As a townie I have always loved the history of Ann Arbor.
In regards to moving the operations to another part of campus the rumor of relocating to NCRC (as guessed a few posts above) has been floating around but it is very much just an idea. Granted the people having these ideas have power and sway within the university but an idea can be summarily squashed by many internal political forces.

And the buildings adjacent to the railroad tracks actually pre-date Michigan Stadium.
Hoover Ball and Bearing was opened in 1913 well before the Big House was built in 1927.
Some more info here:
Suprisingly there was a day and age when athletics were an afterthought economically.
|1 day 2 hours ago||I currently work in Plant Ops||
The collection of buildings that sit between the railroad tracks and the blue lot adjacent to the stadium used to be ball bearing plant before it was acquired by the University. The name of company escapes me and this acquisition happened well before my time.
Anyway the point is that many of assets that were useful when it was a ball bearing plant were reused in way that suits the plant operations department. For instance, the university moving and trucking department makes great use of the existing loading dock. There are many more trades and departments housed here that all "Make Blue Go" (the Plant Operations slogan).
That being said, one of the running jokes around the office is that the athletic department has always had their eyes on the property and is just waiting for the right time to kick everyone out and level the place to accommodate their grand design. Unfortunately the buildings are also home to the Architecture, Engineering and Construction department who would ultimately have to approve their own eviction...

Not to mention a warrior on the gridiron.
Devin, you deserve all the praise that is given to you. I wish, for both our sakes, that your effort had been rewarded today but alas it was not.
Forever and always,

I would have gone with the RDT approach. Post the question with a pseudo-account and then come in with your real account to defend the OP. As long as you don't mix your accounts up it works like a charm.

Think of Bunny Colvin when they see FSU's head coach?

|5 weeks 3 hours ago||Florida always surprises people||
in terms of thier academic prowess and rankings. If I remember correctly they have a very high number of national merit scholars enrolled year in and year out.
As far as thier ranking in engineering your guess is as good as mine though it doesnt suprise me to see them high on lots of different lists.
|5 weeks 3 hours ago||There are not individual tutors in CoE||
And as a graduate of UofM College of Engineering I think it should be that way. If you need someone to hold your hand through four years of engineering curriculum you really shouldn't be an engineer in the real world.
That being said there are many opportunities/people/groups that are available and willing to help students when it comes it to tutoring but it might not be at the same level that Alabama alocates to thier student athletes.

playing The Last of Us online. It was right after a move where I lost my headset otherwise I would've tried to make conversation.

its just that his last sentence is worded oddly

Some of those hits are a couple inches away from being called targeting

Also the fact that his team is called the honey badgers

I'm almost positive it was Tubby's.

Or does Damien Harris look a lot like Derrick Walton?
|12 weeks 3 days ago||I applaud you good sir||
For taking the time to defend your beloved Spartans from the obvious blasphemy perpetrated by the posters on this here blog. Also for proving that spartan fans do have the ability to type paragraphs (I always thought that was an urban legend).

I went with "Idiot's Avant"

He certainly doesn't inspire awe... If that's what you mean.

Involves 3 people, then a four way duel is a Finnish staredown??

Literally 200 yards from the stadium is almost painful right now. This day has been drrrraaaaggggging along.
|14 weeks 9 hours ago||Who was "correct"||
On the triple team of the WILL? I would like to imagine that it was bushell Beaty (73) as he has the easiest release from his assignment on the DT. Granted I have no first hand knowledge of run blocking schemes. Also it would be nice to know how another one of our commits faired on a damn impressive highlight.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||That goal line stand||
around the 5:25 speaks volumes about his physical play style just as mch as the hit stick highlights. To stick your nose in there and help stand up the RB as a smaller guy is quite impressive.
Excited for him to see the field in.....2017??
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Man this sucks||
I really hope he can make a full recovery and be a productive player in the future.
On a more board related note can we agree to not rip that guy who tweets insider injury info? He has been pretty accurate so far, 3/3 by my count. Wether or not he should tweet out injury info in the first place is another issue but its not like he is making it up.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||There is no truth to that rumor||
If you have a parent at the university there is no discount if you are a student, let alone free tuition. I have heard from friends who held part time jobs in the admissions office that if you have a parent at the unversity it is much easier to get accepted as a prospective student but thats about as far as the benfits go.

|17 weeks 5 days ago||A little lacking||
On the malt character that I expect from a black IPA but as it warms toward room temperature it's getting a more robust flavor. It is described as a session black IPA so I guess it's ok that it's a little lighter on flavor.

Just finished a DRIPA. Had a nice nose and initial hop bite but the aftertaste left something to be desired.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Ewwww||
You should really get a doctor to look at that and possibly get that growth removed...
