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.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Caris!!!||
|4 weeks 1 day 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.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||One thing missed||
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.
|29 weeks 1 day ago||Well done.||
Congratulations on a successful interview. Insightful, engaging, open, a real treat for us all. Thanks.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||Perfect call...||
Dude bit the hook, the beats, Evrythang. Typical sparty
|29 weeks 2 days ago||His crew is clearly hard||
Hate to see them in broad daylight.

I had flo before progressive...
|29 weeks 3 days 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.
|33 weeks 3 days 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.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||The best thing ever||
We gotta eat!!!!
|36 weeks 2 days 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.
|36 weeks 3 days 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.
|36 weeks 6 days 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.
|37 weeks 1 day 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
|37 weeks 3 days 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...
|37 weeks 3 days 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...
|37 weeks 6 days ago||Fuck yeah||
|38 weeks 15 sec 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!
|38 weeks 53 min 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!!!
|38 weeks 6 days 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!!
|38 weeks 6 days 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....
|39 weeks 4 days 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.
|39 weeks 4 days 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.
|39 weeks 4 days 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!!
|39 weeks 4 days 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.
|39 weeks 4 days 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.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||This smarts but showed our flaws||
Our flaws were on display this game, start to finish. We have enough talent to beat anyone, but enough flaws to lose to anyone.
Make a FT, win the game. Box some poeple out, win the game. Maybe get a call, win the game. Make a tip in that is there for the taking, win the game.
We got destroyed on the glass, a continuous achilles heel. Burke, for as amazing as he is, neve rhit a game winner all year and had tons of chances. (Yes, hes the reason we won 25 games, but still, facts are facts). Indiana is not much better than we are, but they are because they have the heart to close out a game when it matters. We, do not.
Hardaway continues to be the most vexing player on the planet. 1-6 3's, missed front end of a 1-1 at end. This just hurts. Admittedly, I said before season began that Sweet 16 was the goal, and now, that seems about where we can get to, but it will feel like a failure regardless, because of how much we showed this year. Perhaps, we'll get lucky and grow a few balls and make a tourney run, but anyone truly expecting that will/should happen is kidding themselves.
We are a good team in a year with no great teams, so all is up for grabs, but this is a low feeling that you could just see coming once we didnt get the call (even though it was a tough one, it should have been called) and then split at the line from GR3. The rest, you could just see it happening before your eyes like a premonition. Fuck.
|41 weeks 23 hours ago||Not sure why we didn't mix up defense more||
Where is the 1-3-1 that has been so great in spurts for Beilein in yrs past? Also agree with poster who said why no use of zone? Refs did hose us some unquestionably. Pace of game considerably slowed by constant whistles. But there is no way to sit here and think we have much going for us if we can't beat a winless team on the road with a possible big ten title looming, especially when you have a 15 pt lead with 10:39 to play. Only silver lining is that tourney will not bring true "road" games but rather neutral court. Still...
|2 years 36 weeks ago||I don't know about that...||
the Big Ten Championship game will be bigger than any bowl game can ever be? Mattison needs to step back from the ledge there. How about a National Championship game? How about a Rose Bowl win? Seriously dude.
The D will undoubtedly be better, if for no other reason outside of their age. The offense is what has me concerned. I don't like the change in scheme and putting Denard under center. His feet are his greatest weapon and he needs to be afforded the opportunity to use them. I really wish they would ahveekpt RR or brought in a spread HC when it comes to the offense.
I feel like Hoke is in a win-win situation. His team should be better and capable of getting 9 wins or so. Hence he'll be hailed as a great hire, even though RR could have done that too. I still hate Brandon for this hire. I can't get over it, til Michigan is a continuous Big Ten champion and national championship winner. I don't care if those are high hopes, thats how I feel.
