|05/20/2018 - 3:44pm||Hutch signed a 5-year contract extension||
in 2017. She's won Michigan's only National Championship in softball and was in the title game as recently as 2015. She coached the Big Ten's only National Championship and has the conference's most recent appearance as well.
She's a legend, and more importantly, she's a legend that is *still* winning Big Ten titles and recruiting nationally prominent players despite inherent disadvantages that cold weather climate teams have to deal with. She's also won 19 Big Ten regular season titles and 9 tournament titles and is a 17-time Big Ten coach of the year, including this year.
She's a consistent winner in the conference and has Michigan on the national scene year-in and year-out. She's not going anywhere, until she wants to.
|05/17/2018 - 7:28pm||Five Thirty Eight blog||
Looked at this exact thing last year:
ND is #1 on this list of most overrated teams, and Michigan checks in at #12.
This is comparing the preseason versus the postseason AP poll.
|04/06/2018 - 12:23am||Fack.||
I can't believe the last time Michigan won a Championship was in 1998.
At least we know that Pearson is a hell of a coach, and things look really good for next year.
Next year. Sigh.
|04/02/2018 - 11:19pm||It was a good run - had a ton of fun watching it this season||
Hate to see it end like this, but still proud of them.
Going to miss the seniors next year, and maybe Mo, too, but the future is bright for Michigan.
Frozen Four up next - Go Blue!
|04/02/2018 - 10:51pm||The refs aren't helping us, but if they can't hit a single||
3-pointer, it doesn't matter what Villanova does or doesn't do or what the refs call.
Michigan can't buy a basket right now.
|04/02/2018 - 10:44pm||Villanova excels at diving to get the foul calls||
We need to get better at that, apparently.
|04/02/2018 - 10:36pm||These refs are terrible||
all the fouls are one-way. That was a terrible foul call.
|04/02/2018 - 9:54pm||Michigan doesn't get that foul call||
with the body, but Villanova does every time.
|03/31/2018 - 7:38pm||Charles Fucking Barkley||
Someone needs to pay him to never pick Michigan ever again.
|03/31/2018 - 7:30pm||Right now the offense needs to be geared to getting||
the ball either to Wagner or Matthews on cuts or screens.
They are the only two hitting shots right now. If Michigan could get one person to start hitting threes, that would open up the lane to easier drives without multiple defenders clogging the lane.
Still in this one - need to start putting up some points!
|03/31/2018 - 7:25pm||Wagner came to play||
he is better than everyone on Loyola - needs some help from someone else though.
Wide open looks aren't falling.
|03/31/2018 - 7:10pm||They've done it before||
but 9-31 and 2-13 is a quick way to get sent home.
I think they can shoot the lights out in the second half in front of their bench. Get some energy and get some points!
|03/31/2018 - 7:04pm||Michigan has missed a ton of wide open||
shots from inside and out.
I mean, I guess you can credit that to Loyola's defense somehow for making Michigan miss wide-open looks. I hope Michigan can turn this around playing in front of their own bench the second half. Hit half of the shots in the second half, and Michigan wins running away.
I really don't want Michigan's season to end as a stepping stone to the Sister Jean Championship story...
|03/31/2018 - 6:53pm||Didn't say we looked good||
Just saying that Loyola is not that good.
Open looks aren't going, too many turnovers just from careless passes.
|03/31/2018 - 6:47pm||Loyola starting to get some confidence||
Michigan needs to hit some shots - use the backboard or something.
Everyone is all over Loyola nuts and they aren't that good.
Wagner is the only one who came to play today.
|03/31/2018 - 6:45pm||This is pretty ugly||
shooters can't shoot right now. They need to snap out of this funk
And start hitting some shots!
|03/31/2018 - 9:15am||Let's Go Blue!||
The next few hours will feel like an eternity, but I'm ready for gametime!
|03/28/2018 - 3:19pm||Cool story, bro.||
I get what they are trying to say, I just think the way they chose to make the point is a great example of casual racism. The whole basis of why that video even exists is pretty damning in itself, and that has nothing to do with being PC or however you want to explain it away. Not being racist isn't being PC, it's being a decent human being. When I see that video, that's what it reminds me of, because that's why it exists.
I guess it's awesome that it makes some secondary point that the some people are gullible and will read or print anything (har har), but marginalizing an actual issue to make a pithy point is an excellent example of what I'm talking about.
And to the guy that says to observe the difference between something directed towards Asians and something completely unrelated - that's the whole gist of covert or casual racism. As if it's okay because you aren't making fun of Asians directly - you are using them to make fun of something else.
Too deep for a message board - I get it. I usually never delve into social issues here, and will go back to not doing so, but man, does it make me view a large marjority here with a different lens.
All good, off the soapbox, back to the usual.
|03/28/2018 - 7:40am||The responses in this thread||
Are the perfect examples of casual/covert racism.
|03/28/2018 - 12:07am||I guess casual racism||
Toward Asians is still acceptable these days.
Downvotes for you all.
And Magnus - you just lost a reader a past donater to your blog.
|03/25/2018 - 6:04pm||Michigan looks tired this period||
They don't have the same fire as they did at the start of the second period. BU looks faster and has more energy right now.
That turnover was terrible. Hung Lavigne out to dry.
|03/24/2018 - 11:29pm||Duncan Robinson finished with 7 points||
I think once Hamiliton saw that he had more than six points, he knew the game was over!
|03/24/2018 - 10:51pm||These refs are BS||
honestly - FSU initiates contact and is wild, but somehow, Michigan is getting called for all the fouls.
These are really bad calls on any measure.
|03/24/2018 - 10:45pm||That was goal tending, first of all||
and the FSU player barrelled out of control into Wagner. If that's not a charge, then nothing about that call makes any sense any more.
|03/24/2018 - 10:21pm||FSU hasn't had a foul called on them in the second half||
seems like the refs have swallowed their whistles for FSU to even up the calls.
|03/24/2018 - 9:55pm||Maybe when all those idiots picked Michigan State||
to win it all, they really meant Michigan...
|03/24/2018 - 9:43pm||I really hate the color guy||
he is so all over FSU's nuts, it's a little excessive.
|03/24/2018 - 9:26pm||Michigan is going to have to play more physical||
The refs are going to let the rough stuff play and call the ticky-tack fouls.
Gotta be able to take the body contact.
|03/24/2018 - 9:06pm||FSU is a turnover machine||
Michigan needs to take advantage of the wasted possessions.
Looks like Matthews is finding his range in the Tournament - finally!
|03/24/2018 - 9:02pm||They need to start crashing the boards again||
on the 3-pt attempts. Get some second chance points and make FSU work on the defensive side.
|03/24/2018 - 9:00pm||I say keep the pressure on||
FSU has only hit 1-5 so far, and they already have 4 fouls. They seem rattled.
|03/24/2018 - 6:39pm||A little luck with the ricochet off Primeau's stick||
but I'll take it.
2-1 good guys, Go Blue!!
|03/22/2018 - 9:25pm||So much for Starks declaring himself||
2-11 from the field so far, with 5 TO and only 1 assist.
He got Z'ed!
|03/18/2018 - 12:22am||POOLE IS ALL THE SWAG!!!||
THE OVERDOSE OF SWAG!!!
GO MOTHERFUCKING BLUE!!
|03/18/2018 - 12:20am||HOLY HOLY SHIT||
THE THREE IS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDD!!!!
|03/18/2018 - 12:15am||Wow - missed so many shots||
Finish just a couple of those and it's over. Tough end to a great season.
Was hoping they would be shooting as well as they have during the Big Ten Tournament - they would be running away with this one.
|03/18/2018 - 12:10am||Wow - those last two calls||
were bad - those weren't fouls at all.
Also, not having Robinson here really hurts when they need a 3.
|03/16/2018 - 12:39am||#24 looks like Jim Carrey and Napoleon Dynamite||
had a love child.
|03/16/2018 - 12:27am||Need to hit the free throws||
Montana is going to start fouling if Michigan can't hit them.
|03/16/2018 - 12:24am||Definitely glad we got the high seed||
and are working off the rust against a terrible team.
Hopefully they can get back to playing well, especially since they will be playing a fast guard in Grey and Houston on Saturday.
|03/16/2018 - 12:05am||I think part of it is the late start time||
It's so much harder to concentrate late in the evening, in a different time zone. You have to figure that both teams are both used to playing much earlier in the afternoon. The energy level must be pretty low tight now.
|03/16/2018 - 12:02am||This is an ugly performance by everyone||
Both teams look out of sync, and the refs are kind of not good, either. Even the shot clocks can't keep their sh!t together tonight.
|03/15/2018 - 10:55pm||Teske surprises me with his quickness||
he has really good hands and moves well to the baketball without the ball.
|03/15/2018 - 10:45pm||I guess taking 11 days off between games isn't a good idea||
Looking at you, Jim Delany.
|03/15/2018 - 10:35pm||They definitely look a little rusty and out of sync on offense.||
Somehow, Montana's "active hands" are just great defense, but Michigan's are fouls.
Hit the shots, and it won't matter, though.
|03/15/2018 - 10:04pm||ESPN says 10:26 tip time||
Let's Go Blue!
|03/15/2018 - 10:02pm||That NCAA commercial||
was very angry, for some reason.
|02/21/2018 - 9:07pm||These announcers||
are terrible - they don't know what is actually going on in the game.
|02/21/2018 - 8:41pm||These refs||
are pretty terrible.
|02/16/2018 - 9:51pm||Have him stand by the net. hold his stick up by his shoulder||
where he hit the puck, and see if his stick is above the net.
