09/09/2014 - 11:27am Gluten-free help

Ace, I'm a U-M alum and avid MGoBlog fan who rarely posts (though I support the site through purchases!), but I found your story so heartwarming that I needed to post.  Thanks for sharing.  

My wife recently started a business to produce and market high-protein, gluten-free foods that taste good (I won't post the name because I don't want to seem to be using MGoBlog for promotional purposes).  Her first product is a pancake mix.  As the guinea pig for the formulation process, I can vouch that it tastes great!  My wife and I would like to send you some (complimentary, of course) to help with your transition to a gluten-free diet.  I just need an address.

I think it all hangs on Devin's health.  If he plays every game, we'll go 9-2 or 10-1... we'll win all of the first 5 easily except ND, which we'll win but close.  There will be one other game that's tougher than expected, probably Minn but maybe CT (first road game.)

We'll go into Happy Valley and win one of those "gut it out" type of games that proves a building block.

Indiana is a trap game that worries me - we could be 6-0 coming off a very tough road win with MSU on the horizon.  If it were on the road, I'd be very worried.  At home, I'm more confident.

7-0 going into East Lansing and the start of "The Test" - @MSU, NEB, @NW. I think we win at least one, lose at least one, and the other will a toss-up.  If we're fairly healthy, we take 2.  If not, we lose 2.  

Iowa is another trap game, but we'll win.  

This all means we're weither 10-1 or 9-2 with ohio coming to town.  If we're healthy, I think we win.  IF there's a key player or two out, we may lose.  A week later, we'll do it again. 

IF Devin goes down for multiple games, I doubt we'll make the B1G championship, and we'll likely go anywhere from 6-6 to 8-4, depending on how many he misses.

06/12/2013 - 3:05pm I've never posted before but

I've never posted before but love MGoBlog.  Your post got me to respond.  I am a grad of both U-M (LSA '84) and Harvard (Law '88).  Happy to help if I can.  In a nutshell, I love U of M, but anyone who can get into Harvard should go, period.  The connections and overall experience are worth it, and there's just something about the "H-bomb", as my wife calls it.  The name gives you instant credibility, rightly or wrongly.  

That said, it's important for her to be happy where she goes and to be able to get the education she wants.  If she's not comfortable at Harvard or it doesn't offer the program she wants, U of M is a great choice.
