this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
[UPDATE 8/26/2014 from Seth:]
While the ticket spreadsheet was awesome for its time, we've known for some time that it's subject to abuse, and more likely to be damaged the more our community has grown. We've been on the lookout for some way to add a layer of security that's still free on both ends. Now we have that!
Go here: http://www.tiqiq.com/sellerdirect and sign in with your Facebook account. Then list your tickets, put MGoBlog somewhere in your description if you like, then copy the link to your tickets and paste on the spreadsheet.
Nobody's forced to use that system. This is just a protection for sellers so their price can't be changed, and for buyers so they know they're dealing with a real human with a name and pictures of their cat.
To go along with the 'more informative headlines' theme, this thread will hopefully get set as a sticky. I have made a spreadsheet listing all people selling and looking for tickets.. http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Avnckx2kNv9GdGVPQXBQMDZQdFJ4RTJS... Basketball season is here.. I've started up a new sheet in the document for basketball. Ive made the permissions open to anyone to edit, so we'll try the trust method for a while until someone abuses. Feel free to post what you are looking for or selling. If it gets abused, I'll go back to the method of requiring someone to email me and then posting.
If it wasn't for UNLV, and instead of UNLV Michigan had, say, a UCF type team (which is coming in 2016, look out), M's schedule might be the toughest this season, but UNLV should provide a major breather.
Utah and BYU are physical, tough tests and Michigan will have to score to beat Oregon State (which hopefully won't be like scaling a mountain given Oregon State's defense).
It's July filler but what else are we going to do right now you guys
If I'm late to the party on noticing the extent of startups in A2 then so be it.
But I thought it was very cool and wanted to share.
A lot of interesting businesses are establishing themselves in A2 who are making products and solutions to real, global business problems.
Michigan and Ann Arbor should be proud of this trend.
Well folks the Freshman from the 2015 class just recieve there numbers Brian Cole and Zack Malzone already chosen there numbers 12 and 81 . As Dick Vital always says here's the diper dandys chosen numbers
QB Zack Gentry-10(Tom Brady's old number ,no sweat right)
DE/LB Reuben Jones-4(Usaually and offensive player gets number 4 but Deveon Smith has that number on the offensive side of the ball)

K Andrew David-16( Denard enough said)
OL Jon Runyan Jr-75( Jon Sr wore 69 but Jon Jr wanted to keep 75)
OL Grant Newsom - 77( Legendary Number worn by Jake Long and recently Taylor Lewan)
MOD EDIT - The title made my head hurt. I will invite the OP to do the remainder of the cleanup, should they choose to do so. Also, for those of you wondering why this bears a vague resemblence to a writeup Steve Lorenz did for Rivals, it is because this is a transcribed (and uncited sadly) version of that writeup. - LSA
Ok, so, just for fun, I'm doing a series of wallpapers based on movie posters. If you recall, last year I turned Jake Ryan into Captain America. This year I'm starting out with a remake of the Skyfall poster and featuring Jake Butt. If for no other reason than it's fun to say "Butt, Jake Butt." Anyway, I like how it turned out, but I'd love some constructive criticism and suggestions for movie posters to recreate with Michigan favorites. Enjoy!
