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.

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.
|15 weeks 3 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?
|25 weeks 4 days 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.
|25 weeks 4 days 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.
|25 weeks 4 days 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).
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Is this relevant? It seems||
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.
|25 weeks 6 days 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.

|32 weeks 5 days ago||The trajectory win-loss wise||
The trajectory win-loss wise is very similar to 13-14. That said, we've been run off the floor in our losses this year and the talent level isn't nearly as high.
Beilein has earned another year without making the tournament. He's probably earned next year too. Missing four in a row should likely be the end of the line.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||He walked into a tire fire in||
He walked into a tire fire in the post amaker era and took that team to the tournament year 2. He's made 5/8 tournaments including the NC game and had two B1G titles.

I was a student manager for basketball. I emailed the coaching staff as a freshman and got a response from the head manager. I was brought in for a practice to watch what was involved and sat down for a brief interview and got the job.

But also important to note that most cover students cost of attendance based on need using a percentage of income formula. Allows them somewhat to get around the whole athletic scholarship ban.
