Question about Crisler Wolverine Den

Question about Crisler Wolverine Den

Submitted by sheepman on December 30th, 2016 at 11:56 AM

My father in law is thinking about renting the Wolverine Den for a BB game.  For those who have been to a game in there, questions:

(1) It looks really high up on the map. As in, $6 seat high up. How is the view?

(2) Are there any other benefits? (TV screens, etc.)

(3) How are the seats/bar stools? comfortable?

It just doesn't seem worth it to me, but I told him I would ask my mgofriends.




WBB beats Rutgers for first time in B1G opener, 63-50

WBB beats Rutgers for first time in B1G opener, 63-50

After a strong non-conference where Michigan assembled a 12-3 record with a win over a ranked team and 2 of 3 losses coming against Top-10 teams, Michigan opened B1G play earlier this afternoon against a longtime nemesis of head coach Kim Barnes Arico.

Before Michigan, she was at St. John's. A rival of Rutgers in which she turned the tide in that rivalry.

This was one of two Rutgers sports that are respectable (the other being W Soccer which went to the Final Four last year). This because they have the coaching legend C. Vivian Stringer leading their program.

Noticed I said was. Rutgers is terrible this year, entering the game today with a 3-11 record. 

RU took an early lead but Michigan fixed that in the first quarter and never looked back. It was a one point Michigan lead at half, but the Wolverines pulled away at the end of the 3rd quarter.

Prized freshman recruit Kysre Gondrezick is really starting to come along, as she again Michigan in scoring with 18. 

She was one of four Wolverines to get into double figures, as the NJ native Katelynn Flaherty had 13, Jillian Dunston had 11 and Hallie Thome had 10. 

Michigan would go on to win, 63-50. The program's first win over Rutgers (0-4 prior to today) and a 1-0 start in B1G play for the first time since 2013-14. 

Michigan will head on the road on Sunday on New Year's Day to face Wisconsin at 3pm.

Game against North Dakota, Iowa gets a rebound with about 4 seconds left and the game is well in-hand. The ND player runs up to the guy and steals the ball and lays it up at the buzzer. Fran tells his team to walk off and they don't shake hands.

Video is at the top.

I can't stand Izzo's on-court antics, but I think this dude is the worst in the conference.

FYI: Stu Douglass calls Fran a "small child".…

Serious question. Why can we not land kids like this? What are we missing from a program standpoint? These types of talents used to come to Ann Arbor in the 90s. We get these types of talents on the gridiron. It's not even about Zion per say, who is a legitimate phenom...but moreover why can we not land top 20 talents. We get into a lot of discussions about the b-ball program but it still baffles me as to how inferior we are to programs we used to compete with on the recruiting front in the modern day practice of landing star talent. The facilities......Jordan brand....recent's all there. So why does MSU and the other powers recruit circles around us? I have my theory but I'm interested to hear the honest evaluation from others.

May take the starting spot from Monte Ellis, who is currently injured. I know that naysayers of Beilein have been quite vocal about his guys in NBA so far flaming out. So I thought I'd throw this article out there for debate…
