|1 week 4 days ago||candy||
that's awesome... silliness is important, for kids and in life generally
speaking of which, my two boys (7 and 10) were with my wife and I in Leland recently, and saw the candy store up the river next to the dam, so of course, the rest of the afternoon they would not stop asking
"when can we go back to the dam candy store!!"
fully aware that they were, gasp, kind of swearing...

“Those who surrender tradition (freedom) for success (security) will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Bradley||
i think this formation is actually highly suited to Bradley's best tendencies as well (marshalling control of the midfield through possession and clever distribution - see the beaut of a switch to wood v Bolivia here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywHeUzJxoh8); i like having him just in front of the center backs, allowing Jones & Bedoya to roam a bit, and bossing the midfield while keeping it all in front of him.

"There haven’t been any indications that the Rainbow Warriors won’t be playing football in the future, though attendance issues and extreme travel costs are cause for concern."
This set of concerns is potentially quite important; I believe they warrant a series of site visits by selected members of this illustrious blog community to confirm or deny the validity and efficacy of said concerns

nicely chosen pic btw
|14 weeks 2 days ago||the only maize & blue colored endzones...||
...i actually like to see are on a particular field in Pasadena, California.
painted endzones in other playoff/bowl games are tolerable. Michigan Stadium endzones should remain as they have since Canham put down the carpet
|17 weeks 3 days ago||this is exactly why I can't stomach||
the exorbinant ticket prices for these ICC matches... I am all for growing the game here in the states, and perhaps bringing european teams and stars into town for a friendly is the best way to continue to do that, but it's not like you're going to see Ronaldo, Benzema and Bale going toe to toe with John Terry/Azpilicueta/Ivanovich for 90 minutes...
Perhaps these guys continuing to come into town, however, may start to make the case for a return to a grass playing surface... the width of the big house playing surface will always be suboptimal for footy (unless they elevated it as was discussed back in '94 for the WC), but I'd love to get the natural field back.
speaking of growing the game locally, it would really be great if they could get a Detroit City FC vs. the Men's Varsity squad or something along those lines as an opener too...

from the perspective of those of us who were able to be there during the Turco-Morrison-Knuble-Muckalt-Madden-et al. era but now live out of town, hearing that Yost is rocking on the level of yesteryear is music to my ears... and from a pure written word perspective that captures that era, this is pure gold:
"I got into Michigan hockey because I wanted to see someone set on fire, and then taunted about how stupid and flammable they are."

Kudos to all the students, engineers and volunteers associated with the UM Solar Car Team! You guys are making us all proud!

...the over-cb leap and subsequent goal-line stiff-arm for the TD in his scouting highlight vid.
welcome to AA!
|25 weeks 4 days ago||one caveat||
...is that I wouldn't underestimate the motivation of recruiters/writers in the south who are more than anxious to pick up and run with a Harbaugh-negative recruiting perception/theory/story and stretch it out for as long as they can...
if they can't pass the anti-satellite camp rules, they sure as hell are going to jump all over stories like this if/when given the chance. I agree with Brian that we are largely on the up and up here (it seems), but that some things could be cleaned up for sure as the season goes on, but whether there is any "there there" or not, the esseeesseeee is sure to make mountains out of harbaugh-recruiting molehills

the champion of Tree Town!
|27 weeks 5 days ago||co-signed...||
...interesting that Neymar will be there in the running as well, but it seems to me that (like Iniesta in the past couple of years) it would take an awful lot for a fellow-Barca player to distinguish themselves/surpass Messi's influence on the team.
that said, the torch will be passed to Neymar someday... just probably not today

"got some pretty big Saturdays planned... gotta get revenge on two big rivals (on the road), go undefeated in OOC play, win the B1G and get into the playoffs... not sure if we'll be able to layer on the #disrespekt heavily enough, not sure we'll have enough time..."
|30 weeks 4 days ago||which Bush administration?||
also, it sounds like you are ready to move on to...
THE FEATS OF STRENGHTH.
I'd actually pay good money to watch Harbaugh compete with Mike D'Antoni in an actual Feats of Strength battle
(yes, I meant great #disrespekt)

Meyer was wildly successful with the Gators, but earned criticism for a high number of off-the-field incidents and arrests.
(not earth-shattering, of course; not really much else at the link either... but thought it was interesting re: Meyer)

it will be interesting to see the previews our Dear Leader and the gang put together, especially their look at how Mr. Doug Nussmeier has done down there in Gainesville as compared with up here last season
|33 weeks 5 days ago||interesting to see that their||
schedule for 2016 has only 5 games on it at present:
I know you have to adjust for various scheduling issues, but it is nearly December of the year immediately prior and there are four games at the beginning of the season, and one late; of course, they went 3-10 this year, so...
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Brilliant.||
Thanks. Very much...
