And the fact that Michigan would have its own exclusive window vs sharing with any other game. I have no issue with this.

Make that a good chance of south beach. Remember: our tie in with the Orange Bowl means the highest ranked B1G team not in the rose bowl and CFP goes there unless outranked by an SEC team. That will be a B1G team considering how highly ranked they are this year.

What I'm saying is, the official policy is you may enter with any valid Buck ID...they aren't checking to make sure its yours.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||From my memory (this may have||
From my memory (this may have changed) at OSU you don't need to upgrade the ticket if you show a OSU student ID. And by that I mean ANYONE'S student ID. If you're taking your daughter's friends ticket, ask to borrow her student ID as well.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||I've done it||
I grew up in Cleveland, and sat in the student section with my OSU friends in my Michigan gear in 2006. Here's a list of things that happened to me during the game:
I also sat in the student section for the 2008 game, when none of these things happened.
Although I wore my Michigan gear during the game, I wore a black coat over all of my gear outside the stadium before the game. Where it can get really out of control is outside the stadium, where ushers (who in my several experiences down there, have always been friendly and gone out of their way to make sure I could come to them with any issues) are not present.
Based on my experience, the inside experience should not be something you're worried about. Just be careful outside the stadium. And no, no one will ostrasize the ticket seller because you're a Michigan fan.

Agree with you 100%. The guy took RUTGERS into the top 5. And to top it all off, he's only 50...he's got plenty of coaching years ahead of him. Schiano should be their option 1

For tonight, I like Tennessee at -22.

"What number is that?"
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Spreads like this are||
Spreads like this are generally just so uncertain, since it depends so much on how fast Michigan would get out to a big lead.
There are plenty of other games to take action on this weekend. I'd suggest you do that.

Ann Arbor MIP:
Meaning on first offense, pay the fine, 6 months non-reporting probation, no testing, and then expungement from the record. (assuming first offense)
Fake ID is a separate charge.

But why, both in general and specifically in this case? What's the difference between student government president and football player on scholarship, or football player not on scholarship?

On what grounds?
Are we really going to judge this person to a different standard than anyone else? We don't know the details of what happened on the sidewalk, but in regards to the fake ID, this seems to be a victimless crime and should be treated as such.

The kid used a fake ID to get alcohol (pending charge) and was convicted of a civil infraction for blocking a sidewalk.
That's not dumb. That's normal for any 19 year old in Ann Arbor.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||Honestly, you don't even need a separate division for that||
Instead of going to the New Mexico Bowl, get the group of 5 conferences to send their top 4 conference champs (with the exception of any qualifying for the full CFP) to a 4 team tournament to be played during the bowl season. its a way to give these teams something to play for against other high level talent within the group of 5.
|45 weeks 5 days ago||I second this||
It is a well known secret amongst many that the Lloyd Hall Scholars Program (at least it was around 10 years ago when I matriculated) was the backdoor to guaranteeing central campus. Two classes in the dorm (freshman comp in the fall, an arts/writing class in the spring) and your commitment is over. And at least in that program, the overwhelming number of participants were in it for the same reasons your son would likely be for it.
He should reconsider MLCs and their commitments. Not even necessarily from an academic perspective, but from a pure housing situation.

North Dakota is a D1 school...just in the Big Sky Conference. Not much different for our perspective, but they made the jump a few years ago.

Yep. Close-ish games that were always somewhat out of our reach was the hallmark of the amaker era. This year has very much felt that way.

I don't think they have access to those channels outside of football season. Same reason that they don't show every home basketball game and push some to BTN+.

I'm a Ross MAcc grad, so I'll chime in.

This is on point. He hasn't recruited a single successful big man other than Mcgary since he's been here. An inside presence would create space for all of the shooting this offense is based around.

No, but you've generalized an entire generation by stating that everyone with student debt isn't making an effort to pay. Considering I'm one of those people, I have a very difficult time believing that to be true.

Do you know anyone under the age of 30? And have you read the responses of people on this board?
|1 year 3 weeks ago||College is not the right||
College is not the right place for everyone. But it is the right place for some people who don't have the means to pay for it.
I also view my student loans as an investment. Without them, I wouldn't be where I am today and I'm thankful that that opportunity was available to me, but just as I view student loans as an investment in myself, society at large can view subsidized education as an investment in an educated population, which will reap benefits for the economy as a whole. People shouldn't believe that their loans should go away because they are entitled to it (with exceptions of course, such as fradulent recruiting tactics), but if the entire country is better off in the long run wiping the slate clean and moving forward, then its something to consider.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||But federal student loan||
But federal student loan rates aren't adjusted for the cost of borrowing: for grad school, they are 5.5% for stafford loans and 6.8% for plus loans. And those rates are set regardless of what interest rates are accross the board. And granted, those are lower than when I was in school 5 years ago, but not by a whole lot.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||You're arguing that anyone||
You're arguing that anyone who can't afford to go to school without some sort of governmental assistance should not, yes? Because at that point, you're saying that only the wealthiest quarter to half of the population should be eligible for college.

Also Darien Rowayton Bank.
I shopped between all three and was able to use their offers against one another to get an even lower rate. Don't be afraid to haggle that rate lower (and get a sign-up bonus).

Is this relevant? It seems that most people are talking about debt forgiveness because of its impact on this country's economic health, not to promote the interests of certain people over others.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Agree that this could be||
Agree that this could be handed better, but allow me to present a parallel:
Getting admitted to college occurs before senior year final grades are in. Colleges can (and will) recind offers of admission if grades are not kept up. Rescissions often occur after a student has turned down all other offers of admission.
My point is, the staff should evaluate recruits on their entire body of work, and continue to evaluate them until NSD. If they do not like what they see, and give advance warning that their offer is in jeopardy (like what seems to be done in this case but could have been done better), then I have no problem offering scholarships and rescinding them on a limited basis.
