06/03/2018 - 4:00pm If he transfers now

If he transfers now, the coach/playbook could change in a year from now and he could find himself in a system that doesn't fit his skill set.  He could end up another Steven Threet.  If he waits until he graduates before transferring, he can select a much more favorable situation and he will have a U-M degree to fall back on.

05/25/2018 - 1:10pm You majored in pre-unemployment

You majored in pre-unemployment (history).  You would have had a hard time finding a job no matter where you went to school.

05/24/2018 - 7:11am KMI

Agree on KMI.  They raised their annual dividend from $0.50 to $0.80 this year and have committed to raising it $1.00 in 2019 and $1.25 in 2020.  Rich Kinder, the founder & executive chairman of KMI, owns 235 million shares of KMI so his personal interests and those of shareholders are 100% aligned.  It's reassuring when the chef eats his own cooking.  With the increase in shale production and the limited pipeline capacity, KMI has a bright future.  KMI is like Matty Moroun owning the Ambassador bridge. 

Also, like Schlumberger.  SLB is the Lexus of oilfield services.  As the price of energy rise, energy companies will increase their capex to maintain/increase capacity.  As the saying goes, don't invest in the gold miners, invest in the company that makes the picks and shovels.  SLB wins, not matter which energy company does well. 

Then there is Cisco (CSCO).  As long as the Internet continues to be built out and upgraded, CSCO will prosper.  There are upstarts that eat into CSCO's market share but there will still be the FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) factor.  No IT manager wants the responsibility of risking an IT system going down to save a few bucks.  From a financial standpoint, CSCO is repatriating $67 billion that will be used for $25 billion in stock buybacks and dividend increases.

04/03/2018 - 5:25pm Beilein's salary is pretty much in line

Excluding Duke’s Mike Krzyewski ($8.98 million), Kentucky’s John Calipari ($7.45 million), Ohio State’s Chris Holtmann ($7.15 million), Kansas’ Bill Self ($7.15 million), and Louisville's Chris Mack ($4 million), Beilien's salary is pretty much in line with what top coaches are making.

http://sports.usatoday.com/ncaa/salaries/mens-basketball/coach/

Jay Wright who has won two national championships in two of the past three years makes $2.585 million. 

Bumping Beilein up to $4 million for an extension would be appropriate.

03/26/2018 - 5:53pm Beilein's bonus payouts kick in sooner than Bill Self's

Beilein's bonus payouts kick in sooner than Bill Self's.  Self only gets $150K bonus if Kansas get to the Final Four.  Beilein gets $25K for a NCAA bid and $25K for each win in the tournament.  Self comes out ahead after reaching the Final Four but he risks getting nothing if he comes up short.  

Kansas’ Bill Self

Has ...

$50,000: Big 12 regular season title

$25,000: Big 12 tournament title

Can get …

$150,000: Final Four appearance

$200,000: Win NCAA title

David DeJulius and Brandon Johns are both Michigan residents.  If one of them qualifies for the Go Blue Guarantee, couldn't they attend U-M tuition free their freshman year and walk-on to the team?  They could convert to a basketball scholarship in their sophomore year.
