I think you are wrong on this. Unless something has changed, Rackham is South. The old Chem bldg is North.

Schiano = Outback Steakhouse - a step above...
Adazio = Steak and Shake
Les = McCormick and Schmick - can also have seafood, every time can see something new
Stoops = Morton's - Classic. Consistent. (see also The Palm)
Mullen = Sullivan's - was pretty good most recently, but prior meals just above average
Harbaugh = no franchise can compare. Gibson's in Chicago or Sparks in NYC. Don't bother going without a reservation. Even Abe Froman, the sausage king of Chicago, won't get a table at Gibson's without a reservation

There has been so much confusion on this topic. You should consider taking your last two posts and putting them up as a new thread. I think people will appreciate it. (Not being sarcastic - it really is a helpful summary.

Thanks for everything you do. I have had concerns about other teams as you mention above - particularly the Bears. I don't know what his relationship is with the McCaskeys.
Based on reports we are seeing, there may be a number of possible "full-control" offers with various teams. This possibility is not completely new though - at any point, Harbaugh and his agents would have known that this possibility existed or would eventually come up. So, over the past 1-2 weeks, these possibilities come to light, and yet Hackett has not even flinched once thus far. Not once. The fact that Hackett has not moved is the only thing that is actually clear in this process. Am I crazy to think that this, in itself, suggests that this is a fait accompli?

Ask Bagheera to check with his sister's friend's hairstylist's step-aunt who works in the Raiders dining hall. She has broken several hot takes lately. I hope that the Raiders do not find out that I have outed her in this blog.

I feel like a 45-year-old graduate who is constantly monitoring his phone to find out if things will ever be like they were in his best years.
|1 week 1 hour ago||Funny, he had just graduated||
Funny, he had just graduated when I was in college. He used to come back every now and then to visit. He had just started in the NFL at that time. I remember at one point he came to fraternity party across the street (not my house but the one kitty corner from us). He was talking to a girl who was a Theta who was widely considered, at the time, to be the absolute hottest girl at Michigan by those in the Greek system. He went up to her and tried to give her his best rap. She had no idea who he was. He ended up telling her exactly who he was, but this did not help. Even pulled the old, "do you know when I am?" She still did not know who he was. It was a funny situation because he failed just like the rest of us did. Still wonder what happened to her. She really was hot.

What do you think of Aardberg. To me it is really really too peaty - tastes like drinking a fireplace. I'm trying to finish it. Will not chuck good alcohol.

Sorry about that - here's my point: the 49ers certainly have a strategy but I cannot figure out what it could be.
- They don't know what is on his mind but they know he hates them and that Michigan seems to be standing on and holding course silently as if they at least know something.
- If they talk to Michigan now, they stand to gain something in return.
- If they wait until season end thinking that they can negotiate an NFL trade, they risk getting nothing because Harbaugh can decline and still have his option to go to Michigan without any form of compensation to the 49ers.
Am I completely missing something here? The only think that I can think of is that they are going to wait until the Seattle game is over to make a move. To wait any longer is not in their favor unless they are willing to bet several million that is staying pro no matter what.

|1 week 2 days ago||For the life of me I can't||
For the life of me I can't understand what the 49'er's tactic is right now. They can't talk to another NFL team right now. They can wait until the season's over and try to talk to an NFL team, but there is a risk that he will veto. They don't know what he's thinking. They can talk to Michigan now and negotiate to get something in return. If they don't, they will risk getting nothing in return because Harbaugh will have the upper hand, thereby forcing them to fire him. It makes no sense unless they really think that he will for sure accept a trade. Given his disdain for them, I am sure they know less than us about what's on his mind. If I were them, not knowing where he stands, but knowing he hates them, I would negotiate now and get something.

Clearly NO university, including the University of Michigan would "offer" a position without understanding FIRST whether the candidate had any interest. Cutcliffe is a very reasonable candidate based on the attributes we seek, therefore, I am not surprised that we would reach out to determine if interest exists.
However, I could have told you based on being a part of the University community here at Duke that he would not be interested in any job. It has nothing to do with Michigan - he and his family are very entreanched in the University and community here. He is a great guy by all accounts from everyone here, and I highly doubt that he would personally have wanted misinformation like this to be reported at someone's (our) expense. Most people here expect him to stay here and eventually retire here. Time will tell if we're wrong on that. We (Michigan) got caught on the short end of a reporter's effort to be relevant in this media opportunity.
