things go poorly

Yeah, I agree. The scary part for me on the defense is that our problems seem to be systemic. The University of Michigan cannont defend modern offenses with mobile QBs. This goes back at least to Donovan Mcnabb eating us alive. But of course, App. State did it and then Oregon made us look down right stupid the next week.
When we play a good mobile QB we have to out score them. I don't know. Maybe there isn't a fix for this problem, which is why college and pro offenses are moving that direction.

I agree, but I would add that it seems to me that our Athletic Department is a bloated, decrepit beached whale filled with people who have deemed themselves too good for outsiders. They treat people like crap, unless they can meet some BS standard of "Michiganess." They spend all their time talking about the past and what Michigan is. And now we've got a football program lead by big talk about the past and a Michigan potemkin village on the field.

Are you saying that the kid playing football for free deserves to be analyzed in the same manner as the adult offensive coordinator who is paid more to do his job than (I'm guessing) almost everyone who reads this blog?
Are you saying one backup player has as much of an effect on the offense as the offensive coordinator?
To answer your question. No I do not think it is unfair.
I also thing the leaders of any branch of the military deserve more in depth analysis than any one GI.
I also think the CEO of a company or the manager of a department deserves more in depth analysis than ony individual team member pushing paper.

Come on, everyone! You have to give Al credit. It's not easy to be the author of the worst RB performance in the history of Michigan football! It's not easy to call for your QB to spike the ball with the clock stopped on first down! It's not easy to come up with a way to not only tip your run plays, but also come up with a brilliant new way to also tell teams exactly where the run is going to go! These are innovations! This is the future of football!

Best part of that is that Gardner is looking at the sideline asking why.

No, it simply objectifies women by reducing their value to how attractive they are to men.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||No, I disagree. I don't want||
No, I disagree. I don't want to live in a society that lets workers kill themselves while employers hand them the opportunity. Just because someone is willing to do something, does not make it ok and absolve everyone around them of responsibility.
Given your "logic" the miners at the Upper Big Branch mine (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/10/us/10westvirginia.html?_r=0) that exploded killing everyone are the one's at fault because they continued to work there. The negligence of the company doesn't matter. They chose to continue working. They knew the dangers. It's their fault they died. Employeers can do anything they want. If an employee stays there, the employee has accepted all risk and it's the employee's fault if something bad happens to them. There is zero reponsibility on the part of the employer.
By your "logic" the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory tragedy (google it) was the fault of the stupid workers who worked there. They knew the doors were locked. They continued to work there, thus they killed themselves. The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory is the real victim here!

Are you really suggesting that the standard by which we should judge this is whether or not YOU can fathom what someone would need money for?
I'm shocked that you haven't be selected as supreme decider of what people need. This would solve a lot of the world's problems.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Actual Research||
Here is some actual research on the topic you might want to read: http://www.ncpanow.org/research?id=0024
In short, these guys are not getting even close to what they would on the open market, they live just above the poverty line, and end up owing money because the scholarship does not cover everything.
"- Duke basketball players were valued at $1,025,656 while living just $732 above the poverty line and a scholarship shortfall of $1,995."
Bottom line: They are giving a massive gift to the university by doing what they do.

Yeah, Pete Carroll has no experience with paying players, having spent so much time in the college game. I don't know what the Seahawks were thinking putting........ oh wait...
|2 years 28 weeks ago||The fallout after the Fab||
The fallout after the Fab Five era happend for one reason, hiring Brian Ellerbe. That was a monumentally poor decision.
We act as if schools never have NCAA investigations and sanctions. They do and they don't hurt the school one bit, if the school doesn't shoot itself in the foot. How much is the one year bowl ban going to hurt Ohio? Not one bit.
The fallout was our doing. Not Chris Webber's or Taylor's or Traylor's. It was Goss hiring a guy that had no buisness coaching high school kids, much less a major college program. Had we hired a competent coach the long years in the wilderness would not have happend. NCAA investigations don't have to distroy your program. I say that because the almost never do. What's Baylor ranked right now? Have they had any problems?
Brian Ellerbe (and Tom Goss' decision to hire him) did the damage.

Ask Barry Sanders if NFL guys can takle in space. Or if 6 NFL guys can takle in a phone booth.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||I've never read anything that||
I've never read anything that suggested Howard, King, and Jackson ever had anything to do with him. So I think the first answer is no.
Michigan can have all the contact it wants with Rose, Howard, King and Jackson.

Please end this farce. I personally would keep RR, but if Harbaugh is going to be our next coach, what the heck is he doing wasting his time with Stanford this month? I don't give a crap about Stanford their record or their bowl game. A Michigan Man cares about Michigan. If he is going to be coaching Michigan next season then it should start today.
Either way, end this, please.
Sincerely, your loyal fan,

They were tied at halftime of the UTEP game and then in the second half they just looked dead. I think it was 10 plus minutes into the second half before they made a bucket. I chalk it up to fatigue.

Here's hoping that neither Denard Robinson nor Mike Martin starts.... because other players beat them out, not because they lose their job.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||2011||
Next year's team looks like it will be able to compete at that level:
Senior: Novak and Douglas
Junior: Morris and Vogrich
RS Soph: Morgan, McLimans
Soph: Hardaway, Smotrycz, Horford, Christian
Fresh: Brundidge, Burke (and Pointer?)
Not a bad team in my opinion.

There's plenty of Fat Tire up here in Indianapolis. It's not that far a drive for you.

I know the internet is all about screaming bloody murder about everything, but in this case perhaps it applies.
I loved these shirts and own a bunch of them already. Hopefully, the order I placed when the HE16MAN shirt first showed up will still come.
What saddens me the most is the loss of all the future shirts. There has been some great creativity here that will now never happen.

This game they shot 30.5% from three, while last game they shot 38% from three. If I recall, Coach is looking for 36% from three for it to be considered a good shooting night.

When Michigan is playing Michigan is it even possible for both the Offense and Defense to look great? Isn't this a bit of a zero sum game?
|4 years 5 weeks ago||The reason you don't like||
The reason you don't like them is the exact reason I do like them. I like the fact that most everyone I see has no idea what my shirt is saying.
You go to Target or god forbid Abercrombie and they sell shirts for stuff that doesn't even exist like "Sweet Joe's Trucking and Repair."
|4 years 5 weeks ago||Hmmm...||
Well in general, when one is conducting research that attempts to explain why something happened one should not fall into the trap of assuming that the result of some process tells us why it happened. In other words, the result does not tell us why the result happened. Assuming it does is a tautology.

Becuase, obviously, men can't cook food and where else would his wife/girlfriend be, if not the kitchen?
|4 years 19 weeks ago||I agree with the posters||
I agree with the posters above who are wondering about whether or not a law degree is really the best path to achieving your goal of public policy advocacy. Although, knowledge of the law surrounding health policy is important. In order to get into an organization that is currently lobbying Congress (or whomever), a law degree is not necessary.
I also graduated from UM with a major in Pol. Sci. and now have a Ph.D. in Pol. Sci. My wife works as a women's rights advocate around the globe. In my opinion, getting involved in public policy advocacy requires the same steps you've taken in your current career. Get in at the ground floor somewhere, work your way up and make connections. It would also help to get some type of advanced degree in public policy along the way, but it is not critical and I wouldn't spend a lot of money on it. A Ph.D. in this area could help in some ways, as it would make you a more marketable "free agent" so to speak, but again not necessary.
