"Yet To Be Named Harbaugh-Themed Guys Who Did Good Award"
just spit-ballin here, pulling from today's press-conference - perhaps the "High Alert" Award? (i know this was in reference to Will Likely (to whom we will certainly (hopefully) not be punting our footballs) and the MD return game, but perhaps it could also connote a high-performing wolverine for the week?
anyway, for your consideration...

and while I like Rare Bird's goods, I'd have to say that both the Workshop and the Filling Station have the best beer in town, followed closely by Right Brain. Of course, Shorts is nearby, and you have Jolly Pumpkin out on the Peninsula too, so yeah, #tcmi is blessed in the suds department... you should come up sometime and tour the incredible proliferation of hops fields too, if you are so inclined... cheers

your posts are simultaneously wonderful and agonizing (esp. at 11 am!!)
but actually thanks; love reading about/grilling/eating delicious meats

Funny stuff here; apparently Minnesota has upped their game to some next-level kicker psych-out material (on mobile, so sorry no embed): http://www.dailydot.com/lol/dramatic-chipmunk-football-teams/

for that informative write-up; would have loved to be there, but will have to wait for Mr. Bacon to make his way to TC this fall for the writer's series.

|5 weeks 4 days ago||it was my understanding...||
|5 weeks 4 days ago||i too am prepared to have an irrational amount of faith||
for this season, and to place my hopes and dreams in an unreasonably optimistic outlook that includes interpreting the following stats to portend a great karmic reversal of fortune for the maize & blue:
"In 1969, a first-year Michigan coach by the name of Bo Schembechler guided the Wolverines to a 24-12 upset win over the top-ranked Buckeyes in Ann Arbor. In 1995, a first-year Michigan coach by the name of Lloyd Carr led the Wolverines to a 31-23 win over the No. 2 Buckeyes in Ann Arbor. In fact, since 1930, first-year Michigan coaches are 7-1 against Ohio State and a perfect 4-0 at home."

The Big Ten Conference announced the 2015 preseason coaches' poll Wednesday (Aug. 19), with the University of Michigan men's soccer team being chosen to finish seventh. Additionally, seniors Colin McAtee and William Mellors-Blair along with sophomore goalkeeper Evan Louro were named to the Big Ten Players to Watch list.

of 106,000 people, contrasted with the jubilance of the CU fans, was, quite simply, unforgettable.
and no one left... for the longest time, an entire stadium stood there, just stunned
it was the worst

anyone around ann arbor playing on a regular basis? http://www.usquidditch.org/
we just played with a group of 9-10 year olds for my son's birthday, and it was pretty awesome

...throwing was an art as well, since you had to try to ensure that the roll unfurled properly as it descended... you never wanted to have a 2' tail and a roll that just flew threw the air without trailing down. when lots of people in the endzones got their throws just right, it was truly a sight to behold
i really do miss those days in the stadium. TD celebrations, especially in big games against big opponents (OSU et al) felt momentous in a way that marshmallows (and certainly pompoms) never really could.

...just like up here in the northern climes, you have to find the right people. I moved from Saline to Little Rock in '88, and got to experience Michigan fan-dom down south (in what used to be Southwest Conference territory) and found that all my high-school friends and folks who ended up going to Fayetteville for school tended to be good ol' fashion football fans, with a good dose of realism not unlike those of us who are long-term denizens of this blog... plus, if you go down there in a couple of years, you should really make it a point to enjoy the local grilling expertise, as these guys (and others like them) are quite skilled in the art of putting flesh on a grill and making it taste incredibly good:

|13 weeks 5 days ago||can we list the things that teenage||
recruits are thinking about two days before the 4th of July? Here's a stab...
1. skimpy bathing suits;
2. beach/fireworks/parades/family/ etc.
157. random sports radio interview between two guys that don't like each other.
this may be a topic of discussion today, but it has no staying power as a "story"; no one is going to still be talking about this in August, or November, or February.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||don't forget another gem of the northern lower||
which is the Pigeon River country; lots of great forestland there, and ample fishing opportunities. this guy pieced together a ~22 mile three day hike... http://www.trimbleoutdoors.com/ViewTrip/497189
but there are lots of trails you could take...http://www.michigantrailmaps.com/member-profile/3/84/

was going to suggest the loop that involves Chapel Falls & Mosquito Beach as well; you can do a simple three day (2 night) hike starting at the trailhead to the Chapel Rock area backcountry campground (stay the night), then hiking along the gorgeous shoreline cliffs for a day to Mosquito River campground (stay the night), then hiking back to the trailhead the next day.
used to lead intro-hiking trips with 6th graders on that loop, and it is both very simple, and stunningly beautiful; Lake Superior is cold, but swimmable at Mosquito beach too.
