|3 weeks 3 days ago||Thank goodness||
that we didn't have email back when I was in a sorority. We had to do rants like this face to face. And while it did lead to a lot of tears (especially in Greek Week, when you weren't trying enough, perky enough, etc..) we don't have long term evidence.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Another thought||
you could speak to someone within the Athletic Department and see if they have a way for you to distribute the information (I would guess not b/c of the affiliation with Mott and Special Olympics), but you never know. If I recall correctly, only certain entrances are open for the spring game and you can at least get that information so any friends/colleagues you have out at the game can be positioned in the right spot for the most people/exposure.
|6 weeks 24 min ago||Great idea!||
I think at the corner of Stadium and Main would be good - a lot of people go by there. Also, you may want to get in touch with the annarbor.com sports people because they could put an article in about what you are doing and (maybe) get more exposure (or at least a different crowd than hangs out here).
Also, it was fun meeting you at the Women's Football Academy last year and wish you the best of luck!
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I wonder||
if he had an epidural hematoma. You get a lucid period with that. That's what happened to Natasha Richardson after a ski accident. I know Caleb Moore was wearing a helmet, but is it enough protection against a snowmobile crashing on your head?
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Surprised||
We have been going to games all season and there have been empty seats, so I am surprised you are having trouble getting tickets (especially since they haven't been playing well).
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Nasty email campaign||
So I sent an unhappy email to Dave Bradon, Chrissi Rawak, Pres. Coleman and Denise Illitch. Those were the emails I could find. Here they are if you want to send an email, too:
I hope our protests work! But, sadly, I think they won't.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Silly me||
I should have looked back up at your post again! You tricked me by putting it from lowest to highest instead of highest to lowest!
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Here is the breakdown||
of current ticket holders, per the Annual Giving Guide:
Top 250 individuals: 2,028.49 points
Top 1%: 1,365.81
Top 5%: 326.65
Top 10%: 174.67
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Yes, it is money.||
The more money you give, the more points you get. These changes give alums/athletes an advantage, but if you have enough dollars, you get as many points as you want. All tickets have the same face value, but the question is whether there is a Premium Seat Donation attached to said seat. You need points to qualify to get the seats with the high PSDs. Of course, once you get the really good seats, they have a really high PSD and you keep getting a lot more points just to renew the PSD.
The points also get you some "extra" things, like parking at football games. The more points, the better the parking. You also get invited to some other events, like a brunch before a FB practice before the Alabama game.

How about a heaping helpful of Maurice Clarett?

You're right, we're all just dudes in our parent's basement wearing underpants. And sometimes not even that.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||I like||
how it took until he was naked, ranting, yelling, crying and pulling a dollar out of his wallet for thm to realize that the professor had "completely lost it". So if he had left the money in his wallet you would have thought it was ok?

that cats are better than dogs.
Disclaimer: I don't actually have a cat or a dog, but this is funny.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||Did they raise the scoreboard?||
It will be interesting to see if they raised it now that they have suites that might want a view from up high.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||Weren't they aluminum before?||
We have season tix and I recall sitting on cold metal all these years. I always plop my coat on the seat to protect against butt chill.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||I can't remember how much!!!||
At first I thought it was $500 to attend, but then I remembered it was less than that and you have fundraising goals to set. I set mine at $500 - which seems to be the only number that sticks in my head. I think it was around $100-125. I met almost all the players, all the coaches and had a great time. I really am enjoying this season more than before (and I really enjoyed it before). Now when I am watching the games I'm thinking stuff like, "Wow, he did great, I can't believe I ate lunch with him!" I am always impressing my extended family with, "Oh yeah, I met ___ and he was cool. He was my running back/linebacker/D-line coach".
I will do it again next year, no doubt.

sweetwaters has the best hot ginger lemon tea. Soooooo delicious. I don't drink coffee, so I don't know about the rest.
|35 weeks 1 day ago||Nebraska again||
Totally just messed up a punt and let Ark. State recover the ball (they were the kicking team).
|35 weeks 1 day ago||Nebraska||
Reports on ESPN2 said that Bo Pelini left the game at half time in an ambulance. No diagnosis.
Also Martinez fumbles x2 and lets Arkansas state back in the game.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||Madison, Wi||
Has 2 roads, Hooker and Pleasure. they intersect. So you can say, "meet me at the corner of Hooker and Pleasure".
|35 weeks 5 days ago||as long as||
he brings the team! But it would be cool to get an insider's view of the football program. Sadly, they are not in the same class, probably not even the same school.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||A kid in kindergarten?!||
I am going to see if his child is in my child's class. If so, I will push not for "Bring your daughter to work day" but "Bring your daughter and her class and their parents to work day".
|35 weeks 6 days ago||Total drama!||
Fred wants Daphne back and she is not interested. Fred has a sad little teddy bear to go to for comfort and Daphne is out finding new love. There is a replacement girl named "Hot Dog Water" (not kidding - I asked the kids to confirm) to help solve mysteries.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||Just go||
It's 3 weeks, it won't happen, especially if there haven't been any problems with the pregnancy. Set her up with a nice spa day, mani/pedi (she's probably not able to reach her toes by now), massage. It will all be cool. She will call if there are problems/labor. But there won't be.
My husband went out of town to Rochester, NY in December 1 week before the 2nd child was due. I was really nervous that he would miss it because of a blizzard or something. It went fine. Baby came on due date and hubby was there.
So 1) Set up spa day 2) have arrangements for hospital transport 3) go to game.
|38 weeks 2 days ago||Hey dude,||
I just got off the beach and haven't had time to shower. Lay off.
|39 weeks 3 days ago||I'm going to go there...||
Look at the unit on that guy!
I would embed the skit, but I am not good with the interwebs. That skit was hilarious.
|41 weeks 2 days ago||Sponsors||
Get some sponsors for the CIL. I know there are businesses that would sponsor the liveblog - you could do something like "First quarter brought to you by Joe Schmo's House of Pies". Or even let members pay/donate $5-10 to supplement the sponsors.
Twitter - blah. I don't get what to do with the hashtag - isn't it what we used to call the pound sign?
|43 weeks 4 days ago||Tried to look up||
injury rates with onside kicks - came up with nada on a Google search. Does anyone have a link to real data? Not that it matters much as the rule is changed, but just curious.
|44 weeks 22 hours ago||That makes a lot of sense.||
Have them make the money but put it to a good use. The whole thing was about money so make the punishment about money. This might be more costly than the death penalty - with the death penalty they don't have to maintain the program, the facilities, etc. With this, they have to still run the program, host the games, travel to the games, etc but every red cent of profit goes to the victims.

isn't as fabulous as Jake Ryan's. If you see them up close, you will know that Jake's is much much more fabulous. He's not called Goldilocks for nothing.
