This is very sad news. RIP.

Since 2008, Michigan hockey, Michigan basketball, the Red Wings and the Tigers have all made it to the championship game/series only to lose. That's quite amazing to think about. Amazing that they all have been there, but also amazing that none of them won it.

Proof that statistics lie: Tigers offense is still rated among the top 5 in baseball (#5 in runs and #2 in OPS).
|1 week 5 days ago||I absolutely agree with this.||
I absolutely agree with this. One run leads are blown more often than a great defensive play saves them. Unless the guy is a complete butcher in the field, these moves rarely make sense. Especially taking out a hot hitter for a poor hitter without much of a defensive upgrade!

Very happy but wow - Miggy is not Miggy right now and Nathan still appears to suck. I hope Sanchez's injury isn't serious.

Unless your the Nats. After all, he gave them Fister for basically nothing.

I would love to see Michigan in Omaha one day.

I hope you're right. Right now my confidence is in the basketball team which doesn't make sense considering all the quality they just lost. I was quietly hopeful for hockey last season, particularly after opening with a win against BC and going 1-0-1 against UNH. Then the bottom seemed to fall out in the GLI and we struggled the rest of the way. Which is weird because for most of my life, hockey always seemed to play their best after the GLI.

There's the rub. I have loyalty to the sports TEAM. How anyone can have loyalty to an individual player is what I don't get. If Scherzer leaves the Tigers, I'll still be a Tiger fan, but I won't care how Scherzer is fairing with his new team.

You are so right. He's making great moves in Dallas. I'd love to bring him back.

We need to seriously look at replacing Holland. His last good move was the one year deal for Hossa. And that was flawed because he then decided to offer a long-term deal to Franzen instead of Hossa during that season.

I'm sorry to hear this. My condolences.

Beilein, hands down.

The beginning of the end for Holland. Now he just needs to sign Cleary and I'll officially start shopping for pitchforks.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Exactly. The NCAA argument||
Exactly. The NCAA argument is that they don't need to pay the players because they benefit from the free education. If they're not even getting that, then what?

The Wings are notorious for letting prospects develop so being picked by the Wings would be good for him to have a few seasons as a Wolverine, right? I hope that's the case.

|8 weeks 4 days ago||I'll withhold judgment on DB||
I'll withhold judgment on DB until after this season. If the team underperforms again, I expect DB to do the right thing and use some of that revenue he's bringing in to go out and spend some of it on an elite coach, rather than going on the cheap because a coach would walk to Michigan for the opportunity. And if the team actually does well? Then I'll applaud him for having the patience to allow Hoke his 4th year, something I was unsure that I'd do after last year's abomination of a season and pathetic bowl performance.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||You are so money with this||
You are so money with this comment. Absolutely agree. Everything is fresh and no negativity yet; however $70 for end zone seating to watch us hopefully annihilate App St is too rich for my blood. I'll enjoy it from the comfort of my couch.

I wouldn't know. I've never been on RCMB. But apparently you frequent it. How nice for you.

This. And take mediocre prospect Robbie Ray with you. Still can't believe that trade was made by a team hoping to win a World Series this year!
|9 weeks 5 days ago||It's a good thing Beilein||
It's a good thing Beilein knows him and is the one who actually extends the offers rather than those of is who have never seen any of these guys play live.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Loss of velocity and||
Loss of velocity and inability to throw fastball for strikes consistently (seems like it's always 2-0 on every hitter). I certainly wish we still had Fister, but DD values hard throwers more than pitchers.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Avila may not rate as poor||
Avila may not rate as poor overall compared to other catchers but the true indictment of the Tigers is that he hits 5th regularly in the lineup. If he is the #5 hitter, then this lineup is in trouble.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Bingo. Fister is AT WORST a||
Bingo. Fister is AT WORST a number 3 big league starter on almost every other team (he was a number 4 in Motown only). And Dombrowski got a utility guy who he gave away for nothing (literally since Lombardozzi was traded for Alex Gonzalez who we no longer have), a decent reliever in Krol, and a pitching prospect in Robbie Ray who wasn't even among the top 10 prospects in the Nats' organization. I'm a little afraid if Dombrowski were to start selling off some of our stars he might get nothing but a bag of balls in return. He might be able to fleece others when trading our prospects (acquiring Sanchez and the original deal to acquire Fister, plus, of course Miggy), but this Fister trade is still a head scratcher for a team that has World Series aspirations this year.

I've been saying this all season as well. People view him as still having upside, but I think we've seen what he is: a slightly better version of Brian Hunter.

Not to be on the side of the NCAA, but if they can't bring up non-revenue sports because no one is forcing them to offer these sports, then my question is, what is the purpose of Title IX? Assuming that football and men's hoops are the only money makers at most schools, and we're looking at 85 and 13 scholarships for those sports, then doesn't Title IX require 98 women's scholarships, which would be in non-revenue sports? Thus, the government is, in fact, requiring schools to offer those sports and they should be able to bring them up in their argument. Or do I have a complete misunderstanding of this (which is certainly possible)?
