I just returned from London recently. Great experience. There is actually an unofficial alumni group there, which has a Facebook page. It might be a good place to find some others who would enjoy going.

I completely agree about the schedule. Even though last year was one of the most mediocre in recent memory, I really think the B1G is going to be competing with the SEC for toughest conference honors over the next five years. Bill O'Brien should have won coach of the year last year, and the normal "bottom tier" schools like NWU and IU show promise. Who knows what could come with Purdue and Wisconsin.
Not saying we won't win those games--we will--but the tougher those teams get, the more they wear you down for the top-tier teams (i.e. OSU and Nebraska).

I don't work out at their facility. However, I have been using his plans for a while now. They are exhausting, but they have given me the greatest strength gains and best fitness I've ever had (and I've tried a lot of plans). Furthermore, I have a few friends that play various professional sports, and they swear by Barwis. I would definitely recommend him, and wish I were as lucky as you to be in the GR area.

Students can't resell the tickets. You only get one ticket, it's tailor made for your ID, and you have to pick it up with ID in hand at the Stadium directly before the game.

I'm really surprised nobody has brought up Bob Diaco in any of the coaching replacement conversations yet, whether it be Auburn, Tennessee or Cal. I don't know that he's a main contender, but I would think his name would get thrown around.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||No excuse.||
Playcalling aside, there is no excuse for not utilizing the tools you have available. With the most electrifying player in college football rushing for over a hundred yards in the first half, Borges' adjustment is to take him out of the game. With a quarterback who has done nothing but win offensive weekly awards since starting out of the blue, you decide to run it up the gut non-stop for an entire half, not making it past the 50 yard line the entire time.
This is not about Borges "not having the tools". It's about him not having the expertise to use them. Find somebody who does. Or, at the very least, can learn how. That is the hallmark of a good OC.

If you think the hatred for Al Borges' incompetancy stems solely from the criteria you mention above, you're missing the mark. Today exemplifies a long line of grievances. It does not define it.

I would hate to defend your friend, but nonetheless, at only one billion below Michigan's, and with 1/5 of the student body, theirs is nonetheless substantial among the top in the nation. Maybe he was referring to a per capita basis.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||It depends on how you look at||
It depends on how you define "performed better". IIRC, Michigan's didn't lose as much both numerically and proportionately. However, becaue of it's large size, not only does Harvard's endownment hve a greater opportunity for loss, but it also has the ability for greater investment in divergent areas which may have a higher risk/return.
Speaking generally, just about all major endowments took a huge hit during the downturn. The two notable performers during that time to my knowledge were Texas and ND.

You're posting this in a boardroom with a large Lions contingent. Your vexations will fall on deaf ears.

Just because my thoughts on your post are critical does not mean that I'm "in a bad mood". I'll look at those suggested threads once you take a look at the MgoBoard tab and see how many of those posts deal with mere irrelevant conjecture in their original post (hint: out of 15, yours is the only one).
|1 year 1 week ago||There's a difference between||
There's a difference between bringing up a topic that is "OT" and throwing out random thoughts on a board, about an already random topic, for the sole purpose to invoke discussion. My response has nothing to do with the topic of the post. It has everything to do with the way in which it was brought up. I dont think this place is, or ever has been, a board where you can come and just spout off random thoughts on random subjects, like "OT- My thoughts on Chocolate Chip Cookies. They're great when newly baked, but then they get hard after a while and I don't like it when they're crunchy".
OP's original post is more akin to a comment on an overall discussion. It does not appear to me to be a discussion in and of itself. Saying things like "Rory's mind is in San Fran" and "Phil is simply enjoying the good life right now" are wholely irrelevant to any sort of discussion about the PC. He brings up no news, cites to no sources.
Please tell me how it is anything less than a random Bleacher Report article?
If you truly believe that is the direction of the board, then I apologize, but we are on different sides of the fence.

No offense, but I think this is a little bit of an abuse of the board..... Bleacher Report is meant for this.

Maybe I'm confused, but I'm not sure what you're referring to with the AD "kicking back" money to the University. The University of Michigan and the AD are wholely separate entities--a relationship equivalent to the Government and the Post Office. The AD keeps the money it makes in its own budget, and the University the same. The two don't blend funds whatsoever. I think the below poster is correct about the 300k being DB's

Maybe I'm the only one, but I see this getting lowered to a disorderly conduct in a pleading deal. IF he's the starter, he won't miss a game.

I'm in the minority on this, but even though I think ND has a very tough schedule, I really believe that by the year's end it won't seem as difficult as it does now. I think they've scheduled a lot of names that initially seem like they would be difficult, but in this particular year, will not pose as much difficult as in the past. i.e. Miami is going to really struggle this year, Oklahoma will not be the Oklahoma of the past, and we will start to see the Harbaugh/Luck effect at Stanford. If they field a solid squad, they would be able take two out of those three.
Again, I realize I'm in a small minority on this.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||What hurts ND more isn't the||
What hurts ND more isn't the immediate effects of a solid DE in Aaron Lynch leaving, but the perception that is beginning to take hold of the program now that multiple top recruits are leaving in short periods of time. Kelly is going to begin facing a very tough battle on the recruiting fronts, both from his own efforts as well as the negative recruiting that will take place regarding this.

|1 year 5 weeks ago||Mich undergrad, ND grad student here...||
Just to follow up on the original post: I've heard some differen things in terms of how things will pan out. First, in speaking with a football player, according to him, it's Golson's job to lose at this point. The only concern with Golson is that he is not grasping the offense like Kelly wants him to. However, his immense talent makes up for that. Either way, not only do fans want Rees not to start, but the players don't as well. People love him as a person, but he's just not the right fit at QB.
The field turf thing I haven't heard at all, and I just refuse to believe that. ND's field is by far one of the worst in the nation. It's not kept up very well, uneven at points, etc. But ND fans and the administration view it like Lambeau... regardless of quality, it's hallowed ground. I think Kelly has stepped on enough toes already and that one is going too far. The administration isn't going to undertake immense construction and millions of dollars to please an 8-5 coach.
Finally, ND fans are more than delusional, they're insecure. It's as though you cannot speak of another school because merely stating that another school is good, to them, is saying that ND is bad. What's worse is that the majority are exteremely uninformed (i.e. believing their business school is #1 in the nation because BusinessWeek not USNWR, said so, or that the reason they aren't good in football is because of their high academic standards for incoming athletes). The extereme misinformation, mixed with their immense passion, equals for the delusion which you are talking about.
OP, I'd love to know what forums you're scouting out. I can't seem to find any decent ones no matter how much I look. Please post where you read, I'd appreciate it.

Joe D is the Matt Millen of NBA executives.
My two cents: I still don't understand why Lambeer isn't coaching them. If anybody has proven they should be brought back to the team, its him.

That's really just diappointing and sad to hear. I've been looking forward to how he'd perform like it was a Fall Saturday. On the bright side, I imagine he's going to be heading into the league with a chip on his shoulder next year..
|1 year 16 weeks ago||My roommate and I just||
My roommate and I just started a Barwis Workout program that he offers on his website. I imagine it's not nearly as intense as the workouts he offers at his gym, but nonetheless, it's incredibly intense. My roommate was a DII Captain of a national championship bball team and during the first week of the program even he was struggling. Three weeks in though and both of us are already feeling more energetic, in better shape, and stronger. To confirm what other people have said on here though, yes, Barwis loves legs. I usually ride my bike to and from school. Whenever I do a leg day of a Barwis program, I have to end up walking 30 mins back home that night because theres no way I can peddle.

Basically, Dantonio got up and interrupted a coach to stop him from making the conference solely about the University of Michigan, thus making the conference solely about the Michigan-Michigan State rivalry. Makes sense.

There is so much good in that article that its hard to contain. Perhaps the greatest component though, is that while heading into the first BCS bowl in years, with arguably the greatest offensive threat in the country, the national press is basing an entire article about our defense--not offense. That simple fact bodes incredibly well for the future of this team.
