|4 weeks 1 day ago||There should be a 20 or 25||
There should be a 20 or 25 run rule. The game stops even if it is in the middle of the game. I saw a high school team start bunting in the bottom of the second inning up by 20 runs a few years ago. Players should not have to be intentionally trying to get out, but that was the case.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||my gut says he is done for the regular season||
He may get some carries or snaps, but I don't think he is going to get to play. I really, really hope I am wrong, but I also enjoy watching Devin play too.
Hoke isn't tipping his hand and we will find out soon enough. It does seem odd that this would keep him out for a long time.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||excited to get Countess back next year||
I had forgotten about him being out. If he fully recovers, he will give us a huge boost in the secondary.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||great picture||
That is a really, really cool picture. I am so excited about Robinson and Hardaway keeps improving. It is a great time to be a Michigan fan.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||Wow!!!||
I could not be more excited about this team. We play and move so well. Our spacing is great and the talent is so fun to watch. I love how Stauskus and Spike throw passes with both hands with ease. Robinson is an absolute freak athlete and is very fun to watch. Hardaway seems relaxed and able to work within the confines of the team. Burke is just so smooth and looks NBA ready right now.
I can't get over how much I like watching every guy on this team. I used to not like watching Horford, but I think he has improved a ton and enjoy seeing him in the rotation. Stauskus is going to be starting soon (if he didn't tonight...missed the beginning) and it is clear he has to play big minutes. I think Spike would be fine to take over for Trey if he has an NBA type of year. If not, he is a great backup pg.
It is great to be a Michigan Wolverine!!!
|26 weeks 5 days ago||prediction||
Michigan 85-59 is my prediction. I really enjoy watching this team play. Burke's Eurostep was incredible. Very few players eurostep back to their weak hand and he made it look sooo easy.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||wow||
That really is hard to believe a guy could try that hard not to compete. I love that he was called out. If that happened more than one week, the WR coach should be fired. If it happens more than a couple, it is time for Beamer to call it a career. You can't let that type of effort go and not correct it.
I would love to hear the coach address this issue. I wonder if he has been asked about it as well.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||Fun win||
The offense and spacing does look really good. I agree that the competition might not have been the greatest, but it was still a solid performance. I did think our transition defense left a lot to be desired. There were a few times we didn't run back hard and when we did, we didn't rotate correctly. That has to be corrected or better teams will take advantage of it.
I thought we might see a little more of the point guard, two wings and two forwards look that we saw with McGary and Morgan. I didn't notice it tonight, but may have missed it. I really like that for a high low look.
We have many potential NBA guys on this team. I used to think Morgan had no shot, but I am not so sure anymore. McGary is a legit prospect due to his height and ability. GR3, Trey, and Hardaway all have a great chance as well. I could see Stauskus on a team and Horford as well if he keeps developing....Horford could be a long shot, but he looks to be continually improving.
I am really looking forward to seeing good competition with this team.
|27 weeks 2 hours ago||always expect a comeback||
I rarely ever leave any game early, but if I do I never leave if there is any chance. There are a whole bunch of people who have no idea when a game is actually over. There are so many things that can and do happen, I always keep watching.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Couple of thoughts||
Beilein ran a few 1-2-2 sets in when McGary and Morgan played together. Had a high/low look similar to Kansas (Bill Self) type offense. They didn't get deep enough into set without getting a shot, but they look to have another post option right away. I am hoping they add the single down pick to this concept Kansas runs on the backside for Hardaway/Robinson/Stauskus because it is great action and hard to stop. It is very similar action to what else Beiein likes to do and I have a feeling they will add it.
They also had McGary catch the first pass on the wing. He then passed to the top, set a downscreen and then posted up. Great action to work both bigs together at the same time. I haven't seen much of that before. These type of movements allow McGary and Morgan to play together and utilize both of their skill sets.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||Stauskus||
Diebler is the all time leading scorer in Ohio. He was aided by having a father as a coach who played a very, very uptempo game. They played Loyola Marymount style and he was really fun to watch in high school. He lost a state final game against Dayton Dunbar that may be the best high school game I have ever seen. He had 48 points and almost beat a loaded Dunbar team.
I am pumped about this team. Stauskus is going to surprise a lot of people. He is a perfect fit for this system.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||We can compete with the best||
Kentucky's formula doesn't work every year and Coach Cal will be gone before too long. We do need to recruit near top end recruits. The recruiting classes coming in are more than enough to put us in elite status as a program. Beilein will coach them up and we will make good runs in the Big Ten and tournament in future years.
BTW, I am very excited about Glenn Robinson III coming to town. He is going to look great in the maize and blue!!
|1 year 6 weeks ago||the best is yet to come||
We are going to be very, very good for the next several years. Near the top of the BIg Ten and competing for Final Four spots. The next big step is a nice tournament run. At least a sweet 16 next year and a final four in the next couple of years would be great. It is very possible with the talent we have.
I love this coaching staff and what they are putting together. It should be a special time in Michigan basketball. Go Blue!!!
|1 year 7 weeks ago||When you have to hide what you know||
You are watching a game and people make incorrect statements regarding Michigan sports....sometimes you bite your tongue and just go with it so people don't ask how and why you know so, so much about all things Michigan.
OR you find yourself right by a Michigan recruit like I did last week. I sat right behind Taco's bench and he was walking towards me. I was really, really tempted to stand up and do the pose that he made with Shane Morris in that picture that is always posted. I then thought to myself....I am a grown man and this is ridiculous. I am pretty sure he would have laughed, but I couldn't bring myself to do it.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||All Class||
Everything he has done in public has been all class.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||I still can't believe it||
I still can't for the life of me see how he thought this was a good idea. He had to be drinking or something. He is an AD at a somewhat major University :) and you just can't make mistakes like this. This makes him look really, really bad. Dave Brandon on the other hand.....looks like the man.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Good Hire||
He will do well there. I have followed him a while and he is a winner. I expect him to get kids and compete very well in the Big Ten. The league is stacked with good coaches and I expect him to fit right in.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Burke||
In my opinion, Burke would be making a huge mistake to leave. We do need to get a backup point guard asap, because I am not sure I see him staying 4 years. With the talent around him next year, he has the potential to have a monster second year. It seems to me that he is a fringe pick at this time. I can't imagine him going first round. I just hope he gets good advice and learns from Morris. If he goes, he better KNOW he will go first round.
I think Smot saw the writing on the wall with McGary. I liked Smot, but he is not a big loss at all. I love that it opens up time for McGary and Robinson to come in a play a bunch.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||agree completely||
I live in Ohio and there is nothing worse to a buckeye fan then calling them Ohio. They absolutely hate it. It is almost like calling them the worst name in the book and it is really under their skin. A win this fall and it will be unbearable for them. Go Blue and Beat Ohio!!!!
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Clemson||
My parents have season tickets to Clemson games. They pay 10k a year for the right to buy good tickets. They have a group called IPTAY, which is very active on campus. It originally stood for I Pay Ten A Year...I think now it is I Pay Thousands a Year....but there were hundreds of people at the IPTAY event we attended with them before a football game this fall. This is how the athletic departments have the money to do huge improvements like we are currently undertaking.
The money is used for facilities, scholarships and other expensive items you need to run a first rate program. It is what it is, but it does cost a bunch to run a great national program.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||that is really good||
I expected it to be horrible and was pleasantly surprised. I love to pictures of the baby up above. Too funny.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Craft||
Just because he is a white point guard, doesn't mean he shoots his free throws well :) He is only shooting 67% from the line. Not exactly as efficient as the article makes it sound. He has messed with his stroke and it has looked a little strange at times this year.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Whitmer||
This is a good hire for Saline. Whitmer blew up to be about as high of a profile job as I can ever remember any job being in Northwest Ohio. There were articles every week regarding recruiting. The Leroy Alexander case was on the news, in the newspaper and talked about around the city more than any kid I can ever remember. I am sure it got old dealing with that stuff. There were a huge number of kids that move in to play football, but I am not sure that isn't more a function of our society now.
It is hard to turn down a big pay increase. Saline High School is beautiful and quite frankly is a top notch place to live and work. Whitmer is a very good place for a school in a major city, but is still different than a Saline. I would doubt coach will ever have the type of talent he had at Whitmer, but he will still be successful there. He is a very, very solid coach and a great hire for Saline.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||offensive numbers||
They do tend to run and control the clock. You can win with defense, limited turnovers and running the ball. They have good specials teams as well. The only number that truly counts is the 7-1 record. They probably aren't winning the super bowl, but they went from 1-4 with no hope this year to a potential playoff team. Not bad for a guy who isn't good enough to be an nfl qb.
Also, major props to Tebow for nailing that long fg...that was also clutch.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Tebow||
I can't believe he keeps winning the way he does. By all accounts, he is as genuine as they come away from the field. The media frenzy surrounding him is insane and he handles it so well. The funny thing is you almost knew they were going to come back. The kid is a winner...plain and simple. People will have to listen to him talk about his God because he isn't going to stop. It causes so many to people to hate him, but it is what it is.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||What is going on with that picture||
D-andy??? I am a little slow and sometimes might be missing something....BTW, I can't get enough of the giant pictures of celebreties being part of the play calling system....moar of that please....makes the game more entertaining.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||I thought we were talking about Lloyd Brady||
Lloyd Brady really is that big...I thought for sure this was a story about him going to class. I am just glad we don't have a coach with the name facepalm, or we would be really confused.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||I wish nothing but the best for him||
I can't think of a kid that I don't know personally that I have ever pulled for more than this kid. I say a prayer for him whenever his name comes up. If he was physically able to play without holding up his progress, I am sure they would let him. The game can be a great distractor during times of grief and trouble. I hope he is able to play as soon as possible and would love to see him make a full recovery. I would love to root for him on the court at Michigan, but if he never plays a minute I hope he is able to have a successful life.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||all about urban||
Every Buckeye fan I talk to thinks Urban is the chosen one. Most still aren't taking Michigan too seriously imo, but it could just be my friends. I think they assume Urban will will almost every game he plays against Michigan. Next year sets up as a huge turning point game for the series. Denard as a Senior gives us a great chance to win in Columbus....and it would put a ton of pressure on them to win the following year.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Toledo!!!||
Toledo is absolutely the greatest place in the world the week of the game. Tons of Michigan fans, but the Buckeyes are brutal. I have had to listen to way, way too much garbage and it is nice to see the tide turning.
