Done teaching for the year and getting ready for a week or two at the cabin. Enjoying some All Day IPA for now.

Thoughts go out to the OP and everyone else affected. My 29 year old girlfriend was also recently diagnosed with stage 3 colorectal cancer. Chemo has gone well so far. They're hoping to shrink the tumor before surgery in September. We're staying strong so far!

07/26/2011 - 3:49pm Agreed on hope

My dad was diagnosed about 6 or 7 years ago, so he has had access to most of the newest treatment and has had his ups and downs. It really does depend on how each patient responds to the medication and potential surgeries (like Deep Brain Stimulation, which he had a couple years back). Hope is a wonderful thing, though.

07/26/2011 - 3:31pm While I appreciate

the optimism with regards to the medical advancements, I assure you that it is still a big deal for many people, unfortunately. As someone who has seen my grandfather and father battle this disease, I wish Mr. de Carolis the best and hope that he responds well.

08/18/2010 - 1:28am Well said,


08/18/2010 - 12:44am A friend and I

were discussing this exact issue, and I suggested (this is going to sound much more pessimistic than it actually is) that there are striking similarities between the Lions and our Wolverines this year.  

Both have significant questions behind the front 4 (or 3) on defense, while the offenses should have significant firepower if everyone progresses at the expected rate.  I am hoping, in both cases, that the scheme and talent up front on defense can help to mitigate some of the depth, talent, and experience issues with the linebackers and secondary.  If they can get to the opposing QB, all of the sudden young CBs have a much better chance to stay with receivers and cover them adequately.  Plug gaps, and our LBs have much less ground to cover to make plays.  I know this is simplistic, but it is the sign of most good defenses, in both college and the NFL.

Obviously, both UM and Detroit will need to score some points to win.  On the offensive side, both teams have plenty of talent at the skill positions to do so.  I feel that our talent up front (at UM) is ready to shine and allow our backs to find some room, as well as provide our QBs with some time to find receivers.  If the Lions OL can gel, I feel that Stafford (also a 2nd year QB) and the Lions' backs/receivers can do the same.  

Again, this is obviously very simplistic, but I thought it was interesting.  It really boils down to my E-pinion that the trenches can help to cover for a lack of talent and experience in the back on defense, as well as accentuate good talent at the skill positions on offense.  Does anyone else see this parallel?

I love that guy!

seems to be key for this kid. We need some fresh blood quickly in the secondary, so it seems like it could potentially be a good fit. Have you had any contact with this kid, Tom?

They had a guy on ESPN recently who was selling his "fandom". I think he said he was gonna donate the money to a charity or something. However, an unscrupulous individual could make a decent chunk of change off of this type of scam.

11/18/2008 - 10:34pm Could simonsays potentially be the one

selling this bullshit? Hmmm...I wonder
