Basketball attendance isn't a new issue and being a good team helps but doesn't erase it. Coming off back to back final four elite eight seasons crisler didn't even sell out for a home game against a top 10 wisconsin half way through the season. If it takes a top 15 team to fill up the building the fanbase isn't all that great.
|17 hours 1 min ago||It may be true, but when you||
It may be true, but when you are posting things about a guy not being a take on the day of his decision a week after reporting that he would be a take it looks like sour grapes. Good luck to this kid in his career, hopefully for him Brian Kelly isn't around for most of it.
|20 hours 10 min ago||Lol no, don't be a salty||
Lol no, don't be a salty shit. The rules have always been the same. Don't lose 2 big ten games and this isn't an issue. No different today than it was in 1960.
|21 hours 20 min ago||Counting on Grant Newsome is||
Counting on Grant Newsome is risky and you are counting on the oline getting better by replacing the guys that left this year with people who couldn't beat them out or true freshman. And while the receivers flashed talent Darboh and Chesson will probably both be drafted. Lots of talent, no idea what will happen but I am very nervous about the oline.

Why is it an issue? Obviously infidelity isn't a great look but if its not students working for the team, and they are over 18 it is just two consenting adults having sex. Not really a lot of bearing on him as a football coach.
|1 day 15 hours ago||I'm honestly expecting a||
I'm honestly expecting a Herbert flip at this point and Slaton only gets back in the picture if he can get his test scores up. Its obviously doable but worrying about him before he takes an ov doesn't seem worth it so I thin we have room. The real question is from where on the current roster these extra 6-7 spots are coming from.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Sorry zero reasons not||
Sorry zero reasons not specifically designed to punish transfers specifically for the purpose of making transfers less appealing so schools have more power and leverage over kids to prevent them from doing what is best for them.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Yeah but the financial reason||
Yeah but the financial reason is complete bullshit and not a reason at all
|1 day 19 hours ago||The only chance we had was||
The only chance we had was him feeling like he had unfinished business because of how the year ended. Getting a degree would never be what kept him here.
|1 day 20 hours ago||I think its a reach that its||
I think its a reach that its a financial decision, if that were true injured guys wouldn't be allowed to travel either by rule. Its a rule designed to punish transfers. Defend it on those grounds and we can agree to disagree about whether its right for the NCAA to control the movement of kids attempting to do what is best for them and their future, but don't try to frame this as the NCAA looking out for the taxpayers of the state of michigan, they don't give a fuck about that and neither does EMU.
|1 day 21 hours ago||If I'm a taxpayer and or||
If I'm a taxpayer and or tuition paying student I don't want the football team going to a bowl if that is how you look at it. You want to help 72 year old Eleanor Smith deal with schools having to gaurantee ticket sales and work your way down from there. Especially since this rule isn't to protect Eleanor Smith, its to make transfers less appealing by making the period of transfer as miserable as possible to give power to the schools over the players.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Except nobody would be||
Except nobody would be forcing EMU to bring him. It should be the schools choice, not the NCAA. If he can't play and the school decides him traveling isnt worth the cost they can say no, if they think having him there benefits the team he can travel with them as a member of the team. Teams also often bring injured players who can't play, Peppers was at the bowl game last year. It should be a school decision.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Well he has been at EMU for||
It also isn't a rule that applies to freshman so it seemingly exists to punish transfers. There is also zero reason for it.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Sucks for LSU since Ed O's||
Sucks for LSU since Ed O's big plan was to bring over Kiffin to run the offense.
|2 days 9 hours ago||He didn't have a bad year but||
He didn't have a bad year but I bet if you had told people he'd have less of an impact and get less snaps than chase winovich when he was supposedly pushing to start in the off season nobody would have thought it was possible. And if I like burgers want to make a comparison to another freshman nick bosa had a statiscally better year but I'm not going to pretend I watched a lot of osu games.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Because we lost to Iowa,||
Because we lost to Iowa, pretty simple. Honestly believe if we had 1 2 ot loss at osu and they had won the big ten we would have been in over Washington.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Texas sucks at basketball and||
Texas sucks at basketball and we should feel bad for being in a close game with them. Better?
|3 days 10 hours ago||Not sure Texas isn't going to||
Not sure Texas isn't going to count as a good win this year but it would still be good to win.
And Michigan's basketball fans are pathetic, have been for a while now, honestly think the stadium averaged about 60% full the year we went to the final four.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Stupid of western michigan,||
Stupid of western michigan, not one of those situations where it will pay for itself.
|4 days 17 hours ago||That is probably because the||
That is probably because the guys on OSU's board are comitted to them while the guys on Michigan's board are still targets.
|5 days 18 hours ago||I don't know, more||
I don't know, more information was provided in the time between when they said that and todays ranking including Washington beating a common opponent more handily than we did. That was always the thing about the commitee's comments, they were made without complete profiles
|5 days 19 hours ago||I'd rather OSU be in, fuck||
I'd rather OSU be in, fuck penn state and their joe pa loving fans
|5 days 19 hours ago||Not sure I agree with point 1||
Not sure I agree with point 1 being a lesson. OSU is in over PSU because they beat Oklahoma on the road, if they had played Toledo instead don't think they are in.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Welp got jumped by psu so now||
Welp got jumped by psu so now I'm glad Clemson won so those fucks don't get to play in the playoffs.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Iowa?||
|5 days 20 hours ago||I'm suprised that nobody||
I'm suprised that nobody thinks winning a conference means anything.
|5 days 20 hours ago||What was unbalanced? We had||
What was unbalanced? We had common opponents of Maryland, Rutgers, MSU, Inidana, OSU, Iowa, Wisconsin this year. There isn't a single big ten team we played they didn't and they won the division we were in. Maybe its stupid a loss against Iowa coutns more than a loss against Pitt because of divisional affiliation but if that is the case there isn't a need for a conference championship and teams should just play whoever.
|5 days 22 hours ago||It will still be interesting||
It will still be interesting to see if psu jumps Michigan to 5th. There is a small part of me that hopes it happens both so we just know that conference champion matters more than head to head and also so I know we never had a shot at the playoff and vt losing didn't make a difference.
|6 days 7 hours ago||The 4th down stop was the||
The 4th down stop was the least egregious call of the game. We lost, beat Iowa and none of this is an issue but we played like ass and this is the result.
|6 days 7 hours ago||This year isn't an argument||
This year isn't an argument for a top 8, there are barely 4 teams who deserve it. It was a war of attrition not a bunch of teams going out and proving themselves.
