ND doesn't usually screw around with this stuff and generally take the student conduct pledges pretty seriously (except, arguably, with respect to sexual assault). I suspect everyone is gone or at least the first time offenders are done for most if not all of the season.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I feel like if it was a CO2||
I feel like if it was a CO2 leak, the answer would have been "we have no idea what happened, we both started were disoriented and the doctors are trying to figure it out". The "I was just sleepy" answer + ruling out alchol sounds like drugs. :-(

I went last year and it was an awesome time. As a tip, bring along a couple of rare bottles of different kinds if you have them. There is a big tradition of swapping sips in the lines, so if your willing to let some strangers try whatever you have, you can pretty much try every other kind of rare beer on earth. Good luck on getting a golden ticket!

Agree entirely, but would also add Carol Hutchins to your pantheon list.
|42 weeks 2 days ago||I don't entirely get the||
I don't entirely get the metaphor. Is that an embarrassing situation, hence the comparison? With the physics of cramming air into offices, I'd assume that is just a thing that happens.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||He is, and kept a house there||
He is, and kept a house there to spend time with his mom and was very active in a lot of community organizations.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||You have too many words||
You have too many words spelled correctly to be believable.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||That sounds like so much||
That sounds like so much post-grad... Holy crap.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||Way to name check your JD, I||
Way to name check your JD, I bet you were the coolest gunner in your section. "Jizzo" is immature, beneath the level of class befitting of a Michigan alumn, and most of all, just plain stupid.

Can someone photoshop rafiki in pleated khaki's and the trademark Bo Michigan cap?
|47 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah, I genuinely feel for||
Yeah, I genuinely feel for the them. They have been field really damn good teams for the last couple seasons and between who they had on their roster and the fact that they could have marque wins against Oregon and a top OSU on their resume if things went well, this might have been the best shot they'll have for a while for an NC. I feel a little the same for ND, I'm happy to see rivals crap the bed, but not lose because hard working kids got injured.
|47 weeks 3 days ago||They are just OSU or the||
They are just OSU or the school down south, those other names belong on Freep comment threads.
|50 weeks 5 days ago||I'd rather play ND in||
I'd rather play ND in football, but have Penn State or Rutgers in the B1G. Even though Northwestern dabbles in that category, the B1G is a conference for large, well-rounded, research monsters that lead to very balanced university environements, not parochial liberal arts schools with outsized athletic departments.

I took away the exact same perspective. DB by many accounts was not a bad Regent, and if anything his cardinal sin was, after losing the Regent's election, using his power and influence as a connected donor to have him placed into a position where he didn't belong. We have plenty of influential doctors or businessmen as alumni, but if a non-acaemic b-school alumn or doctor that was on the Board of Regents lost their election and immediately tried to install themself as Dean of the Medical School or Ross, there would hell to pay. By many accounts (and credit to John U. Bacon for emphazing them) he was a prototypical Michigan Man (smart driven confident guy with incredibly hard work ethic and deep loyalty to Michigan) and, for all of his sins, was able to at least acknowledge and focus on one of the true cores of college athletics that often gets overlooked (i.e., the lives and college experience of the actual athletes). If Brandon would have stayed an important booster and fan, I think he'd be a much happier guy, the rest of us alumni would generally celebrate him as opposed to revile him, and (hopefully) the University would have hired someone qualified for his position.

Sure could, there were 11 guys on the field at all times...
|1 year 1 week ago||I'm constantly shocked at how||
I'm constantly shocked at how few people can recognize states by their outlines. If it was Wyoming vs. Colorado or maybe the Dakotas vs. Kansas, I could see people struggling, but isn't the rest just a basic thing you have to learn as an American?
|1 year 8 weeks ago||I don't think a lot of the||
I don't think a lot of the fan base is opposed to novelty uniforms if they are done sparingly and cleverly. For football, not more than once a season and not every season (and when done, with a story to go with them). Basketball, hockey, baseball, softall you could rotate in more often.

Didn't realize they had been expelled, does IFC formally penalize any other Greek organizations that do events with them (e.g, mud bowl, sorority mixers?). If not, they should, ungoverned houses lead to big black eyes for the community,
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Citing constitutional||
Citing constitutional protections is a bit to far and the U, national organizations, and the IFC all have the ability in varying ways to strip all rights and formal recognitions from various of the houses. That said, the freedom of assembly ideal is core to the history of Greek organizations, and the experience of living in a quasi-self governing community of students is one of the better parts of the Greek experience.

It's a U of M board though, and as I understand it, despite the changes in other frats cultures over the years, Pike has remained Pike for decades.

Wow, tell us more!

|1 year 33 weeks ago||Pretty much everything other||
Pretty much everything other than the football program advanced tremendously under Mary Sue Coleman and the strong position the university is in financially (through a period when many peer institutions took huge blows and lost great faculty) and academically are incredible. That doesn't seem to be a fair criticism to me.

Given the timing, I assume it was either academic or disciplinary, or he was bold enough to try and March into a new coaches office with his dad and try to make demands for playing time.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||I've heard that no small part||
I've heard that no small part in the change in offense came at the direction of management worrying about preserving the value of their newly signed QB, which is kind of silly b/c you don't build an offense around a Kapernick if you aren't willing to risk QB hits.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||*slow clap*||
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Yeah, and I don't think||
Yeah, and I don't think Michigan is going to go through the public nightmare of suing him for a breach.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Probably not, but if the||
Probably not, but if the Raiders come in at $10mm a year and promise the moon and sun on control, he'll think about it.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Shelter is one of our most||
Shelter is one of our most high profile alumni in the national media, it's not like he wouldn't be thrilled to see Harbaugh come home either. I think generally the NFL guys are taking the right approach, Harbaugh is probably coming home and things have progressed really far down that path, but the NFL teams haven't had a chance to lay their cards on the table yet, and their is enough money and prestige in the NFL that a team could make Jim think very hard if they could move quickly and willing to offer a substantial topping bid.
