I think you're confused...

Ryan Mallett played...as in, he was on the team, wore the uniform. The term "decommitment" refers to never signing your national letter of intent because you changed your verbal commitment to another school before national signing day. This was not the case with Mallett at all. Mallett signed his LOI, and was a Wolverine at one point. He then transferred to another institution to play in an offense that better fit his QB toolset.

I think you're missing the point of the post, and if anything, taking things out of context, or misinterpreting them.

I actually went to school there for 5 years, so I've been fortunate enough to experience it a few times. I'd love nothing more than to take in the scenery at Rice-Eccles....but a C-Springs sports bar will have to suffice.

I was trying desperately to go to UTL I, but my commander wouldn't grant my leave. Instead, I worked 12 hours that day and came home and watched it on TV in my living room by myself. I was exhausted but wouldn't let myself go to sleep until the clock read 00:00. Glad I stayed up.

The district is shut down. The roads are somewhat plowed, but it's pretty ghost townish out there. Supposed to get 3 more inches tonight. Yay...

Not sure what you mean by a flawed promotion system, but you are correct in saying that it does not favor Academy grads, per se. It favors those that perform in the top echelon in their job, regardless of commissioning source. On the contrary, the assignment system is a bit different for officers than it is for enlisted. Enlisted members are pretty much at the mercy of an assignment system, save a few very high-performing individuals in higher ranks (at least E-6's). That said, officers have a bit more say in their assignment, as there are many selectively-manned and/or high-profile assignments that require by-name reccomendations from superiors (i.e. commanders). These by-name reccomendations are made easier by having a "network" to interact with. Obviously, the academy network very much comes to the forefront as one of the primary means to make these reccomendations. These assignments can then bolster your officer resume, which, in-turn, then can place you above your peers when it comes to promotion time. So, you could say that it has the potential to affect your promotions and assignments, granted you're a hard worker and your commander sees that. You can't be dead weight and expect one of these assignments, obviously.

05/04/2013 - 11:44am After graduation and

After graduation and commissioning, it's valid to say that Academy, ROTC, and OTS officers as 2Lts/Ensigns are all on an even playing field. Granted, the quality of education and work ethic differs vastly, as you're simply going to, more often than not, get a better product out of an academy grad due to the education received and the amount of work put in during their 4 years. Not necessarily everytime, as there are very high-performing individuals from civilian institutions (like the Citadel, which I have a profound respect for) that perform at extremely high levels, even perhaps placing them above their academy counterparts. I'm simply speaking in generalities. However, keep in mind that it's just not about the education. It's about the experiences and the leadership lessons learned from a 4-year "leadership laboratory" experience that ROTC programs simply cannot replicate. Academy cadets/midshipmen are immersed in it every day. There's something to be said about the kind of individual that gets into, survives, and graduates from a service academy. It is these things, ALONG with the network that benefits academy grads long after graduation, while in uniform and as a civilian. This isn't a knock on ROTC by any means. Please don't take it that way, but there's a reason for the selectivity that goes into the admissions process and there's something to be said about the attrition that occurs from entry to basic training to graduation day.

He's the most decorated basketball player in Michigan hoops history. Even more-so than Cazzie Russell. Not putting #3 up there would be a crime.

Because Gardner didn't play QB for 4 years in high school and under RR and Brady Hoke, like ever...at all. I'm sure he forgot everything....

10/21/2012 - 11:19am Next to Alabama

That will probably be the best defense we face for the rest of the season. MSU's defense is easily the best in the conference (statistically) and one of the better ones in the country. Couple that with the rivalry aspect and that minor detail where UM hadn't beaten MSU since Carr was in Schembechler Hall, and yea, I'd call that a signature win (Especially for Denard as senior going out with a win over lil' bro - payback for all that cheap talking they were doing week 1).

Wow. What an angry group of 5th grade graduates.

08/06/2012 - 10:47pm I did

I did because I went to the Air Force Academy. Very, very few (I'm talking like 2 cadets out of a class of 1,000 or so) didn't get them. As a matter of fact, if you didn't get one, the Commandant of Cadets (a Brigadier General) would call you into his/her office and ask you why you are not getting one...so, yea...not the kind of attention you want from that particular individual. Additionally, there is an event at the end of your junior year called 'Ring Dance' where you invite a date to and get all fancy-shmancied up for to receive your class ring. It's a pretty big event...probably the second most important event of your Academy career next to graduation. It's a pretty good time.

The United States has no manned space program. When the space shuttle retired, we lost our way to send people and supplies to the international space station and simply put people in orbit. SpaceX is a private company that has more or less taken up that mantle from a commercial perspective. They do not recieve government funding and are not sponsored by NASA. As of right now, we have rely entirely on Russia to get people and supplies to and from the international space station. We shouldn't have to, but that's reality. SpaceX is trying to put the ball back in our court.
