    I was just watching a video about the biggest upsets and of course App State vs. Michigan was the game they talked about.  My friend Rob, a die-hard Michigan fan, said they might never recover from that loss and 14 years later it seems to be true.  They have not been the same since that day.   Empty Arrogance exposed.  

    Not downplaying that game, but the phantom first down game against OSU killed us.

    McShay put out his first 2022 big board with Rattler and Sam Howell numbers 1 and 2. Said both have all the tools and makings of a franchise qb. Also had two other QBs in his top 11 in the QB from Liberty and USC whose names I already forgot. 

    Not as strong as last years class but 4 in the top 11 should man we will be in position to get somebody if Goff fails this year. 

    I saw an early mock that the Texans picking at 1 & taking Rattler.  Lions were #2 & took a DL out of Oregon.

    I like this a lot.  But...where is he playing today?  First base.  This is driving me freaking crazy, he is a major league second baseman, put him there and leave him there.  Enough of the stupid lineups with the Castros, neither of them will be here when the team is good.

    After cutting the cord on my cable, I haven't been able to watch as many games .. How is Schoop defensively at 2B, when compared with the hodgepodge of others who've played there?

  4. I agree on Campbell.  I think we'll start hearing the media say things like "Who could have seen this coming?" when the Lions surprise people.  We should direct them here. 

    They still need a lot of pieces, but I can easily see them flirt with .500 this season, due solely to the fact Patricia is gone.

    Does anyone have experience in dealing with lost baggage from an airline? I chose to fly Spirit (that was my first mistake I guess) down south for the 4th of July. On my way back from Atlanta I went to check my bag in and the printer at the bag tag machine never printed off the bag tag itself. A friendly Spirit Associate promptly came over to me and said I should just take it up to the main counter and they can tag it at the counter. Cool, seems easy enough.

    So I take it up to the counter, they scan my boarding pass and tell me I am all set and that they will tag it. That was mistake number two on my part, because I left before getting a baggage conformation ticket, which in the back of my mind I new wasn't right. Sure as ****, I get to Metro Airport and wait for a 1/2 hour at the baggage carrousel only to have no bag come out. I go over to the Spirit baggage claim office at Metro and they give me a little ticket stub with a QR code on it, tell me to scan it, enter in my personal info/address, and that my bag will be tracked and shipped to me in 3-4 business days. Here we are, day 4, no bag has been sent to my house, I go to the link on the Spirit website where they are supposed to provide updates on your claim, and no updates since yesterday morning.

    So how long do I give it before I declare my bag officially MIA for good and demand a reimbursement from Spirit. I've scoured the internet for an 800 # for Spirit to call where I can actually get a live human being to speak with and you can't get anyone on the phone outside of a reservations person. Should I drive up to Metro and go back to the baggage claim office and follow up there? What is a person to do? Scrambled eggs all over my face!

    I've lost a bag with Delta, but it was on the trip home after 11 days away. I just had to drive out to the airport & pick it up the next morning, which for me wasn't a big deal.  I will never fly Spirit again.  It's just not worth the hassle - & their customer service is awful.

    We did a quick run up 75 to the UP this week. It seems that 90% of the billboards on I75 are either gambling or marijuana related. 

    Realtors up here are going all in to try to capture the business of pot dispensaries. To see their billboards is hilarious. 

    "#1 realtors for marijuana businesses" with a cheesy looking couple standing back to back.

    Pet Peeve?  That Bet Rivers guy pointing at me at the top of every page. 

    I am already sick of sports gambling ads and it hasn't even been a year. 

    The Fan Duel ad seems to play before every you tube video and every commercial break on TV.  

    My wife has a friend who struggles with a gambling addiction.  She said it's **** right now.

    how many first round picks would it take for you to trade #1 to houston for the #2 pick?

    get our own first rounder back plus a houston first rounder and a brooklyn first rounder?

    I'd do that deal in a heartbeat.

  9. I think they'll surprise some people, but my big concern is WR.  Losing Stafford & Golladay will hurt .. & I don't know that we'll really be able to stretch the field with what we have.  I expect the defense to be markedly better - but still bottom third of the league.

    I'm not worried at all about Campbell.  Toe lint would be better than Patricia.

    this is a basic problem in the Windows world. MS has always taken the attitude that its their machine and you are the guest, so MS has always felt free to have windows reconfigure things on updates. I haven't noticed W10 is as bad in recent releases as it was initially but yeah - definitely an issue. I have gotten my configurations to where 80% of my work in Windows is done inside a virtual machine running under linux. If MS pulls any fast ones I just reload the previous instance until I figure it out. Greatly reduces stress when work needs to get done.

    But never fear, this fall we get Windows 11. Windows 10 was of course trumpeted as 'the forever versions of Windows', but never mind.

    I haven't had the issue on my SurfacePro at work, but several updates I've done on my personal laptop have caused all of my file names to go away.  Then I have to blindly navigate thru the start menu you find settings & uninstall the update.

    My desktop PC is only a year old and it's already dying so I will be buying a new one this weekend.   I want something fast, but don't want to spend a fortune.  What should I look for specifically that would give me an idea that I am getting a fast machine?  

     

    And when I buy it, I am stopping buy a sporting goods store to buy a new baseball bat to beat the living **** out of the one I have now - after I run over it with my car a few times.     This thing has caused me so much anger.   It's the automatic Windows updates, they are screwing everything up.    They should not have the right to force an update I don't want on me.   They should pay for my new machine, to be honest.

    It's Windows 10. It's garbage.  We have had to jimmy-rig 3-4 machines at our station to run "like" Windows 7, just to get the programs we use, like Audition, to run. & every time there's an update, Audition forgets all of the presets.

    The Pistons got the #2 pick when they were already contenders so they have been lucky before. They just drafted the wrong player. 

    Can you imagine if last night would have happened in 2003? With the team already assembled - & to add Lebron?

    yeah - in general making the basket catch out front instead of diving is a bit of a lost art in baseball anymore (Austin 26-Rdrs-Without-Diving Jackson says HI). I'm more impressed by Greene's ability to go back.

    You have to look at it from further back. The criticism would not be be for playing the better guy, the criticism would be that the guy who is the better guy in your program got beat out by another guy, which is why he transferred, from a program which you aspire to be better than, so by any definition there is no way he should be the best guy in your program.

    That's a good point made by you.

    If you like the PBS/BBC series’s. Try Atlantic Crossing, it just finished its run on Masterpiece. WWII drama around the relationship between FDR a and Norwegian Crown Princes Martha.

    Outlander on Starz is similar to Poldark.  Since it’s on cable it’s racier but still and interesting drama.

     

    Atlantic Crossing sounds fascinating.  A friend has suggested Downton Abbey. I had avoided that like the plague `cuz I thought it was too "chick flicky" - but a co-worker says he thought the same thing & has been pleasantly surprised.

    Bowman being the starter and replacing Cade McNamara during the season likely means the season is falling or going off a cliff. Harbaugh needs either McNamara or McCarthy to not only come out of camp as the starter, but shine doing so throughout the season if he wants to have any hope of being competitive.

    On 6/1/2021 at 2:19 PM, Gehringer_2 said:

    agree. Another transfer QB is another program fail.

    I get that - I realize it doesn't look good from a recruiting standpoint, but why can't Harbaugh be given credit for bringing in the right guy even if it is a transfer? I realize he hasn't earned the right to be given credit for much of anything - but I think it speaks worse of him if there is another QB who ends up being clearly better & yet he can't see the field `cuz he's not coach's guy. At this point I want the best player out there. If that's Bowman, fine.

    I don’t know about under the radar but my most important player to breakout is Jeff Okudah.  It would be a huge boost to the rebuild if he could become a solid corner in year two with a future trending toward the pro bowl level was expected when taken at #3.    

    I was gonna go Okudah as well, but I figured a lot of eyes will be on him so I didn't think of him as under the radar.

    For that, I'll go with Amani Oruwariye. With a simpler defensive scheme, the fact that we don't have Patricia calling defensive plays, a stouter DL that should be able to put pressure on QBs, and (I agree with you) an improved Okudah, I think Oruwariye may end up seeing quite a few balls thrown his way. I like his chances of improving.

  18. I heard Cowherd the other day say, when talking about the racing helmet thing, "Ya know who likes that? Dumb people."

    I usually like what he has to say but I think he's completely missing the point on Campbell. If no one is following, you are not a leader. So far, this team is following Campbell in a big way.
