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.
|18 weeks 3 hours 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...
|1 year 15 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.

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.
|2 years 35 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.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||I know the internet is all||
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.
|2 years 43 weeks ago||When Michigan is playing||
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?
|2 years 44 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."
|2 years 44 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?
|3 years 6 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.

If your signals are so simple that the guys from OSU can steal them, then shame on you.
|3 years 21 weeks ago||Downtown||
I live in Indy also and would recommend downtown if it is at all possible. If you are going all the way out to Carmel you could pretty much stay anywhere. You might as well save money and stay at a hotel near the airport, in which case you would have easier freeway access from your hotel to the part of town you want to be.
On another note, does anybody know when UM might start (or have they already?) selling tickets for the tourney? I'd prefer to buy tickets from UM and sit next to other UM fans. I think I saw IU already has a B10 tourney package up for sale on their site.

Vogrich was in and promptly threw the ball away. At which point, he returned to the bench.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||The filibuster is a delaying||
The filibuster is a delaying tactic, whether or not you actually see Senators standing up and talking is immaterial. The threat of a filibuster slows the process down, as leaders work behind the scenes in order to shore up the votes they need. And that is just on legislation that the majority is interested in pursuing. See for example, the current debate on health care reform.
In other instances where the majority just sets the issue aside and moves on, it is still a delaying tactic. In this case it can cost years, as the majority waits for opinion or the individuals in the Senate to change. See for example, the long history of civil rights legislation.
My point, the possibility of a filibuster affects legislation both in terms of the time it takes to pass a piece of legislation and the types of legislation we ultimately see or don't see passed.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||My experience is similar to||
My experience is similar to yours. I haven't lived in Michigan since 1999. I've been on the east coast for most of those intervening years (NYC and DC). MSU does not exist out there.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Yeah, it seems to me that if||
Yeah, it seems to me that if we could just get a good Middle LB and a Safety to step up and be just average to good next year, we would be mediocre overall. So, just two key players and they wouldn't even have to be great, just good.
