thank you - this is a great breakdown that we don't see that often. I suppose it helps we are at the last game and now have the sample size!

01/16/2018 - 4:40pm I love the Beilein Era

What a time to be alive

I truly enjoy seeing how each year's team develops. It's the sign of a great coach that we have seen so many players improve so drastically in the midst of a season during Beilein's tenure. Should be a fun rest of the season this year.

There are some great points here. A lot of my dwindling in investment in my fandom of Michigan football has not been very conscious, but it's pronounced. I've absorbed all things Michigan Football since a young age, have alumni parents, and am an alumnus myself. 

I love Michigan football like a family friend, and it's a family in so many ways. That said, if one of my family was making poor choices and hurting oneself, and you truly believed they were on that path, I wouldn't reward their actions or god forbid, financially encourage it. I don't think the reactions recently have been abandonment, i.e. "I'm done with UM football." I think it's much more akin to worrying about the program's direction, and the well-meaning wish to adjust the course for better. Lack of comment or enthusiasm for recent events would be far more damning to the program's fortunes. Go Blue!

09/23/2014 - 8:57pm Transcript?

I didn't see a disclaimer anywhere, but a lot of times radio personalities will just have transcripts of what they say on air posted onto their sites. It comes off as very informal and poorly-written if you read it as a news article.

09/22/2014 - 8:39pm Let's be real...

Both tours of retirement have been out of the ordinary. Greg Maddux, Griffey, and even Cal Ripken (pretty comparable figure to Jeter) did not have the extended and elaborate goodbyes these guys had. I have a lot of respect for both players, but the last two seasons have been a bit much, especially if you try to watch a game in which the yankees participated. I think that's all he was trying to say. No need for name calling.

is the man. Long live the professor, and the gunners

He may be there giving one of his famed motivational speeches on how to overcome losing as a head coach.

04/25/2012 - 11:45am UnderArmour's inferior shoes

UnderArmour's inferior shoes alone should see us to victory over NU, players and performance notwithstanding.

04/25/2012 - 3:13am I was a big fan of Mick

I was a big fan of Mick McCarthy and was sad to see him go.

As an Arsenal fan, our plight is not as bad, but it is frustrating to see other teams leapfrog the gunners in terms of talent when Arsene and the board consistently post operating and transfer profits each year by developing young talent and producing quality sides.

04/25/2012 - 12:33am Tello

Tello rarely starts, and they don't need to replace him seeing as they have Villa coming back next year (leg is currently broken). They really missed his finishing today against Chelsea. He's their best finisher and one of the only true strikers on the team. He's usually deployed on the left side of their three man front where Tello was for the Real game (although he was more of a number 9 at valencia).

10/21/2011 - 4:11pm A remark

Tom Bombadil was not an ancient god of river peoples, although he was married to the daughter of the river. It's this kind of careless attention to details that leads Michigan to debacles like last Saturday.

02/06/2011 - 2:08am Regionals

Unfortunately, regionals don't have to be FAT timed, and those that do take a whopping .4 off their times all around for seeding purposes (it used to be .2XX but recently went up). This is so hand timed regionals don't get an advantage in seeding. This subtraction especially skews the sprints, where there generally isn't as high a hand timed delay effect.

Rawls ran an 11.39 in his prelim for the final. I think we can safely conclude that he'd be anywhere from 11 - 11.4 consistently. Not as quick as Ingram, but that kid had great sprint form. Haven't had a chance to see Rawls.

11/22/2009 - 10:44pm Devin's Arm

Gardner may have a more lively arm, but watch the highlight videos from the games he's played so far this year. I like the way he moves in the pocket, but if you compare his throws with video of tate in high school, it's highly apparent that Gardner lacks the accuracy that Tate has. Tate made several thread-the-needle passes saturday that I don't believe Gardner could make, even after a year working with coaches and reads. DG completes a good number of passes (but still well below Tate's 70%+ rate in HS), but often behind or above his receiver, which doesn't often lead to as many problems in high school.
