People complained about it and they did step up the food offerings. It's not great but it's OK. Beats paying through the nose for food at the stands.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Stadium employee here||
First, yes please, consider joining the staff. Being understaffed sucks.
Tower attendants and ( I think ) guest services people get paid hourly.
Also don't think you're going to just hang out and watch the game. You will be asked to , you know, work and stuff. There is a dress code. You're only allowed to miss 1 game/year, so no calling in sick for the less-than-exciting opponents. You're expected to be at the stadium well before kickoff and you'll probably be standing all day. And think about what you may have to deal with - unruly / drunk fans - it's not always fun.
Having said that - I've only missed 1 or 2 home games in the past decade, made a few dollars and got some free meals to boot. Beats paying for tickets !
PS getting on the staff will offer opportunities for other sporting events, the spring game, commencements, etc.
|5 days 8 hours ago||You get paid according to how||
You get paid according to how much of the game you get to watch. Ushers and ticket takers - you get little and like it - you get to watch most of the game. Other folks who don't get to watch get paid hourly, but don't quit your day job.
Also they've been giving us lunch the past few years, so that's a bonus - if you get to the food before it's gone.

So I'm really, really tempted to buy the rings, taunt buckeye fans online with them for a while, then melt them down into an "M" shaped paperweight.
Or am I being extreme?

I think it's more of a case they just didn't care about the rings; or championships.

This sucks big time. I remember reading that he had a close call with the flesh eating bacteria thing, but didn't know he was still having problems.
I'll make sure the neighbors wake up to Slayer.
edit: Hanneman wrote a lot of the music for Slayer's songs.... will they be the same? Allow me to say again:

Well if they have such an amazing and extensive policy, how is it this guy was stuck with such a bill?
I had the misfortune of dealing with University bureaucracy more than once, it ain't pretty.

First, thanks for posting this. Don't know why you're getting downvoted. It's not April 1 so I have to assume this has at least a grain of validity. (clicks on link ) My God. The WWE has a pic of Michigan Stadium front and center.
I will start by saying I was at the Pontiac Silverdome Wrestlemania. I was a youngster. Wrestling was in its heyday, and kids thought it was real. Hulk Hogan bodyslammed and pinned Andre The Giant and it was great.
Having said that... if Brandon allows this to happen... guh, I have no words. NO. Just NO.

Anyone remember this guy?
played at about 260...
that's a bit lighter than 350 though... I'm sure his coaches will get him in shape or he'll sit on the bench.

|19 weeks 4 days ago||Not Apple?||
Apple is rumored to have been working on a similar setup, or maybe Apple and Intel have worked together?
Anyway, the Big Ten network is one of the only reasons I still have cable. If it wasn't for that and a few select channels, I wouldn't have cable at all.

Nice to see him rebound after last season where he didn't play much due to injury. Guy got a lot of hate (unjustified) when he transferred, nice to see him do well.

We aren't still pining for Forcier, are we? I mean it would have been great to have him around, but he apparently either didn't go to class or didn't realize that some college classes actually require you to you know, study and stuff.

He redshirted his first year, but that was "just a redshirt". He could still get a medical redshirt for next season.

You're assuming the new helmet will be more expensive, and if it is more expensive, that people won't be willing to pay more to get extra safety. If anything the NFL would probably love to have newer, safer helmets so the multi million dollar investments (star QBs, etc) remain on the playing field.

1. No one should care what Eleven Woh-yahs thinks.
2. RR isn't the coach here anymore. We all know RR managed to piss of about 1/2 of the former players (and from what I can tell, the previous coach). Unlikely he intended to, but he did. The losing, and the non-existant defense only made everything worse.
RR will likely do well at Arizona. I hope he does.
We have Hoke, and he's doing well. The only flaw I have seen so far is Borge's questionable usage of Denard, and perhaps some issues with recruiting WR's and RB's. Considering where this program was just 2 years ago, those are problems I can deal with.

Doesn't matter if it is on Fox or MSNBC. What Mealer has done with the help of Barwis is nothing short of incredible and I fail to see how the fact that its on Fox matters one bit.

Brock Mealer's story is inspiring and you should be ashamed for not being interested/complaining due to what channel it is being told on.
