07/21/2016 - 6:29pm This! If the nba wants to

This! If the nba wants to jump into the political arena, then make a clear statement of your position and stick to it across the board. This is all about the appearance of having a principal, for the purpose of free publicity, rather than having actual principals, and foregoing the money to be made in China. The laws and actions of the Chinese government are exponentially more harmful to humans than the North Carolina law, but the nba doesn't really care.

04/07/2016 - 6:05pm Lesson I see from the data

Data:  the top 9 recruiting schools notched 11 national championships within the time frame, while the rest of the field notched 2

Lesson: having a great coach with the best talent wins you the tournament. 



03/11/2016 - 1:52pm 10 seconds to walk down the floor???


10 second before the first pass is made to initiate the offense.  We are down to 20 seconds before the first pass is made, we rush, and bad shot after bad shot.  Get down the damn court!!!

09/19/2015 - 12:00pm and this…


09/19/2015 - 11:57am found this

hope it works

09/19/2015 - 11:53am jrblue

any links?

Stuck in Arizona with no big ten network.

09/19/2015 - 11:45am stream for unlv?

i cannot find it even offered on some of the streaming sites i used last year.  any links out there someone could share?

07/30/2015 - 12:25pm work vs leisure

It has been a bit clunky for my work related use with outlook, exchange, and onedrive. Hangs a bit compared to 8.1. some problems are so new there are no fixes online yet, so you just have to work around it the best you can until they fine tune the bugs.

As far as leisure, it feels smoother and quicker. Still figuring out the logistical changes, but I like it so far.

11/04/2014 - 11:16am The Big Ten

With all that money, goes cheap on coaches.  What the hell is wrong with this conference?  Because the universities are so strong academically do they feel embarrased to spend too much on good coaches?  if you look at the basketball programs you have to say no, right?  The Big Ten has great basketball coaches.  What the hell is with the big ten and their short-sightedness when it comes to football coaches but not basketball?  I just don't get it.


11/03/2014 - 12:39pm Spot F'ing On Brian

"It's time to stop interpreting "The Team The Team The Team" as a moat between 115 players and113,000 fans."

I didn't realize how far Brandon's disease had infected the athletes and coaches until these "muggle" comments started coming out.  I thought they were all just grinning and bearing it, like we were, rather than nodding in affirmation.  What a complete and total disaster to the culture Brandon has been. 

08/04/2014 - 4:39pm This

10,000 times. 

05/14/2014 - 10:26am I am still amazed he plays for the Tigers

With their stellar pitching staff, it feels like what could have been if the Lions would have had a Defense back when they had Barry Sanders.  It just seems unfair.

11/12/2013 - 6:18pm rim rattling 5

for all the talk of Beilein and the "stretch four" i cannot imagine how great his teams could be if he had a rim rattling center.  Actually, i can imagine that....everytime Horford and Morgan miss bunny after bunny.  I don't care if our center cannot shoot outside of 5 feet from the basket, as long as he can play defense, shoot foul shots, and dunks every put back opportunity he gets or forces a foul. 

10/19/2013 - 7:53pm missed the game

would love for someone to throw up a link to anywhere i can watch it after the fact

10/12/2013 - 10:03pm Funchess

dropped two touchdowns.  that didn't help the offensive totals.

when it became apparent we couldn't run, which was very early, why we didn't go to a shotgun 4 receiver set i don't know.  we played into penn state's hands the majority of the game.  i felt like we were playing against alabama and shaun alexander back in the day but instead of making the adjustment and letting tom brady go all pass all the time we just kept wasting downs with useless run after useless run. 

10/12/2013 - 9:50pm No one expects the Inquisition

I certainly did not expect gibbons to miss a hat trick of field goals.

They played to their kicker who made his last 16 in a row before today. 


09/06/2013 - 9:02pm PURELY EPIC

Moeller's admiration of Desmond's stardom is fantastic. 

08/22/2013 - 7:37pm +1

For using "his sub 6.0 speed" in a sentence.  I am glad no family members were around to hear my burst of chortling. 

08/22/2013 - 2:48pm OP = Jonathan Swift

Not seeing it.

08/22/2013 - 2:45pm Trollers gonna Troll

i would not object to the banhammer

07/12/2013 - 6:48pm You can see the horn...

Just about to break through the skin.

05/03/2013 - 4:45pm yes yes yes

perfect answer.  all i can do is applaud.  This sums up exactly how i feel about barry and how i feel about having a leroy hoard/anthony thomas vs. norfleet.

05/02/2013 - 5:58pm 1000 points to you

so many great quotes from that movie

04/25/2013 - 1:29am I can easily say this:

Cupboard at Stanford when he took the job: full

Cupboard when Hoke took the job: Essentially empty

04/10/2013 - 1:21pm 5' 10 White Point Guard

with ridiculous handle, could shoot, tough as nails, nuts hung to the floor, had great college career, solid nba career and a pretty good nba coach - Scott Skiles.    I have a feeling spike is not going to lay down and hand over the PG spot to anyone. 

04/10/2013 - 12:42pm "its one of the great blocks....

...not just a block."  Amen, brother.  Amen

03/27/2013 - 2:45pm running backs

"They’re all about playing the same."  Awesome.  Just what I wanted to hear.  Add that to "JMFR just tore his knee to shreds" as the top two offseason statements I was so looking forward to hearing. 

03/20/2013 - 12:58pm FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU


what the hell....countess last year, now ryan.  we aren't allowed to field our best defenders in the same season??????

03/15/2013 - 4:33pm disgraceful

should have been up 20 in the first half if they just hit their open looks.

this team will be bounced in the second round, just like last year.  that game was vomit to watch.

i hate you bo ryan, and all you stand for.  quit basketball and go run a communist country and do all basketball fans a favor.

bo ryan is the void.

03/05/2013 - 12:47pm Offense and Defense


1. a second and third receiver need to emerge behind Gallon.  This could be a tight end, but the offense would really need to feature that tight end.

2. a consistent running game that gets us in great 2nd down situations and can convert short yardage 3rd downs consistently.



1.  Pressure on the QB.  QB's facing UM should know they have very little time to make a decision.  I would like to see the pass rush become much more effective.

2. Coverage sacks.  When the pass rush breaks down, it would be nice if that didn't matter because everyone was blanketed, thanks.



03/01/2013 - 10:48am Thank you for posting these videos

I love finding a band I haven't heard before that has a whole catelog of music I can dive into.

I found the Smiths late in life and it was like Christmas, just soaking in album after album. Nothing like binging on old, great music that you have just discovered for yourself.

02/13/2013 - 1:01pm To prove your Second Point:

6 assists last night.  Burke is averaging over 7 a game (but it may dip below seven if things keep trending downward) but we get 6 as a TEAM.

The ball has stopped moving in the same way?  Absolutely. 

Oh, and no one other than burke or hardaway can beat their man.  and when they do, there are plenty of bigs waiting for them at the rim, because they don't have to guard GRIII.

02/13/2013 - 12:50pm Thank you Brian

I wait all night and into the day to read what I WANTED TO SHOUT AT MY CHILDREN AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS!!!

But I don't have to shout at my children (they thank you as well, our would if they understood anything about this irrational passion for UM that i hold so dear) because I know catharsis will come with a new day and Brian successfully encapsulating in prose the crushing of my soul as BRAH ran roughshod over my dreams and my team.

02/13/2013 - 11:33am we cannot beat anyone on the road who plays defense....

...and has an offense.

In the Big Ten, that means Indiana and Mich. State.

I am not convinced, with the disappearance of GRIII and the lack of creativity (assists) of late, that we can win against either of those teams on a neutral court.


02/11/2013 - 1:33pm i have so much impotent rage for wisconsin

i knew what was going to happen.  I still watched every minute of the wisconsin python slowly constrict the soul from our basketball team and from life itself .  I knew it would ruin my day, which it did, but i watched anyway.  the only comfort i have is that they apply their formula of soul ripping basketball to others in the big ten.

Who is going to stop this disease?  no one, because no one can.  the light is just swallowed by the void, and there is no hope for life where Bo Ryan is concerned.

02/02/2013 - 1:01pm loved it

knowing how likely it is we are losing key cogs to the bball team next year, i am savoring every moment of this basketball team.  such a special collection of players, orchestrated by a fantastic coach and a gifted point guard.  such a joy to watch.

01/30/2013 - 6:37pm i second this motion

no BTN in AZ

01/27/2013 - 7:44pm we haz bigz?


01/18/2013 - 10:48am Chuck Daly....

...Coach B is not.  And thank the Lord.  He needs to leave here to go one place only: retirement.

01/17/2013 - 11:06am This is Gold Jerry


01/16/2013 - 7:32pm thank you

I laughed out loud at this one

12/04/2012 - 3:41pm Basketball coaches in the Big Ten, 11, 12....err....14

They are top notch.  They are paid accordingly.  The Big Ten is a top notch basketball conference.  I am sensing a correlation between good coaches, high pay, and quality programs. 

Football Coaches in the Big Ten.  They are not top notch.  They are not paid like top notch coaches.  We are not a top notch football conference.  (see SEC for a conference that will pay out the nose for coaches, e.g., Saban, Miles, etc.)

If the Big Ten paid more for high quality football coaches I have this crazy, out of left field,  totally insane notion that the conference may start getting a reputation as a top foot ball conference.  You know football right? Its that sport that allows the Big Ten to give competitive salaries to their BASKETBALL coaches. 

11/24/2012 - 5:26pm What happened today was the epitome of Ohio State

Ignore any wrong doing that may have occured and act like nothing matters but the result.

While Michigan, on the other hand, takes down banners, and basically refuses to acknowledge the Fab Five until penance has been completed.  Which, until Webber admits any culpability, will never happen.  A stark difference.

10/20/2012 - 6:51pm right there with you

i swear more during michigan games than any other time of the year

07/28/2012 - 4:24pm Game of Thrones Series - George R. R. Martin

I guess you get a nerd hall pass for not having been on top of this already since your excuse is that you were studying other books.  Read the books, then watch the series on HBO.  It doesn't get much better right now in fantasy/dragons/sex/magic/blood/guts/intrigue/power politics.

07/27/2012 - 3:52pm that brought tears to my eyes....

....about his promise to his brother, who passed away.


We won't be seeing another student/athlete like this young man for generations.


07/23/2012 - 5:13pm Heinekens are all i have on hand....

....luckily there are 12 of them.

I am just waiting for "Denard jumps on car hood during a police chase after breaking into a dorm room to steal a laptop while high on cocaine."

07/21/2012 - 3:34pm I too ran out of patience

I had to email Brian to see if he knew anything to help me sit tight.  I am in AZ, so I figured maybe they were going out in waves or something. 


06/08/2012 - 2:30pm if sparty's luck runs out....

...they start the season 2-3 and end it with 5 wins.  A stout defense can cover a multitude of offensive sins, which should get them to 7 or 8 wins.  I will be holding a hope deep in my heart that the sparty golden age comes to an end this year and we will dine on their sweet, delicious tears.  I would prefer to start the feast with Boise State coming to spartyland and dropping 4 or 5 trick plays for touchdowns on their way to a complete behind the woodshed thrashing. 

06/29/2011 - 7:41pm I love blues

So I put Johnny Cash into the Folk/Blues genre since I can then still justify my hatred of the complete country genre. 

I love the smell of rationalization in the know...that making shit up as you go smell....smells like victory.
