"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

|6 weeks 2 days ago||Why did accept moving the MSU game?||
With the team still young, another road rivalry game that could be the difference in competing for the big ten championship this year, and lousy schedules every other year with no rivals.

Dewar's on the rocks.

I would wait on the calc 2; take an easy elective instead.
|10 weeks 7 hours ago||Congrats!||
I hope this is the prototype, and volume production soon?
|11 weeks 6 days ago||I thought calc 3 was pretty easy actually||
Calc 2 is tough, and diff eq tougher.

It really is a great school, and excellent value. Classes transfer to just about anywhere and you'll save a lot of money.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||The anomaly is proven this year||
We win at MSU. I just don't buy that state is in 're-load' mode as a program. Their success recently is due in large part, or some part, to the vacuum in recruiting success for Michigan from 2008 to 2011. I think our guys have a will to win this game and make it happen. The game at Ohio? The freshman are sophomores, sophomores are juniors; anything can happen in this game, see last year.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Correct||
But thought it was thread-worthy on it's own.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Per the NCAA process?||
I wonder if that is the only forum in which to fight a decision that impacts one's ability to attend school at a public institution, or potential earnings in the millions of dollars at risk.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Makes sense, but||
It can be argued that the spirit of the NCAA view on the appropriate punishment is in effect now, and the punishment is meant to be served from the time of the offense. I am not a lawyer, but I wonder if there is precedent for this type of argument.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Really?||
Not the greatest analogy, but if you were fired from your job for archaic rule that had already been changed, would you take it lying down?
|12 weeks 5 days ago||The rule changes then||
But enacted recently. That doesn't mean the term of the suspension would begin for him individually when the rule changes, if it can be argued that the spirit of the NCAA view on the appropriate punishment is in effect now, and the punishment is meant to be served from the time of the offense. I am not a lawyer, but I wonder if there is precedent for this type of argument.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Wishful thinking||
After seeing the reaction of the national media, namely ESPN, I am wondering if the announcement of Mitch intending to declare and his openness about the circumstances is a strategic PR move. It is amazing to me that with all the legal power Michigan has, that they cannot win an appeal to a rule that changed literally weeks after the offense. Mitch has implied that he would have stayed if not for the 1 year suspension; and if held to the new 6 month rule he would be able to play in the fall, correct? Is Michigan drumming up support and planning to take another swing legally?

For the contract extension; he is coach through 2016 unless the wheels fall off.

That'll cut it short a little.

By the 2015 season, Hoke will have a team with balanced experience, and built solely with players he recruited. Of the ranking bear themselves out, a very talented group as well.
|17 weeks 8 hours ago||Get rid of the commitment process||
If you offer a player a scholarship and they are a junior in high school or older they can accept it at anytime and it is binding.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||Nussmeier influence?||
More focus on the running ability..
|26 weeks 3 days ago||Still don't understand why||
It can't be organized like baseball and hockey, let them be drafted or not and they have the choice to stay in school. Or at least they can declare, and if not drafted come back to school.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||Great news!||
So many of us take our health for granted, best wishes for you and stay positive!

He was born a man.

Round 1: trade down a few spots for Mike Evans
|27 weeks 4 days ago||The Sparty mantra and propaganda continues||
This incredible overreaction/embellishment to the press conference by every Michigan hater in the Detroit media is very telling. It's as if there was a talking points memo sent out to Valenti, Dery, Sharp, et al.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Just thought it was going too far||
Meyer claimed his own health issues, not some jackass on the radio.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Would everyone catching the comment pick up on that nuance?||
The PR angle is what I think the context was, but still irresponsible at best.

|28 weeks 1 day ago||Why can't the playoff be after the bowls?||
Wouldn't it be better to have the bowl games with the traditional conference tie-ins, then do the playoff selection? This would lend to further evaluation of the teams playing out of conference, and remove the bias somewhat.

On a football, done on purpose! The SEC can do anything!

I believe it was 1995; rain, followed by a drastic drop in temp turning everything to ice.
