Twitter lied to me. He's on right now.

I'll be on the Huge Show at 5:50 today, discussing UM football.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||Meet Schlissel in Detroit||
FYI, the Alumni Association is hosting a "Meet Mark Schlissel" event at the Westin Book Cadillac Detroit this Thursday from 5:30-7:00. Now perhaps this will get cancelled given the shitstorm that's taking place, but if it's on as scheduled, it's a forum to voice your opinion directly to the President.

|22 weeks 3 days ago||Great point||
This is what I can't wrap my head around. Sounds like his concussion protocol is "The player must self report a concussion, otherwise we're keeping him in. Football is about toughness."
Props to Nick Baumgardner for asking that question, but needless to say, that was a pathetic response from Hoke.

I think the bigger issue is that there is a big rift between Harbaugh and GM Trent Baalke. It's been widely reported by reporters close to the Niners and almost everyone speculates that Harbaugh won't be returning to Santa Clara next season as a lame duck coach.

I had a nightmare 2 nights ago that the Board of Regents fired Brandon and replaced him with GERG. I was so deep in sleep that I totally bought it for 25 minutes.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||I don't believe the business||
I don't believe the business school has ever been ranked in the top 5 by USNWR, or at least it hasn't been anytime recently. The number 1 ranking you are referring to was from the Wall St Journal, a ranking that is widely considered very flawed.

There are glitzy high rise apartments popping up all over the place. Talked to a few locals when I visited last month and most of them mentioned the rising cost of living is one of the biggest drawbacks.

|1 year 13 weeks ago||Not sure if Kiffin all over again||
I don't know if it's Kiffin all over again, but I agree that they could have done better. Re: Sumlin, I read somewhere over the weekend that USC's interest in him soured over time as they saw TAMU's abysmal defense.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||It's fair to point out that||
It's fair to point out that omission. I just think that after 5-years and recruiting pretty darn well (to his credit), his results on the field don't scream homerun hire.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Contrarian View Here||
I am surprised to read a lot of positive reactions to this hire on this board. I personally think USC could have had a homerun hire, and they missed a royal opportunity. Sarkisian is 34-29 (1-6 vs. Stanford/Oregon/UCLA) over 5 years. Does that make him a bad coach? No. But it doesn't inspire confidence that he can win championships at USC.
In the end, I think his experience at Washington shows he's a good coach, just not great. I really thought Pat Haden would look outside of the Pete Carroll circle and make a run for someone like James Franklin or Chris Petersen. This is similar to our own coaching search 3 years ago. Sark had enough allies in and around the AD, and that is largely the reason he got this job IMO.

Tim Beckman is #20 on that list. I think he deserves a Top 10 honor.

Nebraska's AD just issued a statement yesterday supporting him and saying he will be back.

To add to the replies below, you're also failing to account for the caliber of graduate programs at UM - particularly engineering and business, both of which have strong reputations around the world.

|2 years 51 weeks ago||Midwest Region Site||
This is great. I did notice, however, that this has New Orleans listed as the Midwest Sweet 16/Elite 8 site, but I'm pretty sure it's actually supposed to be St. Louis.
Speaking of which, a potential UNC-Kansas Elite 8 matchup gives Kansas a pretty significant home court advantage.

Thanks to Coach Hoke, analysts and experts everywhere are confused as to which Ohio we are really playing. Except Doug Gotleib, who is just an idiot.

sorry, had to.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Prof Thom's||
You're going to be in the minority on this. I haven't had their food before, so I can't speak to that, but calling it the "worst Michigan football viewing experience" and "one of the worst bars you can find in NYC" is going way overboard. The owners/management at Prof Thom's has been immensely supportive of UofM, and in particular, the Alumni Club of NY.

Did Pelini just kiss Fickell on the neck? Fickell pulled away immediately. That was really awkward...
