He's like Fred Jackson, but stong.

Michael Thomas got drafted twice before Burbridge
|2 days 2 hours ago||An LS before Burbridge?!?||
|2 days 2 hours ago||Great pick||
I also love that Zettel pick. Burbridge still available. Hmmm...

Stafford will get destroyed behind that young line. Once they mature and gel, Rudddock will be ready to step in.

That leaves you room for one in-game injury. Are you insane?

|3 days 51 min ago||Maryland game||
that picture is taken roughly from my dad's season ticket area (section 11, row 74) and includes me as a dot in the student section.
The turf comment reminded me that I too have a piece of the old artificial turf, only I didn't have to pay for it. My brother and a few of his friends were walking around the stadium one evening when the University was pulling the turf out. They noticed that the gates weren't locked. So they snuck in, grabbed some turf and got out. I think he may have also snagged a "Section 11" wooden sign. For Christmas that year, he did the box inside a box inside a box thing. When we finally got to the present, it was a square inch of turf and his story.

I heard Rich Eisen say this was nothing more than a "man bites dog" story. I'd say it's even less surprising than that. This is a "dog bites man" story. The truth is revealed, so what. Only a very naive person would have believed that Ole Miss was on the up and up.

I've never seen that, but by the way you guys are describing it, that's definitely something I wish I had played growing up. Especially the boxing gloves.
|4 days 52 min ago||Greg Mattison signed hat||
A spartan friend of my dad's saw Greg at a B10 function and asked for an autograph, knowing my dad would appreciate it. My dad gave it to me before he passed away.
See, not all spartans are jerks, just most of them.
I also have my replica #4 away jersey from when Jim Harbaugh was QB at Michigan. It's a little more authentic than a typical jersey in that the shoulders are sized to accommodate shoulder pads, but it's real narrow at the waist. It's too small to fit my 11 year old, so I just keep it in the closet.
I also kept my Rose Bowl ticket stub from the game we lost to Vince Young and Texas, but mostly Vince Young. That would be higher on my list if we actually won the game.
|4 days 1 hour ago||Recess||
yeah, I forgot to add the part about recess. We usually played at school on the blacktop and would come back to class with our shirts untucked if not torn, sweating all over, and your hands and clothes would get dirty from falling on the blacktop and then you'd wipe your face with your dirty hands.
I take back what I said about kicking. I think that was allowed and if you didn't like it, you just didn't play.
I saw my son and his friends playing a schoolyard game awhile back. They had a tennis ball and a wall and all sorts of rules I couldn't understand, but it made sense to them and they had a great time. Meanwhile, I was thinking, boys, there's a basketball hoop right over there. Why don't you play a real game. But I must've gotten old and forgotten that the best games are the ones you create with your buddies.

I have trouble distinguishing the MBB and MMB abbreviations. When I first saw the thread title, I thought, "wow, the Michigan Marching Band offered someone a scholarship. Times have changed."

Durkin was guilty of looking ahead and had a bad day.
English proved he couldn't defend the spread.

why not? they do that every season on the Bachelor. Right, WD?
|6 days 1 hour ago||Old QBs||
It's not completely unprecedented to play into your 40's:
I grant you that the game has changed since Warren Moon and George Blanda played, but in a lot of ways, it has become easier for QBs to play longer - rules to protect them, better nutrition and travel conditions, etc.
I'm 45 and I guarantee you I'm a better badminton player now than I was 5 years ago. Of course, I only started playing 5 years ago.
|6 days 1 hour ago||Rush||
After that, I bought their self-titled debut album thinking, this album HAS TO include Tom Sawyer. Nope, again. Finally I learned my lesson and started checking the song list. I was such a naive shopper.
I think the first non-Rush album I bought was "Out of the Cellar." RATT and roll! Hey, don't judge me, Round and Round was a rockin' tune.
|6 days 1 hour ago||Rush - Grace Under Pressure||
I remember hearing "Tom Sawyer" on the car radio and thinking I had to buy that song. When we got home, I went through the "buy 10 cassettes for a $1" mailer and found the only Rush album they had. I figured that had to be the one, but they didn't list the songs on the album. But, come on, if you are going to sell one Rush album, doesn't it have to be the one with Tom Sawyer on it? At least that's how 14 year old me thought. So I convinced my sister and dad to sign up for the thing, and I got them to allow me to "buy" Grace Under Pressure for a dime, or whatever. I got the cassette, listened to it all the way through, and I was shocked to find out it didn't contain "Tom Sawyer." I mean, even upon getting the cassette and NOT seeing "Tom Sawyer" written on the contents, I still thought that, well, maybe that isn't the name of the song. Caveat Emptor, my friends.
The first 45 I owned was a hand-me-down from my aunt of a couple Beatles songs: Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever. That's still the only Beatles stuff I've ever owned. What can I say, I'm not a fan.

according to him, it's more like 8 or 9 years
|6 days 7 hours ago||MSU-OSU||
I turned on BTN last night and saw MSU playing OSU in a League of Legends video game competition. I called my son into the room and told him his dream had come true, he could go to college on a video game scholarship. I then made some joke about going to MSU and OSU to play video games.
I did not make an OP on the MGoBoard about it.

it was raining! you can't expect people to sit in the rain to watch a football game when HD TVs exist!

I watched him a fair amount of time the second time I watched the spring game. I thought he did well. I wouldn't be surprised to see him be a multi-year starter. He reminds me of those linemen Iowa gets that makes me wonder, why can't we get some of those guys? Well, we may have found one.

It was a long time ago, so I don't remember the specifics. It was probably a link from a Bill Simmons or ESPN.com article.
Did anyone else notice on the previews (/advertisement) HBO did before GoT last night, Bill Simmons got an ~1 second long screen shot for his show? In a 2-3 minute long montage of shows, they gave Bill 1 second. Seems fitting.
