Congratulations to the Graduates.

Way back when when I defended in Mid May, I had to get all my changes in pretty quickly in order to get my degree conferred in August. I want to say end of May or early June, and there were definitely still undergraduate classes going on in the Summer. Possibly, Wheatley finished up his coursework in June or July or even August.

They could probably do better than a 29 ACT if they only knew the difference between it's and its.

Northwestern maybe, but Wisconsin is clearly and demonstrably easier to get into than Michigan.

15%<6% of SAT test takers, but then I realize trolls suck at math.

SAT SCORES YOU NEED TO GET IN

What are the SAT requirements for students to be admitted to University of Wisconsin Madison?

University of Wisconsin Madison typically requires applicants to be in the top 15 percent of SAT test takers. The school consistently takes SAT composite scores down to 1270 on a 1600 scale, below which admission should be considered a reach. We estimate some students could be accepted with SAT's as low as 1170. The estimated average SAT composite for admitted freshman is 1370 out of 1600. 16 percent of applicants submit SAT scores to the school. Note: SAT scores presented on this page have been adjusted upwards per the College Board's concordance tables for test takers after March 2016.

The entire list seems pretty suspect to me. Both Liberty and Regent rank higher than Michigan and huge chunks of their students bodies are online students (student comments in the rating reflect this).  They may have nice campuses (Liberty at least makes a ton of money from its online offerings so they may be spending it on making the campus nice) but how would online students, who may never visit campus, know?

Don't forget Dora the Explorer. And Elena of Avalor probably goes somewhere after Lion Guard. 

My daughter doesn't watch Spongebob (she never really got into it) but she loves My Little Pony.

I got one today (in Northeast Ohio). I backed the shirt + 2 copies (one signed level). Does the signed one come later?

Thanks. I actually knew four (the last three + Hutchinson). I was especially wondering about the first guy in the bottom row (right below Mattison) who looks huge.

Can someone take a stab at identifying these players. I can tell about three of them--I mostly see them on television while they are wearing helmets.

Is it just me or does the search function not actually function?

05/20/2018 - 10:11pm Obviously a matter of taste

but I could easily name a dozen westerns that I think are better than Tombstone (and I like Tombstone) without even considering the Eastwood/Leone spaghetti westerns.

I was a G.S.I. for American Film Genres in the nineties so I am a sucker for Noir and Westerns.

04/17/2018 - 3:26pm Only Chrissie Hynde is from Akron...

The rest of the Prentenders are/were English.

But the city in My City Was Gone is putatively Akron.

The Waitresses were also from Akron.

03/12/2018 - 1:53pm Lawrence Kasdan

I had Lawrence Kasdan for Undergrad. I didn't go. I went to the RC ceremony where each graduate got to speak for a minute or two.

I went for my doctorate.--in the winter in Crisler. Speaker was Ann Arbor native Ken Burns; he was pretty good.

02/03/2018 - 1:08pm Lord Hobo Boom Sauce

Lots of great recommendations on this thread and many things that I have had and enjoyed. M43 doesn't seem to have gotten down to Ohio yet so I will look for it on my next trip to Michigan. I am eager to try the Boss Tweed.

In terms of hoppy beers, I have recently enjoyed Lord Hobo's Boom Sauce and Troegs Blizzard of Hops (somewhat different in style--Boom Sauce is closer to Hopslam). I don't know if Jackie O's has distribution in Michigan, but Mystic Mama is also pretty good.Elysian Space Dust is good and pretty widely distributed.

07/27/2017 - 12:31pm Discount Records

Discount records was indeed on the corner of State and Liberty. Iggy Pop worked there in the 60s. Now a Potbelly Sandwich shop I think.

 

Edit: This was supposed to be a reply to the post that mentioned (in talking about Schoolkids) the record store on the corner of state and liberty. I guess threading is beyond me.

 

07/07/2017 - 10:22pm Herb Eagle

I am probably biased because I later taught for him (and he chaired my committee after the early 90s Com Department purge), but American Film Genres was a great class for a lecture course.

As an undergrad, I loved Ken Miklowki's writing poetry classes. Claudio Mazzola (italian Lecturer) was also great.

05/17/2017 - 12:22pm Exiled to Ohio

College Professor at a small private University. Have also been an administrator for 17 of the last 20 years, but on July 1, I get to go back to just professing. In the fall, I'll be teaching at our Rome Campus.

05/01/2017 - 11:19pm I think you are right

It's the other sports with off season tournaments and U-12 traveling teams that have encroached on the football season more than the other way around.

When I went to Boys State in Michigan, Terry Crews was there from tiny class D Flint Academy. He had twelve varsity letters as a rising Senior. I think that would be harder now.

 

 

07/03/2016 - 10:46am Didn't Jalen Rose's class at

Didn't Jalen Rose's class at Detroit Southwestern have 7 players that got D1 or D2 scholarships?

03/13/2016 - 1:41pm He works in Marketing for St.

He works in Marketing for St. Joseph's as his day job. I think he also is the broadcast voice of St. Joe's basketball.

01/23/2016 - 2:10pm Isn't Gary here for an unofficial?

Would that mean that Michigan could not provide anything?

07/19/2015 - 8:41pm It might have slightly more challenging

It might have slightly more challenging had it been held in Sweden as originally planned. I still think the US would have dominated, but jet lag and no home audience (in as much as there was any audience) might have slowed them down a bit.Canada is probably the next best team and they dropped out.

Canton Ohio was a last minute replacement (well like six months, but that's pretty last minute for an event of this scale). The teams stayed in dorms at Walsh University, right behind our house. 

My wife was running on campus and saw a French? player um..deflating his balls in a first floor dorm room without closing the blinds. I guess you could get lonely being on the road for three weeks.

07/18/2015 - 10:34am Not smart enough to embed in

Not smart enough to embed in my own post, but I salute the Police and Marvin Gaye.

 

07/18/2015 - 10:32am Funk, Punk, and Hippies

Grateful Dead-"Friend of the Devil." American Beauty and Workingman's Dead, the Dead's two best studio albums came out in 1970. Lots of Great Dead Shows from the seventies, including 12-8-73, possibly the only good thing to ever come out of Cameron Indoor Stadium.

 

Marvin Gaye "What's Going On?" also a great album.

Isaac Hayes "Theme from Shaft" Great Soundtrack overall.

P-Funk "We Want the Funk." I greatly regret that I was too young to go to the Silverdome when the Mothership touched down in 1978.

 

The Sex Pistols kind of suck, but paved the way for lots of great late punk/New wave stuff in the late 1970s.

The Police "Can't Stand Losing You."

Elvis Costello "Alison"

12/31/2014 - 12:23pm Thanks for posting these. I

Thanks for posting these. I enjoy hearing news about the other sports and athletes at Michigan.

12/20/2014 - 2:34pm AC all the way

Carter had a better overall career at Michigan. Howard had one amazing season and a second good year and if you want a Brady jersey, get a Patriots one.

12/14/2014 - 4:57pm Zinn was in my graduating class

at the RC in 1990. He is a great artist.

12/01/2014 - 2:09pm A Dog Named Blue.

I wanted to name our first dog Montgomery George Orwell Blue, but my wife prevailed upon me and we named him just Blue. He was joined by a sister doggie, Maize (Maizey) in Spring 2013, but Blue sadly had to be put to sleep this past March.

06/11/2014 - 10:42am Justin Turner

He is at DII Walsh University in Canton, OH, not far from Massillon. Has yet to get on the field--this fall might be his last chance.

Jerald Robinson is also on Walsh's team.

08/14/2013 - 6:01pm Justin Turner and Jerald Robinson

Justin Turner and Jerald Robinson are both planning to play at DII Walsh University, in North Canton Ohio. Don't know/can't say anything about any pending issues, academic or otherwise.
 

Walsh's new coach is Ted Karras, nephew of Lions' great (and Webster Dad) Alex Karras

07/23/2013 - 12:12pm Justin Turner Sighting

I don't have enough points to post this as a new thread.

 

I spoke with Justin today. He intends to play this fall at Walsh University in Canton, Ohio--just up the road from his hometown of Massillon.

 

Walsh used to be an NAIA school, but is now DII and in the GLIAC south division.

He apparently has two seasons of eligibility left in DII. My understanding is that the clock rule is different so he would only have one season in DI.

11/10/2012 - 4:30pm Losing to Northwestern is in no way

equivalent to dieing of cancer but this is how i am feeling about today.
