|1 week 3 hours ago||Massive invasion of privacy||
18 year old kids are allowed to take a bullet for this country abroad. If they can make that choice, they should have the right to privacy from their parents. I told my parents everything, but I had many friends who funded their time at Michigan on their own through loans and jobs. The fact that a public university would release what amounts to a medical issue (alcohol abuse is absolutely a medical issue) is asinine.

Both would bring an insane amount of joy to me. We do not need to rank our loves.

|2 weeks 1 day ago||I may be a bit biased because||
I may be a bit biased because I am a huge skier and my parents both did their grad work at the U but SLC (and the surrounding mountains) is one of my very favorite areas to visit.
First, the areas around the ski resorts, downtown, and around the university are far more liberal about many things than the rest of the state. There is actually quite a counter-cultural movement. The drinking laws are still very strict however are a million times better after the Olympics. The only massive difficulty is that you must get your personal liquor at a state liquor store (check hours ahead of time because most aren't open late) and there are a few oddities about how bars can and cannot make certain drinks however it will probably not affect you.
For your day off, I second any suggestion that includes getting out of the city to see the mountains. If you are in the mood for a longer trip, I suggest any of Utah's 5 spectacular national parks (Drive times: zion is far (4 1/2), arches and cayonlands 3 1/2-4, bryce canyon 4, capitol reef 3 1/2). If you want something closer that is a bit more crowded and resorty, do park city. My top suggestion however is to go hiking in the Cottonwood Canyons.
Downtown has a lot of beautiful things like temple square to see that probably can be done on the day of the game. The bar/brewery scene downtown is fairly solid.
I cannot help on tailgating questions because I have only been to basketball games at the U.
Mad jealous of everyone going, enjoy!

|3 weeks 5 hours ago||Jeff Moss is an ass||
He always has been.
However, he has been one of the very best sources for Detroit Sports News since he started doing this crap in 03/04 (I started reading him after he broke the Rick Carlisle firing right before the Larry Brown hire). Yes, he is mean. Yes, he makes a big deal out of things that aren't (this article).
But I read him because he is almost always accurate with the information. He is well connected, it is his analysis that is bad. The fact that he is offensive and rude to everyone does not make his info wrong.

One of the big limitations of the stadium over the bar or home is the ability to have a beer. It would improve the setting drastically

most of the houses at michigan operate on a very tight year to year basis, even some of the older and larger ones
|4 weeks 20 hours ago||I knew Will personally as a student||
Not super well nor would I say we are friends. However, from my dealings with him, he was a genuine, good dude. Sure, he likes to party. Guess what, many athletes and students do as well. It doesn't make you a bad person who is unable to judge someone's character.
I dislike Brandon as much as the next fan, but of the athletes I knew from the big sports, they all loved him and spoke as highly about him as possible.

the basketball tourny isn't the best way to decide a champion ... take a top 8 and play best of 5s
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Since we brought up Radrick||
I would never start a thread for this, but if anyone with eligibility is ever in need of an extra graduate student to complete their foursome, I know of a certain mgoblogger who would be thankful to join. I have never had the opportunity to play Radrick and it is one of my goals while back here for grad school.
I am not an amazing golfer (handicap of 19-20) however I have been playing the student course 4ish times a week so at least I play a lot.

Is huge assuming they actually get one of the University's liquor licenses now. They currently leave so much money on the table

Jozy. He is still far and away our best option up top.
In the end the gold cup will come down to Mexico, CR, and the U.S. If we can Impose our attacking will on the other two, we should have a decent shot at winning it and avenging that awful collaplse in the Rose Bowl 4 years ago.
