Is the 8th grade cutoff due to NCAA rules?
edit: I guess I should have read it more carefully as it states "Per Compliance regulations." There goes my idea of using the kids club as a front for impermissible benefits. Imagine the recruits we could land with free field hockey tickets?

Was his 2nd go around simply him walking in with the artistic renderings... saying "Nike, bitches!"... dropping the mic and walking out?

According to this:
Michigan’s existing third-party agreements can continue, as long as they are not purchased from competitors Under Armour, Adidas, Reebok and Puma.
Much of Michigan's hockey gear is ccm... a subsidiary of Reebok. Thus I'm assuming they will be moving to primarily Bauer, or maybe Warrior for their protective gear. Unsure how they handle skates/sticks... skates especially can be very tought for a player to move between brands/models, they all fit so differently.

President Schlissel also deserves some love. Comes in to a tough situation, everyone is worried he is going to diminish the importance of atheltics... "fires" Brandon... hits the home run with Hackett and allows him to bring our boy home.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||You forgot to add in the||
You forgot to add in the upfront $12 mil signing bonus... $12 + $76.8 + $80.2 = $169
Also, according to the article, the $169 is figured over 15 years not 11... so the $169 assumes Michigan signs the 4 year extension option at the end of year 11.

with regards to hockey. Nike left the hockey business in 2008 when they sold their susidiary, Bauer.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Is Michigan required to||
Is Michigan required to maintain a certain percentage of instate undergrads? I wonder what effect the decrease and stagnation of the Michigan population since the recession will have on the admission averages in the next decade.

Did we vacate the 58 football victories we have over OSU?

Shouldn't OMG Shirtless be in the title? I think he's earned it with the backflip kick.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||$58 million per year ($1||
$58 million per year ($1 million for every football victory over OSU) plus a stipulaiton that nike must add "cooler poopers" to the tag of every OSU jersey they make.

This is how I imagine the youtube video from Wolverine Devotee would go if Nike were to pull their offer.

1993, Michigan at Michigan State. Infamous Fab Five ass wipe game.

Michigan jorts for the never-nude crowd? I'm afraid Tobias Funke just go blue himself.

My question: When did RCMB swallow mgoblog?

Other thing to remember is the Tiger's game went 14 innings last night... and I doubt Harbaugh left before it was over. Combine little sleep with lazy questions (how many times does he have to answer why he chose to come to Michigan?) and that's the interview you are going to get.

Uwe Krupp? Ouch, I mean, the Stephen Weiss deal turned out pretty bad, but to put him in the same sentence as Krupp? That's rough.

Shouldn't those of us with joined by dates prior to 2010 be grandfathered in irrespective of mgopoints? I'm more of a listener than a talker and feel I've earned the right to call that gorgeous, greek god (Stamos) an assclown.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Here's your best bet: take||
Here's your best bet: take I94 East to Romulus and follow the signs to Metro Airport. Park your car, go in and purchase a plane ticket to Austin, TX. After arriving in Austin, rent a car and take TX-130 south to Lockhart, TX (about 30 miles.) Enjoy the mecca of BBQ: Blacks, Kreuz, Smittys. If you have time, you can also drive over to the Salt Lick or get lunch at Franklins in Austin.

I'll let Chris Rock explain:
"Here's the difference: Shaq is rich... the white man that signs his check is wealthy."
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I assure you...||
it won't be much better from 4-8pm. I've spent 8 years in this shit, even the middle of the night sucks this time of year.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Huge hockey fan...||
nothing more intense than the Stanley Cup Finals... so of course I'll be watching the softball game. Can't miss watching a Michigan team capture a National Championship. Plus the Blackhawks suck.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Need lax to expand...||
to some of the big schools in the west. I don't agree with the ESPN announcers that it's the small, non-football powers that need to spread this sport. I think it's the Texas, USC/UCLA's, Oregon's that really need to pick the sport up to start a western spread.

"Advice? DON'T GET MARRIED" ... could have ended it right there.

Why would Toronto want to rent him for a year? Are they not aware that he'll be taking over for Red in 2016-17?

thinking of what I eat, if I had to choose only one condiment, it'd be mustard...
hotdog or sausage: mustard
turkey sandwich: mustard
if I had to choose a specific mustard, this would probably be the best one I've ever had: https://www.zingermans.com/Product.aspx?ProductID=P-GER-BEE

I was out with strep a few weeks back for two days... probably could have come in, but thought it was best to stay home until the antibiotics had me non-contagiuous. I don't want to be patient zero that gets the office sick.
Fast forward to last week... a couple of guys come to work hacking and sneezing constantly. Pretty much the entire office has now been sick the past week with numerous people not coming in. If you're sick, stay the fuck home.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||Probably not a moot point as||
Probably not a moot point as the NCAA has a limit of 12 scholarships per school for division 1 softball. What's a softball roster, 30 players or so? Vast majority of nonrevenue sports only give partial scholarships, so the rest of her aid package was probably covered by the employee benefit.

Yes, kids who go the tech ed route generally don't take 4 years of math, science and English. Nothing wrong with learning a skilled trade to transition right into the workplace or a trade school.
