Thanks for the explanation. I knew the salary list couldn't be the whole story

He is still behind, but in the 2 minutes it took me to go from my computer to iphone, Kovacs earned 51 votes. Sweet.

Why does Borges earn more money than Hoke? (Per Michigan's liist of employee salaries) Serious question. Tried to google an answer but couldn't find anything.

After listening to Les' press conference in which he didn't say much and claims to know little of Michigan's intent, I think I am hearing between the lines: "Show Me The Money"

The New york times had an interesting article on a new gadget that measures a shooter's arc. Finding the right arc improves the chances of the ball going in. This combines a video element so the shooter can review the tape and make adjustments. The guys take a lot of 3s but no one would be complaining if they made more.

My thoughts exactly. He had finally achieved his Olympic dream and it was over before it began. Tragic. Condolences to his family and teammates.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||Refs have feelings too. I||
Refs have feelings too. I guess they didn't like hearing that they suck so they decided to give all the cheap fouls to Mich. +1 to Knight for calling them out on it. If we don't win its going to be because of those foul calls.

Badgers stomp MSU 69-47. Lucas out with ankle injury. W had plan and executed it.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||Wow changed channels to watch||
Wow changed channels to watch the Alabama Texas pregame (and because I couldn't watch the bad basketball.) I come back and they take the lead!! Hot shooting! Odd theory: the basketball hoop on the right (as seen by the TV viewer) is rigged.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||Doesn't look the same as vs OSU||
What's odd is that they seem so flat vs PSU;they seemed much more focused and sharp against Osu. Home vs away problems? A somewhat undersized outside shooting team isn't going have too many other options on offense. But 0-12 is pathetic. Clang, clang, clang went the bball...

Did TT just fall asleep in the red zone?? Or was that the parting of the sea so the backup QB could get some ink?
|5 years 9 weeks ago||No defense! Ever???||
No defense! Ever??? I am going to amend that to poor defense.
|5 years 9 weeks ago||Hustle||
Novak shows a lot of heart and hustle but he can't do it alone. Started out shooting so hot , maybe a little tired from all the running he's doing so shots aren't falling. Last douglass shot was nice possession. didn't freak with expiring time. They just need to keep their heads and they can pull this out.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||I think you may have misread||
I think you may have misread my comment. I realize we need to run the clock down but it needs to be done with a purpose: get a good look at the end: so guys have to start moving as the ball goes around the perimeter.
I also realize that Kansas is bigger Aldrich is pretty much taking up the whole box but that doesn't mean you should never drive to the basket. That makes it too easy on Kansas' defense.
I actually think Beilein is a great coach. We watch a lot of Big East games and I always liked to root for WV when they were the "underdogs" before they made a name for themselves. Guys like Pittsnogle and Gansey were fun to watch.

Wolverine8810 has a point with passing the ball around the perimeter just to take time off the clock which is good to slow the game down but then shots have still been contested at least in the first half. They need to run the shooter around a screen to get some more open shots. I also agree that they aren't driving the ball to the basket enough. Look at the discrepancy in free throws; at one point it is 6 attempts for UM and 20 for Kansas. Shooting slump very evident now in second half as they have gotten some good looks but shots aren't falling for them.

Ok the commentators have mentioned 3 times already that Mich was in bad shooting slump. Plus game sold out. I thoght everyone was home for the holidays??

Go Blue! A W is a W no matter how ugly it started out!

It was a little troubling to watch them sometimes watch the ball instead of going after it. Without better rebounding and FTs, you are not going to get those close wins (and the game did end up being winnable despite the poor effort in the first half). They showed streaks that they are capable of playing very good D, then they would "forget" and allow easy backdoor passes. I think I wish I had been watching the Illinois game. That must have been clampdown D to get that comeback.
