Is another possible career path. My wife used to be in public relations and it involved a lot of writing. Most news articles just take a press release written by a PR person and then modified. My wife got to write a variety of subjects from people pieces to science pieces.
Write a Harry Potter like series where you become a billionaire. If this happens I demand 5% for giving you the idea.

we are not going to win TOP with tempo. Yeah, yeah, we may not score more points, but TOP is just as big of a goal as winning. A check mark is a check mark.

that other's jokes should be "better" and more "outside the box". What else do you want from him. He's giving all the empty coorporate lingo he can provide. Ok, ok, he probably also encourages "synergy" in coming up with a better rebuttle.

I'd rather have a coach spend time with the AD at a bowl game, joking and relaxing, rather than get the players prepared. I mean, this is why he is a great coach right, because he's great to have a beer with and loves Michigan?
It definitely worked out well last year. It is this type of preperation that has Michigan right in the hunt for the BIG championship this year.

no moral victories. I can't believe how many are in the "well, if we keep it close" camp. Fack That! A loss is a loss. moral victories are for losers right now, and the only way this is a victory is if we come away with more points than the other team.

I was actually happy as well to not know which "side" he was on and just got to agree with the position he is taking on accessabilty to Michigan and outreach to hear what the different factions that are affected by the regents, have access to the regents.

is just getting off maternity leave with a 2 year old and 4 month old, and I'd bet she would admit to having a lot in common with a hobo over the last 4 months. Her showers were not always frequent, her meals were many times skipped, and her clothes were stained and ragged.

You continuously make me look stupid!
Anyways, I think we can pencil in wins all we want. Just don't use ink, cause that shit ain't erasable.
Also, I hate the fact that 6 wins is now optimistic. Oh pre season me and my 10-2/11-1 season. How naive and full of life you were.

|3 days 10 min ago||Picture on my desk||
I still have a picture of my wife and I (girlfriend at the time) at the game. The picture in the background was 42-3 on the score board. We missed the first score of the game (MSU's field goal) and were there for the next 49. Weird to look at the picture because the stadium is pre renovation and it was the Blue Out game which did not end up looking great.

that you are the type that DEMANDS facts, yet doesn't require the same for himself.
Here is a rehash of what people have said.
In regards to Bacon and Harbaugh
- Many people have spoke to Bacon, who has spoken to Harbaugh. Bacon has relayed that Harbaugh may have some interest in coming to Michigan (roots, love of Michigan etc). This is not a gaurantee that he will come, but there is a zero chance that this is a possibility if Brandon is here. There appears to be other AD candidates that could increase the possibility of him coming here.
In regards to Beilein
- Beilein probably doesn't have a problem with Brandon, but that doesn't mean that Brandon is good for Michigan. Football and Basketball are vastly different at Michigan. Beilein started here with half empty arenas and a decade plus absense from the big dance. Before he raised expectations, getting to the dance and finishing .500 in BIG play was considered a successful career. There were no traditions that were taken down and Beilein's support from the AD (which he lauded of Martin before him when he told RR to come over) has continued. The fact that you use Beilein not leaving as your main argument for Brandon seems to be the ultimate in grasping at straws.
So how about you prove to me that Beilein would leave if we got a new AD and we could get Harbaugh if we keep Brandon, and I will consider your side.

that makes sense. I hate politics.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Gassoff||
In an era of Hobey Baker finalists, and a slew of talent, Gassoff, a scratch player who rarely made the fourth line, had a cult following. He knew what he was there for and played it well.
All the picks from the staff are great. There really are so many great small stories about how much these players are good people. The Denard story is just amazing. It'd be great to hear more of these types of stores than the ones we usually get. How people act when no one is looking type stuff.

|1 week 22 hours ago||Media Emphasis on Defense||
The media is used to the old mantra that defense wins championships since defense is always consistent and offenses can stutter. None of Michigan's teams have had steller defenses and this year should be pretty similar, with I think a few more possible blocked shots.
The problem with this mantra and Michigan is that, under Beilein the last few years, the offense is as consistant as any defense out there. Able to score against long 2-3 zones, shred man to man, and move quickly against presses. So I think it is more young and suspect defense that puts Michigan lower.

If we've only lost to very good teams, then that means that we are pretty good. And if any of these teams can beat a pretty good team(us) then that must mean they are very good. And if all the teams we've lost to are very good....

I was sitting in the back, laughing nervously while everyone else laughed, hoping that no one noticed I had missed the joke.

did the highlighter yellow kill someone in your family?

That looks closer to the helmet on the left than the one in Funchess' hand which appears more orange.
|1 week 1 day ago||Personally||
I like the highlighter yellow much better than the orangy color. The yellow pops really well against the dark blue, and also matches the pants. One thing I've definetely disagreed on with some of the older crowd. (that and I also hate helmets with helmet stickers. Like putting bumper stickers on a porsche or Lamborgini).

he would recruit guys who fit his system and may be recruiting guys he sees that have potential to grow, like Jake Ryan (a three star).
Beilein does the same thing. He recruits high level talent, but only if that high level talent fits within his system. He also identifies guys that are under the radar because they also fit his system and have room to grow.

I had an old guy that was yelling at me at the OSU game for being in his seat. When I showed him how I was not in his seat when I sat down (he had a cusion to define where his seat was) he then complained about where me feet were directly in front of me. He then yelled "don't fuck with me" and his wife swapped seats and there was plenty of room. Very dissapointing that people are like this. It definitely took a lot away from a great day and game. Wish someone would have said something to the guy for you.
