“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

meaning, only in the highly unlikely state of affairs of, say, another season like last and where we lose all of the 'big 3' in some pretty ugly fashion. in other words, hoke would have to go down like rich rod did in his last season and quite frankly that is extremely unlikely.
so, no more 'hot seat' b.s., football cometh, and that right soon. go blue!

glad you made it though - and with some dicey weather if i read correctly about it being up by little traverse bay.

for the little ones. lots of thoughtfulness in real letters, like the 'thank you' letters we have our kids send at various times, 'get well' cards, things like that. i think it's something of a lost art and we have found people appreciate getting things like that in the snail mail.

thanks. consider yourself e-hugged (in a completely platonic, non-threatening and non-suggestive manner). i think we all would agree you are the favorite mgogirl-posters.

i ever prosecuted started with the phrase, 'where you from?', meaning, 'what gang are you from since you aren't from mine and i want to know who i'm about to kill'. kind of like asking a woman if she's pregnant, but in that instance usually only one person dies...

1987 - Ice T.
the movie it was written for used to describe an important part of life for me and my task force, back in the day.

1. have contemplated grape growing on some of the south facing slopes as we are in a reasonably good climate to give that a shot. some mgovino would be very nice.
2. beloved bride (and i) is quite busy with our children, their schooling, sports, the farm, etc. so i wouldn't want to add that to her plate. if we grow grapes, i'll do the added labor.

around the farm, a couple of mobile ones that don't move much. I have done some clearing with the brush hog in what we call fields 1 and 2. will probably put in some rye in field 2 in the next month.
and you, JT, bow hunter?

- not sarcastic. my mgowife walks on water as far as i am concerned. and while i don't post pics like mgrowold does (tastefully) we were watching our old wedding video last week for our anniversary with all the kids, and i couldn't help but repeatedly mention her beauty is/was phenomenol. now couched with 'for our age', but still a blessing. and of course as we get older we all realize character is far more important than beauty, but beauty is certainly a bonus.

to talk your best friend out of marrying that ohio girl! what kind of best friend would let that happen? what's next, letting him marry a taliban girl?

who is in the photo in the middle, besides of course Bo on the far right?
and can you imagine if we had a modern day 'biff' mascot? oh man, let's go find those stupid sparty and buckeye mascots - game on!

'there's something about shooting the bear and catching the salmon, and eating them both'. living off the land and sea up there will help anyone reorient on what is important and necessary in life. and you are right, the intensity of some of the encounters is really part of the fun/thrill.
|5 days 18 hours ago||Alaska||
hands down the most beautiful place on the planet. phenomenol hunting, fishing (fly and deep sea), skiing, hiking, boating, rafting, climbing. alaskans are fun too, generally very helpful. remember one thing about visiting though. locals say 'anchorage, only 1/2 hour away from alaska' in reference to the seedy urban element that lives in anchorage and is so out of place in the beauty and wilderness that is the rest of the state.

they get the fact that winning is tough and wins aren't handed out like candy canes at a Christmas party. excellent video.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Been to ND Twice||
once in the '70's to see my oldest brother play them, once in the '80's to see all our friends play them, and watch AC run a punt back and hand us the ball. the ND fans were fine then, but things change.
saw mich pound IU down in bloomington in the '80's too. nice fans, no problems. it was the first time i heard a fan base yell 'I-U-D' when we had the ball. i giggled like a school kid.
been to evanston to see NW play, but not against michigan. low-key, decent small stadium, and i always root for the cats as long as they aren't playing our wolverines.
now if you want to talk hockey venues, that is a different matter. i will say playing in columbus wasn't that big of a deal, and i will confirm a prior post that i always thought munn (MSU"s arena) had the best ice besides ours.

how'd that mid-year review go...?
back to the video - i played tight end for nearly 20 years so it was very enjoyable to watch a high-level coach at work with a position i am quite familiar with.

and our beloved university of michigan. i just let most of the kids watch that and they loved it, as of course did i. great story.

water temp i'll swim in. otherwise the headache lasts too long. i am, shall we say, ahead on my eating so my body adapts pretty quick even at those lower temps. i have avoided getting a wet suit all these years as somehow that would ruin the reason for being out there.
found a rather large anchor and chain today at about the 1/2 mile mark - drug it up to shore and kept swimming. it was big enough for mgrowold's boat, surprised the drunken owner didn't try to retrieve it.

thanks for sharing and it's very cool that you apparently had super calm water. as for time, you realize that if you ran 150 miles over 3.5 hrs your speed was over 40 mph. maybe your boat is a little faster than you thought, (or our navigator needs a tune up on chart reading.)
fun to get some insight into folks you see posting. and it's true, you are way young to be 'mgrowold'. maybe you should switch to: 'mgettingtomiddleagewithveryprettywife'.
|1 week 1 day ago||I Swim A Mile||
most every work day of the summer up here in GT bay. the water finally got over 60 last week. it is very pleasant right now, albeit about 4-6 weeks later than normal. swimming as late into october as i can tolerate it, but with all the global warming we had this winter, i'm not thinking i'll make october swimming this year.
