It's tomorrow and this story is making the national rounds. Someone actually might ask it.
|3 days 3 hours ago||Laughed pretty hard just||
Laughed pretty hard just imagining the look on Dantonio's face if they opened the post-spring game presser asking if he'll go to Harbaugh's camp.
|4 days 3 hours ago||You also need to take into||
You also need to take into account how much people grow during their undergraduate years in Ann Arbor vs. Flint/Dearborn. Being around a ton of students who are all really smart and driven does a lot for one's personal growth, both intellectually and otherwise. Just because someone (and I have a hard time believing this is a large number of people annually) chose F/D over AA doesn't mean that they're at the same level at graduation as the students who went through four years in Ann Arbor.
|4 days 4 hours ago||Look man, I'm happy that you||
Look man, I'm happy that you were successful with a Flint or Dearborn degree. I never said one couldn't be successful with one. But yes, the Ann Arbor degree is different. What the piece of paper in your office says doesn't equate to what the degree means as far as educational experience and in the eyes of employers hiring college grads. The companies that recruit Ann Arbor and the positions available to Ann Arbor students when they graduate are far more expansive and better for overall career advancement than the positions you'd see Flint and Dearborn grads going into.
This isn't really an arguable point, so I'm going to stop now. Again I'm glad you found success with a Flint/Dearborn degree, but that doesn't make it the same as a degree from Michigan-Ann Arbor.
|4 days 4 hours ago||People really love to throw||
People really love to throw around andecdotal evidence whenever a discussion about academics comes up. "Open up more doors" is the biggest understatement of the century when comparing an Ann Arbor degree to a Flint or Dearborn degree.
|4 days 4 hours ago||And the same school as Larry||
And the same school as Larry Page and Stephen Ross. If you went to Dearborn or Flint, then you didn't go to the same school as these people. I don't see how that's debatable or controversial.
|4 days 4 hours ago||I mean that the Ann Arbor||
I mean that the Ann Arbor campus has a more intelligent student body. Saying this shouldn't offend people, it's the truth.
|4 days 5 hours ago||I don't understand this.||
I don't understand this. Dearborn and Flint are completely different schools. The quality of the student body, difficulty of classes, and the professors are all totally different. I don't see how you can just say they're all the same school and anyone who went to Flint or Dearborn is a Michigan alum. It's a completely different experience and education.

I've had a chance to talk to Mo a few times and he is really an awesome guy. Clearly very bright and cares a lot about what he does on and off the field.
|5 days 3 hours ago||How can you honestly||
How can you honestly attribute the commitments of Jones, Gentry, Ulizio, Higdon, Washington, Johnson, Wheatley Jr., and in a lesser sense Perry to Hoke?

Here's a link to the ESPN segment: http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=12736827
No reason to doubt him with Sam still saying that we're in good shape for Brown. Here's to hoping.
|6 days 6 hours ago||Yeah, this combined with Sam||
Yeah, this combined with Sam lead me to believe it's very likely that we'll get to see Caris at Michigan for one more year. Should be a lot of fun.
|6 days 8 hours ago||No, the direct quote on scout||
No, the direct quote on scout is "Yeah... gut feeling he comes back." This definitely makes me fairly optimistic.

2011, 2013, or 2014?
|1 week 3 days ago||How someone can appear on a||
How someone can appear on a segment called "Smart Football" and assert that Jedd Fisch is our OC is beyond me. He also clearly doesn't follow Michigan too closely as he never even named one specific player and stuck to gross generalizations about our actual team. He's probably also unaware that we're getting Rudock judging from his comments on our QB situation.

Yeah my mind was pretty blown the first time I tried Chick-fil-a sauce. It's like a whole new flavor.

It's all coming from private donations spearheaded by a $100 million gift from Mr. Ross.

I'm going to stop wasting negs on you, but no it and you are not okay. Show yourself out.
|1 week 5 days ago||I totally get where you're||
I totally get where you're coming from and have definitely been there on some issues. This one just doesn't get me as riled up as others, so I don't have the same perspective, but I don't doubt that you're probably right. If you haven't read Mahmood's initial article, by the way, it's awesome. Here's the link: http://www.michiganreview.com/do-the-left-thing/
|1 week 5 days ago||I kind of agree, and I have||
I kind of agree, and I have no respect for what she did to Mahmood in that circumstance, however I do appreciate evaluating everything case-by-case.
|1 week 5 days ago||The hot dogs and eggs were||
The hot dogs and eggs were because of a totally unrelated incident, in which Mahmood wrote a controversial article for the Michigan Review. It has literally nothing to do with American Sniper.
|1 week 5 days ago||The Omar Mahmood incident had||
The Omar Mahmood incident had absolutely nothing to do with the American Sniper screening, in fact he wrote a fairly conservative column for a libertarian campus publication, the Michigan Review. It's portrayed completely inaccurately in this quote.

They said he doesn't have a car, and he can easily afford that large 1br rental in Sacramento with his rookie salary.

He's gonna win many more majors in the future. Way more consistent than Rory. It'll be fun to watch.

Full Wild homerism all the way through. Might as well, we're playing as good as anyone right now and have the most points in the league since the all star break.

Jeez, Speith birdies the first. The guy is so good.

No chance, I'm sure Ann Arbor police would handle it. But as you know there's a different and mostly unfair standard for sexual assault cases, and universities don't want to be on the wrong side of Jezebel and the Huffington Post's pen.
