Starting to think we talk about Harbaugh more than Michigan fans.....

I consider myself fortunate to have gotten a chance to run at the old Larkins courts in the 90's as well. You're right it was not uncommon to find big names playing in those games. My guess is they probably don't allow much of that anymore. Different times but those days were great!

Did Warinner throw in a "and so forth" into those quotes!? It's official, NOW he has the makings of a head coach. There's nothing left to teach this man.

All the talk typically gets caught up in paying the players in some form, however things like this are just another HUGE benefit these football scholarship athletes receive. What a great idea and kudos to coach Meyer for emphasizing the importance of life after football. Could you imagine having contacts to these types of companies and businessman when you graduated? In this climate its tough to get your foot in the door to a secretary of a company much less ever getting a chance to talk with the owner/ceo or other higher ups. I think T Powell tweeted something along the lines of "if you fail at OSU its because you chose too" I really agree with him! Feels good to know our Buckeyes are thinking outside of just football. Great job all around!

 Watched it a few months ago and it still holds up well today with the storyline, false scares, etc.. just an overall great movie.

I must say (and please don't take it the wrong way) Its nice to hear your opinion and take, Earle! I'm so used to the quick wit and pun posts that I about fell over when you gave a serious reply! +1 as I would like to hear your thoughts more!

Comment 28 May 2015

I don't think Meyer has covered a UM spread yet?? (I could be wrong) MSU is the best bet at home. We beat them by a TD+.

Comment 28 May 2015

We need this thing called offense. Tibs will land somewhere just not a good fit for the Bulls at this point. I think both parties knew it and there was no surprise in it.

Comment 28 May 2015

Certainly understand that everyone has their own taste of music but don't understand the hate towards Kid Rock?(Not pointing to just you because there are a lot on here that have said similar things) If it's simply his music, fine we all have different tastes. However, Rock has done tons of stuff for military families, troops, etc.. He is one of the few acts out there that is making a conscious effort to drive down not only ticket costs but vendor food/beverage costs to his shows. Saying that he can afford to take a pay cut to not have the fans have to buy a $9 beer and $6 hot dog. On top of all of this he's a huge Sparty fan which means he probably hates UM. Again, I get people may not like his music but overall he seems like a pretty cool, down to earth guy.

Do people remember the Miracle on Ice game vs the Russians or the Gold medal game vs Finland?  Its very possible to have a semi final game be more important than a championship game. OSU beating Bama will have a greater impact on the college football landscape than us winning the NC against Oregon.

Comment 27 May 2015

The scary thought is, outside of Wisconsin, they didn't play their best football! Settled for field goals inside the 10 against Bama. Turned it over 4x(!!??!!) against Oregon. Its crazy to think how dominate we were even with those mistakes. Also, how out of hand those games would have gotten had we not made those mistakes.

Comment 27 May 2015

Not a Cavs fan but this is great! Twitter has its moments and this is one!

Comment 21 May 2015

Is everyone else's offices as dusty as mine? Thanks for sharing!

Comment 20 May 2015

I agree, Its different for me if they are students dressing up. I had no problem with our students dressing as Tressel or wearing the Road Warrior shoulder pads. As a student I think that is cool. as a middle aged man I think its desperate and sad.

Comment 20 May 2015

Talk to the guy who's seat they stole to move down front. They don't have tickets to those seats and typically try to justify it to those people by telling them they can get them on TV. They are trying to get on TV trust me have had a run in with them.

Comment 20 May 2015

This is true, however, between you and I, the west coast of Michigan is very nice. St Joe, New Buffalo and Grand Haven to name a few are great lake towns along the coast of Lake Michigan.

Thank you! First one I saw with Tiger Woods! I cannot stand him!

Comment 15 May 2015

Yep, very risky investments. Like any business, it is who you surround yourself with when it comes to managing. The number one problem in Bars/Restaurants as an owner is having someone there you can trust. Its far to easy and very common for employees to steal, especially on the bar side of things (Over poor drinks, give drinks away to friends, skim cash, etc.. ) As an owner, you either have to be there 24/7 or damn well trust the people you have managing it.

No, they have big nose tackles, we just have bigger QB's!
