To add a little to the awesome, the jersey he chose (yeah, I know - Teddy Blanks and Mark Snyder grumble grumble - but it's just the photo)...

Butch Jones looks rather chill there...

What's funny about seeing Bo and Brandstatter in the studio is that they both have connections to Ohio State - one because he was an assistant there in two separate stints, and the other through his marriage to one Robbie Timmons, longtime WXYZ anchor and Ohio State alum. Funny how life works, eh?

I don't know that it was quite one of those rare cases that you hear about where someone all but climaxes at the mere passing mention of, shall we say, mature subject matter or certain body parts, but that thread did get rather intense for an announcement of a first pitch and who was to be throwing it.

Among other things, Ranadive has talked extensively with Calipari about how best to deal with Cousins, and communicated with him about the Kings' first-round pick, center Willie Cauley-Stein, in Thursday's NBA draft, sources said.
I don't know....north of $10 million per year, control of the front office, the mayorship of Sacramento, a chalet somewhere in the Grindelwald outside of Bern, possibly a promise that he can be the next Duke of Northumberland and a chance to get the Wildcat band back together in a way and Calipari might talk. Might.
|15 hours 24 min ago||The Look...||
Yeah, the look when he was asked about the camps was pretty amusing, and I honestly don't know what sort of answer they expected out of him. As Harbaugh said, he's just out there coaching football, connecting with people. I would think the best reaction to the objections of the SEC's coaches is probably no visible reaction - after all, it must burn them even more that Harbaugh doesn't even seem to outwardly care what they think, and I like that.
|16 hours 37 min ago||Downriver Resident...||
As a downriver resident, I would like to point out that technically the term only refers to those communities in Wayne County which are south-southwest of Detroit. Once you get south of the Huron River's outlet into the lake, it's just Monroe County and the descent into Ohio. That being said though, about the most extreme thing to ever happen downriver was that it served as one of the larger inbound port facilities for bootlegging during Prohibition. Several homes from Ecorse down to Wyandotte still have false basements and the remains of docking facilities.

You can have articles written about you and make it work, like this guy:

I feel like I must give that mod speech again:
"The most fundamental principle of decent, civilized behavior is....don't break into my car."

I chuckled when I saw this reply. I wonder if Harbaugh would too....
|1 day 10 hours ago||Totally Deserved...||
Totally deserved - two players whose resumes speak for themselves - and great selections indeed.
What is that now, about 10 members from the 2002 Red Wings in the Hall?
|1 day 10 hours ago||Wow...||
According to police, Thompson pulled out a wooden board while Halley grabbed a small pocket knife. Thompson then walked away and brought back a 15-inch knife. He allegedly swung the knife at Halley, causing three lacerations across his torso.
Holy crap....and over the amount of spice in a gumbo recipe that wasn't their own, from from the sound of it. Absolutely senseless indeed. I will never, ever understand what drives some people to die on hills such as these, if you will, and commit violent acts over something so trivial.

The left-handed golfer is known for rarely shying away from a money match, and his affinity for sports gambling is no secret, either. In 2001, he was reprimanded by the PGA Tour after winning $500 from Mike Weir in the players' lounge at the NEC Invitational: Mickelson had wagered $20 at 25-1 odds that Jim Furyk would hole a bunker shot.
For some reason, I remember hearing about this back then but not thinking about it much at the time. As the article says though, he's put down larger sums on the Super Bowl and other events - it would be interesting to know exactly what the Tour's rules are in this area though, betting on sports that aren't yours.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Interesting News...||
But who will we have chanting the trusted old "Possessio Subtractorum" spell on the side of the court now? I admit that I will miss the speculation on what sort of sorcery specifically designed to turn any game into a 10-possession game for an opponent will come from his bench, what sort of hexes will be deployed to make sure all threes are contested, and the like.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Some Numbers...||
Some of the highlights from the box score:
Thomas Wilcher had 22 attempts for 74 net yards and 2 rushing TDs. The other rushing TD was scored, of course, by Jim Harbaugh, who gained 12 yards on 7 attempts on the ground. Wilcher's totals alone match Wisconsin's entire production for the day incidentally.
In the air, Harbaugh was 15-24 for 310 yards and 1 TD, caught by Gerald White. Of note, Harbaugh's longest pass that day went for 62 yards (I think McMurtry caught that one).

Your feelings if Michigan signs with Nike
This didn't seem to go very well.

|2 days 6 hours ago||Quick Question...||
So, should we run a little book on type of pitch and general location then? I am thinking Harbaugh is a fan of the "blow it by them" sort of fastball, maybe a little tailing action to keep it away from left-handed batters.
In all seriousness, I like that Harbaugh makes himself available for things like this as time permits. He really does like that contact with the community.

Liked the entry for Kansas:
You don’t become the largest producer of sunflowers by sitting on your ass. Or do you? Agriculture seems complicated.
The knock on Maryland's accent was amusing too:
To really understand it you should either read James Michener’s epic novel Chesapeake, or just start putting Old Bay on everything and developing an uncomfortably strong attachment to Cal Ripken Jr.

I will say, however, that I would have to imagine that most bagmen would not be so indiscrete as to use a medium which could be traced. Then again, these are the same people who drive around with team gear and decals all over their personal vehicle, doing things in public which scream "violation" sometimes, so maybe I am giving them too much credit.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Sometimes, It Works...||
You know, when I am working these storms, the relative lack of updates and subsequent activity actually work out for me in the few moments I have in these times to actually read and mod around here. That, and this tends to be a period where sometimes a new thread will not appear for a good 12 hours (late June into July), so it isn't all that shocking.

Considering the result of last year's game, would it not be more appropriate for Texas A&M to sell a shirt that was more...well...."OK, we think we've figured out this how to score on Alabama thing, folks." I mean, measured steps, right?
|3 days 4 hours ago||I Remember That...||
The A-Train had 3 TDs in that game, and I think Justin Fargas had the other one on the ground. Brady and Henson threw 1 TD each, but both were caught by David Terrell. I will say that it was a nice feel-good game coming off the Notre Dame and Syracuse ("Will someone for the love of Pete tackle Donovan McNabb?") games.

I am continuing on with the Blue Moon Wite IPA tonight, but keeping the actual volume of drinking to a minimum as more than likely I will be working tomorrow, at least for part of the day, now that we're officially in "storm mode" here in our service territory. The good news is that I get paid for the work at least, though of course at this moment I am not on duty (otherwise, the IPA could be an issue).
|3 days 12 hours ago||Good To Hear...||
As a lot of people said yesterday, there had to be another side to this - it simply did not sound like something Jim Harbaugh and his staff would do, at least not quite as it was presented by Pipkins' statements (though I can see Harbaugh suggesting the medical here - the injury history alone might give some pause anyway). It is good to see this coming from inside the program and from someone who provides leadership on the team as well.

...or those who are held in high esteem by most conventional measurements of relative regard as it pertains to recruiting. Either way.
We could use a WR yet in the class - I don't think, and I could be wrong, that we've got anyone specifically to play WR to this point (key word being "specifically").
|3 days 15 hours ago||Not His M.O....||
If the story had been about a recent rash of net thefts or someone who was hauled away shouting that Indiana's season had been rife with "moral victories" and he didn't care particularly what you thought of it, maybe that would have been more within the modus operandi of Tom Crean.
|3 days 17 hours ago||All I Can Say Is...||
All I can say is that Tim Biakabatuka had Longueuil speed, but of coruse he was a running back so it's rather different.
What I am rather intrigued to see is how being in the Quebec CEGEP system will mesh with the requirements for Michigan. I don't know that we've taken someone straight out of such a school yet.

OT - Opinions please
This one might be outside of even the offseason OT boundaries as asking for opinions on someone's singing seems like it crosses that "kiosk" line. Also, without the videos, it's impossible to give an opinion anyway.
