Exactly, as evidenced by Mark Donnal who everyone raved about in practice last year.

This is exactly why I love two things about Michigan...
People think Michigan fans overblow the "holier than thou" academic rhetoric, but I love that we don't stoop to the levels of other programs.

Here's a 30-second long iPhone ringtone of that song I just made that anyone can use: http://tbf.me/a/BPwlu5
Steps to put it on your phone: Download the .m4r file. Add it to your iTunes Library, which will automatically drop it in your ringtones section. Plug in your phone and sync it to iTunes, then it'll be in the list to assign as your ringtone!
The download link is only valid until December 12th, so get it while it's hot!

To clarify on my post above, Nike's shade of burnt orange for Texas athletic apparel is slightly different from the official school color, which is owned and patented by Pantone.
Same thing for Michigan, with their colors coming from Pantone as well...

Nike absolutely owns that shade of Maize. That's why when you see generic Michigan shirts at the M-Den, they're frequently random shades of yellow because they can't use the true Maize that Nike patented.
They also own Texas' "burnt orange" and other schools' colors that they've developed. Apparel companies that wish to use that burnt orange must pay Nike royalties to use it.

Tons of schools don't use private jets. I've sat next to MSU and Iowa basketball coaches on Delta flights all witihin in the past year. I don't see them struggling to build a program.

Brady is gone. Please call them Ohio State.

Cutcliffe is too old. Starting at Michigan at 60 is a tough road to hoe. The only exceptions I'd make for older guys would be for Miles or Briles...two much more proven coaching commodities than Cutcliffe.

Now four ADs in a row with no previous AD experience.
Now take into consideration that Goss began his tenure in 1997 and think of the slide we've been on ever since. Anyone notice a trend?

Huge call of the day. You win a box of Snickers Charge Bars.

This right here. He's a little volatile and can be a blowhard at times, but he definitely knows people and is still connected to Michigan.
Trust him with trepidation.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||I'm clearly in the minority||
I'm clearly in the minority here, but I actually appreciate Cowherd's schtick. He seems to genuinely believe what he says and quite often has actual facts to back up his opinions. I'm not even a sports bettor, but his knowledge on that subject seems second to none in the industry.

Today I learned our backup quarterback is a body of water.

Kind of a volatile personality, but is still well-connected from his time in Detroit. Was first to report the Hoke hire (way before anyone else).

Buddy of mine that is massively into CMU football said rumor yesterday morning was academic ineligibility and if that were the case, they may have to vacate their first 2 wins of this season.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||I literally laughed out loud||
I literally laughed out loud when I read this. The CMU fan base has been screaming for Enos to lose his job for 3 years now. Yes, they beat two terrible teams to start the year, but he is in NO WAY major conference coach material. He would be an absolute joke of a hire.

Allowing outsiders to join is not a new concept. My parents (football and basketball season ticket holders since '79) joined the AAUM in 1992 and neither of them ever attended UM.
The people running AAUM and Dave Brandon have nothing to do with this. It's been an option for quite a long time.

Thanks for the reminder. Coudn't remember if I paid mine or not. FYI, I called the ticket office and they were able to confirm it for me if anyone is in the same boat.

Though I hate to say it, I don't see MSU losing another game in B1G play. Once Payne's back, they'll be head and shoulders above their competition.
