What about Freeze, the Ole Miss HC? Is he not gd enough or not attainable?
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Who cares about Steele.||
Vegas has made us 34.5 point fav, a gd indication that we will steamroll App St. Rest easy guys.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||Can u imagine a basketball||
Can u imagine a basketball team with Igor Ibaka and MAAR? Awesome!
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Go Horford. Even when you||
Go Horford. Even when you play Michigan, I hope you score 30 points and 10 rebounds and yet Florida still lose to Michigan by 10 points.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||Great Name||
but not sure if he is an under the radar pick-up. Under the radar recruits are those who only blew up late in the year. MAAR has been around for a while. Even Rivals has a 2012 article about him being an up-and-coming star. Obviously he hasnt improved much over the past 2 years but if you have Wisconsin and Temple monitoring him two year ago, he cant be an under the radar pick-up. Having said that, we do need a good slasher and defender like MAAR. JB can spot talent and can coach but can he teach a kid how to shoot?
|27 weeks 5 days ago||A Michigan Man||
I wish Jon Horford all the best in his next destination. He has been a Michigan man through and through. His plays and quotes will be desperately missed irregardless. We don't know his reason for transfering. Could be for basketball but given what we know about him, I wouldnt be surprised if it is because of education or family. So please stop trashing the guy and thank him for his contributions in the past 4 years instead.

As a fan, without a doubt, a Final Four appearance trumps Big Ten tournament champ or Big Ten regular season champ. Certainly it is harder to be in Final Four than to be Big Ten regular season or tourney champ. There is only 4 Final Four banners to be won for the whole country but many regular conference championship banner. So Final Four banners trumps regular season championship or tournament championships.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||Last Year's Draft was really weak||
1) I do not think that any of last year's draftee are going to be perennial all-star or even a starter in a Championship team. You have the likes of Oladipo, Burke, MCW and THJ who are probably potential solid starter or back-up. The rest require at least 2-3 years to develop their game and are unlikely to perennial all-star.
2) While I wd hv prefered to have Burke + Cap Space rather than Jennings + KCP, I don't think it is going to hurt us that badly in the long run. I would have prefered to give Charlotte our draft pick last year and be done with it.
3) At the end of the day, what will really help the Pistons is a real bona-fide coach who can teach the team some defense. I believe someone like Thibs, Pops or even our old coach Rick Carlisle wd have delivered a better job coaching this team. Carlisle is doing a much better job with Monta Ellis than Pistons with Brandon Jennings. Dumars shd hv ponied up last year and hire Lionel Hollins or even tried their luck with Phil Jax. Those hires wd hv made Pistons a number 6-8 seeds in the week East but with the ability to coax good free agents to come to Detroit.

I will start caring once he picked Michigan. The season long drama of the high school player's top 3/5/7/10 is full of guesses and hypothesis. Wake me up when the football season starts...
|30 weeks 2 days ago||UM favoured by 1.5 points||
I think Michigan will be in trouble this weekend. Opening odds have Michigan favoured by only 1.5 points. That low point spread is an almost unheard of for a 2-seed over an 11-seed. I can see the public in general rushing to pick Michigan while the "experts" pick Tennesse. Where are you Bruce Pearl??? We want you back!!
|30 weeks 2 days ago||Shooting well will determine our fate this weekend||
The one and only factor determining victory or loss is our shooting. I don't think we will lose the game if we shoot better than 45%. In all our losses and close gamges, we have shot poorly. If we shoot poorly in this game and we can all book our tickets home.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||If it is a surprise and close||
If it is a surprise and close to home, my guess is OSU. While the Michigan offense might be ideally suited for him, Michigan has not produced many (we can argue that Mitch McGary and GRIII could have bolted last year) one-and-done NBA prospect under John Beilein. If that is what he wants, I think he wd go to OSU or Kentucky. But we can still hope he dons the maize and blue.
|31 weeks 1 day ago||I get the feeling that||
I get the feeling that recruits are watching how Michigan performed this season. A 7-5 season seem to doom Hoke&co and a change is in order. For a small class of 13, if not for last season's debacle, Iwd hv expected the likes of Wheatley Jr and Harris who are both long-time Michigan fan to commit.
|33 weeks 4 days ago||The one guy we hv to replace is||
Jordan Morgan who is a 5th yr senior. With Horford's foul tendency and McGary's bad back, Center might be our weakest position.
|33 weeks 5 days ago||Minnesota at home is probably the hardest||
Minny is still fighting to make the tournament while Illinois and Indy's bubbles have probably burst by the time we fight them.
|37 weeks 3 days ago||This. Is bad for us. Coupled||
This. Is bad for us. Coupled with Minnesota's loss to NW and Wisconsin's continued slide, will we still even have a Top 25 win away from home?
|37 weeks 6 days ago||3 years reek of cover up.||
3 years reek of cover up. Hoke's seat has just become hotter. The University needs to have a good explanation for this.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Didnt one of the computer||
Didnt one of the computer predictors give Michigan a 3.5% chance of going 3-0? Don't take rpiforecast.com too seriously. A team can easily go into an 0-3 hole. Ask Iowa St, Oregon, OSU and Wisconsin.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||MSU - 75% OSU - 20% UM -||
MSU - 75%
OSU - 20%
UM - 2.5%
FSU - 2.5%
I dont believe this is a Will Campbell situation. If he really prefers UM over MSU, he wd have taken the official with UM, not MSU. I understand him taking an official to FSU, Florida or LSU cos those are far away places. But MSU? A place he has visited many times?
|38 weeks 3 days ago||Apparently Vegas agreed with||
Apparently Vegas agreed with Kenpom and install MSU as 5.5 point fav despite Payne's and Dawson's injury. Real bad feeling that Harris and Appling are going to hv a big game tonight..
|39 weeks 1 day ago||Jordan Morgan is the Man!||
I don't know how he does it. Being benched so many times and yet continues to excel every time he's called upon. Plus he has already graduated from College of Engineering and working on a Master degree!
|39 weeks 3 days ago||Given that we got a 5 star RB||
Given that we got a 5 star RB in 2015 and the fav to get another 4 star, I wonder why the coaches do not focus on getting the best available Player regardless of position.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||Bye bye Scherzer||
Unless the Tigers are willing to shell out that kind of money for a pitcher, I think they will trade Max Scherzer...it makes no sense for them to lose him for nothing in free agency next year.
|40 weeks 10 hours ago||I do not know if I am being||
I do not know if I am being overly negative but it seems that our football recruits tend to fall in ranking along the way. This has happened in each of Hoke's past 3 classes. This is in direct contrast to John Beilein's basketball recruits who tend to move up in ranking with time. Could it be that while our coaches are good recruiters, their talent evaluation is lacking or is this simply a case of bad luck? Thus far, I have yet to see any of Hoke's recruit which projects to be an NFL first round pick.
|46 weeks 3 days ago||We have a chance||
if the defense is at full strength. We need James Ross and Desmond Morgan at 100%. Anyone knows if they are playing today?
|47 weeks 8 hours ago||If more than 3 top flight||
If more than 3 top flight recruits start to decommit, Hoke's departure might become a reality. At this point, I do not see how Borges get to keep his job...
|47 weeks 21 hours ago||What about Erick Smith from Glenville?||
Lattimore's mate from Glenville?
|47 weeks 1 day ago||Best news we have heard all||
Best news we have heard all week as UM football fan. Thank you Erik Swenson!
The timing couldn't be much better after an in-state recruit rejected us over ND and Mizzou and a Minny recruit flat out said no.
Perhaps this is an omen of things to come this week (beat OSU!)
|47 weeks 3 days ago||Defense is awesome. Offense||
Defense is awesome. Offense still sucks. Got lucky on the AJ Williams TD. Broken play, not scripted play. Pass protection is decent. Should just pass all day and run on draws.
