It may be your responsibility to take care of your daughter, but it is your daughter's choice on how she wants to keep you informed. Yes, you are paying the tuition, but that is between you and your daughter. The University has no right to provide information about your daughter to you with out her consent, assuming she is 18 or older.

I am as big a Harbaugh fan as anyone, but he was not a GREAT NFL player. Let's not get carried away here.
|1 week 4 days ago||Richardson hasn't signed yet.||
I am just saying there is a history at Stanford. We'll see what he does here.
|1 week 4 days ago||Are you sure?||
This sounds a lot like some of the cases early on at Stanford. Don't be surprised if the young man is asked to look elsewhere to play. I am not sure how I would feel about that. One side of me sees the total jerkiness of it, but another side says that if he can't play football why should Michigan give him a scholarship for it and the team suffer as well. Tough situation all around, hopefully it works out.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Just like the NFL||
Most players can't hit free agency for 4 or 5 years, and then they still might have to deal with the franchise tag. So you college players actually have more freedom.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Pipkins makes no difference||
Pipkins makes no difference for this class. He was a senior and thus does not open up a spot for the 2016 class.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||I generally agree||
The only issue would be if the most talented stop participating. For many, football becomes very difficult to watch when the best don't participate. And football is hard to watch if the QB play is sub par compared to the other positions. If you start to see the best athletes moving away from football, that will be a problem.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Can't thank you enough||
Much cheaper than stubhub. Tickets purchased!
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Seriously?||
Your title asks if it is a dead business model, not if others think the same way. Yes, there should be an increase in sales, but not sold out season tickets if the business model is dying. Seriously, go back and read your own post.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Ridiculous thread||
To say the business model is dying when they just had a huge increase in season tickets is crazy. Also, your entire alternative of buying on stubhub is dependent on season ticket holders as they are the vast majority of sellers. Just because it meets your needs does not mean there is a big change coming. Let's put some thought in before posting.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||That and||
That and I don't think one student can buy two student tickets. This plan has so many faults, it's hard to count them all.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||You didn't understand the policy||
The policy was never that they would lose their offer, it was that they would not be considered a commit. Essentially, Hoke was not saving them a spot if they were looking around. Thus non of your examples qualify.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Name one.||
Until the very end, this never happened
|6 weeks 6 days ago||The degree may not be what you think||
I have seen several say how valuable the Michigan degree is to these players, but I would be careful with that assumption.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Harbaugh||
And I would have said the same thing two years ago.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Verizon||
I recently went through the same thing. I decided on Verizon Fios, I get all the sports channels but not not much else besides the networks and AMC. This, along with 75/75 internet costs me just under $100 a month. About half what I was paying on directv and Internet before, though I was getting far more channels.
|8 weeks 1 hour ago||Why QB||
I think it is crazy how these kids continue to be used at QB. He has no future at QB. Why is he not being moved to Arab or Anwar for his own sake. This happens in college all too often, coaches need to do what is right for the athletes.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||That would suck||
I am not really anti-neutral site, but a game on the infield of a race track would suck.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Nike attack on Adidas||
The Wall Street journal seemed to indicate that Nike is going after Adidas' big contracts. Michigan's deal may be as much about hurting a competitor as it is about getting Michigan.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Length of contract||
How does the length of contract impact this price and compare to others. Michigan's contract goes through 2027 with an option through 2031. If this report is true, is this a contract that looks great now but in the second half of the contract looks more mediocre?
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed||
This is a normal meeting and I am sure Herman got similar feedback. It's highly unlikely that this was a one sided conversation.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed||
We've seen these rumors for months now. I will believe it when it is announced.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||This is the norm||
Most great athletes fall off the cliff suddenly. Especially pitchers. There are certainly exceptions, but they are exceptions.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Plus minus is deceiving||
A huge chunk of that is because of the power play, which he would skate the entire time. Caps had a great powerplay and Green didn't spend much time on the penalty kill for obvious reasons. He is worse in defense than ESPN is saying.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||I am a big Caps fan||
Green is not worth that amount of money. He is a good offensive defenseman and great on the power play. But he is a huge liability on defense and often seems to forget he is not a forward.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Simple||
Because than a coach may push a player onto the field that has no business being there. If Pipkins has had concussion issues, and we know he has, it may very well be in his best interest to take a medical redshirt.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Matthew McConaughey||
He had just won an Oscar for the very non rom com Dallas Buyers Club before season 1 started. Let's give him a little credit.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||You need to go back and look at Nike gear in 2007,||
That is nowhere near the Color Nike used
|11 weeks 2 days ago||At Michigan, you mean||
He's coached quite a few downs in his career as it turns out.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||It conducts or sponsors||
If the satellite camps met the "conducts or sponsors" clause, than it would also be a recruiting violation. So I think he is safe.
