Peppers at 10, which seems low.

This is a serious question and not meant to be sarcastically antagonistic towards Hillary fans/voters: Has she been back to Flint since the Michigan primary election when Bernie surprised all the pollsters by beating her? If she has been back since the primary, I'll be more inclined to believe that her previous visits weren't just the actions of a typical politician pandering for votes.
I think for the first time in a long time, Michigan could be in play. And that could decide the election if things are close in November.
P.S. No politics, eh?

These two sentences mean very different things:
"they already fired Art Briles, the only great football coach they’ve ever had because of his role in the scandal"
"because of his role in the scandal, they already fired Art Briles, the only great football coach they’ve ever had"

how does it compare to Redd's Wicked Apple Ale?
Does Jake Rudock drink Red's while Jake Ruddock drinks Redd's?

Hey there, ND Sux,
There's no need for "ducks"
We must pity poor Borges
Because although he was gorgeous
He didn't have Harbaugh's QB mux*
What is this mux I speak of?
It's simple you see
4 players go in
and out pops a QB
A QB so talented and bright
above his head shines a light
Because the output of the QB mux
will remind you of the Lucks
His passing will be out-of-sight
*a "mux" is a common nickname for a multiplexer, used in microelectronics. A mux selects from among multiple inputs and provides one output depending on the setting.

that "Jake Rudockwho" guy. It's almost unfair because Harbaugh has that mysterious "Harbuagh" guy to help him out. It would be like if Mike D'antoni had a special assistant QB coach at MSU named Mark Dantonionio

Peppers vs a hurricane, who wins? What if the name of the hurricane is Hurricane Peppers?

This seems like the most appropriate response to any draftageddon post.
I can handle 2 rounds at a time. That leaves me wanting MOAR draftageddon, but then you do back-to-back 3 rounds of coverage and I gotta admit, it's a little hard to slog through.

Give him a break. But I do think koalas are vegetarians. Never heard of bamboo ribs.

so maybe it was Brandon's mistake in not putting up the coin to make up the difference between living in SoCal and Ann Arbor. Hoke should have asked Brandon to pay for Sipe to come with him. Quarterback is sort of an important position, or so I'm told, and Borges just isn't a QB coach.
|5 days 2 hours ago||half-baked ideas||
Bill Simmons had a podcast guest who rambled on and on about half-baked ideas. One of my favorite half-baked ideas that I came up with is to make an NFL team out of service academy graduates. They would be the 33rd team in the NFL. They wouldn't have a home stadium. Instead, one year they would play all the AFC teams and the next they would play all the NFC teams. These would all be road games. What you would have is a traveling team of ambassadors for the service academies. They would spend the week in your town extolling the virtues of the academies and doing recruiting for volunteers.
This would serve two purposes. 1) Instead of enriching the 32 owners exclusively, some of that Network TV financed NFL coin would come back to the taxpayers. 2) The football programs at the academies would be improved because the prospective players would see that there is a pathway to the NFL. Instead of serving their 5 year committments in Afghanistan or overseas protecting our allies, they could work in the states for 5 years as NFL players and recruiters. After 5 years, they'd be free agents to join any NFL team.
Maybe for the first few years, you schedule these as exhibitions until you can get the strength of the team right so that they are not getting blown out, (we don't want them to be the Washington Generals) but we also don't want them winning the Super Bowl every year because then the owners would nix the idea.

In Water World. And you can add Jeanne Tripplehorn to that. Other than the awful acting, horrible plot, and ridiculous dialogue, it was a good movie.

Yeah, he was terrible in From Dusk to Dawn, and you can take my word for that since I've seen that movie thousands of times for obvious reasons.

Hoke's biggest mistake may have been not bringing Brian Sipe with him from SDSU. I think it would be easier to recruit QBs by telling them, "you get to learn from NFL QB Brian Sipe," as opposed to, "you get to run every trick play from Al Borges' playbook,"

|1 week 5 hours ago||taste||
I was in Taiwan for 2 weeks and I can attest to the fact that the food tasted much better over there. There was so much more flavor. I think the US farm factory practices have removed a lot of the natural flavors of foods. Yes, we can feed our people, but it's a bland existence.

I don't think they are thinking this through far enough. If Rutgers and Purdue leave, Indiana is doomed to be the doormat of the B1G for eternity.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Independents||
Texas, Notre Dame, and BYU should get together, encourage some other teams to join them, and form the Independent Conference. They can schedule games against each other, and at the end of the season, the two best independent teams can play each other to see who is the best independent team.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Special teams||
I think the ST were average last year, but compared to recent prior seasons, yeah, they looked badass. There's a good anecdote in the Mike Reinhold diary about Bo coaching special teams and the emphasis he put on them. I suspect Harbaugh learned that lesson well and we won't need to worry about the loss of Baxter. I hope.

ST2 was born in Pittsburgh, so I've always been partial to Pitt.
I have three monitors at work side-by-side-by-side. I pulled up PMS7406 and put it on all three at the same time. Each monitor showed a slightly different version of the color based on my monitor settings, I suppose. At this point, who knows? Let's just beat the snot out of everybody and worry about the proper shade of maize later.
|1 week 1 day ago||Dieter Heren||
I may have told this story before, but it fits with this diary. My brother and I used to play a backyard field-goal kicking game. The object was to see who could make more kicks between two conveniently grown trees. To make it more interesting, the one not kicking was allowed to rush and try to block the kick. I always chose to be Dieter Heren when trying to block the kick. I can't tell you what kicker I was, but I was always Dieter Heren, probably because he has such a fun name to pronounce when you are excited about a kick getting blocked. I'll blame Ufer for that.
EDIT: apparently, Ufer died a couple years before Heren started playing at UofM. That doesn't matter. He's still the voice of Michigan Football to me. You should have heard him calling Denard's 87 yard TD run against ND. Sounded like that Dennis Bergkamp guy.

In Bo's book, "Bo's Lasting Lessons" he talks about an undersized nose guard. He preferred quick guys at the nose who could get into the backfield and disrupt plays (hence the line about being at a party you weren't invited to) to space-eaters who could absorb a double-team.

Sorry, but I just don't care about these stories about OSU. I find the whole thing kind of Boren.

MJ won 3 with Grant and three with Rodman. Pippen is the most overrated member of the 50 greatest NBA players. MJ carried him to those 6 titles.
