|1 year 5 weeks ago||house is on postage-stamp sized property||
Yes, lived in Beaufort, SC, and The Big Chill was filmed there, (partly because it is Tom Berenger’s hometown). The house; which was depicted as being on this massive plantation-sized piece of property large enough for a football game, is actually located on a corner in a residential area, surrounded by a swamp on other two sides and butts up to the road with iron fence on two sides. Amazed me how the cropped everything out for the movie.

Nah, keep it. It's perfect, kind of a retro-70/80's thing.

Isn't that TD #33, right in front of Lytle? Great Pic!

It would suck if we lost Jordan now. Yes, it would be a strong pull for them. Many 'M' big men have stated what a strong pull Jordan was to them.

I know we were in pursuit of this kid last year. Didn’t we offer?
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Strong QB pack for next NFL draft||
True. On the other hand it should be a strong year for QB’s next year (Manziel, Miller, Boyd, McCarron, Lynch and Bridgewater). Draft stock would probably increase the following year.

Truthfully though, there was that guy with somewhat UofM ties that actually was in the front office of one of Detroit’s sport teams, the Tigers I think, some guy named Bo-something. /s
|1 year 9 weeks ago||UofM – Ole Miss in Chicago||
With all the recent attention and recruiting issues from the state, I think a UofM – Mississippi game in Chicago would be just the ticket in a year or two.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Cell phone use = Irate passengers||
Am not an electronics guy, but friends in the airline industry inform me that near or current technology will allow cell phones to safely be used on aircraft in near future PHYSICALLY. There have even been initial discussion between the fed and airlines towards the ban removal. HOWEVER, the current sticky point is not safety but rather customer service issues the airlines would have dealing with 20, 40, plus passengers all engrossed in their phone conversations surrounded by others within a limited, confined aircraft cabin. Imagine sitting within a gaggle of teens all discussing their latest relationship issues while trying to wind down on a coast-coast flight; or someone so engrossed dropping F-bombs constantly near your kids.

Personally, I’d like it better than the Kraft Bowl. Football in December/January can get windy, wet and cold up here. Although when it moves to Santa Clara it should be warmer, but less to do than San Francisco.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Yep, not camping = Don’t want to go there.||
Yep, not camping strongly suggests he'd rather go someplace else.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Disagree||
Disagree. Could they both be lesser known players that develop, possibly, but there the similarity ends. I have been following their QB search quite closely. They got him as the 6th or 7th option after several others had turned them down for or favored other schools (Watson, Heard, Allen, Harris, Kizer, Darlington, Peavey). His offer didn’t even exist until the last two made their decisions. Stribling was offered long before we got bypassed by other DBs last year. Also, as I remember, a vocal group of us were worried that he’d use a spot a higher rated DB would need.

Really? Have also heard that some people think Columbus is a better place to attend school than Ann Arbor. /s
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Small dive, good food||
Also one of my favorite, a small local bar/restaurant in downtown Portland. I think it was called J's Oyster. Place was a local hangout on the piers between some massive very "touristy" white ship converted to Italian restaurant (don't go!) and the Harbor Fish Market. It was recommended by the locals and is literally that just a bar with great food. The view is nothing to rave about, just a row of tables along a window and U-shaped bar. Wife had a cup of lobster stew and a classic lobster roll. The stew, much like chowder, was thick, and full of large chunks of lobster. The roll had a toasted bun and large perfectly chilled lobster chunks. I had the seafood bouillabaisse, very tasty with huge chunks of sea scallops, clams, mussels, shrimp and lobster over just enough pasta shells. Last ate there a couple of years ago and still judge seafood soups/chowders/bisques against it.
Also, if you get a chance head up to Acadia National Park with a pair of hiking boots and if you are an art lover I highly recommend a quick stop at the Wyeth center-Farnsworth Museum, Rockland, ME and Olson House, in Cushing(of Christina's World fame) Wonderful selection of eastern painters including all the Wyeths, Homer, Inness, and Bellows. (Then you can always hit any of the "Lobster Pounds" on the way back. Had never had as large a lobster before.)
Edit: Yes, enjoyed grace and loved fore street also, but have always had a fondness for local divey places with good food.

Have a family condo in San Clemente, CA. In Orange County so the wife loves the shopping and I enjoy that it is just a short jaunt from San Diego or north to the sports in LA.
What is it with UofM dentists? My brother is one and also headed to vacation in South Carolina all the time. /s

It'll be the Pilots. /s
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Numbers matter||
Another factor of what is called a “pipeline” is being overlooked here. The high school has to produce a decent number of big time recruits over the years either by sheer size or prolific sports ability/coaching to get the reputation. CC, Cass, Harrison, etc. all get looked at as being pipelines while other schools don’t because they don’t consistently put out 1 or more quality 4+* each year. Several other larger schools that don’t have as a strong a focus on football (ie, Southeastern, Denby) or smaller schools that don’t consistently produce Div 1 talent (Riverview Richard, Lumen Cristi, DH-Robichaud.)
I submit there are numerous “pipelines” though not as notable, ie AA Pioneer, Inkster, Saline, Birm. Brother Rice, that though they may not have strong talent consistently; when they do they tend to head to certain schools (in these cases UofM)

Good point, and I'd suppose this is a bit OT.

Yep, could be well thought out, dual-purpose by a female SCarolina fan. Or not. /s

Yes, I can attest to that as I’ve been called one most of my adult life, eh. (and the shortened familial form is “Hose”. /s)

I’ll just chalk it up to you being in the know and roll with it. It works for me! /s
