Proposal - adopt football divisions for basketball. Yes it would be imbalanced, but it would keep rivalries intense. The East would be stacked, Wisco would have an easy schedule. I'm willing to play the West only once per year if it means guaranteed H/H with MSU, OSU, IU (and PSU, Maryland and Rutgers I guess).
Here's what I think should happen:
20 game schedule, home and home vs other 6 teams in your division (12 games) plus one game vs. each team in opposite division (7 more games). The last game can be (A) a protected crossover rivalry (IU and Purdue would probably want this); (B) a strict rotation (14 year cycle, and you play each crossover 8 times at home over the 14 years; or (C) a matchup determined by previous year ranking in the division (1v1, 2v2, etc.) for competitive balance.
You could even design the BTT so that teams play at least the first game against the opposite division.

"Sweep or Die" is rather dramatic. Let's not forget that we still have the B1G tournament to get us into the NCAA tourney. Obviously you can never count on single elimination hockey, but you cannot completely discount it either. We'll be the best team in the Joe and it will basically be home ice (I understand Minnesota has crazy good hockey fans, but I can't imagine too many will make the 12 hour drive). How many Wisco, OSU or MSU fans will be there with crappy teams to cheer for and their basketball teams in March Madness? They would all root against Michigan out of spite.
What I'm saying is obviously would be better to win than lose. But a loss in the next few games is not the end of the season.

It's been a lot of games and fans are understandably weary of outdoor games (playing in Madison, Ann Arbor, Cleveland and Detroit over the last few years), but what's Michigan going to do when they ask, say no? Okay, they could and should have said no to this one. On the other hand, if Penn State calls to have M play in Happy Valley in the next couple of years, you can bet we will be willing to play the bad guy. As we should.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, it is the referees'||
Yes, it is the referees' jobs. Nobody is mad at the Cowboys guy (I don't even remember his name) who interfered with Pettigrew on that play in the WC game. I didn't hear anyone calling him or the Cowboys "cheaters." The players and coaches are not paid to make sure the game is fair, the officials are. Football isn't a sport with a tradition of "gentemanly play," unlike golf, sailing, tennis and others. There have always been and always will be teams that push the rules, and that's okay, as long as the officials are good there is no issue.

Tons of acapella groups. Amaizin' Blue is the top one, I think.

Good for all of them. It always sucks to lose a couple of the top players for the GLI to the world juniors. Anyone know which ones have a realistic shot of being selected for the team?

I think you're missing (in the coming to Michigan paragraph) the fact that Harbaugh wants to finish the season no matter what. He is a professional, and will not quit on his team and players, even though he is out of the playoffs and effectively done. Two games isn't going to make much of a difference either way.
Also, you left out the third possibility, which I think is most likely--he doesn't know what he wants to do, and he has not ruled anything out. He is and always has been planning to wait until the end of the season. He has not made a choice either way. So again, everyone has to wait until the end of the NFL season.

That's probably it. I'll look out for that in the future. Have an upvote

Thanks for replying, but that's exactly what I did, and it didn't work. I thought I have seen embedded tweets before, so I dunno what's different.

It's a Funchess tweet. I was editing, but I no longer can since you replied...Sorry for the lack of context.
Does anybody know how to embed tweets on the board? I tried above, and it just blockquoted and stripped the link back.

Maybe I'm wrong about this, but I don't think Brian actually reported anything. He is simply summarizing and analyzing what he hears from other sources on the internet and radio. Maybe Fox Sports should go to his actual sources and put them on the spot.

So he's not coaching the bowl game? That seems odd. A fired coach usually gets to finish out the season, unless he doesn't want to, right?
|25 weeks 1 day ago||For everyone saying that||
For everyone saying that Michigan should wait before firing Hoke, you're implying that Michigan's athletic department, with an interim director with no experience, knows more about how to do this than the directors at Nebraska and Florida. I don't know much about either, and they could very well be incompetent nicompoops as well, but I kind of doubt it.

Interesting to note the difference in attitude among fans between how Beilein handles Midnight Madness, and the football coaches's treatment of the Spring Game. If you're winning, you can do what you want. If you're not, fans jump all over you and your disdain for fan-friendly events.

Monochrome in football is always a bad look. Especially all blue, with no pants stripes. It's like they were wearing jumpers. We have worn maize pants for nearly every game for most of our lifetimes--why stop now?
