|7 weeks 6 days ago||Enjoy the two year vacation :)||
I was admitted years ago off the wait list the week before classes began.
As hard as you might work, just remember the law school students are working 2X as hard (I had room mates there).
And there are only two grades at the end of b-school: job or no job, so enjoy the experience.

...For my httv over the photobomb T
Go Softball, crush all before you!
I enjoyed watching last nights game on the bar TV in downtown Columbus OH. Even the NUTZ were happy to see a B1G team beat Bama.
P.S. Happy Friday Happy Hour :)

I know one person (not me) who quit their lucrative Wall Street job to spend a few tours in Iraq. Unless you served, don't be lol'ing at those who did.
Fact is a very small percentage of our nation has now served in the military (not just Wall Street types) and far too many of us have become disconnected from their sacrific in war and peacetime.
I'm glad I did my five years in the Navy, but my time was easy compared to the OP and all those who served in combat - thanks to all the MGoVeterns out there.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||Question had to be asked...||
... and is now answered
I've downvoted myself in self-flagellation
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Rotvig in 1994 - represent!||
I always felt like they let us get away with more in Bursely because they knew it sucked to be stuck there as a freshman.
Favorite memories were the keg parties we would throw.
|27 weeks 3 hours ago||Fits the Pattern (TM)||
This is the young man who's father knew Hoke from way back. I live in his home town and can relate that the word on the street here has him as a high character young man and good student in a very competitive school system.
I'd love to see him in Maize & Blue.
With offers like this, I think 'The Pattern' meme is carrying over from the last staff to this one.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||I used to love those old recruiting tags...||
... welcome back Eduardo.
Good thing there will not be many of those under HARBAUGH!
|30 weeks 4 days ago||Don't sleep on Wilton||
If his accuracy is better than Shane's (which was nothing to write home about last year), he could ascend to the top of the depth chart pretty quickly.
|30 weeks 6 days ago||Wishing||
Peace, Joy and Harbaugh to all of you
|31 weeks 1 hour ago||My head will Assplode||
If all these rumors come true..
Nike for Uniforms without the Z
|32 weeks 6 days ago||Perfect picture||
The picture in the OP is absolutely spot on.... the fact it comes from a former player makes it even funnier.
... but I still want JH more than Porkchops and Applesauce..
|33 weeks 6 days ago||Schiano is more than a writer's rumor||
I've posted this before, but it bears repeating that a reputable source I know indicated that Schiano is lobbying for the job behind the scenes. This does not mean we should want him, but this approach seemed to work for the last guy.
There is definitely something to this rumor.
|34 weeks 22 hours ago||Thanks for being a class act...||
.... sorry that the product on the field did not embody the excellence which Michigan stands for.
I hope you have as much success in your next stop as our last coach has found...
... but I hope we have more success.

|35 weeks 1 day ago||Schiano||
I have it from good sources that Schiano is expressing interest in the UM job via back-channels... I'm not ready to #BKFinest this, but I trust my source.
In many ways Schiano makes sense as a Plan B, he was close to taking the job a few years ago and would appear to bring the attention to detail and discpline which we have been lacking and which this site expressed as hallmarks of a 'michigan man'... the jury is out on the innovation part.
While his NFL stint did not go well, neither did Nick Saban's, Pete Carrol's (first time), or Steve Spurrier's time in the NFL. His success the last few years at Rutgers suggests that he can recruit well in Florida (from his time at Miami -YTM) and can coach-up talent.
His defensive expertise would likely build upon the momentum of the current staff, and depending on who his OC would be, we should see a progression in pro-style offense.
Dont' get me wrong... I'll take any Harbaugh over Schiano.... but as a Plan B, we could do a lot worse.
|35 weeks 3 days ago||2014||
Remember when the meme on the board was how bad 2013 was and how 2014 was going to be so great?
Wash, rinse, repeat
Still... Beat Ohio State!
|38 weeks 2 days ago||Saban||
Saban's stone has not rolled in a while.
Let's get Jim back on campus and see what happens
|38 weeks 4 days ago||Caused by MGoMeltDowns||
Of either the nuclear or non-nuclear kind.
|38 weeks 5 days ago||Would be better if we were happy about actually winning||
... But maybe this is a start.
|44 weeks 5 days ago||Aero 100||
It's in honor of the 100th anniversary of Michigan's Aero Eng program... The oldest undergrad aero program in the country
/ yup I'm an alum despite my username.
|49 weeks 3 days ago||All teams have their cycles||
I have not seen this discussed here, but ESPN had an article a few weeks back about the relative experience of the B1G. Indiana was tops, we were mid-pack and both MSU and OSU were toward the bottom in terms of experience.
Being on the road makes both games harder, but OSU without Braxton would seem a highly winnable matchup.
|50 weeks 18 hours ago||Great work OP!||
Nice to get some broader sports coverage.
Welcome to the good guys Jonathan and company.
|50 weeks 6 days ago||The bell tolls||
I guess the revolution on the MGoBoard is over, and joy lost.
Alas poor Yorick!... Where be your jibes now?
|50 weeks 6 days ago||Where's Kate?||
Despite a string of good news there seems to be a severe lack of Kate on the board recently. What gives?
Brian Cole ----> definitely Kate worthy ( a top instate kid choosing the good guys over MSU)
Mike Weber ----> yup yup!
Duncan Robinson ----> maybe, can't underestimate the power of Crazy Subs
Adam Schnepp ----> well, let's not get carried away

The hornets unis were designed by MJ's branch of Nike, but will still be made by Adidas as the official nba uni maker.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Ron Jeremey*||
... raises his eyebrow at your comment
* I probably misspelled his name.
Meant as reply for comment way up in the thread.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||that was my plan...||
... my third was due right in the middle of March Madness, but he arrived a month early.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Fully agree on vaccines being essential...||
... but I'm not ready to rule out all environmental factors:
Maybe this link is co-incidental rather than causal, I don't know, but I won't rule it out yet.
Perhaps as a preventative measure we should all embrace the cleanest and safest form of power generation - nuclear :)
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Sad to see North Hall go...||
... but the Kinesiology building seems like a fitting substitute based on its outside fascade.
I wonder where they will do the haunted house.
