I think the idea is that people pay taxes that go to funding these schools, so they should get a say in how the schools operate. Though over the past few years, the state funding towards higher ed has decreased...
The next question to ask is why aren't the Regents at the other state schools voted on? Instead, they are appointed by the Governor. I can tell you as an employee of one of those schools, I would much rather the people vote. Think about Eastern's Regents and their push for increasing spending on things like the football program over academics, given the history of the football program. Would you want those guys pulling weight on decisions at Michigan?

It's great to see this site get some well deserved recognition.
I was a little, I don't know, saddened? to see Schlissel say he feels like a Michigan Man. Can we please stop using that term! Michigan Man is a four letter word.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah- it's a sign of||
Yeah- it's a sign of incredible committment that you are able to continue to write compelling material at this point, Brian. Seriously, thanks.
I've never really felt sick before when it came to sports. Angry, sad, disengaged, sure. But reading this, I felt sick. It's Rutgers, and my gut thinks that Michigan is going to loose. Oh man...

Points- I don't have many, but I wanted to make sure folks on here saw this:
Well timed with the new #Eating campaign that's been given it's own thread below.

My first thought was that at least I'll have time to become a hit man before this series happens.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah- I sort of figured with||
Yeah- I sort of figured with the army of people working in the AD, you could easily have a few people keep an eye on things for a few hours per week. I guess it's not worth the hastle to the department, but it's one of those smallish things that's made the program in general less special over the years. At least to me.
|34 weeks 2 days ago||The only "event" that I care||
The only "event" that I care about is the AD unlocking the stadium so you could go run the stairs or just go inside with out forking over the kid's college fund like you could in the past. Even if it's only open for an hour or two a day. Am I the only person that still shakes my fist at the air when they think about this?

A grey field. Makes me proud to be on faculty at EMU. I mean, what else could you do with that 500k?
|48 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed. It isn't the wins||
Agreed. It isn't the wins and losses or the quality of the team, but it is the product. Games are much longer than they used to be, the music is loud and played often enough that it isn't easy to actually have a conversation in between plays, and the cost of tickets and food/water continues to increase. At home, I have a bathroom, a fridge, all the free water I want, a comfortable seat and plenty of room to jump up and down or run around in circles when the game is exciting. It gets harder and harder to get up to go to games every year- and it really sucks that that's the case.

but this is fantastic. Thank you Heiko. Thank you mgoblog.

My thoughts exactly. It's amazing how much less I can stomach in life now that instead of picturing myself enduring some sort of pain or tramua, I'm replaced by one of my sons in the mental pictures that come with these sorts of events. No one prepared me for that before I had kids. The worst thing that I can imagine in life is a life without them.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||kids...||
Yeah- I relalized a few weeks ago that had we not decided to have kids, I could have taken the 4 years worth of daycare money and bought that Porsche 911 that I've always wanted. Oh well, at least I was able to upgrade from that 1986 VW Cabriolet a couple years ago anyway.

Is it possible that a current recruit would know the connection between this quote and the Fab 5? That's the first thing I thought of when I read the post, which made me think he was choosing Michigan, naturally.

I'm sorry if this is inappropriate, but are you "the Naked Man"? I just happened to catch this episode tonight.

I know its sort of silly that we're playing them again, but I was glad they came to town last year. I'm a Bradley alum, so when they came to Ann Arbor, the AD and president of the university came too and threw a pre-game party at Zingerman's Events. I showed up in Michigan gear of course.

Got my Ph. D. in Space Physics. Went to every game as a grad student. If you majored in physics, you should be smart enough to get your crap done and enjoy the thing you spent your hard earned money on.

|2 years 30 weeks ago||I'd risk it||
but be careful. For my first born, my wife and I went to the hospital 3 hours before my Son popped out. We (she) thought labor was going to be worse than it was, I guess, so she ended up doing most of the laboring at home, not really knowing it was real labor. When she decided it was time to go in, we both thought that there was a good chance they were going to send us home.
With all the stories of 20 hours in the hospital, warm baths, and halking up and down the hallway, just know that it doesn't necessarily go that way. Still, I think that you would be safe given that the due date is 3 weeks away.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||I always struggle with how||
I always struggle with how much to tip these guys as well, not to mention Olive Garden/ any take out place people. I guess my thought process always goes, "ok, what's my first instinct", which is usually like $2 for a pizza guy, and then "well, if I give this person and extra $1, its probably going to make more of a difference to them than it is to me." So I always just go with an extra buck or so.

Somehow, I haven't looked out my office window in Strong Hall this afternoon. It's good to be reminded that no matter how frustrated I get at my computer, there is always beer... I mean snow!
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Old Town||
I'm worthless as I haven't been to the Old Town in at least 6 months, but don't they also have Shorts Humalupalicious on tap? I'm surprised no one has mentioned this here. I go for a Huma over Hopslam or Two Hearted, though all three are excellent.

I give an extra nod to Wolverine. They're typically known for their lagers though, as opposed to IPAs, though the Insolent Mink isn't bad. Also you can't go wrong with the Gulo Gulo when they have it.
