the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

Here is a wild guess: He will never be full time QB and does more Wild Cat/spread sets in the NFL. It's out there, but I just have a feeling.

"World class"? Wow, so throwing people into the stands and shrugging your shoulders like it was nothing is world class basketball? Ok then...how many championship did those "world class" teams win?

Singletary's position is what they are referring to there. He frankly makes the most of the early contact before the other coaches getting involved. He gages interest, sends literature, sets up unofficials, etc.

Just for those who will forget what I am about to write...just so there is no misconceptions about where Blacksburg, VA location in the mid-Atlantic. It is no, and I mean no where near DC (5hrs) Richmond (2hrs) or Norfolk(4hrs). You would be better off getting a flight to Knoxville,TN, renting a car and driving up 81. Blacksburg has a very small regional airport and really won't accommodate anything more than a private plane situation.

I would assert that this thread, like many others before it, show how good these coaches really are. Meaning, we had a major, and I mean major talent deficiency the last two seasons and did an amazing job. Less-than-star-less teams and solid no name contributors won us 19 games.

I beg your pardon, it is not "your school". The alumni have done way more than you. It is our school. You own nothing. It is the University's, state's, students', alumni and communities'. Not just the students.

Young padawan, the University of Michigan has been in existence for how many years? How many years have we fielded a football team? How many SS problems have there been in the past with regards to half empty sections?

You clearly haven't been in section two very often since I have the last two years. The older crowd of "down in front" is going away if not shunned for saying the last couple years. Air Force, NW and Iowa games, people where standing, clapping, and cheering a lot. Section 23-25 is pretty tame, but I sat in 24 for MSU and everyone was into that game.

That's pretty typical for HBO and Showtime series, so that people get hooked in with little bits versus big gulps. Usually the last four to six epis rock it out. They haven't written themselves into a corner yet, and there are sooooso many places to go for a non-book reader watcher person.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Oh my goodness, you damn||
Oh my goodness, you damn college kids bug me big time. First, you can't play devils advocate after you state that you act complicity in the opposite way. Your argument is nullified. Secondly, this issue is no longer a "fair" question. If the AD studies the issue, and evidence points to on average or in one game upwards or equal to 5400 students were not showing up by kickoff or at all, this now becomes a "equitable" situation. Simply, the student sections becomes a single "entity" and an equitable policy is applied.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Well no shit Sherlock! That||
Well no shit Sherlock! That is because people want tickets to the game and the student section uses up valuable prime real estate. Those 5400 empty seats could be sold at a small discount and make the AD and fans pretty damn happy. That's called a win win situation, versus a lose lose which our current method is providing. Bring on GA and eventually restricting it, if people don't get their priorities straight. Get your head out of your butt!

As a grumpy 33 year old who is an alum, who also had student season tickets that were never that great, I missed two kickoffs. What has happened in the SS over the last few years is a shameful and disheartening occurrence. I am of the mind that we all will see the SS decrease. the AD owes the students nothing more than a chance to buy discounted tickets, and that might go away as well. So many of this generation doesn't get how special it is to have tickets, and don't care about the team. Just like most things in life, it is the few that ruin it for everyone.

We are so close, it is an extension of giddiness from bball. People need to realize we are gonna be good for a long time if we have this kind of talent who is coached and developed properly consistently.

How many irrelevant depth charts will Mr. Yost post on here. Is typing names that will change ten time over in the next six months thought provoking or solid analysis? Is it interesting? Is this is a waste of time and board space?
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Not that bad||
Well, I am 33, and been through worse frankly in terms of my UofM fandom and pro sports teams I follow. This is an easy tough loss to get over, since it was such a great ride and pleasure watching these young men come together and do something they probably shouldn't of done. Having said that, they were such a dangerous team to play in the tourney, and people realize now that with this staff, quality players, UofM is back in the conversation. Get there is so hard, and to do it consistently is nearly impossible. So when we get here, don't be afarid to be proud of the accomplishment. Man, what a ride -- and I don't even really enjoy baseket ball that much!
This always happens, but really the only thing irking me is the cock roaches from other BIG schools or national rabble rouser who are trying to disparage this team. I don't mind a little ribbing, but don't bring up the Fab Five, our sanctions or how we got "lucky". I had one boob who was trying to be funny and say that all our "good" players were ex-Pudue recruits, NW IN players, and that is the only reason we were good. Not only does this person not make a lick of sense, but he had to bring up the negative issues we dealt with 10-15 years ago as a "we got what we deserved" straw-man arguement, as if it had anything to do with this team or staff. I don't suffer fools well, so I slammed him down pretty fast. It is what it is. People are inheritently insecure about thier underpreforming sports teams.
I say be gracious in defeat, be proud of what happend. It is one thing to lose, it is another to act like a loser. Quite blamming anyone but ourselves. We lost. It is ok. If things shake out for us this off-season, we could be really good next year. It would be great to make runs like this consistently.

No offense to Brian, but I will take this one: sitting Burke was our only option. If he gets number three with 5:00 left in the first and then fouls out with 2:00 in the game, ok fing then what? What is your solution? Duh, we are in a worse position. Basically, a cold shooting Hardaway and gased Albrecht? Staukas, who apparently left at half time to get some ice cream. Levert? Oh my begeebies, Levert!! He wasn't the answer, if anything a bigger problem Monday.
