If not, I'll take osu and the points. It could get very ugly fast, but at least it is only going to last 60 minutes.

I expected no more from this team than what they have delivered. Hoped? Yes, I hoped for much more, just as I have always hoped for more from all Michigan's teams, including the 1997 team. I had hoped they would dominate WSU and win an undisputed championship.
This team is young. The staff is "young" in it's execution of it's long range plans.
My only question to the author is: how much more did you expect?
Ask me in 3 years if I'm disappointed, upset, or disillusioned.
One thing I would never do is climb up my friends back, and defacte down the back of his shirt, like it seems the author did in constructiing his "story."
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Old as the hills||
This stuff reminds me of the struggles of the PGA tour, with regard to viewers calling in rules violations.
Twisting, pinching, biting, spitting, etc....part of the game since it's inception. Young men get frustrated and act out. It's only an issue now because of the multitude of camera feeds, and the 24 X 7 media machine that requires regular feedings.

|4 weeks 5 days ago||Synopsis||
We got beaten up.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||No||
No, we did not. What's the average player age on this team? What's DG's number of total games played at QB? How long has it been since Michigan had NO ONE in the secondary?
What we just watched is pretty much what we should have expected, if we were objective realists. My only surprise is that the sread was so off.
We will look back at this game, the osu, and this year as another series of labor pains.
What will be delivered is going to make everyone proud. Personally, I would only be concerned if the current staff were below average recruiters........
|5 weeks 5 days ago||The obvious: We won't be able||
The obvious: We won't be able to run the ball. Their coverage will lapse, but their pass rush won't. DG makes good decsions moving in the pocket, uses his feet when necessary, and the D is good enough to keep a horrible offence from scoring many points.

I bet if you looked up msu's record as a favorite, and Michigan's record as an underdog, you would be very pleased with the numbers!

I'm not a lawyer either. My understanding is that states can write whatever they can get passed into their constituion. But if they write something that cannot be upheld on the federal level, then it will obviously fail when it is challenged accordingly. Take, for example, the recent marijuana laws in some states.
Can Michigan bail out Detroit? Of course it can, if it is willing to divert it's tax revenues. Do the majority of the voters in Michigan wish to do so? Is it political suicide to propose to do so?
I'm betting on the 10 cents on the dollar scenario. And they may be lucky to get that much. Detroit is only the first of many, public and private. Sometimes, it's good to be first. Especially when the line will grow long.
The PBGC does not have nearly enough money to pay 10 cents on the dollar for everything that is currrently underfunded in the private sector. And the public sector? IL? CA? And that's with the market at an all time high. What happens if it crashes:
The governments next move will be to roll everyone's 401 into the new "Social Security" program.
It's the only trough left big enough to feed the hogs.

Local pubs will only have the other football on, as well as hurling.
I would call ahead to the American hotels like the Four Seasons, etc. You can call toll free and get put through to the bars, and ask the lads/lasses on site.
I would also check to see if the US ambassador is a UM alum. Maybe you can invite yourself over!
I watched the UM/ND game in Paris a couple of years ago via slingbox and Wi-Fi. It was adequate, but I would not count on a robust bandwidth connection over there.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks!||
Thank you so much for your reply. I have previously tried doing a search through the UM Library/Photo archive service, and failed to locate it. I want to get one for my UM house mate who recently treated me to a seat at the B-ball final in Atlanta. Thanks, again!
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Your assistance would be greatly appreciated!||
I once saw a smaller print of the photo in the upper right corner of your second photo in the bar area of the Campus Inn. I have been trying to find it ever since. Can you tell me how you obtained it/where I might find a copy? Thanks!
|24 weeks 6 days ago||My point was that Michigan||
My point was that Michigan does not need to waste time and resources in middle of nowhere Oklahoma on a QB they were not convinced wanted to become a Michigan man. It seems they were not sold on him, nor he on them. The fact that he is now going to Alabama does not change those facts. Michgan has no reason to suffer QB envy over a high school kid.
Current QB depth envy is an entirely different subject....
|25 weeks 8 hours ago||Passed Over?||
Not sure about the passed over comment. Not wasting time on kids from distant lands, who are showing questionable interest, is not a bad thing. (Not saying that was the case here. I don't know).
I will say I am very happy with the QB chart.....

I don't have an aboslute favorite, but I sure would have liked to have seen Matt Gutierrez and Antonio Bass leading some teams.

They are not advised/ allowed to ask if potential employees are gay, or not. They are allowwed to ask if they have girlfriends, are married, or like girls. The onus is on the candidate to sue if they find those questions descimainatory.
I'm all for equal opportunity and employment. I'm agaist sexual descrimination and sexual orientation descrimination. But, just for a second, consider the difference in marketabbility, and profitability, between a gay and hetero NFL employee.
If their net value to a corporation is more, or less, should they not be compensated same?
Just as an example: An openly gay superstar could become an icon in San Francisco. Such a person should not be hindered in doing so.
But, an openly gay player in a less tolerant market may be of less value to the parent corporation.
Equal is equal. You cannot have it both ways. The EEOC and it's rules already amply protect those who could be descriminated aginst. And, I have no doubt, ample legal power will be brought to bare to continue to protect gays and transgenders who choose to maintain privacy with regard to their orientation.
Personally, I'm shocked a female kicker has not successfully sued for lack of equal opportunity and access. That's more likely a front burner issue, as many soccer players seek to prolong their career and generate revenue.

I assume that if he perceived he had a shot at upward mobility on the defensive staff, he would have stayed.
I look at this as a positive. The defensive staff is otherwise solid for years to come.
Then again, I'm the King of rationalizations.....

Best of luck, Will. May you be one of the few who thrives in the NFL, and becomes a champion in everything in life.
