The blame for that is probably squarely on the shoulders of the Michigan DOT. They screw up everything.

I know we ultimately control our own destiny, but as a former player and current commentator, do you ever find yourself questioning the SEC's stranglehold of the top of the rankings as each season begins? Things will play out as they should, I assume, but is it a disservice to other conferences that there's already talk of possibly three SEC teams in the playoff? Would love to hear an insider's thoughts, to the extent that you can share them!

I appreciate this response and it is absolutely up to you and your son to decide if/how thanks are necessary/accepted! That said, I would offer that you do deserve thanks for supporting him. It's a giant team effort! Nothing but respect to you, and apologies for going on and on!

Nice. If Mr. Jordan still resides it Canton, he'd pass on the consolation prize. He's around 30 minutes from AA and probably knows that town well. I live up here in Canton too and its the same as it is all over the state- the feigned moral and intellectual authority will simply not allow the consideration that another school could be a better fit for a young man. Y'all know how it goes. Dont be shocked to see MJ in a Michigan football ad that touts "the best are from here" or something to that effect. All considered, savage post by Mr. Jordan. He's dancing all over that hornet's nest with wreckless abandon and I support it. Oh, and thank you and your son for his service, Soldierdad.

Excellent! I go to a lot of IEP meetings and you'd be amazed at how many parents leave treatment up to ill-equipped special education school programs. They do their best, don't get me wrong, but then the supports disappear during the transition period (high school to whatever's next) and advocacy for accommodations is every man (student) for themselves. We've recently started referring students and parents to an ABA derivative that focuses on the soft skills necessary for work, and we have parents take part in training concurrently, so the behaviors can be practiced at home, and then translated into work experiences we authorize for the students (generally a paid, two-week community-based assessment in an integrated workplace). It's a safe way to introduce them to work with a job coach who assists them and reports back to us so we can determine further training needs. It's a process, but the results thus far are wildly successful. If we can integrate those skills into an area of interest that really catches a student's focus (often hyper-focus to the point of obsession with some ASD kids), then they can do really well. Of course, we educate employers and offer them supports too (to all but eliminate training costs/risk), so it's really a community effort. I am happy to share the curriculum with you. Just shoot me an email at CookA10@michigan.gov if you're interested. Yeah, I work for that state up north, but this stuff transcends the rivalry (I'm all OSU, anyway, for what it's worth). Keep doing what you're doing for them, and when the time comes, if you think it'd help, look for a VR program in Northern Cali. Your kids should be entitled to these programs for free based on their eligibility (diagnosis). Apologies if none of that is new info to you...I get jazzed about this stuff.

I'm with ya...not offended, just feel like we're reaching here. I'm a voc rehab counselor (nope, not drugs) and ASD referrals are common. There are some really innovative services available for natural supports and their kids/students out there that we utilize and the results speak for themselves. I'd be happy to share, if you're interested, NorCal. You too, Ramzy. I hold your Wednesday contributions in high regard (and your tweets are fire), but you may have ventured out of your element with this one.

Quiverfull of olive branches. Good on you. This is a good read and as good of a day as any for sharing.

Sorry to post again but I got sore about this call. There was probably an impression from his shoulder pad on dude's Maryland jersey/body. How do you miss that?
Comment 18 Dec 2018
Did the ref in the white hat make the targeting call? That would explain things.
Comment 28 Sep 2018
It's just a matter of time and perspective, really. I am pretty excited/anxious about tomorrow night. Right now, with what's on the line in this game (yes, I know there will always be one loss scenarios), it's a rivalry. "The Rivarly" is with just Michigan. I really don't like thinking highly of PSU's team, but they are solid, and our biggest roadblock to what we want at this point in time.

Here's an honest poster. I don't mind it.
Comment 04 Sep 2018
There's a lot more to the "yawn" than you think. In fact, "yawn" contributes more to the conversation about the polls than your post. Let me help you out... "We dropped 77 and beat the spread but fell in the rankings...yawn." "Once again, we drop in the poll and two SEC teams are in the top four...yawn"

A guy named Narcisse can't handle not being the presumed number one. Go figure.

Add another Michigan to the mix

You're alright, Ozzy. Maybe the right approach to all of this lies somewhere between ours, and yours. All we've got is this platform for civil discourse and you're nailing it.

Count me as one of those OSU/Detroit hybrid fans. Memories make the man, in sports, in a lot of ways. I grew up in metro Detroit but my Dad took me to the Shoe and my Grandpa used to take me to Municipal. That's why I'm up here loving the Buckeyes and the Tribe, but also the Wings and Pistons. I guess if Columbus had the Jackets back then or somebody got me hooked on the Cavs at Gund it'd be a different story. Life is fun in that kinda way.

Dwayne started off with the Cosbys. He had a crush on Denise and later ended up with Whitley (sp) on A Different World, a Cosby spin-off. Right Urban Sitcom(s).

I'm inclined to agree with you, even though I'm not a fan of it. With that said, I'd ask where the credit is that's due to program culture, strength and training staffs and coaching staff/athletic departments in general (OSU). It's not as if these five guys came to work each day and were only impacted by your new OL coach and didn't interact with anyone else. I understand this is PR for Michigan, so there isn't any disclaimer or fine print, or a backside with other credits listed, but surely you can see why some would find it disingenuous.
