"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."
It's a milestone, so please join me in wishing a happy 70th birthday to Lloyd Henry Carr, Jr.
Aggressive turkey on North Campus has attacked passers by and has attempted to board buses
"He's also created a traffic hazard because apparently he likes to lay down in the middle of the road and not move. It can be very difficult for the buses to get around him."
Forgive me if this has been asked and answered, but is there any speculation on whether Harbaugh will have an open-to-the-public practice at the Big House, like Hoke did last year?
Last year's event was both wonderful and depressing. It was wonderful to spend a hot summer evening at the stadium, but it was depressing to have it confirmed that our offense was going to be reeeeeeeally, reeeeeeeally bad.
I'm kind of doubting Harbaugh will do this, but any insights from the board? Did he ever have a public practice at Stanford?
Michigan defensive lineman Brian Mone has been named to the Polynesian College Football Player of the Year Watch List. Most people probably have not heard of the award because it's only in its second year, but those who follow college football have definitely heard of the player who received the inaugural award: Marcus Mariota. Mone is one of 36 players selected to the watch list, and is one of only two who play football east of the Mississippi.
OK, so I'm too busy to really parse the data, but here's a link to view the spreadsheet.
Of those with kids: 69 people's kids play football, 57 dont.
Future parents: 150 would allow their kids to play, 76 would not. I think this is more "won't allow" than expected.
Now, a few issues with the data. First, I thought that I asked the wrong question. People were asked IF their kids played football, but not if they were allowed to and chose not to play. Blame the survey setter-upper. Second, this is also very much a non-random sample. Many more future parents responded compared to actual parents.
Things that could be interesting: Age range - are there splits of opinion between 30+ and <30 year olds? What about the age of kids? There's more data to analyze, someone who makes fancy charts go ahead and do that.
Thanks to all who responded
