05/21/2018 - 1:20pm Add “mulch help” to the list

Add “mulch help” to the list of reasons I’d like to be M’s basketball coach. (Top reason against me coaching: I like M basketball to have success.)

This is the last year I mulch. I’m going to explore permanent options, whatever those might be. Large rocks, growing grass, setting fires, etc. And I use a shovel, which is apparently like a 2-point shot with a foot on the 3-point line. I learn something every day, but then I just forget it.

In things that matter, I recently saw an interview with Moe that used that graphic about how he finished compared to peers. Really happy to see how well he did in some of the agility tests. Hope he lands in the first round on another offense that also suits him well.

05/02/2018 - 12:06pm I heard a Pitfall sound

I heard a Pitfall sound effect on the radio yesterday, and now we have this thread. I wonder if the 2600 will fire up after all of these years.

We’ve had a tremendous amount of fun watching these guys this year; here’s to hoping they get to experience something special tonight.

GO BLUE!

M scored 115... and lost by 34. I don’t think we’ll see another game like that.

03/31/2018 - 9:47pm Michigan won’t collapse

Michigan won’t collapse inside and leave shooters wide open on the 3-point line. Maybe Kansas should start with that concept.

About the first three times I heard it, I thought one of my neighbors bought a jalopy and wanted me to come out and see it.

So proud of the players and coaches! They refused to let an opportunity get away from them.

Go get one more! Hail!

03/31/2018 - 7:03pm Down 7 at half with Rawk and

Down 7 at half with Rawk and Duncan combining for 0 points. M had a chance to build a big lead early, didn’t, and now needs to come out strong like in the Montana game. Take charge early in the second half and forget the first 20-minute clunker.

Teams look nervous, which is to be expected. Should settle in soon.

M won the anthem. Let’s keep it rolling!

Love some Dio, although it’s pretty obvious he was a Longhorns fan.

03/28/2018 - 10:00pm I finally bought a recumbent

I finally bought a recumbent trike a couple of weeks ago after about 15 years of being too frugal to buy a bike. I need a safety flag with 6-foot pole to fly from the back of the bike so I don’t end up under a truck like Indiana Jones or Clark Griswold, and I’d love a helmet design or a blue block M on a maize background.

I haven’t been able to find any M-related safety flags elsewhere online; I checked the link you provided but didn’t see anything. Does anyone know where I can get one? Thanks in advance.

03/27/2018 - 9:59pm I don’t wear M stuff if I’m

I don’t wear M stuff if I’m in public and trying to avoid hearing about the game. Anybody can provide you clues you don’t want, be it a happy M fan approaching you or a rival idiot spoiling it.

I think headphones and no gear is a safer approach, but this isn’t a regular-season game; even casual basketball fans have interest. Good luck!

03/27/2018 - 9:49pm SH does set up Last Minute

SH does set up Last Minute Service Centers where you can pick up/drop off hard copy tickets. Your selling post won’t go live until you turn in the hard copy tickets, IIRC.

I only have experience with this once, in Dayton for the First Four. I’m going to guess that at major events, this center is much closer to the venue. I’m also going to assume it will usually be a far better setup than the disgusting motel I had to go to.

03/27/2018 - 6:55pm Cronin makes more at UC than

Cronin makes more at UC than Mack made at X, and Cronin and his teams have had some ugly incidents in games against X over the years. I don’t think X would have any interest in Cronin.

03/26/2018 - 10:35am He’s a Buckeye that I’ll

He’s a Buckeye that I’ll actually root for in the NBA. There was a story on him and his family on The Journey; his brother suffered cardiac arrest during a practice in high school and was saved by trainers, CPR, and a defibrillator. KBD’s family now raises money to purchase AEDs for some schools that don’t have them. Seems like a great family from the little I know about them.

03/25/2018 - 4:39pm I’ve been to tourney games

I’ve been to NCAA tourney games before, and there was no alcohol for sale. The arena even covered up alcohol advertising. I can’t remember for sure which games I was at but I think at the Butler/Duke final all of the cup holders at the seats normally had a beer logo for Colts games, and every one was covered by a sticker.

I also remember there were no alcohol sales at M’s First Four game against Tulsa in Dayton because I remember my friend’s face when he found out the bad news.

03/24/2018 - 11:27pm Love the way Matthews picked

Love the way Matthews picked up the team tonight, and the way Duncan closed down the stretch. So proud of the players and coaches.

Go get two more!

Despite being down 75 the whole game according to the announcers, we’re still Champions of the West!

I see you’re a dessert before dinner kind of guy.

I’m late to this celebration, but I’m sticking a 25-footer in A&M’s eye, too.

HAIL!

Impossible. All week, I’ve heard talking heads say how great Izzo is.

Well, he is great at assembling talent and not developing it.

I wonder what the over/under would be on how long I’d watch that.

Also, Duncan scored 6+. We knew it had to be a win.

03/18/2018 - 12:41am Love the shot of Duncan

Love the shot of Duncan processing the win in the locker room. He went from not getting to play and help his team to thinking his career is over.

Nope. PLAY ON!

Jordan’s cutting off that manbun, and he’s washing out all the grease, too.

Fucking get some, young fella!

03/17/2018 - 11:39pm Time to wake up, gentlemen.

Time to wake up, gentlemen. You don’t want to end your year to a team that’s nothing beyond a bull playing hero ball.

LET’S GO BLUE!

I hate all officials. Forever.

I want the offense I know and love to come back.

My son picked UMBC, and he fits none of those categories. I thought his category would be “has no idea what he’s doing,” but I’m the one who had VA.

03/16/2018 - 6:04pm The way Texas “uses” Mo Bamba

The way Texas “uses” Mo Bamba is shocking. He’s been relegated to being average.

Also, a WV player dunked a few minutes ago, and then he “raised the roof.” I felt like I was in a time machine.

03/16/2018 - 1:00am What about Nessler? I thought

What about Nessler? I thought he was having a stroke multiple times tonight. Dude must sleep 15 hours a day to handle a game normally. He made at least 20 mistakes in one broadcast.

Survive and advance. Get the bad out today; get after the Cougars on Saturday.

Go Blue!

When M scores, there’s a flash of yellow on the on-screen scoreboard—and I’ll be damned if I don’t worry about a flag every time. Talk about conditioning.

Great news! Keep the team healthy and keep the lineup flexibility Livers provides.

03/09/2018 - 9:56am I didn’t try to buy tickets

I didn’t try to buy tickets to the Detroit tourney games months ago because I thought I’d be moving to the West Coast, yet I’ve stayed put.

If M is placed there, I’ll be thrilled for the team and the fans who can hopefully pack the place. But I’ll be kicking myself for not buying tickets when I should have.

Go Blue!

Yep, I think this is just an individual thing. If you live near NY or have been wanting to visit, this might have been a great opportunity for you. If you live in the Midwest and want to stay closer to home, you might wait for the return to Chicago or Indy.

In interviews, Coach Beilein made it clear he thought the chance to play in MSG was special.

03/09/2018 - 9:21am I’m certainly not trying to

I’m certainly not trying to run anything, or make anything a “good ol boys club.” Real posters, new or old, can bring value and perspective. If you want to believe that posters who sign up and post a thousand times in their first week aren’t likely trolls, that’s your prerogative. I admire your optimism. I’ve been wrong before, and I’ll be wrong again.

It seems strange that you’d call for inclusion by bashing me for not being seasoned enough, though. FWIW, I started lurking here during the Rich Rod search, so I’ve seen patterns of new accounts for much longer than when I finally signed up.

03/08/2018 - 4:46pm It seems that about 90% of

It seems that about 90% of new accounts since around November are troll accounts. I’m stupid, and even I can see that. Too many high-volume superfans who just picked themselves up and decided to verbally poop all over the site after years of being quiet.

There are some longtime trolls you know you can ignore, and there are some longtime solid posters who root for other teams and are clear about that. It isn’t about claimed allegiances for me.

03/06/2018 - 8:37pm I love to watch the selection

I love to watch the selection show, but 2 hours is even too much for me and my set ways. Just like the last time they tried to milk the show for all they could, something will leak and legions will be appreciative.

We don’t know yet which seeds will be where. It’s possible there could be two 2 seeds at a site (such as last year in Indianapolis). It’s also possible that you could get half of a regional—a 2 and a 3 at the same site (like it always used to be years ago).

That was a big 40 seconds. M pulled scorers for rest, yet still outscored Purdue 3-0.
