Thanks for bringing back some memories, WD. I do have panaromic photos from the parade somewhere in my college box of stuff. Someday I should digitize them to share.

I went through the engineering program in the 90s and can also suggest engineering classes as the hardest at UM. However, it seemed like the ChemE majors had it the worst, so I will go with whatever ChemE majors consider the toughest in their curriculum.

If the stadium goes through another renovation like this, I would expect the video display to be upgraded to a larger, wider version.

Harbaugh has really united the fanbase. He's going as a guest of a Republican and a Democrat. I'd love to see Obama end the address by saying "Whooooooo's got it better than us?!"

Another politician pandering to the crowd and trying to take even a little bit of credit for anything successful. They must teach this behavior in politician class.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||The biggest factor IMO in||
The biggest factor IMO in recuiting has been caused by scholarship limits imposed by the NCAA. More than 30 years ago, college football coaches had more margin for error being able to offer unlimited number of scholarships. That has been reduced to a limit of 105, then 95, and now a limit of 85 for Divsion I football. More than 30 years ago, elite programs had an ample stockpile of talent and could maintain their dominance and even go on 47 game winning streaks. Now you can't just stockpile talent anymore (Alabama and Ohio State maybe being the exceptions), thus recruiting has become even more important.

Another notable game in 2016 is the Battle at Bristol on Sept 10th, where you will need binoculars to watch the game from the front row.

Peppers on offense reminds me of one of the most electric players that I've seen in college football - Reggie Bush at USC. They even wear the same number and essentially the same body size with the combination of power and speed.
If Peppers could do on the Michigan offense what Bush did for USC, it's a no-brainer that Peppers should move to offense.

Whatever is genuine and comes from your heart. If you want to know the details of what the family is going through, go to Tammi Curtis Carr's facebook page. she's been pretty open with sharing and I admire her faith and strength during these times.

Here is the retrospective piece of Drew Henson's long 10 years:
"Looking back now, maybe the best thing would have been just to play my 4 year of football and go through that, because the same opportunities I had in 2001 I would have had 12 months later. "
He's an alumnus and continues to support the program. I'm proud to have him still be a Michigan man.

why is he using both hands for a sideline interception? he is getting old.

Perhaps the argument for a 5th year could be made on the severity of the injury. An achilles tendon injury recovery could take up to 9 months, which would prevent Ojemudia from showcasing his abilities in front of pro teams until after they have their summer rosters set. Will the NCAA consider what's best for an athlete on a case by case basis? Worth a try. They owe Michigan one for McGary.

I wasn't using it as a slur. For these types of rankings, you have to be multi dimensional in arts, engineering, medicine, law, etc. These state schools were first set up to sustain agriculture but since have excelled in other areas as well. Kudos for state schools across the nation.

John Wooden, the greatest coach in college basketball history said this:

Winning and graduating players are a result of doing it the right way:
