If McGary leaves, Michigan will only have 3 players from the 2013 national runner-up team (and 0 starters).

Why doesn't Beilein ever put a person on the in-bounds man?

Oregon should put up at least 75 on Texas.

|1 year 3 days ago||My opinion of this is largely||
My opinion of this is largely based on when the games are going to be available to claim. If they put the "start time" when I am in class, then I will be furious.
A positive aspect of this is that students who can't wait in line before the game (for instance, they could have class in the afternoon) will still be able to go to it. While it would have been better for them to stop selling tickets once they met capacity, this could have been a lot worse.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||I liked it.||
I was initally a huge critic of the switch to the GA system, but, unlike basketball, the ticket office and the event staff seemed to have control of the situation.
I got to the stadium at about 11:53, and the line was still pretty small at that point. Everything seemed orderly and I ended up in section 31, row 3 (technically row 5, since the first two rows are "A" and "B"). Plus, since I was sitting on the aisle, I had no problem seeing the entire field.
My first two years at Michigan were in section 33, row 49, and section 33, row 32, so I was extremely happy with my seats.
From where I was sitting, the student section looked like the fullest it has ever been at kickoff since I've been a student. It'll be interesting to see how this whole thing works for the Akron game in two weeks. Not only is Akron a horrible team (they went 1-11 last year), but it's also a noon kickoff. I would imagine that a person could show up an hour before kickoff and still get a pretty decent seat.

Coincidentally, I'm currently on vacation in Gettysburg and today I went to see the East Cavalry Battlefield where Custer (whose soldiers were called the "Wolverine Brigade") and Generall Gregg fought Stuart. It, without a doubt, has the best Michigan monument in Gettysburg, although the location is far-away from the rest of the city and the battlefield. If anyone goes to Gettysburg, I highly recommend taking the 12 minute drive to see it.

It's really been a long-way back for Bonderman. After not playing at all in 2011, he blew out his elbow at the start of 2012 and needed Tommy John surgery. I wish him the best of luck.

FWIW, sirens just went off on the Ann Arbor campus.

|1 year 23 weeks ago||Team 96||
Many players and coaches referred to this team as "Team 96." Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't remember anyone ever using this term before to describe the team.
In my opinion, like football, this needs to become a thing.

Don't let the teams huddle when you are checking the tape.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Why in the world||
Why in the world would they show a clip of Webber taking the timeout while asking us to support their project? They realize that making Wolverine fans angry will not help them get donations, right?
|1 year 25 weeks ago||1989||
I don't believe this has been mentioned yet, but when we won the national championship in 1989, we defeated North Carolina in the Sweet 16. I certainly wouldn't mind history repeating itself.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||I hate this team.||
Neg away. I don't care. I am sick of this team having an opportunity to win the B1G title, only to squander it away by nonchalant, sloppy play. Two times in a week they knew they could win the title if they won out, only to lose the next game to a bad team on the road; both times blowing double digit leads. They don't play with their heads in the game, they don't play adequate defense, and they don't rebound.
I won't "keep this in perspective," or "feel happy for Purdue." We should have easily won this game, only for them to fall apart once again and let the team come all the way back and take a big lead. They take horrible, unnecessary shots, and let the other team go on long runs due to this. When we still had a big lead earlier this game, every player seemed to just take the ball, run to the hoop, and take a shot no matter how contested it was.
I am sick and tired of watching this team waste their talent away by not playing as smart and as hard as they can. How many more "wake-up calls" will it take before this team starts to care?
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Iran is mentioned as well||
Iran is mentioned as a possible location on the very next slide, making me doubt the sincerity of the whole slideshow.
Also, they mention Notre Dame Stadium as a possible host. I actually like that idea. Where better to host a fake event than at a stadium that is built on myths?
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Nobody told my class||
It's interesting how the University was concerned enough to send police officers with assault rifles into the building, but apparently not concerend enough to notify the classrooms about what was happening. I have a class from 11:30 - 1 pm in Mason Hall and had absolutely no idea that all of this was going on.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Two more rounds||
There are two more rounds left. All we have to worry about at this point is making the final four teams/players.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||75 - 51 Michigan||
Michigan wins 75 - 51.

Yes, the vote totals reset after each round.

This is from EA Sports' website (http://www.easports.com/ncaa-football/news/article/notre-dame-wins-first...):
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Took the lead||
In the hour since SloFlaWolverine's update, Michigan has gained a 518 vote lead over Alabama (8,237 to 7,719, respectively). The Aggies are still at third at 3,987 votes.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Last year Arkansas||
Memories of last year's Arkansas game are flooding back into my head. Basically the same exact finish.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||This is what I was afraid of||
This is what I was afraid of; they claw their way back, and once they get the tie, they start taking dumb shots that got them into the hole in the first place and Ohio rolls out to a big lead once again.
