So many good shows, so little time... Just watch s3 ep2 of Veep. The comedic writing just gets better and better... very looking forward to Fargo. Will watch before catching up on Game of Thrones.

Way too many unknowns... but take Arizona to win it all ; )
|1 day 9 hours ago||Mitch is worth a flyer late in the first round||
if he has had good work outs. Much moreso then GR3. I'm going with Sam Webb's not gut feeling that Mitch will join the other two. Good luck to them all.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Very sorry for your loss||
She is at peace in the great big Meeeeechigan Valhalla with Bob Ufer, Bo, Fielding H Yost et al.

No need to hate on kids who go early. This is just the system we live in and part of the sport of basketball. If anything I see the UM's success continuing this trend. 3 and 4 stars with NBA dreams will flow to UM (like they do to mort of the upper half of the B1G) be developed and bolt in two or three years, whether we think they are good enough. Guys who put off the pros such as Adrian Payne and mItch McGary are unique.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Don't care if they are 5 stars who don't develop or walk ons||
that become All-Americans, it's all about wins and losses and championships. Different styles can get it done but Hoke,like RichRod was, will be judged on bottom line results. We can argue till the cows come home about the effectiveness of the assistant coaches (the guys who really develop the players) but unless you have honest access to the players you probably are just guessing. If Hoke beats MSU, OSU or ND and gets a minimum of nine wins based on this weak schedule, he'll get more years. If not, the $ donors will turn up the heat on DB. This is how it works at any school that has the facilities/expectations and donors that UM has, not some sort of unscientific barometer of player development.
|3 days 2 hours ago||Look for the Union label||
they work hard but who's complaining...
|3 days 2 hours ago||Terrific!||
Just terrific : )
|3 days 5 hours ago||Yeah I was being nice... I heard plenty of boos||
and it was like near Bettman. A lot of women in our group were talking about Ms BD's plastic surgeries too lol. On a serious note if I see many Bettman moments coming up if Brady doesn't get this team to nine wins with a win over either MSU, OSU or Bowl game.
|3 days 16 hours ago||exactly Don||
I'm thinking that everyone wearing Maize and Blue was super pumped after a historic championship and would have cheered even Tom Izzo.
We debate on this site on DBs effectiveness, especially for the average UM fan who at times seems to be taken for granted, and more seem anti-DB than pro-DB. Some of it is his ultra business approach and some is his love of the spotlight and perceived self importance.
Personally I have mixed feelings, and may feel better when this football nightmare is over - but I found it very telling that even a gymnastics crowd was not enthusiastic towards him. Probably DB merits his own topic.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Kudos to you. Hope you go to UM||
We need more students /alums who follow non revenue sports and know the history of our great school (academically and athletically). The gynmastics championships was about as good a value as one can get for sports entertainment - three hours of non-stop, intense entertainment.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Sam to compete in 4 individual events today||
He has a chance to become the most decorated NCAA gymnast ever. When he does I do think we begin the debate of the greatest UM athlete ever.
|4 days 54 min ago||Dave Brandon helped present the awards||
When he was introduced to the crowd which was half Michigan fans, there was a no cheering, but rather a sort of nervous murmur reaction. I'm not calling it a Gary Bettman reaction, but it was uncomfortable.
|4 days 1 hour ago||Crisler Center was rockin tonight!||
Very impressed by how hard all six teams pulled for all their guys. Sam fell on the high bar right in front of me. Immediately he recomposed himself and his team just got him charged up to more than salvage a good score. He then went to the floor where he just totally redeemed himself to put an exclamation point on UM's title. A great day to be in A2. Go Blue!!
|4 days 8 hours ago||Trampoline? You must old like me...||
I remember them in high school and State Championships in Michigan. Yeah Title IX hasn't done some men's sports any favors...Also mixing a couple threads, if universities were to give football and basketball players stipends/benefits, wouldn't they have to give them to all athletes in all sports, BOTH men and women? Can't imagine how many universities could afford that. Maybe 5 % of them? This whole thing is going to be a mess and the scholar athlete will go the way of the trampoline championships... anyway I'm going to Crisler tonight to enjoy some old school sports before it disappears.
|4 days 11 hours ago||Only 17 men's college gymnastics teams left||
and they all compete in the same division. I don't feel so bad paying big$ for UM football and basketball when the money is used to support all the non revenue sports. These true scholar athletes are very impressive and represent the university well.
btw there were 234 men's varsity programs in 1969!
|4 days 11 hours ago||My brother in law played hockey at Union||
I'm a huge NHL fan, but NEVER heard of Union before we met. I can't even spell Skeneckteddy. Gotta go for relatives over conference. Go Union!
|5 days 2 hours ago||He'd look good in our 1-3-1 zone||
The ball looks like a grape in his hands.
|5 days 3 hours ago||Sam Mikulak has a chance to be the greatest UM athlete ever||
I'm not counting Phelps who sort of went to classes for a few months. Of course, this is a good bar room debate and should be a topic of its own after this weekend's NCAA championship, where Sam is favored to win his third all-around NCAA title.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Crisler's Senior Night will be interesting||
Wake me up when all the rumors/moves are done. I trust Beilein to have a good team next season. Who would have thought we would have the best season in memory when McGary went down?
|1 week 2 hours ago||got two better tickets finally - thanks again||
Does anyone really think it is sold out already? I hear the benches will be in the stands so they can make the field as wide as possible. crazy.
|1 week 9 hours ago||Thanks everything worked like a charm until||
it processed my credit card/ order and then the system said busy please wait, wait, wait, and then after more10 minutes it said it was unsuccessful and kicked me off. F&CK!!
|1 week 11 hours ago||Many great players will not be playing in WC||
Bale is worth the price of admission. Saw him at White Hart Lane two years ago score a goal that was beyond words. Giggs still can deliver beautiful passes only a few can do. I really doubt if there is a near capacity crowd we will be seeing only MLS quality soccer.
|1 week 11 hours ago||Just tried to get 2 in 19 upper or lower||
and it said no tix available. Are you related to DB? ; )
|1 week 11 hours ago||Got 5 at 8:31 this AM||
Only seats I could get were upper endzone. I used the "Corner" promo. I tried later after some posted here that tickets were still available and couldn't buy a pair anywhere. I think scalpers got them as Stub Hub is loaded with tix a 3x face value.
|1 week 1 day ago||If Uconn women can get it done tomorrow||
that would be extra impressive. I think they already have a men's /women's NC double. Not really rooting for UConn but they play ND and I find it hard to root for them in anything.
|1 week 1 day ago||Wow!!!||
|1 week 1 day ago||Pistons please draft Randle||
He's better than Barkley when he was at Auburn.
|1 week 1 day ago||I agree||
One hell of a street fight. Waiting for another Harrison 3 to win it.
|1 week 2 days ago||Anyone watch Veep?||
HBO shows are the best for getting hooked. Veep new season starts tonight after GOT. Really enjoyed the last season.
