It is just a defense mechanism against BPONE.

White Cloud of Positive Expectations (WCOPE).

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

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!

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.

03/25/2018 - 12:00am Never scared

Charles is definitely willing to mix it up down low and is never scurred (maybe on the line sometimes). Love his intensity all tourney. Thanks to him I am working like crazy to book a trip to San Antonio.

03/11/2018 - 10:04pm Jack Straw from Wichita cut

Jack Straw from Wichita cut his buddy down. Hoping for the same against Montana and then Houston or SD State.

Unlike Michigan State who take dumb shits in so many ways.

03/04/2018 - 9:57pm Can’t stop watching and my

Can’t stop watching and my kids are sick of me walking around like Zavier tonight.

03/04/2018 - 7:53pm Duncan

Look at Vincent Edwards’ stat line. Duncan basically shut him down.

03/04/2018 - 6:50pm Back to Back

First time since 2010 and 2011.

03/03/2018 - 7:21pm My wife said the same thing

My wife said the same thing today. Out of the blue she said, “I think Zavier is my favorite player.” I couldn’t argue with her for sure. A lot of good options. For me, they are all my favorite. I use that with the kids too.

03/03/2018 - 4:55pm Yep

Beilein took his time to get the right coaches. I think there was some concern about how long it took and whether he could find a suitable replacement for Donlan.

03/03/2018 - 4:50pm All Time

I love Bo, Hutch, Red, but Beilein is my favorite Michigan coach of all time.

03/03/2018 - 4:33pm Beautiful Muppets

Those are some beautiful muppets! Today was a good day!

02/24/2018 - 3:09pm My most despised program

It,s surprisingly not close for me. Penn State is my most despised program. Followed by Notre Dame, then Ohio State. Michigan State is making a run though!

02/08/2018 - 9:08pm This is exactly why I am

This is exactly why I am going into work. Quiet and the driveway will be clear when I arrive home.

This is the best thing I’ve read on the blog all day! Thanks for sharing. I appreciate your insight every year.

In today’s world people in power will do (almost) anything to stay in power. It’s disgusting.
