3 that don't take a back seat to any in their class for only $5 total. Have to take Woodson - best defensive player ever for another $5 - leaving you to take any receiver. Hard to argue with Howard.
Henne, Wheatley, Howard, Woodson, Harbaugh
|6 days 5 hours ago||Undergrad Liberal Arts||
This list looks pretty right. Grad schools are very different. Hard for a public university to compete with a small liberal arts only school in the liberal arts, if you measure on parameters such as class size or percent of students that study abroad, and don't measure things like social life and performance in the Sears Cup.
Schools like Pomona are the real deal if you want a good liberal arts undergrad degree in a small school environment.
Ironically, I'll be visiting some of these SoCal campuses this week with my son looking at prospective schools. Spending less $ at UM would be an easy choice for most Michiganders but I'm trying to keep an open mind, especially when thinking about the last two winters...

Or bands thing will happen
|1 week 2 days ago||Then you would be on the bench||
Usually the red just wants to explain the call and makes sure there is no confusion as to whom is carded. A good ref will be very clear w/o shoving a card I the offenders face.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yes you could get an unsporting behavior YC||
For ignoring the ref. it is not a FIFA rule just a standard procedure that a player who gets a card come to the red and acknowledge his crime; )

A better team would have two goals by now
|1 week 2 days ago||Nice diagonal run||
Cuba Totally outclassed
|1 week 2 days ago||This isn't Cuba; it's the CUBs||
CUBs win! CUBs win! Holy Cow!
|1 week 2 days ago||Cuba has two starting midfielders absent||
Defection candidates? They were not a strong side to begin with - it's sort of a miracle they survived the first stage.
|1 week 2 days ago||Bed defending for Cuba||
We will take it
|1 week 2 days ago||Attendance is a joke||
How many do you think would show up in the Big House? I'd pay good money just to watch Dempsey warm up!

Hey Jude - Beatles
|1 week 3 days ago||Best of luck to him.||
On to the business side of things, we are too small on the D line. Ondre is neither big, fast, or healthy. Harbaugh clearly is looking at bigger players for the future.
Before the recent ugliness, Ondre was a class guy, and I'll chalk things to just the two sides agreeing to disagree. It's not a perfect science and telling someone their career is done or having to hear it can't be easy.
Hopefully he can mend, get back closer to home, get a degree and finish his career on a high note.
|1 week 4 days ago||Lefty didn't take advantage of the back 9||
still in the hunt , but he got off to a nice start and couldn't score on the back 9. He can wave to Tiger while he is playing Saturday and Tiger is flying home.
Did anyone birdie 17?
|1 week 5 days ago||Skyline has cut into all Pioneer sports||
But it's pretty impossible to compete with
|1 week 5 days ago||High School Swimming is first class also||
Pioneer, Huron, Skyline, Saline, Dexter, Chelsea HS all have been top 5 in their respective divisions. Many of the top HS kids swim at top D1 schools. Pioneer has an incoming freshman, the second on the roster, at UM which is an international swim program this fall. Very impressive.

see post 29/30. Big fan! My daughter (who learned electric guitar to play Supersonic) and I went to see Noel Gallagher at Royal Oak in June. He played a few classics. He is a cranky SOB but lovehis music. If Oasis ever got back together money is no object to see that gig!
|1 week 5 days ago||yes he was||
btw there is a good program on Dave Mustaine on Palladia that was interesting. Agree Hetfield now has jumped the shark.

once in a lifetime you luck out and hit an experience like this.
Mine was being in the Seattle Kingdome on a lark to see whatever Final 4 took place in 1989...

Just excellent! Wasting more time watching classic videos..
|1 week 5 days ago||This one?||
Another religious experience! Man I'm not going to get anything done at work...
|1 week 5 days ago||Very cool||
Surprised you remember anything based on that audience's partying. I've seen the movie on Paladia (my favorite channel) and John Belushi, err Joe Cocker stands out in a group of incredible performances.
|1 week 5 days ago||good point||
I wasn't a fan particularly either but by the end was just blown away. And 30 years later it's on my short list of car travel tunes!

|2 weeks 5 hours ago||Dempsey made the goal||
That diving poke pass was a thing of beauty. He kept many runs alive with precision touches that quite frankly any other American would have butchered. Agree that Bradley becomes a new player when he links up with Dempsey. I hope the heat was the other reason for the sluggish start...very frustrating.
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||Not on frame tho||
Seen that movie too many times. He is not a premier player and aging- we need to find someone else.
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||Dempseys touches are class||
Man of the match and game changer

He needs to think less and trust his ability
