A real "we aren't in Kansas anymore" moment for the program, in my estimation.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Some context||
I understand where this tired argument comes from, but without the context that is the revenue that football players generate, any list of their compensation is meaningless.
According to Forbes, Michigan Football had $85M in revenue in 2011-2012. If you figure that each scholarship player gets $100,000 in scholarships/room/board which seems high but I will go with it, together they receive $8.5M in compensation or 10% of the revenue. NFL players receive around 50%.
Maybe some macroeconomist can chime in and say if receiving 10% of the revenue you generate is pretty standard in the workplace but it certainly is low compared to the professional sports leagues.

Yeah, I learned about this one time back in high school when I told my pops that some friends and I were going to go ball down at the park. He didn't know I was talking about hoops...

Cool story, but wouldn't the lander have plummeted down if that scenario was the case?
|9 weeks 1 day ago||some great names||
however, with all do respect to the SBNation author, Dee Liner is clearly the most appropriate name for a defender (he was/is a DL no less!) in recent memory, if not ever.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I know||
It was said with tongue in cheek. I just like his enthusiasm on the bench.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||McGary return schedule||
Is there any update on Mitch's expected return date because I am a little concerned about losing our All-American quality hype man. He is clearly the reason behind our recent success.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||as for his "quotable" nature||
when do assistant coaches (excluding coordinators) every get interviewed or attend press conferences?
|18 weeks 3 days ago||It all makes sense now||
They must have slashed the referee budget in favor of pregame festivities.

he was 17th in the AL in slug pct. this year after being 7th last year. He might be a little overpaid, but he's no slouch.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||I believe it was reported that Magnuson came on||
I believe it was reported that Magnuson came on the field briefly while Lewan was shaking off an injury, but didn't take a snap. What I don't know is if that means he would still be the 2nd string right tackle or if that would be Braden

That home schedule. Lulz.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||dinner spot||
for dinner, try l'ardoise, near the Vendome. reasonable prix fixe menu that was outstanding.
|39 weeks 14 hours ago||Frankly, I think the role he played last year||
Frankly, I think the role he played last year (corner 3's, cutting to the hoop, cleaning up around the rim) pretty well matched his strengths. Hopefully he will diversify his game a bit more for this year, but I think it's inaccurate to say he was held back last year by his position.
|1 year 1 week ago||Exactly||
People reacting emotionally to sporting events, which in the grand scheme of things are quite trivial, is ironic and thus often amusing. We are not laughing at serious human suffering, after all.
|1 year 1 week ago||You missed that one||
It took me a couple viewings myself to see what Ace was referring to so I get why you did not understand. He was referring to the Syracuse mascot, who flopped over after the play.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||To the Kenpoms||
We have been a top 5 offense all year according to Kenpom and there are questions about the effectiveness of our offensive structure?
You ask why we don't "leverage the post to open up the perimeter". Beilein's offense does the opposite, by opening up cuts and drives to the lane with the threat of the 3-point shot. Seems to be working pretty well, no?
|1 year 4 weeks ago||This was a good strategy||
This move did work 70% of the time, but the REAL trick was starting at an icing face-off circle, skating across the goal mouth, and slotting in at the back post when the goalie couldn't keep up. That baby worked 100% of the time.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||I would like to take this||
I would like to take this moment to thank the heavens for Lewan's return. Imagine doing this thought exercise without him penciled in.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||I'm no expert||
But I think the hairstyle was just a fade, and not a high top fade, no? Whatever it was, I loved it in combination with the throwbacks.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||I could be wrong, but I||
I could be wrong, but I remember us running a 2-3 zone twice, giving up easy buckets inside both times. I thought we looked shaky with it.
Also, this is how I feel about McGary's improvement:
"You're getting it, Mitch!"
|1 year 10 weeks ago||My impression||
My impression is that he does not have a real strong grasp of the offense yet and thus breaks up the flow of our sets. He seems to over-dribble a bit when he gets the ball. It doesn't concern me too much at this point, freshman and all that. Just needs to learn not to force it quite as much.

I miss Ray almost as much as I miss the la liga games with their move to BeIN. sadface.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Anyone else see that he was||
Anyone else see that he was texting when they came back from commercial for the half time show. I think we now know what he was up to; trying to find where the party was at.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||oh I definitely get it||
that voice...it's agony inducing.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||I didn't check the game logs,||
I didn't check the game logs, but this has to be the 47th time this season that Burke has gone for 8 assists and one turnover, right? One impressive dude.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||As an I-95er, I would love to||
As an I-95er, I would love to have localish games in College Park and where ever the hell Rutgers plays. however, I agree that the matchups leave something to be desired.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||I'm sure bacari is a great coach||
but dude needs to work on his pregame speeches. The Purdue pep talk in the episode you're referring to, and the one from OSU were both a little lame...jmo
|1 year 12 weeks ago||RIP||
in no way I'm I trying to make light of his passing, but we just watched the season five episode last night where Prop Joe gets killed before hearing about this. CSB, but kinda creepy. RIP.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||At least one will leave||
At least one will leave early, and I would consider that a huge coup. Even two departures means one of Hardaway and Robinson will return which would not be the worst thing.
