It's early, but the Union is in first place, so they can't be that bad.
|1 week 2 days ago||Tiger Stadium||
I would love to see an MLS team here. My struggle with MLS has been lack of a rooting interest.
For location, I would love to have it at Michigan and Trumball. A small soccer specific stadium (with the flag pole still in place) would be a great use of the land.

That's his job. To limit a kid's opportunities because it will make your job harder is ridiculous.

Good to see. It was the right thing to do.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Not quite court||
It sounds like there is an internal UM policy that allows them to appeal the restriction and that's what Beilfelt had to use to go to Indiana. If the people making the rulings on appeals aren't athletic people, I would assume Spike could easily win this as there's very little reason to restrict him that isn't purely self serving on the basketball team's part.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Bad Move||
Beilein is just wrong on this. I am not a fan of transfer restrictions in general, but I can kind of understand it when the person is leaving and you want them to stay. When you tell someone they can't stay, it flies in the face of common sense that you are then allowed to restrict what they can do. In my mind, you lose all credibility in regards to student athlete welfare when you do something like this that is so obviously self serving and, in my opinion, unethical.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Thoughts...||
1. Walton and Irvin need to figure out what to do when they get to the paint. Not only can they not score at the rim, they can't even get a shot off.
2. Beilein has to come up with something different at the 5. Just seems like he isn't looking for the right thing.
3. Will be interesting to see how they manage the scholarships. Sounds like Davis is a solid student who has developed into a good player. Him going to prep school makes very little sense.

He has connections on the committee. Pay attention to what he says around 5 on Sunday.

UM was 2-10 against the top 7 teams in the conference. They avoided bad losses, but it was pretty clear they were not as good as the teams that finished above them.

I am surprised not to see the "Eye on College Basketball" podcast. I really like Gary Parrish and they do a great job of giving the big picture view of college hoops. Norlander and Veccine are ok, but Parrish drives the show and is a really good listen.
I listen to "The Audible" for big picture college football. Stewart Mandel and Bruce Feldman are solid and they get pretty good guests.
More generally, "This American Life" is the all time classic. Calamari anyone?

I wouldn't put him on the hot seat unless he refuses to acknowledge that he needs to adjust. 4-out, 1-in is a reasonable way to win, but the big needs to be an athletic scrapper who can dive on the pick and roll and there has to be someone who can take people off the dribble.

I don't see how you could clearly say it was or wasn't on his fingertips. Not over turning seemed like the right call to me.

Not being a dick, but do you have any suggestions? I've been looking for something subtle but nice. Willing to spend mid 3 figures.

To be fair, there were several follow up tweets to this story saying that Hoke had been in the past.
|21 weeks 10 hours ago||Fired||
If someone who works for me texted a friend and identified a person they treated by name, they would absolutely be fired. Everyone who works in the medical field is trained on that from day one and is well aware of the consequences.

I think there's some truth to this. Between the offensive philosophy and the skill set Beilein seems to be looking for, I'm not sure there's a lot to take from Alexander. He could obviously do better, but it's a tough spot to be in.

Similar story for me. I have used it for rental car discounts a few times. I really should make more of an effort to use it.

Mine were transferred to me in that 2006 window from my dad who got them in 1959. Hoping that someday my daughters are interested in them.

Agreed. That could have easily been Bellomy @ Nebraska, but Speight got it together and made 2 absolutely essential throws to give UM a chance to win the game.

Sometimes Kansas misses a front end, Trey hits a 30 footer, and the next thing you know you're in the national title game.

Sounded great in section 22. Granted, they were aimed right at us, but I thought it was really good.
|31 weeks 6 hours ago||The Audible||
Not B1G or UM specific, but I like the Audible from FoxSports. Steward Mandel and Bruce Feldman are pretty calm and cover a lot of ground. It's a nice way to get a 1000 foot view on the country as a whole. Good guests (Nicole Auerbach, Dave Wandstadt, Joel Klatt) too.

Morris never put his helmet on or joined the huddle the entire game while most of the other qbs did.
