"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

I could be wrong, but Texas was at 75. Still a decent win, but I won't call it quality.

Wow. Impressive win. I wish it was against a quality opponent, but I'll take it.

You can still park at the Michigan golf course. Some may or may not know that Ann Arbor Golf and Outing is a separate golf 9-hole golf course than the Michigan golf course. Conveniently they are located directly next to each other just to confuse people.
|2 days 14 hours ago||You're trying to tell me that people expected us...||
...to play like this?! Despite having one of the easier non-conf schedules, I wasn't expecting us to win every game. But considering our lofty (right or wrong) expectations this year (i.e. top 1-2 in the conference, top 25 ranking, sweet sixteen appearance), I hope that we can at least look competent in our loses. Well, we don't look competent - these loses were not of the hard fought variety a la Villanova last year. And a good shooting night is not necessarily going to turn this team around.
As mentioned, I have a friend who is close to the bball program and has been for probably over a decade. I don't get anything too juicy from him, just his perspectives on how the team looks. And he rarely calls out specific players or talks about JB. So when I talked to my contact a couple months ago, here are some examples of his reply:
"Outside Caris, the team is of middling big ten talent"
"Not really a cohevise team yet, which could change, but I'm surprised since they usually are much farther along than this"
"There doesn't seem to be a leader on the floor, someone who can take over when needed"
"Team has no identity yet, they need to find that soon"
"This is a bubble team probably, maybe NIT for this team."
Have a great Thanksgiving

|4 days 2 hours ago||I don't think losing to a good Xavier team was the issue||
It was how we lost. It wasn't a hard fought close loss like we had against Villanova last year. The Xavier game was much different - we were pretty much pathetic in every phase of the game. It was a little alarming, considering how much hype we have (whether deserved or not). I'm certainly not jumping off the bandwagon, but I'm also certainly not going to gloat another team's pathetic lose (even OSU's). It seems as though we may be in from some embarrassing loses this season as well.

"Brady Hoke is a great guy. He arrived at Michigan and immediately went 11-2 and won a BCS bowl, before falling on hard times because he had to work with Rich Rodriguez's players"
I think he fell on hard times for many more other reasons than having to work with Rich Rod players.

A family of people the started and own some of the most iconic companies in the world. Most noteably now, they own Hyatt hotels and one of the major cruise lines.
I think the family has like 15 billionnaires within them.
$100M is a small fraction of the family wealth.
