Hadn't been on TLS in months, then came back to see the word on the street re: Michigan's fall from the T10. This thread, though... I don't even... If there's sort of award for being the most TLS thing TLS has ever produced, this ought to win it.

Just to recap:

Don't go at sticker (if that needed to be said), but Michigan is still plenty competitive with a serious financial aid package. Decline is always bad, and is reflective of Michigan under performing its historic peer schools in the T14 in employment (and the ever-nebulous prestige). If it doesn't get its employment together, I could see it slipping a little more to reach parity with NU/Cornell. So....dropping to #11 changed basically nothing about the actual strengths of Michigan or why one would choose to attend. News at 11.

Reading between the insanity ITT: slips are bad, breaking a tier is bad, TLS goes nutso, UT rides to victory in the coming rankings apocalypse.

Did I miss anything?

Lord this thread is a trainwreck.

Oh, is THAT what happened to Detroit?

Brianiac is probably the most effective troll I have seen on this site.

This is so over the top douchey I kind of want to call troll. Is this a BiglawAssociateV20 alt? Meanwhile everyone ITT is tripping over each other to apologize to this bro on behalf of law students lol. Just WTF


Seriously, though. WTF.

What's up with Michigan?

You have to remember that there were a lot of injury problems this season. Losing Derrick Walton and Caris Levert left Michigan without half of its early-season production and with few true leaders. Then you mix in Spike Albrecht's foot troubles, DJ Wilson's season-ending injury, and the on-again-off-again injuries from Ricky Doyle...add in a few July-signee freshmen and it was a mess.
