I'd actually say I've done admirably well in not commenting on these for this season. I honestly try to walk a line between offering insight and comments. Thankfully we will be leaving the books soon so my inputs will be worth less than a damn
If you want someting substantive here goes:
Friggin love that we got the full song of "The Dornishman's Wife" between this episode and one episode prior.
I actually had the first Sand Snake Scene that I didn't cringe at.
Tyrion + Dany = ??
Can anyone else give credit to Cersei this season? I wil admit they seemed to shoehorn in her "this is why you should like me" stuff for this episode with Tommen, but I still didn't dislike it.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Been a while since I posted on one of these||
but man was that a great episode. The showrunners have definitely gotten better season after season of focusing on specific areas of the world for longer chunks to help each story breathe a bit. That is so much preferred to the hopping around they had been doing in seasons 2 and even 3. If I may say so, Cersei's actress stole the show this episode.

There was a Louisville player who did the same thing first and posted it online and got positive feedback.
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||Guys,||
I'm going to make a bold predction. We will be better at the basketballs this season than this past season. Assuming everyone stays healthy *fingers crossed*.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||This whole season feels very strong so far||
Lots of good tidbits and it really does seem they are jumping around less and less and trying to give each scene more time to "breath" which I like.

I'll take it.
|5 weeks 10 hours ago||Smash it||
and bang it.
|5 weeks 10 hours ago||Thank you||
for reminding me this existed.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Yup, understand||
Just implying to your point that even though he's 2016, he may reclassify and be 2017 (which would save a scholly for 2016-2017) or not see the floor until 2017 after redshirt.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Something I did not realize||
is that he is only 16 right now. Being young for your class is indeed something Beilein has said he values, and may mean that he wanted to lock up a big for the 2017 class right now. Obviously that's coming at the cost of a scholarship spot, but I'm willing to wait untli next offseason before I pass judgment on taking this committment. Even if my reaction right now is that of a bit of surprise.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Man||
I'm trying to listen, but it's so painful to hear the hate on USMNT.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||The music||
chills and goosebumps
|8 weeks 4 days ago||I'd take||
the white jacket and then tell the rest to get off my lawn.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I profusely apologize||
for trying to pass on information I think might be useful to the board without giving away details of paywalled info.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Names were hinted at||
I would just rather not say. I think you or other readers can make an educated guess based on the players being recruited for 2015 and how different players may have met or not met expectations this season.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||No names have been given to my knowledge||
I would just look at what types of players they are recruiting and compare that against player performance.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Heard scuttlebutt||
that there is a chance of some non-NBA and non-graduation attrition for the team this offseason.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Onwenu||
"Onwenu's been a consistent presence on campus of late to the extent that Michigan has passed Ohio State as the favorite on his Crystal Ball"
He types after he was the "go ahead pick" on the crystal ball to Michigan :)
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Yup||
No idea personally if Gentry had any clue about this beforehand or not, or even if this would have affected his decision one way or the other if it did. Just offering an opinion on an admittedly sore topic.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Not blind-sided at all||
But if the transfer was in the works already, I don't see why it couldn't have been announced on or before Signing Day instead of the day after. Maybe it wasn't in the works for a while, but that was what I had been reading/hearing.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Agree 100% two different situations.||
And I'd say this is more akin to the UCLA DC loss than Michigan, but I'm just trying to look at all these things under the relatively same filter. Not just a Michigan-fan perspective. I tend to agree with what Sam has said about Mikey at this point that he was looking for something to happen at Michigan or OSU to point to and give a reason for his choice. The scrutiny of a flip that late in the process would be pretty high.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||I view it as part of the game in recruiting.||
Similar to signing 2 QBs to a class on Signing day and then announcing a QB transfer the very next day. Obviously not apples to apples, but worth noting that things like that happen across the country, not just at schools we don't like.
|16 weeks 18 hours ago||An excellent point||
So many people just say "6-4 PF!" and yes of course height is important for that position, but you can take advantage of mismatches on offense just like the other team can take advantage of mismatches against you. When you are offensively focused, it's a nice tool in your kit.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||The full roster being available||
for the biggest home game of the season does not mean that the full roster (minus LeVert and Wilson) will be "healthy" for the game. Still, if we can get two halves out of Doyle, that would be a great improvement.
EDIT: Allow me to add that I'm still irrationally optimistic about tomorrow's game.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||This team feels more like a typical Beilein team||
And I say that from his time at WVU. His system was always built around seniors knowing the system better than their opponents could scout it and using it to their advantage. We lost that the last few years because we had such good talent (a preferable situation), but we have a lot to look forward to with this team. I say that both for development the rest of this season and looking ahead a few seasons.
I have to agree, the rutgers game was somehow enjoyable when you unburden expectaions from the equation.
|19 weeks 6 hours ago||Would imply to me that Manning||
Did not get the job. And Zordich is a second DB coach.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||True statement.||
Even if Caris Leaves, if Michigan somehow lands Brown, that would be an immediate replacement impact player that would still lead to us likely having a better season.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||2014 was the year||
one year ago.
