09/20/2017 - 10:16am Have hired Ross & Penn undergrads

Wharton > Penn > Ross > Brown

I'm a Michigan econ grad, so I understand that I'm somewhat dissing my own education, but Wharton/Penn kids command higher salaries, get into top 5/10 MBA programs at higher rates, and have greater access to top companies (Goldman, Google, Apple, McKinsey, etc.) at internship/graduation time.

When we hire Ross kids, we're competing against Ford, KPMG, Accenture. When we hire Penn alums we are competing against Google, and corporate strategy teams at Cap 1, P&G, etc. When we hire Wharton alums, we are competing against Goldman, McKinsey, Bain, TPG.

Just my $0.02, but if your kid can get into Penn/Wharton, then that's probably the best long-term bet for them.

First, I think we should welcome nice and friendly fans from all fanbases.

Second, I like the premise of the question and think that Bosa will get the "bigger" stats (sacks, TFLs, etc.), especially if he continues to play on the outside. IMO, I would rather have Gary over Bosa because filling an interior line is harder than the outside.

Just my $0.02

Really appreciate the work, Alum96!

06/08/2015 - 2:19pm I'm in a similar boat

An MBA only makes sense for me if: 1) I go to a top 10-type program AND 2) I decide I want to be in banking or consulting because the debt + foregone wages are too big of a loss to cover the increase in salary w/ an MBA (even including faster rate of comp growth w/ an MBA).

My advice: if you want an MBA, try for a top 5/10 program (HBS, Stanford GSB, Wharton, Kellogg, etc.), and if you don't get in/don't want to get an MBA, see if your employer will pay for your EMBA. Every EMBA I've met is company-sponsored and works full-time, so you won't have any debt and you'll be making $$.

Once the video was released

Thanks for posting the link, OP. Here's hoping we save some lives.

03/20/2014 - 11:24am I lol'd at work

and got weird looks from my coworkers after seeing this pic. Well done.

He was a 1st rounder and hits within 50 and 60 yards on a pretty regular basis

06/18/2013 - 3:02pm Wish there was a way

to download to your 360 while at work. That'd be glorious.

Thanks for the info!

06/02/2013 - 1:51am Random Question

I know nothing about softball, so I wanted to know why they scuff the balls? That seems counter-intuitive to me for them to scuff the balls before using them, but I've never played.

05/29/2013 - 3:02pm Did the same thing

it's so crazy to think Jake Ryan was low 3-star, high 2-star prosect. Really makes you wonder the kind of growth we can get from these "very high ceiling" prospects with Hoke and Mattison coaching them.

05/02/2013 - 1:52pm Fox Sports 1 could come into play

and given that BTN is 49% owned by News Corp, I think you'll see Fox take a keen interest on protecting some CFB from the ABC/ESPN duo. I'd expect Fox to pay more than market value simply to ensure that FS1 has enough content to be competitive with the ESPNs.

05/02/2013 - 1:43pm If SEC Network Comes in at $1/sub

And you live in, say Atlanta, you'd be paying $10 + whatever margin your cable provider adds on in sports costs for just 4 channels:  ESPN, ESPN2, Fox Sports South, and SEC Network (Source: SNL Kagan). It'd be worth it if you're a sports fan, but they're fleecing everyone else.
