|1 week 1 day ago||Back in the bad old Freep stretch-gate days||
I seem to recall some confusion and concern as to what analysts were, and were not allowed to do - especially in contact with the players. Meanwhile Ohio Sate and Bama were like LOL WUT???
Michigan seemed to be painfully conservative for a few years, and then when Hoke and staff arrived it was OK to have analysts and openly talk about them again. Now, under Harbaugh, it is one of many areas to leverage for competitive advantage with enthusiasm.
I have no issue with Michigan doing this. In fact they should leverage every loophole while they can, since -- yeah -- no bagmen or free tattoos and Chargers. However, this is one issue we are on the "have" side of the equation, so best not to cast stones I guess.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Hmmm - slowest may be a battle -||
my dad's 1982 Nissan Sentra probaly would give the Jeep a run for it's money - but we'll go with cars really owned [all pics color, year and model approriate examples from the web]:
Slowest: 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon - 110 mph (will never sell it)
Fastest: 1984 Porsche Carrera - 149 mph (should never have sold it)
Honroable mention: 1971 Datsun 240z - 125 mph (if I hadn't sold it, it would be a rust pile, but wish I still had it)

to the microwave...
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Maybe he||
opened the door to take a whiz?
|5 weeks 3 days ago||If I read the story correctly||
she may or may not be a victim, and he may actually be the victim.
None of us know, or should judge, and we should remain open minded.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||My '08 JK is Rescue Green too||
Best experince so far is a three jeep father son camping trip in Maine with my cousin and his sons, and a freind and his sons. It's really cool to wake up next to a lake where no one else is.
And that YJ is not muddy enough!
|6 weeks 5 days ago||my older son is at Bama (for another market perspective)||
there it is one month deposit (at least on houses)
12 month leases with the place vacated for two weeks before move in
payment electronically for each individual renter (this used to be only one could pay electronically) or by check
the kids pay each other for utility shares via venmo
|8 weeks 2 days ago||My son went through this last summer||
Looked at all variety of scooters and wound up buying a Honda Grom (motorcycle). Another small city commuter option is a Yamaha Zuma 125 or maybe a TW200, or a Honda CB300F.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||The thing is the suites were pre-Brandon||
- the same with the Glick - Ed Martin's pantheon for The revenue sport.
What Brandon did was throw Brandon's gilded never, never land of non-revenue sports venues on top of it. That move seems less fiscally responsible to me - especially in the context of cable subscriber loss and possibly having to pay revenu sport athletes.
However, I get your point that much like Reagan, Brandon goosed the gas pedal just to put the lesser earning schools in a losing ground or ever increasing massive debt competitive position.
As for how this is reported - I believe the small profit the AD reported is after paying the loan payments. I also wonder if they take the massive Ross-type donations and invest them in trust to pay the debt payments rather than reducing the principle owed.
Either way, if I am Warde and his CFO, I am keeping Ed Martin and Jim Hackett on my advisory board (And Glick and Ross as well).

Now that an MSU player has put Ole' Miss in jail, the code of silence is broken, so it is in 'Ole Miss' best interest to reduce their sentence by betraying everyone they have dirt on.
|9 weeks 23 hours ago||I agree, but||
The News and Observer would not let go of the UNC issues, and they still haven't been really hammered for it. Everyone knows UNC kept athletes eligible through fake courses. Nothing really has been done.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Hey - you raised your son right||
at 16, he knew there was no way in hell he wanted to move to Columbus.
Nice job Dad!
|10 weeks 3 hours ago||Like the day after the Johnson hello post||
Oh - Harbaugh is going to hire a QBs dad as a 10th position coach - well we better block that.
/s but not really
|10 weeks 1 day ago||There callin' the cops man||
put the piece away
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Having driven a cruiser||
2500 yards astern of the bird farm in lifeguard station for countless hours, I am sure glad they tested with those trolleys as well, or we would have been a lot busier picking you brown shoes out of the water brother.
Maybe New News gave them time to watch, but it's a testament to the people who build our steel homes at sea, that so many took the time to watch that exercise. It's nice to see what you build works, and it's nice to know that those that build it care that it works.
In sadder news, we no longer have a USS Enterprise in our fleet. I am lookin forward to CVN-80. (We need a new Yorktown too.)
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, but for everyone that goes on to a lucrative career||
there are the ones that are hot babes, I mean gifted athletes now that won't make it and deserve some share of the profits while they have their moment of fame.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||It's been obvious for many years||
the team is way too reliant on threes, and doesn't have the bigs to defend and rebound on a top team inside (heck, apparently any team), much less someone to take the ball into the paint and score.
Beilien's either boxed in by his own system reputation in recruiting or unwilling to change ... so the situation won't change without a change.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Looks at offensive line||
Scratches head while trying to figure out who's starting at 3 positions. Shakes head.
Maybe with two oline coaches, and a shift to zone blocking and spread plays, maybe.
But no - we still have a talent / age gap on that oline.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||My son did the sound production for Bama's||
Signing Day show so I watched it. It was two announcers sitting in chairs and talking from the Stadium Club. They interviewed some of the new players. No fans were present. No other entertainment. No former stars.
It was pretty boring.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah but it was OK||
Because it went to Cam's dad, and Cam didn't know about it.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I know it won't happen||
but I actually prefer this
|14 weeks 1 day ago||No - that is West Virginia||
and they are in the Big 12.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Sometimes I wonder||
if Saban is encouraging this "there's a chance" stuff in the recruiting sphere just to bait and embarrass Harbaugh.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||It's hard for the big uglies||
To do a lot of pull-ups. Think about lifting 300 lbs repeatedly with very long arms.
Makes me think of the 6 minute mile run "Throw a Bucket of Cold Water" section in Bo's Lasting Lessons.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||I was in school in the 80's||
the only memory I have of Yost is someone convinced me to go ice skating once or twice.
|15 weeks 2 hours ago||I thought #2 was||
consensual but he copied a secret video he had taken on her cell phone to another device and she found the original on her cell phone?
|15 weeks 23 hours ago||Yeah - I am very worried we are looking at||
a repeat of the year Gardner's ribs were turned to paste.
However, other teams seem to be able to put together serviceable young lines. Heck Penn State won a Big Ten Championship and competed in a Rose Bowl on two redshirt freshmen on the left, and a freshman and a redshirt sophomore on the right.
So if we could just have nice things for once ...
|15 weeks 1 day ago||I think the flood gates||
opened much wider after Cam Newton.
I don't think paying the players a salary would stop it.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Yes||
I miss the old heavy duty champion T's and still buy the regular simple MICHIGAN ones.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||I got the thin M hat||
the sizing runs maybe 1/4" small.
