Their high school coaches and AAU coaches have probably a better appreciation of Michigan than maybe they had before," Beilein said. "It's a tough balance right now. Tim Hardaway and Trey Burke weren't really high-profile players, nor was Darius Morris, and all were high-profile players. "We're still looking at 'who is the best fit.' "

maybe the best combo of power and speed I can recall at Michigan in the last 25 yrs. Tho my favorite Wheatley moment was when he hurdled me for a dunk at CCRB in off season. Balls to the face, yo.
On second recollection, my least favorite Wheatley moment...

"hoisted", do you mean? a petard being a medieval incendiary, and those making them often were blown up (hoisted off the floor) by their own devices.

well done, sir.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||I share with you my unique indulgence||
i've loved bourbon ever since my dad n his brothers used to give me sips when I was 2 yrs old at christmas so's i'd be easily induced to go "tackle the wall, kid" and pass out for their amusement...then they'd bet on which present would break first when launched off the porch. true story.
but my favorite spirit is actually RYE whiskey, which speaks to me with a subtler sweetness and aroma. hard to find, tho. best one's i've had are Black Maple and Rittenhouse, but more easily found is Wild Turkey rye which is still lovely with or without a couple cubes.
go forth and surprise your friends with the wonders of rye.

I'm not sure the U has a legal basis in trademark or copyright law (or unfair competition, for that matter) to demand that you not use the winged helmet in a blog banner. The UM regents corporation owns dozens of trademark registrations for school emblems, logos, etc. (from the helmet design to "big house" to "Michigan Difference"). However, trademark law does not preclude fair uses of a mark, particularly non-commercial and non-competitive uses. One new media scenario recently developing a body of precedent is the use of marks within titles of blogs/domainnames. Generally speaking, if you are a fan or hater of Coca-Cola, Ford Trucks, iPhones, or Michigan Wolverines, you can use those names and often their logos in a fan site or gripe site. For the hundreds of non-commercial UM fansites and blogs, I would think that use of a Michigan-related logo is fair use so long as the viewer is unlikely to be confused (likelihood of confusion is the standard) that your site/blog is sponsored by / endorsed by / or otherwise commercially affiliated with the University of Michigan.
I'm curious as to how they phrased their C&D letter. I'd be surprised if it was a true demand to cease use of the helmet (instead of a friendly request) -- one should never tick off one's fan base...gripe sites are highly protected. And of course, you probably are considering the press access ramifications of not complying, even if you have two legal legs to stand on. I have a client with a similar scenario in reverse.
That said, the above is NOT to be construed as legal advice and is NOT being provided to you by a properly engaged and licensed attorney, cleric or shaman. I was never here.

The elder amongst us (and if '54 is his grad date....well...jeebus, i aint HALF that old) probably recognize the risk of this transition turning into a coaches carousel and project success more long term. I'm as big a fan as anyone, wearing 'the colors' on my sleeve everywhere i go (i went to a Frank Caliendo show in vegas - it sucked, fyi - and his band did a cowbell diddy...i shouted Go Blue from the balcony....there was one chuckle across the theatre). as much as i hate the shit i get from everyone here in Cali, i have to trust that Martin got the best hire he could at the time (let's not forget that he HAD to hire someone...it wasn't a matter of positioning for LeBron), trust RichRod's success rate, and trust the development of players. Its like building a business....profitability may take years. i give it 5 yrs before discussing whether his is a failed system for Michigan. as wolv54 said, what's the alternative? even bringing Saban in (likely) wont result in instant Big Ten championship. My only concern is whether Martin's gamble on the spread offense will pay off. did it have its day and is now gone (danielson) OR is it a long term points machine... i mean, if P Johnson can keep the wishbone alive in this day and age, i have to believe that RR's spread can evolve with the times to bear out his past success rate. that is all.
get off the lawn you kids and your newfangled instant gratifications and your drivin of maseratis at 21 with your bling and pimp cups and Cristal-filled plastic cups...!!!
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Seriously, how come ND avoids this kind of scrutiny??||
agreed that this is tabloid journalism based on someone naming a deep pocket in the hopes of squeezing some money out of a passive investor.
Sorry to insert this off-topic, but I can't start a new topic (stoopid points, LOL): ND now starts winter workouts at 5am, should there be any investigation into the propriety of THAT? Even if it turns out they're within the "hours per day/week", there must be a rule about when practices can take place. I mean, is it permissible for a coach to conduct practice at 3am? Midnight? If 5am is fine, then so be it. Sorry to instigate, but for the media to pillory Michigan without investigating other representative BCS schools' compliance with the "rules" really frustrated me.

That would be totally sweet!! IIRC, Sliced Bread was a terror at DT, often sandwiching quarterbacks a half dozen times a game! Running backs were toast! Let's not forget that game against ND when he grilled Brady Cheese on successive plays. I just Wonder rye we haven't been able to recruit someone of the same mold since him. Here's to Martin spreading his buttery justice over the nooks and crannies of our cupcake non-conf opponents!
