I'd say this Jim fellow has done pretty damn well for himself.

to get me to want to read more about uniforms. The Minick thread did just that.

Thanks and all that--I know you're trying to keep things interesting during a down time.
But you asked for my opinion: I couldn't care less about this and think it's been talked to death. Whoever it is, I'll continue to buy M stuff, and I trust Hackett to be a good steward of the University's interests. I also don't buy that it'll make a huge difference in recruiting, though I'll concede it'll have some effect at the margin in basketball.
The FB season cannot start too soon for me.

It is right of you.

Torn ACL, arthritis, neck injury, numb extremities (Bleacher Report, 3/13/14) and two concussions. And the University will honor his scholarship so he can graduate. Why in the world is this decision controversial?

Touche! They will be en route.

Thank you Mr Yost. I will happily drink with you.
The home bar construction continues (more floor leveling and slate installation work) so it's Dale's Pale Ale for me this afternoon. Wish I had a cold Stroh's though.

Harbaugh is going to be super careful, especially about head injuries. If Pipkins played and got another concussion (which becomes more likely the more you have them) or another severe knee injury Harbaugh would be called reckless, negligent, and willing to subordinate his players' safety to winning.
He reportedly encouraged Pipkins to stay in school and finish up at Michigan, under scholarship. Pipkins thinks he still has an NFL future, and didn't want to do that. I think there's ample reason to believe JH is acting in Pipkins' best interest on this one.

I sense a book in your dad's stories. Thanks for posting them--he sounds like a great guy.
The Big Mac is part of one of my earliest memories, and as a pilot I've always wanted to fly over it. As it turns out, my wife and I are invited to a party on Mackinac in October. So we'll be flying the Mooney back there, and barring world class instrument conditions (which are always possible in Michigan) we'll get to see that.
We won't be staying at the Grand Hotel (we've found a place, ahem, a bit less pricey) but I can guarantee you we'll be having drinks there!

Year-after-year play matters. I was just talking to some IA fans at Red Rocks about the MI-IA games that were back to back in the 80s (85/86?) that were both decided by field goals, each deciding things in favor of the home team, and at least one was #1 vs #2. One was a heartbreaker, the other was ecstasy. I miss those days of either getting even, or knowing the other side wanted to.
And, I did my masters at Purdue. Didn't go there for any other reason than the academics, but I love seeing them give OSU hell. ND too. (Being able to root against ND twice in a season was something I wrote into my application cover letter as a benefit. They said they liked it).

I've heard more than one Husker describe Texas as a cancer within the Big 12. Unless that got fixed somehow (like TX leaving for another conference), I don't think NE would even consider going back.
And even if that were the case, I'm not sure they'd want to leave the B1G. Yes, they're a natural fit: The soul of the B1G is rooted in the Midwest.
Nebraska excepted, the problem is that expansion has ruined what is great about being in a conference. If we never play Rutgers again, I couldn't care less. But I miss playing Wisconsin every year.

Be safe back there. Take cover and take the Bell's or Vernors (there is no more Stroh's) and Better Made with you. Could be a long night.

I'll look now. And if there's nothing there, I'll also get a look after I lift the nosewheel of the Mooney in the early AM.

And happy Father's Day. Welcome to the club. I hope you got a "Michigan Dad" coffee mug or beer glass or something this AM.
FWIW, my wife and I took the approach that the student ought to figure it out. She figures it out = she owns it. You figure it out = you own it. By all means, be there for advice and counsel, but she's going to Michigan so she can figure it out.
I would recommend going to the parent orientation. I was skeptical of its value (what are they going to tell me about my alma mater that I don't already know?) but it turned out to be pretty good--especially the panel discussions with current students. This theme of letting them decide the degree of your involvement in their lives as students was a big one.

I took my dad down to the Keys last month for a little fishing with my wife and kids. He's 91 and doesn't get out too much any more and so he enjoyed it immensely. My advice is the same as everyone else's: Spend time with your dad while you can.
My idea of a good time is to work around the house, so that's what I'll do today. Am building a bar and have to level the floor before getting started on the slate. It's a ton of work. With these projects one thing always leads to six others. But when you get it done, it's yours. And your family can always say "I remember when Dad built that."

Why take someone seriously who won't go on the record? That screams "no credibility" to me.

On the deck, followed by a St Supery Sauvignon Blanc. Goes well with the sockeye I ran through the smoker last weekend.

Think the question comes down to whether you trust JH and a number of other NFL coaches to develop high school talent better than high school coaches. I do.

When I lived in Zurich it was the only decent beer sold at the Denner (Swiss discount grocer). It came in half-liter cans and I'm sure the Swiss customs officials didn't exactly expedite its arrival into Switzerland, but it was still great.
Certainly way better than any of the mass produced Swiss beers, but that's not really saying much.

Thanks for posting. Since they're all now apparently assigned, I'll have to ask my daughter where hers are. I am so looking forward to being an obnoxious, frequently visiting dad this season.

they brought Ralphie out and the Michigan section (of which I was one; I actually went to all three MI-CU games in the 90's) kept yelling "Bring out the cow! We want to see the cow!"
CU fans were not amused. And we won.

he at least strongly implied yesterday that the camp was all about DJ. (I gave the article the time it deserved, so my recollection isn't perfect; I refuse to click on the current one). I suspect he hedged his bets after rethinking the logic (such as it was) of setting up an entire camp solely for one "lightly recruited" two-star who was somehow simultaneously under Michigan's radar, yet worthy of setting up an entire camp to evaluate and recruit. In addiition, DJ could have been offered without doing the camp at all.
For anyone within 6 degrees of separation with the SEC to complain about this is absurd. He's just trying to gin up support for a ban.

According to ETS, the testing service that administers the TOEFL, score reports take 13 days for processing and printing, then there's an additional 7-10 day delivery cycle by mail in the US. Not sure if I've heard whether he's taken it yet, but he definitely has to for admission. Fingers crossed the delay is due to something like that.

Is very OT.
Ensuring balance in the Wolverine "Harbaughtat" requires just the right combination of block M beer glasses, whiskey tumblers, a Bo bobble head or two, at least a 55" TV, maybe a maize and blue recliner. If there's a pool table, then you need the lights. This stuff is important.

Is such a banal, shallow expression. But it is all I have. So thanks, guys. You saved Western Civilization.
