This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

Kickstarters can't provide equity, by the way. That's not what they're for.
That said, this Kickstarter proudly proclaims that they have no business executives, and that fact is painfully obvious from every other part of the presentation and business strategy.
Finally, I would play a good college football game that's not licensed by the NCAA.

If you enjoy Margaery, you should know that Natalie Dormer plays nearly the same character and just as well in The Tudors, which is available on Netflix. Pretty decent series.

Ugh. Honest truth: when I run into something like this, it feels horribly disrespectful to the candidate. This process seems all too common:
Email: Hello, SituationSoap! I came across your resume, and I would like to talk to you about X Job! I think you'd be a great fit. Here's a job description!
I read the job description, and say, "Hey, I'm interested in new opportunities, let's go see if they want to set up an interview." I'm told that I need to fill out the online application in order to go forward in the process. "OK," I think, "hopefully this won't be too bad."
I hit the website, and I'm asked to upload my resume. No sweat. Next, I'm asked to submit to a background check to verify my job history. No big deal, not a problem. Now I'm asked to painstakingly re-enter the information that was submitted both in my resume and would be available from the background check. At this point, I am seriously considering whether or not this job is worth it over the five other emails I've gotten this week.
Now, my circumstance is unique; I work in software development and there are a lot more development jobs than there are developers. But HR departments seem to have this hard-on for utterly ridiculous pre-interview requirements, which seem even more ridiculous in light of the fact that often, they're the ones who reached out to me, and it's the kind of thing that can eliminate your company from consideration right off the bat. Streamlining your application process is going to make the interview more pleasant for everyone involved.

*shrug* There's one time I've been happy that I had my phone with me during an interview -- I was interviewing for a Software Developer position at Meijer. I'd already told them that I didn't want the job, but they really wanted me to come in and I'd just started a ten day vacation, so I didn't have anything better to do.
It was supposed to be a string of interviews with different people on the team that I'd be working with, six in all. I got through the first five and the sixth person was supposed to show up and then escort me out. They never showed. I sat there for an hour, tried calling my HR contact (the only person I knew; I didn't know who the sixth person was supposed to be) three times, but she'd apparently decided to leave for lunch without telling anyone. If I hadn't had my phone, I would've been bored out of my mind. In the end, they told me they'd get back to me within the next week to let me know whether or not they wanted to make an offer -- that was the week before Christmas. I still haven't heard back from them.
TL;DR: Don't go work for Meijer. They have some serious issues taking care of their interviewees.

I don't have evidence for it, but the notion that's being bandied about is that the horrible reports coming out about Smith right now are basically all sourced from (and possibly made up by) his fired agents. I find it rather convincing, because it seems like this is the kind of thing we would have heard an inkling of before the draft, not suddenly days afterward.

Northwestern, for all intents and purposes, is a home game. There will be more M fans there than NW fans.
But yeah, I see nine or ten wins as most likely, based on splitting the tossups (three of four of which are at home, so that's probably conservative).

I'll be comfortable predicting Ohio a loss at home the first time Brady Hoke actually loses in Michigan Stadium.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Lewan would not have been a||
Lewan would not have been a first overall pick had he gone in this year's draft (at least, that was the projection when he made his decision, it's possible he could have moved up from a great offseason). Had Taylor Lewan gone pro, he probably would have been picked in the top five picks (pretty good shot he goes to the Lions at 5 instead of Ziggy Ansah), but this year was chock-full of offensive linemen, and even a bit of a stumble could have dropped him to the middle of the first round or later. The Likelihood this year is that he will be able to maintain a top ten draft pick position much more easily, since the odds of his stock falling are incredibly low.
The original question asked whether Devin Gardner would stay an amateur after a college season, and the answer is absolutely not. For starters, to win a Heisman as the QB in a pro-style system like Michigan's will essentially require that Gardner is the stand out top tier candidate for the entire season, and since Michigan is playing in a second-tier conference, that's going to be even harder. It literally won't be possible for his draft stock to get any higher than it would at that point. I would be upset with him if he were to stay, because there's no possible way his future could get brighter than it would be during that moment.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Based on his physical||
Based on his physical attributes and the offense that Michigan runs, if Devin Gardner wins the Heisman (which is incredibly unlikely), he will be a top five, and likely first overall pick in the draft, and there is no possible way that he will stay for a Redshirt senior year.
None of us will care about that, because the worst possible scenario if Gardner puts up a Heisman season is a Rose Bowl, and more likely is a National Championship Game berth.
