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.

Mexico vs Portugal (after all..their matches typically determine which nation is the greatest on earth)

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.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||If Gardner eliminates the||
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.

Aaron Hernandez directs Tebow to throw a bullet pass into the back of an amateur football players head?
|38 weeks 1 day ago||If one person would pay more||
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.

I work right by Gibneys. I'll be there for lunch on Monday if at all possible
|48 weeks 4 days 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.

But most of us have jobs to go to and far less time to spend voting. Call it the Curse of the Michigan Difference

|1 year 3 weeks ago||So many of our drives seem to||
So many of our drives seem to end in blocked shots, because it doesn't look like we go up strong. Maybe it's fear of drawing a charge. We go up, then when the help defender comes, we try to go up and under and end up with an easy shot to block because it's released down low, or we fade away from the basket and end up with a fadeaway jumper rather than a layup attempt.
We also don't seem to be very good at dishing the ball in the lane at the end of drives when the help defender leaves his man. It just isn't a strong point for our guards.
I'd rather see McGary develop a post game where he can create offensive chances for himself, and create a threat of an inside/outside game to create open looks for the shooters. We take a lot of slightly contested perimeter shots because our guards are good enough to create some space with their ballhandling, but ball movement in terms of crisp passing seems to be lacking overall.
