I once tried to return serves from Ivan Lendl. The first one hit the fence behind me before I could even react. I vowed not to let that happen for the second one so I tried to anticipate it... of course I went for the forehand as the ball cruised past me on my backhand side.
There is a reason they are pros and most of us aren't. Just because they make it look easy, don't be fooled.

I do think that is part of the reporter's point here - to show the ever increasing costs of big time athletics and how some schools like Michigan can afford it while others will likely struggle, especially if the ESPN money valve gets shut off.

My son did a project a few years ago where he compared the average distance acheived from using a metal bat versus a wood bat versus a plastic bat. He repeated the tests using both pitched balls and hitting off a tee. Then he researched why one material would be more effective compared to the others.

They are expecting someone else to reply with the "i - O".
Sort of like when a Michigan fan types, "Who's got it better than us?" and is expecting someone else to reply "Nobody."

Thanks for posting, that was great. Let's hope there are more memorable great scenes to.add.from Saturday's game. Go Blue!

He's a member at Augusta. Not sure how that came to pass but he is definitely well connected.

I haven't seen the film yet, but that clip is hilarious.

I believe this has happened on a few other occassions as well this season, which is pretty amazing.

Chewbacca. Would help us open up recruiting with Wookies.

I think they were sitting in the free Taco Bell student section.

Was that the old Virgin store? If so (and I think it is) then this is probably the right move... huge huge space.

All of these above are great answers and a lot of really positive surprises which bodes well for the future.
But, really... there is absolutely no way anyone saw this kind of performance coming from AJ Williams. Heck, I thought he would be surpassed by Hill and Bunting and wouldn't even see the field this year. He has been a phenomenal surprise this year.

The refs were terrible and definitely kept PSU in the game.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Happy Friday||
Heading to the airport in an hour to fly back for the Rutgers game.... I'm very excited!
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Not that this will matter to||
Not that this will matter to most of the people here... but he lives near me and I see him all the time around town at restaurants and movies, etc. He is always very nice, is always happy to talk about Michigan with me, and has said "Go Blue" on several occasions.
I do wish he would be more public about this, apologize and move on though.
The Fab 5 was a cultural phenomenon and for a brief while Michigan basketball was the epicenter of the basketball world - their impact is still felt today. It would be great if they were welcomed back into the fold, but he does have to take the first step.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Right. This is their Super||
Right. This is their Super Bowl. No matter what has happened up to now, they'll be ready. Should be a great game and for the first time in a while, I feel like we're in good hands heading into it.

I have to believe this will only help what should already be a great recruiting weekend.

I had a Kobe steak in Tokyo last year. Hands down the best steak I have ever had - same goes for the entire meal. Thank goodness I wasn't paying though, price was outrageous.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Agree on Daredevil||
Especially when Frank Miler was writing them... absolutely the best. Elektra, Bullseye. Really disappointing that the movie was done so poorly, but those are absolutely great characters.
But overall, just about anything Frank Miller writes is awesome... The Dark Knight was great.
And I also loved The Punisher growing up.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Agreed||
I wear my football heart shirt all the time and people always stop me to ask about it. When I tell them about the project, the first thing they ask about is how they can contribute...

Great post, really nice tribute. I hope you are able to share this with his family.

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue!

Perhaps a non sequitor, but I was watching the World Series and they were talking about Ned Yost's relationship with Dale Earnhardt. The money quote was when they were talking about how Ned asked Dale who his friends are in the Nascar field -- answer is "none." The point being was that he was out to kick all their asses so he didn't want to be friends with any of them. Kind of harsh, but also the type of competitor that I think Harbaugh is and that I think we need.

Wish I could watch this one... don't carry it down in the South.
In any event...... whatever happened to the drinking threads?

|2 years 29 weeks ago||I'm with you||
Each year for a belated Father's Day gift, I arrange for my Dad and me to go to one game together (he lives in CT, I live in GA). This year we picked the PSU game. At this point, flights / hotel / tickets are all paid for so completely sunk cost.
But I'm really considering not going.
Really don't know what the hell happened and how the wheels have come off so fast. Hard to believe that a mere month ago, I was really excited about this season.
