to play football, not to play trumpet

|9 hours 31 min ago||Outside Michigan||
It's already common outside of Michigan for rural divided and 2 lane highways to be 60 or 65. 70 seems a little high to me given Michigan really doesn't do many rural divided highways.

The very first phrase is what I find to be key. If you have a wife, like I do, who has already thought most of tasks she asks of me through, then just do what she says.
Most men, myself included, simply don't care about 95% of the stuff your wife does. Just do what she asks, then if you think it's stupid later, tell her then.
I generally find I have to reign in my wife on doing too much, by doing obvious tasks that need done before she asks.
A good wife is your best asset for being successful.
Edit: I guess I should say "spouse" rather than "wife", given I know a couple or two that do this the opposite of "normal". And are very successful at it.
|3 days 9 hours ago||Purdue/Indiana||
I've often wondered what it would take to combine Indiana and Purdue into one University, and therefore one football team. I mean, IUPUI exists already, can't they just combine the two systems from top to bottom?
Indiana having 3 good major college football teams, with their population, may have made sense in 1930, but in 2016 it's un-possible.
|3 days 10 hours ago||SMU||
In some cases, I wouldn't be too surprised if coaches try to crack down on the bagmen, and simply can't.
There simply aren't any SMU type systems out there where everything is nicely organized and written out.

Look around some. The station (Caseys) right up the street is 60 cents more for Premium but the QT near work is about 30 cents. I just fill up at work when I think about it.

Oh goody, two threads disparaging State on the board at one time.
Nah, we don't have a complex at all.
|1 week 3 days ago||I'll bite||
No one cares how much college costs, because they aren't paying for it (yet).
When there is no cost advantage, an organization is not incentivized to cut costs. If you want to lower student loan debt, add some qualifcations to loans, such as JUCO only for the first two years.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||White||
Well, I'm assuming it's us old white folk who had no idea what it meant. Kudos for understanding the target audience.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Harbaugh||
I think it would behoove them to wait until the 3rd as well.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Communication||
Who says it hasn't been communicated until this last week?
I find it much more likely Swenson simply ignored the broad hints that he needed to find another school for the last several months than we pulled a scholly at the last minute.
It's not like Michigan/Harbaugh doesn't have a trend of letting these guys know they need to look around. Perhaps Swenson just chose to ignore those hints, in hopes he would still end up at his dream school.
Swenson would hardly be the first 17 year old to ignore advice.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Transfer||
I think its Backup Goalie/Quarterback syndrome. Some people will always believe what we don't have is better than what we do have.
Him transferring in is good for competition, but it's just that, certainly no guarantee he is a starter. If it's a choice between a Freshman recruit and him though, I'd take the recruit.
Of course, I'm not on Harbaugh's staff, so my opinion is irrelevant.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||2nd Half||
Although I agree with your twice made statement, that isn't the entire reason. The offense was completely different under Cooter. Very refreshing to watch them take advantage of mis-matches and see good play design with him running the show. I'd like to see what he can do with an off-season to prepare.
I don't see any reason not to give the coaches another year. It looks like they are headed in the right direction, and there aren't better options right now anyway.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Yep||
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Boomers||
Still trying to figure out if the Millenials are just as bad, or if they are just like every generation at 20. Naive, opinionated and think their generation will solve all the worlds problems, real or imagined.
I'm hoping it's just that every time a Millenial twits he took a shit, it makes the news.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Southern living||
If you haven't at least lived in the South, i don't think you can appreciate the difference in how people think.
In the North/West, there is more of a pandering racism; ie, well, they are black, so no way can they make it on their own, give the guy a shot.
In the South it's much more; I prefer that white guy over the black guy, but man the black dude can play ball/lawyer/paint better, so he's fine by me kind of thing.
I think it's up to you on which you prefer.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Skeptic||
I fail to understand the current need for everyone to be on one side of any issue, or be 'downvoted'. Healthy debate, on everything, is important for both sides of an issue.
Half the stories posted today don't come out without your skepticism.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Conversely||
Well, his defensive stats might also be benefiting from the"no offense" issue too. When you know the offense can't score, you tend to play a much slower, conservative gameplan.
Think of how many times we got to halftime, and mailed it in on offense after that.

Looks to be doing fine to me.

This is what I think most people are missing. Rutgers may only put 40k in the seats, but Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State could add 50k a game. There are a whole lot

He has a point, this board has been unreadable for a week and a half.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Supply and demand||
If there is less money available to borrow, or it's harder to come by, there is less money to pay, so colleges will not be able to keep raising rates with no consequences. Right now there is no incentive to control costs. Which imhe is precisely the reason college costs so much.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Young people||
It has to be young people, scarred by 3 whole losses in a row, who want Sparty to win. Ohio St is our real rival, not little brother. I hope they whoop you guys 50-0.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||Agree.||
Not only do I agree, I'd take it one step further. RR's offense was one concept utilized many different ways. But still only one dimension. If you were playing Michigan you watched the tape and one week could do a fair job defending what was the offense.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||True||
Although a Notre Dame or Penn St or Michigan game in Jersey would be money. I wouldn't mind Rutgers as a pair with ND. By themselves it's a non-starter.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||Don't think so||
First dozen or so plays were shotgun. It was very mixed after that point from what I remember. I think that mix will work once Borges works out the kinks

as a walmart wolverine I assure you, you are wrong. we love the tradition as much as the get-of-my-lawn alumni
|4 years 23 weeks ago||independence||
Ah, but if they ended up independent TX could probably show their home games on TLN. All TX would make sure their cable providers carried TLN then.

Couldn't have said it any better.
