You got me. I googled and accidentally ended up on the Notre Dame College site, not the university of notre dame site. Mea culpa.

It's really the smokiness when you grill or even oven bake the avocados that is the attraction. One thing my wife does is crack an egg into half an avocado (yolk on one half, egg white on the other half) and pop it into the toaster oven. Avocado gets smoky, yolk gets runny, and white is almost a poached texture. I hate avocado and I love this.
This recipe sounds like a winner to me!

UM in-state tuition is about $13k a year. Notre Dame full year is about $26k. Nowhere near a $30k premium. In fact, ND is about $15k less than UM out of state tuition. Figure room, board, books, fees, etc. are a wash.
Northwestern is about $15k/quarter, with 3 quarters per year getting you to about $45k/year. Again, other stuff considered a wash.
I'd say cost is certainly a factor for the parents (and maybe the kid, depending on the loan situation). But a big factor, too, has to be the experience. All three are vastly different from each other in terms of culture, environment, and experience. If all three are relatively close in terms of desired major/program, weigh how much the school vs. cost matter.
College trips are most certainly in order, maybe even having a host for a night/weekend at each respective school. Make sure the kid and parents are prepared with questions of what they're looking for, aid available, etc.

Apparently, a player back in 1926 was mortally injured in a car accident returning home from an away game, and his final message to the coach was to tell the team to "bear down." That was the inspiration for the fight song and this phrase.

Did you take a look at the names of some of his lead recruiters from various schools?
Includes the fantastic "Steed Lobotzke"

Can we please stop ripping on the academics/jobs-post-graduation thing? The fact is that one can get a fine education at Rutgers, or any of the Big Ten schools, for that matter. Nobody is pretending that Rutgers is "better than Michigan in those regards," but it's still a good school.

Why are there so many of us who married U of I gals? I have a colleague who also is a UM grad with a U Illinois wife.

That's a pretty low bar, though (ESPECIALLY FOR A NEWSPAPER!), to get basic information correctly named and spelled.

may remember that Wisconsin actually recruited Navarre as a DE. Of course, he goes on to be one of the most prolific passers in Michigan history!

And yes, I am that guy. Your grammar is too good. The bad grammar is what makes it funny, and a meme in the first place. Here is the correct structure:
"All your <singular noun which should be plural> are belong to us."
Now, let's try an example with a group of bullies taking other kidss lunches:
"All your lunch are belong to us! Ha Ha!"
How about the grinch after he and his dog, max, steal all the presents from whoville?
"All your present are belong to us!"
Ok, one more. This is one where Harbaugh snake oils a bunch of great recruits from other schools:
"All your recruit are belong to us! HARBAUGH!"
See how easy that is? Alright, now you try it...

I'd say that most private universities offer this benefit, or at least a significant discount on tuition for spouses and children. Most public universities do not.
My father used to work on staff at the Emory Clinic (part of Emory University) for about 15 years. When he couldn't convince either my older sister or me to attend Emory (free tuition!), he quit and focused on his private practice.

How much of a difference is 2psi (per the article)? Anyone have a couple footballs properly inflated and underinflated to compare the difference? Is it noticeable/significant? What if it's raining, cold hands, gloves, etc.? Still noticeable?
Also, someone go outside and throw/catch those same balls. Any difference?
|1 week 1 day ago||I agree that it's certainly||
I agree that it's certainly disappointing, but your shock that anyone from the University could ever be involved in something like this is naive. People, especially with a little alcohol thrown in, can do some tremendously stupid things, no matter how smart or classy they may be otherwise.
|1 week 1 day ago||A couple of responses||
First, it's a maturity issue, mentally and emotionally. Some are more mature than others and make better decisions than others. This is the case whether you're talking about military, NFL, or corporate America.
Second, an 18-20 year old's body is not fully mature. I had a conversation with a US Navy pediatric ER doc in Hawaii once (didn't know the family, but our kids somehow started playing together, so we chatted). It seems the military is sending pediatric docs overseas to take care of the younger soldiers, as they've realized that their bodies are not fully mature and often need a different level of care and expertise than "regular" doctors can give. As a peds doc, he was deployed to the middle east and Afghanistan for that very reason.
Finally, my brother-in-law, a CAPT in the US Navy, will also tell you that the E-1 enlisted sailors really are just kids, for what it's worth.
Being physically able to go to war has nothing to do with whether or not someone is a "grown man" (whatever that ambiguous term really means).

Because no other team does anything shady at all to try to gain a competitive advantage, right? Only the Patriots?
According to Matt Bowen (former Iowa and NFL safety) in 2010, after the Broncos taping incident:
It happens everywhere. The sad thing about this article is that, aside from "Spygate" the best evidence Rosenberg has of cheating is a legal maneuver against the Raves and rumor/innuendo.

Ah, but you see, he's not reporting news in this instance, but writing an opinion column. Therefore, it's not subject to the same journalistic code as he would if he were actually reporting news in an objective manner. See, he can skirt the rules, too.

The crazy thing about his season is that he only got 12 carries in his first 3 games combined, and had 5 games this season with fewer than 10 carries. However, in those 5 games, he had 29 carries for 305 yards, at 10.5 yds per carry. Lest anyone think it came over the dregs, two of those games were against SCar and Clemson. He had over 100 yards in his last 7 games, including 156 yards and 7.4 ypc (!) against Florida, 144 yards and 7.6 ypc against Auburn, and 266 yards and 8.1 ypc against Louisville in the bowl game.
Had he played a full season as starter, he would've been over 2000 rushing yards at that pace and be mentioned in the same breath as Melvin Gordon and Ezekiel Elliott. As it is, I have to imagine he's an early front-runner for Heisman along with Elliott.

There is a difference.
And he never criticized Beilein or his staff, but said that there are probably some who negatively recruit. He's always been very complimentary of Beilein in the past, although I can think of a few programs for which he has no love lost (particularly the ones which take the really big recruits).
And as for making presumptions about overuse injuries, he never said "definitely" but did suggest that it was, yes. And then he gave another example of one of his own players. Whether he thinks it or not, I don't see how that statement in any way indicts Michigan's staff. You're looking for a fight where there isn't one. Get over it.
|1 week 2 days ago||Where are you quoting "wish"||
Where are you quoting "wish" from? The only time Izzo was quoted as using that word was in the following statement. You're clearly taking something way out of context.
"When you go through a bunch of injuries yourself, I wouldn't have wished this (on them), I am not happy."
