Peppers at 10, which seems low.

I'd take the best player on OSU. If you're going to make yourself better, might as well make your rival worse.

Jets over Colts
Knicks over Lakers.

Hmm. I'm going to be at a baseball conference in Scottsdale on 11/4 when Michigan is playing Arizona State. I wonder if they're going to play it in Glendale or at Oceanside Arena. The latter sounds of the old Michigan Coliseum.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Baseball America also had||
Baseball America also had Michigan in before the B1G tourney and it's latest bubble watch didn't even mention Michigan. I think that means they think we're in. We'll know by this time tomorrow.

Beat OSU! Buckeyes blow a 4-0 ninth inning lead over Iowa. Game is at about 9 tonight!
|9 weeks 15 min ago||Couldn't they get just as||
Couldn't they get just as much attention playing in the Meadowlands? Or, are they worried that the extra seats would all be empty?
|9 weeks 1 day ago||According to Baseball||
According to Baseball America, Michigan is one of the last four in, as is OSU. It would behoove Michigan to win at least one game this weekend.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Good thing I looked at all||
Good thing I looked at all the posts, as I was going to post: God saves and Espo scores on the rebound.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Game 1 of the weekend goes to||
Game 1 of the weekend goes to Michigan, 1-0, over the Illini.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||FWIW, Baseball America not||
FWIW, Baseball America not only still has Michigan in the field of 64, it's still giving Michigan a two seed in a regional. Obviously, it would behoove Michigan to win at least two at Illinois this weekend and to at least make a run in the B1G Tourney, but all is not lost. (I'd rather have a five game losing streak over the last two weeks than a five game losing streak over the next two weeks.)
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Baseball America updated its||
Baseball America updated its projected field of 64 a little while ago. Michigan is a two seed in Nashville along with one seed Vanderbilt, three seed Virginia, and four seed Kent State. Interestingly, last year's NCAA final was Virginia beating Vandy. Four B1G teams are in the field: Michigan, Minnesota (3), Sparty(2) and Maryland (3). The Terps are among the last four in.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Actually Baseball America||
Actually Baseball America does project the field of 64 and the regionals and two weeks ago, Michigan was hosting a regional in Ann Arbor. I didn't check last week. They usually post the field of 64 on Wednesday.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Bakich certainly has a good||
Bakich certainly has a good track record. He took a Maryland program that was on the verge of being dropped and turned it into a respectable program. The Terp team that almost beat Virginia in the Super Regionals in 2014 was basically composed of all of his recruits.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||One thing not noted already||
One thing not noted already is that 10 days ago, Stripling was headed to Triple-A. I'm pretty sure he hadn't pitched a ton of innings coming into the game, and Roberts was probably hoping to get six innings out of him. He went longer in deference to the no-no, but at the first sign of trouble, he was coming out.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||One difference here is that||
One difference here is that Mullin doesn't have the option of staying and playing at Columbia. Also I think Beilein, while criticizing the rule that permits this, isn't about to be the only coach in America who fails to take advantage of the rule.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||FWIW, I know a former Florida||
FWIW, I know a former Florida football player who's still an active alum. We haven't discussed this, but I do know that the Gator nation is getting frustrated being a relatively clean program in the SEC.

Disrespect of the B1G seems to be the night's theme.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Vandy and Wichita State in.||
Vandy and Wichita State in. Uggh.
|20 weeks 18 hours ago||I'm not happy with Beilein's||
I'm not happy with Beilein's coaching this year, but he gets a little bit of pass when you consider his best player and best leader were essentially out all year. That said, if I were Warde Manuel, I'd be exploring options. I'm also a little concerned about who might be next. There's no Jim Harbaugh waiting in the wings to save his alma mater (unless he wants to coach two sports). It would be great to get a Brad Stevens, but what's the odds he'd take the job????
|20 weeks 19 hours ago||I haven't been watching, but||
I haven't been watching, but I'm curious if they used the 1-3-1 with Robinson out front that worked well against Iowa.
|20 weeks 19 hours ago||Irvin and Walton are supposed||
Irvin and Walton are supposed to be the guys who step forward when games are on the line. They do step forward, but usually that means a brick is being laid.
|20 weeks 20 hours ago||I noticed he'd had a god||
I noticed he'd had a god awful first half. Figured he would not do the same this half.
|20 weeks 20 hours ago||Part of the problem is the||
Part of the problem is the back-to-back schedule. If the goal is to beat N'western, the guys like Dakich shouldn't see the court, at least much. However, if the goal is, for example, to beat Indiana tomorrow, you've got to rest your best players a little or they'll be of little use in the next game.

I believe the article notes that MAAR is not a practicing Muslim.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||I think a win of N'western||
I think a win of N'western and Indiana would get us in although perhaps that would be a play-in bid.

Much more of this and we'll be on the bubble in hockey too.

delete double post -- my boss had the temerity to come in while I was posting.

We'd really be singing Rudy's praises if Johnny Orr had been able to recruit anyone to support him. Heck, Michigan used Bird Carter, all 6-1 of him, at pivot in order to let Rudy play his natural position of forward.
BTW, not to diminish Rudy's stature, but I've always questioned how rebounding stats were compiled back in the day. I covered the game for the Daily in which he broke Buntin's record, and decided to count every time Rudy touched the ball after a missed shot. I had fewer touches than the number of rebounds with which he was credited.

I expect Rudock to be a late round pick by Baltimore.
