I read that as Brian taking a bit of a shot at Mattison perhaps insinuating that maybe he was a product of the talent in the program rather than coaching? Idk i could be super off base on this


Edit: ahhh i think it was an age comment. Disregard my nonsense

Because we all know that the MGoBlog and the Bar Trivia crowds probably have big overlap, what has your go-to trivia names over the years been? 

Our team was  "Otrivia Newton John" until this obnoxious team came in, most wearing Harvard sweaters (seriously?!?!?!?!) and calling themselves "Romeo's Poison".


We now go by Juliet's Antidote. 


Anyway happy Friday

That right there was the "I wonder how this team responds if they can't make anything" game. 

They found a way to gut that win out somehow and hit clutch shots. Lots lots LOTS to work on, this will serve the team really well - next practice is going to be rough ;)

Love Coach B finding "his guys" that fit his system... obviously it works.  But I would LOVE to see us nab some 5 star top talent. I think Walker Kessler would be a great start. There's no reason we can't pull in a 5star guy and a couple Beilein guys each year.

I have never seen one of my teams win a title. Notable instances include both national title basketball games and the Falcons Super Bowl collapse *sobs*

Good a time as any to post this: Pictured, in the background of that gif is (a young) me, seated 20 rows behind the michigan bench thanks to a group of generous Michigan fans and MGoBloggers. I never really got the opportunity to officially thank them for the ticket, but that was one of the best experiences of my life. 

I had planned to fly into Dallas that morning with my parents for something unrelated to basketball, and we drove straight to the stadium and tried to scalp tickets.  I was walking around with a finger in the air, just wanting to get in the stadium, when a group of 3 or 4 michigan fans walked to me, offered me a ticket for free, saying it was an extra in a buy-5 package that was cheaper than just four regular tickets or something.  I think I handed them a 10$ bill for the effort, and we headed into the stadium, and kept going down and down and down to our seats... I know they were MGoBloggers because we were all screaming "WE HAD SUBS" and "SPACE BITCHES.


So whoever you are, thanks.

Question about Saturday's game's effect on recruiting: 

I know it is a popular refrain here and elsewhere that "one single game doesn't effect a recruit's decision making".  Does the nature of Saturday's game possibly break that rule? Or does 3 10-win seasons in 4 years for Harbaugh trump that result?

Very true. But I simply don't understand not throwing it either to the endzone or clocking it when there were ~14 seconds left. Don't even give the opportunity for something stupid (or illegal, which did happen) come in play. Take out that variable by not being tackled in bounds

Yeah I feel like this is the type of game Notre Dame (or literally any other team) would overlook/stumble on when its their like 5th toughest game. Like if ND had to play a top 20 USC, Mich, Stanford, FSU, etc and then Cuse is looming.... Reminds of Clemson's game @BC last week.  I think ND takes this

Speaking of BTN and cable, I am hijacking this a bit to ask: does anyone know what the status of getting BTN out of footprint is for people that have Comcast? I am willing to pay, but it kills me not having BTN with hockey and basketball season starting... I know Comcast reinstated BTN in the footprint, but what about those out of footprint? Ugh.

I know this is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but I, as a life-long Atlanta resident, would be remiss if I didn't at least say that it is an awesome city that you should totally visit if you get a chance... I wouldn't exactly make it a vacation destination, but if you're trying to go to a Super Bowl, CFP game, NCAA final, etc., you would really enjoy your time, I think.

10/23/2018 - 9:11am I really am not sure. I…

I really am not sure. I could be wrong, but in the past when Urban has had to make a mid-season offensive gameplan adjustment, it's been going back to the read option "bread and butter"... running it more, etc. I've never seen them have to adjust in this direction, but I am sure they are capable.  What makes me wonder is if Haskins' arm can stay attached to his body.. he threw what, 75 times against Purdue? thats a lot. 

10/23/2018 - 9:01am I am just glad the game they…

I am just glad the game they slipped up on wasn't the one immediately before the Michigan game. I feel like too many times they will make Urban the playcaller or fix whatever major issue they had right before we play them... 

10/14/2018 - 9:39pm Not to be "that guy" but…

Not to be "that guy" but your comment reminded me of my favorite themed party from college.... a hurricane had just hit, and we threw a "Thots and Prayers" party - come dressed scantily clad or dressed as a religious figure.  There was plenty of both, but the most common was girls dressed as rabbis, and guys dressed as strippers.  it was 10/10

I missed that video, just wondering, what did Harbaugh say to Wilton? What year was this? thanks

This marks a Decade without a loss to Northwestern. Especially with the East/West divide, that could really turn in to quite a streak.


Thank you for this, Ace. Made my day

As a Davidson grad, I'm just here to agree with everything you said and add an emphatic eff UNCC.  

5 in a row in hoops. 4-0 in my undergrad. Two amazing trips across town to watch the Cats win (a commute that most of their campus makes daily)  Won our last three in Halton. GO CATS

That Dave Brandon story was something else.  I had no idea that he offered Fitz the job.... was this public knowledge? If so, who else was offered? Not sure how I missed that whole thing

Gotcha, thanks. I figure it was referring to a good player, I just couldnt tell who

I remember when he started at shooting guard in 2012-13 to start the year and after like 2 games was immediately stapled to the bench in favor of Stauskas and eventually skinny Levert 

02/11/2018 - 10:42pm Hot Take Incoming:

I dont think anything that has judges is truly a sport.  


And yes, the way that some officials can exert influence over a game in basketball, etc.... it's borderline for me

11/29/2017 - 10:03am Davidson

My school, Davidson, plays UNC on Friday.  Im looking for the rare back-to-back double win from my two teams over the same school in the same week.  Ideally, Michigan would humiliate and tire the Heels out so much that Davidson can dagger some threes en route to a huge win.

10/08/2017 - 1:22pm Jed Fisch

I think we are really missing Jed Fisch, and I really don't think he got enough credit for what he did for this program.....

10/07/2017 - 11:22pm Not bad!

If there's any positive it was the punting and kicking. Really well done by Michigan in some nasty stuff. I'd give it a A-

I've met this guy's dad! His dad is a former Northwestern player who played for the falcons for some time and owns a couple wine stores in my area of the north atlanta suburbs.  

His dad always said he wanted his kids to get a good education, and they liked it up north - add in Michigan's winning program and this is as good as it gets. Definitely a family that was okay sending a kid to M!!!!! Great family, great guy. 

Side note, he goes to the high school that was the rival of mine.  Grrrrrrrrrr


03/19/2017 - 3:03pm A10 Basketball

I cover Atlantic 10 basketball, so hopefully I can provide a little insight into Rhode Island.  The best Big Ten comparison I can draw is Minnesota.  They don't shoot the three particurally well, and do most of their damage inside. Of course, they dont have as a dominant big man like Minnesota does, but they are still dangerous.  When URI gets hot from three, which is rare, but it happens, they can beat anyone because they still get theirs in the paint. They have guards in EC Matthews and Kuran Iverson that can take games over. They are athletic and long.  While I think this is a prefered matchup to Oregon, they are not a push over by any means.

All I want is a replay/gif/video of that dunk......

Ace please

01/31/2017 - 2:20pm City Hype

My city (Atlanta) just added and is about to kick off their inaugural MLS season.  Following the building of the team from nothing, a new stadium, and an engaged front office has been exicting for me - and I can speak for the rest of Atlanta when I say - for everyone (to the tune of 28,000 out of 30,000 season tickets already sold).  


There is a market, I think in Detroit for an MLS team.  The thing I have figured out is that stadium location is probably the most important thing for any new team. I don't know where the Wayne County jail is locacted compared to the other stadiums in the area, but I hope it's a good location

12/22/2016 - 6:32pm Welcome!

This indeed is a "classic Beilein recruit", however I would always love to see more "Top End" dudes. That said, let's see how he develops before passing judgement.

10/17/2016 - 3:10pm Note to Brian:

Note to Brian:

Georgia State =/= Georgia Southern.  You got this flipped on the podcast as well when Georgia State played Wisconsin.  

GaSt is a new football program who's total butt and made their first bowl game last year and don't look likely to replicate it. 

GaSouthern was a really really good FCS team and made the jump with App State, and have been really good so far at the FBS level.  They are the ones that run the option/Fritzbone/Flexbone attack.  They are quite good, and Purdue should get their old coach.

Ayeee! I was hoping somebody would notice! Probably the highlight of my life for the last week or so... 

04/04/2016 - 9:18pm I have Villanova

I have Villanova 77 - 74 UNC. 

But I want to say, I think Ryan Arcidiacono is such a key.  I see in him the same "thing" that I saw with Stu Douglas and Novak and Jordan Morgan... just a level headedness and total control of the team as a senior leader.  

12/20/2015 - 4:31pm New England

One interesting thing of note is that this will be the furthest west he has coached - having been at Uconn, BC, Umass, Yale, and several other places.

02/12/2015 - 3:21pm Thanks/NC Game


The worst that happened to me was at the National Championship Game in Atlanta against Louisville.  I had gotten tickets from a good friend of mine who is an IU fan who reserved them through his company (they had gotten a whole row to give out to employees) and he was banking on his Hoosiers making it farther than they did.  Anyways, most of the people in the section (corner of the dome, about 40-60 rows back opposite the Louisville bench) were corporate people who mostly had neutral (or louisville) stuff on.  After the first opening mins, everyone sat down for a commercial, and after that I immediately stood back up when action resumed.  This was met by a chorus of boos and calls from behind me.  I turned around, and the people were screaming at me to sit down so I could see.  I told them I wanted to watch the action on the court instead of the video board.  This, coupled with cheering and clapping with every three that Albrecht rained from the Heavens did not settle well with me.  A man and his son sitting next to me had also been given tickets, and were in bright Maize shirts.  Amid high fives after another Albrech three, I remember one man standing up, walking over to us by the isle and screaming "sit the fuck down or ill call the security.  its not a rock concert. sit down". This said in front of the guy's ~10 year old kid.  His statement was met with cheers from around us.  Security guy came down, took one look at the situation, and flat out told the guy we werent doing anthing wrong.  He and his group left at the half they were so disgusted.  

02/12/2015 - 3:04pm This happens

This happens to me a fair bit. Part of it comes with being 6-4, but I dont know quite how to respond to this? Any tips or hints on what to do other than meekly utter a "sorry" and sit down?
