my MRI revealed a tear in the supraspinatus. When my Orthopedic got in there he found a tear in the labrum and a third that I do not recall. I was told not to worry about further injury on mine as long as I could tolerate the pain I was ok to do what I wanted until I chose to have surgery. Further injury would not affect the time it took t heal from surgery...which for me was about 1 year.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah...||
but it is not unprecedented...Ohio State lost to Findlay and MSU lost to GVSU in the same year, 2007. MSU was ranked 8th at the time.

Rudock gives Harbaugh the ability to call 3 plays and get into the right one on the line of scrimmage. I think that is why we have seen Jake as the starter...he gives us a schematic advantage. Rudock's limitations are frustrating

I have never been to a school where you did not have to pay to park. The proceed do not necessarily go to athletics, at our school the ROTC handles the parking lot and receives to proceeds from it as well.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||That and weather....||
At 10 PM last night when I checked...
Paramus, NJ 47 degree and 52% humidity
Bradenton, FL 75 degrees and 72% humidity.
I would guess that the temperature at kickoff was close to 85 degrees, I'd bet that is the warmest kickoff temperature Paramus has had all year....and is mild for what IMG is accustomed to. Obviously this has to do with conditioning...but it is hard to prepare for weather you have not been exposoed to.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||They started||
out as the Nick Bolitierri Tennis Academy and helped produce the likes of Andre Agassi and Maria Sharapova, so yeah I guess they take it to another level. This has been going on for decades with private schools and now we find it nauseating. Public schools are now recruiting as well and with open school districts there isn't much that can be done about it...at least not in Florida.

goes a long way.

Harbaugh isn't a big fan of the red shirt, except for QBs and OL. He said in his press conference that this is the time of year that you find out if the freshman can play or not....and the ones that can are the ones will make impactful contributions down the road and into the professional level. I would agree. If you want an elite team, you do not get there by giving mass numbers a 5th year.

possible that your patriotism could be over-the-top....especially at an event like this.

"There's a team criteria, a unit criteria and an individual criteria," Harbaugh said Monday. "Amara Darboh had the most stickers (after the Utah game)."
|11 weeks 2 days ago||#1 looks to be on Graham||
#1 looks to be on Graham Glasgow as well. He doesn't appear to be working very hard to get his body in a position to seal off that hole. He seems to be tap dancing there instead of working to the outside while driving through the block. Once he has position sealing the hole he can work to shield. Because he is not driving and keeping pressure and leverage on the defender, the defender is able to disengage and get into the hole.
#3 I would have to guess that Kalis missed the hole. Poggi and Cole worked a cross block which leads me to believe the hole was off tackle and inside the d-end. FB went outside up to backer and Kalis should have gone inside to lead that play. Perhaps Braden getting blown back knocked Kalis off his track, but he seemed to be in position still to get inside and block the backer. If Smith bounces that he's likely to get brought down by the inside backer as he would have been unblocked and was shooting the gap.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||As I stated up above...||
I see more Ohio State than Florida State gear...in Florida.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||To be honest....||
even in Florida. Florida is very much what have you done lately. Fans change their allegiances regularly to go with whoever is winning (unless it is USF). In the 80's it was all the "U" then FSU, then Florida...so on and so forth. There are few hardcore devoted fans down here. Perhaps its the distance, I am sure the closer you get to each of the schools the more loyal the fanbases are, but from where I am it takes approximately 2.5 hours to get to Miami, 2.5 hours to Gainesville, and 3.5-4 hours to Tallahassee and the situation is very fluid. I see more Ohio State fan gear then I do FSU.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||Bye vs. Buy...||
I was thinking the same thing that Harbaugh was on that question....that playing a B16 team is like having a bye. I have never watched Cowherd before and will try my best to avoid ever watching him again.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||I played against John Hall in||
I played against John Hall in HS and he wasn't very good. He missed multiple fieldgoals against us our senior season. I was shocked when Wisconsin took him and then he spent 10 seasons in the NFL between the Jets and Redskins. He had leg strength, he put the ball through the uprights on a kickoff, which cannot be coached and they apparently fixed the accuracy/confidence issues.

I wonder if Under Armor is going to have some words with Willie Taggert....After July 1st that is!

And the shirt says ELITE through the middle of the block M. I am guessing it is a camp shirt.

Abraham Lincoln should have just kept his mouth shut because it offended people.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah...||
...it was public knowledge that he has a learning disability. Search this site or google and you will find it. I have lived in Florida for my entire professional career (12 years) and have never lived in Detroit so I am not especially concerned about FERPA, IDEA or ADA.
You have made a gross jump in logic here as well. I did not say that giving up or skipping an exam was an effective or acceptible strategy, I merely suggest that you try to have a little empathy. How you deduce that this means I teach my students to "just give up" or to not give full effort at all times is beyond me. Acknowledging and understanding =/= accepting or excusing. Perhaps the differece is lost to you.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||OP states that the tweet...||
was from Todd Howard. Todd attended Bollingbrook High School and according to an article on him was an assistant coach as of 2011. I assume he is probably still there.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Do you know the circumstances....||
surrounding that? Yet you feel free to judge. I work with students with learning disabilities on a daily basis, and one of their first defenses when academic demands get tough is to give up effort. Our system is set up to identify these issues after they present themselves and have caused academic struggles rather than identify is early and work with students before they develop bad habits. At any rate, we are talking about a young man with learning disabilities who has earned 90 credits at the University of Michigan, I would say he has put in alot more work than you can imagine. He made some bad decisions, perhaps out of frustration (another classic behavior of many students with learning disabilities), in skipping finals. Let Harbaugh deal with it and give the condescension a rest.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||I find it....||
hard to believe that you are truly a football coach. You are telling me, that the only contribution a player can make to helping a team win is by making big plays on game day? Do you know how he works in practice? If he is pushing the guys ahead of him for playing time....I would say that is a contribution. If he was being a leader...that is a contribution. A football coach ought to know that if the scout team is doing its job, they are helping the team win. You may not like his dancing, you may think he is overrated as a player, but to say he hasn't done anything to help this team win games is ignorant.
Do you care about all the players on your team? Even the ones that have no chance of contributing on game day? Or are they expendable to you?
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Sooo...||
Did the OP edit his post or did you not read it?
|29 weeks 2 days ago||Well||
Frank did seek advice from Harbaugh and Hoke
|29 weeks 2 days ago||Rotator Cuff...||
When I had my surgery 3 years ago...I was essentially strapped down for 6 weeks and then was asked not to lift more than 5 pounds or lift my arm away from my body for another 6 weeks. 12 weeks out from surgery you have no strength and no range of motion. When I read the article I felt that a 9-12 month return to professional boxing was wishful thinking (granted he has access to better equipment, facilities, and personnel than I do). It is very likely, for a 36 year old man, that this is it for Pacquiao. Additionally, part of the payday is a percentage of the revenue that would likely take a dip in a fight with two men, 37+ and 39+, with one of them coming off a 1 year rehab of a rotator cuff. Are you paying $100 for that? Would you walk away from an estimated $100M+ payday with no guarantees that you would be able to ever fight again?
|30 weeks 1 day ago||What is spring?||
If 93 degrees at 5 PM is spring to you then we are having one heck of a spring!
|31 weeks 6 hours ago||At his size....||
it is difficult to develop good technique this early. I'd imagine he has had some pretty good growth spurts and has gone through or is going through coordination issues due to it (can really impact ability to play low with power and athleticism). Also, when you are bigger than everyone else, you are not really forced to learn/use technique because you can outsize every one.
|31 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah....||
I'm a real idiot!

Feel free to judge as you see fit. You can justify your actions all you want...I know I am just as guilty as she is.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||The point wasn't that you||
The point wasn't that you spoke to someone like that. It was that, I am pretty sure, 99.9% of us have used words to hurt people we were upset with no matter how justified we think we are. She was out of line...but I am not going to act like there haven't been times when I lost control as well and would be embarrassed by my actions if I had to watch them on national news/gossip shows. Acting like she is the worst human being in the world is a stretch.
