Everything. Cam and Aaron are the same guy....just different color skin. One is a "thug" despite his charity work and big heart.....the other is just a "bad ass". Kind of like white hockey players being lauded as tough for fighting and black football players being labeled thugs for on field altercations. The double standard is ever so real and it pisses many people including myself the hell off. Especially when people try to act like it's not there.

This is Michigan. People are chiming in with the Beilein is a good man comment. He is and great....but we're trying to also win at the highest level...so let's also get that done. We appear to be a program that had a 3 year run of prominence. Not sure when or if our prominence is coming back.
|2 days 2 hours ago||People are worried because we aren't recruiting athletes.||
Chicago coaches are calling us a "white boy program". That's problematic because that image permeates and makes it impossible to recruit those areas in the future. Hence why we are in Onsted instead of Detroit and the Windy City for our bigs....
|2 days 3 hours ago||Wow.||
I guess I have to watch another program now. That or just settle for Mid-Major level product. And also...Beilein has a great job....he doesn't "work harder" than anyone in particular. He is getting thrashed in recruiting year in and year oit....so he certainly doesn't work harder than Thad Matta or Tom Izzo. We need to stop with the excuses and start with the solutions. Stop apologizing for the man when he is obviously not getting it done at the moment. We did lose a title game a few years ago. Unfortunately major college sports isn't horse shoes and his teams have been regressing as of late with no real hope for an elite future. This is NOT and should NOT be acceptable.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Athletes can play D.||
They can stay in front of people. They don't look lost at the top of a 1-3-1. Beilein needs athletes to run that defense. We don't have an athletic roster overall from top to bottom. We should....this is Michigan...not Wisconsin. I hate our team is trending more and more Wisconsin....
|2 days 3 hours ago||Wow. So much to comment on honestly.||
Let's start with this. Injuries have decimated this team again. 3 straight years with awful injury luck. The early draft entries on top of this have derailed what was a top 10 program.
The next issue is RECRUITING. We can dance around it all day long. The Football program just signed a #4 class and there is no excuse for the Hoops program to be "settling" on guys like they have been. (Xavier...you are omitted) We should be recruiting the highest level athletes and getting their signatures. It's not fair to knock any of the kids that play for Michigan or will play....buy Michigan should get the pick of the litter.
Our staff has grown a bit stale in development. Regressions in Chatman....Dawkins....Doyle have all been evident. Zak Irvin has treaded water as has MAAR. Duncan and Donnal have seen improvement and DJ Wilson is still somehow not playable. He was a top 100 recruit.....this is on the staff.
Coaching....Beilein has had success in this offense with an elite ball dominant guard. Without that guy...this offense...like many others becomes inert. We don't have post presence and can't play inside out because of his recruiting and Bakari's uninspiring B1G development. There needs to be at minimum...a shake up. Another year of getting blown out by Sparta should see the ball rolling on a major change.
Sparty has passed us and is lapping us. Theyre embarrassing us on the court and recruiting circles around us. They're recruiting Detroit. ..and Chicago...places were not able to go and grab elite talent anymore. This bodes awfully bad for the future and the talent gap is widening if I speak honestly about it. MSU is gaining steam and we are treading water. We need a new recruitin approach ASAP. We need to be able to recruit Detroit and Chicago. We should dominate there....no excuse not to be.
The last issue I see is the soft overall play. We need a chip on our shoulder. Our bigs need to play nastier. We need to recruit some Mahorns...and Ben Wallaces.....instead it's Darko after Darko. Whoever is leading the charge with the B1G recruiting has missed over and over again and there needs to be a major reassessment there. We aren't competitive in the paint and there is no excuse for it.
In summary, Beilein is not going to be fired at this time. He has brought us to a higher level....like Amaker brought us up a notch. The question is...how is this program tracking? Are we progressing? We deserve to be a top 10 program. Is Beilein going to have us there in the next few years? If not...what are we doing? We didn't settle in football and shouldn't in hoops. We need to bring the SWAG and fun back to Ann Arbor. We need to be able to recruit Detroit. We need to be able to recruit Chicago. We need to not get smacked by Michigan State 4 times in a row. If Beilein cannot turn the ship around quickly, you will see AD Wade make a move. Michigan doesn't settle anymore. Michigan shouldn't settle. The university deserves the very best possible basketball program and whoever it takes to cleanly coach them there.
|6 days 7 min ago||You're way off.||
Demi-God? The kid was a 4th string qb at the time. So .....no. If the girl was at all found to be credible...there would havebeen formal charges. There never was. You can blame whoever you want and run with whatever you'd like. There were no facts to support the claim and it was found to be bogus. FSU had to eventually pay the girl because that's how our society is setup. If Jimbo believed that the kid committed that crime...he would've been kicked off the team. Just like several star players before him were kicked off. It's really funny to see people rum their mouths with absolutely zero knowledge of the program or how things actually are. TMZ or ESPN writes an article and all the trolls looking for anti-FSU crumbs go crazy...like piranhas in blood tinged water. Come on...do better.
|6 days 1 hour ago||Truth hurts.||
Some of you guys want him to be guilty so bad it's sickening. Rape is THE worst crime ever. It was proven to have not happened several times over. Maybe if you checked into the accuser a tad more...it would make sense to you. Women lie about rape. An allegation is an allegation until proven otherwise. Everyone who jumped the gun on this should be ashamed of themselves. You're essentially hoping and convincing yourself of a heinous crime happening when it didnt.
|6 days 1 hour ago||All who comment on this should make themselves privy...||
To all of the facts. I know it's been enjoying vogue to do the whole "FSU is bad and comprised of heathens" thing...but it's been inaccurate from inception. This girl lied. She was found to have agregious inconsistencies over and over again in multiple court procedings. She was found with multiple semen samples in her at the time. She was a self proclaimed cleat chaser. She continued to go to games after the alleged incident posting about "hot"football players. She originally described the man she was with on the night she alleged the crime as 5ft9 with dreads and about 180 lbs. Not close to 6ft5 230. Let's stop with this already because it's old tired and been run through the mud by ESPN, who has an ulterior motive to slander FSU. (Major threat to SEC supremacy and conversely. ..their pockets) The misinformation has been run with for way to long and of course the university ends up settling, because what choice do they have? The sad part of this deal is that it reinforces the incentive to run with a lie. The girl lied and is getting paid. It's a damn travesty. Shameful.
|1 week 2 days ago||If we beat MSU this Saturday. ...||
We will have an identical record overall and be 3 full games ahead of them in B1G play. How are we behind them in seeding? Makes no sense. Just Izzo....
|1 week 2 days ago||So 1 game is the difference between a 3 seed and a 7 seed.||
Got it. When we beat MSU this Saturday....that makes us a 3 seed right? Or is the answer just Tom Izzo?
|2 weeks 20 hours ago||This is not good.||
Dabo sells the hell out of Clemson. This will be a fun weekend.....
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Rich Rod should get him||
Viramontes would be a rock star in Arizona.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Hail yes!||
Harbaugh gets it. The big signing day splash will rock the headlines and create more momentum!
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||You had to expect this.||
Harbaugh is doing what the sharks do and what's necessary to get us where we want to go. We need high end talent. Being honest with kids is moral and that appears to be what he's doing. Telling guys that you may not play is honest. Michigan is a tough place to see the field and conversely a tough offer to receive. I think when the dust settles....this class will be the best in 15 years at Michigan.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||DJ Khalid haha!||
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I think there is more of this to come.||
In Green's case...he's been gone since Penn State week. Once Sione started lining up 7 yards in the backfield, it was a wrap.
|4 weeks 20 hours ago||Beilein is going to have Michigan in the hunt.||
The issues are recruiting at a Michigan level and that is still a MAJOR issue. I think more attention needs to be focused on Bakari and what he's done with his bigs. Donnal has surprisingly turned into a legitimate starter while the rest have tapered into mere members of the team. That is not okay and needs to be rectified. Beating the #3 team is great but many...myself included want to get to the point where WE are ranked #3 again. We were just there a few years ago. The aforementioned issues prevent us from reaching that goal. However, this was a Hell of a win and huge for our tournament hopes. Beilein is a great basketball coach and he won a huge game tonight. The entire program should feel great as well as us fans!
|4 weeks 21 hours ago||Duncan cannot simply stand in the corner.||
One of the guards is going to have to beat one on one defense.....it will free up looks from deep.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Michigan State.||
May make the Columbus trip also.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||This kid looks good.||
We may have a new starter in the slot. He likens his game to Steve Smith and enjoys blocking. If he can gain strength and a few pounds over the spring....I see this kid starting in the slot. He looks like a more physical Roy Roundtree.
|5 weeks 2 hours ago||I've heard some very positive things about O'korn.||
I think he wins the job unless we get another Homerun QB transfer. Offense will should be even better next year.
|5 weeks 18 hours ago||How Urban gonna grab an MGoblog account....||
...and vent his frustrations out on us homo-style?! Cezical....did 11W crash or something?
|5 weeks 20 hours ago||Mass Exodus is underway.||
Michigan has a real shot at this thing next year. Beauty of it is everything can change in a year aND Michigan can not only win the B1G next year....they could start a run.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||...............||
Both of these kids look like solid basketball players. Neither close to elite. MSU is bringing in Elite players. This is becoming troublesome. Harbaugh is bringing in Elite players....so it's not a Michigan can't pull elite talent issue.....
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Mass Exodus is underway.||
Just like we talked about this weekend. Ohio State has very good talent. They do not have this level of talent waiting in the wings though. Michigan can take this conference next season. The talent gap will be bridged almost immediately if we close this class out strong.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Chuck is a quality high level coach.||
He must absolutely love Michigan to come as a "consultant" lol.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Mass Exodus is underway.||
Ohio has great talent but they will not be near the team they were this season. Their class is about even with Michigan's and I will venture to say that we close better than they do.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Which SEC Team will be there?||
The EAST lacks an elite team. The West will be a dog pile. Imagine if Bama lost another one of their close calls this year....they would be out. I don't think Bama will be back and don't see another team that projects to be Elite next season.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Brandon Peters is going to be good.|
