|3 days 14 hours ago||Leg/ass room||
The north endzone (visitor section) seats of Kinnick are the smallest I've ever attempted to park my ass in. I'm a skinny guy with narrow shoulders and even I was over my "allotment." Made the Big House feel like a La-Z-Boy.

As opposed to the guy who routinely goes into threads for the sole purpose of telling people how little he cares for said thread topic?
Give me a break.

Agree with WD, having a bye in week two is pointless. Making your guys play 11 consecutive weeks without a breather seems suboptimal.

The 9-game conference schedule started last season. Michigan played host to Wisconsin, traveled to Iowa, and hosted Illinois from the West. This season, it's the aforementioned trips to Wisconsin and Purdue, plus Minnesota at home.

I salute you, good man.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Holy shit||
That Collins foul is mind-bogglingly terrible.

Akron is where LTT was last season. AFAIK, I haven't heard anything on a destination for him yet.

Would you say it's...endless?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Yep||
Shit, meet Wall. Wall, Shit.

Starting to seem like sentiments from him can be taken with a boulder of salt.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||They are still Adidas||
Here is an article that talks about his comments on the subject (from 2014).
|3 weeks 20 hours ago||All of the feels, man||
All of them. What a fantastic piece and a fitting tribute. Best of luck in all that you do, Derrick!
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Brilliant.||
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Spring training stats||
His triple slash line is .143/.207/.143 (4-for-27) with 8 Ks, 1 BB (plus a HBP), and zero XBHs (as evidenced by his SLG matching his AVG).

Don't think that Alford was going to come and Scott Drew is basically a Tom Crean clone -- great recruiter, suspect in-game coach.
Not sure Andrew Miller is qualified to coach basketball, but I definitely won't question his pitching abilities.

|3 weeks 4 days ago||Yep, two-game losing streak to end the season||
Upset by Northwestern in a virtual home game and then soundly defeated by Xavier.

And potentially a third if not for freakin' Aaron Harrison.

The article I linked to is from 2007.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||0-9*||
In a way, they went 0-9 because they beat zero teams with a winning record last season.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Quick rundown of participants from what I've found||
Doesn't appear to be a comprehensive list out yet but from various university press releases, I found:
In the process of searching I ran across a blast from the past on, of all places, the Georgia State athletics website:
|3 weeks 5 days ago||OK||
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Nice!||
I will very interested to see how Derrick stacks up against other top shooters from the senior ranks.
Also, that press release gave me a twinge of sadness while running down his accomplishments, notably that he finished ONE assist short of 1000/500/500. Can we get the SID to retroactively attribute another dime to his name?

Shannon Brown left for the NBA after his junior season in 2006. Jason Richardson also left school early in 2001, along with Randolph.

EDIT: The user to whom I was replying has since been banned/caved.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, that made me chuckle||
Of course at the time it didn't seem like a crazy thing to be saying.

|4 weeks 2 days ago||Well then||
I may owe Mr. Bonner an apology.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Steps in the lane||
Extra steps in the lane don't seem to matter anymore, and yeah, Michigan has benefitted from it as well (notably Wagner).
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Fouls to give||
Oregon had two fouls to give after the ball was inbounded with 9.x seconds left. A drive to the hoop most likely leads to a common foul which results in Michigan needing to inbound again with less time on the clock. Considering all the issues they've had getting the ball in I think that would have led to a worse final shot. Walton got separation and had a clean look. He hits that shot all the time. It wasn't a bad shot.
