Not one of the posters who asked, nor one who googled, but I learned much more by actually seeing him perform, actually hearing the lyrics (once they fixed the sound glitch), and seeing the kids look up to him.
Not a hater, just a [formerly] ignorant oldster.

But that makes me even more willing to put in my 1/17 cent's worth.

It's been there so long, it's probably become part of the woodwork and we may forget to use it.

once they're on staff. And then I feel I can only symbolically upvote by praising my favorite line, but then I feel I'm being unfair to all the other favorite lines.
So here's a woman with a broom and a cat.

I couldn't decide if they looked more like diapers or tutus, and the colors of the diapers don't even match the tops. It's as if they pulled one piece from column A and one from column B and didn't care if the blues [blacks?] and yellows [maize?] came from different dye providers.
Hoped they would have fixed it after the first game. Really embarrssing, and feel bad for the guys who have to wear them.

A very wealthy community from what I understand. Who knows what tricks they have at their disposal?

for your picking up his wonderful typo in a timely manner, while allowing us to figure it out anyway.

In yesterday's Punt/Counterpunt, along with comments pro and con.
Not surprisingly, those who agreed with his caution are in the minority. Even less surprising, even they hoped for victory, but were aware that IU's won-loss record didn't mean they were a pushover.

Or is Great Ibe really the Eastern linebacker's name?
Congratulations to Jake. Also amazing that the last Michigan player to be honored was LB Brandon Herron (September 4, 2011).
|1 week 4 days ago||Thanks for that.||
Now I have a reason to pay attention to those games. Will definitely be rooting for Indiana. We know what it's like to play really well and lose. A bowl would be a nice consolation prize.

I don't even know what you guys are talking about.

Does that mean when Harbaugh gave Rutgers the NCAA-required play-by-play game plan before the game he left that little wrinkle out?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Heartbreaking||
His last post was responding to the comment that he should take all the time he needs to recover, that we'll wait to watch him play. And then he described his son's playing so beautifully:
I feel like my heart is breaking along with theirs. So very, very sad.

Well, it did not come out that way.
So I'm guessing that your avatar name is meant to be ironic?

So I'll only add it often takes much longer than expected. I remember having college friends who "got to go home" with mono for a week or two for a "mid-semester vacation." I don't think most of us respected how serious it can be, and the long-term effects that can develop without full recovery.
A lot of us think we're soft to give in to the early symptoms, probably athletes in particular. But it can get worse and it does take time, and to someone so young and so eager to perform, that time may seem like an eternity. Glad you're all there for him, and he has a doctor who knows what he's talking about.
Tell Charlie we're all patient enough to wait to cheer him on the field. We're cheering for him now.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Wise decision||
As someone who had mono when I was already a couple years out of college, I may have been walking around with it for weeks or even months, and once the symptoms became serious enough to know that it wasn't something temporary, it was another 10 days or so to get correctly diagnosed. When I finally knew what it was (struggling even to hold up the NYC phone book to call the hospital to get my test results), I realized I had to go back home to live with the parents for however long it was going to take.
Best wishes for his full recovery, and his return to school and the team when he's completely ready. It'll be worth it.

Even Tom Brady didn't transfer until after his sophomore year.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Plus Harbaugh knew Speight was the real story||
How many of us thought the game was over when we saw him put in? And after going 0 for whatever, to get rid of the jitters and make those incredible, confident throws to win the game? He answered the questions we all had. "How did you do it?"
We saw the coaches on the sideline encouraging him, treating him with respect, and he could tell us how that helped him. "They prepare all the QBs like we're starters, and they told me to go out and have fun."

Quite a pair. (Great catches, both for the photog and the players.)
EDIT: And then I see the flying Butt. Guess I should look at the whole gallery before commenting.

They probably hire writers with actual human interest for this kind of thing.

don't check out until the next day? I'd hate to think MGoBlog didn't get their share because of my extended inner debate.

so I use this rule of thumb.

I'll look toward what's to come.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||He had a torn ACL in his first season||
Was on the PUP for a while entering the second, switched to linebacker after playing end at Michigan and apparently had trouble with the position switch. (Something about coaching and/or scheme change in there too, but don't remember the details.) Since the Eagles traded up to draft him in the first round, the "bust" term came first from Eagles fans.
If he's still using the term, it means he's taking responsibility himself instead of blaming fate. Great to see him finally coming into his own.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||He was injured 2-3 weeks ago||
but wasn't put on IR. Good to know he was back playing again this weekend.
