Ditto on Hamilton soundtrack. Got tickets for Chicago in February, woohoo!

I tried getting into this show, I watched the first two episodes. But as someone who was born in the former USSR and whose parents had to grow up under the terror of the Soviet regime, I just could not bring myself to stick with it. Too personal.

I've been using 3 apps, with good results!:
StrongLifts 5x5 for strength on MWF
10K Trainer (Couch to 10K) for cardio on TR
MyFitnessPal for tracking calories
Using the phone apps makes it real easy for my own reference and motivation.

I'm just incredibly disappointed that the Final Four seemed to have done nothing for our recruiting and perception. And this year, we're a very frustrating team to watch, I was hoping the Minnesota and Rutgers games were just us playing down to the opposition but it's clear we are a mediocre/below mediocre team this year. I wouldn't be surprised to see only 2 more wins this season.

I got about 100 pages in, got to the footnote about Wheelchair Assassins that's like 40 pages in the appendix, and put the book down.

Heh, I visited both USC and Michigan when picking grad schools. I loved that I could walk around Ann Arbor, that people didn't leave 30 minutes from campus because the area by the campus is so unsafe like at USC, that the air was clean and not smoggy. Hopefully Gary sees this difference as well.

Damn, "In addition, a participant cannot be more than six years removed from high school unless on active military duty and/or a religious mission."
Guess my Heisman dream is dead :(

Won 164-97! Kork Coupons led the way, though almost everyone pulled their weight pretty well. Taking the fiancee out to Pacific Rim with the winnings!

McCaffrey has 1847 rushing yards with 8 TDs, 540 receiving yards with 4 TDs, 1042 kickoff return yards with 1 TD, 67 punt return yards, and 39 passing yards with 2 TDs. That's a pretty versatile year I think.

The finalists were announced before the OSU game, weren't they?

Wait what am I missing about the Davis situation? He redshirted in 2011, played in 2012, 2013, 2014, was injured for 2015. Why wouldn't he get a medical redshirt for 2015 and be eligible for 2016? Why would him playing on the scout team matter in 2011, aren't you allowed to play on scout teams while redshirting? Why does it matter if he was "legitimately injured" or not in 2011?
EDIT: Ahh, I just read you can only miss 2 years if they were both due to injury.
|39 weeks 3 days ago||I think Michigan beats OSU||
I think Michigan beats OSU 21-17. 14-14 after first half, OSU gets a field goal in the 3rd, Rudock throws the winning touchdown to Darboh with 4 minutes left and the defense keeps OSU from scoring again. Tim Beck has "esophageal spasms" and "steps down" as OSU OC.
MSU struggles early with Penn State, giving us all a glimmer of hope, then Dantonio cackles at the thought of Michigan fans' hope and turns up the DISRESPEKT levels, MSU ends up winning easily.
Iowa beats Nebraska and beats MSU the following week because come on, I refuse to believe the universe is that awful.

Michigan vs W&M in Kaplan? Be still, my beating heart. That would be a fun game to watch. Wouldn't be surprised to see both teams in the 80s-90s if W&M can get hot with 3 pointers. Maybe an upset over Michigan is all we need to make our first Big Dance ;)

|47 weeks 2 days ago||Well the reason I said "for||
Well the reason I said "for 2018 and later I guess" was because of the line about us not having an open date until 2018. All Hackett said was "Jim's calling about scheduling, he's involved."
|47 weeks 2 days ago||I was there! It was a really||
I was there! It was a really good experience, great to see the athletic department engaging the students and trying to communicate their plans and fix what the previous regime messed up.
I love Hackett, he seems like he really cares, such a genuine guy. Great personality too, really funny. He made a joke about how other big schools have meetings like this between the athletic department and students, schools like "OSU and Texas, definitely Texas." Then when talking about Nike he said he wanted Michigan's uniforms to maintain tradition, he said "I'm not going to name names, but there's some Nike schools that have 30 uniforms for one sport."
I feel a lot more confident about the Michigan athletic department with Hackett and his people in charge.
EDIT: Some other details the article left out:
Hackett mentioned Harbaugh was calling about scheduling, for 2018 and later I guess?
When talking about seating in the stadium some girl off-handedly mentioned they should bring back general seating which led to a lot of boos from the students.
One student mentioned the possibility of the athletic department working with housing to have freshmen sit close to their freshmen hall, which Hackett really liked.
Hackett mentioned he does "Critical Thinking Meetings" to cover every aspect of an issue. It seemed like he was open to hanging up the Fab Five banners but mentioned that during the Critical Thinking Meeting about it someone brought up the issue that the wins are vacated, in the record books we never won those games, so it doesn't make sense to put them up. Someone brought up the possibility of leaving open space between the 1989 and 2013 banner to symbolize the Fab Five banners.
Hackett wanted to have a night game this year but couldn't get it to work out, he said "one of the rival teams was open to having a night game, I'm sure you can guess who" but was worried about safety issues in Ann Arbor, said the bars fill up and could cause lots of problems.

Yo. I posted further down. The article does a pretty good job covering everything. Oh there was one point where some student mentioned we should do general seating again and the other students booed her haha.
