Do you prefer fast-setting or slow-setting? You know slow-setting amalgam was developed at the University of Michigan at 1011 N. University Avenue

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.

I mean are you that stupid
|1 day 20 min 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.

again, anyone who belittles this issue to a joke or feels that any part of it is comedic is a joke of a person themselves

she obviously didn't help with the gibbons situation either
|1 day 2 hours ago||probably the best argument i've heard all day||
While I thought Mary Sue was ignorant in desiring all on-campus residency requirement for all years. After observing some british housing models and their sucess, It seems we would be better off with this style.
|1 day 2 hours ago||"yeah/no"||
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 day 3 hours 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 day 4 hours 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 day 4 hours 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.

Although it does not apply here, you always have to remember Duke Lacrosse.
Thanksful I don't know the kids names anymore and just the program where the blame is deserved.

Can't be Heiko actually writing this blog, so tell me....
What kind of epithlium make up the parietal layer of Bowman's Capsule?

Is gone to a better place (banned) and was never around to see this crash of the program.

I remember you mentionned you went to pitt awhile back. How much were tickets at Pitt back in the day? Can't imagine they have changed much.
Were you there before they tore down the stadium? My dad took me to the last PSU-Pitt game way back when. Never realized what a big deal that was until I was in college.

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.
|5 weeks 4 days 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.
But like you said, I don't know anything and was just trying to bash DB. How is junior detective school treating you?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||maybe I miss worded it||
but I felt that our AD had more of a say in this choice and well it's sad that they invite a small school to come and tell them what to do. ~Whatever
|6 weeks 1 day ago||BYU fans||
From my experience are the most polite, nice, and well-manered in all the country. May have something to do with no-alcohol, but i think they'd be nice anyways
|6 weeks 1 day ago||boycott||
Hard to tell because of it being a night game. The sections were more empty, but I think it had to do more with people arriving on time more than anything.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||RIP Herm||
RIP Herm. I think he'd have something great to say right now

The Vichy France government used a similar tatic while France was under German occupation during WWII.

I've turned my back to every kick someone has ever made after an incident a few yrs ago, so I don't just do it when we're losing.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||justingoblue..||
OT and unrelated but have you been watching the Pitt games at all this year? Even though they've lost the past few games, I feel like Pitt has a great young team and the ability to make big waves in the ACC the next few yrs. I remember you said you had a connection there as well
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Another great thing about this whole scenario||
Penn State morons were slow and still defiant to denounce Patterno, their athletic dept, and their school in general.
This act sends a clear message that we care more about the well being of players, students, the community, and our school more than winning, fly-overs, and front-row mega fan sections.
Glad- That I WAS NOT and never will be associated with Penn State

Seems like the most bad guy of all time. Has some good in him, but we need Schlissel (Mary Sue) to go after his only son for him to come back to the good side

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. Most people, myself included, would have their day jobs (law practice, dermatology practice, etc), whic would be their primary concern. Doesn't mean he would succeed, but he would give it his all.
