Mother of god, my heart skipped a beat when Countess slightly over-rotated and landed on locked knees.

Can you please reference the positions instead of/in addition to the player names when describing the 2000 defense, for those of us that can't remember what we had for breakfast let alone the roster 13 years ago?

I would get a realtor to help you out. Most campus housing goes through a yearly cycle where leases are usually signed pretty early in the Spring for the following year. You might be a little behind the game and having a realtor, particularly since you are looking from long distance, is going to be worth the commission (which is sometimes paid by the landlord anyway).
When I went there 10 years ago most grad students lived north of the campus by Kerrytown or Catherine and State area. It's a little quieter than, say Packard and State or Hill St areas.
Can't really help with jobs since that's not my field, but I do know Google has a location in AA though. I'm guessing that's rather competitive. I also know there's a temp service for university jobs my wife used, I don't recall what the name is, I'm sure if you web search you can find it. It's going to be pretty low paying, low skill work for the most part, but it might be a good way to network or get your foot in the door.

Jeebus, I almost forgot how awesome our incoming class is.

Not sure what they expect from Cleary there. He was already throwing his hit when the guy turned away.

While I have no doubt Coach Hoke and Coach Mattison had a huge part in BWC's resurgence, you also gotta give credit to Will himself. It sounds like he really finally realized talent only takes you so far and worked his way back from irrelevance and the "bust" label. I wish him nothing but luck at the next level.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Even more impressive||
Even more impressive considering he sat behind Denard for 2.5 years. The guy is a true team player and his patience is paying off.
EDIT: 2.5 years, not 3.5

+1, Kovacs isn't a stocks and securities scammer so the "Rudy" name doesn't fit

With our OL recruiting? I prefer between the tackles. Getting run over by the ball carrier the few times you're not getting run over by lineman just seems totally demoralizing. The ability to turn a rare 10 yard run into a 30 yard run isn't as important as getting 4-5 yards every single carry, IMO.

I love the story about Tyrone Wheatley. In contrast to some of the more infamous overbearing parents of up and coming athletes, Wheatley Sr just letting his son do his thing is really cool. I gotta think the genuine joy at being back at his Alma Mater and seeing the people and places again would be way more convincing than any sales pitch he could have made anyway.

XKCD (especially what-if.xkcd.com), I fucking love science,
Make a professional looking LinkedIn page. This is how you'll keep in touch with people you've networked with
Join the trade organization (ex: IEEE for electrical engineers, SAE for automotive related)

I don't think there's any way he makes it on the field as a QB. I do hope his arm fully recovers though. I think his usefulness is improved if defenses have to respect the possiblity of him throwing it on a gadget play when he gets the ball.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||All the other implications of||
All the other implications of this aside, I am just happy for him. It must be a huge weight off his shoulders. I can't imagine keeping such a huge part about who you are a secret for so long.

During batting practice no less. The story says there were multiple hits landing in that area before she even took the picture.

I thought the same thing. The camera is pointed directly at the sun so it should be at the fastest speed possible.

or learning how to not to shoot with a man guarding him in some cases.

I would love to see Kovacs find his way back to Ann Arbor as a coach someday, hopefully after a fruitful stint in the pros.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I agree, the section lines||
I agree, the section lines are ridiculous. Hopefully with the GA format, it'll move much more quickly since the hold up seemed to always be one old guy with bad vision checking every single ticket to make sure you were in the right section.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Willie Henry really stood out||
Willie Henry really stood out to me during the Spring Game. He was kind of under the radar in other Spring Game post mortems I've read here and elsewhere, probably because he didn't make many key plays. Zeroing in just on him though, he was really impressive taking on doubles, getting push 1 on 1 and chasing down and finishing plays.

If you're feeling a bit inspired after the article, go to Be The Match and become part of their registry.
It's quick and easy, they send you 4 q-tips you swab the inside of your cheeks with and mail it back. In most cases, if you are a match, the procedure is also much less invasive than the one this guy went through; it's basically like giving blood.

I watched that a few times on the DVR. Pipkins gets out of his stance with a full head of steam and literally bounces back just as fast when he meets those two. Donkeys will be ridden this fall.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I think the more telling part||
I think the more telling part is that Fitz, despite not practicing and frankly not being that great last year, is still penciled in as the starter in Al's mind. It definitely makes me think it's "all average one" and not "several really good players" unfortunately. That said, I think Hayes/Norfleet will have a big role whoever the bellcow turns out to be.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I'm surprised there was no||
I'm surprised there was no mention of Willie Henry. He seemed to be using his bull rush with good effect and I noticed him on several occasions hauling ass after a play that went the other way. I think he's going to be a good one for us in the future.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I came away cautiously||
I came away cautiously optimistic about the offense, and specifically the starters at OL. I thought Braden was a bit better than Gasglow despite less playing time. They all certainly look the part. Wellman may not have the hype Barwis had, but he's doing an amazing job. The guys that needed to drop some weight (Logan Tuley-Tillman, Ondre Pipkins come to mind) looked great, and the guys that needed to put on weight for the most part looked like they put on good weight (Taco is HUGE)

This reminds of the scene from The Waterboy where coach Red Beaulieu grips his stolen green notebook a little tighter after seeing highlights of the resurgent Muddogs on Sportscenter.
