But which blue?!?!?
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Maybe but...||
Weber wants to go pro and make millions. If he believes Ohio State is going to give him the best opportunity to do that, I don't blame him. This is a decision that could effect his entire life, so of course he's not going to think of it from the perspective of a fan.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Burn them? No||
But I don't think its accidental he chose that shirt to wear, knowing his workout was going up on Instagram.
I don't necessarily think it means he's going to ask for his release, but its his own personal form of protest.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||Putting this in the back of my mind||
...Urban 1 Jim 0
Let me stress that it doesn't bother me at all that Urban won this one. Or at least it doesn't change my opinion of Jim in even the slightest. But with all that talk about "Urban is impossible to say no to" and "Urban will recruit Michigan", this is something that I will put in the back of my mind in case it becomes a trend.
Weber was a Detroit guy, who committed to Michigan, understandably decommitted when Hoke was fired, then Michigan upgraded to probably one of the best college coaches in the game, but was unable to shake off the coach from a school he should have grown up hating. Maybe its an abberation...in fact it probably is. But dammit I don't want to see many of these types of situations going their way over the next 5 years.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||Lesson is...||
Guess the lesson learned is, if their twitter page changes the day before NSD (*cough* Jefferson and Adams *cough*), they are just as likely to be trolling as they are giving hints
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Since there's a good possiblity||
...that things go south from here on out, I want to point out that Michigan is 56-20 in the Big Ten since January 22, 2011
9-4 the rest of 10-11
13-5 in 11-12
12-6 in 12-13
15-3 in 13-14
5-2 so far in 14-15
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah||
Yeah it should piss them off so that they hire elite coaches in football and basketball. Oh wait we already have that.
OSU gets their night to gloat but how quickly they forget who has had more basketball success lately. UM has been to a NC game and an Elite 8 the last 2 years while my memory of OSU is Craft on the floor crying after losing to an 11 seed in the 1st round.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||If||
If GRIII wasn't a first rounder, there is no way Caris is. I know the draft is thinner than last year's but Glenn oozed upside and potential. I don't think I've seen anything this year that suggests Caris has similar intangibles. I'm not saying he couldn't find a role in the NBA but he's got a lot of risk IMO. Not worth a 1st.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Only 3 in a row. The last||
Only 3 in a row. The last game of 12-13, the only regular season game of 13-14, and the Big Ten Tournament game.
Agree about the schedule though, kind of like forcing us to play in East Lansing 2 years in a row for football.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Yup..||
Adding insult to injury by beating them at home the night after they lost the NC Game would be better. As would beating them at home after they are still despondant over a 0-12 football season. But I guess neither are in play at the moment....
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Not really||
Not really worried about it. If Jim has the kind of immediate success he's had at other stops (except Stanford but that was a program that had really bottomed out and lacked talent), we will be looking at much better than 7th. I'd have us in the top 4 personally.
And to the article's credit, despite right now having a terrible recruiting class, they still bumped us up over 5 Big Ten teams that finished with the same or better records than us last year.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||There is still a ton of||
There is still a ton of talent on UM. They just need coaches who can get the most out of them. Low and behold we got Harbaugh and co.
Granted I'm drinking way too much Kool-Aid predicting 10-2 as the schedule is tough as always, but I believe in Harbaugh and believe he deserves my positive energy.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||10-2 and I guarantee a win||
10-2 and I guarantee a win over either MSU or OSU if not both. Both at home, Harbaugh will not allow losses to both.
End up in either the Rose or Capital One bowl. Whoever beats UM between MSU and OSU goes undefeated in BTT game and ends up in the playoff.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||It's pretty official||
Someone tweeted out a photo of 2 rows of seats at Crisler that were reserved for "Harbaugh and Family"
|30 weeks 2 days ago||It's really freaking||
It's really freaking me out how close at times Harbaugh's hoarse voice sounded like Hoke's.
|30 weeks 3 days ago||Biggest thing||
Stop calling them Ohio. Since we started calling them Ohio:
-Michigan went 1-3 against them, the only win being a 6 point victory at home over a 6-6 team that looked dead the last half of the season
-Declining record each year leading to a bowl less season
-Losing to the ACTUAL Ohio twice in basketball, including once in the NCAA Tournament.
Calling them Ohio State is fine, and not gratifying them by adding that stupid three letter article before the name is still a slight shot at them.

I feel like Doyle would have been redshirted if McGary came back.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||1997 and 2006||
I'm a little surprised that 1997 and 2006 aren't on this list. Especially 2006. 1997 was a big win in a NC season. 2006 was a demolishing of the #2 ranked team in the country at Notre Dame that led to a 11-0 start and a BCS bowl bid.
Other than that, great article
|2 years 15 weeks ago||If Louisville scored at the||
If Louisville scored at the rate they did the last 24 minutes of the game the entire game they would have scored 108 points in the game. Frankly they outplayed us from the 4 min mark of the first half on. There were bad calls but its hard to complain about them when our defense didn't have an answer for them and got completely dominated on the boards.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||Right. I used to be that guy||
Right. I used to be that guy (like the OP). I'm unfortunately a Cubs fan and I remember being numb for a week after they blew the NLCS. It ruined my enjoyment of life for a short time.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||This is kind of nit picky but||
This is kind of nit picky but I wish that they could just say "Michigan vs. Louisville" in graphics instead of "4 Michigan vs. 1 Louisville". I don't know why but it bothers me....this is the championship game..seeds don't matter anymore. To me it only makes sense within the regions. Once you get to the Final Four it shouldn't matter.
Yes, I'm ready for the game to start! LOL
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Miss please||

Not looking good....don't have any answers for this zone if they arent hitting shots.

This zone sucks....

They replayed all the Michigan tourney games throughout the day yesterday except strangely the Kansas game. Was fun to watch them destroy the VCU press again as well.

someone please gif that picture of all michigan fans celebrating except one pissed off UF fan.

You have to pick right now..... Mitch McGary or Robert Traylor. Who do you want for one game?
