- Brady gets until year 5 to recruit
- Michigan hires Jim Harbaugh as the HC. Brady steps down to the DL position. Sort of what Fickell did at ohio.
- Harbaugh hits the ground running with the amazing recruiting classes

This weekend can blow me. Literally, just unzip my pants and gurgle.
Wow. Started off so promising. And then football just ruined it.
This is the second time we've been upset by these fuckers. They ruined the 1977 NCAA Tournament run also.
But hey, women's soccer! Good for the ladies, they're dominating out there. Could win it all.

The Ed Martin-Webber family relationship began prior to Chris coming to Michigan. His father was accepting the money when Chris was 12(?) and up.
Nobody should blame Jalen for taking money. He was a poor, inner city kid and came from a low income household growing up without his dad. Same thing with Traylor & Taylor. Both inner city kids. If your mom or dad is struggling financially at home, and you're a teenager being offered wads of cash. You're going to take it and not care about NCAA rules. You're worried about what you're going to eat, what you're to wear.
Now Chris, he went to a private school so I'm not sure why his dad was accepting the money/gifts.

The 1989 team did one better than the 2013 team--they won the national championship.
The average fan can't name the starting lineup for that team. But anyone who has watched college basketball for a long time can name the 1992 & 1993 Michigan starting lineup.

Adult only by law. Have you matured and gained wisdom since you were 18? I hope so because I sure as hell know I wasn't an adult at 18 years old. My head was still spinning with all of the changes going on around me.
Jalen had an interesting quote when MSC said the banners weren't going back up-
"Should I do like most of its former BBallers & never return?"
He has a point. Gary Grant, Roy Tarpley, Maceo Baston, Rob Pelinka, Daniel Horton, Rickey Green, Sean Higgins? Where you at?
That's always been a disturbing fact for me. The only former players I can recall seeing return (besides the 1989 reunion in 2009), are Cazzie, Phil Hubbard and Glen Rice. The football and hockey alums are like a big family. There is so much disconnect with the basketball alums, it's sad.

"And, really, we have a great team and a great-character coach who does things the right way. Those kids put a banner in the rafters that won't be taken down because some of them were on the take. And we're still talking about the Fab Five?"
That just goes to show you how much the Fab Five means to this program. You ask an outsider what's the first thing they think of when you mention Michigan Basketball, and 9/10 times they will say the Fab Five. The black shoes, black socks, the trash talk, the street ball-style. It was a cultural revolution and they changed basketball forever.
If all this crap didn't happen, I guarantee you that Chris Webber's jersey would be hanging in the rafters at Crisler. Webber is arguably the greatest player here in the shot clock era. He was a man among boys out there.
I don't blame Chris for being upset about how he was treated. I'd be pissed off too if my face in the record books was just a blank box, and there was a huge blank spot on the wall at Crisler where my picture was when I worked so hard for that program. From what I understand, the relationship with Ed Martin started out through a young age when his father was accepting the gifts. You mean to tell me you wouldn't take a couple thousand dollars at 18 years old? You're a liar if you say no.
He made a mistake as a youth. That doesn't make him an evil person.
Both parties need to acknowledge their mistakes and work together and finally put some closure on things, so we aren't still bickering over this another 10 years from now.

Was it Chris Webber who fired Steve Fisher?
Was it Chris Webber who did NOT hire Brian Dutcher, who deserved the job, and instead promote an unproven assistant Brian Ellerbe to head coach?
Was it Chris Webber who let the facilities go to shit?
The answer to all of the those questions is a big, fat NO. You can blame the incompetence of the athletic department for problems during those years.
I can name a bunch of programs who were busted with major violations and did not go through what this basketball program has because their athletic department did not fail THEM.

Fuck rich rod. He was blown out of games because of no defense.
Defense is what kept Michigan in this game today. And pretty much all of their losses under Hoke.

This is what made me want to throw something at my TV.
On the drive where Michigan kicked the FG to go up 13-10:
1st & 10: Derrick Green rush, negative yards
2nd & 12ish: Derrick Green RUSH, nothing
3rd & 12ish: Devin Gardner 6yd scramble
4th: Field Goal
Get the fuck out of Ann Arbor, Borges. You are absolute garbage.
