Much harder to follow when games aren't regularly televised live - though I do check scores/highlights, usually after games. 

Hockey games were my favorite sporting event to attend while at Michigan - only regret was not getting season tickets before my senior year.

Ended up T-1 with 2 others, but get the 2 seed based on tiebreaker (head to head record) - primary lineup as follows:


QB Deshaun Watson 

RB Todd Gurley - my first pick at #2, our draft was 1.5 weeks before the season so Bell was taken #1

RB Chris Carson - initially had Jay Ajayi as my #2

WR Brandin Cooks

WR Larry Fitzgerald 

TE Travis Kelce

Flex Doug Martin down the stretch - Funchess earlier in the year

D/ST Texans

K Fairbairn - started season with Matt Bryant, Jason Myers when Bryant went down, and eventually Fairbairn

Subs : Frank Gore, Kenny Stills, Willie Snead, Blount (recent pick-up), David Njoku, also had Dez Bryant for a while 

12 team league so not as much depth as I would like. Definitely relatively weak at WR but more than make up for it at RB1 and TE, solid D/ST and K as well. Only regret was probably dropping DJ Moore around week 4

My guess would be Texans or Bears - Texans due to return of multiple key pieces coming off injuries (Watt and Watson) and Bears due to a pretty decent defense from last year getting better with the addition of Mack. Bears also lost something like 6 games last year by less than one possession - so it's not like they were being blown out. 

08/12/2018 - 12:48pm Post-race assessment - not…

Post-race assessment - not thrilled about the course layout, mainly the stretch of the first and last mile which had people running in both directions on a relatively narrow stretch of the lakefront trail. My guess this was a non-issue for the start of the 10K - but became an issue when the 5K was starting and 10K finishing. Also the sharp turns  coming into the finish area weren't ideal.

That being said - I'm glad they did it on the lakefront. Last time they had it south of Soldier Field - they had us running stretches in the loading dock areas of McCormick place - which on a hot/humid day is no picnic.

I'm doing the 5K. Not sure if others have participated in past years, but for me this year's race seems much more disorganized (i.e. website has limited information,  packet pick-up wasn't particularly well organized). Hopefully race day goes smoothly though.

Why suspend them at all...

"Since multiple players share the same position, the NCAA approved a request to stagger certain suspensions."

Latest I saw from yesterday was that he is still undergoing testing - but they won't have a full picture until swelling subsides.

Yours refreshed after I upvoted (and refreshed the page) - but the people who have zero have not changed.

Erik Larson has long been one of my favorite authors - Devil in the White City was one of my favorite's. I also enjoyed Thunderstruck and Isaac's Storm quite a bit. 

I'll have to pick up one of his other books in the near future.

O'Maury Samuels would be next on the list in terms of carries from last year - Kurt Taylor also comes off of a redshirt year, but who knows.

Interesting that it applies only to comments - seems that the OP cannot be voted on

05/29/2018 - 11:05am No - the hockey game is at

No - the hockey game is at Notre Dame stadium. I beleive it coincides with Blackhawks-Bruins game which is also being played at ND.

05/29/2018 - 9:55am Not sure what world this

Not sure what world this makes sense in...Soldier Field capacity is barely over 60k. Unless they were to move both games (unless this is a yet to be scheduled game) - can't see either school agreeing to it.

05/21/2018 - 11:17am I just read up on it some

I just read up on it some more - but the Day Zero doesn't necessarily mean they would be at no water, just that city water supplies would be shut off and people would have to go to specified sites to collect their daily 25L rations. In any case - they've enforced some conservation practices/limits already as you noted - and have also made efforts to repair some infrastructure (i.e. fixing leaks) to reduce waste.

05/21/2018 - 11:12am Hard to say - they were

Hard to say - they were supposed to be out this year in Cape Town, but the date when they expect to hit "Day Zero" has been pushed out several times (think the latest update has it pushed all the way to 2019). Ultimately it depends how much rain they get - the city has been impacted by a several years long drought which has depleted resevoirs to less than 20% of total capacity.

05/15/2018 - 2:25pm Unless that's a recent change

Unless that's a recent change - I think baseball allows suspensions to be served while on the DL. 

This would prevent him from playing in the postseason though - if the team actually makes it. It wouldn't matter if the 80 games had already been served or not.


05/02/2018 - 9:43am Related question would be how

Related question would be how many actually had the option to return (i.e non-seniors, did not hire an agent).

Wasn't the number Freeze was calling a Detroit (or Michigan) area code? Seems to have connections there already.

04/10/2018 - 9:45pm Not quite - he's not on

Not quite - he's not on scholarship so that wouldn't change.

Joey Dosik isn't actually a member of Vulfpeck - just a frequent collaborator (sax, keys, and vocals)...but given how much he tours/performs with them, he might as well be (ditto for Cory Wong and Antwaun Stanley).

This is pretty the alternate angles/bench reaction starting around the ~30 second mark

03/19/2018 - 2:05pm Beilein talked about it on

Beilein talked about it on Rich Eisen's show the week after the Big Ten Championship - he basically said exactly what you are mentioning about the mutual interest, if a kid has you in his top 2-3 and has reached out, attended camps, etc. you keep recruiting him. If he's got you on his top 10 or 12 - Beilein is saying see you later. He specifically mentioned McGary as someone who was super excited to have an opportunity to play at Michigan - and as a result he was someone he recruited.

Speaking of Gene Keady...the handful of times they showed him on TV at the games the past few days - he looks younger now than when he was coaching

They also had Denard that I would take the 230 rushing yards credited to the O-line with a grain of salt

Weren't many Russian athletes also banned from the Summer Olympics in 2016? 

11/28/2017 - 6:45pm I managed to do a Master's in

I managed to do a Master's in a year but was also able to count some coursework completed during undergrad towards my graduate degree - so a 30 credit requirement became something like 18 additional credits required. This was all done at Michigan so that made it easier to transfer credits...I doubt it would have happened if I moved to another school.

That being said - there's been some influx of graduate programs in recent years which are meant to be completed in a year - I think many schools have recognized that potential students are unwilling or unable to delay earning income for 2+ years. I imagine that presents some possible options for grad transfers which might not have existed 5-10 years ago.

11/13/2017 - 10:16am Looks like Devlin and Dorsett

Looks like Devlin and Dorsett registered in the box score from yesterday with a couple receptions each - so definitely not out of the question. 

11/13/2017 - 1:28am Curious if he could actually

Curious if he could actually tie/break that record this year - between special teamers on the roster and the RB rotation, I'm sure there's at least a few players who have yet to catch a touchdown from him

I was watching the game with some Purdue fsns and they made a similar observation with regards to lack of program knowledge. As soon as he started saying that he's surprised that Purdue made a QB change...their response was, that's literally what they do every single game, sometimes multiple times.
