11/24/2015 - 3:28pm I've had one for maybe 6-7

I've had one for maybe 6-7 years, and the thing I've disliked about it the most is that it says (ohio) under the state outline. Now -- from reading this post -- I realize they sell shirts without the ohio, which in my mind makes the shirt a lot funnier. They either get it or don't. Don't really care honestly if it offends people. It's all in good fun, and if they can't accept that -- they should spend more time in ohio.

Read my post again.  I said now that the "real" Rudock has shown us what's possible under Harbaugh, I'm excited for that caliber of play for the next 3-4 years.  

Unless you know how to keep Rudock as a 6th year graduate transfer?

11/16/2015 - 8:50am No one knows...

...but we can agree that Harbaugh approached the QB situation as a "do over" when he got here.  I don't think we can discount the possibility that Peters, if as advertised, could be the anointed one out of the gate.

Andrew Luck redshirted his first season, and then took over for the older, more established Pritchard.  Maybe something like this?

11/16/2015 - 8:41am NO, unless you ask the wife.

10/28/2015 - 9:53am I'm not kidding...

I'm not kidding, but I held a staff meeting at 9am where the entire office was congregated, and I walked in holding the clipboard.  I stood up there not saying anything for a moment, and then yelled -- "Whose got it better than us!!!!"

They didn't know how to respond.  And now they think I have a screw loose.  But they'll know how to respond next time....

10/28/2015 - 9:24am Totally agree

I actually had the opportunity to purchase the New Era "thin" M hat, but opted to wait til next year when all the Nike gear comes in.  I already have a crap ton of Adidas gear I'm going to get rid of because of its assocation to sucking.

So, went with what I had.  No cleats btw.  That woulda been a good touch, though.

10/18/2015 - 1:50pm Had a 7:30pm flight to Dallas

Had a 7:30pm flight to Dallas (from DTW). Decided the best course of action for me was to get to the airport at 3:00 so I could be snug in the Delta lounge at kickoff. Game on!

To my astonishment, the lounge was packed with sparty fans by 5:1. Every good play for them was met with wild applause and whistling, while the good guys had a smattering of clapping -- mostly by elderly fans, oddly enough. I ended up in a seat right next to the HDTV sitting with four of the loudest sparty dudes, who themselves were traveling to Germany for some automotive conference. I asked them when their flight was. They said 7:50. They were pressing it just like I was!

Watched the whole game like this; enduring these idiots hooting and hollering, listening to them argue every call and non-call by these horrible officials. Finally, the 4th down play where we stopped them (before the end) comes, and I'm late for my flight. I need to run -- but I stay just to see Connor Cook miss the pass. I grab my bag. Point at the loudest of the dudes, who was scowling at me, and said --- "Great game. Have a good flight!" to which replied, "Whatever, dude.."

RAN to my gate which by now I imagined the door slowly closing before I got there. I run up to the gate agent, scan my phone, only then to hear the entire airport ERUPT in a roar, followed a moment later by my phone blowing up. Turned around as I was entering the jetway to see the sparty guys running past -- one of them catching my eye, and shouting "There he is -- HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!"

Door closed on the plane a moment later. I asked the flight attendant for vodka.

09/11/2015 - 4:56pm Also...

You have the advent of surface "specialists" who design their game around perfecting one particular surface.  This is particularly true of clay court Europeans, but now you see grass specialists, as well.

It's difficult, these days, to master all three surfaces, and be the best in the world at a given moment.  Although raquet technology has closed some of the gap in the surfaces, since now you can just power yourself through tournaments with much less finesse than years past.

09/11/2015 - 3:45pm Serena appeared to give up

I don't know if she's fatigued (mentally or physically) but it looked like she had given up the final 4-5 games of the third set.  Not running for balls.  Not setting her feet.  Double fault, etc.

But credit to Vinci, who has a beautiful game.  That slice backand is menacing.

09/10/2015 - 4:32pm Heard the rumor...

It's not good :-(   

Glad we have Harbaugh, though.  He's building this program with integrity.

09/09/2015 - 8:31am I thought the same thing.

I thought the same thing.  But they do have a track record of breaking correct news.  We shall see....

09/09/2015 - 8:19am I equate Ausmus to Hoke.

I equate Ausmus to Hoke.  Nice guy with a great story who we all WANTED to win.  But in the end, he lacked the gamesmanship to make it happen -- at least with this lineup.  If this report is true, I hope Ausmus lands in a good place and can restart his managerial career.

09/09/2015 - 7:55am Just gonna use this opportunity...

Just gonna use this opportunity to bitch about how the advent of raquet technology has destroyed the entire serve/volley element of the game.  Players hit the ball so hard now, there's no ability to get to the net to support that part of the game.  And so -- it just becomes a game of smashing serves, and on the rare occasion a rally develops, people end up passing each other baseline to baseline.  It's ridiculous -- especially on the men's side.

They need to standardize raquet technology, and dial it back a few versions.

Just my $.02

It'll be interesting to see what happens to Ashley Madison now that this bomb has hit. Does it continue as a going concern? How does it respond from a pure marketing standpoint, since I'm assuming data protection stood as a core value?

Future customers would want to be instructed, by the site itself, on spoofing and alias creation techniques?

That's a fair point.  And I know Wisconsin has actually upped ther academic standing considerably over the last 20 years.  But still.

I've been to Champaign a fair bit, and I'll agree that Kam's is Krazy.  But Illinois is actually a pretty decent school.  It's hard to be labeled a party school when you have actual academic merit.  Now Arizona State on the other hand....  :-)

07/28/2015 - 2:24pm Actually...

My title asks if it's a "dying" business model -- not dead.  And if you actually read my post, you'd know I asked if I was the only one who felt this way (last paragraph).

Maybe you should read things before commenting on them?

07/27/2015 - 3:09pm Put some thought in before replying...

Ridiculous reply.

Of course Michigan had an increase in season tickets.  We're coming back from the lowest ticket levels in 40 years, with a losing record and ineffective leadership.  And now we get to show off our new, shiny Harbaugh.  Really?  Season tickets increased?  Ya don't say.

My point stands that given the choice between purchasing season ticket packages and engaging the secondary ticket market, the StubHub mobile app model has made the decision to NOT buy tickets easier.  My post simply inquired if I was the only one swayed in that same manner.

Get over yourself.  And put some thought in before replying.

LOL.  Good one.  I guess I should have used "secondary market" a little more than referencing ub-stay ub-hay, huh?  

Point well taken :-)
