I enjoy these pressers a helluva lot more than recent years. Sure, it's still mostly coachspeak and all, but there is a palpable energy to these pressers that just hasn't existed in awhile. Or maybe last season's moribund pressers are etched prominently in my memory.

Replace with higher value sticker currency. When you get 10 individual stickers, just swap them out for the extra-special 10-spot glitter sticker.

ABC, please. And bring back Keith Jackson. Thanks.

Excellent choice, Coach Blashill. I hope this is a nice transition from Pavel & Hank to Dylan, Gustav and company.

It's Monday morning. Too tired to fight today.

Hang the banner!!!
Innocent until proven guilty and all, but my dislike for the Louisville hoops program has now officially reached Duke levels.

Fall, without doubt, is my favorite season. Reading everyone's comments above confirm the best aspects of fall. There's just something that stirs my soul on a crisp fall morning or evening when the forest is ablaze.
My favorite fall tradition as a child was raking immense piles of leaves, then trying to replicate Billy Sims' endzone dives over the pile. For those Lions fans who are too young to remember Billy Sims, imagine gravity-defying leaps over heaping masses of lineman. Only we did it into leaves. Great memories.

Those were good days. A lot of good content came through in semi-unscrambled mode after 10 pm.

Can FieldTurf get sloppy?!
Fun Byrd Stadium Wiki factoid:
"The installation of FieldTurf Revolution was completed in early August 2012, and included a new technology known as "CoolPlay" that reportedly keeps the field cooler (up to 15° F cooler) than traditional turf fields with rubber infill. It was the first installation of its kind in the United States."
So at least the field will be 15F cooler during tropical storm conditions at night.
|6 days 8 hours ago||Maryland revenge||
I'm embarrassed to even utter the words "Maryland" and "revenge" in the same sentence. I live in Madison, WI, so I attend a Badger game every now and then if the opportunity arises. I watched the Badgers utterly destroy Maryland 52-7 last year in late October and remember thinking that an obviously flawed Michigan team would still be able to defeat Maryland AT HOME in late November. How wrong I was. The dual losses to Rutgers and Maryland were so deflating. In hindsight, I think we were lucky to win as many games as we did last year.
Anyway, let's commence the Maryland/Rutgers revenge tour this weekend.

I'm betting on the Columbus-Dayton-Put-In-Bay-Toronto forecast track.

There's a difference between prime time TV money and prime time *BTN* money!
|6 days 13 hours ago||Breezy + rain||
If this forecast track and timing holds, we should be OK for the game. The latest NHC forecast indicates College Park, MD in the 5-10% probability of tropical storm force winds. It could still be very breezy and rainy, but the eye will hopefully stay safely out of range. Nonetheless, this forecast will dominate our collective attention until Saturday.
Another option is to move kickoff time to early afternoon if the forecast looks horrendous. But that solution might be too logical.

|1 week 12 hours ago||I was never able to schedule||
I was never able to schedule directly with sports med or ortho when I had lingering musculoskeletal issues a few years back. I always had to go through my primary care doc first, then get a referral. I solved this dilemma by finding a fantastic primary doc who also did a sports med fellowship - she can address most of my midlife crisis sports med issues. I'm curious, though...it doesn't seem like many people in this managed health care environment can directly schedule with a specialist w/o getting a primary care referral first.
Also, good luck to the OP. See a doc.

I honestly didn't recognize the Duke symbol. I thought it was a Roman Numeral 1, followed by a Roman right paranthesis symbol. I hate Duke.

This study's ranking gives us nice innovation to party ranking ratio. I like.

Didn't know there was a Sierra Nevada brewery in Asheville. This doesn't make sense. It's the wrong damn mountain range.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Nice to crack the top 20||
Nice to crack the top 20 for some preseason buzz, but your stated preseason uncertainty range is valid.
I like this roster. Barring horrible injuries (get better Zak!), I see us in the top 25 conversation all year.

Ugly, ugly incident. Rutgers suspension seems secondary to what will hopefully be a prosecuted criminal case.

I didn't realize he was that cheap.
