as has already been mentioned, is that it is wide open and subject to trolls. You can protect your tweets, but then the only people that can see them are those that are following you, which kind of defeats the purpose of trying to do a liveblog on twitter.
That being said, twitter seems like the best option at this point. Those that don't want to mix their professional accounts with MGoBlog could just open a second twitter for MGoBlog purposes.

It's not that he's setting a bad example to his team (there are plenty of other poor role models down there), but more so to the viewers that may have seen him dipping on the sideline while watching the game on tv. It may seem trivial, but the NCAA does have rules against using alcohol, drugs, and tobacco at events for good reason. I'm sure you can figure out why for drugs and alcohol, but tobacco is the greatest risk factor for developing oral cancer among many others (20X higher risk). So while its stupid in the context of recruiting, it was the right thing for the health teacher to do from a public health standpoint.

Should a 7 year old car be rusting, especially in those locations and with modern anti-corrosive paints/sealers? That's what I would be concerned about. I had a '97 Ford stored almost exclusively outside and it didn't start getting rust on the body until it was about 10-11 years old. Yes this is anecdotal, but it should be something to consider when negotiating for this car.

1. No love for weather underground. If I'm not mistaken that's a spin off from UM that has done quite well.
2. I'm glad Brandon spoke about the weather, but as another poster mentioned he should defer to Hoke on coaching questions. Additionally, I really hope he's not planning on speaking at every post-game. Sometimes I think he just likes to hear himself talk. This is supposed to be about the Team, not Dave Brandon. Do other ADs do this regularly? Certainly not "I'm on a boat" Martin.

I always run Firefox, but had only been running Noscript on my Admin profile. The profile I usually use does not have admin privileges to help prevent unwanted junk from automatically installing itself. The only thing I dislike about Noscript is that you have to approve a number of things on every webpage you go to and for me that gets old quick.

|2 years 3 weeks ago||Re: student activity fees||
I'm not quite sure how this would involve student activity fees.
First, UM's student activity fee is $15 per semester (really low, may go up soon). Rec sports can barely maintain facilities with that amount. If there is going to be an increase in the fee to pay student athletes, then there will be a lot of backlash within the university about ways to better spend that increase.
Second, mid-major's may have higher student activity fees, but do you really think the student body would agree to let the university increase their cost of attendance to pay the athletes to do their laundry? I just don't see that happening. Increasing ticket prices probably won't do it either because most of those mid-majors already have a hard time putting butts in the seats.

As others have said, check out Moneyball. It gives a good explanation about why teams don't do things like this. It's mostly an issue of the old guard in baseball doing things a certain way for so long that they don't want to change. Throw on top of that how over valued saves are and you end up risking having a disgruntled "closer" because he's not getting true saves in the normal sense.
I saw an article suggesting that the Mets, who are having money problems, should use K-Rod in the situations you suggested because it makes more sense from a Sabermetrics standpoint and would result in fewer traditional saves, in turn preventing some bonuses from activating. The only problem with that is the union would file a grievance. However the decision can be backed up b Sabermetrics and the team might be able to win that dispute.

Considering we have a bunch of players that don't fit a position, I think we are going to need some recruits before the defense really gets going. Getting those recruits will take a couple of years.

The secondary should be better based solely on the the experienced gained by the freshman this past season.
The 4-3 we ran in the waning Carr years did not match up well against the spread, so that may be a concern going forward. Then again the 3-3-5 was supposed to be the great equalizer when it came to defending the spread and we all know how well that worked out.

If he gets an OSU offer he is going there:

Also, he's only a sophomore, so chances are he still has the potential to grow another 1-3" putting him right around 6'-0".

I find it incredibly odd that 12 players all came down with the same ailment, especially when these guys are not far removed from the end of their season. They should be close to their best shape right now.
Rhabdomyolysis has been rumored to be the cause and can be attributed cocaine, amphetamines, statins, heroin, or PCP use per the google machine.
This does not look good for Iowa.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Another thing to think about||
Another thing to think about that the IT guy for my grad progam suggested was to have two accounts set up on your computer. One as an admin with full privileges, the second as your everyday account with limited privileges (ie. no install and limited adjustments to settings). This prevents malware, viruses, etc from downloading and installing on your computer.
It's kind of a pain switching between accounts when installing a new program, but for most people we don't install new things all that often and I have not a problem with malware/viruses. Once a month or so I log into the admin account and download any updates that may be available for windows, java, flash, etc.
Another suggestion for those running firefox is to install the Adblock Plus and Noscript plug-ins. When you navigate to a website (MGoBlog included) you are actually loading several websites at the same time. All the ads are coming from different sources, blocking those prevents unwanted content and attacks. You can customize the settings so sites like MGoBlog can still display everything and Brian still receives his pennies for each click.

|2 years 21 weeks ago||Anyway, the knock on||
I think you need to flip that around. Strength was not the issue, it was conditioning. Teams always talked about how Michigan early in the season got winded easily. Additionally, a few players mentioned never running as much under Carr/Gittleson as RR/Barwis (granted spread, etc, but still the point remains the same). Look at the combine times of Manningham. Add in the comments from former players coming back to work out with Barwis saying they felt like they were getting faster as well as stronger. Last but not least, I give you Jake Long, tell him strength was the issue
|2 years 21 weeks ago||I'm happy with it as long as||
I'm happy with it as long as it is flexible enough (scheme and personnel) to match up with pure spread teams. I can see the value in having the 3-3-5 as a change of pace, but not as an every down D.

The thing is, students/parents are paying higher and higher tuition rates every year and expect to be getting the most bang for their buck. However, when comparing our rec facilities to other B1G schools and top universities we lag far far behind. Now days people expect state of the art, country club type amenities a la Lifetime Fitness, 24 Hour Fitness, etc.

I had Burns for fluids and Fogler for a little bit of reactions. Linic however taught most of reactions. Fogler was busy putting the finishing touches on the new reactions book, which IMO is fantastic as far as textbooks go. Burns is now the dept head, so I don't know what/if he is teaching. I graduated in May and I know they like to rotate professors, so maybe they are taking a year of two off.
Ziff...he's an interesting guy, but that dude was always teaching way above my head. He seemed unprepared and I'm pretty sure he answered a call in the middle of class.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||The university would struggle||
The university would struggle with supporting departments and degrees that do not bring in much in the way of funding and as a result, many of those departments and programs would be cut. Having those progams is what adds to the diversity of this university. This is in no way a good thing for anyone involved. In a state looking to shore up a huge budget deficit, they would not simply reallocate the money, it would simply be gone from the department of education and in turn, gone from the budget.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||If there is anything at the||
If there is anything at the university that is underfunded it is the gyms. It's hard to defer maintenance that was never conducted in the first place...
The IMSB was updated maybe 10 years ago (not sure) but pretty much everything else is 30+ years old and has not been touched outside of a coat of paint once in a while. They are finally starting to make some changes and updates, but it is a horrendously slow process and I don't see a positive outcome occuring for 5 or more years.

Not so sure about that. The cost of a dental education has skyrocketed the last ten years (unless you are instate at a public school... even then it's expensive).

Throw in the cost of opening/buying a practice and it does not look nearly as lucrative as I once did.

It's my understanding that people have three strikes in terms of academics. First strike is academic probation, second strike you have to take a semester off, and the third strike means you are done. He acknowledged that he struggled the first year and with his recent struggles this past semester, I would guess he is on the second strike. With the NCAA progress rules, I'd guess he is gone.

I don't think that's so much of a bad thing. I think we all obsess over recruiting a bit much and sometimes I think the recruits just want a little bit of anonymity. Say what you will about how DB handled the CC, but I did like that it was Fort Schembechler again with no leaked info to undermine things the way it do for RR.

You failed to mention the most crucial bit of information. The plane appears to have purposely skirted Ohio airspace on the way back. This means we obviously have a coach that knows about the rivalry.

I don't get the signing. Overpaying for an aging, middle reliever (!), one year removed from major injury, with a career year so far out of line with his historical averages...
We could have saved a few bucks and brought up one of the 20 major league ready relief pitchers we have in the minors right now or is DD not saying we have that kind of depth this year? /s

|2 years 27 weeks ago||1. As was mentioned, braces||
1. As was mentioned, braces are not always cosmetic. Malocclusion and misalignment can lead to future dental problems if not corrected. (gingivitis, periodontitis, caries, etc)
2. Braces are generally not covered by dental insurance and if the insurance does cover it, the braces will rarely be fully covered. If the school has a dental school (OSU & UM included) most dental care is at cost or covered. Being at a private school with a dental school now, all of our undergrads have dental coverage. We have to pay at least some of the lab fees.
So while this sounds like more of OMG OSU is paying players, it's really not a bad thing. I'd rather a school spend money on braces (opens doors for employment outside of football) than boats and hoes.
