I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Anyone else grow up in Michigan/Detroit?

NBA Draft deadline: Whose stock is up, whose is down in college basketball

Stock up
Michigan State Spartans
We've got a lot of gainers listed here, but Michigan State is a cut above because it has the most well-regarded player all of the guys who opted to come back to school. Miles Bridges likely would have been a top-15 pick, yet he'll be a Sparty sophomore and should almost certainly be a preseason First Team All-American. Michigan State is now a preseason top-three team due to having the best foursome of sophomores in college basketball: Cassius Winston, Josh Langford and Nick Ward will be back in the fold too. After an up-and-down year last season, Michigan State will enter 2017-18 with Final Four goals.

Brackets, first-round matchups announced for PK80 Invitational

As one of the 16 schools taking part in the event to honor Nike co-founder Phil Knight and his 80th birthday, Michigan State opens with Georgetown on Nov. 23, which is Thanksgiving Day. The participating programs are split into two separate eight-team tournaments. Also in MSU's bracket are UConn, Oregon, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Portland and North Carolina. The Spartans will play either UConn or Oregon in its second game and could play North Carolina in the final.

Michigan State is 1-1 all-time against Georgetown, beating the Hoyas 80-68 in 1986 and more recently falling 64-60 in February 2014

I'd be happy if he can just play a couple minutes each game without turning the ball over. As you see, the bar is set very high.

I like Thanksgiving hoops. I'll be at my in-laws so it will give me a chance to hide out. BTW, lose to UNC in the final.

There was a time when those two would be the featured teams in the Spartan Cutlass Classic. And crowd enthusiasm levels would reach heights not heard since Sally Farmbottom whooped it up after she got three dryers in a row at the village laundromat.

Bilas: MSU hoops can ‘make a run at the whole thing’

It’s enough that has Bilas thinking big things are set to happen in East Lansing.

“If everybody is healthy and they get great guard play,” Bilas said. “Winston is coming back and he’s a special player. (Tum Tum) Nairn is a coming back and he’s a great leader. They lost a few things, but to have so many quality players back and have them healthy … Langford is back, too. So you got so many guys coming back that have had experience and have been through it and I think Michigan State has got to be confident that personnel-wise they’re not gonna be short-handed against anybody in numbers and in talent.”

I think they would use the schollie if they felt there was an improvement to be made. They must not feel that player is out there.

Realistically it would seem pretty hard to recruit someone in right now to displace a Jr in the depth chart.

Were there a lot of quality 2/3 players in the 2017 class available then, that we had a legit shot at getting? I mean, it's easy to say we should have just grabbed a quality 2/3, right?

Do you have some names?

Maybe he was saving that scholarship for Bowen.

Maybe 3 months was the point he wrote off Bowen. Maybe it was 5 months and he held out hope for another 2 months. Tough for me to say. I just know the end result is that he got no one. And yes I think Izzo obviously has the clout to land a quality wing. Saving it for Bowen isn't a valid excuse when Bowen never came here. It is a miscalculation.
