Ohio passed similar legislation banning players from unionizing months ago. One source: http://www.nbc24.com/news/story.aspx?id=1047025#.VJRUuV4AE0

Yes, but Brown is in the bottom tier of the Ivy League, along with Dartmouth. Many Big Ten schools are better than these two as far as research goes (e.g., Michigan, Northwestern, Wisconsin, and Illinois). I could see him leaving for one of the mid-tier Ivies like Cornell or Penn to avoid the athletics conflict.

While it is true that Manwe and the other Valar sent Gandalf (and the other four Istari) to Middle Earth as part of a master plan, it was Eru himself who revived Gandalf.
From The Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien (Houghton Mifflin paperback edition, 2000):
"[Gandalf] was sent by a mere prudent plan of the angelic Valar or governors; but Authority had taken up this plan and enlarged it, at the moment of its failure. 'Naked I was sent back - for a brief time, until my task is done'. Sent back by whom, and whence? Not by the 'gods' whose business is only with this embodied world and its time; for he passed 'out of thought and time'." (p. 203)
As Tolkien said in this letter, Gandalf was not sent back by "the gods" (e.g., Manwe as you suggested), rather "Authority" intervened since the Valar's plan failed. Tolkien refers to Eru as "Authority" in other letters (e.g., "Authority" is listed under "Eru" in the index), so it is clear that it was Eru who was responsible for reviving Gandalf.

I thought we killed each other on the peak of Zirakzigil, yet here you are wearing white and looking stronger than ever. Eru Iluvatar always played favorites, the bastard.

This news is bittersweet. Brady Hoke is a great man and a good player's coach, but unfortunately, he probably isn't the best coach for Michigan right now. Good luck to him wherever he ends up.

Ohio State has 37 varsity sports according to their website, which is similar to the number we offer.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||28 points||
This defense gave up 35 points, 7 of which were with a very short field due to Gardner's interception. We can blame the defense for giving up 28 points. That is good against this Ohio State offense.

It was probably the best TV show of the early 90s, but it pales in comparison to The Wire and Breaking Bad (which isn't saying much since almost every TV show in history is dwarfed by these two).
