Northwestern Law, though the law campus is downtown so I hardly spent any time in Evanston. The few times I was up there, campus seemed really nice - the setting on the lake is fantastic. I would suggest staying in Evanston if possible, since you'll really want to get a feel for the area around campus. When you want to go downtown, just hop on the purple line - it's easier than dealing with parking downtown, anyway.
(Though if you anticipate that the purpose of this trip will be more for fun than for campus visits, the inverse is true as well - it's easy enough to stay in Chicago and take the purple line up to Evanston and back.)

I understand your points, but we've got the #1 defense in the country, we're scoring 50 ppg, and your expectations are LOWERED? I'll have some of whatever you were smoking this offseason.

If you look at the way he's moving as he enters the frame from the left, he appears to be off-balance after disengaging from #76 and half-falling into the QB. I don't think it was an intentional hit.

If you click through and look, he only has two CB predictions, both for OSU, both made nearly a year before he committed to us. No new predictions in the aftermath of his decommitment.

I'm pretty sure that there was no way to comment for the first couple of years.
The comment section in its current incarnation is about 8 years old. Prior to that (back in the blogspot days), the site used a system called Haloscan, which was full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. But if I remember right, even Haloscan was implemented well after the founding of the blog.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Northwest side||
I would suggest looking on Craigslist, Padmapper, or other similar sites for a rental home on the northwest side of Ann Arbor, in the Maple/Miller area. It is relatively inexpensive compared to the rest of Ann Arbor, but still within bike ride distance of campus. When we moved back to Ann Arbor in 2012, we were able to rent a 3-BR home there, within walking distance of Haisley elementary, for not much more than a 2-BR apartment near campus. Housing values have gone up a bit since then, but it's still a good bang-for-your-buck.

When a user hails a car through Lyft, the user tells you a) where they are, and b) where they're going. Lyft/GM can make sure that they only send out the autonomous vehicles when the route between the start and finish points is well-mapped and navigable by our new robot overlords.
As techological capabilities and mapping data improve, they can gradually increase the variety of routes to which they send out the autonomous vehicles.

Just a reminder - looks like this account is still active.

(Is it just me, or has there been a sharp uptick in spam posters recently?)

The way the sheet arcs around behind him, it's like his rage has developed a gravitational pull that sucked the folder into orbit.

|27 weeks 3 days ago||Thanks for the reminder that this was happening.||
And good call on the $41.07.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||Ugh.||
Which is why I spent my remaining per diem at a bar on the Riverwalk before heading to the airport.
(What are they going go do, kick me out of band?)

I saw the Beach Boys 50th anniversary tour a couple of years ago. Unless his condition has improved dramatically, I doubt Brian Wilson will be doing much of anything on this summer tour.

You know, pronoun antecedent basis is a helpful thing.

|37 weeks 2 days ago||Spam, spam, spam, spam...||
In the comments for the "how close are we" diary, there's some spam from a user named JGZ59146. Looks like he's done the same in a few other threads as well.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||Beaten to the punch!||
I was about to say the same thing. See, for example, this profile of Ace. (This may also be the first public mention of Ace's ska band?)
Good idea, though. Might be worth re-starting, since there's been some turnover in the last few years.

|44 weeks 2 days ago||1963 Caddy||
When I was in high school (early aughts), my father and I restored one of these:
A 1963 Cadillac convertible. (This isn't the exact car, but it's the right year, model, and color.) I remember that the engine compartment was so big you could literally sit in it while working on the engine.
Driving that thing felt like steering a cruise ship.

Matt Hinton used to do an annual article on this topic, demonstrating that recruiting stars DO matter - players with better rankings are more likely to become all-Americans, get drafted, etc. Here's one from a couple years ago.

Now I know how it feels to be Internet Famous. I'll try not to let it go to my head.
|45 weeks 6 days ago||Too bad.||
I was hoping they'd name it The Terrarium.
