I don't care. We all don't care. I don't knoe what upvoting is or means, and I don't care.
I don't know what I di d, and I don't care.
Only an imbicile would care, of that I am 100% sure.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I don't even know what||
I don't even know what upvoting means. Seemed kind of silly. Won't do it again.
I guess my thought is "Why is it even possible, and what imbicile would care?"
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Are you familiar with the||
Are you familiar with the concept of advertising?
How many commercials do you see for entities that "were (not) pretty well known before."
I bet that the PR value of the camp dramatically exceeding the expectations of IMG, and the MI negotiators. Good for IMG.
In the future, Michigan will point tom the PR value when negotiating the next deal, if a deal is allowed by the NCAA.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I just thought the messgae,||
I just thought the messgae, including "Build your camp" was interesting, given the fact that I did not recall any writer writing an article with the angle on what Michigan going to IMG meant for IMG.
Hopefully, the negotitor for UM was smarter than me, and will be in the future, when writing the deal. (If there is a future deal).
I don't know what Michigan paid to camp there, but the PR value for IMG was significant.
I just found this to be an interesting side topic on an otherwise slow Sunday.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I stand with Yost on this.||
I stand with Yost on this. Don't play them in any sport until they join the Big Ten.
As long as they get what they want, they will never come to the table.
I can think of dozens of home and away deals I would like to see that would be just as good as playing them. And, there would always be the chance of a bowl game match up.
If all the Big Ten teams ignored them, they would come to the table. The only reason it did not work last time was because MSU was trying to establish a program and credibility. If the Big Ten sould circle the wagons, they would be requesting a sit down in no time.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||I'll take it.||
One more thing to which I would have said "I'll take it" if someone would have predicted it one year ago.
I don't think Michigan is going to spend much time, if any, out of the top 25 in the JH era.
|17 weeks 23 hours ago||Yes. So is UCLA. Not even||
Yes. So is UCLA. Not even close to the caliber of Michigan and Texas, and what a degree means for someone living in their area. Cal is second fiddle to Stanford, and UCLA goes head to head with USC.
And that's not even taking into account the football facilities.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Delance kept his family||
Delance kept his family happy, and Texas is the only public school even close to Michigan, as far as the value of the degree is concerned. And, if he ends up living there for the rest of his life, which is highly likely, more doors open for him with a Texas pedigree.
Best of luck to the kid.
Now, with that over, and PSU getting killed by Georgia, it's time to watch the Citrus again on the DVR......
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Delance||
The latest I read on Delance (I don't remember the source for the quote) was along the lines of:
"My Mom wants me down the street, but it's up to me to decide what's best for me, and for my future."
All the best to these kids, whatever they decide. I can't imagine being that age, with that much attention on my personal decision, dealing with all of the pressures coming for various angles.
The fact that Delance would consider going to a program where the head coach will likely be gone by next year, if not by NSD, shows the pressure he is under. Or maybe it's just a love for TX, which is understandable. Great school, and probably the way to go, if he plans on spending the rest of his life in that area.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Is that from the twitter||
Is that from the twitter accounts, hacked twitter accounts or fake twitter accounts? I believe what gets posted on there even less than the main stream media.
Even if they go elsewhere, it's great to be in the mix, and have Michigan in the discussion on the air. You can't buy that type of publicity, outside of the SEC.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Letter to Mom||
I applaud your persona, as portrayed in the media. (Pardon the qualification, but I have little faith in the accuracy of all of the entities that filter and process information).
If what I have read about you, and your son, is even close to approximating reality, I beleive your family would be welcome editions to the Michigan family.
Thank you for your efforts. I can't adequately express how delightful it is to hear the media portrayals of you, and your son's, emphasis on the quality of academics.
I earned two degrees at Michigan. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to earn my second degrree at other institutions with even greater recognized reputations. But, as a Michigan resident, private programs carried a very high premium. I sought the advice of a family member who was a Michigan grad:
"Everywhere I go, all over the world, people know what the University of Michigan is, and what a degree from it means. My degrees open doors for me everywhere. Michigan is only equaled or exceeded by some Ivy League schools, Stanford or Notre Dame, depending on your area of interest. And, you run into more Michigan alumni in positions of impotance than any of those schools."
I've found what she said to be true.
I have realyed this out of respect for the media portaryal of your efforts as a Mother.
Best of luck to you and your son. You both seem truely blessed, and I'm sure the future is bright, regardleess of the path chosen.

"In this day and age of bombastic narcissists who get all of the attention, he's really that kind of modest and respectful, and has personal integrity," Wozniak said.

|19 weeks 19 min ago||I think some of these kids||
I think some of these kids honestly don't know, and some just like to string it out.
If he has not been swayed by now by the differences in the international reputation of the degree, and the utilization of the TE in the offense, among many other factors, he's probably just stringing it out.
Best of luck to him, either way. He's a unique talent.
Luckily, I'm not at all concerned about weakness at TE for MI.
|22 weeks 17 hours ago||I'd like to see the Big Ten||
I'd like to see the Big Ten do as well as possible. That results in maximum dollars coming back into the Michigan coffers.
I'd love to see 2 teams make it, even rivals. Just show me the money. I can deal with the ego issues, while the athletic department continues to build state of the art facilities.
Busines is business.
|22 weeks 20 hours ago||Deep Breath and a Cold Beverage||
Lighten up, Francis and company.
Remember the history of this team and it's players.
How many coaches, including position coaches, in how many years?
This is a year one team. We should expect penalties, and blown time outs.
The turnovers will come when the defense matures, and the players learn the complete bag of tricks from their new coaches. (When the team begins to be capable of creating/forcing more errors, instead of just hoping an error by the opposition).
Top 20. 9-3. Bowl bound, and in the hunt for some of the best recruits in the country.
I say: Ahead of schedule, and Go Blue!

Pardon me Sir or Madam.
Quite ironic that the misunderstanding partially resulted from my lack of comprehension of your post and intent.
Here's to Jordan Elliott, and few more by tomorrow night!

|22 weeks 22 hours ago||Cornerstone||
I'll always remeber this team as the cornerstone of the new era of Michigan football.
9-3, top 20, with a bowl game still to go.
I'm almost upset that I'm not more upset at the loss. But, the worst is far behind us, and the future is glowing Maize and Blue!
Now for some big Hello posts?!?!
|27 weeks 17 hours ago||Domers||
I can almost hear the domer drivel about how big their GT win now looks....
I don't empathize with FSU fans at all, and it's not like they lost to Florida.
I still feel the sting from when they came into Ann Arbor and destroyed Michigan.
Hopefully, we will have a redemption game in the future.....
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Receivers||
I've seen at least three deep throws that looked like bad overthrows, but were at least partially due to receivers slowing down on their route.
It's not all on Rudock.

On a cold afternoon, after a day of skiing, we stumbled upon Brown Dog Pizza.
It's part owned by Jeff Smokevitch, who played on the 1997 team.
The walls are full of great memorabilia.
Great pizza, too.

"Stop by our tailgate. We'll be flying a Michigan flag" does not really work very well.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||They Know||
MSU fans know they have already seen the best that they can be.
They also know that Michigan is not just back, it's going back to being a nationally dominant program.
Let them have their fun. It's the end of the run for them, and they know it.
|30 weeks 23 hours ago||Tune out||
I learned great game watching technique from my Dad:
Turn the sound on the TV off, and watch while listening to the radio broadcast.
When Speilman does the games, I listen to the TV. Otherwise, I tune out, especially when Major Matt Moron is calling the game.
|31 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks for the post-I had not heard about him.||
The two players I can think of that I would have most loved to see as multi-year starters are Antonio Bass and Matt Gutierrez. (Not that I didn't like Henne. Loved him. I just wish Gutierrez had gotten his shot).
|35 weeks 1 day ago||Game||
It depends on where you are staying and what you want.
If you are at city center, the Aria is a great place to camp.
If you want sports book viewing, go to Wynn, Mandalay, or Ceasers.
Any venue will comply to your request to tune in to the opener.

Surprised it was not THE os football.
And, pointing out a 16 year reign implies comparison to a superior kingdom.
Leaders and Best.
Let's keep them from posting anything about the series record:
13 more wins in a row, then they can yap some more. Until then:

Just glad to see we still have a shot at Ron Johnson. I thought he was all USC for sure.....
|48 weeks 3 days ago||I bet you are a great lawyer!||
I bet you are a great lawyer! I agree with you completely. That's exactly the way it should be handled.
Unfortunately, the majority of candidates today announce that they are forwarding the draft contract to their lawyer as if they are firing off a warning shot. They then come back with a laundry list of requests, most of which are trivial.
When I decide to hire a new associate/partner, my first concern is how they will perform in ther role. The close second is how they will represent themselves and the partnership. Turning "a friendly discussion into a polarizing negotiation" is a well put example of not representing yourself well.
