Have nipples. That is all.
OT: Fred Jackson is on my Flight
Oh, you can milk just about anything with nipples.
I have nipples. Could you milk me?
They're still snakes on the plane, only they're faster.
you should give it up for Fred.
I think I like it better without the subject line.
"Like a B-2 bomber crossed with a eagle and a Gulfstream 6. But faster."
You're on the Concorde, right? Cause if you're with Fred you must be.
Ask him about Rawls improvement from freshman year till spring practice.
Picture or I don't believe it
Ask him if his peanuts taste like crunchewy nuggets of ambrosia only heavenlier and with salty goodness? Then ask him his opinion of your bicep.
I need MOAR.
Pinky promise him that you can keep a secret and then ask him if Shallman is really really not going to be a fullback.
Seriously, ask him if he thought Rich Rodriguez was a Michigan man or just an interloper.
Ask him if he can write my Letter of Rec for Ross B School.
"Surprise! Two blog posts in one week! This is a quick one. I received a great question from one of the attendees of our Preview Day last week. He mentioned that he had gotten to know and build relationships with many of our ambassadors and wondered whether he should ask them for a rec letter. While we encourage prospective students to connect with our students and alums to get to know what we're about, we don't recommend asking them to send us a note of endorsement after a few emails, phone conversations, or a chat in the Wintergarden.
The recommendation letters that are most helpful to us are the ones we ask for in the application (generally, from your supervisors) since they will have a perspective on you formed over a longer period of time through a variety of interactions.
You'll have an opportunity to demonstrate your fit through the interview. Our interviews are conducted by MBA2s and alumni who understand and love the culture of our school. The interview is the best point in the process to get the student/alumni endorsement you hoped to get."
I know you're being a smartass, but for what it's worth, get a couple of current/former bosses who really like your work to recommend you. I got great, very personal recommendations from mine and I think it helped me out.
Actually very helpful. I was being smart but I agree. I remember you'd posted about being admitted so I trust your input. Are you done or just through your first year? Hows the atmosphere? Ultra competitive or collaborative? Are you looking to go into finance?
Hey, sorry I didn't get back to this page sooner. I'll try to ping you the next time I see you post. Unfortunately, I'm busy and not on the site much anymore.
I'm on my internship now and had a great first year. Ross is essentially everything it's advertised to be by admissions. It's a very collaborative place to learn, although finance is much more competitive. They pretty much start from day one and spend most weekends in NYC until they get an internship. For what it's worth, at least five people got internships at Goldman this summer, so I assume a similar number are going to other major firms. Of the two I know personally, one had no finance background going into school, so it is an area you can move into.
Let me know if you want to talk and I'll shoot you an email.
I get all of my breaking news from MGoBlog. CNN and Fox News haven't sniffed this one out yet!
Question for Coach Jackson: It's late in the 4th quarter against OSU. 3rd down and 1.5 yards to go. We're down by 6, ball on the Buckeye 15 yard line. We need to convert. Who do you hand if off to (passing is not an option here)? Hart? Perry? Timmy B? Wheatley? Healthy Minor?
great question ....tony boles
I loved me some Tony Boles carrying the rock. Smooth as silk running the ball. Damn injuries ruined what could've been a stellar UM career.
IIRC, Boles and Tripp Welbourne had their careers effectively ended by the turf in Minnesota.
id go with Vincent Smith short yardage back.
The Turf Monster at the old Metrodome in Minneapolis was a disaster. Visible corners of sections coming up in spots.
Two games, two years apart -- brutal. The personalized "UTRIPPIN" license plate Welbourne had on his 300Z took on a sad meaning after that.
....that Boles, in his prime, was a more elusive version of Barry Sanders, but also faster.
Tony Boles ran digitally, like a Frogger video game. One moment he was in one lane, the next moment he was in another lane, the next moment he was in another. And he never lost speed doing it.
My alltime favorite running back at Michigan, and that's saying something.
Now that' a good idea!
Does Fred Jackson ever plan to share his wonderful hyperboles in some sort of compilation, like Plato's Dialogues only more Michigan?
"Fred, do you like movies about gladiators?"
"Fred, do you ever hang around a gymnasium?"
him if he's thirsty.
if he has ever been to the mile high club
has so much win - thanks for the laugh
You're all fools missing the obvious questions. Where is he going or where is he coming from? Which potential recruit has he been talking to or looking at?
Ask him if he's met Herm yet. Because he needs to.
You are the man, Herm.
Ask him to evaluate things....anything really. I just want to know if he views everyday things like he does running backs.
flight perchance going to Virginia? maybe the Hermitage area?
Hes flying coach
he was going to see Derrik Green and come back with a commitment.
The flight attendants will soon tire of fetching him drink after drink.
I hate that I can't upvote past 5.
If you want to catch some ZZZZ's ask him who the best RB ever to play at Michigan was.
Before you bring the plane down.
Seriously, though, where are you headed? Any recruiting targets in that locale?
It's like Air Force One mixed with a Stealth Fighter Jet, only fast.
the F-117. The F-22 is much faster steel marble. Not sure about the F-35.
Coach Jackson identifies the most tremendous in-flight snack of his career served by an electric and smoking hot flight attendant. The flight of the plane is so smooth that the ginger ale doesn't even bubble. If Bo Schembechler were to come back from the dead he would be on this and only this plane.
Surely you can't be serious.
And don't call me Shirley.
Offer him a beverage and see if his thirst can be quenched.
This is the perfect question. That story about him having 1 sip from 3 different drinks is mind boggling.
Ask him if he's Fred Jackson
Ask him if he can smell what the rock.... Is cookin.
I think Tripp Welbourne injured his knee in the Big House on Senior Day not in Minnesota. Also I think that was the last game played with an astroturf field in Michigan Stadium. Tripp is my all time favorite Michigan safety, with a close second being Daydrion Taylor. It is too bad that both of their careers at Michigan ended with career ending/altering injuries.
We seemed to lose a player every other year up there. Might have been where Boles was hurt too.
What I would ask him:
1. Is there a specific style of back that you are looking to feature in michigan's offense over the next few years (post fitz)? Big back, scat back, etc?
2. Of the current backs, who do you see as the primary back-up to fitz? Is it a thumper like Rawls or a speedster like Hayes?
3. Best rb you ever coached?
Ask if he has ever seen a RB not look like Michigan RB.
"What was Britney thinking?!"
I heard the pilot was like sulley but with better depth perception and reflexes
where are you going, where have you been?
When I used to box I had a fight in Vegas I once sat next to Chuck Daily on a flight out there from Detroit.
