the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

At least grad school was in-state.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Surprising.||
As a vet, I understand this. The military tells you to either choose a state tax-free residence or as in the case of overseas, he changed his residence to not have to pay state taxes. A benefit for most. For instance, coming from Alabama, I had the right to choose Florida or Texas for my state of residence which has no state taxes. The down side, if I wanted to go to a school outside the state of Florida/Texas, I am now an out of state student. Luckily, I was warned about this before I changed my residence. (Un)fortunately, I chose Michigan so I was still an out-of-state student. Go blue. And suck up the huge student loans like the rest of us.
Plus, I'm pretty sure my military record help me get into UM in the first place. I mean, I came from Alabama after all.

I used to treat soldiers at Fort Benning. Nice jump school injury, their leg gets caught up in the cord. ACL, PCL, MCL, and med/lat meniscus. That was a sucky injury. Basically ended their careers.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Yum||
Dead people inside me........... not great to think about, but it's not adding more trauma to you. Why weaken yourself if you don't have to.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Yep||
The first few months of therapy suck. Great advice: if you don't do what your PT tells you and stretch consistently, they will do it for you. And it will hurt more. And take longer to get better.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||More||
So yes, once the swelling goes down, go for another eval. More imaging. Then go to PT before surgery. Pain shuts muscles down and you want to re-educate them prior to the surgery so it's not so hard to re-educate afterwards. Which type of surgery is probably up to your physician, I'm a fan of the HS or cadaver, but it's not my knee. For PT go to Dominos Farms. They specialize in sports medicine and not all PTs are the same. Seriously.
Not everyone needs surgery though. A lot of PTs don't get ACLs fixed but if you don't rehab will take longer and you will need to do a lot of stability work (for pretty much life) and there is a higher incidence of OA later in life (especially if the stability isn't there). If you want to be active, get it done. Regardless, listen to your therapist and finish your program.
And ice is nice too.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||WTF?||
|16 weeks 4 days ago||State College of Florida||
used to be Manatee Community College. They just added a few BS degrees. So the credits should transfer like any other junior college.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Actually||
it's probably the closest thing to being a college athlete. Entire schedule planned out with academic load just enough to get you into DI schools and emphasis on sports the rest of the day. Wake up, conditioning, classes, practice, study hall. Except the conditioning and coaches are way better than the average HS. Plus they have Manatee HS to compete with and they are always a top 50 (nationally) HS.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Twosie Shirt from the wife||
which may not seem that great. But I just received a grant for a tandem bike and indoor trainer for work (research in Parkinson's Disease) and I've been talking about buying the shirt so I can wear it during my indoor riding sessions. The best part is one of my patients that will be participating is an old MSU grad. He'll be riding in the back of course.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||Yes||
A combination of vestibular rehab, cardiovascular training, and dual tasking (cognitive training). At least this is where the research is currently demonstrating effectiveness.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Either A&M or Georgia||
UF is going to Sugar Bowl, Alabama to the BCS NC game. I'm excited, more if we play Georgia vs Johnny Football.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||NO||
Rutgers would be the better option. Not thinking either is necessary though.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||Would love it.||
Living in Gainesville, I would love this matchup..... again.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||Yep||
Today made me feel much better about the rest of this year and next. Bellomy at the helm next year was not too exciting after last week.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||Osi||
I knew Osi Umenyiora in HS, he started playing his junior year also. Only got into Troy b/c he knew D. Ward (Cowboys). Look at them now.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Wrong Guy.||
He's not wearing white gloves.
|36 weeks 5 days ago||Integrity checks can be painful||
Just throwing this out there but as Hoke suspended (and kicked off) players after altercations Urban brought back Stoneburner and Boren (after a mythical suspension) and allowed them to play. This demonstrated a strong amount of integrity for Hoke but it was extremely costly, and painful. I think this sets a strong standard that describes exactly what it means to be part of Michigan.
I know although many of us wanted Fitz and Clark to play, we knew this was the correct choice. I am just hoping not to see many more integrity checks, or preferably the need for integrity checks.
Once again, demonstrating the excellent choice in our coach. GO BLUE!
|37 weeks 1 day ago||5.5 hour drive||
to tailgate in Alabama with Bama in-laws.
|41 weeks 2 days ago||I hate pulling out.||
|41 weeks 5 days ago||More likely||
choice of FSU over Vandy. Granted, he would be one of the best players in the past decade to go to Vandy (initial rankings), but highly unlikely.
Gotta admit, his sideburns rock.
|41 weeks 5 days ago||From observations||
of the chef, I doubt the meat was too raw. I can see a nice medium rare, but not raw.
|44 weeks 4 days ago||Or.........||
Having to compete in an eternal race on an adult tricycle.
|45 weeks 11 hours ago||A bit sour||
I think a lot of us were sour that year as Henson was a preseason favorite for the Heisman, and we were one of the favorites for a national championship run. Three losses that year by a total of 7 points was a killer. Yes, he did leave for the Yankees for money which was his choice, but for the fans that year it was a killer to see him go with how well we could have done. And Navarre was not ready to be a leader that year, saved only by his supporting cast.
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Real Fast||
On my last Tri, I got smoked by a dude in a racing chair. Stupid fat slow legs.
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Out of State||
I applied from out of state but this was when the point system was in play. I (think I) received bonus points for being out of state since Alabama was considered an "under represented state" to say the least. Plus out of state tuition is way more so I think that would be a bonus also.
As far as what to do at this point. Per above, the essay. Just explain your goals and how you plan on being a scholar, a team member, and future leader. I had the military thing going on to help out, but my grades from HS were not what one would expect from a Michigan applicant. And show enthusiasm and how excited UM will be and how it will help you be a future leader (and best).
Good luck. And as always, GO BLUE!
|46 weeks 3 days ago||They are the worst||
Living in Gainesville (not by my choice), going to LSU is like visiting Columbus. You need to rent a car at the border in order to survive. LSU is considered the worst stadium, second to Ohio (the Horseshoe) and Florida (the Swamp).

Recruiter extraordinare, eh. Elite 11 MVP, ok. Photobombing tSIO group pic, priceless. Just when you think he's at the top of his game, he tops it again.
