"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Buying shoes for the kids yesterday which was right next door to a Rally House (a chain sports apparel store for those who don't know) in Grandville. They're having a sale of 50% off all UM Adidas apparel. Their sign said the sale was in store and on-line. it's worth checking out, they have a pretty big selection and still a lot in stock at that location.
Just saw an article in the Daily about new UofM initiatives to curb alcohol abuse.
As part of the plan:
The University will also pilot a program to alert the parents of first-year-students who incur a second alcohol or drug violation.
Am curious the thoughts of the board on this new initiative. I personally feel kind of odd about this. Seems a bit intrusive and kind of a nanny state thing. Personally, I don't drink, other than a toast at a wedding or the like, so something like this wouldn't impact me. Still, isn't college a place where students start to learn to take ownership for their own behavior? Not sure what to think.
Well, next Tuesday is the middle of game week, so this is the final TCT for the year.
I've been racking my brain trying to come up with a good thread topic, but I don't have much besides the Dave Brandon hate and the Rutgers embarrasement, and of course HARBAUGH.
So, simple question, finances don't matter - you get TWO cars forever. One for you/one for the spouse/2 to share. Figure they're always immaculate and someoe else is footing the bill for gas, insurance, repairs, etc. Remember - you don't get to trade these 2 in. If you both end up with Mazda Miatas I hope you're not planning to haul the kids around. Or live in the snow...
What are your 2 cars for the rest of your life?
This afternoon Drew & Marc on 105.1 spent quite a bit of the show discussing John Bacon's latest book. Including references throughout the show.
You can listen here LINK
Additionally they mentioned Bacon will be live in studio tomorrow, but I don't know the time. They may not be the most sportscentric show on the air but they both like Michigan. Marc is an Alum and based on some comments it seems he's a regular here on the blog but I don't know if he posts.
Marc if you are on here, what time will Bacon be on the show tomorrow?
Hi all, I'm a relative newcomer to the mgoblog world, and I have been thoroughly impressed since joining last winter. I just want to give a shout out of thanks to the mods (and the self moderating instincts of the whole community) for keeping things focused without stifling random fun threads during the summer lull in sports news. Also, I want to take a moment to thank Brian, Ace. Seth & co. for keeping content flowing for the past 6 months. Mgoblog is truly a unique corner of the Internet. I'm really looking forward to being here this year for football / basketball season! Anyone else care to shout out some appreciation?
Edit: This is also a great thread for razzing me about how I am a brown nosers. Y'all are the best. Get creative and bring out your GIFS!
I've self-published my first book for Kindle. It's a thriller titled Founders' Keeper. Cover and synopsis are below.
The first 30 days are critical to its success or failure. If you enjoy these types of books, I'd appreciate the support from fellow UM grads/fans. Thanks for your help.
Four are dead in five days, including a young U.S. senator. The methods of execution are varied and horrific, and the messages left behind point to a serial killer obsessed with the United States Constitution and the nation's Founding Fathers.
The FBI assigns its best man to the investigation. But while Special Agent David Yerxa chases those responsible for the murders, his own demons are chasing him.
With the help of his father - semi-retired FBI legend Martin Yerxa - David must wrestle with ghosts, both past and present, in order to untangle the murderer's motives, solve a mystery, and prevent a national catastrophe.
