03/05/2018 - 8:31am Good point

about the other point guards on the list.  I still can't believe Z didn't make BIG all-defensive team.  Maybe he can get some national recognition for his defense ...

03/21/2014 - 4:13pm Don't settle

I hope we don't settle for too many jump shots and try to attack inside.  We are a very good free-throw shooting and we should attack their bigs a bit.

03/21/2014 - 3:29pm Kenpom loves Tennessee

I was surprised to see Kenpom ranks Tennessee #8 even though they had 12 losses.  I guess they are balanced offensively and defensively. 

09/05/2013 - 8:32am Silverlight

I seem to have a lot of problems with Silverlight on my mac.  What is the deal on that?

05/07/2013 - 11:27pm Team

He was signed by St. Louis, right?  ....Titus Young, former St. Louis Ram....

04/01/2013 - 1:10pm Hmm...

Hmm... a lot less trapping than I thought.  Crisp passing was key to some of those breakdowns.  I'd like to see GRob in high post and TJH at the top initiating with TB on a wing w/ threat of dribble penetration on the wing against the off guard/forward

04/01/2013 - 8:53am Offensive Rebounds

I'm wondering how good of a defensive rebounding team Syracuse is and whether we'll have Oreb chances out of their zone.  I don't think Syr is going to push the pace so it seems like we'll really have to crash the boards and box out MCW.

10/11/2012 - 2:33pm I was surprised

I was surprised that is more of a pitchers' park than Comerica:

Comerica is pretty much middle of the pack. 


04/11/2012 - 5:15pm Stream

Anyone know if there is a stream for this game?

Go Wings!

02/21/2012 - 10:23am Don't worry

Don't worry.  They know what they are doing.  The conversation went like this:

SM:  Coach, what receivers do you want?  

CH:  I can't comment on any potential players before LOIs are signed.  But in general we want receivers that are tall, fast, hungry, physical, tough, and that love UM.

SM:  Okay, coach, I'll see what I can do.  



06/30/2011 - 11:02am FO

I think FO is Fouls On, i.e. how many times that player was fouled by the other team.

06/23/2011 - 6:42pm Kanter looks

good - would be a good pick for the Jazz.  How did Memo do this year?

06/23/2011 - 6:34pm I could see

that working out but I'd hate it if they field a team with Parker, Stuckey, Gordon, and WIll Bynum and no true center. 

I don't see a great move for the Pistons here.  I think the trade down for two picks would provide more options.  Jeremy Tyler is a project and risk but could be a value pick at 23

06/23/2011 - 6:13pm A trade for Tony Parker

would be an absolute disaster and i would jump on the fire Dumars bandwagon.

Trade down for two first round picks please.

06/10/2011 - 1:16pm Paul Revere

No, that was Paul Revere's warning to the British - go back or die.  Sorry to bust your chops but historical accuracy and all that.

05/27/2011 - 5:35pm Another Trade

Maybe they are going to trade another reliever for an infielder (third baseman)?  Otherwise, this doesn't seem to make a lot of sense.


05/24/2011 - 6:37pm Good Luck Tate

Loved the ND win his freshman year.

05/24/2011 - 11:16am Yeah...

there's no "I" in wings.  Oh.  Um... they lost their wings? 

Good one.

05/24/2011 - 11:12am Thanks...

but I stole it from Ralph Waldo Emerson

05/24/2011 - 10:58am You might be right

You might be right.

I do hate the look of the helmet stickers first and foremost.  Everytime I see other teams with the stickers, I think it looks tacky and I'm grateful we don't use them.

Perhaps I was being lazy when I referenced the "team" quote above. 

Regardless of what Bo thought about the stickers, I personally believe that the stickers weaken the team concept.  I'm all for internal recognition among teammates and the coaches for great plays but I think that: (1) making it public; and (2) making it "permanent" (for the season) both place way too much emphasis on individual aspects over the team.  Also, it just seems petty to me -- as if players cared more about stickers than wins.  

I understand that other fans may disagree and ultimately it is probably just a matter of taste


05/24/2011 - 10:47am I don't like your logic either

The logical conclusion being that ... Michigan footbal ... is ... helmet stickers?

I'll go with UM = iconic; helmet stickers - not. 

05/24/2011 - 10:41am I agree

I agree.  The helmet stickers were a mistake.

As pointed out, Bo started the stickers at Miami.  Perhaps by the time he delivered the famous "team" comment, he'd realized by then that the stickers had run their course. 

Anyway, a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.

05/24/2011 - 6:38am No Stickers

I personally hate the stickers.

The team, the team, the team.


05/20/2011 - 8:57am For the record

Good luck Darius!

We wish you the best -- you will always be part of the Michigan family.


02/04/2011 - 9:29am Thanks!

Thanks for the analysis and discussion.  You've convinced me that there is still hope we can make it as an at-large team. 

PSU is going to be a tough game -- we had our hands full here in AA (though the students were out of town so the crowd wasn't its best).  I do like the way we've played lately, so hopefully we can contain Battle and beat them on the road.



08/20/2010 - 12:55pm Mark May

"Pac-10 blah blah blah.  Yes, Pac-10 blah blah blah.  Blah blah blah blah Pac-10."

Stop already - we get it.

08/17/2010 - 7:18am Thanks!

Love the series so far.

Thanks for putting all of this together - it will make MGoBlog a more informed and educated forum - and it will make football more interesting and enjoyable!


08/05/2010 - 10:10am Will Campbell

We need Will Campbell to be a disruptive force, not just a rotation player.  That is the only way I see our defense having any hope of stopping power run games.  Campbell and Martin in there together.

07/23/2010 - 12:49pm Campbell

Will Campbell has to be a beast this year for us.  Otherwise, I'm worried.

07/13/2010 - 1:03pm Fugitive

Fugitive and Witness both better than AFO.

By the way, didn't HF's wife or ex-wife write the screenplay to Seven Years in Tibet?


01/14/2010 - 3:20pm "You know the school"

Wasn't it Woodson who for a while introduced himself with:

"You know the school"

It was a couple of years after he won the Heisman - I used to love that.

12/11/2009 - 3:23pm Jerekbo

I've been impressed with Jerekbo. I like Tay a lot but Jerekbo's hustle is exciting and he doesn't hold the ball the way Tay does. There are nights where he will be a better match-up than Tay given his better athleticism.

11/17/2009 - 5:13pm What's YOUR deal?


11/16/2009 - 8:16pm Cazzie Russel

Hard to believe Cazzie Russel never had a triple double.

11/16/2009 - 8:14pm I'll take it

At this point, we need the practice time a bowl allows - any bowl!

11/16/2009 - 6:05pm DLine

Arrrrggh. Hopefully we can still get another big time DLine commitment.

11/11/2009 - 1:51pm DL

Thanks for the update. I'm still hoping that we can get a DL for 2010 - that is going to be an area of serious need.
