If someone donates a large gift to Michigan, I'm fine with some ulterior motive like the donor's name on a building. When Larry Page decides he wants to donate a billion bucks for the world's largest multi-building artificial intelligence complex up north and call it the Google-Page complex, let's send his check back? And it is only costing him slightly more than 600 million.....cheapskate.
|1 week 14 hours ago||People donate money for a||
People donate money for a host of different reasons, including naming a building. If the University told them one thing and the situation changed through no fault of their own, they have every right to withdraw their gift. Not a lot of people are writing $3 million checks and Michigan damn well respects those that do.

A similar theme for MSU alums and students when they act like assholes, which is often of late...."So you went to State because you were rejected by Michigan?"

All I want is a lousy tee-shirt and that ain't happening at midnight. Whatever happened to wine, women and song, and not necessarily in that order.

Does anyone know the approximate revenue generated per home game? With 109,000 people, it's got to be over $8 million considering concessions.
Six home games for season ticket holders might not sit well, partiularly when you are paying the additional dollars that are required to get the better seats.
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||There was never proof that||
There was never proof that the assistants were deflating balls. The texts had a couple of possible interpretations. The NFL attempted to make that allegation but their evidence was very suspect, ergo the claim "more likely than not." I never learned about that standard in law school.
The ideal gas law was the most salient piece of evidence that there was, and it was not used appropriately in the Wells report.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||One player? Not hardly.||
One player? Not hardly. It's about Goodell acting as judge, jury and executioner regardless of the evidence or the agreed upon punishment, with the players having no recourse until the next contract. In this instance it impacts one player, but every other player in the NFL is subject to similar treatment by Goodell.

I wonder if Seth would give us a non-binding approximate time for the new site to make its appearance?

I have always wondered if this issue was big enough for the NFLPA to threaten to go on strike notwithstanding the language of the contract. The Court's earlier decision did not address the substance of the case but only the power of the commissioner.
I also wonder whether Brady might be able to prevail in a slander case.
The NFL owners only understand one thing and that is money.

Or try Stubhub. With our shedule at home being what it is this year, and with eight games, it shouldn't be hard finding tickets for most games, particularly those that are OOC.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I disagree...this story is||
I disagree...this story is all about college football. It is about Joe Paterno putting his program and his ego first while damning a substantial number of children to lives filled with demons.
One would hope that while a similar tale of woe would not be repeated at other institutions and is unique to PSU, I could certainly see it happening elsewhere when another coach puts the program first. This is why it is important to keep harping on what went down at State College. It is a message that needs be repeated over and over.
It may not be young boys, but the saga of sexual assault at Tennessee that was recently settled should suggest to you that many programs still lack perspective and allow impropriety to be acceptable. Read some of the discovery in the Manning case. It isn't pretty.

Speaking of ass slaps, when my oldest son was three or four, he ran down the middle of our street, a cul de sac, fortunately, slapping his butt the whole time as he knew what he was doing was a "no no." I asked him why he did what he did and he said: "I couldn't help myself."

It's not quite as great if you are an out of state student.

Coin flips don't work terribly well if you lose a game on your schedule and its impact upon revenue. MSU already had two games. There is only one way to resolve the situation equitably.
IMO, the jury remains out on Warde.

If the rumor is true and Arkansas gets cut, that would be a shame because they might have been really solid by then. Frankly, I get little pleasure watching us blow out poor OOC teams. This year's OOC schedule is a joke amd while it may pad our stats, with the price of tickets, I'd rather play good teams, even if you lose one on occasion.
If we are as good as most of us think we are going to be under Harbaugh, beatng ND will help us with NC playoff consideration.

The scene in Saving Private Ryan when the clergymen come to tell the mother that three of her sons are dead. I lost it as did a good bud of mine with whom I watched the movie in a theater. Our wives had given both of us sons shortly before we saw the movie.

I thought that many Zika cases in adults are so mild you often don't know you are sick.

The beach is still in play if there is a family member to almost drown.
Maybe London to give the Brits a post-Brexit pep talk?
|5 weeks 16 hours ago||It is the weaking pound and||
It is the weakening pound and invariably the Euro or whatever currency countries leaving the EU will have that concerns me. A strong dollar is great for international travel but horrible for selling US goods overseas. That equates to a reduction in manufacturing and a loss of jobs.
Add the failures of countries like Greece to the equation, an agressive Putin and more concerns about Eastern Europe and yeah, Brexit will suck and be felt here in the US.

It's beyond insane. If you attend Michigan and go to med school as an OOS student, it will cost you 235,832 for undergrad and 315,385 for med school per cost of attendance figures that I just looked up. That's 551,000, largely after-tax dollars, and I suspect from having just put two kids through Michigan, that the numbers are low.
You are either going to be paying the equivalent of a big mortgage virtually forever or you better have considerable family wealth. Either way, this is a disaster that gets worse by the day.
College level education needs to be redone from beginning to end.

Great stuff that makes Mgoblog different from most sports blogs.
Thanks for posting.

I understand your affliction. I always use my DVR to record games so I can go back and watch the games again wthout interruption.

Put me in the 3:30 camp. I enjoy a late breakfast or lunch in town or tailgating before going to the Stadium. Because I like to watch the teams warm up, which puts me at the Stadium about 11:00, everything feels a bit compressed. Depending on where your seats are, 3:30 games can also provide shade on hot September Saturdays.
|7 weeks 12 hours ago||There are two ways around my||
There are two ways around my perceived issue. Either do conference expansion/realignment with, say, four conferences having two divisions of ten teams each and a conference playoff. You have created an eight team playoff for the NC.
Alternatively, have the comittee picking teams for the NC games make a rule where you have to have played in a conference championship game to be eligible. Of course, you have the problem of two superteams being in the same division, but that would be a rare exception and someone is always crying the blues regardless.
|7 weeks 14 hours ago||I disagree. At the very||
I disagree. At the very least, you are playing a team that is very solid if not highly ranked at the end of a long season. On top of that, every one playing in conference championship games have players that are undergoing wear and tear and running the risk of injury. Keep things even for everyone in terms of the number of games.
|7 weeks 15 hours ago||Maybe ND joins a conference||
Maybe ND joins a conference one of these days. It is grossly unfair, IMO, for any team to be considered for NC games unless they have played a conference championship game.

Crater Lake is a great hike to do in the early morning before the early afternoon thunderstorms roll in and still get back to Aspen in time for lunch and a viewing of the human scenery, spectacular in its own right.
There are so many spectacular places in the Rockies, both in the US and in Canada. Then there is the Pacific Northwest.

It's all good for the kids and it's all good for Michigan. If there is a recruit out there who doesn't know who Harbaugh is, I'd be very surprised.
The Michigan brand is alive and well and is constantly in the news. That type of publicity is hard to come by in the off season.
