|18 weeks 6 days ago||The hand wringing over the no||
The hand wringing over the no visits if you're committed stems from the associated "we're pulling your offer, too" that appeared to be the case until David Dawson - who was an extreme case. If a commit can really get back into the class if there's still interest on both sides, then I don't see an issue. But if you almost always pull the offer after a decommit, well, you might miss out on some people. Certainly within the staff's right and I see their point, but I think that's where some people are in disagreement.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||I disagree. Setting aside||
I disagree. Setting aside that it's never going to happen, the only way these policies stop or are reduced is when it affects the bottom line. Michigan's still going to play football if a game doesn't sell out, so I don't see why it's such a terrible thing to say.

You're onto something here. The AD just put this into a synergy brainstorm meeting agenda. They'll "rent" you officially licensed U of M apparel for just $100 a season.

This is some bullshit. At first I thought the satire of the post was over the top. But after checking the mgoblue.com page with the seat cushions prohibition bolded and the cushy banner ad for paying for the privilege of a cushion just to the right, I think it’s spot on. The money grab is so transparent that it’s beyond insulting that they do this under the guise of “safety.”
No purses burned my wife and I for the ND under the lights game. We had to stuff all of the contents in our pockets because unlike every other stadium in the country, security can’t be bothered to inspect it. My fault in the end because I did not verify this beforehand, but that was a new one for me.
As a non-season ticket holder, I’m sure I’ll still go to games whenever I have the chance. I'll deal with these shitty policies because I only have so many opportunities to see Michigan Football. But, I hope that those most affected by these policies - season and frequent ticket holders - let the AD know that these slights do not go unnoticed. Sad.

Has anyone seen this game on Big Ten Network's Classic Games? I remember listening to that game on radio because it wasn't on TV in my area (remember those days) and I've been looking for a replay of it lately.
Biakbatuka is still one of my favorites of all time and a good portion of that is due to that unstoppable game.

Wow, thanks for ruining my Thursday. Colorado game might be my personally watched #1. I didn't know that a remote could crack the glass of a tube TV until then.

Heiko, this is a testament to your professionalism and work. It takes some time to get this level of access. Well done!
|30 weeks 4 days ago||OSU game at night||
While I'm vehemently against moving The Game away from the last weekend of the regular season, I don't have too many qualms with playing around with the time. The major negative is that nighttime at the end of November is likely to be damn cold. But I don't think it destroys any pagentry of the game to move the time of day around. The ND night game has proven that it can enhance the atmosphere.

I'm pretty much a VT hater, but I've been to a game or two at Lane stadium and it's a legit college football experience.

#2 E-literate city sounds a lot less impressive if you say it out loud.
|35 weeks 6 days ago||So, Brian, what is your take||
So, Brian, what is your take on Beilein sitting Burke in the first half? You've long railed against this Beilein policy, but I'm not hearing a lot of dissent around these parts this time. Obviously that's because he ended with four fouls so it turned out to be the right decision. If he finishes with two fouls, the criticism gets louder, but unfortunately Beilein hasn't figured out how to peer into the future.
I agree with Beilein sitting guys based on this policy, because all minutes in a game are not of equal importance. Despite Albrecht going crazy, I would rather have Burke at the end than an extra 12 minutes in the first half.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||Your feet do not have to be||
Your feet do not have to be set to take a charge. Yes, that's usually a determining factor, but it's not a rule. Legal guarding position is all it takes. Obviously we're biased around these parts, but I thought he laid claim to the area before the defender and took it in the chest. I suppose I could see it going the other way but I think 9 times out of 10 the ref makes a charge call there.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||If they want to co complain||
If they want to complain about a call, I would pick the one on Carter-Williams where Hardaway gives him the chicken wing but it's called a block. Whatever though, it's water under the bridge and Syracuse had their opportunities at the end. One call doesn't make the game and if the shoe was on the other foot, I would begrudgingly admit that.

Agree to disagree then?
|36 weeks 4 days ago||A more eloquent reply than||
A more eloquent reply than mine. And I reiterate your stance that this isn't the place to argue about the Fab Five. But they ARE a part of Michigan history for good and for bad.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||I disagree. Obviously there's||
I disagree. Obviously there's a lot more to this discussion, but denying the symbolizism of this team making it to the final four 20 years after the fab five is ignoring the historical significance. I don't want it to dominate the discussion - and I don't think it has - but it's a part of the story.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||Not sure this so much bodes||
Not sure this so much bodes well for Ross as it bodes poorly for Gibbs. But, I'll still take it.

How is Bacari going to call out Heavy D (R.I.P.) like that?

My guess is a doctor confirmed an ACL tear, so yeah, a meltdown is order.

And in my state, this wouldn't have been an issue (well, maybe the qty.) so long as I was operating the vehicle sober.

Fair enough for off the court reasons, but I loved watching him play. That man could shoot the rock.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||I don't get the grumbling and||
I don't get the grumbling and I think Brian doesn't give Purdue enough credit. It's a road win against a team that just handled UW at the Kohl Center -- a tall task indeed. Terone Johnson is a stud and Purdue always plays good defense. They've obviously gotten much better as the season progressed. That's a top-tier Big Ten team next year with the same roster.
Sure, we could have played better, but you can say that for every game you play in conference.
|42 weeks 5 days ago||It does look like Zeller||
It does look like Zeller flexes his arm as the motion occurs, which would indicate that he initiated said motion. Still speculation, but I think it's fair to say that you can't 100% put this on Nix.
Generally, I side with the team not coached by Tom Creen.
In other news, I just wasted 2 minutes of my life.

Unless one of those coaches was Matta, they all better go back to the drawing board.

Are you using R to analyze this data? The graphs look like R outputs. Just curious because I'm taking an R Data Analysis class on Coursera right now.

Why does MGoBlue still post all their videos at 360p. Let's get some HD up in here!

Good write up as usual. The loss doesn't hurt as much as closing a chapter on Michigan's non-pro style offense experiment and saying goodbye to Denard.
Also, I'm suprised there was no mention of Denard becoming the all-time NCAA QB rushing leader - passing Pat White.
P.S. Those uniforms were ridiculous. I encourage everyone to provide feedback to the athletic department if you agree. In the end $ are their analytics, but negative feedback probably registers too as it ends up hurting the bottom line eventually.

Not that we're in danger of losing any of those guys to MSU, but it pains me that Steve Mariucci is coaching since he's good friends with Tom Izzo.
