"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

|1 day 16 hours ago||I was expecting this to be a new diary by Bill Martin||
Sounds like a fun trip, thanks for sharing.
|3 days 15 hours ago||My wife showed me the video last night||
Super awesome. Loved the final climb, echo SuperStringer's comments.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Go for it||
There is an element of the OSU fanbase that feels a compulsion or even a sense of duty to be rude to Michigan fans. It shouldn't surprise you that this compulsion grows stronger once they have tucked into a few Budweisers. I wore my maize and blue HAIL shirt around downtown Cleveland last Saturday. The score: one high five, two hecklers (one drunk started the "O H" cheer, one who asked my wife what my problem was), and one insurance adjuster who thought it was about a hail storm. My wife didn't attend UM but she takes more offense at the heckling than I do. The worst so far was a policeman working crowd control at a county fair last summer who said out loud that it would be okay if the horse-drawn carriages ran over my 6yo daughter because she was wearing a Michigan shirt. Mrs. EE hasn't gotten over that one yet. At a golf tourney, give any detractors your best smile and marvel at how easy it is to get under Buckeye fans' skin.

Pig sooooeeeey! Does he have eyes anymore? Zellweger-esque.

|5 days 16 hours ago||Well yeah, but the longer this thread gets||
the greater the likelihood that someone paints this site with the same brush.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Quite predictable that both sides in the fight blame the other||
In fact, I did predict that when I heard about it earlier this afternoon. Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with people? I know the US shot down an Iranian passenger plane in the Gulf back in the 80s, but at least the combatants or would-be combatants in that region were using planes for something. Is there any element of air war in the Ukraine fight, especially as large as an airliner that travels at that altitude?

And it reflects almost exactly the conversation I had with my best friend from high school when we saw eachother at Christmas after our first terms at Michigan and Ohio State.
He: At my orientation, my RA told three Michigan jokes.
I: That's interesting, I didn't hear my RA mention Ohio State in four months.
That was a different era, as Gordon Gee's greatest 13-13 win took place that autumn after four straight UM wins, but I think that supports the larger reality: saying nasty stuff about Michigan is deeply ingrained in the OSU fan mentality, regardless of the current state of the rivalry. Dicks will be dicks. Sure would be nice to get a win though.
|6 days 14 hours ago||I misread the original post||
thinking that Memphis was hiring three new assistants, each of whom is a father of a future recruit. I was impressed at their enterprise. The actual story is no big deal imho. Is it really that different from Penn State hiring Larry Johnson?

Hey, different strokes for different folks.
|6 days 19 hours ago||I had a high school classmate with a .98 ERA||
Helped get our team to the state semifinals. One really good pitcher can take a team pretty far. This story is like Randy Moss and Jason Williams without all the legal trouble.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Well, it's not "the end" yet||
So until then, there can be more than one.

Take him outside and shoot him, I say.

Great show. Of course it was the substitute lead singer (great voice and and a Scarlett Johanssen lookalike) so I've never seen the usual lineup.
|1 week 1 day ago||UTL 2 was on my birthday||
The Oklahoma game may be on my 51st or 52nd birthday. My second grader may be a UM freshman or sophomore if we can afford it. I have to go cry now.
|1 week 1 day ago||Well, Darling Nik can now afford one of these||
|1 week 1 day ago||I was so checked out of the 2008 season by that point||
that I didn't realize or remember that Feagin ever appeared in a game. I arrived in Aruba the day of the Minn game and flew home the day after the NW game, and that was before I had a smartphone so I was oblivious. Plus I chose going to see the Twilight movie with my wife instead of watching the OSU game (nobody had offered me a free root canal that day) so I didn't watch any of the three games Feagin played. It sure nice that Michigan is back to winning all the time again.
|1 week 1 day ago||"Concerns were also raised"||
"Following University President-elect Mark Schlissel’s selection in January, concerns were also raised on secrecy specifically in the presidential search process. All Michigan public universities have been allowed to conduct presidential searches in private as of a 1999 Michigan Supreme Court decision."
Why the passive voice? Who raised the concerns? It's too bad the Daily doesn't have an ace journalism school like MSU's at its disposal.
For good or bad, this paragraph is a far cry from the "Duderstadt is Illegal!" protests in 1988 that the Daily promoted with front page exhortations to the student body.
FWIW I am amused by people who get shirty about job searches that are conducted out of the public eye. That's how recruitment works for nearly everybody except pro athletes.
|1 week 4 days ago||The OSU games are too high-stress for me||
I live in Ohio so we simply must win that one. I've only attended two losses to OSU: 2001 and 2005, which sucked.
2002 Michigan State was good. The margin was almost enough.
I watched UTL 1.0 from my living room. It was awesome and I don't think I could have handled the strain in person. The two late Michigan TDs were at the far end from my usual seat, so that wouldn't have helped.
UTL 2 was on my birthday, a beautiful evening, and following some pregame jitters I was never really worried that we were going to lose. Plus: chicken dance.
|1 week 4 days ago||Caris has a 7'1" wingspan?||
Caris in many ways is the most Beilein recruit...didn't turn 18 until after he arrived on campus, underdeveloped physically but highly skilled, successful high school player (state champ as Sr) but not highly recruited, 40% 3pt shooter, etc. I guess this staff really does like guys with long arms. Having a wingspan 3" more than your height is notable. I don't think I've ever heard of a guy with a 7" differential.
|1 week 4 days ago||Caris LeVert and Derrick Green play for Michigan||
But Larry Blue played for Iowa and Marquis Maze for Alabama. Counterpoint: Michael Redd did play for OSU.
|1 week 4 days ago||Well, that's how Oregon controls the game||
Tearing off huge chunks of yardage almost at will and scoring a bunch of points. They do on the gridiron what Loyola Marymount did to us on the court. Try and keep up.

Would that make their offense a Bizarre Love Triangle?

If they would throw in Entree Plus for life, that would really be something.
