It's never humid in CA. And wouldn't you like to pull out those golf clubs whenever you want? And don't you hate it when the day you picked to golf with your buddies is raining? That also doesn't happen here.

Agreed. I didn't mean for any of my lists to be exhaustive.
|2 days 15 hours ago||My point was that where you||
My point was that where you choose to live doesn't make you a crybaby. You seem to imply that if you value warmth at all, you are a crybaby. So why not move to Greenland?
|2 days 15 hours ago||You certainly were hating on||
You certainly were hating on people who leave Michigan because of the weather. You said we were "wusses" I believe. And in your post above you said I didn't "like to get snow in my vag."
I know CA isn't for everyone. It's perfect for my tastes. There are also a lot of reasons people don't like it, and I'm not going to judge them or call them names (like you have been doing) if they don't appreciate the same things I do or don't want to deal with the negatives. Some people say "I can't stand LA because I hate all the congestion." I get that. To me, the positives outweigh that stuff, just like to you, the positives of Michigan outweigh the inconvenience that snow brings (even if you love doing stuff in it, you can't deny that stuff like wet feet, sweeping/scraping off your car, etc aren't an inconvenience.
The point of my post above was not to debate MI vs CA (or anywhere else). It was simply that leaving one state for another doesn't make you a wuss and what makes someone depressed (for you, lack of seasons) could be seen as a positive for someone else. Have some fucking perspective.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Bullshit. Snow sucks. Sure,||
Bullshit. Snow sucks. Sure, there are some fun things you can do in the snow. But don't bring up skiing or snowboards because there is very little decent skiing in Michigan and even if you said the Boyne/Nubs type places qualify, I can get to better ski resorts from my house in LA in less time. So that's out.
Shoveling, driving in, walking in and all around dealing with the snow sucks a lot. Even people who love living in Michigan know that this is true. I love Michigan, and I would move back if the circumstances were right, but it would be in spite of the snow, not because of it.
You think the lack of seasons is depressing? You know what else is depressing? When your pants are wet up to the knee from the snow or your tires locking up at the wrong time and ending up in a ditch or smashed into the car in front of you (or worse). Or having your BBQ rained out or needing a completely different wardrobe for different parts of the year. You like swimming? You get to do it 4, maybe 5 months out of the year. When you're looking at dirty, brown snow, I'm looking at palm trees and 75 degrees. Poll the whole freaking world and ask which place is depressing.
Let it be known that I'm not hating on Michigan, I'm only hating on drjaws for insinuating that anyone who decides to move out of the snow does so because they are a wuss or a crybaby. I think you're a crybaby for not living in fucking Greenland, tough guy.
And for the record, California doesn't feel like a sauna year round, in fact most of it never feels like a sauna, it's just pleasant all the time. It gets hot where I live in the summer, but there's no humidity so our hot weeks are no worse than yours. And we have no mosquitos.

Water. AZ has very little, and between the Grand and Thornapple Rivers, Reeds Lake (and other nearby inland lakes) and Lake Michigan, there is lots of water to enjoy. My wife is a native Californian, and the first time I took her to Grand Haven she thought it was the ocean.
Also, tell her to research Forest Hills Public Schools. Regularly recognized as one of the best school systems in the country, and an overall great area to live.
|3 days 11 hours ago||I wasn't basing my comment||
I wasn't basing my comment simply on draft position, but I don't think we lack depth on the DL. At NT, Pipkins is 3rd string. Other DT/DE guys include Wormley, Henry, Godin and Taco who all have lots of PT and throw in Hurst, Poggi and MO who all have showed promise. That's not a bad amount of depth and (thankfully) doesn't include any frosh.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Also DL, boy. And I can't be||
Also DL, boy. And I can't be too worried about the LB corps because although we lost JMFR, we got Morgan back and both Gedeon and McCray sound ready. This D could (should?) be pretty damn good this year.

So I guess we're not super worried about our secondary.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Looks like a good sized kid||
Looks like a good sized kid who can tackle well and likes to hit. You can always find a way to use a kid like that. His film is actually pretty nice for a walk-on. Kinda surprised he didn't at least have MAC offers.

What if we lined up a TE to his side?

Magnuson would especially hate that.
|5 days 6 hours ago||Maybe, maybe not. But we||
Maybe, maybe not. But we still didn't beat them out for him. When we "won" him, we beat next to nobody, we were lucky his dad's alma mater didn't offer.

Harvard, Yale, Southern Illinois.
|5 days 7 hours ago||I fell into it like you. I||
I fell into it like you. I was in law school for a semester and change, and when I left the dean tried to convince me people did a lot of other things with a law degree other than becoming an attorney. Thing is, I could do all of those things without the law degree. I'm lucky I saw the light when I did.
|6 days 1 hour ago||No, he's right. I actually||
No, he's right. I actually hope we figure them out as well. Even our other issues - I hope we figure out at least some of those out too.
|6 days 1 hour ago||No one is bringing up his||
No one is bringing up his stars in this discussion but you.
|6 days 4 hours ago||Agreed. I like the idea of||
Agreed. I like the idea of finding ways to get as many people involved as possible.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Why not Glasgow? He's not||
Why not Glasgow? He's not exactly small and is reportedly extremely strong for his size. Pipkins has 20 pounds on him, but that's mostly bad weight. It's not like Glasgow would all of a sudden be better with 20 pounds of flub added to him.
I think all three can be good, but I don't think Ryan Glasgow should be ruled out. He has looked the best of those three so far anyway.
EDIT: Although the interesting thing is that with a Wormley-Glasgow-Henry DL, the NT would be the lightest of the three. That's just a huge DL.
|6 days 5 hours ago||It sounds like that is what||
It sounds like that is what the author is suggesting. Taco is kind of a tweener in a 3-4, not in the bad way, but in the good way where he could play either the stand up rush end linebacker (whatever they call it) or one of the DE spots. He's a little small for a 3-4 DE so I think I like him at the OLB spot better, and we don't have a star player at that spot this year.
Especially once Godin comes back, our 3-4 DEs are pretty solid.
|6 days 6 hours ago||Harris is still short of 180||
Harris is still short of 180 while having about 4 inches on Roundtree. I'm not sure that's a great comparison. And even Roundtree had to redshirt.

Better yet - why would you want to save mankind if we're not winning football games?

Zach Mettenberger? JaMarcus Russell? Matt Flynn? I know Russell didn't pan out in the NFL but he was a very good college QB.

This is the wrong choice. That is not up for debate.
|1 week 8 hours ago||Oh. I took you calling me a||
Oh. I took you calling me a troll and telling me to play in traffic as a negative. Silly me, right?
|1 week 8 hours ago||You think I was trolling just||
You think I was trolling just because I asked you where you got your info from? It differed from the info linked in the OP so I was only curious. Don't get so defensive, champ.
|1 week 11 hours ago||Grant Newsome could be a left||
Grant Newsome could be a left tackle as well. A little more raw, but will have a year of experience on both of those guys.
|1 week 15 hours ago||Where are you getting those||
Where are you getting those measurements from? His hudl page says 6'2" 215, but it's possible that just hasn't been updated.
Either way - I'm betting he ends up at FB/H-back. Good way to use walk-ons.
|1 week 1 day ago||Between all of your negs and||
Between all of your negs and how many people have articulated it above me, I will just tell you that your posts are bad and you should feel bad about them.

A lot of urologic surgery is minimally invasive, actually (no scalpel). The urinary tract already has a place to enter, after all. Although most people don't like the idea of things going up there, it's better than being cut open.
