"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
Michigan will open the labs today
Gov. Rick Snyder, University of Michigan Mark Schlissel and other will speak at the grand opening Friday morning.
here is a tour:
"This facility will enable groundbreaking experiments by our faculty and students, resulting in landmark advances at the interface of mechanical engineering and nanoscience. We look forward to watching this progress unfold," said David Munson, the Robert J. Vlasic Dean of Engineering.
I know it stinks that our football team isn't doing great right now -but the school (which is the important thing) is doing great!
Leaders and Best - Go Blue!
I thought that this little "story" on Mental Floss (one of the greatest websites there is, by the way) might be of some interest to at least a good portion of folks here. I'm not from Michigan, nor do I live there, but I find myself there often enough in the fall.
Anyway...enjoy this distraction from the playing field for a few seconds.
More specifically, Oakland County, Waterford/West Bloomfield/Bloomfield/Farmington Hills area.
With the State game going on at the same time as ours, and the fact that we suck and they're good, I fully expect the turnout at these bars to be like 90% State fans 10% us. I'd prefer to watch the game somewhere there's not an overwhelming number of those mouthbreathers, and that will have the sound turned on to our game.
So far I called the Buffalo Wild Wings on 14 and Orchard Lake and they don't know what they're doing. They theoretically can split the sound but not sure how that would work in reality. They also have a back room so maybe if some other Michigan fans show up they can just throw us all back there.
Anyways, if anyone knows any better options that'd be super.
"He wasn't a highly-sought commodity, and his salary at San Diego had been $700,000. Brandon's crackerjack negotiating skills got Hoke for a bargain-basement price of just shy of $3 million a year. Mary Sue Coleman, then the university president, pulled down a bit more than $600,000, as the highest-paid president in the university's history."
The author goes on to quote Jonathan Chait: "I would really like to see an economics textbook try to explain the negotiating dynamic here."
I, for one, am going to the Michigan game this Saturday night; driving from goddamned Indiana tomorrow (yup, tickets purchased a LONG time ago...).
I have no clue what to expect. Win or lose, bleed maize and blue forever. My dad, brother, and I will be rooting like hell for the Wolverines. Though the season
may be is lost, the record books don't give a shit. Fuck ND, Michigan needs the highest win % back!!! / MichiganArrogance
Fuck. I am drunk. Sue me. GO DEVIN GARDNER. GO JAKE RYAN. SHIT, GO WILL HAGERUP! GO BLUE!!!!!!
MLive spoke with Don Canham's widow and it's obvious she's not happy with what's happening at Michigan.
Recently, the widow of the “father of modern college athletics directors” has begun to add her voice to the chorus expressing concern that the powerhouse built by Canham is in jeopardy of losing its luster.
“I’m just devastated that his lifetime at the school—he was there for 50 years as a student, a coach and an athletic director—to see that his legacy is going down the drain, that’s what I’m angry about,” Margaret Canham-Keeley said.
It's worth a read to see that even Canham, who was an innovator his time, got some pushback but obviously ended up being a pioneer as an athletic director.
