She's also got a PhD in psychology. And I know there was a discussion about this, she goes as Dr Welter. (Oddly enough, I have an uncle who is an PhD in BioChem Engineering who also is Dr Welter.)
|1 day 8 hours ago||No one else||
I didn't normalize for anyone's class sizes.
|1 day 11 hours ago||While I agree full Harbaughfication will take some time||
He's not starting out of a nuclear crater like he did at Stanford. I was going to say that I figured that Saban had started out in a crater as well, but apparently they were recruiting in the top 20 for a few years before he was hired. Saban took over the Red Elephants in Jan 2007 and according to rivals their recruiting rankings were
2007 10th (hybrid recruiting class)
so he was maybe thin on RSseniors, but should have had solid seniors and RSjuniors.
Saban was 7-6, 12-2, 14-0 his first 3 seasons.
Stanford, prior to Harbaugh in 2007 was
Harbaugh was 4-8, 5-7, 8-5. 12-1
Michigan's recruiting prior to Harbaugh was
So... What does this tell us about expectations vis-a-vis Satan with the Red Elephants? Harbaugh should have a better team than Bama had their first year with Saban, but it still looks like there might be a couple rough years under Harbaugh.
Damn you and your apparently appropriate tempering of expectations.

If you weight completion percentage over YPA (trying to adjust for differences in the quality of the rest of the team) and look at differences in qb rating between the two...stats say Rudock should be right on par with Cook, if not better. Cook beat Rudock significantly only when comparing NW and Indiana, two awful teams that are completely outclassed by msu, but are competitive with Iowa.

K is not graduated in Fahrenheit. It's graduated in Celsius. Other than that, ok. Nobody's going to be playing the footsball at 72C. That like 140F. Even 50C is uncomfortable. Even sitting.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Actually||
There is also a monument to commodore Oliver Perry, who was important in the US winning the War of 1812. It's over 350' tall and is pretty cool. Not all of the island is about drunkfests.
|5 days 14 hours ago||I believe he was a TE in high school||
He may have played two positions but i think Davidson was where he went to school and i believe they play option. So most likely his primary position was blocking te.
|5 days 17 hours ago||Punctuation?||
That was like word salad. It's really hard to read. And don't tell me you're on your phone so you can't put in punctuation.
|1 week 3 days ago||Not really.||
The football season is fall semester so new players can be added in spring. This is how you get early enrollees in the first place.
|1 week 4 days ago||#3?||
|1 week 5 days ago||Blue neck and cuffs on white.||
No piping, borders, stripes, or words not directly related to the university (adidas). Block M on the hip is ok. I don't think one is necessary in the back.
|1 week 5 days ago||Decedent||
This is actually something/someone dead.
|1 week 5 days ago||Hmm...||
I regret I have but one neg to give.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Hmm...||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||While I agree official maize is, by definition, official...||
I like the 70's color. I didn't realize official maize is actually darker than Iowa's.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||No.||
He probably consulted nobody.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||$25000||
I believe is the maximum fine for a first time hipaa violation. But it's been a while since I did my hipaa training.
|3 weeks 9 hours ago||Yes, I think||
Only a few colleges get them and it sounds like then, the players have an opportunity to buy their own, which are very limited in supply.
|3 weeks 16 hours ago||Hi.||
I'm from Michigan and wouldn't swim with alligators if there were signs that told me not to. Doesn't have to be funny, but there is NO excuse for this.
|3 weeks 16 hours ago||28||
He was only 28,i think the article said. Maybe he died before polluting the gene pool.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||parody?||
What are they doing a parody of?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||So we will get an email?||
|3 weeks 5 days ago||How about||
An update on books shipping from the kick starter?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Hmm...||
I thought they did away with the whore group thing for officiating recruiting.
|5 weeks 17 hours ago||Hmm...||
Like people who call Michigan by Kentucky's/IBM's nickname?
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Only...||
He's still showing he will sell out Michigan to get clicks. I feel they should have had media passes revoked until everyone in the sports department retired or left.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Tangentially||
I'm not paying $1 for an mp3. Give me 24 bit 192khz flac and I'll think about it. There is no reason music isn't available in a decent lossless format.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Attrition||
You completely glossed over that.
|6 weeks 18 hours ago||Warren||
I thought the knock on him was he just wasn't fast enough.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Hmm...||
Your implied statement that the people would be smarter if they were anything other than conservative is not really appropriate or acceptable. It exhibits the kind of closed minded egoistic thinking that has made talking politics in polite company and amongst casual acquaintances socially untenable.
