Some people just don't post that much okay?

The -40 yard botched punt helps the number too

|1 year 37 weeks ago||It's a date set by the NCAA||
It's a date set by the NCAA as the first day you can officially give offers. Most colleges don't care and give offers before then, but Beilein always waits until the date before he officially offers a prospect.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||I think it just depends. I||
I think it just depends. I took Calc BC and got a 5 on the AP test, but when I started at Michigan in Fall 2008 I went into Math 256. If I remember correctly I could've gone into Calc 3 but because it was honors applied and because I wanted to start off with a solid GPA I chose Calc 2. I don't think there's a standard procedure for which class you have to go into and both calc 2 and 3 are options.

He said had the tools not has. Obviously he can and did play 4, it's just not a good fit of he's playing there 20-30 mins a game.

(We're not at full strength when our all-American center is in a suit on the sidelines. Just because we don't whine about it doesn't mean we don't have injuries)

Zack Novak was in the b school too
|2 years 3 weeks ago||Your day by day countdown of||
Your day by day countdown of important players before the season starts is probably my favorite Michigan football blogging series out there. Well I guess aside from UFRs.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||Good to see the recruits seem||
Good to see the recruits seem to be reacting to it positively, any chance you could ask some more of the committed players though? It seems like they are the ones who really have had the opportunity to develop a relationship with Borges, I'm curious what their thoughts are.

#20 is Torii Hunter going over the wall in the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox too.

Scott tenorman of the week?! Brian put me in twis!! Hi Mom!
|2 years 16 weeks ago||We did run inverted veers in||
We did run inverted veers in the 4q and they got blown up. I can't believe we didn't run a qb draw in overtime, we were getting at least 7 yards every time with it
|2 years 25 weeks ago||And the second graph's Y-axis||
And the second graph's Y-axis should be "% of total carries" or something like that. Good info though.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Fun Fact||
Trey Burke's given name is actually Alfonso Clark Burke III, so I guess really we should be gunning for Alfonso Burke IV, or Quad Burke if he rolls that way.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||I'm pretty sure Brundidge was||
I'm pretty sure Brundidge was the higher ranked recruit by (high 3* vs middle 4*) by all sites and he was in the class earlier than Burke. I believe we only went after Burke once Darius Morris went pro, which is why people thought Burke would be more important, a true PG vs a PG/SG tweener on a team with no point guards.
|2 years 43 weeks ago||I would put McGary and GR3 at||
I would put McGary and GR3 at the exact same odds for leaving. They're best friends and similar pro prospects, they're probably talking all day to each other about what to do, and I wouldn't be surprised if that all adds up to them making the same decision.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Unfortunate but not||
Unfortunate but not surprising. Hopefully Trouba sticks around.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Haha, I never noticed Tim and||
Haha, I never noticed Tim and Trey jumping simultaneously on GRIII's dunk. Also about half the bench at the exact same time as them, shit I probably jumped at that moment too, I think you nailed it calling it a Pavlonian response.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Yup, we got the same||
Yup, we got the same heritage. If you haven't heard about the FORCE conference it's a very well put together conference my family and I have been to a couple times. It really does a great job at objectively going over the facts of BRCA and the best ways of going about dealing with the mutation. It's specifically intended for women but it's pretty empowering from a male's perspective too, here's a link to the website if you're interested: http://www.facingourrisk.org/. My prayers go out to you and your family, I know this can be a difficult thing to deal with.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||I apologize if this is too||
I apologize if this is too personal, but is it BRCA? We have it in my family, luckily my sisters found out about it when they were young.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Also Levert has shown a||
Also Levert has shown a tendency to get rattled in big games. Playing VCU's press in the NCAA tournament is a pretty easy way to get rattled. I'm going to be pretty nervous if Caris is bringing the ball up against heavy man pressure. I would definitely rather see Hardaway/Spike out there.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Does anybody know why Morgan||
Does anybody know why Morgan didn't make an appearance tonight?
|2 years 50 weeks ago||Not sure if this is what he's||
Not sure if this is what he's talking about, but by my calculations the gazelle only has to run faster than the slowest gazelle to not get eaten.

I like the way you think.

Don't forget the phantom foul on Burke when Thomas took that shot from the free throw line and airballed.... even though noone touched him. That's 7 for the buckeyes plus the borderline flagrant in overtime.

Trey Burke! Tim Hardaway Jr! Mitch McGary! GO BLUE!!
|3 years 9 weeks ago||McGary wasn't hyped as a HS||
McGary wasn't hyped as a HS recruit I thought, he wasn't ranked #2 in the nation until he was out of high school and into his year of prep school.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||I think Beilein is starting||
I think Beilein is starting Vogrich just to give a nod to the senior. Starting lineups really don't matter as much in basketball, it's common to start a Senior over a Freshman early in the season just to respect the 4/5 years the senior has put in. Who Beilein plays to close the game tells more about what he thinks about his players than who he plays to start
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Are you trying to say||
Are you trying to say Stauskus is a better defender than Vogrich? I think we have a better team with Stauskus on the floor but I think Stauskus has a ways to go on the defensive end.
