My brother-in-law and wife's uncle have tickets and a sweet tailgate and MSU, so we go every year it is in EL. this year, the uncle is giving the wife and me tickets to the game as well, so as much as I would prefer to sit at home drinking and get on with my weekend, I'll be stuck in EL all day Saturday, and hungover Sunday.

If you don't drink, might I recommend some recreational drug use, or perhaps a lobotomy?
|4 days 21 hours ago||Incorrect. We must first go||
Incorrect. We must first go through i, then into negative numbers, until we reach -273, then we can go back up. This year, I am predicting the score to be 49-pi, next year, we score e, then the year after 0, then i, before we start negative nunmber. So we've got that going for us.

Ok, how about someone under his direct supervision actively endangered the health and well being of a student athlete and he and his subordinate attempted to cover it up. It does not matter whether he did the actual deed, he is responsible for the department.
This is the same reason VA secretary Shinseki was forced to resign. He didn't actually perform the acts (and non-acts) that the department did, but was held responsible for them none-the-less.

Short answer-no. Long answer, maybe, but highly unlikely, and not tied to his injury. He could theoretically have a family issue, precluding his parents from traveling and/or requiring his presence, and he could then transfer to a school within 100 miles of his home and petition the NCAA to be immediately eligible. Again, has nothing to do with his current injury, or his ability to obtain a "medical redshirt" down the line.
|6 days 17 hours ago||He can't "just redshirt" this||
He can't "just redshirt" this year, as he has already played in a game. It only takes one snap to burn a redshirt. Now, if he were to stay at michigan for 3 more years, and wish to return for what would be a fifth, he could apply for (and likely receive) a medical hardship waiver (which is referred to as a medical redshirt colloquially).

Just try sending in the PSD for whatever section you want tickets in. That is what I did ($50 for each when i did, now $75/each seat for cheapest) and you will likely be offered the opportunity, especially if Hoke isn't fired.

It was "under the lights"
Morris was on campus
The team we are playing has red and white for colors
So it has to be Notre Dame 2013, right?
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||It would actually be 3||
It would actually be 3 games/4 weeks (2-4 now, we could lose next 2, be 2-6, then win out and be 6-6, which would probably get us a trip to...Detroit!!!!!)

Last I heard, Brain Cole was still solid, despite what was happening on the field and in Schembechler Hall. Has this changed?

I agree with your sentiment, but WD is a Michigan student now.

Um, he's sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Jabrill pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

Done. I was most impressed that I remembered my password, having graduated in 2001 and all.

What? You may want to try typing in sentences, or at least coherent snippets.

I needed that.

Minnesota - 2 pick 6 w/2 point conversions
Michigan - Def or return TD, 2 FG (from outside of redzone) and their QB tries to throw a deep out from there 42 yard line, but throws it backwards out of the endzone for a safety.

After ruminating on it overnight, I agree that it would be best for this to go away.

I was actually thinking back to when I was a student, and there would be 4-5 planes circling the stadium even during the game. I particularly remember the ads for the Vu.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I lke your line of thought.||
I like your line of thought. I just don't know if it is reasonable to try an express frustation with the AD while supporting the Team via skywriting (and as far as I know, banners aren't allowed to fly over/around the satdium any longer). I am open to any suggestions people may have to get this message across (maybe a giant noodle with the message painted on it, or we could have someone dress up like the Arby's curly fry mascot and protest outside the regents meeting). I thought this was a way for the little guy who can't donate thousands of dollars (let alone millions) to have a collective voice.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks||
Thank you for the thought provoking response. This is out of anger and frustration. You are probably correct about the big money donors having Schissel and the Regent's ear, but how is someone without that kind of money supposed to get their voice heard. That was my thinking behind the public display.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I think a personal attack is a little unwarranted||
I do happen to be an alum and a season ticket holder. I have been to every game since I was able to purchase season tickets in 2008. I have cheered for the team, even from the confines of my home, which is where I watch every away game, because I cannot be around other people when Michigan is playing (unless they are fans too). I support the players fully, and have even talked many in my section into NOT booing (when that has happened recently) because I do not want it to be directed at the players.
All that being said, I cannot, and will not, support the athletic department, when in my view it is being monetized (above and beyond the general level college football has in the last couple decades) and is run like a for-profit corporation. This is not about losing, it is about the direction of the program the inability of the current AD to realize the department is built and funded by the fans.
Not to get into any sort of politics, but your argument is eerily similar to those who say that disagreeing with a war is akin to not respecting or supporting troops. they are two entirely different animals.

Make sure you don't overfill the balloons though, they will tend to explode when you throw them.

I'm not sure how well you understand how libel works. This message would by no means express anything about anyone's character, it would merely be expressing an opinion on actions an elected body should take.
