Sadly, #2 is right as well. Sources: T's sister who was on the team in the late 90s early 2000s when they did almost get to make the jump to varsity and ex-gf who was on team in late 2000s.

drop me an email at jdlaw09 at gmail, and I'll try to connect you with a friend who can't make it on Friday night.

OP is at least partly responsible for getting KH here (I believe HS mentor, but MM14, please correct if I have it wrong), so don’t be too harsh

09/15/2017 - 11:53pm Why I'm not worried about tracking issues

Not only was the Cinci punter an Aussie, but also left footed. They were mostly short punts with weird spin. DPJ will track other punters much better.

That said, very impressed with Perry's tracking in the same situation...exactly what was needed in that situation

06/05/2017 - 1:58pm Great advice

The blankets from the hospital are key...I brought home three different items, one each for a dog and two cats to acclimate to before bringing newborn home. When we brought my daughter home, I also made sure that the pets each got a chance to come and give her a good sniff soon after getting inside. Over a year later, and we have had no problems at all, even when the toddler gets a little handsy

01/26/2017 - 12:43pm Worth noting

Of those five starters, four of whom having a few years in the NFL, the fifth, Perry Dorrestein, also hung around practice squads for a couple of years. So a sip of coffee in the NFL for all, if not a full cup.

12/21/2016 - 3:21pm I don't think we disagree all

I don't think we disagree all that much, if at all, Rabbit. I was offering other details that had remained unmentioned that I think may inform some people's opinion on the "selfishness" of the decision. Whether right or wrong, I just happen to think that is part of the calculus for some.

12/21/2016 - 2:20pm I have a sneaking suspicion, Brian

that some of the discomfort you feel with McCaffrey's decision stems from the fact that his family is already wealthy.  A guy who had very little if any family wealth holding himself out for the draft feels very different than a guy who comes from a family already worth millions.  The stakes are different, even if that's just a small variable in the calculus of the decision

Thanks for the preview. Nice easy reminder that once football is done, there will be other things to focus on. Not that I want football to end any time soon...

She's testing you to see if you'll reject her for not being like you. Watch games with her. Cheer for Michigan, and when OSU is on, let her cheer for OSU without any ribbing. Give her the safety to know that you'll accept her no matter what, and even if she doesn't end up rooting for M, she'll at least know that you have her back even when you two disagree

My wife and I got married at Matthei Botanical Gardens. Outskirts of the city, beautiful, and decently priced. Options for catering have to be on an approved catering list, but there are some excellent choices. And they won't serve liquor there (only beer and wine). While that's a deal breaker for some, it saved us a ton of money

03/15/2016 - 8:52am Excellent stuff!

These posts (and the gifs) have been a great read all year.  I'm reduced to listening to many of the games on the radio, and while I love Al's enthusiasm, he leaves quite a bit to the imagination.  

I really hope that Brian is paying you extra for these posts this year, given the sheer number of goals to analyze.  Excellent work again, and thank you sincerely for your dedication to hockey coverage on here! It fills a little the hole left in my heart after the blogging retirement of yostbuilt

Yeah...Allen Trieu and Sam Webb were talking about it on Friday. Sounds like he committed to Loeffler, so his staying with VaTech probably depends on what happens with him. No idea if M is interested anyway, but figured it was a fun fact

Your timeline is wrong on Battle. He committed, Langford asked if there was still room for him if he were to also commit, the staff said no and Langford subsequently committed to MSU. It wasn't until after Langford committed to MSU that Battle decommitted.

10/08/2015 - 9:32am I'm glad that we are in

I'm glad that we are in agreement then. I said that instead of being political, what was said by another poster that unions being responsible for eliminating 14 hour work days was "pretty historically accurate". Notice that I made no arguments about what Harbaugh said or the current state of unions. Instead, I made a limited comment about historic implications, with which you apparently agree given your statement that "unions once were much more significant than they are now". So, bygones?

I wouldn't be that confident in the argument, as the NCAA made pretty clear that nobody from the university could mention or advertise the camp. By the NCAA rule decision, it is presumptively NOT conducted or sponsored by the University
