What's going on with Rojo?

12/03/2018 - 1:36pm We have a tendency to get…

We have a tendency to get too up or down as a fanbase. Call it the September Heisman phenomenon. 

This team and program are elite caliber but we have a long way to go. Rather than debate whether they're elite we need to focus on filling Crisler and whatever tournament venues they play it. Queme los Barcos for the fanbase not just the team. 

Win all the banners, then do the same come next football season. No more half steppin. 

GO BLUE

07/10/2018 - 10:42pm I was about to say David…

I was about to say David Long..Borderline lockdown corner that is young and hardy ever gets any attention...

That being said you can't go wrong with Higdon, him and Shea in the Pistol could be devastating

By the way Dan Dakich is listed in the free agent pool as a "Booster"

05/14/2018 - 3:15pm Top 201 Fans?

When they say the top 201 fans of the winning team get a share of the prize money, what exactly do they mean by that? 

Is it based on points, or when you sign up?

Thanks for sharing this...Go Big X...I think Stu and Duncan will be lethal in a 3-on-3 format.

04/17/2018 - 12:16pm NBA Refs

I like the NBA a lot nowadays but they really need to get some refs in there with the cohones to call traveling consistently, especially when it's blatant. 

LeBron, DWade and the Crab Dribbling Circus are responsible for the nonsense that goes on nowadays...I routinely see 3,4,5 and even borderline 6 step travels!!!

Also the refs need to stand up to the guys who complain constantly and T them up when they start getting disrespectful or whiny. 

Clean the game up a little bit and we could have a new Golden Era. 

As for Major League Baseball, we need the players to show more emotion and have more fun out there again.

04/07/2018 - 1:01am Simpson face

I really think Simpson was doing his best Isaac Haas impression in that famous GIF...After what he did the first time they beat us at Crisler.

Anyway for me, Poole shot all day followed by the Mo ankle breaker on Ward

Honorable mention: CJ Baird-mania

04/03/2018 - 1:05pm Yes, Nova was Better

However that doesn't explain the wild variance from game-to-game in terms of our 3 point shooting...Our achilles heal throughout the tournament came back to bite us. 

The good news is we got so much better at defense and were torching teams inside the paint during the BTT. Much like in '13 and '14 when Morgan and co. were running pick and rolls and backdoor cuts to perfection.

If we take this and build on it, and everybody works and getting more consistency with their shot, we can take another leap forward next year at least in terms of performance overall. 

 

03/30/2018 - 11:32am Not all Change is good...

In response to the previous poster, not all change is good...We gave Lloyd so much flak and yet he won our only national title in many years with the two most-maligned longtime friends and coordinators this fanbase has ever seen...(DeBord and Hermann). 

It's about having a vision and working toward it...Adjusting on the fly as needed. Let's hope this was the adjustment we needed...

03/28/2018 - 1:17pm Refreshing

Reading a site without ads and pop ups everywhere with clear concise text and quality writing was so refreshing. 

I consider investing in projects like this an investment toward a better world. Thank you

02/12/2018 - 3:41pm Travel

Trae Young is a great player and the future archetype for a new type of long distance shooter who can shoot it from anywhere on the court with accuracy...That being said I didnt realize he turned it over so much. Maybe because ESPN is beating the Trae= Curry drum.

BTW, I slow mo video captured him on my phone in a 3 step travel in the game the other day...Blatant yet uncalled because it was on the fast break. I really wish refs would have the gumption to make the calls that need to be made even if it means disrupting the play or going against the home crowd. 

Because ever since the LeBron/DWade crab dribbling era of basketball began, the 5 step travel and other egregious ones like the one i saw have become commonplace. 

That's why I love Beilein teams so much. Fundamentals and respect for the game (cue Futurama WNBA meme/reference)

01/25/2018 - 1:09pm Why is everyone afraid

Why is everyone afraid of PURDUE

They are good but it's not like we're playing a vintage UNC or Duke team here. 

They have some pretty good athletes who will be lucky to make the G League. We have future pros on our roster, more than they do. 

I don't understand the lax attitude toward the success of our basketball team. It's like we just want them to be fairly good, beat our rivals and not be better than the football team.

To Hell with Purdue and average standards for the basketball team. This is Michigan fergodsakes and if anyone in this sport deserves a national title it's John Beilein. GO BLUE, Beat the Boilers!!!

01/11/2018 - 3:44pm Thank you

Thank you for assuaging my concerns. 

In my humble opinion I think we should not make any excuses, just play hard and try and win the game but hell what do I know about sports anyway. 

This is a rivalry game btw ahem

01/09/2018 - 4:31pm Wilson's not here

Wilson's not here man! Go Blue, Win the Game!!

01/02/2018 - 7:50pm Finish Them

JUST WIN THE GAME!!!

Send them back to the GMO corn silo! 

Go Maize!! 

01/02/2018 - 3:41pm Always struck me...

As an odd philosophical match between Drevno and Frey...

01/02/2018 - 10:31am 2019 and 2020

Next year looks like we could have a good team but we play other good teams on the schedule so we might only have a kinda good team. 

I just hope we beat Michigan State because I hate those guys. 

Or Ohio State because I hate those guys even more. 

Of course in 2019 if we load up on at least 6 additional four stars and one five star there's a solid chance that will be there we will be able to achieve most of our goals. 

The forecast for 2020 also looks good with partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid to upper-60s. 

THIS TYPE OF MENTALITY IS ANOTHER PART OF WHY WE CANNOT WIN BIG GAMES OR ANYTHING OF CONSEQUENCE!!!

Brian's "toxic-ass fanbase" quote rings incredibly true on a day like today. It's like we all have collective PTSD and don't believe we deserve nice things. And we only seem to want the nice things to shove it in the faces of other teams who have been able to partake in the enjoyment of nice things

05/15/2016 - 2:28pm Monster...

Remember Justin Ockerman? Former MSU center and Seattle Mariners farmhand? Imagine facing him in youth baseball when his lower body is bigger than your entire existence. He struck me out every single time I faced him and practically scared me out of youth baseball haha. But it was cool to follow his career

04/06/2016 - 1:00pm Dawkins

Good kid, great athlete, should do well at UCF...

Just not a good fit here anymore. He did not get his shots in the flow of the offense it was basically him launching from an odd angle and stopping our offensive flow/ball movement/people movement...

Beilein is making sure he puts together a team that takes care of the ball, passes, and runs the offense and that's why Doyle and Dawkins are gone (even though it may have been mutual).

 

Look at how far chemistry and smart decision making got Villanova ...

03/08/2016 - 2:57pm Funny how the Michigan BBall FB Page...

Is not even posting these uniforms like they did in previous years, because they know public sentiment will be 90% against them as they have been all year...

Just everything felt off this entire season and it's been hard to deal with because we all saw it unfolding like a slow motion train wreck and nobody else did. 

Coming off of such newfound success and pride for the program that is especially disappointing. It's been disappointing, Jim 

Not tremendous in any way 

03/07/2016 - 11:41am Michigan Eye Test

I think based on resume Michigan is fairly deserving compared most of the other bubble teams.

What hurts us is the eye test.

ie my eyes actually still hurt from watch that game the other day
