|2 days 12 hours ago||I would like to just pause||
I would like to just pause and admire Jake Ryan's pure athleticism for a moment. He's 240 pounds and ran a laser-timed 4.65, and his vertical 34.5 inches. He's a freak, and the fact that he was only a "top performer" at the combine in the 60-yard shuttle means only that there are a few guys at his position even freakier than he is.
Godspeed, JMFR. You were a beast in Ann Arbor, and I hope to continue watching you be a beast on national TV for years to come.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Basically tackles are bigger,||
Basically tackles are bigger, and the bigger you are the harder it is to still be wicked fast and athletic. So great ones are rarer. Makes sense. Thanks y'all.
I'm still happy about Scherff, but maybe more because I'm happy we had a first-round pick at all. It's been a few years.

Thanks for doing this Brian. Gives some hope for the fall. At the very least we can be assured of decent competition for the starting gig, and if Rudock gets Harbaughed maybe we'll actually have a weapon on our hands! Summer optimism, commence!
On the throw where the ball ends up breaking the receiver's stride by a hair, looks like it was tipped by Northwestern #94. Bet it'd have been DO without the tip.

Ignore, was dumb post.

Correct on all counts. Except Kate Upton is also really pretty, I will stand by that. Not just boobs.

All this means is that I'm happy for Breshad Perriman. Going from two-star to first-rounder is pretty freaking awesome. Good for him.

She's beautiful and thin and has enormous boobs. What's the mystery?

That was almost 20 years ago. Current Nike >>>>>>>>>>>> current adidas.

Thanks for the writeup Seth, pieces like this are a big part of why I love MGoBlog so much. Especially in the football-starved offseason.
That said, MUST DESTROY AUTOPLAY AD WITH NOISE. KILL IT WITH FIRE!

Yep, they pick 23rd. I'll double down: If the Lions pick Funchess in the first round, I will eat a lemon and then drink the juice of a second lemon.

4.47, add ~0.2 because it was hand timed, pretty close to the equivalent of a 4.7 at pro day. not a burner.

Kentucky Derby and it's not close.

if he goes in the first round.
|6 days 14 hours ago||I will preface this comment||
I will preface this comment by saying that disaster preparedness and response is my field, although my organization doesn't work in Nepal and won't be responding to the disaster there.
1. If you feel moved to donate, please donate cash and do not even think about donating material goods or food.
2. A donation to the Red Cross (ARC) can be great but they are comparatively flush and have a huge national donor base. That's not a knock on them or against donating to them, they do great work and I respect my colleagues there a great deal. However...
3. If you want to give to a responder where your contribution could make a bigger relative difference, consider donating to a smaller NGO. FWIW, I'm going to donate to Handicap International, because they are one of the few organizations I know of that prioritizes mental health post-disaster. Disasters can be traumatizing and things like occupational therapy, especially for children, are extremely important to a community's recovery and are very often neglected in response.
4. EDIT: I realize that others have already posted links of orgs to donate to. Here's another list of US-based humanitarian organizations responding in Nepal*: http://www.interaction.org/crisis-list/interaction-members-respond-nepal...
*Which for some reason doesn't include Handicap International; as soon as I finish this comment I'm going to find out why that is because I know they're responding.

God, what a shitty schedule. Thanks Delany/Brandon for the MSU-OSU-same-year bullshit.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yes, but||
ALL of Nike's designs are better than adidas. Not just their uniformz but also their general shoe and apparel designs are more attractive.
Deadspin posted something about this but basically Nike destroys all other brands in preference among teenagers, and that's because their shit looks cooler.

...and Cal? Like, the University of California, Berkeley? He must really like the colors because otherwise I don't see how Cal could be competing with Michigan from a basketball standpoint.
|1 week 5 days ago||I like this one not least||
I like this one not least because it seems like we've been going head-to-head with them for a bunch of recruits recently. Chris Clark is the one that jumps immediately to mind but my brain feels there have been others.

My prediction is that he looks at this thread, sees this comment, and decides to retire from basketball and leave the University of Michigan to try his luck as a gold prospector in the Yukon.

Lack of "/s" gave me momentary hope that this was true, and my heart filled with song because I do hate the Eagles and that would have been hilarious.
Then I realized that the "/s" wasn't necessary. And the song in my heart died.

Champs lookin' pretty happy with that trophy. Congratulations to them!
|1 week 6 days ago||FWIW I looked at New American||
FWIW I looked at New American Pathways' 2013 990 and there are no red flags. Salaries for top staff are super reasonable, no board members are compensated, overhead/fundraising expenses are low. I can't speak for the quality of the work, obviously, but financially they look good.
Donated $28.24 in honor of M's win over Staee my senior year. Yes, the day I arrived on campus for my senior year was the day of The Horror.
