|4 days 5 hours ago||Pete Carroll is another one||
Before USC he bombed with the Patriots.
|1 week 4 days ago||Kinda scary and depressing when you consider||
what it takes to get kicked off of Tennessee's football team. Let's hope he was trying to support a victim of another teammate's actions. (It's a long shot considering a past suspension but you never know.)
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I saw that earlier and had to laugh.||
I can't imagine it will go well for that DB in the film room (while he's still quietly thinking to himself it was the right decision)
|3 weeks 5 days ago||It would actually drive them crazier||
if everyone just left calmly while congratulating all the Sparties they see along the way on a great game (after wiping the field with them of course.)
|4 weeks 20 hours ago||Band rehearsal down at Elbel this morning||
I think it starts around 10:00, maybe it's 9:00. I should know since my son is in the band (Alto sax) and I have to head down to help setup for the alto's pregame meal. Oh, as soon as I finish my coffee I'm off for a mountain bike ride though. Maybe see you out on the trails...
|4 weeks 4 days ago||A much deeper local in-state talent pool||
Oh, then there's those little things like cars, money, tattoos and so on rustling around in the smoke out there.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||+1 verbatim... unless you ask me in January/February||
Although this past winter wasn't that bad at all.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Onwenu and Bradenson say don't worry||
about Braden. Hopefully he picks his game up but if not, we have some talented youngsters able to step in.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Fragels? Is there still a source around?||
I worked at the Bagel Factory many years ago and still miss those things.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Big POSBANG||
for M-14 finally opening! It's been a real PITA getting around during the construction. Big rigs cruising Huron River Dr., traffic jams... almost felt like I was back in L.A. (no, not really)
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Movie? That was a radio talk show about cars||
Q. Does listening to public radio make someone:
a) a nerd
b) smarter and more intelligent
c) better looking
d) a liberal
e) a, b, and d
|13 weeks 3 days ago||I don't know about right,||
but in this instance he defintiely has blue balls
(ugh, painful high school memories)
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Nice!||
I expect to see this embedded on the front page before the day is out.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||One interesting side note,||
Hawaii's AD is a Michigan alum. I'm not sure his coach will be too excited about our camping there, but maybe they will be ok with it. It would be nice if they put in a good word for UM with kids destined for USC or UCLA though.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Wow. As someone who lived in||
Socal for many years and a former UCLA season ticket holder I can assure you that USC fans/grads would never root for UCLA. And even though I don't like USC at all I have to say their (rather obnoxious) fans actually care more than other Pac12 schools. Think about it, they're the only traditional power out there - at least they used to be. In sum, get a clue.
In the meantime, I am rather enjoying their ongoing run of crappy hires.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||Spot on||
Harbaugh hires outstanding coaches that, oh, may have very talented sons as a bonus. The practice of hiring Dudes to pull top high school talent (junior Dudes) would bother me if it weren't for the fact that the guys have turned out to be outstanding hires on merit. Think about it: Wheatley, Partridge, Bush Sr. So far, so great.
Even better is hiring them on the staff but not as coaches which provides an opportunity for them to prove themselves and eventually move on to the coaching staff or jump to another team. It's win/win with minimal downside. If they turn out as duds, well, the impact is mitigated by not starting them out as coaches. That has to be earned. And the hungry talented young coaching talent are already hustling just to get noticed by Harbaugh.
|33 weeks 14 hours ago||Some body types and||
metabolisms really struggle to put on weight without the help of PEDs (until middle age that is.)
|37 weeks 2 days ago||Better cross your fingers||
that the injury bug stays far away from A2 (safeties in particular). I know I am.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||the world is littered with||
people who stayed in one sided relationships well beyond the point of self respect simply because they knew it was probably their best shot at landing a very attractive mate. It's easy to tell someone to show some self-respect but I can understand teenagers taking a rather myopic view of things. Hang on to your dreams and all that....
|43 weeks 4 days ago||Without checking||
I am going with Ricky Leach as a freshman QB.
Edit: Nevermind. I should read more of the thread before posting.
|43 weeks 6 days ago||nice sleuthing but||
"auntie" is commonly used for close family friends as well real aunts in many families and cultures. Point being, they aren't necessarily JD's cousins. (Not that it would change how messed up the whole thing is.)
|44 weeks 1 day ago||Better not go to||
|44 weeks 5 days ago||Pathetic defense and rebounding||
on our part had something to do with SMU looking so dominant.
|48 weeks 2 days ago||What about Wheatley?||
He has been practicing so I don't see him falling behind a freshman in the rotation at tight end next year. If Bunting can add good weight and learn to block we have the makings of a talented and deep rotation sooner rather than later.
|50 weeks 2 days ago||Mutation = milkman||
or mailman, no matter...
|52 weeks 16 hours ago||Errands, cleaning, refinish a dresser||
then off to Band-O-Rama at Hill Auditorium for some evening entertainment. There may not be a game today but I will still enjoy the MMB (with good acoustics for a change).
|1 year 5 days ago||And this thought is keeping me sane||
"But I don't think it's blind hope at all to think that Harbaugh will soon have a better running game and defense than UM has now, and a QB better than Connor Cook to go with them."
We outplayed them and can look forward to better things down the road. That feels good. (unlike my head this morning)
|1 year 1 week ago||The thinking went along the lines of||
the team stinks therefore the players are not good, therefore Hoke can't identify talent, ergo poor recruiting. That theory has been disproven as we enjoy the results of great coaching and player development.
|1 year 1 week ago||Maybe the one that lost||
to Virginia Tech.
|1 year 1 week ago||Rutgers almost beat State||
so theoretically, it could be a game against OSU. Theororetically, not in the real world.
