|1 week 2 days ago||Especially with mixed drinks||
it depends on who makes the drink and how much they pour. If say my dad makes the drink, you're probably getting two+ shots. So you could say / think you had eight drinks, while actually drinking more.
Either way, if you've had more than one - maybe two with dinner - that should be your trigger for not driving. No way I'd ever get behind the wheel after 8.
|1 week 5 days ago||His marketing job is probably to monitor||
social media and try to spin it. He probably hasn't removed everything he was tracking from when he was in the brand machine in Ann Arbor.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Sounds like a mgblue.com||
launch of some type - new content - maybe they are revamping the whole thing.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Then your avatar||
will be out of date. :-(

I have a positive opinion of Mark Hollis, but starting the investigation before the institution can react in a natural protective manner catches witnesses before they can be influenced.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I only read the OP's post - not the entire article||
I took what he said as applying to all his players - even the smart ones - due to the time and travel commitment all of them have. Even a 4.0 / 1400 SAT type is going to have a lot of challenges and prioritization conflicts during a semester (e.g., a major paper or lab due on Monday and a major exam to study for coming off a Saturday night road game).
I think he did a great job saying this in an encompassing way.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly what I tell my teens at the dinner table||
If you are worried about privacy, posting stuff on the internet is like yelling it to the whole world. Once you've done it, everyone can see it. And don't assume those privacy settings actually work the way you think either.
If I were the OP, I would edit my post though and take the links out (no need to tempt the rest of us to be stalky without putting some effort into it ...)
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I can't decide on your Nelson analogy though||
was he more zone blocking or not?
He had a tendency to pre-brief his captains of the overall strategy, and start an engagement as one line of battle. He had attracted a set of smart, resourceful, like minded followers over the years, and once engaged they were to break the traditional formation, and engage where they saw the most opportunity: "No captain can do very wrong if he places his ship alongside that of the enemy."
From that standpoint I don't see pulling guard, I see zone blocking.
I'll give you the Essex (which is actually what the movie Master and Commander is modeled on), but the British blockade was more Alabama, versus a good high school JV spread team. We had a few athletes but no line. (Wait - that is what you were saying isn't it?)
As for O'Brian and Forrester - they both had books outside there series that were excellent as well. Forrester wrote one about WWII in the Med called The Ship that is excellent, and of course The Good Shepard. Anything by O'Brian is excellent, and can be read several times - especially on those trying days where you just need to escape to another time and place.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I actually appreciate your post||
Your intent was earnest and constructive.
Though it maybe should be META rather than OT .... /s
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Could a heavy PC environment||
actually stifle productive discourse on the underlying issues, especially from the "non-offended" point of view? Are only the "offended" allowed to have an open point of view in the conversation? Would not suppressing a point of view have an extending effect on the issue?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Almost all of them||
are white men so fair game
|3 weeks 3 days ago||OK||
Let's just overlook the supposed history of verbal abuse, and not call it domestic violence because she is his aunt and doesn't live domestically with them, would you not say she should be brought up on aggravated assault charges?
(Note: I am not commenting from what the law determines as domestic or not - just following Cold War's argument logic.)
|3 weeks 4 days ago||So you're not||
copacetic about this post
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, I like this kid already||
He gets Team.
Hope his linemen teammates benefit.
|4 weeks 19 hours ago||I was under the impression the rule is||
the coach (or university) can't take a picture with a recruit and post it or tweet it. The press, or the kids can do what they want. Which they are and Jimmy is getting great PR.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||How about:||
"The devil was in the house and came out from my mouth."
Guess that didn't work out ...
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Yes - there is an OK use of the word||
"The ignition timing in my Mustang is retarded, I need to adjust it."

Woodson in the Game
I am thinking all these guys had fans holding their breath in anticipation every play. I don't remember that watching Harbaugh.
|5 weeks 21 hours ago||I am not getting the OP's problem with the Maryland flag||
The design of the flag comes from the coats of arms of George Calvert's father and mother. While the flag was established in 1888, the pattern itself came from the state seal established in 1648.
It's not my favorite - but the history is interesting (and original) - making it better than many.
It has nothing to do with the stars and bars. Look just beneath it at Mississippi or further down at the not so distant past Georgia state flag for real stars and bars hate.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||No more||
Mr. Nice Guy!
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Their bow took some railings out||
Damaged our port propeller and cut through the guidance heads of two port facing harpoon missiles (this is where we were lucky - they didn't cook off).
They lost their starboard anchor which you will notice was lowered a bit to cause damage. It teetered on our fantail and fell into the Black Sea. They supposedly had some hull damage.
Was a tight hour or so after they hit us, but we continued the FoN passage. Was like a hornets nest.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||ˇˇThisˇˇ||
We were exercising freedom of navigation off the Crimean Peninsula, and the Soviets came out with much of their Black Sea Fleet and several combat loaded Hind helicopters and did this to us. A military law brief on the legality of what we were doing can be found here.
One of the Quartermasters Mates (navigation specialists) who was on Yorktown the same time I was connected on facebook a few months back. We caught up by phone, and in the course of a 45 minute conversation recalled three separate occasions we were lucky to escape alive from - none of our sea time was combat operations.
I don't understand why the Navy dropped the "not just a job, it's an adventure" campaign. For a 22 year old junior office, and an 18 year old kid from Trinidad, those were great times.

Athletic academic advisers knowingly steered athletes into sham classes to stay eligible to play NCAA sports for decades. If that is not loss of institutional control, I don't know what is.
The funny thing - if you go to the UNC Basketball Museum, and look at the Academic All American wall in the back corner of the room, the one diploma they have out is an AFAM diploma. You would think they would have swapped that out by now. Would have been funny to have a picture - wish I had taken one.

didn't match then either

|6 weeks 4 days ago||Why on earth would someone walk||
|6 weeks 5 days ago||It would be interesting to go back and look||
what controls Nike established during their first Michigan contract. I for one am not a fan of Nike owning the rights to Maize.
If we stick with Adidas - perhaps an increased level of control comes out of it (i.e., we keep Adidas, but they conform to our requirements better - and maybe replace their design staff with someone with a clue.)
|6 weeks 5 days ago||They'll have to wear||
down parkas or fur coats in the dugout
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Too much clutter||
Jon Falk must've been having a cow:
Ugly socks (versus plain old Twin City Socks)
Multi colored shoes
Compression shirts and sleaves with "Victors" or "Vallient", etc. in giant text
50 shades of maize
I guess the gloves are minor, but still cluttered up
Can't we have uniform looking uniforms?
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Understood - and Nike is a close second for football||
in his view. He also says basketball is clearly Nike.
Agree with the UA comment not being a brand for all other sports (except perhaps baseball). ND's UA basketball uniforms in the tournament were pretty ugly.
Then again, I am sort of like my Buckeye neighbor: all the other sports are nice, and is great when they win, but Football is what matters.
Nike is the best all around.
