The Basketball Band only travels for the post-season tournaments. That was a local band wearing Michigan shirts.

Looking at the first picture, now THAT is an official coach's polo.

Jake Ryan encased in carbonite on his way to be displayed on the wall in Charlie Weis' house while Devin Gardner is left to replace his severed right hand.

It's a great documentary, but I couldn't help but feel that some of the OSU players from that team were being real passive-aggressive dicks at that dinner they had with the Michigan players, especially since the Michigan guys were all still obviously sad about it.

That was my mom's last as a student. After the game they made Rose Bowl travel plans and everything (not the easiest thing to do pre-Internet), figuring there was no way the ADs wouldn't send Michigan to Pasadena.

Bill Martin also started out as an interim AD, so this would not be out of the question.

I distinctly remember being at a friend's house in the summer of 2008 when an ESPN college football preview came on. The talking head said Michigan would go 5-7, and I laughed and said that was totally ridiculous.

Doubly impressive since the MMB doesn't have flutes!

Bit of a nitpick, but as a member of a high school drumline, Alex Mitropolous-Rundus would have spent quite a lot of time on a football field.

Football I'm not sure about. The athletic department had some weird years in the late '90s when they churned through three ADs in rapid succession who left the department deep in the red, the basketball scandal, and the university itself had uncharacteristically rapid turnover in the presidency. However, they also took home a national championship in football and two in hockey at the same time.

Two thoughts. First, our new head coach is going to need a defensive coordinator, and Muschamp has a well-proven track record on that side of the ball.

I think temperamentally, Meyer is more like Lee and Dantonio is more like Jackson.

Does anyone still have that 2013 M basketball highlight video set to a remix of "The Ecstasy of Gold" from "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly"?

Yeah, I didn't care for the politics in the book either. I thought it took away from an otherwise remarkable story.
He shoulda followed the "no politics" rule, I suppose.

IIRC the project Bacon was doing was a Herb Brooks version of "Bo's Lasting Lessons," so it would have been a bunch of anecdotes with the leadership lessons each anecdote demonstrated.

I assume it has a built-in speaker that plays "God Bless the USA" on an endless loop.

I was really hoping that "Destination Moon" was going to be a Tintin reference.

Probably because Schiano famously instructed his players to go after the opposing quarterback after he took a knee in the victory formation and he treated NFL scouts like lepers instead of his players' possible future employers.

This is how you do uniformz. I'm generally against them unless they're done right, but these are done right.

I want Brandon gone, and im glad this turned out to be true. But just because the MGoStaff dug up the proof for what WD claimed doesn't mean he wasn't irresponsible in posting the original email without any sources.
This should be a cautionary tale.

I think it's funny, but they really should have done it in skywriting to get the full effect.

I would argue that winning the national championship in 1989 put Michigan basketball on the map, but that's just me.

Of course. Bo was an assistant at Northwestern and Ohio State. Gary Moeller was a co-captain of one of Woody Hayes' teams in the early 1960s. Carol Hutchins played basketball and softball at MSU. Fritz Crisper coached at Minnesota when they were one of Michigan's primary rivals.
I'm sure there are lots of examples from other schools as well. The one who comes to minds is Bret Bielema, who played and coached at Iowa then became the head coach at Wisconsin.

I can't wait to hear reports of Brandon's passive-aggressive whining about his self-evaluated job performance in the weeks after he's canned.

The vast majority of those facility improvements that have been completed were started by Bill Martin. Brandon saw them through to completion, but Martin allocated the funds and hired the architects and builders.

I wouldn't say I hate it, but I think the hockey team looks a lot better when they wear a maize or white sweater with the blue pants.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||My observation over the years||
My observation over the years of various uniforms is this:
Monochromatic looks always look bad unless it is all-white or all-black (including the helmet).
The best uniform combinations are where the helmet and jersey match with a contrasting pant color, or the helmet and the pants match with a contrasting jersey color.
