"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

It's actually the color of a shadow. As in, we're accepting that we are in the shadow of something better.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||This ^^^^||
I have these thoughts all the time when the Brandon bashing is going on. People don't like him because of what he has done the last few years. I'll tell you what else has happened the last few years...our football team hasn't been very good. He's trying to keep the ship afloat while there is a sub-par product on the field. (Full disclosure, I do agree that tix are too expensive this year.) But, we all love the renovations to Crisler and sing praises about the improvements to the bball facilities...winning helps paint things in a prettier light (similar upgrades happened to football facilities too). I promise, DB will look much more appealing when the team is better and students don't give a damn about the cost of tickets because they will pay whatever it costs to see a good team.
|6 weeks 18 hours ago||Two points:||
1) Jamal Crawford is immensely removed from John Beilein.
2) The important thng about Beilein is that he not only puts people into the association, but he puts unknown/low-rated recruits in. How many people predicted, when they were recruited, that THJ, Burke, Stauskas and Levert would even be sniffed by the NBA? That's what makes JB great.

NCAA bylaw 12(c)(iii)(A.154): The transferred student athlete may play immediately at a school beyond the 100 mile radius as long as the school does not provide the student athlete cream cheese for his bagels for one year post-transfer.

You nailed it on the head. I couldn't imagine not going to every second of every game, as I did when I was a student way back when. But, that doesn't mean I was right and everyone else was wrong. Regardless of the reasoning/rationalization, people have a right to choose not to go to games. If I had to guess, a good chunk of the alleged "boycotters" are people who don't really enjoy the games in the first place and are just using the current fodder as an excuse not to renew/purchase. But, in the end, it's each person's choice to make.

No energy any more on offense. Just standing around. JB's gotta relight that fire.

Everytime I saw that guy, I couldn't help but think we dodged a bullet. I never saw him do anything good.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||The other thing to work on is||
The other thing to work on is slowing down the UT OREBs. Getting nit picky after a great half, but it seemed a good chunk of their points were second-chance. We may just be out-sized here, but would be nice to see that number lower in the 2nd half.

It was ugly, but good teams know how to win when things aren't going well. It's over...move on.

In it's current state, it is worth it to state that the state of this blog is fine. You state there is an implied obsession involving MSU, but let me just state, this does not appear to accurately characterize the state of mgoblog or the state of Michigan as a whole.

Officially had 7 tackles and one punt return...not much work, but he saw time on special teams, if I recall correctly.

Dymonte listed as RS FR...I like to see that, but it does seem a little suspect given the amount of PT he had last year.

You will also note that MSU's entry talks about how they've been so plagued by injuries this season, but they still can't justify higher than a 3 seed. It's just amazing how they are the only team to suffer from injuries this year! Good thing we and every other D1 team have been so lucky.

Skreech...is that you? Time to get over that inferiority complex. Enough time has passed.

Name anoher 7-footer who can shoot 3's.
Yep, KG and Nowitzki. That's pretty much it. Obviously a 15 year old kid who is 7 feet tall needs to bulk up, but this is quite a frame and skillset to build upon. The only hesitation with recruiting a kid like this is the investment it would require for one year on your team. Not so sure it's worth it.

...but there are tabs on the bottom. There is data here from 1990 to 2004! Goodbye productivity.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||mgopoints!!!!||
Don't underestimate the value of your mgopoints either. 2000 points, and you're a shoe-in. The only reason I got accepted was because it was more than a decade before mgoblog existed (and a year or two before the internet!).
|29 weeks 1 day ago||As scary as this is (and it||
As scary as this is (and it is!), this is the best argument to divert blame from the coaches. I am no apologist and feel like I'm pretty much on the same page as everyone else with respect to the staff's job status, but Hoke & Co. have zero control over the lack of experience on this depth chart. Seniors next year would have been recruited long before their tenure began. All that being said, we have a line filled with 4-5 star talent that, I would think, should be coachable into a serviceable (at least) line.

What is his deal? He was very hyped, and while I sat in my "expensive" seats at the BWW Bowl, the only thing that brought me any joy was marveling at the size of that dude.

I am driving from LA, and I got my tix on stubhub, so I don't know if it would count against the UM allotment. Buying tix through mgoblue.com doesn't let you see where the seats are...just the price level. So, for an extra $15, I got tix on stubhub and picked out my seats. Not saying it's a big game, but there are little things the school could do (like let you pick your seats!!!) to increase that ticket count.

Couldn't you do all this and just substitute Michigan for Texas? Presumably that would be more of a dream given that you posted it on this blog.
|34 weeks 3 days ago||This ^^^^^||
It's clear this is not a good team. Lower expectations...expect the worst and don't stress when it happens. When we do well, it's gravy. For those like me who bleed maize n blue, you can't just turn that off (sadly). Just lower expectations, get really excited when something good happens (which is admittedly rare these days) and hope for better future seasons.

Probably redundant, but just figured I'd share.
