Accelerated law school programs are a horrible idea if you actually want to practice law. My understanding is that you take classes year round, meaning you can't really clerk or intern anywhere, so you graduate with no practical skills and no contacts.
As far as career stats, for recent classes, roughly 44% of law school grads actually get a permanent job that requires bar admission within nine months of graduating. That includes people doing document review, which is like the Wal-Mart of law jobs. If you have a degree in hard sciences or something and want to do patent law, go for it. Otherwise, I'd urge you to seriously consider it and read some of the law school scam blogs.

I was in the class of '11. At our bar admissions ceremony, the chief justice of the Ohio Supreme Court spent half her speech listing all the things we could do with a law degree even if we never worked as an attorney. It was one of the most depressing moments of my legal career.

If you do a golfsmith fitting, make sure it's with the GolfTech guys and not just one of the sales people.

Get a set of Ping Eye 2s. They're usually under $200. They may not be the newest and shiniest, but they're still great clubs and won't carry the stigma of department store/top flight if you worry about that sort of thing.

TBDBITL's director being fired was a result of political infighting over who controlled the budget. The women's hockey coach is just a jackass.

OSU-Michigan will never be a night game. Too cold and too many potential problems.

Jones is from Cleveland. Hyde is from Cincinnati; he didn't move to Florida until his sophomore year of high school. Pretty much the entire O-line is from Ohio.

Iowa is in the other division, so how would it help Michigan get into the B1G championship?

Are you sure you're not confusing Amir Williams with another team's center?

I never liked Charles Woodson, personally.

What do you expect from student government?

I think it says Mike Sullivan needs a hobby that doesn't involve stalking underage kids. Seriously, this is some creeper shit right here.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Do people actually say things||
Do people actually say things like "That test raped me?" In seven years of higher education, I don't think I ever heard anyone use that phrase.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Recruiting services have||
Recruiting services have really damaged college sports. 20 years ago, no one would have heard of Mike Weber, Chris Clark, or Torrance Gibson until they saw playing time. Now we have people paying for subscriptions so they can better stalk high school kids.

Does Michigan not have a barratry statute?

Not to mention that courts generally can't set aside arbitration decisions unless there was gross misconduct by the arbitrator.

So what, as soon as a coach starts looking at other jobs, they should stop recruiting?

OSU and other B1G schools have been doing 4 year scholarships since at least 2012. http://www.cleveland.com/osu/index.ssf/2012/01/big_ten_offering_recruits...

Well, this pretty much confirms what I've been saying for a couple of weeks. OSU will be going with a 3QB backfield next year.

Probably not. See United States v. Drew, 259 F.R.D. 449 (C.D. Cal. 2009)

IIRC, a person becomes a booster as soon as they buy tickets to a single game or makes any contribution to the school's athletics department. I think that even membership to an alumni association can qualify if the association promotes athletics.

There were allegations back in 2008 that there were bogus independent study courses for student athletes at Michigan. "
"The average grade for 21 athletes who took 32 graded courses from Hagen, 25 of them independent studies, was 3.62. Those athletes had a grade point average of 2.57 in their other classes, according to transcripts reviewed by the newspaper."

Back when PSU was an independent, Paterno got to hire whoever he wanted as an official. He would hire Don Guman, whose son and grandson were both PSU players. They deserve every bad call they get, just for that. http://www.nytimes.com/2002/10/19/sports/on-college-football-paterno-got...

I'm not sure what makes you think OSU would protect Meyer; we fired Woody for much less, and he was more of an icon than Urban will ever be.
The difference between OSU fans and Penn State fans is that the vast majority of OSU's assholes are Biglots Buckeyes who only root for OSU because there's no NFL team in central Ohio. The alumni are embarrassed by them and they have no say in how the university operates. Penn State's assholes are the alumni.

Was the university's senior management aware of the guy for an extended period of time, during which they did nothing?
