"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

Not cool. It's the only paywalled content of the site all year - just support the blog, man.

You are confusing what is done with the bottom line with the focus on the bottom line. DB is attempting to maximize revenue in all areas which bring in revenue, i.e., football, basketball, to an extent hockey, Big House events/tours, etc. The nonrevenue sports are in comparison where that money goes. Under the athletic department model I see him treating the nonrevenue sports as the shareholders, putting the value earned from the revenue into those. You can disagree with me about this, and in a very narrow sense yes you're right he could instead simply ignore the other sports and somehow find another NCAA compliant way to spend that money, but in my mind it's still entirely bottom-line oriented. Why else charge four dollars plus for a water at the Big House, bring on things like "the Michigan Minnesota game officially brought to you by today's game day sponsor, Hyundai" and try to charge everyone for seat cushions?

I'm not sure his heart is in the right place. He seems entirely bottom-line oriented (at the expense of the fans), and it appears to me that, based on this apparent lack of understanding or appreciation for providing the Michigan community atmosphere (vs a "mini Super Bowl" every week), his 20-whatever years in corporate boardrooms have overridden whatever Michigan-first values he might have learned in his four years under Bo.

When you're picking up commitments from guys with offers from so many of the top schools in the game (Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, LSU, Mizzou, MSU, Nebraska, Notre Dame, OSU, Penn State, etc.), you know you're doing something right!

Right and that's why I phrased it as such- the penultimate episodes have historically, IMO, been the very best. Hence, with those elevated expectations, I found it to be disappointing. It was, to me, an hour long battle who've I've basically already seen in LOTR. Just my opinion, but as an Ep 9 it felt lacking.

IMO: That was the worst (seasonal) penultimate episode of the series yet. Instead of being the Wall's version of Blackwater, it felt like I was just watching the end of LOTR: The Two Towers again.

I'd rather have seen Mich lose to Illinois in an early upset (and get the time to rest) than to watch this awful performance against Sparty today.

Albom's The Fab Five is one of my favorites. Written long before the Webber/Martin allegations came out, it obviously focuses only on the players/team/culture of Michigan basketball at the time. A great read which I would highly recommend to any fan.
