My roommate plays basketball in a pretty competitive local rec league. He guarded Walter McCarty the other day. Said he was bombing 3's and going probably about 60%.

You're right that no player would skate off in that situation or just lay on the ice. Hockey players are tough and accountable to their teammates. Saying he is just standing there isn't recognizing how much effort it took just to get up and wave his stick around. The picture is comparing hockey to basketball in terms of toughness.

He could have skated for the bench right away. He got his stick on a pass too so he wasn't just standing there.

Hoke is awesome but let's not completely discount or forget that the recruiting boom coincided with our stadium renovations which were absolutely spectacular.

That was a funny comment. It made me laugh, I admit. In part because it was a funny comment.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I was most likely to succeed||
I was most likely to succeed in my high school class (albeit a class of 62), and had really solid test scores. My grades, for the most part, were underwhelming.
I applied early to Holy Cross. Growing up in Central Mass I'd always had a great deal of respect for that school. I also applied to Villanova, BC, Lehigh, and Fairfield. I was deferred to regular admission at Holy Cross and ultimately rejected. Villanova and Lehigh placed me on waitlists that I never got off. BC flat out rejected me. The last school that I heard from was the school I wanted to attend the least, Fairfield University. Thankfully they accepted me. I always think that if my late father wasn't an alum I might not have been headed to any college in the Fall of 2001.
I'd like to say I learned my lesson and got really good grades at Fairfield but I basically mirrored my high school career of underperformance. I'm ok with that, I guess. Some people just aren't good at being students and I was one of them. Either that or I was lazy. I started out as a math major because calulus came easily to me. Eventually I realized that the more abstract courses were going over my often hungover head. I switched to Econ because it left more room for bullshit.
Things went pretty well for me in Southwestern CT. I'm glad that I got to share a common experience with my father. We had a lot of fun rooting for Fairfield hoops together and Fairfield football before they cut the program when I was a sophomore. When I started following Michigan Football religiously I had a moment of regret for not applying to UM. Then, I did some research and realized I likely wouldn't have been admitted there either.
I wish 18 year old MAgoBLUE could have read this post and seen that things worked out ok. Despite my lack of preparation the college search was important to me and I took myself pretty serious back then.

I never had anyone to indoctrinate me into MGoCulture. I learned everything I know from the internet - mostly MGoBlog. In a way, all of you are my Lou and I thank you!

Ohh ok I didn't notice that until now. That is pretty funny.

Ace made a GIF after the Florida game of the Gator mascot looking up toward the rafters in disappointment. I thought it was a funny moment and not in poor taste to tweak the Florida fans a little bit.
However, after the Syracuse game he made a GIF of the Brandon Triche charge that he called, "RIP Otto the Orange". That was obviously a huge play and it's nice to have it in GIF form but it was just a 50/50 call that went our way and didn't have anything to do with Otto. I just thought the title was unnecessary and a little inflammatory.

I followed everyone who mentioned their handle. I'm @Tim_de_la_Page. My account is on lockdown mode so send me a follow request. I need more followers. Feels like I'm tweeting to myself on there most of the time.

Right now a Nantucket Nectars half and half. Later beer. I'm inspired by the woman I saw outside of Mobil on the Run drinking a Corona and hanging out with her pit bull. Although I must say I will choose a better beer.

You're going to be frequently disappointed if you use Texas as your expectation for national football fandom. Especially in comparison to Connecticut. Now women's basketball on the other hand. . .

I'm not ready to say he'd be the best player in our secondary. McCourty has shown some things at safety and Talib is a very solid corner on the field if not off the field. But yeah, Kovacs could certainly make the team.
