I watched every game. This isn't mind blowing.

That's a fact. Hell if we beat ND I expect that we will jump to the top 4.
And today if a Big Ten team wins the conference with a record of 1 loss or less, they will make the playoff. And before everyone brings up Penn State in 2016, they had 2 losses.
|05/29/2018 - 12:23pm||Everyone says MSU||
Everyone says MSU overachieved last year, but who exactly did they beat that they weren't supposed to? Penn State and us? We were entirely average, and Penn State was good but they weren't exactly world beaters. Penn State only beat Iowa by 2 and Nebraska by 8. Sure they beat up on non-confernece and Big Ten bottom feeders, but two close games to bad teams and two losses. They were probably closer talent wise to MSU than OSU (and I think there obviously was a big talent gap between MSU and OSU).
I don't know if MSU is a top 10 team, but I don't quite understand everyone saying they overachieved.
|05/29/2018 - 12:11pm||Not at all. And I don't mind||
Not at all. And I don't mind people ranking Bill Russell in the top 3 of all time as he was as dominant in the 60s as say LeBron is today. My response was to the claim that Bill Russell would still be a great player today, playing against todays players, which is obviously a ridiculous claim. Marcia then moronicly responded, which led to my youtube video and our back and forth.
|05/28/2018 - 10:48am||https://www.youtube.com/watch||
You're right. Kevin Garnett/Shaq/Hakeem would have no shot if Bill Russell were guarding them. lol
|05/27/2018 - 11:57pm||Wait a second...
Wait a second...
WD, the biggest Michigan sports fan ever, asks which game result would we choose to switch if possible...and of all the games Michigan has ever lost...Rose Bowls...crushing defeats to OSU...the freak games against MSU...
he chooses as his second pick to turn a VICTORY!!! against OSU, into a LOSS???
Has hell frozen over? Are you that beaten down by watching just about your entire life OSU beating us? Say it aint so, WD?!
|05/27/2018 - 11:50pm||He has never not made the NBA||
He has never not made the NBA finals as a coach and he has won a title as coach. How can you reasonably say he "sucks?"
|05/27/2018 - 11:47pm||LOL Bill Russell today||
LOL Bill Russell today wouldn't even make the league. Transport ANY player from the NBA today to the 1960s and they would be considered the best player ever by a country mile.
|05/27/2018 - 1:12pm||Have you ever been on this||
Have you ever been on this site after a Michigan loss? The only reason we lose are due to officials.
|05/27/2018 - 1:10pm||Well, Jordan came back for||
Well, Jordan came back for the 94-95 season and they didn't win the title or even make the finals, so claiming Jordan would have won 8 straight isn't based in reality and is a pointless, subjective argument anyways.
And Kobe over the entirety of his career had consistently the one of the worst "clutch" shooting percentages in the league.
When Jordan left the Bulls after the 93 title, Pippen led the Bulls to a 55-27 record the following year, only two games worse than the previous year. When LeBron left the Cavs to go to Miami, the Cavs finished with a 19-63 record after going 61-21 the previous year.
Your arguments are based on feelings rather than statistics and facts.
LeBron is easily a top 5 player all time. I truly don't understand why people like you attempt to argue that "he's trash."
|05/27/2018 - 1:01pm||Unless Westbrook changes his||
Unless Westbrook changes his game he will never win a title and will continue to alienate talent. But hey, at least he can rack up meaningless faux rebounds and assist numbers.
|05/23/2018 - 12:11pm||"His (Lewerke's) only||
"His (Lewerke's) only impressive games are the ones where he threw the ball a ton."
I'm having trouble determining if you meant this as an insult or compliment. If it's the former, how is that a knock on him?

People get so upset over inconsequential, filler, opinionated sports takes.
However, if I were to make a top 5 I would have:

I'll give you Smith, but Harden, Durant, and Ron Dayne? Dayne rushed for 1,800 yards as a freshman and a senior. He never once averaged under 5 ypc. I don't think anyone considers him the best back in college football history, but he is certainly deserving of his legacy.

Disagree. 3,000+ hits, 400+ home runs, two time MVP, rookie of the year...the guy was a great player for a long time.

15?! Honestly, name 14 better players in the history of the game.

As we are well aware, the quarterback position is important. Connor Cook was the QB in 15, and he was pretty good. Some other guy was the QB in 16, and he was awful. Lewerke, in my opinion, looks pretty good. #5 seems high for them, but I wouldn't be surprised if they finished in the top 10.

One of these is not like the others as well. Can you guess who the coach is?
Kansas Jayhawks - Won national title

Detroit Pistons - Won NBA title
New York Knicks

I wouldn't necessarily doubt Pitino to UDM.

No, it really doesn't as we see time and time again.

Hiring a guy that had assistants hire paid sex workers isn't nearly as atrocious as what the Catholic church has covered up over the last 50 years.
|04/19/2018 - 1:05pm||I see your account has been||
I see your account has been set up since 2008, but let me help you out. If Michigan loses a game, it's almost exclusively the fault of the referees. The sooner you figure that out the better the board's kool-aid tastes.
|04/19/2018 - 12:48pm||What exactly is a silent||
What exactly is a silent commit? He commits, but he still pretends to be uncommitted and he continues to narrow down a list of schools and take recruiting trips in order to lead on other teams?
|04/19/2018 - 12:44pm||The postseason isn't||
The postseason isn't guaranteed by any school, nor the NCAA. Occassionally a school turns down a bowl game they are eligible for. Should those players be allowed to transfer and have immediate eligibility as well? And sometimes schools ban themselves, and the NCAA doesn't impose any sanctions on top of the self-imposed sanctions. Should those players have immediately eligibility?
It seems as if I'm fighting for Patterson not to play, and that's not my intent. I think players should be able to profit off their fame, and I agree that players in Patterson's situation should be allowed immediate eligibility. But basing it on the ability to play in a bowl game...I don't know if that's a great argument.
|04/19/2018 - 12:38pm||Just because someones parents||
Just because someones parents have money doesn't mean the child would turn down thousands of dollars to attend a school.
This isn't mean to be a comment on Patterson's situation. I just always find that comment funny. Someone has money, therefore they obviously won't take more.

I'm with you. $500 or whatever it was that his mom was given is nothing. The coaches/conferences/NCAA make a combined billions off the players and partnerships with TV and apparel companies. God forbid the damn players actually make some money off their own value like every other person involved with NCAA athletics.

Their mugging style of play is the reason they make such consistent deep tourney runs. Outside of Duke, is there a program with more final fours than MSU over Izzo's career? Their least bruising, most free flowing team ever got bounced against Middle Tennessee a couple years ago.

You are getting shredded for being level headed, as the majority of the board is made up of the fringe lunatic portion of our fanbase...as is the case for nearly any online forum whether it's sports, politics, twitter, etc.
I don't necessarily agee with your assention that MSU would have won the conference with our schedule, but they are a good team and when they are firing on all cylinders they may be the best team in the country. They can only play the schedule they are handed, and they did enough to win the conference outright. Can't do anything but tip your hat and smile that we beat them on their court. Hopefully we get another chance at them in the BIG tourney.

I would hang the Final Four and Big Ten Tourney banners, but I don't understand celebrating an NIT championship. Should we hang banners for in-conference tourney's like the Maui Invitational?
And of course we shouldn't hang a 2013 Title banner. Give me a break.

Unfortunately he's not exactly making it up.
"Hoeltzel first got into trouble in 2004 after exchanging flirtatious social media messages with an 11-year-old girl he'd examined at a U of M arthritis camp. The hospital sent Hoeltzel to what they called a "boundaries course" as a result."
Like most things, we have to wait for the full investigation before jumping to any conclusions.

And this might not even turn be a "down year."
I was surprisingly talking about recruiting with one of my Spartan friends, and he mentioned how State never has highly ranked recruiting classes but they get results on the field yada yada yada. Anyways, he mentioned MSUs 2010 class and how it was only a top 25ish class, but produced a ton of pros. I called him on it, fact checked it, and I'll be damned if he wasn't spot on. According to 247, MSUs class was ranked #22 in the country, but included currently active pros of:
William Gholston, Max Bullough, Keith Mumphery, Marcus Rush, Kurtus Drummund, Tony Lippett, Jeremy Langford, Darqueze Dennard, and Leveon Bell.
So while it appears disappointing that our class may only finish in the top 15, we won't know whether it was a great class, bust, or somewhere in the middle until the players step on the field.
