Would actually apply here since the other fraternities should have turned in this fraternity (and any others) who commited these acts. Which should then go to courts etc.
|1 year 1 day ago||C'mon man||
I mean are you that stupid
|1 year 1 day ago||i'm sure we are trying to get to the same goal; however..||
You oppened yourself up and encouraged the attack when you ignorantly stated that nationwide fraternity oversight was the issue. Once you state something innaccurate and unsupported, you lose all credibility and open yourself up to person attack. In a large manner, this manner exists at a few schools, but kicking these orginizations off campus won't do any good if they secretly stick around (See ZBT and SAE fraternities at UofM). Secondly, you keep referencing the same article, which by all accounts is well written, but it is best to consider more than one arugment and data soruce. In science you learn that correlation does not equal causation.
Just beacuse this study reports that fraternity men have been found 3x more likely to commit rape does not necissarlily mean that actually is true. I'm not going to explain why correlation does not equal causation. however, it is much easeir to identify them than anyone else. Hence why it can be easier to identify fraternities if they have a national connecton. It does without a doubt show that fraternity orginizations are more likely to be identified, targeted, and prosecuted. In contrast fraternities and pledges at Yale (as mentionned in the article) were secret until the last 2 years. Hence the school and the study had no way to identify them until after the national orginizations and "fraternities" were re-instated.
The more control over these bodies the better. UVA has a cultural problem rooted in its administration, students, and alumni that enables fraternity members (and drug dealers) to perform this behavior. I apologize to you and any of your friends and family who were affected by the shams who carried out these actions.

Great way to start off an argument. Can't think of a more eloquent and even internet appropriate interjection.
In case you didn't notice the article discusses that objectification of women is a collegiate cultural problem not just a greek one
Moreover, I'm guessing you don't know anyone who attended UVA or any of the schools I mentionned. I'm guessing you never were inside a GDI house like I was where a rape happended. Finally by ignorant, short, and double worded response , I'm guessing you don't know a victim of assault like I do. Grow up "bro"
|1 year 1 day ago||reading the president's response||
It seems like she gets what the problem is and gets that there are a lot of factors at play.
Looking at this from a michigan standpoint, I think we benefit greatly from not having an in-state as rooted as UVA. That said, our residents are not the same as Virgina. But as again my experience tells me, in state students who are below UVA's standards usually "Know people" who can get them into the school. This kind of person maybe the worst you want at your school.
To complicate matters more, let's remember that UVA president Teresa Sullivan started as UofM's provost before 2010. hopefully, she is doing some good as a lot of these stories seem post her presidency.
|1 year 1 day ago||one may argue that the purpose of||
every male orginization (sports and academic included) is to ultimately sleep with women
except if that orginization chooses not to sleep with women*
|1 year 1 day ago||I lived down south and spent some time in colleges down south||
So that's what I bring to the table
Banning fraternities will place a temporary fix on this problem. However, secret male orginizations with different names or themes (dinner clubs for instance) will re-form and continue doing what they want to do. Having national fraternities linked to these clubs allows some form of identification and control. Several of the Ivy's realized this same behavior (Yale) and allowed national fraternities return to their school. You have to live down south or in a wealthy society world to understand maybe. Don't jump on this bandwagon and think all will be saved. chances are these fraternities will rise again and do what they want.
Michigan greek life is extremely well run, and I think removing fraternities could cause similar problems here. Heck what we have is so mild compared to even other schools in the area; we should be praized.

Alvarez used his Pittsburgh roots and connections to get Chryst that job. For this reason, Chryst was not considered for Wisconsin job when it oppened. I imagine Chryst would have some more wiggle room at this time, but he seems like a guy who is going to stick around at Pitt for a while.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||well maybe||
I'm from Pennsylvania. Know several people on both schools' boards. And I may have a grasp of what does and what traditionally does and does not happen with WPA small college football.
For instance, Grove City College have knock off-color altered UofM uniforms. They also used to hold the all-time NCAA rushing record and proud football heritage (dead now). It's ironic that this school has any similarities to UofM given that it won a Supreme Court Case to deny affirmative action impositions for all private schools while UofM lost their Supreme Court Case dealing with Affirmative Action. There are many people at GCC who view graduates from Slippery Rock as a "slimmy pebble"(little brother) in terms of academic and formerly (back in 50-70s) athletic little brother.

I think his sole focus would transition away from Mgoblog, centralize to being a regent, and make the campus the best place it can possibly be in every aspect.

But the PSU game would happen whether or not Brandon is in charge. Maryland was allowed into the conference under Brandon's vote and added for the wrong reasons in my opinion. Though in hindsight I believe Maryland (and Hopkins) will make the Big Ten a future power in lacrosse, I cannot find that the ends justify the means.

It isn't like the school is broke, so why would they not be able to hire a new OS if the old one and AD were fighting.
Heck I'm sure you could get one OS a week to volunteer at the games at the minimum. Seems like the idea about sports ruling the budget is winning, but I think the personal battle amongst egos is the largest issue here.

I saw that it started at 11 am and had 300+ ppl in line before midnight before the game.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Good point to bring up||
I thought about the Greek dominance that may actually increase. I never had problems that ppl discuss on the board post yesterday, but I have heard ppl already talking "We can just have pledges show up super early and save us our seats."
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Nice analysis Brian||
Maybe I missed it on my first read, but did u not address the seniors who are getting somewhat the short end on the stick because they aren't getting priority seats and basically were a part of the old system? What is your opinion on their claim if you have one? From my perspective, these are the only kids that should get priority seats.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||one day later||
I agree with you. I think the best option would be to grandfather the new system. I'm in grad school now, had my turn up front, but it bothers me that the kids the next 2 yrs are getting "screwed."
I also nvr had a problem with someone kicking me out of the seat I came to at the start of the game. Then again, I was a good person and sat in the seat I was assigned. So ppl complaining about getting kicked out of seat by drunk kids still broke the rules by not using their assigned seat.
Finally, I just don't understand why we didn't have any input on the system. I would be all in favor to change the current (now previous system). It was flawed, but the new one is also. They should have formed a committie with students and made a change that could be digested. Not one stuffed down throats over night by the man.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Much bigger deal||
tix are now 300
|2 years 30 weeks ago||You better believe I did||
I love this game more than anything in my life. I spent every single one in my car except the last Sugar Bowl. Driving doesn't cost that much if you know how to budget your expenses. I can show you how to live on a budget if you'd like.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||how about study time||
Did you ever consider some of us do that?
|2 years 30 weeks ago||sorry bro||
those lower bowl front row seats went to grad students a lot. That is the only pro I see to this system. First year grad students always got tix in the first 5 rows to sell tix. It also was supposed to curb ppl storming the field. There were some seniors, but as a senior and grad student, I sat in those front rows a lot and know there are way more grad students than seniors. I don't think grad students with zero michigan credits deserve that priviledge, and that is the only positive i see from the GA crap
|2 years 30 weeks ago||no it will be an issue||
people will blow off irrelevant games ie CMU because they won't want to show up and sit in the upper bowl.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Hey leprechaun||
Go back to South Bend. If you went to any of the bball games this yr, you would see that the students who showed up early never came to any of the other bball games, and didn't know the chants, how to act, or like the guy below said about Novak's reference. U are ignornant and have never experienced GA at Michigan.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||sorry sir||
You weren't in the student section at the bball games. You obviously didn't see that people came the night before to get in line. I had the time to do it once. Guess what? I saw people get trampled by a mob who pushed to get in the stadium first. Get some perspective or at least some info to back up your claim.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||it's not about showing up late||
It's about not having to show up at 11 pm the night before.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Important Note||
Students at PSU are also assigned lines according to their class standing. I went in 09 and used a friends ticket. He had a better section (closer to 50) than the underclassmen (closer to endzone).
|2 years 30 weeks ago||UR a duck||
I never was late for the band coming out. I studied my ass off. I worked jobs. I cannot go out and live outside for 12 hrs before a game because I have a life. PS- I went to every bowl game. I'm an awful fan. yeah right. I'm just studious, low on cash and time, and I love the team. I don't get rewarded buying tix for the past 4 years. You are short sighted and never thought about the situation. Get a life.

is not perfect. I am powerless to help or I would. I'd be happy to take over for Mary Sue if you are on the board.

Even Gary Coleman wouldn't ask what you are talking about in this scenario. If you don't have time to write it, then don't write it. Frankly, I don't think you can jinx anything, but I do not give you condolance on writing this piece.
In other news...who knew that Auburn an SEC school would pay players and modify their grades? I mean who knew?!!>>!>

IT's the Syracuse Orange now not the Orangemen as he called them. I'm happy he made that mistake.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||the cops||
did some good last night. I saw 4 fights or beginngings of brawls going on (1:30am) from the corner of South U and East U all the way to South U and South Forest. The cops seemed to be appropriately handling the situation for once. I will also note that there seemed to be a lot of ppl from out of town that came to AA as soon as we won (not surprising), so the cops did serve and protect.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Sometimes if you don't have anything nice to say||
You don't say anything at all.
I saw you at every game supporting the team like a good fan.
You didn't do anything wrong. I think people are having a tough time getting past the title of the post.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Let's say we pay these kids a salary.||
Why would they turn down money that will still come their way from the people who already pay them?
Sorry, but I will still come to the games even if we don't have the greatest athletes. I will care as much, and I will watch the same amount.
It's all about the Benjamin's baby.

Is Urban related to Jeff?
I'm sure the Ohio people would hate it if they were.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Look at it this way||
People were lining up at 1:30am today. In my opinion, it seems a little ridiculous to do that, but a lot of ppl feel differently. People are going to skip games. The bright side is that we don't have a tradition of leaving at half time, never showing up, or being empty at big games. We don't/didn't attend a blow off all your work institution where ppl can devote all their energy to athletic teams. The world and the University will keep turning.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||I grew up going to Big East games||
Today felt like a Georgetown-Syracuse-UCONN-PITT atomosphere. The kids and the University have turned things into a basketball school arena.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||I will buy this game||
It doesn't matter if Wayne Gretzky or John Wooden is on the cover. I will still buy it.

|2 years 39 weeks ago||Ohio compliance comercial||
So I see a message about doing something to protect student atheletes. Then there is a typical basketball play with a girl scoring a layup. then the other team doesn't seem to want to pick up the ball.
finally, the Ohio compliance dept. website and twitter account come up.

|2 years 40 weeks ago||Guns when I was there||
I know several people with guns, and the number has increased since the decision to limit semi-auto weapons. Some students have purchased guns just because the chances of being able to buy them may decrease in the future. With that said, no one lives on campus and owns a gun. the people who own guns use them for hunting purposes not for protection.
Personally, guns seem pretty normal to me because we grew up with video games. I hope that can shed some light on the issue for you.

As bad without the shoes. How often do you look at a man's shoes?
On the other hand, the guys wear different shoes from each other each game. hopefully, some do not wear these
|2 years 42 weeks ago||We should all be better||
We can't just let it go, or kids in the future will think it is right to post pics of themselves "making it rain" with "Benji's." Even if this money is not football related, this young man needs to understand he looks ignorant among other things due to this picture. I feel like there is only man who could say this better than I did. Well maybe there are others, but he would be the best.
His name is....

|2 years 46 weeks ago||Question about the 2nd half||
I have attended every game aside from this one this year. It seems that we lose a step in the 2nd half but regain our lead in the last 5 minutes. Did NW go on a run at all in the 2nd half?
