|8 weeks 1 day ago||It's all about Brandon||
It's all about Brandon putting himself, and the athletic department, above the rest of the university. He really did think he was the straw that stirred the drink.

High end jock sniffer.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||DAB: An elitist who believed in elitism||
He did everything he could to make Michigan elite, in his mind. Continuing to build athletic palaces, charging exorbitant fees to get the "Michigan experience", etc. I'm sure he saw himself, and his department, as above the people -- the hoi polloi are to be manipulated, not listened to. He fed the separation of athletic life from campus life.
I'm not so naive to think that athletes aren't special and don't deserve special treatment. But Brandon basically divorced his department from the overall mission of the university. Athletics are PART of campus life; Brandon wanted athletics to be its own fiefdom where he was lord. Goodbye, DAB.

Maybe if we were Purdue?

As mentioned above, we could have tried tackling. Also, MSU has chance to make CoFoPO and big victories help. No idea WTF with the spear. Dantonio is the Stannis Baratheon righteous prick of the B1G. Unfortunately he's a good coach whose teams have been kicking Michigan's asses. There has been no threat. At some point this will change but there's no moral high horse here. Keep taking the lumps and move on.

The release represents a strong forging of an important relationship with U-M students, who are an important strength of the University as it forges forward in its important mission of strong academics.

Start with Snow Crash then this, then Cryptonomicon. If you have hours to spend, go after his latest stuff.

3rd quarter offense
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Inexcusable||
If Brandon forced the MMB to wear "I'm Thinking Arby's" hats and do a halftime tribute to Kraft, it would be 100 times more acceptable than this. This is insulting to everyone, and it was done with foresight and intention! I'm normally a fan of patience but this weekend is the final straw.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I never f-bomb on the board||
But that's my reaction exactly. What a pile of horseshit. No mention at all of the head injury, and acts as if trainers are the ones responsible. Nussmeier for sure saw Morris woozy; not clear about Hoke. If anything I worry Nuss will be scapegoated and Fort BrandHoke refortified. F them all. Hoke is responsible and admits nothing. Not my idea of the 'Michigan Man'. Stephen Ross, are you still proud of this program?
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Nussmeier waved for Morris to get down||
From the view in section 41: After the hit and with Morris woozy, Nuss waved for Morris to go down and take an injury time out. That's when Morris waved off Nuss. Nuss clearly knew by apparently didn't have the authority or desire to pull him.

But if they're doing that with the numbers, put the shadowed lines on the flying wing on the helmet as well. More consistent look.

Sweet Polly Purebred I had no idea student tickets were so much. Hmm, looking at the inflation adjusted price for my first ever student season ticket that included games against Notre Dame, Florida State, and tOSU, it's about $125. Student tickets should be $25 a game, max.
|46 weeks 3 days ago||In effect, yes||
Take chart with whatever players you have. Then stretch or shrink horizontally so the chart ends at 25.
|46 weeks 3 days ago||He normalized all classes to a size of 25||
That makes comparisons easier within and across years. It discounts the impact of serial SEC-style over signing but the advantages of interpretation are enormous.
|46 weeks 3 days ago||Fantastic work||
The visuals really tell the story well. Just wish the story wasn't as good for tOSU!

Sad to see it go. Didn't their keg volume plummet after the new driver's license with deposit law/rule?

FWIW (not much!) his younger brother Rusty played at U-M from 88-92.

But the U may also be working with a research partner to conduct the research. On the email -- I mean embed it into the comment itself. Or your phone number. Ideally some human is going to go through and read every comment. If a customer specifically asks for a follow up in a comment, good protocol is to actually follow up. But there may be a resource issue. So if you leave your email/phone in the comment itself and you hear back then you know that a) a human read it and b) they care enough to follow up. If you don't hear back it doesn't necessarily mean that a) and b) don't apply, but it's a hint at least one of them don't.
|1 year 6 days ago||Who is hosting survey?||
Just curious what service UM is using. Not SurveyMonkey, I hope?
Some people believe you should only survey on what you can change -- and since the marketing team isn't going to change, say, the quality of the team or the schedule, they don't ask about it on the survey. I think that's shortsighted; you have to know what's driving people's opinions even if you can't change those factors.
For those commenting in the survey, I encourage you to put your email address in one of the comments (if you don't mind not being anonymous) and ASK someone to contact you and let you know they read what you had to say. And see what happens...

Now say something incendiary and selfish so you fit in.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Yes, it is embarrassing||
But not for the reasons you think.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Great season for MSU||
Well-earned trip to the Rose Bowl, and I'll be rooting for them. Glad to see the board overflowing with magnanimity!

3rd trip to the 'Shoe. Had seen a UM tie in '92 and loss in '94. OSU undefeated and #2. Seats down low right by the MMB. Buckeyes move the ball well in 1st half but settle for 3 FGs. Can feel tension in stands. Beginning of 3rd quarter, Griese to Streets, and a collective moan from the crowd. Michigan keeps pounding the ball, two more FGs, two girls teaching is a "Move the chains Move the chains MOVE-THE-CHAINS" chant, celebrating with band, looking up at a silent 'Shoe at the end of the game. Good times.

A few comments:
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Sorry, just saw this||
Head down to your local spirits emporium. Buy what you can for $20. Go home, pour out half into a tall glass, consume quickly, and dump the other half on your naked eyeballs. Feel them burn for 3.5 hours before rinsing. More enjoyable than watching the game!

Hoke. All other decisions were Hoke's. Changing coordinators is the favorite pastime of disaffected fans but just as often leads to worse performance as better...
