Always thought Ash was close to making impact here too. He was RR recruit right?

Sadly I knew there'd be complaining about a road loss to team that inexplicably shot lights out at strange times. M played quite well especially defensively. Watch again Iowa hit tons of very contested shots.
Offensively we struggled at times sure and oddly had DJ take two key 3s.
We are not that talented. We are playing well and improving.
86 pts is due to tempo and ot and lots of unwarranted trips to stripe.
I feel like so many blast beilein here who first watched M hoops in spring 2012.

simply because of the length of time (Outback) and the simplicity of the sponsor name (florida citrus growers), I'm assuming.
Citrus was actually known as the Tangerine for like 35 years before being sponsored as the Citrus Bowl and then adopting the name later (a real coup for the Floriday Citrus Growers).
Citrus II (or Tangerine) is really Tangerine II, right? The former Blockbuster.

who has them as a major client, I only WISH we had the budget to sponsor a bowl game.
Even though I hate sponsored bowl games and participate in using only trad names.
That Maytag logo is hilariously old (there have been two redesigns since the "worms"). Enjoyed seeing how it still comes up in searches as "the" logo.

Even LSA is that way - the critical thinking I gained in history, communications etc have far surpassed what I've seen in the work world even from those with more advanced degrees. Michigan difference.

Amen. My son is in 8th grade and wants to go so bad. I told him my 3.8 (no AP) and 28 ACT probably wouldn't be enough today. I even got in 3 years straight and eventually transferred in from gvsu. He's already stressing about but I told him he can do it but will really have to work at it, and I'll be proud even if he doesn't reach that goal.

I'd assume because people there have noses. Now as to why it stinks, you've all covered that quite well.

My son is 2003 born and is such a diehard fan. I respect him more than myself at that age. I was enjoying an NC in hoops and a Rose Bowl win and the end of Bos run. He's had late Lloyd, The Horror (which he attended), richrod, hoke fools gold, Brandon etc). He did have a title game appearance on his birthday but even that ended in disappointment. We've beaten OSU 2x in his life. He's in 8th grade. Sigh.

yanked because the big money starts going to WMU program & Fleck.
It's been a fear from those in the know in the area. I don't agree with it but there's a fear that people getting football crazy pulls long-term investment from things like KP.

Good to see you back in the honolulu blue and silver, Joique.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||"NO" works for me||
Come on, man. My kids know the deal. No souvenirs or food or snacks at the stadium/arena unless we smuggle them in. I tend to get tickets to some of the "free soda/hot dog" games anyway though at the kids' request. I always park for free on the streets.
I can attend a Michigan basketball game for usually either $75 or $125 depending on the opponent.
The cost isn't the issue for me, it's the time (I live 2 hours away). I love going on weekends.
Weeknight games need the more local support. Even the great teams of 12-13 weren't always fully supported in November on a Wednesday. Sad, but true.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Truthfully much of west||
Truthfully much of west Michigan is bandwagon. Used to be 70/30 M but has been more like 60/40 S lately - but swinging back. Lots of "I like both" in GR area
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Did refs blow the call against IU?||
Screen pass to Ty Isaac against the Hoosiers with a similar type of block in the back call downfield. Refs gave M the first down after marking off 15 yards from spot of foul.
I assumed that was the right call. Against OSU that was my reaction (like Harbaugh's) that based on last week, this should be a first down albeit farther back.
Of course, B1G refs getting things wrong is more normalized now. *sigh*

|9 weeks 2 days ago||Will conference standings ever really matter?||
I will continue to pound this point home. No one (including Michigan) should be eligible for the playoff if they cannot win their own division. Why?
1. Skipping a chance/opportunity to play another top 10-15 opponent in a CCG. While that may improve top 4 standing, it also has the chance to be a loss and dropping you out. A team has an X% chance of losing if they win their division. If they are second in division, they have a 0% chance of losing the CCG and falling out of top 4.
2. Every team has a chance to win their division at the start of the year. If you cannot complete task one, you shouldn't get to skip task two (win conference) and go directly to task three (make playoff).
3. Is there a scenario where the 4th best team is clearly a non-division winner? Perhaps. But given the issues with #1, it's not assured that team would be in that spot should they have had to play another top team in a CCG.
Compare an 11-1 OSU team which finished 2nd in its division with an 11-2 PSU team that won its division and conference and beat OSU. Shouldn't the Nittany Lions get that shot over OSU?
Or had we not lost to Iowa and we'd be 11-1 after a loss to OSU (for example), they'd be 11-1 going into the CCG and lost to Wisconsin. Who gets in? 11-1 Michigan or 11-2 Wisconsin? We beat them so we should go right? No way. We didn't have to face Wisconsin in the CCG.
Not sure if I'm making my point but I am adamant about this. Tell me how I'm wrong.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Which sucks bc they won't||
Which sucks bc they won't have to put their record on line by playing ccg. It's advantageous to not win division. Poor system if that's the case
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Pretty harsh on Elliott there kiddo||
Yes, he struggled at WMU but that's a bit harsh for a guy who has done a ton for my community over the last decade plus.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Non-conference winners||
I'm adamant about this and even outside of the current situation.
No non-division winner should ever be allowed in the CFP. The reason? They are essentially getting a BYE in the CCG week. Just because a team finished ahead of a non-division winner, they not only get the chance to win the conference, but also have to put their record on the line against a good opponent.
It's actually advantageous for OSU NOT to make the CCG in terms of its CFP chances. That's jacked up.
Normally, I'd make this a blanket statement about non-conference winners too but I can see a situation where a 0-loss team gets its first loss in the CCG and still remains one of the top 4 teams in the nation.
However, a team that doesn't win its own division AND doesn't have the division winner already in the top 4 does not deserve to go simply because it misses an opportunity to either further its case with a win or have to put its spot in the final 4 on the line by playing a quality opponent.
