Sounds like Trey or his father got the fundamentals right. If you don't save you won't have anything down the road.
As for guidance with investment decisions, to expect you would be sophisticated enough to manage significant amounts of money after two years of college, that's just not going to happen. There are many professionals ready, willing and able to help provide competent advice including many Michigan alums.

It seems like our football players manage to put on meaningful weight, and significant amounts of it, over their stay at Michigan.

Burke was living on a strict budget and saving money when he started getting paid NBA money. I'm not sure what his grip is unless what he saved was invested poorly.

Grant Newsome has more surgeries to go. Ugh. That is not good news or perhaps it's my lack of knowledge. Perhaps one of our Mgoorthopods could weigh in on this. With all the time Grant spent in the hospital, it seemed the injury was more serious than a typical ACL tear, Sam's optimism notwithstanding.

On top of that, giving them some very different looks in the second half will be huge.
OSU is a highly talented, well coached team, as we are, and I would like nothing better than beating those MFers in Columbus.

The athletic department's nutritionists are highly skilled with advanced degrees and have one job and that is to ensure our athletes eat appropriately to support what they are trying to achieve.
Lots of people work to support Michigan athletics which is why the average annual cost for each football player is north of 100K, not counting the scholarship.

There is a team of nutritionists who work with all athletes. The team is headed by Caroline Mandel,

Thank you to your daughter for her service to our country, and I hope she continues to be safe.
Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, but very few around here do more than yap. Your daughter, on the other hand, has done something to protect us and for that, in my opinion, she is special.

I live an hour out of Cbus. All the MacDonalds sell large drinks with OSU stuff on the plastic cups. Makes me throw up into my mouth a bit if I want a Coke. On the bright side, just put the cup in your window when finished, As I mentioned, If your car has Michigan regalia or plates, I'd definitely rent something for the day.
In large part, it's not the students or the alums that create incidents. The students might on occasion make a comment or drunk, which works both ways of course, but it's the neanderthals with large foreheads, beer guts and missing teeth one should fear.
Ann Arbor is a much safer place to be for The Game than Columbus.

If it were me, I'd rent a car. Nothing is safe from those heathens. Ohio Stadium is a good stadium to watch a game and it will be packed.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||I'm getting up there in years||
I'm getting up there in years and my fandom is as strong as ever. What I have been able to do is get some perspective. I used to toss and turn most nights after a loss. I no longer do that.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I think we have a very good||
I think we have a very good team with an incredibly good defense, but like rankings, I will wait until the end of the season, before I make any pronouncements. Having said that, Harbaugh has this team playing up to its potential. I see the season going well if Speight figures things out as we will surely need him to be spot on down the road.

As to the timing of the summer signing period, how close would it be to the ten days of summer camps? Is there a potential conflict that is intentionally being created to make camps harder to hold?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I've been of the opinion that||
I've been of the opinion that Harbaugh was, at least in part, trying to take the Michigan name to the center of the sporting news. The program's history was not as front and center as it was before RichRod and Hoke. JH succeeded admirably. Every recruit in America, whether they come here or not, knows an awful lot more about the program than the did before Harbaugh's arrival.
Now, with Harbaugh winning lots of games and with the program ranked so highly, I'm not sure it is necessary for JH to approach camps with the same fervor, although Harbaugh might do so simply because it helps kids and promotes football.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Jimmy,if he feels strongly||
Jimmy,if he feels strongly enough, might be able to convince Manuel to get on board with an antitrust suit. You may not remember but last spring, when the NCAA was talking about limiting camps, there was some noise from congress which had to be heard by the NCAA.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||When I watched the presser||
When I watched the presser earlier, Harbaugh was somber and seemed very concerned about Newsome. Sure hope the good orthopaedists at U of M hospital can do what is necessary to get him back on the field next year. When a coach tells you to keep a player in your prayers, it is not a good sign.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||If we continue to win,||
If we continue to win, Harbaugh will get there. We had a few lean years after Carr left and it will take some time. Meyer walked into a fully stocked cupboard of talent.

Jourdan Lewis catch indeed...long term highlight film material.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||In a sense, you already have||
In a sense, you already have something akin to an eight team playoff when you have a conference championship game. They may not be the best teams in the playoff in a particular conference, the B1G EAst this year comes to mind, but often it is pretty close.
Just my .02 but I'd like to see four superconferences with 10 teams in each division. In the B1G, one of the divisions could be the old Big Ten as it was before expansion.
If anyone remains an independent, they would not be considered in the NC picture. It is simply not fair to play one fewer game.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Considering what he started||
Considering what he started with and his initial limited ability to recruit, along with playing in the SEC, it was still a noteworthy performance. In many of the games he lost to ranked opponents while at Vandy, his teams were competitive.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||At schools with storied||
At schools with storied football programs, I believe alumni generosity and performance on the football field have some degree of correlation. At some point, sooner than later, Franklin will be on the hot seat. If PSU doesn't play in a bowl game this season, there will be an awful lot of noise.
When he was at Vandy, Franklin's turnaround of a hapless team was impressive. At PSU, quite the opposite.

Positive thoughts for you and your wife. Please keep us updated on her progress.

I can't tell you about the Chicago market for MD's, but since there is a nationwide shortage in many medical specialties, it's a definite seller's market. While Northwestern is certainly a good school, I also have a hard time imagining that its networking comes close to touching what Michigan alums enjoy. It's a numbers game and Michigan's size dwarfs Northwestern's.

Sam Webb and Harbaugh were talking yesterday and the interview was aired this morning. Mone is still very limited in practice and they are adding more things to what he can do, but there is no real chance he will play Saturday.

During parts of the RichRod and Hoke era, other endings might have been more appropriate.
I agree with WD that "you suck" is a bit classless for such a high class university, sorority girl football game attire notwithstanding.

You need to improve your peripheral vision and/or, as pointed out already, get some good sunglasses.

Not really...it's been in the works for a couple of years. Miles was alsmot fired last November and grumbling has gone on for a while.
Miles is 63 and while I wish him well, I hope he goes someplace else if he goes anywhere.
