The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
The National Pork Board took offense to ThinkGeek.com's canned unicorn meat. So did my daughter, but for entirely different reasons.
I was up to Ann Arbor to see a friend, and I just happened to see this letter blow out of an open window on campus. I was going to return it, but after reading it, I thought you all should know.

Main point: The skills one uses to solve problems are the same as those one uses to know whether or not one's solution is correct. In other words, smart people know they're correct and idiots don't know they're being stupid.
So, I love to read and between news, sports, and of course mgoblog, I read whatever book strikes my fancy. But I'm stuck and don't have a book "on deck" like I usually do.

CNN has a Q and A up with an editor who compiled a book of rejection letters. In it, he says his favorite rejection letter is from a student who applied to Princeton's "Law School", only to be told that Princeton didn't have a law school.
So, its all very innoculous, but if you look at the pictures (#7), you actually get to see the rejection letter. The address? 1805 Washtenaw, Ann Arbor, MI. The guy was a Michigan alum.
He did get into Harvard Law though, so the story isn't all bad.

"That's 140,000 college degrees," she told The Chronicle. "Imagine three Ohio State Universities' worth of graduates, which is huge in American higher education."
