Still have any pull there? Looking for an MGoJob in operations/sales

I would be wary about driving a car with Michigan plates as it will likely end up a target. Hopefully your sister has a garage. Honestly, I would wear a jacket over your Michigan gear until you make it into the stadium and upon leaving. That way you can support the team and avoid an unruly crowd that would love nothing more to throw beer and/or piss at you. Cheer for your team with gusto and have a good time!

Yeah the exams for this class were ridiculous. Was convinced I failed the final because I missed the class that went over Laplace transforms. Got a 32. Class average was a 29! Our GSI who f'in taught us the materials got a 57. Absurd

52-50. Donnal to the bench with 4. 6:34 to go. Michigan showing nothing on offense. Defense par for the course.

Damn I hate that auto sub BS. We might want to consider guarding the 3 pt line... BTN to Go good so far
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Shots not falling||
The shots aren't falling because we aren't creating good looks. Teams have shut down the drive the baseline and kick to the corner and we have made 0 adjustments to counter. Our best pure shooter, Duncan, fails to exert effort to get open and then just stands there like a sad puppy. Our best guy at taking people off the dribble and potentially creating open looks, MAAR, is the best at finishing around the basket so he doesn't get any assists. The ball doesn't move around AT ALL. What happened to the pick and roll that has shown flashes of being incredibly efficient? Not even worth discussing defense because this team doesn't play any.

If Rudock is the "safe play" lets get dangerous. Shane would have made that first touchdown pass with his RIGHT arm. My dead parapalegic grandmother would have been a better conservative play. Sure the first pick was probably on Perry but Rudock showed me NOTHING. Receivers were open. He sucks. Bench him. Transfer him back to Iowa.

Blazed with Chad Henne once. He was an uninteresting doofus before we toked. He was an uninteresting doofus after we smoked. However, we were less hesitant to laugh at him being an uninteresting doofus post-blaze.

|2 years 15 weeks ago||Realistic Expectations||
It is undeniable that Beilein is great at scouting and developing players and putting them in positions to succeed. A common misconception, however, is that individual players or missing shots can be blamed for the woes of this team and Beliein does not shoulder any of that responsibilty. I agree that the Novak/Douglass era was not exceptional, rather the teams exceeded expectations that were low due to the lack of talent and previous years mired by sanctions. I contend that the offensive system Beilein employs relies too heavily on exceptional play from guards and wings and when we don't get the stud recruits, our expectations need to be lowered. I would love if Beilein utilized the post more in this offense and would subsequently be able to recruit bigs that could help erase some of the deficits of the teams on a night by night basis by blocking shots and grabbing offensive rebounds/garbage points. Also, our offense has become a little too predictable and teams have begun to take away what is successful. At least three times last night, Spike or Walton drove the baseline and attempted to pass to a wing in the corner, but the passes were intercepted because people simply watched film and knew what was coming. Rant over. Go Blue!

In defense of Caris, that wild lay up attempt was WAY easier than simply laying it in or f'in DUNKING it. Unfreakinbelievable
|2 years 17 weeks ago||More Zone||
This team consistently gets beat off the dribble in man defense. The zone looked disruptive and very effective. Love Caris up top. B1G win to start the conference slate. Keep it up fellas
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Chicken or the egg?||
Will we start integrating post play into the offense and become a viable destination for talented big men? Or will recruit talented big men allowing us to run through the post? Time to modify the offense a tick or continue to rely on outside shooting/NBA level isolation players.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Caris, Irvin, Walton, Doyle, Spike||
Not as consistently as the guys you pointed out, but the swag, that dawg, the eye of the tiger is not lacking on this team. Hopefully this will come out to the forefront in B1G play and the team will come into its own. Unfortunately, the ceiling may be limited due to the lack of depth, experience and athleticism at the 4 and 5.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Roll is an empty threat||
Ricky Doyle has shown some flashes of being a strong finisher around the rim, but does not command the attention of the defense allowing an easy hedge on Levert/Irvin. That being said, our current conundrum of not having strong, capable bigs will only be perpetuated if the staff does not make a conscious effort to involve the position more on offense. Why would a capable post scorer and interior presence want to come play in this offense? Big Mitch was able to carve out a substantial roll due to his unique playmaking ability allowing him to create his own offense, but the prototypical big will not get enough touches. We need to start to posting up for posting up's sake or more posts like this will continue to be posted.

That was a great win early in the season. Both teams played hard. Irvin and Caris played with passion and seemed very comfortable in the NBA arena. Doyle appears to have good instincts and a high motor and will be a big part of the team this year. Not worried about Walton not having a big impact; he played good D and ran the offense without turning the ball over. Chatman and/or DJ Wilson need to learn how to use their length to impact the game on both sides. My only complaint is when the game is close and the opponent is in the bonus, HOW BOUT WE DON'T KEEP FOULING THE GUY SHOOTING 100% ON THE YEAR. Go Blue!
