He was suspended last year for the same thing. I don't think he learned anything.

The NFL mandated leg pads last year but I'm not sure what the college rules are. I can't believe players feel that the advantage of more mobility and fashion outweigh the injury insurance pads provide but we are talking about 18 to 22 year old kids so...

Goodell doesn't have to promote domestic bliss but he has, up to the point of suspending Ray Rice (after he was cut), done nothing in his power to dissuade domestic violence. His power happens to be allowing criminals to be employed. If he had suspended players indefinitely for the dozens of other cases of domestic violence maybe guys would stop hitting their wives. Maybe they wouldn't but at least they wouldn't be representing the NFL in their mug shots.

It's Goodell's job to police NFL players. He has done basically nothing to dissuade players from beating up women. I'll go as far as saying the first Ray Rice suspension was because Rice appeared on video abusing his fiance not because he abused his fiance. The most recent suspension only occurred after a video was released of what we already knew happened. The NFL indeed has a problem and no one is doing anything about it. The media isn't convoluting anything. Roger Goodell is in charge and has done little to show he is willing to push those who hit women out of the league.

I would be fired if I brought the negative attention to my company that Goodall and Sterling brought to theirs. Perception matters. When you make your organization look bad for employing you there are consequences. In my opinion the NFL looks pretty bad right now.

Are you familiar with FAA regulations? I'm guessing you haven't received FAA certification and if you are flying over campus you are in the Ann Arbor airport's class D airspace. I suggest a slightly lower profile if you enjoy doing what you are doing.

...but you have to check out Latitude 42. Excellent selection and really creative brewers. They always have something on cask (real beer) and I had my first commercial example of a hot pepper beer there. There is always something interesting on the menu.

Not imperial but very good.

If you can't wait for the new places and want to try something other than Ashley's or Jolly Pumpkin or Bill's Beer Garden or Blue Tractor or Grizzley Peak or Old German or Fraser's check out World of Beer. They have a huge selection. Damn, Ann Arbor is a great beer town!

I've been to a lot of games in Columbus. There are a lot of bars near the stadium so it's set up for someone without all the tailgate gear. You will take some verbal abuse but shouldn't have to worry about anything else unless you are the type of person who has to engage drunk, obnoxious fans. Honestly, going with Buckeyes is probably the way to go for a good experience. That said, I've never seen Michigan win in Columbus so I can't say what the drunks would do after a home loss.

I'm more offended by your run-on sentence than your opinion.

I hadn't heard the hardship was due to Isaac's mother's inability to fly. If logic is applied - not guaranteed, I know - a waiver should be granted for any school within driving distance of Isaac's mother's home.
On another note, it seems the red shirt to transfer rule protects coaches with little regard for the needs of the athlete. I think the values of the rule makers are in the wrong place. Just another example, I suppose...

Two games were delayed last year because the goal post was knocked off level. I'm okay with the rule for this reason but they could have just said if you knock the goal post off level its a penalty.

Pro salary caps are negotiated parts of collective bargaining agreements. The last NFL strike was settled as soon as the NFLPA disbanded because the owners didn't want to deal with no cap for any period of time. Salary caps are illegal if they aren't negotiated. The NCAA should probably encourage players to organize because they could negotiate a favorable deal.

Google "NCAA Tournament TV contract" and reevaluate that statement.

Is the student section full for non-rival games? I haven't been to a game this year so I really don't know the answer to this question.

You just made Coulter's argument. If they are paid, they are employees.
Is there doubt to whether football and basketball players are being exploited at the highest level? The difference between football and basketball players and other sports is that the university is making money from their labor and doesn't bother to negotiate what that labor is worth.

Home brewing is not a very good way to save money. It is cheaper than comparable craft beer if you don't factor in time or equipment. That said, it is a great hobby.
Shameless plug for the Ann Arbor Brewer's Guild for those interested in brewing. Check out aabg.com.
Adventures in Homebrewing is a great home brew store. It is located on Jackson Rd.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Meijer||
Meijer has a good selection and the best prices I've seen for craft beer. The Meijer on Jackson Rd. is the best one. Super Liqueur IV on State St. has the best selection I've seen in Ann Arbor but isn't particularly cheep.

Only the NCAA could justify scholarship reductions as "deemphasizing athletics". How the hell is not paying for education deemphasizing athletics?
Thanks for the information.
