|3 days 13 hours ago||On AGNC, and all the others||
On AGNC, and all the others like it, I've found the 2/10 yr spread to be a very strong indicator of future performance. That and Fed funds are the two highest correlating indicators I've found for those types of investments.
|3 days 13 hours ago||It's interesting because the||
It's interesting because the snowball effect is greater by paying down the higher interest rate....the same $xxxxx monthly payment ends up paying the entire debt load faster as more and more goes towards principal.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Real estate can be a great||
Real estate can be a great investment if you are careful when you buy the propety. If you're handy at all it's a great move. Make sure you have your legal house in order and don't cheap out on insurance.....potentially look at a small umbrella policy to cover you for liability on top of your standard policy.
|3 days 14 hours ago||I disagree on the order of||
I disagree on the order of debt paydown.....you should pay down the highest interest rate debt first. Size of the loan doesn't matter....only what interest rate you pay and whether it's tax deductible (you'll want to pay those last assuming they aren't high interest rate loans).

I'm confused. It seems like we've taken on a bunch of QB's since Harbaugh got here....how are all of these guys going to fit and how many do we expect to transfer out of here?

|3 weeks 6 days ago||Gisele was his Ex.....I get||
Gisele was his Ex.....I get the feeling this is either a shout out to, or subtle dig, at Tommy Brady. Timing after SB seems interesting.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Chance favors the prepared||
Chance favors the prepared mind.....his work ethic and competitiveness was the perfect pairing for NE and they've both made the most of it. He'll of a career/life.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||What happened to the 4* guy||
What happened to the 4* guy who got shut out by Wisonsin? Seems a little bit sketchy but a concensus 4* is hard to completely overlook. Must have been a worse situation than previously thought.
Until proven otherwise, I in Harbs I trust.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Total cost?||
7 years, countless losses, snapped streaks and a civil war in the fan base for good measure.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||It's not miniscule when it||
It's not miniscule when it means the difference between throwing with grip vs no grip in cold weather. That is a pretty big advantage, IMO.
Sucks, I don't want Brady tarnished but every year they keep coming up with more ways to bend/break the rules. Of course the Seahawks do the same shit so I still want the Pats to win, just wish this stuff didn't have to be how they did it.

He rolled the dice and it came up craps....
|6 weeks 22 hours ago||I agree with this except I||
I agree with this except I would add Texas to your academic group. UT-Austin is a pretty good school with great weather and all the trappings that come along with it. If academics did not matter, I would look at ASU as well. Hell of a campus atmosphere.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||It's an optical||
It's an optical illusion....it's the pleats in the pants.....don't act like you're not impressed!
|6 weeks 4 days ago||How does Drevno effect Isaac||
How does Drevno effect Isaac as RB? Did they overlap for a year or just miss each other?
|6 weeks 5 days ago||So Braxton is leaving for||
So Braxton is leaving for sure, then, right? I mean if all three stay who gets the short straw?
1. The guy who won the NC after stepping in for the injured starter that got them all the way to the playoffs;
2. The guy who got them all the way to the playoffs after stepping in for the injured returning starter who was expected to be in the hunt for the Heisman; or
3. The Heisman hopeful returning starter who got injured before ever taking a snap in the 2014 season and has been out recovering an entire year.
Poor Urban and his tough decisions.....life really sucks for that guy.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Interesting.....in that case||
Interesting.....in that case is like to see Shane develop into ska QB we can use for a year or two and then hand off to Speight who would have a pretty big development advantage over other QBs...or maybe not. I guess I just don't want to see a 3rd QB get "hosed" becAuse previous staff couldn't develop a player to save their lives.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||So because Carr won the war||
So because Carr won the war his actions were right and just?
I guess History is written by the victors......

...but for a nice change of pace, it'll be the other guy feelin the pain!
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Why would anyone want help||
Why would anyone want help from the coach who was fired? From a NC winning staple of the program, absoultely. I doubt RR would have told Carr to stuff it had he offered to help navigate the waters. And from what we learned in 3 and out, Carr wasn't exactly helpful and potential actively undermined him at every turn.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I'm still conflicted about||
I'm still conflicted about LC. His tenure was frustrating because, yes, he did bring the NC, but he also wasted a ton of talent by being so so so so conservative. I have a feeling the offense displayed at the Cap One bowl would have gotten us one more NC had he been willing to do it earlier in Henne's career.
He also was responsible for the loss to App State, the worst in our programs history, and then did nothing to help the transition to RR. Certainly never acted like he has for Hoke or Harbaugh, who he also alienated at one time in the recent past.

Interesting to hear the comments about Lloyd helping and offering assistance....my how times change.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Add in The Defensive MVP and||
Add in The Defensive MVP and Rookie of the Year honors and heis 1st ballot lock.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||He's also getting paid 100%||
He's also getting paid 100% of his contract value despite massively failing here.....I wouldn't characterize him as being a pushover if he made the call to Harbaugh to smooth over concerns there. Especially considering how much he supposedly loves Michigan. If true, he should do what is best for Michigan, not what is best for himself.....that is the mark of a Michigan Man.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||I really hope that's true||
I really hope that's true and signs are encouraging....but why shit on RRod on our way to greatness. A lot of people on this board seem to take great pleasure in watching him fail and that attitude is what got us here in the first place.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||This team would kick our ass||
This team would kick our ass but he wasn't good enough for us. I hope you're still around in a few years when Arizona is what Oregon is right now....the arrogance with you is unbelievable.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||A young team filled with 2-3*||
A young team filled with 2-3* players being up and down from game to game? They've accomplished a lot more than any Michigan team for the last 3 years.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Looks like a young team||
Looks like a young team physically and mentally worn down from a long season...give them a year or two to mature and add better ranked depth and they'll do some damage.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||This is where a young QB is a||
This is where a young QB is a liability...seems very very indecisive.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||I'm curious why that would||
I'm curious why that would be, exactly? It seems that anyone who works directly with Peyton M will look great as a coach but what has he shown outside of that time to make you think he would be a good HC ... especially at Michigan?
