03/01/2018 - 6:32pm MAAR caught the ball after it

MAAR caught the ball after it went through, stepped out of bounds, and handed it off to Z out of bounds. The ref started counting when MAAR had the ball and went out, which is the correct call. You are allowed to pass to another player behind the baseline after a made basket, and the inbounds clock keeps running. I was always coached to pass the ball to the ref before looking up, which gaurantees the inbounds clock resetting. I have a feeling Beilein won't let that happen again.

05/19/2014 - 7:32pm It's a date set by the NCAA

It's a date set by the NCAA as the first day you can officially give offers. Most colleges don't care and give offers before then, but Beilein always waits until the date before he officially offers a prospect.

05/02/2014 - 9:15am I think it just depends. I

I think it just depends. I took Calc BC and got a 5 on the AP test, but when I started at Michigan in Fall 2008 I went into Math 256. If I remember correctly I could've gone into Calc 3 but because it was honors applied and because I wanted to start off with a solid GPA I chose Calc 2. I don't think there's a standard procedure for which class you have to go into and both calc 2 and 3 are options.

04/24/2014 - 6:12pm He said had the tools not has. Obviously he can

He said had the tools not has. Obviously he can and did play 4, it's just not a good fit of he's playing there 20-30 mins a game.

(We're not at full strength when our all-American center is in a suit on the sidelines. Just because we don't whine about it doesn't mean we don't have injuries)

Zack Novak was in the b school too

01/16/2014 - 2:59pm Your day by day countdown of

Your day by day countdown of important players before the season starts is probably my favorite Michigan football blogging series out there. Well I guess aside from UFRs.

01/09/2014 - 11:33am Good to see the recruits seem

Good to see the recruits seem to be reacting to it positively, any chance you could ask some more of the committed players though? It seems like they are the ones who really have had the opportunity to develop a relationship with Borges, I'm curious what their thoughts are.

12/20/2013 - 1:49pm #20

#20 is Torii Hunter going over the wall in the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox too.

10/12/2013 - 9:45pm Scott tenorman of the week?!

Scott tenorman of the week?! Brian put me in twis!! Hi Mom!

10/12/2013 - 9:40pm We did run inverted veers in

We did run inverted veers in the 4q and they got blown up. I can't believe we didn't run a qb draw in overtime, we were getting at least 7 yards every time with it

08/13/2013 - 12:29pm And the second graph's Y-axis

And the second graph's Y-axis should be "% of total carries" or something like that. Good info though.

08/09/2013 - 1:42pm Fun Fact

Trey Burke's given name is actually Alfonso Clark Burke III, so I guess really we should be gunning for Alfonso Burke IV, or Quad Burke if he rolls that way.

04/14/2013 - 1:53pm I'm pretty sure Brundidge was

I'm pretty sure Brundidge was the higher ranked recruit by (high 3* vs middle 4*) by all sites and he was in the class earlier than Burke. I believe we only went after Burke once Darius Morris went pro, which is why people thought Burke would be more important, a true PG vs a PG/SG tweener on a team with no point guards.

04/10/2013 - 12:18pm I would put McGary and GR3 at

I would put McGary and GR3 at the exact same odds for leaving. They're best friends and similar pro prospects, they're probably talking all day to each other about what to do, and I wouldn't be surprised if that all adds up to them making the same decision.

03/27/2013 - 9:21am Unfortunate but not

Unfortunate but not surprising. Hopefully Trouba sticks around.

03/25/2013 - 5:07pm Haha, I never noticed Tim and

Haha, I never noticed Tim and Trey jumping simultaneously on GRIII's dunk. Also about half the bench at the exact same time as them, shit I probably jumped at that moment too, I think you nailed it calling it a Pavlonian response.

03/25/2013 - 1:25pm Yup, we got the same

Yup, we got the same heritage. If you haven't heard about the FORCE conference it's a very well put together conference my family and I have been to a couple times. It really does a great job at objectively going over the facts of BRCA and the best ways of going about dealing with the mutation. It's specifically intended for women but it's pretty empowering from a male's perspective too, here's a link to the website if you're interested: http://www.facingourrisk.org/. My prayers go out to you and your family, I know this can be a difficult thing to deal with. 

03/25/2013 - 11:33am I apologize if this is too

I apologize if this is too personal, but is it BRCA? We have it in my family, luckily my sisters found out about it when they were young.

03/22/2013 - 3:20pm Also Levert has shown a

Also Levert has shown a tendency to get rattled in big games. Playing VCU's press in the NCAA tournament is a pretty easy way to get rattled. I'm going to be pretty nervous if Caris is bringing the ball up against heavy man pressure. I would definitely rather see Hardaway/Spike out there.

03/21/2013 - 9:12pm Does anybody know why Morgan

Does anybody know why Morgan didn't make an appearance tonight?

02/22/2013 - 9:59am Not sure if this is what he's

Not sure if this is what he's talking about, but by my calculations the gazelle only has to run faster than the slowest gazelle to not get eaten.

02/06/2013 - 12:09am I like the way you think.

I like the way you think.

02/06/2013 - 12:08am Don't forget the phantom foul

Don't forget the phantom foul on Burke when Thomas took that shot from the free throw line and airballed.... even though noone touched him. That's 7 for the buckeyes plus the borderline flagrant in overtime.

02/05/2013 - 11:53pm Trey Burke! Tim Hardaway Jr!

Trey Burke! Tim Hardaway Jr! Mitch McGary! GO BLUE!!

12/05/2012 - 2:02pm McGary wasn't hyped as a HS

McGary wasn't hyped as a HS recruit I thought, he wasn't ranked #2 in the nation until he was out of high school and into his year of prep school.

11/27/2012 - 8:18pm I think Beilein is starting

I think Beilein is starting Vogrich just to give a nod to the senior. Starting lineups really don't matter as much in basketball, it's common to start a Senior over a Freshman early in the season just to respect the 4/5 years the senior has put in. Who Beilein plays to close the game tells more about what he thinks about his players than who he plays to start

11/27/2012 - 8:08pm Are you trying to say

Are you trying to say Stauskus is a better defender than Vogrich? I think we have a better team with Stauskus on the floor but I think Stauskus has a ways to go on the defensive end.

11/23/2012 - 5:30pm His defense really leaves a

His defense really leaves a lot to be desired but got damn is he a weapon on offense

11/13/2012 - 9:56pm Man to man pressure is

Man to man pressure is different then zone pressure. The whole reason for zone pressure is to try to get the opponent to dribble into a trap, which is why I don't agree with the reasoning of we need our best dribblers out there, I think it's more important to have shooters who will be open when someone kicks out from a trap. If they're pressing in man, I agree 100% you want dribblers.  I'm not saying you're wrong or I'm right, that's just my basketball 2 cents. 

11/13/2012 - 9:29pm You put in shooters against a

You put in shooters against a zone trap, I think putting in Hardaway and Stauskus is the right call. You aren't supposed to dribble through a zone, you pass and cut until you find an open shot.

11/13/2012 - 9:26pm This is the first time a

This is the first time a young team is playing a trap zone, I wouldn't call them struggling a bit a loss of focus and intensity.

09/23/2012 - 10:52am Still on the mobile site

My favorite quote was "you guys will never understand the pain I feel right now" as if we didn't watch the exact same game

09/23/2012 - 10:49am On the bright side, I think

On the bright side, I think Brian has found his scott tenorman for the week!

09/22/2012 - 11:11pm Agreed, I think Borges and

Agreed, I think Borges and mattison both called pretty good games tonight. I think if v smith could've hit dileo instead of throwing the pick we would've had a completely different ballgame

09/22/2012 - 11:09pm Pretty sure he means groomed

Pretty sure he means groomed for the nfl as a running back

07/01/2012 - 3:06pm Yup

ESPN2 is frozen too, not exactly great timing there WWL

06/26/2012 - 11:59am It normally blows people's mind when they find this out, but..

Roughly half of men wipe sitting down and the other half wipe standing up. I once polled my fraternity and I'm pretty sure the final number was 37 to 35 sitting down.

02/20/2012 - 10:30am I don't think he's actually

I don't think he's actually planning on playing basketball for UM, at least I haven't seen that written anywhere. But if he did, then yes, the scholarship would only count for football

02/19/2012 - 12:08pm Denard, Tree, Kenny Demens,

Denard, Tree, Kenny Demens, and what looked like at least 3-4 others were all there, I couldn't tell from the other side of the student section though. The football team supports the basketball team in force

02/18/2012 - 12:35pm I was in the crowd, we were

I was in the crowd, we were way more active during the espnu taping, I think we kind of ran out of energy for the show on espn. I guess staying up all night will do that to you. The latest anyone who was in the bleachers showed up was around 4am

02/15/2012 - 7:45pm Maize Rage has talked about

Maize Rage has talked about tailgating as early as 2 am, we'll see how that holds up after Friday night. I'm planning on waking up around 4, same time I started the OSU football tailgate.

01/31/2012 - 3:01pm I actually think a lot of the

I actually think a lot of the fun in participating in a football blog is guessing at what's going to happen in the future. I know I talk about it all the time with my friends. I don't see why it would be a problem to do it on mgoblog too.
