01/17/2018 - 9:26am Starting Strength

I read Starting Strength a while back by Mark Rippetoe. Got a Valor Fitness BD-33 power rack and some bumper plates from Vulcan Fitness. Started the SS program the first of the year. 

I decided last June that I finally needed to do something about being overweight instead of just saying "I need to do something". I lost 30 pounds by the end of the year just by using My Fitness Pal to track what I eat (going from 205 to 175, and I'm 5'8"). Looking forward to more progress this year with SS. My wife also got me the book Practical Programming for Strength Training so I am reading it now. I highly recommend both books for anyone looking to get into strength training.

Most programs use at least a portion of the money made from camps to pay 'volunteer' asst coaches.

07/13/2017 - 1:34pm video

If you are going to make a video to send, make sure a radar gun is in the video when he is throwing so they know he is throwing what he claims he's throwing. If he is playing travel chances are you know someone with a pocket radar.

Good luck

Kudos for the guy wielding the bat to post baseball content. I hope you continue to do so. You really hit this one out of the park. lol

11/21/2016 - 9:39am Hits on JT

UM has knocked several QB's out of games this year. I think it will come down to how often we can get to JT. I'm hoping Chris Evans can create some big plays also.

Looking for living room furniture. Hopefully will be able to catch some games while relaxing on someone else's couch.

I live in VA and have DirecTV. I have the package that includes the BTN. You won't miss a football game. Most basketball games are televised one way or another. I don't pay extra for the BTN streaming stuff.

I thought it was odd that they didn't kick the field goal at that time.

I'm near Roanoke. I'm ok with a foot or so, and the kids are definitely looking forward to it. I hope we don't get much more than that.

01/15/2016 - 4:55pm Best of luck. I was excited

Best of luck. I was excited like everyone else when he committed. I met a coach from the Richmond area soon after and he said Green was extremely overrated and 'soft'. I wanted so bad for home to be wrong. He showed flashes but it didn't work out.

Sucks for him that he had to try to run behind some of the offensive lines that he did. With that in mind, maybe Florida isn't the best choice.

I was with the crowd criticizing Rudock early on. Boy did he ever step up. I'll eat my lemon now and will continue to be a fan of him. Good luck Jake. I hope you get a legitimate shot in the NFL. You deserve it.

Maybe he stays a few years and grooms Jackson for future DC. Regardless I think this is a good hire. We have a lot of pieces coming back.

Good for him. Wish he would have went to UVA. Not that UVA was ever really a realistic destination for him.

11/29/2015 - 2:48pm saw this

Interesting indeed. Tough situation for a coach to be in. I'm sure it happens all the time. They interview for jobs, but like everyone else you have to keep working the one you've got.

11/29/2015 - 2:13pm this year

He could get a better job than Maryland this year.

11/29/2015 - 2:10pm Durkin

If it's true, best of luck to him. Enjoyed watching his defense play......for the most part. Michigan is in a good position. They have Greg Mattison who can fill that role, if they can't get someone else.

11/29/2015 - 1:16pm Salary

Not sure what Richt was making. How much do you think UVA is willing to pay this time around?

11/29/2015 - 1:11pm Harbaugh

Soooo glad we got Harbaugh when we did.

11/29/2015 - 12:10pm Yeah

Yeah.....that last question. WTF

11/29/2015 - 12:08pm agree

I agree that there isn't any reason UVA can be as good or better than VT. They have made some great hires in other sports like baseball and basketball. I for one hope they get this one right. 

11/29/2015 - 11:47am boom

boom mathed....lol

Yeah, I don't get it either.

11/29/2015 - 11:41am Minimal

I imagine it wouldn't have a negative impact for us. Nothing to back that up, just speculation. Obviously the more jobs like this one come open, the greater the chance of him leaving. Schools like Maryland may be more willing to jump on him so they aren't let without. On the flip side, if Maryland chooses someone else, Durkin has another job he can interview for.

11/29/2015 - 11:37am Combine

I'm interested to see how Hackenburg does at the NFL combine. He seems to have the physical tools. 

11/29/2015 - 11:31am At least

At least most of their fans are reasonable (at least the ones I encounter). I'm about 3 hrs away but I would love to see them in the Big Ten and get to watch Michigan play football/basketball/soccer/baseball there. Oops, I should have added lacrosse, lol.

11/29/2015 - 11:19am UVA

For selfish reasons I would love to add UVA to the Big Ten. 

Al Golden has ties to UVA, I wonder if he would be interested in the job. Seems like he would be a better fit there than say....Miami

11/29/2015 - 10:58am Glad to hear it

Glad to hear about his success. I hope he is still returning kicks/punts. Maybe he can carve out a career in the NFL as a special teams dynamo.

11/29/2015 - 10:06am off the cuff

Just off the cuff I think I would like to see us go against Ole Miss. Probably just because it is something different. After that I would pick Georgia.

11/29/2015 - 9:43am My favorite

My favorite Dr. Pepper 'Larry Culpepper' commercial is the one where he is consoling the fan in the corner of the stadium.

11/29/2015 - 9:08am This was my first thought

This was my first thought as well. I can only think of a few famous individuals that have done it. Not knocking it in any way. 

I hope it helps continue to get his story out and raise money/awareness. #Chadtough
