|2 weeks 2 days ago||The mimes||
The mimes are actually Jabbawockeez, (Las Vegas based hip hop dance crew) not that it makes any more sense why they are in the UNLV football picture. They wear bucket hats, just part of their shtick, but they do resemble german war helmets.

|45 weeks 6 days ago||When was the last?||
Does anyone know when the last fan appreciation day was where the departent did something like this to add to the gameday experience? I can't think of anything beyond the "fan day" where you can wait in line for 4 hours to get a single autograph.

|1 year 6 weeks ago||Duffy's||
Duffy's on Division street is where I watched the football and basketball games when I lived in chicago. The crowd is like mid-20s mostly local fans but definitely some recent alumni as well (you can find them because they were the student fooball shirts from the years they were in school). It's standing room only for most games and they play The Victors on the bar sound system after every big Michigan play. Closest thing to being in the student section without being at the Big House. Also beer is pretty cheap and they have moderate selection.

Sometimes when you're on is a classic hype video. Also the "it's my time" one is really good though a bit older if i remember correctly

|1 year 8 weeks ago||Peppers is too strong||
I'm no doctor but after the OMG shirtless I'd be willing to bet Pepper's ACL is made of a material stronger than titanium and cannot be torn.

I guess technically you don't neet negative recruiting when your official visits are like the ones at Ole Miss, Clemson or the SEC officials Denard/Tate alluded to.
Also Neighborhood Scout says Columbia SC is only safer than 4% of cities nation wide, which is a slight step up from Detroit and right on par with Baltimore. Ol' Ball Coach be cray
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Apply Early!||
I worked in admissions for 2 years during my undergrad (2010-2012 so not that long ago) in the college of engineering. They have a policy that applies to the entire college. Every year there is a target number of students they want to bring into the class so when the application becomes available in July they draw a line in the sand of a certain GPA and ACT score and so on. They review applications as they come in and if you are above this line, you get accepted whether you are just above or well surpass these requirements.
There are 2 things to note: 1 your application doesn't get reviewed until your "application is complete" so make sure all your recommendation letters etc. are in ASAP and check your application status online often until it's deemed complete. 2 this policy of admitting all students above a given line will apply through about December 15. At that point they have filled at least 2/3 to 3/4 of the incoming class. If you apply after this date now Michigan becomes much more selective and really is taking only the best of the best until the final acceptance offers go out in March.
You have a good resume but Michigan saw a 250% increase in application rate when they switched to the common app. Applying early (completely done before the end of September) will improve your chances. If I had not applied early I may not have been accepted myself. Good luck and Go Blue!

Sure the white guy is the slow one that gets picked off. Not sure who let the prefered walk on long snapper get his hands on the #1 jersey, can we blame RR?
|2 years 16 weeks ago||New Nickname||
Being from the midwest I knew getting a degree from Michigan had a very strong reputation. It wasn't until I moved to New York that I heard a new nickname for Michigan that I really liked.
I'm positive I'm biased by my alma mater but unless your goal is to attent law school and work for the most exclusive law firm in NY I don't believe Harvard opens any door Michican can't.
edit: and Michigan's law school isn't shabby either

|2 years 18 weeks ago||Student Grumbles||
I've heard from friends still at U of I some discontent since they recently voted to help fund the renovations wthout knowing the name would be changed.
I wonder if this is akin to DB raising student ticket prices for football
