I think the goal with this kid would be as a back up point guard for X. Hard to recruit a stud point while X there and getting almost all minutes. This kid would come in, play some minutes as solid back up and then you move on to your next set when X leaves. I see no issue with this. The anti Beilein stuff is getting out of control. Please go back and check MSU's record last 15 years. Izzo had two down two year stretches and obviously bounced back. Not comparing the two, but let's relax a bit and Let JB get some new blood in that hopefully stays healthy.

I say this somewhat in jest, but they are too damn scared to commit a foul. Don't touch anyone at any time is our strategy.

Exactly! Add simpson and Watson, teske can redshirt with Donnal emerging and next year looks very good indeed.

Simple tonight jack and Coke to go with homeland season 5 binge. Haven't shoveled yet this year (Brighton) and almost February. So far my stand against the wife's demand for a snowblower looking good....

Bummer that more students aren't interested. If I was a recruit and compared Breslin environment to ours, certainly not much of a comparison. I would love it if they would reward attendance - either always there or always get someone there. Bottom line they need to do a better job - the players deserve a better environment in my opinion.

I will say a friend of mine who had seats in the lower bowl for over 25 years was moved from lower to upper when they reorganized the seating due to priority points. Anyone who sat through all that bad basketball from 97 to beilein ought to be rewarded. I think there is truth to what you say and I think it sucks that they don't attend and it really sucks that they don't find someone to use their seats. I would gladly to pay to be closer if I could (pay the extra ticket price - not the $100k I would have to donate to get enough priority points),.
There is no reason we can't find 13,000 people to watch this basketball team, even with the cold and a shitty Minny team coming to town.

Always want UM butts in the seats. Kills me to see all those empty lower bowl seats every game. Need some changes to seating at crisler. More students in lower bowl and people who attend!
|31 weeks 3 days ago||ok||
On the way. You will get three emails for the 4 tickets; make sure you get them all. Enjoy.

Give it up. We had plenty of chances on offense to put this game away. Targeting and Henry call the only ones I am upset about. Butt catch there was no indisputable evidence. Enough already.

Love them both, but would be basketball for me for sure. John Beilein deserves it.

I am with mgo brother in law in Columbus and we had plump jack Cabernet with dinner and blanton's whiskey after. Still going with the fire.

I was in the first row on the goal line. Wow. We had friends in town from state and they couldn't believe that we sulked and drank all night. Obviously they were used to losing and then partying. Painful.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||That is the issue||
That is the issue this year in my mind. When you have deeper teams you can sit a guy with 2 fouls. It is painful to watch Dakich on the court - I know he is working his tail off but we are playing 4 on 5 on offense and his defense is a problem as well.
They can't afford to sit MAAR and Irvin in a game like that. If you sit the players with 2 fouls, you are AUTOMATICALLY playing minutes with very weak players in the game. That will catch up with you when it is Dakich and lonergan. If you let the players with 2 fouls play, there may be a game when they get into trouble in the second half and you are without them. It may then cost you a game, but guess what, sitting them in the first half has cost us potentially 2-3 games! Had those players been allowed to play, you may take yourself out of a game in the second half, but kept yourself in 2-3 others because they never got into additional trouble.
Benching them in the first half GUARANTEES minutes with weaker players; playing them MAY result in problems in the second half but is never a guarantee and more often than not will work out. Most years I am ok with it, but not this year. We don't have the horses and need to play our best 6-7 guys regardless.

Funny a lot of UCLA guys. My wife pulled out a picture of her with Harbaugh on a plane in 1986 and he has a UCLA hat on.

The miles rumor was true. Friends of ours live in Barton hills and it was confirmed they were looking there.....
|1 year 36 weeks ago||It's interesting||
that Brian said there was a brief bit of buzz/euphoria Thursday night that then subsided. I friend of mine has a friend who has a BIG donor in the family and knows Ross well. He said Ross' plane was used to get things locked up on Thursday. He didn't say anything about who it was; just said it was getting done and Michigan had hired their coach. Does eerily coincide with all the rumblings.

Buddy of mine watched Malzone recently and said he looked really good and was a beast. Here's hoping......
|2 years 19 weeks ago||I guess I would disagree a bit||
Mitch did have position at times, but beilein talked about this during the season. He said guys needed to be comfortable on the block for them to work the ball through them. He indicated Mitch wasn't there yet. I think beilein would certainly work the ball through the post if he had the option. He may not recruit it, but he would use it. There were times they isolated Nik on the block when they were guarding him with small quick's.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||As big a golfer||
as I am, I would still say March Madness is a bigger event. But definitely top 4 with the derby, super bowl.
1986 Masters still the best for me. Cemented my interest in golf - amazing Sunday round by Jack. Nothing like that image of him raising his putter as another birdie drops.
I will be pulling for Ernie and Phil. Perfect golf year for me is Ernie winning the Masters to add a green jacket he deserves and Phil winning the US Open.

We have 6'10 bruiser on bench hurt. That is a game Mitch was built for. They were awesome though. Real bummer.

a national champion. Too many good teams the last few years with no title. Have to get one at some point to validate. Better be us - don't like the alternatives much right now.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||They are good||
but not awesome like they were with Ashley. THey have struggled to score without him. They don't scare me like they did after watching the December game at Crisler.
