Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

I would disagree. There are several factors to be considered other than just employment statistics. And I would argue that while employment may be very, very important, the way it is calculated for U.S. News purposes is flawed, and therefore it's importance to the rankings is appropriately discounted. What counts as "post-graduate" employment for a law student is a very manipulable concept, and Michigan MAY be at a disadvantage in how it keeps track of the statistic due to the scrutiny it receives as a public university.

I'm a little disappointed that the law school is tied for 10th with Duke. We have been consistently in the "Third Tier" of top law schools with UVa, UPenn, and Berkley, so this is a bit of a downgrade. Oh well.

It's probably more informed than most of the conjecture that will occur on this thread, though.
By the way, I was not the one that down-voted you.

My dog would be Jordan Morgan. He isn't very big, he has a lot of character, and he has been around forever (15 years old this year). On the other hand, he pees around the house when he doesn't get enough playing time, which is kind of the opposite of Morgan.

Argh! I was very happy to hate Payne for playing for MSU and being a general bully on the court, and now you have to throw THIS at me? I can't hate a guy who does this kind of work off the court. So frustrating...

Except for the Pistons. The Pistons have a shrine to Joe Dumars. Joe Dumars uber alles.
Internal Pistons conversation (I haz connections):
JoeD: "Can we draft Joe Dumars?"
Random Front Office Person: "Sir, you are Joe Dumars. No, we cannot draft you."
JoeD: "Then can we draft a guy who plays like me?"
RFOP: "That's what we are trying to do."
JoeD: "Good. But since we can't draft Joe Dumars, make sure that whoever we draft doesn't overshadow Joe Dumars."
RFOP: "Well, there's this kid who plays for Michigan who has a great vision, can shoot, can pass..."
JoeD: "Do they like him at Michigan?"
RFOP: "Yes. They love him. Drafting him would definitely boost attenda-"
JoeD: "Skip him. We must not overshadow Joe Dumars."

I think you could make a solid argument for Jordan Morgan. As was said in the JMo appreciation thread, he's a guy who wasn't supposed to get an offer, and yet has played a key role in Michigan basketball's return to prominence. Novak left before the program really hit its stride, and Burke grew what was already a growing wave to ridiculous levels. However, Morgan embodies a bit of each. He helped to start the wave, and is now making contributions WAY above his recruiting profile.
|1 week 1 day ago||What are you basing that||
What are you basing that assumption on? And do you have any legal background? Because "canned language" can be a scary proposition if a multi-billion dollar organization is the one that is producing the "canned language." I am taking Employment Law right now and, while most contracts are not on par with what Suh will be getting, I have no doubt that there is legalese and complicated legal precedent associated with NFL contracts that could spell the difference between a great contract and an awful contract for Suh.
For instance (and this won't be relevant to Suh's deal), did you know that a contract providing for "employment for life" is equivalent to "I can fire you at any time without repercussion"?
|1 week 1 day ago||As a law student who has||
As a law student who has taken a basic Contracts course, this seems like a terrible idea. NFL contracts are not just a matter of "I will pay you X amount for Y years." The legal field is a mess of jargon, disclaimers, and words that may or may not mean what you think they mean. Unless Suh has been studying NFL contracts since he made it to the NFL, this probably won't work out well. There is a reason that agents get a significant slice of the pie when contracts are signed -- their expertise is very valuable and can spell the difference between a fair contract and one that is "fair" according to an NFL organization's team of lawyers.

If Nebraska caught Michigan in the B1G standings, we would have much bigger things to worry about than poorer tourney seeding.

I have this problem where my upstairs neighbors get the game action before I do, so they always cheer about a second before I see what happens.
With that shot, it was still amazing even knowing the outcome.

I was about to blast you for that comment, but then I looked at his statistics. He seems to have done much less this year than I remembered. Very much a situational guy apparently.
I still think it's dumb to say he doesn't do anything for us, but I'm inclined to agree with you after doing a basic Google search.

There are a lot of dumbass Eagles fans. I will not defend said fans.
Brandon Graham had done very little for the team since being drafted in 2010 under the old regime. However, Chip Kelly seems to have sparked a resurgence by turning him into a pass-rushing LB.
Anybody who thinks Graham brings nothing either doesn't watch the team or is a dumbass.

As an Eagles fan, I am sad about this. Avant was our go-to, sure-handed WR on 3rd downs. During one season, I believe the majority of his catches were for 1st downs.
Good luck to him where ever he goes.
Also, he helped me salvage my #81 Terrell Owens jersey. Simply take the name off the back and it's an Avant jersey!

Congratulations! I remember when I logged into the Michigan Law accepted student page for the first time (it's the way law students find out their decision before they receive the package)....I screamed and did a lap around my house.
There are few better feelings.

I thought this was going to be about him going to the Lions if Caldwell doesn't work out. Either way, Harbaugh isn't coming back to Michigan in a coaching capacity any time soon.

Dakich's rankings are a joke. He continually emphasizes that they are based on who is doing well RIGHT AT THAT MOMENT. Therefore, because we had lost 2 of the last 3 and Nebraska had won 5 straight - notwithstanding the fact that 4 of those came against the B1G's dredges - the rankings make sense based on HIS CRITERIA.
I actually don't think Dakich is trollung is that bad now that his son is on the team. I just think his rankings are based on a criteria that is inherently useless.

I think Fair clearly got hosed based on what the new rules are this year. Cook was shifting into position when Fair was going into the air. He may have been ALMOST set, but that isn't the rule anymore.

As a JHU alum, if Hopkins didn't destroy Michigan, I'd be shocked and upset. Michigan will have a good lacrosse team one day, but Hopkins is expected to dominate a team that's so new to the scene.
