Get well soon, Ace. Love your writing and your humor.

Andrew Dakich is quickly becoming my favorite player on this team. His dances are hysterical.
|45 weeks 1 day ago||That was awesome!||
Amazing job of synching the meaning of the words with the meaning of the replays. I really enjoyed the look back. Reminds me that this has been quite a journey for more than just the last two seasons.
Here is to many more journeys yet to come for Michigan basketball. Hail !
|48 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe not||
Last year, Kansas v. Michigan was early game and Florida v. Dunk City was second game. I would think our game was more of the marquee matchup but we were first anyways.

I snuck in with 2 tickets on Ticketmaster before the UK game went final. I hope we are the second game so I can move up to a better seat. I can't imagine the bitter fans of the losing team will want to stick around for our game when they can just drive home or go drown their sorrows elsewhere. Also, the secondary market for Sunday will be fantastic if we win Friday. Just catch the losing fans on their way out and ask nicely to buy their Sunday tickets. That worked well last year when I bought floor seats for the Florida game from Kansas fans.

His failure is delicious. Go Blue!

|1 year 8 weeks ago||The day AFTER signing day||
Can't do anything to disturb the apple cart of incoming recruits.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Future is bright?||
We just lost 5 of 6 games. We just regressed again year over year. Our defensive genius got torched yet again. And, you think the future is bright?
Why do you think next year will be any better? Because our team is one year older? Gonna take more than that to do the trick.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Are you serious?||
I can't believe you are actually trying to defend Mattison this morning. Lockett dropped a sure fire TD in the second half. The adjustment would have been to double cover him after he burned us the first few times, not leave him alone on a deep ball yet again. KSU's walk-on kicker missed a makeable FG in the second half. What adjustment did Mattison make to force that miss? And, they fumbled inside Michigan's 40 yard line in the second half after gashing our defense on yet another run play up the middle. Not to mention that Snyder had clearly called off the dogs with a large lead and a classier attitude than most college coaches these days. Heck, they could have easily tacked on more points at the end of the half if they were so inclined.
Michigan forced exactly one punt the entire game. Don't talk to me about defensive adjustments.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||10-3 or better?||
This team just finished losing 6 of 7 games and you think they have a prayer to go 10-3 next year with an even tougher schedule? Hoping for wins is not a plan. This team has no plan. But, let's give them one more year to be sure. Or, is that not enough since we won't have a roster of 2 deep seniors next year? Seriously, this team has not even made baby steps forward this year. Total regression and lack of player development coupled with lack of preparation leads to no chance for 10-3 next year.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Good kid||
He really did the 21 jersey proud. I hope my favorite NFL team drafts him so I can keep rooting for this kid.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Hoke is not the answer||
I don't see Coach Hoke winning anything at Michigan. He will coach 1 more pitiful year and then be let go quietly after yet another loss to OSU. I wish there was even a glimmer of hope, but this bowl game proved that this staff is completely inept at developing players. A whole month to prepare for one team, and they play out of position with poor technique, again. The whole staff deserves to be fired.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Congrats Shane||
I'm really glad he led that last TD drive to end the game. Something for Shane to build on in the tuture.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Suck it 2013||
I hate 2013. Worst work year of my career. Avalanche of sports dong punches.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Gardner||
I love Gardner's confidence in the team and in Shane. Great to see him pulling for Shane like this.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||We can't finish||
To win "down the stretch" you have to be able to finish games. This team has no identity on offense, no rebounding advantage, and no killer instinct. It has no low post game at all. When we absolutely need a bucket, we have no "go to" player or play. Those type of teams rarely are tough to beat down the stretch. We have players who could do that, but none that have showed me they will be that guy.
So, I respectfully disagree with your conclusion. I Hope I'm wrong.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Really?||
What have you seen that leads you to believe that?
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Young team meme||
I know this team is young, but didn't they gain experience in last year's tourney run that no other team but Louisville can claim? We should be more battle tested than we have shown so far. Also, with the best players leaving for NBA after 1 or 2 years, almost all of the best teams in NCAA will be young. Arizona is just as young, and they were the ones on the road playing a 10am start time (for them).
Let's stop making the "this team is young" excuse. We need to win our share of these games. Let's see if we learned anything from yet another tough loss.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||I'm numb to this now||
I have no expectation of a win anymore. 2013 can't end soon enough.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Agree 100%||
That playoff run, and his performance in it, was one for the ages. I too tell my kids about the greatness of Stevie Y. He should have won the Conn Smythe that year (nothing against Lidstrom).
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Stevie Y is the greatest||
I wear #19 on my over the hill beer league hockey team because of Stevie Y. And, I know I'm not alone. It is so cool pulling on that 19 jersey and emulating the greatest captain in NHL history (IMHO).
And, both my girls wear #19 on their respective sports teams because of Stevie Y too. I teach them about his leadership and work ethic all the time. They were too young to watch him play live, but they know his greatness through my stories.
Welcome back Steve, even if its just for one game. Detroit loves you.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||What OC's could we get if we fire Borges?||
I am so on board with firing Borges. He calls plays like he is coaching a pee wee team and he only has four plays they have learned so far. No creativity. No sense of awareness to down or distance. No coaching of the QB. We need a new OC and QB coach.
My question is who is available? Any bright young assistants out there that we can lure away? Scot Loeffler is OC at VTech. Bring him back? He could do double duty.

Mix that Buffalo Trace with some lime juice and ginger beer for a delightfully refreshing Kentucky Mule. I add a little aperol or apple cider to it too.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||Withdrawal||
I already miss this team so much. How many days until next BBall season?
|1 year 46 weeks ago||What a miserable morning||
And now the morning after. I hardly slept. Woke up thinking about the game and how close we were. As a loyal Michigan alum and fan, I sometimes regret my undying loyalty. Finishing second feels worse than winning would have felt good. Now I get to sit in a stupid airport lounge for hours hoping to make standby so I can go home and finish this miserable trip as fast as possible. Somehow, I know how that will turn out.

Primesport.com is the official ticket exchange of NCAA. They are expensive tickets, but at least they should be legit. Stubhub.com is the only other legit option I can think of, but you have to pick up the tickets rather than paperless.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Thank you||
I enjoyed reading this. Very proud of Coach B and this team.
