Has updates on game watch sites, tickets, buses to games (such as UConn), etc.
|39 weeks 2 days ago||'Decisions' sign above||
I can't tell if that is a joke or not. It looks like one of those optical illusion things that, at-a-glance, tricks you into reading "Honestly, treat women with no respect. Drugs. Stealing. Weapons."

I thought the Ross (was it Ross?) hit on Colter was similar but even better, though they got a first down on the play. Someone should GIF that.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||It makes sense (whether or not it is true)||
Staying an extra year in college does not help your draft stock. If you intend to be a professional athlete, it makes sense to start earning as early as possible because your productive years are obviously limited. He's not going to be 6'6" in two years, so he might as well start now.

I haven't read this many good puns since Nutt replaced Dick with Johnson for the Hogs.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Detroit, Oregon||
Search 'South Detroit' on Wikipedia and it returns 'Downriver.' I believe Wolverine318 to be correct.
Alternatively, it could be the Detroit in Oregon. Per Wikipedia (again), all the Journey dudes seem to be northern Californians / San Franciscans with no connection to the midwest (save one guy who was born in Chicago and moved west later). Detroit, OR is closer to San Fran that Detroit, MI, so maybe that's what they meant.
Finally, there is a borough of Quezon City in the Philippines called Detroit. Several of the members of Journey are of Philippino descent, so that, too, could be it.

Steam has a sale on that every few weeks. I recently got all of the expansions (except for the newest one) for < $10.
It's decent, but more of a world simulator than a game. You just kind of do stuff and see what happens. You can't really take over the world and kill everybody like in, for example, Civilization.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||They are still in terrible||
They are still in terrible shape, of course, but at least there is A PLAN. The budget is getting balanced (by harsh but necessary means), schools are being consolidated, and federal stimulus funds are being invested the the district. It will be better to have fewer schools with more students if it enables the district to provide a safe environment for teachers and students (and working clocks, plumbing, etc.). If Bobb's plan can at least lead to financial stability for the district, economics will take care of some of the overcrowding issues in the long term.
These aren't immediate solutions, but the steps being taken are aligned with the consolidation of the city itself, which is a positive sign because it demostrates communication among different departments in the city government. This is in contrast to the prior administrations where nobody - the public and the administrators - knew what was going on. Also, current developments are happening under the watch of federal and state governments and the general public, which will stem some of the corruption that led to the current state of affairs.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||I was being sarcastic about||
I was being sarcastic about the commercial, but not the renaissance. At the very least, I think rock bottom is behind us. The big three are paying dividends and giving raises, buildings are being renovated, the school systems seem to be making positive progress, the presence of the entertainment industry is growing, property value decline has tapered off, and Kwame is in jail.
Also: The Lions look like a playoff team for next year (if there is a next year) and the Tigers should win the central.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Surely that Chrysler||
Surely that Chrysler commercial with Eminem will be the catalyst to restore Detroit to greatness. We are on the cusp of a renaissance.

I think it would be a good way to launder money to pay players. If I were rich, I'd have a go at it.

There currently IS NOT a riot in East Lansing.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||All the more reason to do it||
All the more reason to do it NOW. If we can get Jamaican and Brazilian pipelines, and some O-lineman and backers from Oz (with a little help from Russell Crowe) we can reap the on-field benefits and spread our brand across the world.

Just to clarify, I was mentally excluding Canada. It's basically the 51st state.

But at certain positions, athleticism is so much more important than experience.
Also, we just beat State. Nice.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Forecast: Partly crashy||
Partly crashy during the evening giving way to heavy system crashes after midnight. Cold. System crashes light and variable. Chance of system crashes 40%.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||My PC got destroyed by a||
My PC got destroyed by a virus on Saturday morning. At the time, I had not opened any local programs and had only visited this site, weather.com, and amazon.com. The virus was a very obviously fake anti-virus tool that took everything over; I couldn't open any programs, not even notepad, so I couldn't run any scans or even restore my backup image (That was my ultimate solution, but I needed to boot from a repair disc).
If there's anything I did to enable it to execute, I don't know what it was. FWIW, I was using Chrome at the time and didn't get any warnings.
In conclusion, back up your systems regularly.

|3 years 14 weeks ago||The Puppetmaster?||
It is common in history / fiction to have a character to maintain a position of apparently modest power through multiple regime changes when more prominent figures are being exiled or beheaded or whatever. I present this as an analogy to Fred Jackson.
Could it be that Fred Jackson is the U of M puppetmaster, pulling the strings from the shadows whilst bigger names take the fall?
Dave Brandon should write a book called: "Yes I Can... If Fred Jackson Says it's OK."
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Designed running plays||
I noticed while watching some of the recruiting / transfer / coaching-search interludes (aka "games") that he often had the most running room when he dropped back to pass in earnest.
Thus, I think that the best option for conserving his health - and the one that would yield the most YPC - would be very few designed runs and lots of actual passing plays with a run option.

I think it was the fake one, then. She had replies from other newspaper people, so I assumed it was her.

Tweeted "gruden to michigan has legs, les miles still frontrunner, dick jauron darkhorse." or something like that.
I know this isn't the thread topic, but I don't know where to put anything anymore.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||None of this matters until||
None of this matters until signing day. If we can get a NAME coach in the next few days, we have a good shot at getting Frost and Lyons. Here's hoping Gruden is sick of the worldwide leader.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Panic mode?||
More like critical condition. And not the fake critical condition where they say "critical" but really mean "bad, but likely to survive" but like 50/50 that the program will die and be reborn as a Purdue analogue (if that hasn't already happened).

I thought maybe "coaching change." Dunno though.

The best friend of the brother-in-law of the former University of San Diego AD knows the sister of one of the organizers of the under-10 girls T-Ball league in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. Supposedly, he's already agreed to a 3-year deal worth $3.5M quetzals, plus .08% (pre-tax) of the region's cobalt exports and a thatch-roofed hut.

Most of Juarez is on Google street view. It's kind of interesting to look around, if anyone is bored at work.
