the Sports Business Association on campus is a great club that organizes events such as guest speakers (Dan Gilbert, John Moores, Jim Irsay), career fairs (the Palace of Auburn Hills), and alumni networking events.  If you decide to come here, definitely get involved with the SBA.

12/20/2010 - 12:11pm I am currently a Junior in

I am currently a Junior in the Sport Management program at Michigan.  I agree wtih a lot of the comments posted above.... most SM majors believe/want  the program in the B School.  There may be more prestigious SM schools, such as UMass and Ohio, but if you're looking to stay in state, it's hard to go against the opportunity to work with the University of Michigan Athletic Department.  On campus there are plenty of opportunities for field experience, and another benefit is that Detroit is just 45 min away.  It's true that the field experience and networking are imperative in the search for a job.

It's pretty selective as far as admissions go...maybe not as selective as engineering or the B school persay, but it hold its own.  Required courses include marketing, sales, public speaking, accouting, econ, finance, org behavior, yeah, pretty business-oriented.  And to the person who said virtually all football players major in SM, I do not believe this is true.  I know JB Fitz and David Molk do, probably a few others, but the application into the 2nd level of the program weeds most of them out.

If there were ever a time to break from tradition, it would be now.  I absolutely love the #1 and its correlation with great WR's, but Denard is clearly the biggest game-changer on the offense,, and he's wearing a non-descript #16..,,just sayin.

I move back Sunday

Welcome Week will be awesome


08/24/2010 - 4:59pm Absolutely love this pick

Absolutely love this pick up. With the way they can get to the rack, it looks like Burke and Brundidge might be able to play at the 2 while Darius handles point with Hardaway at the wing and Smotz wing/forward, shaping up nicely.  I guess this means no go for Stauskas and possibly Pangos.

08/22/2010 - 10:54pm Valiant

"Valiant" is just such a valiant plate in itself man...I'd go with that

08/22/2010 - 5:43pm I mean

isn't it more about the principle of the matter rather than the facts of one isolated case?

08/22/2010 - 5:18pm Absolutely love his attitude

Absolutely love his attitude and tone...we all know RR tells it like it is with the team and this was as optimistic and enthusiastic as I've seen him with the media

08/21/2010 - 6:27pm Great update

Denard showed better accuracy than Tate huh? What a difference a year makes

08/20/2010 - 12:06pm No

Most of the red shows up on the east and south sides of the stadium.  Students are required to sit in sections 25-31, in the northwest corner.

08/19/2010 - 7:46pm I mean

if you look at it as intended to get you fired up to supports the 2010 Michigan Wolverines this year, then no, it's not a great choice for ESPN.  But the song itself, without the ESPN/college football/pump-up context...I love it.

08/18/2010 - 10:52pm I haven't been banged in

I haven't been banged in awhile.  And that's not a positive situation.

08/18/2010 - 6:08pm I broke my collarbone in an

I broke my collarbone in an early-season game my senior year of high school.  It was only high school but believe me, football (sports in general) was the center of my world.  Hell, I'm majoring in sport mangement.  When I was told I was done for the season, for my life, I just cried.  You're helpless; you can't do anything to change the fact that what you busted your ass for as long as you can remember is gone.

08/15/2010 - 12:10pm Rec Sports

most rec sports jobs are just about filled...though there is an IM referee meeting I believe September 8th at the IMSB for anyone interested in reffing.  Check the rec  sports website, I know there's info there.

08/11/2010 - 7:37pm Very interesting.  If

Very interesting.  If anyone's read Moneyball, the basic premise of the book is that Bily Beane crushes the age-old ideas of baseball scouting (based on a player's looks, potential, tools)  because he was indeed scouted by those premises and failed as a baseball player.  He instead purposefully distanced himself from any notions he may have conceived as a playerso that in his current position as GM he could make objective decisions.  And he basically changed the game in doing so.  I think this would be the best approach for any coach/manager who has played the game.

08/11/2010 - 6:32pm It seems like the sky is

It seems like the sky is falling because next year, we'll have JT Floyd, Cullen Christian, James Rogers, Courtney Avery, smaller Talbott, along with 2-3 freshmen at cornerback.

Kris, if you go to Auburn, you'll be at just another one of those SEC schools.  If you come here, you'll be at Michigan. Michigan. The Leaders and the Best.

08/03/2010 - 2:29pm As a Packers fan...

this is the best news since my foreshadowing dream that Michigan wins 10 games this year, whether he actually retires or not.  I love almost nothing more than to see the Vikings BEING HIS BITCH and allowing their entire fate to be determined by the day-to-day whims of one man, a player no less.  I couldn't be prouder of the way the Packers' brass handled Favre two years ago and ran their organization like any should be run: by the bosses. I think this never-ending drama is what the Vikings had coming to them.

08/03/2010 - 12:32pm Glad to see Marvin Robinson

Glad to see Marvin Robinson has a "natural gift" at safety.  I was under the impression he was going to be tried at one of the Spur/Bandit spots though and Cameron Gordon the Deep Safety?

If I woke up from a coma in December and saw that class, I'd know that we'd beaten UConn, ND, and MSU and probably have gotten 8 wins

I own 2 Taylor Swift CD's and can sing many songs word-for-word.  Game over.

07/29/2010 - 8:00pm Crawford or Drew

I'd be stoked if we ended up with Crawford or Drew and didn't give up the farm.  Dunn is a guy I've never liked, if just because no team seems to want him for more than 2 years.  He is a guy though that we could put in front of Cabrera, so he sees more pitches in the zone and maybe doesn't strike out 20000 times (otherwise, him, Ajax and Inge in the same lineup would strikeout too much for me to want to watch).  Ultimately I'd prefer Guillen at DH, so he'll only make 2 trips to the DL instead of 4, but that's pending one of our other current options at 2B improves a lot.   Some tiny bit of me still thinks Worth or Sizemore or Rhymes can be a Pedroia- type guy near the top.

In the order of pitchers you mention, I'd take Webb, Lilly, then Vasquez- any of these guys, and I wouldn't be cheap about it.  Bonderman, I would be cheaper on.  Sorry Bondo. 

07/29/2010 - 7:46pm Yeah, I have noticed this. 

Yeah, I have noticed this.  Here's to hoping a few turn out similar to Verlander.

Kellen, I'm glad you noticed our helmets have wings. 

07/29/2010 - 10:39am Our receivers coach in high

Our receivers coach in high school also coached a rocket team of ten/eleven year-olds.  I don't know if they did no-huddle or whatnot, but they used the spread formation with 4-5 WR every play and they killed it.  And they loved it.  So, I think even at that age, if they win, then they're having fun.

But, I kind of do agree with Not a Blue Fan.  The O-lineman could barely remember what the snapcount was; unless these kids are more advanced or more serious about the game, a no huddle would seem advanced for that age group.

07/28/2010 - 5:17pm I got a misdemeanor once

Should the university kick me out?

07/27/2010 - 7:21pm sections, yes; rows, no

If you get there early enough you can get whatever row you want, except bottom 5.  When I was a freshman we stood row 20-40, section 25, pretty much every game.  Just make sure the seats you are taking are from the sorority girls; you won't have to put up a fight, and you're justified in that you aren't stealing from someone who properly values the seats' worth

is the East Coast region so important as to ruin the midwestern footprint? It's what makes the Big Ten the Big Ten.

hopefully the "unwillingness to quit" part holds true over the ups and downs of the season...I remember at times last season the defense definitely underperformed in the 2nd half of the year, even if its ceiling wasn't very high to begin with

This post got me more pumped up for the season than anything else has so far.  For that, +1

07/21/2010 - 5:41pm Drew Dileo is simply the Mike

Drew Dileo is simply the Mike Hart-version of slot receiver.  How many guys that small are eager to lay the wood like that on every play? I'll take any recruit that plays like that

07/20/2010 - 8:04pm Eminem gets the students

Eminem gets the students fired up.  The band has great traditional value, but the students above it can't hear it.  Do you want the students to be loud and in the game or not?

Generalizing 20,000 people in the student section as poser-frat boys who don't care  about the game is not a good idea, either.  Most care vehemently.
