I think you underestimate how terrible Nebraska has been at basketball.

The idea of Jalen Rose over Trey Burke is laughable. Burke not only was easily the 2nd best player to ever wear the Maize and Blue on the hardwood, but he might even have been the best, especially considering he was here for just 2 years.

As a fan, I would rather see Michigan play in the CBI or NIT over not going to the postseason, but the argument of "more experience" doesn't hold up to me.
Penn State was in the CBI last year and is a fringe NIT team this year and Minnesota won the NIT last year and is projected go back there again. On the contrary, Indiana declined their CBI bid and are projected as a #7 seed in the NCAA Tournament right now. These are just 3 examples, but go back and look and you will see similar things. There really hasn't been any trend for CBI or NIT postseason success equating to success in the next season.
I don't think more playing time would hurt this team, but as others have pointed out, in the long run, taking time off to heal, hitting the weight room, and scrimmaging our own team might be more productive than games against teams like Old Dominion.
It also could give the staff more time to recruit as well. I know we're not talking about much extra time, but if it means we can reel in a guy like Jaylen Brown, I would take that over any CBI or NIT bid 10 times over.

If you have followed CSG in recent years, they blow an incredible amount of money on stupid things like this while being funded by mandatory tuition increases. That's what is the worst about this.

I want to see a 30 for 30 on the Brady vs Henson battle and the politics of playing Henson over Brady at the time. I think the concept of playing Henson over Brady because he could be the next Elway is such a good story because they already had the next one on the roster.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Honestly, I don't blame||
Honestly, I don't blame people for thinking this and reasoning this, but even a 1st Round exit is so much more superior than even an NIT championship.
Not only does it keep your program relevant, but it also helps recruiting and let's your players experience the top level. As we have seen for teams like Baylor, Iowa, and Minnesota, making the NIT does not breed success.

I think the concep was to tap into the alumni base into Chicago. Michigan has done this successfully in New York with basketball and I think they wanted to try it out with football as well. Obviously, a huge miscalculation and something that may push Michigan and MSU hockey fans off on these events for the near future.
For me, I would like to see them do it every 2 years. I know a lot of people are in support of the every 4 years principle, but I like the idea of every player at least getting a home game. Having said that, the every 4 years plan would be fine by me, just would prefer 2 years.

It's only for dual meets. In swimming, it gets decided at championships, where a lot of schools compete. It's almost entirely different due to the scoring because it's harder to get points for lower finishes due to the number of schools involved.

Best of luck to him. He never quite lived up to the hopes some had for him in Ann Arbor, but hey, if he spent 4 years here, got in no trouble, and earned a degree, that's a big accomplishment in my book.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||If there is one recruiting||
If there is one recruiting area where my concern is lowest going forward, it's at quarterback. I know it's the most important position by far, but I just don't think Harbaugh is going to have trouble finding guys, especially if he is going to be taking 1-2 guys in every class. From what I understand, he took in a lot of guys at Stanford and seemed to do alright.

Why did people think this was gonna be close? Ohio State is a joke compared to Michigan swimming.

There's no way in hell Mone redshirts. To be honest, he might even beat out Pipkins. I love Pipkins, but has he really shown that much more than a true freshman Mone? Both are solid options and both will play. A lot.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||The unfortunate part about||
The unfortunate part about this as well is the fact that your average NFL team only gets 8 regular season games. Everyone likes to speculate on the "impact" these places will have only local economies, but I just don't see how it can have enough, especially considering how few homes games there actually are per season in football.
Plus, even if these places host concerts and other events - as the Silverdome did and Ford Field does - a lot of it is limited by size too. Not many artists and bands can fill NFL stadiums, but a ton can fill arenas like the Palace or Joe Louis. They certainly will have events, but they're definitely fewer and farther in between than most like to admit.

Wasn't Seattle a 1 last year or am I remembering this wrong?

Wow, yeah that's an unbelievable hire for a program of that size. The guy was literally in consideration for programs like Wisconsin before YSU.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Agree with some of your||
Agree with some of your response, but I do think the "revolving door" of the college atmosphere has to be noted with this. New guys are constantly going to be moving in and old guys will constantly be moving out, including your best players. Just think the potential for this is much more limited than in the NFL.

I got deferred when I applied and it was absolutely the worst. Not even joking when I say that it took a lot of joy out of Christmas break that year. However, if you do get in, the joy is still there. Hold out hope!

|10 weeks 23 hours ago||The unfortunate thing that I||
The unfortunate thing that I can see happening is if Harbaugh turns down Michigan for an NFL job and everybody assumes he was "stringing Michigan along." That's certainly a possibility, but there is a decision too. I think separating that is going to be hard for people because the effect on fans will be the same on whether he turns us down for the right or the wrongs reasons.

Funny things also showing up in Ann Arbor with a new parking spot for Jim Harbaugh:

Wow, I can't believe a program with a huge reputation nationally and the biggest stadium in North American pays its coaches at an elite level!
|11 weeks 3 days ago||The only way this works is if||
The only way this works is if you reduce the number of games in the regular season, move many of the neutral games to campus sites, and try to work toward giving the conferences more control. Still, you're talking about the potential of an 18(!!!) game season for a team like Wisconsin that makes the Big Ten championship game and loses. That's 6 more games than a team like Michigan would play that fails to make a bowl game. That is such a huge discrepancy. The only way I can really see them getting beyond 16 is making the conferences bigger and making those essentially a first round.

Enfold has struggled at USC, but so have a ton of people there. A lot of people were going after him though so that's a pretty solid hire from their end.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Right now, I would take Ricky||
Right now, I would take Ricky Doyle over Jon Horford and Doyle is not even the starter of our team. Horford has his moments and has his skillset, but with our small ball lineup, I would rather have a devastating big man down low.
Plus, if you actually think Horford would have slowed down Kaminsky ... yeah. He certainly cannot handle him in the low post as he gets pushed off the block and Horford was mediocre at best at hedging defense.
Horford looks much better at Florida than he ever did in Ann Arbor, but I think we might be getting carried away with how that would transfer to our team.

Time to start a new thread titled, "But what if Hoke stays?"
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Obviously, if this report is||
Obviously, if this report is true, that's a huge blow as Jim Harbaugh would have been the best hire for the job. Even if you are not as high on Harbaugh, I don't think there is a guy out there who would be more universally approved by the fans and media. He literally is/was the home run hire.
Having said that, if he does not want to come to Ann Arbor, I think it's at least a positive that he let them know earlier rather than later.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||If they're serious about||
If they're serious about going after Harbaugh, they need to drag out the evaluation of Hoke for at least a week. Maybe more.
