|3 days 6 hours ago||Yeah||
Yeah, personally I've never been a huge fan of Zingerman's but I'm not all that enamored of delis in general. Some people will willingly spend $$$ on a sandwich and others will spend a corresponding amount on something else. As someone who grew up in A2 and went to the U and grad school there, my take on Zingerman's is that people loved it because they're supposed to love it.

I bet if I offered you or Ron Paul a billion dollars in "fiat currency", no strings attached, neither you or he would turn it down.

Sterling has no legal standing. If he has Alzheimer's, then he is probably incompetent or his wife will have him declared incompetent and can't make decisions about the sale. And if he does not, then he's a racist and makes the NBA look bad and the NBA can probably terminate his ownership under the agreement he signed when he joined the league.

You think it'll get to the point of "The Zetas Cartel Money Laundering Bowl"?

I don't care if Mr. Robertson gives $3 million of his own money to endow some position like a professorship. That amount is not really a game-changer these days. And I'm not being "ungrateful", I'm just responding to the post about Gates donating his fortune to athletics.
When you think about an amount like $50 billion dollars, that can cause an enormous impact on the world. That's way bigger than U of M's total endowment by many multiples. If Gates or Warren Buffet one day woke up and said, "Screw this, forget about charities and medical research, I'm going to fund my alma mater's athletic departments instead!", well that is their money and there's nothing you or I can do anything about it. If they were to give those amounts, both Harvard and the Cornhuskers probably would be athletic powerhouses for decades on end, winning national championships to ad nauseum. But in the end, it's just sports. It may change the lives of a small number of scholarship athletes and the now-super-wealthy coaches, but for the rest of the students it doesn't do much. Probably the student tickets are now extremely cheap and the stadium has great wi-fi. But if they were to donate it to a scholarship fund... think about it: Most students getting a world-class education at U of M without having to worry about carrying a mortgage-sized debt and getting a great start on life. That would have a huge impact.

I'd rather that he gifted the $50 billion so that students from families of modest means wouldn't be saddled with tuition debt when they graduate.

I personally am looking forward to the day Brandon is able to announce the "Kim Jong Un Director of Athletic Marketing and Photoshopping".

We're proud but we're also not a bunch of Pollyanna's either. Until we see how the team performs in real time, there's no reason to imagine that there are going to be huge improvements vis a vis our main rivals.

He seems like a good solid young man. Best of luck to him this year and for the future.

I'd look askance at projects on Kickstarter or Indiegogo. They want to take your money. They don't want to give it back if they're successful. Think about the Oculus Rift brouhaha. This sounds similar. Plus, what are they giving back? A t-shirt? One solar panel? This company has already received $850K from the Department of Transportation already. Doesn't that already qualify as little contributions from us? http://www.sbir.gov/sbirsearch/detail/355949
I think it's time for them to look for an angel investor or a VC. Or I don't know when Title III of the JOBS act come into effect.

Yeah, she would fail the nanny test.
Me: Can we hire her as our nanny?
Somehow through the magic of the internets I am able to see some pic of her in a more natural state. She would definitely fail the Nanny Test.

While the SEC is killing it now, we're reflecting back on a team from 17 years ago.

Those aren't equivalent sanctions. The punishment meted out to those programs are for institutional problems. How you equate a kid's stupid lapse in judgment with a program's decision to overlook, for instance, a predatory pedophile's actions for over a period of years, is beyond belief.
