- He's making more than Red at Michigan Tech and just signed an extension going through 2020-2021 season
- His original contract had a 275,000 buyout going down 25,000 each year while I'm not certain I'd figure on something similar in the new contract
- Tech is his alma mater who he played for under another legendary coach John Macinnes
- Tech alums are crazy excited for him to be back, my dad who was in school during the same time as Mel can't stop talking about how good Tech is going to be now and about how exciting their return to glory is
- Hockey at Tech is football at Michigan, no sport is bigger or more important to the university or even remotely close to it's level of importance
- College hockey is different in terms of recruiting and dominance the teams currently ranked 1 and 2 North Dakota and Minnesota State are located in Grand Forks and Mankato not really emminently more desirable locations than Houghton

So I think we may be getting a little ahead of ourselves with the Mel coming back train for several reasons
Do I hope Mel comes back to Michigan and we win everything for all the years he's here? Yes, yes I do but I'm just not sure that if Red retires Mel comes back.

So I didn't feel it was worth me starting a post but wnem news out of Saginaw is confirming the verbal commit posted by chatsports. Why does this matter? Because the people at wnem I know confirming the verbal commit have real knowledge on the situation. I know this sounds like more hearsay but based on the journalistic integrity of the people I'm hearing this from I believe that the verbal commit of Harbaugh is real

Daily coverage was good hopefully the news outlets will pickup the video to show the speeches and marching on the president's house. All in all not bad a bad protest considering.

This definitely doesn't seem to support Brandon in any way. I for one could certainly see this being simply an opening remark with a firing coming in the near future

As a member of the UofM paintball team I feel pretty well qualified to answer this question.
My personal opinion is as follows:
It depends on which kind of paintball you enjoy playing, considering you said you're ordering an etek 3 I'm guessing you are thinking about playing some speedball, airball or whatever you want to call it but not playing in the woods. This means that Hell Survivors is essentially out, they have great big games and the open play can be fun but its essentially dead for speedball unless your bringing everybody. Cru in Flint can be hit or miss, nobody ever seems to be there when I decide to go but maybe thats just me. Futureball is a similar boat as Hell Survivors it can be fun but nobody really goes there to play speedball anymore and the only real selling point they have is that they sometimes do bring your own paint which is hard to find anymore. I can't really speak to No limits in Taylor but as I haven't heard of it that most likely means it's not huge on the speedball scene. Now on to the places I recommend you try Warzone, it's in Ohio but it has a great indoor and outdoor they recently got a new set of PSP bunkers and turf for the outdoor and is currently a great place to play the downside being that it is pretty expensive, typically between 60 and 80 bucks depending on what deal they are doing. On the plus side there is a chick-fil-a at the mall nearby which is a worthwhile stopping point unless you go on a sunday and they are closed which sucks. Finally my recommendation TCP in Lansing, they operate out of the old Chaos field which is actually in Charlotte and might be kind of a haul depending on where you're coming from but it has in my opinion the best competition in the state and good prices at 45 bucks for entry and a case.
TLDR go to Warzone or TCP Lansing for speedball, if you happen to be a woodsballer and I read you completely wrong go to Hells or Futureball
also if you currently don't have a pbnation account you should probably go ahead and make on since they have relatively up to date field listings with ratings on them and what ammenities they have
and finally the etek3 is a decent gun but if you want more info send me an email [email protected] and I can point you in possibly a better direction.
and now I realize I've spent the 20 minutes crafting this response and not studying for my reactions exam

I believe they only split into two squads but could be wrong on that, and I'm almost certain that rosters are announced for each squad ahead of time

|5 years 35 weeks ago||jerseys||
I really like our Jerseys I think they will be even better once we swith them to Maize and Blue for next year. The school didn't pay for any of the jersey design fees those all came out of pocket and we ok'd everything. Digital camo would seem to indicate kids running around with guns in woods which is very far from what we do so no thank you I'll stick with what we came up with.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||my role||
I play the Dorito Back position which basically means I shoot a lot so that the players in front of me can advance up the field. All the gear you listed is outdated but in paintball that doesn't really mean much it's kinda like Golf yeah the wooden drive may not work as well as the Titanium shiny one but it will still work.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Maize and Blue||
We would have if Maize(yellow) was allowed in the league we're playing in right now but it's not. When we make our jerseys for next seasons College Series I'll post photos since they will be maize and blue.

anybody know how many seats Michigan Tech's stadium is?
|5 years 36 weeks ago||shotput||
It can be pretty dangerous especially in warmups with multiple throwers throwing at the same time. Especially in high school when people are learning new techniques and shots tend to go everywhere. During my high school days the rule was to never walk with your back to either the shotput or discus rings just in case but it's pretty easy to slip once and get nailed.
