My first game was the 1979 game against Wisconsin. I was five and remember very little. My parents, who had season tickets up through the 1975 season wanted to take me so they went down on a whim, bought some tickets there, and went to the game. It was a blowout as Michigan won 54-0 (had to look it up).
The game that stands out for me the most was the 1991 game against Purdue. Not that it was a great game or anything, but my coach got us recruiting tickets (he knew someone in the program and took a couple of us down for each game). I got to be recruited by Michigan for a game. It was awesome. We toured the facilities, got to go out on the field, had then assistant coach Lloyd Carr come in and talk to us. I remember being in the tunnel with the Purdue players!. The best was being anble to see two of my favorite players, Tyrone Wheatley and Desmond play live. Seats on the 50 yard line. Michigan won big (42-0). It was a hell of a day!

I believe that JB will play the best lineup for the program. You seem not to think that, correct?
|2 years 18 weeks ago||I am not following you.||
So are saying Brunson and Coleman potential one and dones or are they 3-4 year players? Or are you saying they are one and done talents that will be here for 3 - 4 years? Are you saying they will be starters or role players/depth. If you are saying they will start from day 1, then how are you saying they will be 3-4 year players? Most players that start from day one in an established program aren't 3-4 year players. Or are you saying that they aren't good enough for early entry to The NBA? If they aren't, then can't we find someone else at their talent level? Please clarify.

Last time I trust Wikipedia over my own memory. They had under JB's page UM going to the 2nd round in 2012.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Yet, that's what you are||
Yet, that's what you are saying Brunson doesn't want. In your arguement, Duke and Kansas would never have gotten Brunson in their championship years because their role layers were highy recruited? So you want us to recruit depth and role players like bluebloods (everybody is highly ranked), but always have openings and no depth in case highly ranked want a clear path to the starting job.
I understand now.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Yet both Kansas and Duke have||
Yet both Kansas and Duke have not based their blueblood status on one and done's. Most of their championships have come from great players surrounded by great role players.

His success is unsustained? In his 12 years coaching major D1 basketball, Beilein has been to the NCAA Tourney 7 times, never losing in the first round. He took BB power WVU to both the Sweet 16 and the Elite 8 in consecutive years. He has led UM to the sweet 16 in just under half (3) of his seven years as coach. He knows what he is doing.

Here is a a snippet from Pro Football Talk (from Tuesday)
Both the Detroit News and Detroit Free Presshave stories today suggesting not only that Whisenhunt could be the next coach, but even that the Lions may have already reached out to Whisenhunt, the former Cardinals head coach and current Chargers offensive coordinator.

His ego is the biggest reason. Can he turn down the chance to coach in one of the most talent rich states for an unbelievable NC with three schools?
