I wonder if what happened in 1974 was a reaction to the "Rose Bowl hosing," as you put it.

There's one that would fit Morgan well—the Iron Man Award:

It's also not on equal footing because the 1989 National Champions banner is set off by itself in the Crisler rafters, highlighting its greater significance.

Basically, there's nothing in Brandon's contract similar to the specific bonuses outlined in Smith's.

I don't have a problem with this considering that, as this article points out, Clemson has far exceeded expectations this season, having been picked to finish 14th out of 15 in the ACC and then going on to win 10 conference games. Why not celebrate an unexpectedly good season at the end of the final home game?
Consider also that Clemson has a sorry history in basketball, having won just one conference title (1990) and having never reached the NCAA tourney Final Four. They did make it to the Elite Eight once, but that was way back in 1980. They haven't made the Sweet Sixteen since 1997.

|2 weeks 6 days ago||Yes||
I messed that up—3 for first team, 1 for third. Since I can't edit the above, I'll transfer a corrected version into the OP.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Consensus standings||
The consensus picks are determined by assigning 1 point for first team, 2 for second, and 3 for third (if there is one). The top five plus ties are named consensus first team; the next five plus ties are second team. Here's what the standings look like, with the AP still to come:
9 - Nick Johnson, Arizona
9 - Doug McDermott, Creighton
9 - Jabari Parker, Duke
8 - Shabazz Napier, UConn
8 - Russ Smith, Louisville
7 - Sean Kilpatrick, Cincinnati
6 - Andrew Wiggins, Kansas
5 - Nik Stauskas, Michigan
4 - Cleanthony Early, Wichita State
4 - C.J. Fair, Syracuse
3 - T.J. Warren, North Carolina
2 - Melvin Ejim, Iowa State
2 - Marcus Paige, North Carolina
2 - Fred VanVleet, Wichita State
2 - Scottie Wilbekin, Florida
It appears that the only way that Stauskas would not be a consensus second-team All-American would be for Early, Fair, and Warren all to pass him, which seems highly unlikely as Warren would have to be named first team by the AP.

Not sure about the rankings, but here are Kenpom predictions for those games versus how they actually came out:
Kansas: predicted U-M win, 69-68 — U-M won 87-85
Florida: predicted U-M loss, 67-62 — U-M won 79-59
Syracuse: predicted U-M win, 67-66 — U-M won 61-56
Louisville: predicted U-M loss, 71-66 — U-M lost 82-76
So Kenpom actually had Michigan favored in a couple of those games, although the Florida prediction was completely off the mark.
But I certainly agree with your point #3. The obsession with Kenpom on this site and elsewhere is out of hand. And as others have said, what about the Beilein factor?

I was just about to save a post about the game—good thing I checked first. Here's what I wrote:
After dropping the first two games of their Big Ten opening series with Indiana, the Michigan baseball team came back with a 4-3 victory today punctuated by a spectacular 8th inning catch by right fielder Jackson Lamb (embedded below). Runners were at the corners with two outs at the time, so the catch saved at least one run, if not two.
Travis Maezes was the hero on offense, hitting a bases-clearing, three-run double in the fourth to put the Wolverines up 4-2. Michigan got good relief work from a series of pitchers, including Jacob Cronenworth, who went the final two innings to pick up the save; he's now 5-for-5 in save opportunities.
This was the type of win—over the projected top conference team—that could give the team some momentum as they continue their Big Ten slate.

It's funny that you mention "passion" because wasn't that one of the "p" words Amaker inevitably used in his infrequent media appearances (mainly the perfunctory postgame radio interview)? I just recall him frequently talking about the team's "passion" and "pride"—and there may have been a couple others (poise?)
Steve Sharik rightly points out above Amaker's unwillingness to make media appearances as one of his shortcomings as a Michigan coach. This contrasts sharply with Beilein, who not only appears on WTKA at least once a week, he also does the weekly Inside Michigan Basketball radio show and appears quite frequently on other media outlets as well.
Amaker never seemed comfortable at Michigan, and he gave the impression (perhaps an incorrect one) of someone not fully committed to the job.

I get your point, but there's a very large gap between what Barnes Arico is making and what the Notre Dame and OSU coaches are making (I couldn't quickly find what Merchant's total compensation is at MSU, but it has to be at least somewhat higher than Barnes Arico's). The article has Barnes Arico's salary at $480,000. Muffet McGraw made nearly $1 million at Notre Dame back in 2010; OSU hired a new WBB coach a year ago at a starting salary of $850,000. How do those numbers compare to what their hockey coaches are making?
Would Minnesota be a better example? Their head coach, Pam Borton, got off to a good start there, but the team has been thoroughly mediocre for the last several years—not making the NCAA tourney for five-straight years. Borton's compensation is about the same as Barnes Arico's. From what I could gather, the Minnesota hockey coach makes about $300,000, much less than Berenson.
Again, my point was that Barnes Arico's salary relative to her peers is not out of line. I can't say exactly where her compensation ranks in the conference, but it's definitely not at the top. The OSU, Nebraska, Iowa, and PSU coaches all make more than her. So where does Berenson's salary rank among Big Ten coaches? It should be at the top. Is it?
And to your point about the Michigan WBB program not being on par with ND, OSU, and MSU. She was hired just two years. Her initial contract had nothing to do with the historic success (or lack thereof) of the program. She was hired to elevate the program to the next level, with her salary based on her previous success elsewhere.

I don't think it's that unusual for the women's basketball coach at a school to be paid more than the school's hockey coach. I'm fairly certain the same holds true at both MSU, OSU, and Notre Dame as well. Whether they should be is another issue, obviously.
Also, Barnes Arico is not the highest-paid women's hoops coach in the Big Ten. I'd guess she's probably around 3rd, 4th, or 5th among current coaches, but note that she certainly also makes less than the Maryland and Rutgers coaches entering the conference next year. So, where does Berenson sit among Big Ten coaches in terms of salary? I think rather than comparing Barnes Arico's and Berenson's salaries in isolation, you need to consider where they stand in relation to what the top coaches in their respective sports are being paid.
And there's also the fact that Brandon needed to offer her a certain level of compensation to lure her away from St. John's.

If you're right, that's pretty surprising because Michigan wasn't even among the bubble teams for the NCAA tourney. Just within their "quadrant," Bowling Green and Rutgers were clearly ahead of U-M in terms of having a chance at an NCAA bid.

Here's a bit more on the only other meeting between Michigan and Wofford—a 83-49 Wolverine victory in Ann Arbor on December 2, 2006, during Tommy Amaker's final season as head coach. The mgoblue.com recap of the game highlights Dion Harris getting his first career double-double—14 points and 10 assists. Courtney Sims had a game-high 19 points, plus 7 rebounds, 3 blocks, and 1 assist. Early in his freshman year, DeShawn Sims tied his then career high with 9 points. Contributions from Brent Petway, Ron Coleman, Jerret Smith, Ekpe Udoh, and Lester Abram are also noted in the recap. Wofford finished that season with a 10-20 record.
Regarding possible second-round opponents, Michigan is 1-2 all-time versus Texas (W in 1994; Ls in 1990 and 1996) and 0-3 versus Arizona State (1965, 1967, 1994).

His return to the bullpen has been key to the team's better results of late.
One other note: Jackson Glines went 0-for-3, snapping his hitting streak at 11. He did make a key play in the field in the 8th, gunning down what would have been the tying run at the plate.

The USBWA All-District honors were actually released yesterday, followed today by the USBWA All-America teams (first and second). The odd thing is that Stauskas was named District V POY over Sean Kilpatrick (who was on the Distict V all-district team), but then today Kilpatrick was selected as a second-team All-American with Stauskas being left off.
I'm not sure how the voting is done for these, but perhaps Staukas did better with the writers in his district than he did with the national group of writers as a whole.
As I mentioned in the thread on Stauskas being named second-team All-American by Sporting News, the USBWA teams are one of the four used by the NCAA to determine consensus All-Americans. I thought Stauskas had a chance to be Michigan's first consensus second-team All-American since 1994 (Jalen Rose), but this certainly hurts those chances.

I'll take back one thing I said above: Michigan may not have faced Princeton's best pitcher yesterday. One of the pitchers the Wolverines will face today is Cameron Mungo, a sophomore righty considered by Baseball America to be the top Ivy League prospect for the 2015 draft. In their Ivy preview, they called Princeton "young but talented on the mound" and deemed Mungo "a projectable 6-foot-4, 185-pounder with feel for three quality pitches."

In addition to what Alton pointed out, keep in mind that the College World Series dates back only to 1947, so there are no official national champions for about 80 years of Michigan baseball history. In fact, I discovered in my research noted above that Michigan was considered the winner of the unofficial national title in 1914. Here's a—somewhat hyperbolic—snippet from page 275 of a 1915 Michigan yearbook found through Google Books:
Not sure if there are other years in which Michigan might have won an unofficial title.

Michigan has an incredibly rich history in baseball, and I'm not sure that the athletic department does enough to emphasize that. It could be one way to spark some more interest from fans.
While I'm at it, something I posted on Twitter earlier might be of interest to you and others: an interview that John U. Bacon did last year with Fred Wilpon subtitled How Branch Rickey and U-M Changed His Life Forever. It relates to Branch Rickey obviously, but it also ties in with the Michigan-Princeton series in another way because the teams are playing at the spring training facility of the New York Mets, owned by Wilpon.
For those unfamiliar with Sisler and especially his time at Michgian, see Michigan's George Sisler to enter College Baseball Hall of Fame and Sisler Elected to College Baseball Hall of Fame. The speech given by his grandson on his induction is also interesting, especially the part where he talks about Sisler's first meeting with Rickey and his subsequent "tryout" with the Michigan team.
Another interesting note is that after graduation, Rickey signed Sisler to a free-agent contract with the St. Louis Browns, where Sisler spent most of his MLB career.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Princeton wasn't expected to||
Princeton wasn't expected to be very good this season, but this was just one game, so I don't see how it could be called a disaster. We'll see how the rest of the series goes.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||To me, the heart of the team||
To me, the heart of the team are three sophomores: Jacob Cronenworth (2B and closer), Travis Maezes (SS), and Evan Hill (southpaw starting pitcher). The other main starting pitchers are also very good, especially 5th-year senior Ben Ballantine but also Trent Szkutnik and Logan McAnallen. Jackson Glines, a junior college transfer playing center field, is off to a great start this year. And the freshman class was highly touted, with the most heralded being Jackson Lamb, who had gotten off to a hot start but then suffered a back injury and has since missed several games and struggled when he has played.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||From what I could gather,||
From what I could gather, Princeton sent their best pitcher out to the mound in this first game of the series, and he carried a no-hitter into the 6th inning. It seems unlikely the rest of their staff will be capable of doing that, so I expect the Wolverines will do better tommorow and on Sunday.
One positive note is that Jackson Glines extended his hitting streak to eight games. Mgoblue.com recap.
Some historical side notes that I discovered in advance of this series: Michigan is still looking for its first victory over Princeton. The Tigers now lead the all-time series 6-0. Of course, the two teams hadn't played in 100 years. Two of Princeton's victories over Michigan—in 1911 and 1912—came when Branch Rickey was the Wolverine head coach. The most recent victory (prior to today's) occurred in 1914 after Rickey had left Michigan to become general manager of the St. Louis Browns. That year, future Hall of Famer George Sisler was Michigan's captain.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||He's playing||
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Nice piece||
In that list of accomplishments at the end is the 98 wins that Michigan has won during Morgan's playing career. That's close to the most ever for a Wolverine. Morgan was on the basketball radio show the other night, and Terry Mills said this came up during the reunion game for the 1989 national championship team. Mark Hughes (1985-89) holds the record currently at 104 games won. So there's a chance Morgan might equal or break this record.
Interestingly enough, Hughes, like Morgan, was a senior co-captain of the 1989 team.

They've run into some great performances by opposing pitchers, which partly is the reason for the lack of runs. And their top freshman, Jackson Lamb, who had gotten off to a hot start, has missed several games because of a back injury. He was back in the starting lineup tonight and got a key hit in the 7th that led to a run. Juco transfer Jackson Glines had a couple more hits to extend his hitting streak to seven games. He leads the team with a .345 average.
Keep in mind that Bakich is playing a ton of freshman, so I think the team will improve as the season goes on. There were three freshman in the lineup in tonight's game, plus another starting on the mound—Brett Adcock, who went 3 2/3 and didn't give up a run thanks to some help from the man who followed him, Jake Balicki, who picked up the win.
The full recap is here.

|5 weeks 6 days ago||They've lost several very||
They've lost several very close games (including three in extra innings), and there have been other games where the pitching has been decent but the bats were silent—sometimes because of dominating pitching performances by an opponent, other times not. Keep in mind that Bakich is playing a ton of freshmen, so this sort of start wasn't entirely unexpected.
Overall, the starting pitching has looked pretty solid. The bullpen failed to hold some leads, and that's led to some losses. I'm sure Bakich won't use this as an excuse, but injuries have played a factor. The team has lost junior Matt Ogden for the season because of an elbow injury. He was stellar out the bullpen last season, picking up eight wins in 21 appearances, with a 2.28 ERA in 55 1/3 innings. His injury leaves a gaping hole. Michigan's closer, Jacob Cronenworth, had not pitched until last weekend as he was still recovering from off-season labrum surgery, so that didn't help matters in the earlier games. Getting him back on the mound is huge, and he quickly picked up a win and a save in his first two relief efforts.
Another player who could solidify the bullpen is Jackson Lamb, but he "tweaked" his back in the first game of the Houston series a couple weeks ago and has played only sparingly since. He had been expected to be a two-way player but so far hasn't made an appearance on the mound. Bakich said this morning on WTKA (podcast) that Lamb is about 80 percent recovered and will be brought back slowly. Lamb got off to a hot start at the plate, so getting him back in the lineup could certainly help the offense—and perhaps he'll shore up the bullpen as well.

For an alternate viewpoint from all the Miles love in this thread, see this Rod Beard piece: Michigan's John Beilein, Nik Stauskas vie for conference's top honors. I'm guessing Beard might have some insight into who has the inside track on both awards, and he seemed pretty positive about Beilein's chances. He mentioned Bo Ryan as another candidate, before saying that Miles "will get some consideration."
|5 weeks 6 days ago||First team might be 10 players—not 5||
For the women's all–Big Ten teams announced earlier this week, the conference changed from naming first, second, and third teams of five players each to naming just a first and second team each consisting of ten players.

There are several national coach of the year awards given out, and while sometimes a coach sweeps them all, it's more common for two or more to split them. I could see Beilein winning at least one of them, perhaps the one awarded by the NABC given how respected he is in the coaching community.
