|1 day 12 hours ago||Here is yet another example...||
...of why Harbaugh is an excellent leader. A leader seeks to build people up, not tear them down.
|1 day 23 hours ago||It's amazing how often legal advice involves...||
...saying "let it go."
|1 day 23 hours ago||right||
There is a tremendous amount of domestic violence in the U.S. and in the world, but that doesn't mean Lewis did or did not do anything here. She has a story. He has a story. Seems like there is agreement that there was physical contact when he was in the closet. He may be guilty of assault. He may not be.

It was in the Legends Classic in NYC.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Yep||
Good point indeed.
|3 days 18 hours ago||I started laughing at the end of the game||
I thought Louisville was a play or two from running away with the game a couple of times. And it sometimes seemed like Michigan would never get a rebound or a clean look from three. I'm still not quite sure how they won. To borrow Coach Beilein's analogy, it's as if they were down a bunch of runs and then started hitting single after single after single. And then they were somehow ahead. And then they won, and Louisville and their slick coach and their team of giants were done.
Can anyone remember another team whose mental toughness grew this much in two months? They've gone from deflating to inspirational in something like six weeks.
|3 days 18 hours ago||We're rooting for you with all of that||
You're a good guy, Mr. King.

Two Big Ten regular season titles
I'll take it!
|3 days 20 hours ago||Go Blue!||
Das ist gut!!!!!!!!!
|3 days 20 hours ago||Apologies for my thread about the refs at halftime||
I thought a tech was in order.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Woohoo!!!!!||
I'm not sure how that happened! Sweet Sixteen!
|5 days 19 hours ago||That was bonkers and stressful and great||
Ok. State was seemingly carving Michigan up for a long time. And they never stopped owning the offensive glass. But then Michigan decided to hit an absurd number of threes. It seems like it shouldn't have worked, but here we are.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Michigan mostly wasn't shooting open threes||
And several of them were from pretty deep.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Holy hell||
|6 days 1 hour ago||Just FYI||
You're both going to hell.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Can't hurt but probably won't help much||
But I'm done worrying about it.
|1 week 1 hour ago||I'm not a fan of "they" either...||
...for the the same reason you aren't. But I wonder if I'm being a stick in the mud over something very small.
|1 week 1 hour ago||Is this person...||
...helping Michigan win and not cheating? If yes, then glad to have you and go Blue!
|1 week 18 hours ago||I'm not familiar with Michigan law, but...||
...generally speaking there are different leves of assault. I think I remember Adrian Arrington being charged with assault for wrestling the keys to his car out of his girlfriend's hands.
|1 week 18 hours ago||I have no idea about Michigan, but...||
...I remember there being at least one state in which an officer had to make an arrest if responding to a DV call.
|1 week 2 days ago||My takeaway:||
Michigan won the Big Ten Tournament!
|1 week 2 days ago||Michigan as one of the top ten teams in the country||
I don't know enough about the rest of college basketball to say whether that's true. But I was struck by the end of the tournament by the fact that there was nothing flukey or streaky about Michigan's win. This was not a group of plucky upstarts who skated by on good luck to an improbable victory. I think Michigan would win the tournament again if you replayed it. This team is just plain good. And they carry themselves like they know they're good.
|1 week 3 days ago||His improvement has been so fun to watch||
I'm not sure I've seen a player change his career arch so quickly. Mr. Walton has more in him than many of us realized.
|1 week 3 days ago||I'm not predicting anything, but...||
...I'm not concerned about the seeding. Winning today was no fluke. This team is ready to go toe-to-toe with all comers. !Queme los barcos!
|1 week 3 days ago||Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!||
|1 week 4 days ago||At this point...||
...the team has leaned on every starter (to varying degrees, admittedly) during a stretch of a tournament game. The fact that Michigan has multiple guys who can score 20+ points in a given game makes them tough to beat. And I love that none of the guys seems to let his offensive woes stop him from contributing in other ways. They seem to be very comfortable taking turns being the offensive star. They have become an admirably cohesive unit.
Also - this has been a blast!
|1 week 4 days ago||Walton!||
Turns out he was not interested in a disappointing senior season!
|1 week 5 days ago||The fact that this team can win with...||
...Walton and Wagner having the games they did makes me optimistic for the rest of the season. This team finally looks like the senior-led group they are. Their newfound mental toughness could allow them to do something special.

Muppets in March!
|1 week 5 days ago||That was great!||
The last three or so weeks have been a lot of fun!
