10/14/2018 - 3:16pm Student section was pretty…

Student section was pretty packed and was very high energy all night. Thought the whole crowd was great last night! How it should be every game with the team playing at such a high level. We need to cheer this team all the way to a playoff berth.

05/22/2015 - 3:39pm I second Tobacco Road

Tobacco Road is beautiful. I don't know if I'd put it in my top 5, but it's close. Pinehurst #2 is something else. I wish I wasn't so young when I played it. I was only like 12 so I don't think I appreciated it as much as I should have. Definitely want to head back down to that area and play those courses again. 

05/19/2015 - 3:23pm You're such a douchebag

You're such a douchebag. 

05/19/2015 - 3:15pm Halo theme song

I can't stop humming the tune that starts at 39 seconds whenever I start playing Halo. 

Other songs that get stuck in my head are most Taylor Swift songs and Drunk in Love by Beyonce. No shame. 

05/14/2015 - 11:51am If you would have had Nike cleats

You could have scored 3 goals in under 2 minutes if you would have had Nike cleats. 

05/14/2015 - 10:12am I have a couple

I have a couple of good ones. My favorite has to be from back in little league. It was the championship game, down 1, bases loaded, bottom of the 7th, 2 outs, and full count. I had an uncle who had never made it to one of my games show up, and I told him from the on deck circle that if I got up to the plate I was hitting one out. I made up my mind that I wasn't going to take a walk once the count was 3-2 unless the pitch was unhittable. Got a pitch that was right across the letters on my jersey, and hit a bomb to straight away center field. Walk off grand slam to win the championship. My dad was the coach too so that was awesome to share with him. He was happier than I was. 

Honorable mention for me was throwing a no hitter in my first start on Varsity baseball as a sophomore. It was all down hill from there though because I threw out my arm that season from being pitched so much. I was worse as a junior, and even more worse as a senior. My arm feels like it wants to fall off anytime I throw a baseball now. Lastly, it was the league championship at our home course my senior year for Varsity golf. I shot a 40 on my opening 9 (worst I had ever shot on that 9), and came back and shot a 30 on the back 9 by going 6 under in the last 5 holes. Birdied 14, 15, 16, and 17 and eagled 18. Won the tournament by 2!

05/11/2015 - 11:41am Golf is mine as well

My dad had a golf club in my hand the day I could walk. I play every day possible. Going through high school when I had all of the time in the world with no worries, I was a scratch golfer. Then college came along and my practice time went down considerably and my handicap got up to about 8. This is my first summer really getting back to it and practicing hard. I plan on getting my handicap back under 5 by the end of the summer. But we'll see. Beer is far too enjoyable most of the time to make it possible for me to shoot that low. Priorities 

05/11/2015 - 11:11am He hit a ball with a shift on

Victor slapped the ball to the left side to beat the shift. If Davis is on second, KC can't play the shift since they need someone at home on 3rd in case Davis steals. It's impossible to know if Victor would have actually got a hit in that at bat since it would have been a totally different scenario. 

05/08/2015 - 8:03pm Sorry!

Sorry! haha I'm jumping all over this chance to get back to Ann Arbor. 

05/08/2015 - 11:30am Just accepted a job offer in AA!!

Moved to Omaha, NE for a job after graduation last year, and got an offer this week that  I couldn't refuse for a job that I applied to last Spring at a company in AA. Signed my offer this week, and handed my boss my resignation letter this morning. 

Pulling my best HARBAUGH impression! I'm coming hoMe!!

 

05/07/2015 - 5:29pm I enjoyed the grind for a while.

I will not admit how many hours of gameplay me and my friends put into that game, but it was more than a lot. When you get to the point where you have every exotic, all of the raid materials, and everything maxed out with hundreds of materials and nothing left to spend them on, there's nothing more to grind to enjoy. Yes, I had a problem haha

05/07/2015 - 4:55pm Xbox player

I'm on Xbox. But I played destiny a lot for quite a few months, have a maxed out character of each type, and then realized you do the same damn thing over and over again and it's not even fun. Also they aren't coming out with a new raid in the House of Wolves expansion that they scammed everyone into buying along with the first expansion. I will probably never play that game again. It feels more like a chore than fun when I play it. Borderlands, and Halo Masterchief Collection is where it's at for me right now. 

If you get a good group to raid with, they can be fun to play for a little while. But once you get all of the raid gear and raid weapons, there's really nothing else to play for in the game and all of the fun disappears. That's what happened for me atleast. But killing Atheon and Crota for the first times was pretty thrilling. Good luck finding some fun people to play with. 

05/06/2015 - 10:07am Chain of Lakes in Branch County MI

Used to spend most of my time on Marble Lake. But it was always nice to take the pontoon from one end to the other and back. Especially doing it late at night with a boat full of booze and some good friends. 

We no longer boat there though. Last year we docked the boat at Wamplers Lake. Closer to home. 

05/03/2015 - 1:36am Also wanted to say thank you

Watched the whole fight on this stream. Best one I came across by far. +1 to you 

05/01/2015 - 1:45pm The Masters

The Masters is my choice. 

05/01/2015 - 9:59am Money

I just don't see Money losing this fight. He'll win in a unanimous decision. 

04/30/2015 - 2:36pm Omaha

I'm also in Omaha. 

04/30/2015 - 11:47am Going to have to go now

I drive by a Smashburger everyday but I have never stopped in to give it a try. Looks like I'm going to have to grab it for dinner tonight if you put it above Five Guys and In-N-Out. As far as what's better between those 2, they're both delicious to me. Might have the give the edge to In-N-Out. It's just a simple and delicious burger for a smaller price than Five Guys. 

04/29/2015 - 5:21pm Another wolverine in Omaha!

Since I moved here, I've only seen 2 people wearing a Michigan shirt.

I never used to mind Nebraska fans growing up in Michigan... then I moved here... We need more representation in these parts. The amount of crazy husker fans is too much to handle at times.

04/28/2015 - 1:12pm Probably game 7, but I'm going to KC

I would have to say game 7, but unfortunately I can't pull that off. I will be in KC this weekend though for a game or 2. Although, it would be really hard to pass up a trip to Vegas. Vegas is crazy enough on a normal weekend, I can't imagine how much fun it would be this weekend. If I had to rank them, it'd be as follows: 

  1. Game 7 in Tampa
  2. Vegas
  3. Tigers in KC
  4. Kentucky Derby
  5. NFL Draft (How is this even in the same convo as the first 4? You would have to pay me to go to the NFL Draft)
04/28/2015 - 12:56pm Good

But I just did a quick scroll through all of the states and there are only 30 bdubs across the country playing the fight. So odds are bdubs won't be a good option. All I did was google search bars playing the fight in my city and I found a couple local places playing it and that was it. Doesn't look like many bars are willing to pay the price to carry the fight. 

04/28/2015 - 12:43pm Doesn't look like many bdubs have it

Click on that link and you can pick a state and it gives you bdubs that are playing it. Only the Grand Rapids and East Lansing locations are playing it in Michigan. 

04/28/2015 - 12:38pm Go to a bar if you can

That's what I'm going to do. There's a couple of bars downtown where I live that are showing the fight. $20 cover charge. I thought that seemed steep, but it beats paying $100. This might be the last big fight you get to watch in boxing for a long time. 

But if you have to stay home, I wouldn't spend $100. I would just stream it. The quality won't be great, but that wouldn't be a big deal knowing I saved $100 to see the same thing just in a lower quality video. 

03/27/2015 - 9:46am I'm still drunk

Gonna be a long day at work. I need some bangin. 

03/21/2015 - 1:50am That's weird

That's weird. It was at 2:54 and 3:04 for me when I watched it on my macbook. 

03/20/2015 - 3:11pm I couldn't believe it either

I have always hit my R9 high. It promotes high spin rates and the R15 tries to limit spin rates. My spin rate was like 3200 rpm with my R9 and a launch angle of like 15 degrees. The R15 I had a spin rate of about 1400 and launch angle of 13 degrees. A good swing with my R9 I would hit it about 290. My miss hits with the R15 were going 305, and good swings with the R15 were going between 320 and 330 yards. 

If it's ever a windy day, it was impossible for me to hit my R9 into the wind or with a strong crosswind with my really high spin rates. The ball flight now isn't going to be bothered by the wind nearly as much and I was way more consistent with it. I'm relieved I finally went out looking for a new driver this year to say the least. The difference it makes still doesn't seem real to me. 

It is very compatible too. You can make so many adjustments to it to make sure it's perfect for your swing. If you are in the market for a driver, definitely go give it a shot and see for yourself. 

03/20/2015 - 1:47pm Drivers

I can't offer any insight on your irons. I bought my set of new Taylormade R9 TP irons quite a few years ago and love them. So I haven't bothered to even try out any iron sets for quite some time now.

But I just went out looking for a new driver this year and after trying out every new driver, I liked the Taylormade R15 (460cc head) the best. So then I started tweaking it and after hitting it for a bit I couldn't let myself walk out the door without it. It made my spin rate about 40% what it was with my old driver (Taylormade R9 430cc head), and my miss hits with the R15 would go 15 yards farther than a perfect hit with my R9. When I hit the R15 flush, it goes 30 to 40 yards farther than my R9 would on a good swing. I couldn't believe how big of a difference 6 years of technology advancements made. 

So if anyone is in the market for a new driver this year, I recommend giving it a look. Personally, I've never hit a different brand of club better than Taylormade. Taylormade is the superior club manufacturer in my books, and I have a hard time buying anyting else. I always give other brands a shot, and they never perform up to the standards of Taylormade for me. 

Edit: I second everyone's opinion about getting fitted for any clubs you buy though. A club that fits your body and swing makes a world of difference. 

03/18/2015 - 5:46pm "Guy nailed me from behind in the neutral zone."

lol

03/13/2015 - 11:14am Dammit man

Definitely should have took your advice and read it over lunch. It takes a lot to get to me, and I couldn't contain myself while reading this. Hell of a story. Now I need to go take a walk or something so that I can focus on getting some work done sometime this morning. 

03/13/2015 - 1:42am Today is going to be a good day. Beat Wisconsin!

03/12/2015 - 10:11am Michigan

Traveling back to Michigan from Nebraska for 6 days over Easter weekend. Fly back on Friday, Spring game on Saturday, opening day in Detroit on Monday, and fly back on Wednesday after spending some time with the family. Looking forward to a much needed break from work, and some good Michigan craft beers that are way too hard to come by out here. 

03/11/2015 - 2:53pm A few years ago

Referencing the UNC team that beat Illinois "a few years ago" was actually a decade ago. Pretty crazy to think about. It doesn't seem that long ago to me at all. 

03/09/2015 - 5:49pm Second Real Seafood

Real Seafood and Black Pearl are both good, but pricey options on Main St. But I'd take Real Seafood over Black Pearl. I've really enjoyed every meal I've ever ordered at Real Seafood.  

03/09/2015 - 4:37pm Opening Day in Detroit April 6th

I'm traveling back home this weekend and plan to go to the Spring game on Saturday, and then I plan on going to opening day in the D on Monday for my first opening day experience. Anyone have any tips for opening day? Do bars open earlier? If so, how early? When is a good time to get to Detroit? Good places to drink at? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

03/03/2015 - 2:48pm Nebraska

I just moved to Omaha not too long ago.. It gave the honor to Dinker's, although it mentions Stella's as being good in the discussion. I've yet to make my way to Dinker's, but it'll be very difficult to top the burger at Stella's. Stella's could make a case for the best burger I've ever had. My coworker says Stella's is the best. Going to have to make my way to Dinker's soon and see if this list got it right or not. 

12/29/2014 - 5:35pm This post was made at 5:24?

Edit: Read the post wrong. But still, fuck ya! 

12/29/2014 - 4:10pm What calls specifically did you have a problem with?

I'm a Green Bay fan, but have several friends who are Detroit fans, and they all seem to think Detroit got hosed by officiating yesterday. As a Green Bay fan, I feel like I must be biased since I didn't think they were that bad. One terrible call was overturning the 2 point conversion. I'll be the first to admit that there is no way they should have overturned that. But even if they don't overturn it, Detroit still needed a miracle to just tie the game. I wouldn't say it was a great officiating job by any means, but I don't think it was bad and cost the Lions the game. I thought Green Bay was the better team that deserved to win, and that nothing the refs did changed the final result of the game. 

One other thing I could see is that on the punt return for a TD, people wanted holding calls. But I saw plays on other kick returns where I thought they let similar things go in the Lions favor. Refs can't see every call. They miss calls every game. I just have a hard time seeing how Lion's fans can say the refs are the only reason Green Bay won yesterday. And I'm probably really biased when it comes to that, because in my mind nothing will ever be worse than Green Bay getting screwed out of a win in Seattle with the replacement refs. So I'd just like to hear a Lion's fan perspective on yesterday, and why you're convinced the Lions should have won that game if it wasn't for the refs giving the game to Green Bay. 

Regardless, both teams are in the playoffs, and it's either you win the Super Bowl, or you failed on the season. If you're the best team, you can beat anybody anywhere, and both teams still have their chance to do that! 

12/29/2014 - 12:51pm Quickie Burger

Quickie Burger on the corner of State and Hill. Good food, and good pitcher prices. Also, not an unreasonable distance to walk to Crisler if you drink a few too many beers (which I would assume will be the case tomorrow).

12/19/2014 - 9:52am Happy Friday and Happy Holidays

Happy Friday and Happy Holidays to those of you who bang me week in and week out. I love you all. 

12/18/2014 - 1:45pm Recent Statistics grad here

This is what I would have to say. The material and computational work in 217 was really easy and I understood the class, but that only accounts for maybe 20% of the course. It is nearly all proof based, and since I had never taken a proof based course before, the class was very difficult and time consuming. The average on our first exam was like a 90% (it was mostly computations), and then the 2nd exam and final had averages in the 30s. They were all proof based and graded very tough. The class was difficult, but it was curved enough to where it would have been difficult to not pass. 

When it comes to 426, I lucked out with my professor. Our class had it very easy compared to other people I knew taking the class with different professors. But at the same time, the material in 426 is also proof based. So if you struggle with proofs, taking 426 and 217 together is going to make for a very long semester. If you don't mind doing proofs and are good at them, getting good grades in both of those classes will be likely since most people seem to struggle with them. I took 183, but had no interest in going on and doing 280, so I can't offer any insight on whether it's difficult or not, but definitely be prepared for a long semester of difficult homeworks and exams with 217 and 426. I split up 217 and 426, took 217 winter term sophomore year, and took 426 fall term junior year, and still thought the classes were tough. 

For me personally, there is no way I would have taken a programming class the same semester as 217 and 426. Those two classes during the same semester would have been a handful for me. 

Side note, when you get into your concentration requirements, I strongly recommend STATS 415. I believe it is in a category where you are required to take one or two courses out of three or four, but STATS 415 was the most worthwhile course I took at the university. Data mining is very important and getting more and more important every day. I really enjoyed the course, learned a lot, and got a good grade. I was skeptical of taking it because I was told it was one of the hardest stats classes you can take, but I didn't think it was bad at all. 

12/08/2014 - 4:31pm 6

6 is perfect for me. The top 2 seeds get byes, and rewarded for being the best teams all season. This gives each conference champ and one wild card a chance at the title, but makes the road a lot tougher for the 3-6 seeds by making them play an extra game to go all the way. This keeps being the best during the regular season very important. How often did you say in the past during the BCS era that you thought the 7th or 8th seed was really deserving to play in the National Championship? Yes I understand it's sports, and you play the game for a reason because anything can happen, but the beauty of college football is the huge importance of the regular season. Make a team prove all year long that they deserve a shot, and reward the two who prove the most by letting them play one less game. But I'm happy with 4. Yes it's annoying that TCU and Baylor got left out for OSU, but I wouldn't put my money on any of those 3 teams to win it all anyways. I think the best two teams are in the playoff between FSU, Bama, and Oregon, and I think we will see some great football in January. 

12/01/2014 - 5:08pm That's not what I was trying to say

The gaming overall has been a great experience. Probably not quite as good as the PS4 based on what I've heard, but still very enjoyable. Every system is going to have a few minor issues, and Destiny and Halo will get their bugs fixed soon. But there is much more to the Xbox than just gaming. I use my Xbox for gaming maybe 20% of the time. Maybe even closer to 10%. So it has been everything I could ask for and more for what I use my Xbox for say 85% of the time, and very good for the other 15% of the time.

I just put that second paragraph in there to make the point that the system does a phenominal job doing the things I use it for most. I sure as hell wouldn't be satisfied and recommend it to someone if I didn't think it was well worth the money that you put into them. 

If you want something strictly for gaming, get a good PC. Don't waste your time with an Xbox or Playstation. 

12/01/2014 - 3:51pm Xbox One

Just bought mine a couple of months ago. I made the switch from playstation when I went from the PS2 to Xbox 360 and I'll probably always buy the Xbox from here on out since I loved the 360 so much. I love my One, but I will admit it does have its bugs. The party chat seems to struggle at times (although it has seemed better as of late) and some of the better games aren't the best running games out there. Destiny is what I play most right now and it has a few issues (after the last update, when in party chat, the game lags like crazy), and I bought Halo Master Chief collection as well and that is pretty much unplayable at this point. They have a lot of bugs to fix with that. So that is disappointing.

But as an overall system and all of the features outside of gaming have been great. My Xbox is on pretty much all evening and all night and it runs smooth and quiet even after being on for 8 hours or more. I don't have the kinect and have never felt the need for it either. Unless you want to be super lazy, the kinect isn't necessary in my opinion. I don't plan on ever buying it. 

Side note, if you have Xbox Live Gold, as of last night you could download Worms Battlegrounds for free. Wanna have a good time playing a free game? Play some multiplayer with some friends. It's even better while intoxicated. I'm not sure I've enjoyed my Xbox more than I did last night playing that game.

12/01/2014 - 12:52pm I named my right hand Bo

I named my right hand Bo, and my man parts woody because Bo beats... Alright I'll stop there.
