It's a starting point and important, but there is also much (or more) to be said for imparting VALUES rather than just a set of rules. Rules are just things to follow so you don't get in trouble. Values impart the, er, value of following those rules. Rules by themselves don'y make you a better person, they make you a rule follower, or someone who just tries to not get caught violating those rules.
|22 hours 48 min ago||@BlueBarron: These are||
These are rules. To call these things "core values" suggests that these are the things that represent what the organization is all about. When they think of Louisville football, should the first few things that come to mind be, "no guns, no drugs, and treat women respectfully?" That'd be like saying the first things that come to mind when you think of Wal-Mart should be "no stealing, no fighting with fellow employees, and no weapons."
A couple of examples...
Whole Foods' core values are:
Not "don't do drugs", "don't bring guns to work," and "don't steal from us."
The Michigan basketball team's core values are more succinct:
A core value is "Developing healthy minds, bodies, and spirits through discipline and hard work" and a rule supporting that might be "no alcohol, drugs, or smoking." A core value is "Being respected members of the community" and supporting rules might be "no weapons" and "treat women with respect." I think the "Integrity" core value covers everything on the Louisville and ohio state lists.
Strong and Meyer are really missing the boat here.

If you replace the 897 with another 981 (2011-2012 single year score), the 4 year average jumps to about 972 (give or take), which would put Michigan around 4th overall. Drop off the lower scores from 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 and replace with similar scores in the 980s and you're looking at a score in the top quartile of the conference. That's not bad.

|5 weeks 5 days ago||Mine||
TL;DR version: I grew up in Atlanta and applied to MIT, Columbia, Cornell, Michigan and GT (in order of preference). I was accepted to all except MIT. Somehow, I ended up choosing Michigan over the more prestigious Ivies.
Really long version:
I grew up in Atlanta, but knew I wanted to get out of state. I fancied myself a reasonably smart guy and just assumed I'd be getting into good schools, so I only applied to 5 schools. In order, from top to bottom choices - MIT, Columbia, Cornell, Michigan/Georgia Tech.
I actually received a scholarship offer from GT if I applied to and was accepted into their Textile Engineering program. Needless to say, I filled out the application one afternoon lying in front of the TV and was accepted within weeks. Tuition paid for, but still on the hook for books, room and board. Not that tuition was particularly expensive for in-staters at GT back in the mid-90s (it was once voted the top bang for the buck school or something). So that was one in the bag. If nothing else, I knew I was going to college SOMEWHERE.
My older sister ended up at Michigan in a journey not unlike mine, so that is where the motivation to apply there came from. She recommended that I send in my application as soon as rolling admissions opened, so I did. I believe I submitted the application in early September and found out I was accepted by mid-October. I know this because I scheduled a trip to visit my sister in AA after my acceptance, and it was the week of the 1993 Purdue game. Michigan was only 4-4 at that point, but pulled out the game in the 2nd half (first half was a bit of a snoozer, ending in a 10-10 tie, I believe). Anyway, I had a good time, but still didn't seriously consider it
My top choice was MIT. I thought I wanted to be an engineer (I'm not now), because it was either that, or lawyer or doctor. What else was an Asian kid to do, right? Anyway, I applied early entry and heard back in December that my application had been deferred. It was a long wait until April to hear I had finally been rejected.
Columbia was my clear #2, mainly because it was an Ivy and I really wanted to live in NY. I heard back in the spring that I had been accepted. However, my mom really put the kibosh on it. She was dead set against me moving to NYC, especially with all the outlandish horror stories she had heard about Harlem and crime and all that. No amount of arguing could change her mind, so that fell off my list and Michigan moved up another notch.
Cornell was my clear #3, so I visited my friend's older brother there in the spring. Of course, he was studying for MCATs and pretty much ignored me the entire time I was there. Thanks. Anyway, I was waitlisted in March or so, and I had to wait until last April - literally days before the deadline to confirm my enrollment somewhere - to hear that I was finally accepted. Of course, by that time, I was a bit soured on the Cornell experience. The campus was fine and school obviously great, but I had a horrible time there. There was nothing to do or see. It was also a GIANT pain getting there, as my PHL-ITH flight was cancelled and I had to fly into Elmyra and then get bussed to Ithica. Based on those experiences, I dropped them from consideration.
So now it was down to Michigan and GT.
The complicating factor - my mother had been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease the year before. When it came down to it, I was having a crisis about whether to leave home for myself, or stay home for my mom. I knew she'd be ok with me at Michigan b/c my sister was already there, but I also know she wanted me close by. She did try to bribe me with a NEW CAR! Ultimately, I felt I had to do what was best for me and selected Michigan. There was a lot of angst, prayer, and discussion over the decision to Go Blue, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.

maybe a little facetious, but it's also naive to assume recruiters don't use them as tools and additional data points.

So you can go driving around without your seatbelt, get into a car accident, and be seriously injured or even die, and it won't affect anyone else, right? Like your parents, siblings, friends, significant other, children, colleagues, etc. Or if one of your loved ones were in the same situation, I'm sure you'd just say, "Hey, his decision, doesn't affect me." Right?
The point is that there are many people affected when something like this happens. Of course some people are going to be resistant, not unlike trying to force NHL players to wear facemasks. Is it right to legislate? That's a separate question. I think it's worth a discussion, though.
(Also, affect, not effect)

The Peach Bowl was a HUGE event (and I'm so bummed Chick-Fil-A killed the name; couldn't have called it the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl?) and is one of the premier non-Alliance/BCS bowl games. Honestly, I think it's the corporate sponsored name that makes it seem not as impressive as it is. Also, the #3/4 ACC/SEC matchup was usually a really good game.
Dallas is kind of like Indianapolis in that respect. No real college football tradition, but a lotta space, good infrastructure, new development, $$$$, etc.

Possession went to Louisville, effectively killing WSU's chances at a comeback.
Officials are WAY too quick to call held balls. Make a rule that opposing players need to have their hands on the ball for at least 1-2 seconds before blowing the whistle. They've been notoriously inconsistent calling this.

Assuming we win Saturday, I'll be looking for a bar in Manhattan to watch the game. I'm staying downtown, but looks like Union Square is the place to be. Any comment on which bar is better - Brother Jimmy's or Professor Thom's? Foodwise, I think I'd go Brother Jimmy's.

They're actually realigning the entire higher education system in NJ based on the Christie report (that's what they're calling it, anyway) which was realeased about a year ago. The UMDNJ folks (and I'm sure others) were on pins and needles until this thing came out, and not just a little angst over taking what is their flagship school (RWJ Med School) and giving it to Rutgers.

then you've got Stanford much better in the spring sports, with men's volleyball, m-w golf, w water polo, baseball. We have shots in rowing and softball. There's a reason stanford wins this thing every year.

I applied to 3 of those schools, was accepted to 2 of them.
To be honest, growing up in Atlanta, Michigan was my original 4th choice out of 5 schools to which I applied. Somehow, though, I ended up at the right place.
I would love it if my daughters could attend Michigan when they're college age, but the tuition will probably by $100k/year by then... =P

i would actually expound upon that last statement. When you're generally unhappy in a place, it's tough to stay focused and performing your best. This is why unhappy employees are less productive. Getting himself into an environment where he can thrive was probably the best thing for him.
And judging by the article, it wasn't necessarily a basketball thing with him, but more of a general mental/emotional thing with being either in Michigan or farther away from home or whatever.

although it was a while ago. My sister was a student from 92-96, so she got to see the Fab Five in action live her freshman year, and they actually showed the '93 Final Four and Championship games at Crisler. She was there for the final and related to me how crushed everyone was.
That said, if I were a student, that would be a pretty cool experience and I would totally go.

Ugly win. Also, funny that he says Trey Burke needs to avoid The 30 foot jumpers which trigger painful memories of the loss last season to Ohio. Of course, now his 30 foot jumpers will trigger joyful memories of the comeback win over Kansas.

You can't be serious?
|11 weeks 2 days ago||watch the on-court celebration||
if you haven't already. it's at the end of the ncaa.com replay of the game. It's pretty fun watching those guys cutting down the net. The first several guys got big pieces, then they started cutting smaller pieces where the net is tied up around the back of the rim. You can hear Hardaway telling everyone to get big pieces, even giving advice on where to unknot the net. And McGary is a trip, too. It's worth a look if you didn't see it already.

it seems like the issue is with all these new light weight fabrics they're developing and using. Something's gotta give when you go lighter and thinner, and it looks like that something is durability. We saw that in football season, and we're seeing it in basketball season, too. They need to get back to the drawing board on this.

it's not looking good for the 'cats at the moment, as LaSalle is up 15 at the start of the 2nd half.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||well||
all my first, er second, round misses so far i had losing in the round of 32. Except Ok St, which I had in the elite 8.
I at least had K-State beating Wisconsin in the next round, so that's still intact, if K-State beats LaSalle and Ole Miss.
NC State is on the ropes, but I had them losing in the next round, anyway.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||so||
every 12 seed won except akron. and i picked exactly 1 of them in my bracket (Cal over UNLV). Too bad VCU wasn't among them.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||geez||
screw you nc state and (f-ing) wisconsin... for bracket purposes, that is. I'm actually kinda glad wisco lost - not for the conference, but because they're wisconsin.

|12 weeks 4 days ago||honestly||
the only one of the bunch you mentioned I'm really worried about is LeVert. Spike has pretty decent handles, although he needs to be careful he doesn't get too aggressive and stuck or out of control. THJ's handles are much improved from last year. LeVert seems to think his ball handling is better than it is, and I was pretty disappointed in his performance last night. He is just a freshman and maybe he was over-excited about being in his first tourney game, so perhaps he'll calm down tomorrow.

i can totally see CU pulling the "upset" over Illinois. They're pretty underrated and actually would have beat Arizona were it not for horrible officiating at the end of the game.

ok st (who i had upsetting louisville in the elite 8 - doh!)
pitt (who i had losing to the zags in the next round)
new mexico (who i had losing to arizona in the next round)
on one of my brackets, my final 4 is Michigan, msu, osu, and Indiana, with Michigan beating Indiana in the final for the sweetest revenge.

Most seem to think they'll be ok, assuming they pull a walk-on scholarship, a few guys go pro, and 1-2 guys either transfer or don't receive a 5th year. I wouldn't call shenanigans just yet. It's not like they're obviuosly going to pull the scholarship of a former 3-4 star guy just so they can bring in the next big thing. Not renewing for a 5th year and pulling a walk-on's scholarship are on the up-and-up. Telling an unutilized guy that he's not going to get any PT, so he may want to think about transferring is a bit more negative, but not sleazy, but it's not gaming the system like Saban seems to be doing with the preponderance of medical hardships coming out of that program.

Every women's championship was won by a 1, 2, or 3 seed (since it started in 1982), and only once has a team seeded lower than 4 even made the final four. The men, on the other hand, have seen the 11 seed make the final four 3 times and an 8 seed make the championship game three times (8 seed 'Nova won it all in 1985). And if you recall 2011, 8 seed Butler took on 11 seed VCU in the final four.

Primary care focuses on general practice, like family practice, internal medicine and ped's. Specialties like ortho, ENT, any surgery, cardio, hem-onc, radiology are separate. IIRC, in the past, michigan state had tended to rate more highly than UM in primary care, although that's apparently no longer the case. Very different focuses.

|14 weeks 1 day ago||Missed free throws and bunnies||
Missed free throws were certainly frustrating, having missed 6 for the game, and that critical front end down the stretch.
The other thing that killed me was the missed layups. Jordan Morgan had at least 2 easy layups (not including the last second near tip-in), and McGary had another. Just make one of those and it's a different outcome.
No worries for penn state. I feel like Michigan will come out really fired up and take down penn state hard. Even Wisconsin, I feel like Michigan should take that comfortably.
I'm really looking forward to a potential semi-final rematch against IU. (and before anyone says it, yes, I'm looking ahead. No, it doesn't matter because I'm a fan.)
