Northwestern at home. Always.

Agreed, this single play is not reflective of the entire game AT ALL. I can't even say it's the best football hit I've ever laid witness to...and that's me trying to be as objective as possible.
And yet I've been subjected to the repeated torture of seeing it over and over and over and over, etc...though I did take a little satisfaction in seeing Vincent Smith pop up and stare down Clowney the last time I saw the replay which was...oh uh, this morning for the ESPYs! Ugh.

Solid film but it is a camp setting...hard to tell what a kid is truly made of when the helmets/pads are off. That being said, I'm not a fan of his throwing motion...he's more of a slinger with a sidearm release. It's quick and compact sure, but I feel he's going to have a lot of passes batted down despite his height, a la John Navarre.

Kid is ridiculous, has everything you'd want in a ball player. Obviously athletic, great handle so he can create his own shot, court vision you can't teach that lets him facilitate, heady defensive presence...man alive we very well could have the next coming of Lebron James if he keeps growing!

No need for an apology MMB 82...in fact, I apologize. I was trying really hard to advocate for my position without treading on anybody's toes. Perhaps I tried too hard, I'd hate to give into that stereotype myself (I work with a lot of good docs). ::handshake::
|2 years 11 weeks ago||I'm going to second the||
I'm going to second the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP) idea somebody mentioned earlier. Disclaimer: I'm slightly biased because I'm an RN. However, being "on the inside" both in school and at work has shown me the education/training of PNPs aligns much better with the usual needs in a primary care setting. Lord willing your child will only have the "typical" healthcare needs - vaccinations if you swing that way, common colds/illnesses...you know, nothing needing hospitalization - but even so, there are still a variety of issues and concerns parents bring to the table. Nurses and nurse practitioners are trained in a very holistic way, and accordingly are more inclined to take the time to address those concerns. There is also a growing amount of research showing the care given by NPs is just as effective as that given by MDs, and patients are just as - if not more - satisfied.
This is certainly not to belittle or disrespect the physicians that are my fellow MGoBloggers...I just feel that in general, the medical community trains to "diagnose and cure" problems, and the focus on the patient is sometimes lost. Hopefully, you're less likely to see this in pediatricians since they work with kids, but needless to say a practice where MDs and PNPs collaborate would offer you the best of both worlds, especially in case your needs become more complex.

Seems like a more athletic version of the big uglies Wisconsin regularly recruits to sustain their success in the running game year in and year out. Even if he doesn't start until he's an upperclassman, we need to keep this OL depth ball a-rollin'.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||This party is overbooked...||
So how many of these elite 4- and 5-star RBs crowding their backfield are going to end up finishing their careers at Alabama? I foresee at least one suspicious release for medical reasons and a transfer or two. With good young RBs already on campus (Yeldon, Hart, and Fowler), two elite backs committed for the 2013 class, and now Scarborough, there aren't going to be enough carries to go around!

I daresay ND is #1A on my hit list, with Ohio edging MSU out for #1B...I think it's ND's increasingly unbearable smugness despite their simultaneous increase in irrelevance on the national football stage.
And certainly, my dislike carries over from the football field to the ice hockey arena. GO BLUE!

You know, the stuff you see in commercials for movies! These are my current favorites, in rough order of priority by artist:
Mark Petrie - Richat, Virtuous
Chris Haigh - Ascend to Power, Epic Courage
Future World Music - Anthem of Courage, Gothic Messiah, Heart of Fury
Brand X Music - Bring the Pain, Extinction, Fearless, Heretic, Painkiller
Celldweller - Wings of Icarus
Two Steps from Hell - Heart of Courage, Protectors of the Earth

I had the honor of seeing an advanced screening the other night, thanks to my awesome girlfriend. I thought the movie was incredible. The acting was a little stiff, but hey, these guys are professional soldiers, not actors (and honestly, I've seen far worse acting in crappy action movies). This fact actually enhanced the action scenes because, my goodness, the way they move is second nature to them!
In any case, this movie gave me a new appreciation for the "Damn Few", their families, and the almost-incomprehensible sacrifice they all make for the greater good...OUR greater good. God bless them!
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Congratulations!||
As a future neonatal nurse (starting work in Philly March 5th, pending successful completion of my boards this Thursday), I love this baby stuff. It's a great way that, as part of the greater MGoCommunity, we can share our triumphs and joys together! I'm very happy to hear that everyone with new additions to their respective families are happy and healthy. :)
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Admittedly I'm disappointed,||
Admittedly I'm disappointed, though I'm certainly trying to not get too worked up about the college decision of a 17- or 18-year-old guy. He's going to Stanford, so I'm moving on, wishing him well, and hoping for the best with Diamond, Grant, Kozan, and Reeves.
That being said, with all this talk comparing the academics of these schools, I think it's about time we make some T-shirts saying "STANFORD: THE MICHIGAN OF THE WEST"!

I'm from Connecticut, but my dad is from a small town in southeast Michigan (Morenci, it has about 2000 people in it). He moved to New England for work, and I remember watching Michigan football games with him every Saturday...you know how little boys tend to copy their dads, especially when it comes to sports.
Even though I didn't became a die-hard fan until about 8th grade, my 5th-grade teacher knew UM was where I wanted to go to college, so I was indoctrinated at an early age. It was a reach/dream school for me, but I was blessed to be accepted and have a wonderful four years in AA...I'm long overdue for a visit, I haven't been back since I graduated in May 2010.
|3 years 21 weeks ago||Honey Badger don't care if||
Honey Badger don't care if he's invited to NYC...but seriously, I'd love to see it. He's Charles Woodson-esque in his ability to influence multiple facets of the game. If Mathieu doesn't get the nod this year, Miles should line him up in the slot next year...one could argue that Woodson's moonlighting on offense is what won him the Heisman.
It seems the consensus is RGIII...and I agree! This kid is unbelievable, an incredible dual-threat QB. He may not be as big of a running threat as Cam Newton, but he can more than get the job done (he's an Olympic-caliber hurdler, fergodsakes)! I forget which CFB analyst said last night that he throws the best deep ball in the country, but based on all the highlights he's produced this year, I'd say they're right. And leading the Baylor Bears - arguably one of the FBS teams with the least history of winning - to a 9-win year is the icing on the cake.
In terms of other finalists, Wiscy won the B1G championship, and Ball had what, 34 TDs? Unbelievable, put him in! Barkley is more than just Clausen 2.0 to me...not only is he a better QB, he's not a jerk either. However, because of the team element to the Heisman and with USC still on probation, he should wait until next year.
I don't know if five finalists is too many, but LaMichael James and Trent Richardson should round out the group. James had more big games on the big stage than Luck, and certainly has Heisman-worthy stats. Luck didn't win the Pac-12 either, and I think he fell off his pedestal by not coming through in clutch situations. And while 'Bama didn't win the SEC, that's less of a sin than not winning the Pac-12 in my book...and Richardson's TD total is nothing to sneeze at either, even if it doesn't match Ball.

Seriously, there are WAY too many stories similar to this one that surface...especially this football season it seems!
They also hit closer to home for me now. I'm a nursing student at UPenn, and a guy I had clinical with collapsed and died after running the Philly Half-Marathon today. Hit like a shockwave, literally and figuratively.
