Not to submit hs name, info is his friend.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Someone below said the odds of making were 50-1||
These odds seem very low. Even as just a guy who played in high school and helps coach youth teams, unguarded which I would assume I would be, I can almost always make a half courter given 5 to 10 shots. And 20 million is life changing money.
However, 2 years is a significant portion of your life. We are not guaranteed any amount of time on earth and giving up two years seems such a great risk. Yes, without a family, I could just get an online degree and workout, but I still don't think that it would be worth it.
Really, the question is, what do you value more: two of your prime years in your 20s or a chance to make $20 million.
It is a really tough call especially because I think I would probably make it, but in the end, I already enjoy my life. I am not risking 2 years of it.

Should I buckle up?
|1 week 21 hours ago||I was at this game||
Awful arena in Ft. Wayne.
csb/ It is also the closest I have ever come to a fight. We are at the one gas station leavng town where we run into some Michigan fans as tired and pissed off as us. These Miami (insert favorite insult here) bros come in talking. Doesn't bother my buddy and I as we are too beat down, but all of a sudden the other Michigan guys are locked up with one and part of the Miami crowd heads for us. Thankfully at the last moment, cooler heads prevailed. Awful night.
|1 week 21 hours ago||not the worst ever, but it was bad||
|1 week 1 day ago||This||
I have been to EL 3 times for games and they have all been awful. Bad weather, rude fans, and awful results. I have pledged to never return.
|1 week 1 day ago||Really?||
Really? You don't have to like Greek Life, hell you can hate it. But Frat-tards belongs on rcmb. Even without discussing how you are stereotyping the largest student group on campus, retard is generally a no go word in today's society and you found a way to use it as an insult.
|1 week 1 day ago||I was very pleased once I saw the second promo||
A video promoting student drinking will never be shown in any official capacity. And it is not like it is a new thing, every year someone makes one.
|1 week 1 day ago||Not even funny to joke about||
They aren't getting U funding so it no longer matters to me.
If people want to pay their own money so someone else can create a party video that is the same as all the other videos of michgan students partying (shmacked, PwP, etc) than let them. It is nothing new.
The biggest thing is there is NO WAY a video of students getting drunk is played in the big house. The second the second prom came out, I was no longer worried.

This discussion right here is why Brian bans politics and religion.
|1 week 2 days ago||Again||
What does this have to do with him knowing something about a sports story in iowa?
|1 week 2 days ago||Why||
Why bring politics in it?
While I disagree with the premise of that article, his political/religious beliefs have absolutely nothing to do with his credibility as it pertains to possible knowledge of a grad transfer in college sports. This is why politics are banned here. They are never (or rarely) relevant to sports.
For instance. I may think Obama is crazy on political issue XYZ. That doesn't stop him from possibly having far more connections to the Chicago basketball scene then I do. Perceived stupidity in one area of thought does not mean stupidity across the board. (Note this is an example, not a reflection of my political leanings.)

Agan, Bacon is after truth.
If we were doing well, winning games, and not having AD drama, Bacon's books would reflect that (Blue Ice, Bo's Lasting Lessons etc.). He is a huge fan of Michigan and I am sure he would prefer to be writing happy stories about winning, but he isn't in the fiction business. With the exception of 2011, football has not had a lot of happy moments in quite a while.
I guess what I am saying is he was writing books when we were winning, it is part of how he makes his living (many professors spend most of their time doing research and writing books). His specialty is on the relationship between college sports and academia in the US. He has particular insight on Michigan due to growing up here, having multiple degrees from Michigan, being a professor here, and just being a fan of Michigan. Basically, he is doing his job. .
|1 week 3 days ago||Bacon hated?||
I don't think so. Maybe by a few who don't like people (in the athletic department and this blog) airing dirty laundry about Michigan, but otherwise no.
I have said it before as have many others on this blog. Bacon was one of the very best professors I had in college and he is only after TRUTH, no matter what that truth is. In doing so, he upholds the values we should hold deepest as students/alumni. As he would say, our motto is Artes, Scientia, Veritas. Truth is our motto.
|1 week 6 days ago||It comes close to mgoblog no go zones||
and we discussed it to death when it happened.
I fail to see what more we can discuss that we didn't last fall.

Nothing good can come of it
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Games I have attended||
(also my family has Lions season tickets, none make my top 20)
1. First game at Wrigley. I was 8 and it was the magical Sosa/BigMac year. It was a night game in July and Sosa hit two jacks. Sports will never be more magical than that moment.
2. Beating Ohio as a senior in 2011 and rushing the field
3. Sugar Bowl 2011 (and the 4 days before it)
4. Rushing the court after we beat Duke (Dec '08) of my freshman year (this is my avatar)
5. US 2 Mexico 0 Sept 2013. Huge win, World Cup clinched later that night. First USMNT game. Landon scored his final US goal and celebrated right in front of me
Worst 5 (not attended)
1. The game I will never mention by name, '03 Cubs
2. Game 7 - Pistons -Spurs 2005
3. Game 7 - Wings - Pens 2009
4. The Game - 2006
5. Michigan - L'ville 2013
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Never forget. Beat State.||
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Yes||
Having taught 6th grade, we give them grades. At least in Detroit they can actually be pretty important because they can affect the high schools you get into.
And yes, it is creepy that rivals is already on to these kids.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||The Alma Mater||
gives me deeper chills than the victors.
Nothing like being arm and arm with your best friends singing it after basketball games regardless of a win or not

go back to RCMB

note, i grew up in a US 10 town
- i believe the bump is applied on a per high school basis
- also, the OP seems to not get that plenty of us achieved this stuff without ever being pushed

Almost anything offends someone. In fact me suggesting this will offend someone
|3 weeks 3 days ago||This thread is very close to the political line||
However, it is always smart to be aware of what you say when around others
|3 weeks 4 days ago||nope||
Twitter has huge strengths for sports. It really is the best sports bar in America. It is far and away your best option for explaining the game and connecting with people who know the game.
The only problem is when people tweet high sschool kids.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||this is the line that gets me||
as well as Beilein reminding everyone that it is we who are blessed to have Austin as a part of our university and basketball program, not the other way around.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||it is the beer||
we have so many great options, blue tractor's beer just isn't on the same level
