fun to say, more fun to eat. Probably my second favorite thing from Canada after Nik.
French fries, beef gravy and cheese curd. Don't knock it till you try it

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

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
|34 weeks 6 days 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?
|1 year 15 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

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

the T3Media legal argument? Do they claim to represent the Big 10 Conference or whomever is the presumed TV rights owner to the games or are they just an agency contracted by YouTube to police videos for anyone using unoriginal content and block it?

|1 year 22 weeks ago||The real problem with GA||
Starting the wave. After touching the banner and the MMB taking the field, doing the wave is the best football tradition. It is the responsibility of the seniors to know when to start the wave; on defense when we're up 4 is NOT the time (looking at you red haired girl with brown northface and ugs).
Obviously, there are instances where the seniors and juniors sitting in front have sinned by starting the wave at inappropriate times but to now entrust freshman causes me to lose sleep at night.
Considering the RR years, the wave has not been seen in the Big House as often as it used to but I do believe one way to return the wrath of the AMSHG is to blaspheme by unknowning freshman starting the wave when your full attention should be on the field.

My only regret is that I received but one degree from this great institution. Congratulations on your defense, an incredible accomplishment indeed.
