I'm guessing it was in The Wolverine preview magazine, or at least it always used to be. Haven't bought it the past few years, though
|5 years 19 weeks ago||Defenseless - at the game||
I was at the game and I definitely heard him say defenseless.
|5 years 20 weeks ago||attended and worked his academy||
I both attended and later worked at his Drum Major Academy, and while it was several years ago, I'll remember him as a great man and developer of leaders....
|5 years 21 weeks ago||Not if they're||
Not if they're retractable.....
|5 years 22 weeks ago||True Fact||
I have a co-worker who is going to be attending the game in a suite on Saturday as part of a campus-wide group he works with (Voices of the Staff). He won a monthly(?) drawing for those that regularly attend their meetings.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||I'm with you....||
#2 also due in (late) September and I have season tickets. I think we may get past Uonn, so I'm hoping (and think it's likely) it will be in the two weeks following.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||Disagree on Roh and Martin||
I think they are all-conference caliber, though not necessarily BG caliber
|5 years 23 weeks ago||Song Selection vs. Arranging skill||
I think his strength IS his skill at arranging, however I think his weakness is in song selection/programming. Nix was a little stronger at the latter, yet nearly as skilled at the former.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||It's of interest to them when||
It's of interest to them when the reason they're not playing is BECAUSE there's other music playing over the sound system. I'm not saying that the two (MMB and RAWK) were always in conflict last year, but they certainly were at certain times.

Robert Goulet always gets a +1
|5 years 23 weeks ago||Or Run-D.M.C sing Aerosmith?||
Just because a song was written for one style/genre/instrumentation doesn't mean you can't effectively re-write/transcribe it into a new one. It takes some musical skill, and sometimes a song isn't a good fit for translation, but we wouldn't have a lot of music we have today if we musicians only played what was written for their instrument/genre.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||Still two different things....||
quality/quantity is a non-issue in this situation, acoustically speaking. HOWEVER, your point about playing opera has nothing to do with the acoustics, it has to do with program selection (which I'm not denying is a source of controversy). Not being able to hear the band and not liking the songs they're playing are two different things. Prof. Haithcock seems to be intentionally adressing only one of these.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||Yes!||
I'm happy we're not just saying we won't do it because it's hard. We have tons of talent on this campus, so I'm happy we're putting it to use on this. It actually poses some good practical challenges where students/faculty can apply their knowledge.....
|5 years 23 weeks ago||Shhhh.....||
I didn't think anyone else noticed this. I thought I was seeing things, albeit good things.
|5 years 24 weeks ago||Closer...||
I'm 10 miles away witha very pregnant wife. I'll be at every home game that doesn't conflict with actual labor/birth activities
|5 years 24 weeks ago||Not if he wants a scholarship||
Big Ten rules would apply....
|5 years 24 weeks ago||Michigan for college sports, MN for pro (mostly)||
I grew up in Minnesota and remain a fan of all pro sports from MN. I went to school at Michigan, and therefore college sports will always be Blue for me.
The only exception for my pro sports allegiances is that I am a Red Wings fan (in addition to the Wild. I boycotted the NHL for several years after the North Stars moved south. This was after I had moved to MI, so I had to choose whether I wanted to never watch pro hockey or to pick a new team. I adopted the Red Wings (happened to be right during their first cup run), as it was my adopted home town team. When MN got the Wild, I did decide to cheer for them in addition to the Red Wings. The only challenge I have, then, is who to cheer for when the two teams play. I usually go for whomever the specific game means more to (usually ends up being RW).

It's never too late for a posbang

In the end, all will get a posbang. Benevolant Posbang Granting God permits it.....

Because the thread demands it!!!!!

Upvotes go well with a nice bourbon.....
|5 years 24 weeks ago||Buffalo Trace at A&L Wine Castle||
I was talking to the guys at A&L about Buffalo Trace, and they actually go down to the distillary a few times a year to taste and select specific barrels of bourbon. Those barrels then get bottled and sold specifically by A&L.
I like it both straight, and in manhattans with Vya vermouth.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Customers||
And to deliver what your customers want, you need to know who your customers are. identify them first, then your question becomes much easier to answer.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||3 & 4||
I like a combo of those two
|5 years 27 weeks ago||2009||
Actually, it says 4-0 in non-conference play in 2009, so those are the B10 schools that went 4-0 last year...
|5 years 27 weeks ago||Actually, neither were||
Actually, neither were convicted. One was charged and the other was not....
|5 years 28 weeks ago||Yeah, that link is much more||
Yeah, that link is much more informative. I've been involved peripherally with the project for a while now, so I lost track of the official communications that when out when it was released. they are much more informative, as they should be.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||UM App, Android, etc.||
The application developed by the students was actually bought by the University (ITS) and is continuing to be developed. I believe they're also working on an Android version, but the initial iPhone version got out the door first because of the development work that was already done. FWIW, they're going to be adding more functionality to the UM app in the future.

|5 years 32 weeks ago||A Tie guarntees that Germany||
A Tie guarntees that Germany doesn't win the group, as Ghana is ahead of them going into the match, so they would still be ahead. They still could advance with a tie, but at best they'd be second which means we would have to play them. Ugh.
