Mercer, HP, St. Joe's and Furman need to be wins. Robert Morris and Bellarmine are somewhat new programs but are actually pretty good now (I was impressed with B'mine last year). AF was supposed to be winnable last year but Mich got crushed. Detroit could be winnable too. Last year's chedule was really hard and this looks a little easier.
I'm hoping this is the big breakout year for Michigan.
I thought ND was supposed to be on the schedule starting in Year 3. Also - I thought Mercer dropped its program but I guess not - anyone know about that?
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Yes - I agree . I'm a little||
Yes - I agree . I'm a little concerned about the holier-than-thou attitude some fans have. Pride comes before the fall. I didn't know about the Gibbons-Lewan scandal and I'm reading up on it now and its repulsive. They should have been punished. They should still be punished. I was hoping Michigan wouldnt' let their players get away with stuff like this. I really hope its not true. If it is - it puts Michigan in the Penn State-ND category.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Was anyone there and tell him||
Was anyone there and tell him to take it down? i hope the other Michigan fans at Game Day didnt think it was funny.
This is a disgrace. This guy is a loser and should be ashamed of himself. He makes all Michigan fans, students and alumni look like assholes...
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Ohio State #1 , but there is||
Ohio State #1 , but there is a certain joy that comes with beating them when come in undefeated and/or in the national title race. Sometimes late in the season I actually root for them to win so Michigan can take them down.
ND, Alabama, Florida, South Carolina - other SEC teams. Any team who has ESPN on its jock.
I hate Wisconsin now, so them too.

KBC is awesome but its really small. I never go to Buffalo anymore (partly because I live right around the block from KBC now), but its too crazy in there during the games. Its huge but it gets really crowded and becomes a little hard to concentrate on the game.
The dudes who run KBC are great. For the Final 4 and title game they put TVs outside on the roof so people could watch from the street.
Those guys are opening another place Ivy & Coney on 7th st in Shaw - http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/blogs/youngandhungry/2013/07/10/kangaroo-boxing-club-owners-to-open-bar-in-shaw/
So presumably they'll be showing Michigan games there, making KBC a little less crowded. Wont be open til October though...

Awesome! Good W. Much needed win. Proved me wrong! Go Blue!

Matt Graham, a highly-touted, All American recruit from Chaminade on Long Island, is conspicuously absent from the roster.
Emil Weiss ,last year's goalie, is no longer on the roster either. As good as Logan has been, Weiss was just as good. Think I would rather have a sophomore in goal than a true freshman. Just hope we dont start with another freshman goalie next year.
Dutton- O'Hara and Francia transferred from St Johns and Villanova respectively, both decent programs. Gaughan was recruited by Navy, Penn State and some other east coast schools as well and I think a handful of other current players were recruited by other teams as well.
Back in the day we had at least 5 kids who were recruited by varsity teams and that was with no recruiting, weight room access, academic help or other perks. So I thought Mich would have had a better talent base to build on than Marquette, HP, etc.
|33 weeks 14 hours ago||Recruiting doesnt mean shit||
Recruiting doesnt matter if we can't keep kids on the team. There are at least two legit players who were recruited and who are on campus ( I think) but are not on the team. That is not good...
Lacrosse is not all recruiting. Michigan should still be able to compete. Even the club program was recruiting for years before going varsity and Michigan was always able to coax some D-1 talent away from east coast programs.
This really was the only chance left for a win. St Joes is 5-8, probably not gonna happen.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||I was at the game at Hopkins||
I was at the game at Hopkins a few weeks ago and I went today. the improvement is certainly evident.
The faceoffs looked pretty good. Clears were way better. and it seems that between hernandez, joseph and jackson they have a few guys who can create on offense.
they are really frustrating to watch for two reasons though: 1)they are not physical. They had lots of opportunities to tune guys up and they didn't. Especially on unsettled plays in the midfield. If they are always going to be the less skilled team, they should at least throw their bodies around and let 'em know they're there.
2)They don't throw checks, which is infuriating. I don't understand the modern system of defense. So, if they're playing to set up the slides, they better get them right. And if you are sliding you have to take the body and be physical. Otherwise, the D will never be able to keep them in games.
Bu the last few games were really encouraging. I just hope they can start rolling and pick up some W's.
|38 weeks 17 hours ago||well i guess there's only one||
well i guess there's only one thing left to do...
win the whole fucking thing.
|38 weeks 5 days ago||I thought they would be||
I thought they would be better by now. I thought Michigan would be able to make the transition more successfully than they have thus far. I'm afraid they won't win a game this year. I think a lot of the turbulence and turnover has hurt the team.
I think its great that there are a lot of freshmen getting quality minutes. I just wish there were more experienced upperclassmen around to shoulder the burden for now.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||I'm surprised at this||
I'm surprised at this outcome. Didn't think Army was that good and Michigan was that bad. That dude Thul is legit though so I guess Michigan didn't have anyone who could stop him.
Michigan perplexes me as a team. They are so unpredictable and I don't really know what to think. With a discouraging result like this it's hard to see who they could beat on the schedule. Wednesday is definitely their best chance. Hope they can get a couple more this year too...
|40 weeks 1 day ago||I agree man. Its starting to||
I agree man. Its starting to look like Portugal vs Italy in the World Cup out there. Block/charge is really hurting the game and makes it frustrating to watch. Refs so rarely go with the no-call which I think is the best call most of the time. Flops and dives need to be punished. Crean even told Sheehy to do that.
|40 weeks 2 days ago||Michigan 76 State 72||
|40 weeks 5 days ago||Oh yeah I forgot about that||
Oh yeah I forgot about that check. It was aactually a great hit. Hope he heals up soon.
Any reason why Graham left? Was he kicked off or did he quit/transfer?
|40 weeks 5 days ago||I was at the game and thought||
I was at the game and thought they did pretty well. They definitely played hard and hung with the Jays for the first few minutes. Despite the score it was a fun game to be at. There are a lot of encouraging signs out there. I think they should have gone into Ohio kill-the-clock mode after going up 1-0!
I also have a few questions for the mgolacrosse community:
1) Was the officiating as bad as it looked? We couldn't see replays, but it seemed like the two early pushes that gave Hopkins man-up goals were kind of soft/bad calls (don't worry - I'm not stupid, I know the game didn't hinge on the refs!)
2) Was Logan OK? He made a ton of awesome saves and then when the ball went to the other end he would double over in pain. He was wearing huge shoulder pads (which D-1 goalies never do) and seemed to be playing hurt. Heroic effort though.
3) What happened to Matt Graham? I didn't see him on the field and he's not listed on the roster. I thought he was supposed to be Michigan's first All-American recruit and he doesn't appear to be on the team which is discouraging.
|41 weeks 5 days ago||I second that. Do it at the||
I second that. Do it at the UM hospital. It's amazing. I had the same experience you had when I broke my leg. Surgery at the hospital and rehab through medsport.
When I actually got my ACL I did it at a hospital other than UM and it sucked.
As someone mentioned earlier, hoops and tennis are probably out of the question. Anything that requires a lot of hard running, planting, stopping and cutting is going to be tough. You'll be able to do it, just not the same way you used to.
Better think about playing first on a sottball team or taking up golf!
|41 weeks 6 days ago||Too bad. another one gets||
Too bad. another one gets away. after going up 3-0, Michigan was outscored 12-3 the rest of the game. In a pivotal stretch in the 3rd they gave up a goal on a man-up and then gave up goals on a botched clear and undisciplined play in unsettled situations and that about did it.
|41 weeks 6 days ago||Ahhh - Michigan just let up a||
Ahhh - Michigan just let up a shorthanded goal on that last one.

6-4 Bellarmine at half.
|42 weeks 15 hours ago||twitter is the worst.||
twitter is the worst. Honestly, is there anything good that ever comes out of twitter? I work in politics in DC, particularly in congressional scandals and corruption. And for the life of me I don't understand what anyone gets out of twitter other than an unnecessary outlet for scandals to escape. And a way to kvetch and/or pick fights with assholes like Dan Dakich. A twitter account is just asking for trouble and I don't really get what the upside is.
For example,yesterday a TN congressman sent 2 twitter messages to a young woman and then immediately erased them. It seemed like there was another Anthony Weiner-style scandal in the works. Turned out it was his secret, illegitimate daughter (he is a long time bachelor). It wasn't too lurid but you can bet his opponents will use that against him in the next election. All because of twitter! But, I suggest checking out pics of the the daughter - holy hell is she hot.
|42 weeks 5 days ago||I agree . I think Morgan is||
I agree . I think Morgan is so key on defense. While he may not make a lot of big highlight reel plays, hes usually in the right spot to hedge on a pick or otherwise disrupt the flow of the offense. It's also good just to have some experience on the floor. And he's a good finisher.
I'm surprised no on has really mentioned it. I think with him on the floor, maybe Michiggan wins the Indiana game. Ohio State doesnt go to OT because we don't let up so many weak offensive boards down the stretch. And today...well...lets not talk about today.
His absence has allowed McGary to get a ton of minutes though and he's developing very nicely. I'm psyched to see Morgan and McGary on the floor at the same time when he comes back. They'll wreak havoc.
I'm really surprised the announcers didnt mention him. I honestly don't recall his name being mentioned once. I was getting tired of hearing Jared Sullinger being mentioned more than a key player who was actually in the building. Dakich is a buffoon, what should I really expect?
|42 weeks 6 days ago||So they lost 11-6 to Penn||
So they lost 11-6 to Penn State today. Down 2 at the half and then Penn State went on a strong again just like last year. Still, a somewhat encouraging result. They'll probably be better this year than last year.
Also - don't look now, but High Point may be a tougher game than anticipated. They lost to Delaware by 2 and then beat Towson last night.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||Worst fucking game ever. I||
Worst fucking game ever. I hate Wisconsin. Shoulda had it.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||FUCK. I'm sick of this game.||
FUCK. I'm sick of this game. I want to get the hell out of Madison with a W. The longer we stay out on the court and leave it up to the refs that will become less likely. I hate Big 10 officiating and I'm sick of Dakich saying how great it is.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||WOW! I was about to complain||
WOW! I was about to complain that Micihgan never seems to have a play drawn up inthese situations - ha!
|42 weeks 6 days ago||hows is that a foul? i||
hows is that a foul? i hate college basketball officiating, this crew especially.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||Biefelt - ahhh. He's played||
Biefelt - ahhh. He's played pretty well but hes not a good finisher.
Michigan needs to go on a run and just bury this team...now's the time.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||Its hard to figure out what||
Its hard to figure out what is worse - the officiating or the announcing.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||Ugh i know...I found that||
Ugh i know...I found that hard to believe. I think the officiating has been horrendous in this game...
