The world of mascots is kind of amazing, and definitely representative of the singular mentality of college sports.
I've found many exceedingly creepy costumes. Including several versions of Penn State's terrifying lion suit. At Washington University, it's a bear.
Michigan Agricultural (now MSU) and Baylor both used live bear mascots at one time. Baylor force fed theirs Dr Pepper becasue it was a sponsor.

He would probably land on his feet in recruiting and would benefit from the upgrade from Arizona to Miami in fotball status and legacy. And the location couldn't hurt. I agree, he could do wonderful things for the school.
That would suddenly be a much more interesting conference too.
So, when at WVU and looking for a big name UofM with unique cultural expectations to escape to, he got turned around and went north instead of south. And that made all the difference.

There is supreme confidence in having that conversation. Harbaugh is simply confident he has the guys that are the smartest, work hardest, want it most, whatever actual fact is behind the cliches. We're better and we can do better. With all these great people around the obvious choice is to use their collective strengths, not limiting yourself to the traditional.
There is no fear in a team this confident in its ability. When football isn't hard work, it's more likely to be fun than terrifying.
Football looks like it's called by generals and executed by soldiers. But Jim Harbaugh and his team are at their job, playing a game. One their pretty amazing at.
Finding something you do really well is an accomplishment. When that thing is playing football, it's sublime.

It took him 17 hours of meeting to decide whether to tell the truth or not and he still got it wrong.

What about "the Rise, Fall, and Return of Michigan Football" made you think it's a dry treatment concerning the X's & O's of the 2014 team?

I feel that too. At the same time, knowing won't change reality and will just make us more angry at other pawns just trying to make their own way in this dark, corrupt world.

Mr. Wagner is nothing like Dave Brandon and you'd be hard pressed to find any musical theater kid who had anything less than gushing praise.
That's not to say that this decision wasn't Brandon-esque, or that it isn't an apt comparison in this instance. Just know the persnickity was coming from a very different, more traditionalist less commercial "wow experience", kind of place. A place that gets oddly religious about musical theater. And capitalizing the names of plays.
They do killer renditions of "Happy Birthday To You" too, if one is ever so lucky.
Trivia: Wagner also taught Aaron Sorkin (also a musical theater kid) and there have been occasional 'easter eggs' like a character or mailbox with the name "Mr. Wagner".

But if we're in the business of placating those taking umbrage. How about 10 yards on the ensuing kickoff?

Posting this had been on my to-do list for this slow news week. Favorite bit is the student who faked his own death then hid out in the attic of the curch at State & Huron.
Also, all the Charles Guiteau references, this must be incorporated into future M lore.

if you're any kind of enjoyer of foods
I wandered around there for a good long time and also found Neal's Yard Dairy (http://www.nealsyarddairy.co.uk/shops_borough.html) and happened upon the place where Zingerman's gets many of their UK cheeses. They even sell the Zingerman's books in the store and were happy to chat and rave about them for a good time and we ended up getting some nice deals on picnic food.
Given warm weather, that's probably not a bad way to spend part of the non-football trip.

It really sounds like nothing to denigrate despite not being the type of cheerleading we would celebrate or expect if we were all just horny guys on the sideline. It sounds like what they one was closer to an athletic sport then to an exhibition for miniskirts and and (un)healthy diets.
