This is tricky... ND isn't a scary team like a Bama, but few teams are this year. What ND has accomplished given all the injuries is equally...actually more impressive than what OSU did last year despite losing two QBs. That said, barely beating a 3 win BC team in a "home" game isnt that impressive this time of the year. in fact, that's the story of NDs season: Just getting by against teams with major issues. Ask yourself, do you think this ND team would hang with Clemson again with certainty? Bama? That said, Iowa might be suspect. If ND handes Stanford, that could quiet the doubters... but I dont think this ND team has done much being half-way in two underperforming conferences.
Note: Before you run off and quote us on your other message boards, this comment comes from someone with several family members very active in ND alumni community. Even some of them agree with me. :-)

I also returned here after graduating from Michigan in 2006. (CRAP!) Anyway, I never realized as a kid, but there are so many transplants who move here. Now they have their collegiate alliances already, but a good number actually settle here (metro area) and raise kids to be Minnesota, Miami, Michigan, Wisconsin etc fans. So, while the point is fairly true, there is definitely a market for college football, considering NYC is the country's largest city.
I don't think i'm refuting anything from above, but i'm hungover as balls and need to make it look like i'm working right now...you're welcome.

Also a note: the disadvantage of applying this way is that you have to reveal a ranking of the consortium schools you're aplying to. I put Ross first over Tuck/Darden which certainly helped with Ross, but didn't help with Tuck/Darden.

You may want to also consider: Texas McCombs, Goizueta (Emory), Notre Dame Mendoza (network is quite strong) and Kelley (Indiana) if you're into B1G schools.
3. What's some advice you have in choosing programs, getting admitted, making the most out of B-school, etc. Take the trips with classmates... the MBA is at least 75% about the network (IMO). Join crazy/unrelated groups... I play rugby (for the first time) with my school- love it!

Oh, totally agree. This one is Wisconsin's to lose. I really just meant that if this were week 1, that 3rd stringer would have likely led Ohio State to the same record (maybe, just maybe one loss vs MSU.)
|51 weeks 6 days ago||Does anyone know how does the||
Does anyone know how does the search work exactly? Like is it industry standard/expectation for an AD reach out directly to the coach/coach's agent, or does a coach's agent ever reach out to AD?
|51 weeks 6 days ago||Unfortunately, you might be||
Unfortunately, you might be right. I mean they replaced their heisman candidate QB (Braxton Miller) with a heisman candidate QB. Urban Meyer runs a system, Ohio State recruits in such a fashion, and their schedule typically affords them the opportunity to break in new QBs. That said, I don't think the playoffs is a "break a QB in situation" but the point still stands.
Also, the Urban Meyer hype machine will be in full force if they win the B1G title game. We all know how good he is at that.

I'm guessing they were expecting to get fouled so they ....ah fuck it. No idea either. On another note, thanks Dan Dakich for the jinx.
I'm actually quite pleased how Michigan overcame adversity and struggle toward the end of the 1st half and start at the 2nd half.

Well done video. I'm guessing it's made by the AD... if so, does that mean to brace for keeping Hoke for one more year? //ConspiracyTheorist
|1 year 4 weeks ago||I really appreciate what||
I really appreciate what you're trying to do here, but ultimately the only comparison I can see is that we both have moderately solid defenses with anemic offenses. Oh, and both teams lost to Utah.
QB situations were somewhat different. DG has stayed throughout all this nonsense. Mallett left.
You mention Year 1 vs Year 4... but think about it- we were in the process of overhauling the offense. By now, this offense should have had an identity but instead, we've been inconsistent on offense for 4 years now. I don't see how the position coaches.
This team is better than the 2008 team, but we shouldn't have to be comparing them.

You're out of your element... i never talk smack about students, but the fact is he's never thrown a TD pass in his career. DG has way more tools in his toolkit than Morris has,.. could be an experience thing, but Morris isn't ready yet.

I've seen you make this case a couple of times. While I don't necessarily disagree, I'd like to inject one potential question: Do you not think that JH is so polarizing of an individual that he could eventually piss off former players and other folks and then add to this weird tension within the Michigan community?

(Caveat, I'm not saying Brady Hoke should be gone.)
Depleted roster is a little bit of a stretch though, considering he won a sugar bowl in his first season as coach at Michigan. Also, how many seasons in will he have to be before this team is "his"? I'm not really sure i agree with you.

This sucks! (Well, sorta) I'm headed to ND for the game. I'm currently a 2nd year at Columbia Business School, and this is precisely the kind of event I would love to have gone to. Hope we go 2-0 on the day. Go Blue! Beat ND, Beat the Lions!

Call me nuts, but I think the 2007 team would beat the sugar bowl winning 2011 team 7 out of ten times. (I know i know... struggle against mobile QBs).
Actually, the more I think about it, those would be fun games to watch. In many ways I feel that 2011 season was a gift from the football gods to say sorry for those rose bowl matchups against Texas, and USC.
If we'd only blocked that FG at the end!

Heading up to lake placid NY with my parents and siblings (5 and 3) before I head to Seattle for my summer internship. I sound like I'm 18 but I'm 29. I just apparently live like a college student. MBA life is kind of awesome at times, minus the debt and no income part.

I went to a rutgers game a few years back. My memory is a little fuzzy after this MBA Rugby world cup at Duke (shameless plug), but I have to say i thought i remember taking a train out to NJ, then still having to take a shuttle bus from the train station to High Points Solution Stadium. Remind me, are we really not going to play at Metlife? HP Solution stadium is super small.

I have to say, lots of international folks i've met are intrigued by american football. I'm a diehard baseball fan, but you have to admit, football is just easier to understand and watch.
I'd say one additional challenge though, would be athletes (or the NFL) wanting players risking injury for the Olympics. Also, how many games can you get in? It takes a few days to recover after a game.

Not necessarily, he has to alter his running stride to avoid the trip up, which, impedes/obstructs his ability to run as he otherwise would have been able to. In theory, here he would have to high knee or leap over the fielder.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||I really don't think this||
I really don't think this call is controversial at all. It's only controversial for Red Sox fans. By any objective measure, the call was spot on. For anyone thinking the runner tripped on purpose, do note he turns around and moves forward, so he didn't run into the 3rd baseman intentionally, in my view.

I want to see the boys making big hits on defense, and swarming the ball. Offensively I just want to see the o-line get push (obviously) but i want Devin Gardner to be quick and decisive. Same for Fitz at RB, I want him to have and choose the right gaps. I want to see a back up RB emerge as well.

It was Jehu- and that was right in front of me. I think the ball had more zip than he thought. to be fair, i also thought Devin floated it, but in reality it was a tremendous pass, Chesson just needed to continue with his route.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Absolutely seemed to be the||
Absolutely seemed to be the case. After Desmond Morgan had that game saving interception (IMO), i started a chant "Des-Mond Mor-Gan..." No one bit. I kept doing it for at least a minute. That to me, was the most frustrating of all. One guy did bring a cowbell, but i only heard him use it a handful of times. (Maybe 2-3 times.)
It was surreal that our Michigan Wolverines were playing on the east coast... I can't wait for Rutgers next year. My friend's dad (donor @ Rutgers) is saying they're talking about moving the game to Giants Stadium- which I think would be smart.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||For those who watched on TV-||
For those who watched on TV- can someone explain what the atmosphere looked like, what our O-Line looked like? From my seats it was hard to tell why we struggled to run the ball.
I posted in another thread but it was at least 50/50 michigan, but we as a fanbase did not bring it- we needed the band there.
My Cool Starry Bra story: I saw buses being escorted to the stadium... and then a regular car following them (By regular i mean white infiniti).... the driver was none other than Dave Brandon.. or someone who looked exactly like him.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Don't be fooled, It was at||
Don't be fooled, It was at least 50-50 michigan, but these Michigan fans were like the odd cousins you have that you rarely see. For example, I was working hard to get chants going, but no one was biting... it's as if they didn't know them. I told fans next to me to start wearing Maize in the future- it stands out on TV, and it's easier to band together etc.
We really needed the Michigan band there to bring the noise and some cohesion among our fans. The Cheerleaders were decent, but we really struggled until the fourth quarter (as a fan base.)
Their fans kind of suck to be completely honest. Not violent or anything but not hospitable- you get that cold northeast stereotype thing going.
tl;dr: Our fanbase/alumni showed up in person, but left a lot to be desired in terms of making noise. UConn surprised me with how engaged they were, but their fans are meh.

In the middle- of the B1G? I strongly disagree. This isn't necessarily a national champ contender, but what big ten teams are better than Michigan based on what you've seen thus far? Ohio, and...? We had a miserable showing last night, but should that really outweigh the first two games entirely? Even if ND isn't as good as we thought they were, they're not worse than Akron. This young Michigan team was NOT prepared for this game- period.
