Haha- not knowing about Ypsi very much left me no options on the giant pen...water-tower.
Now I see it though. My apologies to Mr. William R. Coats!
Still can't read your username though.

I've read and reread the stated definitions of basket interference and goaltending according to the official NCAA 2013/'14/'15 Men's Basketball rule book- I just can't come to the conclusion, based on the technical descriptions used, that his net touch was any form of a violation.
To be goaltending, it would have to be a defensive player...so that's out.
And, based on the specific NCAA language, I don't think it was basket interference either:
Basket interference occurs when a player:

I realize it wasn't, but what are the circumstances that would have made Morgan's touching the net some form of goaltending / basket interference?
Had I noticed it live, I would have been nervous for the split second of shock after the ball dropped in...

If I were interested in keeping my flag from fading I would use a UV protection product made for fabric similar to this: www.rayandrain.com
I've never desired to keep anything outside my home from fading, so I can't say that the specific product linked above is effective, but if you look online enough, you're bound to find something that gets solid reviews for protecting fabrics like a Michigan flag.
I don't think your only option is to accept that your flags will just wear out every year...at least put up a fight and save some cash.

I absolutely must know if your avatar is of a replica or authentic helmet that is available for purchase somewhere on the internet...
If it is, could you post the link where you found it?

It's highly likely that their tattoos would have been very expensive.
It depends on the artist's reputation for good work, the shop he/she tattoos for, the number of hours/visits it takes to complete the job, etc.
It's like taking your car to the shop- they'll charge you for diagnostics (custom art mock-ups), parts (ink), and labor (time in the chair).
Pryors tattoos, which look to be pretty good work (quality ink, not the message), probably would go for somewhere between $1200-$2000. I'm assuming it doesn't stop at his shirtsleeve and runs over his back- if it does, that's where the high end number comes from...
Lewan is probably looking at somewhere $400-$700, again depending on the artist, etc. Also, I'm only considering what's visible in his pic- those tattoos don't seem like the type that you could assume run up his arm and over his back...
When you know how much tattoos can cost, it's kind of suspicious when you see a 20 year old kid walking around with $2000+ in ink on his upper torso...

It's one of my favorite as well- it's basically what was printed on a shirt given to me at a very young age...that's what started me on the path to becoming a Michigan fan.
Anyway, I basically tried to find the best image of it that was available online which ended up being a picture of a t-shirt on M-Den I believe... I took a screen shot and then touched it up in MS Paint until I had just the logo with no distortions...
On yet another note- I live in GR, MI but I'm from Dayton (specifically Trotwood)...

Isn't this the same guy who was voluntold to leave his job at an Ohio radio station?
Nothing like dismissing a guy for not being a homer and then seeing his opinion reach the masses anyway...

Would it not be in their best interest at this point to just fire him and get it over with?
Surely dragging it out and making the NCAA force your hand will be worse for the program...
If they cut him loose now, they'll have the benefit of partially dissipating the dark cloud hanging over their program (at least in appearance)...they'd also have the huge benefit of getting a new coach at a time when he can build some momentum going into the season. At least hire an interim coach or something like that.
Also, if anyone else like Smith or Gee can be implicated in all of this, you've got to believe they are at this very moment considering ways to cover their tracks. They're probably looking for a way to get rid of Tressel before the hounds are onto their scent....
It's a bad situation as it is- the way they appear to be dragging it out will only make it worse for all parties.
Nothing good can come from letting Tressel remain as head coach for even another day.
However, I'm enjoying what seems to be half-hearted defiance and denial...it'll make the final consequences that much more severe.

I'm a year younger than you...
I've followed your stuff for a pretty long time- before I knew of MGoBlog, I would watch your videos on YouTube.
The reason I mention those things is that before knowing how old you were, I totally assumed you were some dude in his 50's who figured out how to use YouTube and convert/upload all your old VHS tapes to YouTube.
Knowing that you're only about 30ish is kind of a surprise- considering your excellent work documenting Michigan Football...

I don't think it's as major a stretch as you're saying it is...sure, he doesn't only win by cheating- you still have to prepare and coach. But there are a lot of athletes at tUOS right now that were highly sought after recruits before they committed.
You have to consider this outside the context of a few tattoos.
What exactly is going through the minds of recruits who see cash and free tattoos flowing like milk and honey? My guess is that adds up over time to create a very real competitive advantage.

Do they consider special circumstances like having 2 coaching changes in 3-4 years?
I would say our situation could soon fit the letter but not the spirit of the law...
