I think it depends on how you go about it. Make the reality for people who live there part of the educational experience, rather than trying to insulate them from that reality. Contribute back in some way, perhaps through participation in a community water conservation project.

There are plenty of other local issues also worthy of attention.

10/20/2017 - 9:49pm guts for brains is a thing

Intuitive knowledge can be highly rational if it comes from a place of self-awareness. OP's perspective reflects an outdated and overly simplistic understanding of emotional intelligence. A complete human being has access to both faculties and they are mutually reinforcing. That goes for Sam's gut feelings too. He has the objective knowledge but also a good feel for how high school kids behave.

Why do the Bobcats have so many off-season transfers?

are you referring to hemp-derived CBD oil? All cannabis is going to have THC by definition.

Well, it is either spend my time on MGoBlog debating this or spending the time bettering myself and contributing to my family and community. Duh!

Been to Bolivia. Fascinating place. A good excuse to say Titicaca over and over and pretend you are 7 years old. They kept serving us Americans fried chicken and Chinese food, which got tiring.

but I thought I saw the MSU player throw the first punch. I imagine it would be really tough to hold back in that situation.

09/16/2016 - 4:52pm Intermountain West

Hello from Colorado.  With nonconference games with Utah and now Colorado, I am curious how much of a recruiting priority is the Intermountain West for Michigan. There aren't many high caliber programs out here until you get to the West Coast.

What makes you think my Michegan jersey is fake?

I would be curious how Drevno would respond to this type of questioning. His interview responses typically seem pretty pointless to me.

06/20/2016 - 11:03pm Defender?

What is this so-called "defender" thing of which you speak? I am intrigued.

06/10/2016 - 4:01pm position switch?

Perhaps he is more of a possession slot receiver than a tight end.

06/01/2016 - 3:54pm two downvotes?

I am confused as to why I got downvoted for this gif or why a picture of Romero hitting the ball was posted in reply.  I had intended for this gif to be a celebration of Romero's success.  I am sure she is a positive role model for girls everywhere.

05/19/2016 - 6:43pm Dude, STFU!

That movie was awesome!

05/12/2016 - 3:40pm I get it now.

I see the OP edited his post to add the point you express.  The idea of segmenting the summer to provide facility time for both spring/winter and for fall sports seems pretty reasonable to me, althought there may be better ways to go about it.  The point about how they lined up the fall sport time to conincide with the NCAA dead period does seem short-sighted or manipulative.

05/12/2016 - 3:26pm logged in just to neg you for not reading

Let's not be so narcissistic as to villify every single restriction on satellite camps as aimed at Harbaugh.  According to the memo in the link, the problem with the June 6 date for the Bob Jones High School camp is that it takes place during the time period set aside for spring and winter sports.  Camps are permitted for fall sports in late-June and July.  I assume this restriction is, in part, designed to ensure that football does not squeeze out all the other high school sports.  This seems pretty reasonable to me.

04/19/2016 - 8:07pm (Thread-Jack) question re Amazon cut

On a related note, do you know what activity on Amazon qualifies MGoBlog for a cut?  Is it going though MGoBlog's link to Amazon to search for an item?  Or is it putting the item in the shopping cart?  Or is it making the actual purchase? I ask because I frequently will go to Amazon to search for an item and put it in my shopping cart, but then not make the actual purchase until later. 

04/18/2016 - 8:19pm Michigan Football... meh.

Can't wait for the White Lion reunion tour.  Oh, and I just negged every single one of you fuckers.


04/11/2016 - 4:23pm Imagine taking it out of the football context....

Imagine a high school in Atlanta invites a prominent Princeton literature professor to lead a summer creative writing workshop for local high school students.  Then, Emory University gets the Association of American Universities to ban this type of workshop.  Absurd, right?  Why would any educational institution want to deprive local kids of the opportunity to learn from the best -- only a handful of which would even be considered for admission by Emory or Princeton?  Now, subsitute "prominent Michigan football coach" for "Princeton literature professor".  Substitute "football camp" for "creative writing workshop", and "SEC" for "Emory".  It becomes evident just how dehumanizing the NCAA policy is for the kids who aspire to attend these football camps.

03/18/2016 - 10:25am Thanks for the insight.

I learned something new today.

I wonder if the current strategy is more about playing to Walton's strengths than an overarching strategy

After practicing law for nearly two decades, yesterday I discovered that my true calling in life may be as a shamanic healer. Don't think it pays as well, but more interesting to talk about at certain parties.
