“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

Crystal ball prediction was 70+% State.
|4 days 22 hours ago||Yeah but||
the NFL wears pink to show their solidarity.
|1 week 10 hours ago||Donnal and||
Doyle are an inch taller than Morgan and 10 and 5 pounds lighter (respectively). That won't make up for experience but there is some size at least.
|1 week 2 days ago||If Michigan saw||
him as a center there was no reason not to red shirt him last season. I don't disagree on Morgan though. I tend to think Michigan will miss him more than any other departure. Who replaces his smarts and veteran leadership?
|1 week 3 days ago||Stauskas and||
Burke were both poor defenders. Walton, Irvin and Caris should be the best group of perimeter defenders Michigan has had in some time.

who is about to walk away from a soul sucking, well paying job, I found a lot of inspiration...thanks for the post.

Don't they have enough to keep them busy?
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan basketball||
is still in that phase in many ways. And yet they have enjoyed a lot more national attention than State and play in a conference that in recent years has more BB prestige than FB prestige.
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||Anything that's||
the antithesis of money ball is good by me.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||A few years ago||
people were saying the same thing about Beilein. He kept his head down and continued to build the program he envisioned. Understanding what Beilein did and seeing how Hoke is recruiting and making coaching adjustments, there is no way I'd say no way.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||After watching him||
defy those who said, in his last few games, that he'd be destroyed by his opponent's bigs it's hard to bet against him now. He makes up with smarts what he lacks in athleticism. It would be great to see him get at least a couple of years in the league.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I don't think||
there has been a Wolverine I've respected more than Jordan Morgan. I will never forget that after the humiliating way his junior season ended, when it seemed he'd lost all his minutes and could have moved on, he decided to come back and do whatever he could to help the team.
In many ways I think he will be the hardest Wolverine to replace.

yourself with the treatment of Italians, Jews and a host of others history in the United States.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Is there a coach||
ranked above him that's as creative? Beilein has been stereotyped incorrectly, from zone defense to Princeton offense. NO. Beilein is an incredibly creative coach when it comes to assessing his opponent and his own roster's strength. He's also confident enough to know that a 3* kid of character, smarts and passion for the game can be a better get than a higher ranked kid who doesn't grade out well on his full list of qualities.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||He's not Spurs||
material...too much media attention and self promotion.
|5 weeks 10 hours ago||I don't think Bacon||
has any idea who the average Michigan season ticket holder even is. Brandon may have helped people take a second and third look at renewals but he didn't start it.
You want to know what started this slide? The Rodriguez era. The bad record, the lack of identity with his style, the busted bowl streak, the NCAA investigation, etc. THAT'S WHEN PEOPLE LOST THEIR CONNECTION. Add higher prices and a bad economy with all of that and you get a spiral.
Since Bacon seems to have some empathy for Rodriquez he seems to miss this component in his rush to keep stabbing Brandon.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||The only thing I remember||
about my first game at Tiger Stadium (except being with my late father and grandfather) is my first sight of the field and believing it was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen. The exterior, the dull and dirty walk in, the fat old guys in too tight shirts...and then that beautiful field.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Come on.||
Anyone with a shred of honor and who could think a few steps ahead would know it was going to strain relationships and create distractions at the "office."

for a long time
|7 weeks 16 hours ago||Stauskas didn't||
show much beyond 3P shooting his freshmen year. Yeah, maybe a glimpse here and there, but nothing like what he showed up to do as a sophomore. Irvin played the same role this past season and I am confident he too will show up much different as a sophomore. As a bonus, he will be a much tougher defender.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I have||
read multiple reports that Michigan lost interest. I don't know if Webb's version is accurate though.
Michigan's staff has talked multiple times about team chemistry and the non-basketball factors they evaluate. This is why we don't see JB having sleepovers like Izzo did a few years ago when he was struggling with team chemistry.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Agreed. Some want||
everything to change except what they argue are the antiquated ideas of blue hairs and bygone eras. They want coaches fired, systems replaced, more money for staff, players to be paid, etc. all while pretending that the marching band and good friends are what college football is all about to the fans.
College football is not what it once was and while Brandon has made some things worse he cannot stop the march.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I agree.||
And I enjoyed him calling out the "cowards."
|7 weeks 2 days ago||No solid||
reason why? He didn't have an offer, did he?
|8 weeks 22 hours ago||Izzo is running||
on fumes. We will see if he can recharge over the next few seasons.
|9 weeks 10 hours ago||There have been||
several moments between Don and Peggy the last few weeks that made me see them coming together. As lonely as they both are their recent interactions evolve around where they see their own self value as opposed to escape.
|9 weeks 22 hours ago||I agree.||
|9 weeks 22 hours ago||Thank you||
to all that have served including their families. And that includes you Big Will, wherever you are today.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Nobody who has||
watched the playoffs this season can defend the overall quality of play.
