- They defended the inbounds play under the basket much better
- JB called time out to stop MSU runs really quickly...much more so, I think, than usual
- Novak and Douglass are taking 3-point shots from a few feet behind the 3-pt line, where they are more likely to be open than if they are right at the line

It's time for the coaching staff to prove itself.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Yes, that...||
what bluesalt said
|19 weeks 1 day ago||You folks must be putting your money where your mouth is...||
...now it's back to -4.5
Does anyone know if it's usual to be moving so much at this time?
|34 weeks 2 days ago||Sorry to disagree about ribs...||
...but Satchel's on Washtenaw (next to Whole Foods) is hands-down the best BBQ in town.
Zingerman's is the obvious choice for a unique A2 food experience
Nice sit-down meal: Zola (fries with house-made ketchup are special)
Best burger (IMO): Casey's, by the train station
Well, Blimpy is special, too....but a different species of burger

...maybe not the right solution for everyone, but works well for me.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||What is it about wearing red...||
...that turns people into morons?
|2 years 15 weeks ago||They're fine||
My tickets are in 206. The view is fine. Lower bowl is better, of course, but you won't miss anything.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Replacing "You Suck" makes sense....||
...but "Hoke Smash" is just plain douchey
|2 years 29 weeks ago||Post practice, not post scrimmage...||
Just to be clear, the interview was done after Thursday's practice, not after today's scrimmage...
|2 years 35 weeks ago||I would rather take...||
...two one-tech DTs. They seem to be so much harder to come by, at least for UM.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||The rating was said to||
The rating was said to reflect the entire staff, not just the head coach. Here was what they said about UM:
"Michigan: (HC-Brady Hoke 47-50, .484 in eight years, OC-Al Borges, DC-Greg Mattison) - Do not be fooled by the sub-.500 career record. Hoke led Ball State to a 12-victory season in 2008 while the nine victories at San Diego State last year were three more than any other Aztec season in the decade. Throw in a couple of veteran coordinators, including former Irish defensive leader Mattison, and the Wolverines should have the stability that was missing throughout the brief Rich Rodriguez era."
This description sounds more positive than the numerical rating, Shrug.

There are clearly needs at all of the positions mentioned, but at this point my order of concerns is:
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Interestingly, Kenpom predicts...||
...that we have the same chance of beating Wisconsin at home as we do beating Minnesota on the road (29%, link). To me, the latter feels more likely, but I'll be there to watch us try for the former.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||"Word With Friends"||
This is a game that I discovered last week and am totally hooked. You play it like Scrabble, asynchronously, either with people whom you know or (more likely) with complete strangers. Players make moves as time permits, so a game could take hours or even days. This could get boring if you only played one game at a time, but you are allowed to play up to 20 simultaneous games, so you almost always have active games that are waiting for yor next move.
The interface is very professional and it has been pretty stable so far.
WWF (got to love that acronym) is available for iPad/iPhone and I think it has just been released for Android. AFAIK, there is not a web browser version. I am not sure if this is an intentional omission or if they just haven't gotten there yet (more likely the latter, IMO).
This has replaced Crosswords as main treadmill activity (at least, for now).
|3 years 3 weeks ago||Going 3-2 means...||
...winning two of these:
That should be enough.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||I agree completely...||
A few examples that I noticed:
|3 years 6 weeks ago||Wow....I think that people are underestimating...||
...how much work lies ahead in this offensive transition.
IMO, getting 7 wins would be a significant accomplishment.
This would be a good question to ask again after the spring game, and seeing if it looks like chaos or football.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||Yes, but...||
...the athletic department is still fully accountable for its actions to the people of the State of Michigan through the Regents, regardless of the source of their funds. You can bet your last dollar that when David Brandon was a Regent, he would have had no problem demanding an expanation for anything from the AD.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||The only explanation that makes sense to me...||
...is that he is planning to hire his brother (Jon), but can't until the Bears are done with their season.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Hmmmm.....||
I couldn't get the FF extension loaded..."download error" from the source site...
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Anything like this for Firefox?||
This looks like a Chrome-specific plug-in...is that right?
Anything equivalent for FF users? Just asking....
|3 years 7 weeks ago||One more "Yesssss!!!"||
|3 years 7 weeks ago||In the finest Freep tradition...||
...this is simply regurgitation of old conversation....not a quote from the Governor (or anyone else, for that matter).
Could it happen someday? Sure.
Is there any reason to think that it is even under serious consideration? Not that I can see.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||How about...||
...some hockey flavor in the next banner?
|3 years 7 weeks ago||I don't recall that that this team...||
...has played two lousy games in a row so far this year. Next game is NU...will be tough, but winnable with the kind of effort shown against Kansas and OSU.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Nowhere to go but up...||
...oh, wait...that's what I thought about the defense after 2009...
Well, aside from FG kicking, the other parts of ST should be manageable, so if by some miracle we manage to not lose Goudis, then there might be hope.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Never had Costco beer...||
....but their steaks and chops are first-rate....
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Yes, please....||
...a new banner would be good for the soul...
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Fierce Pragmatist for me....||
...and I think that we are way more than 1%, of course ;)
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Execution matters...||
If you can get all 11 guys to execute their assignments almost all of the time, that's going to win a lot, regardless of schemes, etc., even without the very best talent. Add players with top-end athletic ability and now your are talking about championships.
