I really wish Michigan hired a grad assistant from Bowling Green State who is worth the equivalent of a free college education.
If it's less an than $4M then there's no Harbaugh which means no Jumpmam/Nike, no recruits, no preseason top 5. Years and Years down that road eventually gets you to No Michigan.

Upon further review. The game was in 1940 vs Michigan state college (MSC)

Hulu acts as a DVR for network shows that aren't added to Netflix or Amazon Prime. You can choose from a wide selection of shows from many networks (NBC, ABC, Comedy Central etc.) I have found it useful because I don't have cable. So if I want to watch Chicago Fire or my wife wants to watch Bachelor, we can watch the day after it airs. Hulu lacks in original series in comparison to Netflix, although there are a couple of decent shows.

I love to think about all the things that I want to do or should be doing but I mainly just sit on my ass and watch tv with an occasional round of golf or bike ride thrown in.

Any highlights against teams other than ones fielding 5 white dudes under 6 feet tall?

Was is it Michigan's compliance officer? Probably just being cautious.

Are there any left on mgoblue.com? Bought mine for $85. Likely located in the Michigan section.

I'll possibly have 2 available. Do you have a non-personal email you'd be willing to leave? I'll keep you mind.

Roku 2 and Chromecast. No difference in quality as far as I can tell even with the Roku directly hooked to Ethernet. Roku 2 has the added convenience of not having to stream through a phone.

Unless a team has a 4th starter, mid-week games are typically staff days regardless of who a team is playing. Friday and Saturday starters may throw an inning or two in replacement of their bullpen session for that week. Maybe Oakland has a different philosophy but I doubt they throw their best at great length just because they are playing Michigan.
Edit: Oakland started a guy that threw 13 innings all year. None of thier normal starters pitched. Michigan started Nutof.

Cable providers already started capping Internet usuage and charging extra for overage. Just got a notice in the mail from AT&T. It's just one of their manys ways they are trying to combat the amount of people dropping cable.
I wouldn't necessarily call it greedy. They are losing money and looking for ways to stay afloat.

Writing a Master's thesis on Willis Ward sure beats the hell out of writing about the effects of the startle response on the adaptation processes of the human motor control system.

Why Harbaughs? It's reasonable to think that Henry would have been drafted without Harbaugh.

I don't believe for one second that the money was for his mom's "light bill".
Fine, you think college athletes should be paid for their talent and the value they are worth to the University. Let's not sensationalize this issue by saying athletes break rules because mommy and daddy are broke.

In the 100-something games I've attended at Michigan Stadium in the first 29 years of my life, I can't recall there ever being a maize ring around the field. This must pre-date me or maybe I was to young to notice. Does anyone know how many seasons/games the maize existed?
Side note: I do always get a kick out of how much white clothing fans wore back in the day.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||The problem isn't as much||
The problem isn't as much with the debaters (although I can't stand either Stephen A. or Skip), as it is with the premise of the show. ESPN will just replace him with another douchebag, even if that person isn't in fact a douchebag, because the show requires douchebag commentators that spew off bullshit hot takes.
Make ESPN great again. Show games and highlights.

Sleep paralysis is the freakiest experience. When it happens, I seem to be somewhat conscious with eyes open but literally cannot move any part of my body. I try and try to move because I think someone is in the room attacking me or the room is caving in. I try to scream but nothing comes out. Eventually the paralysis begins to slowly fade. I start yelling my wife's name and hitting the bed. Then I'm awake.
It has occurred a handful of times, although none recently. For me, I think it is linked to stress and lack of sleep. Apparently sleep paralysis is fairly common. It occurs before someone hits a deep sleep. Usually minutes after someone closes their eyes.

1) part of the general student body's contribution to the recreation/athletic fund
2) acamedic scholarships specifically for student-athletes
3) compensation for facilities shared between the university and athletic department
4) a tax write-off
