Beilein has never struck me as anything but a class act. Obviously I'm seeing him through maize-colored glasses as "our coach," but I don't think I've ever seen him do anything that struck me as unsportsmanlike. At most, I've see him get frustrated with his own players or maybe a call by the officials, but never jawing with other teams' players, pouting about a loss or rubbing a victory in an opposing coach's face. Maybe I've missed something over the years, but I'm proud that Michigan has a coach who obviously cares about his team and the University but doesn't let emotions get the best of him.
As for Crean, I always thought he had done a great job at Indiana rebuilding their program without ever really doing anything which reflected negatively on him or Indiana. After seeing what he did after yesterday's game, my opinion of him dropped through the floor, and it sounds like from what some of you guys are saying it isn't his first time acting like this. Nothing wrong with celebrating a big victory or your team's success, but you don't need to act like a spoiled brat while doing it. The players I can understand - they're college kids, and no one is expecting them to be above getting caught up in emotion, but as a coach I think you ought to hold yourself to a higher standard. Crean obviously doesn't, which is too bad.

One would think Coach K would know the easiest way to avoid being caught up when opposing team's fans rush the court: don't lose! Of course, its much more satisfying for the rest of us when he doesn't follow that advice.
That being said, if you're dumb enough to get in an opposing team's player or coach's face, you deserve to get smacked.

Sure, that's the moral of the story, but Wojo didn't tell the story right. He says that in order to succeed that the gazelle has to be faster than "the fastest gazelle" instead of the fastest lion, and that the lion has to be faster than than "the fastest lion" instead of the slowest gazelle, it doesn't make much sense.
I understood what he was saying as it applies to the team; we've all heard that story before. I was just making light of the fact that he mixed up the story, that's all. Doesn't change the fact that it was a pretty good article.
|13 weeks 6 hours ago||Good article, but...||
"Back on the screen, there was a brief tale of the gazelle and the lion. Beilein read it aloud, that the gazelle must run faster than the fastest gazelle, or it will be killed. And the lion must run faster than the fastest lion, or it will starve."
Good article, and it really shows the passion Beilein has for his program, but if that's the analogy the players are relying on, it might explain why they've looked so confused on the floor recently...
|16 weeks 1 day ago||"When Everyone Operates In-Sync."||
At least according to this Scout thread.
"So, here is answer to all the questions about what is "We On." It is the team slogan for the season created by the staff and players. It stands for 'When Everyone Operates In-Sync.' In addition, we created a U-M fuse box in the locker room in which each player has a key word they focus on during the season. Each player flips their switch "on" before every practice and every game. So, there you have it. Go Blue! We On!"
No idea if that's accurate or not, of course. I DO know that the MDen appears to be "sold out" of all "WE ON" shirts, sadly...

Sweet - thanks Six Zero! Great work as always. Going on my desktop right now to annoy all my OSU fan coworkers.
Somebody ought to put together a wallpaper of Denard as Moses (Or Moses in a #16 jersey) parting the Red Sea. Seems appropriate.

I can't see a volcano from my office window (although I can see the refinery from co-workers' windows). Frankly, a volcano in Toledo would be pretty awesome...a major improvement to say the least.

How is David Cone not a lock for recognition?
But seriously, the obvious ones are Harmon and Woodson. I don't think Denard, as great as he is, has had an accomplished enough of a career to warrant recognition (absent winning the Heisman this year). Probably no need to consider anyone who has had their number retired, either, since that's a greater achievement than having a patch sewn onto a jersey in your honor.

I miss David Cone.

If for no other reason than the sweet finger guns gesture he does when he lines up next to the QB.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Multiple QBs||
Wait, we potentially have MULTIPLE quarterbacks who could win games? I'd be happy just to find ONE QB who can win games for us. Heck, I'll be happy if Tate comes out and doesn't fumble every other snap, just so I don't have flashbacks to last year.
Now Stevie Brown, on the other hand...I fully expect him to win games for us all by himself...
|3 years 46 weeks ago||Agree||
I agree. Do you really think Pete Carrol frets over whether he's getting more good people from California than UCLA? Probably not, since USC is a program that seeks the best players nationally. If they're from Michigan, all the better. But if Michigan is bringing in the best recruits nationally and Michigan State cleans up on second-tier talent in-state, who ends up winning where it counts? It seems sort of dumb to make assumptions on how good a class is based on some invisible, arbitrary lines drawn on a map to determine how good a school's football recruiting is.

I'm glad someone managed to place an order. I've tried 4 times to place an order yet when I enter my credit card info and tell it to confirm the order I get the same error message I did most of the time I clicked something last night. Although the site claims no order was placed, it doesn't give me much confidence to trust it.
I think I'll stick with the M Den for the time being. This new site has me pissed off for the moment. I'll wait till they work out the bugs.

Punters can be a terrific weapon. Especially when they're playing on the other team and kick to Michigan, whereupon we invariably fumble. Its like a free 50 yards!
We need to coat Odom's gloves with glue...

Maybe it will be a double-header like they did a couple times back in the early days.
Appalachian State AND Toledo, same day!
|4 years 5 weeks ago||Yes.||
Actually, it'll be a Youngstown State player.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||David Cone||
I'm still pulling for David Cone to lead the team this year.
I mean, he's been around for forever, taking all this time to get ready to lead Michigan to their first National Championship in a decade.
This is going to be his breakout year.
Unless he sticks around till next year. Or the year after that.
|4 years 9 weeks ago||We did it!||
Or at least our basketball team did.
But I have no doubt the Wolverine faithful (especially this blog's readers and contributors) had some small part.
|4 years 11 weeks ago||This year's starter!||
He is definitely my pick to be Michigan's starter this year.
Please, please, please, no Nick Sheridan.
