Why can't the Yoopers have nice things?

I think Moeller was a good coach.
But again, that has nothing to do with it.
Legend leaves and the next guy gets all the high expectations, recalcitrant system and attitudes.
It's not until the program sinks lower and the "old guard" all leaves that true new leadership is accepted. By then the expectations are lower and the next guy looks like a savior.
This occurs all the time in business too.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Coaches that follow||
Coaches that follow "legendary" coaches don't fare well. Lots of resistance to change.
Expect 4 years of blah, maybe with 1 good year. Really thay are just an interm while the alumini work on other better prospects that are not yet ready to move.
Examples: Moeller, Rich Rod, Ellerbe I could go on in many sports and programs.
|1 week 1 day ago||I like the spread of the||
I like the spread of the schedule.
All summer to prepare for Florida.
6 weeks to prepare for PSU.
5 weeks to prepare for OSU.
Not buying Wisc hype or MSU comeback.
I predict another "on the edge season" where we can be undefeated or 3 losses by a few yards.

Agree. To skinny for NBA. Need many years of college dorm food before going pro.

Warde needs to bring in some older alumni and players and have them call him and chat about graceful exits stage left.

Off-season hits a new low.
Steroid junkies enlarging their hearts and destroying their livers to an early death.

End of an Age - Hockey at its best.
Gotta clean house managment on down - NHL too.
Watched the 20 year Wings Colorado brawl videos with my son, he commented that sports aren't like that any more.
NHL has gotten so wimpy - like soccer on ice.
Goodell has to go, another 10% ratings drop this year. "Taunting" penalties. We went from Probert to "Taunting" penalties?
NFL is going down same road. Too many rules, too many penalties, too long.
I used to watch the Wings every other game - I haven't watched a single game this year.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, so basically the||
Yeah, so basically the round-robin of PSU OSU and Michigan determines the B1G champ again.
Wisconsin gets another bye into the B1G championship game.
I'm not drinking the PSU coolaid - we drubbed them last year.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||That's an obvious||
That's an obvious statistic.
If you are a new coach, chances are the program was in the dumpster prior to your hire.
Then you improve every season until you hit a plateau.
Typically, a new coach gets a 6 loss team, improves to a 4 loss, improves to a 3 loss, improves to a 2 loss team in 3 years.
It is then nearly impossible to get an improvement past that point as there are very few 1 or 0 loss teams a year.

Nobody cares about S&P
Fans, media, potential recruits care about Big Ten Championships, Bowl Wins and National Championships.
It's been 13 years since a Big Ten Championship.

Then topped off with the Stanley Cup that season.
Best Wings year ever.

Now for the longggggggggggg 5 months of nothing but crappy baseball and a few months of the dead wings.
Get outdoors, forget sports until August.

This tourney is wide open. No teams look scary.
Just have to win 4 more games.

school has a good team, make headlines
find old controversial player for hot take, hopefully he says something stupid
watch as message board and clicks pile up
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Correct response. None of the||
None of the B1G teams have a deep team this year.
The elite teams have size, length and shooters at every position including the bench.
If you have a deep team, you can afford to hack at our good players.

All trend are trends until they are not.
Time to end that streak.

Penn State is rolling over looks like lock on #8 B1G seed.

Not OK with it, but administration at UofM is.
Unless there is a "concussiongate" incident I very much doubt he will be replaced if he makes the NCAAs somewhat regularly.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||News flash: He is making the||
He is making the NCAAs again. No way they replace him until he retires.
Red took hockey to NCAAs only 3 of the last 4 years and he is still there.
No drama program that makes the 64 every year is OK with Michigan.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||That's because the Big Ten is||
That's because the Big Ten is mediocre this year and though some might make past 1st round, all will get stomped in 2nd round by the 1st, 2nd, 3rd seeds.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Don't care about crazy||
Don't care about crazy 4-sigma last shot black swan events.
What concerns me is the bad getting worse free throw shooting.
You have to make free throws to win tourney games.
Rutgers and NW are not close games if we make free throws like we should.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Has any other school let so||
Has any other school let so many last second plays beat them accross every sport? Really?
Hail Mary = Michigan Loss every time
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Very important we get||
Very important we get confidence on the road - as the tourneys will be all neutral sites. These two sub-par teams up next need to be as important as Purdue.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Had PSView since late||
Had PSView since late summer.
Never missed any games, although ABC live I had to use my HD attenna.
Don't miss all the odd channels: "Chiller", "BBC", "Sprout", "Esquire", "Cooking" - who cares.
Cut $100 off cable bill. Over ten years that's $12,000.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah crappy refs But if we||
Yeah crappy refs
But if we make just one more free throw in regulation - we win.
I think if we win the games we are supposed to (rutgers, Neb) we are in.
More wins than that will move us up from around 10/11 to 9/8 and get us perhaps double bye in Big Ten tourney.
Go 0-4 or 1-3 in next 4 games, we don't deserve to be in.
|16 weeks 7 hours ago||"Elite Playmakers" This is||
This is the big difference.
Nobody on our offense scares anyone. Smith, Speight, Butt, etc - not one is going to have scary stats or big key plays against top 10 teams.
