He used to wear some killer cowboy boots though

I wouldn't say NASA is overselling anything.  It is a noteworthy discovery and is being reported factually by the agency.  They can't help that people immediately let their imaginations take off with a million possibilities.  

And as far as this being some done by NASA as part of an effort to grease their trade, that may be correct.  But nonetheless this is an important discovery that should be considered when funding decisions are made.  There are also people on Earth who have a vested interest in downplaying the possibility of life on other planets in order to grease their own trade.  Just saying.

I'm sure he'll plead down to "Seduction of an Unmarried Canine" and keep his job.

If you didn't closely watch every game last year, it would be easy to believe Michigan was just a bad team. Hence the 'prove it' attitude the national press is taking towards us right now.

But if you watched every game last year you'd know that our D gave us a chance to win every game. With an average QB we would have won everything besides PSU and maybe Wisconsin. PSU wasn't a laugher until the second half, and Wisconsin was much the same. We gave away MSU, OSU and South Carolina. With Shea last year we would have been 11-2.

Sorry, but couldn't Harry have done better than marrying some divorced American social climber with family drama issues?

05/08/2018 - 10:27pm I started traveling significantly for work around

I started traveling significantly for work around the time my first kid was 1.5 years old, and did it for about eight years, 30-40 nights a year away.

It's hard to overstate how relaxing it was, even if I happened to be working a twelve hour day, as was frequently the case. I loved driving to my hotel room after a long day at work. I'd usually stop at the store and grab a little something.

I'd go to the room, throw on the TV or some tunes, and have a drink or two as I leisurely prepared to go out for dinner. I'd take a shower and walk somewhere for dinner (I liked going alone because I couldn't stand my coworkers tastes in food). I'd have a nice meal on the client's dime, along with one or two more drinks while I read my book before and after dinner. Then, it was back to the room to chill, or to meet the co-workers for more drinks.

I'm getting a tear in my eye reminiscing....

Yes. He has a great mind for the game. He's an excellent analyst, even if his demeanor is lacking.

I'm a member of both. Don't ask. I prefer Costco, but their presence in Traverse City has challenged Sam's to up their game. Still, Kirkland brands offer a lot compared to Sam's Choice. I like making about 5 trips a month to Costco, one per month to Sam's.

04/23/2018 - 9:12am I think we should expect more

I think we should expect more from a Michigan man.  I'm always somewhat uncomfortable with the underlying psychology of these "Dads Against Daughters Dating" types.  It's just creepy subconsciously.  Just let it go Jay.  You'd be better off handing the guy a box of rubbers, because you can be sure they're going to fuck, so they should at least be safe.

04/22/2018 - 9:46pm My issue is that he thinks he's entitled to some

My issue is that he thinks he's entitled to some kind of public trial whereby we can judge whether or not he should still be on the team, and whether or not the team's reasons for cutting ties with him are merited. He could have just taken his dismissal in stride and gone elsewhere. Now, given his behavior, he is most likely done with football.

04/22/2018 - 3:13pm Beating another Power 5 team

Beating another Power 5 team who had a losing record would not have moved the needle for a Power 5 playoff candidate, and it should't for them.  Schools like UCF need to basically schedule at least one serious title contender and one other solid P5 team AND beat them in order to be in the conversation, otherwise their whole schedule has about as much menace as Alabama's typical nonconference lineup.

04/22/2018 - 12:57pm They beat one power five opponent (Maryland)

They beat one power five opponent (Maryland) during their regular season. It would have been asinine to call that a playoff resume

04/21/2018 - 7:42pm I don't get it

I mean, have some sales or something. Record Store Day is basically "Here's a bunch of supply restricted albums at 150% of normal retail". No thanks

04/21/2018 - 11:04am I think a lot of these micro breweries and

I think a lot of these micro breweries and distilleries will tank as soon as we see any type of significant economic downturn. Traverse City has brewpubs for days, and distilleries tucked away here and there, all dependent on what they see as an ever increasing supply of tourist disposable income. A little stock market tumble here, decreased corporate spending there, some unemployment, it will all fall down.

04/12/2018 - 12:26pm I also think that a lot of us are seeing some

I also think that a lot of us are seeing some comeuppance though. There have been so many stories for so long that just never seemed to go anywhere. Hopefully the guilty parties suffer their just punishment, and may the victims take whatever satisfaction they can in that justice!!

It would be nice if Peter Secchia would cough up some money to cover this, so MI taxpayers won't be on the hook. So, of course he won't.

I feel that the players could probably add something to the coach's breakdown, but managerial arogance prevents the coach from even asking.

Over at The Only Colors they're deliberately reversing this story. in their telling, the agent tried to get Stephens to steer Harris and Bridges to him in exchange for Bowen, which MSU, on the side of righteousness, declined.

02/23/2018 - 8:58am I remember a few years ago

I remember a few years ago when Izzo whiffed on Jabari Parker and a few other targets and had to settle for )what were for him) some weird guys.  Then, he comes back guns blazing in 2016 with Bridges, Langford, Winston and Ward.   It was proclaimed by Izzo to be his best class ever. It seemed then that he must have come to some realization, that to compete with the big boys he was going to have to start playing a little (more) dirty.  I think we are seeing the fruit of that now.

If Florida's offense last year means that Mcelwain is unqualified for an OC position, our performance last year would have to be said to say the same of JH.

01/30/2018 - 8:32pm Reading Sparty comments on Reddit and on the RCMB,

Reading Sparty comments on Reddit and on the RCMB, I am struck by how out of touch they are. They have already pencilled in Izzo and Dantonio emerging victorious against the wicked media. The only question is will they or will they not successfully pursue monetary damages for libel and slander. The possibility that there may have been a cover-up, or that Izzo or Dantonio may have acted less than 100% honorably does not seem to be taken seriously.

01/30/2018 - 10:17am RCMB Hawt Take

I had a minor freakout the other day when I got a call from a collections agency.  Apparently the almost $17,000 in health insurance premiums, the $6,100 in HSA contributions, and whatever my dental premiums are is not enough for the medical industrial complex.  They need another $100/month from me.  What have I gotten out of the whole deal:  braces for one kid (which has sucked up almost the entire HSA balance), three urgent care visits (Not ER), and that's about all I can identify.    

01/19/2018 - 6:19pm Bell's FTW

Founders us all about IPAS, whiskey barrel aged beers, syrupy dark beers and other weird stuff. They seem to have abandoned pale ales, lagers, and pilsners (their pilsner is more like an IPA).

Fruit beers, IPAs and whiskey barrel aged beers don't appeal to me at all. Bell's makes a lot of beers with different flavor profiles, and I love them for it. But when I'm at the store I see (literally) rows and rows of fruit beers from breweries I've never heard of, with names riffing off of some slang term for weed, with some weird design on the bottle, retailing for $13.99+ per sixer.

No thanks
