|5 weeks 4 days ago||Miles of Golf||
Visit the fine folks of Miles of Golf. Seriously, the staff's knowledge about golf clubs, and their ability to get the correct club(s) into the hands of every level of golfer, is second to none. You won't regret it.

Pretty much right in the backyard of Donovan Peoples-Jones and the rest of our Cass Tech targets! I like it.
|22 weeks 6 days ago||I second that! So much more||
I second that! So much more enjoyable than the various professional team based video games.

I remember back when I was an undergrad at UM in the early 2000s when the concession stand employees at the Stadium would fill my beverage of choice into a plastic souvenir cup that listed our school's "President's Cup" ranking since its inception. I recall noticing that we were very rarely outside of the top 5. Glad to see that we're back!
|22 weeks 6 days ago||Welcome! It's always great||
Welcome! It's always great to grab a commit from a high level recruit at a position of need...but it's even better when the recruit is from our rival's backyard!

I, unequivocally, LOVE having a coach like Harbaugh that doesn't mind stirring it up.
|22 weeks 6 days ago||Congrats to him!||
Congrats to him!
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Same Here||
That's the exact same thing I thought about when I read the post. Sad.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Agreed||
What a true gem Miles of Golf really is. I had the good fortune of working there during my junior and senior year of undergrad at Michigan. Best golf shop (and training facility) in the State of Michigan hands down!

"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.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||While I'm guessing he||
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.
|29 weeks 5 days 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.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||Great Story||
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.
|29 weeks 5 days 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.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||HA!||
I just logged in to post the same thing. Of course he would have a wife that looks like that. Amazing.
|32 weeks 6 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.
|33 weeks 2 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.
|33 weeks 3 days 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.
|36 weeks 1 day 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!
|40 weeks 4 days ago||Other Pay||
RichRod receives $360,000 in "other pay"? That's more than two times what the next closest coach receives. What gives?
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Great points. Let's also not||
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).
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Assembly Hall||
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.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||MSU - 55% (because I didn't||
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).
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Hellcat||
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?
|1 year 10 weeks 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.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Island||
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.
