|1 week 17 hours ago||EMU vs. Arizona||
My best-friend from high school ran track at Eastern in the late 1980s. I remember him telling me that there was an entire week he couldn't get in the training room. The track trainers had been reallocated to football because Arizona had put a beat down on the football team. It makes me feel good that Michigan is doing this to their opponents.

These are the stat lines for the three QB's Mississippi State used against a weak opponent. I like Rudock, but want to see these kind of statlines against weak teams in the future.

On both sides of the ball! It has been a decade!

I think there is another explanation in the case of "Ruddock." The O and D beside one another on his jersey look quite like a double D. A a glance, OD looks quite similar to DD; especially in the font used on the jersey. I offer this as a partial explanation. For a fan, there is no excuse for not knowing how to spell the 6 letter name of your team's starting quarterback.

Leading Perry would have prevented the pick. Perry ran a poor route. High school coaches would have been upset with his lack of precision. He needs to snap that route off at 90 degrees and head for the sideline at full speed. Speed out of the cut is what brings separation. Perry rounded the cut and jogged out of it. He almost seems to sit down out of the cut and then run to the sidelines.
It was an odd route for the for Perry to run. From where he is lined up, he had little room to move toward the sideline.
Rudock should have lead Perry. The worst part of the play was that Rudock threw behind the receiver. When quarterbacks take the Oath of Eric Hipple, they pledge not to harm thier own teams. Rudock broke the pledge. If Perry had run a crisp route, he would have been even nearer the sideline. A good throw is to the outside away from the corner. At worst, a throw further outside is an incompletion.

comes the miracle. But if it doesn't happen, I have to say that Jim Harbaugh's choice of clothing was excellent!

Should never be the intended receiver!

Rudock brads to get the ball down and Deveon needs to hit the line with some speed!

I was about 10 years old. My dad took me to see UM beat Washington State. Jumbo Elliott and Jaimie Morris were on the cover of the program. Morris was on a stool. I could dig it up and get the date. The game was close, but never in doubt and a great time was had by all.

In Ufer's call of Woolfolk's TD run, he mentions that it esclipsed Tom Harmon's run 39 years earlier as the longest in program history. I was a 9 year-old child when Woolfolk broke off that run and I remember the live radio call. That was 36 years ago, nearly the amount of time that passed between Woolfolk's and Harmon's runs.
Growing up, I thought of Harmon as ancient history and Woolfolk as new and exciting. Time is compressing. I am really old!

I took my son on a tour of Bryant-Denney Stadium last month. They gave away leftover programs from the spring game. I flipped through and saw Damien Harris and DaShawn Hand and felt sad.

I am old, class of 1988. Northville kids in my day were snobby, but lwe had nothing on kids from Rochester, Bloomfield Hills, Birmingham, and the Gross Pointes.

|9 weeks 3 days ago||The Game 1997||
I had been married for six months when my wife's only brother got married in Louisiana. There was no escape. I was a groomsman and the ceremony was 1 hour after kickoff in the wilderness south of Lafayette. He was an LSU grad and a big SEC fan and was very careful to schedule the wedding so that he could watch the Iron Bowl later that day.
This was in the days before internet and the facility, which was very nice, did not have a television. I resorted to running to my car and listening to updates on an AM station out of New Orleans whenever I could break free. Nearly 20 years later, I am still bitter.
My marriage lasted 2 1/2 years. If I had it to do over, I would have skipped the wedding and watched the game.

My oldest son is 16. He is 6'1" and 190#. I would have allowed him to play football, but he lives with my ex-wife who feels differently. There is probably no neat way to address such situations in the survey. Human data is messy.

I recently took my son to tour Bryant-Denny Stadium. If you are near Tuscaloosa, it is well worth the $5 price of admission. I found one thing I would like for Michigan to copy. Their visiting locker room is named in honor of donor James Fail.

Why invest in mudmats when you have slave labor?

I live out-of-state, but have been bringing my kids to Guernsey Farms Dairy to eat ice cream cones on the rock for the past 20 years. That place was a hugh part of my childhood!
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Human Iron Pole Mover||
I moved to Athens, GA in 1993 with a new B.S. degree in psychology, a work history that included waiting tables and working as a mover, and no job prospects. My brother played bass in one of many locally popular bands and I liked the climate. These were reasons enough for me to move in my early 20's.
Upon arrival in Athens, I had trouble finding and work and had to take a job through a temp agency working with a crew delivering whatever this small ironworks plant created. When I hired on, they were fabricating 20-30 foot long balcony supports for 2nd and 3rd floor balconies at an assisted living village. Our job was to take the supports off the truck and carry them to their destinations and hold them vertical until they could be bolted into place.
The units under construction were about 200 yards across a muddy field from the access road. The truck was not able to cross the field. It was February in late Georgia, which meant the red clay froze into a rutted doomscape overnight only to melt into a boot grabbing suction trap in the afternoon. Every morning, 4-6 of us would stumble 200 yards across the ruts to deliver the massive iron poles in the morning and then slog through ankle deep mud to do the same in the afternoon. I only stayed on for two weeks.
This job beat out the 80 hour per week salaried methadone counseling position with the medical director who through things at the staff during abusive meetings and the community mental health counselor job where I was not allowed to cut a 12 hour shift short by 3 hours to get home to my family as Hurricane Katrina approached!
