It was the best of times it was the blurst of times? .... You stupid monkey.

Does the NCA thing mean there is no NCAA sponsored cheerleading championship? Just curious.
Also go mens gymnastics this weekend who I believe are also going for their second straight championship.
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||Last Year vs This Year||
Its all about perspective but the two years aren't all that comparable. Indiana was arguably the most talented team in the Big Ten last year, won the conference than flamed out in the Sweet 16 while Michigan went to the championship game.
This year Wisconsin had a really easy Big Ten slate and still lost to a Michigan team without McGary by three games, and went to the Final Four over the Elite 8. Final Four is of course better than the Elite 8 but not by the same margin that Championship game is greater than Sweet 16.
Michigan fans will say Michigan had the better year, Wisconsin fans Wisconsin, but saying you wanted Michigan's run last year doesn't mean you have to say Wisconsin's this year is better.

You took my answer. Just to have a dissenting opinion I was going to say Nebraska based on expectations. They were picked to finish last in the Big Ten (I believe) and ended up with a 4 seed in the Big Ten tourney ahead of both Ohio State and Iowa.

Watching the Tigers later, taking the wife out to dinner and bemoaning the unfairness in the sports world that somehow Calipari is about to win his second National Championship in three years. So much for my hope that a second straight down year this year would put a damper on his recruiting.
Oh well, at least spring looks to have finally arrived in NC full-time, so time to again attempt to salvage something from my yard. Maybe this year I can get some grass to grow consistently.

Traevon Jackson is not very good at the whole offensive side of the basketball game.

If you are watching TNT you are on the Kentucky teamcast, switch to TBS for the normal national broadcast.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed||
I still feel weird not hating them though, its been such a constant over the last few years. But this Wisconsin team is actually fun to watch.

Going for the Zack Novak fouling out on five block/charge calls tonight.

You mean you don't want to go out and buy an AmazonFireTV now?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Refs||
I agree they have been crappy so far (as usual), but I don't know if I have ever seen Michigan fans complain so much about the refs during a non-Michigan game. The Kentucky hate is strong on this board right now, and I am all for it.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Agree/Disagree||
I agree Wisconsin is better able to hang in down low than Michigan was, but Kentucky also started sloppy/slow vs. Michigan. Michigan jumped out to the earlier lead, but eventually Kentucky's sheer athleticism got them back in it. It will be interesting to see if they can continue their hot shooting or overwhelm Wisconsin athletically as well.

Steve Kerr saying he is one of the best in college basketball at influencing the games by yelling at the officials. Good for Wisconsin, but I don't think that is a good thing for college basketball that a coach can do that.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Kentucky's Tournament Win Streak||
Convienently omits the fact that they lost in the first round of the NIT last year.

Turned VCU into a consistent and occasionally dangerous NCAA tournament team. Which I feel is pretty impressive at a school with to my knowledge no basketball history whatsoever. Is he as good a coach as everyone was saying he was after his Final Four run, no, but I am not sure you will find many more impressive coach resume's outside of the traditional basketball power.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||X-Men/Spiderman||
While I agree, those franchises have gone downhill the more movies they have put out, that is the fault of Fox for the X-men and Sony for Spiderman. Marvel does not control the movie rights for them. Marvel is responsible for the dissapointing Hulk movies, but not the X-Men, Spiderman or Fantastic Four franchises.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Respectfully Disagree||
Guardians of the Galaxy by DnA was one of my favorite recent Marvel runs and I was really skeptical about the movie, but I really enjoyed the trailer. Not sure what you thought was in it that looked awful exactly, but I think they did a good job of translating the comic as best they could to a movie. Of course this was just a trailer, so for all I know the movie could be terrible, but I was far more excited after the trailer than I was before.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Trailer Looks Solid||
Love the X-men, but the X-3 and the two Wolverine movies, coupled with the great success Marvel has had with their movie-verse has made me very doubting of Fox and their X-Men movies. First Class was better than expected, but this movie looks like it could be too crowded. To many mutants, to much jumping back and forth, and I am not a fan of them shoving Wolverine into the role originally played by Kitty in the comics.
But who am I kidding, I will go see it, enjoy it and eagerly anticipate the next one. But Captain America: Winter Solider and Guardian's of the Galaxy should be much better this summer.

I believe Silver just said on twitter that they are rolling the website out in stages or something similar to that. So it works for some people but doesn't work for others, should work for you at some point latter this afternoon.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||FF||
Well Kate Mara is quite attractive, it will be interesting to see her as a blonde. I really liked Michael B Jordan in Friday Night Lights. No idea who the other two are, the one looks like an odd choice for the Thing but I assume he will spend 3/4 of the movie as the CGI Thing, so not sure his physical appearance matters as much.
Love the FF comic's when done right (Millar or Hickman spring to mind), it will be interesting to see if they can really capture the right tone in the movie.

Great work by THJ. Still doesn't have the greatest handle in the world, but when he gets hot he cannot miss. Those were some deep 3 pointers and he made them look like 15 foot jump shots. Great to see the U of M guys doing well.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||DeWeaver||
Howdy Brandon, always appreciate the updates. Do you get the impression the DeWeaver will be the QB in 2016 and the coaches are just taking their time, or does the interest seem to be more on DeWeaver's side and the coaches will pursue other options more intensly then him once the lock up the 2015 QB?

Depsite the terrible conditions on the roads, and the fact that Chapel Hill has shut down all buses and encouraged fans to stay off the roads, the Duke/UNC basketball is still on for tonight. I guess the Duke team is going to take a bunch of snow plows to get from Durham to Chapel Hill. Apparently there are already fans abadoning their cars 2.5 miles from the arena and starting to walk.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Durham||
I live in Durham and take classes at UNC, they shut down the University around noon today, and the bus getting out of campus that usually has 8 to 12 people was packed with people standing everywhere. Then my drive home from the mall that usually takes 5 to 10 minutes took about an hour.
My wife is a nurse and has to go to work tomorrow, I am hoping it clears up somewhat by tomorrow morning or her drive is going to be terrible.

I was going to ask, any idea if any games in the near future are going to be on BTN, or live video on mgoblue.com? Or am I stuck with the thankfully quite informative Michigan softball twitter account.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Dakich||
Dakich doesn't believe that Craft has ever committed a foul in his entire basketball playing life. Dakich also called out the entire OSU team for a lack of effort in their last couple games, except for Craft of course. Dakich knows he is still working as hard as he possibly can. He may not have a high enough basketball IQ to get a shot off at the end of a game, but man is he a gritty hard worker.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Big Ten Standings||
First of all, well done, every list on this site of future conference standings should have coaches pictures or they aren't doing it right.
Can we also just take a moment to savor the fact that Northwestern is half a game up on OSU in the standings.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Northwestern||
Holy cow, I don't know if I have ever seen a college basketball team handle the press worse then this. Northwestern just gave Wisconsin five free points with a complete inability to get the ball past half court, and now a five second call, geez.
