Quick math that could be a bit off.  But if this pays for tuition alone (not room/board, books etc.) and comes out of the endowment, the endowment alone would pay for 172,400 kids without the endowment ever growing...  It would take DECADES (hundred of years even) for that number of kids to benefit from this.  Plus, the endowment will grow, it will not run out...

 

U of M can afford this without the cost being thrown at other people.

06/16/2017 - 8:22am Seriously.. reading through

Seriously.. reading through this thread sheds a sad light.  

The university is doing something to help lower income families get education that they otherwise wouldn't be able to get, or would otherwise cripple them financially for years, and people somehow turn that into a negative...  without even knowing the facts, they assume others are going to pay more (from my understanding this would be coming out of the $10 billion endowment, not everyone elses' tuition..).  Or because it cuts off at a certain income bracket, that is a bad/unfair policy..  Or because they missed out on it, everyone else should too..  Like Brian said on social media, shitting on a good thing because it is not the best thing is a pervasive disease in society these days, and it is happening on this board...

Truly, it must be pretty miserable going through life finding the negative in everything.  

Jeez.

This is amazing.  My fiance currently goes to U of M (went back to school at 30 after initially not going to college) on a need based scholarship and we thought we were going to lose that scholarship when we got married.  With me making $48k/year and her very little workig part time, that would be a big hit for us and make buying a house or starting a family tough...

This is really really amazing.

We need more of this in the world.

While I don't agree with the behavior or sentiment, I 100% agree that if JT Barrett or another high profile buckeye walked into the Jug, there is a good chance he would be harrassed.

Looks bad, but I don't think it is exclusive to Alabama, OSU, etc.

11/23/2016 - 10:34am I think we will be able to

I think we will be able to run the ball fairly well.  Like others have said OSU's run d and IU's are very comparable, and I think it is safe to say we will get at least slightly better QB play this week whether from Speight or O'Korn in better weather and in his second start.  The key is we have to contain them on defense, because even if we run the ball farily well, that doesn't equate to a bunch of points.  Just look at the MSU game.

We win this game by stopping the run on D and limiting big plays; controlling field position on special teams; running the ball well enough to set up a couple long balls and also to control field position, and not turning the ball over.

The worst thing that can happen in this game is OSU being able to run the ball on us.  That happens and I do not see how we win.

I've never found the idea of watching the game among opposing fans and having to hide my cheers or fandom appealing.

I am all for "noticing things" and commenting on them. That is why I am happy with the win I just "noticed". I am not saying there is nothing to work on, and a big part of me is disappointed we didn't hang 78 on them. However, some of the pure negativity here is mind bottling.

In a lot of ways it is on an individual insider basis too.

Sam Webb is hands down the best in the business, and he is with Scout

Wiltfong and Lorenz aren't far behind at 247.

It seems like top to bottom 247 is stronger, but Webb at Scout is a difference make, and Allen Trieu is solid too.  

I sub to Scout for Sam Webb alone.

EDIT- This more from an information standpoint than a rankings standpoint.

Yup.

There was a post a while back about how different sites' rankings compare to actual production.  Don't feel like digging it up.

I believe it indicated Scout and 247 are pretty close at the top.

People keep saying Jourdan Lewis should have knocked it down.  Honestly, I'd rather he pick it.  It's not like it was an easy "catch it or knock it to the ground" gimme interception situation.  I have seen multiple instances where a DB jumps for that ball and tips it into the air and the WR catches it on the run.  Just intercepting it is the safer play.

Negative recruiting. From your talks with recruits and pulse on the landscape how often do you think it is happening to us? Has it gone up in recent years? Does it have an effect on most recruits or do you think many see it for what it is? Do you think Michigan employs it against other schools?

This is a good example of why you shouldn't rush to pass judgement. In life, and sports, we often categorize people or institutions as "good", "bad" etc. when no one actually knows what goes on in others lives.

I think this is a good example of why we should try to assume good intentions in all people, and be open and understanding. Certainly something I try to do and makes me a happier person when I do it.
