“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

|15 weeks 4 days ago||Sean Obi||
Sean Obi is transferring from Rice. Maybe gets a waiver due to the coaching change there. On the C-USA all-Freshman team. 6' 9", 265 pounds. Grabbed 31% of opponents misses. Shot 60% from the floor. Averaged 11 points and 9 rebounds a game as a Freshman.
Originally chose to go to Rice because of their strong engineering and business schools. I would think we could satisfy him in those areas as well at UM.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Seniors||
I think too many people are overlooking the significance of losing the bench players that this team loses to graduation. We are losing a lot of experience and leadership in the locker room. There is a reason Bartelstein was named Captain and that Corey Person was invited back for a 5th year. Now they, along with Eso, Vogrich and McLimans are gone. If Burke and Hardaway leave for the NBA, someone will need to step up and lead this team. There were 15 players on the team this year. If Burke and Hardaway leave, that would mean 7 of the 15 - nearly half are gone. It would also mean that we will only have 11 scholarship players and no walk-ons. It will be interesting to see who, if anyone, the coaching staff brings in as either grayshirts or walk-ons to fill out the roster.

Stauskas is like J.J. Redick, except taller.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||74-67 Michigan||
This one will likely be closer than people think. By way of example, KenPom has IUPUI ranked 237. Cleveland State is 94. Michigan should still win, but the level of competition is steadily increasing.
MSG will really be a challenge as Pitt and K.State are ranked 13 and 15 respectively by KenPom.

I'll take 236
|2 years 41 weeks ago||MGoblue depth charts||
Cam Gordon has been listed as the starting SLB on every depth chart released so far this season.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||NSFMF||
That stretch adds up to 18 points over a 3 game stretch. My list was limited to seasons where the defense gave up 10 or less combined points over a 3 game stretch.
I do agree that the 1997 defense was awesome. I was surprised that they did not make the cut.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Agreed||
No argument from me. I was in Pasadena to watch them beat Washington in the Rose Bowl.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||UM Defense- 3 game stretch 10pts or less||
Possible excuse for unbridled optimism:
In the last 30 years, there have only been 3 seasons other than 2011 where the UM defense has allowed a total of 10 or fewer points over a 3 game stretch.
2003 - During that year, Michigan only lost 2 regular season games by a combined total of 7 points @Iowa and @Oregon. Went on to lose to USC in the Rose Bowl.
1985 - UM did it twice in one season. Finished reg. season 9-1-1 with a 2 point loss @Iowa and a 3-3 tie @ Illinois. Went on to beat Nebraska in the Fiesta Bowl.
1980 - UM shutout Indiana, Wisconsin and Purdue in consecutive weeks. Finished reg. season 9-2 with only a 2point loss @South Bend, and a 3 point loss to South Carolina at home. Went on to beat Washington in the Rose Bowl.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||Jonathan Goodwin||
No offense to Molk, but Jonathan Goodwin was a Pro-Bowl reserve at center after playing center for the Saints on their run to the Super Bowl. I think I would give him the nod at center.
ED. Oops. 1 minute too late.

Isn't Rich Eisen a Michigan man?
|2 years 50 weeks ago||Jibreel||
I think Jibreel is okay. Brandon Graham was listed at 6' 2", 263 lbs. as a Senior. J.Black at 6' 2", 260 is nearly identical. Plus, he is wearing Graham's number. Now, if he could just play like Brandon, we'd be in good shape.
|2 years 50 weeks ago||We are not undersized on defense||
Comparing our current roster with our roster in 2006
In 2006, the Defensive Line (W. Johnson, A. Branch, L. Woodley, J. Van Alstyne, T. Taylor, T. Jamison and R. Biggs) averaged 284.86 lbs.
In 2011, the D-line (Martin, Campbell, Roh, Van Bergen, Washington, Ash, Black and Heininger) averages 292.63 lbs.
In 2006, our LB's (Burgess, Graham, Crable, Thompson and Harris) averaged 233.8 lbs.
In 2011, our LB's (Gordon, Demens, Jones, Fitzgerald, Ryan, Bell & Evans) average 236 lbs.
In 2006, our DB's (Hall, Trent, Adams, Barringer and Englemon) averaged 200.4 lbs.
In 2011, our DB's (Floyd, Woolfolk, Johnson, Furman, Gordan and Kovacs) average slightly less at 198.17 lbs.
Also, our Tight Ends in 2006 were Tyler Ecker at 246 and Mike Massey at 234.
This year, we have Koger at 258, Moore at 255, Watson at 255 and Miller at 234. Interesting to see that Miller is already as big as Massey was.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Making the Cut||
I believe that cut is top 44 including ties and anyone within 10 strokes of the leader. Because the leader is currently at -7, the projected cut line is for anyone over +3. I would guess that someone is going to finish the day with a score better than -7. I think that for Lion to make the cut, he is going to have to get to Even or maybe +1. Not impossible, but would require an unbelievable round.

Beilein announced that Dumars is being redshirted. I believe he injured his knee.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Jordan Morgan||
It is encouraging to realize that Jordan Morgan is having a better first season than both D. Sims and C. Sims in a number of categories including Min/Game, FG%, Rb/Game, Assists, steals, and Pts/Game. If he can continue to develop and improve under Coach Alexander's tutelage, perhaps a NBA future is not out of the question.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Huh?||
Not what I was suggesting at all. I was responding to a post about Beilein and the team claiming that we have no post presence and it is because Beilein just wants big guys to shoot 3's all the time. Jordan Morgan's play so far this year suggests otherwise as he has been camped out in the paint and not asked to shoot 3's.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Post presence||
Your post suggests you have not seen the team play. The second leading scorer on the team is Jordan Morgan, our 5. He has not even attempted a single 3 pointer and scores almost all of his points on the inside, mainly off of nice pick and rolls with D-Mo.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||You will be able to buy||
You will be able to buy tickets at the door. There will also be professional scalpers outside, as well as friendly people looking to get rid of some extra tickets. You should not have any problem getting into the game. For these early games, the stadium is about 1/3 full.

I believe Smotrycz and Hardaway were top 100 recruits per ESPN as well.

Also, Cam Newton is 6' 6", 250 lbs. Would be great to get the benefit of speed and size.

Colin Kaepernick at Nevada is 6' 6'', 225 and he runs like a deer.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Special Teams||
Not sure that we were "thoroughly outplayed" on special teams. Michigan averaged 21 yds per kickoff return to 14 for MSU. Each team had one punt return: Michigan for 14 yards, MSU for 9. Net yards per punt: Michigan won the battle 44.8 to 36.5. Avg. per punt: Michigan won the battle 47 to 45. Other than going 1/2 on FG's, Michigan outplayed MSU in virtually every other aspect of special teams.

Visitor's sideline. Section 29. Can't remember row - something in the 50's.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||Love It||
Having different angles for replays is sweet. Also fun to be able to follow stats, although it wished it showed all of the stats instead of just the category leaders. It is also great for kids. My 6 year old son loves it and finds it easier to follow the action on the field by watching the live feed. Wish it would work at away games so I could bring it with me to Indiana this weekend.

|4 years 1 day ago||What?||
You've got to be kidding me. They kicked him out. What if the fans were heckling a Yankee fan who was there to enjoy the game and support his team by wearing a Jeter jersey. Would they escort the Yankee fan out of the stadium? Sounds crazy to me, but then again it is Ohio. My guess is the fan was doing more than just sitting there with the jersey on.

Maybe he can convince Rick to leave Skip Holtz and come to UM instead of going to South Florida.
