The Sweet Smell of Roses

Not to gloat or anything, but Michigan kicked Ohio State’s butt yesterday. Oh yeah! So not only are we Big Ten Champs, but we’re going to the Rose Bowl! The Rose Bowl! The Rose Bowl! So hail hail to Michigan, the champions of the West! Btw, if you’re a Wolverine fan in Chicago consider attending the 72nd Annual Sports-o-Rama sponsored by the University of Michigan Club of Chicago on Thursday, December 4th. I’ll be there and so with Michigan football coach, Lloyd Carr.

Wolverines Dominate Wildcats

Michigan kicked Northwestern’s ass today. Thank Goodness as prior games I’ve seen on the road have ended in disaster. Final score today: Michigan 41, Northwestern 10. Michigan’s score would have been a bit higher but due to penalties, 2 touchdowns were called back. That’s fine with a second rate team like Northwestern, but here’s hoping they get there act today for Ohio State next week. That will be the 100th meeting of the two teams and bragging rights are at stake. So can’t wait to watch the game at Crush next week. But savoring the moment of watching today’s game […]

Well, Senate Democrats are considering a proposal that would take away federal funds from those schools that admit students under legacy program.

At least with affirmative action, underprivildged children who meet certain requirements are given an opportunity […]

Oh how I love this score: #5 Michigan: 38, #15 Notre Dame: 0. Yeah baby! Last year my best guy friend and I were in South Bend, Indiana when Michigan lost to Notre Dame.

Hail! to Michigan the leaders and best Hail! to the victors valiant Hail! to the conqu’ring heroes Hail! Hail! to Michigan, the champions of the […]

Michigan’s New Admissions Policy

I suppose it’s somewhat symbolic that Michigan rolled out their new undergraduate admissions policy on the 40th anniversary of March on Washington. Based on what I’ve read so far, it looks like the policy is being modeled after the law school program which the US Supreme Court upheld. I’m sure some will think it doesn’t go far enough, but I’m proud of the fact that Michigan has responded in a timely fashion with a plan that will ensure adequate representation of qualified minority students. More importantly, that Michigan continues to be at the forefront of the whole diversity issue. Education […]
