I chose Michigan over Columbia for undergraduate and am very happy with my choice. My best friend chose Columbia over Michigan (and Stanford) and he is very happy with his choice. I imagine that if either of us had gotten into Harvard we'd have gone there.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Been done before||
Michigan has recruited back-to-back 5 star RB recruits before. They signed Ricky Powers who along with Robert Smith were considered the 2 best RBs their senior year and followed that up the next season with Tyrone Wheatley.
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||Others||
There were a few D1 players that had trouble with UofD academics: D. Gardner, D. Sims (MSU), and even Braylon was at the Academy.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Many others, too||
So did D. Gardner, D. Sims (MSU), and Braylon went to the Academy.

A friend of mine donated one of his kidneys to a person that he never met bin essence he reasoned that he had two while somebody needed one so why not donate it and let the hospital find a match. It may have been the most selfless act that I've seen someone perform outside of an emergency situation.

Thanks for the great season. The team's class made it very easy to root for them.

I'm in Cusco, Peru, and ESPN is carrying the feed live. Try that, maybe.

Anyone know of a bar in Bangkok that will show the game?

Rice doesn't have Jesuits.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||"Comment" not "coment" Oops.||
|1 year 13 weeks ago||True.||
I graduated from U of D High in the mid 80s and we always used these types of cheers against CC and Rice, etc. We were terrible in sports but couldn't be beat in the classroom. We never used the same cheers agaist the Detroit public schools when we played them.
But just because we used it in this context does not mean that others do also. I don't know enough about the De La Salle situation to coment.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Get rid of Terry||
That guy is not a good human being and a constant distraction to the team. I think that England is a better team with him off the pitch.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Scholarship numbers||
I count 15 scholarships available for next year. I doubt that we will get to 20-22 as that will mean 5-7 early departures. That seems a bit high and does not bode well for being "all in for Michigan." And yes, I know that is a Rich Rod slogan.

Very well put. I could not have put it better.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Agree||
I sure hope that none of us is judged by our single worst incident in life.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||posted from iPhone||
I don't think that "former" means what you think it means.

|1 year 26 weeks ago||Is that the driving force behind whether to offer scholarships?||
But why can't you say the same thing about students who are on academic scholarships or those on scholarships because of unique talents (like music)? Or to make the point even more emphatic, how are need-based students different from non-revenue athletes. Both take money away from the University with no direct financial benefit to the school.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||But then do you compensate||
But then do you compensate Robinson more than Mealor because Denard shoulders more of a burden. And do we then pull scholarships from non-performers because they are not shouldering any burden? I think that your logic would dicate yes, but I cannot agree with that action.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||Could you really do this?||
If Michigan could unilaterally do away with Title IX, could you tell a star, female softball player or tennis player etc. that while we appreciate that you have devoted innumerable hours to your sport and are at the top of your game, we will not offer you a scholarship because we are devoting our resources to male sports that generate revenue? I couldn't do it.
But I would have no problem telling a WNBA player that she will earn significantly less money than an NBA player because the market does not support equal salaries. The difference being that one is in the context of school while the other is in the context of a profession. Even at Michigan or UCLA or Stanford, very few of the athletes will become professionals. We are a school with a different mission than a business and our paradigm should reflect that difference.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Dorsey||
Not true. Dorsey met eligibility requirements. RichRod really wanted him. The Admissions Department denied Dorsey admissions.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||I agree with AAB. And while||
I agree with AAB. And while I agree with Brian's suggestion concerning retaining eligibility, his suggestion concerning agents in college is just not feasible on many fronts. The most obvious to me is:
"The league in question must project the player as a draftable prospect."
How in the world is the NFL going to project whether a high school senior is draftable? The NFL has enough of a hard time projecting college players for the draft. Other than economics, I see no worse science than that.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Not my experience||
He sat directly behind me at the Ohio football game and he could not have been more nice. He offered to take pictures of the group that I was with. He was rooting on the Wolverines. Very good guy.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Don't agree||
I chose Michigan over Columbia precisely because I wanted a college town atmosphere. My best friend made the opposite decision (plus Columbia had a great fencing team). We were both right.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||I count 14 linebackers. I'd||
I count 14 linebackers. I'd add Paskorz as a linebacker. I'd remove Evans as a medical 6th year is unlikely. I'd also put Ojemudia, and Clark on the DL.

Do you mean Tom?

Sorry. Two people beat me to the punch.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||No.||
Brian said "next time we visit ...." therefore everyone on the line will be one year older than you indicate.
