Makes no sense the Eagle being the California act.  Should be Metallica as all the founding members except for Lars were born in California.

I live in rural California and we have radio base ISP. Here's the link to our local company just so you can see what I'm talking about technologically. 8 years ago satellite was the only option, but the speed and cost of this service is great. Plus it's a small locally owned company so very good about things like service and privacy. If this service does not exist in your area, consider it a start up opportunity as there is a big demand for this in rural areas as you know.

Was looking up his track stats. 11.0 100m, 22.7 200m, 21' 5" long jump, 49'2" shot put. Can any track people here give feedback on those numbers for someone his size.

Does that rhyme with Stroh's?  I wish that was stilled brewed with Detroit River water, and not made in Los Angeles.  Just for old times sake.

Damn, Bellaire looks like a long pull from GR.  But the Short's lineup looks legit.  Are there any stores that are known for carrying fresh bottlings?  Or maybe I can convince the wife that we should take the kids to Sleeping Bear Dunes then "mistakenly" end up at Short's.

Lived all over the city, favorite places for post 20's living are the following:

Glen Park: Best neighborhood with a BART station

Current D-line coach and was interim coach between Singletary and Harbaugh and ownership likes him.   His presence on the staff is the biggest reason ownership and management are willing to burn bridges with a universally respected coach. 

     Just as side note, the idea of Harbaugh going to Michigan is not even a possible thought out here in the Bay Area.  If it happens, it will be a complete WTF story here.

12/02/2013 - 4:29pm Good, Let's Move Forward

    I know the internets love scheme, but Tom Herman didn't out scheme anybody on Saturday.  A physically superior team steamrolled a physically weaker team. Sure some scheme was in place to keep the defense honest, but at the end of the day that was the much derided MANBALL right down Michigan's throat.  Al Borges didn't out scheme anybody, the run blocking was good enough to keep Ohio honest and Gardner and the receiving corp did a fantastic job of beating people.  I don't think Al pressed X Y and R1 at the same time to make Funchess vault some dude.  Players make plays. 

    Michigan wants to win championships, looking at a list of past NCAA champions and I'm struggling to find the team the schemed it's way to the top.  I see a lot of transcendant talent that won championships.  At the ultimate level, becoming national champion, college football is honest offense against honest deffence, stronger more talented team wins.  Bottom line, this staff has demonstrated the ability to attract the type of talent that at least gives you the chance to be elite and that is all that really matters.   This year's team just did not have the talent or experience to be elite.  Every college football fan has turned into Veruca Salt with a "I want it now" attitude.  It's time to grow up and realize life comes in fits and starts  This is not a video game, you can't play a season over the weekend.  Building a championship team takes time, laying a foundation is hard work, but you have to be blind to not see it is coming into place. Can't wait for the bowl game, one more time to cheer for Team 134.

Weird that Breslin Center at MSU is not part of this.  But it is really shocking that The James at Ohio is not a member.  Wonder what the story is there?

3 Floyd's and Bell's are like sasquatch legends out here cause we never get to taste them. I'm hoping what they are pouring are good examples

08/28/2012 - 4:02pm I feel you!

I'm about 200 miles north of you in Paso Robles.  My substandard Euchre skills get used once a year during summer vacations in Lexington.  Sure the weather's nice out here, but no Bells distribution, no Euchre, and constant media reminders about how rad USC is...

04/12/2012 - 3:46pm Delonte

  Any word on why Delonte Hollowell get's no mentions when talking about secondary?  He seemed to make enough of an impact in practice last year to burn his red shirt.  Played decently against Nebraska and made a huge play in the Sugar Bowl.  I was expecting him to be at least the third corner if not pushing for the 2nd spot.  Then this spring has been crickets.  Anyone have insight?

I hope I get more than ten people willing to do this.

01/21/2011 - 3:16pm Awesome

I'd love for a more video talented member to make a reel of Carvin's tackles.  He and Cam both had a nasty mentality to me when making hits.  Sadly Cam would bounce off or fall down due to poor technique.  I forget exaclty which game it was, but I rember Carvin getting credit for a sack because his hit blew the quarteback behind the LOS.  He also had that get up quick and swagger about him after hits that showed how much he wants to hit.  That to me was one of the biggest elements missing in our defense.  That desire to blow people up.  Carvin's got it, and thanks for the data to back it up.  Dude was an undersized true freshman.  He's gonna be a true beast.


On a side note, I love how someone can post some previously discussed pointless topic on the board with a grammatical error and get 40 responses in 10 minutes.  This dude spent hours and hours putting together something actually useful and has 4 comments hours later.  Wow.

01/13/2011 - 4:52pm Observation For Stat Type

The people who seem to doubt that Denard can, you know, be an actual QB, claim he could only hit bubble screens and shorts to the flat.  Yet if you look his stats for big 10 play only, he led the league in yards/attempt at 9.3.  I have always been led to belive that yards/att directly relates to generally how far downfield most attempts are.  This makes me think we was actually hitting people downfield.  I can't find YAC adjustment stats for college, which would settle the argument.  But just wanted to get feedback on my understanding of yards/att.

01/13/2011 - 4:23pm Best West Coast QB

In my opinion, the best west coast QB of all time, Steve Young, was just a tad over 6' and was not as great a passer as Joe Montana was.  But he was able to make the 5-15 yard passes, and his scrambling/running ability was what truly made that early 90's 49ers offense the best in the league.  He would generally take off 4-8 times a game.  If Al Borges can work with Denard on picking his spots to scramble, design some roll outs where he can choose run or pass, I think Denard can be extremely dangerous in the West Coast.  Remember, it is the THREAT of running not just his actual running that makes him such a dificult QB to defend.  But above all, Denard has the one trait that is most important for all great QBs.  His improvement from freshman to sophmore could only be accomplished by someone who has that elite internal drive the pushes one improve.  He's got that.

   Also if he no longer has to worry about making reads on every single run play as well as pass plays, it seems to me that the West Coast may be a bit simpler for him to run.  Is that crazy talk?  I mean, in the RR offense, Denard had to learn and make the proper read on every single play.  In a pro-style, he can just hand the ball off roughly 50% of the time.  Wouldn't that allow him to concentrate more on pass reading during practice, thus allowing him to develop even more as a passer?

12/13/2010 - 5:58pm Agreed


12/13/2010 - 4:33pm Agreed

I think that is the obvious next step.  I might put together a look at the lineman at Wisc and MSU and see what it looks like.  My guess is start big, get bigger.

12/11/2010 - 3:19pm Dang It

12/11/2010 - 3:13pm Sorry

Sometimes watching sporting events via a live blog makes me think I'm playing Zork again and I am reminded that I'm not as cool as I think I am.  So I quickly try and think about football which makes me feel more manly.

12/11/2010 - 3:07pm Yeah

He's one of the freshman I was hoping to get clarified, I thought I saw him on the field too, but not sure.  Thanks

12/10/2010 - 5:44am I thought he was better too,

I thought he was better too, as a player.  But that being said, the production did not increase in any concrete way. He was fourth in tackles among the DL this year, less than Banks.  So that was my question as to maybe the 3-tech being a more natural fit.


40 Tackles

6.5 TFL

5 Sacks


30 Tackles

8.5 TFL

4 Sacks

Maybe there is something in the UFR that demonstrates an obvious improvement.  But I didn't see it, or at least see it in a way where I thought to myself, wow RVB is obviously more natural at the end.  But if you feel that he was obviously better at DE, than I'll consider my question answered.  THanks.
