02/03/2012 - 1:15pm Where the hell have I been?!!

While utterly terrible, that still managed to be quite entertaining. Very sad to see it 7 years after the fact.

01/29/2012 - 1:05pm Let's Go

Good Guys!! I'm 100% positive Trey will have a monster, national coming out type of game against the hometown squad. More so than the Duke game Craft "ain't got shit" on Burke.
<br>Step the fuck up!!!

01/25/2012 - 10:53pm Penis mightier?...

For $500?!?

01/22/2012 - 5:05am I see

What you did there..

01/21/2012 - 1:18am Rubio

...for the tie!!!!

01/21/2012 - 1:11am Derrick Williams

Needs minutes. He's the #2 overall pick and has all the talent and athleticism in the world. And he's and inside/outside threat. Is it just a logjam of big guys in Minny or is he truly in Adelman's doghouse?

01/17/2012 - 9:32pm To quote a great man..

"Get the fuck off my court!"

01/11/2012 - 7:53pm Put that

On the season highlight reel for the end of the season banquet. I honestly wasn't sure Novak was even capable of throwing down like that. My favorite play since the Novak (on the ground) to Burke v. Wisconsin.

01/11/2012 - 7:49pm Zack

Freaking Novak!!!!!

01/04/2012 - 12:16am I just got a little emotional.

Actually I just got a LOT emotional. I don't know what broke me more...Hemi's speech or Hoke's smile after the Gatorade bath. Feels good to be a good guy!

12/13/2011 - 2:34pm Is the football banquet

the same deal as the basketball banquet? Open to public, autograph signings, an all that jazz? It seems like it would be nearly impossibly to pull off but figured it was worth asking.

11/26/2011 - 6:34am Past, Present, AND Future

Charles Woodson, Zack Novak, AND Mitch McGary.

11/22/2011 - 4:04pm I enjoyed the comparison

To Michigan/USC in football.

11/18/2011 - 9:13am Student Section

I would never, could never hate on the Maize Rage.
<br>I'm an admitted "normal" fan, having never attended Michigan. I was at the Towson game 5 rows behind the basket opposite the main tunnel and didn't perceive a 10' difference in where the Maize Rage is now in comparison to where it was pre-renovation. If that's actually the case, that's awful.
<br>Additionally, I did notice first hand that the "wings" of the Maize Rage consist of seats, while the middle portion sit (stand) on bleachers. This is also terrible for those on the wings. I imagine I'd feel disjoined from the heart of the Rage if I were to sit in those seats, but then again, I'm no student.
<br>I wish I could bring myself to sit in the student section for basketball games in particular. I have the energy and passion to stand, cheer, and yell all game. I feel like I'm going to piss people off when I jump up for an exciting dunk (Morgan) or a clutch rebound (Novak) or when I stand up in the closing moments of a tight game.

11/18/2011 - 6:29am Total sense
11/12/2011 - 5:11am Or it would cause

The little guy to scream what he had seen 100 times louder when his words fell on deaf ears the first go-around.

09/27/2011 - 5:00am Wishing Jordan the best of luck

In all future endeavors! #hail

09/21/2011 - 12:05am Thanks for the heads up..

Now to weasel my way out of work..

09/11/2011 - 7:48am I also

Had fun!
<br>Hail Hoke!

09/07/2011 - 6:57pm Can't

wait to see the schedule poster! Schedule looks good. Hopefully we do some damage in Maui but I have a feeling we will still be figuring things out rotation-wise which could make a run difficult considering the competition. My faith in Beilein allows me to believe that those kinks will be sorted out by the conference portion of the schedule relatively unscathed.

07/28/2011 - 7:48pm I also

saw Sam McGuffie at first glance. And I also saw that quote applying to more than just Michigan. It definitely applies to Duke and UNC very easily.
<br>But I do hope we land the kid! Michigan hoops is looking up and I love John Beilein! Way to turn the program around and get us in the discussion for 5 Stars again!

07/21/2011 - 1:19am No love for the

Maize n Blue Deli? I've never been but saw it on Man vs Food and it looked like it was worth a visit. Is it one of those spots that locals actually detest?

06/23/2011 - 10:46pm Ok here we go...

I'm looking at you Houston.

05/31/2011 - 6:40am Disappointments?

Being an adult, the Sopranos finale, 09-10 Michigan basketball... in reverse order.

05/17/2011 - 9:22pm I say reach

for the Pistons and take him in the lottery. We need an actual point guard. And Darius is huge, something all the one on one coaching in the world couldn't acquire. Help defense is good enough (on most teams) in the NBA that his lack of lateral quickness can be de-emphasized. Joe, please draft your son's college teammate. Then send the maintenance guy up into the rafters to get your #4 down and let DMo rock it.

05/10/2011 - 8:33am Burke won't be

AS important as everybody is making him out to be early on. I think JB is going to roll with Stu at the point in Maui and beyond until Burke starts to blossom. I expect lots of growing pains early wen Burke is running the offense. You've gotta be a cocoon before you can be a butterfly...
<br>Maui is going to be huge. We need to get a win or two and get some confidence going into season against some quality opponents (something we lacked last year). If we go 0-fer in Maui, we will be desperate for an answer at the point most likely moving forward, with nobody truly ready to fill the role (see 09-10). Unlike that year though, Stu has seen enough time on the ball that he is comfortable in that role when the situation calls for it.

05/07/2011 - 5:33am Everybody is saying

Darius needs to go to this team or that team and step in to distribute the ball to this star or that star. Get real. Darius is NOT going to average starter minutes in his rookie campaign. Darius will be better of going to a team who already has a starting point guard, but lacks a quality backup.
<br>I enjoyed hearing Darius projected to Washington to back up his offseason workout partner, Mr. Wall. He will have a chance to play, the pressure to won won't immediately be squarely on his shoulders, and he will have a chance to work on all those flaws everything loves to point out while at the same time wishing he stayed one more year.
<br>I also like the idea of Darius landing in SA. No chance in hell he won't end up the best basketball player he can be if he sticks there for the duration of his rookie contract and Pop doesn't retire.

05/07/2011 - 5:08am I hope

the Pistons manage to snag him at some point. No matter what happens, in a couple months, Darius will have realized his dream and we will have had the pleasure of seeing the spark that made that possible. I really, REALLY want him to go in the first round though for his sake, regardless of the team.

04/25/2011 - 5:26pm Straight

Cash, Homie!

04/24/2011 - 5:21am I'm sitting here

watching the Michigan/Tennessee game just because I can and the more I think about it, it seems to me Darius is gone. With much of the premium talent staying in school, a huge window is opening up for Darius that will likely be narowed, if not closed, next year (the same year a lot of people seem to think he would be "better off" waiting to leave), whether he goes in the first or second round.
<br>He led the B1G in assists. Where to go from there? Outside shooting and his left are his weaknesses and everybody wants him to develop those at Michigan. That's great for Michigan fans, but is that necessarily best for Darius? Every rookie has weaknesses. Check their scouting report. The main thing Darius possesses is size. That in itself makes him NBA ready. I think he could go to the league and work on his left and his shot a lot more intensively than he could at Michigan.
<br>Also, and this is just me, but Darius seems kind of resentful to me. Following him on twitter as I'm sure many of you do, he seems detached. Seeing him use the hashtag #leaguebound at one point was somewhat sad to see.
<br>The way I'm approaching the situation, he is gone. If he goes to the league, he will instantly be my favorite player. If he comes back, I'll jump up and down for joy and scream at the top of my lungs in elation. It just seems like, in situations like these, players tend to stay in the draft, not pull their names out. At least this time, Michigan will be ready with another PG ready to step up whenever Darius decides to leave.

04/14/2011 - 5:04pm Iverson

Is already gone.

03/21/2011 - 2:57am The refs DID ..

Call things somewhat one-sided. However, you need to be better than the officials. Beilein has preached this all year. Today was no different.

03/21/2011 - 2:44am DMo was the reason we are who we are

The reason we fell behind was bc he was sitting (thanks refs).
<br>The reason we came back was because he refused to let's the team go out without a serious fight.
<br>He can take any shot he wants. I'm not going to second guess him for a second. The only time he frustrated me was when he missed the front end of the 1-1 against Wisco leaving the door open for Gasser. But we moved on, healed, and grew from that so I can live with it.
<br>"Get the FUCK off my court!"

03/20/2011 - 4:36pm He hits em when they count tho
03/20/2011 - 4:34pm Goosebumps

Let's go Morgan. Talk some of that Fab Five trash talk in Kellys face.
<br>Here we go.

03/20/2011 - 4:31pm Back in this

God I love Zack Novak.

03/20/2011 - 4:16pm posted from iPhone

Best pass of the year by Morgan by the way. Thanks for the replay.
<br>Nolan is pretty fucking good by the way and I hate him terribly.

03/20/2011 - 4:02pm Let's Go Blue!!
03/20/2011 - 3:41pm OMG

With the fouls already... I don't mind the fouls on the bench guys as much as I mind the free points they're yielding.

03/20/2011 - 3:39pm I'm sensing another

Strong second half out of Timmy. Attaboy on D as well Vogrich. I'm liking him more and more with each passing game.

03/20/2011 - 3:37pm Hate this NAPA commercial

Ready to jump out of my window.

03/20/2011 - 3:34pm Another miss

And let's go Blake.

03/20/2011 - 3:34pm Singler missing FTs.

I'll take it. We need every point we can get.

03/20/2011 - 3:32pm Wow

That was one of the most amazing and surprising plays I've seen all year. That's the way to fill in Horford. And the FT.

03/20/2011 - 3:29pm Way to stop the bleeding Stu!
03/20/2011 - 3:23pm I'm going to lose my voice

Yelling at my tv before this game is over. Smotrycz is doing his best Pittsnogle impersonation and looking good.

03/20/2011 - 3:18pm YEAHHHHHHHH


03/20/2011 - 3:13pm If I learned one thing

From watching this team all season its that we are never out of a game as long as we are within 12-14.
<br>Another cheap foul on Morgan.
<br>We have a Timmy sighting.

03/20/2011 - 3:08pm Holy hand check

Darius keeps having to battle back against his defender every time bc dudes hands are all over him. No matter who's guarding him.

03/20/2011 - 3:06pm Attaboy Zack!!

And DMo is back.
