So you interview Rick Bay and Gordon Gee for this article and suggest that the next AD essentially can't be the present interim AD because he has no experience as a big time collegiate AD...So my contention is that if our record was 9-2, this article would never have seen the light of day. In addition, I wouldn't have had to read quotes from an ex-OSU AD and an ex-OSU president less than 24 hours before a Michigan-OSU game. I remember in the 70's and 80's how people hated Don Canham for his transformation of the Michigan brand. In the end, Michigan won football games and that was all that mattered. Michigan needs a new football coach. That's the bottom line

wrong. Successful CEOs are certainly self-confident but they aren't stupid. Successful CEOs surround themselves with the right people. Successful CEOs don't operate on themselves. You need to give it a break

think about things more objectively. Jim Hackett became CEO of a huge company that was tanking. He was 39 years old at the time. He turned the company around and took it through an incredibly difficult time. He stood up to ridicule, second guessing and random vitriole. He cared about his employees. He convinced Steve Jobs to become his customer. Jim Hackett has lots of experience. He'd be a great AD

I played for this great football coach at Michigan, Bo Schembechler. What I got from him was this drive to compete. If a C.E.O. doesn’t want to win, then you don’t want them in the job. You just can’t have a temperament that says average is O.K. You have to be really driven, and you can be driven in quiet ways. You don’t have to be screaming and yelling. You just want to win really badly, but you don’t want to win at any cost.
Schembechler told a famous story about his father taking this exam to be a fireman. He loses to a guy who cheated and he says to his father, “Why didn’t you tell them?” And he says, “It wasn’t my job to tell them.” Bo then asks, “Why didn’t you cheat?” And he says, “Who wants to win by cheating?” And it shaped his ethos as a coach.
Whenever I get a chance to talk to somebody who’s young about integrity, I tell them you almost have to practice for those moments when your integrity might be tested. To say it another way, people tend to double down and do bad things under the most extreme pressure.
Works for me

I have no problem with this brochure or any brochure that aims to keep the public healthier. What if this was a brochure for prostate cancer or breast cancer? And is depression any different, as a disease entity, than prostate or breast cancer? Ten yerars ago we didn't talk about depression. Now because of the 'Michigan Difference' we're talking about a significant healthcare issue. You might find it interesting that 40,000 people will take their lives this year inthe US...

in any successful boycott is moral outrage. At this point, I can't say I've reached moral outrage. I've reached differing types of outrage but can I say I'm outraged morally? No, not yet. And with this group of student athletes it's unlikely that my outrage will attain that status.

are able to look at someone, accurately gauge their strengths and weaknesses (we all have both) and put them in situations where their strengths are emphasized and capitalized on. Devon Gardner deserves our support not condemnation. Don't tell me about reading defenses and mechanics and all that stuff that very few of us have any real understanding of. You want to give up? Go root for sparty

Read the national press re this past weekend, etc...Michigan is getting pummeled. We're an afterthought. We're getting compared to the likes of Notre Dame which absolutely scares the shit out of me. The national media's talking about Michigan State...not Michigan and that's a problem

Is a broad category somewhat like 'cancer' is a broad category. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death from malignancy and I would say that 28,000 is a lot. At the same time, morbidities from the unnecessary diagnosis and treatment of this disease is significant
|33 weeks 1 hour ago||Really interesting thread||
But, what I now understand is that most of you males writing things about prostate cancer might step back because, based on what I've read, most of you are misinformed. To set the record straight-lots of 80 year olds die a horrible, painful death from prostate cancer. 28,000 men will die from prostate cancer in 2014. Screening for prostate cancer in the US, because of our fee-for-service system, is done haphazardly and incorrectly most of the time. If you're over the age of 40 you should know your PSA and your urologist. And finally, Donald Sterling has been a complete bastard, racist for a lot longer than he's owned the Clippers and the NBA has known this. So when the sponsors started to bail the NBA acted...money talks.

with his 'competitive fairness' quote it made me think about 1984. He would have been a great Party member.

Hoke et al better be saying to this kid...you can come here and compete and try to win a position but I like what we have. Meyer et al is saying essentially friend or foe go with the dough. Is this one kid going to make that much of a difference long term? No. The head coach who encourages a certain culture makes the difference. Going after this kid has more downside than upside. Have fun in Columbus.
