Remember 2008? Or any season at Purdue?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Miles is a good coach||
I hope he can recruit to the new facilities and the B1G can count on another good basketball team in the conference.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Can't wait for BigTenNetwork||
Can't wait for BigTenNetwork on chromecast. I hope they get on that soon.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||2nd Gen TA||
Passed because the owner had gooped on so much undercoating I couldn't tell the condition of the floors/trunk. I think he was trying to hide some rot. Second problem was it wasn't registered/inspected and since he was in Philly I wasn't taking any chances on the PoPo writing me a ticket on the testdrive.
Too many unknowns. Seller presented it as driveable right now but backpedaled when I pressed him on it. I had the seller down 20% from his asking price AND he was going to deliver it ~200mi to my house but gut feeling said I should walk.
I either passed up a great deal or dodged big problems.
Most importantly, The Bride isn't very supportive of my car purchase decision and I don't want to deal with hearing what a bad idea it was if there is a problem. I took my 16yo son with me and he wanted my to buy it terribly.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Been saying that for a while||
Maybe if The Invisible Man came off the bench he'd play better as a 6. Thankfully I didn't watch today but I'd call IM and Irvin a push right now and Irvin is only a freshman.
I'm somewhat patient with Levert because he should be a RS Freshman this year and sometimes he really looks like it. I can't wait to see him put it all together.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Drove 3 hours to and 3 hours from.||
Looked at a classic car and negotiated a great deal. Decided on the way home to pass on it.
Saw the score on my Sirius and decided to listen to Ed Lover instead.

"I don't know what it's called when you reach your level of incompetence and then get promoted anyways beyond that."
|4 weeks 1 day ago||SSSSEEEEEECCCCCC||
I guess this kid just assumed since the SEC schools can over sign why can't players? He may be starting a new trend in oversigning.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||His time is now||
Time to put the Invisible Man on the bench and let Irvin improve in game situations. He's showed himself quite well in situational substitutions while the Invisible Man continues to shrink from the spotlight.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Time to move Robinson to the 6||
Invisible Man strikes again.
Bright side is that this game showed Stauskas isn't ready to leave yet.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Invisible Man to bench||
Irvin is in. Playing time is available if he takes it.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||GRIII is doing his Invisible||
GRIII is doing his Invisible Man impersonation again. Walton is trying to step up but I think it's gonna take another player as well.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Cult Following/Personality||
Not exactly on the same level but my son has worked out with 2 athletic trainers.
The first was one hired by his football team to work with them before the season much like colleges do when the coaches can't work with the kids. I watched and there was no motivation outside of what the players provided themselves. My son was extremely disappointed with that process and since they never baselined anything nobody knew if it was worth a crap.
He now is working with another trainer that comes out of our pocket. This guy is very sports specific but there is some overlap. Initially his "class" was my son, a signed D1 basketball recruit, and a RB trying to get ready for the CFL combine. The new guy has a personality such that my son looks forward to working with him and afterward he's exhausted but doesn't complain. Everything is planned and logged as well.
From what I've seen, personality is VERY important.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||In for a Kate Upton Posbang||
It's the only chance I will realisticly be able to have Bang and Kate Upton in the same sentence without making it up.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Where to go from here?||
A certain other B1G school buried allegations of (child)rape and eventually had to pay. How high does this go? Are Hoke/Brandon just as accountable as Paterno/Curley?
This is terrible on many levels but mostly for the yound lady involved. I'm sure there are lawyers circling already.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Only Dookie V would figure||
Only Dookie V would figure a way to talk about the ACC and Dook for long stretches of the best B1G basketball game of the current season.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||60 times at open tryouts||
When programs conduct a "pro-style" open tryout the 1st thing prospects do is run a 60. Unless you are also a pitching prospect, if you don't record a sub 7-second 60 time you don't get to hit/field/throw. Sometimes exceptions are made for catchers.
My son ran a 7.2 at his last timed 60. As a middle fielder that hits for power he's lowered his expectations to D2 or D3.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Next year||
Next year will be his breakout year like Stauskas this year. We still haven't seen him reach his potential.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Can't cope||
He obviously isn't coping with a resurgent Big Ten Basketball conference very well. Deal with it biatch. The whole conference is strong now, well except PSU and Neb.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Curiosity||
I don't ever remember JB embracing the past like was expected of RR. Could this be part of of what is bothering Jalen? I'm guessing that since basketball was in such bad shape when he arrived there was no mandatory asskissing needed and he could get to work building his program in his way with his players.
As a basketball junkie I've followed JB since his Richmond days and when he moved to Michigan I was thrilled.
|6 weeks 19 hours ago||Why no love for Wheatley?||
He seems to be building a solid resume but very few ever mention him, just Hart. Is it because his time at Michigan predates most of the posters on mgoblog?
|6 weeks 23 hours ago||Just a site visit||
Alabama is looking to renovate another weight room and playing field for an underprivileged and deserving high school. It was just pure coincedence that it was Rosen's school.
*Dee Hart /Clinton-Dix reference
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Next up||
I love watching this kid play but if the next level comes calling and waving millions at him he should go. He's come to the fore as next player up as has GRIII.
Next year it will be Walton, Lavert, and maybe Irvin. We don't get to watch these kids forever so let's just enjoy watching them while we can.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Burke Freshman vs Walton Freshman||
I don't know if it's been done, but I think a better comparison would be Walton, Burke, Morris as freshman since they all run JB's offense. I don't care how well other team's freshman PG's play. I care how well the freshman PG for Michigan plays.
Not locking your research because I do find it interesting and I think I'm going to see if I can apply it to my son's BB team.
|7 weeks 19 hours ago||The Carpenters||
For the same reasons I'd rather gouge my eardrums out than ever hear The Carpenters again. Same with Carly Simon.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Progressively Worse||
The fans pay higher prices but what about the non-fans who pay for the stadiums?
*Not going political just making a statement as someone paying for several stadiums of teams I don't care to see.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Those are positive keywords||
Those are positive keywords on an NFL resume.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Roid Rage||
Might want to check your dosage.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Sweeping out the trash||
Last bit of the Paterno tribe and father of a serial woman beater.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Coming Home||
A lot of SEC coaches have B1G roots. Saban and Miles are the easy ones.
Franklin (Vandy/PSU) is from PA
Mullen (MSU) coached @ ND and is from PA
Stoops (Ky) coached at IA and is from OH
Pinkel (Mo) is from OH
Jones (Tn) coached @ Rutgers and is from Mi
Bielema (Ar) HC @ Wisconsin
Sumlin (A&M) Played at Purdue coached at Minn & Purdue
That's just head coaches. I'm sure there is even more ties with assistants.
