Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

That would be hilarious but also shameless self promotion. But still awesome, I'd give it a pass.
I wish I could work out all summer and not have to go to work. I could finally get my abs back instead of shake my fist at those last 5 lbs...

Would the water be heated for the later games?

Go Michigan Wolverines Victors of the Big House in Ann Arbor, Just do it.

No need to prepare for things that'll never happen.

That while development scheme and coherency may rise and improve the team, a single spring+fall camp doesn't turn Northwestern into Wisconsin.

"With three yards or less to go, UM logged a first down or TD on 66.7 percent of carries (No. 44 in the FBS)."
I guess that's decent top third but.... we were behind the chains to many times last two years, it almost sounds like, "When raining for days you're incredibly unlikely to die of thirst".

Having the wrong number of men on the field is a common issue in SE michigan lately. It is a disease that needs a federal research grant to discover more about it before it spreads further.
I blame neither Hoke Nor Babcock for these occurances, clearly it's science.

What if the movie was about hitler and glorifying the holocaust in parady fashion?

There are various different personality types. Depending on which test you take they're called different things, however a main theme is what "charges our batteries" and introvert and extroverts,
Introverts tend to recharge via alone time.
Versus extroverts recharging via, well talking with and interacting with people.
I fully expect to see this face if someone says something incredibly stupid though.

I don't care about baseball in general but will root for any U of M sport and like hearing the updates.
So Thank You. +1

This may not be fair to the Gallon's, Edelman's and Dileo's of the world, but I suppose they usually have a sick vertical.

Do you mean they're forced to be traded to the Lions?
The browns would be a worse punishment.

By trees that'll be more enthusiastic. Those trees didn't fully embrace #EUTM.
They just sort of swayed in the wind, had horrible attitude.

Oakland is in play!
Until we destroy them at 6:30 that is.

Around here it's Saint Louis Bread Co. I still call it Panera though. Not sure if adding an "s" is a Michigan thing, I've seen that happen all over the place.
|1 week 1 day ago||I agree however||
Sometimes exercise can burn off nervous energy and vitamin deficiencies can cause a myriad of neurological conditions including depression. Taking care of yourself sleep/exercise/eating well can improve most ailments.
I do agree it is a serious issue and most of the severe cases it'll only be a drop in the bucket if anything towards happy and healthy.

I hope we don't actually have anyone that misinformed and ignorant on the blog. ;)

And it was awesome to watch. :)
They didn't do very well but they were putting forth the most effort, literally to move their mass.

I also figured he was into Shotput/Discus but think it'd be absolutely awesome to have a line composed of ex hurdlers, the agility/athleticism and speed required to compete for/at that size has got to be a plus.
|1 week 2 days ago||Awesome, always undervalued position||
Played left mostly(can barely remember) but was freshman year. Let no one score but the coach was equal opportunity and we weren't a deep team. Would often watch the guy I marked get a cheap goal right as I was taken off to spread some PT around.
|1 week 2 days ago||2 Minute hat trick||
Scored 3 goals in the first 2 minutes of a soccer game. Possibly 3 minutes(around 2:46?).
Opening kickoff, one pass then charged forward stole their kickoff twice.
I had a brand new pair of Adidas cleats too. The ones with the ridges versus the circular cleats, they were red white and black.
Very similar to this:
Also enjoyed when a kid kicked my knee trying to take me out and broke his foot. Other team was so pissed they tried to take me out and got 2 yellows and a red after that.

When will people stop driving drunk. He can easily afford a taxi.....
Also other things should be legal(but you can drive like an idiot on them too).

|2 weeks 2 days ago||Hey now||
You borrowed 25c, can I get my Quarterback?
Eh, leading rushers doesn't mean RB, but if he was listed in RB and QB records I'd be okay with it. He sort of split time at RB/QB depending on the season and he's playing RB in NFL.
Just like I'd be okay with the Devin's being listed under multiple positions. I think listing funchess for TE receiving records may be entirely misleading/unfair to other TE's though.
I hope this was an intelligently made decision, and not some non UM idiot reading him as a player on Jags roster who is listed as RB and assuming things.

Maybe don't part in front of a bar? I imagine a lot of students will be clearing out though.
I always either stayed a week and partied, or had my car packed and was out of town an hour after my last exam.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I'm fine with it||
As long as minor teams with minimal fan bases aren't stuck shelling out money because they cannot reach their minimal ticket sales numbers and/or for team travel if the bowl doesn't provide enough money to get there.
Bowl games should not cost the schools, what do they think this is the CBI?
Hell I'd be tempted to turn it down if the school was going to lose money. Unless you're that team that never goes to a bowl, then hey once in a lifetime chance for your players and recruiting bonus/exposure to scouts/national light.

He said working professional and I have a hard time believing either of those apply.
Also tipsy... I think it would require a lot of alchohol for that BMI.

Awesome writeup. Plus TFL's against OSU make us all very happy.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Was soccer or going to UM until I got injured a bunch||
Then I completely stopped caring/trying and just started working a ton and figured I'd go the WCC-->UM route so I didn't apply to colleges until the spring of my senior year. Then my parents wouldn't let me go to Community College so I went to a private engineering school on scholarship since I applied to UM too late.
I took honors/AP classes until I noticed some of them were the same content except with 3x the homework and more complicated equations but same forumlas(AP/honors Physics/Calc/Chemistry vs regular) and I hated getting home from work at 12-1am and doing hw until 5am. I realize a lot of the people on here pay for their children's college, good for you, however if you won't be explain the importance of AP classes and how much money they can save. I saved a ton and got to graduate a semester early. Also if they're the type of student skating through school they'll get use to reading the book and studying, as well as heavy loads of homework. I just read my books cover to cover once or twice and slept in class.
I agree with others, would never ask for help even in Elementary school, I always thought my homework meant that I should do it. Other kids who parents helped(did their hw), angered me, I'd rather do my own work and do it poorly than be judged upon someone elses. I guess helping is different that doing, but I felt a ton of parents just wanted their kids to get good grades and didn't care if they learned. Either to help or brag about them, I'm not entirely sure. I refused to ever tell my parents I had hw because I didn't want them to look at it or criticize how I did it.
Need to get the kid to motivate themselves and see the importance if possible. You can keep on them and should if they won't do it otherwise but really best if you can get them to do it themselves.

These are Spring weights, isn't the rule, all spring weight gain is good weight?
I feel sorry for his heart and joints, hope a college nutrition and weight program provide him a turn for the best.
