|1 week 14 hours ago||Completely selfish decision||
As some have said, Jon's decision to leave is selfish. It is completely selfish on Jon's part to leave Michigan. BUT, there is NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. Jon stayed all 4 years in a system that wasn't ideal for him while being told all along by his family to transfer.
I do not fault Jon one bit for leaving. He committed to Michigan and stayed his 4 years. It isn't like he's leaving early, he graduates next month. He's honored his commitment. As Coach B said, "No harm, no foul". Coach B's response is simply perfect.
Good luck to Jon and best wishes.
|1 week 6 days ago||Serious question||
When will Nuss have time to work with DG? Wasn't yesterday their last Spring practice? When can they practice with coaches again?
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||Woodson||
I know Charles played offense, defense and special teams but I did not know he played hockey too. Damn that man has skilz.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Speaking of QB||
I want to see Devin of the early games last year, a confident passer. I don't want to see the Devin of the end of the ND game or the games that followed.
I want to see Shane make accurate passes with the right amount of zip on the ball, as well as making good reads.
I want to see Green hitting the holes provided and making people miss on others.
I want to see receivers run good routes and make good catches on maybe not so good throws.
I want to see our FG kicker hit consistantly.
I think this is what you can see from the Spring Game. I plan to watch it on TV with beer, where I can rewind and see again and again. I think the at Spring Game experience is blah.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||Comes down to the refs||
I don't know basketball like most of you do but I see this game coming down to foul calls. I thought Wichta State got jobbed by the refs against KY. KY drove the lane time and time again, picking up foul after foul. I see this potential again tomorrow night, putting JMo in foul trouble.
We will need good play out of Jon for solid minutes I predict.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks Brian||
I've been looking for a write up like this since we lost to PSU the last time. I gotta say, reading your report on the future doesn't get me too excited however.
I'm gald I'm not the only one unhappy with Downing's decision making of late. Didn't he cost us a goal in the last game and another break away that ended up being a good save?
I don't see the effort in De Jong. I don't see him stretch on the blue line to even try to keep the puck in. I don't see any hussle.
I sure hope the defense gets their act together this year. I know we need more goals but this defense is not UM-like.
|4 weeks 3 hours ago||Way to battle the bigs!||
We got some rebounds...
|4 weeks 3 hours ago||I don't think so||
I've noticed that in many, many games. I think it is just pressure related somehow.
|4 weeks 13 hours ago||Patrick is only 14||
I just assumed he was a young adult. For some reason this is just harder to take knowing his young age. Hopefully they got the entire tumor.

Not planned around bball but taking advantage yesterday when not on shitter and today when not in procedure, in a couple of hours.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Got it. Deleted it.||
I wasn't in the mood following last night's performance.
I have considered dropping hockey, only because I have season tickets to the major three and with all three having PSDs I feel I spend way too much on UM sports. I selected hockey as the potential drop due to it having the highest PSD (club seats) by far and the product is substandard anymore. However, since I have already paid the PSD for next season I might as well renew one more year.
Is the program ready for a coaching change? Was Mel really the coach and Red the figure head? Performance since. Mel's departure makes me wonder.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||No MGoBlog write ups?||
I searched this site and couldn't find anything. I thought MGB did Hello posts. I guess I'd have to search the 4 individual names.
Thanks for the link.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Saturday's performance was outstanding||
Watching that game all I could think was that they could play against anyone. That was a fun game to see live.
Looking at the roster, will we ever balance out the years? Huge class graduating again next year after only 5 this year.
Where can I read about our 2014 recruits? I've searched nearly everywhere.
|5 weeks 6 hours ago||blow out||
It sure started that way. Whew what a survival couple of games. We need to practice inbounding, free throw shooting and getting Nik the damn ball. Go Blue! Beat Sparty again!
|5 weeks 3 days ago||IU||
I'm worried about the BTT since I'm sure IU will beat UofI. We'll have to play IU in Indy. IU came close to beating us at Crisler. If we lose to IU we certainly lose the 2 seed. I know that's not the end of the world but it hurts.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I love Cosmo's||
We ate there for lunch yesterday. They have the best Bim Bop in town, Kerrytown that is.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Likely||
It is very likely we will. And I feel the same way.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Hoarse||
My voice is hoarse from yelling "Get off the court!" so many times, from the other end of the court. At 48, I really should grow up.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Horford||
There are a few pictures out there with Jon having a strange look on his face while others (Mitch) are having a blast. Did anyone else see Jon not want to go up on the ladder and cut his piece of net? He went ahead and cut his piece and then gave it to an assistant. I don't get it.
Well after the game Jon was at the big M fountain signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. Way cool.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Crean||
There are the videos of Crean getting into our coach and then turning around with his shit-eating grin. But what I recall from that game was Crene running around our court after the win like a jackass. As I was at the game and saw this, this is what pissed me off about the jerk. It wasn't until later that I learned of his other actions.
I love Trey Burke.

Hockey's Bubba Berenzweig!

I told you I am from Indiana...
They learned me to read good, and type.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||People Change||
I grew up in Indiana and therefore an IU Basketball fan and later an ND Football fan. All of that changed during my first semester at the University of Michigan. I am now a die hard Wolverine. I don't hate ND. I didn't hate IU until last year when Crene was such an ass and Home Depot dunked during the clock kill. Now "to hell with ......IU".
If Malik attends UofM he will be brian washed just like I was.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I saw it||
I also saw Nik showing the refs during the game. They all clutch and grab Nik.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I too know Rob||
Rob is a stand up guy and is quite good at his job. If you contact him directly with any concerns he will get back to you too.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I've been there||
twice. It is a crazy place to watch your team get run out of. I was there last year and the year before that. I chose not to go this year, big mistake.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Staee can't guard Nik||
State can't guard Nik like Iowa, IU and Wiscy apparently can. Maybe they did for a half but can't withstand it.
Payne was gassed halfway through the first half.
Appling's fall early in the second half ended his perimeter shooting. He clearly hurt his right wrist again and never ever took a shot longer than 3 feet after. Harris was on fire though. Valentine was a lot of trouble for us as well.
Lavert just knows when to take control of a game (early) and Nik knows when to end it (late).
I am so impressed with how well this team hits the free throws at the end of a game.
What a great experience to witness live.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||TV||
Sports TV coverage has gotten much better with big screens and HD formatting. I like away football games because I get to watch them on TV. I'm a season ticket holder of Football, Basketball and Hockey and the in-game experience is losing it's luster on me. Maybe I'm just getting old. Get Off My Lawn!

Sorry, Dual Income No Kids. Can't help there.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Bar help||
Is there an Ann Arbor bar that opens early enough on Sundays for pre-game drinks? Sunday's game starts at noon and all bars I look into open at noon. Please help. Thanks
