If identity politics ever stop, this will cease to be a story.

Any new HC appears to be academic if Trader Joe isn't shown the door as well. Dumars was excellent early on establishing a branding...but maybe time for him to move on as well?

Is an automatic stop for us every time we pass, hungry or not.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Another dimension||
To add to our 24/7 sport cycle would be post game accessibility to officials/ umpires. I think it would be good to hear what they saw and why they called what they did. I also think if they knew they had to answer questions in a pressed for 5-10 minutes a night/game, there may be some judiciousness and better discretion used.
I have nothing with which to back that up, but there are coaches who do think about doing/ not doing something based on how it will look if it doesn't pan out, such as 4th and 1 from his own 49.

The game itself was too fast for the officials. Great game peppered with some awful calls. That said, the first half until Hancockapalooza was so much fun to watch.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||THJ was AWOL again on||
THJ was AWOL again on offense. Had a couple of nice takes, including the dunk. He got beat on both back door back screen lobs, once as the primary defender and once as the help defender. Forced a ridiculous 3 from 30' and dribbled into trouble in successive possessions resulting in turnovers. I still think he's a good college player, not pro material, and could be a great Wolverine legend is he stays. He's a leader.
I hope he stays. (That reads weird after that 1st pp).
Spike was great in the 1st half and did his job spelling Burke, essentially giving a Burkian performance. I don't think he should have been in, either, at the end. Stauskas was a mismatch defensively and his poor decisions on two different half court plays buried him, as noted above.
Maybe more Morgan and McGary (or Horford) to help control the boards the last 8 minutes, where Louisville gained their advantage.
Definitely a time out during the Hancockapalooza.
Still, a great game, year and team to watch. I hate that Pitino wins this and all the other stuff that makes him look like a snake.

This is very hurtful...and awesome.

It seems one thing left unarticulated by the masses is the amount of clutching and grabbing 'Cuse did off the ball during their attempt to get back in the game with the press. It seemed that any and all of the UM players were getting mauled before the inbound.
Bilas was crazy this morning on the radio (ESPN) about this call and how it is really a "75-25 call in favor of the block. It should always start out as a block and only a charge when it is clearly not a block. It's not a 50/50 call".
He's a bitter man about this. Morgan did his job and Triche knew it. He didn't fight it and as others have noted above, he said he should have jump stopped. Yep.

This is the one I was hoping someone would get. Great find.

My comment didn't question his coaching, rather it was to mock the conventional thoughts of sports talk, print and other comments found in the World Wide Web.

One of these is not like the others. Keep your pants on and maybe constrain the primal urge for your wife.

But, Shaka Smart will out coach, er, never mind.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||What made the game so fun?||
There were rare moments of rage, maybe 3 or 4 possessions.
Other than that, it was so much fun to watch. This is a game that should be shown every fall to the new team with an intro: This Is Michigan Basketball

Charge by VCU. Pls take care of the ball. Only way VCU gets back in this is by TO's
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Granted||
Their D has something to do w it and they're relentless

Is a spaz right now w the ball
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Can't wait for the trap||
That's for sure.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Well||
Burke, may want to take care of the ball, eh.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I think many of their looks||
We're contested. VCU is going to have to hope those shots are less contested and we revert to our B1G D, which isn't going to happen on this stage.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||My guess is||
They trap earlier instead of running a guy at the ball in the front court. They will do more back court trapping.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Doubtful||
More like, "this is the preseason #4 everyone thought

We have 6 turnovers and Stauskas is oh'fer and we've missed some bunnies.
