right there with ya and it was, not surprisingly, first in the league.

More importantly, absolutely gutted for this kid. Hope he comes back and keeps lighting up the league. NFL needs more players like him.

Wow.  Amazing series, I think I've had chills reading every segment so far.  What I wouldn't give to have my teenager self at that game.  Unbelievable.

I can't speak for the All American (the new CFB work with Mandel) but I've subscribed for a while for the Leafs and Jays content and the coverage is top notch.  A broad mix of articles on the team and prospects covering basic news as well as more in-depth analytical articles, film breakdowns, and looks at prospects.  So far it seems like the Michigan coverage is ramping up still but there have been some interesting articles about the bball assistants.

Also, it seems like my subscription is covering everything so far, but not sure if I'll need a separate one for the All American.

Second this, just finished and I haven't laughed out loud from a book this much in a long time.

Also if you enjoyed Moneyball, I'd recommend "The Only Rule is it Has to Work." Fascinating and entertaining read about trying to incorporate analytics into minor league baseball. Also "where nobody knows your name" is a great read about life in the baseball minors.

Ok, I'm ready to play some football!

But seriously, you can see the difference in this team.  Think Hoke or RR's teams would have battled back to beat CU?  No chance, just no chance.  Think they would have hung in to trade blows with Wisconsin and ultimately win?  Highly doubtful.  Harbaugh's DNA is in the team and it is so awesome to watch.  We may not win every game but you know we're going to fight till the bitter end.

I think the money will be easier as it is just money and not a potential inconvenience for your future boss.

Also, from a cynical point of view (having been on both sides) the person you are negotiating with is likely really fucking busy, hates hiring, and just wants it to be over. This makes it very unlikely that they pull the offer and if all its going to take to hire you is $5,000 of someone else's money, I am guessing they'd push for that.

Also definitely mention the other offers. It makes you look good and that they could lose you. It also is a subtle reinforcement of your future boss's decision to offer you (i.e., other people see a lot in this person as well).

Agreed, I usually take my shoes off as well which helps.  Also you want to make sure your monitor is at the right height so you are not looking down at it.  Last, agreed with the other commenter who said it's important to move around still, and don't be afraid to go back and forth between sitting and standing.

It really has changed my work life.  I feel so much better at the end of the day - not groggy and tired like I used to.  It's easy to not stick with it, but if you make sure to do it for a couple of weeks it will become your routine and then it's easy.

 

EDIT: "are not" looking down at your monitor.

02/18/2016 - 7:42pm Not sure you're totally

Not sure you're totally accurate on the privacy issue there.  I believe the US Government has much broader snooping powers than most in Europe.  For example, I'm pretty sure that recent laws passed in France basically gave them a lot of the powers that the NSA has had for over a decade.  I haven't tried to find any articles to support these assertions so I could be wrong, but this is certainly my understanding...

02/17/2016 - 1:17pm Interesting to hear that

Interesting to hear that take. I've been to a couple of games there and thought the atmosphere was pretty cool but nothing to write home about. And I have been pretty underwhelmed by the college football fans in Denver generally and definitely Boulder. I'm interested to hear what the stadium and town are like when the team is good.

I was in Boulder the night in 2007(?) when they upset Oklahoma and no one seemed to care.

I've taken shits longer than DJ Durkin coached at Michigan.  Why are we so obsessed with him?

Durkin is not a secret agent sent to destroy Michigan football.  If he was, he would be a lot better as a DC.

I would be sad to see him go.  I was pretty pumped about him after the camp as he really seemed like a diamond in the rough.  Perhaps he is still in and we just don't know either way.

Or maybe he is the mysterious greyshirt Brian and Ace keep talking about.

I think we learned that he was one of those in the Swenson bucket who was told by the staff that he should look elsewhere.

Also, I find it a bit funny Durkin has suddenly become our bogeyman.  I know he has some good recruiters, but I can't see Maryland challenging us much for recruits.
