I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
Here is Karan's profile and Hudl film. I'm rather vested as I've mentored and coached the kid for 3 years but if your'e looking for a kid that fits the "Michigan Man" mold. Here he is. 4.0 student works a nursing home and does other community service. Very coachable...natural leader and every other set of kind words you can piece together. Talked to Coach Singletary about him today and sent his stuff to Coach Wheatley. Hopefully things move quickly. He is an Iowa commit with Florida and Notre Dame pushing hard in this final week. Has offers from half the SEC....Arizona etc.
Jay Feely was just on the Jim Rome Show talking about the time he was the subject of a "Saturday Night Live" skit in 2005. I had never seen this before.
Tom Brady, of course, has hosted SNL, and he was parodied this past Saturday for his press conference:
Which leads me to ask: Have any other former Wolverines made it into an SNL skit? Harbaugh HAD to have been on there, right?
I posted this question as a comment on another post about a week ago but it was buried.
What are your opionions on the lack of Michigan memorabilia (shirts, hats, etc.) with a Wolverine on them? The only wolverine I ever see these days is the retro one with the stiff upper lip wearing a hat. It seems like through the 70's and 80's, the wolverine was a lot more prevelant on Michigan shirts. What happened!? I, for one, think the wolverine is awesome and should be more widely used.
To give you an example, the wolverine on top of the block M in my icon photo is along the lines of what I'm talking about.
Spin off question.. Do you own a piece of retro Michigan clothing that you still hold dear because of it's uniqueness?
(BTW- This is my first post, so take it easy. Thanks!)
I asked a question if anyone had a calendar of recruiting schedules and MGo man Ken found this one on the NCAA site. Just worth posting to everyone to get ahead of "why isn't Harbaugh in Roquan Smith's home today??" next Tuesday. Everything is over but the faxes this Sunday at midnight. That surprised me, I thought Monday and Tuesday would be open game. So we will have a dearth of news and lots of rumor mongering next Mon/Tue but nothing concrete in terms of visits.
I also was unaware there is something called "dead periods" that are bracketed within "quiet periods" - in the quiet periods you can still text/direct message/call once a week TO the recruit (apparently recruit can call you as many times as they wish). Dead period is nothing.
And if interested the next open season to go hard at the 2016s begins April 15th and ends May 30th.* So hopefully we can lock down 5-7 quality dudes including a QB in that time frame to help recruit next fall. Next evaluation period after that begins Sept 1 but coaches will be busy then with other pursuits.
*every Sunday in April/May is a quiet period.
Jay Harbaugh's story about his dad using Gatorade with breakfast cereal, presented with a lack of milk that day, led to the UM Alumni Association creating the Jim Harbaugh Breakfast Challenge -- getting students to video themselves doing the same thing.
It's now reached Mike and Mike. Greenie challenged Golic to do it, and of course when it comes to stupid food challenges, Golic is all over it.
He'll be eating Froot Loops with Blue gatorade this morning.
