"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

No offense, but, really? Chances are you get a honk or two, or maybe someone agitated enough by a vanity plate flips you off. But I sincerely ask, do you care? FWIW, I've driven through Ohio a bunch and have found it to be no different than any other state outside of the strict speed enforcement (which I'd like to blame on UM plates but really it's just an out of state car that was, you know, actually speeding). PA is just as bad as Ohio on highway speed monitoring in my experience, though. Who knows? Maybe I've just been lucky.

For $5k, a nice tri-bike. $10k, a Jeep Wrangler. $15k, e46 M3 if I can find one at that price...it's close.

Dude. You should really get your own blog going. Assuming it's a passion of yours and you can/want to write.

"You should probably focus on other schools because you won't get in to Michigan" - my high school guidance counselor being a dick for no reason during my sophomore year while I asked him which schools I should pick for a mock college application project. It changed my focus and set me down a different path that resulted in a Michigan degree, great career path, life experiences, etc.

Sometimes I left early to study when we were getting our ass handed to us because I was supporting the university in other ways (e.g. by giving them thousands upon thousands of dollars so I could learn). If that calls my "fandom" into question and doesn't make me a Michigan Man in spite of having a diploma on my wall, meh, I'm okay with it. I value my education more than your opinion.

BMW M3 Sedan for daily driver, fully loaded Range Rover for space and functionality, Audi S7 for long drives/grand tourer, Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster for fun when it's nice out.

If you're referring to the practice round/opening round of Jacks course he designed, the back story was that he was with Johnny Miller, I believe, and the green was structured in a way where miller wanted to chip from one tier of the green to where the pin was located. The exchange was something like: N: don't you dare chip from there and ruin my green. You do it once then everyone will. M: but it's an impossible putt to make from here N: no it's not, I'll show you. That's more or less the exchange, though I've forgotten the details over the years. I was within earshot. So awesome for him to call it and sink it.

Well, obviously she doesn't care about Kalis the way she would her son. But if rude fans turn her off to a particular school, there wouldn't be any schools left from which to choose.

Perhaps she should read what OSU fans said about Kalis if she's going to use the voices of few to judge an entire fan base. This will always be an issue in today's tech age when people can hide behind keyboards.

Man, I love chess. And I'm from Jacksonville, too, so I appreciate the Jags love because there are, like, 57 total fans. I do have one question for you, though: if it can't be Harbaugh, as an athlete, for whom would you want to play if you were a current recruit?

Haha I'm a whiskey/bourbon type. But I will say, for a good chocolate espresso drink that has always been a hit with the ladies: 1 shot of each of espresso, vanilla vodka, kahlua, baileys. Line the martini glass with chocolate syrup. Definitely a big Xmas party favorite and can win you a few points

Presently I'm drinking "Elf Nog" coffee blend that I picked up from Busch's. It's mediocre. Suggestions, anyone?
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Also understand this point.||
Also understand this point. However, you wouldn't want to be the university that overextends financial commitments to a head coach during years of operating profit and then has to pay for it out of the general fund should things go south. Imagine the outrage if you are scraping for funds to promote the arts because your Athletic Department is in the red. Again, I'm in the we should pay Harbaugh whatever it takes, but I'm trying to play devils advocate and be in the mind of an academically focused university president.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Totally understand. But you||
Totally understand. But you asked why it would be considered ridiculous. It's a drop in the bucket compared to UMHS, sure, but Harbaugh solely by himself isn't bringing in the revenues that the entire health system does, either.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Because it still rolls up||
Because it still rolls up under the university. If you ran a multimillion dollar holdings company, would you be okay with one of your subsidiaries spending away a disproportionate amount of their profits for an investment just because you don't have to actively fund the venture at the moment? I'd be concerned. That said, I'm firmly in the hand over a blank check camp on Harbaugh.

A basketball court is only 28 yards long...considering most NFL QBs can hit a moving target on the money at that distance (think combine board bullseye) I would assume the full court, stationary throw is easier.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||I was able to do this maybe||
I was able to do this maybe 3/10 times in high school and I sucked. For a professional to put a ball in a one foot, stationary, window after a bit of practice isn't terribly impressive. I would guess that every QB in the league, starter or not, could sink that throw with a few attempts.

I-form or pistol near twins right with Gallon/Funchess. They run hi/lo outs. Play action stretch off left tackle, but Fitz continues out into the wheel route.
No idea if this works or is even a thing.
