|08/11/2016 - 2:35pm||Good luck||
I'm a new teacher in Boston area. Compared to NY it's almost as expensive with almost as long commutes.
I did not have a license when I started, and I don't think you have to. I don't even have an education degree, it's a science degree. I have to take a few classes, do some training, it's not too bad compared to a Ph.D. You have to pass a test. What Bluesalt said. It's an easy test - if you have a brain you'll pass.
The district I'm in had a lot of competition, about 15 applicants for every job, though I t hink it's easier for sciences. And it's an "urban" district with some behavior problems.
Boston itself is supposed to be a very bad district to work for, according to my fellow teachers, badly behaved kids, bad work conditions for teachers. Newton has bratty rich kids with obnoxious parents, but pretty good otherwise. Cambridge is in between.
Usually you can find information about pay online. My district pays for Ph.D. and I think most districts do. Beyond that, it's pure seniority system where you get higher pay every year you're in the system. (EDIT, my district starts Ph.D.'s at around 62k)
lol senior/AP though. You won't get that until you've been there a while. Also she has to take AP training, so it's not happening for at least a year.
|11/13/2013 - 11:20pm||agree with Seth's take||
I too appreciate SC's post, but it doesn't hit home for me.
Imagine if we played everybody out of position on the OL while sitting Gallon and Funchess in favor of more OL. In theory the play design could gain yards if people execute. But in practice, we are not putting people in position to do their jobs.
Borges has basically done that all year. Fitz can't block DE's but is repeatedly being asked to do so. I'd rather take my chances that the OL will catch on to the scheme. Or throw Hayes out there and have him go out for a swing pass. Fitz can't run from I either, but is asked to. Williams can't block at all or catch; he plays over Dileo who can catch (usually). Funchess and Butt can't block either but are asked to. Kerridge is plays OK, but not great, and plays over Dileo or Norfleet.
And for what, so we can play "power"? M has a tradition of shotgun passing too.

QB iso at 4:18, great to know it's in the playbook.

Some of the2013 serniors may not be given a 5th year, and their scholarships used to get us from 22 to 26 in 2011.
In that case, we'd have fewer scholarships available.

thanks much. If I had the ability to upvote I would!
|10/29/2010 - 3:26pm||who else was supposed to play||
who else was supposed to play FS?
Van Slyke? Walk on. Emelien? Slower than Cam. Carvin and Ray? True freshman.
At least with Cam, you had a guy who played in the spring and had one year with Barwis.
Coaches were probably hoping that that would make up (to some degree) his lack of speed.
Carvin's probably too slow to be a true FS also. So do you bulk him up to play LB/S or speed him up to play FS? Probably taking a chance on bulking him up.
I think the coaches were stuck with poor options before and they're stuck with poor options now.

very nice and creative

Thank you compliance guy.
Related, it would be really great if anybody here was
a member of 4chan. Fight fire with fire.

they also dropped Rosenberg's book, at least for a while.
Great stuff and great fans of M.
|07/06/2010 - 8:56pm||stats say yes, but eyes say no||
I think Henson also had some ridiculous 9 YPA that season. By the stats, I don't think there's any question that Henson had the best season.
But my eyes told me something different. Henson had the chance to beat Purdue, but didn't play well in the 4th. Henson tore a fingernail against MSU, and folded. Henson led us to 51 against NU, but played soso in the 4th.
Part of being the best is being great under adversity. That's why Ali is considered the greatest; that's how Brady, Montana, and Elway are considered the among greatest.
Drew Henson under adversity was not the greatest.

Why do we care? Posting anything Freep-related supports the Freep.

Ooooohhh Yeahhh Randy Macho Man Savage has taken a new gig as Minnesota AD.
|06/16/2010 - 7:07am||why?||
Why are we reading the Freep article at all? Why discuss it?
Every time we discuss the Freep, every time we link it, we help keep it in business.
|05/14/2010 - 5:28pm||one more point||
Somebody also asked her about online learning. She said that learning was also about meeting people, learning about diverse backgrounds, saw online learning as a niche thing. So she didn't see M going that direction, and got a bunch of applause with that.
|05/13/2010 - 5:16pm||I was at this same event||
I was at this same event. reposting my comments that I originally posted at Rivals.
Attended a donor/alum function where MSC attended, spoke, and answered audience questions. Overall, MSC was extremely impressive, speaks well, high energy, and a sense of humor. Would've never guessed she is 68.
*edit* this was not in my original posting, but I remember the same thing about not changing the name of the Big10 if we go up to 16.
|05/07/2010 - 6:04pm||Larry Coker||
Gotta be Larry Coker.
I don't know how anybody could say Switzer. If you only looked
at his college record you'd say he's a great (if dirty) coach.
That alone makes him better than guys like Coker.
|05/03/2010 - 12:28pm||book is boring||
The book is boring. How anybody could take the most exciting subject ever and turn it into watching pain dry is beyond me. I got through 25 pages and that was enough. TIger Woods should've used this book instead of Ambien.
|04/07/2010 - 2:19pm||Northwestern||
great post. I wonder if you took this further back how would Northwestern, OSU, M appear. M for obvious reasons. Northwestern and OSU because it seems like Northwestern has been getting lucky like this for YEARS. The whole 2001 OSU national championship seemed ridiculously lucky and Tresselball in general seems to get really lucky.

Great story. Makes me love Pat Fitzgerald even more.

Your letter is the kind of stuff that keeps the Free Press going. Without attention, there is no reason to write stories.
Thanks a lot.
|02/08/2010 - 6:41pm||Piano juries||
I took organic chem, Math 417, but my piano juries were the hardest. Here's the case for them
- Nobody studies 4 hours a day for any course. Piano majors practice 4 hours a day and more for their final.
- 15 minutes vs. 2 hours. You can make up time or realize your stupidity in 2 hours, but not in the 15 minutes of a jury
- one shot. You can't go back if you screw up in your Piano final, whereas you can go back and fix your mistakes on a test.
- Win or you're out. At Junior finals, if you fail, you're OUT of the major and have to find another school to accept you! The fail rate is also a lot higher than chem or math or something like that.
|12/31/2009 - 2:05pm||great books||
I have both books. They are both great books, but at the same time, they strip some of the BARWIS mystique away (if the season didn't already).
They are great workouts. And if you follow them, you'll see strength, agility, flexibility, and conditioning gains. At the same time though, you'll see the same things in other modern workout manuals. Everything BARWIS does is as modern as what is out there, but he's not necessarily a pioneer or anything.

WTF? Where is THE KNOWLEDGE?
You'd think he'd dominate the awards!
|11/27/2009 - 10:42am||Very nice work||
Only thing I might add to the "football hater"
This person thinks that RR is from WV = hillbilly.
|11/17/2009 - 10:41pm||I challenge you to find one example of a team with a more deplet||
Northwestern and Pat Fitzgerald
Jim Harbaugh's staff
There's tons of examples
|11/12/2009 - 4:48pm||yes||
I hope THE KNOWLEDGE is correct on this
and MICHIGAN shall soar again
And THE KNOWLEDGE will bask in the glory of his correctness

Definitely Emanuelle Chriqui
|07/27/2009 - 8:18am||thanks||
Denard is almost certainly going to end up in the 'running' category, by how he is used. Based on the injury frequency of that category, we may end up using Gardner as a freshman, whether we want to or not.
I would also be interested in the results of adding a few years and a few teams, for more data.

Ryu is easily the coolest character.
The guy doesn't care about anything except fighting.
What could be cooler than that??

And the Proleteriat rejoiced!

But I'm not sure. Namely
- A great long ball requires great *timing* too. I'm not sure you're going to get that shuttling WR's in and out
- A great long ball attack requires a great QB. You're only going to get that maybe 2/3 years at best.
- M QB's are going to be spending time learning read option. There's only so much you can learn.
- M QB's are going to be getting hit and hurt.
Lastly, UF also stockpiles talent all over the field and

This post is cracks eric_lanai up
|12/18/2008 - 2:22pm||sort of||
the 1-1-9 can be successful too. But it's going to be harder than with a 3-4 or a 4-3 purely via schematic reasons. There's a reason nobody runs the 5-2 anymore.
Furthermore, part of whether a 3-3-5 is successful is the players you can recruit for the system. I think the WV example isn't totally irrelevant, but it's not close enough for my taste either.
And exactly as you say, the quality of coaches matter. If we get the 3-3-5, I want Casteel, Mr. 3-3-5 himself. Not a bunch of RR's cronies who don't have the same coaching ability.
|12/18/2008 - 12:43pm||eric_lanai||
it's a poor test case because WV doesn't recruit well period and certainly not at Michigan's level. We recruit different people at different levels.
Variations in a WV-level class would not necessarily be the same as variations in a Florida, LSU, or USC class.
That said, there are no good test cases that I can think of.

left off Hopson, which is maybe the most obvious choice. Not my pick, but there's a good chance he'll be the next DC (no inside info here, just common sense). Other options I'd be happy with: Greg Robinson, Ron Vanderlinden but I don't think they're as likely.
