|5 weeks 2 hours ago||Godspeed||
Having worked on a large website relaunch, I know what you're up against.
Thank you and godspeed.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Seriously what's going on this week?||
|6 weeks 12 sec ago||Oh, it'll mushroom||
You have criminal probes, lawsuits, and a commissioned investigation all going at once. Each of those will subpoena emails and documents that wind up in the public record. Add to that anything journalists dig up from FOIA or whistleblowers.
Even if nothing turns out to be Hollis' fault per se, I can't see trustees not demanding someone in the administration fall on the sword.
|6 weeks 4 hours ago||Kale futures||
I"m sure he has someone buying Kale futures to hedge the market.
|6 weeks 23 hours ago||I see||
Thanks. Sure looks that way. Quick googling showed that it's a misdemeanor in Mich. with a light penalty. The civil liability seems like it would be worse.
I'm also starting to wonder about Mark Hollis' job security. Not saying any of this reaches his level or is even expressly his fault (as far as I know), but if I'm an MSU trustee I might need someone to fall on their sword.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||This is probably just the start||
There are a lot of state and federal resources being brought to bear. Trust me, they WILL get to the bottom of this.
Question for MgoLawyers: According to civil court docs Klages dismissed complains of abuse from girls, possibly told them to not speak about it. Would Klages be a mandatory reporter according to the law? Should she be worried about a criminal case?
I've seen how investigations like this go and government attorneys are not afraid to liberally fling charges at people to get what they want.

... with cleats.
|9 weeks 23 hours ago||Belly Deli||
Not sure what category this would be in, but I'm addicted to the Pork Belly Bun (and to a lesser extent the Bulgogi Bun) at Belly Deli.
Spicy Pork Sammy ain't bad, either.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||It's really easy to be blocked by Henson||
I made an innocuous comment in a reply to one of his Tweets. Didn't think anything of it until a couple of hours later somebody quoted one of his Tweets and I couldn't see it. Yep, blocked.
First and only time.
That said, I don't completely doubt what he wrote here. I don't completely trust it, either.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||It's more than a "mistake"||
Grabbing someone's butt without their consent is more than a "mistake." It's a premeditated act that shows you feel entitled to violate someone's autonomy and molest them when you please. Being drunk is no excuse.
And, yes, I can say I never, not once, grabbed somebody's ass without their permission. I don't see this as a very high bar for behavior.
|25 weeks 5 hours ago||But what about the citrus crop?||
How will this affect the weather and crops in the orange-producing states? You have a report on this, yes?
|25 weeks 1 day ago||Yes, it was||
I had a very good view/angle on that from my seat and I was actually kind of shocked at the spot.
If it were a close game I would have . . . oh.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Dodgeball||
I went to elementary school in the late 70s and even then -- the pre-seatbelt, pre-bike helmet era -- headshots were illegal in dodgeball.
Although it just got you eliminated from that round, not sent to the school psychologist (which we didn't have.)

Wonder if anyone on the Board of Directors for Toys r Us will read this?
|2 years 14 weeks ago||You beat me to it.||
You beat me to it, my kraut-mick friend.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Moss is, in fact, Jewish||
Moss is often obnoxious, but I'm not sure you're aware he is, in in fact, Jewish. Which would make it pretty hard from him to be an anti-Semite.
Any jibes he makes come from a member of the tribe.

I thought Jane Coaston's column was moving and powerful.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Brandon job security||
Makes me wonder if DB should be a little concerned.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Yes!||
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Pagers||
Well, you can still bring pagers(!) in, so there's that.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||How about Omaha 8?||
I'll play you some Omaha 8, the high-low version.

I'll take Rivers in Egypt for $500, Alex.

As I recall, the prosecutor came out and said there was no evidence Ray was involved in the murder and dropped the murder charges based on that.
BUT, he did lie to police investigating a murder, which is obstruction of justice, and they certainly had the evidence to make that stick. Lewis then agreed to the plea -- he admitted he lied to the police and told the court what he knew about that night. I think his lawyer made a big mistake downplaying the significance of what Lewis did. If I recall properly, he said it was something akin to a speeding ticket, or something similarly minor.
That was dumb. Obstructing justice, espeically in a murder case, is a pretty serious crime. Having said that, I think Lewis should be in the Hall of Fame. The prosecutors and the judge were fine with the plea and you can't deny his greatness on the field.

Is that Snyder and Sharp to Hoke's immediate right?
A-list seats, or Seats of Shame, like having to sit in the first row right by the teacher?
|4 years 45 weeks ago||As to whom you may check . . .||
You may check the puck carrier, or the player who just had the puck ("finishing your check.") If two players are skating for the puck and both make body (not stick or hand) contact while neither has an advantage, that's considered a fair collision. If a player has a clear advantage to a loose puck and is impeded by the opposing player, that's interference.
|4 years 48 weeks ago||Well . . . bye||
EDIT: Sorry for lack of embed! Messed it up.
|5 years 9 weeks ago||Hmm||
The Victors is clear No. 1.
After that I always liked (just as songs, mind you!) Notre Dame's and "On Wisconsin." Pretty catchy.
My high school fight song was an original composition and was upbeat and catchy. Better than most college songs I hear.
|5 years 9 weeks ago||Dantonio from an eyewitness||
I spoke to a H.S. varsity FB coach who was there. I asked him what happened and if the media was making a bigger deal out of it than it was.
Not even close, he said. Dantonio "is an asshole," said this coach. He said Dantonio came in unprepared, seemingly unaware of what the purpose of the panel was. Either that or he mailed it in. Meanwhile, Hecklinski was very prepared, actually talked about recruiting and had a Powerpoint presentation. Dantonio was sitting there fuming and finally couldn't take it anymore, got up and bullied an assistant. An assistant coach, even from a rival program, isn't going to take on a head coach. You might need a job from him someday.
That's the amusing (for us) part. The slightly bad news is that he doesn't think this will really affect MSU recruiting in a negative way. Most coaches already know Dantonio is a tad abrasive. So it's not new to them.
This is from a H.S. coach who rarely sends players to Big Ten universities, so he has no real ties to either U-M or MSU.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||The Illini Highlight clip||
The game highlight clip from the Illini POV is positively North Korean. No mention of the score whatsoever at any point.
Whomever put that together should work here: http://www.kcna.co.jp/index-e.htm
