|6 weeks 5 days ago||The rivalry from SW Michigan||
I really like the idea of this thread and was considering starting one myself but had the same worries as the OP. I grew up in Southwest Michigan on the Indiana border closer to South Bend than any school in Michigan. We had a lot of fans of ND which made the rivalry significant growing up along with the fact that Michigan was at its peak of success in my lifetime and ND wasn't that far removed from their own recent success in 1988. I grew up watching the great battles with Desmond and the Rocket providing great early season fireworks and the ND hype of will Ron Paulus (spelling) and will he be the first three time Hiesman winner. Now having been away from Michigan for what is essentially my entire adult life galvanizing my Michigan loyalty and fandom I think it really sucks that we are going to not have this game anymore. I am about to make the four hour drive from my house in Georgia to my childhood best friends house in South Carolina and we will see the last chapter in this rivalry and have these moments solidifying the fact that ND is the worst neighbor in the history of neighbors and know that our win will be a nice final twist of the knife in their jealousy of why we are better.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||maturity sometimes comes with maturity||
I was 24 years old and had already spent multiple years of my life overseas in defense of our country and still managed to make mistakes that I would probably be burned at the stake for on this board if I played football for Michigan. If it weren't for people that saw potential in me I know I wouldn't be where I am today in life. While his next chance is not going to be at Michigan, I hope this young man the best and hope he learns from his mistakes and can use it for good, much like Billy Taylor was able to rebound.

If Coach Jackson had his way he would recruit him with the speed of Tyrone Wheatley, the moves of Jamie Morris, and the power of Leroy Hoard...except faster, stronger and with better moves.

he is probably just mad that they didn't hold out for what fisher can bring now that he has the clout of being a national champion head coach

I feel the exact same way for the exact same reasons but you said it much better than I think I could have.

Devin Funchess. If I understand tight end numbering correctly they can wear numbers in the 90s and he is poised to be a breakout freak.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Some more ideas||
I have used with success Honey and worcestshire as stated above. To go along with brown sugar I have started adding a little saigon cinnamon. I also have incorporated seasoned salt balance some of the sweet from the honey and a friend of mine incorporates apple juice into his sauce (primarily for chicken).

If rankings mattered we wouldn't give scholorships to long snappers. Thinking that every highly ranked recruit will pan out is crazy and with what we have left on the board at OL it might end up at three star level.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||O-line recruiting||
With how long it takes to develop offensive linemen I think it is imperative to pick up one more even if he is the three star type deapth player. You can more regularly find immediate impact players at skill positions but in the trenches development is almost always necessary.

I was at the end of the transition when the Fab 5 made it popular but it hadnt yet made it mainstream and I agree. Aside from that from an athletic point of view the short shorts are much more functional and user friendly....plus the ladies like it

How about a North-South alignment with either Nebraska, Ohio, or Penn State going to the North for competitive balance. My choice would be Ohio but you could work with any of them and have decent geographic alignment while also keeping many traditional rivalries, The biggest down side I can see is both Michigan and Ohio not having regular games in the added markets. Also, for competitive balance you could move Northwestern or Iowa for one weaker schools in the south.

I am not sure how silent it is due to consistent up votes to the 5 limit, but let me say that I applaud you for the way you have handled this situation to this point and believe you were completely justified and on the right track with how you chose to hanlde it. For the sake of people like me who primarily read and don't post thanks and keep up the good work.

I am currently in the area for work and am intrigued by this...but just for the sake of saying it wouldn't a Bloody Caesar be more of a Caesar's Palace kind of drink?
|1 year 52 weeks ago||Addiction?||
IMHO it seems more likely that Fitz has more of a I am young and make poor decisions problem than an addiction problem. Combine that with MADD lobbying our legislators into having unreasonably low BAC levels and you have a young man that made a mistake. Where I work when a young man makes a mistake the first thing he hears from any of us is that if doesn't become a habit it doesn't become a problem. Let's hope he learns from it and moves on.

I think the OP meant to say Mark Smith the Linebackers coach and was actually talking about post game press confrences?

Have you seen how often players run into the bench area during plays? We should keep him in the locker room.

|2 years 5 weeks ago||Michiganians?||
This is another one that is of contention. I grew up with it being Michiganders and never heard the term Michiganian until the History Channel started their history of states type shows. How long has this name been around? I am from southwest Michigan so is it regional to the state?
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Private Drive||
Based on your most recent link with the MSP Officer on the news clip saying you must stop I must at this time cede the argument to you. In the mean time I searched for the legal definition of a private drive. The closest I found on a cursory search was for a private road which really does not fit what we have been describing but had language that limited its use to the owners. The part that does fit is that it is incumbant upon the owner to maintain the area and the government was not responsible for its upkeep.
I think ultimately what is desired is that motorists travel in a safe manner and that they yield the right of way to on coming traffic.
I wonder whether being charged with this would hold up in court because of the lack of signs or other means to control traffic as well as the incosistent at best enforcement law and the vagueness that it is actually written.
