I always like to hear how other UM classes (both before and after mine) utilize their graduation time to express the prevailing socia-political trends of that time.
I'm curious how those in your class would think of Nelson Mandela these days. With the availability of more more facts and objective analysis, I suspect it would be very different.

Here are three I had in my vicinity many years ago
|1 week 3 days ago||I agree with you for the most part||
I think what has driven much of the frustration is that our recent success has not impacted us one way or another (bad or good). We thought we might be able to get better (i.e. higher ranked) recruits, but we didn't. We also have not been getting bad recruits either (although some may disagree).
Additionally, not making any tournament this year didn't help.
Overall though, it just seems weird that we really haven't be able to take advantage of our recent success.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Another thing to consider that is slightly more long term...||
...is that we are admitting fewer and fewer in-state students who would presumably be bigger Michigan fans and more apt to buy student season tickets compared to their out-of-state counterparts. I know this wasn't a major impact to the drop last year, but I think this is going to be a more systematic phenomena going forward.

|4 weeks 2 days ago||So what our saying...||
...no white people? Perhaps a list of the top 20 gritiest people to play sports would be more suitable. :)
|4 weeks 3 days ago||What injury to Pipkins?||
Was it posted here before? I must have missed it.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Its hard to tell whether or not $150 is enough||
Take these points into consideration
1. You can imagine that ticket demand is at an all-time high. So, will there be an remaining tickets this year? I doubt it, but possible.
2. If someone donates more than you, they will likely get priority.
3. The $150 is a donation, so its tax deductable.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed||
IIRC, we had until June 1 in previous years.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I could be convinced otherwise...||
....but I didn't mind dynamic pricing. Most people can't but tickets directly from the school, so going to a game likely means buying from a friend or ticket scalper. Having dynamic pricing allows for the school to reap the benefits (or pitfalls) of changing prices, not the ticket scalper. I would prefer it that way. Like I said, I can be convinced otherwise.
This is probably one of the best years in many for Michigan to reap the benefits from dynamic ticket pricing. Having a nive home slate and HARBAUGH and all means tickets are probably going to be priced higher this year. This is clearly something Brandon would not do...and I like that.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Some random MSA musing||
I remember Hidecki so so well! Those signs were as well known as Faz of Hello Pizza.
I knew Trent Thompson pretty well. He was the MSA President a couple years before. There was some controversy around his election, but he was a solid guy through and through.
Dear Lord. I remember BAMN and their intolerable leader, Jessica Walter (or something like that). To this day, I cannot support their cause simply because they were such assholes.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Interesting||
Type in Zoltan Kovacs in to Google. Its quite a common name in Hungary, apparently.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Bo Ryan has been to 2 final fours with Wisconsin||
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Amen!||
This was something my friends and I were talking about. We think JB has maybe 5 years at most left before he retires. And we think that JB will continue to drive the program upwards and onwards. The next guy we hire might be the biggest more crucial decision in our program to date.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I didn't say Izzo was a better recruiter per se||
I just think Izzo is a more consistent recruiter. He has has some injuries, some very significant (maybe not as bad as us), but he always seems to plug someone else in, teach them up and look good doing it. His results speak for himself.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Losing those guys...||
...certainly were a big factor in our results this season. More consistent recruiting would remedy the situation to a certain extent. Remember, we were playing like ass before we lost Walton and Levert.
Let me be clear, I like JB and I don't want him fired - I want him here as long as he wants to be. Still, its hard for me think that we couldn't piece something together to get into the NIT.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I can respect your opinion||
Overall, I think JB is a superior basketball mind compared to Izzo, but JB just doesn't recruit consistently enough. This is where Izzo is clearly dominant.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||yea. A big fat pussy||
|5 weeks 1 day ago||And Izzo kindly returned the favor this year||
He's won 3 straight against us.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Honestly||
I can't help but think that Izzo could have done some real damage with our team this year. Maybe not win the big ten, but at least get us into the NIT (maybe NCAA).
Sorry, it's time like this where I'm reminded that we just need to wait for Izzo to retire before we can claim any sort of superiority of MSU.

|5 weeks 4 days ago||With regards to business school...||
...I agree for the most part. I went to Ross for MBA and it was the best decision of my professional life. Many JDs came over to Ross because they figured out the shit of having a career in law.
The only negative is that Ross (like most top MBA programs) don't really accept students right out of undergrad. Gotta get about 5 years of good experience.

A dash of pepper is going to make for a spicy experience

Can't. Stop. Watching
|7 weeks 2 days ago||No worries man||

It was Daniel Horton
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Big bond fan, here||
I can go for days about this. (Just like I can go for days to convince people that Roger Moore was the best Bond). The way I see it, its who play's the character that makes it. Blofeld was played by 4 people. Personally, I think Telly Savalas was best.
On the flip side, I thought Michael Lonsdale was phenominal as Drax. The movie was average and I didn't like Drax as a villian per se, but it was a good performance by the Michael Lonsdale.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Bloomberg?!||
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Wait||
Dontcha know that every MSU got into michigan as well, but decided to go to MSU instead.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Whoa||
Please remind where anyone in this thread (including myself) said that JB should be fired.
