I guess, but they also are likely wondering just what they'd have to offer the next school to compete with NIke. b/c whatever the +$X million they offered Michigan was not enough.

I don't think UA is "pumped" - they did allegedly get turned down by M while offering a bigger contract

On the other hand, taxonomic nomenclature has been almost completely revamped as biologists have learned more and more about the diversity of extant and extinct life -- it now seeks to describe the phylogeny of life (patterns of evolutionary descent), rather than simple similarity. Astronomical nomenclature could definitely use a similar update so that it reflects something real.
This is true. But that's what they essentially did by reclassifying Pluto- it's not just looks and size, it's about how it evolved to it's current state. The orbit (and a few other things) suggests it did not form like/with the rest of the solar system. Size, volcanic activity and current satellites are similarity classifications. Evidence of formation mechanisms describe Pluto's evolution to it's current state.

I thought we agreed to keep our relationship private justingoblue. I can't believe you wouldn't talk to me about this first.

no. it's not like UNC - which is easy to get into in state but less than 10% get in from OOS, IIRC,

the admissions officer who gave the talk I attended said the opposite. Place yourself in todays class and you'd be right there. Kind of like Babe Ruth being raised with today's nutrition and training regimens.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I attended a brief||
I attended a brief presentation from the office of Admissions about a month ago: due to population loss (or relativly low gain) the state isn't providing the best applicant pool. As a result, the %age of OOS student admittance has risen.
BTW, they also made it a point to hammer it in that the UofM would NEVER go private. I'm sure that's been a talking point for every talk an admissions officer gives. Seemed almost to belabor the point, IMO.
As an ASR living OOS, my communications from the admissions office has indicated that they are not excited to generate more applications unless they are from very compeditive students/schools. Any additional recruitment must be in a very targed manner to attract the best to apply.

when you reach such an advanced age as we do LSA, it's easy to start feeling blue when the Bdays roll by. Which is why we all chipped in to get you something to "perk you up."
Just make sure YOU answer the door next time the bell rings.

this is my plan as well- we are on a low mileage lease and if we come way under (very likely) and the worth is way more than the Residual value, then we will likely finance to buy and either keep it or flip it to get the equity.
Or, if they dealer/manuf offers a crazy lease returnee deal, I'd consider that.

assuming a radical change in the TV structure is 15 years away, I would think those 15-20 years of TV contract money the B10 will have earned would be worth the price of admission for Rutgers and Maryland. They are making money hand of fist and the contract gets redone in about a year doesn't it? That means it's going to go up once again. and likely one more time before the TV structure change.
