That would be an interesting thread topic. If Lloyd had a Signing of the Stars, what celebrities would be there?

Thanks for pointing that out. It's fixed now.
Yeah it will, but it's going to be interesting. I'm kind of interested in reliving the excitement of all the Flordia recriuts and such.

Glad I could bring it back for you!

History of England - the host is superb with his delivery and humor.
History of English - the information has often made my jaw drop as I drive. It explains so much of why English is the way it is.
Favorite fact: warranty and guarantee are the same word, same with ward and guard. One came from the Anglo/saxons, the other from the French. Same principle with William and Guillaume.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah that's true, and that's||
Yeah that's true, and that's kinda what I was getting at with Greg Banks. It really is difficult to evaluate them accurately, and it's probably a disservice to compare them to other players like this. In the end, you really have to feel bad for the guys in this group who stuck it out.
I had already forgotten that Mouton was drafted in the in the 2nd round.

I don't remember if I included the references in the last couple months, but several times, Brian has spoke about Dumars in the most glowing terms.

My apologizes to anyone who is superstitious and doesn't want the 2006 basketball season mentioned during this current season. Not going lie, it was on my mind a lot as I sat through Tuesday night's game.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone. I appreciate the encouragement!

I wasn't around then, and it seems a little murky, but I would put it at December 4, 2004. There are a few items on December 1 of that year, but they don't mean much, at least not now.
I wish I would have thought to start this last December, so it could have been covered from the beginning; maybe I'll have to go back and cover this time period at some point.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||I hope it will, and at this||
I hope it will, and at this point, that's my plan. December was pretty easy though, with less content to go through.
|28 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks! I forgot to mention||
Thanks! I forgot to mention in my post that I've enjoyed looking through past content, but it's more difficult now. There used to be an archives feature on the left side of the page, but that's disappeared.

A purportedly Michigan fan, from Omaha, playing with...Kansas?

I thought Vaught went to East Kentwood?
Edit: Apparently, I had a good thought... To be fair though, besides the high school and the basketball player, the only other Loy I'm familiar with is Myrna.
|48 weeks 21 hours ago||My family has a cabin in the||
My family has a cabin in the eastern UP, so we are up there often and know the area well. My wife and I really like that environment though, so we chose somewhere that was similar, but off our "beaten path". We rented a lake house right on Lake Superior in Lutsen, MN. We took food, and my wife did the cooking (I realize this sounds unrealistic, but she truly enjoys it). We went sight seeing a couple times (water falls, lighthouse), but owtherwise we were able to be seculded for about 6 days, very relaxing. Loved hearing the waves at night.
It sounds like your going right at the end of August/start of September. That's a great time for northern Michigan. It's starting to get a little cold at night, but you can still have some very beautiful days, the bugs have died down, and the lakes have had all summer to warm up.
Congrats and enjoy!

Thanks! That's so much better. I thought I would have to resize each in photoshop and then reupload them. I appreciate the help.

My apologies for some of the huge pictures. Hopefully the size is at least beneficial for better seeing the items on each page.

Swim lanes! I wonder if that's what Hackett had all the coaching candidates do. Harbaugh holding hands with Mullen who was holding hands with Miles, etc.

But at least they pay their taxes:
|1 year 24 weeks ago||I used to love Sean, but||
I used to love Sean, but haven't listened in a long time, mostly because of his Sparty love and he can't get beyond certain topics (calling teams "cute" and ripping the recruiting services). I think he needs an antagonist. That's why Killer was great, or Matt Shephard when he did updates on 1130, because they would say "no, that's dumb" and it would create a good discussion. Now he has a guy who has the exact same takes as Sean, so it's pointless.
I must say "skirts on sports" was a great segment back when Sean was on WDFN in the mornings (2008ish). Probably second to Jamie and Gregg's "Spousal Arousal" in terms of sports radio games.

|1 year 38 weeks ago||Has it ever come out this||
Has it ever come out this early? I'm pretty sure it's usually around 4pm on Wednesday and Thursday. I know that because it comes out when I'm trying to finish all my work that I've put off all day.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||State convention on Saturday||
State convention on Saturday (yeah I know, no politics. But I didn't say which parties' state convention, so there). However, the impeding birth of my daughter trumps everything, and very well may be what I'm doing this weekend (um...attending, not giving birth).
|1 year 40 weeks ago||Ohio seems likely to me. I||
Ohio seems likely to me. I can't believe they've never played before, but they fit the MAC mold of Bowling Green, Ball St. and the three Michigan schools that get played early in the year. And it would be an easy trip for them to make. It seems like they would be glad to keep those costs down.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||This sentence: "I think Ben||
This sentence: "I think Ben has really come along this fall. It's kind of all clicked for him and that's really exciting." makes me optimistic. I may not be remembering correctly, but I feel like the coaches weren't saying things like that the last couple of years, especially about the Offensive Line. Instead it was position switching a few days before the opender (Mealer/Barnum).
Kinda the same thing with Peppers mastering the Nickle and moving on to Corner because he can. For whatever reason, it sounds like players are "getting it" more this year. Again maybe I'm just looking at the world through "August" colored glasses.

How about Teric Jones? I remember him going from DB to RB to Slot and then back around again.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||That was surprisingly (and||
That was surprisingly (and refreshingly) honest. Yes, the offensive line had problems last year, so we're going to mention it and not pretend it didn't. Yes, everyone wants to see Peppers in a 'M' uniform so we're to show him and not try to treat everyone equally by showing some walk-on freshman (no offense to the walk-on freshmen).

If I were a Rangers fan I would be pretty worried if my team was scouting for prospects by using the Free Press.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Who is the last 'M' QB to||
Who is the last 'M' QB to come out of Ohio? Without looking it up, I can't think of a starter since Grbac, but I feel like I'm missing someone obvious. Benny Friedman would probably be the best, followed by Elvis; hopefully, Messiah can challange that list.
