Reminds me of a very large Morrissey.

Panic on the streets of Ann Arbor.

“In the ulcerating silence, perspective comes the way it always does for its ransom.”

Gord Downie

That lyric makes me feel better today for some reason.  The song is Beautiful Thing by the Tragically Hip.  It made me feel better too.

11/24/2018 - 9:32pm A couple of observations. …

A couple of observations.  Probably not new but helps to get it out.

OSU did a nice job of very specific pass protect and extra help.  Dobbiins picked up Bush nicely a couple times early and they had TE help as well.

They had confidence they could exploit mismatches if they could get a second or two more and they did.

I was surprised at the big difference in energy levels and focus.  I really thought Michigan would bring more energy and focus.  We really rely on Chase to lead the energy and he looked to be hampered by his injury.

Michigan did try to exploit mismatches but the Gentry drops negated some of it.  

tl:dr OSU schemed and executed mismatches better,  OSU had much more energy and focus which is really disappointing out of this group of coaches and players.

Good night.  I will be back pulling for the team next year.

I feel like Raj shit himself on purpose just for this moment and it paid off perfectly.  

Go Blue.

I will now commence with a 25 hour binge of hype music and stimulants to be ready!  Open to suggestions on both!

In honor of Thanksgiving, I educated my 10 year old daughter about jive turkeys on the recruiting trail.  She didn’t get it.

Since Brian’s BPONE post after ND, I have used WCOPE together me through the year.  

White Cloud of Positive Expectations.  It helped yesterday and it has me expecting a win on Saturday!

Once was enough for that shit hole and toxic people.  Never again.  Worst game and post-game experience of my life and I’ve been to a bunch of places.  They won and were still angry asshats.

Proud of those willing to do it.  Thoughts and prayers.

i will say the pre-game party was a good time,

Right after the ND game, someone told me they wanted what I was smoking when I said Michigan v. Notre Dame rematch in the CFP.  I believed it then and I think it could still happen.

i actually think we match up better with Book than Wimbush.  Their lines were incredible at the time.  Still very good but the Bars injury hurts them.  They certainly could lose before the CFP.

i believed in the Michigan D even with that bad start.  I probably thought too highly of the Michigan offense at that time but the improvement has been significant.

Agree.  Remember Rashan in the locker room after losing last year.  Michigan will be ready.

My biggest concern is Lewerke running.

I still have WCOPE.  The white cloud of positive expectations.  Opposite of Brian’s BPONE.  It’s fun while it lasts!

It is just a defense mechanism against BPONE.

Rematch in the CFP.

How did Moody perform?

08/22/2018 - 10:18pm His micromessages were clear…

His micromessages were clear that he thinks having to apologize is bullshit.  Just reading what someone wrote for him and trying to get through it as fast as possible.  No indication of real remorse or regret for his actions.

08/22/2018 - 10:07pm Yep.  They were working…

Yep.  They were working really hard to become a respected academic institution.  That is gone. 

It is possible to argue around the edges and rationalize Meyer’s actions if someone wants to but a top notch institution fires Meyer and Smith and makes it extremely clear that any actions inconsistent with being a great institution will not be tolerated.  

The Board of Trustees made their long term choice which is their prerogative.  No amount of money will change what their actions demonstrate they stand for.  They suck as an institution without a doubt.  They can take some solace that they are not alone.

08/19/2018 - 4:06pm “Anything happens to a kid”…

“Anything happens to a kid” or do you mean a kid dies because your staff is negligent and you treat the kids as tools for your own greed?  I don’t know of a situation where a coach needs a lawyer because a kid gets injured through the normal course of football.  In the case of negligence, yes go get a lawyer.

08/06/2018 - 8:36pm You do great work.  Thank…

You do great work.  Thank you for sharing.

08/04/2018 - 8:42pm Terminate.  The institution…

Terminate.  The institution has to be bigger than the coach.  They will still have a winnng football program.  They want their institution to be considered one of the best.  They won’t be if they keep Meyer.

06/01/2018 - 10:43pm Great selections throughout

Great selections throughout the thread.

My 3 today which changes depending on the day.

1. Prince - love his versatility
2. Gord Downie - passion every single time

RIP to all 3

05/20/2018 - 9:03pm Great Topic

So many great movies listed. The 3 I’ve watched the most in my life.

1.Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

2. Eternal Sunshine

3. Adaptation

04/27/2018 - 4:56pm Great recommendations! Fog

Great recommendations! Fog of War, Icarus, Amy were all fantastic.

One I haven’t seen mentioned that we really enjoyed is Dealt.

04/18/2018 - 8:45pm When I lived in West Quad,

When I lived in West Quad, Dooley’s sold pizza out of the back under some name I forgot (maybe Express). You could order double crust as a topping so 2 slices would fill me up for the day. A large lasted 3 or 4 days. It was crap but something like $5.

There was also Snappy’s Tomato Pizza which was the first time I remember a restaurant in a gas station.

04/17/2018 - 8:43pm I was fortunate to attend.

I was fortunate to attend. Right behind the Clemson bench next to the bright yellow shirt guy. Good times. Got a photo with Coach after the game.

Not as many fans as MSG or in LA this year though.

Dui, yes

04/14/2018 - 12:38pm Happy for Moe to be one step

Happy for Moe to be one step closer to his dream! Great messages for kids of all ages in his article.

I am old and have watched a lot of Michigan basketball but Moe is top 3 favorite of all time! I wish everybody could go about their lives with the passion and intensity he brings.

We did 14 days around the South Island. I loved every city we visited but I would put Queenstown or Nelson at the top.

04/03/2018 - 12:05am Special thank you to

Special thank you to Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman!

I feel like I owe it to him to spell his full name out.

He is an inspiration of not letting others decide who you are going to be and how good you are. He always demonstrated incredible calm and effort. Tonight he played hard the entire game.

He is someone I will tell my son to learn from. Thank you Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman!

Beat they ass to n 3!

I rarely complain about the refs but this is sickening. No goaltending call and no one addresses it. Just say great play.

The calls on Duncan were bullshit.

I won’t give up though.

04/02/2018 - 1:42pm No work today! I read half a

No work today! I read half a book, listened to a couple of podcasts, exercised, and meditated.

Going to watch Black Panther in 30 minutes with 4/5 of the fam.

Then prep a little bit for work tomorrow, eat dinner, drink bourbon and celebrate an amazing Michigan basketball season.

I ain’t scurred!

1. Play our transition and 3 point D.

2, Get some of our own transition points.

3. Drive to the basket. They will block some shots. Keep driving and kick as needed.

4. Win the game!

04/02/2018 - 10:55am I made the mistake of telling

I made the mistake of telling one of the people I was partying with in Ann Arbor (my junior year) that Rumeal “is not a good free throw shooter”. He proceeded to hang me out the 3rd floor window upside down and said something like “ you better hope he makes these or I’m dropping you”.

I don’t think he really would have done it but I am thankful for many reasons that Rumeal made the shots. I then proceeded to South U and ended up with a souvenir piece of the stoplight that was torn down.

A great night. I will be watching tonight from the comfort of my couch.

04/01/2018 - 9:47am Yes

It will be. Their center wants to shoot 3’s also. Play great 3 point D and transition D. Frustrate them. Then we have a chance.

Michigan D #3
Kansas D #47
Texas Tech D #4
West Virginia D #41
Alabama D #20

Villanova #14 D

Won’t be easy but we absolutely can win this game.

04/01/2018 - 9:36am Matt D

Matt D nailed his analysis of Poole coming out of high school!

03/31/2018 - 10:40pm How many times sine Zavier

How many times since Zavier became the starter again has Beilein had both Z and Rahk on the bench?

That was a huge tactical move when they were both struggling and Coach put Charles and Poole on the floor at the same time for a few minutes before the under 4 timeout.

Charles and Poole were aggressive while Z and Rahk regrouped. Awesome coaching!

03/31/2018 - 10:31pm I know I am probably crazy

I know I am probably crazy but we do best on D what it takes to beat Villanova. Great transition D and great 3 point D. I am probably not as worried as I should be.

How do we score? I think drive and kick and pick and roll can work.

03/31/2018 - 9:04pm I don’t think it is ever an

I don’t think it is ever an appropriate take to say leave a player behind. These guys bust their ass. You can say they are having a bad game but that was a bull shit take.

03/31/2018 - 8:53pm Great move to play Charles

Great move to play Charles and Poole while sitting Rahk and Z for a few minutes before the 4:00 mark.

03/31/2018 - 8:50pm Great team win with

Great team win with contributions from many. Charles is a freaking warrior!

Glad the team shut up the whiny fans saying we the season was over. It really is over one way or the other on Monday so we hopefully won’t have to listen to that whining!

Go Blue!

03/31/2018 - 7:13pm Already done.

Already done.

Maybe they will try to keep us in it in the second half.

Need Duncan to 6 points

03/30/2018 - 7:50am Chase

I am thankful for Chase Winovich speaking up. Great feedback and it is cool that Coach is openly asking for and accepting player input.

I’m not advocating to do everything the players want but incorporating some of their input will make the team better.

03/25/2018 - 2:52pm I’m so rope, they call me Mr.

I’m so rope, they call me Mr. Roper.

When the troubles arise, you know I’m the cool coper.

03/25/2018 - 8:05am Perfect summary

Exactly right! It seems so long ago and like a different team.

As I have said a few times here, Coach Beilein is my favorite Michigan coach of all time win or lose.

Remember when there was concern about how long it took for him to fill the open assistant coach positions? Great selections!

Love this coaching staff and team. I am enjoying this run almost as much as 1989 when I was a student.
