Does Morgan count? He was a beast two years ago, sorely missed most of last year, and generating little idle chatter in the offseason. Maybe it'll have to be a re-breakout season for Morgan

A dad with two kids here. The boy is a giant (for his age). Who loves watching football more than anything. We've steered towards playing basketball (which he loves) and soccer (which he enjoys) in the hope that he'll be disinclined to go out for football in seventh grade. (This to the chagrin of a friend who coaches the local team for kids his age, who'd love to get him in pads). My daughter (13) wants to be the first female NFL player., but just to break down barriers and not for the love of the game.

Seems right. If the Utah and BYU venues were switched, UU would be a Lean, and BYU an Unfavored. As it is, both seem pretty hard to call. The ? that is QB -- Ruddock or not -- makes them both tough to pick.

I appreciate your post. Incidentally, what do you think of the Utah Utes this year? I'm assuming you play them. Are you scared? Should we be scared?

1) Those unis work better for Rutgers than for Nebraska.
2) We also had grey area catch issues with Rutgers last year.

Park on the Old West Side, and stop in for a couple of donuts from Washtenaw Dairy as you walk up Main St. to the Stadium.

If you're the pivot (i.e., 4th pick of round n and 1st pick of round n+1), and you're going to pick a Michigan player in one of those picks, why not -- just to make us all feel a little less apprehensive -- pick the UM guy first out of the two? KThanks.

I have to go with Leach (obv. -- $4), Harmon ($4), AC (best value on board -- $3), Woodson ($5), and Yost ($4).

Just FYI: Princeton doesn't have a J-School, unless you count the two semesters you can listen to John McPhee ramble on about how to make a travelogue about riding a Midwestern grain barge as boring as it authentically is. Northwestern and Columbia (and maybe BU?) are the top schools with autonomous journalism programs.

Another draftamageddon fan here. Makes for a better big ten preview than anything in print, plus there is snark. Also a good reality check on where UM's talent really stands. That said, those first four round put the 'Argh' in 'Ar(gh)mageddon.

Metrodome for a Twins game. It didn't feel like baseball.

[note: this comment responds to a mercifully deleted comment -- not the one directly above. Would be perfectly happy to have mine cut as well, now]
Wtf? The guy only mentioned, casually, that Mexico's top university really belongs in the top 1000 in the world. I'm not sure what "throwing they're (sic/LOL) heritage around" even means, or why it's a bad thing to be proud of where you come from. But, hey, if you're feeling sick, why don't you take the rest of the day(/week/year) off? Probably for the best for all of us...

UCSD is a very good school, especially in the biological sciences. I'm puzzling over how Wayne State snagged such a high spot.

Used to be 60 OSU, 30 MSU, and 10 ND, but ...
10% (composed of 1% each for the 7 SEC West teams, FSU, South Carolina, and Baylor)
|3 weeks 5 days ago||give him the damn ball||
This write-up makes him seem most likely to help the team by having him get the ball and watching if anyone can catch him. (Thinking along the lines of The First Time Denard Touched the Ball). Less of a sense the the Woodson-Law-Jackson line of CB greats resumes with him.

Plus 1000. On the app, so I can't actually up vote, but yes. This.

I lived in LA from '91-'95. My recollection of that phenomenon is not a happy one: FSU stretching out to a 3-TD lead before breakfast.

The Office (UK version) and Firefly are both great, although neither is really a drama, and neither reached a full season's worth of episodes.

Strange to see so many IN targets -- standard practice for basketball, I know, but a veritble flurry of Hoosier targets for football here.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Isengard Buckeyes beware||
I picture one of Tolkein's Ents waging war against the various Goblins and Trolls in the second Fellowship of the Rings book/movie. Not mobile -- perhaps even downright slow -- but lethal.

That's already true
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Off to a good start! Gas||
Off to a good start! Gas company came by, found a leak, and shut off or gas. So now I'm waiting for the plumber, and hoping all fixes are quick and easy. Looks like we'd be grilling our way through the weekend, even if we didn't want to. That and cold showers.

"I know that there are people in the world that do not love their fellow human beings, and I hate people like that." Of course, the song itself: https://youtu.be/aIlJ8ZCs4jY
