I've had two. 2008 Forester and a 2007 Legacy.

Both great cars. Wonderful in the snow. The Forester was purchased new and we never had problems with it. We just out grew it. Needed something bigger (3rd row) and some towing capacity.

The legacy had the head gasket replaced around 90k miles. The timing belt went around 120k. Other than that, it was a great car that was fun to drive.

I'll be looking at getting a Crosstrek for my daughter when she turns 16.

Proactive. Change it around 90K would be my recommendation

01/17/2019 - 12:25pm yes. The timing belt went on…

yes. The timing belt went on my '07 Legacy at around 120k miles. Engine was destroyed.

Better than Penn State, Indiana and either Maryland or Rutgers.

It's still depth, and next year they will be sophomores. I agree it's not ideal, but its' still much better shape than it was heading into the 2017 season in which Nolan started.

Can "Get over yourself and play some defense" be the new MGoShirt?

01/15/2019 - 10:01am Best of luck to you, Nolan.

Best of luck to you, Nolan.

If nothng else, it speaks to how far the OL depth has come. At one point he was a starter. Now he's the fifth best option, despite being 2 years older. 

01/10/2019 - 4:07pm It's already lasted longer.

let's hope.

I find this ironic coming from a guy with a Lloyd Carr avatar.

01/09/2019 - 2:13pm That's unexpected. The 2016…

That's unexpected. The 2016 offense felt like it had more flow to it. The 2018 offense, felt clunky and disjointed.

I'm astonished that the numbers are nearly identical.

01/08/2019 - 2:12pm Trey Burke or Chris Webber.

Trey Burke or Chris Webber.

Trey is a slight down grade in man defense from X, but a huge upgrade in offense. 

Webber was also a great passer. Lose little to nothing on defense, but what is the opposing team going to do? He can take anyone one-on-one. Any double team and he's hitting the open guy. Teams want to play us zone? Put Chris in the middle. Just don't let him call time-outs. 

01/08/2019 - 1:05pm If you take the rivalry…

If you take the rivalry/emotion part out the OSU/MSU parting and Wisc/PSU paring is quite balanced.

You might be surprised to find out that the program has 10 wins in 3 of the last 4 seasons. You might also be surprised to find out that non-conference wins and losses has no impact on winning a conference.

Also, the basketball team is 15-0. That Brandon Johns looks pretty good, doesn't he?

His top-end might not be there, but he has a quick first step and can make guys miss in space.

Maybe i'm just getting older and just don't care anymore. I really haven't had much interest in watching any of the bowl games the last few years. Haven't watched much football in general other than Michigan games. 

My recommendation would be to either eliminate the bowls and go to a playoff format similar to FCS/Div II, or end the playoff, just have the bowl games and pick a mythical champion.

My vote would be for the latter.

Harbaugh going to blame this one only the S&C coach or his shit offense?

Second one is better. There's more action.

I used to have season tickets for the Lions. I'll put MNF or SNF on for a half-hour or so as I doze off on the couch.

The only time I'll watch an NFL game start to finish is a playoff game.

12/19/2018 - 10:15am Thank you!

Thank you!

The players read this.

NFL players obsess over their madden stats. They read sports blogs.

In 3 seasons he had 6 career catches.

2017 TE receptions:

McKeon 31

Gentry 17

Wheatley 3

If he stayed, he would have been behind Eubanks.

My guess for Milton would be the preservation of his red-shirt.

At the time of the Rutgers game, we had a reasonable chance of playing in the B1G title game, and 2 games in the playoffs.

Are you trying to spin guys getting drafted to the NFL as a bad thing?

12/17/2018 - 2:50pm He won't start next year at…

He won't start next year at another program. His only shot of going to the NFL after 3 seasons of college football is by staying here.

So yes, some other issues are going on. Which you may be aware of. Which is why you aren't surprised.

Also, Blake Countess grad transferred, so he didn't have to sit out. It was also after a coaching change, so his status as a starter was uncertain.

 

12/17/2018 - 2:41pm Wheatley got passed up by…

Wheatley got passed up by younger guys. He wasn't getting snaps. He should have moved to OT.

12/17/2018 - 2:37pm That's what I don't get. He…

That's what I don't get. He was playing until he got hurt. He wasn't getting passed up by anyone. Now he has to sit a year to to a new team?

Why not play next year, then grad transfer after 3 seasons or just go pro?

I'm calling off field shenanigans.

12/17/2018 - 2:31pm You mean most surprising,…

You mean most surprising, right? Who would be more surprising? Solomon was a regular contributor at a position that is losing both starters. He was set to be a starter for 1 or 2 years.

12/17/2018 - 2:28pm Violation of team rules?…

Violation of team rules? Family issue?

It's not due to playing time. Pretty much guaranteed to be a starter next fall.

Players generally seem to like Brown and Mattison, so I don't think it would be something the coaches did.

We play the conference games early because no one wants to host a conference game from middle to late December because the students are away on break.

I hear that Northwestern dedicates practice time every week for prepping for the Michigan game. That's why they lost by 19 to Fresno. They spend all that practice time on zone defense, but only use it for the Michigan games.
