this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Hey, it's actually tuesday!
Per a great suggestion from "A Different Jason" this week let's get the hate out there. What car (s) do you absolutely HATE? Maybe you bought the wrong vehicle, maybe that rental you had for a week was the worst thing ever, maybe that car just has a stupid look on its stupid car face.
Let's hear the hate. The less rational the better.
Piggybacking ThadMattasgoblin's 60's music post here because I wanted to talk music but I don't in general give a flip about the 60s music-wise. Embed live versions of your choices if you can. Check the first post for my contributions.
Slightly on-topic given our Brandon debacle...
Earlier this summer, reports suggested Patterson was facing backlash from some Texas boosters who felt he was alienating the school’s coaches and fans. A report from HornsDigest.com said some prominent boosters felt Patterson was prioritizing money over athletes and coaches, “misleading football season ticket holders” and “alienating longtime donors as well as faculty and staff.”
The Morning News report on Wednesday said Patterson had not yet “reached the point of no return” with university president Greg Fenves, who replaced Bill Powers in June. Fenves and Patterson are scheduled to talk again on Friday as part of regularly scheduled meetings; according to the report, Fenves has in previous meetings “told Patterson of the need to change an approach that some see as impersonal or even arrogant.”
I didn't want to clutter the board yesterday after the Used Car Advice thread was posted. We need room to discuss every tweet!
That said, keeping it simple this week while acknowledging the purists:
Can you drive a standard? What did you learn on? Do you own one now?
If you've ever wanted to own a lighthouse, now is the time. Three Michigan lighthouses are currently for sale. Get our your checkbooks and start bidding. There are a few strings attached, though. They must be bought by a nonprofit organization, you do not get ownership or rights to any land under the lighthouse, and you are required to maintain the lighthouse.
The current bids are $5,000 for two of the lighthouses and $10,000 for the other. One is in lake Michigan: Ile aux Galets which is between the shore and Beaver Island. The other two are in lake Huron: Gravelly Shoal which is 5 miles from Aux Gres Twp, and Spectacle Reef, which is 11 miles from Bois Blanc Island.
