|1 day 7 hours ago||Well then||
Sixth St. was definitely the right place to go.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Amy Winehouse.||
Practically stamped on his forehead. Sad.
|1 day 21 hours ago||With different timing||
he could have been one of the all-time Michigan greats. All he needed was a decent coaching staff and a normal Michigan team around him. Even without that, his name is all over the M record books for individual game passing stats.
|1 day 21 hours ago||That's great.||
Now go get your fuckin' shine box.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Damn.||
|2 days 5 hours ago||Avon, IN Office of Tourism||
Will not be sending Brandon Peters a Christmas card this year.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Can we just agree as a community||
that although Brandon Peters came out strong, Devin Bush wins the drawing competition?
EDIT: I should have scrolled down to at least Smoothitron's comment. It appears we do have a general consensus.
Also, I think I like it so much because it reminds me of Where the Wild Things Are.
|2 days 7 hours ago||Can't believe how quick his feet are at that size.||
he's a like a TE version of Jerome Bettis. Dudes that big should not be able to put moves on DBs, but there it is on film. Damn. Freak athlete.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Watched on a Macbook Pro running Safari||
and had no problems other than it took 2 hours out of my day because I couldn't stop watching. I thought it was glorious other than a few awkward pauses when teleprompters were going too fast for Ric Flair or other presenter-type glitches.
|2 days 14 hours ago||I'll go to a Sparty site for schadenfreude purposes||
when we win on the field and not sooner.
|3 days 4 hours ago||To put it in perspective||
Texas signed 8 Rivals 4-star players in a 24 hour period.
That number again is 8.
That's a lot of "Howdy" posts on their blogs.
|3 days 5 hours ago||I'm not even as ecstatic as I thought I'd be||
because I'm so emotionally exhausted by the whole process. I'm just relieved, man.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Did someone remember||
to actually invite any recruits to this thing?
|5 days 14 hours ago||Or OP could just provide some basic modicum of information||
when referencing relatively obscure people, places, or events. A post isn't supposed to be a homework assignment.
Now excuse me while I think of an obscure Simpsons reference I can drop here.
|1 week 23 hours ago||What this board has always suffered from||
is a distinct lack of posts that begin "I was playing Counter Strike..."
|1 week 1 day ago||It is almost incomprehensible||
It is almost incomprehensible how lucky we were to have Hackett to be the post-Brandon turnaround guy. On the other hand, maybe we were owed some good karma after our wander in the desert.

|1 week 1 day ago||East, West, North,||
or South of the Pecos.
|1 week 1 day ago||It certainly does.||
But it will feel much better when we're running with the big boys on the field. I think we could do it this year. Damnit, it feels like about 5 years until September.
|1 week 2 days ago||I kinda think you're right on this one||
I watched the highlights and I feel like I'm watching a poor man's Devin Funchess in a way, which ought to be a good thing considering Funchess is about to start in the Super Bowl, but he looks so much less polished and less of a pure football player (compared to a guy like Khaleke Hudson who is pure as the driven snow in football terms).
Still, a lot of major programs were hot after the kid, and a couple of years of Harbaugh boot camp and I'll bet he could be something special.
EDIT: From the video, here's what was worrying me--
1. He seems to walk around a lot during ongoing plays.
2. For someone who looks as physically dominant compared to the other kids on the field, he doesn't necessarily play dominant. He doesn't ever really shed that first tackler, for example.
3. Doesn't like to attack the ball.
Still, obviously has the athleticism to play at the highest level, and the offense he was in (in highlights, anyway) mostly consisted of short dump passes. Could be a really exciting dude being moved all over the field to create matchup problems.
|1 week 3 days ago||Does he||
get to keep the jet?
|1 week 3 days ago||Harbaugh's tribute vid||
from Wolverine Historian has Jokisch all over it. If you're not old enough to remember ol' no. 84, here's a primer. I especially recommend the South Carolina game ('85) because it's called by Keith Jackson and Jokisch has a big day (see Pt II starting at 2:30).
Tribute Part I
3:08 , 4:02, 8:13 , 8:24 (TD), 9:02 (great yakety sax by JH!), 9:19, 10:34, 13:52
Tribute Part II
1:56 (TD), 2:30 (Keith Jackson!), 3:00 (KJ), 3:12 (KJ), 5:18, 7:39
The other thing I learned by re-watching these vids is what a total badass TE Eric Kattus was. He's scoring TDs left and right in these videos.
|1 week 3 days ago||Harbaugh "debunks" whatever Nebraska told Allen||
Per Maize & Brew (LINK)
|1 week 3 days ago||So excited about this kid.||
That highlight vid is just crack. If I could watch it all day and keep my job, I would.
|1 week 3 days ago||How many stars? How much more room in class?||

|1 week 4 days ago||I was glad Coppola had enough respect for Tessio||
to not show his whacking. Some guys deserved to die on screen (Carlo). Some didn't.
|1 week 4 days ago||I think this is great.||
The college football talking heads in the studios are so... freaking... generic and corporate these days. I love eccentrics like Holtz and Corso.
|1 week 4 days ago||That song||
was evidently mandatory for every 80's high school movie prom scene. Like every one.
|1 week 4 days ago||Oh yeah, they end up at Louis' Italian-American Restaurant||
and that has the good food. According to Tessio. And old-fashioned toilets. That is some freaking memory. Any Italian restaurant in NY, and the guy can give you both a food and men's room review.
|1 week 4 days ago||Except Sollozzo was picking the place||
Michael and company weren't even supposed to know where they were going.
|1 week 4 days ago||I always loved||
that the first thing Tessio says when they find out the meeting with Sollozzo and Captain McCluskey is at Jack Dempsey's restaurant is "good food." Italians, man. Even if you're only there to whack a guy, the pasta needs to be al dente.
