Sounds pretty much like the state of the Michigan football program when Harbaugh came to the rescue.
"They said we ended up back on our wheels, but there were no wheels on the car at that point," she said. "I was upside down out of the window. I was out of the car past my hips, probably to my upper thighs."

interview at the end of this story
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Interview||
If you listen to the interview it does sound like the Neals are overstating what was actually said and what really happened. Towards the end, he said he was still trying to make up his mind for 10 minutes after Mattison left his house, at which point he said to his dad that he had made up his mind and he's going to Nebraska. His dad then asked him "Are you sure?" and he said yes I want to go to Nebraska. If it was as insulting as they make it out to be and if they truly threw Mattison out of the house, there wouldn't have been anything left to think about.
Also, the kid comes off pretty poorly informed (which could be Michigan's fault) and mentions one of the things he liked about Nebraska is that during the summers they go help out disabled kids and that he really liked that about the school. He also likes a really big campus and a really big stadium. All of these things are well known and well publicized about the Michigan football program.

I'd love to see him do this with a class the size Saban brings in. He's going to have to buy a bus to get them all around.

Let's hope this goes the same way as the last time a 5 star corner visited campus. Real recognize real.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Offense||
Living in Sacramento I catch some games occasionally. It's startling to watch NBA offenses after watching Beilein's system for the last few years. NBA offense is basically stand around and iso. These guys are so talented they don't need offensive schemes. Nik's game doesn't fit this approach. I'd love to see him traded somewhere that plays team ball like San Antonio. I think he could flourish in that kind of system. Right now he just stands in the corner like he did his freshman year and his talents aren't being maximized.

Unfortunately because your friend only took a picture from the waist up we'll never know if Jim was wearing khakis.

FWIW Michigan players still think Brandon was a good AD

Glad I'm not the only one who just went on the hunt for the elusive Paterno cat. I thought theses were oddly appropriate
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Sad||
This is a very awesome gesture from everyone in the athletic department, which makes it difficult to rag on, but it's extremely sad that's it's come to a point that something like this needed to happen. I would imagine most schools do this only in very rare circumstances, such as when you lose a team member or on their way to the national championship game, not simply when your hc and ad have had their names dragged through the mud all week.

Mgoblog posts a game recap pretty soon after the game ends. Avoid mgoblog and the entire Internet if you are dvr'ing a game.
ps - count yourself lucky you didn't have to watch that

Too bad there's not something like the medical redshirt process for this kid to be able to restore his eligibility at Baylor. Let the kid finish out his career.

|2 years 1 week ago||I think your example||
I think your example demonstrates exactly why separate bargaining units would be necessary. Generally, the appropriateness of a bargaining unit is determined on the basis of a community of interest of the employees involved. Those who have the same or substantially similar interests concerning wages, hours, and working conditions are grouped together in a bargaining unit. The disparity of the interests between the different groups would likely require different units. The football players would object to being lumped in with "employees" with such less bargaining strength. The whole idea behind unit determination is grouping people into groups that have as much in common as possible.
|2 years 1 week ago||Reporters questions||
The reporters questions aren't as inane as they appear. She makes a valid point. The various athletes obviously have differing interests and differing bargaining strengths such that different bargaining units will have to be created. Each of those bargaining units will have to negotiate individual cba's which will result in different provisions over all sorts of different terms and conditions of "employment" for all these different groups. For example, the tennis players whose facilities are located off campus will be highly interested in transportation to their facilities while the football players won't care as much about certain issues. If you lump all the players together under a single cba, the only athletes whose concerns will be addressed are the football and basketball players due to their greater relevance.

|2 years 32 weeks ago||Sandwiches||
With all due respect to the board's sandwich/subs(!) obsession, which I absolutely share, the thing that stuck out to me about this interview is how genuinely excited Hand seems to be about Michigan and his UTL2 trip. Everything I read about the kid says how level and even-keel he is in interviews and how he plays things close to the vest, never tipping any sort of preference (other than in the epic Ohio GIF). Listening to this interview, I heard a kid who is flat out ecstatic about the trip he had and everything the school has to offer.
