That is the problem. You just favorably compared the poor play in Utah's game to other poor performances by the team. The performance against Utah was listless and uninspired, and that has become a far too regular occurrence. That it was not the worst we've endured under this leadership is damning.
A game like Utah won't sink a coach if that is the worst his team has ever performed and it appears to be an abberation. Continually falling short of even rapidly diminished expectations is the harbinger of doom. Losing to Utah in this fashion surprised too few people and it is the culmination of it all, and the confirmation that the Notre Dame game was not an isolated incident, that has caused the reaction we are seeing on the board lately.

we basically had identical shooting percentage regardless of shot type.
2pt - 53.2%
3pt - 52.2%
FT - 52.6%

To be fair to the rest of them, Morgan is the only guy on the team who actually has a chest.

Surely someone in the MGoBlog readership has a current position open for a research doctor. Simply incorporate the press conference transcription and questioning requirements into the position. Heiko will be the most qualified applicant and will certainly get the job.

The problem isn't the other team making threes, it's how open the shots they take are. Can't complain when they make wide open looks.

College Basketball has such a short season though. I'd be amazed if he returned to full speed before the season ends, and if he can't get back to full speed it's probably not worth it to come back at all.

I was in the gridlock on I-75 last night for 12 hours, didn't make it home yesterday. Abandoned my car when the exit I was trying to take had a 6 car pileup. Walked the rest of the way to my mom's house. From work to my mom's house was 6 miles. Had I tried to make it the additional 6 miles to my own house, I'd have been stuck until around noon today.
The real issue was not so much the weather, but that every school, business, govt entity all shut down at the same time, and the mass exodus of people vastly exceeded the capacity of the roads. Couple that with inevitable accidents from cars spinning out and otherwise not knowing how to drive in ice and snow, and we had a logjam that was so dense none of the emergency vehicles were able to navigate through to respond and keep the lanes clear.
The result was an unmitigated disaster, but the weather was more of a catalyst than the primary cause.

Damn. This is the first time it occured to me that if Brian didn't make a living off MGoBlog, he'd probably stop blogging about Michigan football. Also the first time that I've ever not been jealous of Brian's success at his chosen line of work.

If I were HC, I would have sat Mattison down during the bye week and had him study the Michigan offense as if he was going to have a game against Michigan next week....and then have him explain to Borges all the ways the offense is failing and tipping plays.
Maybe they did do that and it still didn't help

Saying we will be if Devin stops killing us with turnovers. I'm not saying THAT will happen though, just hoping.

If Gardner eliminates the turnovers we are fine. The only reason our last three games were close is because of those bad decisions and some bad bounces. Settle Devin down in the bye week and we roll.

If one person would pay more in tuition (i.e. out of state vs in state) then I'd say the two candidates are not near-identical as far as the admissions criteria goes.
I think legacy only comes into play when there is nothing else discernably different between two candidates.

I think legacy status just breaks a tie between otherwise near-identical candidates.

100% approve. My 2 year old daughter sings the Michigan fight song already, and yells Go Blue whenever she sees any sports on TV.

Recycling is basically garbage. Were you wearing gloves? I wouldn't want someone wiping their garbage hands on me either.

How about a kickstarter to get Trey Burke to come back next year. He can have the money when he graduates.

|1 year 25 weeks ago||Burke is our point guard,||
Burke is our point guard, it's his job to create shots for his teammates, especially if they can't create their own. Criticizing the other players' inability to create shots is meaningless if you can't stop the point guard from creating shots for them.
What a weird interview.
