They could always try to list ONLY the pronouns that the students are allowed to choose from, but when 'ze' is supposedly an accepted pronoun there's no way to NOT offend somebody by leaving off their pronoun of choice. Most professors are probably just going to drop using pronouns entirely (presumably, even neutral pronouns aren't allowed because they're not "preferred" by the student) to avoid any issue; as somebody who has been an instructor at multiple levels, that'd be my solution.

It might as well be... It means I'll get home after we've already demolished Colorado and the second stringers are closing out the first half. It also means I don't get any pre-game fun even if it is just at home.

I'm working until 1530 central so its coffee for me.

Steve, on these recruiting trips we often hear about parents coming along. We also hear about the scandals at Miami and Louisville involving all kinds of impermissible benefits. When on the recruiting trips, where are the parents housed relative to the recruits and what do the schools do to keep parents and recruits busy into the evenings?
|23 weeks 1 day ago||I finished high school and||
I finished high school and went to college in Florida. I wouldn't call January and February beautiful down there. All too often its 40-50 degrees and the rain is miserable. I'd rather just go back to Michigan and have the snow... at least then I can still do sports albeit winter sports. (Maybe that's why I moved back to the Midwest)

|23 weeks 5 days ago||"Police" and "enforce" are||
"Police" and "enforce" are two separate things. I'm sure rival fanbases will do the "policing" for the NCAA, but the real question is will the NCAA actually do anything to enforce the rule when those fans send in plenty of evidence?
|23 weeks 5 days ago||I know this is a Michigan||
I know this is a Michigan sports blog, but with the community we have and all the diverse interests, I'd really like to see at least one thread dedicated to "lesser followed" sports. I'm not a huge sailing fan, but i know there's going to be interesting things happening while I'm punching the clock working.

Red's may or may not be good, but I can tell you for sure that there are some really good Michigan breweries that will definitely help you better appreciate beer. New Holland, Bell's and Founders all make exceptional brews.

Since getting married all of my shoes have a purpose. Apparently I need a pair of black boots to wear when I'm wearing black pants. A pair of brown shoes for when I'm wearing khakis. Black flip flops for black shorts, etc. Who knew there were that many different kind of shoes? My biggest choices are which pair of running shoes to buy to actually, you know, run in.

This is the best response to threads that are created for "old" topics.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||They claim that every day in||
They claim that every day in the US that three breweries open and one closes. I think that just means that I have to have at least two beers... correction, two GOOD beers, every day.

I'm a much bigger fan of this because Johnson already is a midfielder normally anyway. Besler showed he's pretty solid at left back and with Johnson supporting him, that gives us a lot of speed and support on both wings.

It all depends on what you're asking for.
Orange and Blue is always a great color scheme!
Black and Yellow is great as long as you're not talking college football.

Coahces will just send kids vines with coaching points and film break downs. The GA coaches in charge of video breakdown just got a TON more work...
|49 weeks 2 days ago||Florida Gator Experience||
I went to plenty of Gator games at the Swamp while I was a student at UF during the Leak/Tebow years. People are parked anywhere they can find a spot: streets, lawns, parking lots, you name it. The only lighting is whatever people have chosen to make available or the streetlights if there are any. Very few people are actually parked in the school lots and those people probably paid TOP dollar. We played Vanderbilt at night (lets not talk about how Cutler took that game to OT).

Being a Gator alum living in Iowa and raised in MIchigan, I do agree that I'd rather not move back to Florida. But Gainesville and Melbourne are two of the few areas I'd actually consider moving back to.

The in-laws and all the aunts and uncles are at my house. I'm at work. Its much quieter here.

I graduated from the SEC and spent a lot of time around "S! E! C!"... as much as I detest Michigan State, please, please, beat Alabama so I can stop hearing that chant. (then they can promptly lose in the title game)
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Cheers to that!||
Cheers to that!
|1 year 5 weeks ago||The biggest reason the Gators||
The biggest reason the Gators won't necessarily be driving up the tickets is our late season depression... losing like we did to FSU and Alabama has certainly taken some of the luster off a season that FAR exceeded expectations. But since Orlando is only a short two hour drive from Gainesville, there'll still be plenty of Gators doing all they can to get tickets.

Spurrier proved that South Carolina has a chance to do well in the division. They'll always probably be rather cyclical, but its the best they can probbly hope for. Now if only my Gators can actually keep a good QB on the field, they're poised to be a force in the East.

He did get us to click on this. And I even commented-- which is an extreme rarity. Maybe I'm just a sucker for satire and comedy.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||When I was attending UF||
When I was attending UF during the Leak/Tebow years we'd do this chant after every home win. Listening to it reverberate through Ben Hill Griffin Stadium was pretty darn impressive.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Early enough...||
Its early enough the kid can at least go looking around for another school. Its much better than having the kid move into a dorm room and then pulling his scholarship. Great? Certainly not, but this young man has a chance to decide his future before its too late. I'd rather have that than he has to try and sort things out after he signed his LOI or showed up on campus.

31-30 Michigan. Way too close for comfort, but Funchess in the endzone in the waning minutes.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Respect||
So the head coach wants the students to be respectful, look presentable in public, maintain a living area that is both presentable and safe, as well as wanting his athletes to be respectful to women. At least that's my takeaway from the list. And as much as we might think it seems odd to write it down, its a whole lot easier to enforce if you write it down and hand it to the kid. Plus, when they're being recruited, they know about these rules and they have the choice to attend the school or not.
