09/14/2017 - 3:32am How do you rate Isaac's play

How do you rate Isaac's play this year? It seems like he isn't the fastest (Evans), not the quickest direction changer (Evans), not the most powerful (Higdon), doesn't break the most tackles (Smith last year), but he does seem to play with impressive vision. What do you think?

Cool, makes sense. Did we recruit a Viper this recruiting class or someone who could switch to Viper, or is Harbaugh and Brown happy with Hudson and Glasgow?

06/08/2017 - 7:08pm Viper?

Why do you consider Jordan Anthony as a MIKE or WILL? Describing him as a spacebacker with excellent open field tackling skills seems to be a Viper to me. Is there something I'm missing here?

03/31/2017 - 10:53pm Final shot

I feel terrible for Walton missing that final shot against Oregon. According to this, missing the gamewinner is Walton's worst nightmare and it came at the worst possible time.

09/19/2016 - 5:45pm Wow this comment from that

Wow this comment from that Derrick Green recruiting post is just brutal in retrospect:

 

Is it an inappropriate comparison to say that the backfield of Gardner/Toussaint/Green is comparable to that of Smith/Pittman/Wells?  The biggest difference is that Gardner is a far more accurate passer than Smith, and probably has a stronger arm too.

01/04/2016 - 1:47am Before the season I predicted

Before the season I predicted 7-5. I thought that the team would lose some games that they should have won, but win against MSU and OSU. Instead, they took care of business - although they did win some games with much larger margins than predicted (3 game shutout streak, Florida). We were pretty close to losing against Minnesota and Indiana though: losing would have resulted in a 7-5 regular season as predicted with a much weaker narrative. Thankfully we didn't and reached 10 wins.

Harbaugh went 4-8 in his first season at Stanford in 2007, with wins over their rivals #2 USC and California, breaking a 5-year losing streak against both USC and Cal, a 36-game USC winning streak at home, and dashing USC's national title hopes. The USC game was considered to be a bigger upset than App State. If Michigan went 4-8 with wins over OSU and MSU, I think most people will be quite satisfied.

Really? Please proofread, we're Michigan fergodsake!

08/11/2014 - 2:44pm Yes, Austin is still an

Yes, Austin is still an awesome place. In fact, out of all the places I've lived in (Ann Arbor, Portland, Santa Clara, Seattle) it's still my favorite. The drawbacks you listed are indeed correct. Traffic is terrible and you'll probably want to start and end work at more unusual times in order to avoid rush hour. If you don't want or can't do this, then I suggest living on the same side of the river (Lady Bird "Lake") as your job. The weather in the summer can be terrible and sometimes breaks even 110F in the summer.

However, everything else is truly awesome. Real estate is currently still cheap (but quickly rising), the city is liberal and quirky and accepting of everyone, the music scene is terrific, the food is multi-cultural with terrific Texan BBQ, every season other than the summer is great, Texas has no state income tax, Google Fiber is coming soon, and it's quickly becoming one of the leading tech hubs in the US. Best of all, there's a major Michigan alum presence with plenty of places to watch Michigan football and basketball. Go Blue!

Well, technically he's correct. If the same thing happened to us with OSU, then we'd be furious and the board would be melting down. It's just hilarious for us since it's Michigan State.

06/07/2012 - 12:58pm No, if you did something bad

No, if you did something bad it would be your employer who gets sued. This is because you don't have millions of dollars, but your employer does.  They would sue your employer for poor workplace environment, lack of employee training, etc.

Here's an example: if you get hit by a truck, your family can sue the trucking company for millions of dollars in damages if the trucker is an employee of the company.

06/06/2012 - 11:34pm Kaplan has a list of 40 or so

Kaplan has a list of 40 or so words that commonly appear on the GRE. For me, at least two of the words appeared (it's been a while so I'm not sure about the details). Be sure to learn those 40 words, it's probably one of the best bang-for-your-buck areas to cover. Also, to get this list, you can find it through Google's book project for free. They scanned the book and you can search for the list in the book.

Hilarious, the "slippery slope" argument. If you've never discriminated on any basis as you so claimed, then signing it should be a trivial matter.

 

[quote]In 1975, the federal government said that Hillsdale had to sign a form stating that we did not discriminate on the basis of sex. Hillsdale College had never discriminated on any basis, and had never accepted federal taxpayer subsidies of any sort, so the College felt no obligation to comply, fearing that doing so would open the door to additional federal mandates and control.[/quote]

I don't think you said that right... you think that scheduling App State makes the schedule harder?

10/28/2011 - 3:14pm Of course.

I'm going to UT for grad school. I think getting WVU is great (assuming that the best course of action is for the Big 12 to survive). The Big 12 has horrible academics overall: now that A&M has left, the only good school left in the conference is UT. The Big 12 has generally been UT, OU, and everyone else (although Oklahoma State is currently surging), WVU would probably be a high-tier team within the conference. The only downside is that it's far away, but I think that the upside far outweighs the downside.

07/15/2011 - 12:34pm About time the acceptance rate was lowered

 

If you want to be the best, you need a low acceptance rate. Sorry guys but that's just how it is.

Here are the acceptance rates in 2006. 60% was just way too high for a world-class university. Even Notre Dame had an acceptance rate of 30%, which is surely lower now (as it is with all schools). When even the University of Tennessee and Florida have a lower acceptance rate than you, you know something's wrong.
