|17 weeks 3 days ago||The last Michigan possession said it all about this team ...||
... they had no quit, kept moving to free themselves for good looks, found the open man (twice), working their asses off for multiple offensive boards, and did not indulge in hero ball. And they tied the game, even if the ball went in off of a Kentucky hand.
A year after making the final, they made the Elite 8. Those are the the makings of a Top-10 program. And that is all we can ask for as fans. After that, it's the just the luck of the bounce sometimes in the tournament.
Here's to the ball soon bouncing Beilein's way.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||He seems to appreciate what he has ...||
Whatever he decides, he seems to have good perspective and appreciate what he has. This encapsulates why I still prefer college ball, even though the level of play is far lower:
“Once you leave college you’re never going to be a part of a real team anymore. Guys are playing for contracts, for their families and everything. We’re actually one team that doesn’t care. We don’t care who scores or we don’t care who gets the credit. We are just out there to play basketball for each other.”

He hasn't failed, he's just found 10 things that won't happen.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Go Whew!! So happy for Morgan ...||
... that the memory of this game will be the late charge call. After the monster game he had, would have royally sucked if the play a possession or two earlier, where he fumbled the ball out of bounds, had been his last contribution. Especially since he was dunking home from those kind of drive and dishes all game (I sense a Beilein plan there).
In the spirit that an excellent MGoBlog diarist recently wrote, "remember those two consecutive NCAA tournaments that Jordan Morgan drew late-game charges against teams in orange to help "M" advance?
|18 weeks 3 days ago||He joins the line of greats....||
Coach B seems to be about helping build something bigger than himself, with credit and subs due to all. I think he'd fit right in with this group:
And he seems equally at home in more casual, contemporary, Michigan coaching company:
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Today we are all Mercer-naries!!!||
Glad to be conscripted to the Duke-dooming army!
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Not drowning, but waving...||
Goodbye, Aaron. Goodbye.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Gritty and GIF- tastic!!!||
I'll always remember Craft this way. Could not have scripted a better ending.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Robinson may just be the x-factor in March...||
Hitting meaningful threes against Indiana in the regular season closer, v. Illinois yesterday, coming out of the gate strong today.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||But our slugging percentage looks to be higher and rising ...||
One whiff (Rodriguez), one grand slam (Yost), and one double off the top of the wall (Beilein) that may be ruled a homer on review.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Better to have Izzo as a little girl ...||
... but I upvoted both.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Take one of the coolest things in the world (Jimi), add Ohio ...||
... and it's lame. That's the point. Thad's an imposter. I think Jimi would understand.
Also, more literally, just a play on this image from above in the thread:
|19 weeks 5 days ago||Matta, Bold As Douche|
|19 weeks 5 days ago||I looked for Zoolander before Tropic Thunder / Simple Jack...||
And Dodgeball. Crean has a definite Stiller-ness to him.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||This thread ma, ma, ma-kes me happy ...|
|20 weeks 1 day ago||I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now ...||
Yes, young MGoBoard wise. Oldish, otherwise, which is why I'm still getting the hang of this photoshop / posting stuff. Not here to waste anyone's time or hurt their heads unnecessarily with one-man in-jokes. Won't be stifled, but will be more deliberate ... especially when sleep deprived.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Just a Monday late work night burn-out looking for distraction..||
Unfortunately. But maybe I'll try and just order in some LSD-laced dinner from Florida next time.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Who made the YMCA ball comment?||
Hadn't caught that particular line of BS.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||Unless they're '89 Illinois playing Glen Rice and Co...||
... in the Final Fucking Four.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||I'd prefer to see the opposite result ...||
... the lower Staee go, in esteem and NCAA seeding, the better. OSU are already down, and we should punk them in the B1G.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, they were always UP to NO GOOOOOOOD!!||
|20 weeks 5 days ago||They may have been ...||
... but I always think of Tripp (and Vada) as the pre-cursors of Michigan becoming DB "U". They were followed (not in order) by Woodson, Leon Hall, Ty Law and other who got much more NFL draft notice and air time.
Marcus I will always love for the David Boston Massacre, so I bent the rules on that.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Can anyone point me to the Bo tribute michgoblue mentions?||
Would like MOAR title-worthy Michigan man encomiums on this Friday...
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Remember that Post about the Two-Time B1G B-Ball Champion?||
Excellent read. MGoBlog does not disappoint.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Marcus Ray, Tripp Welborne ...||
But I have a thing for hard-hitting, non-Heisman winning, d-backs.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Yesyesnononononononoooalright (LOL, Stauskas)||
Was he just trying to prove with that balloon to GRIII on the baseline that he could make the same crazy inbounds pass Caris did at the death v. Purdue?
|21 weeks 1 day ago||Hey, Banner Banner Banner Banner ...||
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Horfeldt sounds dirty ...||
... I like it.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Tough Wallpaper Choice||
Between levitating Stauskus and levitating GRIII. The Dakich Can-Can Dance decided it.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||The first M b-ball game I saw was Gary Grant ...||
... leading the Wolverines to victory against Syracuse on the Crisler court. Think that was '86. Already had my heart set on Ann Arbor, but that game put a cherry on top. Matriculated in '87.
