Not necessarily. If they seize your vehicle, the gov't can perform an "inventory search" even without a warrant.

No, that's Bongbong Marcos.

In disappointed that Judge Judy isn't going.

We can play Notre Dame and play other top schools. We just have to get the EMU and Toledo type games off the schedule.

I'm actually happy to have a limited edition typo-laden edition of Endzone!
|38 weeks 5 days ago||I don't remember MGoFans||
I don't remember MGoFans being so critical of commits in past years. We used to be pretty psyched for even fairly pedestrian-seeming 3*. Given that, the relative lack of enthusiasm here is pretty surprising.

Also, why do we need another WR? Unless this is to help solidify Gary....
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Rich Rod era||
I lived the Rich Rod era, and only the Rich Rod era, since I went to the law school from '08-'11. The year after we graduated, the team goes to the Sugar Bowl -- the most inept BCS bowl game I think I've ever seen.
The good thing is that I know I'm not a fair weather fan, because my love for the team developed in the middle of a typhoon.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Disappointed||
I have to say I was kind of disappointed. I used think that even though he couldn't win at the end, you couldn't question that he was trying and that he loved the school. So obviously he's a person and it's hard to love a school that canned you ... but it was still disappointing that he seems to think that the school gave him some kind of a raw deal, and he doesn't seem to really be on board with Jim being a "home run hire". I can understand that it's hard to love your successor when you've been booted out. But.... still kind of disappointing.

It's not so overbearing as Chop House, but the food is excellent. When my firm goes to Ann Arbor for recruiting, we like to rent the place out.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||Mathematically, that's going||
Mathematically, that's going to require one of two things: (1) somebody is going to have to leave or (2) Hatch is going to have to go on a medical scholarship.
At this point it's hard to see who would be up for leaving. We have a huge logjamb at the wing position, but all of those guys (except Irvin) were made by Beilein. In my mind, the only way we fit another player is by putting Hatch on a medical -- which is obviously controversial.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||I think this article||
I think this article reiterates how blessed we are to have Ross as a supporter of the program and the University. He gives generously and doesn't (appear to) threaten to take his ball and go home if things don't go his way.

I guess this was written before the spring game.
I think we can be much better, but I think it's going to take a while for Harbaugh to work his magic.
Then again, Hoke (or Mattison) turned over our defense overnight...maybe Harbaugh can do the same for our offense?

I predict some people on this board will flip out at how we look on offense.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||VCU is one of the few schools||
VCU is one of the few schools I really enjoy watching outside of Michigan. I think Smart is a great coach, and it will certainly be interesting to see how he does at Texas.
If Belein were to retire, it would be hard to look at anyone as a home run coach given that we probably aren't getting anyone like Calipari or Petino the Sr. Given that, I think Smart would be a home run hire. I would also be happy to see Jordan be promoted as the head coach.
Let's face it -- it's going to be really hard (or impossible) to say we're making a step up in coaching once Belein is gone. Honestly though, it may be possible to get a better recruiter that would be able to keep the team at least at the level that it is right now.

Maize looks a lot stronger to me, especially on defense with Mone and Peppers standing out.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||I don't really understand why||
I don't really understand why a person who is almost definitely a one and done or two and done would actually care about academics. They're likely not going to graduate from the university unless they take take an inordinate number of classes between pro seasons or come back full time. Of course that's aside from the whole learning stuff while you're there thing....
If Jaylen does come to Michigan, I would think it's because Belein and co. can probably teach him a lot of of the things that he's not already super awesome at.

They may be bigger than us, but I think we really do look faster than them.

I don't remember Funchess being that jacked. Woah.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||There are a lot of parents||
There are a lot of parents that go, as well as grad students who can be in their 30's. I wouldn't worry about it. In general I think it's more fun to go with people you know, no matter what section you're going to be in.

I have to admit that I'm a bit less worried about this than I was before. With our freshman coming on strong, I don't know that Caris will move the needle THAT much. I think we're going to be way more dependent on the improvement of our bigs.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||The differences in the law||
The differences in the law schools is huge. HUGE.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||I think Toronto is a fine||
I think Toronto is a fine school. But to your point, I'm surprised that Toronto is 16 whereas McGill is at 35. I think back in the day McGill was though of as being a lot more prestigious than Toronto, although Toronto has caught up and perhaps overtaken by a bit in recent times. However, the 16 vs. 35 differential doesn't really ring true to me.
EDIT: I think the country to country comparisons are even more subjective than the intra-national comparisons, and even more useless.

I love that the link is to "adidass".

It's a fun, but useless list. All things considered though, I don't think it's really unfair to U of M (and I'm saying this as a law school grad -- one of the highly ranked units at Michigan). The only schools that make me raise an eyebrow are UCLA and Toronto.
That having said, I would much rather have gone to Michigan for my undergrad than where I went (which is higher on the list) and would definitely encourage my daughter to go to Ann Arbor no matter where else she was accepted.

I don't disagree. However, there's also a difference between having competition and having the number of QBs that we'd be projected to have.
