Article also says that the patio door was pried open, so it could have been both - he could have gone in AND out through the balcony.
|18 hours 25 sec ago||when I was in high school||
I thought the ACT was like a fake SAT. I wonder how I'd do on either test if I took them both now, as I approach the big 4-0...
|1 day 9 hours ago||Although I agree with your larger point||
You are factually wrong on so many counts. Minnesota plays at TCF Bank Stadium.
As for being named for the schools, Camp Randall, Memorial Stadium(s), Beaver Stadium, Kinnick Stadium, Ross-Ade Stadium, and Byrd Stadium. Only Michigan and osu have stadiums named for the schools (or state). Msu's is named for the mascot.

The other thing that got me is why he didn't just yell down to someone else by the pool to rescue the kid. Was everyone else inside or something?

The pink thing is so annoying...

I wouldn't mind me another BJ Askew-type player.

Prefer grass, for sure, but I have to say that from a maintenance perspective, this new generation of artificial turf is really impressive. Other than the annoying rubber pellets, it drains so well and can be made so it's not hard like the old astroturf (basically a carpet on top of cement) - a bit more "rebound" like a rubber track, although it's still not pleasant to crash on.
I'm interested in the grass-turf hybrid in use at Mile High and Lambeau. Looks very interesting.

In the "classic" maps, you identify and invite specific individuals as collaborators. Given that the map indicates only 2 collaborators, that means nobody else will be able to edit the map.

technically not feral, as that assumes a domesticated animal that has gone back to live in the wild (e.g., the "wild" horses that roam the plains, or many "wild" boars that roam the southeast). Wildcats were always truly wild, never having been domesticated.

have you tried contacting the OKC spirit group?

Today Show, not Good Morning America. Great segment. Actually almost did shed a tear. Amazing what he's endured. Truly an "uncommon man."

An alumnus/alumna is someone who graduated from or attended an educational institution. One need not have graduated in order to be considered an alumnus/alumna.

Did Christopher Polyblend design these?
|1 week 1 day ago||agree||
I wouldn't expect to see someone who is booted from the University or one of its teams be able to take advantage of this benefit.

Maroon + Gold = Copper, duh.
Or, maybe it's a nod to the fact that AZ is the top copper-producing state in the union?

You gotta love the ironic names. Also can't go without the stunningly appropriate names, like QB Chuck Long.

I've been on the field once, and still have a picture of it somewhere. I was in the late orientiation before freshman year, which basically meant that I got on campus about a week early to do my orientation. My future best man was also in that group, and one of the things we got to do was run around the field in Michigan Stadium. Our orientation leaders even brought a football for us to toss around. Pretty dang awesome.
Very jealous of your movie night! Sounds like a blast!

On the one hand, who wants to relive or even hear about all that stuff? On the other hand, we can't have a losing record to those guys!
|1 week 6 days ago||I think you're misreading the perspective||
Nobody is saying it was ok for him to do that, least of all Brian. I think what he IS saying is that he sympathizes with the difficulty of not making a bad decision in the heat of the moment, and that York's upbringing probably didn't do him any favors in that department. How wrong his actions were is blatantly obvious - nobody is arguing that.
|1 week 6 days ago||They aren't mutually||
They aren't mutually exclusive. Assuming (for the sake of argument) that York is allowed to remain on school, but on probation and basically forced a redshirt and limited participation in football activities does not mean that the interests of the other student are not being served. I would assume the kid has insurance, or will otherwise be taken care of medically and academically if he has to miss a semester.

Ryan Stiles. I met Greg Proops (on WLIIA and also the voice of Bob the Builder) at a tiny cafe late one night in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood. Cool guy.

It doesn't necessarily follow that expulsion is the only possible outcome for physical violence, as the poster above suggests. It is ONE potential outcome, based on internal University policy. Both internal University and external police investigations will take place and, I'm sure, the appropriate punishment meted out, whether that's expulsion, separation of contact from the University or certain areas/activities, or suspension. Honestly can't see anything less for what appears pretty blatant. You can even see him start to wind up a few moments before hitting the guy.

recognition of sarcastic indignation clearly not a core competency of this board...

"these are the biggest public schools in the State of Michigan."
|2 weeks 1 day ago||this argument makes sense to me||
In fact, it would be pretty darn sweet to see Michigan vs. Wisconsin or Minnesota at Soldier Field. Makes sense as a geographic middle ground with the novelty of playing in a cold-weather outdoor NFL stadium in February.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Exactly||
Catering to rich alumni and getting the "brand" out there. This makes significantly more sense than Michigan vs. Alabama in Texas.

A third of the MAC has offered Falcon, but not Bowling Green. Cumong mang!!!

best bet might be to take the red line down to addison and walk over to Rockit (wrigleyville) on Clark. That's a pretty easy ride and you'll probably want a CTA Upass to get around anyway.
