Unless you're going to endow a chair or research building, schools like Harvard or MIT aren't going just take you because you can afford the tuition. These days, I've met a couple of high school kids whose parents have employed "coaches" or "consultants" to try to get them into elite schools. The admissions game is crazy these days.

For me it was a no-brainer. I got accepted to Michigan, the school threw in some scholarship money and living close to home, ie free laundry and meals on weekends made the decision pretty easy. My parents and I also made the trip to Northwestern and U of C. Got accepted to both but I think the thought of leaving their firstborn son in Chicago by himself was not an idea to their liking. I remember in undergrad, for a few consecutive summers at U of M, I approached a professor, wrote up a grant proposal with their assistance, and got funding for research projects, some I carried on into the school year. These professors weren't Nobel laureates but they were respected researchers with a decent number of publications and surprisingly approachable. When it came to writing recommendation letters and such, they were very obliging.

The truth is the truth. What about the kid going on some vendetta because he didn't like something that was said to him?

I find it hilarious that Sparty fans would choose to denigrate any Wolverine fans who didn't attend U of M as "Walmart Wolverines'. What do they call their own fans who didn't go to MSU? Dollar Store Sparties?
Any fan of the Wolverines is a Wolverine in my eyes.
This has got to be the funniest line I've read today, "...the courage to be an free-thinking individual in a sea of scarlet-clad sheep who worship nuts."

How many guys with true disabilities do you have? Goth guys? Older guys trying to start a second career? Guys from the military, not ROTC but who actually served? If your fraternity is a meritocracy blind to everything but character, ambition, and ability, then I applaud you guys.

So let me get this straight, and correct me if I'm wrong. The fraternity brothers learn the intricacies of an HVAC or the electrical system or they learn how to let's say, put up ceiling tile or do woodworking/furniture-making. And then they become certified repairmen and/or craftsmen able to repair these things and they do it themselves. If your fraternity does that, well, I commend you guys.
I seriously question that 's the case in those fraternities that were caught destroying those resorts. Because if someone knew the hard work and effort that took to make or fix something, they wouldn't be trashing someone else's work like they did in those resorts.

My question is if the NFL actually confiscated all the balls from the playoff teams? Does this routinely happen in every game and that the Patriots just got caught because Rosenberg has woody for ruining anything Michigan-related (ie. Sir Tom Brady)? Somebody posted last night that Aaron Rodgers likes his footballs overinflated and admitted that. Why isn't that a big news item? If all the elite NFL quarterbacks modify their footballs to their liking, what is the NFL going to do about it?

That's like if Doctors Without Borders members saying, "Hey we fight Ebola and all sorts of nasty illnesses in Third World countries but we live in a really cool house! And by the way, we need you to go through an application process to make sure you kind of look like us and are reasonably photogenic and 'fit in'. We kind of would hate if you've got bad skin, wear coke-rim glasses, have a comb-over, even though you have the world's greatest surgical or diagnostic skills."

So Jimmy Johnson complains about that in the NFL you have no family life or job security but he questions Harbaugh's decision to leave? Sounds like the epitome of hypocrisy to me.

I'm ecstatic about Harbaugh, but just like getting a bunch of 4-star and a scattering of 5-star recruits and fizzling on the field like a certain team in the Midwest, this staff has not proven anything yet.
