"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

Would you ever get red and silver (not same shade as osu, but close) shoes or other clothing? Similarly anything with Spartan green?

Are you trying to get a show on TLC?
|22 hours 22 min ago||Agree, but it's different||
for non-white people. Your name is part of your culture and it's fine to have a common Bible name, if that's your background or belief system.
Take a name like Ashish (or any from this list). It's a very common Indian name and due to the sheer number of boys born in India, likely as common as any name in the world. Any of those names are going to be unique in the US, but I don't think any are ridiculous or obnoxious, since they are legitamite names from another culture.
It's why when I initially hear names like LeMichael, I initially think, that's a dumb name that will not be taken seriously, but then I realize that maybe it's from a different culture, just like any of the Indian names on that list.

My son has an unusual name, but he's a toddler and everybody at daycare calls him a nickname anyway.
So, I'll give you my experiences with my own unique name (it's so unique that I have only heard of, never met anyone else with my first name). It's an ethnic name, but most people wouldn't be sure about the country of origin.
I definately had issues as a kid growing up. Substitute teachers sometimes wouldn't even attempt to say my name. People had difficulty with it ntil about High School. I think by then, ethnic names were more popular and people actually cared about saying a name correctly instead of trying to give me an "Americanized" version of my name.
Anyway, I don't think I've had any resume trouble or career problems because of my first name. I think it's nice not to be in the Top 20 lists and am happy that people think about being sensitive to others with different names, whose parents were born somehwere else.
I think that's why I wanted my son to have a unique name that hints as to where his grandparents are from, but is relatively easy to say. Nobody in my family has ever been named anything like John, Rob, Dave... and I wanted to keep it that way.

Good analogy, but it's more like which one is cheaper, since it's the lesser of 2 evils. That's what I don't understand with the Nike interns that post their pro-Nike propaganda everywhere.

But it's not publicly disclosed and ESPN has been wrong before.

UA pays ND about $9 per year. I can't believe that Texas is worth $15.

Nike has always been shady, from using child labor in China to bribes. It's par for the course.
Their stock did drop like 1% after this story went public, so there's that concern from the world.

Hole seemed to believe that michigan would win simply because of our history and tradition.

But michigan players aren't stupid enough to admit to this on Twitter

It's not that I don't believe you, but you have 16 MGo Points on an account started yesterday.
|2 days 20 hours ago||Agree.||
I don't know why high end gear can't be produced in the U.S. Especially if there is a made in USA patch. They can charge the additional costs to the customer. Look at American apparel (aside from their sleazy ceo)
|2 days 22 hours ago||How do you know this?||
Is it on an insider board? Just curious.
|3 days 31 min ago||How would Balas know?||
I still think michigan is correctly playing both suppliers off each other. This has to be easier than Hackett's previous negotiations with suppliers.
|3 days 34 min ago||That's like saying||
There are starving kids in (insert any city anywhere) so you should be happy you have anything to eat. Kind of pointless.

Landline and so no texts.
|1 week 22 hours ago||As they should||
A lot of what we all write is sarcastic and meant to be funny, but there is honest serious discussion here that the AD would never be able to get otherwise.
|1 week 1 day ago||Of course it does.||
I don't care about the "Chinese walls", but the fact is that a $3M+ a year drop in revenue needs to be offset somehow.
It could be as simple as student fees going to places other than the AD or not needing the school to subsidize band scholarships or travel costs.
You don't just lose $3M+ a year and continue as if nothing happened.
|1 week 1 day ago||Probably Nike||
as the Army doesn't have a ton of MBAs in marketing running the show.
|1 week 1 day ago||Agree,||
We could probably get $5 out of Nike, but I don't think much more. Nike doesn't seem to want to jump into the race with Adidas and UA for paying tons of cash. My guess is that their strategy is to spend money on other things.
Regardless, >$30 million to choose Nike is crazy and there is no way Hackett can justify this when tuition is going up and state funding is going down.
|1 week 1 day ago||Decent deal for UGA||
They are getting close to $4M, and apparantly the most Nike has paid anyone is $4.4M (to FSU).
Adidas pays Michigan $8.2M, so it's not even close.
Put another way, even if Nike comes in and pays Michigan $5M (which would be their most expensive school), Michigan is still short $3.2M per year or $32 million in the 10-year period, assuming Adidas doesn't up their offer.

|1 week 2 days ago||I only have my job||
because I graduated from Michigan and worked at a firm that only hires from top schools (no OSU/ Bama grads) and then got hired in my current position because of Michigan and my prior firm.
Sort of convoluted.
But seriously, for you older people out there, there used to be a large investment bank, DLJ (now part of CSFB) that loved hiring Michigan grads because we were thought to be far more hungry than Ivy league grads.
|1 week 2 days ago||My question is||
that if a kid needs 2-3 playing years in college in order to develop into an NBA player, then freshman ineligibility means that the kid is in school for 3-4 years, thus earning a degree or only being a short # of credits away from one.
It's stupid of a conference to impose this rule, but maybe not for the NCAA. Take a guy like Darius Morris. He played 2 years and then went to the NBA. If he were forced to sit his freshman year, then he would have 3 years of college (plus summers) complete and would be short maybe a semester's worth of credits. That's a good thing.
I guess the thing is that you have to believe that he would not have sat his freshman year, had the same sophomore year and then jumped to the NBA.

I went from working imigrant parents to stuntin in my middle management corporate job in suburbia all because or my Michigan degree?
