the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

Still doesn't answer whether the stadium was responsive after it was struck by lightning. Hope it's okay!

Agree with karpodiem, yes you've got a great shot (although I'm hoping you were asking just for self-assurance and not evaluating your odds before deciding whether to apply - you should definitely apply).
With respect to the tuition difference between Michigan and State - granted I'm biased, but an in-state education at the University of Michigan is possibly the best value you can find in post-secondary education in the country. Yes, it's more expensive, but the opportunities that will be opened for you at Michigan will be far greater than at State.
Just look at the companies that recruit on campus at Michigan versus the ones that recruit at Michigan State - it takes much less effort to get in front of the recruiters at top tier organizations when you go to Michigan than when you go to Michigan State. Not to say that it's impossible coming from Michigan State, but you have to be much more proactive and get "luckier" when reaching out to organizations that aren't recruiting on campus.
Best of luck to you!

In one game or over the course of the season?

By the way, I think the "Stats" section might be pulling from Wayne Morgan's info.

Easy there. I've got two family members who are faculty there, one of whom has two degrees from Michigan and is a Michigan fan. When you're in academia, you go where you can find a job (any industry really, but even moreso in academia).

To be clear, that $2 million figure was from 2007 when an investor group initially acquired the website. The Cheezburger network (incl. Failblog, etc) recently raised $30 million in venture capital financing and I'm going to guess the pre-money valuation was significantly higher than $2 million.

The article itself says:
"Well, Detroit, go ahead and let us have it: You are officially the most spitting-mad metropolis."
Methinks they have a poor numbering system and really did mean that 100th angriest = 1st angriest. Plus, there's no way Burlington, VT is the angriest city. You can't be angry in Vermont!

|2 years 23 weeks ago||Just because the buyout drops||
Just because the buyout drops on Jan. 1, 2011 doesn't mean that the reduced buyout is only in effect for that day. The buyout for the balance of 2011 remains at $2.5M (instead of the $4M that it was in 2010). Therefore, the 30 day notice to RR can be given at any time as long as the termination occurs on or after Jan. 1.
Also, generally speaking the way severance/minimum notification terms work, as long as you get paid for the length of time in the contract, it really doesn't matter what you're asked to do during that period of time. Often most employers prefer to just let the person stay at home and get paid since that employee may become a distraction to other employees in the company.

First of all we were 7-4 in the regular season that year and lost in the bowl game. Add a cream puff to the schedule and we would have been 8-4. We also beat MSU and gave Penn State their only loss of the season (a team that finished 3rd in the final rankings). On top of that, we were beating OSU in the 4th quarter before letting Troy Smith take over.

Out of curiosity, is it really that easy to take the SAT for someone else? How'd you pull it off? I seem to remember that the ID checks when I took the test would have made it very difficult for anyone to pose as someone else.

|2 years 34 weeks ago||Good news from the University||
Annual research spending grew 12% to a whopping $1.14 Billion this past academic year:
Two years in a row where research spending is above $1B. Just gives you a sense for how big a deal the University is. Not clear how much of the $1.14B was spent on leather-bound books or making offices smell of rich mahogany.

I say we get at least 3. Maybe, in a best case scenario we end up with 13. But probably something between 3 and 13.
I like to go out on a limb.

I thought I read somewhere that the Cass Tech guys worked out on their own this summer and didn't do a great job getting into shape. Not sure if that was just conjecture or a known fact. Hopefully Barwis can get them back into shape quickly here and that they've all learned their lesson going forward.

Not travel rewards, but the Charles Schwab Invest First credit card puts 2% into your Schwab brokerage account. That's a pretty good rewards rate.
I believe you can compare credit card programs at www.creditcards.com
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Jeremy Bloom?||
Hmm...it seems like it might be a little more complicated than that because Jeremy Bloom was declared ineligible by the NCAA because of his skiing career.
I don't remember the details of that case, but I wonder if the NCAA draws a distinction for salaries drawn from another sport versus advertising income (which may potentially be strongly linked to another sport, but ultimately leverages the popularity of the athlete overall).

Looks great, although it seems like there is a time zone adjustment being made. I'm in central time and it's counting down to 3:30 pm CT
