|4 days 10 hours ago||I think you are right re: Speight||
but as a point of comparison Shane Morris did not earn an invite to the Elite 11 his first go around either. I think he went to the camp in Dallas (?) and was not the MVP and did not get an invite. It wasn't until he attended his second camp (Ohio?) where he earned an invite. And if memory serves, Morris ended up somewhere in the top 50 (varied by service obviously).
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I'm sure it varries||
from grocery store to grocery store somewhat, but I can tell you Trader Joes is included as are some smaller co-ops I have used (in San Francisco). It has to do with how they are registered with AMEX (ie as a "grocery store" or not). I would suspect that if they take AMEX they would probably fall within the 6% grocery store thing.
The 6% is only on the first $6,000 a year at grocery stores, but thats a fairly large amount of groceries and equals $360 cash back on that amount as compared to $60 (1%) or $120 (2%) you would get from other cards
|3 weeks 1 day ago||American Express Cash Preferred||
Has a $75 annual fee, but if you primarily use your credit card to buy stuff (as opposed to cash/checks) and you buy groceries or gas, you more than make up the difference (6% cash back on groceries, 3% on gas, 1% on everything else)
Of course it is an AMEX so you have to deal with some places not taking it.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Michigan||
I am not Magnus and have no scouting experiance, so I'll field this one:
It is certainly not determinative, but the only Michigan player listed on that MaxPreps top 100 thing is Anthony Herbert (whom I have never heard about).
I would think Mike Weber and Campbell might fight it out for #1 or at least will both be in the top 5. Campbell has a slighty better offer sheet at the moment (Bama, ND and MSU), but I think Webber will have the better offers and be higher ranked when its all said and done (offers right now include UM, OSU, MSU).
I think Brian Cole is another player who will be in the top 5 of the state. I think he is very slightly behing Weber and Campbell. He has 3 good offers as well (UM, OSU and MSU) but has yet to be viewed as much as a National product like Weber and Campbell.
Alabi is another player who will be highly ranked but I think he will be behind the others listed.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||George Campbell||
It seems like George Campbell is going to be a top level guy. Think he will probably be somewhere in the top 5 or 10 WRs. Don't think he will be a top-5 overall guy, but could be a top-25 type player.
Also, based on offer sheet alone (and the very little talk I've heard about 2015) it seems like Jacques Patrick (who I think is a RB) is going to be a top guy, maybe top overall. He has offers from basically everybody and has for a long time.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||ND Lean?||
Yeah where is the ND lean idea coming from? Based on everything I've read, it seems like he is a very slight UM lean. Earlier in the prcoess it seemed like he was a stronger UM lean, but that things have tightened up. Still people seem to be indicating that UM is probably #1 with ND just behind at #2.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Update||
Just as an update, those are the numebrs before JBB committed. We now have 8 commits and 7 ESPN 150s
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Worst of 4||
Worst of the 4 TE that committed today. Blazevich is ranked higher than him as well (although blazevich was kind of independent of the other 3)
|6 weeks 5 days ago||1998||
In 1998 there was at least one car overturned on South U by a "mob." So, there was some damage, but it was hardly a riot. Maybe you avoided the overturning car portion of the "mob."
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Root for OSU||
But more than anything we want OSU to beat Indiana. This may hurt our seeding in the B1G tournament, but an Indiana loss to OSU and UM winning out, gives us a share of the B1G title.
|12 weeks 1 hour ago||I guess I shouldn't||
Say "not long after." It was probably 5-7 years later. But it was at Louisville, after taking that job over the UM job.
|12 weeks 2 hours ago||Rick pitino||
Rick pitino. His affair came out not too long after turning Michigan down (ironically because his wife preferred Louisville)
|12 weeks 2 hours ago||If true||
The moral of the story is, that turning down Michigan might cost you your marriage. That's two coaches who basically accepted the job, ended up turning it down, then having an affair come out.
|14 weeks 1 hour ago||Also||
Join Golden Gate Mother's Group (just search the Internet). Can't remember if that is just for SF or more of the Bay Are (so again if you aren't in SF this might not help, but I think there is an east bay mothers group and something in the South Bay- has a Spanish name that I am drawing a blank on now). Tons of great advice on there, lots of forums with every question you'll have already asked and answered or if you ask one lots of people will respond.
|14 weeks 1 hour ago||Dr Carolyn wright||
Dr wright on California street in SF. She is awesome. If you want a male, i have heard good things about her partner Bernstein. We saw him once when our son was sick.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||B1G||
Didn't the B1G already do this last year? I seem to recall all the B1G school agreeing that all scholorships (starting with 2012 I think) were 4 year scholorships.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Attrition.||
Going to need some attrition to be able to fit all 16 DL. Luckily I think we'll be able to get up to 18 total openings.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Why did she shoot it?||
Just to be contrarian (after a pretty amazing play I have never seen before): Why did she shoot a full court shot when she did? Based on what happens after the play and the time of the video, there were like 6 or 7 seconds left when she shot it. The other team is able to inboound the ball, dribble it up and set up a play at the 3 point line.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||I agree||
I agree with this, but then on the flip side, Payne will have to cover GRIII all the way out to the 3 point line. Think that is a real tough assignment for him as well. That seems like a game where we need GRIII's best game. He has to be active in the offense. He is going to be a real tough cover for MSU.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Injury||
Has to be because of his knee injury- torn ACL & MCL.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah||
for as little as I follow USC-UCLA recuriting (which is very, very little) it seems like he is a strong UCLA lean.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Motivation||
How pumped up is he going to be for those USC-UCLA games. Getting screwed over by your dream school and then going to play for their in-town rival has to be a lot of motivation (to the extent that any player would need to get motivated to play USC).
|18 weeks 23 hours ago||Te'o||
According to ESPN people on Twitter, Te'o said he was not involved int he hoax but it effected his play in the National Championship game. I actually can beleive that, but come on, he was getting run over by linemen all game long. Please don't try to blame the loss in the Championship game on the hoax.
|18 weeks 23 hours ago||Hugs||
Then there were 2 hours 29 minutes of hugs (because the interview was 2.5 hours long)
|18 weeks 23 hours ago||Not a Pistons Fan||
I'm not a Pistons fan, but I thought it was a poor decision when they got rid of him. Think he was and is a very good to great coach.
|18 weeks 23 hours ago||That's not bad||
The takeaway will be that "man that Te'o is such a great teammate. He knew he was going to take flack for this but he didn't want anyone else to suffer."
|18 weeks 23 hours ago||I mean||
He has to at least admit that he embellished the love right? There is no way he can tow the line that this really was his true love. Can he?
|18 weeks 23 hours ago||Assume he is totally innocent||
Why does he not do an on camera interview?
Is it just that he hates being on camera (seem to not be the case since he did the college game day interviews)?
Is it because this is a real personal issue and it would be difficult to go on camera and admit that you were fool for 4 years- basically admitting that you are either a huge idiot or extremely gullible. (This is the only logical guess I can come up with)
Anything you guys can think of?
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Yes||
|18 weeks 1 day ago||The Bottom Line||
So all the bottom line is saying (and all the tweets I've seen) is that he denies that he "created the hoax" and he couldn't be part of something like that. That at least is not an outright statement he didn't learn it at somep point and go along with it. Will be interesting to see what his entire interview says.
