"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

I hated the jumping jack too, at the time. But since we won, it made the jumping jack better,I think.

Weird, I like him more after all the union stuff.
My favorite non-Michigan coach? Al Borges. Specifically because he's not a Michigan coach.

Ugh my yacht will be docked in Monaco that week and I need to be in Geneva the morning after the last game to meet with my banker. For shame.

I would say Pacific, not Pacific Northwest. USC has a pretty damn good track team, and always has. Stanford as well. Really the whole Pac-12.

Good choice by FIFA to have the next World Cup in Russia. I'm sure people will be lining up for those tickets.

Y-L-G-U you're even ugly backwards too.

P-A-P-A he never loved you anyway. Yo papa, yeah yeah, yo papa.
|1 week 9 hours ago||He got a lot of those offers||
He got a lot of those offers early (including us) and many of those teams haven't really been recruiting him since.

Don't forget the most recent, Jeremy Jackson.
|1 week 13 hours ago||Maybe we don't like him as||
Maybe we don't like him as much as other recruits?
You can't take every kid from your big schools in fear that it costs you other kids. OSU doesn't offer every kid that comes out of their feeder schools. I doubt what school a kid goes to plays much of a role at all in how hard our coaches recruit them.
|1 week 13 hours ago||I don't get why this is a||
I don't get why this is a problem. You want to make a rule that says players can't play for their dad in college? What a dumb rule that would be. Or is the rule that a qualified HS coach cannot take a job at the college level if his kids are good at the sport he coaches? The things you're proposing are ludicrous.
And haven't assistant coaches been hired for their ability to recruit all the time? MSU just hired an asst FB coach with huge connections in Detroit. No one thought that was shady, everyone said that was smart. And his connections were to many talented players, not just his own kids.

I'm not sure if Black Socks was joking or not, but are you sure your termination was lawful? This is certainly something to evaluate. Meeting with an attorney won't cost you anything, and it might be able to get you your job back, or at least get you some $$$ to hold you over until you can find another job.

Dr Pepper. It has 23 flavors.

Drink, by the sounds of it. Great job, by the way.
When I was home for Christmas, I dropped about 300 bucks at the store there. Every CA relative owns something Founder's.

I haven't been to shorts, but people I know who have share your sentiment.

According to whom? I've seen him top 5, but never 1. Most feel that Okafor kid will go #1.

I was thinking Furbush too, but he came in as our slimmest LB so I'm starting to change my tune on that one.
|1 week 2 days ago||For sure. I wasn't really||
For sure. I wasn't really correcting you (and your point still stands) just clarifying, as much for my own curiosity than anything else.
|1 week 2 days ago||I like Perrin a whole lot as||
I like Perrin a whole lot as well. I've never had it outside of their brewery, but what I've had there is delicious.
|1 week 2 days ago||Well that's just not true.||
Well that's just not true. You might think that the best Founder's beer isn't as good as the best beer from another brewery, but the number if different good-or-better beers that Founder's offers is unparalleled by any of the other Michigan breweries. Founder's has such a variety. That said, there are certainly other very good ones, so this certainly isn't a knock on any of the ones you mentioned.

I completely agree with the first half of your post. But I don't think there will be a noticeable difference in talent in Europe compared to high-level NCAA basketball. Sure, they will be older for the most part (though not necessarily by a lot). But the overall talent level is about the same as the NCAA. The worst guys in Europe will be a little better, but the best won't be as good. For example, if Michigan played a pro team in Italy, it would be a good game.
|1 week 2 days ago||The All Day is certainly the||
The All Day is certainly the milder version of the IPA, though not a bad option if you're looking to drink for a bit (hence the name). I can't exactly sit through a football game drinking 7-8%ers and be able to stand up by the end, let alone drive.
That said, the Centennial is one of my favorites. For your standard IPA, it's damn good.

If my grocry store had a beer garden...holy shit. "Babe, I'm gonna run to the market and grab a gallon of milk." "But we have two in the fridge." "Can't be too safe. See you in 3 hours."
|1 week 2 days ago||It depends on their other||
It depends on their other needs and how many scholarship they have left to fill those. They already have a very good RB in this class and they took 2 RBs and a FB in 2014. That lends itself to both MSU not needing Weber and to Weber not being too psyched about MSU.
|1 week 2 days ago||At what, exactly, did he||
At what, exactly, did he fail? Unless you have evidence we don't have, all accounts show he was academically eligible. It sounds like this is simply a money issue, and as someone who has made career decisions for money, I don't see any problem with that.

Would have been cooler if he spurned Kentucky for Europe instead.
|1 week 2 days ago||Eh, I don't hate it, but||
Eh, I don't hate it, but those jokes are low hanging fruit at this point. Every topic about players and money has a "He should have gone to Alabama/Kentucky" joke in it.
|1 week 2 days ago||Sure, but since it was the||
Sure, but since it was the Rivals250 Underclassman Challenge, it's probably safe to assume that all of them were good. But yes, if there were 50 QBs there, but only 3 of them were 4-star caliber guys, then the quantity isn't all that important.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yes, it doesn't exactly||
Yes, it doesn't exactly follow, logically. If he is out #1 (and we aren't his) then it would be more of our loss.
However, I think I know what he meant. He should have added "but even" after the comma. He could also be implying that we are the only school that has him as their #1, so it would be his loss to choose a school where he might be option #2 or #3, for example.
