Great guy. And yes, a photographer.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||I can't believe no one has linked this yet||
Or maybe I'm scrolling too fast.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||There have always been more||
There have always been more women on this board than anyone suspects. Even in the Haloscan days.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Objection||
|2 years 19 weeks ago||If you are pouring one out for cfaller||
Doing so with banana pudding will make an awful mess.

elno went to Huron. The chimp is a rat!

Did not include an exhortation to hire the chimp.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Bravo||
|2 years 37 weeks ago||This is not the first time||
This is not the first time members of the wrestling team have been involved with molotov cocktails. There was an incident last summer as well. I'm not saying it was the same guys, but it was definitely wrestlers, and the AD was involved in the resolution.

He's booking charters that make them more likely to miss free throws? Or is it the hotels he books that do that?
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Volleyball season ended in December||
With Michigan in the Final Four. This looks like a match my family attended. Bunch of the basketball guys were there. All the freshman and THJ, iirc.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Thanks for sharing the info||
I had noticed two basketball players on crutches over near the Union last week and wondered what the deal is. Very disappointing to hear it was ACLs.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||But the issues -- long and short term -- are entirely different||
For professional athletes, they are going to be making an immense amount of money immediately -- when they are young and impulsive -- that will have to last them after their career ends. A ten year career in the NFL is long and then you have to live on that or find something else to do. There are going to be people looking to get a share from all side -- friends and family and "investors" and "financial advisors."
That's incredibly different than most of us who need to learn that we can't have everything we were raised with in our parents' house when we are first starting out, or how to account for the costs of adult life we took for granted living at home. (Assuming most of the readers are middle class and saw parents writing utility bills and hitting the credit union savings account for unexpected auto repairs.)

You can remotely manage Macs. They certainly do here at Michigan.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||He lives in Columbus||
That explains a lot.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||I've seen similar feed problems||
I had tags on a bunch of things I never looked at, let alone tagged, all in a row one evening. Database syncs going awry or something.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||His wife is younger, but not outrageously so||
The family was at a couple of Michigan baseball games last season.
|3 years 21 weeks ago||That Pioneer side of Stadium is fine.||
That is in fact probably your best bet to get to PiHi. Main will be a parking lot, and without the bridge, people are going to cross State on foot at Granger to walk through the field hockey field, which will block that up.
|3 years 21 weeks ago||People parked there for basketball||
The lights cycle for getting out of the stump of Stadium up to that parking lot so you aren't completely trapped. Much smaller crowd for basketball, of course.
|3 years 21 weeks ago||Closed for walking||
My daughter walks home from Pioneer and cannot use the bridge.
It looks like they are getting closer to done, as in there is actually a bridge deck instead of gaping space, so it may open for pedestrians before cars, but that is just my uninformed opinion without any sort of insider information.
|3 years 22 weeks ago||Seriously, delete to stop the violence||
Hoke's gonna kill Gant for this if it's true, and Gant's gonna kill his so-called friend.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Did they overlap at Michigan/CW?||
Might be just some historic personality clash issues.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Just as I suspected! Congrats||
Just as I suspected! Congrats to Sam!
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Pommel horse||
He's good at it, they need it, he's a shoo-in.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Add another Michigan Olympian||
Canadian women's basketball team qualified, so that means Krista Phillips gets added to the list.
|3 years 32 weeks ago||Because it sucks||
It is slanted toward the schools that invest heavily in the big name sports and don't have many "non-revenue" sports. I'm looking at you, SEC.
|3 years 32 weeks ago||As a U.Va. alum||
This is pretty much my assumption, especially as some of the board members are/have been involved with firms with an interest in for-profit online education endeavors.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Definitely European style||
My German mother ate that way (and all the relatives on that side of the family, not that I see them that often).
|3 years 34 weeks ago||His coach got fired||
Or rather, "came to a mutual decision to seek other opportunities." I can see where he would consider doing the same. Either way it's a crapshoot, so why not try something completely different.
I know he redshirted, so he may well be done with school. If not, although I know absolutely nothing about the Brosnahan family situation other than that they live near a couple of my colleagues, I am guessing another semester of tuition wouldn't break the bank. It's not as if baseball players get full scholarships anyway.
Kind of too bad because he was the pitcher my son decided was "his guy" last season.
