I walked past him in the concourse after one of the games at the Palace last March. Despite the fact that Michigan had won the game, he looked so bummed. I also found it odd that he was walking by himself in the concourse so shortly after the game had ended.
Kudos to him for sticking it out at Michigan. Not that I wanted Mitch to go down, but maybe it was J-Mo's karmic reward for staying at Michigan...when he easily could've bailed.
And he's put up a great performance this year, leading us to the outright Big Ten title.

What a great tribute to J-Mo, who definitely has earned all of the cliches like "cornerstone of the program" and "brought us back to respectability" etc.

Thanks to you I have no idea how to correctly spell his name! (and that's just fine with me)
And, to stay on topic, I just don't see how Wisconsin is a #2 seed.

I'm not so sure Beilein would've recruited all five of them...given the personal profile of the type of player he prefers to have on the team...

...one game and stay healthy and get focused on the NCAA Tournament.

Scouting things out in preparation for the Final Four.
|1 week 6 days ago||Loved this...||
You eloquently encapsulated my thoughts re: the news of the last week.
Could Hoke's moves be defined as "desperation?"
Perhaps, but sometimes "desperation" is a good thing.
Making drastic (and educated) changes to things that aren't working is a good thing.
You can make a strong argument for all of the changes...and point to all of them as having a positive impact.

We are getting it. We are the top-ranked seven-loss team in the country and ranked ahead of many other major conference teams with fewer losses. Based on our season so far, #16 seems about right.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Week 11 Here!||
Last year we were week 10 and Coach Carr was the faculty forum speaker. I posted a recap of his remarks shortly thereafter.
Love ending the summer up at Michigania...although we usually end up missing the first home football game of the year.
I was driving home during The Horror.

With ten minutes left to go in the game, it appears as though Kenpom was off on this one. Ace, it's time for you to start coming up with your own predictions and stop relying on Kenpom.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||No simple answer||
There's no simple answer to the questions you are asking, as each situation is different.
Picking a major isn't as big of a decision as picking where you are going to go play football for four (or five) years.
Each child matures at a different rate. Some 15 year olds are able to make mature decisions...while keeping in mind the long-term ramifications of these decisions. Conversely, my 42 year old sister in law isn't - and never has been - capable of intelligently making these types of decisions.
You're trying to paint with a broad brush here...asking broad questions...when the reality is that there is no one answer.
Each person is different...each circumstance is different...and the ramifications of any decision can vary from minor to life-changing.
Choosing where to play football for four/five years is a life-changing decision. If mom has a legitimate concern about her son playing football at School X, hell yes she should jump in and prevent her son from making a decision that could negatively affect the rest of his life in a significant way.
Choosing a major, while somewhat life-changing, is not nearly in the same league....
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Bad parenting?||
You're kidding, right?
A parent has many obligations...one of which is to ensure their children make smart decisions.
If my child wanted to go play football at a school, but I felt that the school was wrong for him....hell, yes, I would prevent him from doing so.
We obviously have no idea what happened at MSU, but if I was told that School X football players don't need to "play school"...or that my son had friends who were bad influences who were going to be at School X...or that there was a toxic culture there...or that there was rampant drug use or drinking at the School X football team...or whatever...I would absolutely step in and prevent him from playing at School X.
As a parent, doing this is my right, my obligation and my duty.
Not to sound too much like a "get off my lawn-er," but I think we can all imagine the negative results of letting a child (and, yes, an 18 year old is still a child) make all of their own choices.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I'm the parent||
of two Tweens and if I had a serious concern about a crucial decision they were about to make I would certainly exert my parental right and duty to get them to change that decision.

I will be sitting by mine all day.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||No need to duck||
My post obviously went way way over you're head. I hope you seen what I did their.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I||
could care less that your so upset about the grammar mistake's that people make on are favorite web sight.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Again||
you are proving my point. You are reading a lot in to my post. Which is a reflection on you. Not me.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||The fact that you think||
it's sketchy is more a reflection on you then it is on me. And I'm not sure how you know what "everyone" is thinking.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Not sure how this is a||
humble brag but whatever.
|6 weeks 8 hours ago||Timing is interesting||
I met someone just over two weeks ago who works in the Daily sports department. He told me the story was going to be published on 1-13. Wondering why it was delayed....
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Recruiting Skills||
Recruiting skills are just as vital as the coaching skills IMHO.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Mindset is huge||
Lots of people get stuck in the music/culture/personal style they had in high school and college...and never evolve in these areas.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Congrats on your grad!||
Crossing my fingers for a UM grad in 2023 and one in 2026.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Agree Completely.||
I'm on the best shape of my life at 46. Watch what you eat. Exercise regularly. Pretty simple actually
|8 weeks 6 days ago||$10||
Or you could take one of the other suggestions here and pay the additional $10 for one year to add your spouse to the $69 annual fee.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||$1,400 over 50 years...||
...is about $30 per year...assuming you live to be 72 or so...so not such a bad deal for a lifetime membership.
There are large groups who come to Michiganian and just have one alumnus in the group...so this may be an effort to control this issue.
There is a waiting list for every week other than weeks 1 and 11.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Lifetime Membership||
Not sure how much it is now but my wife and I did it in out late 20's. I'm sure it's much less expensive than renewing it annually and for those of us who are disorganized eliminates the chance of a lapsed membership.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||$10||
I would say the Michigania experience is worth the additional $10 investment.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Stauskas!||
More than just a shooter...the first reference thereof. Wussed out and decided not to make the trek from Birmingham...so watching on the couch with halftime shoveling on the agenda.
