05/07/2018 - 4:14pm Disappointed lack of rhyming

"My stance is clear...  improvement is essential

for all to reach their potential!"

I was just disappointed the rest of your post didn't rhyme

04/27/2018 - 5:40pm Not a Sitcom Dad

Not a real great time to be comparing people to sit-com dads. . . just sayin.

04/16/2018 - 2:54pm The reactions

The reactions to the videocameras alone would be awesome!

04/06/2018 - 2:28pm One other difference

In contrast to 2013, there are now 3 Beilein-coached MBB alumni peforming well in the NBA.  Not sure if this is a material difference for recruiting or not.

If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
04/02/2018 - 12:15pm Great

Then we're a lock!

04/02/2018 - 12:15pm Great

Then we're a lock!

04/02/2018 - 12:14pm Recency Bias

I'm sure there would have been more contrarians if Michigan's last game was the A&M game and Villanova hadn't just had a record setting game from 3.

04/02/2018 - 12:06pm Golf Clap

Golf clap. Well played.

03/12/2018 - 10:18am I'll take the field

Taking the field over MSU would be a nice bet

03/08/2018 - 2:37pm OK, team D then

OK, team D then.  unless there are other factors, e.g. injuries, head to head A versus D, etc.

03/07/2018 - 4:57pm Obsessive

This is precisely the type of obsessively thorough analysis that makes me love this site.

03/02/2018 - 6:20pm I now feel stupid

I now feel stupid for having wondered at the beginning of the season if this team would make the tournament.  Never doubt Beilein!

03/02/2018 - 1:02pm Not part of the team?

What, you mean that we're not actually part of the team?  I guess I didn't need to put on my jockstrap this morning after all.


03/01/2018 - 4:27pm 30 for 30

What if I told you that a John Belein team would be 0-10 from 3 and have 17 fouls and still up by 17 points?

03/01/2018 - 3:54pm Giddyup!


02/20/2018 - 5:53pm Mano a Mano

The only practical way to settle this is a Beilien vs. Marshall no holds barred cage match.

02/15/2018 - 1:45pm Hide Yo Sharks

Hide Yo Sharks, Hide Yo Elasmobranchii!!

02/09/2018 - 2:00pm Best Trio of Wins

Not only that, but MBB has the best trio of wins for games played on a Tuesday when the moon was full and the relative humidity was less than 40%.


02/09/2018 - 1:52pm Slayer - Raining Blood

Slayer Raining Blood would be an amazing hype song

02/09/2018 - 11:49am Never tell me the odds!

Never tell me the odds!

02/09/2018 - 11:47am Kudos

Happy for Grant and kudos to the medical staff involved in saving his leg and his recovery!

02/07/2018 - 5:35pm Now that would be fun

Now that would be fun to watch! 

01/30/2018 - 12:59pm I think that I saw a commercial about that

once or twice. Or a couple of hundred times. Thank you BTN

01/30/2018 - 11:56am Delete - double post



01/30/2018 - 11:56am Percentage versus Inaction

Various comments in the thread argue over whether the percentage of athletes involved in these incidents is relevant versus whether the inaction of the coaches is more important. I'd suggest that they are both relevant. The percentage of athletes involved shows whether or not there is a pervasive culture of sexual assault in each of the programs. The inaction of the coaches to the specific incidents directly shows whether the coaches are culpable for fostering a culture permissive of sexual assault.

01/17/2018 - 9:37pm Quit Drinking and Go to Bed was at least a little bit fun. . .

or at least fun in the sense that we could point and laugh at him.

10/25/2017 - 12:24pm Grandmother

Lol. My grandmother once referred to it as a "wrestling costume"

10/03/2017 - 6:50pm + 1 Million

One million likes, sir. I would buy this shirt in a heartbeat!

10/03/2017 - 6:39pm Flows from the Leadership

Like with Purdue, leadership sets the tone and dirty play is the result of the messaging and tone set by the coach.

09/26/2017 - 9:21pm Or. . . .

or pursuing terrorism, human trafficking, tax fraud, counterfeiting, illegal arms sales, etc., etc. There are so many better purposes for FBI allocated tax dollars. Frankly, the FBI's involvement in this seems like it was driven by what the FBI thought would be interesting, not by some priority. It seems similar to when congress spend tax dollars passing resolutions congratulating sports teams on their championships. 

09/26/2017 - 9:02pm Also gets low

He also drops his level to hit Speight on the ground.  purely intentional

09/24/2017 - 4:55pm No quarter

No quarter for seating in the middling ranks of the Big Ten!

09/24/2017 - 11:22am Roid Rage Leadership

This is exactly right. Leaders set the tone for the defense.  Captain Roid Rage's leadership resulted in dirty plays and a slew of penalties and ejections. Live by the Roid Rage, die by the Roid Rage.

09/19/2017 - 6:19pm Stefon

The intro sentence "This two-throw sequence has it all:" sounded like Bill Hader playing Stefon on SNL. I was then moderately disappointed by the video.

09/16/2017 - 5:00pm Reason

to avoid revealing plays or because we don't trust Speight to make accurate throws?

09/16/2017 - 2:32pm Corner Fade

Serious question: Has Speight ever successfully thrown a corner fade?

To quote the 1980s Time-Life Mysteries of the Unknown ads - "Read the Book"

09/11/2017 - 6:29pm Live Reps

Lol - "2 weeks into live reps" I'm imagining this in an old-timey black and white film reel announcer voice. "Well folks, we're two weeks into live reps here at the old gridiron where the boys from the University of Michigan have just defeated the Cincinati Bearcats."

09/11/2017 - 3:36pm Some, not full of imho

So, in my humble opinion, I think it's an overstatement to call this Board full of misogyny. But it exists. And, since you asked about examples, just yesterday I read a comment that  criticized Ohio State players by calling them a bunch of girls. Calling the players girls was clearly meant to be an insult . It made me cringe a bit.  But, it's also noteworthy that the comment stood out to me because I don't think this Board is full of similar comments. 

09/10/2017 - 8:54am Seriously.

How good has Grant Perry been over two games?  

09/10/2017 - 8:48am 2017 Speight = 2016 Speight

We need: 2017 Speight > 2016 Speight.

We currently have: 2017 Speight = 2016 Speight 


09/05/2017 - 4:58pm Slippery Rock

Slippery Rock, obviously
