“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.”

I'm not sure how fair a shake he's going to get here.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||We're not a bug conference!||
Just because we have Bo Ryan in our conference doesn't make the rest of us bug people!
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Spike||
Ace---not as big as Mitch's development obviously, but even think about how Spike developed as a 2 minute guy to give Trey a break into someone who held the fort (and then some) while Trey was out against Louisville. We went from hoping he'd be a net zero on the court to being a plus guy.

All the talk may impact recruiting. Jalen is a genius. Keep bringing it up.

I've got a case or so left from my dad's last trip down here. It's last year's, but you're welcome to a sixer if you ever make it down to Austin. Honestly, I'm a bigger fan of Brewery Vivant's Farmhouse or Triomphe. And Short's Huma-lupa-licious. North Peak Diabolical and Dark Horse Crooked Tree are also really good. All we manage to get here in Texas is Founders. Both of their IPAs are solid.

Quinoa needs love too, man.

And we were looking for him, but couldn't spot Matt during halftime. Later got a text that he was in the ER, which was a bit worrisome. But it was an ACL injury.

Sorry, someone had to go there.

48-14 Michigan. Book it.

I got that Irons jersey right before graduation in May 97 since it was on sale. It was my first jersey and I joked with my roommate that I'd wear it for every game that year until we lost. And that if they went undefeated, I'd never wear it again and get it framed. We all know how that next season went. I broke it out for the hockey title game in 98,but it has been retired since. I had a very big dilemma about whether to wear it to the basketball game in Atlanta this year before deciding against it.

I'm assuming that is SOP, but probably bears doublechecking in this case.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Alamo Drafthouse is fantastic||
I live near multiple locations and it's always the first choice for movies at the theater. Great food & beer selections, plus great special events like the one mentioned above. My favorite was showing Jaws on the lake and having the viewers in inner tubes. Then they hired divers to mess with the viewers during the movie.

The beer stains on my underwear are from expensive craft beer.

mentioned that Bolivia was beautiful and that they got sick. A guy who had spent the past year traveling South & Central America said the only place he got sick was in Bolivia.

When my wife asked if we could raise our kids Jewish, my reply was "As long as we raise them Michigan fans. You have your religion, I have mine."

I lasted on the stock on my HTC DNA for about two weeks before getting Swiftkey 3 on it. I had it on my Thunderbolt and it's fantastic.

Astrid Tasks is pretty useful for my task list and it syncs to a web site if you need it.
Evernote is a good note and list keeping app that also syncs to the cloud
Doggcatcher for podcasts, including Michigan Insider
Slice is a great app for tracking and updating any online purchases
Conference Caller is great since I have lots of work conference calls and am often working remotely. It lets to store and automatically dial different conference code numbers. Very useful.

Untappd is Foursquare for beer drinkers
Out of Milk is a good grocery shopping list app. Can you tell I like lists?
Mint.com is a great app once you get the browser app getting all your finances in one view
CBS Sports is what I have to use since my phone doesn't support ESPN Scorecenter

Splash ID is a great app for keeping passwords and ids and other key numbers
GasBuddy shows nearby gas stations and gas prices along with a map
Kitchen timer is just a kitchen timer, but it comes in handy when cooking and/or grilling
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Agree||
There were a lot of sloppy turnovers and a lack of consistant outside shooting with the Fab Five, as great as they were. There were a lot of awesome moments and highlights, too. It was exhilerating and aggrevating at the same time. And I think people are forgetting that Pelinka, Voskuhl and Eric Riley (another guy who stuck in the league for a few years) were on that bench as well. There was some depth.
Where I think this current team has an advantage is that they seem better assembled to fit together. And they're better coached. I don't think Fish just rolled the ball out there as some suggest, but Beilein has a system and a philosphy that he's adapted very well to this team. And they're more consistant and reliable.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Let's not get ahead of ourselves just yet||
Both the '89 team (4 lottery picks and like 10 NBA players) and the Fab Five (3 lottery picks) were more talented than this team.
But college basketball was a lot more talented and veteran back then prior to so many early entries. So, in relative terms, this team seems better now, but let's see how they are midway through the B1G schedule. Either way, it's fun to at least be having this discussion.
|2 years 13 weeks ago||So what about all the RVs, commuters, tailgaters, etc.||
that show up at the Big House for every home game? How would these games cause any more logistics problems that the ND night game last year?
Or all the caravans that you see all across SEC country in the fall?
This is about two things. First, the schools in the south don't want to have to play up north after September. And second, the men in ugly jackets still want their cut. They've still got enough pull to make this happen.
Don't forget these are the same people who put together the NCAA hockey tourney.
|2 years 13 weeks ago||So, at what point does someone on ESPN point all this out?||
I mean, as an independent sports news organization, they'll have something to say about this idiocy, right? Right? Anyone? Anyone?
|2 years 17 weeks ago||andy19il on Trey Burke: Go back to school||
Probably more impact coming from Chad Ford, though.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||O'Daniel||
I think, at least, that the player and his HS coaches would appreciate the honesty and not have the kid wasting his time & money on trips when there wasn't going to be spot for him. I think the bigger impact will be how Blake is treated now that he's here.
But that's just my take on the limited information I get from the internet. Not sure if anything else went down.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||My son was 22 months for his first game||
It really helped that we had great seats (20 rows up on the 50) so he could see all of the action pretty close up. We left at halftime---any longer risked a meltdown.
He's 2 years, 3 months now and he just sang The Victors with me today for the first time.

That counts for a lot.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Of all the stuff we lay at Rich Rod's feet...||
...I'm not sure lack of offensive innovation is one of them. We did a pretty good job of that the last two years when we started to get the right players in the system.
But I'll give you the flexibility part of it based on the 2008 train wreck.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||UM alums in Texas||
As a UM grad living in Texas, I'm at least fired up to have a Michigan game I can drive to. I'd rather have us able to schedule home & home with some actual competition like UT or A&M or something, but I'll take what I can get in this environment.
It's also good for recruiting to get all those Texas recruits at the game.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||I was in the 3rd row in the end zone that day||
It was heartbreaking to watch Tripp go by on the cart with the brace on.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||What did he say about Chris Perry?||
Do we have any quotes about Mike Hart, Chris Perry, Ty Wheatley, Touchdown Tim and the guys who actually were good?
