Yuengling Black & Tan.  Drove to Toledo with a buddy last week and brought a few cases back across the border to MI.

07/12/2018 - 11:41pm Clemson has had some…

Clemson has had some ridiculous recruiting classes. PSU has recruited well, but not at Clemson's level.  If Urban and OSU don't choke in 2016 @ PSU, this is likely not a conversation.

07/11/2018 - 11:58pm I think it's started because…

I think it's started because him and his father (who was once at a KKK rally) settled a housing discrimination case with the DOJ.  Oh and the whole "Obama wasn't born here" thing probably didn't help.

If an NBA team wants them on the roster for more than 45 days, I assume they can upgrade him to an NBA contract?

07/10/2018 - 2:13pm DIII to the NBA.  This might…

DIII to the NBA.  This might be Beilein's best scouting/developmental story ever.  

Also, not many Exeter grads make the NBA.

Another reason to hate Lomas Brown.

A red circle with an 'x'?

Interesting.

In case /s also doesn't work on this site, I was being sarcastic.

07/09/2018 - 5:10pm That horizontal grid will go…

That horizontal grid will go away eventually.  We built a site at my job with a horizontal grid and it became wasted space.  No one clicked on it and scrolled down for the content anyway.  Hopefully they are using heatmap technology and will revisit that idea in three months.

07/09/2018 - 12:17pm I always felt we kept that…

I always felt we kept that game close to keep Bobby Williams employed as long as possible.  Too bad there was nothing we could do in 2002.

07/09/2018 - 12:14pm I'll be in my basement alone…

I'll be in my basement alone.  I'm not one of those "misery loves company" people and night games at ND have provided plenty of misery.

Maybe I'll grow a pair before 9/1, but right now the plan is to be in the turtle position alone.

07/03/2018 - 5:31pm If it wasn't for a similar…

If it wasn't for a similar Indy Star article about Nassar, that guy would still be a free man.  Articles like this are what leads to other people having the confidence to come forward.

Also, this is an important article about our chief rival and a politician happens to be in the story.  Feels like a very "in bounds" article.

07/03/2018 - 1:46pm A month ago, I was worried…

A month ago, I was worried the summer would drag on.  These commitments are making the days sail by.

07/02/2018 - 3:52pm Or, does anything the…

Or, does anything the Unabomber did make you appreciate his M degree?  Why use a hypothetically bad engineer when we have a really bad human being?

07/02/2018 - 10:03am He ran the 100 meter dash in…

He ran the 100 meter dash in 10.93.  All he needs is a spin move and he can become Jevon Kearse 2.0.

I want that chair for my man cave.  Am I the only one?

06/22/2018 - 10:54pm Whatever.  The way he…

Whatever man.  The way he treated Clarence "The 5th Beatle" Walker was atrocious.

06/22/2018 - 10:44pm Those guys didn't play for a…

Those guys didn't play for a postseason bid because Brian Ellerbee and Tommy Amaker were not good coaches.  People can't blame Webber for one terrible coaching hire and another underwhelming one.

06/22/2018 - 11:58am The difference between…

The difference between Cooper (time before Tressel) and Urban is that Urban is beating Michigan.  There was nothing wrong with Cooper's recruiting.  His coaching?  LOL!

06/21/2018 - 10:03pm I'd bet it's not even Juwan.

I'd bet it's not even Juwan.

06/21/2018 - 10:02pm That's why Harbaugh will be…

That's why Harbaugh will be back to Top 5 recruiting classes if he wins like he should this season.

06/21/2018 - 9:59pm If McGary would've left…

If McGary would've left after his freshman season, we'd probably be saying the same thing about him.  I wouldn't have been surprised to see him go from bench warmer to at worst an early 2nd round draft pick.

06/21/2018 - 9:54pm Neither did going to State…

Neither did going to State for two years.

06/21/2018 - 7:02pm So Purdue guy fires a shot…

So Purdue guy fires a shot at Michigan when we don't play them.  This sounds typical of a program that put O'Korn on Mel Kiper's Big Board.

06/13/2018 - 5:30pm People who don't spent much…

People who don't spent much time outside of downtown/midtown would have that assessment.

Don't disagree with any of the statistics, but Detroit blows for two reasons for the average citizen like me: High property and automobile insurance rates.  City income tax sucks as well.

When I moved back to Detroit in 2010, I almost had a heart attack when my rates jumped.

06/13/2018 - 5:13pm Now I'm looking forward to…

Now I'm looking forward to the WC.

06/13/2018 - 11:15am He'd also say the FCS…

He'd also say the FCS schools down south are better than most MAC schools.

06/13/2018 - 10:19am I doubt Miggy can be bought…

I doubt Miggy can be bought out considering how much money is on the table.  The best they could hope is to trade him, when healthy, and eat 75% of the contract.

Also, Stewart won't be in Detroit until next year at the earliest.  It makes fiscal sense not to start his MLB service clock until they're sure he's ready.

06/13/2018 - 10:15am That's how I felt about…

That's how I felt about Miggy after he came back from the DL.

06/13/2018 - 10:13am Sucks for Miggy, but this is…

Sucks for Miggy, but this is good for the Tigers.  Hicks can play every day so Avila knows if he's the real deal or not. 

Plus, they need all the help they can get to drop in the awful AL Central.  It's best for them long-term to get another top 5 pick in the draft next season.  

Let's have a real rebuild, and not whatever the heck the Red Wings are doing.

06/06/2018 - 10:33am Yeah, but his kids will…

Yeah, but his kids will probably be in the League by then.

06/04/2018 - 12:04am This is not happening for three reasons

1. There are so many bad contracts that he would be stuck with this crew of misfits for at least a couple seasons.  No way they can compete with Boston and Philly with so much money tied into Griffin, Drummond and Jackson.

2. This team can't do any of the things Beilein likes.  They can't space the floor properly with Griffin and Drummond on the court at the same time.  Reggie Jackson can't shoot the 3.

3. Gores is one of the worst owners in professional sports.  He shows up drunk to games and makes an ass of himself.  He only comes to handful of games.  Oh, and look at how he botched the GM and head coaching search.  Hire a GM, then let the GM pick his coach.  Don't do it in reverse or concurrently.

If Beilein leaves, I'll be surprised because he usually makes smart, well thought out decisions.  Plus Beilein shouldn't be in the same conversation as Gores.

05/31/2018 - 4:06pm Preseason hype doesn't matter for UM-ND

They still draw the most eyeballs for a regular season game.  I don't think Auburn/Washington is going to move the needle too much, even though it's a great cross-sectional game.

05/31/2018 - 1:05am We still don't have a GM

Who would agree to coach when they have to win immediately to satisfy the GM that didn't hire them?  I'd love Juwan to coach here, but the Pistons are owned by the only idiot alive that could make the Lions look like a sound, functional organization.

05/30/2018 - 8:45pm I'm kicking myself

I looked at purchasing a house that sits off a fairway in 2008.  It was $43K and needed about $50K in renovations to restore it back to its former glory.  Time to make some friends with my almost neighbors.

05/30/2018 - 7:02pm MLS does have a job

I'm pretty sure I've read that she's still getting paid by MSU to hold some position.

Either way, I don't feel sorry for rich people who have to cancel their travel plans, especially when it relates to testifying about how you went to sleep while a monster was preying on innocent girls.

So it makes sense that an @sshole would hire an @sshole lawyer to represent them.

05/30/2018 - 12:56pm Unless Houston Nutt makes a guest appearance

I think I'll pass.  I'll take Nutt's lawyer actually.  Then we'll probably get some good stuff.

05/30/2018 - 12:52pm double post

05/30/2018 - 12:52pm We don't make the Final Four without him

Say what you will about his regular season performance, but he looked like a 2nd round NBA draft pick in the tournament.

True, he doesn't deserve deity status.  But he is still a 2-year player in Beilein's system, which we all know is hard on freshmen.

05/30/2018 - 12:46pm I'd take him over the guy the Pistons draft...

...in the 1st round this year.

05/30/2018 - 10:02am He didn't make it because he couldn't shoot

Sound familiar?

05/28/2018 - 3:34pm A guy in my church was at Iwo Jima

He was so quiet and humble that we didn't know it until his funeral two years ago.  Great gentleman.

05/28/2018 - 10:09am 1992 Rose Bowl

If we would've won that game, we split the national title with Miami.

05/27/2018 - 11:01pm NBA's always been a superstar first league

That's why it was refreshing to see the Pistons win in '04.  The basketball may have been ugly at times, but that will probably be the first champ without a surefire HOFer in decades.

05/25/2018 - 2:30pm Enjoy that baby boy energy

I have five kids and they're all awesome.  But man, the boys are a bit more active.  Here's just a minor list of what my youngest boy (currently 2 yrs old) has done:

1. Ran the hot water in an upstair bathroom while the family was asleep.  Water overflowed and ruined the ceiling and burned out a sensor in the water heater.

2. Threw the cap to a jar down the toilet, which of course got stuck somewhere in between the first/second floor.

3. Ripped a hole in a pool yesterday that I just blew up two days ago.

4. Ate a glob of vaseline last night.

With all of that...and more...I wouldn't trade my kids for anything in the world.  

Enjoy your son, record as many milestones as possible, and remember to laugh, even when he pelts your car with rocks...yep, my baby boy did that this week also.

Congrats!!!

05/25/2018 - 2:16pm "The Ford family stepped in"

Famous last words.

Seriously though, this city/metropolitan area needs to let one of these rejections (Amazon, Army, MLS) wake them up.  Detroit is not a city that is going to win any of these bids without giving these companies exactly what they want.  Improve the schools, cut the city tax and get at minimum a late-20th century transit and maybe they can start to win some of these companies/organizations over.

05/25/2018 - 12:58pm Kid Rock...

...is that you?

05/24/2018 - 2:55pm If he takes that job...

...he's running because he knew all those guys on the team were littering and kept them on the roster.  That's the only reason why he would pass over better previous coaching opportunities to coach a dead end team at the end of his career.

05/24/2018 - 2:51pm Hiring a coach before a GM is a bad move

Unless Jeff Bower will be the GM (shudders to think about it), it's hard to think that another GM would be willing to work here and have a new coach forced upon him.

05/23/2018 - 3:25pm Not much if you're Jake Fromm

Just sayin'

05/22/2018 - 11:39pm 1990 season was full of gambles

That 1990 season was full of gambles.  People forget that Moeller went for two up 20-10 against Iowa and failed.  Of course we lost by a point.

At OSU, John Cooper gambled on 4th and 1 in the closing minutes instead of playing for the tie, which of course failed and we kicked a game winning FG as time expired.
