So I think I have seen this posted before, but graduate students get paid for their services. Right now I get fee remission and an additional salary as a graduate TA. We have a union (we are represented by the UAW). We can also tutor/intern/whatever on the side and accept money for it. Between teaching and research, we probably bring in more than our "salary" (which on its own is laughable, I would probably be better off in the fast food industry), but it is understood we are also receiving something of great value. Furthermore, different schools offer different amounts of money. And the "haves" for the most part get the best students. Finally, pay is loosely attached with performance. For example, a master’s student is less likely to get a TAship. Although they continue their fee remission, they don't get a salary for that quarter. We also went on strike this past year. Some of the biggest issues were class sizes and work load. I think people are thinking too much about how "Charles Woodson" would change the landscape of negotiations between the "union" and the NCAA. Most of the members would be people who are not going to get drafted and I think a union could really benefit them. There are a lot of imperfect things in this model, but I don't think it would turn this into a "semi-pro" system. (And knowing what it takes to survive on my "salary", I would still be able to view the athletes as college students.)

So after watching the game, I have a quick question that maybe someone more knowledgable about the game can answer (or I guess someone less knowledgable about the game could answer but I am not sure that would be helpful). Magnuson had a decent game at tackle. If we need to run that formation with Lewan and Schofield on the same side, why not put Magnuson on the other side? Since the bubble is not a possibility because it is well known by some coaches to be the dumbest play ever, at least with mags you could throw a quick slant or something without getting DG destroyed.

There is a rumor that there have been offers extended to Teddy Ruxpin and H.R. Pufnstuf for positions as offensive and defensive coordinators.

So I know this is not the correct string to post this, but I saw some info on Turner on this site. http://gobluemichiganwolverine.blogspot.com/
I really want some feed back, does this mean he is good to go. Has anybody verified this.

I am going to be in New York City for the weekend and need to find a good bar to watch the game. It would be preferable to watch close to where I am staying (Midtown- 28th and Madison), but I would also like to avoid watching the game with a bunch of investment banking asses.
