|2 weeks 3 days ago||I was at the Puerto Rico Tip||
I was at the Puerto Rico Tip Off Tourney.... And having watched the team in person, I have to say, I'm not terribly worried. I'm not saying they'll win it all. But from all indications, the issues we do have are all correctible with time and coaching (something the bball team is not lacking). Yes, they are young. Yes, they still make freshman mistakes. Yes, they still need to work on their defense.
But despite all that, after the loss to Charlotte I came away thinking 'this will be a really good team come March/April"
I look forward to the team they will eventually gel into.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||I was gonna stay out of this||
I was gonna stay out of this whole discussion... But in all the posts on the subject over the last couple weeks, I've not seen this little tidbit brought up. If it was and I missed it, apologies.
Let me preface by saying this applies only to student football game attendance. Basically, you all suck and here's why. You are at that game as a student at the University of Michgan. That means you are there to support your team on the field. Showing up late or not at all is disrespectuf to that team, they deserve better. Want proof? Read this comment from Thomas Gordon in the Akron postgame presser:
Was there an emotional letdown this game?
Gordon: "Well that can be an excuse, but we still expect to come out and execute and compete. We did not do that. But you know, obviously you see the stands at the beginning of the game, but it shouldn't affect you. This is a young team, and we can't let things like that affect the team."
There you have it, right from one of the leaders on the team - the student section sucked. He mans up and accepts it's no valid excuse for a poor performance. But it doesn't change the fact that it was noted and I'd be willing to bet it did make an impression on the team. Probably Akron too. So, leave your lame excuses in the dorm and get to the game.

I'm staying in midtown and I've been seeing Louisville fans arriving throughout the day. I was just down in the hotel lobby a few minutes ago (12:30 am-ish) and 4 or 5 more parties were just checking in. I have a feeling half the state of KY might be in GA right now...

not so much in relation to the "official" sections (117-119, 124). 130 is in the opposite corner, on the same end of the court as those.

Not exactly scalping related... but the Alumni Tour now lists limited ticket availability with their package. *BUT* They don't say where the seats are. Anyone know?

Any season ticket holders not planning on trying for FF tix?

I think you're right that they must still be updating... In the tally I only see the 40 for being an alum listed. Shows 0's for everything else. But my total shows as 45 which is less than what it should be.

I think this is overly critical.
I too was a student during their reign and attended both FF trips. To say the losses were disappointing is one thing. But to say they didn't live up to expectations is to my mind beyond harsh. We all knew they were going to be good - but the freshman year was far better than what the preseason expectations were. The soph year certainly had high expectations. And while they didn't bring home the championship, it's not as if they choked and bailed in the second round or anything. They were there at the very end and ended up perhaps one miscalled TO away from winning it.
Despite not actually winning the title, I consider those two years as some of the most successful in program history (putting aside the unrelated stuff that had nothing to do with what happened on the court).

Hooray! You just saved me from havin to drive my lazy ass all the way over to the west side for early kickoffs. I still don't understand why *both* official LA locations are so far west. Makes this H'wood Hillsider feel left out.

I'm not suggesting you do it... as what you've already done is great and it will be interesting to follow as we go thru the season. BUT, I would love to see this same approach applied to say other team/conference specific trends. In other words could something like this show bias (whether deserved or not) for/against certain teams or conferences? Would be interesting to see....

So great to hear things are coming along. I can't wait to see videos/photos of the garden I named! Better yet all the young people learning from it and enjoying it.

|48 weeks 5 days ago||My point exactly... As good||
My point exactly... As good as we've looked, I just can't help but feel it's been against subpar competition. I hope to be proven wrong in the next few weeks. But until that happens, I'm thinking we're probably overrated.

I think it's IU or Minny...
I'm starting to worry a bit that we haven't really been tested yet. So, it might be a little more open than it currently appears. I mean, not to be too negative - but who have we really beaten? NC State? Kstate? those are prolly the best wins on our record. Pitt is looking more and more like a middle of the rd team at best. None of the above are really marquee matchups to my mind.
Don't get me wrong, I love the way we're playing and Trey is on another planet. But ultimately I don't think we'll have a really good idea where we stand relative to the rest of the conf for at least another 2-3 weeks. Just so many good teams this year.
