I don't know if the cannon guys were all angry. To me, it looked like the one guy is trying to make sure Jabrill doesn't stand in front of the cannon. Because, that's probably not a great place to be.

So, Michigan has twice as many wins against the current top 25 as the rest of the Big 10 combined (2 vs. 1)? I like it.

I agree with those that said take the family to a game. If they have another family day, go to that. If she meets some of the players, she will definitely root for them.

-1.5? I'll take the over. I can't see it being a negative number even if we do have talented upperclassmen.

Chris Ash's voice reminds me of comedian Brian Regan's "I'm an idiot" voice.

That's a cool video, but I'm getting tired of the hype videos that start with the lowlights from the previous season. I remember it seeming cool on the better son/daughter video several years back, because we weren't used to fighting back from bad seasons and everyone was ready for the RR spread to hit its stride. Now, several bad seasons later, watching Michigan get knocked around doesn't work as well in hype videos. It just feels frustrating and sad.
But, the video is still great. Just tired of seeing Michigan get beat up.

I think you're using the word "report" rather loosely here.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||When they played "t-shirt||
When they played "t-shirt time" followed by Timber right at the end of the third quarter, I couldn't take it any more. I don't need to see people shoot t-shirts into the stands on the big screen, and I definitely don't need crap music accompanying it. The manufactured "excitement" is hard to sit through. I suggest Dave Brandon's wow factor find a new team to support. Have a happy life!!!
I had never heard that t-shirt time song, but apparently it's from Jersey Shore. Sounds about right.

Nothing is gained by keeping him. Keeping him only causes fans to have their souls ripped apart because they want Michigan to win every game, but they also know losing is better for long term program health because it guarantees changes. If they made a change now, that inner dilemna would at least go away.

He lived in the area for a while after that (very close to the stadium at first), but eventually moved with his family to Florida. He never went back to coaching. Supposedly, he was a pretty good recruiter too. Young, energetic guy at the time.
For what it's worth, he seemed pretty happy the times I saw him at social gatherings (which was years after his coaching). I don't know him very well at all, but we have some friends in common, so there's been small talk at barbecues and stuff. Never about football though.

|2 years 21 weeks ago||Malaise||
I bought one the past two years the first chance I could, but I haven't made the pledge this year. I'm not at all excited about football season which is a big change. Last year had to be the least exciting iteration of Michigan football I can remember (bend don't break defense, running into the line of scrimmage), so it dampens my desire to read long in-depth articles.
Also, I agree with some of the previous comments that almost everything from last year was printed on the blog anyway. The position groups and predictions are reprinted with more up-to-date information. Besides, I feel that there isn't much "new" to this year's team. The Nussmeier information is about it. What else is there to be excited about at this point? Everyone is waiting for the team to prove it on the field.
Brian's comments or attitudes during any union or Purge discussion had no impact whatsoever on my lack of enthusiasm about ordering HTTV. However, I'm of the belief that athletes should get better health care and guaranteed scholarships, so whatever method they wish to pursue to achieve those things is fine by me. I guess I wasn't in the crowd that was offended by Brian's take on the subject.
I'll probably end up ordering it, but I'm in no rush. This is the same attitude I had towards my season tickets this year. It took an e-mail after the deadline for the tickets. I should be able to order HTTV on time. I would've already ordered it if the "Sports" shirt was an option.

I ran it with a few friends. It was so nice to run through campus then finish in the Big House, especially with the great weather this morning. I thought it was a really fun event, and I'm looking forward to doing it again next year.

LeVert is having a bad day. It's causing me to have a bad day.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||We get a chance to make a||
We get a chance to make a run, then a really dumb turnover. When you're down 15, you have to be smarter than that.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Just a total dump of a game.||
Just a total dump of a game. Throwing away the one seed and letting MSU feel good about themselves.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||When you don't play defense||
When you don't play defense or rebound, the margin of error on offense is pretty thin. Way too thin to take the shots they're taking or turning the ball over every other play. Someone needs to step up and take control of this mess.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||It's hard to make up ground||
It's hard to make up ground if every State possession lasts a minute and a half. The constant offensive rebounds on their end is frustrating.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||If you're going to play zero||
If you're going to play zero defense and not get any rebounds, then you have to play very well on offense. That is not happening. A lot of sloppy turnovers and bad decisions. Beilfeldt playing so much has hurt on both ends, but that's not Morgan's fault not his.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Exactly. He hasn't gotten||
Exactly. He hasn't gotten that call all night, so quit giving away possessions thinking it will work this time. The refs have made it obvious they are letting it get rough on those drives.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Just not playing smart||
Just not playing smart basketball. A ton of sloppy passes and really bad decisions. Every time they look ready for a run, there has been a frustratingly sloppy turnover.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||When was the last time that||
When was the last time that Michigan didn't come out looking like garbage during the first 10 minutes of the game? They've been able to come back a few times, but it's been so ugly at the beginning. 8 points during the first 12 minutes tonight. That is awful. I would expect a team of 5 Aaron Crafts to be able to score 8 points in 12 minutes.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Another game with no defense||
Another game with no defense and no one able to hit a shot. A lot of ugly shots and bad decisions leads to another huge halftime deficit. We are getting used to hearing announcers talking about how Michigan needs to wake up during the first half of games.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||No offense, no defense, no||
No offense, no defense, no rebounding. Not a recipe for a good game. Hard to watch so far.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||Could it have been mentioned||
Could it have been mentioned with your wording? Yes. However, these are things obvious to everyone. You are not the only one who understands this is all reprehensible. Everyone knows this, so it is not necessary. I wouldn't take advice on living a moral life from a blogger any more than I would from an athlete.
I knew Lewan was involved in the cover up but was confused about the frat mention. Was their a conspiracy among the members of that fraternity to cover it up. It sounds like your friend was against that idea as I'm sure others were.
