30 minutes? That was 15 at the most. Harbaugh would have been better off just releasing a press release of all the greatest hits and just be done with it.

Franklin believes thinking about Michigan a week before the game will help him? Don Brown's been thinking about PSU for a year.

A better Hives song could have been Walk Idiot Walk. But I digress. Either works.

05/23/2018 - 6:56pm I'm not disagreeing

But considering the product it's selling, it seems right up the alley of the target audience. 

04/02/2018 - 12:26pm I know, wrong sport, but

Great moments are born from great opportunity. And that’s what you have here tonight, boys. That’s what you’ve earned here tonight. One game. If we played ‘em ten times, they might win nine.

But not this game. Not tonight. Tonight, we shoot with them. Tonight, we stay with them. And we shut them down because we can!

Tonight, WE are the greatest college basketball team in the world. You were born to be basketball players. Every one of you. And you were meant to be here tonight. This is your time. Their time is done. It’s over.

I’m sick and tired of hearing about what great basketball team Villanova has. Screw ‘em. This is your time.

Now go out there and TAKE IT!

04/01/2018 - 8:56am The aneurysm of swag

Couldn't have come at a better moment

03/31/2018 - 10:50pm Turned it on for the second half

I couldn't listen to the main broadcast after the first half. It definitely made the game more tolerable.

03/26/2018 - 8:47am Here's Sister Jean's Scouting report on us

Moritz Wagner: Tall, Can hit the 3, Lutheran

Muhammad Ali-Abdur Rahkman: Great slasher, Ice cold demeanor at the FT line, Muslim

Jordan Poole: Freshman, Has the Devil's hair, Likes to play the hero.

03/25/2018 - 10:34am I'm half that guy's age

And I don't have nearly the energy Belein has.

03/25/2018 - 7:55am $500?

Charles will do that for ham sandwich.

03/24/2018 - 11:17pm Sorry Sister

We have divine intervention too.

03/24/2018 - 11:09pm AHHHHH!

Basketball is a great sport. John is a great man.
Go Blue!

03/23/2018 - 8:14am Last year I was flying back from China

And was able to watch the game with Oregon on the TV in the headrest in front of me. The game was on CBS, so it was a major channel, though. I also got pretty good reception on my phone once I paid the feej. So just in case the inflight TV doesn't get TBS, you should still be able to get it on your phone.

03/23/2018 - 7:53am Can you imagine if

there was accountability at ESPN? I know these articles are completely subjective. But I think it would be amusing if the writer had to defend his decision to the higher-ups for fear of being reprimanded.
Alas, that's not how it works at the WWL.

03/22/2018 - 11:25pm Natural

Ass Whooping. Go Blue!

03/22/2018 - 9:35pm That 3

is going to get Baird so laid when he gets back to AA.

03/19/2018 - 12:44pm That wide shot of Davis

makes it even more saddening. The lonesome free throw shooter.

03/18/2018 - 7:29pm Arguably one of the best weekends ever

Couldn't have asked for anything better.

03/18/2018 - 5:27pm Tom

Looks like you chose the hard way again.

03/18/2018 - 5:19pm Well, they played defense

And we thought they weren't allowed to do that.

03/18/2018 - 1:19am Jordan Poole

Is the new Swaggy P. 

03/18/2018 - 12:35am Survive and advance

MAAR with the senior composure to survey the situation and Poole showing the future is bright

03/12/2018 - 10:22am There's always YouTube

03/10/2018 - 2:02pm That final sequence

before the half was just horrible defense by UC. They don't scare me at all.
They press and trap after every made basket, but so did VCU. And we know how that turned out.

03/10/2018 - 1:43pm Here at the UC game

The arena is more than half empty. The teams brought pep bands and cheerleaders, but they are also doubling as the student sections. Also, there are more people here in Wichita yellow then any other team.

03/03/2018 - 4:46pm Now Tom, you could have chosen the easy way or the hard way

Looks like you chose the hard way.

03/03/2018 - 4:23pm #WeOwnState

Sorry about another tough week Tom

02/25/2018 - 11:33pm Agreed

Last year, it seemed like the selection committee already had us locked into our seed, regardless of winning the tournament championship. Probably because they couldn't do any major revisions hours before the bracket release.

This year, they'll have a full week to examine everyone's body of work before any other conference. 

02/21/2018 - 11:45pm Let's do that hockey

That's what's up

02/18/2018 - 7:59pm SMELL DAT ASS LEPRECHAUN

Go Blue!

02/08/2018 - 11:11am [/shrugs, smiles]

That might be Jim's polite way of saying, "If I ever see him in the street, he's going to get these hands."

01/07/2018 - 5:34pm Izzo finally got teed up

for going out to halfcourt to yell at the refs. I didn't think that was possible. Then Dakich hit a bank three at the buzzer. Good for him.

01/04/2018 - 7:20pm Honestly

I'm waiting for the Drevno and Hamilton posts. It's the devil you know and the devil you don't. 

01/02/2018 - 10:42am I'm not going to say I'm zen

But yesterday I was in the stadium watching the implosion up close, and I didn't emote one time. It just happened in front of my eyes, but I'd seen this movie before and knew how it ended. So it was what it was and, like many of us, we're numb to it by now. 

Brian's right. If it gets better next year, great. I'll be happy as hell. If it doesn't, well, what's new? Nothing we say on this blog, to our friends, etc can change the outcome of this year or years to come. If Michigan wants to get back to relevancy, they have to find a way and do it themselves. Screaming from the mountaintop achieves nothing.

01/02/2018 - 9:11am Well, he's not going to give away any information now

Or seethe in front of the media. Seasons over, no reason for that. I wish he would have said "eye opening experience" instead of great. Hopefully, this game starts the corrections for next year. Otherwise, we might fall dangerously close to being the sixth best team in the conference for years to come.

12/29/2017 - 2:11pm I'd wait until Jan 2

They'll be dirt cheap by then

12/23/2017 - 7:31pm I found a bottle at Total Wine

If you're in the Detroit area, the Rusty Keg in Sterling Heights has it on the back wall

12/23/2017 - 5:13pm Old Granddad 114

$30 More bang for your buck

12/20/2017 - 2:37pm Es ist toll

ein Michigan Wolverine zu sein

12/20/2017 - 9:29am As an alumnus I'm okay with this

If only we can find a defense

12/19/2017 - 1:43pm Say Harbaugh at Garber five times fast

A great tongue twister

12/14/2017 - 12:42am 141 2/3 chance

Steiner math.

12/12/2017 - 2:17pm That Nunez video

Is all types of high school AV Club goodness. All that was missing was a starwipe.

11/29/2017 - 1:18pm Playing South Carolina

Just means revisiting that Clowney hit over and over again. Hopefully, Gary or Hurst can make people forget about it.

11/28/2017 - 12:26pm My take on the OSU game

11/27/2017 - 2:05pm Steel in the spine

From here, we put our head down, don't attract attention to ourselves, prepare for the bowl game and a low-key offseason and come ready to play in South Bend. Laying in the weeds.

11/26/2017 - 6:19pm And yet Joe Moorehead

Isn't involved in any of these rumors . I can't believe that Schiano or Sumlin is a superior choice to him.

11/26/2017 - 6:13pm Thanks for everything, Wilton

Go rip it up wherever you land

11/24/2017 - 7:08pm Regardless of how the season went

I'm glad my alma mater was the one who put the final nail in the coffin

11/21/2017 - 2:57am The offense is based so much on execution

Which I have no doubt will improve over the season. But LSU relied more on its athleticism than running an executable, efficient offense and it cost us. And early in the season, playing more athletic teams that rely on that advantage while waiting for our execution to get better might cost us again, but we'll see. LSU didn't look disciplined and who know how many times they just threw the ball and the basket and it went in. Can't do anything about that. At the end of the day, basketball is about making shots.

It's disappointing to lose, but there are positives. Not sure about keeping a freshman PG against a VCU-like trapping and pressing defense, but I'm sure Beilein had his reasons.
