not really an interim's job.

Power 5 autonomy is designed to make things like this happen. The bigger issue is Title IX.

Yesterday, but a LOI isn't required to join a team. If Johnson can get whatever he needs to do done by August he can head to AA.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||A Big Ten with ND and ND has||
A Big Ten with ND and ND has three bids this year to the NCHC's 3. And it's not like Minnesota is going to stay down. It's not like Wisconsin is going to stay down. MSU I don't know any more, but that is also one of the top programs in the history of college hockey. And PSU is pretty legit already.
The formation of the Big Ten came at an unfortunate time but it's correlation, not causation. Going forward the Big Ten is going to be very good. With NoDak, ridiculous. And the Big Ten comes with cachet--and TV exposure--the NCHC cannot match.

That Shuart goal is not something you expect from a fourth line, either the pass or the finish.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||That isn't really an accurate||
That isn't really an accurate characterization of Michigan's situation. 54% of the overall budget is the hospital, athletic department, Daily, and housing that are run as self-sufficient entitites. Another 16% comes from grants, gifts, and endowment payouts, and only a small fraction of that is part of the day to day education experience.
The general fund is more or less the whole pie when it comes to things the state should actually be involved in supporting.

The bet here is that Smith gets most of them with some Shallman.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||I have heard that is not part||
I have heard that is not part of the plan and has never actually been part of it. That could change; right now I would expect him at TE.

we used the thesis statement of that piece in our wedding. srs.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||FWIW, Broom of the System was||
FWIW, Broom of the System was a lot tougher for me than IJ. As always, I suggest starting with DFW's nonfiction, which is universally outstanding and (with the exception of a couple of literary navel-gazers) should give you an indication of whether this guy is for you or not.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||I don't know how to answer||
I don't know how to answer this question since I read the thing in about four days. The plot is good but don't expect a neat bow at the end. I think the book is actually supposed to be circular.
The Ulysses comparison is a decent one but DFW is a much funnier and more accessible writer than Joyce at his most obfuscatory. Not exactly Terry Pratchett but amongst highbrow authors I think he's amongst the easiest to get a grip on.

That's just an excuse to cover his ass for a flip less than a week before Signing Day. Don't be so naive.

unless Henry doesn't know who his dad is that's him.

TBH this is too weird to be untrue
EDIT: the guy's story. Internet rando could be totally wrong about Fuller, of course.

have heard this is true. Baraka type situation.

Not really, though I was told that Swenson's dad was pretty combustible.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||When someone is committed to||
When someone is committed to Michigan and thinks their destination otherwise might be Temple there is a powerful motivation to be intentionally dense. Michigan should prevent someone from fooling themselves by being explicit.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||not to go all Dave Brandon||
not to go all Dave Brandon here but the things I say happened in the column are things that I have been discussing with guys like Webb and Lorenz for months privately.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Dytarious Johnson will not||
Dytarious Johnson will not sign because of academics. He's it other than guys like Johnson and Elliott.

it's a text Sullivan received.

I think this is a very likely scenario.

We don't have a problem with MLive, just the Freep.
I'm not going to update; don't think it says much of anything we don't already know. TBH the idea that there was "no explanation given" doesn't ring true to me. You gotta know something of what's up, his departure has been rumored for a while.
|15 weeks 2 hours ago||I dunno, watch him pull and||
I dunno, watch him pull and pass set on that film... I think he's a guy who got rated high early and hasn't been dropped sufficiently most places. (247 has him 3* #55 OT.) That Michigan decided to drop him without any particularly likely big-time recruits on the hook at a spot they need to fill tells you all you need to know.

The thing is, I have heard that Swenson has been on the fence for a while now. So either
1. the coaching staff knew it and didn't tell him
I'm guessing #2 is the most likely occurrence. Harding was kind of the same way.

He will not be eligible. There is another, though...

I intend to do this going forward for a more useful sample size.
