Radio Programming Note
Great Brain......crash yet another web-site with your awesome "hit levels" and "traffic rates".
Would love to see the traffic to the WTKA site after you posted this...
(EDIT - Site back up about 4:06 EDT)
who is Brain and does he know "Brian," the mystery blogger who goes bump in the night?
I don't live in the Mitten - but it is a RIOT hearing MSU law school advertise on TKA.
Can't believe that they really refer to Sparty as a "powerhouse" academic institution.
Biggest home run threat since Tyrone Wheatley, IMO
Butch Woolfolk, Tony Boles and Tyrone Wheatley were home run threats. Denard will not be on the bench waiting on being QB. When Devin Gardner and C. Jones comes in next year D. Rob will be on the field somehow. OMG that kid is fast!
Any archive available?
Woah, that is the worst law school commercial EVAR.
MSU law for the epic, sounds like a rambling 19 year old doing your commercial, fail.
... Sparty bought the Detroit College of Law and moved it up to Lansing: Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels.
Most of the better law schools do not need to advertise on the radio. Sparty Law, Cooley, and Toledo buy airtime formerly the province of car dealers and swanky restaurants.
You will meet some of these grads when you least expect it, usually after saying something like "Hey Waiter."
Not sure of your background, but I went to U of M undergrad and U of M Law and practice in Chicago, so I feel relatively qualified to comment on this. I know good attorneys who went to MSU law and John Marshall in Chicago, which is ranked in the same tier as Toledo and MSU. Statistically, yes, their LSAT scores, bar passage rates, and aggregate "numbers" aren't as high, but still, like I said, I personally know solid attorneys who went to these schools. I also know kids I went to law school with at U of M who are very academically intelligent, but I wouldn't want to be my lawyer, especially not in litigation or anything involving interpersonal skills.
Further, the comment about meeting some of these grads when you least expect it, etc...uhh, yeah, that's a ton of young lawyers right now- including an inordinate amount of grads of U of M Law, which is top 10 nationally. (Luckily, I haven't met that fate...knock on wood. Jesus, knock on wood.)
Sorry, just felt like I needed to stick up for my colleagues. Feel free to negbang me if I look like a douche talking from a high horse.
I'm a massive advocate for overhaul of nations universities, changing the focus from prestige to actually helping people. College is what you make it.... be it Michigan or Washtenaw Community.
Don't get me wrong- I went to law school there because I knew where it would get me. I was and am working within the framework of the system that is currently in place. However, like I said, I know good lawyers who I'd rather work with/be friends with who went to "lower" law schools. I also know a lot of really dumb people who went to those schools, too. I mean, it's a mixed bag, and there are morons at "great" schools and bright achievers at "lower tier" schools.
Although I will say this: Some of the kids in my law school class at U of M were the most intelligent people I've ever encountered and blew my mind. The professors, also, tend to be incredibly incredibly (yes, two "incrediblies") intelligent and the tops of their field. I think of myself as a regular dude who's (fortunately) good at standardized tests, and I must admit, I was intimidated by many of the people there from an academic standpoint. Not from a social one, though.
Will a podcast of this be out?
Loved the in depth discussion of Michigan football by someone who follows the program full time and wasn't afraid of talking about formations.
thanks brian, you helped me get through 2 hours of work.
Someone should tell someone at WTKA that it's not a podcast if all you can do is stream it in from your browser.
