In the stands behind the basket surrounded by Kansas fans that thought the game was over a few minutes earlier. What a euphoric moment!
|6 weeks 4 days ago||A very talented roster||
Yet I won't be surprised if at some point in the season we hear how difficult it is to get all the new players on the same page. Or how they really miss the leadership from last year. Then they will get a lower seed and beat overseeded teams to make the sweet sixteen. What a tremendous coaching job by Izzo.

I believe youth is part of the issue. The main thing is when teams that shoot a lot of jump shots they tend not to drive the ball. When teams to into a cold streak you want drive the ball and get to the foul line or get it into the post man and let him operate. The goal is to get a closer shot or get fouled. A veteran team or player will usually attack the basket when the jumpshot stops falling.

Since Groce has been their coach I take extra joy in beating them. I know I should move on but, I refuse to completely get over losing to him in 2011-12.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||I know no one claimed it was||
I know no one claimed it was foolproof. I think today, in this game and the MSU game shows why coaches are hesitant to tell players to foul because sometimes they panic in those situations.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||I think guys leave because||
I think guys leave because they always believe the most positive view of their chances in the draft. A lot of players think the longer you stay the more holes scouts can find in your game.
|14 weeks 22 hours ago||Recruiting a stretch four or||
Recruiting a stretch four or big men in general has been weird because I've seen so many players 6'8 and up want/attempt to play like a guard offensively. Yet they don't want to play for Beilien because they don't feed the post enough. So many of these guys want to be considered versatile players. I think Beilien's offense encourages versatility. Maybe I'm confused hearing players/fans make these claims and I rarely see a consistent post game with good footwork in college basketball.

Gutty win. Great experience for the future.

I believe they said he has a 7'2 wing span.

The last few games they are finally starting to see the back door passes that have been available all season. Along with better movement.

Love the uniforms.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly, you have to score||
Exactly, you have to score more than 3 points in a half. There's no way 20 points was going to be enough to win.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Funny thing is a lot of||
Funny thing is a lot of people said he shouldn't have taken JMo. Most big men need time to develop unless they are going to be lottery picks. Even some of the lottery guys are just taken for potential. It's frustrating but the way it goes.

I wish Caris could get the same touch foul when he drives the ball.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||OSU||
Ohio St. lost to Va. Tech, needed 2OT to beat PSU, and a full 4 quarters to put away Indiana and Michigan. TCU and Baylor should be the only teams in the conversation. I think TCU is the better team but,if Baylor is selected I understand. OSU over TCU and Baylor would be ridiculous.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Don't they give the opponent||
Don't they give the opponent for the BIG/ACC Challenge after most of the schedule is locked in? Or at least we find out late off-season. If so, wouldn't it be hard to perfectly set up games to prepare for specific opponents?
|25 weeks 38 min ago||Schedule||
I agree, I understand complaints about the football schedule but not hoops. We get good to great home/road matchups and tournaments in the non-conference. Complaining about order of games seems a little nitpicky.

Finally, after a long negative week another chance to watch Michigan football always makes a great weekend.

You're right missing the jam is a possibility however I'd rather you attempt to jam and miss than allow constant free releases on 3rd and short/medium slants.
|37 weeks 2 hours ago||Brian hit on something that||
Brian hit on something that frustrates me to no end. When I see cornerbacks in press coverage and they don't attempt to jam the receiver. What's the point of press coverage if you don't touch the receiver? The jam will allow extra time for pressure to get there. I see it so much by multiple teams and levels of football, I'm beginning to wonder are they being coached not to jam all the time in press coverage for some reason?

A posbang is definitely in order. Pounded an overmatched opponent. Great start to the season!

Yes! Another piece to a great Michigan football weekend.

Maybe a posbang will help the ball of nervous energy I will be until kickoff.

The long wait is nearly over,next week is finally game week! Bang away!

After watching that I realized I miss Gardner and Funchess in 12 &19. And Gallon in 10 as well.

Only two more Fridays until kickoff. Bang away!
|41 weeks 4 hours ago||Exactly,they will call it||
Exactly,they will call it during the preseason and maybe the first two weeks of the regular season. Then it will be business as usual. Same goes for the crackdown on hands to the face. We will still see guys rush with their head going backwards and no flag thrown.

I agree. I wish it weren't a surprise but usually after a down year, winning the conference or playing at a high level the next year is considered a surprise. Now once this team has a breakthrough there won't be anymore non-national championship surprise seasons. I think expecting to play in the National Championship game every year like Alabama fans is ridiculous. However, our usual high expectations of playing for the BIG Ten Championship at the end of the year and a playoff contender will be warranted.

I am an eternal preseason optimist when it comes to my sports teams. So I'm always pumped. No matter how many people attempt to pee in my cereal. I ignore it because every season has surprise teams. Why not us?
