there would have to be some to wash away
I recently got married and the wife and I decided instead of getting each other wedding presents we would take a little trip to AA.
Neither of us went to Michigan, but I was one of the lucky ones that has been brain washed since birth. She, unfortunatly, grew up an tOSU fan. After the '08 Wisconsin game, which was her first, it did not take alot of persuasion to convert her. I am sad to admit, but now she is more of a rabid Wolverine fan than myself.
The reason for this post is to ask for a little help from my MGOBLOG bretheren. I have only been to games in AA and have never ventured to campus. I here it is one of the most beautiful in the country, and from what I have seen in pictures it is. The farthest I have made it into AA is State Street and would love to see the home of my beloved Wolverines in more extensive detail.
We will be attending the Wiscky game (for sentimental reasons of course) and will be in AA Friday night. If anyone could suggest good hotels, bars, restuarants, and entertainment for Friday and Saturday it would be very much appreciated.
Thanks and Go Blue!
When poop hit the fan last year and when Molk went down, David had a tough postion to fill. Given the circumstances, i thought he played pretty well and was a great team player. My randomness today led me to do some research and I exhausted myself typing his name in google:
An article on him being an english major:
Wkipedia says he was cut by the cardinals. Anybody have anymore information on him?
It was just a matter of time (until renovations were completed), but the Fathead Michigan Stadium Mural is Finally Here!!
Here is the description via fathead.com
About Michigan Stadium: Nicknamed "The Big House", Michigan Stadium was built in 1927 with an original capacity of 72,000. After the most recent extensive renovation, Michigan Stadium now has an official capacity of 109,901, making it the largest stadium in the United States. On September 4, 2010, the Wolverines played the Connecticut Huskies and the attendance was 113,090, which set the modern attendance record in college football history.
It appears that this is a photo from the Connecticut game. Hopefully this is just one angle of many that they will have in stock because I personally think they cut us short on this one. I would much rather have a daylight aerial photo than the half-hearted photo you see below. The aerial photo will at least have the student section block M and would obviously include the whole stadium. Nonetheless, it still looks great and will look great in any bar. I can't wait for a night version after the lights are put in.
At the end of an article defending the Alabama Medical Scholarships, there's the following line:
The report does not mention the fact that football scholarships are good for one year and then are renewable. It is a common misconception that scholarships are four-year deals between schools and student-athletes.
Is this true? As far as I can tell, per NCAA regulations it is, but there must be more to it. Can someone shed some light on this, otherwise I don't see the need to offer medical scholarships or make players transfer, you could just "cut" them. Obviously I'm missing something.
