Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

That's an interesting question. I'm not sure you can do a predictive model however because the biggest variable - number of returning players - gets wiped out as a factor of importance if the incoming replacement players are as good or better as those that left. With the advent of early departures I think the days of dynasty's are essentially over so every year stands basically alone with the coach being the one constant.
Look at us last year. Dominant players were Burke, Hardaway & McGary - none of which are contributing anything this year. We almost completely re-tooled and who knows how far we'll go.
You put a lot of work (obviously) into your post. I was just teasing cause it confused me - not because it was meaningless.

I grew up on Ottawa Drive in Pontiac, Michigan. After he died, Terry was buried in a small cemetary at the end of Ottawa Drive where the road ended (either Orchard Lake or Elizabeth Lake rd - cant remember which). As a kid I visited his grave cause he was a great Detroit goalie and when he got buried there it was a big deal in the old Pontiac Press.
I guess this is my wierd story bro.

I got to go to game 3 of the 1988 series against the Lakers at the Silverdome. We had split games 1 & 2 in LA so winning game 3 would've given the Pistons a huge advantadge in the series. My brother had a friend who gave us the most amazing seats (about four rows behind the Pistons bench) and we sat directly in front of the Pistorn's wives.
In the 3rd quarter of a game that had been very close the Pistons were called for some ridiculous number of offensive and off the ball violations in row and finally in the 4th Chuck Daly went absolutely nuts as the game tilted heavily to the Lakers. I can still here him screaming at some ref: "Look you purple and gold-loving mother-fuckers....if you want them to win so fucking badly take off your fucking shirt and start wearing one of their jersey's." Needless to say Chuck got the immediate Technical and tossed but his rant has stayed with me.

Not sure if you can connect the dots between post-career health issues and Menenhall's retirement announcment though. Six years in the NFL for a RB is more than the average and as stated in the article you linked he had turf-toe that limited his ability to perform.
Power backs like Rashard have a very short shelf life in the NFL which is why they've fallen out of favor as a high draft choice in the past few years.

You forgot to mention fellow Michigan alum and only defensive player to ever that Heisman Trophy thingie too. You could definitely see where a guy like that would totally ruin an impromptu Michigan basketball picture if he was in it.

He's selling cars for Miller's Chrysler/Dodge in Martinsburg, West Virginia.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Respectfully disagree. A. It||
A. It wasn't like they only had one shot at this team picture or anything and they took another "offical"one moments later it seems.
B.Anything that connects support between different sports (like the multiple shots of Denard the last few years at basketball games) I'm for.
C. He's Charles Motherfucking Woodsen. He can photobomb anybody, anywhere, doing anything athletically and I'm good with it. He's in that pantheon of Michigan greats like Tom Brady who have earned that right.
If it had been one of the Fab Five doing that I'd get the sentiment (although I'd probably really like that too) but not CMFW. Not him.

I just wanted to acknowledge how much I like your posts and the work you put into them. They are informative and thought-provoking and I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate the time you put into your the threads you create. It's noticed.

Too bad if he should win it will undoubtably be accompanied by an asterisk to explain that the only reason he won was because the far more deserving candidates at State had been injured.

BiSB you are clearly a fantastic writer and on a par with Brian in the ability to bring chills down my spine with your prose.
"But there is nothing to win tomorrow night, because Michigan has already claimed the high ground. Jordan Morgan gets a day to look around at the shiny new normal he helped to create, and to take his bow from atop the mountain.
"Remember when Mitch McGary went down and everyone panicked, but Michigan still won an outright Big Ten title?"
That is breathtakingly good writing. Thank you for composing this.

I clicked on this thread expecting a torrent of people shitting on the OP for raising an issue long dead and buried. Boy was I happily surprised.
Speculate on boys......
And for everyone asking "do we really want him" the answer is HELL FUCKING YES. 15 minutes after he was here (assuming he actually somehow comes here) nobody - including him - will give two shits how he got here.

Let me guess what our suggestions might be:
1. More and lounder Rawk Music
2. Better Wifi
3. Creating the "wow" experience (Rocket man, Beyonce halftime shows, illuminated bracelets for night games, etc)
4. Giant noodles
My guess at no point will the discussion turn to the cost of actual attendance. It seems we believe that variable to be a non-issue.

Someday LSA2000 needs to put his analytical powers to work and look at the various board topic themes that seem to dominate discussion these days. It would be interesting to look and see how the board evolves during periods of uncertainty (last days of Rich, Borges and our running game) vs times of joy (last year's basketball tourny rn & 2011 football season) and compare that to the relatively quiet times we're in right now.
Off the top of my head I would say the three topics that seeming are ALWAYS on the board somewhere at all times are the following (in no particular order):
1. PosBang threads
2. Drinking threads
3. Uniform threads
These things seem to consume us and I dont for the life of me know why.

Conterfactuals ARE fun. If you like history and want to spend hours upon hours noodling over questions like "what if Japan and succesfully invaded Hawaii in WWII" or "what if Kennedy had not been shot" or even "what if Picket's Charge" had been successful" read the book "What If".
I do believe the latest edition does consider the "what if Caris got the call" and the implications of that change.

Money quote for me on Borges:
"His system put major stress on the weakest parts of his team. His attempts to problem solve revealed further flaws in his napkin-domination approach to the game. Michigan switched between primary run schemes on a regular basis, moved young linemen to different positions, and integrated new formations and plays every week, rather than building an identity for the team to become comfortable with."
I think he neatly and far more eloquently summed up about 150 or so of my Borges-bitching posts in one paragraph.

The Browns objective is to see how far under the cap we can go. Signing players, especially good players, simply does not fit into that objective.

I dont know if Dakish can play a lick of basketball or not but giving him scholly was pure genius on Beilein's part. He simultaniously neutured one of our biggest trollers in Dad while providing much needed bench heat and support.
I was SO hoping young Dakish would get a basket last night just to hear's dad's reaction on the air.

I'm 54 and worked in sales & marketing my adult life so I know my way around a bad idea. I've had them - sold them - been told to implement them and gotten yelled at and even fired when I was unable to successfully execute them.
Take it from an expert -this is a bad idea.

The dude is brilliant. For whatever revenue he purposively left on the table by excluding OSU students he's now getting buckets of free publicity for his ap nationally. His press release, which under normal terms would get barely noticed, is now getting write-ups and commentary because of the exclusion.
Now THAT's a "Michigan Man." Find a way to profit by sticking it to the Buckeyes......
