That's not the only nice scenery L.A. has that's (im)planted and/or unnatural.

That would be awesome indeed. Imagine if he and Brock Mealer both were honored on the same day. The stadium would literally be flooded out.

Could this be considered a "pretty solid hype video"? I don't even know anymore.

Eddie Rabbitt, actually. I'm not gonna lie; I always liked me some Eddie Rabbitt.

He didn't even turn green and beat the shit out of anyone. WTF?
|3 days 12 hours ago||I'm way less likely to freak||
I'm way less likely to freak out given that Ty Isaac will make his debut next season - as a large, fast, powerful man three years removed from high school.
However, I'm still freaking out.

You missed a comma in your post. An otherwise good post got totally ruined by the lack of that one little punctuation mark. Sorry man, but I just can't let it go.
|6 days 23 hours ago||Many of those mentioned, plus||
Many of those mentioned, plus I'd add Frank Solich. Partly it's sympathy after getting railroaded (IMO) at Nebraska, but also because he's always come across to me as calm, cool-headed, and classy. I don't recall reading or hearing anything even close to shady about him. On top of that, he fields a good, winning team almost yearly.

Probably because 8th graders are still just naive enough to not recognize Kiffin for the slimy douche that he is. However, HS freshmen can see right through his bullshit.

Swagers often do rub people the wrong way. I think the main reason is that they're not really designed for use on people.

After seeing Harris rocking the Michigan hat, he knows he doesn't really have to. Obviously.

Lewis, Gedeon. They've shown very good flashes of their potential in live action. I'm really excited about these two guys.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||But once the next Ty Wheatley||
But once the next Ty Wheatley commits, he will then become the current Ty Wheatley. So we will still need to seek the next Ty Wheatley after that.

Suddenly, I find soccer way more awesome than I did just two minutes ago.

Used to, right off exit 370, but that's closed now. Rudyard suburb, known as Kincheloe, has a Clyde's now. It's right by the prisons and Chippewa Co. airport.

Offers from basically the entire eastern seaboard and much of the Midwest, and he's over 6 feet tall? Do want.

Much of the nation (including me) is way ahead of you on that one. I find ESPN to be quite intolerable anymore.

I'll take a stab at pronouncing the Georgia kid's name: "I'm a tore bay bay"

So Funchess is really Drew Dileo?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Seems as if you and the guy||
Seems as if you and the guy above who replied directly to me mistook my post as "piling on" Al Borges, or perhaps being argumentative. Neither one was my intent. I merely stated a fact that some seemed to be overlooking - the fact that UM couldn't run the ball. I didn't place blame, did I?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Some (all) of those former||
Some (all) of those former teams were able to run the ball for positive yardage, too. Just a thought.

Awesome, and thank you. There were actually paragraphs that didn't format over, but your version is more than excellent.

Crap, formatting fail on iPhone! I'll see if I can fix it.

Hell, people in Connecticut are starting to believe Hoke. Jerseys may start selling like hot cakes.

|5 weeks 6 days ago||I like the idea of the||
I like the idea of the legends patch and activating those numbers to be worn again. But deciding when and to whom said number will be assigned is confusing a bit, at least to me. So far it's been mostly based on merit, from what I can tell (Kovacs, JMFR, etc). I'd assume the player could refuse it, but it seems a pretty nice honor, and a cool opportunity to get to know famous alums or their families (at UNC it'd probably be worth 3-4 credits). Hard to think any 20-ish year old kid would refuse it.
However, does it ever become a point of contention among players? Or do they even really care? I'd be curious to know what criteria the staff sets forth in offering a number to a given player. Until these things are known, it's hard for me to criticize too much.
However, I do agree with those who like one guy to have one number his whole time at UM. I mean, that in itself is enough to spark those great memories for me. For example, some anonymous 4th string walk-on who's only visible on the sideline could be wearing #20, and I'll flash back to Mike Hart breaking tackles and dragging guys along for a ride on his way to another 200 yard game. Or I'll see Ian Gold flying in on a blitz or running sideline to sideline pursuing RB's. The list of numbers I can do that with is a long one. I don't need any patch for that.
Hey, maybe that'd be a fun, positive thread regarding numbers. Which player to you associate with a given number and what do you recall most?
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Totally agree. I mean, how||
Totally agree. I mean, how long will it be until other programs come after him with more money or a fancier title?
Side note: how many Taylors can we fit in one secondary?

All you need to do is say you're celebrating your 21st birthday (for the 19th time). Then go do it. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy of sorts.
PS- Good luck convincing your own body of this line of bullshit. It knows better.
