Founders Dirty Bastard Ale is underrated at T43rd, imh(umble)o


02/27/2018 - 6:02pm I still won't watch the NIT,

I still won't watch the NIT, but I like these rule changes. To me, the 3 point line should be moved back. Too easy of a shot for these guys as it is right now

01/23/2018 - 1:12pm In Fairness to Justice

I am almost postive that he said a source told him that Michigan was out for DPJ. It's a little bit different.

01/18/2018 - 4:55pm In regards to MSU being a 2

I think Lunardi tries to be somewhat predictive in this exercise. MSU's current resume certainly doesn't warrant a 2, so I assume he is anticipating MSU surging as the season goes along. 

I think I would prefer a bracketology that was based solely on current resume but whatever.

01/17/2018 - 6:33pm Some good points, except your

Some good points, except your characterization of the Purdue game is flat out wrong. Purdue shot lights out from 3 and objectively speaking, many of those shots were extremely difficult. I mean, give them credit and all, but no matter how good or bad their looks were, the fact that they shot over 50% from 3 means Michigan was pretty unfortunate in the game.

01/11/2018 - 2:40pm My List

1. Poole - Yes, he is ultra-talented but also just so dang fun to watch. More minutes for him, now, please!

2. Livers - This kid has it all. The man-to-man defense against Purdue the other night was high level. No way he stays off the floor as he progresses.

3. Iggy - The replacement for Matthews that fits Beilein's system a little more comfortably.

An exciting time for Michigan basketball! Now, if only football would catch up ;p

12/18/2017 - 1:34pm Stiff Arm at 1:42

I am pretty sure the recipient of that stiff arm at 1:42 of the video now owes Van Sumeren his 1st born son. My goodness.

12/06/2017 - 3:17pm Kind of Surprising About the Point Guard Rotation

For a coach who has a reputation for caring more about offense than defense, his decision to stick with Simpson, in particular during the disastorous OSU 2nd half, is a curious one. I am hopeful that we will see more of Brooks and Simmons moving forward. 

I would love to see a breakout from Poole or Livers, but I think the point guard play is probably going to limit this team to a bubble type outfit come March regardless of the freshmens' development.

He asked for "reasonable" expectations.

12/04/2017 - 1:28pm Point taken about a stripped

Point taken about a stripped down playbook, but given the protection issues and inexperience at WR, I think servicable for a redshirt freshman qb is about all you could ask for. Anything more, and we are talking about unequivocal star, and I don't think Patterson is that either.

12/04/2017 - 1:12pm Prediction

Crazy prediction with no stakes because no one will ever remember I made it, possibly not even me:

If Patterson indeed transfers, I think Peters beats out Patterson for the starting position next year.

Due to:

- More time in the system.

- Peters being a better fit for the system

- Reportedly, (When I say "reportedly" it means I heard this from a college football analyst but don't remember who said it) the Ole Miss offense was very simple. The learning curve for Patterson will be steep.

- Most of all, Peters was pretty dang good during the limited time we saw him.




11/29/2017 - 3:47pm The good news about a game

The good news about a game like this is that it is kind of like a free roll. A loss doesn't hurt the resume too bad, but a win would be a huge boost. 

All in all, would just like to continue seeing improvement in the ballclub, particularly at the pg position.

11/21/2017 - 5:58pm s/

Thanks goodness we had a few fans chime in their opinion about O'Korn's qb play on this thread. Totally the right time and place for it.


11/17/2017 - 2:30pm Great story! Makes me want to

Great story! Makes me want to root for these guys even more than I already do.

10/19/2017 - 2:41pm Lockdown Corners?

Pfft, no biggie. Our receivers can't get open against broken gate corners. Already got that strength neutralized.

10/10/2017 - 2:17pm We got a huge break when

We got a huge break when Michigan St. committed a holding penalty while running out the clock, thus giving us about :35 for one last drive. Then, McDoom dropped the pass, nullifying our lucky break, and that was pretty much that. I am not sure what my point is. 

10/05/2017 - 6:58pm This is a Letterman top 10

This is a Letterman top 10 list, yes?

10/03/2017 - 5:53pm More like a bad take.

More like a bad take.

09/21/2017 - 7:46pm Yes

It was the Mallet mode play

09/18/2017 - 5:42pm Kind of funny

I was thinking maybe Harbaugh was softening to the media a bit this off-season but as the season has started it has become clear that's a big fat no-go.

09/14/2017 - 2:20pm Seems like this type of

Seems like this type of defense would be a good one for the offense to face, given they see Don Brown's aggressive scheme every day in practice. Hopefully the passing game is clicking on Saturday.

08/25/2017 - 5:55pm And

I tend to agree that if the position group was really in dire straits, our secondary coach wouldn't be publicizing it in every interview.

08/25/2017 - 5:54pm That's settled

I choose to believe you because it's what I want to believe.

08/23/2017 - 6:56pm Thanks!


08/23/2017 - 4:16pm Question

What is the opening music on the podcast from? If I had to guess, I would say it's the intro music to college football coverage from the 70s or 80s. Anyone know?

08/11/2017 - 2:22pm Reminds me of Napolean

Going back a little while, but I feel like Napolean Kaufmann is also a good comparison. Guy was a terror for UW and had a similar build. Was also a pretty good pro.

08/09/2017 - 1:29pm Do they?

I am not sure that is true, though you may be right.

My impression is that the polls in the middle of the season are not predictive, so I am not sure why the preseason poll would be. I feel like most preseason poll analysis is based on returning starters, and where teams ended up last year (though potential is certainly a factor, too, ie. Texas being ranked).

Maybe I am just arguing a semantics issue anyway. 

08/09/2017 - 1:12pm You can be overrated

You are making an argument for being overrated based on your schedule, after the fact. Which I would agree with. I am making an argument that you can't be overrated/underrated in the preseason based on your schedule. A preseason poll is not meant to predict wins and losses.

Since no one seems to understand the argument, I will make this the last post about it. It's not a very important topic anyway. Oh well.

08/09/2017 - 12:06pm Yes

Um, yes? Why shouldn't they be?

You might think a team will rise or drop in the rankings based on their schedule but that doesn't mean they are overrated/underrated preseason. A preseason ranking (should be) a snapshot of where a team is now, not a prediction about where they will finish.

For example, if you think Alabama is the best team in the nation, AND you think they have the toughest schedule, would you rank them 4th based on the schedule? 

08/09/2017 - 11:24am Overrated/Underrated

Because I see this argument has been made in this thread a few times and elsewhere infinity times, a helpful tip:

You cannot be overrated/underrated because of the strength/weakness of your schedule.


04/27/2017 - 3:39pm My Eval of Ruiz:

Floor: Greatest center in the history of Michigan

Ceiling: Greatest football player in the history of the game.

04/17/2017 - 10:57am Rosen was not benched

Hate to 'well actually' anyone on a Monday morning, but Rosen was most definitely not benched at any point last year, unless getting knocked out by injury qualifies as being benched.


More subjectively, I would say that Rosen looked fine last year. His o-line was terrible.

04/06/2017 - 12:57pm The photo of the refs

In the photo with the refs from the 2009 game, their jerseys spell "BLURF". Sounds about right.

03/23/2017 - 3:20pm Michigan 90-84

Michigan 90-84

03/14/2017 - 3:57pm This was fun

Mine had Dayton over Virginia in the title game and Princeton in the Final Four. 

03/14/2017 - 3:53pm I love Raft

And I think Nantz is underrated. His call from the BTT title game when Michigan stole the ball late in the game that led to the Walton layup is really good. Also, Grant Hill is MUCH improved from where he was a couple of years ago. Glad to have this crew.

03/14/2017 - 3:45pm Nice work, Ace

This collection of gifs is truly a masterpiece. Some of your finest work-- and some of FWJ's finest work as well.

03/09/2017 - 3:44pm Just beat Purdue

I think it is definitely within reach. Honestly, the committee historically hasn't done a great job of seeding this tourney so it's possible they stick Michigan in the 7 slot even if we lose tomorrow. I would think a Purdue victory SHOULD put us on the 7 line, but again, the committee seems to get seeding wrong more often than their actual selections, imo.

03/09/2017 - 3:40pm I jumped up and down so much

I jumped up and down so much after Burke's 3 to tie it, that I dropped my keys down to the row in front of me. After the game, I had to sheepishly ask the gentleman in front of me to retrieve them.

I just remember walking to the bathroom after the game and all of the stunned Kansas fans walking around like they were zombies.

03/09/2017 - 2:37pm I was at that game!

Great memory. My celebration may have been more demonstrative than his. 

03/01/2017 - 4:40pm I posted this last week

but if Zak Irvin can just get going even a little bit, this team's offense would be absolutely humming. I also really like the change of pace X has shown off the bench in recent games.

It seems to me the main key for this team is keeping the bigs out of foul trouble. They can survive stretches without Wagner and Wilson, but they probably can't survive auto benches or even either of those two fouling out. Wagner, for the most part, did a nice job of not fouling Swanigan; maybe NCAA refs will like him better than Big Ten refs.

02/28/2017 - 5:53pm Also

Tim Miles' press conferences are usually pretty good for this as well. I am not sure he goes into the Xs and Os quite like Painter did here, but he's usually interesting.

02/24/2017 - 5:58pm If only

Imagine if Walton and Irvin could get it going at the same time.

02/07/2017 - 4:34pm No Apathy Here...

Hoping for a big win so we can solidify our NIT seeding. 

02/01/2017 - 5:01pm Question

Were any RBs killed or harmed during the making of this video? 

02/01/2017 - 4:54pm Aubrey's senior tape

That tape is really something. Each running back that tries to block him gets trucked. The centers that try to block him get trucked; the centers that try to cut him get leaped over; and when they double team him, he just sheds both dudes like they're toddlers. <cackling with glee>

01/30/2017 - 5:55pm Must mean...

Najee's coming!


01/26/2017 - 1:06pm Wait

What am I supposed to remember?

01/19/2017 - 1:26pm Don't forget

Deceptively fast
