"This is really important to be here," Lewan said. "I'm here to give back and help out my teammate."
"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.
MSU loses soundly; OSU losing soundly; we are trounced. Elsewhere, B1G teams lose or sneak past weak small-conference squads. The onslaught from the critics is going to be merciless tomorrow. I'm not sure there's been a weekend this humiliating that I can remember.
I can't believe I am rooting for an OSU miracle at this late hour to salvage the conference's reputation.
Final wallpaper until Notre Dame and probably the last "schedule"-themed wallpaper I will do until basketball season. I was working on honing some skills creating "embroidered" logos and decided to give the ol' vintage wolverine logo a go. I like how it turned out (it actually kind of looks embroidered!) and I think it may fit the taste of MGoBlog a bit more than my previous schedule wallpaper.
