Yeah OP needs to do some serious reading about Hillsborough...
Not to mention the fact that a fence surrounding the pitch was a proximate cause of the crush--if it wasn't for the fence the crowd could have spilled over onto the pitch and possibly alleviated the crush sooner.

04/25/2016 - 8:32pm Nice post but minor

Nice post but minor clarification: the third tier of English football is League One, not the First Division.
League One was actually the Second Division prior to the 04-05 season when they restructured the Football League (the formerly highest collection of leagues in the English football pyramid prior to the top clubs breaking away to form the Premier League before the 92-93 season), and before the Premier League existed League One was technically the Football League Third Division.

02/06/2016 - 4:13pm I'm the biggest Beilein homer

I'm the biggest Beilein homer you'll find, and I've always tried to stay sanguine about his program after we experience weak stretches of poor play like the one that just passed. But I'm beginning to have my doubts.
I feel like Michigan fans' opinions of Beilein during the peak years of 2012-14 could always be split into roughly two categories: those who thought "ok, here's what happens when you have a phenomenal coach finally get to coach at a place with Michigan's resources" and those who thought "this guy is a phenomenal coach, but he's really struck gold with a few phenomenal players." I used to be firmly in the former camp, but I find myself drifting more and more into the latter.
I think many of us believed that simply because a certain group of players in the program from roughly 2012-14 developed so quickly and astoundingly that it was primarily down to the coaching staff's ability to identify diamonds in the rough and superbly develop them. But the feat simply has not been repeated.
Walton did not become the next Burke. Dawkins is not the next GRIII or Tim Hardaway, Jr. Doyle is not going to be the next Jordan Morgan. I love the guy, but Duncan Robinson is in all likelihood not the next Stauskas.
More and more it's becoming evident that what we witnessed was a brief magnificent window where a group of really special players were getting coached and developed by a really special coach, but one for whom such talent was not normally accessible and will never be again because of the way he recruits. It is what it is.
I remember how thrilling it was when this team first started to get good enough to make the tournament again from 2008-2012, and how (mostly) happy we were then because of the shit basketball that had preceded it for 15 years. And that was the level I think most of us thought Beilein could get us to when he was hired. And I think that's basically where we're now returning to. Decent, clean program, good enough to usually beat inferior teams and occasionally beat superior ones, maybe good enough to make the second weekend of the tourney from time to time. It's just that it sucks to be returning to that level after the heights we scaled.

Yes, he rode on the backs of at least 4 players, all of whom he recruited, whose careers overlapped and collectively spanned 6 seasons.
What a fluke.
If John Beilein hasn't done enough across almost a decade of leading this program to prove what a terrific coach he is then you have impossibly high standards.
This team will improve during the season, I'm sure of it. It's just going to be frustrating while this group--who because of last year's injuries largely has not played together yet for any extended period--gels together.
They've looked like hot garbage so far, I know, but I think everyone is pushing the panic button waaaay too early.
