I got a workout, that's for sure. Not exactly 3 yards and a cloud of dust from those two.
H-W was crazy uptempo. We asked him before the scrimmage if he wanted us to do a 25 play clock or not, and he said if his team ever took 25 seconds between plays he'd fire himself. Let's just say it was never close.

It's a west coast thing ;)

I'll have a beer with you, hell I'll even buy it. You have to come to LA though.

Right back atcha, Cali.
You would appreciate this: I worked (as an official) a scrimmage this week at your alma mater. You went to Harvard-Westlake, right? Anyway, nice facilities there, holy smokes. Their squad looks pretty good too.
But tonight I worked a scrimmage between Alemany and Hart (Brady White). That kid can sling it and his top receiver, Trent Irwin I think his name is, is legit. Alemany has a WR committed to USC, and although he didn't stand out as much, he's a very polite young man. His team has a lot of loud mouths, but he's not at all.

Agreed - in the Over he's fine. In the Under they'll sub in Taco/Poggi/Strobel (whichever of those is the better player) or move a guy like Wormley or Godin who has played SDE over.
Could you imagine a DL of Wormley/Godin - Pipkins - Henry - Clark? That's an average of like 290 - more than some offensive lines, and far more athletic. Roll that out on 3rd and short and say "Good luck MFers."

Of course it is, but not by a lot. If you went to get a beer and take a leak during halftime, it would take you the entire 20 minutes. No factor in the time you're going to take to drink that beer, since most people at sporting events aren't chugging the beers they buy. If when that one's done, to head back to the concession stand at the next timeout or quarter break or whatever, you're looking at close to an hour. No one will be drinking beers so fast that they're getting drunk unless they're just hanging out by the concession stand watching the TVs all game.

It would certainly make losses a lot easier to deal with.

And she had to deal with the death of that woman her uncle Ted killed. That had to be tough.

Sure, but he probably wanted to go to Michigan.
|18 hours 11 min ago||I agree, but I didn't say||
I agree, but I didn't say anything about Ford Field. The differences between those two crowds has everything to do with the people who go and little to do with the availability of alcohol. Dodgers game and Angels games both sell beer, yet one is wild and crazy and the other is tame as can be. That's the people, not the booze.
The poster above me said he wouldn't take his kids to Michigan games if they sold beer because he doesn't want them to see the drunks. Well, there are lots of drunks there. Selling beer will very unlikely change that number. The people who want to be drunk at Michigan games already are, and those who don't want to be, aren't going to buy beer just because it's there.

Seriously - and the amount of time involved in obtaining said beer would be enough for your body to metabolize that amount of alcohol.
|18 hours 17 min ago||I don't understand this||
I don't understand this concept of "enough money" you speak of. But seriously - what is "enough?"
|18 hours 23 min ago||Yes - you have to be a frat||
Yes - you have to be a frat boy to overdrink, this is science. No man who wasn't in a fraternity has ever drank too much, especially on a football Saturday. That's how you can point out those who didn't rush - they're all stone-cold sober.
|18 hours 28 min ago||There are so many out of||
There are so many out of control drunks at Michigan Stadium every Saturday, so your kids are seeing them. Like many have said, selling beers at the stadium may actually cut down on the out of control drunks because those people won't have to get slammered before kickoff.
|18 hours 30 min ago||I don't think they should||
I don't think they should shut it down, but I would be in favor of half-priced beers until 5 minutes before kick off. Get everyone in the stadium early to take advantage of 5 dollar beers.
|18 hours 32 min ago||Agreed, Wahoo. I hate how||
Agreed, Wahoo. I hate how everything that makes money is a "revenue grab" or "money grab" as if that's a bad thing. You know what? I bought a shirt from the MDen, and they charged me money for it. What a money grab this whole merchandise industry is!
I always wondered by beer sales in the stadium was a no-no. Tailgating with beer pong and jelly shots on the golf course and 3 story beer bongs are all accepted parts of University culture, but holy shit, don't sell light beer in the stadium or people might get drunk. Or worse yet - the athletic department might make money.
|18 hours 37 min ago||This is exactly right.||
This is exactly right.
|18 hours 39 min ago||I disagree. First, it would||
I disagree. First, it would likely all be light beer with relatively low ABV. Secondly, there would be a cut off point at some point, likely around the end of the 3rd quarter, so people aren't chugging beers right before they leave.
Thirdly - how quickly are you able to get from the stadium to your car and get moving anyway? It's not like having a beer at a bar where you can finish it and be on the road 2 minutes later. The time it takes to exit the stadium, walk to your car and wait for traffic to move enough, will allow for a lot of sobering up. Lastly - as adults you have the responsibility to not get shit-faced if you're driving home. Every pro stadium in the world sells beer and it's not like there are DUIs galore after all of those.
I actaully think a lot of the unruly behavior will decrease. Right now you have people getting wasted before the game so their buzz lasts throughout it. If those people knew they could buy beer in the stadium, they won't need to party so hard before hand and it might even things out a lot more.
|21 hours 21 min ago||But you're assuming you know||
But you're assuming you know more than the coaches do about our roster and about Nicholson. They stopped recruiting him for a reason, and it's not because they wanted MSU to have another quality prospect.
|21 hours 23 min ago||You know how words can have||
You know how words can have different meanings in different contexts? This is one of those situations. "Committed" to you wife means you don't do anything romatic with another woman. But in the context of recruiting, committed means that's the school you've currently chosen. It doesn't have to be bizarro world, it's just a different context. We're all smart enough to handle that.
I can be committed to my job, and still listen when a recruiter calls. I can be committed to my kids and still coach a little league team with other kids on it. Different contexts, different meanings.
|21 hours 34 min ago||Were the coaches told they||
Were the coaches told they needed to use an adjective? Because you can "describe" something by using a synonymous noun, right? And isn't developmental an adjective anyway?

Based on reports I've read/heard - I don't know if OSU is ahead of us on the OL, at least not by much.

But it's not like math and science are the only fields where research is done.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Oh give me a break. Lloyd||
Oh give me a break. Lloyd Carr coached against two incredible HCs at OSU, one of OSU's bet periods in their history, and nearly went .500 against them. Pretty close to what Bo did against Woody.

If our class fills up to the point we need to turn Wheatley away, that means we did really well and hit on a lot of top prospects. So as much as I'd hate losing out on Wheatley, in that instances it would be one of those really good problems.
|1 day 18 hours ago||I actually don't think you||
I actually don't think you can. If your last name was Robinson, you couldn't buy a #16 jersey with your name on the back a few years ago. From my understanding, at least.

But their recruiting would disagree. Tons of talent.

Not a ton of programs significantly bigger than Washington.
