Haters gonna hate. Winners think it's great.
Go Shamrocks. '88.

Hope to meet some of you before the game.

Dish is the easiest way. Been doing it for years.

It's the Japanese name for the type of creature (species?) exemplified by Godzilla, Wheatley, Asiasi, etc. Brian coined that phrase this week after seeing them together vs. Hawaii.

I attended both our game in AA and this one tonight. Picked a hell of a doubleheader!

There's also now Pluckers on S. Lamar as a family-friendly option.

Pluckers on S. Lamar for family-friendly, Haymaker for everyone else.

Mine arrived in Texas. Excellent job by all behind it.

I appreciate the explanation. I've never seen it in male sports, so I surmised it had something to do with softball (or women's sports) culture.

Watching some of Michigan's games this year, I've noticed several players (particularly Betsa) smiling broadly when facing a pressure situation or before a big pitch. Does anyone know if they're coached to do this?
|50 weeks 2 days ago||No, just an observation that||
No, just an observation that you're so comfortable in your bubble wherever you happen to be that you'd never bother to find out that Texans just might not be the idiots you think we are. Have fun with that, sir. Bless your heart.
|50 weeks 2 days ago||Come on down and see for||
Come on down and see for yourself. I went to Detroit CC and thought that was well-played. Moved out to the Bay Area and thought Concord DeLaSalle was light years better. Then I got here. The top teams regularly have 6-8 D1 players sign every year. Add that up among three classes and you basically have a young D1 team. Average them out as mid-tier D1 players, with really good coaching and 6-8 years in the same system (back to 5th grade) and you get impressive results.

I live in their rival's district (Lake Travis) which seats about 12,000. Unlike most games in Michigan, the home stands are typically SRO. Away stands attendance depends on the quality of the opponent (distance is usually irrelevant).
If you've never been to a big-time 6A HS game in Texas, you're missing out. It's played at a level that rivals even mid-tier college games. The Katy/Lake Travis final last year was one of the most impressive displays of pure football I've seen in a long time, particularly by the Katy defense.

...and never come down to Texas to find out how wrong you are.
We'll be just fine without you.

Unless he reached out to any and all coaches that would be potential replacements and they all shot him down, so he was forced to stand pat. My, how that program has cratered.

Can't think of a better comparison.

My sister lives in Lexington, SC. They get ice storms. They get hurricanes. Oh yeah, and it's as humid as...well, use your imagination.
I live in central Texas and the weather is far better in total than either SC or SE Michigan. By their logic, UT should get every player they want.

My freshman year as well. Go Blue.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Amen||
Was happy I could thank him in person in Utah. Outstanding work.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Congratulations Cook family!||
My son Desmond Carter approves of the name. Blessings to all of you!

Lots of tickets given to the military.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Halftime meetup for those at the game?||
Would love to meet any other MGoBrethren here.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Warmup notes||
Onwenu is a large human being. Seems like a lot of his weight is on his lower half.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||At the game, Sec 115 front row||
Right in front of the "announce" area. Currently three hats on the table, Bama, Michigan, and Georgia (appears to be set up for Nauta) (?)
|1 year 27 weeks ago||No beef rib fan's life is||
No beef rib fan's life is complete without visiting the Louie Mueller BBQ in Taylor, TX (near Austin). I'm fortunate enough to live within driving distance and can honestly say that not only is theirs the best beef rib in existence, it's the best smoked meat of any kind anywhere. The average beef rib there is 1.75lbs (!).

Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati. Dump of dumps, but winning the '96 title game made it oh, so worth it.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Pork can be a singular exception to that rule||
Simply because the dry-rub / barking technique doesn't work quite as well on that type of meat. I've seen it done, but most prefer the sauce method.
When we talk about BBQ down here, the default subject is brisket unless something else is specified. Sorry if that wasn't clear.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||My vote for best BBQ sauce around Austin||
Surprisingly, I think it's the one thing Salt Lick does better than anyone. Their Spicy variety is the absolute bomb.
Second place is Louie Mueller's jalapeno pulled pork sauce. Phenomenal.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Agreed||
We, the consumers, are the winners.
My vote if you include nearby towns is Louie Mueller in Taylor. Wayne's beef rib is still the best meat I've ever put in my mouth (and I've put a lot in my piehole). I'd put it up against anything in Austin proper, now or previous.
If you've never been to Snow's in Lexington, go. The pork steak is beyond awesome. Dare I say, Harbaugh-level?
