I can't stand Bayern and I have a buddy who we'll all be watching with who is a huge BVB fan.
That said, I'm pulling for Bayern.

German beer and cuisine for the CL final tomorrow, and (hopefully) a Wings win in the evening. CANT WAIT </bartscott>

Love the interview BTW Heiko. Awesome work.

"Apart from what anyone thinks of Dan Dakich as a commentator, he knows basketball."
Such an important distinction to make- I got really fed up with him doing Michigan games this season, but the fact remains that the guy know his stuff. Even though he suffers from color-analyst syndrome at times, his huge compliment of the coaching staff is really, really something, even if they didn't need any further validation.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I disagree.||
I don't think it's a dig, I think it's simply a handy measuring stick from a Michigan perspective.
People have seen Blake play and "Alex is a better player" just gives you a sense of where is skillset is at as a prospect.

Wouldn't mind seeing this every 2-3 days. Strut it out pal, strut it out.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed. Super flat and lost||
Agreed. Super flat and lost every battle in the 2nd but first playoff game for a bunch...Andersson, Brunner, Deykeyser, Smith. I'd expect game two to play out a bit more even, playoff hockey tends to swallow up newcomers. Ducks have a pretty experienced squad and it showed, especially on the PP unit.

I think you're right. Wings made offer of 6 or 7MM for one year, and I believe he signed for like 8-9MM with Pittsburgh.

You see that Dan? That's a stop-sign for trolling on national broadcasts.

|4 weeks 16 hours ago||I like him||
Doesn't have that "oh shit!" look on his face that a lot of big guys have with the ball on the floor. He can pop a 15-foot turn-around, but no otherreal-deal post moves that I can see- which is no big deal because he's 16-17 and plays against 6'4" types.
You can teach some post moves and footwork to a kid, but you can't teach 7'. I'm a believer.
|5 weeks 10 hours ago||Just to clarify...||
...you do mean as a slot WR playing with Megatron and not actually throwing to hi in lieu of Matthew Stafford, correct? If so, yeah, that'd be fun to watch.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Valid point, but in this case||
Valid point, but in this case i think a leader is fair. It's his 'hometown' school where his family can see him in every home game without a flight. He can visit his family on off days no problem. I don't think it's a stretch to say that the school he's been most comfortable with, and the coach he has the best coach-player relationship with to date is leading.

I do agree about the quotes bit, some of the things he has been saying indicate some degree of "over-the-moon"-ness.

This will be my mantra for the next three hours.

I'm not trying to be a jerk so apologies if that comes across, but I think most writers have Hand as a VT lead because VT actually is the team to beat in his recruitment. Hometown, Bud Foster and so on. Michigan is doing well to even be in the conversation but it's still VT in front.

Crean is just King of the Scumbags, isnt he?
Says a lot that his haircut isn't the worst thing about him.

It certainly helps to have some confidence in your pocket. That Hayes blitz pick-up on the Funchess grab wasn't exactly Vincent-esque but it was the difference between a knockdown and a downfield completion. More of that this year please.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I'm very interested to see||
I'm very interested to see what kind of player Funchess is in his second year. He didn't have much issue shedding defenders at the line last season- if he comes out as an effective blocker, he's the player i'm most excited to watch on any given play.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I was crushed for the team I||
I was crushed for the team I had so much fun watching last night- to the point that a text from a buddy back in Michigan that said "Great run! I aint even mad" went unasnwered until this morning.
He was right though. I'm going to look back at this season for the rest of my life simply because what Brian said is the absolute truth, these moments are so rare. Just to have been a witness to this team and some of the moments they provided this year was amazing in itself, going to the title game even more so.
I can't wait to talk about this game in 20 years.

But but but these .gifs take forever to load and they aren't videos and what good is a moving picture, can't we just look at black-and-white stills and....
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Fair enough, but I vaguely||
Fair enough, but I vaguely remember another elite athlete who nobody wanted to play QB going to a school just so he COULD play QB. I don't know enough of Jayru's situation, but maybe he has his heart set on playing QB at the next leve.
I still think you offer him though.
|14 weeks 15 hours ago||I'm not quite there in terms||
I'm not quite there in terms of hoping Berkley's a bust but I really want Braylon to be quiet and stop ruining my high school years.
Sticking up for family is nice but if his only FCS offer is Minnesota, maybe Michigan is not the entity at fault.
|14 weeks 16 hours ago||I really used to enjoy Dakich||
I really used to enjoy Dakich calling games, thought he was above-board as a color guy. But after watching the last couple games, specifically the "these refs are outstanding" bit, I am kind of 50-50 with him.
For my money, give me Kellogg or Raftery any day. Watching Dakich explain how MSU rebounds better because they put a man on EVERY SIDE OF THE RIM was grating.

Here's hoping that the good vibes carry over into the Breslin tonight.
