It's not just Nike. It's the University, through MDen, ensuring students cannot sell or profit off their likeness per NCAA guidelines.

This is the most correct answer, and lots of places will sew/embroider/screen print a name on the back of a jersey.
TECHNICALLY MDen cannot (and cannot sanction such) due to the NCAA.
That said, if you want something accurate, go to eBay, not MDen.
Harbaugh's Nike jersey when he played here did not have a Jumpman.

There's a fantastic bed and breakfast called the Margarita Inn in Evanston. I've stayed there a number of times.

Depending on certain things, your 94 might not have OBD-II; the computer is much, much simpler/stupider, and a Cold Air Intake (CAI) won't automagically have its colder air regulated/have your air/fuel mix adjusted accordingly.

My first car was a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am SE Coupe with the V6.
I *loved* that car, right up until the rear rocker panels started to rust away.
It had a screaming 170 HP.
There was an asshole at my high school who dickwaved about his Grand Am GT 4-door, same-ish years, loved to talk shit about my lowly SE.
Do you know what the difference between the GT and the SE was, besides some exterior trim?
+5 HP. I kid you not.
Alternately, the ladyfriend's 2007 Toyota Camry is a trooper. Nothing seems to go wrong with it, and if something DOES, it doesn't seem to ever be that concerning or difficult to fix.
Compare that to the 1996 Audi we just sent to the biergarten up in the sky -- something was drastically wrong with the thermostat; and to replace the thermostat you have to assume ze service position: remove the front bumper, drain and remove the radiator and fans...

If this had been *any other situation* but Nassar, this would be run of the mill "yup, they used service X number of times when they were allowed to use it Y". Shockingly, people are asked to pay the difference.
That's my point.

Flaming hot take: this is a non-story.
Student goes and uses service (beyond what is covered in tuition).
Student is billed accordingly.
Debate amongst yourselves if you feel that MSU should *refund* the student due to MSU's involvement/negligence in this particular situation.
But the initial act of billing is (again, debate amongst yourselves the integrity therein) just how such healthcare systems work.

I had a Mike's Hard Lemonade during a high school grad party (my parents do not know this fact).
I then had a Guiness as my first ever "real beer" during freshman year of HS. Boy was that ever a rude awakening. I couldn't understand why anyone would drink that for fun, and the only way I was able to finish the 4-pack was using copious amounts of vanilla ice cream.
Experimented with lagers, which were _okay_, albeit a little gross. Still don't much care for Heineken.
Then I tried Blue Moon, which was my gateway to Oberon, which was my gateway to craft beer.
Now I'm a craft beer snob.

I'm not touching the air intake. IMHO the only benefits to a new air intake are if you also tune you car. Not gonna bother with that.
And yeah, I've been dealing with electrical system wonkiness for the last week. Hence, new alternator.

You can buy special sheets of vinyl and literally wrap it around your body panels to get a whole new look while preserving the original paint (theoretically).
When you're "done" with it, it just peels off. Or if it's damaged and you need to replace it.

Here's a chrome-wrapped Lambo.

Miata Is Always The Answer.
I picked up a '91 a little over a month ago with ~170k on the odo and a service history of "probably not".
Since then, I've spent my weekends getting her ready for track days. New belts, new alternator, new battery, new spark plugs and wires, new wheels and tires, new roof, new mirrors, a quick-release steering wheel, shift lights, and a racing seat. Up next is new brakes and stainless steel lines, and some thermostat work.

2012 - Ohio State: For some inexplicable reason, Michigan's playcalling shifts at the half to a run-run-run-punt, primarily up-the-middle strategy.
2013 - Ohio State: Devin Gardner comes out of our last time out to attempt a two-point conversion to win the game...in the exact same formation as prior to the called time out. Thanks for nothing, Borges -- everybody in Michigan, Ohio, and freakin' China saw that coming.

|09/01/2016 - 4:21pm||Absolutely. Every scheme||
Absolutely. Every scheme would have to adjust constantly.
They could afford to blitz entirely differently, or rush different linebackers, or have more d-line pressure, and our QB's pocket would fold more often, or the RB would have nowhere to go.
The *best case* scenario is a spare safety doing double coverage on a WR and the rest of the play was a ground play. But the smart move defensively is to always rush more linemen/linebackers.
Offensively? Same concept applies. That's one more route to cover with one fewer person. That's one WR that is ALWAYS open. Or perhaps one more olineman pushing against us. Sacks become much harder. Holes for RBs get wider.

If they stay away from booze, I sincerely doubt they do any of the "harder" stuff. Unless you get any prescription stuff involved, which there's a good chance he's on for any number of athletic reasons.
