|18 hours 13 min ago||I don't think||
one can judge last season without mentioning the abysmal QB play or struggling OL. It wasn't all bad coaching, inexperience and a new offensive coordinator played a role. Combine a more seasoned QB, an OL that was improving and Harbaugh and 2015 will be MUCH better.
|6 days 18 hours ago||Nobody has to be the||
man in a Beilein offense. That's how he turns 3* into NBA picks.
|1 week 1 day ago||I don't think||
Carr did that (at least to this degree) and he turned out some pretty good QBs.
|1 week 3 days ago||We excel||
despite them apparently.
|1 week 3 days ago||Didn't Brandon||
begin this when they assigned staff to the booth? The Morris incident demonstrated the need, had Hoke been Harbaugh more people would have figured out the problem with the set up, not the coach.
|1 week 5 days ago||Wow, it's||
disheartening to read how many here think this is funny.
|1 week 6 days ago||Dubuque,||
Doo-boo-k as I like to call it isn't like Iowa I knew driving through Iowa on my way to Colorado. There are actual hills and bluffs with great views of the Mississippi River. The museum is nice and there used to be what they called the elevator fir a ride up a bluff. Galena is a better spot to eat, wander around, look at shops, etc.
|2 weeks 13 hours ago||Izzo manages||
to get the least from the most...so there is that.
|2 weeks 13 hours ago||I liked OKC||
before they drafted Mitch. I would love for them to win it all next season. One thing is for sure, unless the Clippers are in the finals, I'll be rooting from anyone from the West to defeat the Cavs.
|2 weeks 22 hours ago||What recruit||
recently said that JB is able to turn lightly recruited kids into NBA picks? I am starting to think that is a 5* recruiting problem, or at least something being used against Michigan.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||1989 Illinois||
semi-finals...Higgins with a final second put back for the win. I think the Wolverines had lost 2 two them in the regular season. That was a great Illinois team.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||How did he shred||
the Michigan Man idea? I know what he said but he hired a Michigan Man who is all about what it means.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||Kind of like||
he said FU to his coach during the playoffs?
|3 weeks 17 hours ago||Maybe it's been||
covered but I think Nike will make a difference to recruits, even if it's just the familiarity. Every little thing that helps a recruit feel at home or confirms an association he already has is a plus.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||He's declined||
slowly over the last 3 or so years. The key for him is if he can learn to pitch without an upper 90s fastball. Other pitchers have but I am not sure he's got it in him.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Great news.||
I really like how many of the softball players salute the university. It is an integral part of their motivation and pride.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||That's a pretty||
serious allegation to post naked of any specifics. Having said that, I wouldn't be surprised if Alexander made some missteps.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||That's good||
school weather, in a city with things to do. Summer is for the beach.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||It will be a bit||
hypocritical when he treats a player differently or fans bitch about another program's handling of a similar situation or we refer to Michigan's standards/expectations as being higher. Usually there is one right way and a million excuses for choosing a different path.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||It's indisputable||
that he develops talent. The question is if his system stymies the development of NBA skills. I don't see it, at least for guards/wings. A guy who is more athletic or skilled would flourish.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I have to agree.||
If he has a problem with alcohol, the least should have been a leave of absence and treatment center. As I've been told Moeller wouldn't agree to that course and lost his job as a result.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||It's tough for me||
to understand how an adult consumes that amount of alcohol and gets in a car. I don't think someone who doesn't regularly drink could have that much alcohol and reasonably function.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||So kids who make||
their decisions quickly should be punished? It seems a lot of people here were pissed that Battle ate up an offer just to buy himself some time but you are suggesting that it's okay for coaches to use kids that way? What about Weber and all of the ranting that caused...they hid a coaching change not a plan to pull an offer.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Sorry but||
that's the way a group of coaches that everybody here rushes to condemn play the game. If that's what Harbaugh and Michigan aspire to then fine...but let's also drop the BS about caring about the kids, the Michigan difference and all the rest.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||This was a very||
disappointing read. What else can be said. No amount of winning ever makes up for the loss of integrity and advertised values.
|5 weeks 14 hours ago||Trust? You||
operate on a string, all making the same read, individually only having to focus on your assignment.
That's my definition.
|5 weeks 20 hours ago||If this is a stupid||
move for the Knicks then it's twice as likely that they pull the trigger.
|5 weeks 23 hours ago||I'm okay||
with that. He's hurt the program to one degree or another by trying to manage his options. I get why a kid would do that but I also understand a kid that would do that doesn't fit.
|5 weeks 23 hours ago||So they don't||
know if the offer Michigan is still good?
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I don't understand||
Beilein's striking out on some of these guys unless he's seen as a mid-major type, system coach. Izzo seems like a complete jerk on the sidelines who rarely makes a guy better.
Having said that, I'll take Beilein, his eye for talent and his ability to add * to a player once he hits Ann Arbor.
