Thank you!  I obviously didn't review all the linked source material

It might take the burden off of their coaches to gather feedback from the NBA for their players though.  It sounded like Beilein (& co) spent considerable time doing that for the guys the past couple years.

I wonder if this would almost become a part of the declaration.  "I'm putting my name in for the draft, but if I am not drafted I am (or am not) returning to school."  So there would be certainty for the coaches/schools no later than draft day (still deeper into the year than today, but not quite as egregious as some open-ended period post-draft.

Joel (Zoom Zoom*) Zumaya - great talent and rookie season in 2006 and then couldn't stay healthy

08/07/2018 - 1:47pm I was working in the…

I was working in the Renaissance Center at the time, on the 30th or 31st floor (I forget now, part of my career there on each).  But, conveniently for me, I'd gone on a break with a couple colleagues to get a pop from the convenience store on the main floor, so no great descent for me.  We were on our way back to the elevators and discovered the outage - some of the security team were there talking on their walkies with others so we knew at that point it was more than just our building.  We headed to the hotel bar to wait it out... they started out trying to gouge us with cash only crazy prices, but by the time a bunch of our colleagues made the trek downstairs and we were having an impromptu party, they were giving away ice cream and other goodies that were in danger of melting from the restaurant storage.

I had just gotten the keys to my new house and was in the process of doing some work there, but still living in my apartment that was off a long DARK hallway - getting into my building was super creepy that night.  I slept at least one night after that on the floor of my new house on an air mattress.

wow, that font change for my little footnote did NOT post like it previewed!

I'm still sitting on the same 1901 points total (i've grown a little attached to it, actually*)








*which probably means this post will flip me to 1902...

thank you! I thought I looked at the menus pretty thoroughly but definitely did not find that!

doh! I started this post sometime this morning, got interrupted by work (the nerve) and didn't realize it's been discussed recently & today before I finished my post.  so, from the redundant department of redundancy, I have made a stellar contribution which I cannot edit. :-\

I'm sorry if this is a repeat, I skimmed through the thread and didn't see it mentioned.


Is someone controlling which main-page articles become the little "feature article buttons/pictures" below the banner/main menu area?  because they have not changed for me in days and are currently, from left to right (not in any sort of date/time order): OFFAT for bball semi-final game (6/13, 6am); all-ancient team (6/12 noon); Spider Sims recruiting profile (6/12 4:54pm); HTTV kickstarter (which as I look closer may be a right hand menu item rather than a "feature" article - I'm not sure).

That's a shame.  Wishing MAAR a complete and speedy recovery!

Thanks for the heads' up.  I'll be making the trip as a first timer.  Anyone have thoughts on getting tix thru the university?  or to use a stubhub/reseller?

06/11/2018 - 6:30pm thanks

06/01/2018 - 4:21pm can we finish that last

can we finish that last sentence more specifically, please?


For everyone's sake, let's hope this moves quickly and results in Michigan firing the money cannon at our current coach & staff (not as part of a scramble for a new hire).

Fair enough, I will clarify.  I have been to barstool, though I no longer go there voluntarily (ie, unless I don't pay enough attention to a link I see on some other sports site that I do frequent) because I find it to be a rather unfriendly-to-female-sports-fans environment, in ways both overt and covert (and while you may want me to provide examples, I will concede here that I won't be going back over to find them; so it may have changed, and/or I may have a bias that's unfair, so be it). 

I still get plenty of sports without including barstool in my universe.  I don't mean to come across as having an axe to grind against them, of my free will I've decided I don't need what they offer.  Sports & my love thereof are a big part of my life, however, so in my world, barstool is not equal to sports.

05/23/2018 - 4:01pm ty

thanks for clarifying.

05/23/2018 - 3:07pm .

I'm not so up on "Joy of Cooking' so the analogy falls flat with me.  (Which perhaps crushes another stereotype?)


I love sports.  I don't visit barstool to read about them or otherwise experience them.  Because, woman.  And I don't need that shit in my life.  So, it may be pedantics to you.  It's not to me.

05/23/2018 - 2:29pm reading this now, I wonder if

reading this now, I wonder if it's meant to say, as I first took it: care more about sports than women [care about sports]...


or if it was intended as: care more about sports than [men care about] women... 



05/23/2018 - 2:24pm .

barstool does not equal "sports"

05/22/2018 - 9:39am doh!

OMG! How funny is that brain fart.  What do I know, I'm a female, I wear panties! LOL

Except, we're replacing 3 guys who played starter minutes.

04/04/2018 - 4:40pm enjoyable

I particularly enjoyed MAARch

04/04/2018 - 4:05pm love

I love this:

a defense-first, trash-talking bunch of bulldogs that knew, without a shred of a doubt, that they were one of the best teams in the country, and certainly the best in the Big Ten. Real tough laughs in the face of fake tough.

04/03/2018 - 11:27am .

I thought it sounded sorta like "didn't ... already ask that question"  or something along those lines, but I only listened once earlier today

04/02/2018 - 11:47am MAAR

probably MAAR (23)


ETA: doh! forgot about Robinson

04/02/2018 - 11:46am tonight

1.  Is Moe going to show up and dominate?

show up, yes; have a solid but not dominating game

2.  Are MAAR and Z going to rebound from Saturday's poor shooting?

yes, MAAR especially

3.  How many 3's will Nova attempt, and how many go in? 

they'll attempt about 22 and convert just under 30%

4.  Who wins, what score?

I'm too superstitious to let myself answer this question

03/29/2018 - 11:14am white hats?

what do the white hats say?

03/20/2018 - 10:30am scholarship count

We don't have a scholarship for someone.  I'd be surprised if it's Mo who'd be on the outside looking in, if he wants to continue here.

03/08/2018 - 12:28pm I love OFAAT

One of my favorite features that I've missed this basketball season during your reduced schedule Ace - thanks for devoting the time and energy to these this week. (Contunued good wishes for your full recovery & effective long-term health management, by the way.)


Now, sadly for me, I can't enjoy them until I get home, as work is now blocking all file sharing sites like gfycat & flicker... but the anticipation is sweet!

03/07/2018 - 4:03pm head to head

didn't DeJulius take Loyer to the woodshed in their head-to-head matchup?  If that means anything to Mr. B voters...?

03/06/2018 - 11:06pm absolutely

I live in NYC so I get there from time to time, and it really is quite a place.  I appreciated that you didn't try to capture any of the new buildings in the background. It's a very subtle, but powerful picture.

03/06/2018 - 9:55pm hello post

my favorite quote from that hello post: That last bit means MAAR is probably closer to his ceiling than your average incoming freshman, which can be a benefit in the short-term but does add some concern for how much he'll improve over the long haul.


as comments in this post articulate - we've seen MAAR's game grow significantly during his time as a Wolverine; he was far (faar) from his ceiling.

03/06/2018 - 9:40pm Simmons

I also love Simmons' face in that photo, like he's studying Coach B's technique so he can yell at a ref just like that someday.  Even Ibi's sleepy expression (almost as if he's so used to Beilein yelling, but glad it's not directed at him this time). 

I may be way too into the stories I'm creating around this picture.  It is one of my favorites of the whole non-action set though (I also love the one in rememberance).

03/06/2018 - 6:30pm Joe D

I like the comparison to Joe D from a composure & demeanor perspective, absolutely.
