"I love it that Ivy League coaches are coming to our camp and Big Ten coaches are coming to our camp. South Florida is coming. We've got about 70 schools that are coming to our camp."

Agreed! You want the kid to commit to you every single day by choice. Not because he made a decision while still in high school and can't get out of it. That's too often a hostile and counter productive environment.

I don't think MSU is at all worried about Wisconsin being on their schedule. It was an easy schedule though.

My great Uncle was competing for Michigan against Owens in at least one of those events. At the same time, my Grandfather, future Michigan track star, was winning the state championship in the 2 mile in Grand Rapids. My great grandpa was with one of his sons and my great grandma watched the other that day. Both sent telegrams to each other that said, "you will never believe what happened here!"

Wait, why shouldn't Big Ten baseball be played in Major League parks? I'm really interested to hear this.

Was he a Harlem Globetrotter at some point too? Or am I thinking of a different M player?

I will miss the show. Although I'm a much bigger fan of seasons 1-3 than I am the last couple. Here's hoping for a great ending.

There are former M football players who still chat weekly with their high school coaches on Facebook 3 decades after they have graduated. Certain coaches in Detroit are even bigger than father figures to these men. That doesn't mean it's a bad thing either. Some of these coaches really care and work really hard to be there for these guys and their families life long. That's probably more than can be said about Nick Saban.

I appreciate the info very much and I think it's cool that he represented his fraternity.

As a former NU pitcher under the current staff (mostly) I am disappointed to read that pitching line. We had games nowhere near that bad and got called unrepeatable names by the coaches. I wonder what they said after this game.

I do think felons need jobs and I don't think athletes are role models but I can guarantee you Frank would never be hired for anything by my firm. Even if he was as qualified for my industry as he is for football they would absolutely not hire him. I guess it's not a stretch for me to look at the Seahawks and wonder why they can't uphold the same stance.

It's nice to see BIG teams have winning records. It wasn't that long ago that the best teams in conference would be like 13-1 in the BIG and 23-24 overall because they just got murdered by other conferences. Fun to see a team on a 17 game win streak and at least 3 teams 10+ over .500

I liked the coach who I could trust to be right. I don't care how you deliver the message to me. If you are right about what needs to be done and how to do it then I'm all in. I haven't heard Beilein described as a jackhammer but the guy knows what he's talking about when his players are saying "give him enough time to prepare and he will beat anyone".

There is a bus leaving for Greenbow AL soon. Stop eating chocolate and get on it. Your son is waiting for you.

I once dated two blondes who worked the same Dairy Queen. Not at the same time but there was lots of free Blizzards in both relationships.

As a really young athlete I always liked Matt Christopher books. Lots of imagination in some and nearly all showed some real life challenges kids face in local youth sports.

That comment HAS to commit to me. It's the highest rated comment in this thread. No others will suffice.

What about using Hello: posts as purely positive/celebratory and use any other opportunity to question the coaches? There will be many board threads, mailbags, previews, etc where lots of questions are asked about the choices of the coaching staff.

Anyone on this thread have any actual experience with sex workers or in the sex work industry? I see some good questions being asked and people's hearts are in the right place about stopping pimps and trafficking, but our viewpoint most certainly comes up ignorant compared to actual career sex workers and what they know of how it works and what is effective against trafficking.

The real high performance bats were in the 1990s. I saw future MLB pitchers Mark Mulder and JJ Putz face each other and the game was 14-10 in the 5th inning. All these kids who would never play baseball beyond college were squaring up Mulder like he was a high schooler.
