I don't know why but this Flint/Dearborn vs. AA debate is driving me crazy. It is like saying you went to Wisconsin when you attended Stevens Point or saying you went to Cal, when you went to Santa Barbara. They are different schools, with different admissions, different faculty, different missions and different types of students. The best argument I can come up with to prove the differentiation is that UM Flint or Dearborn students cannot attend classes at Ann Arbor.
By proclaiming them to be different schools, does not intrinsically diminish the two satellite schools. They just aren't "Michigan", as it is commonly refered to.
And for all those clamoring about their diploma just saying "University of Michigan" on it, it appears that has been rectified.

I turned them on to the muppets with the last 2 (Jason Segel) movies, but they mostly like the fact I can scream in the Animal Voice.

Ho win the WORLD have you been alienated by Adidas? Do you even know what that word means?
Also, just because Nike owns the color NAME "maize" doesn't mean it is substantially differenet from what we have been using with Adidas. I have many Nike products from late 90s through 2007 that have the exact same colors as Adidas stuff from the past 7 years. Nike doesn't own a copyright on any color, just the name of the color.
If we really want to "go back to what Michigan is supposed to look like", let's sign a contract with Russell Athletics, who supplied the jerseys prior to 1995.

I like getting rid of the dynamic pricing, but the face values in the table upsets me. With PSD, tickets and the processing fee, I pay $76.43 per ticket for seats in the endzone as a season ticket holder. The athletic department is now selling 3 of the 7 games (including homecoming) for less than that. It would only cost $10 more to buy individual tickets to all the home games than purchasing season tickets. That option would also make attending games like UNLV and Rutgers optional, which would save money. I would be even more upset if I were in the Victors sections, as those season tickets cost $151.43 each (substantially more than all of the individual tickets).
If the athletic department wants to keep season ticket holders, and not rely on individual sales to fill all of the games (let alone the lower tier ones), they need to take a long hard look at what, if any, benefit the fan receives from purchasing season tickets. I was likely not going to renew this year had the coaching situation not played out as it did, and am now not certain about next year. The opportunity to save $10 per year (if you WANT to attend every game) does not seem worth it, when one could save over $500 and still go to home opener, MSU and OSU...

Mine is only tangentially related to sports. My wife had been going to spin classes for several months, and a little before my 30th birthday, she and my mother-in-law invite me to come along. Wife warns me not to try and keep up with her, but the 12 year old in me won't let a girl out perform me. I bust ass for the 45 minute class, and actually enjoy it.

I realize your question was rhetorical, but it got me thinking. I believe Will Campbell would have been a useful commodity as a RS SR. He had 4 tackles his freshman year (2009), and I would have gladly traded that for a repeat of his his honorable mention all B1G 2012 in 2013.

There are no extraordinary qualities that justify paying an additional $30k annually to attend ND or NW (again, unless going into journalism, the. NW is a no-brainer).

The way underinflating assists in grip is by allowing the handler to modify the volume of the ball, thus why it doesn't feel like a rock.

Shouldn't the rule be changed to allow the school to pay for players immediate family, regardless of cost. I don't think you could influence a recruit by saying "if we go to XYZ bowl, we will put your parents up in the best hotel and fly them first class". It is only for approximately 1 weekend per year, and wouldn't cause a competitive imbalance.
