While I wish them failure on the field, I want all young people to do well off of it.

crowd won't be as good as it should as it is spring break
|1 week 4 days ago||If he were to come back||
If he were to come back tonight (doubt it but still), play the final 9 and let's be hopeful and say 3 btt games, he will have played 26 out of 34 (76%) games before the post season. I think that is enough games to warrant end of year award consideration. He has to be on the mid season lists in case such an situation were to happen. I do think he shouldn't be eligible for all big ten though because at best he will play in 10/18.
|1 week 4 days ago||He has played||
14 out of 22 games which isn't close to "hardly played." It is a season long award, not a big ten award.
He has put up a line of with a line of 17.6 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 5.2 APG and is highly efficient. It is not odd to still think he is a top 10 SG on the season.
Buddy Hield wins the award easily though because ya, he is incredible.

It is of some of my buddies and I. Due to the particular collection, it has to be the 2012-2013 season. Red wristband plus btn would suggest nebraska.

|2 weeks 4 days ago||I said it comes close. I do||
I said it comes close. I do not know what communication was offered, however it appears we certainly told these boys at one point that they had a scholarship they could commit to to attend the University of Michigan. Both of these young men are out of state so we are talking $40K+ offers a year to them. Now maybe there were strings attached (like any academic scholarship also has), but we do not know this.
Look, I am fully aware my view is meaningless. This doesn't mean I have to feel comfortable with the fact that part of my university MIGHT be acting in a manner that I consider questionable on ethical lines.
I hope I am wrong and communication was always clear and that the scholarships had very clear strings attached to them that were unfortunately not met. Anything less seems like we're taking advantage of high school students for our own gain which seems unethical to me.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I think this one is fair||
as it deals with what we want next year.
I don't like pushing out recruits. I fall squarely into the camp that Michigan should hold itself to a higher standard. I feel we come close to violating our school motto of truth with the practice. Finally, I can't imagine what it would feel like if I had been given a scholarship to this school and then had it yanked through no fault of my own (Weaver's case).
I also realize many disagree and/or don't care as long as we win. I also realize my thoughts (and yours) don't really matter.

solid non-con home and home
|4 weeks 2 days ago||As a current grad student||
I am not pleased. This take over is forcing the closure of my favorite bar in Ann Arbor, Habana because it is located below the location this pretzel place will occupy. Habana currently is one of the few dancing options on main street (or really ann arbor) that is both cover free and caters to the mid-20s Ann Arbor crowd. There are rumors the owners may try to revive it somewhere but it is just sad that a bar that is packed every Friday and Saturday has to shut down for what appears to be nostalgic purposes.

Amazing article on the importance of being a supportive parent.
While it is different from being an athlete like in the article, I still remember the day somewhere near the end of my junior year in high school when my father sat me down and made sure I understood that I didn't have to follow my mom and his footsteps into their chosen field of chemistry. Dad and I had just taken a college visit to a school out west where I think I surprised him by choosing to meet with the head of the chemistry department.
He said something along the lines, "(Hailtothevictors08), you hate chemistry, why would you ever want to choose to work in a field you hate? Your mom and I want you to be able to enjoy your field of study in the way we enjoy chemistry."
I can honestly say that short conversation was one of the most important I have ever had.

unless you plan to fly or take a winter boat ride across lake michigan, you either have to go down, then up, then over or take the scenic route and go up, over, and then down
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I am sure this is a minority view||
But I don't love this. Spring Break is one of the only true breaks these guys get. Bowl season eats Christmas and most are on campus training all summer. Not everyone uses spring breaks to party, some see their family or go on mission trips.
I get that Harbaugh is trying to run a tight ship and that other teams make similar trips, but these guys deserve a break at some point. At some point you have to allow them to make their own decisions. If they screw up, you deal with it. That is called life experience.
Overall, it is a very sound plan and I am sure the players will say the right things and enjoy it the best they can. I just tend to feel we ask an awful lot of our student athletes and everyone needs a break at some point.

|7 weeks 2 days ago||What is a Quality Loss?||
Seriously, like they aren't bad losses sure but quality? Also, UConn isn't that good.
NCSU and Texas are decent wins but who know if they will actually be top 50 wins.
The truth is we probably need at least one win over purdue, state, or maryland during the conference season. This is very possible because this team can firebomb someone from three but that seems to be the only way we beat any of them.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||“Gradually it was disclosed||
“Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either -- but right through every human heart -- and through all human hearts. This line shifts. Inside us, it oscillates with the years. And even within hearts overwhelmed by evil, one small bridgehead of good is retained. And even in the best of all hearts, there remains ... an unuprooted small corner of evil."

becasue it is finals season. I can't imagine where the boys find the time even to play teams like this
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Hey||
This is one of the reasons I am in no rush to get married even at 25. I like spending my free time watching sports, skiing, playing golf, and going to bars with friends. I figure if that ever gets stale, maybe it is time to find someone.

Anytime someone swears, kisses someone, or says "love" you drink. This alone will put you well on the way to black out.
Also anytime you see Mia (the girl who tries to get Snape to cheat) you scream (Insert favorite word for female of promiscuously loose morals) and drink.
Anythime you hear the old rockstar dude's song.
There are more but that should be enough to make you either not remember the end of the movie or make you drunk enough to think the ending is cute and heart warming (which it is).
I have a group of college friends across the country who i don't get to see alot. We all watch it on the same night and skype/facetime each other during. This part is probably why I love it.
