  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

Honestly (and I know this may not sit well on a sports blog) I think that war heroes, civil rights leaders, and revolutionary thinkers should get statues. Sports coaches? No.

Blu:

I always appreciate insight from our competitors. Agree with you on the impact of his deommitment, but Solomon wasn't the only one to leave. Is there a sense of a message being communicated in the wrong way (a bigger program message; not the letter snafu) by the staff?

Some debate on Mgoblog as to whether this UM staff is actually really good at recruiting or, in fact, given to silly ass mistakes like this and the one Mattison made with Nebraska recruit Daishon Neal when he suggested that Neal, whom they were recruiting, would not be able to get into Michigan were he not a football player. Stupid shit that lets talent slip away.

Understanding that the people "in the know" know a lot more than we do and this could be much ado about nothing, but it's concerning that many of us are worried that a Smith tweet could harm the recruitment of Lindsey, a player that Zach has busted his ass to get to Columbus. I'm really hoping this prompts a more serious discussion about social media responsibility.

I think you could use it in primary and secondary education as either a consultant or, if paired with further education, a curriculum director. There is an increasing emphasis on the engagement of African-American students in the classroom and this would seem to be a good prerequisite. Hope I did not dip my toes into any political banter; just trying to offer my two cents on what sounded like a serious question.
