Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

|1 day 23 hours ago||The pain||
is why they do not talk about it.
|1 day 23 hours ago||My father-in-law is 92.||
He flew an SB2C HellDiver off of the USS Phillipine Sea in WW2.
To this day he can tell you exactly how to fly that plane, dive and hit the target, and catch the cable to land it.
He grew up the son of a share-cropper. His mother had died in child birth. They had no electricity or running water. His sister sewed his pants from horse blankets.
He is one tough SOB. I know of nobody in my (baby boom) generation who could match his mental & physical ruggedness.
"The greatest generation", indeed!
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Despite all his success,||
(2 Olympic Golds, 1 Stanley Cup, World Championship, Junior World Championships)
Babcock is still underated.
Another coach with the same players could have easily lost this tournament.
Under great pressure, Babcock just outcoached (by far) the best coaches in the world.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||What does Sidney Crosby say?||
"I think he instills a lot of confidence in the group," Crosby said of Babcock. "He leads by example and I think you can see that he trusts every guy out there, and the situations he puts them in, he puts them in for a reason. Definitely to have a group come together this quick isn't easy, and everyone's kind of laughing at the ball hockey in August, but you know what, all those little things go a long way sometimes. He definitely did a great job, his whole staff, of preparing us and getting us ready for all the adjustments we needed to make on the big ice."
If you watch the video, you can hear what Pierre LeBrun says.

put Michigan in your last chart (Race for #1), just to show where we stand vs the top 5.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||That was an Inside Zone Run!||
Marshall Lynch just scored that long touchdown on an inside zone run.
I learned that today by reading the diary from "Eye of the Tiger" on MGOBLOG
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Brandon watched RichRod||
crash and burn becaue of a bad defensive coordinator (or 2).
Brandon does not want his choice for H.C. to fail for the same reason. My bet is that Brandon was the impetus behind Hoke's move to fire Borges & hire Nussmeier.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Dave Brandon / Brady Hoke||
What part did Brandon play in this firing of Borges and hiring of Nussmeier?
Would Hoke have made the change on his own?
|15 weeks 1 day ago||injured||
We are not being told about it, but when I watch Gardner, I see a guy who is in constant pain, and getting beat up more on every play.
He is a true warrior to keep going out there and taking hits for his team.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Dantonio||
Dantonio is an excellent coach, as is Narduzzi.
No doubt, the better team won the game.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Offensive Line||
It is all about the offensive line.
Coach Funk is a fail.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Academic chapter on knee braces reducing risk of ACl tear:||
On the basis of the data published in that paper, we compute that the rate of ACL injury in the nonbraced cadets was 3.0 times higher (95%CI: 1.0-9.2) than in braced cadets. It should be noted that the number of ACL injuries was small. Only 16 ACL injuries occurred: four in the braced and 12 in the nonbraced condition.

I wonder how Toussaint feels when he lines up to carry the ball into such a poorly designed / coached play?su
|21 weeks 3 hours ago||The Problem is Coaching||
Not the players.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||A||
It will take 3 more years to build an offensive line.
That would be true if Schembechler were your coach.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||What Goes Around...||
I was at the UM overtime win against Penn State in 2002. That was one of the best games I have ever attended. I will never forget it.
So yesterday you have Penn State...a proud old program with great fans...humiliated by the scandal and loaded down with drastically limited scholarships and a bowl ban for years to come.
Despite all that, they packed their stadium with 108,000 loyal fans. The team played their hearts out, and their freshman quarterback played well. And in a 4 overtime circus, they won. This game will be the highlight of their season, and those fans will never forget it. Good for them and good for their program.
I hate the loss.
Michigan did not deserve to win.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Gardner||
Devin Gardner is a turnover machine.
Michigan cannot run the ball.
That is all.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||Knee Braces?||
Why do we not put all linemen in steel kneee braces to prevent at least some of these injuries?
300 pound linemen are a natural set-up to put a large amount of abnormal stress on their relatively little knees. In playing their positions they do not need to pivot as much as a running back or cornerback or quarterback does. I would think the minor loss of mobility could be compensated and the potential gain from avoiding injuries would be significant.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||Since your O-Line is very weak,||
Why are you not throwing more quick-outs?
|24 weeks 2 days ago||Darrell Funk||
Needs to be replaced. His offensive line play is atrocious for the 3rd consecutive year.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||Moneyball||
ABC put Michigan - UConn on prime-time TV...So the suits decided that the New York audience would be biggest they could get Saturday night.
This is the same reason that the B1G expanded to Maryland / New Jersey.

I hate Texas almost as much as I hate Notre Dame.
So Gerg and his beaver are going to the Longhorns!
|26 weeks 2 days ago||The Stadium Renovation||
was designed to increase the noise in what was previously known as the most quiet stadium in the country.
Since then, the Big House has become an extremely difficult place for opponents to play.
Not to take anything away from one hell of a great coach!
|27 weeks 1 day ago||Injuries||
The Wolverines certainly understand how these injuries can impact the fortunes of the team.
Nobody wants to see these dedicated, talented student-athletes get injured.
Best of luck to them and their team.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||Facilities||
Remember who the audience is!
Brandon is speaking to the Alumni, a.k.a. DONORS.
He wants them to give money for facilities!
So he is going to talk about how important they are, and he is going to remind his coaches to talk about how important their facilities are to their teams' success.

are great: Gordie howe, Ted Lindsay, Alex Delvecchio.

There are laws that protect patient confidentiality.
These photos were taken by someone with access to the patient in the operating room.
They certainoly should not be on the internet.
Whoever made them public could be in big trouble.

Shawn Hunwick came out of the NAHL!
He played in Alpena 2006-2007

I think that a big part of this success started when Beilein changed his assistant coaches.

My daughter graduated IOE, joined a consulting firm, left and earned her MBA from Carnegie-Mellon. Now she is an executive at Siemens Inc..
My son graduated ME, and is doing very cool (and secret) stuff for the U.S. Navy.
