Do they check the pressure of all the balls after all the games? Maybe they should. Maybe it's happening and we don't know it. Could be an interesting study. I think the refs should be spot checking between quarters.
|6 days 15 hours ago||People don't understand||
because of conflicting information. Some reports say that the balls provided by the home team (12 game balls plus 12 back ups) are used first. Then if those aren't good, they go to the visitors balls and that the refs have to report every time they use one of the visitors balls. So, who is right? The people who yell the loudest?

How long of a field goal you could make with a helium filled ball? The more I think about this, the more I think I've seen a Mythbusters on this....But I can't remember how it turned out.

Does he bring enthusiasm unknown to mankind with those nuggets? That would have a lot of people interested.

Shit! Who am I going to ogle at Football Academy! Damn you, Leslie T, for getting my hopes up!

I don't know... Seems like he's a bit over rated. We're going to have to see some abs. I'll report back after Football Academy.

I love Boliver's avatar, mostly because I love Will Ferrell, and we always need more cowbell!

We are yelling and screaming and jingling our keys at the same time.

That's an unpleasant surprise! Glad I never got hit with one of those!
|3 weeks 16 hours ago||Yes||
We still jingle our keys and people look at us strangely.

Iowa City has a robust Mormon community. One of the major roads in town in Mormon Trek Boulevard, as it was on the way from Illinois to Utah. It is very close to a major temple in Nauvoo, Il. Many of our good friends from IC are Mormons.

You will name your child Kirk for 2 reasons: football, and because Riverside, Iowa, the future birthplace of Captain Kirk, is just a short drive from Iowa City. You will then attend Trek Fest annually and love it!
|3 weeks 4 days ago||We laughed about this with some Iowa friends||
When we met up with some iowa friends in November, we were complaining about the state of Michigan football, and they were like, "You guys complain too much, you'll be fine, just ride it out. Maybe Michigan will be like Iowa and give Hoke a raise." They are not happy about the situation, but realize they are stuck.

make sure you have an experienced person take you shopping for the proper warm clothes in advance - it really will make a difference. I used to hate winter, but now that I have proper clothing for cold weather, I love being out in the snow and am quite bummed we don't have good snow yet.

We need a 3rd down coordinator that isn't Mattison! We are terrible on 3rd down.

Are young enough that their sons are in elementary or middle school, so it does narrow it down a bit.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||We'll be there!||
I'll bring the Maize Boys and maybe a Maize Nephew, too. It's a fun place.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Sounds great!||
Depending on the time, if you choose 12/26, I will bring my kids and maybe my nephew, too. Before noon would be great, if people can be up that early.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Only one big problem with IC||
The terrible smell. Trust me, I've lived there, it smells like farm. Otherwise, it's like small, old time A2.

I would like to get kayaks for the family, but hubs isn't sure. We've been looking at kayaks for months, but he doesn't want to pull the trigger.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Same boat here||
Drives me crazy! It's not a race! Just take your time and double check it. My son is not a double checker. Ugh...
|6 weeks 6 days ago||M gear is out of control, too||
I have to do a blue load of M gear twice a week and a load of yellow M gear twice a week. We have certainly brainwashed our kids!

I thought it represented this FB season and part of 2013 as well.

My kids are figuring out what they are getting for Christmas from the banner ads. I have to start doing some fake online Christmas shopping to throw them off the scent.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I don't know||
I don't know Brady Hoke as a person, only as a media figure. Maybe he is the guy that could go in after being fired, say nice things and not be bitter about losing his job. I think any organization would really be hesitant about bringing a recently fired employee back to give speeches about other people - it will be awkward, uncomfortable and you never know who is going to go nuts and say things totally inappropriate. I think even if he isn't fired by then it will be awkward and uncomfortable.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Wondering about this||
I have been wondering about this as well. On the one hand, you don't want to let him hand around and get a public forum for an impassioned plea to stay, but on the other hand, don't you want someone who knows the kids and can say something nice about them? It's not like you can fire him and say, "Come to the bust anyway and speak nicely about the kids, but don't say anything about being fired." I imagine that right now, Hackett and Hoke are working out the details of his departure and it will be very much like DB's departure, in that Hackett will say, "Brady and I have talked and he came to the conclusion it's better for the team if he leaves." When this will happen, I don't know.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Craig's List||
You can always go the Craig's List route or, if you know someone who wants to buy, you can do an online ticket transfer. That's what we do when we can't use our tickets. Any cash that gets exchanged behind the scenes is unknown to the AD. The big problem is that during the RR years, the Club Seats could be on Stub Hub and the last few games, the Club was totally overrun by opposing fans. This was not very nice. So it's still possible to sell them, just more difficult.

Kenny Allen, the back up punter is very good. I think he will do a very good job.
