07/17/2018 - 12:24pm I was at home with my family…

I was at home with my family, and I had forgotten that it was St patty’s day. Some of those bar scenes were great.  I’ll bet that was a lot of fun. 

05/16/2018 - 6:35am Formula for success

1- win shitty division with hot pitching down the stretch
2- listen to Bos or NY whine about archane division structure and the best team not winning a playoff series
3- ????
4- profit

05/15/2018 - 1:54pm Road rage

Hmm... makes me wonder if this was a road rage incident. Complete speculation.

05/14/2018 - 11:00am Cost vs quality

I’m curious, is this really as simple as a cost vs quality issue? The implication is UM needs more revenue from OOS students to fund an ‘uncommon’ education. Would UM’s undergraduate experience and education quality be negatively impacted by incremental cost cutting? I’m sure a lot of universities are considering this question.

Also, what is UM’s responsibility wrt instate education? Does the lowering % of state support lower the obligation the U has to the state? Interesting topics to think about.

05/11/2018 - 2:00pm Congrats Austin!

I think I remember from the espn piece that he’s marrying a former M volleyball player. Their kids will be tall.

04/16/2018 - 8:36am Hit machine

Hopefully our D Jeter also gets to 3000 hits

04/14/2018 - 3:58pm Meh

It’s spring football, and he’s giving his fan base some red meat. If harbaugh tweeted something like this about OSU we’d all be patting each other on the back.

04/14/2018 - 11:13am Thanks for the memories

Hope to see a lot of Mo in the NBA

04/13/2018 - 4:33pm Comparison

Let’s compare the job that Engler is doing in a time of crisis/transition vs that of Hacket. I know it’s not the same job or situation, but the leadership style differences are stark.

04/13/2018 - 7:07am Disagree

That’s kind of like saying bumping the football scholarship limit to 100 won’t make a team better bc only 11 players are on the field at once.

03/30/2018 - 12:13pm Don’t understand the argument

I don’t understand the argument here. Basically, you’re asking why Beilein shouldn’t have been fired mid-season? Bc after the season, he obviously shouldn’t have been fired.

How about this, you don’t fire a coach midseason that has (1) run a respectable, clean program, (2) took a team to a championship game, (3) won multiple conference titles. That’s not something that attracts good coaching candidates in the future. Dumb argument all the way around.

03/27/2018 - 7:10pm 30 vs 24 second

The shot clock comment on college vs NBA reminded me of a thought I had during the game. I wonder if Hamilton’s strategy of the soft press shortened the effective half court shot clock enough to hurt Michigan offensively, especially in the 1st half. May be something we see again this weekend.

03/26/2018 - 9:57am Sister Jean

Is backing the wrong horse in the FF. It’s not too late to go blue!

03/25/2018 - 10:38am EE Saturday advantage

I wonder if there is an advantage in playing the Saturday EE games bc the winning teams’ fans can scoop all the tickets from fans of teams that have lost before the Sunday games even occur.

03/25/2018 - 8:56am Can’t wait

Driving over next weekend, will be my first b-ball game since the Illinois game where Harbaugh was announced as coach.

03/20/2018 - 6:22am Not a competition

I just don’t see why we need to be Rankine the different units of temperature measurement. It’s not a competition.

03/18/2018 - 11:50am I caught that too

It’s funny, I’ve heard coach B call him Rahk, so I figured that was it. The site has been calling him MAAR since he arrived, I thought maybe they knew something.

03/18/2018 - 10:40am Austin davis

Great face he’s making.

03/17/2018 - 11:47pm Wagner

That’s 3 of 4 of his fouls complete phantom jobs. What gives?

03/15/2018 - 11:41pm Of course

Bunch of dudes with suits untangling a rats nest of wires. Perfect.

03/11/2018 - 10:36pm I agree

Maybe have the committee for seeding and brackets with some flexibility from the algorithm. The 68 should be chosen by computer.

03/11/2018 - 9:26pm Gonzaga

That may be a game worth pushing the button on. Expect the line to swing to OSU, the zags will win that game.

03/11/2018 - 8:49pm She strong

Fist baby, came out sideways. She’s didn’t scream er nothin.

03/11/2018 - 8:27pm Tickets in advance

I feel like it would be a cool app if you could buy tickets to the 1st or 2nd weekend, and then trade them with the fans of other teams once you find out where your game is. That seems like it would work.

03/11/2018 - 2:04pm Crean

I had heard Crean is a serious candidate. No inside sources or anything, just mentioned by some talking heads on sports radio.

03/10/2018 - 9:55pm Does OT impact pair wise?

Is this better than just a loss, regardless of result?

03/10/2018 - 8:44pm Woooooo!

Great finish going to the ground

03/10/2018 - 8:04pm Question

Why is it single elimination this round if they’re only playing one game? Couldn’t they just have had a series?

03/10/2018 - 9:46am Rest vs rust

Honestly, no team benefits from the time off more than Purdue. Getting Edwards healthy will be a huge boost for them.

03/07/2018 - 1:57pm Selling short

Selling short on Sparty seems like a pretty good bet.

03/07/2018 - 1:50pm Virginia

I really don’t know what to do with them in my bracket. On one hand, I feel like I see them struggling as of late against some average teams. On the other hand, look at that ACC record. I can’t remember a team dominating like that. I’ve seen them play several times this year, their win at Duke may have been the most impressive win of season (given the way they took it to them on the road). Very torn.

03/07/2018 - 10:03am Too many

I don’t disagree with the overall point, but we shouldn’t use MSU as the standard of comparison for the conduct of our team, coaches and staff. Also, isn’t that precisely the same argument that Sparty uses on sexual assault? Only 17 instances, that’s not that many considering how many players come through the program.

It’s not a good thing to have leaders by title behaving not like actual leaders.

03/07/2018 - 9:40am Dumb

Drinking and driving is always dumb, but it’s especially dumb in ann arobor where there are so many other options for getting from point A to point B while intoxicated.

03/07/2018 - 6:23am Opponent specific

While I agree with your general point, Part of the reason the path ended at +1500 was bc State and Purdue won their games. M was a dog in those two games, and I think those were the only two teams where that would have been the case.

03/06/2018 - 6:07am Schedule

Unfortunately, as stupid as this sounds, the favorite depends on the schedule. As we saw this year.

03/04/2018 - 6:32pm Refs

It feels like the zebras are trying to get Purdue back in the game.

03/04/2018 - 6:25pm Teske

Teske has outplayed Haas today.

03/04/2018 - 6:24pm Z

That was classic, I started cracking up.

03/04/2018 - 5:04pm Simmons

Man those were two good looks. Have to hit those.

03/04/2018 - 9:46am McQuaid

Floor slaps notwithstanding, I actually like that guys game. It’s unbeleivable to me that he doesn’t get more minutes with the weaknesses MSU has in the backcourt.

03/03/2018 - 4:40pm 3 in a row

3-1 vs the greatest MSU class that came back for a championship... only one of those games was in AA.

03/03/2018 - 3:04pm Woof

Bad offensive half. Defense, with the exception of some rebounding issues, has been stellar. I really like the switching and help on bridges and Winston on the outside.

03/03/2018 - 2:52pm Winston

On more thing, when Winston is on the floor, we get a layup. Almost every possession. Good job by the staff to exploit that weakness.

03/03/2018 - 2:51pm Poole and dumcan

I feel like the offense bogs down a little without one of them on the floor. Mo getting hot would be helpful.

03/03/2018 - 2:44pm Open 3s for mo and Duncan

I feel like open threes for Duncan and Mo are good shots. Just haven’t gone down this game... yet.

03/03/2018 - 2:34pm Getting decent shots

Would like to see a little more patients on O, maybe draw a foul or two. Really seems like shots just aren’t going down.

03/03/2018 - 2:06pm App not started

No coverage on the app yet.

03/03/2018 - 12:55pm Medical staff

Is it unusual that the tests at the NFL combine would catch something that the college medical staffs at a place like UM wouldn’t?

03/03/2018 - 9:36am Tv tonight

Do you know if the game is on TV tonight?

02/24/2018 - 5:09pm UVA

Probably should be the favorite to win it all. If you look at their record this year, they have beaten a lot of really good teams. Pittsburg is trash, but
