I watched the NW dual. I don't know that much about the sport but I am learning as my son started wrestling this year as a HS freshman. He just wrestled varsity for the first time last week and was thrilled to win.

It is hard to work out with him now because he can go longer and harder than me with no problem. Their conditioning is awesome.

12/21/2016 - 6:40pm It gets better from here...


I graduated EE from UM about a quarter century ago. Just graduating with good grades was the hardest thing I think I've ever done. I've had a very successful career and my teams and I have done some great things but I swear it has been easier than just surviving some of those EECS classes.

All that pain and suffering seems to have made everything else I've had to do seem easy in comparison.

10/11/2016 - 7:23pm Same here

I am 48 and the only thing left that I care about is Michigan football but I no longer go crazy if we lose. I used to let losses ruin the weekend and that is frankly not worth it.

But I won't miss any of their games either.

I watched zero NFL this weekend and I still haven't got around to watching any playoff baseball. These are all things I would not have missed in my 20s and 30s.

08/26/2016 - 1:30pm Not a real big deal...

But I purchased Thanksgiving tickets one year way in advance and it turned out I had to try and watch in airports for the OSU game (Shawn Crable game). During a layover my family and I were in a bar watching the 4th quarter next to some random German tourists who were amused by my passion.

Finally it came time to board but the game wasn't over. I told my wife and kids to go on without me and I would figure out how to get back home later. This obviously isn't normally a big deal but it was a holiday. The Germans could not believe I was doing that.

I did manage to fly standby on another flight later that evening (albeit in a very bad mood).

07/20/2016 - 11:55pm Jocko Podcast


Listen to the Jocko podcast and if he can't motivate you then nobody can. But really it sounds like you are almost there on your own. As Jocko would say: "get after it"!

05/07/2016 - 11:58am Also was a paper boy

At 12 I delivered the Detroit News. I enjoyed cutting off service to whoever would not pay me. If you remember the movie Better off Dead, I loved the paper boy in that movie who would ride his bike chasing after someone saying "I want my two dollars"!

At 16 I worked at Kroger. The first day I had to clean rat crap from underneath the bread shelf. They forced me into the union too.

04/28/2016 - 11:33pm Quarter barrel

In 1986 the freshman hockey players snuck a quarter barrel into the stadium underneath a wheelchair. They sat behind me and we did keg stands during the game.

I remember it was minimally not too uncommon to see Stroh's 30 packs in the stadium.

Is also a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This occurred in his second life after chess.

I my last tournament it took me 1hr 45mins to defeat an adorable 6 year old girl. My next match took 3.5 hours as I lost to a 9 year old boy. I suck at BJJ, chess and football but I like them all.

02/15/2016 - 11:04pm I saw Scott sitting on the porch

Around those parts in the fall of 1986. Big ass dude.

12/31/2015 - 10:44am Recall PeeWee will be eligible

to play for them next year if he is healthy enough.

11/27/2015 - 3:22pm This looks legit...

From someone who has lived in Austin for the last 25 years, and lives 10 minutes from Stubbs and other great BBQ, I have to say this looks outstanding. I had Franklin's last week too! Alas, I am too lazy to actually go through this whole process. 

10/27/2015 - 4:09pm Well he already made millions
10/05/2015 - 1:03pm I don't know

But he did have a reception for a first down against Maryland.

10/03/2015 - 11:18pm Baker Mayfield

A kid who went to high school 45 minutes from UT and ended up walking on at Texas Tech and then Oklahoma will put up big numbers on them.

They've done a terrible job recruiting QBs.

10/03/2015 - 3:47pm 105
10/03/2015 - 3:41pm RJS

And he's played pretty decent in the time he's played this year.

09/22/2015 - 10:53pm 3rd floor!!!

09/11/2015 - 12:25pm Headed up to Michigan today from Texas

I am going with a friend who always wanted to see the Big House!

08/16/2015 - 4:38pm This list is a little weak...

Jennifer Aniston, Colt McCoy, Hardaway Jr, Danny DeVito and Herb Dean (this is a stretch) in airports.

Ricky Williams, Sandra Bullock, Jesse James in restaurants.

Dennis Rodman in a bar.

07/01/2015 - 1:54pm Uniforms

If you also don't care about minor uniform details, then we are a lot a like.

06/20/2015 - 3:26pm This is true...

Salt Lick is great for tourists but Franklin and La Barbecue have the better barbecue. If you don't want to stand in line or drive to Lockhart go to Black's in Austin or Stiles & Switch.

Either way BBQ north of the Mason-Dixon Line is no good and I think Central Texas is top dog. Of course I'm biased after 25 years in Austin.

05/15/2015 - 3:45pm I've also been in Ollantaytambo

My dad is Peruvian and it is one of the coolest countries on earth. Thanks for helping out.

04/25/2015 - 10:42pm Sumo

I like to watch the sumo bashos.

04/07/2015 - 1:38pm I was also a News paperboy

I delivered from 1980-1982. Bummer. I still want my two dollars!

01/28/2015 - 11:41pm Girls from Williams house

came to serenade us at Adams house and the hockey players on the 4th floor greeted them by throwing beer bottles at them. They had the most vandalized hall in the dorm system that year.

Another story about them is that they snuck a quarter barrel into Michigan Stadium. They did it by hiding it under the seat of a guy (not actually handicapped) in a wheelchair. We did keg stands during the game.

Oh they also stripped a Miami (YTM) fan of literally all his clothes as he cheered in the student section. His underwear was in shreds.

Sorry for the non dorm stories. I got carried away.

01/28/2015 - 11:31pm Mike Gillette

was the asshole in the snowball fight my year.

Also I beat Rumeal Robinson in nerf hoop around the world. He said I had a better touch than him. Cool story bro.

We also "snuck" a keg we stole from a frat party into West Quad. To "disguise" it we put a Twister mat over it and when the RA confronted us we simply said we were going to play twister giving him weak plausible deniability. We carried that keg a long freaking way.

01/09/2015 - 11:41pm My fraternity got food from him too.

It sucked.

01/09/2015 - 11:25pm Turf change

It was because the turf changed from artificial to grass.

12/31/2014 - 9:59am Duke masters degree

would also be icing on the cake.

12/19/2014 - 12:15am It was 1986

I was sleeping in my West Quad dorm room when I was awaken by someone at about 3am loudly playing drums. Words were exchanged between the West Quaders and said drummer. Threats were exchanged but all ended peacefully. I remember thinking: "I could drink with that dude.". Come home Jim and drum all you want.

04/24/2014 - 7:24pm Renewed


26 or 27 years




02/23/2014 - 11:13pm Chavez hater here

I lived there in 2008. What a disaster. They've totally bankrupted the country in the most corrupt manner possible. The government is reprehensible.

01/08/2014 - 11:35pm Season tickets

I guess I may as well renew for a 28th straight year.

12/09/2013 - 9:45pm Rocket scientist

He can't keep driving at 5mph. The kid doesn't have to move. Have you heard of Tiananmen Square?

11/30/2013 - 10:10am I think it depends whether

Someone like Hecklinski can call a game. Someone has to OC the bowl.

11/17/2013 - 1:30am Ferrigno Appreciation Thread

We need one. He had the kicking team on the field in time.

11/10/2013 - 5:55pm The o-line was the worst the last 2 weeks...

So I hope they go back to a previous lineup and scrap the Bosch-Magnuson experiment.

11/02/2013 - 7:27pm That's kind of what the blog is about.

You know, to discuss football games.

11/02/2013 - 6:53pm They weren't on the field much longer

than MSU. That is no excuse. 29 points to a crap offense.

11/02/2013 - 6:08pm Nothing Borges can do

When Funk is so damn bad.

10/30/2013 - 9:19am If that's not funny

then nothing is.

10/19/2013 - 9:33pm Don't Worry

Blue in Dallas doesn't give out official game balls.

10/14/2013 - 7:52pm He looks like Art Shell on the sideline

Anyone who remembers Art will recall him walking the sideline with absolutely no clue what was going on.

10/07/2013 - 1:44pm I don't know that it is accurate

to suggest they are rushing him back if he has already been cleared.

09/21/2013 - 10:40pm Not his fault that

Avery can't cover anyone either

09/21/2013 - 10:24pm Why do the coaches

seem to believe the second team can't so better than this train wreck?

09/21/2013 - 10:05pm I did last week

He is evidently bad at his job. And I doubt Mallory too.

09/19/2013 - 11:43pm Mich vs Miami (YTM) 87

A Miami fan was in the student section being obnoxious. The hockey team demanded that others 'pass him up' to them where he basically was forcibly surfed up the section till the hockey players got him. They literally ripped every stitch of clothes off him though didn't hurt him. Someone had mercy and tossed him a Michigan t-shirt. Then he left but later returned after having bought a pair of Michigan boxer shorts. When he came back he waved and everyone cheered him. Shitty end to the game though.

The hockey players also snuck a quarter barrel into the stadium where we did keg stands. The snuck it underneath a wheelchair. Brilliant.

Sorry... Phone post..

09/14/2013 - 3:50pm No substitutions

Didn't really make sense to me not to try out guys like Bryant and Taco. They kept playing the same guys that weren't getting anything done.

Props to Fitz, Blake, JR3, Lewan and a few others that played hard all game.
