in 2013, DG was speaking to the group and he stated what a hard time he had in leading the players off the field. Specifically, he said on game days, when a captain would be pumping up the other guys, DG usually likes to be by himself, listening to music, "getting into the zone". He has had a hard time being the guy who gets out there and pumps up the other guys, it's not his natural "thing".

Not really weird, but you can rent dune buggies and go riding on the dunes. It's awesome! We have taken our kids on this since they were 2 and 4. They just strap a car seat in the buggy. Super fun and super messy (sand everywhere). Also, the Whippy Dip right by Silver Lake Sand Dunes is a great place to catch sunset.

I went and re-read it and you're right. Not too shabby. I wonder what the other new benefits will be (it said new benefits would be rolled out closer to the season).
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Interesting||
We have season tix and my husband filled out the end of season survey and gave hockey a scathing review. Asked if the tickets were worth the money he answered NO, asked if he would recommend tix to friends and he answered NO. He filled in the open comments with his overall disappointment with the quality of hockey and the hockey experience. We do enjoy hockey, we have good seats, but they are really expensive, especially since the seasons have been disappointing. We kept them this year to help our priority points. It will be nice not to pay as much. Too bad the concession discount is only for new season ticket holders.

in 2013 DG said he had a lot of trouble being a leader, especially on game days because he often likes to have some quiet introspection before games. He found he was needing to be more "out there" and verbally supportive of his teammates and he found that difficult. Hopefully last season gave him more experience and he's better at it now.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||He's very jacked||
Much bigger than you would think. Not as tall as the O line guys, but very wide.

I feel like we never got this level of detailed analysis or amount of enthusiasm out of Borges. I know that may not make a difference in the long run, but I hope that enthusiasm catches on in the locker room. He spent a long time talking about how it is better to hold on to the ball and not get an INT and how it is really hard to impress this on the QBs. Hopefully it is sinking in with DG. I think having an actual QB as the QB coach will really help our QBs because he's "been there".
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I was surprised, too.||
I thought that I would have read something here about an additional official on the field. Interestingly, not every conference will have the 8th official, but Big Ten is one that will. I will be curious to see how if it changes the amount of penalties called.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||You're welcome.||
No mention of the socks.

with mental health and depression. There was an article on mlive (I know, the dreaded mlive) about his struggles with depression and mental illness during his time at Michigan. So I think he helps the current student athletes. He also mentioned that he helps with recruiting.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I think||
that everyone will be asking about this. I can't wait to meet Nussmeier - I bet he'll have a huge line for autographs.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Good one||
I'm curious about that, too.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I have gotten brain paralysis||
that's why I am asking for questions. I'm ususally so itimidated/impressed/awed that my brain doesn't work. See you Saturday!
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Ha!||
That's a good one. One year I ate lunch with Ondre Pipkins and he ate 5 hamburgers, 2 chicken breasts and a bunch of cookies for lunch! I couldn't believe the amount of food on his plate.

tell you how disappointed I was when we were told that it's flag football and not full contact. We played full contact 2 years ago and someone on my team broke her nose, so that was the end of that. Also, we wear normal workout clothes.
|8 weeks 22 hours ago||Bummer!||
I was hoping to meet you!

I won't forget!
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I want replays||
I know that I like having replays and so does my family. I am short, so sometimes I miss what happened and they don't replay everything in the staduim. We had a fan vision, but they stopped supporting it last season. It was great, you could get replays, stats, great plays from other games.
So, I guess DB is doing this for me.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||I did it||
My kids did the 1 mile and my husband and I did the 5 K. It was a little weird that the fun run was right before the 5 K - my kids didn't want to run alone, so my husband ran with them. He was already tired when we then went from the Big House over to State Street where it started. They definitely need to sort by speed or walking. It is so irritating to have a group of walkers 3-4 across in the middle of the road. Were they playing the Victors in the tunnel? I don't remember. They did in the past. Also irritating - you can't go on the field to get your child after the fun run. If my kids had run by themselves, they would have been a little overwhelmed looking for us somewhere in the distance.

Who was this elite group of men that got to meet the new O-coordinator? How do I get my husband into this group?
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Demographics||
I know the demographics of this site. I thought people would definitely notice that information.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Same shot||
It's the MMR, which is not just a random collection of letters but stands for Measles, Mumps, Rubella. Mumps is not a laughing matter. It can affect your testicles, causing inflammation and sterility.

Check out Mark Torregrossa on mlive. I know everyone hates mlive, but this guy is really good and he gives great scientific explanations for all his predictions. This week he had a really interesting article on the ice cover of the Great Lakes and how that is influencing our weather. For the storms this winter, I have found him to be the most accurate. I suppose you could follow him on twitter if you don't want to go to mlive.

Board offer something like "you can withdraw or we can expel you" as an option? If so, it may lower the number of expulsions. My undergrad would offer that option.

If it's good enough for the Norwegian curlers.....
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks||
For points 8 and 9. I have been so angry about this all week. I'm so pissed of at Gibbons and Lewan for alleged behavior, I could punch them in the face. It would be great to see the athletes (not just FB) participate in sexual assault awareness.

They have a lot of really old guy stuff, you may want to try there. I always threaten my husband with the golf pants that have tiny Ms all over them.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Yes||
More offices should allow it. Stuff happens and sometimes you can't always have a sitter available.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||How true.||
It's lost a lot of luster for my kids since they have to sit in my office on snow days when we can't find anyone to watch them - like a few weeks ago and tomorrow.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Funny that you mention that||
There was an article today about snow amounts. A2 is almost up to the entire winter average snowfall and so are several other cities. But the UP is down from usual. Here is the article:
Even though it is down, it's still a lot of snow!
