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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I plan to bargate not on campus, but either somewhere downtown (Jackson's Hole is official Michigan bar and is near the Hennepin Ave. Green line stop) or on Hennepin on the east side of the river (New Bohemia is as close to a tailgate as you can get in a bar - huge TVs, 30+ taps, and 15 different varieties of brats, in addition to other bar food).
As an alternative tailgate experience, I'd recommend doing some of the breweries in northeast minneapolis. You can walk between them, and they all have food trucks parked on site for food. Once you're ready to head towards TCF, an uber wouldn't be more than $10.

The only point I really see to her article is one that I think resonates with many: the term "middle class' no longer truly refers to a specific class of people, but moreso a set of ideals and worldview.
Political and economic discussions in the US don't revolve around the poor or rich (at least primarily): they revolve around the "middle class" and "small business owner". We want to be viewed as self-supporting and hard working, but not out-of-touch and above others.
it doesn't surprise me at all that the author referred to herself as middle class. Growing up in a household that made a similar claim, which I now find to be absurd (moreso than the author's claim), walking around and claiming that we were "rich" would have made us outliers. Claiming to be a member of the middle class makes you a part of the collective and resonates with other people who want to be viewed similarly.
My point is is that when we're talking about economic class, we might as well throw away the term "middle class". Because having groups of very poor, "middle", and very rich tells us very little about how our society functions.

Agree with you there that based on what we know, it would seem that a salary adjustment is in order. But its hard to see it coming now, since those who have donated have really stepped up and given this guy a car/insurance/whatnot already.
I've don't understand the idea of having a minimum wage be less than a livable wage. While there are circumstances where the following is not true, we're essentially saying that its ok to pay people less than what it takes for people to live on. What that number is I don't know, but it seems to me that it's falling short for many people.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||I'd have to imagine there are||
I'd have to imagine there are a large number of people working somewhere in between minimum wage and 12 an hour. Per the 2010 census, 19% of US households had an income of less than $25k. And on average, 2 people live in those households.

1. The transportation situation, as it stands right now in Detroit, is atrocious.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||The occassional ride from a||
The occassional ride from a coworker on a random day of the week is not an option for a reasonable commute. Having a shift job requires you to have some form of routine, and I don't see how accepting a lift 2 days a week alleviates his problems.
I agree that we don't have all of his family details (other than that he lives with his girlfriend), and that assuming he doesn't support others, his income is about twice the poverty rate. But it doesn't change the fact that he can't afford to buy, maintain, and insure a car, and that no real alternatives to a car exist. His commute is an undue hardship upon him. And based on having one of those, its clear that salary is an issue in this case. Otherwise it seems to me he'd own a car and drive 30 minutes each way.
Again, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt in that he doesn't live beyond his means (and based on the fact that he works or commutes 20 hours a day, I'd highly doubt he does). And if this is the case, there's no way that this is not a salary issue.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||It's hard to look at this||
It's hard to look at this man's story as true and say that all employers pay a decent wage. To me, a decent wage means being able to afford life's necessities and a measured amount of leisure expenses, including the cost or a reasonable commute. I don't think anyone here thinks that covering 20 miles in 4-6 hours is a reasonable commute.
In regards to the transit discussion above, has any research been done into providing some sort of auto insurance or car purchase tax credit? With the infrastructure in detroit so low to begin with, an income measured tax credit, similar to that for property tax in many states, may be a way to kickstart transportation solutions. I have no idea what this would cost compared to alternatives, but seeing that mass transit requires a large, comprehensive network to function properly, it could be an attractive option to get moving faster.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Agree with you in hindsight||
Agree with you in hindsight that LSA to MAcc would have made more sense, and that moves could have been made that were more financially reasonable. My interest was largely in finding a corporate finance role entering Ross, and eventually going back for an MBA. I-Banking hours were too much for me and I never really had a strong interest in consulting. And then the recession hit and corporate finance jobs largely disappeared, even at Ross. I landed on my feet at a big 4 internship in tax, which meant a full time offer was waiting for me on the condition that I complete the MAcc (Ross doesn't even offer enough undergrad accounting classes to be licensed as a CPA). I now work in international tax and really enjoy what I do. Furthermore, I was able to transfer to another office when my fiancée was admitted to a PhD program, flexibility I wouldn't have necessarily had in I banking or consulting.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||I'm a ross undergrad and MAcc||
I'm a ross undergrad and MAcc alum, and from what I recall the master in accounting program has an 80-90% big 4 placement rate. And that despite the fact that Ross doesn't have an undergraduate accounting program.
I can't speak to Northwestern or ND as I didn't go there, but Michigan has an excellent program in nearly everything, and on cost/prestige alone, it would be hard to pass up in state, with the exception of certain programs specifically (ie Journalism). I will say that from an alumni relations/connections standpoint, ND is equally as strong and would not discard it on those merits alone.

For many if not most students, the tailgate is the event. And the game, if you make it, is often simply coming down either in blazing heat or wind and rain on metal bleachers, often while sitting in the 80th row. And while not showing up makes no sense to me, I respect that 40,000 other students may not share my opinion, and have a hard time believing that 20,000 are as passionate as I am.
What is the solution if you really want to increase overall attendance? We have enough demand for tickets (as long as the opponent is not Akron). A basketball-style system of claim periods in a capped student section might make things better. The students who really want to go will claim, while those who don't may not for fear of losing their ability to claim for the rest of the season. Will the students hate it? Yes. But I have a hard time believing that whatever system is created they will be happy.

Enough with the neutral site BS. Team with the highest record gets to host with a higher than usual number of guaranteed seats for the visitor (say 10,000). The number of empty seats in that building is outrageous.
And why would you have the big ten title game in the place in your conference that cares about football least?
|3 years 27 weeks ago||The big numbers and bigger||
The big numbers and bigger stripes on the helmets...kind of reminds me of nfl blitz
|3 years 27 weeks ago||I'm assuming the OP doesn't||
I'm assuming the OP doesn't want to cause a ruckus though. He would just want to wear a Michigan sweater and cheer the same as any other fan would.
As long as he were a polite guest I would see no problem.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||The right decision was made.||
The right decision was made. By going, any slip up could land your wife in trouble. There's no need to take that kind of risk.
How ohio to have this kind of stipulation though. Your purchase of tickets, parking, and concessions still flows through to the school and increases their bottom line. If you invited a guest who happened to be a fan of a rival school to attend a Michigan home game, would you ever force them to be quiet and wear either neutral or Michigan gear? I would never.

Except they aren't
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Now that they are on equal footing with the Big East||
Why should they go? Big East football is now going to be temple and conference USA circa 2002. Why spend on the extra travel costs to play those teams?
This is the smart move.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||My argument is not against GT in specific||
but against further B1G expansion in general. See below.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||This||
We already only play Wisconsin and Penn St. 2 out of every 5 years. Why should we give up more of these games for Maryland, GT, and Rutgers?
Essentially, this ends the B1G as a conference: it's two conferences with a common championship game.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||No No No No No No No. No.||
No No No No No No No.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||BEAT OHIO||
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Take a Michigan fan who is a veteran or active duty||
They will both be both well deserving of the gift and prepared for self-defense in columbus.
You rock dude.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||40 point lead. Higher than||
40 point lead. Higher than usual.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||So many open looks for||
So many open looks for IUPUI...the defense scares me going forward.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||The reason we added more||
The reason we added more student seats was because we had more applications than available seats in the student section. So students were being placed in other areas of the stadium with available seats. Often, freshmen who did not go to M knowing anyone were being placed alone in odd corners of the stadium, deprived of their student section experience. My sophomore year was spent sneaking my freshman girlfriend into the student sections since her seat was alone in section 38.
I'd rather have empty seats at the top of the student section than to go back to that.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Part of the "C" problem is where you are sitting||
I can hear the C pretty well in section 3. Its the A I can't hear.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Notre Dame is a much smaller||
Notre Dame is a much smaller school where nearly all students live in Dorms, and greek life is non-existant. The campus culture is so different that it is not comparable.
Besides, ND offers a capped number of student tickets not only to ND students, but also to those at St. Mary's and Holy Cross. So there's that to consider.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Am I happy that the students||
Am I happy that the students don't always fill in before kickoff? No. But this is not a unique Michigan problem. Plenty of other schools have this issue: see Florida today.
But taking away tickets is not the answer. At the end of the day, the school is run for the students, and as long as there is sufficient space for student tickets, they should be available to every student regardless of attendance records.
Should we give the best seats to people who show up? Of course. The current system of assigned seating based on credit hours makes little sense.
And finally, the students did fill in today. When the team needed the stadium loud, it was.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||No. Stanford/someone else||
No. Stanford/someone else will take that spot from us.
No chance a 3 loss Michigan rises enough in the polls to get into the top 14 anyway.

1. It is early in the game.
2. Texas has no defense, and therefore most of their wins will be somewhat close.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Iowa really is terrible on||
Iowa really is terrible on both sides of the ball. I'm glad NW is likely to get them out of the way today.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Same||
Since I'm attending, 3:30/2:30 beats 11 any saturday.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Have you considered an exit||
Have you considered an exit row seat instead?
|3 years 32 weeks ago||Its because we're going up||
Its because we're going up against Mississippi St -Alabama and ND-Oklahoma. But yes, a little strange to be on ESPN 2 for a night game.
|3 years 32 weeks ago||One advantage||
ABC/ESPN can cut your game short (see today)...BTN will not.
Doesn't the BTN get a pick over ESPN like once or twice a year? This may have been that after ABC passed on it.

That's a TD. The ball def broke the plane. But prob won't be overturned.

Golson left with an injury. Rees came in and has played the rest of the game.

Did anyone catch any of the WVU game today? What happened to them?

|3 years 33 weeks ago||Main Takeaway||
We're going to win when Denard can out-athlete the other team.
We're likely to lose when he can't.
Nothing new here.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||IU WOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!||
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Touchdown Hoosiers. wide open||
Touchdown Hoosiers. wide open TE on after a pump fake.
This team has lost to Ball State two years in a row. This one is far from over.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Hoosiers in redzone||
Hoosiers in redzone again...but nearly give it away on a fumble.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||They had a 35 yard Post route||
They had a 35 yard Post route pass to get them near the red zone, and they capped the drive with an easy 19 yard screen pass to the right. They made the whole drive look effortless.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||That looked way too easy for||
That looked way too easy for IU...
|3 years 34 weeks ago||I agree. He seems to make way||
I agree. He seems to make way more moves this year as opposed to sticking to running north and south. It is def a step back.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||A game to keep an eye on...||
Towson -LSU. Right now Towson is down just 8 at the beginning of the second half, and is driving...
LSU could blow this one wide open (which they likely will), but keep your eyes open.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Bray throws a pick for||
Bray throws a pick for Tennessee
Munchie Ligoux throws a TD with 13 to go to give Cinci the lead.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||To be fair||
Anyone who goes on another team's message board after beating them is asking for trouble.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Tennessee is about to get||
Tennessee is about to get punted to, with a chance to tie it up at GA.
Also, VT scores with 1:49 to go to give themselves a 4 point lead over Cinci...
|3 years 34 weeks ago||This is why anytime you have||
This is why anytime you have a potential fumble, you should just let the play keep going.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||It's ok to go for the strip||
It's ok to go for the strip when the ballcarrier is wrapped up or has no chance of additional forward progress. Don't try to strip the ball from him mid stride.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||NOT!||
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Unreal. Score 63 and lose.||
Unreal. Score 63 and lose. The big 12 has no defense.

Well that was fast...a lot of room to run on that drive.
In other news, Baylor just scored again...its now 70-63 with 3 to go. I would def onside in this situation.

Illinois is this bad.

this is far more entertaining than watching Illinois/Minnesota implode.

That is clearly a pick for Iowa. Nice job to take it right out of the receiver's hands.

Staee is in the division. I'd prefer they lose.
That is my tiebreaker.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Good thing HanoHano is moving||
Good thing HanoHano is moving his arms...
But agree, BYU should take this 14 plus.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||The defense was spectacular.||
The defense was spectacular. To hold ND to 13 points and 240 yards on the short fields they had all night was incredible.
But simply put, Denard blew this one. A senior quarterback can not make those throws. It was a serious regression on his part. It pains me to put this one on him, but it is deserved.
Do I hate denard/want him pulled? No. He's still our best playmaker and has earned his role as the leader of his team, and has bailed us out many times before. But I am ready for Denard to graduate and for Shane Morris to come in and take over the position.
Finally, the B1G is super weak this year. We can still win the conference and get to the Rose Bowl, in which case, all from this game would be forgiven.

Holy crap this sucks.

If you'd leave your email, I have comparable tickets that I'm selling, and can def beat them on price....lets talk.

ND second since the other major opponent is likely to be stronger. If we go to 9 conference games, then I would want to see C-C-M/ND.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||This game is not a B1G game.||
This game is not a B1G game. Its not a bowl game. Its a nonconference game.
If the goal is the B1G championship, it is still in reach. And this team can still get there.
Learn and move forward, and remember:
THOSE WHO STAY WILL BE CHAMPIONS
|3 years 38 weeks ago||Injuries are flukes. Playing||
Injuries are flukes. Playing a different team is not going to increase the risk of a player getting injured.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||So do what then, sit at home||
So do what then, sit at home and play no one? Move down to the MAC?
Honestly the focus of this game for the next week is going to be: Alabama is still Alabama. Not Michigan is terrible. And then in a few weeks when Michigan starts playing conference foes no one is going to think about it.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||1. There was 0 expectation||
1. There was 0 expectation that we were actually going to win this game.
2. It was at the beginning of the season. By October/November, in the thick of the B1G race, it will be forgotten.
If we had won, the reward would have been huge. But there is little risk in losing this game. The right decision was made, even though we were thoroughly destroyed.
