Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

You do realize that for like 4,000 years, all music was performed live, right? And people seemed to like it enough to keep doing it.

400? Psht. My reception had at least 2,000 (though I have over 5,000 FB friends).

Assistant: Coach, it's 4th and 1 from their 40. Should we go for it?

This series has completely jumped the shark. The Dorne fight scene would have been at home in an episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Anchorman. Truly contrived, horrible television. It's such a far cry from the first three seasons that it makes me think that the whole cast of writers and directors had their faces removed and hijacked by a band of 15-year-old boys. It makes me feel bad for the original actors, more than anything, since they've shown what they can do with quality scripts (Kit Harrington excluded, of course).

Haven't read it since Stretchgate. Might never again.

I don't understand: why has Frank Clark's potential not been tapped?

Except that those guys vastly, vastly underperformed at Michigan the past two years. They were drafted where they were based on their physical attributes and their talent. Devin Funchess is a freak of nature--tall, strong, and athletic. Frank Clark and Jake Ryan have an unnatural combination of size and speed. The fact that contributed so little at Michigan the past two years is just a further indictment of Hoke.

Just makes you wonder how many other guys who didn't transfer out of the program under Hoke would have made it to to the NFL.

Relax. We'll all enjoy Harbaugh football just fine, but the truth is, most recruits end up at a school that's heavily in the mix around this stage of the process.

Sounds about right, if you ask me. Not sure what the surprise is.

Job interviewer: Alex, tell us about a time you had a conflict with a previous supervisor and how you dealt with it.

His whole point is that "restaurants are under pressure to generate profit," just as you say. In AA, the pressure is for more Americanized food because there are more Americanized people. In larger, more diverse cities, there is pressure for more authentic food because there are niche markets.

Yes, they're gaining a massive competitive advantage against the rest of the Big Ten that really can't be swept under the rug. They've signed 20 to 30 more players than us in the past 4-5 classes, giving them fresh talent to plug in when other recruits inevitably don't pan out. When our recruits don't pan out, they still start for us.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, there was just||
Yeah, there was just something corny about this episode. Sloppy, trite dialogue and too much of it. Felt like a caricature of itself. Cersei is spiteful! Jon Snow is earnest! Brienne is honorable but full of self-doubt! Stannis is tough but fair!

Pretty terrible premier, if you ask me. I'm really worried about what D&D do with this now that they're off on their own.

Read recently that NJIT ranks higher than U-M in average professor salary. Hidden causal factor in basketball success?

Remember that one time, three years ago, when we landed the top-rated five-star defensive tackle in the country? Who's a senior on the team now? No?
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I really, really, really||
I really, really, really hope Kugler pans out. If you believe that teams are built from the inside out, then it would be pretty devasting for us to completely strike out on landing both the top-rated NT in his class (Pipkins) and the top rated center in his class (Kugler).

Saying Verlander is "above average" is too kind at this point.

I agree with you, in general, but it's uncommon for a guy to be coronated a starter at this point unless they were a star the previous season. We have no stars from the previous season, which is partly your point. But that doesn't mean that some guys are getting clear separation this spring.
