Each of these vignettes is high quality. By far the best off-season feature on the blog.

Is this when you first learned of your gift for politics?

|3 weeks 3 days ago||Outstanding series. This really should be front page each time||
it comes out.
In addition to the suggestion above to hear your story, I would love to hear the stories of some of the walkons like Mark. I lived in Alice Lloyd as a freshman. I remember one of the sophomores was a walkon member of the football team. He was an amazing athlete compared to the rest of us and his dedication to school and football was incredible. He was far more mature than my friends and me at the same age. I also remember his bruises. I have never seen bruises like that on another person's arms and legs! He just laughed it off and said it was part of being a human blocking dummy.
Thanks RYG for creating this content.

is time the apes and hominids stop libeling our suborder.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||"Can't Compare" and "Old Miami" are solid. You guys have a very||
original sound and are talented lyricists.

Don Brown confirms that you are doing dude stuff.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Each of these should be a front page post (and a Diary). A lot||
of readers on this site don't visit the diaries.
I almost missed out on some great content. All three of these are really well done. Congrats, RYG.

|8 weeks 6 days ago||Just about any older Mercedes SL. They are a bit fiddly at||
first. But, most owners eventually get them sorted out. They are very well built (like a brick shithouse). A few years ago, I was rear-ended in a 2000 SL by a guy who hit me doing 45 mph in a Buick Regal. I drove my car to the auto body shop for a new rear bumper and trunk lid. His car was totaled and towed away from the scene. I have owned an '83 380SL and an '86 560SL -- I wish I still had them because I think they are great cars with some appreciation potential in the not so distant future. Also, MB's are relatively easy to work on for the small stuff. As long as the electronics have not been issue in the past -- or the hydraulic tops on the more recent ones -- any money you put into maintaining the car should be realized when you try to get out of it.
Here is a 1995 with 140,400 miles for sale at $3,895. There are plenty of other examples.

last Autumn before a game.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||When you consider the quality of the DBs he plays against in||
practice, Chesson should be able to dominate "just a guy" DBs during the season.

Express. Roll Jim, Roll!

|20 weeks 5 hours ago||Excellent! Harbaugh performs best when he has a real adversary.||
Dantonio has gotten fat on RR and Hoke -- he is going to experience major suck now that he has poked the Harbear.
|20 weeks 10 hours ago||Agree. Also, the NCAA was in a position to impose||
restrictions of the camps rather than an outright prohibition. The NCAA overreacted and overreached. Ultimately, more coaches, parents, and athletes will come down on the side of Harbaugh.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Great writeup. It would be nice to see who fills the||
Money, Jaguar, and Tractor roles when Peppers is not on the field (e.g., when we are leading by so much in the 3rd quarter that it doesn't make sense to risk injuring him).
|25 weeks 2 days ago||One word . . . Juggalos||
|25 weeks 2 days ago||OP, in the post practice interview with Harbaugh, the coach||
said that Stribling caught more passes than the WRs/TEs/RBs. For his effort, Stribling was given the practice/game ball. The only mention of Stribling in the various tweets and summaries suggested he was getting beat badly --a bit of a disconnect for those of us trying to follow practice remotely.
For those of you there in person, was Stribling that dominant in coverage?
