I was reminded seeing the Twitter post by steakNstiffarms in Johnny's article above -

Jason: Is there any chance we (OK ... you/11W) could bring Elika back for a once a week (heck - even once a month!) column?! Her Twitter posts are spot on, and she's so good at spreading on the sarcasm. Just askin ...

What it really comes down to is this:

Is there any room left for Clark in this class?! Does the coaching staff value him more than someone like Gallimore, Cager, etc.?

Past transgressions can be mended with a humble apology, a strong work ethic, and exemplary performance. (And especially with the help of time).

AllinOSU looks to be this weeks winner, perfectly predicting Dontre Wilson for 71 yds.

Michigan needs to some big time boosters to step up ... Hoke's contract is pretty rough to buy out. Firing him means they (UofM) are on the hook for the remainder, IIRC.

Nick Vannett - 77 yards (and 5 receivers w/over 50 yds ea. for the Bucks!)

Wondering if anyone else is having trouble posting GIFs from IE11.0.12 64-bit (Windows 7 Pro). I can get the popup window where I can enter the URL of the GIF, but pressing OK to insert the image just locks up the site for me. I must close IE and restart it.

And yes - I cannot use another browser due to work restrictions.   :(

I just want to edit/change BucksFan's icon on a daily basis ...

Derrick Kief (At Alabama - from Cinci.)

I also think Chad Mavety (JuCo - now at FSU) would have helped the O-Line a lot. Plus he had that outstanding facial hair ...

~~Sidenote: I know it's the "in" thing to note what a maniac beast-builder Marotti is but until this team shows me something that resembles tough, physical football on a consistent basis again, count me among the unimpressed. We're a finesse team right now. Bunch of scatbacks and guys who don't tackle very well.

Not to nit-pick, but Marotti is not responsible for the heart and determination of the players on the field. He is responsible for molding the young men's bodies into chiseled stone, which he has done in exemplary fashion. There are waaaay too many pics of young men in this football program who have been transformed into ripped beasts to disagree with this point.

I think a must get is not necessarily just the best overall player, but a player that fits a position of great need.

With this definition in mind when looking at the class of 2016, you could make the case that one of the TE prospects (Hausman?!) is the "must get" in that class.

Interesting ... This is the first case I can think of on the site where Birm and Mike are sort of disagreeing on a recruit - in the same thread.

So: Will the Lord of Whispers smell what The Rock is cooking?! Or will The Rock crumble under Birms' otherworldly prognostication ability?!

Stay tuned!
