Travel all over the country building sports venues, both collegiate and professional.
This is actually achievable for me. I am a civil engineer with tons of experience. I'm just trying to convince the Mrs. to become a traveling nurse and go with me.
I am seriously heavily considering this career.

Or a hops farmer.

Sitting on my deck watching the dogs chase each other. On beer #2. #1 was Oberon. #2 is Hopslam. Eased into the Hopslam. Besides, I ran out of cold Oberon. Oh, and listening to New Orleans Jazz on Pandora. Life is good.

Happy Friday!

I don't know if its the Oberon or if Dakota is really that good but I'm super impressed with their defense and penalty kill. Wow.

Who coaches those for them? Mr. Hackett, are you watching? Go. Get. Him.

Do you remember when they would post test scores by your social security number for everyone to see?

Please look long term. What may seem like a great idea now may not look so good years from now.

Many years ago a friend from college (UM of course) got married and three college friends went over to GR for the wedding. We decided to meet for drinks for the Michigan/Wisconsin game. One drink led to another and we three Michigan Men didn't make our friend's wedding but rather just the reception, all over a Michigan football game. I think all three of us have felt terrible since.

The morale of my pathetic story is that special events occur only so often. Michigan football games occur 7 or more times per year every year. Don't let Michigan sports get in the way of life, bud. I'm a huge Michigan fan and it took a little while for me to realize how badly I screwed up. But, we old guys are always preaching to the young ones about our transgressions.

Whatever you decide please make sure you BOTH have fun.

If you make it to Utah I'll gladly buy you both a drink for having read my diatribe.

Go Blue! Go Real Life!!

I just did a quick Google search and it appears Initial Signing Day is April 15th and Final Signing Day is May 20. 

Can I assume it is all sewn up on 4/15 or sooner? 

Will most recruits wait until 4/15 and make a hat selection or is basketball not as Big Time as football?

I don't follow basketball recruiting nearly as closely as I should so forgive my ignorance.

Thanks in advance.

02/15/2015 - 5:45pm Good call, except

The offices are at the north end above the main entrances.

I like to park on the side streets off Hoover. There is also a free UM lot at Division and Hill at the NW corner.

Have fun and Go Blue!

02/12/2015 - 4:38pm Tickets

Damn I hope I'm able to score tickets to that game.  MGoWife and I are planning a week long trip out to that game with some time at the Grand Canyon.


Don't season ticket renewals come out next month?

Is Happy


02/08/2015 - 4:57pm Thanks for posting

He's still great fun to watch. He is missed.

Go McGary!

02/07/2015 - 11:54pm Tick Tock

This game can't end fast enough. Momentum has surely flipped.

02/07/2015 - 11:51pm Defense?

Play some D already

02/07/2015 - 11:49pm Defense

Had played tough all night till that goal, kinda standing around.

02/07/2015 - 11:29pm Worst

Worst outdoor game attendance ever.

We all knew this was a bad idea. Maybe they now know too.

02/07/2015 - 11:11pm I am not liking these announcers

No Christmas cards for them.

02/07/2015 - 9:31pm So

We lose a home game with home ice advantage to play outside on slow ice, which in my opinion gives State an advantage over our boys.

I hate this situation.

We better take it to them this game or George is getting upset.

02/07/2015 - 6:55pm I cannot drink

I cannot drink Hopslam that long into the night without some serious issues.

Damn delay.  Damn Brandon.

02/07/2015 - 5:22pm Brilliant!

Have a Red Stripe on me.

02/07/2015 - 5:18pm I would post a link but

the only one I could find was that trash rag from Detroit.  I refuse.

02/07/2015 - 5:13pm I had to look - I want to now poke my eyes out

"Michigan University"



02/07/2015 - 3:47pm Valentine's Day

You sir are a romantic.  I like your style.  I just threw that option out to my UM obsessed wife and she liked the idea too.  See you there.

02/07/2015 - 3:08pm Awesome

Thanks for posting.

Go Blue!

02/07/2015 - 2:04pm Did I miss something?

I was quite busy at work the last 2 days.  Smith is still in play, isn't he? 

IDK what's you're talking about, sir.

02/07/2015 - 1:59pm IDK

I'm not sure how much Urbs cares about this stuff, you know, like integrity, honesty, character. 

02/07/2015 - 1:56pm Hey Johnny

I wish I could upvote you more.  +1

02/07/2015 - 1:43pm don't forget

don't forget UCLA.  Smith is still in play. 


-the poet

02/07/2015 - 1:35pm Headsets come to mind

and/or special teams coach that would have fielded 11 players.

02/01/2015 - 3:30pm It is unhealthy

How much I hate State.

Good showing on the road in that environment.

01/30/2015 - 7:07pm Two Hopslam down

Now taking a break before #3.

Go Blue! Finish Strong in recruiting!

Beat State!

01/29/2015 - 12:20pm @IU experience

You raise a good point, Mr. Yost.  This year's @OSU was similar.  OSU was on a huge high from the Football NC and they kicked our butts.

But Coach B pulled our starters and got the then-scrubs some playing time in that atmosphere.  As you suggested, that may pay dividends down the road. Hopefully some earnings will appear in East Lansing on Sunday.



01/28/2015 - 3:35pm I can't recall, alcohol was involved

They shut him down though.  I was at the game and it was painful.  I was at both recent losses at MSU.  I will never go again as I'm sure the losses were my fault. 

01/28/2015 - 3:24pm can't

can't. stop. watching.

01/28/2015 - 2:25pm NOBODY

Oh wait, wrong question.

01/28/2015 - 2:23pm I don't know

I've seen Trey Burke go into East Lansing and fall apart.  We're taking several freshmen to actually play big minutes there this Sunday. 

Here's to pulling off a huge upset.  It would be a huge surprise to me.  But then again, last night was a surprise to me when Walton didn't play. 

Go Blue!

01/28/2015 - 12:41pm Seth's "submit your helmets for inspection"

Porky's came to mind.  The scene where the women gym teacher wanted to inspect the helmets.  I LOL'd to my own thought.

Also, this write up made me think that we're (UM Football) going to all of a sudden start kicking some ass.  How can you read the probable (not potential) improvement forthcoming and not think that?  Exciting times coming this way. 

Go Blue!

01/28/2015 - 8:14am Props to Montoya

You gotta give props to Al Montoya too.  He came in late and shut it down for FLA. 

Good to see.

Go Blue!

01/22/2015 - 12:36pm Why does the NFL

Why does the NFL require a ball inflate pressure that presents an inferior product? 

If Tom Brady performs better with a football at 10.5psi then why can't he use a football at that pressure?  Where is the advantage?  Let Andrew Luck inflate/deflate to the pressure he desires. 

It's not like basketball where you share the ball every 35 seconds. 

I really do not understand the issue I guess. 

01/20/2015 - 7:21pm You are

Absolutely correct sir. I just rewound it and watched again. Good catch.

01/20/2015 - 1:18pm worse NFL team in Jacksonville

Is there more than one NFL team in Jacksonville?
