I’ve got a pair of unused shoelaces I could trade.

The summer before Rashan’s freshman year I was in town with my 12 year old son for hockey camp.  We went down for the big Nike/Jordan unveil at the Mden.  Rasgan was there as were a number of people players.  My son went and talked with him and got his autograph.  Rasgan was such a sweet guy, so encouraging and warm to my son.  Afterwards I found his mom on Facebook and sent her a message letting her know how well she raised him.  To my surprise she messaged back, asking about my son and thanking me.  It told me everything I needed to know about her and her son.  Rashan and his mom are Michigan through and through.  If he could be out there for his team, no doubt he would be.

8-4, 3rd in the East.  Beat Sparty, losses to OSU, Wisky, PSU.

Yes because everyone should be measured solely based on their biggest mistake.

Meh, Satan seems like a much cooler dude to party with for eternity. Look at it this way, he’s not the insecure one that needs to write his own book and constantly ty and convince people that his party is where it’s at.

10/06/2017 - 9:07am Well then I'll just sit hear

Well then I'll just sit here being a fool... but one happily enjoying his C.R. Lawrence fine two inch axe style scraper oscillating knife blade thanks to a celebrity endorsement from one Mr Swanson.

09/14/2017 - 11:20am Would never count out the OHL

Would never count out the OHL for any of these kids.  John Gibson did the same thing... USNDTP committed to OSU, switched to Michigan then opted for the OHL.

08/31/2017 - 4:55pm Limit of 2 gallons per family

Limit of 2 gallons per family right now. So I'll hopefully be able to find more this weekend. I have 4 kids aged 7 thru 15 so I know your pain.

lol... stalker!

08/31/2017 - 12:18am Gas shortage? Fuck I can't

Gas shortage? Fuck I can't even find milk at any local store for my kids. I was lucky enough to find eggs and a loaf of bread today. Hurricane Harvey can kiss my white ass.

08/26/2017 - 1:49pm I'm in Seabrook right near

I'm in Seabrook right near the bay. So far no major flooding or storm surge. Just raining and some wind. Of course the question is where the storm goes and how long it sits over Houston... major flooding here is still a very real possibility. While my kids have never experienced a snow day, they've had their share of hurricane days in the 10 years we've been down here.

08/02/2017 - 12:40pm Naw... we should go back to

Naw... we should go back to only wearing shades of gray.  Our football team was most successful when the world was black and white.

Sure, just go get yourself outfitted at Meijer Thrifty Acres.

Had a couple redbud's from Independece (Austin brewery)... but now enjoying some makers mark on the rocks. Though I really wish I were enjoying the Puerto Rican 9 years my junior I've been seeing... cheers to mid life crisis!

Alec Gallimore... his engin 100 class is what inspired me to switch from CE to Aero. Glad I see he's now the dean of engineering.

I was hoping it was the Wreck of the Edmund Fitsgerald.  Oh well.

What I need is a sports only streaming service.

07/07/2017 - 12:57pm One thing to remember,

One thing to remember, Michigan AD pays the university out-of-state tuition for all schlarships... even if the kid recieving it is from instate, which should more than balance out that ~$250k.

07/06/2017 - 12:40pm Yep, as a father to four,

Yep, as a father to four, good advice here.  I found that the little scented individual plactic bags they sell in the baby stores work far better than any diaper caddy.  Just tie them tight and throw them in the regular kitchen trash you take out every day.  If it's an extra special diaper, wrap it in a grocery bag too and take it straight to the outside trash.

A good baby swing for a fussy baby... not all babies like them though.

07/02/2017 - 1:53am Independence redbud...

Independence redbud... Kalamazoo stout...rum and coke...

Wait is this not the Saturday drinking thread???

I'm drunk and going to bed, thanks Brandon and congrats shoelace!

Well, you've proven you're the real WD as that has got to be the most WD reply ever.

Freddy, shouldn't you be concentrating on the o-line at Ypsi?

Some 8th Wonder Rocket Fuel... a coffee porter local to Houston, TX. Delicious stuff.

Quick, someone call Ken Holland so he can find out if KRod has room in his trunk for Riley Sheahan's hockey bag.

Your god daughter obviously doesn't love you, else she wouldn't be putting you through this.

Do what I do, be a 36 year old man who sponges off of his parents xfinity account.

Note: they use my Netflix/Hulu accounts.

06/18/2017 - 12:50am Another role of his I liked

Another role of his I liked as a kid was the 80's movie dream team about a group of psych patients that get lost in NYC whileven route to a Yankees game. Has Michael Keaton, Christopher Lloyd and the grandpa from everyone lives Raymond.

06/13/2017 - 1:50pm 1.  Top conferences are

1.  Top conferences are Hockey East and NCHC.  Big 10 is stacked with traditional powers and should be right near the top, but some of those big schools (Michigan, MSU, Wisky) are in a bit of a lull.

2. http://www.uscho.com/faq/pairwise-rankings-explanation/

3/5.  It's not just the NHL, but major junior hockey in Canada.  Kids get scooped up at 15/16 to play major junior and often times go that route before they even start getting recruitied for college hockey.  Once you go major junior (since there is a bit of monetary compensation) you lose your eligibilty in the eyes of the NCAA.  So recruiting is different in hcokey as compared to other NCAA sports.  You're not just recruiting against other schools, but other leagues.  You also are recruiting kids that are sometimes a couple years removed from high school playing junior hockey in the US.  I'll let others answer questions on how to follow hockey recruiting.

4. Bottom line is Michigan still has talent up and down the roster... this isn't basketball where a coach may need a few years to bring in top players for his system.  I think things could turn around rather quickly.

05/26/2017 - 3:05pm It'd be funny but there's no

It'd be funny but there's no fight there.

My ideal scenario goes something like this... Jim, Meyer and Mike D sit down at a bennigans after the B1G coaches meeting to share a delicious Monte Cristo sandwich.  Meyer and Mikey each take one piece, while Jim goes in aggresively and grabs the last two.  Fight ensues which results in Jim claiming all 4 pieces and even licking the dusting of powdered sugar off the fingertips of his vanquished foes.

05/22/2017 - 6:19pm Based on their other YouTube

Based on their other YouTube videos and the content of this one seems like it is clearly meant to be funny not serious.

I don't know that is Wings fans have a leg to stand on... seems like back in the summer if '97, everyone in SE Michigan was blasting the "We Want Stanley" cd they picked up from little caesars.

05/13/2017 - 1:11am 30 mins ago to tell myself

30 mins ago to tell myself not to have that last beer... I think I'm fucking drunk now. Yep fuvking drunk.

Maybe go back 1.5 years to start my divorce then instead of a few months ago so I can be past all the bullshit that's going on right now. Fuck divorce... it sucks... but it has to be be better than staying unhappily married. Wait I change my answer, if I had a time machine e I'd simply travel 6 months in the future when im happy... though I might be drunk then, banging cheapnhookers and collecting stds like 10 year old me collected baseball cards. Ok, I'm going to change my answe again and go back 10 years and not get fucking married. Am I playing this game right? Can you get a dui while operating a time machine?

"That said, however, no, the shoes will not be available for public sale."

Really disppointed that we have still yet to get any public sale retro Jordan's since the contract started.  V's are one of my favorite Jordan sneakers, so it's doubly painful to see these and the ones they gave the pope last week and know I'll never be able to buy them.

04/10/2017 - 5:37pm Kinda like Barry Manilow

Kinda like Barry Manilow coming out of the closest, for some reason I thought this happened years ago.

04/03/2017 - 7:31pm Ownership thing, they hate

Ownership thing, they hate taking time off in the middle of the season and the increased wear/tear it puts on their stars.

04/03/2017 - 7:15pm Doesn't make a lot of sense

Doesn't make a lot of sense when you consider the effort the NHL is putting into expanding viewership into China/Asia... announcing preseason games to be played in Bejing just this week... yet they won't send their players to the olympics in 2018 in South Korea and I'm guessing it'll be a no to China in '22.

Exactly, so shouldn't an April Fools Day article on chatsports mean it's actually true?

Bo received an honorary doctorate and spoke at mine... only reason I went to the big house commencement. Sorry to further shit on your situation.

03/27/2017 - 3:07pm Outside their little region?

Outside their little region?  They are stacked with kids from BC/Alberta/Minnesota/Wisconsin/Michigan... that's a pretty fertile little region.

03/27/2017 - 1:33pm Tech's roster is

Tech's roster is predominantly kids from Western Canada and Minnesota... Houghton is just like home to them.  My brother went to Tech and I seriously considered it, so I've been there numerous times, I wouldn't describe it as away from civilization... especially for a kid from small town Canada or Minnesota/Wisconsin.

You should have countered with "and how many would fly on a space shuttle that is only 99% successful?"

Actually I'm a big supporter of hunters rights... I just will never understand the mindset of hunting an animal simply because they are fun to shoot.

Basketball easily.

03/19/2017 - 3:12pm So you hunt them even though

So you hunt them even though you hate the taste? Ugh.

Gordon Lightfoot?  Heard that new song of his about that boat is a real toe tapper.

I know... what the hell were the Monstars thinking?

03/15/2017 - 12:04pm Bear Bryant was a lifetime

Bear Bryant was a lifetime smoker and alcoholic who had heart attack and strokes in the years leading up to his retirement... then he promptly died of a massive heart attack.

Red has been in great health, and I dare say anyone who has spent any amount of time around him would say he is cognitively sound with a great deal of energy... so yeah, I'd take a 77 year old Red in 2017 over a 69 year old Bear Bryant in the early 80s every day of the week.

03/15/2017 - 2:52am Nah, I think he stayed the

Nah, I think he stayed the right amount of time. Its been a rough few years, however it's never easy to be the successor to a legend. Instead of possibly being stuck with a non-elite legacy hire for 5+ years, Michigan has had a year to go out and find the very best coach available. I would bank on them having done just that as the last few years haven't changed the fact that Michigan is still one of only a handful of top college hockey jobs in the country.

Regardless, one thing we can all agree on is Red has certainly earned the right to go out on his terms!
