Wisconsin did the same in their win.

Agreed, need more info. What does he WANT to do besides just work? It sounds like he needs something to fill his time, what's important with that? Adding income is nice, but can it be a passion rather than a good paycheck?

I'm maybe 2-4 hours into Odyssey, but (apparently, I haven't gotten to this part yet) it's got a big naval element as well, basically beacuse Black Flag was so fun. Dudes with arrows instead of cannons, but similar.

Didn't play RDR and haven't played 2 yet. Just re-played the Witcher 3 which I'd still put as my #1. Just started AC Odyssey, so far so good. RDR2 will probably be next on my list.

How easy is this for other teams to duplicate? Who has the personnel to pull ou off? Ou does it require the Trohl center?

The real measure of Brooks' defense would be Brooks on the floor and Simpson off it. I don't hate Brooks as the first guard off the bench - Poole and X can't play 40 minutes each, someone has to play at the 1 and the 2.

I'll bite. I have 2, real easy pulled chicken slow cooker recipes. For both, put chicken breasts in the slow cooker with sauce on low for 4 hours. Then use forks (or meat claws) to pull meat apart after 4 hours. Stir and serve.

  • Option 1: Tropical BBQ Sauce (I like Sweet Baby Ray's Hawaiian) and a jar of pineapple - nice pulled chicken sandwiches.
  • Option 2: A good salsa verde (Costco has a good one) for pulled chicken tacos

Either way I want to hear Keith Jackson call a tackle of his.

I did this once, actually on purpose though. With my permit after lacrosse practice in the gym in high school because it was too snowy out, my mom picked me up from practice in my 1991 Jeep Wrangler. I then went to drive home and turned a little too far on a surface road. I held the fishtail for a good 15 seconds or so, very impressed with myself while my mom freaked out in the passenger seat until she realized we were doing it at about 7 miles an hour. I clutched, adjusted, and away we went.

Wide tires weren't an issue, the BFG ATs could handle whatever.

I sold the Jeep when I realized two cars in Chicago were dumb and I could use the cash. I definitely under priced it because I had 5 offers within an hour. It went to a good home and I'm sure it's still making that owner happy.

Cars sure were cool back then... also DAMN slow. Horsepower and speed are democratized  like never before.

My 2015 VW GTI (210HP, 256 ftlbs, ~3000lbs, < $30K) goes 0-60 in 6 seconds. That's faster than everything on this list:https://www.zeroto60times.com/6-second-cars-0-60-mph-times/

The BMW M1 is slower. The BMW 850i is slower. Panteras? Slower. Ferrari 328 GTS? Slower.

It's still a good time to be a car guy or gal.

In the US the Beetle for sure, but that layout's in everything from Porsche 356s and 911s to OG Fiat 500s, to Smart Cars.

Best snow ride was in the avatar, a 1998 Jeep Wrangler, with a 2 " lift, springs from a Rubicon, 32x11.5" BFG ATs, a 5 speed manual and the 4.0L straight 6.

During the small amount of time I lived in Lansing (wouldn't recommend it) we got about 12" of snow overnight. Made my 5 mile drive to work in my usual 10 minutes because all 4 lanes were empty. As long as there weren't other cars that thing was unstoppable.

I'm a huge fan, and excited to be (almost, kinda?) working on updates for them (I work for a large auto supplier as an engineering manager).

However I've only ever driven one and owning one is a back burnered pipe dream. But someday I will. Someday.

Wendy, I'm sorry for your loss! Make sure you borrow it back when your kid comes home so your clutch muscle doesn't atrophy.

However the SQ5 is a nice replacement. I've said before that I think the SQ5 and Macan are really the "Rich Person's GTI". They're the new Uber-Hot-Hatch. Glad you like it!

They look good, they're basically a smaller (acadia sized), 5 seater Traverse.

As a former 2X Wrangler owner make sure those "Potential adventures" become real ones. An ORV sticker goes a long way.

Also - Jeep sold more Wranglers than Ford, Chevy, and Dodge sold Mustangs, Camaros, and Challengers last year. They make EXCELLENT toys. Just make sure you use it as a toy! Drop the top, leave the doors at home...

Ergonomics are definitely a factor: https://jalopnik.com/the-real-reason-all-these-crossovers-are-selling-like-c-1829595250

No kids for me yet, but my wife was saying that she's not looking forward to the bend and twist of car seats in my GTI. Of course, she has a new Cherokee.

01/08/2019 - 9:41am Leases are all about…

Leases are all about residual. You've got to remember that the dealer gets to sell a lease twice.

F-150 - $50K Sticker, figure your lease is $6K/year (500/month).

Ranger - $40K Sticker, Figure your lease is $6/year (500/month).

With 3 years and 36K miles, the F-150 will be worth 35K, the Ranger worth 20K. The dealer sells the F150 - they get $18K from the lease and $35K from the sale, for $53K. If they do the Ranger they get $18K from the lease and $20K from the sale - for $38K. It's easy to see how the F150 payments could go down thanks to the "second sale" value.

(BigH0use - I assume you know this, this is more a general FYI than directed at you)

Read the top 25 from C&D that I posted. People aren't buying cars as much as they're buying SUVs. They're chasing the market, correctly. Ford's best selling vehicles are the F150, Explorer, Escape, then Fusion. Fusion used to be #2. Why keep pouring resources into declining markets?

(it stinks, as a car guy. I have a fun car. I worry how long I'll be able to buy one)

As a mechanical engineering student (who had taken wood shop, and auto shop, props to high school!) I was drafted by my fraternity to rebuild the fire escape to pass code. Went to Fingerle for the fire treated lumber, they looked over my hand sketches, made suggestions, and really made the project a success. Sad to see it go, but hopefully the payout helps everyone invovled.

M's defense was definitely better at home, as they could wear white gloves and get grabby without the refs noticing. Brian pointed out a couple of instances, but the secondary definitely wore white gloves against Wisconsin and Penn State.

I'm hoping that with football season over some of these games actually get televised. BTN has like 4 channels in Chicago (Alternates for different football games), why not use them for Hockey?

I know, right? Hockey makes money, doesn't it?

Z got a "Hook and Hold" flagrant 1, where you loop your arm around someone's arm and tug. It's a point of emphasis this year for officials to look for.

Nova guy was issued a regular personal foul for the shove. Iggy was not penalized.

Best nickname on the team. I call him "Woods" 'cause he brings the wood.

Yeah, I fucked up MSU's couch.

I was right there with you, I loved hockey fights as a thing. But when 3 enforcers committed suicide the same summer I had to change my tune. The players got bigger, stronger, and trained with boxers. It wasn't just the two biggest guys on a team brawling anymore.

As a goalie, I lament that at 5'11" I was already "too small" to play D1, not that I was good enough to. #TinyJesus forever.  

10/26/2018 - 11:35am The thing that kills me…

The thing that kills me about the NFL is the lack of strategic diversity. Every team (seems to, and I'm MGoBlog Football Knowledgeable) runs the same plays, has the same goals, and most games seem to be coin flips. There's some interesting stuff out there, but no Georgia Tech's just doing crazy stuff. The Wildcat was a rare exception to this in my mind.

Hosting a housewarming party since we moved. Had to schedule it for the bye week since she's such a stressed out fan, we often watch Michigan games at home to deal with the stress better than we would in public.

Gotta figure out the bluetooth on the new soundbar so that we can have music on for the party and football on the TV muted.
