04/08/2014 - 4:52pm The way I see it..

The way I see it, teams that had a positive change in ranking from the pre-Tournament poll to this poll "outperformed" their expectations in the tournament. This list includes:

  • UConn (obviously)
  • Kentucky (obviously)
  • Wisconsin (expected to lose to Zona)
  • Michigan
  • Sparty (meh)
  • UCLA

I like being part of that list, though I would have liked to see us outperform more.

03/26/2014 - 2:52pm Likely

I'd say that's likely, so as not to take too much attention away from The Team finishing the season strong. Also, probably out of respect for Gibbons in the short term...

03/25/2014 - 9:19pm Justin Dickens

Justin Dickens used to be the keeper of Brady Hoke's truths, probably behind all of the "Devin Gardner has a thing with his ankle, we'll see how that thing effects him." Everyone talked to Dickens before they spoke to the press and he told them what they should and shouldn't say. I assume that's the Brian relation.

The Director of Football Operations is a pretty important role for all the logistics in the program which is why it's newsworthy. Hoke's first D of Fball Ops was Bob Lopez until he got promoted to Associate Athletic Director when Mike Vollmar left for Tennessee. Then Nolan Jones took over last season, replaced by Justin Dickens.

03/25/2014 - 4:58pm More tattoos =

More tattoos = more playing time = more B1G titles. Direct correlation. 

03/21/2014 - 11:57am Weather?

 

"But the Michigan visit made me go in depth about why UCLA was the right place for me. A lot went into the decision and it wasn't made just for football. I'm going to the university where I fit best in all aspects."

 

Sounds like "all aspects" has a bit to do with the weather...

03/08/2014 - 5:14pm In other news...

In other news, Ohio lost 7-5 at Hofstra today to move to 1-4 on the season. I like this.

02/26/2014 - 11:22pm Trey Burke

Trey Burke hit a pretty big shot pretty late in the game one time. Wasn't a buzzer beater or a winner but I'll take any opportunity to bring this up.

 

02/11/2014 - 11:45pm Last time @ MSU and OSU

Last time Michigan BBall won @ OSU and @ MSU in the same season was the 1996-97 season. I think we all remember the ensuing Michigan Football season... Go Blue!

02/11/2014 - 12:14am Brother Jon plays football

Seems like it makes sense we picked up a commitment from this kid. His brother Jon is a walk-on WR on the football squad (link). 

02/05/2014 - 3:11pm MSU's Campus

MSU's campus is literally Michigan's North Campus in appearance. Everything is so spread out and there are huge plots of grass everywhere. You're always so far away from everything: 10 minute walk to most places in AA vs. 45 minute walks in East Lansing...can't imagine how that sounds attractive.

01/26/2014 - 10:50pm Stauskas' girl...Goddess

Goddess.

04/14/2013 - 12:42am Mott*

Mott Hospital is not the same as Mott's Apple Sauce. Classic mixup.

04/08/2013 - 12:23am Which street

This is just despicable. Which street was this on?

04/08/2013 - 12:19am So much respect

So much respect for Jordan humbly taking his spot on the bench and transitioning to the role player we need him to be. The switch completely changed our game and all the props to him for knowing when we need him and being ready.

03/14/2013 - 10:24am Great Event

 

This is an excellent event. I ran in the 10K last year and it was really well run. They had a ton of B1G mascots there and I had the pleasure of speeding past Dhani Jones towards the end of the race.

The best part is the last mile when you see Sparties or Buckeyes slightly ahead of you, the hate gives you the motivation to turn on the jets to beat them out. Felt surprisingly great...rivalry.

12/09/2012 - 12:31pm Our boys better

Our boys better be on their game when the Eagles come to AA. I don't want to feel like I did in the second half of that Arkansas game yesterday...

12/03/2012 - 10:50am Good Night for Brandon

With the pressure on to lock down a starting spot, Brandon really came through.

 

Congrats to him and he was rewarded with a nice writeup.

07/31/2012 - 5:35pm A lot less severe than expected

When I first saw this news story, I was thinking dismissal from the team for at least one of the two so this situation because a lot less severe than I originally thought it could be. It's a shame those two have to miss it. I wonder if they'll still be allowed to at least travel to Ireland?

07/31/2012 - 3:31pm Carvin Johnson recovered that fumble

Carvin Johnson recovers that fumble on the next play after the BWC mauling. Anyone know recent news on Carvin? 

07/25/2012 - 10:55am Painful

Man it was painful to hear those guys talk, good intentions but poor execution. Not sure if it would have been better for them to script that (which it really seemed they did) or to wing it. They won't be politicians one day, we know that at least.

07/20/2012 - 2:50pm Stonum to Baylor

I still lack the points necessary to post a new thread...sigh.

 

But Stonum recently tweeted a Baylor Bears logo...it's on

06/13/2012 - 7:37pm Browsing around Inside Lacrosse..

Browsing around the website I found that National Champion Loyola Freshman Attackman Adam Pomper died yesterday. It doesn't seem like much is known about cause of death but definitely very sad news.

05/10/2012 - 7:26pm Chris Rock was

Chris Rock was falling behind the rest of his class, hardly ever seeing the field this spring. It's best for the program and future classes...

05/07/2012 - 2:17pm New type of recruiting?

Maybe it's time for someone to open up a recruiting site for the rankers? Rivals, ESPN, 24/7, Scout all extending offers to 5 star 17-year old...and he picks Rivals. This could be big.

02/16/2012 - 12:38am Clover in teeth

Add some clovers in his teeth or maybe like a leprechaun leg in his teeth to incorporate ND.

01/04/2012 - 2:37pm Jordan Payton

Jordan Payton just posted on his twitter that he's "ready to make an announcement." Timing-wise, this would appear positive for Team 133.

12/17/2011 - 6:20pm In addition to..

"Gifts are given out annually by the bowl to participating teams and are not allowed to exceed $550. Virginia Tech and Michigan players will have their pick of items from a gift suite in addition to a Reactor watch, New Era hat and Majestic fleece pullover."

12/12/2011 - 7:58pm Payton tweeted

Payton tweeted the other day about getting back to LA and how much he loves California. I think we'll have a hard time pulling this guy from the Cali life. I'd say he's a strong lean to Cal.

11/25/2011 - 10:28pm What's what?

The football teams managers (practice, gameday assistants catching footballs and running drills) beat Ohio's managers in the first annual game tonight.

11/25/2011 - 10:09pm Michigan Managers beat Ohio Managers

Michigan's Managers beat Ohio's Managers tonight 39-6 in Glick Fieldhouse. Don't have enough points to thread it but we Beat Ohio in the first annual. Go Blue!

11/21/2011 - 3:42pm Vogrich and Novak

Vogrich and Novak look like they're about to die out there. We need some oxygen to the bench.

10/31/2011 - 10:19pm From the Left it is

From the left it is Steve Watson, Ryan Van Bergen, Jared Van Slyke, David Molk, and Brendan Gibbons.

10/22/2011 - 11:59am Chances are

If he's playing in the Freshman game and hasn't even been moved up to JV yet, he's got something wrong with him you didn't notice...

10/19/2011 - 2:33pm What time/where?

What time is the announcement/where can we follow it?

10/05/2011 - 11:23pm Hunwick with the point!

Lotta respect to Hunny for getting an assist on the night.

10/04/2011 - 9:34am #1 too Special

If Junior was a sophomore or junior, I could see giving him the jersey in the future but I'm not sure he's on the level Braylon was yet. Gallon still has strides to be made, seeing as how he was a border-line scout player last year. Stonum has had too rocky of a past to come in and steal the #1 jersey for his Senior year.

Finally, if the other team has a player that wears #1 and starts on O or D, you'll see the #1 jersey in practice. Coach Hoke made a pretty solid point that #1, #2, and #21 will from here on out be very difficult to earn and are no small feat. I doubt we'll ever see a mid-season change to these.

09/19/2011 - 12:38pm But it was Eastern

If we couldn't get him on the field during Eastern, when is he going to get reps this season? This was the game to give him a half to play. I can't say I agree with Hoke/Borges on this.

08/16/2011 - 1:40pm Practice

Although it would be awesome to see practice, if you're peaking anywhere near the field you'll be asked to leave pretty quickly as practice is "private" according to the football program. However, if you really want to watch, go to the Stadium bride over State Street. Good enough viewing point there.

08/02/2011 - 7:42pm Detroit Lions

Hometown team, follow them out of hope. This year, I think the hope will pay off.

 

p.s. According to Greg Banks' twitter, he is now on the Lions. Congrats to him.
