the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

|1 hour 59 min ago||I reffed IM basketball.....||
at U of M in the early 90's and you didn't get paid much more than $7 a game. You were lucky to have officials at all.
If, by ridiculous coincidence, I was the ref of your game, the only time a T'd up a bench player was because he gave me some bullshit sarcastic comment after I gave him a warning for giving some dude on the other team grief because of his weight. That was a fraternity contest. I was in a fraternity and even I will admit that those games were aboslutely the worst to ref. I once gave a double red card in the Fraternity A soccer championship game, essentially disqualifying both teams.

In Michigan, girls basketball was moved to the winter season where it had previously been in the fall. The reason, IIRC, was because some lawsuit started by girls volleyball families who thought their daughters were getting the shaft for not having the sport line up with the college counterpart. They won, The MHSAA completely rearranged the girls sports alignment and now boys and girls basketball both occur in the winter. The most damaging downside is the reffing pool now has been seriously watered down with 9th, JV, and varsity games from both boys and girls occurring simultaneously.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Well....||
The jerk store called... and they're running out of you!
|5 days 4 hours ago||I hear that Peppers....||
and his shadow are a package deal.
|1 week 5 days ago||and even Brienne of Tarth........||
but seriously..... she does clean up pretty well.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Ah yes....||
but had that gone in, would we have made the championship game?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||A lot of supposition in your....||
post. Perhaps we'll be better off. I certainly hope so, but I think it is a reach to say with conviction that we are going to be better at the 2 even after losing a first team B1G player (coaches pick) at that position.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||How, exactly....||
are we upgrading at shooting guard?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||On a related note.....||
There once was a college football player that gave up a sure chance to be drafted in the first round of the NFL draft for a girl who, on top of being a stranger, didn't actually exist.
Your story is better though.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||but his obsession....||
is the good kind... not the kind that MSU fans have over Michigan... that kind is different.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||This is....||
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I am generally.....||
not very forgiving when it comes to posts that aren't original or substantial.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Get called for a bogus held ball?||
Don't do that.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Been called a charge all year.....||
With that said, I can arbitrarily pick a number of questionable calls that, had they gone Michigan's way, would have made the block/charge irrelevant.
|6 weeks 19 hours ago||Excellent.||
Make sure to update us with all OSU commits, especially those reported by 11 Warriors. While at it, pease provided real time updates for any MSU and Notre Dame commits. I'll be on the edge of my seat in the mean time.
|6 weeks 22 hours ago||Does that mean that Triche has....||
|6 weeks 22 hours ago||Interesting topic....||
Not saying that he would top the list, but Payne would also fit well in Michigan's offense, as hard as it might be to imagine.
|6 weeks 22 hours ago||Wait.... what?||
I don't think you mean baffling. Michigan has vacated victories. No one is denying that and no one is clamoring for those victories to be written back in the books.
Perhaps you meant ironic which, in reality, doesn't exactly fit either because Michigan, unlike Syracuse, is not facing impending sanctions.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Would be pretty comical....||
Third undefeated season since 1993...... and zero national championships.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||In his defense.....||
.....his mind has been poisoned by Sparty logic for roughly 30 years.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Not sure how to read this.....||
Are you saying that you lost respect for Smotryz because he saw the writing on the wall and reacted according to his perception of his best interests? We all seem to agree that his playing time was going to be severely diminished. Him leaving was not a major blow to Michigan's depth and it was most definitely the right thing for him to do if his desire is to be a major contributor and not a role player. From eveything I read, the transfer was on good terms. I don't see any reason to hate on the guy.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Since he and Robinson....||
....are roommates and supposedly pretty tight, I'm just going to assume that Robinson is feeling similarly.
No, one thing doesn't mean the other but I prefer that scenerio as opposed to the alternate.
In fact, I think I'm going to assume that everyone, including Burke, is planning to return for next season.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Meh....||
We should have been a 3 seed.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Could have been worse.||
I recall " Emus" being in the candidacy for potential mascot.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||You misread that....||
McGary did not say he expected to dominate Withey. He was (incorrectly) restating Withey's comments.
|7 weeks 59 min ago||A tad over statement.....||
Syracuse just dismantled a team that went 4-0 against Michigan and MSU.
Nothing is easy at this point.
|7 weeks 1 hour ago||It wasn't all that long ago...||
....where we suffered a similar fate against Indiana as Kansas did against us.
As stated by others, there was some giving and there was some taking last night, just as there was in our loss to Indiana (along with some extra giving by the refs).
|7 weeks 1 hour ago||Exactly||
This is not diary material. Barely board worthy.
|7 weeks 14 hours ago||I find it extremely.....||
...lowbrow to seek enjoyment in their misery, especially when our focus should be on rejoicing in a hell of a comeback.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||If we beat Kansas....||
I'll pull for Sparty. The idea of an all B1G Final Four is compelling.
If we lose...... I won't watch one second of their game. Fuck them both.
