Same goes for Wyatt Shallman. I figured he would have been a perfect fit in this offense. I can't remember any big injuries

03/20/2015 - 2:15pm Haven't bought any new clubs

Haven't bought any new clubs in a few years, but for an intermediate player I would advise you to take a look at some lower end TaylorMade irons. IMO TaylorMade can't be beat in terms of an iron game for someone your skill level.

Extensive knee problems combined with this off the course incident that you may have heard about, I think it was in the news...

Does anyone know why Drevno was bumped down from OC to OL coach (with Shaw receiving the promotion) going from San Diego to Stanford?

06/14/2013 - 11:20am Young people could be the key

Young people could be the key to the turnaround in the city. Cheap rent is one of the major draws to Detroit, along with the opportunity to live in an urban environment with so much rich history.

Universities (including U of M) have programs that send students to Detroit for summers to take classes, work internships, participate in service projects, etc. These little things make a difference. Companies like Quicken Loans have helped too by providing benefits to relocate employees within city boundaries. 

Crime is an interesting dilemma in Detroit. We obviously all know about the dangers of the city, but unless you venture too far off the beaten path you should typically be ok. The statistics and portrayal of crime in the media really is terrifying though and gives the city a terrible stigma that really can't be shaken, especially from people who didn't grow up near Detroit or visit it often.

I'm optimistic about the city's return, but not in the short term.

06/14/2013 - 11:10am 100% true. (Coming from

100% true. (Coming from another policy nerd). The city is almost going to have to consolidate within it's boundaries and that could be an incredibly difficult and slow process. One idea that I've heard thrown around is more urban farming to support a sustainable food system within the city. It can make the open space much more asthetically pleasing and provide access to food that a lot of people don't have. Check out "Detroit City is the Place To Be" by Mark Spinelli, it's very well written and a quick read.

Northwestern? This looks far better than Northwestern to me. We return 1 starter, 1 guy who started most of the season, 2 top 50 freshman, and a guy who proved he could contribute when we needed him (albeit not someone you would prefer as a starter at this point)
