Michigan(2) vs Ohio State (1) Football Game

The North American Sports Network has finally come to their f@$king senses and will broadcast the Michigan v Ohio State football game today. I don’t know what they were thinking when they originally decided on another college football game. Heck, even if you didn’t go to Michigan or Ohio State, if you are a genuine college football fan, you’ll be watching the game. Thus, I am quite pleased and thinking so will the other Michigan fans who have been flooding my inbox in the last few weeks trying to figure out where to watch the game. With this change, I […]

Bo Schembechler

I have fond memories of going to Michigan football games at The Big House on Saturday mornings during football season from 1988 to 1992. Bo Schembechler is big part of my memory from those early days. Plus I remember how crushed we all were when he retired. He is a legend who will be greatly missed. Football Legend Bo Schembechler Passes Away November 17th 2006 ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Legendary football coach Bo Schembechler passed away Friday morning (Nov. 17) due to heart failure at Detroit Providence Hospital at the age of 77. As the winningest head coach in Michigan […]

College Students and Career Coaches

Most students are focused on meeting all the requirements to get the degree, that they often don’t put any real thought into how they’d like to use that degree upon completion.

With that, I’m really surprised that schools that offer liberal arts programs aren’t requiring students to participate in self-awareness/career development workshops […]

The Association is working to raise $150,000 to cover costs of the Little Big House project. Generosity has always been the way of the Leaders and Best, and participating in The Little Big House […]

A First Choice, and 20 Backups

During the Summer and Fall of 1987, I spent many hours obsessing and preparing applications to 8 Universities. At the time, I thought 8 was too many. But the wise college counselors I had access to via the Urban Scholars Program assured me that as the college admissions process was becoming more and more competitive, this was necessary to ensure I had choices. Partly because it wasn’t just about where I got accepted, it was also about who gave me the best financial aid package. Now, here it is almost 20 years later and many students are applying to twice […]
