For a 〽️ichigan victory.

04/02/2018 - 8:17pm Maybe. Just maybe.

〽️ may not be good enough to win tonight. Maybe not enough talent. BUT this chameleon-like team has beat so many teams this year playing the other team's game, who knows.

But we get to watch 〽️ichigan play tonight. Everyone else can watch.

And stfu.

Game on.

Go Blue!!

03/23/2018 - 12:31am Cheers for the good guy.

Here is to good things happening to good people. Thanks Coach B. Sub sandwiches and chicken wing sfor all. It’s crazy!

03/18/2018 - 10:33am Over/Under

I'll take the over. :)

03/12/2018 - 10:33pm If I were King

TV Teddy Valentine wouldn’t be allowed to ref pick up games at the IM building. Even bad officials watch him and say, “That guy is awful.”

03/12/2018 - 10:11am 1991. Speaker was President Bush

I had a T-shirt that read “We Got Bush at Graduation”. No reason Michigan can’t get a high profile speaker. Good grief, just start with the notable alumni list.

It isn't always about number of stars and what someone has done. It is about getting the most from your people. That starts with recruiting good people and teaching. It's also about hiring smart people who can teach. Every great leader surrounds themselves with staff who support what they may not do as well. Michigan hired defensive specialist Luke Yaklich away from Illinois State this past offseason. This may be the most significant difference. Smart. Team players. Fit a slot in a program. Execution. Teaching. Repetition. Maybe Coach Beilein will start wearing old cut up hoodies on the sideline.

03/08/2018 - 8:27am CSU Colorado State AD Joe Parker

Was a swimmer at Michigan. I hope he hires the best coach for his program. Nothing else should matter.

02/18/2018 - 9:04am M shaped Pretzel

If you’re going to Crisler today, search out a concession stand selling the giant M shaped pretzels NOT the regular pretzels. Only certain spots sell them. They are amazingly good. I couldn’t care less that they cost $10. My daughter, a freshman at Michigan, is going to them game today. She sent me a text this morning asking which concession stand sells them. I wonder if that pretzel is her #1 reason for going to the game. lol

02/06/2018 - 8:53pm Colin Cowherd

According to USA Today, he was Colin Cowherd’s college roommate at Eastern Washington. If nothing else, maybe this hire will shut CC the f up.

02/04/2018 - 10:12am Status quo

Would somebody please tell Mr Izzo that,

1. "I have an understanding of what’s going on the best I can,

2. and I’m just gonna handle it by working, keeping my mouth shut and doing my job.

3. And when the time comes, I’ll address the things that I need to address.”


WTF. Have you no morality? Are you truly this obtuse?

01/24/2018 - 11:14pm How they voted.

How on Earth can anyone with a conscience believe this woman should lead anything? I hope all 11 have to answer to their constituents. Good luck fundraising

01/20/2018 - 6:17am Censorship

Fantastic. Just what an institution of higher learning is supposed to do. This is going to backfire in ways they can’t conceive.

01/20/2018 - 6:16am White board

Just use a white board like the Michigan Student in the Maize Rage Section. The stuff that kid writes is great.

01/18/2018 - 4:29pm Accountability

Accountability is a function so lost in our society.  I watched video of a few of these victimized women addressing this scumbag and found myself wishing they were allowed to truly punish him.  I hope there are some guards in the other Big House that turn their backs. 

As for the line of individuals who were in positions of authority that could have taken action, shame, shame, shame on them all.  They too are criminals for robbing these women of so much, none of which can be replaced.  If the penal system can't address MSU's staff for their complete lack of respect for another human, I hope these women take civil action against Michigan State and each person individually.  Protecting a serial rapist is beyond comprehension. Those who participated in the cover-up must be held accountable for not protecting those they were responsible for. Prayers to each of these victims and their families. 

01/18/2018 - 8:28am NCAA absurdity

The path most travelled.

01/16/2018 - 10:07pm Sonos

Sound bar and 3 Play One speakers.

Love them.

01/10/2018 - 1:38pm Robinson

He keeps disappearing while on the court.  Can't happen.  Livers has earned every moment he plays.  Wait...I'm with Brian.  NBA - He sucks. Needs to stay at Michigan 5-6 years.   lol

01/10/2018 - 1:35pm Brian's Writing and Michigan Basketball

If only Michigan Football would play at a level to allow us to enjoy this caliber of writing from Brian.  I LOVE this site when Brian is this on.  I'm glad football is over and he doesn't have to muddle through articles about an underachieving team, all the while trying to find a positive in the chaos. This basketball team may drive you crazy with their on court mental indifference twice per game but, at times, they are incredibly fun to watch. If Coach B can get even 39:04 out of them per game, I wouldn't want to play them. 

01/07/2018 - 6:08pm Which one?

Saddam Hussein vs Osama bin Laden?

Lethal injection or firing squad?

Okra or Lima beans?

Sometimes the option just isn’t a good one.

01/04/2018 - 12:48pm Hush you!

Hightower is the only ref more in love with himself than Valentine. They are both awful.

01/03/2018 - 4:07pm Spell Check

ain't proofreading.  We do not live in the Untied States.

12/25/2017 - 11:12am Tom Brady Michigan Jersey

My college-age sons bought me a Tom Brady Michigan Jersey. I now know they were raised properly.

12/15/2017 - 8:18pm Admit decision

My daughter received her acceptance email last year on December 21.

11/19/2017 - 11:06am Word

What he said.

11/18/2017 - 12:42pm Mr Young.

Certainly a rock band favorite. I believe he got every inch out of life.

11/11/2017 - 10:26pm There is not good reason.

He is such an easy person to dislike.

10/30/2017 - 10:46pm Bravo

That is so funny. Cheers!

10/29/2017 - 5:29pm Wire to Wire Champions

There was a link on the Women’s Track and Field Facebook page that allowed me to watch the live updates/results on FloTrack (which was very cool). The site charted each runner and calculated team results each 1000m. It also indicated change in position per 1k.

Both teams led wire to wire. A truly inspired performance. Congratulations to all. Go Blue!

10/01/2017 - 9:22pm Traverse City tournament.

I watched both games. Beaubien was outstanding. Great location and a wicked drop ball. Threw fastball 65-66 consistently. I thought Katie Alexander behind the plate was outstanding. The star of the defense this day was at 3rd base (Taylor Swearingen ?) who made several outstanding plays.

This is a very athletic team and showed great speed on the bases. That said, the offense was seemingly lackluster. Central threw 4 different pitchers, 1 freshman and 3 seniors, in the 10:30am game in which Michigan really only hit the freshman hard. CMU’s other freshman pitcher, Cloe Mallory, had them off balance for the first 3 innings of the Championship game. She was pulled one batter after taking a line drive off her shin. Only a late game home run put the game out of reach.

I will take great pitching and solid defense any day but the lack of overall power on offense is surprising/concerning.

Watching Beaubien for the next few years is going to be a treat.

04/20/2017 - 2:04pm Mel should be the next coach

Excellent coach. Has done everything necessary to prove he deserves the opportunity. It should be a no-brainer IF that's what Mel wants.  The best point of all is he is truly a good person and will long be a positive representitive of the University of Michigan.

04/20/2017 - 2:00pm Purdue and Northwestern

Both are brutal.  Went to a campus bar for pre-game and it was 95% Michigan fans.  While that was fun, wtf?  Next road trip we will stay in Chicago and take the train north for the game. Purdue isn't much better. Beyond boring.

03/18/2017 - 9:06am Just Do It

You haven't been to a game in a long time. It's going to be a fun game to watch regardless and this team has a legacy already. Treat yourself. Get good tickets. It isn't like you do this all of the time. Is the extra $50-$100 going to change your life versus having an enhanced experience? Buy the tickets you want and enjoy every second.

03/08/2017 - 9:28pm Bucks lose.

And I will sleep well tonight.

02/28/2017 - 5:10pm Filling

Apricot is the bomb!!! Maybe because it is not often available. So good.

02/25/2017 - 4:55pm This team can Beat anyone or Lose to anyone.

Nobody want to play Michigan right now. Still a lot of Jekyll and Hyde with this group.

02/21/2017 - 8:03pm Testing.

What he said. I am happy to volunteer. And comment.

Love this site.

01/07/2017 - 11:18pm Brady Hoke

Is the gift that keeps on giving.

01/07/2017 - 1:01pm If you have to think about it

Don't come to Michigan. Don Brown didn't ponder. He wanted it. That's the guy we need.

01/04/2017 - 8:27pm Double Standard

Louisville tight end Gerald Christian was selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the final selection of the NFL Draft in the seventh round. His contract was worth $2,332,783 with a $52,783 signing bonus.

If a junior in Computer Science was offered a 4 year deal worth $2,500,000. to work for some company that purchased the app he created, everyone would be thrilled. Who knows if this tech company would be around 4 years from now or if the app was even viable in the future. There is risk to both.

Bank the flow. Go to school at night. Graduate either way.

01/01/2017 - 11:44am The fade

Is difficult to throw. Most quarterbacks struggle throwing the ball to the perimeter. Throwing a lofted ball deep enough, high enough, and to the perimeter is really difficult. Far easier to throw bullets to receivers running crossing routes.

You can only ask a player to do what he can do.

11/08/2016 - 10:55am Don't Go

Go to places where you will have fun. Nebraska. Iowa. Wisconsin. Penn St.

I will never ever go to OSU again as you're treated so poorly.

02/01/2016 - 2:57pm Holding Breath....

Oh the joy of one's success being defined by the decisions of 17-18 year old young men making decisions based on an algorithym Carl Sagan can't define.  When the storm subsides Wednesday evening, the ship shall sail where the winds take it; Captain Ahab Harbaugh at the helm.

Order me one.

01/19/2016 - 3:03pm kickers

Kickers are their own program.  Never try to figure what they are thinking.

01/11/2016 - 2:33pm Surprised?

This young man has a great product and is looking at his options.  Why wouldn't he? And why wouldn't suitors (coaches) who can readilly utilize his product actively compete for his services/skill set?  I'm just happy to see he has a strong advisor helping him sort through it all.  If Michigan is the best place for him, great.  It was for me. 

03/25/2011 - 8:42pm what a game

Lynch deserves it.  They had so many chances to lose but.......wwwooooohhhhhooooo!

01/12/2011 - 4:20pm The Hiring of Hoke . . .

I couldn't post this as the system wouldn't let me so I will try here.  Maybe Brian will like it and add a few points to my account.

I was bored and wanted to do something positive regarding the search for Michigan's football coach. There is some swearing so if it might offend you or is inappropriate where you are, please don’t click the link. (or use headphones) All in good fun. Believe in Hoke. Brandon has the right guy. Go Blue!

01/12/2011 - 2:00pm thanks

Answered my question
