Adidas Jersey Issues! UPDATED & EDITED

Adidas Jersey Issues! UPDATED & EDITED

Submitted by Fhshockey112002 on March 23rd, 2013 at 3:01 PM

With GR3's jersey issues today (originally reported as blood, later to be tearing) can Michigan finally get away from Adidas?   Not sure if it was widely known but the report of Michigan not having their Blue road uniforms since the Minnesota game, and would be wearing last years jerseys if the road team. 

That Minnesota game was on JANUARY 17th that is over 2 months ago, and Adidas can't get Michigan replacement jerseys? 

I know there is always a lot of complaining about the apperal that Adidas puts out but with the football jersey issues the last two seasons, and now these issues with the basketball team there has to be a change.

Edit: It appears Adidas has mad a statement about Michigan not having their road uniforms.

Adidas statement: “We have plenty of Michigan uniforms including the home white jersey they wore today. There won’t be any issues.”

ED-S: Liveblog. http://mgoblog.com/content/vcu-liveblog

 

 

Not sure if the Liveblog continues today. Big Big game today. Advancing the program, or treading water. And of course we get the only 5 seed to survive, so match-ups don't come closer than this. Rest of the bracket doesn't look like world beaters if we win today. One down, five to go. Go Blue!

NCAA Tourney: End of first round conference records

NCAA Tourney: End of first round conference records

Submitted by trueblueintexas on March 23rd, 2013 at 2:53 AM
One of the things I look at every year is conference records after each round. I always think this is one of the best indicators of how the conferences really stack up against each other. Granted match-ups have a lot to do with who wins and loses, I still think it is a good indicator of conference strength. Chart? Chart. Conference # of Bids Record Win % R64 R32 Big Ten 7 6-1 .857 7 6 Atlantic 10 5 5-0 1.000 5 5 ACC 4 3-1 .750 4 3 Pac-12 5 3- 2 .600 5 3 Big East 8 3-5 .375 8 3 MVC. 2 2-0 1.000 2 2 SEC 3 2-1 .667 3 2 Big 12 5 2-3 .400 5 2 Mountain West5 2-3 .400 4 2 Atlantic Sun 1 1-0 1.000 1 1 C-USA. 1 1-0 1.000 1 1 Ivy 1 1-0 1.000 1 1 WCC 2 2-1 .667 2 1 By the end of the tournament the Big East will always have more loses because they get the most teams in, but 3-5 in round one is really bad, especially when you add in the Georgetown upset since a 2 seed is usually good for at least one more win in the round of 32. Other things of note: big props to the A10 and MVC. The SEC showed up better than they did in the NIT. The Big 12 is showing some signs of weakness as K State and Ok St we're the second and third place teams in the conference. Yay for the B1G (even with Arggggggggggh Wisconsin). EDIT: not sure what happened to my char formatting. Will need to fix in the morning since it is already 3 AM and my little one will be waking up in 4 hours. Also, should not have done this on my iPad apparently.

I was checking to see if anyone is going to hit up downtown Detroit tomorrow for some Basketball viewing/Michigan Hockey at the Joe? Any special place for basketball viewing parties? I am hoping to get down there around noon... Maybe Neemo's then take the shuttle down to the joe... thoughts?

All of UM's "good non-conference opponents" go down in first round

So, after going through my bracket, it has become evident that I unknowingly advanced all of michigan's "tougher" non conference wins (Pitt, NC State, Kansas State). After the results thus far, obviously all three of those teams have lost: K state goes down to Lasalle in a close one (after Lasalle had already played a game) Pitt goes down to Witchita State in a non close game NC State goes down to a good Temple team. So, what does this tell us about our wins and how good we really were non conference? I understand that it is March and it could just be coincidence, however, I thought it was odd that all 3 of them lost. The one that really sticks out is K State. What do you guys think?
