I don't think they changed Les at all actually

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

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?
Good game to you, hopefully we have a more competitive first half when you guys come to Ann Arbor.
I have no doubt that your Wolverines will show up for the whole game in AA... It seemed like OSU played a little Tressel ball in the second half, trying to waste time and playing "not to lose." It almost cost the Bucks and it was not good for my blood pressure. You have a great team and I am really impressed with your coach. How long has Beilein (sp?) been there?
Behind enemy lines, but I come unarmed...
Six years now, things have been much better for him as of late. There was a period where certain people around here were calling for his head.
Poise from THJ and Trey. That was the most disappointing thing I saw out there

Gotta give some of the credit to tOSU's defense.
cheat, cheat, and cheat some more, and when you get caught, do the right thing, lie!
That is a nice thing to say, and I appreciate it coming from a huge Buckeye fan. I have a feeling that Aaron Craft isn't too well liked around these parts, but he is one of my favs because of his tough D. With that said, I would trade you a few unnamed players for Trey Burke :)
Let's be honest, nobody expected to go undefeated. It's always tough to lose to Ohio State, but we really didn't come out to play. If we hadn't gotten ourselves into a 21 point defecit, the outcome would be a completely different story. Hopefully this is one of those "learning experiences" and we can take out Minnesota on the road.
My biggest concern is our disappearance of points. We were averaging 80+ points and shooting 51.4% coming into the Nebraska game, and since then we've scored 62 and 53 and shot 38.9% and 38.3%, respectively.
The biggest problem with this team is the same that every beilein team has: Too much reliance on the 3. That's going to be a problem come March. They need to do more inside, drive to the basket and draw fouls and stop settling for jacking 3s. I think that's all we did with 5 straight possessions in the last 2 minutes. No set plays at all...just dribble and jack.
And thank you for actually using the proper name of our rival. This "Ohio" crap makes us look stupid after last year's NCAAs. We lost to a good Ohio State team, we don't play the Bobcats this year. And road wins in the Big Ten are going to be at a serious premium, so there is no shame in losing today. It was bound to happen. Expect a dogfight at Minny too. We got a tough stretch ahead with @MN, IU, MSU, and WI in the next few weeks. We'll see what this team is made of.
Can't put this on the freshmen. Burke and THJ were terrible today.
The team has suffered from slow starts all year but were able to overcome. Today that caught up to them. What turns Mister Hand into Mister Fist is losing to Ohio, but it is one loss--this isn't football, a loss doesn't kill your season. And this might be what the team needs--a good excuse for Beilein to raise hell in practice and get the team back into a disciplined non-3 chucking offense.
The pick and roll. You know teams like state, minny and Illinois are going to do that when we play them. I think using the Wings THJ or Stauskas would be a good way to combat this bc it would get a shorter defender in Trey's face and would allow those guys to catch the ball going to the rim.
Props to Beilein for his recruiting... Just looking at your depth chart and I have a feeling you will be a force for the next few years to come.
Did anyone else notice the announcers kept saying Michigan didn't have depth? We played 8 players (9 if you count Horford's 2 min) and they played 7 (8 if you count Laquinin ross' 3 min). so whats the big deal???
Go Blue. Greetings from SEC country.
yet again we have proved that when it comes time to show character we fall down...
We are currently soft ...both in basketball and football and cant win the program defining games.....we need to retract our expectations from mich sports ...they are good but not great and lag behind the top echelon of sports programs in the country..(ready for a flamebait tag)
I think self-schadenfreude is officially a thing!
