I hope this press conference is a wow experience for all of us.
|1 day 20 hours ago||You can actually do something||
You can actually do something very similar with a turkey as was done with the chicken here. Definitely spatchcock the turkey. You can do the compound butter thing (parsley, oregano, maybe sage, just pick some spices to put in the butter rather than using the bbq rub in it) as well, or just dry-brine the thing.
Read Kenji's stuff on Thanksgiving turkey at the Food Lab on Serious Eats. He experiments with multiple ways of doing things. Example: http://www.seriouseats.com/2012/11/the-food-lab-the-truth-about-brining-turkey-thanksgiving.html

These are not entries, as only one of them is me, and I don't live in town and can't get up there for this weekend.
I may or may not have run naked down the street in the student ghetto neighborhood. More than once. Not part of the naked mile.
Another friend was drunk and got the brilliant idea to take one of those traffic horse roadblock things. He then noticed a cop in the area, so he left. And then 10 minutes later came back to try to take the horse again. He did not notice the cop was still there. Whoops.
Two other friends were walking from one party to another with the good ol' red Solo cup full of beer. Cop stopped them and gave them a ticket for open container. Cop also told them that if they needed something between parties they should just smoke weed instead because the ticket was about $100 less.
Ah, Ann Arbor.

Pretty sure that was the general opinion going into last year's game and he damn near pulled it off, on a busted toe/foot no less.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Well, if the Regents are||
Well, if the Regents are inexplicably breaking down on party lines, he has his ammo.
Personally, our AD could be a lab-created supercyborg implanted with the combination of FDR and JFK for all I care, if Cyborg JFDRK fucked things up as badly as Brandon has, I'd want his half-robot ass fired.

Considering the way things have gone, we might be the first fanbase that would tweet "preach on, my man" at a decommit instead of the usual creepy angry fan thing
[DO NOT TWEET AT RECRUITS]

Monterey California is about as noteworthy as a flight going to North Bend Regional Airport in Oregon.
(It's rich people going to play golf, folks)
|4 days 20 hours ago||The one that interests me is||
The one that interests me is actually Purdue. I would not have expected them to be top 40. But all hail KenPom, so I'm guessing that I might need to revisit my expectation for Purdue.
|4 days 21 hours ago||Don't worry, once Wisconsin||
Don't worry, once Wisconsin starts their usual bumslayer ways, they'll move up again.
Really though, this will be the first year where no one is going to say "wait, why is Wisconsin so high" on his rankings, because everyone actually expects them to be that good.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Id have more respect for||
Id have more respect for Dantonio if he didnt justify adding a TD for b.s. "disrespect" but instead because "screw those guys, this is a rivalry" and had also gone for two. Bonus points if he would have referenced the "because we couldn't go for three"

Ohio State's best player, at least offensively, is going to be a freshman who wasn't eligible for this article.
|1 week 17 hours ago||It's supposed to be really||
It's supposed to be really nice outside tomorrow. I think I might just go sit on the roof at Gene's Sausage Shop and drink.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Well, the selfie that she||
Well, the selfie that she appeared to have taken of the two of them possibly naked and in bed is probably better evidence
|1 week 1 day ago||Purdue has actually figured||
Purdue has actually figured it out of late. The two weeks prior to the Minnesota game they had ground Illinois to a fine pulp, and then ran it for over 8 yards a carry against Michigan State when you excise sacks.

Someone can be a good person but still terrible at their job.
|1 week 2 days ago||Manageable, except triggers||
Manageable, except triggers such as "not getting remotely enough sleep" and "high levels of stress" are kind of endemic to the Michigan coaching job. If he's had trouble managing his condition at Minnesota, I don't really want to think about the result of him in the Michigan job.

The entire first three pages of the blog would just be Muppets. Over and over and over.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Er...||
We just won a deeper and more talented B1G last year by 3 games. It seems like Wisconsin is a pretty clear #1 in the league going into the season this time around, I wouldn't be totally shocked to see them do it too. Especially as they have one of the better home court advantages in the league.
One thing that might prevent it is Michigan's relatively favorable conference schedule. Our single plays (Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota in Ann Arbor, Maryland, Penn State, Indiana, Purdue on road) are seriously tilted to having the tougher games in Ann Arbor.

Iceland is 3-0 in their group including a 3-0 win over Turkey and a 2-0 win over the Netherlands.

When Kalis is actually healthy, lo and behold, he looks like the recruit he was reputed to be. Now if he can just stay healthy...
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah, that ended in the 2002||
Yeah, that ended in the 2002 season. We were told they could damage the artificial turf. At least I'm pretty sure that was the first year of the turf. I definitely know it wasn't 2001 because I remember the massive chunks of sod coming up that season, and seeing a crew of people out there replacing divots and such like at a polo match when the teams were on the other end of the field.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||For some reason I think of||
For some reason I think of Lloyd Carr as head coach and Bob Stitt as the offensive coordinator and it's basically the funniest thing ever. Stodgy, old-school, hates the media Lloyd with an open, fun-seeming guy who wears a Stitt Happens shirt? This would need to be a hidden camera show. Hell, bring in Schiano as DC and make it really ridiculous.
(Obviously this is not a serious suggestion)

Bernard Hopkins might be fighting him to a draw at worst though
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Tickets are $40 now (other||
Tickets are $40 now (other than the $20 for App State this year). Inflation would be a $26 ticket.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Michigan Football is a flat||
Michigan Football is a flat circle.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Count me as one who thinks||
Count me as one who thinks that a big boycott on Homecoming followed by everyone coming back for Senior Day drives home the point that the boycott is for how things are being run. Skip the day associated with the school, then everyone come back to cheer for Jake Ryan & company on their last home game.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||You need to convince John U||
You need to convince John U Bacon to run for regent with you, if that's allowed. 1) He probably shares your thoughts on all this, and 2) COOK BACON 2016 would be the greatest campaign sign of all time.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Rutgers is just as turnover||
Rutgers is just as turnover prone at QB and their good RB is done for the year, pretty reasonable shot to win that one
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Sometimes even allegedly||
Sometimes even allegedly waterproof isn't waterproof, as the US Ryder Cup team learned 4 years ago.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||If this is the case I||
If this is the case I wouldn't be surprised if Gardner isn't even in pads Saturday because he's hurt. Morris has been as much of a turnover machine when he's played as Gardner in the two losses has, but with less of a playmaking ability with the QB run.
