Brian Griese... 1997 National Champion and Rose Bowl MVP. I still get emotional when I watch the clip of Keith Jackson announcing the MVP award and Bob is crying. Keith says something like, "You just cry, Hoss"

Guess I picked the wrong month to give up drinking....

I think a little too much attention is being paid to the ballz...

I beat a kid in an elementary spelling bee who ended up graduating from Harvard. Do I get a cookie?

A small part of me is sad to see him leave...

That site is odd. Do I read the one table correctly that if Michigan finishes with 20 wins in the regular season, their NCAA bid% is only 11.4%? Which means if Michigan finishes 4-6 in the last 10 games that they most likely don't make the tourney?
|1 week 6 days ago||Lambda Lambda Lambda was the||
Lambda Lambda Lambda was the male fraternity. You were probably thinking about Omega Mu. I don't know the kid but if he went Tri Delt... he most likely would not go Lambda Lambda Lambda.

Gary will be in the NFL in less than 4 years, so maybe the statement has some truth to it?

But there is no McFly on the staff... Maybe substitute a McDoom on the field?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I want to see a fantasy camp||
I want to see a fantasy camp like you see with baseball. Let me suit up as a Wolverine and train for a few days, then let me scrimmage against the actual team at the end.
Nothing would beat the feeling of trying to run a bubble screen and have Jabrill Peppers blow it/you up!
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I choose business-like and||
I choose business-like and will now refer to when a coach pulls a scholarship offer from a recruit as "transitioning out"...
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I can't blame the school on||
I can't blame the school on their recruiting tactics when it is well within the rules of the NCAA to be able to offer basically everyone without any penalty. Until the NCAA changes the rules and overall system, this will continue to happen.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I wish it was last year, but||
I wish it was last year, but it was actually in 1997 or 98... getting old and can't remember too well. The $5 deal was take out only, but since my roommate ate there every day, we could get delivery. It was fun to order and ask for them to bring it over because we were too drunk to walk across the street.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I lived across the street||
I lived across the street both JR and SR year from Bells. $5 Large cheese pizza and large drink. Also remember when they changed the price to $5.25 and I asked why. The owner paused a long time and then said that the price of cheese increased.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||You have to leave some||
You have to leave some experiences for when he is actually enrolled in classes! However, I agree. Backroom pizza following a full night at Rick's is a true UM experience!
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Should have taken him to||
Should have taken him to Bell's Pizza on the corner of Packard and State... show him what real college life is like.

Keep them for national signing day if Gary commits to Ole Miss...
|2 weeks 6 days ago||If only this storm would come||
If only this storm would come across the Atlantic and settle in on the Alps. It has been a few years since the last good powder season. Disappointing to see cities that have no ski resorts getting so much snow.
|3 weeks 1 hour ago||A quiet period does not stop||
A quiet period does not stop a coach from contacting the recruit. He can still be recruited, just that coaches cannot watch competition in person. He can also visit campus and have a face-to-face. Not too much changes.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||National Signing Day is||
National Signing Day is February 3rd which is the FIRST day that recruits can sign with a school. The last day is April 1st. Even if someone finds out 2 weeks before the first day they are allowed to sign, they still have 2 months to find a different school. There is no harm in that.
Just remember Malik McDowell signed with MSU on the LAST day.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I just checked on the Dish||
I just checked on the Dish Anywhere App and it is showing ABC on the guide along with the game time of 1PM on the 1st. My sister lives in Ohio and I use the app here in Switzerland. I am a little confused now...
|16 weeks 5 days ago||On the website, the 3:30pm||
On the website, the 3:30pm equivalent start is saying a game on Fox. Penn State v. OSU is the only game where they mention by name. The American Forces Network Europe is showing the game live on the Atlanic Prime channel... maybe they would be willing to change if they get AFN...
|16 weeks 5 days ago||I would rather compare Rudock||
I would rather compare Rudock to 1997 Brian Griese. What you have extrapolated for Rudock for a season is similar to Griese... We all know how the 1997 season ended. I refuse to recognize any other comparison.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Hooters of Budapest||
Forget watching the game and watch the waitresses there... can't remember if they have a TV. Check the schedule of the American Forces Network, they carry college football and AFN Europe is in most packages.
|20 weeks 9 hours ago||This confuses me a little.||
This confuses me a little. Doesn't the collective bargaining agreement in the NFL say players get 47% of the total revenue of the league? I don't think it is prorated for more successful revenue generating teams. To make a comparison like this to college football, you would need the revenue figures for all FBS teams and then take the average per player. I am not sure it is calculated on gross or net either.
Another thing is, the NFL minimum salary is around $420k a year for an active roster player and $112k for a full year on the practice squad. You can't tell me that college players deserve to be paid more than an active roster NFL player? This is what their analysis suggests.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Interesting... I have been||
Interesting... I have been here 10 years, no intention of going anywhere else for the moment. I use my sister's Dish Anywhere to get the games which also gives me BTN2Go... Definitely can get a beer and watch a game sometime.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Just checked AFN Europe||
Just checked AFN Europe schedule... the game is being replayed at 14:00 on Friday afternoon. Full media blackout might be hard until then.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Where in Switzerland are you?||
Where in Switzerland are you? I am in Geneva.
I recall being able to buy a daily pass to BTN2Go international to watch games, they normally have them to watch at midnight on the day after the game is played if not broadcast by BTN. They normally don't show the scores. I would assume that you might be able to watch it by 6am on Friday morning in Western Europe...

Do you actually live in Ibiza? I spent 48 hours there partying and felt like death. Could never live there.
