I'll try to embed, but likely fail.

MBB is on a boat.  Teske wearing normal human size goggles when he is not a normal human size. Brazdeikis showing the articles about him being jacked for a freshmen are not fluff. Jordan Poole wearing snowboarding goggles.  

This team is going to be so fun to watch.

 

Semi OT: Podcasts and Twitter Follows and a good SEC podcast on Shea

Semi OT: Podcasts and Twitter Follows and a good SEC podcast on Shea

Submitted by The Man Down T… on August 23rd, 2018 at 8:58 PM

I try to walk an hour or so each day and as part of it, I line up various podcasts on my phone on YouTube. While looking, I came across this podcast from SECFans on YouTube discussing Shea starting for Michigan and how much it will or will not help. They did a very good analysis and are actually more positive on last season than most of us are. They discuss Shea's performances at Ole Miss and how that will translate to Michigan with his "gunslinger" tendencies and all.  This podcast occurred before Harbaugh announced Shea as the starter.

Unbelieveably inspiring story about this young man who endured losing his mother at the age of 7, growing up with an alcoholic father, and overcoming homelessness on his way to gaining admission to Michigan's Nursing school and competing for a walk-on spot this coming year.

 

Just read the damn article.

They are on ESPN2 right now.

Katelyn Flaherty of Michigan is shooting in women’s three point competition. She also participated in a team shots challenge a few minutes ago.

Edit: Flaherty wins the womens’s competition and then comes up short against the men’s champion from William’s and Mary.

32 wins = most ever!

When the announcer during the A&M game said this was by far Beilein's best team, I was a bit skeptical still. But now they've won more than any team in Michigan basketball history! If they play their best ball, they can beat anyone. And I fully expect them to win the whole thing at this point. Regardless of whether they're better than the '13 squad, they've taken their place in Michigan history and are bringing home at least 2 banners and a win record to show for it. Congrats boys!

Last night tied the single season wins record

Last night's win gave the team 31 wins on the season, tying the school's single season record. The other two teams to reach 31 wins were the 2012-2013 Burke-led team and the 1992-1993 sophomore Fab Five team (both of which made it to the championship game).

No matter what happens tomorrow, this is an all-time great UM basketball team, but a win puts them as the all-time great, at least by this metric.

Not bad considering we were just hoping for a tourney berth back in November.
