"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
I could go on and say this is a societal thing, and that the culture in which these two grew up glorified guns and violence, but that wouldn't change the fact that this is hilarious. How stupid do people have to be? Why does Gilbert Arenas have a gun in his locker?
The doors have been officially closed. Can't beat possibly the worst team in the conference who's playing without their top player.
I wish they would bench Sims. Maybe that would light a fire under him. I don't know if I've ever seen such a physically talented player play with less emotion and fire.
Thread for the basketball game today vs. Indiana.
In the first 7 minutes, Douglass has a long three and Novak has two. Manny has been forcing it, and Indiana looks a little sloppy without Creek.
M will have to force turnovers to win this game. Luckily, the crowd has been pretty quiet because most of the Indiana students are not back yet.
More happy fun news for the basketball program today! Press release:
Associate Head Coach Dunn to Take Indefinite Leave of Absence
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan men's basketball coach John Beilein announced today (Tuesday, Dec. 29) Associate Head Coach Jerry Dunn will take an indefinite leave of absence from the
Wolverine program due to personal family matters.
"Presently, I have family matters that need my immediate attention," said Dunn. "Coach Beilein and the University have been gracious enough to allow me the time needed to do so."
"I fully support Jerry as he continues to focus on his family at this time," said Beilein. "We will be there and ready to assist as needed now and when he is ready to return."
Administrative Specialist Jeff Meyer will assume Dunn's duties during his absence from the program.
No word on what the "family matters" are, and I think it's probably best that we don't worry about speculating here. Best wishes to Coach Dunn, and hopefully he can get his family issues squared away ASAP and get back on the hardwood. In tandem with the bad news on Cronin earlier today, it's been a rough stretch for men's basketball.
Hopefully, a couple wins to start the Big Ten season will make us forget about any distractions, and the team can go on a run in the conference. A win against Indiana would go a long way towards restoring good vibes around the program.
Tough break (sorry for the pun) for Indiana, but this really could help Michigan. With two games against IU out of the first five, we really need wins in both to have a shot.
You don't hear of many broken knees. Usually ligaments or at least a mention of the knee cap. I hope he is able to recover fully for next season. Like it or not, the Big 10 needs Indiana to right itself sooner, rather than later.
