at least it's not just us?
Not my normal thing, but I want U-M people to bring as much acclaim back to the University as possible, and tonight, Michelle Chamuel who went to U-M and played in Ann Arbor bands My Dear Disco/Ella Riot is in the final tonight and can win with the most votes. I wouldn't bother posting as she advanced, but since she got there on her own, we'll get more pub for this than a B1G best helmet poll.
Some background and classmate commentary-
And U-M covering it-
Neg this thread if you want. I won't blame anyone. But if there's anyone up late drinking tonight, bored, and likes to see Michigan win in everything from football to ice dancing, then this is for U-M to stuff te ballots again. You can vote ten times for each method. Till 10am tomorrow.
Text 2 to 8642 (though that hasn't been always working)

You can also buy on iTunes, but I'm not really thinking that's this crowd. (Though look up on YouTube her actual band music; it's pretty cool).
I just came across a Chronicle article talking about amateurism and the NCAA for "Super division 1" schools. I thought it was an interesting read and wanted to pass it along.
Spoiler alert...this author has some even more radical suggestions than what I've seen on this blog. Enjoy
Now that all of Michigan's sports are finished for the 2012-2013 year, and the board is rather slow, I figured I would ask all of the MGoBloggers what their favorite non-revenue sports to go to are. I personally have been to a few Volleyball games and found those to be exciting and a good atmosphere. Some of the Women's Basketball games, against better opponents, were fun to go. So, MGoBlog, what is/are your favorite non-revenue sports to go. Include atmosphere, price, team relevance, or whatever in your reasoning.
Today was the Gratiot cruise and I have never seen a car related thread on here, so I figured I would make one. Anybody go? If not, anybody have a car they want to share? I didn't get to go because my throwout bearing took a crap on me yesterday.
Here is my baby.
P.S. ~ If you are thread snob and want to complain, keep it to yourself.
My in-laws' computer is on the verge of dying, and I'm trying to help make sure they don't lose all their files if this happens before they're able to get a replacement computer. They are getting an external hard drive to back up all of their files to, but they are pretty computer illiterate, so I'm going to need to help them with the process. Since they are in northern Michigan and I'm in Ohio, I'll need some sort of remote desktop service so I can connect to their desktop. I'm looking for something that is free (no biggie) and requires no downloads (that's where I'm not so sure)? I thought I had heard of totally web-based services like this, but I haven't been able to find one - maybe I'm mistaken? I use TeamViewer extensively where I work, but that's no good for this since that would require a download. If it comes down to it, I suppose we'll just have to work through a download, but I would prefer to avoid that if an alternative exists.
Background: Much has been made about Xbox One's restrictive game DRM(Digital Rights Management) wherein games can be shared with exactly one friend(by code or login? I'm not sure), can only be resold through licensed retailers, and perhaps most offensively if you do not authenticate your XBOX online every 24 hours it becomes one ugly paper weight(till you log in again). Xbox fans are desperately clinging to the idea that their launch exclusives are better...
While Sony's own exclusives dont look too shabby...
Making this argument both premature and subjective. It's always been this way. Gears of War/Halo vs God of War/Uncharted. So what do we KNOW? Playstation 4 will have faster DDR5 RAM. Playstation 4 will have a better graphics card. http://reviews.cnet.com/ps4/
Xbox One will have Kinect. http://reviews.cnet.com/microsoft-xbox-one/
Playstation 4 has a gamepad with a motion element and a touchpad. I'm guessing controller two isn't going to be cheap. Xbox will have a broadcast cable passthrough(why?) but no DVR funcionality. Playstation 4 will have no restrictive DRM, and will be playable with or without an internet connection. Xbox One will cost $499. Playstation 4 will cost $399. I already preordered mine. What say you all?
