"But absolutely. You’re allowed to cross state borders in my America. And bring them to here! To bring them to one of the finest institutions in the world is an exciting thing to do."
Wow, that's some powerful stuff right there. Not only is he a heckuva football coach, the energy and enthusiasm (unknown to mankind - I know) that he brings each and every day has to be contagious. No wonder he's having such success on the recruiting trail and on the football field.

While I'm guessing he wouldn't have the unilateral authority to make those decisions that are likely to have a long term effect on the various UConn sports programs (like hiring and firing personnel), I'm guessing he at least has/had some input on this matter. Crazy world we live in.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Coast to Coast||
Harbaugh's recruiting skills are second to none. I am still surprised at how quickly he (and the rest of his staff) was able to expand our recruiting footprint to pull high level recruits from each of the coasts (and Florida, Tennessee, etc.). I also like the fact that he did not focus a ton of energy on the midwest during a year in which New Jersey and the standard recruiting hotbeds like California, Florida, Texas, and Georgia had a ton of highly skilled athletes.

Great story, thanks for sharing. It never ceases to amaze me to see and hear how truly special some (most?) of our faculty are here at Michigan. I firmly believe that more and more athletes will place an emphasis on the student part of "student athlete" when choosing a college, so the fact that we have such special professors on staff should only help the cause...and, of course, HARBAUGH.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Agreed!||
Completely agree. Those updates were crucial to keeping some type of sanity during this 2016 crootin' period.

There aren't enough scantron bubbles in the world that could handle a name like Oosterbaan Norfleet.

I just logged in to post the same thing. Of course he would have a wife that looks like that. Amazing.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Lower Level Seats||
What is the lower level seating capacity for the students? I have to assume it is at least comparable to the 1200 afforded to the Cameron Crazies...and we all know how loud and imposing Cameron Indoor is on game days.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Two thumbs of Laphroaig||
Two thumbs of Laphroaig (neat) to start, followed by many bottles of Russian River Blind Pig. Should be a solid night.
|4 weeks 1 hour ago||Perfect!||
Perfect idea. Seeing as those who are closely affiliated with a Harbaugh led program tend to move on to "better" jobs at a pretty rapid pace, we could do this year in and year out without fear of having too many coordinators and coaches.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Congrats!||
Huge accomplishment for him. It looks like we've found our future defensive captain to go along with our likely offensive captain (Peters). The future is bright...GO BLUE!

RichRod receives $360,000 in "other pay"? That's more than two times what the next closest coach receives. What gives?

Great points. Let's also not forget the loss of coverage on MSU's fullback resulting in the longest pass play of the game (and cutting the 9 point lead down to 2).

UM/IU hoops at Assembly Hall. Lower bowl tickets, under the overhang, made it impossible to see the scoreboard or, honestly, anything above the rim. Plus, the IU faithful are a pretty "interesting" bunch.

MSU - 55% (because I didn't think it through before marrying my MSU grad wife and noticing her irrational desire to live in EL); and
OSU - 45% (because, amongst other things, their fans poop in coolers).

Definitely a Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Not only is the gas mileage unbelievable, but where else can you find a car with a stock color that Adidas would claim is maize?
|33 weeks 8 hours ago||Morning's Featured Group||
I didn't get a chance to watch FoxSports1, but was able to stream the morning's featured group of Mickelson, Watson and Cabrera via the US Open official website. While the play of the golfers, and the views of the course, were fantastic, the color team of Tim Brando and Mark Brooks left a lot to be desired. It seemed like they were always at odds with each other (even down to the comments Brando made over and over again about lefties having a course advantage over righties which was likely due, primarily, to Brando being a lefty). Natalie Gulbis did a fine job and had a lot of indepth knowledge about the course and the types of shots required.

Yeah, that is an insane amount of crown moulding. Not the skinny strips either.

I was about to ask how the lawn crew manages to mow the grass on the island situated in the middle of the pond...until I saw the picture of the kayaks.

Double? It's Friday, let's make it a triple!

You couldn't because, you know, of the camouflage.

Selfishly, I just wanted to have the only kid in school to have a first name of Tshimanga.

Fowler's tee shot on the 4th playoff hole (#17) was nothing short of amazing. Great tournament!

Unless, of course, you are a teacher (which I am not, but many of my friends are)...in which case, a 3 month vacation is almost here and it's time to brag about it.

Being a glutton for punishment, I decided to watch the emedded video of Brown's workout...huge mistake. I guess it's now time to call it a day and do some day-drinking.
|40 weeks 5 hours ago||Well...||
this sucks. While it is alway nice to see us in the final group for these top tier athletes, my mental and physical health definitely takes a little bit of hit each time they choose another school. Oh well, I guess that's part of being a diehard sports fan.

But...but...but...what about the saying that the customer is always right?!?

A Maryland kid wearing Michigan gear is never a bad thing. It's even better when the kid is a stud football player at DeMatha.
|41 weeks 4 days ago||C-bus||
I cannot recall exactly where I was at the time (I have to believe it was somewhere deep in Nascar country), but I witnessed several impatient adults decide that, in lieu of waiting for the portajohns to become unoccupied, they would use instead use coolers in which to relieve their internal "baggage". Needless to say, the site of this was bad, but the resulting smell was even worse.

It's been 17 years already. Wow, I feel old. Thanks for that. Now, get off my lawn.
