Brain - damn.

I noticed that too, but there was an article up on Rivals that pretty much said a lot of the QBs in attendance were more interested in scoring accuracy points and winning awards than actually throwing the football how they will in a game setting. It sounds like Peters was slinging the ball around fairly well. It would have been nice to see him come away with an award or two, but I am encouraged when hearing about his arm strength and confidence.
Magnus - I'm not sure if anyone has asked you this yet, but do you have any comparison to any former QBs and Peters? Thanks in advance!

Not a big hockey guy, but I'm pretty sure they're called the Phoneix Coyotes, not the Arizona Coyotes.
As far as the topic, being a youngster in northern Michigan, I always sort of wished the pro teams in Michigan were "Michigan" teams just so that I would be included. But as I grew up, despite not being from the Detroit area, I now have a sense of pride in the city of Detroit and the teams that call the city home. Let's go wings and tigers tonight!

I was referring to last season coming into this season, prior to this injury. I don't think anyone was expecting him to get back to 50+ saves this season and to throw 98mph, but there was a chance he could come back and be a solid contributor out of the pen.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||I thought I read he threw a||
I thought I read he threw a 15 pitch bullpen session yesterday and felt great afterwards. I'm not positive, but I believe I saw it on the Twitter from a Tigers rep. Here's to hoping he'll be back in Detroit sooner rather than later.

I love the bro in the white hat motioning Henderson to come into the stands.

While I agree with your list, I would put fan involvement/excitement/supprt somewhere on that list as well. A spring game can be a very good gague of fan support, especially to a recruit that may be visiting campus for the first time.

While it may not be a popular choice around here and is obviously not as highly ranked as Ross or some of the other top tier MBA programs that have been mentioned, I am about to graduate from the MSU MBA Program (Broad) in May and have had nothing but great experiences over my two years in the program.
I graduated from UofM with a degree in Sport Management in 2011 and worked in a BigTen 10 athletic department for two years before I decided I wanted change things up in my career. I scored a 680 on the GMAT and applied to Ross, Iowa, Minnesota, and MSU. I was accepted by all except Ross which was a bummer at the time. I am a native Michigander so the tuition at MSU was pretty manageable and if you apply for a GA (which I did), you're almost guaranteed to receive one.
While Broad isn't as highly ranked as Ross or other top tier programs, it is one of the fastest rising programs in the US, actually. It is considered by most to be a top 3 supply chain management program (which I studied) while some consider it to be tops in the country. The program is currently ranked somewhere in the mid to lower 30s in the country but there is a huge push to make it a top 20 program within the coming years.
I was fortunate to get an internship with a major computer company in Austin, TX this past summer and have spun that into a full time consulting position with one of the Big 4 that will start this summer. Some of my classmates will be working for major companies including Johnson&Johnson, Mars, Ford, McKinsey, and Intel. So, while the program is not as highly ranked as others, there is definitely still the opportunity to work for a major company upon graduation.
Finally, while I am a wolverine until I die and get poked fun of on a daily basis, no one in the program rags on me too hard for wearing my Michigan backpack on campus or being on MGoBlog most of the day. I have about 6 or 7 UofM alums in the program with me so we tend to stick together at sporting events. The last thing I will tell you about the program is that it is very small compared to others. I will graduate in a class of 69 in May which is extremely small compared to the programs with 300-500+. I enjoyed the small size of our program because I was able to make much strongerconnections and relationships with my classmates and while my network may not be as large, it is extremely strong.
Good luck with your decision! I hope you are able to get into Ross, but if you can't just know that there are other great programs out there.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||This is Awesome||
First of all, thank you so much for sharing this story. I found myself getting chills while reading. I really appreciate you taking the time to give us who haven't had the opportunity to go through the recruiting process an inside view. Karan sounds like a fantasic young man and I can't wait to see him run out of the tunnel for the first time this fall. Go Blue!

I'm sure this has been asked elsewhere, but I haven't come across it. Is there any way Hackett becomes the full time AD?
|40 weeks 1 day ago||The fact that you put a (?)||
The fact that you put a (?) next to "good" in the title makes me think we can probably do better than Addazio since being a good coach is hopefully a requirement for the next head coach.
|40 weeks 6 days ago||That's the point of this||
That's the point of this entire thread - the clock is not supposed to continue to run after an offensive penalty. If that were the case, an offensive team could take an infinite number of delay of game penalties and run the clock out completely no matter how much time is on the clock. And that doesn't justify taking cheap shots at unsuspecting players.
My high school coach won a few state championships himself (Josh Sellers if you feel like looking him up) and I happened to be on a pair of those teams. And he won his championships without being an asshole, or I guess you would say he won them by being a softy.

And giving the guy across from you a cheap shot while taking a five yard penalty help you win the game how, exactly?

Sweet baby Jesus, look at the hole the OL opens for Perry at the 2:30 mark of that video. Dear 2014 offensive line, please be able to create something remotely close to this.

Do you copy and paste this comment on every Hello Post or do you take the time to rewrite it? Just curious.
