I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby
Patrick Hruby is doing God's work.
first comment: "EVERY ATHLETE HAS ASPIRATIONS OF WINNING AND WE HAVE OUR FAVORITES BUT IT IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO OTHER STUDENTS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS, TOO!"
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?
There's a lot of basketball to be played yet. A team can't win the Big Ten Championship in January or Febuary, but it certainly can lose it. I want to see this team peak at NCAA Tournament time. If they are playing 5-on-5, as opposed to a dreaded 5-on-8 matchup against Duke, they can beat anyone. Unfortunately, any team in the Big Ten can spring an upset at any time, too.
As long as the Wolverines can grab a 1, 2, or 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament, they will have a great chance to make the Final Four. To me, that is what really matters.
I agree its way to early to be dreaming of winning the B1G. I agree UM is looking to be the cream of the crop or at worst in the top 2, and I believe the national media is under-appreciating them thus far. But it's just a matter of time until someone beats them and in this conference outside the bottom 2-3 teams there's no shame in that.
Once UM does lose I think the national media will hound them because they don't think UM is that good and they will be justified in their beliefs. That said the only thing UM can do is stay focused and win. Good things come to those who persevere.
Illinois is for real.
IU is still very good and very dangerous. Can we match up inside?
TSIO can still give us fits on a good day.
Minnesota looks to be for real.
MSU will likely not beat us but wouldn't surprise me if they snag one. They still have talent.
Outside these 5 teams I don't see anyone beating UM, but on an off-day anything can happen.
Isn't UM ranked second in the country?? I could understand that comment if they were ranked 7th, 8th, etc, but the media has them second. The announcers during the games I've seen are usually gushing over how solid UM looks.
The road against OSU, IU, Minny, Illinois, MSU and even IOWA will be tough
It's tough being Blue in Columbus!!!
All in for some manball.
don't take anything the wrong way, nobody is replying to the comment above. I got distracted and didn't hit the cave button on a guy who needed it, and these replies were to a questionably intelligent assessment of Michigan's roster.
The key games are Indiana, any road game, and any rival game (MSU, OSU). Feb 2 is the first Indiana game. What will be fun is the final game is Indiana at home.
...just one man's opinion.
HALOL at anyone that thinks Illinois will contend for the big ten title. They will have some unexpected wins, but will not be consistent enough over the course of the season. IU will be the biggest threat with Minny, MSU, and OSU probably next in that order.
Except for the other thing. That hurts the most. But the lack of respect hurts the second most.
Injury?...one game at a time plz.
11 other big ten teams
