MSU is the Spartans because Ann Arbor was known as the Athens of the Midwest, and the Spartans and Athenians were enemies. Thus Spartan comes in response to Ann Arbor.

Denard just tweeted "@DenardX: No one cares more for his players than Coach Hoke. Anyone that says anything different doesn't know. Love that man #GoBlue #GoHoke"

09/29/2014 - 8:24am Insulting

I think at this point, it's just insulting to the general public, and especially to fans and alumni, to keep getting answers like this from Coach Hoke and clearly written by Brandon.  Whether he had a concussion or not, there was a VERY GOOD chance that he could have; concussion tests take more than a few minutes, and obviously weren't done.  That's on the head coach and athletic director for failing to have procedures in place that the team actually follows.

09/21/2014 - 12:07am Went back. Yelled at Brandon

Went back. Yelled at Brandon on the sidelines. He ran away, true story. Kind of cool scene to support the players when they can hear every word and cheer.

I'm confused. You mean Morgan is listed as 2nd/3rd string? Or is he starting without an "OR" listed?

09/08/2014 - 2:46pm Don't commend the Ravens

I understand the urge to say good job for doing the right thing. But don't commend them for doing what should have been done months ago. Absolutely ridiculous.

I'm sure a minority opinion on here, but I'll take a Wimbledon final like that over watching a World Cup match every single time. Truly gritty by both players.

That was one of the craziest endings to a game I've ever seen because so unexpected. At least in OT you are on the lookout for a crazy goal, but that!?

Odds of UK making that three <<<<<< Odds of UK making two free throws (except if you foul the 45% FT guy).

03/30/2014 - 8:15pm Highest Kenpom AdjO ever(!)

According to the website, from what I can see this year's team was the most efficient on offense ever in the history of Kenpom (since 2003), with 124.1 points/100 posessions.  I shudder in awe to think what we might be next year if everyone comes back, but know it is a longshot.

03/30/2014 - 8:12pm Kenpom Highest O ever(!)

Will put in snowflake thread as well, but, at least from what I can tell on the data on his site, Michigan's offense this year was the highest/most efficient in the history of Kenpom.

I had New Mexico over KU, so this actually helped me by virtue of no one will be getting points for the S16 or E8 in this part of the bracket.

Here's to a fast recovery for him.  If I'm him, though, may consider shutting it down given how much is on the line in the NBA draft.  He's got to think about the long game.  Bill Self will have this talk with him - he seems to know a bit about putting guys into the NBA.

03/09/2014 - 10:21pm It can always get better.

It can always get better.  And hopefully Coach B is telling the team that exact thing right now.  Win the next 9 games, and then they can all go the NBA (happily).

03/09/2014 - 3:34pm I still think we need Wisco

I still think we need Wisco to lose today, or to the finals in the BTT to Michigan, in order for us to pass them and get the #2 in the Midwest (Wichita State's region).

03/06/2014 - 7:02pm Interesting idea on the NBA

Interesting idea on the NBA draft.  I wonder, though, how would the NBA/NCAA handle kids that are drafted at 18, come back for a few years of college ball, and then "re-enter" the draft (as they are able to do in hockey)?  

03/05/2014 - 9:19pm I wouldn't even call this

I wouldn't even call this semi-OT. It's March!!!

Oddly, we may look back and think of Jordan Morgan, purely because of longevity.

C'mon now. He lets them play through it. And it has been working for quite a few years now. I'll defer to Coach B on this one.

How nice is it not to be on the bubble right now? I'm still getting used to the whole "Michigan is a lock" situation, but I really could get used to this.

Let's just hope that a late season loss at Penn State doesn't lead them to the same result to which it led us last year...I will enjoy it nonetheless tonight.

Was that the play call?  Does anybody know who was supposed to get the ball?

02/24/2014 - 1:53pm Toughest games left for other

Toughest games left for other 3 seeds:

Wisco at Nebraska (3/9)

MSU vs. Iowa (3/6) and at OSU (3/9)

Iowa St at KSU (3/1)

SDSU at UNLV (3/5) and vs. New Mexico (3/8)

 

Toughest games left for other 4 seeds:

Cincinatti at UConn (3/1) and vs. Memphis (3/6)

UVA vs. Syracuse (3/1)

Saint Louis at VCU (3/1) and at UMass (3/8)

 

Conclusion:  there are lots of chances that Michigan can have help either solidifying a 4 seed or moving up to a 3 seed, provided we win our next four games.  Every other 3 and 4 seed has at least one other "hard" game left (if you consider @Nebraska "hard" now), compared to our schedule.  This is not to say, of course, that we will win our 4 games easily, especially on the road.  But, it's favorable, nonetheless.
