I worked at honey baked hams over the holidays "glazing" hams. I HIGHLY recommend the blow torch method. HIGHLY

12/17/2014 - 5:40pm NFL coach tampering rules

Just so people understand, after the the NFL season ends, other NFL teams cannot "tamper" with Harbaugh until after the 49ers season and their season ends. The can only talk to Harbaugh with permission of the 49ers. This rule includes approved NFL agents of coaches as well. So, it won't be free season on Jimmy once the NFL season ends.

05/27/2013 - 7:13pm This problem is not just student driven.

I have been a season ticket holder for well into double digit years.  I live in southeastern MI and have two friends who live out of state with tickets right by mine.  All toghether we have six seats.  We are all young professionals and have the money for the tickets, but we are starting to ask ourselves why we keep paying for season tickets each year.  With home game schedules that are very lackluster and family activities, why the hell am I dishing out a couple grand each year to attend two or three games?  I love the University, but at what point do I say what the hell am I getting in return for my PSLs and ticket prices?  I spent thousands of dollars in tuition for a nice piece of paper.  Don't get me wrong, it has opened up some doors that other pieces of paper wouldn't have.  But, its getting to the point where I can have a few friends and family over, not worry about having a few beverages, and watch the game on really nice TV.  I am happy with this.  My buddies come into town once or twice a year to go to games and we have a great time together, but they are starting to feel like I do.  Stubhub is becoming a more and more attractive option.  Please don't get mad at me for this post, because it is reality.

04/22/2013 - 7:53pm I thought all

of my experience at Michigan was more about drinking than anything.

04/22/2013 - 7:48pm The only way to fix it

is to make the student section smaller.  As a sixteen year season ticket holder, this will end up creating chaos at other gates besides the student section.

04/11/2013 - 10:12am I am an indepedent advisor and have many thoughts about this.

08/13/2012 - 8:11pm Was that

Bill and Ted's Soooo-crates, or someone different?

08/13/2012 - 7:52pm Whatever it was,

a shotgun was a nice choice but something larger would have been nice.

02/25/2012 - 10:17am Where?

It thought he was in EL today.

02/25/2012 - 10:08am If Krugler gets an

offer, he will commit on the spot.  He is going to have to bulk up for center at 6'2" 195.

02/25/2012 - 9:56am Make sure

he brings you a nice bottle of a 2001 Barolo.

02/25/2012 - 9:52am Patrick Krugler does exist

and he was in Ann Arbor yesterday.  He is in LS and A with a concentration in Econ finishing his 7th semester.  He works at Palio's on the weekends.  But I agree, he didn't get an offer.

02/22/2012 - 10:46pm The genesis of Pancheros in Ann Arbor...

Pancheros has been around the longest in A2 by far.  In the 90's, Pancheros made the burritos with meat, refried beans and the rest of the veggies(lettuce, tomato, and what not but no rice).  The El Gordo, a 2lb burrito but bigger at 2am, was a mainstay of the late night drunk crowd.  The Pancheros in East Lansing also produced the same food.  In the early 2000's, the Pancheros were bought out by a large holding company and turned into a chain.  Basically all of the Qboda, Chipotle, and what not are the same except for some spins on ingredients.  They are chain restaurants that you will find some are better than others. 

The El Gordo is a legendary burrito that the Fab Five, Charles Woodson, and other Michigan legends have been witnessed eating in the 90's.

I would like 6 hookers and and a pound of mary jane for Lou Holtz and I.

I am sure he will respond immediately

12/04/2011 - 2:17pm Coaching Staff

I don't think this coaching staff works that way.  All they want is a quality recruit and they like everyone of the OL they offered.  Like stated in posts before, it is a first come, first serve basis.   They are keeping their options open because recruiting can shake out weird on the last few days.

12/04/2011 - 10:45am I think I might stab myself in the.....

head with a spoon

12/03/2011 - 3:52pm A lot of this speculation

assumes a Sugar Bowl bid if we play in the BCS.   There is still a possibility of a Fiesta Bowl bid if we qualify for a BCS bowl.  It all is going to depend on how the rankings shake out and which match ups will be the most attrractive for at large BCS bids.  The Fiesta bowl people were at the Nebraska game and the Sugar bowl people never made it to a game.  I don't know if that means anything.

11/16/2011 - 4:03pm How I am going to guzzle

all the Busch Light I can without the extra 15 minutes?  It is stupendously ridiculous to make me shotgun that much more Busch Light faster.

11/16/2011 - 3:15pm Irresponsible OP

I was there.  I worked for Merck when Vioxx was launched. Vioxx was not a perfect medication but it did help some people.  Physicians are not infallible in the Vioxx case because they were presrcibing the medication to high risk individuals.  People that were not studied.

Frazier was not even around when the drug was being studiedand launched to the public.

I no longer work in that industry, but know a few things about the industry and I know that other similar dugs were yanked at the same for the same reasons.  The OP is ignorant in this case.  For the OP to relate to link the drug company circumstances and the CEO to the current situation at Penn State is absolutely ludicrous.


I know everything I read on the interweb is TRUE!!!

07/20/2011 - 10:15pm But he gets to look

at Heather Cox all day.  She is not Giselle level,  but I wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating crackers.

05/30/2011 - 10:44pm I can really make a degenerate comment with.....

YOUR MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

05/27/2011 - 7:46pm AWESOME...

Our defense can all drive 300's and our offense can drive Chargers while the coaches are giving recruits tattoos.

05/27/2011 - 8:11am He had to use Denard as an example for

all the reasons some on this board are upset.  Denard is a great role model at this point in his life, therefore if he used a Cam Newton, his point would have been muddled because Newton already has a terrible connotation associated with his name.  By using Denard, he gives an example of a fine upstanding man and football player and how fans and media go bonkers over a young man making a decision that could affect his entire life and creating a situation empowering an individual to affext something bigger than himself.  It is much more meaningful than talking about someone who has already been dogged to death by fans and media.

05/23/2011 - 3:36pm While technically you are correct,

I think the more appropriate acronym is "that Shit in Ohio"

05/21/2011 - 12:31pm This thread along with yesterday's Carr

thread are highly entertaining.  I think a group of 5 year olds could discuss the RR subject with more maturity.

05/17/2011 - 1:02pm I love this site!!

I get negged for being normal.  I am a season ticket holder and alumnus.  Because I post a realistic viewpoint, doesn't mean I am trolling. 

05/17/2011 - 12:50pm While the excitement over the class of 2012

is nice.  There is still a whole high school season yet to be played and a lot can happen in 9 months.  We can laud Hoke for his recruiting efforts to date, but things can change quickly. 

05/04/2011 - 2:06pm But the article says nothing about

assigning stars like kobe and lebron to the DL.  The DL will become a sham after the owners lockout the NBA players.  If you do not think this you are crazy because the NBA is not in a positive cash flow situation like the NFL.  So Darius is going to get drafted in round 2 and sit there doing nothing.  What a waste of talent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

05/04/2011 - 12:55pm Does anyone know

when the cba expires for the NBA?  Also, if the players are locked-out, how will assignment rights to the DL work?  I do not think people in his ear are educated on the disaster the NBA is going to be.  NFL x 100000000000!!!!!!

04/16/2011 - 6:24pm NHL and the Wings

Even though the Wings ARE the biggest draw for the NHL in terms of TV viewership and attendance, the NHL abuses them.  That is why Pavel is the most under appreciated guy in the NHL.  Also, if he was on any other team, he would get an average of 2 minutes more ice time per game.  His stats would go up.

04/16/2011 - 6:18pm Sorry

But you cannot currently be the best player if you haven't played in two+ months because of concussion.

04/15/2011 - 5:07pm Colonel Mustard,

In the Library, with the candlestick

03/14/2011 - 12:42pm CWebb is nothing.

Jalen Rose means way more to this program nowadays because Chris Webber is insignificant.  Rose is all over the networks(meaning ESPN and ABC), which means that his voice echoes more in the sports world.

03/14/2011 - 12:33pm I like DB...

and that is because how he helped people I know.   But why did it look like he was wearing some crazy ass lipstick?

03/09/2011 - 10:21pm He only wanted groups....

so Bruce, Tom Petty, Elvis and etc were not going to be included.  Also, Cowherd has some salient points once in a while.  Everyone has to realize that the people who do talkshows on the radio or TV have to be irrational, otherwise they do not get ratings.  Look at Rush, Glenn Beck, and even our very own Valenti and Foster.  If you sounded sane all the time, no one would pay attention.

03/08/2011 - 7:58pm I am sorry...

but size is not the measure of a man,  Otherwise, my wife wouldn't love me. 

My point is that recruiting is a numbers game and you don't know what sh*t will hit the wall.  It's a lot like the NFL draft.

03/08/2011 - 7:46pm Woodson

"I played against woodson in high school and he sucked!"

"I played against woodley in high school and he sucked!"

Relax it is early recruiting

03/05/2011 - 5:38pm He broke the "Honor Code"

Maybe he should be suspended.

Eff any talk like that.  It's college sports.  Trash is talked all the time.

02/28/2011 - 6:33pm wood

tends to warp in the weather and is high maintenance, aluminum is cold, and the new composite products are expensive

02/28/2011 - 6:24pm I hope Denard

is one of the best players in Washtenaw County

02/17/2011 - 10:52am and send him where?

There are only a handful of teams in the league that would be willing to take on his contract.  The Tigers would, for the most part, get some prospects and money for him.  Given what the bottom of the Tigers line up looks like, they need his production at the top.  He is not the first athlete to have a disease and deserves more help and more chances.  Hell, Donte Stallworth is still playing after killing another human and Charlie Sheen still hasn't entered rehab.  It remains to be seen in what shape or form this will affect the Tigers season.

02/17/2011 - 10:07am I wonder if

he drinks scotch?

02/17/2011 - 9:12am He had an open scotch bottle

and took a swig of it in front of the cop right on the side of the road.  He must have been destroyed to do that!

02/16/2011 - 7:07pm So it looks we have.....

to throw out a let of nets to catch big fish at this point.   Also, we are not necessarily looking for system guys anymore.  We are just looking for flat out talented football players.

02/15/2011 - 6:06pm The answers and solutions.....

are always found in the bottom of a bottle.
