"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

Actually it was 1971 that he went nuts on the sideline. My recollection in 1969 was that he was in shock.

I was on the Daily at the time. The widely circulated edition on Sunday headlined "M Blasts Bucks". I had a copy of the limited rhyming edition. Unfortunately it didn't survive my parents last move.
Clearly 24-12 is my choice.

Actually I think the last couple of times, the Oceania leader got to play the fourth place CONCACAF country. Unfortunately this year Mexico's machinations led them to a fourth place -- actually a lucky fourth place finish -- so New Zealand got to play a much better team than one might expect. For example, I suspect New Zealand would have had an easier time with Honduras -- or Panama (who would have finished fourth if the US hadn't rallied to beat them in the final game of qualifying).

The Nationals announced the signing of M pitcher James Bourque, a 14th rounder.

Hail to the Redskins!
Spuds on the Warpath!
Fight for old DC (and Prince Georges County))
Run or pass and score -- we want seconds too!
Whip 'em, gravy 'em
Touchdown! -- Let the calories soar!
Fight on, fight on 'Til you have won!
Spuds of Washington, Rah! Rah! Rah!
Hail to the Redskins!
Spuds on the Warpath!
Fight for old D.C.

Maybe Les is worried about his kid's education. Recently I was at a cooking demonstration in New Orleans. The chef - a former NFL player - commented during the demo that he hadn't gone to college, he'd gone to LSU.

Another Klinsman take from Sunday's NYTimes Magazine: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/08/magazine/how-jurgen-klinsmann-plans-to-make-us-soccer-better-and-less-american.html?ref=international

Isn't it at Chad-Denard Field?

24-12 -- the real start of the Bo era -- has got to be hands down the choice. I was hired by ABC to assist in the production and before the game, they were worried about keeping fans interested in the second half, since they were assuming OSU would be up be several touchdowns by then.

Glasgow puts his life and other in danger and gets essentially a one-game suspension. Mitch M smokes a joint or two and gets a season. Yeah, that makes sense.

I noticed Maryland has had a very good season this year. Is it with Bakich recruits or with players who came after he left?

My recollection is the Gutierrez was going to start the opener, but it wasn't set in stone that he was the established starter.

If we're talking baseball, George Sisler probably trumps Larkin.

Pretty much need to use StubHub if you don't already have tickets or an in.

I'm not sure the same issues would apply to someone coming from a foreign country. The reasons for going to a JuCo might be totally different for someone like that.
|16 weeks 13 hours ago||I know someone who was an||
I know someone who was an academic advisor during the Amaker years. He couldn't wait for Tommy to go. He said that most of the guys Amaker recruited barely went to class. Conclusion: at least he could have won games if he wasn't getting players who wanted an education.

On Friday, Kentucky shot in excess of 81% from the free throw line. The Harrison's were 11-for-12 and they were the ones most likely to be fouled early in the possession. Do we need to belabor this debate any further?
|16 weeks 5 days ago||This is going to take a while||
This is going to take a while to resolve, probably a year or two. After the full NLRB makes a decision, either side can take it to a US Circuit Court of Appeal. After that, the losing party can attempt to get the Supreme Court to weigh in. The Supremes are not obliged to take it, but there are enough sports fans among the nine justices that I wouldn't be surprised if they took it.

Thank you for this scolumn and thank you JMo. This column literally brought tears to my eyes.

I wouldn't be shocked to see someone transfer a la Smotrycz. With the incoming freshman and those guys back, someone may decide that he'd rather go somewhere where he can play something other than garbage minutes.

How about NATIONAL Coach of the Year!

I was just going to post the same thing. Not only is it an insight into Michigan football in the 20s, but it highlights perhaps the best qb in Michigan history and a qb who tends to get short shrift on this board.

On the basketball side of things you might want to consider Rudy T or Bill Buntin.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||And once again, no love in||
And once again, no love in this thread for Benny Friedman. He would have won the Heisman -- probably twice -- if it existed in the 20s.

Please delete. I searched via my iPAD and nothing showed up -- and then it did. Sorry.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Playing at Fenway, CitiField,||
Playing at Fenway, CitiField, or Yankee Stadium is probably a non-starter, they all hold only about 40-45,000. Playing in the Meadowlands might make sense, but that's probably going to happen sooner or later one of the years they play Rutgers.

Really liked Miles' demeanor and candor. When Beilein decides to retire, Michigan could do a lot worse than trying to bring Miles to Ann Arbor.

If true, for some reason this bothers me as much, if not more, that all the other stuff going on regarding his commitment. If you can't level with your teammate, then you've got major issues. It's one thing to say something like, "I'm not saying; wait and see." It's an entirely different thing to tell your teammate, and one would have to think your friend, that you're going to school with him when you've already made up your mind otherwise.

Maybe the Freep has a story they can investigate that has some substance.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||Beliein is now third in||
Beliein is now third in Michigan coaching wins behind Bill Frieder and Johnny Orr*. At his current pace, he's likely to become Michigan's winningest basketball coach sometime in the 2015-16 season.
*Steve Fisher would also be ahead of him, but for the wins wiped out as a result of the Martin scandal.
