wait for it.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||The Once and Future King by T. H. White||
A truly great read.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||This is a good point...Witherspoon had previous contact with||
Rutgers which helped. Witherspoon took an online class that didn't pass muster not to mention he was a LC recruit into a RR system. Andersen probably started this recruitment as well for Wisconsin...there is some ability for coaches to work with admissions as long as all i's are dotted and t's crossed (which is hard to do in a coaching change - though this CC was all about this very issue.)
|5 weeks 1 hour ago||This comes down to how transparent Wisconsin has been...||
If they laid it on the line then Stevenson could arrange a backup plan. If they are coming from out of the blue then this is crazy.
Clearly Wisconsin is doing admission differently from others. We haven't had a late fail like this in my memory. Demar Dorsey happened fairly quickly as i recall. Granted the issues were much more black and white for Dorsey.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Suttons Bay - old system still||
2 minute wait for boat tags. When this system hits small towns...singularity is nye.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||On the Lake in Leelanau...||
measuring 64 degrees in the water outside the cottage... the best AC on the planet. Coming from the NW where it's been crazy/historically hot this is the life. Michigan is where it's at.
As soon as I post this... the rain starts...it's hard being a Michigan fan.
|6 weeks 1 hour ago||Agree on disagree - but CTE <> Concussion||
A lack of correlation is a correlation as well...I suppose. I agree if you plot CTE vs. Concussion/TBI you will get a number that suggestive of correlation. If you plot CTE vs. TBI severity or occurence you probably get a number that is less suggestive but still pretty high.. That is coincidence however. Subconcussive blows are a precursor of CTE as well. It's not clear why it develops in some cases and not others. If we take concussions out of the game we are still going to have CTE.
SF Wolverine equates concussion and CTE. That is what I was responding to before stepping into the correlation/causation morass. To address the morass is to define concussion - which in the study of CTE at least is problematic.
|6 weeks 5 hours ago||Many people are wrong||
Evidence for past concussion is a problem for any researcher. Coincident yes, often coincident again yes, correlate no. Sub concussive blows are needed precursors as CTE exists in cases without concussion. To equate the two is wrong.
|6 weeks 9 hours ago||Concussion <> CTE||
They do not even correlate.

MeanJoe is making do w/o thumbs and dexterity.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||No||
Not if the full medical record is shared. Too much liability.
It's odd that Pipkins thinks this is a scholarship issue, but Harbaugh is not going to waste a scholarship (ie a walk on would use it.) This is clearly a serious medical issue (probably concussion related) and Pipkins is not aware of the risk. The fact that he feels fine is not relevant.

Great place for a fourth of July pre/post Pictured Rocks.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Nice site and writeup...||
I will add this to my feed... thanks
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Um... we've done that before... that is where the Zoo got them||
to begin with...
But point taken... Mich could do it if they wanted.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I say Michigan donates to http://refugeassociation.org...||
in the amount it would take to house and maintain a Wolverine in A^2 and calls it good.
This would probably cost tens of thousands of dollars and have less chance of a negative publicity experience (Wolverines are extremely exotic pets and the care would not only be $$$ - but it could go south at anytime creating a publicity fiasco.)
|11 weeks 37 min ago||This guy looks great... esp. like blocking at 3:25||
If he picks up weight and technique - it's all good.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Yes... Fuck Cancer...||
Sorry for your loss. 25 years is an inspiration. Thanks for sharing this.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||This is interesting only as a negative portent on Mack...||
|11 weeks 5 days ago||This is where the gold is found in these camps...||
the south is a deep and football crazy place. I hope the fundamentals stick here and this turns into something. I can't believe the coaches had time to review transcripts on such a whirlwind tour for untouted recruits.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Mystery recruit...|
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Coach seems a bit awkward here...||
There is more to sell and Harbaugh has no excuses to make but he seems to be throwing from his back foot here.
Wins and a lot of work make this go away. Good to see him out making contact.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||He's going for the ball||
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Muggle||
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Phone #s and email are changable/filterable/blockable...||
making a human connection with a possible recruit or advocate is worth taking chances. JH takes chances.
I think he's underestimating trolls. Unfortunately Jim doesn't have the Secret Service to investigate threatening communications like the POTUS does.
All that said... I applaud this move. I question it's longevity given the constraints of time... but dang...there is nothing humanly and legally possible that JH will not do to win.
I will not call or email until Michigan wins the National Championship. Until then he has my silent stamp of approval as HC of Michigan Football.
What is he going to do next week? Hopefully spend QT with his family. He never quits.
|14 weeks 3 hours ago||Looking forward to the MSU game...||
The play calling is going to be fun to watch.
I would like to be a fly on the wall in the video room breaking down these spring games. These posts make that happen if only for a few minutes. Personnel get moved around in the spring games but the nuts and bolts of fall offense are installed and reinforced here. This is a savvy way to pick out trends.
Great write up.

|14 weeks 6 days ago||She is living a good life...tribulation is treasure...||
enjoy every minute with her with the respect, honor and good humor she deserves. Some of my deepest joy and most profound moments have come in the final hours of loved ones who have knowingly suffered before their time. Best to you sadeto, to her and her family.

How about Gussie...that ought to do it.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Stop watching the show and read the books...||
I thought it was worth every page. I basically stopped all other reading to plow through the series. I don't regret a minute...time well spent.
