|45 min 25 sec ago||If they were earned||
with ineligible players it makes sense to me to correct the record.
|17 hours 58 min ago||I heard is dad saying||
to Hardaway (panel discussion during tourney) that some kids don't have the same hunger that they had. Robinson basically said that basketball was all he had and there were no comforts/alternatives to distract him.
I don't know how true that is or if it really mattered. Talent/upside gets you more than a partial year.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Send the coach||
an email. He may not have thought of this.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Beilein has done||
an amazing job this season. He has his team in almost every game starting a bunch of **. It's pathetic to see the potshots taken at him and his players.
|2 days 20 hours ago||Caris is a||
much better defender and the ability to take his man off the dribble. Stauskas was perfect in a Beilein college offense but he's limited at the pro level.
|2 days 20 hours ago||No, the offense||
flowed better with Robinson, Mitch, Morgan, Stauskas and Caris. Stauskas would have looked far worse in this year's offense than Caris did.
|3 days 18 hours ago||The Very Creepy||
factor also came in at 100%.
|4 days 17 hours ago||Win the games||
they should while beating a. ranked team and playing others well looks good.
|5 days 1 hour ago||I don't think||
it's the record as much as what appears to be chaos in the QB recruiting. I liked the Carr formula much better. If a kid can envision a formula where he is option 1A to to develop and take over why would he want to go to a situation where he has to keep his eye on transfers and the classes behind him? Yes, competition is good and shouldn't be eliminated but a coach having confidence in a recruits role is intoxicating.
|5 days 19 hours ago||You have no idea||
why Beilein is a great coach which leads to a garbage statement like he cost them the game.
|5 days 19 hours ago||This is just||
a no-win argument. Izzo would have gone after a freshman, particularly with Michigan's depth problem. And why do you want to risk starting a second half with 3 fouls?
You cannot win a game in the first half. Home teams are going to get their run. Beilein is playing with smoke and mirrors trying to make it to the closing minutes with his team having a shot.
|5 days 23 hours ago||I'd laugh but||
I think you're serious.
|5 days 23 hours ago||He will be||
much better with more scoring threats on the floor.
|6 days 16 min ago||^ This.||
|6 days 16 hours ago||I loved Rip.||
In the end Dumars screwed him when he signed him to an extension without mentioning that he was about to trade Billups. Rip was made to be the villain for his subsequent behavior but I think he was just a guy who wanted to play the right way and win. I'm not sure either he or Billups would have had the same careers without one another.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Did Hoke ever say||
that he did this?
|1 week 1 day ago||Premature evacuation||
from the video replay room.
|1 week 1 day ago||My first Michigan-||
MSU game in East Lansing. I met a friend who was going to school there. I was pretty low key but got all kinds of grief from fans. When I wouldn't respond one guy started calling me a pussy and fag. It got worse from there. He wanted a fight and even showed up outside of the stadium.
I never liked MSU but I learned to hate them that afternoon. And yeah, it was one fan but nobody around him told him to shut up or sit down. So they are and forever will be that guy working out his Michigan rejection letter (so I told myself) and uncontrollable inferiority complexes.
So it is, through highs and lows, I always know my diploma is more valuable than a score, a season or multiple seasons. And that's what the know too.
|1 week 2 days ago||Only if they||
last more than 4 hours.
|1 week 3 days ago||Too bad Urban's||
assistant didn't know about the recruiting process or wasn't bathed in the dripping integrity.
|1 week 4 days ago||Irvin has pretty||
much had to remake his entire game going from the 2nd or 3rd option to 1st while surrounded with basically freshmen learning the system. That's a tough jump when you don't have necessarily reliable scoring threats on the floor with you. I love the energy he came out with yesterday and that things are starting to gel for him.
|1 week 4 days ago||Max sets some||
mean screens. Better than Horford ever did.
|1 week 4 days ago||I am really||
disappointed I watched this.
|1 week 4 days ago||I agree||
with those saying Michigan just won't be able to sustain a high level of play over that many games. Spike was a different player today having a week to rest whatever injury. They just don't have the depth to endure unless Walton comes back.
|1 week 4 days ago||I was looking for||
the Cam (and Irvin) haters earlier...I'm sure not going to neg one that actually shows up though. Cam did show a flash of what I think will come as he regains his confidence.
|1 week 4 days ago||Spike had||
0 turnovers. Russell had 5.
|1 week 4 days ago||I'm with you||
though I'd Irvin to my list.
|1 week 4 days ago||Great win.||
Beilein truly is a master. Caris please come back.
|1 week 4 days ago||Beileined.||
Own man, building his own legacy.
|1 week 4 days ago||Michigan's offense||
has come against a good defensive team. That makes it that much more impressive. I expect OSU to make halftime adjustments. Hopefully Doyle is able to play.
