I don't know, but I was at the Moundros family tailgate before the game yesterday. Very hospitable people!

Lebron and RichRod both have bad PR instincts.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||Right, that is where I read||
Right, that is where I read it first, well actually I read the slashdot.org blurb which redirected me there.
I think it is hilarious that it made it to nytimes.com, especially since the press release was rejected.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||no. once a year is perfect.||
no. once a year is perfect. that is what makes the game so important.
although, i do agree that playing another game after it diminshes the dramatic effect. but, like others have posted, there isn't a way to avoid that sad fact. at least delany will keep it the last regular season game of the year.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||why would you want this?||
so we would be guaranteed to play them during the big ten regular season, then we could also play them in the championship game? this makes absolutely no sense. if we split these games then the winner of the last game wins the conference. uhh, no thanks.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||uh no. if nebraska didn't||
uh no. if nebraska didn't come to the big ten, none of this would have ever happened.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||Why did you think that Miles||
Why did you think that Miles was unproven? He was headed to the NC. I agree that RR was a proven coach, but he never went to the NC. In fact, many feel he bungled his chance that year in the Pitt game.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||Nice way to stick with the||
Nice way to stick with the theme. I completely agree with your point. Larry Scott was hired to bring change to the Pac 10 and make it more relevant. At first blush, he seems to be doing just that. Howeva, I think he is a newb that is out of his league (in this case the WTA), and doesn't understand the maneuvering required to make change happen.
Delany is looking like a mad schemer orchestrating the realignment.
Larry Scott is just a butterfly flapping his wings, whereas Delany is controlling the weather.

Brian, I assume you take this back from http://mgoblog.com/content/unverified-voracity-actual-number ?
There is virtually nothing that can convince me that not taking Demar Dorsey is a good idea as long as the university makes a good-faith effort to educate him once he arrives. What you do with the poor black kid after he shows up is what reflects the character of the institution.
In my comment here http://mgoblog.com/content/unverified-voracity-actual-number#comment-508344, I disagreed with this point. Apparently people disagreed with me since I received negative points.
I was surprised by your comment above. Your post today is more thoughtful.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||the definition of character||
character - noun
1. the aggregate of features and traits that form the individual nature of some person or thing.
So clearly, the character of the university is partly determined by its academic reputation, as that is a trait. The academics of the incoming students influence the academic reputation of the university. Hence, the academics of the incoming students reflect the character of the institution.
I really can't be any clearer than that.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||wrong and wrong||
the admissions process does not take race or income into account. the admissions department denied demar admission. that is my point. simple.
one of the reasons i went to michigan is due to its excellent academic reputation. one of the reasons michigan has an excellent academic reputation is because it admits high school students with excellent academic records. also simple.
also, where do you see outrage, phony or otherwise, in my post. i am not outraged at all about any of this. brian is the one with the (phony?) outrage about the "poor black kid" being the victim.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||Dorsey and the denial||
I am going to go ahead and disagree. I like that Dorsey was denied admittance. I do not know the particulars about the internal process that lead to the decision. I also do not wish to spend my time obsessing about the reasons.
"What you do with the poor black kid after he shows up is what reflects the character of the institution"
Brian, you really want to play the "race card" and hell the "socioeconomic card" too? Do you think this matters that he is poor and black?
As a two-time Michigan graduate I happen to think that the academic records of the incoming student body heavily reflects the the character of the institution. As a Michigan grad, this should matter more to you too.
In the end, it seems to come down to Dorsey being a borderline case for acceptance. The academic standards for athletes on scholarship are really quite low. It is too bad he could not meet these requirements, regardless of his athletic ability. I wish him good luck.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||P & G reference||
So what is this about? Does this have to do with the difficulty of attracting legitimate advertising revenue?
|4 years 19 weeks ago||not sure about the title post...||
But, maybe we are supposed to "drink this up" and become "intoxicated" with excitement?

why? if i had the opportunity, i'd rather look at a hottie in a bikini, wouldn't you?
|4 years 21 weeks ago||Yeah, but Hall was a stud at||
Yeah, but Hall was a stud at Michigan. I would say that Warren's talent is closer to Trent than Hall. Trent is really fast too. Coaches and GMs love speed at CB.
I would not wish a Lions curse on any player.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||agree||
Iowa also threw at him successfully all game. He did have an interception, but it showed that even mediocre college quarterbacks are not afraid to throw at him.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||take a closer look||
Sorry, but those letters are yellow. The pic Brian put up has blue letters. Take another look if you don't believe me.
Don't you see what is going on here? That is not an 'S' it is a '5'. Coach Rodriguez is planting very subtle signs about the identity of the starting quarterback this fall. It is hidden in plain sight for anyone to see.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||i guess you don't like him||
i guess you don't like him too much...
|4 years 21 weeks ago||question||
During the spring game, did anyone else notice that Denard doesn't tie his shoes? I am looking forward to hearing more about this in the fall from the commentators during the broadcast.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||it obviously depends on the||
it obviously depends on the qb. tate got hit a LOT last year...and he was limping from the ankle sprain on saturday. his size combined with his playing style/attitude leads to a high risk of injury. so yes, seeing an improved denard was a welcome sight.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||interesting sub-thread...||
buddha's arguments come of as the more persuasive to me
|4 years 22 weeks ago||uh, no.||
He said it was not unprecedented in response to the comment about guaranteed obscurity. He actually did have a potent argument, as it was backed up by EVIDENCE.
|4 years 23 weeks ago||we shall be 9th in total||
we shall be 9th in total offense and -21st in scoring offense. simple as that. i can say this with confidence since i was a math major at UM
|4 years 23 weeks ago||fond mcard memories||
My MCard was linked to First of America...ahh the memories. That was back in my freshman year of '95, the first year of the MCard. Before that I think it was just called a student id.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||Michigan was never an option...||
for Joe or Jordan. I worked with their mom, Sylvia. They both wanted schools with major basketball programs, hence Kentucky and Indiana.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||source?||
Steve in PA, what is the source?
I have worked in downtown Detroit since 2003. I have not seen a drastic difference in the past 7 years. It is a continuation of a process that began long ago See Thomas Sugrue's Origin of the Urban Crisis for a nice explanation that tracks the "flight" from Detroit.
As a professional urban planner that has worked for the City of Detroit Planning & Development Department and currently works for an organization focused on SE MI, I call into question many of the assertions in the piece you lifted. I urge everyone to ignore the statistics he provided unless he provides data sources.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||it is hard to dry some peppers||
Cayenne is really easy to dry and is usually what you see in the form of red pepper flakes. It is easy to make your own. You can make a ristra (google the term). I just set them out and let them dry, then grind them in a food processor. Cayennes work b/c the walls of the pepper are thin. If the walls are too thick, like a jalapeno, the pepper will not dry. It will rot. However these peppers can be smoked, e.g. chipotles are smoked jalapenos.

In Dantonio's wacky view of the world, by reinstating them he is actually allowing them to perform community service in the form of spring practice. See, it's a win-win!
