Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

|6 days 23 hours ago||I was inbetween....||
High school senior. Was even better when they won the title when I was a Junior at UM.
|1 week 2 days ago||Amazing we got 3rd in 92-93 at 15-3.||
Conference must have had some real powerhouses.
|1 week 3 days ago||I didn't see one so I started one.||
Then I got down voted for starting a "third" one. Maybe different browsers?
|1 week 3 days ago||Is the Chip Kelly comment real?||
Why would he see Borges's play chart?
|1 week 3 days ago||Anyone know what Michigan averaged?||
In 68 and last year? Be interesting to see it from 68 to last year actually. If Ohio ran a lot of plays in 68 under Woody, seems like Bo might have been doing the same in 69.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Can we just vacate our losses?||
It would be nice to have an undefeated basketball season!
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Awesome post!||
Any chance you could add a chart for the B1G West?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Marshall's is in?||
I signed up for the text updates and don't have one for Marshall. Everyone else though.
|5 weeks 4 hours ago||As snarling indicates, Detroit's density is fairly normal||
That article is pretty misleading even though factual. San Francisco, Boston and Manhattan are some of the densest places in the US.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||After 26 years, I am not renewing||
Not a fan of the corporate experience nor the lackluster schedule. Plus, the internet makes it a lot easier to get tickets for the games I want. I am still keeping my season hockey tickets but Yost has become a shell of itself with all the corporate seats that are empty.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I agree||
You only stay on top of the world for so long.
|6 weeks 13 hours ago||Good point||
That range can be used all year!
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Is the referree behavior influenced by the crowd essentially?||
Would this imply that teams like large full stadiums should have a better home field advantage than teams with small/emptier stadiums. Have these studies looked at that?
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks Coach Borges!||
You were our offensive coordinator for one of our most successful seasons in the BCS era which concluded with a Sugar Bowl win!
|8 weeks 5 days ago||I just up voted on my iPad....||
Is there some ap you have? I just use the standard site.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||I could see that being a big part of this.||
Makes me wonder if Brandon foreced the issue for that very reason.
I am okay with it, let's use Michigan's resources to be the best!
|8 weeks 5 days ago||I am with you.||
Another 7-6 season and I think the Hoke era ends unless there are some extreme cirumstances like Gardner and Morris being hurt most of the season or 6 losses by a total of 9 points or something.
I think he is on the seat at 8-5 honestly. Three mediocre seasons in a row sound pretty bad. Consider our history starting with Bo. Over the last 45 years, Michigan has lost 5 or more games 7 seasons. Once by Bo in 1984. Once by Carr in 2005. Three by RR (2008-2010) and now two by Hoke (2012-2013).
I think Hoke needs to go 9-4. It's his fourth season at the helm, the team is mainly his guys. The season sets up well in that while your 3 rivalry games are all on the road, you are probably favored to win your other 9.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Well was it 900 or countless times?||
Just kidding. I understand your point but I took it to mean that he intended to bring them back but that maybe he would lose 1 to a promotion at another program. Hard to believe he anticipated bringing Borges back.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||That doesn't seem like a positive trait.||
But you may be right.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Didn't Hoke say he was retaining his staff?||
Or did I imagine that. I wonder if this is Brandon forcing the issue.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||We beat them in football in 2000 in Columbus||
Not sure on BBall.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I would think Vegas would have the over/under at 8.5||
i think we will be underdogs for sure in the 3 road games against our rivals.
As for Notre Dame, I don't think we usually beat ND on the road. We have lost 2 of our last 3 on the road there and 5 of the last 7 on the road there.
I think we go 8-4 or 9-3.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||It's not new||
People thought that after the 87 season. I was a student and the talk was how the game passed Bo by and MSU was the new power.
Well then Michigan won 5 straight Big Ten titles (4 outright) and that nonsense was put to bed.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||It could have happened.||
Oklahoma played LSU for the national title in 2003 but did not win the Big 12. Alabama beat LSU for the national title in 2011 but did not even win the SEC West. I also think Nebraska may have not won the Big 12 in 2001 when they played Miami for the national title.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||I think Hoke was trying to appease the old timers||
Bo always focused on B1G titles because it was in your control whereas the National Title was in the hands of the voters. I don't think this is why there is a difference in level of success this season.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||A crappy variation of this occurred in 2000.||
Anthony Thomas had the yards for a first down and could have just kneeled down. But instead he kept going to try and get a TD. A Northwestern defender caught him and forced a fumble. Northwestern then scored to beat Michigan 54-51.
If Thomas had just taken a knee past the sticks, it would have been victory formation time.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Not true.||
The AP writers are not required to vote for the winner of the BCS Title game.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Mr. Miggle is correct||
Oklahoma was undefeated but then lost big in the Big 12 championship game (35-7). Somehow in the computers, they were still ranked high enough to play in the BCS game. All 3 teams had 1 loss. USC, despite being ranked #1 in both human polls, was left out. LSU beat Oklahoma 21-14 to take the BCS Title whereas USC beat Michigan 28-14 to take the AP Poll.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||93 gave up on the pass play.||
Might have gotten to Cook
|9 weeks 6 days ago||How lucky was that?||
