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 week 2 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.
|1 week 2 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.

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 week 4 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.

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.

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.

Don't worry. Whoever we draft will be a total bust. That's the Browns QB way.

I screamed and lost my voice. But it's fucking hard to keep yelling after OSU has converted their 50th 3rd down of the game.

The Rose Bowl missed out on their last chance to take Iowa in 2002. I have a hard time believing they pass them up again this time.
That said: vs. Notre Dame in the Fiesta? Would love to see that.

Exactly. Beat Ohio state. Go to Phoenix/Atlanta. A great season is still possible if we win the games in front of us.

Then what is the other side of the coin? How is that a two-sided solution? What is to be done other than "getting your shit together"? I don't follow the reasoning behind your yes answer.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||if it has to be a huge effort||
if it has to be a huge effort on both sides, doesn't that mean doing things now to alleviate poverty and create the conditions for black advancement? Saying come back once you've met some sort of worthiness standard doesn't sound like a two sided solution to me.

You do bring up concerning statistics, but are they cultural issues? It seems to me that all three of the issues you brought up have more to do with lack of resources as opposed to any sort of cultural pattern.
