There are so many blind spots in this post and other similar posts.

Depth is an issue including and outside the 5 spot. That will get worked on the next month, but it's very much an issue.

Free throw shooting is an issue. That's going to bite us.

Some of the teams we played weren't as good as originally thought. Hello Villanova. Hello Providence. And we just had our hands full with NU and USC.

And while this team is really good right now (so maybe this point is moot), I hate the narrative that Michigan will always become super Michigan as the year wears on. Yeah, there is a track record of this, but it doesn't necessarily mean we are going to become unstoppable.

Not saying we aren't good. We clearly are very good. But this isn't a historical juggernaut that some are trying to make us out to be. At least not yet.

This comes close to eptomizing what drives me crazy about our fan base (myself include) and why we get such inflated expectations that get dashed time and again. We make so many excuses, make up fancy, conditional statistics, cherry pick stats, and ignore the actual eye test. You don't get to make up "what ifs" or "if we would have done that". There is no "well if we didn't turn the ball over..." or "if the refs would stop with their Michigan bias" or  "if that fluke, generational play wouldn't have happened". We are what we are.

Enjoy this team for what it is and stop trying to mold them into something else. Enjoy the evolution should that change.

Can you all stop ruining a perfectly thread by talking about our football team?

I'm happy many find joy in this, but for me, the end can't come soon enough. I can't quite figure out why, but I think it's because of the clutter it adds to the board.

I know, I know, "get off my grass kids!".

You don't have to look hard to see a lot of Kyrie's game. I'm the most excited about this recruit because I feel he is going to be truly special. Maybe our best PG in the Beilein era...

I'm so happy you still have him.

I did that, while making sure to switch back to rich text editor and things looked fine. I also previewed the post multiple times before posting and again, things looked ok. I read multiple posts about embedding, including trying to copy code from successful OP's videos from this year. Thank you for the tip either way though.

I guess I don't know how to embed afterall. Here's the link to the content. My apologies.

I haven't paid for cable in nearly 3 years and I don't miss a thing. Between free live feeds of news on YouTube, a NetFlix account, and all the free HD sports you could want on I am very satisfied. Give it a try, you can always opt back in if it's not enough.

"This was a glimpse into a pretty exciting future"

I'm sorry but there is no excitement for the future for this team. How can you honestly say you are fairly assessing this team? I'm getting really tired of reading hopeful, blatantly biased analyses of this team over the last few years. The narratives that get spun are becoming more and more far-fetched, and more of an insult to the faithful readers of this blog that expect critical analyses.This team is a smoldering dumpster fire. I say smoldering because an active dumpster fire is at least exciting.

Anyone know how to watch a replay on the internet?

I made a clone of Eddy Fitz that will be ready in a little under two weeks. I made it last year around this time and it turned out great! It sure would be nice to have the real thing though.

You might want to have your taste buds examined.

11/02/2016 - 3:04pm You're correct, you could,

You're correct, you could, which would make my original point rather moot. I should have clarified what I really meant, which is, the easy way to shut down naysayers who are intent on "proving you wrong" is to just walk away and let your team's results speak for themselves. It's like those crazy fundamentalists that like to travel from campus to campus, essentially spouting hate at people. The easiest way to shut them down is to just ignore them and walk away., i.e. remove their power. Conversely, engage and give them power. In other words, just walk away from Sparty/Golden Domer/Buckeye fan and let the team do the talking because no one is going to change anyone's mind.

While this is kind of informative, there sure is a whole lot of energy going into something that ultimately doesn't really matter.

Have you not been paying attention to how Harbaugh prepares?

The netting feel isn't that noticeable at all for me. I also wear mine while biking and playing basketball and I haven't had any chafing.

I should also add that I have Exofficio boxer briefs as well and they just don't compare. they ride up and are not as well made. I will say that I can wear both for multiple days without any odor. they both pass that test.

10/14/2016 - 6:41pm Get dem boxer briefs

I bought three pairs two weeks ago and they are fabulous! They never ride up and the long legs are indeed as long as advertised. When wearing them with basketball or running sorts, it honestly feels like you're wearing nothing. Money well spent if you ask me.

I live in Colorado and I'll speak to the weather. I miss Michigan weather...all of it.

I think the lady doth protest too much.

07/21/2016 - 2:54pm I agree from that viewpoint.

I agree from that viewpoint. However, Harbaugh has been hailed as the savior of the program, however, the gut reaction of many is that we won't be saved. Harbaugh is the real deal. No need to worry about that. We will win and it will be sweet again.

And this is the mindset that we are trying to reverse. Winners don't think like that. Winners want the bullseye and the challenge.

If we want to play that game, they could respond and point out goal line stances against Minnesota and Indiana as a counter to your argument. A win is a win.

To me, it's that swag that Woodson displays after that hit and really, throughout that game that is what will push the Harbaugh movement over the top. Winning begets that swag, but so does the mindset of the players and their coach. I can't wait to see some attitude on the field  this year!

07/19/2016 - 10:17am Rocky Mountain Workout

I've done close to 150 miles of alpine backpacking, along with basketball and weightlifting three days per week. I've always been thin, so packing on more muscle has been a priority this summer. Odd thing is, I've noticed a definite improvement, but I haven't gained any weight. Seems odd.

07/12/2016 - 8:39pm My 4 years in Kalamazoo were

My 4 years in Kalamazoo were pretty good. I was a bit surprised it wasn't in the top 25. If you are factoring in the craft beer scene, it's 1 and 2 with Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids.

07/12/2016 - 8:37pm Denver is not better than Ann

Denver is not better than Ann Arbor. I live in Fort Collins (used to live in Ann Arbor) and have spent some time in Denver and while Denver is kind of cool, it's no where near Ann Arbor. I kind of get tired of hearing people talk about how nice the weather is in Colorado because of the sun. It's flat out hot most of the time. "But it's a dry heat". Yeah and I don't like sticking my head in an oven.

Simply put, there's something special about Ann Arbor.

07/07/2016 - 6:45pm Win big and the big dominoes fall

It would appear that Michigan is gaining more and more legit attention from top tier recruits, with some vague and not so vague references from recruits stating that if Michigan starts winning big (i.e. Big Ten championship and playoffs), that these top tier recruits could really start falling into place. Kind of a "duh" thing to say, but basically the house is getting closer and closer to being rebuilt. It's a pretty exciting time to be a Michigan fan.

02/15/2016 - 11:36am Agreed

Let's stop spelling out the obvious. Subtle humor is best preserved as subtle.

12/08/2015 - 9:42pm This team is hard to watch

This team is hard to watch and has been hard to watch all year. No toughness inside, relies way too much on jump shots, and way too soft on defense. This team does not look good this year, especially if they aren't hitting from outside. Not sure what the expectation is at this point.
