Damn! I'm trying to get my 10k time under 40...this is just wow

05/22/2018 - 8:53am Nice story. My first dance

Nice story. My first dance with my wife was "you're my best friend"

04/26/2018 - 12:53pm Couldn't agree more. They

Couldn't agree more. They also have the basis for a larger car based on the Continental that, to my knowledge, they'll still produce. 

Also, does this mean they're out of fleet (police) entirely except for the Explorer?!? They sell thousands of cars for this purpose....wow

03/26/2018 - 9:24am absolutely. This is the 1st

absolutely. This is the 1st time the team has been objectively good since elevation to varsity status

So (and I suspect this documentary may touch on this) he has another family who is close to him in addition to his mother. She obviously is very involved thinking back to the questionaire she gave to prospective schools.

But (unless the dude I ran into at grocery store wearing Michigan gear is completely lying and had photoshopped pics of his family with RG) there's another family who has been quite involved in his life too. So that may help IRT positive male and family role models

Hey....how YOU doing?

03/05/2018 - 3:40pm I don't believe that is

I don't believe that is accurate. Going from memory of news article so I could be wrong, but echo (an ultrasound of the heart) evaluated the hypertrophy and also noted that the amount of blood expelled from the part of the heart that supplies the body (left ventricle) was not as efficient as a normal heart.

ECHOcardiogram measures the plumbing, ELECTROcardiogram (EKG) measures the electricity-the rhythm of the heart.

02/28/2018 - 10:31am I'd further your point. It'd

I'd further your point. It'd be nice if, at least in basketball (football is always going to be a harder fix), if your first group would be out NCAA. If you are good enough to be pro, want to be pro, go play in a proper minor league like you can do in baseball and hockey. If you want to go to college, commit to it. It doesn't proclude you from playing professionally later. This option will appeal mostly to your middle group-possible pros with development.

I don't reasonable see why the model for baseball and hockey couldn't also work for basketball. the NCAA should not be a (or the really) de facto minor league.

Admitedly, this arguement may not work/apply for football, but fixing one of them would be an huge step

That was my freshman year. I expected continued resutls like that. 15 years later....still waiting

02/21/2018 - 1:39pm At the end of season football

At the end of season football bust, he had everyone there hold hands while Josh Groban "you raise me up" played (& he teared up)

Any little remaining hold he had on the program was lost

Looks like my 3 year old will be sharing his name with many younger boys. We chose an "unusual" one as my wife was always one of 3 or so with her name in school. Not unusual much longer...

01/23/2018 - 11:36am yeah I'm not sure I want all

yeah I'm not sure I want all electric. Hybrid sounds more interesting. You have traditional hybrid or plug in (PHEV)?

01/23/2018 - 11:19am So on the talk about anything

So on the talk about anything mode: I just got a car a year ago. It is a traditional ICE family sedan. I don't put a lot of miles so will probably/hopefully have for at least 7-8 years. In that time, I suspect a strong move towards further electricfication.

Any hybrid owners? Any plug in owners? I think I'd be interested in plug in hybrid, as my commute is >10 miles one way and would likely be able to run electric only, BUT would like the gas back up to avoid the worry of being stranded from a drained battery.

I think I'll be similar to many customers in the US, reluctant to go full electric at first, so curious where y'all think this will head here. Some car makes (Volvo, Infiniti) are going full electric quickly, but other markets like China and European cities are demanding that. We certainly aren't, but automakers will have these electric cars so will of course be trying to sell.

What say you?

01/18/2018 - 4:56pm eh I remember Brady Hoke did

eh I remember Brady Hoke did a mea culpa for thinking he could build on the DL success from the 1997 season and blaming himself for the start of the '98 season (specifically the loss to Syracuse). He didn't appreciate that he needed to (re)emphasize the fundamentals and learned from that. This could be that, a recognition of what he needs to do better. I have no problem with that.

Teske will be a Junior next year. 

Wagner would be a Senior if he stays (admittedly unlikely). But as noted above, his replacement would be a Junior

Holy crap is this thread full of drek and trolls.

I know it's extreme, but could we instuite a 1 month moratorium on any new member posting (anyone who joined after "The Game"). The exception is the new member who isn't an insufferable troll

Until then, don't hold your breath...

He was the ST coach for a longer period. Andy Reid (HC at the time) changed his duties to better position him for a HC job going forward.

This. While I do NOT think it is as good as its predecessors, it is a good movie in its own right. GF3 biggest problem is the name. People expected it to be one of the greatest movies of all time, which the first 2 are, and it just couldn't live up to that

12/04/2017 - 11:56am I certainly get the joking as

I certainly get the joking as the questions were getting rediculous, but I have a question IRT medical redshirt:

if it's documented that he is healthy enough to practice with the team and dress, is he still "medically ineligble to play". Asked another way, if there is an injury but some games not played are coaches decision, is he still eligible? Seems that way by Harbaugh's responses, just seems interesting to me as we've had discussion regarding other players in the past proof of practicing as it relates to medical reshirts

I agree, they spend A LOT more for the Grand Tour (car show with the former Top Gear guys)

11/28/2017 - 12:50pm All great info, and I'd add

All great info, and I'd add that Amazon offers Prime discounted at times, usually around this time of year. If you're someone like myself with 2 small kids and love the convinience of stuff shipped free to you including big crap (diapers and whatnot), it's well worth it.

11/27/2017 - 3:42pm I agree with your general

I agree with your general point, but here's an (admitedly unlikely) scenario where I see U-M in CF playoff after loss in The Game:

OSU loses to say PSU & MSU (or has another Iowa like oopsy)

We win every other game (or even lose close to ND and many other teams lose)

Then we still go to B1G championship, win, and with 12 (or less likely 11) wins get into the playoff. 

I agree with general point though, we do NOT need to be 13-0 to go to the playoff

I could have sworn Vilian played. PSU maybe? Or am I mistaking him with Paye?

There's something to being a conference champion. 

Also, I'd argue the win over OU is significantly bigger than anything ND did

11/20/2017 - 2:00pm Good post
Carr's biggest

Good post

Carr's biggest failure, IMO, was his lack of successor. This cursed us to the Rich Rod years. Right or wrong, he was clearly the block of Les Miles. I know the arguement against him, but no was we go 3-9 in 2008 with LM (& other subsequent awfulness).

11/18/2017 - 10:05am Yeah no wonder game day is

Yeah no wonder game day is with us. Woof today is bad.

Remember all, THIS used to be the big day for the rivalry games, only recently did that get pushed after thanksgiving

Why is the citrus bowl awful? Never been so just curious why you'd say that

11/08/2017 - 2:49pm careful, we're working

careful, we're working towards the scenario you laid out. If (a big IF I know), Georgia and Alabama go into SEC title undefeated you think loser gets kicked out of playoff? I don't know...

That's a special type of crazy...btw its bascially Vegas instead of Oakland at this point no?

Yeah as I noted below I went from a golf to a 4 door sedan. Love my car, but loved the cargo convenience and may look in that direction for my next. Arteon also looks nice too. Hard to justify (for me) 4 door 4 series or A5 given the upcharge over 3 series/A4
