|14 hours 20 min ago||Green||
Green weighed 270 pounds in high school. At this rate, there'll be nothing left of him by the time he graduates.
I look at that O-line graph and just hope Miller's a true 299 and has improved over the summer. A little experience along the line would be nice. But if Kugler wins the job, so be it.

|1 day 10 hours ago||Hype||
I looked up the word "hype" in the dictionary just to be sure I wasn't missing something. The first definition is, "to stimulate, excite or agitate." The music didn't really stimulate or excite me. Some of the clips were good, but there were too many negatives to get excited about the coming season (OSU followed by the PSU and MSU games.) Next I looked up agitate. One of it's definitions is "perturb." So in the sense that this video greatly perturbed me, I'm willing to concede that it's one solid hype video.

As I was watching it, I thought, well, skip the first minute and maybe it'll be pretty good. Then it was, skip the first two minutes, then Billy Bob and Rocky started talking and I figured you could skip the first three minutes. Basically, what that video shows is that Smith and Green each had one good run last year. I give that video a thumbs down.
|1 day 15 hours ago||My list||
I took most of my road trips when the B1G 10 still had, you know, ten teams. I never got to Evanston for a game, but saw the rest. From best to worst, I'd rank them thusly:
1. Madison, made that trip four times. Their band is great and the students really get into the games. The city is really nice to walk around.
2. Indiana. That was always a guaranteed win. Sort of a low-stress, relaxing weekend trip. You get to chill out and watch Michigan win a football game. What's not to like?
3. Iowa. Flew there in a four-seater, and took a photo with their mascot. Cool dude.
(would slot Notre Dame in here.)
4. Minnesota. I went when they were playing outside, a couple stadiums ago. I had my first Whopper on a trip to Minnesota. It's really cold there, though, and the drive takes forever.
5. Purdue. Just really dirty, what with all that train smoke and proximity to Gary, Indiana.
6. Illinois. The whole place smells like shit, and you have to deal with them thinking we're rivals.
7. MSU. I grew up in East Lansing, so reading the MGoBloggers bash my former hometown was tough to take, but they are right.
8. Ohio State. I'll admit, that's a scary trip. You are basically on edge the whole time wondering which psychopath is going to notice your Michigan items and go full metal jacket on you.

is proof that the movie, Idiocracy, is a documentary.

I guarantee that neither Bieifeldt nor Biefeldt starts. Bielfeldt is a maybe.

just putting "/s" at the end of a stupid comment shouldn't excuse it. It wasn't sarcastic, it was just stupid. Yeah, there are idiots out there that make ridiculous comments, but we don't need to be reminded of that with a "/s" comment.

Forget RDT, mGrowOld is actually Bilbo Baggins!

but if it's got to be a college coach, I'd go with anyone who runs the wishbone.

First, find a cowbell. Second, get a drumstick. Third, bang that cowbell for 10 hours a day.
Fourth, profit, I guess?

round 20 pick was epping brilliant
|1 week 18 hours ago||Glasgow||
is a walk-on. I'm not sure how much recruiting was done there. If a player with ability wants to play for your program and pay his way to do so, I think you give him a chance. If he messes up once, you punish him accordingly and watch him closely after that.

West Wacker or Big Beaver?

I don't own any pets, but I did have numerous conversations the day after July 4th about how irritated people's pets get by fireworks. That's right, Dave Brandon hates dogs.

To be fair, he was completely covered in stick-um. I don't think he had a choice but to catch the ball. Same goes for my favorite Raider of all time, Lester Hayes.

from different eras is a fool's errand.

I just finished reading Bo's Lasting Lessons. He wrote:
I have no idea what Brad Bates is up to these days, but that's a pretty good endorsement right there.
EDIT: quick google search shows he's the AD at BC.

I'll be happy if our roster has more umlauts on it in '18

I agree, my comparison breaks down almost immediately, but in terms of pure shock factor, the Biakabutuka game is the pinnacle for me.

As far as shocking results go, this ranks right up there with the Biakabutuka game.

I'm 1/4 German? Seems like the right time to mention that.

I'm three blocks away. We're practically neighbors. It's an MGoMiracle.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||In N Out||
I like their burgers and fries, but the name is a misnomer. It's more like, In N wait for half an hour N Out. They opened another one a couple miles from the one nearest my house and I thought that would reduce the traffic a little, but it didn't help at all. I usually end up parking and going inside because the drive through line has dozens of cars in it. My local Carl's Jr. is being renovated (complete tear-down) and I'm starting to go through withdrawal pains.
|3 weeks 12 hours ago||France||
I was in France last week. I was expecting the town I was in to go crazy the night France played in the World Cup. Instead, the game ended 0-0 and everyone was sort of, meh. The following night, Algeria made it into the next round. The streets were full of fans celebrating and honking horns. This went on until around 1am local time, which was rough on me since I had to wake up at 5am and catch a train back to Paris. It seems there are quite a few Algerians living in France.
|3 weeks 17 hours ago||I am Jack's complete lack of surprise||
Wasn't Edward Norton's character named, Jack, as in, I am Jack's raging bile duct. I caught that on the 20th viewing of the movie. There's a whole internet debate on whether that means his name is Jack, or it's just some expression. Speaking of movie quotes, I love circuits and I love lamp.
