Ahem, also: Go to Hell, Rutger

Badger is a Tight End, not a left guard. He's too lanky.

Somehow it seemed that during the WMU game the band played even less than last season. Was it the same on Saturday? Listening to some horrible pop song (or country!?) just makes the media timeouts seem even longer.

Same heat issues for me, Ken. My smoker is propane and very hard to keep steady. 

Easy one to that always works well is a spatchcocked whole chicken. Smoke flavor is great and it pairs well with a good, homemade sauce. First thing I ever smoked

I would also like to be his neighbor.

I miss the weekly recipes as well. I have done this one a few times but will need to dust it off again:

I've done it with Brats and Mild Italians (since my family doesn't love the spice like me) but you can't go wrong with this one.

MLive is reading Twitter and publishing it. This is news coverage now.

Great play call on 3rd down there

That was a good drive! #analysis

ASU’s QB is just awful. Overthrowing a 6’5 beast all game. Hard to watch

I'd skip ABC and just hit Ashley's and The Beer Grotto. Fritas for sandwiches (and beer) after a bunch of beer at Beer Grotto is always a good idea.

30-10 Michigan. 

09/02/2018 - 1:11am I’m just really disappointed…

I’m just really disappointed with the running game and the line, like everyone else. ND’s defense might be legit but we didn’t do ourselves  any favors either. 

i get that the line is thin but why was our first designed screen pass in the fourth quarter? It’s mind boggling to me that it took over three quarters to run a screen to alleviate pressure especially with guys who can catch balls out of the backfield.

The situational offensive play calling again was again questionable at best...continued inside runs on first and second down buried us on multiple possessions and that second and goal pass which ended up in a sack (with no pass protect) was brutal. 

As a Dad, “I’m not even mad, I’m disappointed”

If Grant Perry doesn't catch 45 passes this year I will scream at some clouds.

I'd just start looking for two pairs...highly doubtful you'll find four together at that price this late.

Bench Mason was always going to be a football player or Marine. Love this guy.

We did some camping and just spent a great but very hot week visiting friends Miami and Key West.

I also spent a weekend in Seattle celebrating a friend’s wedding, which was excellent. Due to some long intl work trips, this summer felt really short. Good/bad as football is just around the corner.

I'm really bummed Rick Reilly is stuck behind a paywall now.

Sounds like Nebraska will be at night and more rumors around PSU in the past few weeks as well. Could be all three based on TV stuff, I believe.

I binged this on a flight to Asia over the weekend. Anyone else finish it?

Kingston Davis...didn’t do himself any favors. Good thing UAB snapped him up before it aired. 

Highly entertaining season, the change of scenery was welcome. Years ago I spent time in the Coffeyville/Independence area and there are some great people there. 

07/19/2018 - 5:04pm Did you forget Tim Ream?…

Did you forget Tim Ream? Fulham’s player of the year in their promotion from the Championship back to the Premier League and can play both CB and LB. He’ll be 34 but I could still see him making the squad depending on injuries and...lack of other options

I noticed the other day while driving on Stadium that the new practice field is done and also has the blue endzones. Beautiful 

07/18/2018 - 2:21pm There is a lot to like about…

There is a lot to like about this young crop of Midfielder talent, especially with McKennie and Adams. I can see McKennie anchoring the US midfield for the next 10 years. 

I'll be interested to see Keaton Parks develop at Benfica as well. If he can break into the starting eleven, he'll have some great opportunities at Champions League matches as well. 

Whatever is happening at FC Dallas' Youth Academy needs to be captured by US Soccer and replicated. They are turning out loads of talent.

Wisconsin is bringing Brooks Bollinger, who is a 15th year senior and a real leader for the young guys.

The only omission that stands out is George Acosta, who signed with Boca Juniors just after he turned 18 in April. Occasionally he's listed as a midfielder but I think he's more of an attacker. 

He just got his first U-20 MNT call-up the other day but has played with the Under 17's in the past, including the U-17 World Cup squad in India. 

07/03/2018 - 7:52am Eaton can be *both* a good…

Eaton can be *both* a good person and have bad ideas on how to run the city. The two aren't mutually exclusive. 

His fear mongering regarding crime is patently ridiculous, though. Why is he still taking Dahlmann's money? $6500 since 2010

07/02/2018 - 7:35pm Eaton is a clown and…

Eaton is a clown and District 4 should feel bad. 

06/28/2018 - 1:00pm There has been some talk of…

There has been some talk of doing a secondary draw after the Group Stage to avoid issues like this. However, with the travel arrangements, tickets, etc that would be very difficult, especially in countries like Russia or 2026 in the USA/CAN/MEX.

06/28/2018 - 10:26am Whatever happens, this will…

Whatever happens, this will be one very lopsided bracket. Saturday's matches will be great (France/Argentina and Uruguay/Portugal). 

Senegal/Colombia is heating up...some good chances from both teams.

BRB going to go scream into a field about the 2002 World Cup handball again. 

06/27/2018 - 3:47pm Thanks for posting this...I…

Thanks for posting this...I tried earlier but apparently I can't start threads any more. 

Awful World Cup from Germany...lead for a total of 2:30 in three matches. 2 minutes, 30 seconds.

Yes, I'm having the same issue in Chrome.

Rae and Wagner are good...otherwise I watch on Telemundo. 

Studio analysis and the recap show has been absolutely awful.

06/23/2018 - 12:50pm Mexico counterattack on that…

Mexico counterattack on that second goal was beautiful. South Korea with some ugly fouls here down the stretch. 

06/22/2018 - 6:26pm Oh yeah the Albanian Eagle…

Oh yeah the Albanian Eagle goal celebration is a really big deal 

06/22/2018 - 3:49pm Gooooooooooal Switzerland…

Gooooooooooal Switzerland. What a match!!!!!

06/22/2018 - 12:45pm Oh Gylfi no....missed…

Oh Gylfi no....missed penalty in the 82nd minute. Nigeria with a few minutes to kill the match now. That counterattack is lethal

For sure, volleys are always cool. He got subbed off after the head wrap...should be 5-6 minutes of stoppage time at least.

06/22/2018 - 12:09pm Sweet first touch and cool…

Sweet first touch and cool finish from Musa. 1-0 Nigeria. Great counterattack 

06/22/2018 - 11:12am Nigeria's kits are so great…

Nigeria's kits are so great. I wish Nike were as creative with all of their soccer designs rather than the boring templates they use for most countries. 

06/22/2018 - 10:51am Time wasting is part of the…

Time wasting is part of the game, of course. But CR's time wasting was getting a bit embarrassing towards the end. 

But yeah, CR is always, always a tough match-up, especially with Navas, who is so good. 

06/22/2018 - 10:42am Tough one for Costa Rica,…

Tough one for Costa Rica, who are always a difficult match. Neymar is such an incredible player but my God the constant flopping is so aggravating. 

06/21/2018 - 2:08pm Agreed--some low percentages…

Agreed--some low percentage shots (though that one went off the bar) and just missing the final touch on passes near the box. Guerrero needed to convert that chance early on. His first touch looked off today and Saturday...he hasn't played much at all since the suspension and it showed.

I thought Farfan should have started alongside him. 

06/21/2018 - 1:22pm Really disappointing for…

Really disappointing for Peru...should have beaten Denmark on Saturday were good enough for a draw today. A cruel game, same as Morocco found out yesterday. 

Hope it's not another 36 years before Peru is back. 

06/21/2018 - 10:19am Vamos Peru! Asked my wife…

Vamos Peru! Asked my wife how she's feeling ahead of the match "Barfy". 

06/20/2018 - 3:26pm A hair offside…

A hair offside...heartbreaking for them. 

06/20/2018 - 1:25pm Huh I thought everyone had a…

Huh I thought everyone had a star on their own user name when logged in. I didn't realize you could see it.

I think it's because I have elevated rights (I think?) because I occasionally cover Soccer for the site and need to post #content

Actually I won the 1926 World Cup.

Dellacamera is awful. I don't mind Derrick Rae but 80% of the matches I watch on Telemundo.
