I don't care if it's weird so long as it works. Glad to see that Jay is as crazy as Jim is about Michigan football and competing.

Really outstanding stuff.
|1 week 8 hours ago||Doing the same thing after the tournament||
Netflix, MLB TV, then probably Sling (or hopefully Apple TV if they release that soon). BTN is the only thing that might bring me back in the Fall so that I can watch basketball.
If you get Internet through Comcast, can you use the ESPN apps?
|1 week 3 days ago||I think we go 90-72||
I guess I'm an optimist. Win the division by two or three games. Cespedes kiils in batting behind Miggy and in front of VMart. Defense is much improved and we look a lot more like the Royals.
Still worried about the bullpen, which probably leads to another early exit in the playoffs.

It's been pretty brutal. Syracuse went to the Final Four two years ago. I wouldn't be surprised if that's where Smart ends up (or at IU after Crean gets canned).

and Miami (No, not that Miami)
|2 weeks 2 days ago||It's a perfect fit for him||
There's little pressure and weaker competition and his wife can hold a high-powered job at Harvard Med and Mclean Hospital.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, I mean, upsets happen in a one off||
When I say coach at a high level, I mean competing against top flight coaches night in and night out, which he struggled to do. He had a losing record in both the Big East and Big Ten for a reason.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Tommy was a good guy, just can't coach at the highest level||
Never had good schemes and didn't develop players. I would have loved to see Daniel Horton or Blanchard play for Beilein.
Tommy Amaker might be the first D1 coach who kept his job because of his wife's importance to the university as a dean.

I've got Stella Cidre on the keg, and I'm adding a little Boodles Gin. Cider is an awesome replacement for tonic.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Very informative headline||
Especially when it has nothing to do with Dave Brandon.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I've never hated Walter more for what he did to Mike||
After watching that episode.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I completely agree||
Even as I was typing it I was irritated, but I think it's still the right call, especially with this young team that's given away so many games.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||What flaws are you specifically talking about?||
The guy is starting freshmen, playing walk-ons, and has 4 ot losses in the Big Ten after some bad luck. the two bad losses earlier in the season were inexplicable, but it seems pretty amazing that this team is a few bad breaks away from having a winning conference record.
I think the major flaw he has is the damn 2 foul rule. I guess you could say inbounding the ball, but that seems like a personnel thing.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||The commentators were wrong||
You can step on the line, you just can't step over it.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I think fouling is 50-50 there||
We have struggled to get the ball in and make free throws to clinch all season. You foul there we're most likely up 1 with 7 seconds left. We'd already almost lost the game in regulation because of inbounding it. Letting them shoot is a 30% chance and worst case tie. Fouling has worst case as a loss.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I'd bet almost all of them||
Watch a pregame warmup sometime. They take half court shots as if they're jumpers.

Then runs for the Senate seat that opens up in 2020 when Ed Markey retires.
|5 weeks 3 hours ago||When you go through them||
It become pretty apparent that the "new design" is just placing their logo on the helmet and having their team colors on the facemask.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Really sets us up for a run||
I thought I saw somewhere that the PSU game is in NYC. For as difficult as going to OSU and Wisconsin are, only playing them once is nice.

You post something filled with vulgar language that has next to nothing to do with Michigan?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||It's so weird that Michigan||
It's so weird that Michigan fans aren't as obsessed with basketball as they are football. Something as vapid as this would be hammered if it were football. We watched freshmen lose to upper classmen tonight on a team without their two best players. That Beilein will probably get a team that lost its 5 best players with little notice to the NIT is remarkable.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||LOL||
great argument. Ok, fine, Beilein only lost 6 of his top 7. Great take.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I can't believe Beiliein recruits spot up bigs like Doyle||
and Horford. Yes, GR3 is totally reaping the rewards for not staying and being the best player on our team by sitting most of the NBA season. What "project kid" would you rather not have? Chatman? one of the top recruits and "athletic bigs" we supposedly never recruit?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Absurd||
Fr. Stauskas did nothing like fr. MAAR has done. There was never a game where he was taking over our scoring (the Florida game was him knocking down wide open threes from Burke and Mcgary). Secondly, you're missing the fact Dawkins is coming off the bench for Robinson next year and that Irvin is basically THJ if THJ had been the best player on the team, which he never was.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Coach K is 68||
Boeheim is 70.
If Beilein coaches to 2020 He's the longest tenured coach in Michigan history. What exactly do you want from him to "build a program"? Michigan is without two of their best 3 players, in a down year that saw 3 players leave, two who shouldn't have left, and still competing against the top. If anthing, this season is a testament to the program he's built.
