Ohio...maybe we should show them more respect though. I think I'll go with The Ohio
|15 hours 27 min ago||That's a shitty||
thing to say about the BB program. Beilein has built something out of the rubble of years of indifference. Show some respect.
|16 hours 38 min ago||Manning over Brady?||
That's a problem.

MrSmith. Chess is a game if strategy and like football, it's all about reps. (At least it did for me when I started playing as a kid.)
|3 days 4 hours ago||I'm not even a||
Harbaugh or bust person and I don't believe this. if Harbaugh wants to explore NFL offers that can't be a new idea. Why would he give Michigan any other impression from day one?
|6 days 18 hours ago||Why fire him if they know||
he wants to leave?
|1 week 1 day ago||What are all these||
calls for big men? When has that been JB's mode in Ann Arbor? What's missing is experience. I don't know how much that inexperience is disrupting the system Walton and Caris are trying to run but they, along with Irvin, are just not playing at expected level.
|1 week 1 day ago||I still want to know||
who was responsible for hiring Nuss. He and Gardner cost Michigan several wins and Hoke his job. I get that might be considered a good thing in the long run but I don't know why he should be kept. He hasn't shown much in the way of creativity or recruiting.
|1 week 1 day ago||I remember being||
accepted. It was Michigan or bust for me, no other applications and I told nobody. My mom cried and I'm still not sure if it was because her oldest was going away or she was shocked that I had applied and was accepted.
Now I have a 16 year old niece with the same Michigan or bust attitude. May she have her day of joy.
|1 week 1 day ago||He signed a contract while under contract?||
|1 week 2 days ago||Miles does not||
meet Hackett's stated standards. I don't think he's the backup.
|1 week 3 days ago||TAKE THIS DOWN.||
PLEASE JUST TAKE THIS DOWN.
|1 week 4 days ago||Hackett's press||
conference remarks on Hoke were for the Harbaughs and the players. He said Hoke had a mastery over some aspects of the job and added that he wished he had been there earlier to help on other aspects. Besides being true it helps everyone who
|1 week 4 days ago||I'd believe you.||
|1 week 5 days ago||Is it possible Harbaugh||
met with Oakland to see if a deal was possible and then determined it wasn't? That explains those reports, Miles comments and the heating up tonight.
|1 week 5 days ago||Do we even know that he||
was officially a candidate? I don't know what Miles did in Ann Arbor and beyond but there remains a sphere of influence that would consider Hackett a hypocrite (based on doing things the right way) if he hired him. I've got nothing more than second hand recollections from those closer to the program. It isn't about Carr as some speculate but Bo and his guy Moeller. Hackett is of the age to know and have an opinion.
|2 weeks 4 hours ago||It isn't Beilein's recruiting||
recruiting failures, it's his success. With the exception of Mitch there wasn't anybody projected to be a two and done. A college team needs some program guys, some 3* types that stay 4 years. They provide the framework within to teach and develop the incoming freshmen.
Michigan isn't going to be Kentucky where they just keep reloading. JB hasn't had success because he uncovers the inner athlete but because he's able to combine basketball IQ, system and the skills they have. Right now the team seems overwhelmed.
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||I think this||
is wrong. Beilein needed some program guys...the type that develop and stay 4 years. You sprinkle in the stars. He was victimized by success in losing so many sophomores. The recent under the radar guys will be valuable in the long run.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||It will and it should...||
I don't believe it's true.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||And people wonder||
why players criticize or question fans. Hoke never deserved the crap spewed here. And it continues.
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||Let's be serious.||
Harbaugh has apparently seen his style wear thin at SF. Does that mean he's also come to accept that his style is better suited for college? Or does it mean he doubles down to show the world they are wrong? Is he objective enough to know the role of a NFL front office in success, is he accomplished enough to get more than average authority with personnel decisions?
Finally, who and what does Harbaugh serve? His family? An ego that says a NFL championship is the only thing to quench its thirst? Or is it an ego that can be satisfied with college success?
Jim Harbaugh is an emotional man.
|3 weeks 21 hours ago||My god||
are some of you pessimists. This loss will mean nothing if Michigan progresses through the season. It will be nothing more than an early season stumble by a young team against a team hitting NBA 3s even when Michigan was somewhat effective defensively. On the flip side Beilein will turn this pain to dividends.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Not all kids||
have the same set of reasons for committing to any school. I do think all kids would want to know who their coach is going to be...it's beyond reasonable.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||The letter||
refers to RR and Hoke's first year and the difference a full buy in can mean. RR pissed off a lot of people with a number of decisions, he blew up almost the entire coaching staff and he wasn't invested in any of the themes that players and fans considered the identity of the program. It is just human nature that there would be reservations on player's parts. Having the support of fans and alum would of course provide a sense of comfort and confidence. Having said that, a leader (Martin and RR) should know that too.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||What a completely||
ill informed smear. Carr is well respected by players and his one time peers. The only faction on his ass are Michigan fans.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||This would||
make me really happy.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I think that's||
wrong. I was at an event after Bo died and overheard Goss ask "now that the old man is gone can we hire Miles."
|3 weeks 3 days ago||You've got Hackett||
all wrong if you think he's going to go begging like a spurned woman. If he wants Harbaugh he will make a deal from a position of strength.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||From what I||
know and hear about Hackett he means what he says about no shenanigans. He wants someone whose reputation is squeaky clean. The second thing is he wants someone who can lead and won't be swallowed by the media, fans or organizational politics. Throwing around names without these considerations is perilous. The one qualifier is if he plans to stay as AD and feels he can mentor a coach (as he mentioned about Hoke).
|3 weeks 4 days ago||No, Horford||
revealed himself in his last game in a Michigan uniform. And his parting shots further revealed him. That he couldn't flourish/excel in Beilein's system was about Horford not the system.
