Pickup basketball against AC at CCRB in the day. Played against Carl Banks; he was a beast.

My Dad, brother, and I played out of our minds and won a golf scramble. Dad wasn't much of a player but he rolled in 3-4 putts, and he was so excited. He died two year later on that date, and my brother and I still talk about it. (June 17, 1994 -- same day as the O.J. Bronco chase)

Saw Austin Hatch make a couple of free throws, and I had tears in my eyes.

Fantastic player and a good guy.

Mike Lantry's kicks at the end of the Ohio State/Michigan games in 1973 and 1974, especially the 1974 miss that many claim was good, would make a good 30 for 30.

|1 year 25 weeks ago||Thank you||
Thank you for these posts! Only 9 months until the 2016 season starts.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Stunning||
At the end of September 2012, Michigan was 4-0 and ranked. The idea that Brady Hoke would be fired would never had occurred to Michigan Nation. His teams were 23-7 with a BCS win. The collapse of the program has been stunning. Off tackle left for -2 with 7 in the box when Gallon had a 9-yard cushion.

Thanks and welcome.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Wow||
Very sad episode for the Michigan football program, but who is surprised that Brady Hoke was overwhelmed by the moment?
|1 year 34 weeks ago||For Brady Hoke||
Does the medical staff have an obligation to tell the football staff immediately when a concussion is diagnosed?
Did Hoke meet with counsel for the University prior to the Monday press conference?
Did Hoke decide not to learn the results of SHane Morris's examination to allow him to pretend to be ignorant of a concussion at Monday's press conference?
When did Hoke learn of the diagnosis?
When Hoke learned that there would be a press release on the diahnosis, why did he not ask what it would contain?
|1 year 34 weeks ago||The medical staff will take the hit||
There is video of all of the treatment rendered. If someone cleared him medically and communicated that to Hoke, Hoke has a justification for allowing him to play and avoid getting fired. There will be a lot of scrutiny of the medical staff.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Although it won't happen ...||
Suspension with pay for one week pending internal investigation of medical protocol and no one telling Hoke that the wobble occurred -- especially if Coach Nuss was telling him to stay down. Are there pictures of the sideline immediately after the wobble? I haven't seen any.

The decisions have nothing to do with the team or winning. He ran a hurry up down 31 with the starters in the last minute, and today they ran 40 seconds off the clock per play down three scores in the fourth quarter. He decided on Morris and Mossis was going to stay in the game irrespective of performance or health -- because that is what Brady decided. Sad

The big question is whether the offense will improve over the course of the season. Can Brady, Coach Nuss, and the staff coach up the players?

Wonderful to see the traditional pre-game posts. Excited about 2014-2015 for Michigan!
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Hope You Are Right||
The 2014 team has a chance to have a great year. But predictions for the individual games -- especially before the first snap of the season -- mean little. Who thought a year ago that the 2013 team would be outplayed by both CT (ranked 121st in Sagarin EOY) and Akron (137) and feature the worst offensive line in college football?
Are the pre-season expectations for this team really higher than they have been for any season since the Lloyd Carr era?
With the exception of App State and Miami of Ohio (and arguably Rutgers), there are no automatic wins on the schedule. That said Michigan also has a chance to make the national championship playoff. I would bet under 9.5 wins for what it is worth.
The stage is set for a level of disppointment that dwarfs what 2013 produced if this team struggles.

|2 years 8 weeks ago||Beilein is the best||
Steve Fisher and Tommy Amaker have done well since leaving Michigan,as did Johnny Orr and Bill Frieder. Even Brian Ellerbee had a virtually-impossible task of building a winning program under the circumstances. But John Beilein stands out.
While John Beilein's offensive genius in clear, the turning point of his time at Michigan appears to have been replacing his entire coaching staff after the 2010 season. The quality of the recruits and player development improved dramatically after that. That had to have been an incredibly difficult decision personally, but Beilein did what was best for the program. He selected the perfect coaches to build the program and help him implement the Beilein system.
There is not another coach in America that I would want over Beilein to coach Michigan going forward -- although the prospects of recruiting 5 of the country's best 10 players every year is appealing, even if all are one-and-dones.

Thanks for all of the hard work. Belonging to this community of Michigan junkies is a joy.

MSU is losing six multi-year starters on defense. His stock will never be higher (think Jim Herrmann after 1997.) It is hard to imagine a 47-year-old D coordinator waiting for a 57-year-old head coach to retire. There are a number of high profile jobs open now, and more will open up soon. Good luck to him.

Mentioning Space Coyote by name was fine. By explicitly demeaning SC's credentials to bolster his argument, Brian was out of line. But it is his blog, so he can fire at anyone he likes. I will continue to read the material posted here in any event

The Michigan offensive line has had a better November than the ObamaCare website and it has a brighter future

LaVert's progress makes me wish John Beilein coached our offensive line
