I attended with a buddy the summer before our junior year of high school. It was Tommy Amaker's first year on the job. I don't remember seeing any UM players, at least none to get excited about. My cool story bro is finishing 2nd in the free throw contest out of 100-some kids. I went 10/10 from the line twice in a row, which left me tied with only one other kid. We squared off while everyone watched. He went 10/10 again. I was 9/9 and on my 10th shot I faded away a bit and missed. Still can't get over it.

This morning, the cheapest ticket on Stubhub was around $98. Just checked right now, and cheapest ticket jumped to $143. Anyone have any guesses what a ticket on the street would cost?

Over/under on players who declare after this season? I'm putting it at .5 players. And I'll take the under.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||STAEE||
Would anyone mind explaining where the "STAEE" spelling came from, and its meaning/significance? I've been too embarrassed to ask for the longest time, but I must know. Thanks
|26 weeks 6 days ago||How has Caris gotten this bad??||
He is a liability on both ends right now.

Wow. Just wow.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||GR3||
I know it's illegal to criticize a student athlete, but can someone tell me what GR3 does well, other than dunk?
|45 weeks 4 hours ago||Meh...I'm only going if there's signed Manziel memorabilia.||
HI - Hop In
Seriously though, this sounds awesome. If my wife wasn't super pregnant with triplets, I'd be in, no question. Can't wait to read about it.
|45 weeks 1 day ago||Ridiculous||
Jabrill needs to send this clip to Fournette and write, "This is what I did today. But I don't want to do this at Michigan. I want YOU to do this at Michigan. I'll take care of the defense."
|45 weeks 3 days ago||If it works out that we can||
If it works out that we can rest some guys and choose our rotation, then there's no question. Scherzer and Sanchez are our two best pitchers. The only question is if you want Fister or Verlander in the third spot. Some might say that JV has the playoff experience, but that experience hasn't been all that great. It's kind of scary how much he has lost on his fastball in one year. I've got much more confidence in Max and Sanchez.

And a lot of Barry's HR's that weren't hit on the screws but still went out because of his roided up strength very well could have been just long fly ball outs if he wasn't juicing. It's impossible to say exactly what kind of numbers he would have put up if he were clean, but I'll take Miggy any day. Last I checked, Bonds never got the triple crown.
|46 weeks 3 days ago||Then why did he take them?||
I mean, if they don't help you be a better hitter, then why take the risk?
|47 weeks 3 hours ago||I had to laugh when the announcer||
Compared Roundtree to Braylon. WTF? Braylon is 3 inches taller and probably 30 lbs heavier during his UM playing days, not to mention much faster and better vertical. Roundtree was a fine WR, but comparing him to Braylon is asinine.
|48 weeks 3 days ago||I taught in two different||
I taught in two different elementary schools in SC, and both had a speech program. Q is from a very rural area, however, and so they may not have had funding for such a program. Great to see the strides he has taken.
|48 weeks 6 days ago||One SC teacher to another,||
Welcome! I taught in Richland Two and Lexington One. Whereabouts do you teach?
|48 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed||
I appreciate your level-headed response, and agree with your sentiments. Perhaps had I been as eloquent I wouldn't have been negged so much. I compared Harris to our all-time leading rusher, and somehow that was a slap in the face. All I meant to say was that I've heard about this kid since he was a freshman, and I expected him to look even faster, especially considering the level of competition he faces. I am still very pumped about his commitment and expect great things from him.
|49 weeks 11 hours ago||Simmer down please||
My description of Harris has nothing to do with the fact that we likely won't land Fournette. It's strictly based on a look at his highlight video. I didn't see him pulling away from defenders like you typically see in a potential 5-star RB. I think it's funny that you say my comment was the stupidest in a long time, then go on to compare him to Mike Hart, which is exactly what I did, and I said I'd be fine with that.
Since you asked, I think Campbell's highlight video looks amazing; great athleticism, if not a polished receiver (like to see him use his hands more to catch it).
You may now go back to being hyper-sensitive about every comment not dripping with praise.
|49 weeks 15 hours ago||Not to be a downer...||
But Damien Harris' highlight tape doesn't blow me away like, say, Fournette's. Doesn't mean he won't be a great player for us, but he just doesn't seem to fly. I did read that he ran a 4.40 recently, which surprised me. He looks like a Mike Hart type to me, which I would be absolutely fine with.

My wife and I are expecting 3 MGoBabies sometime in October. Just found out we're having two boys and a girl. Can't wait to join the fatherhood fraternity!
|51 weeks 6 days ago||Dish is the way to go||
I had Comcast for years, just recently switched to Dish Network. Night and day difference. I pay less now, and get more channels, plus DVR for my 3 TV's, and they have the Dish Anywhere app, so you can watch live TV on your phone or tablet (or watch something you DVR'd). Not to mention Comcast customer service sucks big time.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||I lived in Columbia, SC for||
I lived in Columbia, SC for the last four years, and had heard this kid's name being mentioned when he was in 7th grade, but I never got to see him play. Wow! He actually seems like he could be better than the hype. Crazy to see what he's doing as a freshman. His school, Hammond, is a private school and plays against mostly private schools that aren't known for their athletics. He's gonna destroy kids when he's a junior and senior.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||I just got back from there||
I just got back from there yesterday. Lagasse's Stadium in the Palazzo is a pretty nice setup, and the Venetian sportsbook is one of the better ones. Just make sure to get there early.

...he'd be mediocre.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||You'll never believe this...||
but Jordan Morgan missed a layup
|1 year 16 weeks ago||I used to think||
GR3 was Brent Petway with a little more skill. I was wrong. They're exactly the same.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||I'm old enough to remember||
when a Michigan player made consecutive free throws.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||He's an upperclassman...||
he must be better.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||yeah...||
that was kinda the point.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||We're hangin tough||
with em. Perhaps the Nittany Lions might get caught looking ahead to Wisconsin?
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Just because Beilein||
has greatly improved this program, doesn't mean it's unfair to question him. And right now, there's a hell of a lot that deserves questioning.
1. Does this team ever spend any time practicing against a full court press?? For god's sake, we couldn't handle the vaunted Penn State press! Every time a team presses us, we look like we've never seen this kind of thing before. With Burke at the point, there's no reason we shouldn't be making teams pay for trying to press us. Instead, IF we get it past half court, we wait for the defense to set up, instead of attacking.
2. Going along with that theme...our offense is pretty decent, but it could be even better. We should be pushing it upcourt every chance we get. That's when guys like GR3 and McGary are most effective. Off makes, off misses, we should be trying to push the tempo.
3. I HATE the way our big guys are taught to hedge and occasionally trap out top. We pick up tons of fouls 30 feet from the basket, and McGary and Horford are slow to get back to their man. When we do try and "trap" out top, it's the most token trap ever. If you're going to commit two guys 30 feet from the hoop, then go for the steal! Rip the ball away! Instead, they give the guy space and let him survey the court for a 4-on-3 advantage.
There's a lot of other stuff, but I just don't have the energy...
