Brian, I think it was you who suggested at one point that colleges and universities should develop bona fide degree programs in sports performance for athletes. As I recall, there was quite a debate on this site about whether it would be analogous to degree programs in music performance, theater, etc.; and the merits of such a program in view of the future ability of graduates to earn a living in the real world.
I wasn't in support of the idea; but upon further review, I now believe that it shouldn't be out of the question. We don't prohibit, for example, a voice or drama major from earning money on the side playing gigs, teaching private lessons, etc. We don't suggest that a student in one of those degree programs is less an "amateur" for earning money by those means - why shouldn't we feel the same way about athletes?
The obvious argument against pursuing and/or earning a degree in "Football Performance" (or basketball, baseball, hockey, etc.) is that the vast majority of athletes pursuing that degree will never make it to the pros. Likewise, with the average pro career in football just 2.6 years in length, we could be dooming many athletes to lives spent in homeless shelters.
But those are pretty well the same odds as students who pursue degrees in theater, music, etc. Very few graduates end up with careers in those professions. And many who do are practically required to pursue advanced degrees just to be competitive.
The more I think about it, the more it makes sense.

I had used the Gillette Fusion razor for years but got tired of paying a tidy ransom for the cartridges. I decided that my investment in the DSC's "Executive" (6 primary blades plus 1 trimmer) was reasonably close and half the price.
So far, I haven't noticed any issues with the blades, except that the point about shavings getting stuck between the blades is right on. I also kind of miss the swivelling head of the Fusion, but that's not worth double the price of the DSC.
I've also tried the shave butter and hair styling gel. Both are pretty good products - I'm totally sold on shave butter instead of cream, and I won't go back except in an emergency.

Many of the comments made by other coaches, ADs, Finebaum, the lack of support by Delaney, etc., make me think that this ban WILL stand. Harbaugh upset the perceived Natural Order of Things. He's a disrupter, an interloper, and if there's anything comfortable people can't stand, it's someone moving their cheese.
So, the ban will be upheld in a futile attempt to get Harbaugh trained like a good lap dog. It will work about as well as we all know it will.

There are so many paths that Harbaugh can take this ...
- "Look, we WANT you to evaluate as many opportunities as possible; because we know that you'll see what makes Michigan different."
- "While some coaches in the SEC don't want to work very hard, those programs that are most successful know that the highest levels of success comes from outworking everybody."
- "How hard do you think you'll have to work to make it to the NFL? Our staff has is made up of former NFL coaches; you'll be ready for Sundays because you'll have outworked everyone else."
- "Certain coaches in our own conference aren't interested in putting in the time and effort to even recruit players who can make a difference; how do you think that translates onto the field? Their recent results speak for themselves."

Exactly. While it was admirable of Ford to use a high-volume platform in order to keep the costs down, it also meant making compromises that a pure-bred hybrid may not have required.

I really enjoyed the car for the two years I had it, but as I live in Michigan, I found it to be more of a curiosity than anything. Since it's not all-electric (it's powertrain is much like a Chevy Volt's, in that it can run for about 25 miles on pure battery power and switch to a gas-electric mode like a Prius for about another 400 miles) it offered great flexibility. But like all hybrids, it was an exercise in compromises for Ford.
All-electric range topped out at around 25 miles; but in the winter, battery efficiency dropped by around 40%, so I'd be lucky to get 15 miles on a full charge (usually 12-14 miles). Additionally, the gas engine would start automatically whenever the heater ran, further diminishing overall efficiency.
There aren't many electric vehicle charging stations in Michigan and popular locations that do have them (like the airport) don't have enough of them to meet demand. I was only able to charge my car at the airport a few times. Cities like Ann Arbor have charging stations in abundance; but they are still rare in most places around the state. Tesla doesn't have any except at the supplier it bought on the west side.
Due to the extra-large battery pack, truck space was only big enough to fit maybe one golf bag and not much more. On the other hand, it was a great vehicle to have around town for a family of four. It was quiet, stylish, very spacious, and offered lots of creature comforts. Except for the powertrain and lack of truck room, it was otherwise a typical Ford Fusion.
When my two-year lease was up, I chose not to get a new one. On the whole, the cost of ownership is higher than a similarly-sized vehicle with a conventional gasoline powertrain. Now that gas prices are back to around $2/gal, even the price incentives offered by DTE Energy for my 220V home charging station didn't make up enough of the difference.
My overall experience, however, was positive. I went a full month before I had to fill the gas tank for the first time. When I turned in the car, my MPGe was around 75. Until my first winter with the car taxed the battery efficiency, that figure was north of 100 for more than six months.
It gave me confidence that a vehicle like the Tesla is entirely practical. Now that the Model 3 is available, I'll give it serious consideration.

Do we have to post a new LOL Sparty thread every five minutes? This isn't RCMB. Make it stop.

Those times you don't do it will be the regrets you have when she grows up. Trust me.

And post the link about U-M winning the Citrus Bowl on NYD... In 2008.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||You are an evil genius||
This is clearly a social experiment to see how many people open the link and read it before posting a comment.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||I read this, too||
I started laughing; particularly at the thought of the RCMB troll reactions sure to follow.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly||
He only kicks on the wrong side of the field, just like in the UK and Japan.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||I'm fairly sure he isn't Polish||
But he has a few spare rooms in the rectory.

But their offense is non-existent.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||You take that back||
Or I'm going all Zhukov on your ass.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||That settles it||
I'll invite you out to our parish in Milford and we'll get skunked on the sacramental wine. Unconsecrated, of course, because we got to have SOME rules.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||How did you get them "all at one time?"||
You must have bet the officer that he couldn't pull you over the second, third and fourth time that night.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||There are no bad titles||
Just the bad OPs who create them and should feel bad.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Of this I have no doubt||
Isn't it interesting that the ENTIRE story of Rick Pitino's crew at Louisville basically running a brothel for recruits went nowhere? No NCAA notices? No follow-ups? Nothing?
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Because it is probably a felony||
Cash payouts are taxable income and if athletes and/or recruits are receiving them, that income needs to be reported. Failure to report it is a crime.
If it is happening under the table, then lots of people are lying and being told to lie about it. Depending on who instructs whom to say what, that may cross the line into suborning perjury. Also a felony.
If the university is a participant, directly or indirectly, it is at least an accessory to a crime.
Starting to get the picture? Is THAT the sort of thing you want our University to be doing?
|17 weeks 5 days ago||But in this case||
That would have been just fine.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||You're lucky||
When my son was 4, he would have insisted on the jersey saying "BUTT" on the back. He's now 15... And he would still want the name "Butt" on the back.
You've probably figured out by now (or soon will) that boys never really grow up.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||I'll bet||
You're great at parties.

If they didn't fire Mitch Albom all those years ago, they won't fire Sharp. The Freep does not have, nor has it ever had, integrity.

But so is most of Belgium. My favorite city is Leuven. Just east of Brussels on the E-40 motorway. Big university town with a culture similar to Ann Arbor. It has an excellent brewpub called "Domus" and several other bars and restaurants that are outstanding as well.
Enjoy the country - one of the best in Europe.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||I'm sick and tired||
Of you people and your endless bitching about MSU and OSU. Put on your big kid pants. All of you.
When do we move on to feats of strength? I've been working out at the bar for weeks getting ready.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||I think||
We will all behave ourselves just about as much as you'd expect of a bunch of unsupervised adolescents.
God help us all.
Okay, who brought the Jack Daniels and the porn DVDs?

|19 weeks 6 hours ago||This cracked me up||
It probably shouldn't, but damn, I needed a good laugh today. Many thanks.
|19 weeks 6 hours ago||Your best comment, ever||
You've outdone yourself with this one.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||That's simply not true||
BBQ at the Big House has been a big success. Mrs. R's nachos, too.

We should be in good shape on defense, but the OL - ugh. Not a tire fire, but when you're replacing a majority of the starters with really young guys, that has to be at least a yellow flag.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||I went to Poland last year for the first time||
I still have family there. Krakow is a jewel; as beautiful as any city I've ever seen and remarkably unspoiled. Because it isn't as well-known as cities like Prague and Budapest, it's also not as crowded.
Just being there made me immensely proud of my Polish heritage.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam||
Last summer, I got an opportunity to visit a client at Hickam. There are still bullet holes from the Japanese planes in some of the exterior walls; they were not fully repaired as a reminder that we must always remain vigilant. Holes can even be seen in some of the stairwells.
I had two uncles (my father's brothers) in the USAAF in Europe; both in B-24s and both survived the war. The oldest brother was a radio operator and made it (barely) through his tour of duty. The other brother was a bombardier and was shot down during a mission over Czechoslovakia in August of 1944; he spent the rest of the war as a POW.
I'm eternally grateful to both. One of the best war movie lines I've ever heard was in a mini-series about Dwight Eisenhower (Tom Selleck played Ike).

Maryland could have hired Stitt. He isn't the hot name like last year, but is obviously a solid head coach. Maybe the Terps were looking for that Ess Eee Cee hookup.
