'The university issued an initial statement earlier Friday before announcing its personnel decision that reads: "The alleged behaviors raised in the ESPN story are troubling and not consistent with our approach to the coaching and development of our student athletes. Such allegations do not reflect the culture of our program. We are committed to swiftly examining and addressing any such reports when they are brought to our attention."'

Emphasis added by me. Durkin will be fired.

07/11/2018 - 10:27pm There are...

There are...

 

many criteria for a title to be characterized as a lame teaser.  I wouldn't think the presence of an ellipsis is tops on the list,

It's possible that recruits from the northern tier of states might have fully formed expectations of the Michigan winter weather, and less potential for an unpleasant realization.

06/23/2018 - 8:52am Remember, we're all just…

Remember, we're all just Michigan fans, or at least have an interest in Michigan sports.  That's it, and nothing more.  Stop pretending that what you think or feel makes any difference.

Do you have to Crouch when it is administered?

06/13/2018 - 7:04pm This year's increase in…

This year's increase in applications might be due, in part, to UM now accepting the Coalition Application as well as the Common Application.  This means an applicant can apply to both MSU and UM through the Coalition Application, new this year.

maybe the skanky girl-group tribute band doors. probably not, though

06/04/2018 - 10:15am 7 losses? To Who?

Even if you think the team will lose all of it's games to ranked opponents (ND, Wisc, MSU, PSU, OSU), they would still need to lose 2 more games.  How?  Nebraska at home?  At Northwestern? Maryland at home?  Indiana at home? C'mon, man.

06/03/2018 - 6:39pm 2015

It seems like we didn't emphasize defending the spread enough in the 2015 game, especially in the 2nd half

06/01/2018 - 12:21pm RB Willie Heston

Willie Heston

72 TDs, 2 Time All-American, during his career UM compiled a 43-0-1 record and were credited with four national championships.

05/26/2018 - 7:02pm Ugh - I got the dreaded "Defend Ohio State"

Couldn't we re-word this to "Defend Occupation of Columbus" or something similar?

05/26/2018 - 7:41am "Dobbs Fails to put Michigan in his Top Eight"

There, I fixed the title for you

05/25/2018 - 5:09pm Note about 529 Plans

I know this doesn't apply to the OP, but if you're 42 or older when your child is born, instead of a 529 plan I would suggest a backdoor Roth IRA contribution (after tax IRA contribution followed by Roth IRA conversion).  You get the same benefits as a 529 plan, but much more flexibility on how and when to use funds, including any way you like without penalty.  You can invest in any security in any class you like, and you can re-balance as often as you like.

05/25/2018 - 12:20pm Intergenerational Earnings Elasticity is at All Time High

Actually, it is harder than ever before to move from the poorer class into the wealthy class.  Here is a good read:

My parents were sometimes full of hot air, but I wouldn't go that far!

05/25/2018 - 9:26am Had a Job Once

where my hours were Tue 13 hrs, Wed 14 hrs, and Thu 13 hrs.  Every weekend was 4 days off!  Yes!

05/24/2018 - 12:16pm BYU is not in P5 Conference

they are an independent and, with a record last year of 4-9 including losses to UMass, Fresno State, East Carolina and Utah State, they are nowhere near the level of ND

05/24/2018 - 11:33am How did we lose Temple to Clemson?

Are all members of the "Allied Forces" following the same rules?

05/23/2018 - 5:04pm VTI Outperforms VOO slightly

I own both, but currently SCHD is a better bet

05/22/2018 - 7:54pm Run the B1G Schedule like a Tournament

Use last year's results to seed next year's schedule.  Use PF/PA in conference for tie breakers.  Home vs Away goes to higher seed, unless the last time the 2 teams played was home for higher seed.

05/22/2018 - 11:41am Chuck Filiaga at LT

Filiaga has lots of natural talent, equal or more than Mason Cole. Given the right development he can become very good LT.

05/14/2018 - 5:43pm Look into coding bootcamp

6 months intensive study and make 6 figures plus bonus\options.

05/14/2018 - 4:58pm Go to Aying

for the Brauweisse at the brewery/restaurant.  Best beer in the world.  Really good food.  40 minutes by train from Munich.

Also, the Deutsches Museum in Munich is one of the world's great museums.
