"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

Preparing for jet lag. Long flight tomorrow. I used to have my work travel plans organized weeks in advance, but I'll board the plane tomorrow not knowing how the hell I'll get to my hotel upon arrival. A nice POSBANG will help my mood as I prepare for stuffing my 98th percentile height body into a Delta economy class seat.

I just had one with dinner. In Wisconsin. I also approve this message.
|1 week 6 days ago||Orange||
Since I'm traveling to Amsterdam next weekend, I would really like NED to win this one. I can't imagine the excitement of watching the final match with the locals. If it happens, I'll have to find the proper shade of orange to wear (Syracuse? Clemson? Illinois?)

He would look good in a 2014-15 Michigan hoops uniform. Sigh.

I never saw this one on Thomas the Tank Engine.

I'll have an icy cold Molson Golden tonight to honor the Great White North.

Great TE pickup. Welcome, Mr. Clark.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||RIP||
The top 80's hitters were Tony Gwynn and Wade Boggs. I hated Wade Boggs. I loved Tony Gwynn. He had the smoother swing and seemed like a nicer guy. RIP to the sweetest swing around.

I'll show you my full moon if you posbang me.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Nick Swisher?||
Srsly? Nick Swisher as a representative professional baseball player at the top of his game? C'mon, now.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Moeller||
Mo seems to be a popular choice. I won't argue, especially for the price. He had giant balls as a coach, and was the perfect segue between the Bo and post-Bo era.

My duties here are done.

JB was also in on Pangos. Eye for talent, indeed.

So dreamy. Sigh.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||It might be a Band of||
It might be a Band of Brothers weekend for me. I've read the book 3 times, watched the series 4 times, and still get choked up every time. Amazing soldiers did amazing things to protect our freedom. Thanks.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks, SC||
Thanks, SC. I'll be in northern Wisconsin tonight (traffic permitting). I'll either sing your praises at 2 a.m., or will be sticking needles into my Space Coyote voodoo doll hoping to cause you major discomfort if this is a bust.
Seriously, though, there's nothing quite like staring up at the night sky. I need to do this more often. I appreciate the heads-up.

1992. You used to wear Zubaz like every day. I hated those things. You know who you are.

|9 weeks 3 days ago||Fail||
I call this a fail. It's not like Kyle Field was a hollow, soulless place before JM arrived. It's been a den of screaming Aggie lunatics for decades ('12th man' and all). Sure, the A&M stadium reno financing was helped by JM's on-field performance. But Kyle Field has been around since the early 1900's! Just name the new press box or a top-notch luxury suite after him and move on. Kyle Field is larger than Johnny Manziel. Much larger.

I'm sick, but I'm a trooper. I just banged everyone and am willing to be banged. Just cover your mouth.

Maize Rage flaunting a Ukrainian flag? Yeah, I like that thought.

Happy Mother's Day to all MGoMom's out there. May your day be merry and bright.

A posbang directly following a Jim Tressel hiring thread? Seems like weird karma, but I'll take it. I need a good bang today...and a cold Oberon affer work.

I cannot think of any sane reason why this just happened. I really can't. Youngstown St. just jumped the shark.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Transfer vs. NBA||
Wouldn't it also be so completely weird for him to want a college degree? If he transferred to UM, he would sit out a year, work out like crazy w/ Sanderson, take a bunch of classes, play a year, then go to the NBA with...maybe...a UM degree (not sure how many WVU credits will transfer to UM, which would play a huge role in determining if he could graduate after 2 years at UM). That's kind of cool. It would be even cooler if he stayed for 2 years.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||PSL?||
Sure, they try to lure you with a $14/ticket plan. But read the fine print. I'm sure the PSL fee is somewhere in the $50 per year range. Nothing but price gougers down there in Urbana-Champaign.
