He CAN use it but it would be subject to FOI requests.

This is a better pic
But I'm not sure why this matters and why it's being brought up now. He's had it this whole time. It's a pinky finger.

Not for UM golf course -- just the private one across from the stadium

I agree. Addidas tends to be more tight fitting, like a soccer jersey, and I just find Nike shirts more comfortable. I tend to wear my old Nike shirts more than my newer Addidas shirts for that reason. I don't care so much about the "look" of the brand, as some do, rather the fit.

Thirded? Except, expand that to a cabin anywhere along Lake Huron or Michigan. Cabins are usually less well kept than the hotels, but they provide an on-the-beach experience you aren't going to get out of a holiday inn -- campfires on the beach and such. Great fun and one of my favorite vacations.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Oh, absolutely. But in||
Oh, absolutely. But in academics they do because it's all about attracting talent. Go look at some of the UM administrators, I'd wager that most probably have a degree in something completely unreleated to what they're actually doing or what department they're in.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Yes, fuck student loans. Out||
Yes, fuck student loans. Out of college you get a job and you're like, "Man, I'm rich!". And then the bill for your loan comes in and you're like, "is that even legal?"
|2 weeks 3 days ago||It's certainly an interesting||
It's certainly an interesting discussion. What is missing is the qualifications said University Administrators today vs. what they used to be. I don't know how it was in the 1960's, but today college administrators tend to be highly educated individuals themselves -- ones with plenty of degrees to hang on the wall and ones who may have even been faculty members at one point. There's this whole recruiting thing that goes on now, trying to get the best names in the department to rank higher compared to the other schools. In tern, getting the better kids to come and spend their money here so the University can brag about their successes after graduation. I think you'd be hard pressed to find simple undergraduate degree holding individuals in Administration positions at UM. And when people get doctorate degrees in things, there's an expectation, especially in academics, that they get paid for well.
Somehow I still don't believe that even high adminstration costs adds up to OOS students paying $40,000 a semester. I mean, think about that. There's like 40,000 UM students and about half or more are OOS students. Even if your average adminstrator makes $120,000 a year, that's only 3 out of state students to pay for that. It just doesn't seem like it's a large enough number to really impact tuition rates as much as it has.

I don't think many people looked at this image very closely.

Then there was that time Harbaugh visited the set of Saved by the Bell:
.....oh....wait....that really happened.
I just realized it's odd to do this with Harbaugh because the lines of reality and fiction are blurred by his actions in real life. This is one of the first threads where I went to go put him in a picture, SBTB -- specifically the "I'm so scared Jessie Spano drug episode" -- and realized that he had actually done that before.

Terrible. That's one of those diseases I never want to get. Not that any terminal illness is good, but that one is particularly bad.

They fight in the comics. But it's still stupid. Batman is a guy in a suit. Superman would burn him with his eye lasers and it would be the end of that fight.

This crap should be deleted. Nothing but clickbait. Honestly, who gives a shit what Jim Rome thinks? Let alone about a minor interview and some advice he gave to a player that isn't even ours? The NFL really doesn't give a shit if someone from Publix gave him some crab legs or not.

I like it given the other night games this year. I like the night games at home, but I'm not sure I'll feel the same with 3 already confirmed games this year.

I'd say it has more to do with being in a metropolitan area of around 2 million people + 75 degree weather than anything else.

Ithaca NY is a relatively small town. It's population is only around 30,000. Compared to A2's 130,000.

lol what? My bomb shelter? I take it you must travel to every city around the country yearly in order to not be a shut in?
I prefaced it for a reason, because I haven't seen it in a while. That doesn't mean I'm a shut in. It just means that the one time I went there I found it hard to find good places to eat. Maybe it's because they didn't exist or maybe it's because they were hard to find and you needed to be a townie to know about them. No matter what, I found it hard to compare to Ann Arbor and I find it hard to believe that its' changed enough in 15 years to surpass the food options we have here.
Plenty of places will be about the same 15 years ago as they are now -- at least in terms of food options.

I read the article, seemed to me like an announcement about a night game is imminent. It just doesn't seem like it will be MSU.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I take issue with Ithaca NY||
I take issue with Ithaca NY being higher than Michigan. We went to Ithaca probably like 15 years ago and unless things have changed we spent like hours at a time looking for places to eat. There's nothing there; certainly nothing close to A2's Main St.

No politics....while not on the surface super political, it always ends up there pretty quickly -- hence being locked.

It's a weird feeling to look at this tape hoping he looked great, despite knowing it was against my own team.

Pulling kids out of SEC territory is pretty awesome. He also got Karan Higdon from Florida. This needs to happen as the talent in the Midwest has been diminishing for some time. I like it.
