Interesting to see what Saban's reaction will be, as he was quite outspoken against satellite camps and seemed to have ethical complaints more than thinking it would negatively impact recruiting. Will he stand behind his initial position? I think not...
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Interesting timing...||
Attended a talk with David Cutcliffe this morning (I'm wrapping up my mba at duke) and had a good conversation with him about recruiting. He shared a couple Harbaugh stories and mentioned that he was very much against the satellite camps because of the ethical issues that arise with paying high schools). He believes the 'loophole' will be closed soon before the camps transform into an AAU/basketball sponsorship type event.

My wife and I have two dogs, a 4 year old shepherd mix named Bechler and 5 month old golden retriever named Millie.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||I live in Durham and my wife||
I live in Durham and my wife works at UNC, it's taking her over three hours to get home from work today (we're both from Michigan, this is definitely about the area not having the infrastructure to deal with this weather). We talked about trying to make the game, but seems very unlikely (even though tickets are very very cheap).

This weekend is campout for graduate students at Duke. I was lucky enough to get a Dr's note saying that I couldn't participate which means I still can get tickets to the Michigan @ Duke BB game and I can watch the game from home instead of on an iPad on the back for a uhaul after not sleeping for 24 hours.

For my MBA. I've started talking with classmates and already made it clear that I'll be buying as many tickets to this game as possible to distribute to Michigan fans, can't wait. Go Blue.

I'm so excited that I'm breaking out in hives. No really, bad hives, blaming Mr. B's in Royal Oak

Moving to Durham, NC on June 1st and will definitely be taking advantage of this. Already signed up for the Michigan Triangle Alumni Club email, looking forward to connecting with more Wolverines down there! Go Blue

Fantastic piece BiSB, thank you for all of the great contributions!

Theoretically I wouldn't disagree with your points, but it is worth noting that while attending informational sessions for the Ross MBA program they make Michigan athletics and the football Saturday experience a very tangible selling point. It does make an impact on individual decisions to attend the University, and more broadly impacts the Michigan brand that is amongst the most well-known and highly regarded globally. If you eliminated football, Michigan would still be a top notch educational institution, but more akin to prestigous liberal arts schools on the East Coast that don't hold the same global regard.

Re-reading the 'protips' about jump shooting for PSU... kind of stings right now. I realize they're way-too-open looks, but would these guys please miss a few.

"Bo Must Be Proud of These Guys"

Don't knock it til you try it. I've spent a year working in SF, and this still rivals the best I've had. Mitch's family moved to the states in the 60s and he grew up in San Jose.

OP, that sounds like a glorious day. I checked out a little early myself and hit an awesome bottle of Pinot noir from Willamette Valley in Oregon. Took the second bottle with my fiancé to Toro Sushi (Chicago). If you like sushi and are in Chicago, it is hands down the best in the city, and Mitch the chef is the man.

Just getting back to GP with the fiancé. Stopped for an 8-corner pizza from Jets. There is nothing you could do to take this smile off my face (plus her parents both went to MSU). Go Blue!

Hearing back from grad school at Duke next month - if I get in I'll try to figure out a way to send in an application even though I won't be moving to the state until next summer.

27-17, the score makes the game feel closer than it actually was, they score a garbage touchdown at the end of the game.

Been out there the last couple of days, and have to agree that the Europeans seem to present a more unified 'team.' Hope we can pull together, the morning has been tough.
