"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.

I wouldn't have thought so.
You pick good coaches. You show the world that Michigan defines classiness. That must be very difficult because no one has done it since Don Canham.
If you're going to have a big ego, fine. Just keep it under wraps. All the narcissism just doesn't do it for me.

Some good suggestions here. I just bought my first Android gadget a couple of months ago.

To this day I remember and use many of the principles. The worst: accounting courses in the business school. Pay accountants.

... is a very slow killer. if you are 80 years old and were diagnosed only two years earlier you will likely die from some other cause. Prostate cancer is much more of a problem when you are diagnosed at 60.

I had a ton of fun. Never expected the Bo - Woody battles to be so historic. You could income average back then - so I averaged all my post-school income over the four years at Michigan. All the laws were better. I still have that SI magazine - along with all the Daily football articles from that season.

the articles written by BisB. A little less snarky (did I use that word right?) and he could write for any sports publication out there.

If you think about it, that's actually quite funny.

The key to getting the most out of this site is to absolutely never read the comments.

Generally, I am very content and comfortable when I find that I understand what the "blogosphere" is saying and I disagree with it.
Now I find I may agree. Something is terribly wrong - either with me or with the world.

Someday this team will play well on the road.
|45 weeks 1 day ago||Borges and Heiko||
I watch the videos and use Heiko’s transcripts to read the questions which I usually can’t hear.
It has been interesting to watch the way these coaches have adapted to these press conferences. Brady, Mattison, and especially Borges were originally very guarded in these situations. Brady and Mattison still go out of their way to answer in generalities. However, Borges now seems relaxed and sometimes really lets loose and talks football. This change seems to me to have corresponded with him warming up to Heiko.
I am sure that Borges couldn’t care less about what MGOBlog thinks, but I do think it’s possible that his relationship with Heiko may have changed his view of these press conferences.

the building with the shooting range. At least there was one back in the late 70's. There were NRA qualifications there and I vividly remember my girlfriend, who had never shot before, making Sharpshooter before I did.
|47 weeks 6 days ago||I found the same thing.||
After two very long phone calles to DirecTV I ended up with the same information you got. $140 for the season and see it on channel 793. Or, $25 to see it as a PPV.
Hopefully, ESPN3 will work since I have a computer on the TV. The ESPN3 website says I should get it. However, I never trust that. Seems a sporting event can be played in Mongolia and they find a reason to block me.

Regardless of what happened in the Akron game this should be a blowout. If not, then the expectations for this season change drastically.

The subsequent comments caused me to go back and read the (surprisingly meaningful) Sun Tzu quote.
I’m becoming a believer in this author.

I find the $2.5 million allocation for the golf facility interesting too.
I’ll probably get negged for telling this TRUE story (I really don’t understand this “flamebait” stuff. No one loves Michigan more than I do and I am never trying to provoke anything negative.) However, don’t underestimate the likelihood that the regents and the athletic administrators play at those facilities and that may have had an influence in those decisions. (Please note my use of the word “may.”)
As a very young Victors Club member in the early 80s I was at one of the meetings and Freider said he wanted to invite some recruits to the Notre Dame football game. However, he was having a hard time getting tickets. So the next day, wanting to help, I called the man in charge of the Victors Club at that time (not going to say his name), and told him I would donate two of my tickets for that purpose. He said that was fine.
Well, at the game I noticed a couple of older guys sitting in the seats. I asked them where they got the tickets. One said “my friend [the man I had called to arrange to donate the seats to] got them for me.” After some querying I find he ran the golf course.
So, I am not sure my donation helped the athletic department recruit, or got someone a better tee time. It was no big deal because I would have just given those seats to friends or customers anyway. The moral is that, if you are going to donate, make it money and send it through the proper channels. Another moral is that some of the administrators use the golf facilities and that appears to be import to them.

Once, as a junior, I was doing my laundry in a laundromat on Packard Street and in walks Newt Loken with a couple of gymnastics team members. They have the trampoline beds and are going to wash them. It was pretty late at night and Newt was still a bundle of energy. Always upbeat and smiling. Talking a lot. For some reason I vividly remember that.
At all of the homecoming games he led the all-male cheerleading squad. He had this goofy cheer where he would pull the cork off a big bottle and everyone would cheer. As soon as he put the cork in - silence. Somehow that was really funny.
He was part of THOSE days. Bo. Don Canham as AD. Robben Fleming as President. Even Rob Lytle; who was in one of my classes. All have passed away.
It was sure fun hating old Woody.
Those days were the awesome old days.

At Wayne State Jackson probably plays, and if he's at Ohio State he doesn’t play. At Wayne State he gets a Wayne State degree and at Ohio State he gets an Ohio State degree.
Seems to me he’s trading up on both counts.
