07/02/2018 - 6:23pm I think that people who don…

I think that people who don't agree with a certain viewpoint and don't have the same platform that can distribute a different viewpoint try so desperately hard to silence or "shout down," that information any way they can. Why someone would be so concerned what a random blog says, particularly if they don't agree with it is beyond me. Does it really bother you that much that someone has a different viewpoint than you? Does it bother you that Brian could be potentially reaching hundreds of thousands of impressionable minds with information that may change the way they think and could lead them to take action and potentially sway an election? 

The reality is, this is someone else's blog. He can do what he wants and say what he wants, even if it breaks the rules he set forth. You can not like it and think it's hypocritical, but really, there is nothing you can do about it. Why spend the energy arguing over posts you don't like, when there is so much other content here, waiting to be read?

 

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:

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/which-college-football-teams-are-a…

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!

Go Blue!

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!

Go Blue!!

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.

Go Blue!

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!

Go Blue!

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

"unguardable"

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!!!!

GO BLUE!!

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

after all.

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.
