|20 weeks 5 days ago||Thank you||
For the post that literally has me welling up. And to the under appreciated j-mo, for all the reasons u touched on. His dunk v Syracuse was so gratifying to me as a fan and had to have been euphoric for him. Just epic.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Problem here...||
Is how they were supposed to miss Novak/Douglass leadership last year and look how that turned out. We all appreciate j-mo but have faith my friend!!!

My call for the game was Michigan 72-64, then I saw a first half which was among the worst 20 minutes a team could play. Then I looked up and saw we were within 4. Amazing. OSU offense is mind bogglingly pathetic. We played a great final 14 minutes or so. Kudos to us. This team has been a revelation all year.

We need a new coach. A real coach and not a figurehead. A guy who has input on offensive play calling. Hoke has been a plus recruiter but you have to be able to coach too. I still believe Brandon screwed over RR. Hoke went 11-2 with his kids and has been declining since as we regress to Lloyd like boring brand of football.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||Caris!!!||
|36 weeks 6 days ago||Question is not..||
Did he make the right choice, cause when it comes to football of course he did, but would things have been different if Hoke and Michigan were winning in the last 6 weeks? How much did our obvious regression/lack of progress/questionable future come into play in Hand's choice? Perhaps we'll never know.

Was how good of a coach is Hoke? The recruiting seems to be going swimmingly and in college that's probably the key factor, but strategy also plays a role. This was lightly noted but I think that remains the bigger question mark. Is Brady a good to elite level hc? If so, we're in great hands.

Congratulations on a successful interview. Insightful, engaging, open, a real treat for us all. Thanks.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Perfect call...||
Dude bit the hook, the beats, Evrythang. Typical sparty
|1 year 9 weeks ago||His crew is clearly hard||
Hate to see them in broad daylight.

|1 year 10 weeks ago||Re: Burke to Pistons||
Pistons asked to interview him but NBA said no since they control the interviews. Also, yeah feel same about Pistons and Chauncey.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||The beauty of all this...||
Is how much discussion this team has generated and will continue to do o going forward. JB has a flexible unit with some guys with clear NBA level talent and some others who may eventually get there. Program is on the rise. All feels good.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||The best thing ever||
We gotta eat!!!!
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Hope he feels that way once agents get to him||
But I think he loves college and would really benefit from one more year then leave. Since he and gr3 are so close (roomies, etc.) I hope their decisions to stay become a pkg deal. I do fear gr3 leaving with ford predicting lottery earlier today. He could really use another year too. I'm guessing THJ is gone as well as Burke.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Monster's ceiling||
Is so much higher than cardinal or hannsborough. Fwiw why do his comps have to be the same skin color? Really Mitch was the #1 recruit in the us at one point and I think his movement on pick and rolls and passing really shines. Grantland did a piece on him today. Check it out. Mitch deserves btr comps but admittedly I can't one up with one just now. I just know he's got game and his play has really keyed this tourney run.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Wholeheartedly concur...||
We won a game in a fashion which rarely happens. Bottle it. Save it. Store it. Try never to forget it. This is why I invest in sports. Period.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Still trippin||
On the whole having to shoot in a dome thing. We simply need to shoot the ball well from outside in order to win. I know we can, but not certain we will. This will be a tight contest. If we Ty out of foul trouble I think we can get it done. Hyped! #gobluebaby
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Can I take umbrance||
with one thing...calling him Spike "Magic" Albrecht. That's a sparty reference. He's referred to as Tragic in these parts. Isiah works just fine as a replacement or Gary Grant or Rumeal, or Jalen or you get it...Other than that, gosh damn, that play had me doing the exact same thing when I watched. Leaping up right with them...
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Re: Morgan||
I actually thought the same thing about Morgan, especially with the departure of Smotrycz to Maryland. But I think Morgan, who will be a Senior, is not leaving for one year. Even if he had thoughts, thats a lot to give up, re-enroll, new school, new players, etc., Beilein would convince him to stay. I don't see this as an issue. He has guys like Vogrich now, who can attest to the willingness to stay. Much more concerned about THJ and GR3 in particular, leaving for draft. Burke of course is gone...
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Fuck yeah||
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Beillein will have an answer||
To breaking the havoc. Jut up to kids to execute. Hopefully playing a relative home game can also play into our hands. I don't like his matchup but I do think the pace can help us in spots. This is a tough draw but very winnable. Go Blue!
|1 year 18 weeks ago||One point win||
Does not seem likely considering our inability to close tight ones. I prefer an 8 pt spread. Don't turn the ball over. Win. Simple enough formula. Please no foul trouble either. I was worried as shit when I knew this matchup was coming but strangely feeling better after our performance last night and more breaking down of havoc D. We'll see. Go Blue!!!
|1 year 19 weeks ago||IS Indy soft too?||
Wisconsin just bounced them by more than they best us. It's match ups. This tourney is wiiiidddddeeeee open. If Indy is supposed best team in land and we had them down and out, then we aren't far off. Is duke soft? They lost to unranked Maryland in essentially a home game. This is just a wild year. I'm as pissed as anyone but we do have one level of hope here. Lets go!!
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Truth||
The number one ranking changed expectations for this team. We are young. We are good. Wisconsin owns us but we've won 25 games and will be a top 3 seed in the tourney. We choked off the home game to Indy and lost on a miracle at Wisconsin. We are capable of beating anyone if all goes well. Equally capable of getting bounced in first or second rd if we take a shit. Hope as always been sweet 16 and go from there cuz you never know. Try to enjoy it. The losses frustrate. Questions abound. But we're good now a missed ft or two from sharing second straight big ten championship in the best conf in the nation. There is still hope and I'm ready for a good draw on Sunday. The kids can regroup and go fucking blue! Remember too they are just kids. Ehhh....
|1 year 20 weeks ago||I am and you're right...||
fair point. Just would have loved to see him (or the team of course) finish today. Hopefully we can make a run, down now, but not out.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Ehhhhhhh.......||
One more thing on this and why it is bad, I think it actually puts more pressure on the FT shooter, because he knows if he misses, his team is not getting the rebound. Instead we have 4 guys back to defend one man from the other team. So silly. Especially for a team where FT shooting has been a problem in trying to close teams out over the last two years. Give the kids some confidence!! That is definitely on Coach B.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Definitely true...||
but at what point do we point not to luck but strategy? I really like Coach B, but sometimes his strategies befuddle me. Just a thought. Hope it does indeed swing in our favor though...matter of fact, how about immediately and lets go on a run in this thing!!
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Short memory...||
It does and it doesn't. He made an incredible play, so techincally yes, but he wasn't being defended, so in that sense, no. Your takeaway from my post is the wrong one though. I complimented the kid and said I loved him, but he has the ball in his hands EVERY game down the stretch and he has continually come up "short" there. Again, love him to pieces, but it is what it is. He generally has settled for the long three but has attacked on occasion and missed there too. I'm not putting this game on him, when he was at the line, I was actually confident he'd convert, but miss again he did in a crucial situation. Maybe he can go on a Kemba Walker type run in the tourney, but its hard to be really confident that it will happen. Gotta really hope that GR3 doesnt go pro more than anything, or next year, we could be thin, esp if Hardaway tries his hand at NBA, and fails, like Manny Harris did. GR3 is the biggest talent we've had at Michigan for the NBA in 15 years or so by my guess off the top of my head, so we need him to come back next year and be legit.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||I can't stand that Beilein||
I can't stand that Beilein does that, but thats been his philosophy since he came to Michigan. I don't get it either, but maybe if your team rebounds as poorly as this one, it doesnt matter.
