The biggest problem people have with calc is neither the calc concepts (which are basically slope and area) nor the skills, but all the pre-calc stuff you need to be able to to just to analyze the problems. Strong Geometry, trig, and VERY strong function & graphical analysis and algebra skills make the Calc course MUCH easier.

2) I turned off the Braylon game for most of the 2nd half. It was like Drew stanton was on a class AA HS team and the M defense was some poor class D small school team. who had the better talent and better athletes? and yet the M defense looked completely lost out there. it's like they played checkers all week instead of prepping for the game.

I have some experience with this, but it's not perfectly aligned with your situation. Wife from MI, I'm from NY. We lived in MI for about 12 years after college. About 3 years ago she gets a job offer about an hour from where I grew up in NY. We take it and have lived in NY for 3 years now.
She never lived anywhere but MI within an hour of her fam before. It was a big transition- every one is basically a timezone away and although there is phone, skype, vacations, her fam visits, we meet 1/2 way, etc etc etc, she struggles with the transition. We have 2 kids, in elementary school - and that's the toughest part b/c we can't just have Grammy pick up the kids after school or drop them off. So, it's a constant battle to hand the kids off, get to/from work, etc all school year. You have no kids, which will make it an easier transtion at first, but know that if/when kids come along, she's going to feel a bit isolated. If your fam can be around for support, the occasional date night, etc, that will help a lot (especially if she gets along with your fam). Being away from friends is a big deal too, even tho we never really saw any of them all much in MI- life, kids, etc makes it tough unless they are literally across the street.
I think the botom line will be an better work environment for you both. The winters will be a huge transition (even for you - Lake effect snow is non-existant in SE MI, but a huge thing in the west). But if you plan a vaca to Tex/Zona every Jan/Feb, that might go a long way.

it's not attendance that is the concern. College baseball will never get a big number to most games. It would be nice to see 50% more attend, say.... but that's 1500 up from 1000 on a good day
I think the bigger issue is summer league ball (Cape Cod league). The B10 doesn't want to compete against that- they likely lose the top 10% of their recruits if Cape Cod and B10 ball are mutually exclusive.
Fall ball that starts around Aug 20th or so might be perfect. Ends mid Nov.

|5 weeks 4 days ago||You think +/- is a viable stat?||
not really, but make an arguement for why it's not.
I agree with the premis. But in aggregate, are you saying that over the course of 40 games a players' poor +/- is more indicitive of the poor play of his teammates?
unless he is consistently paired with the worst Dman on the team, or always on the ice with the 4th line, or plays more on the PK than on the PP, I'd say that +/- is a fair initial judgement of the results of his play, over the course of a season.
5v5 +/- for the pairing (again, over the course of the season) would be better.

I think what's changed is how disciplied our Dmen (or how good their decision-making is) are and how consistent our goaltending is.
It would be great for M to recruit a goalie who turns out to be a stone-cold killer, like MSU has 2-3 times in the last 15-20 years.

I'm surprised you're against rotating the FF between those 5- they have the most geographically convenient locations to college hockey towns and thus the best chance of getting a good crowd.

Denver only has a few teams close but the broadmore hosted at the historic start of the tourney, so that's fine I guess.

what you're not accounting for is the ability of the human laborer to LEARN a new trade that is now in demand.

Businesses are already replacing the human labor force with more efficeint, precise and cheaper automated equipment. What the businesses can't find are people that have the expertise to maintain the robots. What they can't find are lots of companies who have the expertise to design construct and program robots to complete unique and challenging tasks. Educational institutions (Comm Colleges primarily) are designing educational pathways to these advanced manufacturing and automated engineering positions. The ship has sailed on this already, and likely for the better.

|19 weeks 3 days ago||Now that u mention it, idk if||
Now that u mention it, idk if I took 217 or 417, but it's still the same content generally. AFA what it's used for, well it's kind of obvious that it's a quick way of solving a set of linear equations with n variables. Everyone in HS can solve a system of 2 linear equations, even three etc, but it's tedious using the solve and substitute method. So just plug in your coefficients into a matrix and do the matrix math when the system has n>3 variables.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||I know many people have said||
I know many people have said math 217 was brutal, but I don't get it. It seemed pretty straight forward to me- yes, matrix math is tedious by hand, but it's not hard. Sure there are a few theorems and proofs, but those are pretty simple in 217 compared to other math classes. I'd take it bc it helps u understand arrays in programming. Full disclosure: this is from a guy who majored in astrophysics at M.

I really want a car. Problem is, we are saving up for a house down payment. Current car just got paid off and is (of course) starting to need repairs (heat is wonky, trans is wonky). Was thinking of getting a lease for a better family car that would be our 1st new-new car, while still getting some value for the current one. Yes, I'm fishing for advice for the situation and any car advice as well

Problem is, I really don't need a 3rd row. But, I like the flexibility of the room the Lexus RX provides. It's basically the biggest 2 row SUV out there and gets the best reviews (from US News rankings, Edmunds, etc). It's my 1st forray into the luxury market so I don't anticipate the driving experience to be a huge deal to me. Not looking at mileage (looking for a 7500 mile/yr lease).
funny thing is, I almost posted an OT thread a few days ago over the holiday, but didn't

This is 100% on Schlissel, and I'm not terribly worried. From all we have heard from the Pres,
1) He's willing to take his time to get the AD right. It's not a corporation and who cares if Microsoft can get a CEO in less than 6 months? POTUM will learn about the culture of the U, the AD and the candidates (with help from Hacket). He'll make his decision from there based on all available info: not jus tthe BS message board list of 4-6 guys with M ties. Isn't that what you DON'T want: a list of JUST Michigan Men? We need a guy who can work within POTUMs ideas of how an AD should be run, not just a successful guy with ties to M.
2) the interim timeline is what people are mistaking: it's not permanent, obvs - Hackett won't be the AD in 4-5 years. But it's also not a 2-6 month thing either. There are 2 reasons for this: A) POTUMs ideals about hiring the right guy (See 1 above) and B) they need to hire a football coach 1st, so that's where Hackett time is being spent right now- he has to research, negotiate, hire, and see the coach thru the transition. that is necessarily a year long type of process.
adjust your own personal def'ns of interim to 8-20 months and you'll be OK, people

sure, there are tons of groups that one could make that comment about. but the point is, in this context of university greek life:
With or without the greek system you would have good people doing good acts and evil people doing evil acts. But for (previously apparently) good people to commit evil acts, that takes an institutionalized system of peer acceptance of such acts. That institutionalized system is the greek system.*
*again, in this context. I'm sure other institutions would lead to similar situations- sports clubs, etc.
|22 weeks 6 days ago||no one is arguing that frats||
no one is arguing that frats contriubte 100% of all rape or hazing incidents, nor that removing them will prevent all future such incidents on earth.
but within the contrained borders of a university community (or universities as a whole) the greek system generates a culture more inclined to such behavior that would never remotely be considered tolerable among peers (college educated young adults) outside of the frat culture.
is it possible that individuals could conspire to do this without a gree system in place? sure. but there wouldn't be an existing institutional structure that is set up to shelter/shield/normalize- these activities. And there certainly wouldn't be an organizational culture that would defend (<--lack of a better word) the behavior on their behalf.
Imagine there was a group of 7 males who just got together to conspire to commit this act (w/o a greek system involved)? we would be asking what types of conditions these people were in to think that this was an OK thing to do.
|22 weeks 6 days ago||so, without the frat context,||
so, without the frat context, the pledging scenario or the hazing culture, these guys would have thought it ok to gang rape a girl and somehow found a way to do it anyway (allegedly)?

After the ND game, Hoke was all but lost to me. He had a shot, but it was clear after the Utah game this the problems were systemic, not isolated.

|23 weeks 5 days ago||well then why mention it?||
b/c he can empathise with the feelings of rage whereby the only seemingly logical action in the heat of the moment is to the knock that fucker out.
I can also empathise- I've played in adult hardball leagues for over a decade (mostly in A2) and have experienced the exact same feelings in the exact same context- high school/early college kids who payed in the old mans league would get up a a dozen runs, then keep stealing bases, including home. Our pitcher goes up and in on them, and they get all offended. Benches clear, etc.
As Brian said, this doesn't attempt to equate the actions of Clark with this, just that in the heat of the moment, as mentioned you can go to a place one wouldn't normally think you could go.

|24 weeks 2 days ago||I agree that theoretically,||
I agree that theoretically, it might be feasible to create an athletics major- in fact, they did. it's called Kinesiology. I believe they also offer sports medicine and training, and sports marketing. They also have athletic administration (my sister alledgedly earned the 1st PhD in athletic Admin from MIchigan). I don't see how a major in a particular sport would be necessary, unless coaching would require it, or if the NFL/NBA or other pro leagues began demanding it.
And that really leads to the bigger point that Brian misses, and other have only touched on tangentially: majors and degrees are created b/c there is a demand from industry/business. No one invents a major and then the jobs are created to then provide all these Widget-majors a job. It's actually just the opposite. The perfect example is modern manufacturing/engineering technitions. 30+ years ago there were engineers (project managers, designers, etc) and then the operators/mechanics/technitions that were replaced by robots (think auto industry, if you wish). Well, sure that removed jobs of the 4-6 people who installed a windshild on to a car and sealed it on the production line. But the robotics also CREATED jobs for people who have more technical training in how the mechanical and electrical and controll systems of the ROBOTS operate. There is a NEED now in industry for people who can program, trouble shoot and maintain the robotics (their hydrolics, pneumatics, electrical and controll systems). As a result, colleges are developing 2 and 4 year degrees, not really in engineering, not technitions either, but reather somewhere in between. The industry changed creating a gap in the talent pool and academia reacted to the demand for some type of new skill set that businesses needed to have in people.
If no one outside of the NCAA is demanding a set of skills that a graduate of said program would be garunteed to have upon completion, then there is no point in colleges creating that degree.
