The yelp segment had me crying. I can't wait for him to be back on the air.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Tour de France is my go to||
Tour de France is my go to crutch for this time of year. Goes all through July, meaning it takes you pretty much from end of NHL/NBA playoffs to when fall camp starts and news from that starts trickling out.

The "except in all things that negatively impact Michigan" is implied.

Day hiking is one thing, but to me wilderness is implied when it comes to backpacking, otherwise what's the point? If you can drive right up to the campsites and just as easily go home and sleep in your own bed and come back the next day, you're really just going through the motions for the sake of it. It is a great local trail for a tune up before a trip though. Another one in the area is the Potowatomi trail. It's nice that it's a loop (with cut offs if need be), downside is you have to share with mountain bikers, which can get pretty annoying on the weekends.
|1 week 1 day ago||Porcupine mountains are my||
Porcupine mountains are my favorite. There's a great loop that runs 4-5 days that let's you get a great sampling of Northern Michigan wilderness. You get a night on the lake superior coast, one by a babbling stream, one by a gorgeous inland lake (Lake of the Clouds or Mirror Lake), and on top of a Appalachianesque escarpment. If you plan ahead, you might even be able to add a night in one of the cabins spread out through the park. Since it's a State Park, not a National Park, there are fewer rules and no permits required. If you're feeling adventurous you can even venture of trail and disperse camp outside of the established sites.

Close, sure, but it's hardly a wilderness experience.

There's no kind of about it.
|1 week 6 days ago||Blue Tractor is decent in||
Blue Tractor is decent in general, but their brisket is pretty hit or miss. Once I went and it was great, second time was more like roast beef (and not the good kind either). If you can settle for pork, most stuff there is pretty good.

As someone married to a college administrator, I can tell you that this isn't the case,at least not until you get very high up the good chain. Everywhere my wife had worked had been extremely short staffed and the expectation is for people to work nights and weekends indefinitely.

Don't forget about their current douchebag coach.

Admit it, you guys are just covering for Ace and his carpal tunnel ridden hands.

Unless they totally change the formula, it will be an open world with maybe certain separate areas you access for specific quests.

If you're even remotely interested in the fantasy RPG genre, I would go get Witcher 3 today. It's a masterpiece, you will not regret it.

"Harbaugh even offered up Michigan's cavernous indoor practice facility, the Al Glick Field House, and the team's weight room to help the Ultimate team prepare for regionals."
That is just awesome.

Run game is expected to be a struggle at this point, as is QB. The spring game format definitely didn't help things. I think people are freaking out more about WRs because that position is more based on individual athleticism vs chemistry and timing.

Sadly, if he continues to do well on the field, he'll continue to have his pick of top recruits. See exhibit A: Nick Saban and Alabama.

Up: I would say Hurst, but I've been high on him for a couple years now. I guess I'll go with Bolden. He seems to be playing fast and living up to the hype finally. Hopefully it translates to when the pressure is on in earnest come this fall, but he looked like a different player out there, reading and reacting instead of waiting for the play to come to him.
Down: Gotta pick one of the receivers, hard to say who. I'll go with Mo Ways. I thought he looked fantastic during last year's fall scrimmage, but he doesn't seem to have made much progress since then, or even maybe took a step back. I dunno, maybe our secondary got better, but he didn't really separate himself from the DBs, or from the other receivers (who also couldn't get separation on non-Norfleet DBs).

For context Dr. James Andrews performed Braxton Miller's shoulder surgery, so it's not as if OSU doesn't respect his medical opinion... except when they need to get to 85 players by fall I guess.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Stribling played well all||
Stribling played well all game. He was a big part of the "receivers problem" people saw and was locking his guy down the whole time and not allowing any separation. They never really went to his side of the field, not surprising considering they had great matchups on the other side with Norfleet all day.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||I agree Hoke's public||
I agree Hoke's public speaking was tough to watch at times, but if you watch the video for this presser, I'm not sure Harbaugh is that big of an improvement. His style seems to be a lot of short sentence fragments that leave the reader/listener to sort of fill in the blanks to understand what he's trying to say.

I'm guessing he means Isaac, who only had one carry as far as I could tell, and is likely nursing an injury.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Not that I'm not nervous||
Not that I'm not nervous about it, but run game is the last to come together and the draft system makes it even tougher. You've got guys that haven't played together next to each other on both teams and at least a couple of 2nd teamers going against 1st team DL and LBs every snap.
Our receivers are the ones that have me worried the most, zero separation on any DB except for Norfleet and a lot of guys getting their routes run for them by the DBs. Blocking on the perimeter on bubble screens and sweeps were terrible all day to boot. WR should be farther along at this point since it's largely an individual effort vs a coordinated effort like running the ball.

Drevno and Durkin were doing the drafting, so I sure as hell hope they do.

The point isn't whether smoking weed is a big deal or not, the point is do you have control over using it. Not being able to lay off for a month so as to not jeopordize a huge paycheck likely means they can't lay off enough to not be high at practices and games.

He's been more or less shut down since his high school senior season. One hamstring back then, another last year, and now this. I feel terrible for the kid. Hope the medical staff and trainers can figure out what the hell is going one and keep this from happening again.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||I never felt pass rush was||
I never felt pass rush was really the issue. They weren't great certainly, and if you look at the stats they were pretty awful. But watching the games, it was pretty clear to me the problem was the secondary. We got dinked and dunked to death a lot. There's just not much you can do as a pass rusher when the QB does a 3 step drop and the receiver has beat the jam from the DB, or the DB is playing 10 yards off, for a easy 5-10 yard completion.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||We did it last year. I||
We did it last year. I figured I'd find ways to watch certain stuff, but truth be told, I never even bothered. It's amazing how "much watch" turns into "meh" once you don't have it for a while. We have Netflix for the few times a week we just want to put something on the TV while we eat or something.
I'm sure as football season rolls around, I'll want to look for options again, but right now, I have really zero regrets about not having any cable service whatsoever.
