But you do lack the facts. A wealthy kid can afford to screw around in a major where a bootstrap kid cannot. You won't find so many art history majors with mechanics dads, but if your folks can pop for grad school someplace maybe you can swing art history.
And really what is meant by a "competitive" major - have you got anything other than your own prejudices to show that working class kids are not working as hard as you?
And you think sociology is easy? Not if you do it right.

This is a pet issue of mind as I came from regular folks and went to a school full of posh people. And that was back when posh was 6200 a year not 62000.

People who think the money is a non issue are less likely to have any. The premium is $120k you could invest in grad school. The NU option leaves you rolling in debt for years compared to the UM option
|2 days 14 hours ago||I agree||
Think of the extra 120 to Northwestern as money you would no longer have for grad school
|2 days 14 hours ago||Michigan is better in every way||
I used to be on the Northwestern faculty so I am pretty confident in saying that although it may be a bit "posher" than UM, on average UM is the better school.

You can tell the race of the shooter from listening to their gunshots? Do tell.

Dude it's not because folks are BLACK that they need remediation - it's because they've had a pisspoor education or they have learning disabilities or or or....

I'd say the high schools are better here than in South Lyon, if you are ambitious (sends lots of kids to elite schools), although this is likely to change eventually. I have a niece and nephew raising a family in South Lyon, they get more for their money in terms of real estate but less in terms of culture, walkable "town" vibe, etc.

Having sufficient capacity for the strongest surges would be like building a 250.000 seat Big House. It would be expensive, and Most of the time it would be an underutilized resource; and prevent us from making more important investments (coaching).

My husband thinks I am nuts and football is fascist, but my son and nephew are co-dependent.

Oh why are you giving him the airtime?

Piss on the media if you want. If he did it just for the story why doesn't it happen every time a player goes down in every game?

Tampering a product in a way that makes its ad claims fraudulent is a crime but what you describe is just Strategy. Why do you imagine it is illegal?

The buyouts happen because the candidate are risk-averse: you're taking a chance when you move, and if things don't work out, you'd be worse off. So you get a better quality candidate if you offer a buyout in the contract.

Every major position here (dean, president, etc.) has been done with the aid of a recruiting agency to handle logistics, help negotiate contracts, etc

I realized I bet the pollyanna on Minny-UM that Devin Gardner would not throw an interception then forgot about it.
Technically I won that bet. Because of poor Shane, Devin did not throw any interceptions.
However, I will pay up because, you know, lemons. Money goes to Keep Growing Detroit.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||I was asking that New Zealand chick||
I hear she's a long-time lurker here.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||That's a different question though.||
That's "when do we get a replacement," not "why can't we fire a coach as fast as other people fire THEIR coaches."

Just behind her back though ;-)
If the question can be extended to Detroit-area sports in general, we named our cat Princess Tayshaun

Harvard's endowment is in the billions I think; it would not substantially change its bank balance by adding "media money" (and yes, "insane" would be the word for media money directed at public interest in Ivy football).
Did you actually READ the article? It describes the change in Harvard athletics as being driven by the school's policy to offer free rides to EVERY student with a family income less than $60,000. This is not a device to buy athletes, it is offered to every single student with that income profile.
Yeah sure money corrupts; in this case, however, the money is being used to offer all kinds of amazing students an opportunity at a debt-free education. At the "big boy" schools the football players get this kind of deal but not the future physicists, teachers, novelists, etc.

Honest to pete, even if everyone agrees the guy can't leave fast enough, how can a poor "radio journalist" cover his minutes if he doesn't fabricate a controversy?
Someone has to be the idiot on sports chat shows or there's nothing to watch/listen to.

OP didn't say Malzone was going to turn us around the minute he arrived on campus; merely implied that we would like to have him around.
