I literally cannot help but smile when I see Denard's smile. And Devin is no slouch himself in that regard. Couple of great ambassadors for the U and overall wonderful people right there.

Currently drinking their chocolate chipotle stout, called Hot Spring. If you like some heat then you may enjoy this beer. I'll probably finish off with their rye, called Riverbend Rye, which IMO holds up pretty well compared to Founders Red's Rye.

I've been there a few times and haven't been overly impressed. The IPA was decent but overall I was underwhelmed with their lineup. The smokey porter literally tastes like you are drinking smoke.
|4 days 17 hours ago||yeah, it was Utah||
One of Devin's INTs was a pass over the middle that Funchess half-heartedly reached for, only to have the ball richochet off his hand and directly to a Utah defender.

It would be a pretty major shock if Jaylen Brown came to Michigan. On the other hand the chatter continues to make it sound like Caris is coming back, which would be monumental.

User cobra14 made a dickish comment, one that can only be seen on the app, so it appears that the other replies are responding to Landry, which is not the case.
Enjoy talking to yourself, cobra.

Looks that way. Sounds like we will find out very soon if IT'S HAPPENING.
EDIT: Or not, per the above post.

They're #18 on Kenpom which would be a 5-seed, and Bracket Matrix has them as the last #4 right now. If they lose to UVA (not crazy) and bow out somewhat early in the ACC Tournament (also not crazy) then I think it's a real possibility.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||IMO, they won't make it to||
IMO, they won't make it to the second weekend. They're in that 7-10 seed range and I don't see them beating a 1 or a 2 aside from maybe Nova or Gonzaga (if they get a 2).
As much as I despise Calipari, it would be hilarious to watch Kentucky put a beatdown on Izzo.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Louisville?||
I don't see it. They have no wins of value in the four games that Jones has missed. They seem ripe for a 5/12 upset.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Also, the refs missed McIntosh||
Also, the refs missed McIntosh bear-hugging MAAR on that fateful inbounds. Oh well.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||He'll be fine||
He's a playmaker, after all.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Edit||
Apparently the inbounds call was correct not to be called. My mistake.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Game ball to the zebras.||
Referees missed the blatant inbounding infraction on Northwestern in the first OT as well as a bear hug of Rahk by McIntosh on the inbounds that was ruled out on Zak. Two awful misses that most likely would have sealed the game for Michigan in each instance.
That said, fuck you, Tre Demps. Fuck you.

I came to this party late so all the correct answers have probably already been given. However, I promise I took the time to answer each one before I moved on to the comments.
EDIT: I didn't realize that the official mailing address of Rutgers was New Brunswick. I always thought it was Piscataway. So make that eight Big Ten schools with cities with two names.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Miles||
I know it's been a disappointing year but I really doubt that Nebraska fires Miles after only three total seasons and only one year removed from its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1998. If they totally bottom out next season then I would agree that improvement would absolutely be needed going into the following year, but talk of him being canned "very, very soon" seems pretty farfetched to me.

|4 weeks 5 days ago||I am not surprised to see Nebraska regress this season||
They did quite well in the no expectations, underdog role last season, very similar to Michigan in 2008-2009. It's a different story when you start the year ranked, and people are writing about you as a dark horse contender to win the Big Ten. For a program that hadn't been to the Big Dance since 1998, the expectation of being a "shoo-in" to return has obviously been too much for them to handle.
Petteway has been killing Nebraska with heroball and terrible shot selection. He shoots 48% from two, which isn't bad, but hits just 32% from deep, with a near 1:1 distribution of 2s (209) and 3s (189). By comparison, his ratio of 2s to 3s last season was nearly 2:1 (280 2s to 147 3s) as well as a supremely better FT rate (82% to 70%).

Things got a little hairy there for a minute, but man was it awesome to see the boys pull this one out! It's always a good day when OSU loses; it's even better when it comes at the hands of Michigan!

Gallon probably isn't the best example of breakaway speed seeing as he was often tracked down from behind. Your main point of Michigan being a slow team last season still stands, however.

I ate a Shoney's in Prattville, Alabama (home of Keith Washington) two days after NSD, so the experience is still fresh in my mind.
The waitstaff was very friendly and courteous (it's the South, so duh). I ate grits. I heard "y'all" a lot. The end.
