this may be of some local interest

Yeah, honestly you might just need to wait. Because once they're out they will literally be everywhere - Walgreens, Meijer, Kroger - anywhere that sells any sort of grocery or book.

What's sad about that?
|16 weeks 6 days ago||Good for her||
Good for her, but I will dispute the "If not the the poorest part of Chicago" of your post. Regardless, good for her and I'm happy for those kids for having someone willing to literally and figuratively make efforts to invest in them.

I don't know the context, but I feel like he's measuring the attendance against his own team's prior attendance - people come to watch winners, so if you're coming off a Playoff Appearance the excitement is there.
Kind of like our hoops team with a lull in ticket sales or the huge increase in demand for FB tickets.
I don't see how he could be comparing MSU to Michigan because it's not like there are a bunch of undecided fans out there considering going to one spring game or another.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||Over it||
I'm over this. And not in the way you may think. Just put the damn banners back up. We got skewered for it, while the NCAA barely pinches other programs for the same transgressions. We're back now and getting our swagger back in both sports. Put the banners back up for the four guys who didn't take money, put the banners back up to welcome back one of the best college hoops players in our lifetime, and put the banners back up because the NCAA is full of hypocrites.
Who cares whether Webber took money, who cares whether he's been a child about it. Those games happened. Let's put them back up and end the recurring debate.

Most people I know who don't get their Jordan's for free don't actually use them to play basketball in. They are a lifestyle shoe.

What happened to Dr. Zernicke? I'm an alumni, and I had no idea they were even seeking a Dean.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Great||
But if you just read the headline it's easy to say Caris "isn't a team player" or whatever else people want to spew. Him and Coach B are on the same page as far as expectations and recovery. Caris will return when he's able, and I don't think it has anything relation to his desire to help this team win.
|28 weeks 6 days ago||Great sentiment||
Great sentiment, and I agree. But as a medical resident I can personally relate to the fact that the world just doesn't work that way. They'll have time to nap and these four years will be a great lesson in self-discipline (and some enforced disclipline) and time management.
|28 weeks 6 days ago||Waking Up Early||
I'm worried that Jim wasn't completely honest about the wake-up times for our athletes. What a scumbag /s. These kids think they're done waking up at 6AM? I see some 4:30-5:30 alarm clocks for early morning lifts in their futures.
|34 weeks 3 days ago||Good Post||
Good post. But with regard to recruiting Chicago and "white boy basketball." Who cares. He coaches fundamental basketball and it's a winning brand. We know he's not (or rarely) going to pursue the same player as Coach Cal. We'll get our players. Some will be white. We're going to keep winning. It's a fun program to follow. Who care where they come from.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||One year||
Are you talking just this year?
Branch has been a solid contributor for nearly a decade now. He hasn't been a star, but it's far from his first year doing well. Same with Hall, Long, Woodley, Harris, Stevie Brown, Avant, several other olinemen and others.
Now if we ARE talking just this year it's kind of slim pickings. Harris easy third, but afterwards...hmm
|43 weeks 1 day ago||Big Ten Network||
Sad news for the Big Ten and Coach Kill. I'm hoping he can land at Big Ten Network, where we need actual personalities who know football and I assume would accomodate his health needs better than being a head coach would.
|45 weeks 16 hours ago||Good post||
Draymond Green, Magic Johnson, Kirk Cousins, Travis Trice....and Tom Izzo
|46 weeks 20 hours ago||QBs||
I have the same opinion about QBs. Why are Cousins, Hoyer, McCarron, and so many more "game managers' sticking in the league as back-up QBs despite mediocre physical tools? They know how to think the game and manage a pro-style offense.
|46 weeks 1 day ago||Don't be so sure||
We have an OL coach guru and the physically impressive, to-be Junior son of an OL coach guru waiting for his opportunity.
That's not a knock against Glasgow. It's just humblebrag that we are probably past the days of relying on extradinary individuals to be our only good players in spite of poor coaching or youth.
|46 weeks 2 days ago||His Dessert Analogy||
I think I'm a pretty smart guy, but I cannot wrap my head around what he's trying to say with that dessert analogy to Maryland's offense. Maryland paid for defense? And feels like they don't need offense. All I'm saying if WOOF, nice try, guy.
And in the last paragraph he says we don't have talent or depth. Talent, maybe, at certain positions. But I think we're actually pretty deep at every positiion save QB and LB. Lots of guys are contributing all over the field.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Another reply||
Another reply because you're so right about the expectations bit. I was thrilled with the outcome of this hoops season because my expectations after departures and injuries reached a nadir of "get better and compete." We did that, and it was fun to watch.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Good post||
I completely agree about expectations, and will try to temper mine.

Jehu - "I don't want to leave out any names"
Mentioned Malzone, Morris, Rudock, Cleary, and Moores....did Speight officially transfer? Or is he still around? I can see not mentioning O'Korn or Gentry, but Wilton is an afterthought to walk-ons now?
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Booing||
I was against it at the time but I'm also against the players (Jabrill) acting like it was uncalled for. If 5-7 and garbage performance was Ok with them, I'm missing something. They "deserved" to get booed. Not saying we should have done it, but Jabrill should acknowledge they did it I themselves. 5-7 isn't acceptable at Michigan.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Yeah||
Yeah come on, he's gonna get another contract. He was solid as a rookie and below average as a sophomore. His floor is mediocre backup point guard. My prediction is a few good-great sessions. - Jameer Nelson is my career comparison. His ceiling is still as high as his situations and desire dictate. Billups isn't a perfect comparison style and size-wise, but it took him several years to really figure things out. Burke will be a long time pro barring injury.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Ouch||
Doesn't create much excitement when our "5th" and "4th" best offensive players are a Senior WR whose most memorable plays have been in run blocking, and a Junior QB whose most memorable plays include either concussions or interceptions, and who most believe will not be the starter.
So that's sad. But I don't think it's as bad as it sounds. I just think the guy making the list is a dope.
5 - Darboh
4 - Cole
3 - Glasgow
1 - Green/Isaac/Smith/Johnson (Tough to pick WHO it will be, but there's enough talent/competition for someone to emerge, and a good enough offensive line to expect good production)
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Well then||
You'll love the fact that my nickname for Caris LeVert is Caris "The Jump." I'm so funny.

I'm a new intern, so you get what you sign up for.
Don't get sick this weekend...
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Bottom 20||
I probably wouldn't include LS or K in the bottom 20. They're naturally lower ranked and I'm much more interested in seeing names of position players who may or may

He proved he's a good executive in the past, just an awful athletic director. He didn't take any shots at UofM and did say he learned from the experience. We (the MGoBlog Community) are such haters. Dave Brandon couldn't do anything that would receive anything less than a "he's an asshat" reaction.
I'll get negbanged. But let's move on.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||I know||
I know for an absolute fact that this type of thing happens at UofM, and would bet any at any other program across the country too.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Tate Forcier||
As just one example, the 5th Quarter in a2 used to let 18 year old Tate Forcier play bartender and pass out drinks to himself, friends, and random customers on Saturday nights.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Have you seen him play?||
His motor skills are not there. It's a miracle he can do what he can do. There's no shame in that. He's a total success even with a medical.
