Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

|1 week 8 hours ago||Holy Cross||
It doesn't appear this has been noted but Holy Cross just keeps on winning and just advanced to the Patriot League semi-finals. If they can find a way to win the Patriot League championship, there is a good shot they could move into the RPI top 100. Another top 100 win can't hurt. Also a decent run by Charlotte in Conference USA would be great to make that worst loss look a little better. All small things at this point but if it moves us up to the 2 line, I'll take it!

Wow! Gavin Groninger! That's a name I haven't heard in a long time! Wonder what he's up to?
|1 week 8 hours ago||I've got two...||
The first two that come to mind for me are Maceo Baston and LaVell Blanchard. Maceo played in some years with a few decents teams but LaVell was always a trooper and reprensented the school and the team so well! Wish he would have acheived more success while at Michigan. I also tried so hard to root for Lester Abram. That guy might have had more injuries then any player EVER.
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||Great win!||
Yea, we all know that GRIII is a streaky player but hopefully this is the kind of game that really gets him going and just in time for the games that really matter! Go Glen Go!

I'm sure this has been mentioned 50 times by now but I think the most pleasure I get from the win today is that Keith Appling and Adrian Payne finished their career at MSU going 0-4 in Ann Arbor. John Beilein is the man!
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Favorite moment||
I gotta say, my favorite moment of the entire game was that 3 pointer by GRIII with about 3 mins left. That kid has had a rough few games but that shot really did put the game away. GO BLUE!!! FUCK OHIO!!!
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Unique perspective||
Just giving a different point of view here and didn't think I'd ever share anything like this on here but figure it's for good reason. I'm actually gay and this is in essense the same way I came out to my parents (althought, it was via a very short email and not a text). But let me share with you why I decided to go that route. I know my parents well and I knew that a face to face conversation or even over the phone wouldn't be right because my parents are the type that like to take some time, digest the topic, and then discuss it. My parents are now my #1 fans and we had a great conversation about it. I can't help but feel our relationship is better because of how it all went down. In the words of my Mom 'It took you 20 years to accept that you were gay and it took me a day. Thank you for giving me that time to take it all in'.

I got a pretty sweet Michigan cutting board made of wood from the state of Michigan. My Mom also made me some pretty awesome hand-painted Michigan coasters. Was a great Christmas, looking forward to relaxing with friends until I go back to work on the 2nd. Happy Holidays fellow MGoBloggers!
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Good points||
You do make some good points here. I'm honestly tempted to re-watch the game because it seemed to me, specifically in the 2nd half, everytime Walton was in the game, Arizona made a run and then Beilein was forced with putting Spike back in the game to settle things down. I think Walton will the PG of the future, just wish we didn't have to play him right now. Having him back up a guy like Trey or Darius for a year would be much better. Feel a lot like Derrick is getting thrown into the fire right now.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Honest question||
I seriously mean this as an honest question because I feel completely the opposite. Why would you play Walton instead of Spike? I feel like the drop off from Spike to Walton is just huge right now. Walton actually kind of reminds me of Caris last year. He just seems a step behind, that the game is too fast for him. Just curious if you saw something I didn't.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed||
Yea, that I gotta agree with that. He certainly could use some work defensively but man, seeing Walton "run" the offense is just, I don't even know the order, dysfunctional ? Again, I think Walton is improving and will contiune to improve but against the best, I just don't think he's ready yet.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||This ^^^^^^^||
Couldn't agree more! Walton will continue to improve but the drop off from Spike to Walton seems pretty substantial.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||One particularly intruging to me||
I, for one, would love to see 'Johnny Football' sent to the NFL with a loss. I'm taking Duke as my upset special. I also could see Bowling Green giving Pittsburgh a run for their money, for sure.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||I got you||
It's about a 3 hour drive from the Windy City to Toledo (ok, maybe a little more but whatever). I got your back man! lol
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Michigan man at Gameday||
Anybody else catch the guy with M gear in a few background shots behind Kirk? Nice to see some representation in SEC country!
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Lmao...I don't know why this||
Lmao...I don't know why this video is so damn funny to me. I've watched it entirely too many times now!

|31 weeks 2 days ago||Duffy's||
If you haven't been to Duffy's in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, make sure to stop there on your next trip here. Football games (and even basketball to a certain degree) are absolutly nuts! It should be on all M fan's bucket lists!
|49 weeks 2 days ago||Also a side note||
Just a side note on this, I ordered one last night and did the two day shipping and it actually shipped out today. It'll be here on Wednesday. I just didn't want to chance it not arriving before the weekend. MDen had some good selection. Hope that helps!
|49 weeks 3 days ago||Tons of tickets!||
A buddy of mine is down there and said that all the Kansas fans are in the area this morning trying to sell their tickets. I'd head towards the area of the stadium and see what you can get. I would venture to guess they wouldn't be asking for much either. Good luck!
|49 weeks 3 days ago||You know it's going to be a great game...||
You gotta know it's going to be a great game (and a Wolverine win) when we even got the most anti-Big Ten analyst (except maybe Charles Barkley) to pick Big Blue today. I was watchign SportsCenter this morning and caught that Bruce Pearl is picking us to beat Florida! Hail! Oh and Fuck Florida!
|50 weeks 5 days ago||Work pool||
Have a pool of about 45 of us at the office and I'm currently sitting pretty in 3rd place after tonight's games. 7 of my 8 elite 8 teams left. I sure could use those $450!
|50 weeks 6 days ago||Another good thing about time||
While I know that Saturday is one ticket, I have a feeling that more MSU fans would stay AFTER their game to boo us and be typical assholes but I have a good feeling that less will come before halftime of our game. But I have a good feeling that we'll play well regardless. Hail!
|51 weeks 8 hours ago||Somewhere||
Somewhere tonight, Commissioner Slive's is drinking himself to obvilion and I'm LOVING IT! SUCK IT, SEC!
|51 weeks 3 days ago||I'm with you||
I'm with you on that Don, except for the drop off from a 5 seed to a 6 seed this year is pretty steep. That's one of the bonuses this year with getting a 3 over a 4. I would much rather play UNLV, Pitt (again), VCU, or Notre Dame than Okie State, St, Louis, UCLA, or Arizona. Just sayin'...
|51 weeks 3 days ago||lol No Joke||
No kidding when I say that I had a dream (more of a nightmare) last night after one too many Jameson shots, that we drew Davidson in the first round. Auburn Hills would be great, drawing Davidson would not be so great. I'd be cool with New Mexico St. or Iona.
|51 weeks 4 days ago||My bad||
That was a typo on my part. KC and Auburn Hills are pretty close to the same distance but Auburn Hills is technically closer for Wisconsin. Will be interesting to see what the committee does with that.
|51 weeks 4 days ago||Not necessarily true||
There is just as likely a chance that Wisconsin ends up in Dayton or St. Louis. In fact, St. Louis is actually almost 100 miles closer to Madison than Auburn Hills. Just throwing that out there.
|51 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed!||
And dare I say the resemblance to the Tommy Amaker situation is kind of similar (granted we have much more basketball history, recruiting advantages, etc. than Northwestern). I'd love nothing more than to see Carmody go to a mid-major and tear that s#?@ up! He deserves it after this run in Evanston! Hail
|1 year 2 days ago||Don't know who that is...||
I'm usually pretty good pointing out Big Ten refs but I dunno who the f#?$ that little ass bald white dude is that keeps making all these awful calls but good lord! It's like these refs are trying to give this game to Indiana!! Even getting in the way of a ball going out of bounds! That guy was clearly just standing there like a f!?#ing idiot. I am not one to bitch about officiating but today is just awful...
