|6 days 10 hours ago||Feeling Old||
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.

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!
|5 weeks 4 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!

I was raised on Michigan sports, but 17 years in Starkville with 11 years of teaching has led to an eventual change in top loyalty. I have 20 current or former students on the Mississippi State Football 2-deep and have a 1.5 mile golf cart ride to the stadium to see the guys I know play Alabama, LSU, and Ole Miss.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Picks||
12 - UNLV - weakest team we play
11 - Oregon State - home opener, stadium will be rocking
10 - Northwestern - we seem to own them
9 - Indiana - we own them too
8 - Rutgers - home revenge, it will be 2 decades before Rutgers wins in AA
7 - BYU - home momentum
6 - Minnesota - good team on the road, but Harbaugh has 2 weeks to prepare
5 - Maryland - revenge
4 - Penn State - feeling less confident now, difficult road game
3 - Utah - tough team on the road
2 - Ohio State - we have played them tougher than the Spartans lately
1 - Michigan State - a game I would love to see us win

I was a the ALCS in 1984. The wave was impressive there!
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Tradition!||
It's nice to see Coach Harbaugh continuing existing traditions begun under other coaches, like the BBQ, and not trying to start new traditions like RichRod did with the BBQ.
|24 weeks 11 hours ago||The NCAA||
mandates a one year competition ban for any student athlete who fails a banned substances test. Individual universities are encouraged to have their own testing policies and to adhere to those policies. The NCAA does not set terms of competition suspension for failing a university test.

The German psychiatrist seems sadistic, not masochistic. Other than that, spot on!

But I would need to see competent QB on the field next fall before placing such a bet . We will be great again. I am not convinced 2015 will be a good (by Michigan standards) year.

Is a nice location. It is on the gulf with great seafood and some activities. At least the players can go to the beach. Birmingham and Montgomery are not so great.

Once you read a little you'll feel compelled to read some more. Also cracking is something that happens to buckeyes.

JH is headed to AA to meet with Raiders officials away from the watchful eye of the 49ers. Maybe the moon landing was faked. Maybe the Earth really is flat.

|35 weeks 2 days ago||He's||
Not coming because he is too good at the NFL level to leave and even if he does take the Michigan job he is not a very good coach.

If RichRod/hoke had us at 68.3% the bump would mean we would never lose again.
