There are over 6500 now.
|23 hours 24 min ago||Thanks H2TB||
I could not make it up there this weekend as I usually do. I had to search far a wide for the scores. Thanks so much.
|5 days 23 hours ago||Now that||
is just plain nasty.
|6 days 23 hours ago||The real question is....||
will you have a Coke and a smile?????
|1 week 4 hours ago||Well, let's look||
on the bright side, Fall Softball is almost here. That is Michigan's only consistant winning team.
|1 week 5 hours ago||SC is a funny||
guy. People will march on State St if this happens.
|1 week 3 days ago||Herbie is||
a reasonable guy. I do not think he picks against us just because we kicked his ass. I honestly believe that he is giving his honest opinion. Everyone else picks M in a close one.
I will be home today working on yard stuff. Momma said I have to get some things done if I want to go to Penn St. Sold my tickets for face on Stub hub.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||I would guess||
that our ranking with High Times is very....err.....High.
|3 weeks 8 hours ago||Keep in mind||
that USNWR uses many factors for their rankings. Academics is only a small portion of the ranking. Quality of life, tuition cost, setting and many other factors are included.
Higher Times is a more reputable ranking in terms of pure acedemics. Compare that to High Times ranking which I would think we rank very high as well but I have not data to support this.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||What are you||
talking about? Mary Sue retired in June. We have a change.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Lets do this||
|3 weeks 5 days ago||34-27||
Us. Funchess and Greene combine for 200 yards.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I have an ATT and Sprint||
phone. ATT was lightning fast. I could not believe it. I was able to read the live blog in real time. No question an upgrade.
Sprint had no service. I thought Sprint and Verison used the same technology and equipment. I was in row 14.
So I guess I will use my ATT phone and take an external power source moving forward.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Dude.. You aint right||
I laughed out loud at this one. Good catch.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Well you||
make a good point here with the younger players. I suppose that Hoke may be thinking of playing the younger players against Appy St. This sounds reasonable to me.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||So a reverse||
psychology type thing? I might be inclined to buy this. Only show base packages that everyone has anyway. Nuss is not new to college football. Everyone knows his style and scheme.
I just wonder if the risks (injury, OL embarrasment, tipping your hand) are worth any potential reward.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I read that too||
but I dont buy it. There is too much risk and not enough up side in my opinion.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||WATCH IT!!!||
I posted the air fare from Detroit to Oklahoma City after the first game win at Florida State last year in the Supers. When the wheels came off, I had MGo Protesters picking my house.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I never want||
to take ANYTHING for granted, but the Big Ten schedule is fairly easy next year. This year we had too many "brain farts" where one simple error cost us the game. We should have had 4 or 5 more wins than we actually had.
Coach will work on these with the younger players and this will get fixed. The key is going to be how much the defense will improve. Pitching and hitting will not be a problem.
Like I always say, "Sometimes even the better team loses". This is why we actually play the game. This drives coaches crazy. When your team gets beat by a superior team, and your team played well, then all the coach can do is work harder. However, when the defense makes errors, batters look at 3rd strikes, or pitchers walk too many batters; a loss is more difficult to take. Overall next year will be better than this year.
BRING ON FALL BALL!!!!!!!!!!!
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Better yet||
why have the scrimmage open? Did Hoke think the OL was\is better than the performance? Does Hoke know the OL is bad and wants to put undue pressure on them?
Or is this an attempt to calm down the natives for the otherwise, lack of respect to the most loyal fans?
Overall I just do not see the logic for an open scrimmage this close to the start of the season.
Or should I also give up the liquid lunches?
|6 weeks 21 hours ago||I had||
to laugh out loud at this. I remember when Gore said he "invented" the internet. The worst part is people actually believed him, now that is scary.
Thanks for the chuckle.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Freep is||
not worth reading on any given Tuesday, let alone anything about M.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I would||
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Devin, Jakey, Blake||
that is all. No more to see here.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Ditto for me||
never have, never will. Although I have been high twice in my life. Once was a few years ago at Pine Knob at a Kid Rock concert. There was a blue haze everywhere and it smelled like skunk. I should have worn a gas mask but that would have impeeded my dranking ability.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Maybe, but||
one needs to look at the criteria. Money used educational quality, affordability and alumni earnings. Maybe Yale took a hit because of affordability? tuition is $182K for Yale vs $82K for BYU when both schools have $50K for salary after 5 years. BYU is a better bang for the buck.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||I agree with this assessment.||
I am a White Collar Automotive Engineer. The reputation of Michigan is very high. Many HR Managers have a very high opinion of Michigan even though many of these HR Managers did not attend Michigan.
One HR Manager told me that all he needed to see was a Degree from Michigan and that person was hired regardless of position. I know of several Michigan grads with non related (History, Art) degrees working in the technical side of the Automotive Industry.
He avoided MSU and EMU grads like the plague. He had a postive opinion of CMU, Ferris, NMU and Lake State. I am not sure his rationale was reasonable though.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||The Times Higher||
ranking (not to be confused with High Times) is heavily focused on acedemics. I think it is a better measure of how well the school educates its students and how that education is perceived world wise. I wonder what ranking High Times would give us?
The USN&WR's rankings are a joke because they factor in such things as quality of life, access to public transportation, the number of pizza places within walking distance, intermural sports etc. Now these things are all important but the #1 reason to go to school is to get educated. Partying should be #21 on the list of priorities (IMO).
This is the first time I looked at Money's rankings. It seems reasonable to me but East Coast schools will be heavily favored. I will have to spend a little more time on this list.

Dr. Susan Murphy's statistic class(es). Luck is another word for randomness.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Hi MGO||
I live in Port Huron and I have done this trip a few times as a passenger, never as a Captain. EZ Bud is correct. It is all basedon the weather. Bad weather = unhappy Momma.
The Customs and Immigration issue is quite simple. If you are going to be registered at Canada immigration and the vessel departs from Sarnia, you can traverse the waterway without any issues. Techically you will NOT leave Canada as the waterway is dual owned.
The issue becomes when you step on land in the US. If you have a mechanical or medical issue you MUST call US Coast Guard Station and identify a problem. They will give you direction but your Captain should know this. You never want to stop at Sans Souci Bar on Harsen's Island or Gars in Marine City for a few. Has it been done before without any issues? Sure. Have I stopped in Canada for 1 or 10 without declaring???? (5th Amendment protection here).
As long as the vessell meets the regulation for life jackets, navigation lights etc and everyone has passports; you will be golden. Make sure to take your jacket, even in 80 degree heat because she can get cold very quickly.
If you have a few minutes, give me a shout and I will buy you that beer that I owe you. Have fun nonetheless.
