I'm not a fan of Harbaugh's comment either, but it's not really that big of a deal that the AD needs to get involved. This was just an off-the-cuff response to a question intended to put him on the spot. And hasn't it already been reported that Manuel has spoken to Harbaugh about some of his tweets? I do think that was appropriate--not to censor--but to point out that not every perceived attack requires a response.

Even if I had pics from just before the combustion, I don't think anyone would want to see them. It was no longer svelte and willowy like it once was--more gnarled and whiskery with a foul temper.

Agreed. And I can't wait to see him play in this upcoming season.

It's so hot that when I let my wife's pussy out in the yard, it spontaneously combusted.

My condolences. We spent one Christmas south of Houston in Lake Jackson, TX with my wife's aunt and uncle. It was uncomfortable then, upper 70s with 85% humidity. At that time of year, it wasn't the heat so much as the humidity. I can only imagine what it would be like in the summer time.

Do any schools do this for every incoming player?

They called 911 just after 5 pm. It was somewhere around 100 degrees and 50% humidity in Stillwater yesterday about that time. I think it hit 102 degrees today. It was probably even hotter in the football stadium where the basketball team was running stairs. Maybe I'm just a wuss, but I now live in central Oklahoma, and when the weather gets like this I try to spend as little time as possible with as little exertion as possible. Granted, it doesn't sound like he died of heat stroke, but why in the world are they doing this at 4 pm instead of 8 or 9 am?

There is no way Oklahoma will be accepted into the Big Ten until it's research dollars and academic reputation rises significantly. We fans tend to look at this through a football reputation lens, but that is only part of the equation that the conference looks at.

Great stuff. I especially like stories of people overcoming obstacles, and it sounds like Reinhold had more than his share, especially with that gruesome leg break.
And I can only imagine how he must have felt during that film session. Bo did go for the hyperbole at times, but those times often touch on the team concept as well, and I'm sure that made it sting all the more: Mark's blown assignment didn't just reflect on him, but others, including the coaches. It's one thing to know you screwed up; it makes it even worse when others get blamed when you know the mistake is all your own.

Back to school sales and school supply lists. Sweet corn ripening, and wild blueberry picking up north.

No, no, no. Nike has a patent on the color and only they can use it. Michigan got screwed over on the deal and now can't even use that color unless it's on Nike gear. Also, btw, we can't call it maize anymore. Our school colors are now amarillo and blue. Nike sucks!

I have a ways to go yet, but by the time somebody comes up with My 600 Pound Hoarder Life, I might just be ready to audition.

One thing I will give Penn State credit for is there was a level of transparency, at least after the fact. With the public release of the Freeh report, O'Brien didn't need to say anything, and he was starting with a new staff.
At Baylor, nobody except the Board of Regents (and of course the people who put together the Pepper Hamilton Report) know specifics on the multitude of wrong doings. Since even in the the vague printed summary that was released football coaches or coaching staff are mentioned, Grobe does owe an explanation as to how he has vetted his staff and whether the Board of Regents gave him full details about every member of his staff. Grobe has shown no reason to believe he knows any more about what went on with the football team and staff in the past as far as covering up rapes and sexual assaults than you or I, or anyone else. And since he is retaining that staff he does owe an explanation. He can't just say with any credibility that it's a new day and he's only focusing on the present and future.
|3 days 20 hours ago||The problem is, there is not||
The problem is, there is not a single person at Baylor who has both the credibility and the knowledge of what went on to make any believable statement. Sure there are people who know a piece of the story, but they're not talking. Neither Grobe, nor the new AD, nor the new president knows anything other than what the BOR told them (and the purposely vague print summary of the Pepper Hamilton report that was released). The only ones at Baylor who know details from the report are the Board of Regents, and their behavior, their lack of transparency, their doubletalk, their incompetence makes them one of the least credible parts of the whole university (which is saying something). Grobe is clueless and is in no position to determine whether the university has acted strongly enough or not. He's playing the role of useful idiot for Baylor University.

My youngest daughter is into it, the two older children not so much. She even was on tv for about 15 seconds on a local tv station when they did a news story on Pokemon Go. I was impressed that they referred to her as a Pokemon Trainer, until I asked her and she explained what that means.

|1 week 1 day ago||For the few times I could||
For the few times I could have easily died, I was too drunk or ignorant to realize the danger at the time. One was canoeing with a friend. Our goal was to canoe the Flint river from Flushing to Lake Huron. We weren't sure how long it would take--we thought about 3 days. This was June of 1980--the only reason I remember is because we took a cooler with food left over from my little sister's high school open house. We started out late in the afternoon and camped out on a small island just north of either mt. Morris or Vienna Rd. It had rained heavily, so the river was flowing well and deep enough for no problems. The next morning we headed out. We came to a fork in the river, and had to guess which way to go. Eventually we came to the Shiawassee wetlands or whatever it's called, and here we were really pretty clueless. We knew which general direction we needed to go, but where we were was more like swamps and small lakes than a river, so we just tried our best to follow the flow of water. We were in this for hours. We saw all manner of birds, including bald eagles, and I swear vultures...having watched plenty of Westerns, the vultures kind of freaked us out, and we imagined drifting, lost for days on end. We eventually made it to what was obviously the Saginaw river, and stopped at a park in Saginaw by late afternoon / early evening. We bought more beer, and headed down the river. By this point it was dark and we were near the foundry, where the river is more like a channel, and a big grain, ore, or something ship was coming up river. We debated whether to get to shore or try to weather the wake. At the last minute, we decided to pull to shore. Had we not, the wake would have most certainly sunk us, and fully clothed and drunk, I'm not sure we would have made it
We kept going until we were about a mile past I-75 and camped out for the night. The next morning, we headed out. We discovered the wind was so strong that no matter how hard we paddled, the best we could do was stay stationary. At this point, my buddy's shoulder was giving out, so we decided to go up-river. I sat in the back and just steered and we headed up river at a really fast clip, no paddling required. I remember going under one of the bridges with an operator to open for ships coming through. I could see his face clear as day, and just the shock (and I presumed awe) for him to see two idiots out in water that choppy in a canoe. We made it back to the park we had started at before, called for our ride from a pay phone, and made our way back home. That day with the wind was probably the most dangerous, if we were to get crosswise or hit one waves wrong, we could have easily overturned. At least we were mostly sober at this point.

My wife and I fairly early in our marriage agreed we couldn't shop together. Her expectations of my role were something I just could not fulfill (to be constantly by her side in case she wanted my opinion on something-as though she were the only one shopping and I her assistant).

|1 week 3 days ago||When our children were young,||
When our children were young, my wife was hosting a conference and we had a some out-of-state professors over for dinner. One older guest, trying to engage the children, asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up. When the older two had answered (I have no memory of what they said), he asked the youngest, about 4 at the time, and I could tell she was working to come up with something. Finally she announced that she wanted to be a whore, much to the shock of everyone at the table, until I realized what had happened. I had been doing some gardening and had bought a set of kids' garden tools, and allowed each child to pick one. The oldest picked the shovel, the 2nd picked the rake, and the youngest got stuck with the hoe, so she said she wanted to be a hoer when she grew up.
