I really hope Jordan sees/hears at least some of the respect and love he's getting from Michigan fans. I can't be in Ann Arbor tomorrow. For those who can be...make him feel it for and from all of us.
|1 day 8 hours ago||Great writing. I hope he||
gets the same big time love tomorrow night. A Jor-dan Mor-gan, Jor-dan Mor-gan chant could be a beautiful thing. I am convinced upon repeated chants one is fully delivered from the dark days.
|2 days 3 hours ago||I don't know...||
a 14 game win streak seems less doable than a 6 game streak. Yeah, Louisville did that and more last season but I like Michigan's chances at a shorter streak better.
|2 days 4 hours ago||The conference||
tournament seems like a trap. It looks like it would add to a win streak that would look unsustainable through the dance. Bowing out early and getting ready for another win streak sounds like a better bet.

quote. Reread the book again last summer...it remains relevant for these timeless insights.
|3 days 1 hour ago||You guess||
the Wolverines are more buttoned up? It's not even close. For a few years the rumor was that Beilein couldn't get along with his stars (Morris and Harris). JB is a tough coach who demands things be done his way. I don't think if Jalen and the gang were looking for a place to "shock the world" they would have chosen Ann Arbor.
|3 days 13 hours ago||It's hard to||
talk about the Stauskas effect without first talking about the Beilein effect. His ability to find the guys with a brain and passion for the game and then grow them is phenomenal. Add to that his ability to modify his offense to fit the talent he has. After 4-5 years of being a PG-centric offense the 2013-14 team shifted almost seamlessly.
As for Stauskas, I have been most impressed by his recent play. He has gone from "pretty boy" offense to toughness...willing to fight for his spot and shot and then able to make contested shots.
|4 days 29 min ago||Injuries. Got it.||
I wonder if they noticed Mitch is still out and Morgan sat almost the entire game. Still Michigan destroyed Illinois on their floor.
Magnets? Got it. Apparently not only do they suck balks through the nets but they also have sucked the life out of Izzo and his program.
|4 days 55 min ago||I never bash||
Kelly. The guy learned to play almost every position in order to get a shot in the big leagues. He's more than competent in 5 of them. You have to be a pretty damn good athlete to do that. He did what it took to live his dream. Gotta respect that.
|5 days 4 hours ago||I don't think||
he'll be "creating" his own shot in the NBA. He doesn't have the handle, strength or quicks. To me the question is can he improve or is he destined to be a 3P shooter who helps spread the floor.
And while it's popular to say they don't play defense in the NBA there is sort of a range that goes from All Star game awful to championship better. Stauskas has to improve.
|5 days 8 hours ago||They will||
miss Morgan's experience and basketball IQ. He's a captain and team leader.
|1 week 48 min ago||Sorry to repeat the||
myself (from other Morgan comments) but the fact he came back after losing his confidence and minutes says so much about him. The fact that he did so saying he wanted to contribute any way he could says even more. The fact he was voted captain says it's not just some fans who notice what kind of man he is.
|1 week 1 hour ago||Does it get any||
better (in sports) than having a coach and team you love win?
They just said that the '89 team members who were there joined the current team in singing the Victors after the game. Damn cool. Add THJ and Burke's parents at the State game...seems like family to me Jalen.
|1 week 23 hours ago||You have to omit||
significant details in order to conclude that the cases are alike. One of the two has a witness, a victim who wanted charges to be filed and who filed a federal complaint. One of the two had a nationally known attorney become involved. One of the two resulted in the formation of a group that protested the handling.
|1 week 1 day ago||The decision||
not to prosecute was controversial. Spartan fans best hope their school didn't influence that decision.
|1 week 1 day ago||You are exactly right.||
The AA case is not like the EL case. The latter had a witness, as you point out, and a victim/supporters who wanted charges brought.
I heard a few years ago that this was going to blow up and that Izzo was implicated. My understanding was either the victim or another group was pursuing legal action. I heard this from someone I was told was a fairly well connected EL booster. When nothing happened I figured he wasn't as connected as I was led to believe.
|1 week 2 days ago||He was looking to||
push it to see if the defense was set. When he saw nothing there he called timeout.
|1 week 2 days ago||Perfect.||
|1 week 3 days ago||That pass by||
Caris was perfect. JB said he doesn't always get that right...glad he did tonight.
|1 week 3 days ago||And he can tell everybody,||
he's the man, he's the man. May he believe that going forward.
|1 week 3 days ago||True. I think||
JB plans ahead though :)
|1 week 3 days ago||I am adding Morgan||
to that list. He decided to come back even in what looked like a very small role. I love his choice to return and give 100% in whatever role awaited him.
|1 week 3 days ago||I'll take JB and several||
days of prep time against anybody and worry about the details later.
|1 week 6 days ago||Finally he||
said enough. He'd been so passive, so willing to allow an opponent to take him out of the game.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I agree on||
Stauskas. Beilein has been pushing him to be more aggressive but if he can't step up, there are other scorers on the floor. Maybe making defenses focus elsewhere is the best strategy. Let Stauskas get his shots off that action.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||He's also a good||
passer quite capable of finding the open man.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I don't think||
Caris is going anywhere but he's had more than 1 good game. Even if not as good at one thing as either Stauskas (3P) or Robinson (dunks) he does more things well than either of them.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Somehow I see a future||
where is mother is in the stands covered in State gear from head to toe while some announcer recounts this recruiting story. I also see a dominating Michigan defense which leaves the television audience wondering what kind of career Malik might have had at Michigan.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||They miss||
Burke far more. The offense has no center of gravity.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Really surprising||
to see the offense continue to struggle.
