Is the way to go, great headphones in every price segment. I own the momentum over ears (absolutely incredible, but around 300 bucks) and some of their cheap ear buds which are great for the money. Beats are terrible for the segment they are priced in.

04/07/2016 - 10:53pm Second that

Had 401 with a German professor (don't remember his name) it is honestly the only class I've ever taken that no matter how hard I tried I just couldn't understand some of it.

01/26/2015 - 1:30pm The truth

South is still a premier highschool. Last year south sent 70 or so kids to michigan with almost 100 accepted students. Not as certain about North. But I can tell you the GP schools are absolutely still very good. Despite this, and as sad as it is, the truth is the influx of minorities has caused test scores to drop significantly at both schools (an article was written in the school paper a couple years ago while

I was there by a black student, hoping to create change. It was shown with statistics on the increase in minorities corresponding with a drop in test scores). Grosse Pointe as a city is absolutely still a stable area, and a ton of wealth remains in the area, only a small area of the park (the cabbage patch rental area), and small parts of the woods are showing any sort of decline, and even that Is simply in property values, the houses are still quite nice for what they are.

06/06/2014 - 10:17am The real reason

I'm a current student. People don't go because they'd rather get up, get bombed, go get some food, and go to sleep/watch it on their couch instead of standing in the stadium and watching the team suck. Now don't get pissed at me, I go to every game and cheer my ass off. But I also didn't buy student tickets for the upcoming year. Instead of buying student tickets I decided I would just spend literally 30 seconds before the game looking for someone at my tailgate who's too drunk to go. Give them 10-20 bucks and save 50-75% on the ticket. It's that simple. Students get very, very drunk on game days, and the product these last few years just hasn't been good enough to change their minds and make them into rabid football fans (keep in mind, 50% of students are from outside of Michigan, and didn't grow up as huge michigan football fans). That's the unfortunate truth and it needs to change, student indifference to the football team has got to be at an all time high currently.

04/25/2013 - 2:00am You're all a bunch of GDI's

I hate how Anti Greek this board is. We get it, you want students to show

up on time. But sorry, getting hammered at massive parties in beautiful weather with beautiful girls as well as your best friends and fraternity brothers (something you will Only do about 20 times in your life) is more fun then going to the first quarter of the Illinois game. I have the next 40 years to be a punctual, responsible fan. Let me have my four years of being an idiot.

Great, but I just think it would've been cool if at the end they just would've showed Alfred's smirk, and left just a little doubt that he survived.

I'm a fall 1988, have you been around to check out what the boys are doing nowadays? Ive heard nothing but good things about the reputation of the house from my friends children. I'm thinking I'll have to stop by the house sooner or later now that they have moved back into 707.

Had the first tee time at my club this morning, got some new Ecco golf shoes, got over to the family cookout and was greeted by my brother in law with a 12 pack of Oberon. Damn good day

04/03/2012 - 2:12pm Driving high is nothing close

Driving high is nothing close to driving drunk. I would say driving high is less dangerous then driving after having one or two beers

Did offer. A day or two after he commited to us. Search jake but Notre dame offer on google, it was posted by a 247 sports mod.

Let's be clear about this. Brady Hoke is NOT "morbidly obese" yeah he's a bit overweight but Charlie Weis he is not. Al Borges on the other hand is almost there.

02/04/2012 - 12:17pm You could say that...

But it wouldn't be true. Sure the girls aren't as hot as probably any sec school. But you absolutely cannot look at the top end sororities here and say there aren't many hot girls.

01/16/2012 - 11:48pm I know its the freep, but

I know its the freep, but snyder posted an article about how he was not considering transfering and is happy to be a michigan man. This was three days ago... pretty sure hes not going anywhere

01/10/2012 - 9:41pm Nevermind

Looks like Ondre misunderstood a sam Webb tweet saying he HADN'T heard anything about Danny O

01/10/2012 - 9:34pm posted from iPhone

Ondre Pipkins was tweeting about how Michigan is recruiting Danny again... and he doesn't seem to happy about it. Not sure how to post tweets but anyone who follows him can do it.

I found out December 19th last year, it was the first day that decisions were sent out. So I'd guess they will come in around then. Good luck!

10/30/2011 - 5:57pm posted from iPhone

I'm a freshman and can tell you the main reason everyone was late was the night before. Friday was a huge party night and almost everyone I knew slept in saturday morning, I'm not just talking normal students either, even most of the Greeks (including myself) who are normally up by 6 slept in until mudbowl started. Also, like everyone has said, not every student is a huge football fan. I'd love it if everyone was, but remember this is an elite academic institution. Sports aren't the first thing on everyone's mind.

10/21/2011 - 12:14pm posted from iPhone

Exactly. It was pretty surprising to me as well. After hearing about him being a bright spot in spring ball and getting a little time on special teams early on I figured he would be a major contributor down the road.

10/21/2011 - 12:10pm posted from iPhone

It apparently just happened in the last couple days, but has not been announced yet. Unfortunately I have no link.I have a friend close to the team who told me yesterday. Wish I could prove it now, but well find out in the next few days for real hopefully.

10/21/2011 - 2:32am posted from iPhone

I posted this in another thread, but apparently we've lost Gregg brown (listed with two g's) to transfer as well.

10/21/2011 - 2:31am posted from iPhone

Yeah I've been a reader for a few years but am new to posting. I'll get there eventually. Shame Gregg is leaving though. Apparently he didn't like his standing behind countess and Taylor in terms of the freshman corners

10/20/2011 - 10:01pm posted from iPhone

Yeah I understand. It'll be announced soon enough I'm sure. Trying to keep the people informed from my sources (friend on the team)

10/20/2011 - 8:59pm Gregg Brown Transfer

Don't mean to hijack this thread. But it appears Gregg has transferred to Cincinnati. I know he's still on the roster and everything, but it just happened. I'm sure it'll be announced soon. Im guessing I'll get negged for this because I have no sources to link and low points.

<br>If anyone wants to create a thread about this it would be great.

Anyone see Vince Smith form two guns with his hands and shoot at the defense on our converted 4th and 1? I thought that was pretty badass

10/07/2011 - 1:43pm After reading the paywall,

After reading the paywall, this doesnt sound good for us. Sounds like his parents really dont want him to go to M for whatever reason. That said hopefuly he can make the decision on his own.

08/08/2011 - 11:30pm Is there any way?

Any way we could get rivals to add these offers? Obviously chris doesn't care which is very humble but just for all of us who'd like to see him get the rankings he deserves (and boost our class ranking even higher).

08/03/2011 - 11:13am posted from iPhone

Hopefully the coaches can change that if he still visits again like Tom said he would. He's the guy I want the most thats left on the board

07/15/2011 - 6:54pm posted from iPhone

So Tom does that mean if T-Rich visits elsewhere he has effectively decommited?

07/15/2011 - 11:35am posted from iPhone

Sorry but that's just dead wrong. I am a incoming freshman and I went to a highly competitive public high school (50+ kids going to M) and there were plenty of kids this year who had 3.9 or higher GPA's with 27 or higher on the ACT who didn't get in. Granted some with those stats did. But both of those are scores are quite a bit above average. Michigan is getting much harder to get into. I'm just glad I'm not applying 10 years from now.

06/29/2011 - 7:53pm Totally agree with you,

Totally agree with you, theres a lot of great music getting hated on here. DMB is really great if you listen to the live cd's (especailly if its of a show you went to) and U2 is quite possibly the most influential rock band of the last 25 years... Plus PINK FLOYD!!! how can you dislike dark side of the moon?  It is truly a great album. None of these are even close to my favorite bands to be honest but I definitely think they make some very good to great music. The stuff that is pure shit is todays mainstream music. Lil Wayne is terrible, really just awful. Every single song is him talking about his addiction to pussy, money and weed (ill admit good things to be addicted to). Maybe a little talk about how big  his house is thrown in after that. The one song i do like of his is Tie My Hands. Other then that think about Ke$ha, Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna, Waka Flaka Flame... its all really just bad. There is some great music being made today (Whoever mentioned Foster The People is right) Its just most people dont look for it enough to see it.

06/29/2011 - 2:02pm Does anyone in the know

know if Chris has an ND offer? Im talking TomVH, Magnus, DGDestroys... Im just interested to know.

06/27/2011 - 5:54pm Whats funny about all the

Whats funny about all the decommit stuff is that Terry doesnt even have a florida offer. Who cares if he wears a hat, I personally have hats from tons of different colleges. I pretty much get one everytime i go to a campus as long as its not a rival.

06/05/2011 - 6:20pm Does anyone know

Why Wormley doesnt have a better offer list? I know he has OSU & UM so maybe is it because thats all he was after? It just seems like someone with his profile would have a few good offers. Sure this has been asked before but id like to know.

Sorry I meant 5 and 6 four stars per 247 and scout

05/08/2011 - 2:00pm posted from iPhone

Because they aren't. Look at scout and 247. We have I think 4 and 5 four stars respectively on those two sites. I think we have at least 4 and most likely 5-6 on rivals

05/08/2011 - 1:13pm posted from iPhone

Basing this off of offer lists and the fact that I think the top 7 or 8 players in Michigan will be four stars I'll go with this
<br>
<br>Bolden - 4 star
<br>
<br>Braden - 3 star
<br>
<br>Brown - 4 star (he has some quite good offers and is top 247)
<br>
<br>Funchess - 4 star (6th or 7th in Michigan)
<br>
<br>RJS - 4 star (top 100)
<br>
<br>Ojemudia - 4 star (the other of 6th or 7th in Michigan)
<br>
<br>Ringer - 3 star (could easily be a 4 star but I think the offer list might stop rivals from giving him it)
<br>
<br>Ross - 4 star (top 75)
<br>
<br>Stacey - 3 star
<br>
<br>Williams - 3 star
<br>
<br>I think we will have at least 4 four star guys. Pretty much any of the guys besides stacey, braden and williams have a very good chance for one. Either way I am really happy with how this class is going. But I'm still hoping to see some good star rankings for this class and end up a highly ranked class even if it's only for good press.

04/13/2011 - 1:28pm Ron Thompson

So is Ron looking for more offers anything to worry about? That somewhat worries me that he isn't sure cause he's a guy we really want. Hoping someone with some greater knowledge then what we can get on this board will let us know what he's thinking...

04/01/2011 - 8:06pm Hockey player

Today actually was the end of a prank that started last year for me. For the last year we convinced one of my friends that another guy working out at our gym played in the NHL for the lightning before a career ending foot injury ( the lightning were my friends favorite team for some reason). For the next year this guy proceeded to wear lighting gear, talk about his experiences with fans, post pictures on facebook of him in full lightning equipment and even get kids to approach him at the gym and ask for his autograph. Today we told him it was all fake and he was absolutely shocked. In the end we probably had 50-60 people in on it at the gym and everyone kind of gathered around when we told him. Needless to say my friend is a complete idiot, but it was still hilarious.

03/26/2011 - 5:19pm Timeline?

First of all I have to say it's really cool to have a recruits brother keeping us updated on things. That being said, and if he doesn't want anyone to know feel free to simply not reply. But im sure a lot of us are wondering, does Matthew have a timeline for his announcement or is he just rolling with things for now?

02/25/2011 - 7:05pm hard to be impartial but

hard to be impartial but michigan is probably a legit A- with the combination of a great town and some awesome architecture (law quad especially) the only negative is the distance between some areas and that makes it not an A for me.

Wisconsin - A

Northwestern - B-

ND - Campus itself is an A+ but the surrounding town sucks so Ill give it an A-/B+

UChicago - B+

MSU - B

Hope - B

Miami Ohio - Like ND campus is cool but surroundings are weak... b+

Miami Florida - B+

Indiana - B+

Kenyon - A (amazingly beautiful place, check it out if you have the chance)

Virginia - A+... the gold standard for me

 

01/20/2011 - 11:55pm I think we might be reading

I think we might be reading into this too much. before he tweeted "torn" "I ont know what to do" and "need a sign" he tweeted " If it aint' right by now, it'll never be right" so either hes talking about penn state not being right (cant imagine its about M or he wouldnt have commited)  or hes on a completely different subject. These tweets did come 6-7 tweets after the "penn state coach just left!!!"  tweet
