Seems like he has a really educated family.
Story on his dad:
|22 hours 38 min ago||I think we're actually trying||
I think we're actually trying to take two more WRs (in addition to Hawkins). Mitchell and Stewart were the two we were trying to get with Hawkins, but I think Stewart is leaning towards Stanford (his dream school). Therefore, we are prioritizing Mitchell, and instead of Stewart, we are looking at Corley, Pie Young, etc.
|22 hours 38 min ago||No. He already refuted that||
No. He already refuted that yesterday. Peters is solidly Michigan.
|22 hours 49 min ago||We talked about Pie Young in||
We talked about Pie Young in the comments on June 30. Someone even put up a great Simpsons graphic as well.

Just 18. 19 is away for that one. Typo.
|1 day 3 hours ago||Don't jinx it WD. I was at||
Don't jinx it WD. I was at the game last year and it still gives me nightmares. Embarrassing. *shudder*
|1 day 3 hours ago||Exactly right! ONE OR TWO TOP||
ONE OR TWO TOP GAMES COST AS MUCH AS SEASON TIX. And we have those top games coming up in future schedules so you got to get in now! [FYI - I don't work for the Michigan Ticket Office, but I am a Michigan Homer. LOL]
2015: MSU; OSU
2016 Wisconsin; Penn State
2017: MSU; OSU
2018: Arkansas; Nebraska; Wisconsin; Penn State
2019: Arkansas; MSU; OSU
2020: Va Tech [Rest are TBD]

also... I've said it before, but:
Buy Low, Sell High
Buy Low, Sell High
Buy Low, Sell High
It's still low now so get in before you miss the Harbaugh Dynasty!!
|1 day 3 hours ago||The margins are huge on||
The margins are huge on top-end tickets though. I sold a few OSU tickets and they covered the rest of my tickets.
|1 day 3 hours ago||Current CHEAPEST Stubhub||
Current CHEAPEST Stubhub prices:
Oregon State - $84
UNLV - $47
BYU - $70
NW - $78
MSU - $167
RU - $42
OSU - $190
Total - $648
Season Ticket Price - $455 plus cheapest PSD ($75) = $530
Theoretical Savings from Season Tickets compared to CURRENT CHEAPEST SH Price = $118
|1 day 3 hours ago||I like Stubhub and it works||
I like Stubhub and it works very well with Michigan games because there is a lot of inventory. On the other hand, sometimes you try to go to a concert or a show and Stubhub is not very good because there is not much inventory and the prices are unrealistic.
|1 day 3 hours ago||If you want to sit in premium||
If you want to sit in premium seats, i.e., Victors or Valiant in a good row, then you'll pay through the nose if you buy through the secondary market. Season tickets can help protect you against that, especially if our team starts to perform well again.
|5 days 2 hours ago||We went from Pro-Style to||
We went from Pro-Style to Spread then back to Pro-Style. That was 7 years of experimenting and changing players, coaches, administration, etc. We finally have new leadership and we are staying true to the Pro-Style philosophy. We have what we need now in terms of resources, leadership and stability. It's only a short time until we're on top again. I actually think this year we might underperform a bit because we have a tougher out-of-conference schedule, but I think we will have a really nice season in 2016 and 2017 with guys who have been learning under Harbaugh's staff for a few years.

|6 days 1 hour ago||And for someone who is so||
And for someone who is so concerned about Pipkins that you have to mention him in a totally unrelated post, the least you can do is spell his name right.
|6 days 1 hour ago||The guy has had numerous||
The guy has had numerous serious injuries. You don't need to read his health records to know that. He's had 3 concussions. If I were him, I'd be concerned about my health. Harbaugh told him that he shouldn't play football in the short term OR the long term. That's coming from a guy that loves football.
You can believe whatever conspiracy theories you want, but the facts are the facts and the Michigan doctors gave their medical opinion. I have no idea what type of doctors they employ at Lubbock, but for Pipkin's sake, I hope they are qualified and cautious in the advice they give the young man.
|6 days 2 hours ago||Why are you even bringing up||
Why are you even bringing up Pipkins? That's totally different. The guy wasn't medically fit to play and he thought otherwise. That was a difference of opinion.
Heitzman is not even saying he's disgruntled. He's just saying that he didn't want to have to try out again so he took his degree and went to pursue a master's degree elsewhere. Win win.
|6 days 2 hours ago||Come on Magnus. For a guy||
Come on Magnus. For a guy who gets revenue from those same fans. Don't bite the hand that feeds you!
|6 days 3 hours ago||He's 2016 class (meaning he||
He's 2016 class (meaning he won't start playing until the Fall of 2016); therefore, he won't be eligible for the draft until the 2017 draft.
|6 days 4 hours ago||Yea, he was filling in for||
Yea, he was filling in for Jake. In addition, now that Ty Wheatley Jr is competing for the same spot. It kind of tells you that maybe Keith thought the spot would be crowded.
|6 days 4 hours ago||I don't think it should have||
I don't think it should have been a surprise though. Harbaugh loves competition and he wants competition every day. He tells everyone that you have to take another man's job. Nothing is given based on seniority.
|6 days 4 hours ago||Makes sense that you have to||
Makes sense that you have to try out for a spot. In particular, these guys have already gotten their degree so they have flexibility to step down a level in order to get more playing time.

This was announced like a month ago.
|1 week 1 hour ago||I grew up on the east coast||
I grew up on the east coast and they were not "huge". For most kids, it was Ivy or bust.
|1 week 1 hour ago||25% of the Methodology is||
25% of the Methodology is "Student Debt". So basically, this is a list of where you can find students with wealthy parents who can pay the tuition in one lump sum!
Another 32.5% is "Post-Graduate Success". Another category identifying schools with wealthy kids who are able to find nice hedge fund jobs w/ family friends.
|1 week 1 day ago||At this point, I'm not even||
At this point, I'm not even worried about recruiting anymore. I just want to start off 4-0 with out-of-conference games, then beat MSU and/or OSU. Also beat Rutgers and Penn State by 5 touchdowns. If that happens, then everything will fall into place.
|1 week 4 days ago||No, per Pip's comments, Mich||
No, per Pip's comments, Mich coaches told him they don't think it's in his interest to play football in the short term OR THE LONG TERM. Therefore, if that is the collective viewpoint from the Michigan coaches and physicians, then I would assume his playing career at Michigan was finished.

And every kid finishes in first place... sigh.

well, then i'd rather go to UH.

Ivies give out full financial aid minus family's EFC. If he needs money, he'll get every dime that he can't afford covered by any of the Ivies.
