|1 week 1 day ago||The Audible||
Not B1G or UM specific, but I like the Audible from FoxSports. Steward Mandel and Bruce Feldman are pretty calm and cover a lot of ground. It's a nice way to get a 1000 foot view on the country as a whole. Good guests (Nicole Auerbach, Dave Wandstadt, Joel Klatt) too.

Morris never put his helmet on or joined the huddle the entire game while most of the other qbs did.

Can we get an army of mgovolunteers to act as fact checkers on the next book? Bacon tells great stories, but the factual inaccuracies are distracting.

Nothing made me genuinly happier in regards to Michigan football in the last 4 years than Heiko's press conference coverage. Glad to see him show up.

|5 weeks 3 days ago||The errors in Bacon's books||
The errors in Bacon's books are really distracting and in my opinion really hurt his credibility. Three and Out had big factual errors and he has the 2006 stadium capacity wrong on the second page of the preface. I'm intrigued to know the backstory of all this, but it's hard to have much faith in its accuracy.

I bought Endzone, but I'm still a little skeptical of Bacon. After the factual errors in Three and Out, I've struggled to fully trust his reporting. I'm curious enough to give it a shot.

These are almost not worth posting. I imaging it has to be really frustrating to be one of those reporters. There will never be another Heiko / Borges...

The entire trajectory of the OSU game changed last year when he got hurt. Saying he's not in the same stratosphere of two guys he clearly outplayed last year makes no sense.

|8 weeks 15 hours ago||stretch||
To say they've all been one sided games in this stretch is going a little far. Other than Rodriguez's two trips to Columbus and the Chad Henne rubbar arm game, they have all been competitive games. Not denying the point that you have to actually start winning some of these games, but to say that the actual games have all been one sided is inaccurate.

Not that the exact thing would have played out, but I feel like Donovan buries the shot that Wondo missed against Belgium

Fair question, I am capable of changing a tire. But, with a rental, I felt like going into DIY mode wasn't the best choice.

I agree with you and the OP. Tweeting strangers with your opinion of what they should do is pretty insane.

Favorite Randy Johnson moment was when John Kruk was terrified to face him in the all star game.

There are two sides of this that are pretty easy to argue and have merit. I'd just say make sure you would apply the exact same logic you apply here to Nick Saban, Les Miles, Urban Meyer or Mark Dantonio.

Brighthouse in Livonia was awesome. I moved over to Northville and have gone through ATT and Wow and have not been satisfied.

Yikes. I have no problem with the players having fun and getting fired up. One of the worst things about baseball is all of the macho bs and unwritten rules. It's never cool to just be a dick to someone, but getting fired up when you strike someone out should be fine. If you don't want to get "shown up," don't give up home runs and don't strike out.

I hire for a job that has a very set starting salary. I don't think I'd pull an offer, but I would vs worried about my ability to keep someone long term who wanted that much more than we are offering.

I am with the people who brought up the western Wayne county area (Livonia, Northville, Plymouth). Good schools, easy location with access to AA, Detroit, DTW (and Dearborn). Your price point probably dictates doing northern Livonia or Plymouth township.

And I'm with you. Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore are classics. My wife and I still call the day that her People magazine comes "Nudey Magazine Day."

As I said, from a perspective of administrative cost. Not going anywhere near the political debate, just saying that the amount they spend on administration as a percentage of their overall budget is very low.

Trying to stay away from politics, but you're paying more to essentially subsidize people with low incomes and to bring the quality of insurance across the board up to a minimum standard (whether that is right or wrong is a whole different and substantially political conversation). Government run entitlements like social security and Medicare are actually incredibly efficiently run from an administrative cost standpoint.

All I remember MSA doing was passing resolutions about things they had no impact on, so the guy with the board seemed as well qualified as anyone.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||Point 1||
I actually would go the other way on point one. Not enough small fouls are called. If they called all the grabbing and bumping (especially off the ball) the game would flow more freely and there would be more of an emphasis on skill, whcih I think would make it a more pleasing product to watch.
