Second term junior i did well in ME fluids then decided to take the grad level course my first term senior year. Same prof but it didnt take long to realize he didnt like underclassmen in his grad classes.
i worked my ass off then on the final - 4 questions. I couldnt answer one!
After 5 or so minutes he asked the class if anyone wanted a C+ they could turn their papers in now. the other 3 under classmen did. -- smart move.
prof left the room for about 10 minutes then came back and asked if anyone wanted a C
I went for it
30 years later i still think about that final - DAMN that man!!!

He taught automatic controls (I think this was ME 461) and then i took a grad class from him on vibration that was out of this world hard i was working full time at ford and taking a full load at M and begged him to help me in his free time since i was working too much. he really helped me out
He was a bit strange. a true nerd; totally dedicated to his passion. He started a simulation software company whose name i have forgotten but at the time they were really world class
I did an engineering law project on his simulation of a train crash - really cool - well before all this solid modeling stuff now

My favorite is West End Grill
Pricey but well worth it
Never had a bad meal and never not been impressed.
Not as good as Tribute in W Bloomfield or other similar restaurants but I love this place
