11/21/2011 - 2:09pm I thought I heard somewhere

that you had to have actually graduated from the University you attended/played for to say that. Of course, I don't know if David Harris or Jason Avant graduated, but I know Manningham declared for the draft before his senior year.

11/21/2011 - 11:59am Eeeexcellent...

Thank you. I will have to remember that for future reference.

But your response makes me think of "The Royal Tenenbaums" so plus 1 to you for that (in theory...I haven't been on here in awhile and clearly the 'voting' system has changed).

11/21/2011 - 11:44am May I...

use that photo as my Facebook profile pic? With credit to Wallaby, of course...don't want to commit any copyrighting infringement type crime stuff.

I have a 'friend'/former co-worker who is a Bucknut and I would just LOVE to get him riled up. This would work nicely.

06/17/2011 - 11:42am Yes

The top four fundraisers got either a grill, a flat-screen TV, a Nintendo Wii or a Pandora bracelet.

This year they also did raffle prizes - another cool addition.

06/16/2011 - 1:15pm You Have to Be

18 to particpate. My 13-year-old niece wanted to go with me this year but she'll have to wait. I know there were some women there over 70. I'm not sure if they played in the scrimmage, though.

It was MUCH better this year than the last three (although I didn't participate last year, as I was 6 months pregnant). No offense to Rich Rod, but they really put way too much emphasis on their wives and the players were really only there for lunch. The first year I did it was Carr's last year and this academy was much more like that.

We also got to do punting and kicking, which is new - and the throwing drills were way better. And...it doesn't hurt that we actually got to go in the Big House this time!

09/10/2010 - 10:57am $5200 per week

for 17 weeks minimum.  About $89,000 annually, so not too bad. They can pay him more if they want to.

But I hope he gets a roster spot somewhere in the future.

08/23/2010 - 11:08am I love that he's doing well and getting good publicity...

after all of the hate he got at Michigan.  Maybe some of it was justified, but I always hoped he would succeed. I just hope he keeps up the good work and gets more opportunities to make big plays like that in the regular season.

07/20/2010 - 12:29pm Hey Bartender!

Jobu needs a refill!

07/13/2010 - 3:32pm And this is why

I'm going to breastfeed my infant at a golf course clubhouse the first chance I get! Of course I doubt many men would complain about that.

The woman who complained can't possibly be a TUoOSU grad because, as we know, ALL Buckeyes pee standing up and outdoors.

06/14/2010 - 11:52am I couldn't participate this year

because I'm 6 months pregnant...but I did watch the scrimmage.  One thing I don't get - are the defense teams supposed to tackle the offensive teams?  It seems like some of the offensive players (who get the ball) keep running for a 'touchdown' after they've been tagged by a defensive player.  If that's going to happen, we should be allowed to tackle!

Also, I heard about the film review sessions - I'm sad I missed that, but looking forward to it next year!

06/08/2010 - 5:12pm When I looked at the comments on the ESPN page

I was sure someone would make a reference to Weis but nobody bit. I knew I'd find one here. +1 to you.  Thank you.

06/08/2010 - 12:00pm Actually...

it's not her son, it's her boyfriend's son.  I will concede that she probably bought the shirt for him but I'm guessing she doesn't make the decision on what he wears. So does that make her less hot, or is she still hot because she bought him the shirt he ultimately decided to wear?

06/01/2010 - 12:42pm Trader Joe's

has their own store brand of this yogurt - they have fat-free, low-fat and full fat - but I don't know if they have the honey variety.

05/28/2010 - 2:08pm I agree

I have absolutely no expectation that my husband will see this movie...and I won't make plans to, unless a friend asks me to go. I will probably watch it at 2 in the morning on HBO when it finally leaves the theaters. But, that's just me.  I really wanted to see the last "Harry Potter" in the theater, so I went to the first Sunday matinee by myself. Much more enjoyable when the husband isn't making snide comments or asking when it will be over. And, I don't have to give him a blow job! Double bonus.

04/29/2010 - 12:04pm Hmmmm....

That gives me goosebumps. Love the Zingerman's shot. Mmmmm, Zingerman's...now I want a Tarb's Tenacious Tenure.

04/06/2010 - 1:43pm I wish

I could up-vote you 50 times for the Jobu reference.

03/26/2010 - 2:44pm Ah, but I heard

that somebody collected his tears in a vial and they are still being used in clinical trials for a cancer cure. So something good is apparently coming from them.

03/25/2010 - 10:50am But is she still

a Michigan football fan? I'm assuming, since she is married to you, she has at the very least acquired an appreciation or love for Michigan football. Please tell me that doesn't go away as a result of pregnancy/hormones.

03/23/2010 - 3:26pm Have you agreed on the middle name?

Because if it's Woodson I think you're in the clear.

03/23/2010 - 1:31pm Go away...

Gatin'!

03/17/2010 - 11:24am Wildcats...

and the scene in Forrest Gump where he runs all the way out of the stadium.

03/11/2010 - 5:41pm Better that than

a real picture of my boobs.

03/11/2010 - 5:32pm Shut up, Harriet!

That's a sure way to get him killed!

03/09/2010 - 10:45am Not going to neg you, but...

I have yet to find Chicago pizza that comes anywhere close to the pizza I had in Brooklyn years ago...of course, maybe my memories of that pizza are tainted by large amounts of alcohol, but...

And I really hate getting ribbed for asking pizza establishments in Chicago to pie-cut my pizza. Not a fan of square-shaped pieces of pizza.

03/09/2010 - 10:42am They also delivered

pints of Stucchi's. Evil, evil Pizza House.

03/05/2010 - 5:55pm I just hope

they're not importing the Vernors.

03/05/2010 - 3:57pm +1

just for your avatar and signature line.

03/05/2010 - 3:39pm One of the things that makes you superior...

is your ability to separate your love of Michigan football from work. Just tell him when we beat tuoOSU you won't rub his nose in it, because Michigan fans have more social skills and don't have to thump their chests when things are good.

Or you can just tell him that the jerk store called, and they're running out of him.

02/12/2010 - 1:35pm Hopefully the link works...

Here's more proof she was there:

02/12/2010 - 1:20pm I was a freshman then,

but I vaguely remember the buzz on campus was something like "We Got Bush!" when he was announced as the speaker.

02/12/2010 - 1:18pm Wow...I couldn't even remember her...

I thought we had Carole Simpson...clearly I wasn't inspired by her speech. And damn was it cold and wet.

02/11/2010 - 4:25pm Very close...

It's Sklar.

02/08/2010 - 11:23am I don't think PIKE was on campus

when Rich Eisen was at UM. I think he was in Pi Kappa Phi.

01/28/2010 - 5:14pm I like

Stupid Sexy Flanders. Almost feels like I'm wearin' nothing at all!

01/28/2010 - 2:50pm Boring...

Initials and current city of residence. If I tried to come up with something creative I would overthink it to the point that my head would explode a la "Scanners."

01/28/2010 - 2:28pm Awesome, thanks...

I've been watching Magnum P.I. on Netflix (streaming) for the last week so this makes me smile.

01/22/2010 - 4:53pm The American Office

obviously has a leg up on the sheer volume of episodes, but quality-wise I think they are about the same. Funny in different ways, but both have elicited a snort-laugh from me at some point.

01/22/2010 - 4:46pm Excuse me,

I believe you have my stapler...

01/22/2010 - 4:23pm My husband

food-jerks everything. I buy some peanut butter, put it in the cupboard, and three days later it is completely gone. He gets the munchies in the middle of the night and goes to town, then doesn't tell me, and when I reach in the pantry/cupboard to retrieve said peanut butter (or chips, or peanuts, or cheese...pick a consumable) it is gone. It's like my sole function is to gather food for him to eat and then take inventory on a daily basis just so I have what I need when I want to make something. I wouldn't have a problem with this if he actually went grocery-shopping EVER, or if I didn't also have a full-time job, but NOOOOOOOOOOOO! I am running out of food hiding places.

01/22/2010 - 4:11pm Not in my house

I hook up all of the televisions, cable boxes, various media players, etc...my husband handles the computer stuff, though.

01/21/2010 - 4:45pm I've gone

for the last three years. One of my best friends has been doing it (that's what she said) since it started, and I finally said I would go in 2007, even though I had lost the 'passion' for Michigan football years ago. My husband says I am the big swinging dick in the house because I am REALLY into Michigan football now, probably more than I ever was as an undergrad(I'm not sure how to take that). I also started going to games again - I make the 3-4 hour drive at least 3 times a year now just to go to the game.

I also learned a lot during the day-long (actually, it's not even a full day) academy and I now enjoy watching professional football, too. The point of this long post is that, for me, it is a great time and really sparked an interest that I really never had before. One tip, though...stretch before the day's activities begin. After the strength & conditioning drills I couldn't sit down for a couple of days (here it comes...that's what she said).

01/15/2010 - 3:41pm I do like

30 Rock and The Office, that's about it...but the demographic that prefers Jay Leno probably doesn't appreciate the humor on those shows, either. Of course everyone has a different idea of what funny is, but I don't know many people my age who find the format of the old Tonight Show to be compelling TV. I guess the folks at NBC don't want to ride out the growing pains of Conan's reign and are just going back to a formula that is 'guaranteed' to work. That may blow up in their faces, though.

01/14/2010 - 10:47am Even if you're a USAID employee

they're painfully difficult to work with. My dad was a Foreign Service Officer for 15+ years and worked in the State Dept. or Ronald Reagan building until he retired, and his #1 complaint was the monumental effort it took to get his projects off the ground. A lot of bureaucracy and ego. Let's hope Rajiv can make some headway.

look good but not sure how comfortable they are...there's also Allen-Edmonds, Cole-Haan, Florsheim, Rockport...not sure how dressy you want to get and what's available in Omaha. Borns are comfy but may not be formal enough.

11/24/2009 - 10:33am In Section 33

there was a guy sitting behind me and my friend who decided that Roy Roundtree is a good porn star name and proceeded to yell this at everyone (including a kid)in his general vicinity every time the announcer said his name.

For the record, I too said "fuck" at the highly frustrating plays. I couldn't help myself.

11/20/2009 - 3:20pm Or this...

It's easy to grin when your ship (running back) comes in and you've got the stock market (random OSU defensive player) beat...but a man worthwhile is a man who can smile when his shorts are too tight in the seat (can't think of anything here, help please?).

11/20/2009 - 3:14pm The Buckstar...

you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

11/20/2009 - 10:58am Henne stands for

goodness, not badness.

11/19/2009 - 4:13pm No way that's real

It HAS to be Photoshop, right? RIGHT? Please say it's Photoshop!!!

11/18/2009 - 5:06pm Don't forget Greg

Mathews. I'll miss watching him. Through his apartment window at 3 in the morning.
