College hoop refs call traveling, carrying (palming), and sometimes get a charging call right.

If they would just adopt the and 1 continuation it would make the college game even better than it already is.  Even without the and 1 I still prefer college to pros by a Grand Canyon sized margin.

How does your "eye test" account for 48 passing TD's vs 23 passing TD's from Minshew.

If scoring points is the main objective, Hurts does that in spades...period.

Jalens Hurts had 40 passing TD's his first two years and 8 more this year in limited action.

Minshew had a total of 23 passing TD's before going to wazzu.

I fail to see how scoring stats don't matter.

What were your thoughts on Minshew heading to Wazzu from E. Carolina?

Minshew stats: https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/gardner-minshew-1.html

Hurts stats: https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/jalen-hurts-1.html

Jalen Hurts' stats compare favorably over Minshew's stats before his arrival in Pullman.

Not Michigan related but I pee'd in a urinal while Wade Boggs was peeing in the adjacent urinal at a Dearborn area gentleman's establishment.  Fortunately, we didn't have any wayward streams.

You're correct, he was a freashman in 87.  The crowd must have been overly hyped that he came to Michigan.  He defiantly had his maroon Romulus varsity jacket on and it was like one of the Beatles was in the house with the way everyone was cheering for him and high-fiving him.

01/03/2019 - 2:30am Fall of 87 I sat next to…

Fall of 87 I sat next to Matt and the rest of Jumbo Elliott's family during The Game.  As you might've guessed, the Elliott family is comprised of large individuals but they were very, very friendly.  Terry Mills walked down the isle and sat right behind me, wearing his Romulus varsity jacket and it was like a rock star was in the building.  Everyone knew who he was and they all were telling him to come to Michigan.  That was Earle Bruce's last game against us and the first UM/osu game that I attended.  We lost and I was completely bummed but sitting with the Elliott's and Terry Mills almost made up for it.

01/03/2019 - 1:33am My high school basketball…

My high school basketball team went to Bill Frieder's team camp the summer of 1987.

Mike Griffin refereed several of our games and was very friendly to all of us kids .  After playing a game at Crisler (one of probably 30 games we played around campus that week) Griffin and one of the student managers said they needed help moving some boxes and tables and they asked for a few volunteers.  The bleachers were full of a bunch of high school punks who thought they were too cool to help out so me and one of my teammates said we'd help.  As expected, the tough guys gave us shit about helping and just kicked back on the bleachers laughing at us while awaiting their next game.

So we follow Griffin and the manager into the concrete bowels of Crisler (you wouldn't believe how many storage closets and rooms lined the interior concourse) After unlocking several doors we end up just pushing around a bunch of those big canvas laundry type carts full of what we thought was miscellaneous boxes.  We moved carts around for 10 minutes tops and were happy to have gotten an inside look into the behind the scenes rooms that made up Crisler at the time.

Once we finished moving the carts around the student manager thanked us and informed us that as standard practice the team was getting new uniforms, warm-ups, shoes, practice gear and the like for the 87-88 season and that equipment was what we had been moving around in those boxes and carts.  As a thank you, the manager unlocked a big, blue trunk and said "you each can pick out one item". It was a storage trunk full of away game uniforms/warm-ups from the 86-87 season. My buddy grabbed a jersey (I cant remember the #) and I took a pair of shorts with the #55 written in marker on the waist band. #55 belonged to Mark Hughes.  When we got back to the bleachers with our bounty everyone played it off like they didn't care that we got hooked up but we knew they were pissed that they didn't volunteer to help out.

Griffin hung out with my team, playing HORSE and just shooting around inside Crisler after our games ended that day.  We shot around for maybe 30 minutes and Mike had to go which meant we had to go so we followed him out of the arena to his beat-down, green Volkswagen station wagon, complete with hippie stickers plastered all over the back and said our goodbyes. We had to walk back to the quads (I think we were staying in East Quad?) where Luke Skywalker and 2 Live Crew was blaring on a non-stop loop that entire week.  It was a great day and I was always thankful that my mother had taught me to not worry about peer pressure especially  when helping someone in need.

It's perfect for us. A small family place, good food. Everyone minds his business. Perfect. They've got an old-fashioned toilet. You know, the box and the chain thing. We might be able to tape the gun behind it.

As posted upthread, he's losing his starting qb and #1 wr to the nfl. Adding in difficulties with his AD makes now the perfect time, career wise, to head to Houston. Talent rich recruiting area, fresh start with an AD that wants you is too hard to turn down.

Once again, though, the players are the ones to suffer. The incoming recruits that just signed on a couple of weeks ago who thought they were going to be playing for him and his staff as well as the returning roster.

I'm fully on board with players being able to transfer without sitting out a year if their head coach leaves.

Wimbush ended up being not good and was replaced with Book.

I agree, those are great Christmas comidies but as someone mentioned above, give White Christmas a try.  The comedic timing and dancing of Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye are top notch. Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen are both great as well.  And Bing Crosby can sing Christmas songs with the best of them.

Congrats on the upcoming birth.  Maybe your newborn can share June 24th with Rich Eisen and myself.

I got my wife a new winter coat and leather gloves, a couple of soft flannels, compression socks (she works in an ER and is on her feet all day), her favorite bath soaps, several Mandalas geometric pattern coloring books (their supposedly stress relievers).  Assorted stocking knick knacks.

And I'm cooking Christmas dinner for the two of us so she can just kick back and relax all day.

She got me new tires for my Tahoe in September so I'm covered.
