Look into Sennheiser brand. I'm sorry I don't have a more specific model, but I think Sennheisers are great value. They aren't as trendy looking, but the sound high quality for the price. My first pair were a $50 Sennheiser HD428 but this model is discontinued. They have a broad price range. I read a lot of reviews before buying most tech items (including amazon reviews, various tech blog reviews, etc) because you'll find a lot of people who are pretty knowledgeable.
I also liked the AudioTechnica ATH-M50, however, for some reason these were really tight on my head so I couldn't keep them. Best bet is order somewhere with free returns and try some for yourself!

Like most people I owned a lot of stuff from undergrad like the annual football shirts, 2 replica jerseys, M sweatpants, and Maize Rage shirts that I wore pretty much everyday as a student, but no longer. Funny you guys commented on how you'd get pissed and throw things around during games, I used to be extremely superstitious and if we were losing, I had to change my entire wardrobe. For the 2007 Rose Bowl against USC I think I changed 4 times. Needless to say, no combination of M gear helped us win that game.
Within the last 5 years or so, they started making women's apparel that wasn't an idiotic pink or baby blue with cap sleeves, so I bought a bunch of new stuff and the fit and variety makes wearing Michigan gear much more "trendy" and well put together. In general, though, I still don't wear sports apparel as often as I did when I was younger. I currently live in the south for grad school and love hearing a "Go Blue!" when I'm out wearing a M shirt. And it happens more than I expected. Makes me feel at home!

Ok? Good argument.
Look I've been a part of this little online community of Michigan & college football fans for about 10 years now and I never remember it being this full of immature and generally rude comments. There are plenty of females that frequent this board (myself included) and I don't think it's a lot to ask that we keep the conversations respectful and non-RCMB-like (hence why no bewb photos, no NSFW photos, no politics or religion policy). So to see someone rather politely criticizing the use of such language to be told to "Shut Up" is just disheartening and unnecessary.

And not every insult needs to be about genitals. I mean...can we get a little creative here? Also if being respectful to other board members is PC, I don't see why that'd be a bad thing. It's one of the main reasons why we don't talk religion and politics on here, yet comments like this slide constantly.

Ya Saban, it was so valueless that you and your fellow coaches lobbied to have them banned...
It was so valueless that Rashad Weaver obtained 7 additional power 5 offers after being offered by Michigan at the satellite camp and ended up at Pitt instead of playing FCS division football.
Yeah...zero value to anyone.

No. There's a limit to how many scholarships even the wealthiest schools can have. Only top tier talent is going to power 5 schools, and students more suited for lower levels are exposed to different schools and a chance to earn a scholarship in a lower division.

Mone was not going to Utah State, camps or not. You may be thinking of Utah, which is in the Pac 12 (i.e. not a small conference team).

He could be honest without completely deflecting responsibility. Because a QB's situation in the NFL isn't always perfect (good line play, receivers, etc), he could've said something along the lines of "I played for a program under sanctions that struggled, so I know how to play through adversity and have acquired mental toughness that other players may never have had to develop. This will make me an asset to teams hoping to develop a player with many raw tools to work with." If there's anything you learn when doing job or college admission interviews, it's to always turn your negative traits into a positive. He certainly failed at that and that might hurt him more than any on-field weaknesses. He needs a new agent.

Wut? Message boards were created for exactly this: ANGAR directed at people who will never see it and even if they did, they wouldn't care one bit. Sometimes people take this board too seriously, including "concern-posts" like this.

This is a neat fact that makes a lot of us on this board feel just that much older.

Except they'll spend half the time debating if Brady's patriots should have asterisks by their SBs due to a supposedly underinflated football. How do I know that? Bc they've been doing that for years already, despite how many records he breaks or game he wins. And even if they can't prove he's done anything wrong, they'll instead say how talented his teams have been or how great Bill Belichek is. Brady has become their favorite villain that also is too good to completely deny.

Let's just say I'd be surprised if a converted QB, even one with the size and athleticism of Gentry, would overtake a true TE with game experience who was buried behind a huge senior (AJ) and one of the best TEs in the nation (Butt). I wonder how that Rivals writer came to their conclusion/if they have any insider info about that? I hope he's not sniffing around bc I think he'll be a good one.

From most residents I have talked to (albeit in a different specialty), you should go where makes you/your family happy, particualrly when your options are as high class as those two institutions.They are both large, world renowned academic centers so I'm not sure what the major differences would be. As others have noted, SDN is the place to go for that nuanced info.
Common questions: Does he like the other residents and attendings in the program? Does he like the structure of the program (research, didactics, call, etc)? What at the requirements/shift lengths/etc? What are the perks of each program (salary, stipend for conferences, etc). Does one provide greater career advancement he chooses to go into a more subspecialized field? Also all the other personal questions about living in each city, family life, also play a role. I doubt he could go wrong regardless of where he goes. If this is for fellowship, this isn't his first rodeo and he probably knows what he's looking for already.

No one cares what Shaun King thinks. Shaun just brought to light accusations that were actually brought up in court documents, not just an opinion.

I know this was speculated, but it doesn't seem to be legitimate. If he can qualify for USC he can qualify for UM. Perhaps he just wanted to stay out west and liked USC.

I'll be honest I don't know how court documents work, so forgive my lack of knowledge. I just think you have to deny a lot of official statements and other written statements from a lot of people involved in her life and who were directly involved with UT during that time (including an eye-witness to the initial event) in order to see that the Mannings were not culpable in destroying an innocent person's career. He just gets to carry on as if nothing happened, who benefits financially and otherwise from a squeaky clean image, and she doesn't get that luxury.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||The Mannings, in them||
The Mannings, in them referring to her as vulgar and promiscuous, certainly went in that direction. To some in this thread, simply implying a woman doing her job in a men's locker room is asking for it. So I respectfully disagree with your statement.

I think despite it being framed in the plaintiff's view, there are enough objective components in the document that cannot be denied. Additionally, his actions cannot be denied (as far as him writing about her in his book, for example), and his trashing of her character despite numerous accounts of that being false. That's pretty damning even though it's one version of the case. The effect it has had on her life also speaks for itself. Even we are being completely unsympathetic to her during those events, if she did "ask for it," did it deserve everything after that? That in itself almost completely justifies characterizing him as a POS.

Had he just admitted to it to begin with, none of this would've been an issue. Instead he decided to wage war against this woman for years after she had the audacity to report his transgressions. Fuck him.

Because I know how to waste time really well, I read the entire 74 page document. Manning is a piece of human excrement for what he did to that woman. No amount of letters to the Carr family or ribbon cutting ceremonies will change that fact. Imagine working so hard your entire life to overcome barriers to pursue a career you love only for it to come crashing down by one vindictive, but powerful asshole.
