Man, I just don't know. Athletes take full summer course loads which leaves them with only three classes per term. That's 12hrs of class per week and 4 hours of discussion section on average.

He coached at St Joseph high school in MI and turned them around from winless to being a perineal playoff contender. I expect him to do the same. Isn't a SJHS player on our recruiting radar?

That's true. I'm sure there are plenty within the readership that are struggling. What about having a MGoFoundation that the readers can donate toward a general fund and the staff can vote or even accept applications to fund serious issues with people close to the blog or michigan community?

How tragic. Speaking as a skier, it's easy to assume you're invincible or would only get injured on the slopes. It's terrible to hear about something so drastic happening from a day on the lake.

That one time I hit a golf ball within 3" of the pin was when I was looking like one the best on the pga tour.

Why do you keep posting this? We realize you're just a spartan trolling to get UM fans obsessed. Or maybe you're even the the guy on Twitter trying to get internet importance. Why am I even typing this?

Really? Arizona and Purdue above Vanderbilt? Very confusing rankings to me.

So, you offered $1,800 for a car that was advertised online for $1,600? Am I missing something? This seems like...poor negotiating.

Season/Episode? I'd love to go back and watch. I suppose I could google it but this whole World Wide Web thing is basically my mgoblog machine.

Yeah. Just saw UF would only be ranked behind UM, Northwestern, Illinois, and UW in the Big Ten. I do enjoy the jorts jokes though.

Agree. No politics rule so I will say that I would love to see John Oliver discuss the social security program.

Jenkins has been more productive than Avant over a similar tenure (9 years or so?). I don't necessarily disagree with the point you're making, just that there have been successful OSU skill players and Avant isn't exactly the gold standard for WRs. UM hasn't been great at keeping skill players in the league either. The RBs especially come to mind.

I think this is the preview of the season's trick play: Butt runs to the end zone and lays down.

Sigh. You're right, sadly. Rudock, a guy we didn't even have on the roster 6 months ago can win the starting job at Michigan but would squarely be OSUs 4th string. Just thinking that makes my brain hurt.

Costco has some pretty good deals on TVs that are Samsung or Sony. They stock a lot of Vizio but sometimes you can get a great deal on the bigger brands if they also include a manufacturer rebate.
I have had two Samsungs and they've been great. Go with the ultra slim LED and wall mount it with a slimline wall mount. Looks great.

Damn - you beat me with the Nike threads by 2 mins. Oh well. We can unify our hatred to promote change!

My current CFB hate distribution is 100% toward Nike threads on the board. I'm sure that'll change in the future to something more reasonable, like 70%.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||You're probably right for||
You're probably right for most cases. I'd bet that the majority of people that opt for the purchase price are way over mileage making it less value than the purchase price, but less costly than the fees to turn it in.
There's a breaking point where if you use significantly less mileage, it'll tip in your favor. I'm on pace to have about 15,000 miles on it at the end of the 3-year lease (~5k/yr) and my monthly payments and depreciation assumed 30,000 miles (10k/yr).
My best guess is I can get around low $30's or high $20's at least for a 3 year old fully loaded 2014 Grand Cherokee Overland with 15k total miles. But my purchase price is something like $24k. Chances are I just keep it because I don't want to lease again, like the car, and probably couldn't find anything better than that on the used market. But the lure to get $4-6k back may be tempting to finance then flip.
