Good old Myron Medcalf. I remember last year he expected Michigan to lose in the opener to South Dakota State, then throughout the tournament kept picking Michigan's opponents to win. From his record I'm not sure he even knows what sport basketball is, let alone has ever watched a game of it.

Sucks but isn't the end of the world; he's just one player in a team sport. Can hardly blame him for going to a team with so much recent success. Wish him luck in his career. Go Blue!

Some sort of performance art, maybe? Because it sure doesn't seem like good playcalling.

That was the first thing he did in college! And then he picked it up and ran it in for a touchdown. The Jags should try to get him to fumble MORE.

According to the movie 300, Spartans live around a bottomless pit; that's what Leonidas kicks that dude into while shouting "This is Sparta!"
The analogy was decent, but not completely accurate. In real life, the Spartans LIVE in the bottomless pit of East Lansing, not just around it.

I suppose if you're limiting it to a team we play every year, it'd have to be from our Division. I can't imagine we'll ever be playing The Game at night, so by default it would have to be Penn State, since they're the only other big opponent beyond State and the Buckeyes that we will play annually. It'd probably be more fun to change it up every once and a while depending on who we're playing rather than pick one opponent that always plays in the Big House after dark.

On an unrelated note, when you log in, does the password request screen say "You shall not pass!" or does it only say that when you input the wrong password?

That's a mighty lot of mathematical symbols and letters for people who "ain't come to play school." Pictures might be easier for Buckeye players to understand.

But its good to know we agree on the important things in life, like Michigan!

"Gardner's workout habits this spring and summer seek to emulate the elder Manning brother's offseason regime. "We've been throwing every chance we get. Everybody has different class schedules, so I'll come in two or three times a day to get all the receivers in. A lot of people finally understand that every year we've just been so close, we just missed our chance to get the Big Ten championship.""
It's awesome to hear how hard the team is working to get ready for the season before official practices begin. Every day I get more excited for this team to hit the field next month!

And hopefully trending towards the former, since most of our toughest opponents have to come to Ann Arbor this year!
Mattison will have the defense ready to play, and if the young players on the O-Line can learn quickly I think there is a lot to be optimistic about for this year.

I hate the Buckeyes as much as the next guy, but hearing about this kind of stuff happening, even to a rival, is never cool, for lots of reasons. Everyone is going to get all worked up over this when no one actually knows the facts - these guys will not get the benefit of the doubt (remember the Duke lacross team?). Second, people tend to forget the victims in these kinds of sports-related stories; where crimes have been committed, especially violence against women, people need to remember that someone has been hurt, not just that a "big name player" was the culprit. Finally, we're talking about college kids who may have just done something really stupid and potentially ruined their college or pro careers or even their lives.
Hard to see how anyone can take any joy in seeing this kind of stuff.

Eh, I used to care about this, but then I realized I don't care what they wear as long as they win games and stomp our rivals.
Would any of you really care if they wore clown outfits and wigs en route to beating Ohio State or winning a national championship? I wouldn't.

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.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||One would think Coach K would||
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.
|1 year 27 weeks 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...
