It's gonna take 3 days of great prelim performances.
You win championships by getting second swims. We need a lot of A and B finalists. And diving has to put up points.
W Swim clinched the B1G because of a 60-point diving performance on the final day after being down 30 after day 2.

Twitter has helped me keep a closer eye on our teams.
I've been having notifications for U-M teams sent to my phone back when I had a metroPCS phone through SMS twitter.

It's just clueless.
Hockey and MBB both played OSU at the same time. Hockey wasn't even televised so the AD had the say when it would be played.
MBB season opener took place the same time as a Hockey game against top-5 Boston U, who we wound actually beating that night.
The scheduling makes no sense. You're cutting into your attendance, and what a surprise, neither game sold out in either of those examples.
I'm sure John Beilein found playing Howard at 9pm completely necessary.

Lest we forget the lovely scheduled game after the football game on 11/26 against Mount St. Mary's.
AD scheduling is clueless. I've outlined it before. The decisions make no sense for the people. Shouldn't you want to maximize your attendance? More people means more money.

The student section is a joke now since the renovation.
The put the parents in the freaking middle of them. The entire East side of Yost used to be the student section. And they used to be on the glass.

That announcer is new, and holy cow does he suck. It's obnoxious as hell.
We used to have the Tigers announcer who yelled but he only yelled when the crowd noise dictated it.

If we're really good, we sell out our 9pm games because they're usually WORTHY of being late games (OSU mustard and ketchup bottle game in 2013, MSU in 2012, 2013 etc.)
But forget about it if we aren't good. Which is understandable. I was offered free student section tickets from a friend who had a test the next day for the MSU game this year and I couldn't do it because it was at 9pm. I wouldn't get back to where I live until 1am.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Yeah. The grand entrance is||
Yeah. The grand entrance is beautiful and they did a great job, but something is missing.
It's almost too clean. Same thing with Yost, but they completely neutered that place. No one is afraid to play at Yost anymore.
I wonder what would've happened if we had kept basketball at Yost Field House and just renovated the place and built hockey an arena on Crisler's land. Although Yost Field House was not exactly a great venue back then. There were pigeons and bats that used to fly around during games.

It just makes you look even dumber when you double down on your uneducated hawt takes, even when they're proven to be flat-out wrong like the one at the top of the thread. Me negging your threads (thread votes don't even count btw) makes you have a panic attack. You've freaked out at me before for negging you.

You just said the defenses were among the worst in the country.
They were just proven to not be.

Longest NCAA Tournament appearance streak:
Learn the history.
We've had great teams in decades, but we've also had mediocre or bad stretches. No sustained success for a long period of time.
If you wanna find out why, read this book. It's quite sad.

After the way their coach slit his wrists in the postgame presser last year, I'm guessing they've had that game circled since the schedule came out.
I don't have good vibes about that game.

OP had this one saved in his drafts since last year, probably.
I was pissed at Beilein and staff and on the "move in a different direction side" when the season looked dead in the water after OSU, but then we did two things in back to back games that we hadn't done since I was pooping my diapers.
Back away and wait and see. Now is not the time for a yellin' thread unless it's about the shit-fer-brains refs.
Should we be okay with *just* being a 6 to 10 seed? No. But we're not getting rid of the guy if we make the tournament, so this discussion is moot.
We would get laughed out the door with any candidate if we fired Beilein after making the tournament.

It's awfully interesting how shitty the refs have been towards us in just about every sport since Harbaugh got here. All of them B1G refs, too.

Flaherty has been great for us. Unfortunately she had a rough game in this game.
Basketball seasons contain peaks and valleys unless you're UConn WBB. People were on the ledge here when we lost to PSU in MBB in 2012-13 and had the rough patch. It happens when you play a lot of games.
What matters is how you respond. One win clinches a double bye.

So go ahead and have a meltdown.
Forgive me for not cutting myself over one bad loss in a season where we will break the program win total and go to the NCAA Tournament.
There will be more opportunities because we're recruiting at a historic level here and the results are coming.
Appreciate the personal shot, though. Stay classy, "Coach".

Casual fans like winning.
You build a fanbase by winning games consistently. Not just one-off games that are promoted like crazy.
Then people will show up for more than just games against one team.

Let's take it easy.
We're 21-7 with one win needed to clinch a double bye. Next game is against last place Nebraska at home.
Today was a bad game. Our first one of the season.

Nebraska has been in the B1G for 6 years.
We have not played them at Alumni Field ONCE.

Tera with her second straight start and win.
29 batters faced, 6 hits, 2 runs and 5 K. Not bad at all against a decent team. Great to see.
Also great to see us hitting home runs so frequently this weekend.
Canfield is starting to emerge as a really nice piece.
The next 10 games will be streamed on FloSoftball. It's $20 for a subscription. Definitely worth it. They do a pretty good job.

Vanessa Krause and Astrid Swenson go 2-3 in the 200 FLY!!!!!!!! HUGE!!!!!!!
Michigan's got 61 points coming in Platform diving. Indiana only has one entrant in the A final and Wisconsin has 0 and only 1 scorer.
We are the top seed in the final relay by 4 seconds.
