Is he any good??
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||Edit: I now have no idea!!||
NCAA Bylaw 15.02.4.3. This rule states that any financial aid except that which is specifically exempted is going to count as athletic aid and make the student a “counter” in terms of scholarships.
But this is the NCAA so nothing is that clear. I have to think that Michigan has had some very academically qualified players in the past that were always counted towards the 85.
EDIT: or this??
FINANCIAL AID -- COUNTABLE FINANCIAL AID -- TEAM LIMITS -- INSTITUTIONAL ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS

We get one.....two if the gods shine down on us.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Best I could do.......link to OSU players do a lot of drugs|
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I must be tired.....everything is funny this morning||
Read the article in the link and it says he was high on Oklahoma last month.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Gator Board.......very funny||
Just looking at the Gator board on 247. Most fans still want him. There are some posts on there apparently from his Twitter account where he throws OSU players under the bus and says they do a lot of drugs. I am not a Twitter guy and have no idea how to check the validity of a Twitter post. Just FYI.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||If even only a fraction of this is true, it's still too much.||
.We need to keep in mind that there a few issues at hand here. The first being the heinous crime of rape. The second beng the institutional cover-up of said rapes and the third being the institutions support and encouragement of what might have been a spirit team although I don't see that that's what was actually said. The coach seemingly goes "old boys club" and suggests that the football players get laid which I think goes without saying at any school.
I'll focus on the first two issues. I don't care if there was 52 incidents or not. If there was even a small fraction of 52 incidents, Baylor should pay a price and I hope that the victims open up a can of financial and hardship whoop ass on that shit hole institution. I have worked with and personally known victims of sexual assault/rape and no measure of financial compensation will heal the scars that might be left.
This isn't even about the football team anymore but I agree with what another poster said, I don't want this to become a rallying cry or struggle for redemption through sports so shut the fuckers down!!!
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Age and/or IQ||
Sometimes I think we should have to state our age and/or IQ before we post or our blood-alcohol level.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Good for Iowa||
The fact that somebody, anybody else is doing this is flattering. I hope that they have great success with this.......but less than us.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||What about the schools being proactive||
I've often wondered why a school like Michigan that seemingly has unlimited resources doesn't launch their own investigation. There are countless other schools with deep pockets that could contribute in this light, Is it because it doesn't happen as often as we suspect so why bother. Is it because the last thing we want is other schools taking a closer look at some or any of our practices. Just a thought.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Big loss||
That's crootin. It would be nice to see a 12th hour commit or flip to the good guys but I'm not feeling optimistic. Still a strong class.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Have the Bolivians been rehabilitated||
Red's (Shawshank Redemption) response: 1967 Parole Hearings Man: Ellis Boyd Redding, your files say you've served 40 years of a life sentence. Do you feel you've been rehabilitated?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Commitment Issues?||
I'm on my third marriage I have them too.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Yay||
He still has Collins to Michigan.....I knew we still had a chance....
|5 weeks 6 days ago||"the older guys"||
I wonder how many of us could keep up with the demands of their jobs and the amount of travel they do. I'll take the slightlty slower pace combined with the wisdom. The old bull and the young bull.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Absolutely not||
Taking over a college program is a 4 year cycle. We're fortunate to have had the success we've had. Harbaugh is safe.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Depends on Taste||
Bo Schembechler wines are a novelty, nice souvenir but not a great drinking wine. The Charles Wodson wines are actually pretty good but pricey. The CW Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc are both good. I haven't tried the Cab Franc....at $600 a bottle. If you get a chance take her to a Charles Woodson wine tasting. Good Luck and Cheers
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Should remain a team sport until there's a winner||
As somebody who played hockey for 18 years and has loved the sport for most of my 53 years, I have to admit that I hate shootouts and skills competitions. It's a team sport and I say play as a team until you have a winner. I would rather see a ten minute period of 5 on 5, a ten minute period of 4 on 4 and the 3 on 3 until it's over or any variation of this. As a goalie, I have played in several tournaments that went staright to shootouts at the end of a tied game and I didn't love it.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Time with my father||
My father served in Korea and M.A.S.H. was one of his favourite shows. It was the one show that we watched together in my youth. Dad lived with me in his last years (until 3 years ago) and we still watched it. He used to find it funny that the show lasted almost 4 times longer than the war.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Big loss to the class||
This is what recruiting is all about. Let's react a little better to this than some are. It's a teenager making an important decision for his own reasons. Let's not be too quick to caste stones about coach hirings or any other perceived shenanigans.
Best of luck to the kid and onto the next recruit.

It wasn't a helmet to HELMET it!
|15 weeks 3 days ago||34-10 Michigan||
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Coffee while we pack the car up||
and then off to Ann Arbor from Windsor. Go Blue!!
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Nursing||
I hope this young man is serious about nursing. Michigan is one of the top 10 in the country. Alabama just makes the top 100 and UGA not so much. Great career choice outside of football.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||31-17 Go Blue!||
|19 weeks 2 days ago||I am among the minority||
I know that it's unpopular on here to say this but I like Wisconsin, Nebraska, Northwestern and a few others. I think that at the very least it's because I've had positive interactions with their fanbase.

|19 weeks 5 days ago||So grateful!||
Thoughts, prayers and thanks to your daughter an all service men and women who serve in the United States and Canadian Forces.
I've had the honour of knowing so many who have served. My late father, Canadian Army, 27 years, served in Korea. My brother in law, a reservist in the Canadian Army, lost both legs and an arm on his second tour in Afghanistan. Countless friends who have served multiple times overseas. I have spent my whole life grateful for their service.
I know how proud you must be of your daughter and am sure that you worry about her. I'll remember her, the crew of the Mason and your family in my prayers.
