stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
Women's softball - undefeated
Hockey - Finishes #1
Men's Basketball - Beats Sparty twice - is NCAA tournement bound
Football - Finishes recruting remarkably strong - holds key players despite regime change
I'd say all things are returning to normal. All is right in the world......
the year of the Wolverine.

Would you? No?
How about you? No?
I definitely would not like to play them.

Woo Hoo!!!!! Suck it Sparty!!!
"We alway's did feel the same, we just saw it from a different point of view"
Anyone have a photo of Kalin Lucas smiling after making that second-half three? Boy, those sure were swell times.
"There was a time I could have been mistaken for Burt Reynolds. I had a moustache and so did he. But he was the number one star in the world, so there wasn't really much confusion."
I would love to see a transcript of what Morris was yelling to Sparty after he finished the lay up at the end of the game. You think he was wishing them well in their NIT run?
He said "get the fuck off my court." And then post game, they had to be separated. Hell yeah. Love the swagger. Fuck it- it feels good.
Smotty stepped it up today, props to that kid.
Not very sportsmanlike but I kind of loved Darius getting into Lucas' face after making the last layup. I love the swagger! Very showtime.
Not very sportsmanlike, are you serious? How many times has Sparty stuck it to UM players over the years? Go back to knitting.
cheat, cheat, and cheat some more, and when you get caught, do the right thing, lie!
Basketball players talking trash, Heavens!
Lucas was jawing too. Our guys just got the last word and Lucas got his feelings hurt. Expect to hear Sparty whinning about this as they shed tears of unfathomable saddness. I plan on drinking those tears in a martini glass with some gin, shaken not stirred, like James Freaking Bond.
"Nobody cares what you think!"
"There's five or 10 seconds left on the clock. A team normally, they're going to hold it out. He went all the way in and scored the layup," Lucas said. "But it's all good. We're just gonna try to see them again in the Big Ten tournament.
"I'll definitely remember that. I know Coach Izzo will remember that and the whole team will remember that."
Every man at some point is gonna lose a battle. He's gonna fight and he's gonna lose. But what makes him a man, is that in the midst of that battle he does not lose himself. This game is not over, this battle is not over. So let's hear it .
Sparty was predicted to be #2 in the nation, not just the conference. We were predicted by many to be cellar dwellers of the B1G, either placing second-last or last.
I remember my Sparty friend saying to me before the season " Hey man have fun battling for that last place spot, Iowa is pretty good this year!"
My dad played for Woody Hayes, and therefore I am a Michigan fan.
No matter what, I will graduate with a degree from U of M one day.
just took care of Purdue. Maybe your friend was right.
Inspiring haters to hate since 1817.
and has only Tom Crean to thank for keeping them out of the basement. His friend was not right.
So what does everyone think...if we lose to Illinois are we in as a 12/11 in the normal field, in the last four play-in, or out? I assume if we win, we're looking at a 10 seed at least.

Sweeping Sparty builds momentum for the BTT!
Michigan Resurgent? Michigan Resurgent!
The beatings will continue until the uniforms improve!
Check the game preview thread. I called M covering the spread. Thank you very much.
Abort, Retry, Fail?
I'm new. Is that Tom Brady, and why the muppets?
That's Lloyd Brady. Half Tom Brady, half Lloyd Christmas. The muppets are celebration for big games. Kittens for bad losses. Otters when we are sad.
For today, goodbye. For tomorrow, good luck. And forever, Go Blue.
also, shucks to Tim and his prediction of failure.
Henri the Otter of Ennui is for when we feel so beat down that we just dont care any more. To be sad - you still have to care.
I could +1 for bravery
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Lloyd Brady has what would best be called a preternatual ability to show up in crowd shots (TV and still) at Michigan football games. Don' know how he do it, he jus' do it. Regular readers of this blog consider him semi-talismanic and he was a celebrity in the UM fan community before he knew he was a celebrity in the UM fan community.
*sigh* how many more days til Denard, Mike Martin, and Lloyd Brady on TV again?
"You know, for a bartender/bookie, you're pretty judgmental."
Check the "It's Muppet Time!" thread, and see if you recognize the tunes. It's just expanded to other songs. Because Muppets are, well, cool.

I humbly suggest you start your own sports blog so that you will finally get the rarified level of discourse and sophisticated choices in celebratory images that are befitting your elevated and exceedingly mature, pants-wearing station in life.
Of course, nobody will come to your damn blog but that's your problem. Good luck!
… you'll just waste your time (and ours) with inane comments on someone else's blog? Maybe we'd all be better served if you started your own.
What is soooo sorry and pathetic about your life that you have to make comments like theses?

Having complaints, but no better suggestions. If playing tried and true Michigan band anthems in an original way doesn't meet your standard of adulthood, what means would be more appropriate to celebrate victory in a easy to post, recognizable, and concise way? You know, assuming you weren't just saying it to be a douche.
Celebrate bhgp style.
Man ball. Formerly, somebody else.
Just for all the pop-up messages on it.
But not too childish, no. :)
Filed the paperwork yet? Since you didn't have a legitimate answer to how you'd do it, you're pretty much planting yourself in the latter category.
If I could dong punch you, I would. I guess a neg will have to do in this case.

It's funny when people like you talk about maturity, because right now you are very obviously showing adolescent envy and disdain for the fact that Brian does something he loves with his own rules, while you probably have some shit job you hate. At the very least you're projecting as a jaded whiner. Quite being a petty little turd.
but mostly I'm glad the game is over and we won. It seems like we won the game by the 10 minute mark of the second half; a rule should be inacted that if a team can't get a lead by the 10 minute mark of the second half, they've been mercied. If a team can't get on a run after all that, they deserve to lose. Another rule that should be made is that for every minute you are in the lead, you get a point; you should get something for leading so much. Our guys led the whole way; it seemed unfair to make them maintain their intensity and focus for so long and allow the Sparties to creep back into the game.
Oh well, it's over, Go Blue, and good luck in the BTT!
You have to play this game like somebody just hit your mother with a two-by-four. ~Dan Birdwell
I get the feeling you don't watch much basketball.
Eat that Tim Sullivan.
Should we start our own douche-y counter for this rivalry?
(It has been 161 days, and counting, since MSU has beat UM in football or basketball)
In New Orleans for Mardi Gras to find out that we won! I am going to drink so much and throw so many beads tonight. I just wish my plane had wifi so I could have watched the game.
Michigan just moved into 4th place in the B1G, AMIRIGHT?
[Granted, there's a mess of teams hovering around .500]
but seeded fifth behind Illinois based on the head-to-head loss.
However, if Penn State beats Minnesota, then Michigan moves into fourth because that brings into play their sweep of Penn State and PSU's 1-1 record against the other two teams. It would flip Illinois and Michigan (3-2 and 4-1 vs. the tied group respectively), and drop little brother to 7th thanks to their loss to Iowa (PSU was 1-0 against Iowa).
So, it really depends on which color uniform you want to see them wear against Illinois in Indianapolis.
Fourth seed. Not bad at all.
can't wait for Hoke to bitch slap dantonio back to little brother status officially, and the big brother doesn't need a counter cause we should be winning anyway. I can't remember sweeping MSU in basketball in a long time, this is the best result we've had in a while.
I find your lack of faith disturbing **force choke**
