I remember reading an article that Gronk lives entirely off of his endorsements and doesn't dip into his salary at all

03/27/2016 - 3:00pm Unfortunately he won't have a problem

His name is out and based on googling his behavior is genetic. But he will enter the family business and continue acting like a schmuck while making more than any of us.

02/20/2016 - 8:44pm On some Trillium hops tonight

These 750mL bottles will be the death of me!

01/09/2016 - 7:34pm Melange 3 from the Bruery

At 16% or so I'm feeling it for sure

09/17/2015 - 5:34pm Singlecut bottles

Definitely available in Westchester

Larry Page, Madonna, Gerald Ford, Stephen Ross, Gilda Radner, James Earl Jones

Heady Topper with dinner, now sipping a 2014 KBS

01/18/2015 - 10:36am I'm not sure...

Either way I assume he gave input. He's voiced his opinion on this matter before:…

Is none other than "Michigan Man" Brad Bates

So you drink Chicago, Cali, and Missouri beer to stay local? :-P

07/12/2014 - 9:16pm My homebrews are always lightly carbonated

I don't think you can compare to force-carbonation

Bourbon barrel aged peanut butter and jelly Baltic porter

03/28/2014 - 4:15pm Don't call it a comeback

he's been here for years.

01/07/2014 - 7:01pm A friend of mine and fellow UM grad

Was contacted via Facebook by a recent Michigan football player who graduated and was looking for a job in finance. The Facebook message was riddled with basic spelling and grammatical errors. I am disappointed to think that Michigan may not be so far above some of the football factories we like to ridicule when it comes to academic standards for athletes.

With his 3rd pick of the game. Would've been a nice steal, although our secondary should be alright.

08/08/2013 - 5:24pm Are you really predicting 2 freshmen who are yet to play a down

Will be better than a top 10 and a 2nd round pick? If either of those guys ends up as good as Lacy I'd be content.

08/05/2013 - 11:30am I like the shirt and might buy

but hopefully it will be obsolete in a year.

08/02/2013 - 8:53pm 2 Belgians

De dolle ouerbier and st bernardus trippel. Moving onto dales pale ale now

07/23/2013 - 6:16pm Not that I think it was conscious

But wouldn't losing his eligibility potentially be a blessing in disguise for him? His draft stock can only go down this season.

07/20/2013 - 11:03pm Monks cafe ale

It reminded me of grape soda.

07/20/2013 - 10:33pm A flight of stouts

Which I liked. And my first Flemish sour on a coworkers recommendation, which I was not a fan of.

06/29/2013 - 11:16am If a bird in the (Da'Shawn) Hand

Is worth 2 in the bush, I imagine 2 birds in hand are pretty valuable.

I trust the coaches as evaluators ahead of any recruiting service.

06/09/2013 - 12:48pm David Robinson's son

Is also a future Notre Dame wideout

06/02/2013 - 4:17pm Hooch Fagaly

Of Washington has to be a name of the year candidate

05/06/2013 - 2:35pm Google is your friend

05/02/2013 - 12:32pm Just spent 5 minutes

trying to figure out what the hell team "Mar" was...hope they're worth the money

04/30/2013 - 7:55pm I assume

It's just a Doom beat, not especially produced for him.

04/26/2013 - 10:43pm Founders Breakfast Stout

Bought a few 4-packs this weekend. Need to ration throughout summer.

04/22/2013 - 3:19pm Lloyd Carr

Obviously his age is an issue as well, but he seems like he'd be a better fit than Brandon. Older alumni love him, so he'd be a boon for fundraising and he has at least some background as an educator.

04/10/2013 - 1:16pm Dump

Is an appropriate word to use in discussing the aftermath of that game.

04/10/2013 - 1:08pm His brother Tyler is doing alright

and was not as heralded of a college player. Playing with an elite PG helps though.

04/10/2013 - 1:03pm It's so hard to predict what these kids will do

D-Mo left, most people thought he should've stayed.

Lewan stayed, shocking everybody.

At this point, I wouldn't be floored if 0 guys left or if 4 guys left. I'll set the over/under at 2.

04/06/2013 - 11:57pm Go Blue

1 more to go!!!

04/06/2013 - 11:39pm LET'S GO BLUE


04/05/2013 - 10:27pm Motivation

I've seen comments about Syracuse motivating is with their trash talk a few times. If these kids aren't 100% motivated already by playing in the final four, I doubt any locker room banter will make a difference.

04/05/2013 - 8:51pm Mayflower porter

Never had it before, a local brew for me (Boston). Pretty solid.

04/03/2013 - 6:09pm Isn't this against NCAA regulations

are they not profiting off of a specific player?

03/29/2013 - 7:44pm What a cheap shot!

What could be the reason for that?

03/29/2013 - 4:19pm And its tied...

Much more interesting now

03/29/2013 - 4:18pm Ever since I realized

Mitch McGary = MMG = Maybach Music Group, I've been scaring whoever I'm watching with by giving my best Rick Ross "huh" (or however you spell his trademark noise) whenever Big Mitch (Larry Hoover) does something exciting.

03/20/2013 - 12:18pm NFL Waiting Rule

I think that the rule that athletes must wait 3 years from graduating high school to join the NFL is an underlying cause of this dilemma. Right now, players don't really have much of a choice regarding going to college if they want to play professional football someday. I'd have much less of an issue with the university making money off of Denard if he had the option to do something else; realistically, he does not.

To use an analogy, if you are a brilliant computer programmer instead of brilliant athlete , you can get a full ride to college, join a programming club on campus (not quite analogous to being on a team), and still work for Google and get paid for your talents. Obviously college is a testing ground in both instances, but once you have proven yourself it is only in football that a student cannot choose to enter the free market. The same analogy would hold true for a music student who can join an on-campus a-capella group while releasing an album or many other professions.

If football players had the choice to go pro and chose to stay in school, then fine, they are allowing their school to profit from them. Right now it isn't really much of a choice.

03/10/2013 - 6:13pm Last time I was at MDen

I saw them their.

03/07/2013 - 3:07pm How consistent have recruiting rankings been?

Does 90 points in 2002 mean the same thing as 90 points in 2012?

Also, what happened in 2002 that Carr's class was so much weaker than all of the other years?

03/02/2013 - 7:54pm According to Wikipedia

It is sort of halfback. When the redskins first started using the position, they moved the halfback out of the backfield and into the h-back spot. I assume it was a different player though.

Milk stout tastes like a chocolate milkshake. Harpoon chocolate stout is a little thinner. Two of my favorites, and somewhat nationally available.

03/01/2013 - 9:05pm Founders PA

Not super exciting, but delicious and drinkable

03/01/2013 - 12:47pm Chance Sorrell

I think the section on Sorrell got omitted accidentally...

02/28/2013 - 12:14pm Who else do we expect to leave?

I've seen mock drafts with GR3 as a borderline lottery pick along with Burke and Hardaway as a late 1st rounder.

02/22/2013 - 8:24pm Especially with that

Especially with that username!

02/19/2013 - 3:06pm I'm sure there are others as well

It's just when I see that a guy like Juju or Hand is interested in pre-med or engineering, I get overly optimistic because if that is a top priority then Michigan is a no-brainer.
