Fuck me running. This question AGAIN?!? Did we skip the last 11 games and move right to the offseason?

Ditto on the brining - poultry and pork chops benefit from the extra moisture before smoking or roasting.

You’d think Coach H would worry about the OL’s BP with that much NaCl.

You and your kinkiness. It never ends, does it?

Oh, I don’t know. Aren’t the Lions great fun to watch? Their games are kind of like those Jackass movies, where each new stunt elevates dong punches to a gladiator sport.

08/24/2018 - 8:42am I can’t help but agree with…

I can’t help but agree with the sentiment expressed by some here that we are only TRULY angry at the lack of shame and any semblance of true accountability because this is about Ohio State and Urban Meyer. The last couple of weeks have seen the publication of probably no fewer than 50 threads on this topic. The Nassar scandal probably had as many or more. Penn State - possibly hundreds. And we could, no doubt, recite from memory the incident involving the death of a student involving Brian Kelly.

But Baylor and Ole Miss had far less than half the interest or coverage here. And I would be willing to bet a round of drinks that most of us could not recall the specifics of what happened in those two programs without help from Google. Even the Maryland case involving Durkin is barely registering a mention here by comparison to OSU, MSU, and PSU. 

I’m as guilty of the hypocrisy that is begotten by tribalism as anyone. And I might be more angry with myself for my own lack of indignation were it not for the fact that I’m totally numb to it as a result of the social media and 24/7 news cycle barrages that each provide more examples every single fucking day.

Angelina Jolie? Is that you?

I am so sorry, Wendy. This is extremely difficult, I know. 

My $0.02....

Ask yourself why you want to be there; for his sake, or yours? Only you know the answer; in my experience, guilt and regret are powerful motivation. Those should not be the deciding factors.

Perhaps ask him what he would like you to do to on his behalf to honor your years of friendship. Your own actions in his name will keep his memory alive for you and others, and be a positive entry on Life’s ledger. A friend of mine started a foundation in her late brother’s memory after he was killed in Iraq. You don’t have to do something that profound, but even a little thing can make a big difference for both of you, and it will help you better deal with your sense of loss.

^This.

The research done by, among others, Valter Longo at USC (YTUSC), suggests that a fasting mimicking diet may be protective for certain types of cancers. I haven’t see anything to suggest (beyond pure, Internet quackery) that they are curative.

08/16/2018 - 11:26am "He has no idea what he's…

"He has no idea what he's talking (sic) as it pertains to automotive manufacturing."

That's also not his job. Rather, it is to set a direction for the company and to be accountable for the outcome.

As I recall, Alan Mulally didn't know about automotive manufacturing, either. He was President of Boeing Commercial Airplanes before becoming CEO at Ford. He did, (and Hackett does) understand complex assembly, operations, supply chain, design, marketing, sales, finance, etc. Each is highly transferable across industries.

Your "you don't know automotive" attitude is exactly what I have observed in many with whom I've worked over the years in the industry. It's a close relative of "Not Invented Here," and it leads to stagnation and group-think. Which may also, come to think of it, explain Ford's putrid share price performance over the past several decades.

I can ... But then my wife will complain that she can't just use the same remote blah, blah, blah.... In other words, I can listen to my wife complain, or grit my teeth and use Comcast.

In what other human circumstance would the cable company be considered "the path of least resistance?"

08/10/2018 - 1:18pm There is only one reason I…

There is only one reason I still have Comcast, and that's because my wife will not live without the CBC and the shows she watches on that network out of Canada. I would love to ditch cable, but haven't found a workable solution to the CBC access. Most content will not stream across the border, and VPNs are not always accessible.

Not just Zachs named "Boren." Those named "Smith" are pretty much scumbags, too.

Something tells me this was planned, and therefore partially staged, by both sides.

Seriously, though ... Who cares? CWebb was one of the best players to ever wear Maize & Blue. Time to bury the hatchet.

Wasn't so long ago, after all, that Harbaugh was also persona non grata in these parts for some ill-considered comments about U-M.

I can't post them as an embedded media link, either. I've had to save the photo I want to my computer, then upload the image file to the site. It's not as efficient, but it works.

We have sunshine for about the next hour here in Southeast Michigan, so for now...

I also work for a company that is similarly concerned about public exposure. However, the guidance we received from Corporate Counsel was very different. We were told that attorney-client privilege would not likely hold up under discovery if anyone other than legal counsel was on the email (meaning, no cc: to Legal just to cover your ass - it won't hold water). Context (and content) is important, but we were told not to use it as a "Get Out Of Jail Free" card, literally or figuratively.

However, more interesting to me is that this list tells us what we've known for a while in this state: there is some DAMN GOOD beer brewed here, and it's among the best in the country.

06/19/2018 - 4:00pm That this letter was sent is…

That this letter was sent is not at all surprising. However, there is almost no chance that it moves the BoT to act. I mean, if they haven't acted in spite of all of the things Engler has already said and done himself, why would anyone believe that they'll act because of what someone else (even the sister survivors) have to say about him?

06/17/2018 - 9:58pm Okay, Boss. I have no…

Okay, Boss. I have no opinion on this, in case anyone asks.

My favorite Bronson movie is Once Upon A Time In The West. Of course, it also has Jason Robards, Henry Fonda and (hubba hubba!) Claudia Cardinale. The whole picture is really well done.

"A history of dismissive attitudes towards sexual assault..."

Absolutely true; and yet, even if I were to allow for "the world has changed since he was governor," or "maybe he's grown in the last 20 years," that would have somehow attempted to his former statements and actions into the cultural or societal context of the '80s and '90s, this is another level of fuckheadery. That's what I find so surprising. 

06/15/2018 - 12:33pm "EVERYONE knew Engler would…

"EVERYONE knew Engler would be a disaster...."

I'm not sure anyone expected it to be quite THIS bad. The guy is a train wreck and a POS.

Is it feeling like the off-season to anyone else, or just to me?

Last year would have (should have?) seen a lot of broken glass lying around.

Hahahahahahaha....!

POSBANGs are the least of my problems right now. I've got to get used to the new style of the comments section. It's hard to figure out who responded to whom. 

06/04/2018 - 8:29am Since you asked

What we right: he stopped wearing those "Woody Hayes" glasses.

What went wrong: he started wearing them in the first place.

What's next? Lasik.

05/25/2018 - 9:35am I'll be spending the MGoWeekend recovering from bronchitis

I've also got my son's graduation open house coming up in a week, so I'll be doing a lot of work to get ready. 

I'm definitely going to need a bang with this is all said and done.

That's two Brazilian women who are going to want him dead one week each month. Odds for his longevity are not in his favor. 

05/23/2018 - 8:12am This post is bad

And you should feel bad.

05/22/2018 - 8:14am Ditto

I’d been suffering from constipation as a result of my steady diet of Hungry Man dinners and Natty Light. After Eleven Warriors put some science behind proper cooler pooping techniques, I stopped busting blood vessels in my face and started busting out some healthy nug-nugs.
