I’m pretty sure posbang is one word. Otherwise it looks a bit awkward.

05/09/2018 - 12:10am I wish we worked together ha

I wish we worked together ha ha! Although we may get ourselves into trouble.

05/09/2018 - 12:06am It’s one of my favorite parts

It’s one of my favorite parts of the job! Granted, I only travel 7-10 times a year, usually for 3-4 days each.

It’s the perfect amount for me personally. It gives me a break from the office, allows me to see new places, and meet new people. Sometimes, I can extend the trip by a few days to do some sightseeing or have the wife join me for a mini vacation at half the cost.

Plus, it’s allowed me to rack up enough miles to pay for flights on my actual vacations!

05/08/2018 - 11:12pm I’m a beer tourist. When

I’m a beer tourist. When traveling for work, I like to find the best local brews (and food if possible) and get the taste of the town.

I’ve also been known to splurge if there is a local sporting event going on. Went to Boston for the first time last May. Caught a Sox game one night and Celtics playoff game the next.

I’m also a history buff, so I try to explore towns from the angle, especially when I’m on the east coast.

04/15/2018 - 11:00pm I’m pretty sure they used

I’m pretty sure they used thermite plasma rockets, assuming they were operational in time.

That is unless they saw green smoke upon approach, of course indicating that the threat had been neutralized.

04/04/2018 - 11:02am Welp I definitely won’t be

Welp I definitely won’t be watching the championship if that happens.

ND winning the title will be annoying but fine. They are a great team with great coaching, and it will be well deserved.

OSU getting a title will also be deserved, but them getting one in hockey will be a bit painful since it’s been 20 years for us now. If they beat us in the title game it will suck even more.

I guess what I’m saying is, let’s win the whole damn thing!!

04/03/2018 - 12:20am Yeah because one year

Yeah because one year outweighs the 35 before it. JB is a great offensive coach, but the guys didn’t have their stroke this season. It happens.

We also played the best defense for a Michigan team, maybe in history.

The end result was an incredible run. I have no doubts or regrets about this season. We were the 2nd best team in the country this season for the 2nd time in the past 6 years. And I’ve loved every minute of it!

03/29/2018 - 9:49am I think the issue lies in the

I think the issue lies in the number of threads about this. As you know based on the recent alumni census, there are approximately 589,000 alumni worldwide. If every one of them started a thread asking where to watch the game, that would make for a pretty crappy site.

Considering there is a list of all the places to watch, these threads are completely unnecessary. Not to mention, a simple google search for Michigan alumni association of New York would answer this question in about two minutes.

Doesn’t matter though, we’ll get no less than 15 more of these before the game Saturday.

03/28/2018 - 11:01am Is SpartanDawg an official

Is SpartanDawg an official term the university uses?

I know the term Michigan Man often rubs people the wrong way, and at times, it’s been downright misused, overused, etc.

But SpartanDawg? Really? With the “awg” spelling? I have so many questions. Where the hell did that come from, what does it mean, and who honestly thinks it’s a good idea?

If I was an alum of that school, I’d want that term to die in a fire immediately. But I’m guessing they love it over at RCMB.

03/25/2018 - 11:53pm I bought tickets from NoDak

I bought tickets from NoDak fans after tiny Jesus took them out a few years back. Loved seeing their sadness when I picked up the tickets. It a good deal too!

03/25/2018 - 11:45pm Yep been going on probably

Yep been going on probably for 10-15 years at the very least. We just haven’t got to see it much as fans these past few years.

Go Blue! Time to exorcise our St Paul demons, hopefully against Duluth! But I’d also settle for whooping the buckeyes.

03/25/2018 - 12:40am Woooooohooooooo!!!!!!! Go

Woooooohooooooo!!!!!!! Go Blue forever baby!

03/25/2018 - 12:22am Right there with you! Pouring

Right there with you! Pouring a dram of Ardbeg Uigeadail as we speak! Slainte!!

03/23/2018 - 9:01am I was on southwest for half

I was on southwest for half the game last night. CBS was available, but no TBS. Not sure about Deltas lineup.

I also paid for WiFi with the slim hope of using the MM App to watch. As expected that was a failure.

Still followed score while watching the other game on CBS. Could have been worse I guess.

03/22/2018 - 8:37pm Remember, 99 is not 100!

Remember, 99 is not 100! Gotta finish strong.

03/22/2018 - 9:46am I don’t get it either. And

I don’t get it either. And it’s extra annoying because I’ll be flying during the game. The plane does have free live TV, but guess what?

TBS is not included in the channel lineup.

03/19/2018 - 11:26pm 30 minutes?! Man I hope

30 minutes?! Man I hope not.

I love Teske, but I want Mo to play more than 10 minutes. We need to score some points in this game, and Wagner gives us a better chance of that.

03/19/2018 - 12:57am A&M plays a zone right? At

A&M plays a zone right? At least that’s what it looked like today.

Will be a challenge for us to break it down and get in amongst the trees.

And we’ll absolutely have to hit an average number of 3s. Almost all the higher seeds who have gone down have been ice cold from deep.

03/18/2018 - 9:35pm I think they had a really

I think they had a really good game today, and UNC was ice cold from 3. I’d be more concerned if we were playing them two days from now.

But with a week off and a new venue, who knows if they’ll still be on fire or if we’ll continue to struggle on offense. A season’s worth of data says we’re the better team, and that would not have been true against UNC.

03/18/2018 - 7:49pm Kenpom #7 or #29. I’m goin

Kenpom #7 or #29. I’m goin with 29 so I’m very happy about this upset.

03/16/2018 - 1:27pm If Hass and Haarms had a baby

If Hass and Haarms had a baby it would definitely be Ivan Drago.

03/16/2018 - 12:57pm The guy swung his hand into

The guy swung his hand into MAARs groin. It wasn’t just his butt. If they had a better camera angle of it, it would have been a flagrant ala Kansas on Mcgary.

03/16/2018 - 10:04am Dude he was not sending a

Dude he was not sending a message to Z. Did you watch the game? Z had two fouls in the first 5 minutes when the refs were calling everything. Beilein has no choice but to bench Z the rest of the half.

Second half starts, Z comes back in, we go up 10. Z gets two more fouls with like 5 minutes left and returns to the bench for bit. Foul trouble is the only reason he didn’t play 35 minutes.

03/16/2018 - 2:02am Anyone know if we’ll get the

Anyone know if we’ll get the same refs as tonight? They seemed determined to call everything from the tip. Then, after calling 18 fouls in the first 8 minutes, it was like they realized it was bad and totally changed the way they were calling the game. The second half was equally inconsistent.

My main concern is another game where Z is on the bench for 25 minutes. We need him for 35+ against man bun.

03/16/2018 - 12:53am Not sure that’s true. If Gray

Not sure that’s true. If Gray only goes for 15 or so, who else on their team is going to beat us?

Yeah we looked rough tonight, but we also held the Griz to less than 25 points each half.

03/15/2018 - 11:34pm I don’t think they’re against

I don’t think they’re against us. I think they’re inconsistent.

Called a bunch of cheap ones, mainly on us, in the first 10 minutes. X averages 2 fouls a game and got 2 for barely breathing on a guy. Then he sat for the next 15, and were depending on floaters from our 3rd string PG.

Then the fouls even out ad we get in the bonus with 6 minutes left. And then we didn’t shoot a single one and one.

Maybe that’s all on the players, but I think the refs just need to call it fair and even for the second half. If they do I think our talent will win out.

03/15/2018 - 11:26pm Refs called 18 or so fouls in

Refs called 18 or so fouls in the first 15 minutes and the none in the last 5. After we were in the bonus of course.

Just a weird game. Choppy, tons of stoppages, no flow. Again, mostly due to the refs. Granted, we played like crap too.

Still, we’re in the lead. So with Z back in all half, I’m thinking we’ll be fine.

03/15/2018 - 11:21pm Hopefully he can actually

Hopefully he can actually play basketball in the second half.

03/15/2018 - 1:15pm When I lived in Eugene, a

When I lived in Eugene, a local urologist would run ads before March Madness for “Snip City”.

For those of you not from Oregon, they often refer to Portland as Rip City based on something one of the Blazer announcers used to say.

It may be a case of perception creating reality, but I bet there is a huge spike in those appointments this time of year.

03/15/2018 - 1:08pm Not sure if serious?

Are you

Not sure if serious?

Are you a new fan? Do you not remember a certain stretching incident a few years back?

03/13/2018 - 9:17pm Not really possible to

Not really possible to predefine the seeds for the play-in games like that. The amount of automatic qualifiers who would otherwise not make it varies every year, so your play-in game seeds would have to vary as well.

That being said, I agree with your point. Let the 16s in and make the bubble teams play the extra game.

03/13/2018 - 12:13pm I agree with the Sweet 16

I agree with the Sweet 16 take. I won’t be disappointed in the season if we don’t make the second weekend, but it will feel like a “what if” moment.

What if the conference tourney wasn’t early this year? What if we had a week to prepare for UNC? What if we got to play a Xavier team in the EE that KenPom favors us against?

I’m hoping they can take care of business this weekend, and then leave it all on the floor in LA. This team is too good and deserving to go down on a fluke before then.

That’s not what they said at all. A few days ago they said they were set for the first time.

They did not mean that they won’t change.

03/10/2018 - 11:09pm THERE ARE NO CONFERENCE


Your observations may be true for those two games, but it has nothing to do with ACC vs Big East.

It’s frustrating that your can’t stay out of the box when you know it’s about the only way they’re likely to score. Just don’t take penalties. Don’t do it. Like ever. Just keep it 5v5 and see what happens.

03/09/2018 - 1:21am So glad it’s Friday!

So glad it’s Friday! Hopefully we’ll be celebrating a first round win this time next week.

I’m watching Pac12 b-ball right now, and it is awful. I know the B1G is down, but it’s still miles ahead of this crap. Oregon and Utah are 21 and 19 win teams, but they are an affront to decent modern b-ball. It’s not wonder neither is even sniffing the tournament.

03/09/2018 - 12:55am Pretty sure they’re having

Pretty sure they’re having nightmares about his next two years at Michigan. It’s gonna be a fun ride.

03/08/2018 - 10:48pm My only real concern is awful

My only real concern is awful officiating combined with an off shooting night. Basically, the Iowa game from the BTT. Or the game @NW.

Anything can happen come March, so losing to a 5/6 seed in the round of 32 is not impossible if the stars align poorly.

That being said, I think our defense helps drastically reduce the chance of a team shooting the lights out on us. When teams have beaten Michigan in 2018, it’s been because our offense really bogged down.

And if we make it to the second weekend, I love our chances, even against a 1 seed. Beilein with a week to prepare gives me a lot of confidence.

03/05/2018 - 10:41am One thing I’ve been thinking

One thing I’ve been thinking about with the long layoff is that our first round opponent is likely to be from a small conference. That’s especially true now that we’re (hopefully) a S16 seed.

Don’t most smaller conferences finish their tournaments early as well? Could be a bit of an equalizer in terms of rust. I’m mostly worried about the first game because I think we’ll be good to go by the round of 32.

03/05/2018 - 10:37am He certainly seemed fine

He certainly seemed fine after the game. Walking around, doing interviews, etc.

Still, I’m sure the 10 days will do him well.

03/05/2018 - 1:24am I felt pretty great after the

I felt pretty great after the 2003 Ohio State game, but other than that you’re probably right.

Other highlights since 2000 are mostly basketball and hockey. Making the finals and the elite eight in back to back years. Beating NoDak in the frozen four. And the last two years BTTs and (hopefully) NCAAs.

Football was real close to similar moments in 2006 and 2016, but couldn’t quite close the deal. They’ll get there eventually and it will be glorious.

03/04/2018 - 5:33pm Shooting at the same hoop as

Shooting at the same hoop as the second half yesterday right?

I think that’s gonna lead to good things. Purdue will hit some more 3s, but so will we.

Time to finish it boys. Win the game. Hang the banner.
