They might not have known who it was? He signed the damn credit card receipt with his own name.

Chris Webber and Juwan Howard were in my discussion section. At least for the first meeting. lol. Juwan tapped me on the shoulder and asked if he could look at my Michigan Daily. True story, bro.

It was 25 years ago, so don't know course numbers, or if they are still even taught...
1. SPORTS AND DAILY LIFE IN ANCIENT ROME... we watched and analyzed Sparticus and talked about gladiators.
2. DINOSAURS AND OTHER FAILURES... this was one of those famed "mini-courses." Again, not sure if they still exist.
3. ADVANCED MICROBIOLOGY LAB... our class project was to make beer.
4. FOOD OF THE ANCIENT WORLD... lots of recreated ancient dishes made by us and wine provided by the professor. Honestly, a class based on the premise and eating and drinking like the glutonous ancient Romans. How can you top that?

Why did you have your genome mapped? Just curious.
(LS&A is a school not a department. Just to be that guy.)

I'm not sure I get the negative reaction.
In medicine, it's an honor to be given an endowed title.
Plus, this means that his salary is being paid by the proceed of some rich family's donation to the athletic department rather than student tuition or tax dollars.
That works for me.

Might keep an eye on this guy... seems to be pissed that they are allowing blacks coach the lions.

I'll take that as a "yes."
And I looked it up. Dungy and his staff won the Super Bowl. I would consider that qualified.

Oh, the wheels are in motion... the house we just bought has a huge unfished basement (including a toilet, shower, sink, and a door into the backyard).... it's only a matter of time before I disappear.

Where is the "sisterwives" joke?

I would kill for a mancave.
Wait, don't tell my wife I said that.

Sound more like... "let's pander to 8 people who need a reason to give us more money."

Rosenberg still live in Ann Arbor... in fact he's my neighbor. He's definitely taller than 5'2".
Please don't ban me.

I was referring to the more to the tone of your post and the expectation of the subsequent comments than your specific wording, although you changed the tone with your edits.
As someone who's life and career were damaged by a claim that was eventually proven false, I've always been outspoken about any post or thread that speculatively discusses the alleged criminal activity of athletes (or anyone, for that matter, if you remember the mods raking some student over the coals for his alleged inappropriate touching on a gif that they posted from a basketball game last year).
EDIT: See Exhibit A below (currently post #13, 2 posts below).

Downvote for assuming the guy is guilty prior to a conviction.
Maybe he raped her. Maybe they had concesual sex that night. Were any of us there?

I'm curious on the math behind Michigan burning 29 redshirts this year... where does that come from?

Oh, you forgot...
You're an asshole for booing.
You're an asshole for judging me for booing.
Even though we are all supporting the same team, this is how far we've devolved. It's becoming hard to stay with this blog, and all of it's assholes.

I think there's no way they decrease season ticket prices, although it will be interesting to see what they do with face value/public ticket prices, and dynamic pricing.
They usually designate 2 or 3 games as "premium games" and charge $20 more per ticket face valuae for those games. I can't imagine any games next year are "premium games."
Similarly, if they let market demand dictate "dynamic" pricing, I don't see any games going above public face value.

Pediatrician even. Put that in your pipe, and smoke it.

You're one of those "have to have the last word" guys, aren't you?
|44 weeks 1 day ago||I am also going to suggest||
I am also going to suggest that real Michigan fans don't judge the voracity of other Michigan fans. WTF?
(see what I did there?)
Sorry to be grouchy, but as a third generation legacy, double-degreed alumnus, 42 year season ticket holder (football plus hockey), and current faculty, having my my fan-ness questioned makes me want to fucking smack someone. Aren't we all on the same side here?
|44 weeks 1 day ago||Amen. And thank you.||
Amen. And thank you.
|44 weeks 1 day ago||I think you should read my||
I think you should read my post again, or stop twisting to your benefit. I never said I was going to cancel my seats. Considering it? Yes, but so that I can take advantage of what I suspect will be the more affordable option of buying tickets on the secondary market.
So if you think I'm less of a fan because I still plan on going to all of the home games, just not buying the tickets through the athletic department, then so be it.
And no, not because the team is bad... that's merely a factor. Maybe you shouldn't have stopped reading after I begged the question.
|44 weeks 1 day ago||Nice. I was merely pointing||
Nice. I was merely pointing out a possible scenario, hoping to generate a thoughtful discussion and hear what other fans think.
But, hey, I can trade personal insults and profanity with the best of them.
|44 weeks 1 day ago||So, what you're saying, is||
So, what you're saying, is the more money I throw at the athletic department, the bigger fan I am?
Makes total sense.
That's pretty insulting to a lot of fans out there. Sure, if I was a millionaire, I wouldn't care how bad the team was, and I would continue to pay whatever asked for tickets, but I'm not. Just a guy with a wife, 2 kids, and an ailing mother who has priorities that may be different than yours.
