01/23/2019 - 6:45am Unfortunately, shooting…

Unfortunately, shooting slumps can be contagious among a team.  When it happens, even easy shots don't go in.  Teske seems to be the only one unaffected so far.  Maybe he took the antidote.  Hopefully the team gets over it quickly.

01/22/2019 - 7:51pm Michigan is in a classic…

Michigan is in a classic team shooting slump.  That's it.  It's not the defense.  We just stopped being able to hit outside shots.  They have to work their way out of it.   Or struggle games like this will continue.  

01/21/2019 - 6:44am Going iso against Wisconsin…

Going iso against Wisconsin didn't cost us the game IMO.  We just couldn't hit our outside shots.  Other than Poole, we don't have a guy who hits them consistently enough.  That's our biggest weakness, more so than FT shooting.

01/19/2019 - 4:23pm It's hard to win a Big Ten…

It's hard to win a Big Ten game against a solid opponent, especially on the road when two key scorers like Matthews and Brazdeikis combine for 5 points.  I can forgive Iggy as a freshman for having a bad game.  But Matthews as a senior needs to help pull the team up in games like this.  He looked too inactive much of the time on offense, just standing around on the perimeter.  His quickness and athletic ability driving the ball was greatly missed today.  I don't think Wisconsin is that great.  But they seem to have it in for Michigan in that Trohl Center.

One of my favorite movie scenes of all time.

Whatever happend to MGoUser Yoda?  Some of the Yoda-speak was funny - until it wasn't.  

01/17/2019 - 9:42am I thought Plocki said the…

I thought Plocki said the right things in her interview this morning and came across well despite the circumstances surrounding the decision.  She regretted the decision and apologized for it.  I think that's what a leader does in situations like this.  All of us sometimes make poor decisions in our jobs or everyday lives.  The important thing is owning up to them, fixing them as best as possible, and not letting them take on a life of their own by moving on.  Yes, Manuel did not handle this well.  He should have stuck with his first decision.  And then not made things worse by trying to keep it low key.  Overall, though, I'm glad the University eventually fixed it and it will likely be a good lesson for those involved.   

01/16/2019 - 11:59am Yes, that's certainly true. …

Yes, that's certainly true.  But, the MSU BOT, like many of their past behaviors, was ignoring a huge problem hoping it would just go away rather than deal with it.  That's one of the reasons they got into the huge Nassar problem to begin with.  Sparties will be Sparties.

Certainly, LZ was one of the great bands, but best ever?  No, not really.  Most overplayed on the radio?  I'd vote yes on that one.  I can't listen to most of their songs just because I'm so tired of listening to them.  Stairway to Heaven however, is an exception.  I never seem to get tired of it.  I think it's easily one of the iconic songs of rock and roll history.  

01/12/2019 - 5:33pm Really, there was about a 5…

Really, there was about a 5 or 6 year span right around 1969 that was the absolute golden age of Rock and Roll.  An unbelievable amount of innovative, classic songs and groups had their origin around then.  

01/09/2019 - 4:50pm I think anywhere in the blue…

I think anywhere in the blue seats are best, if you can swing the cost.  The experience is so much better than sitting in maize seats above.  Of course now that it's the Big Ten season, prices are not going to be cheap for any of the games.  

01/08/2019 - 6:02pm I'd rather see Hill…

I'd rather see Hill returning kicks.  Thomas was not so good in that area.  

01/08/2019 - 5:59pm Agree.   Mr. Rogers needs to…

Agree.   Mr. Rogers needs to adjust his expectations if he's interested in attending a top tier program like Michigan and the other ones on his list.  Being confident is one thing.  But he's better off coming into one of those programs knowing there are damned good players ahead of him who are older, more experienced, and have more time in a college S&C program than he does.  On the OL especially, it's very hard to break into the starting lineup as a freshman unless the team you're on is really depleted.  

01/08/2019 - 1:29pm I'd want a rugged inside…

I'd want a rugged inside rebounder and defender, who can also score.  Loy Vaught comes to mind, or of course Webber or Tarpley.  Michigan has been torched in many games this year by athletic, inside players who are too quick and jump too high for Teske/Davis.

You might want to run that last sentence through a grammar checker.  

01/07/2019 - 8:54pm Ha ha ha.  I was really…

Ha ha ha.  I was really hoping for f-ing O'Neill too.  A meteor or huge sinkhole swalliwing up both sidelines would both work.

01/07/2019 - 6:19pm Can you just enjoy the…

Can you just enjoy the golden era of Michigan basketball while we're still in it, and just live in the moment?  Stop this pointless wondering about something in the future none of us can control.  

01/07/2019 - 3:14pm I agree this is the most…

I agree this is the most likely rationale for what just happened.  Brown wanted to make a change (maybe as one condition for him staying here) and Mattison was not renewed.  I think Michigan will end up better off after this change, overall.  Getting a younger, experienced guy in the job who can recruit well is a gain.   But yeah, I don't get it either, especially from Ohio State's perspective.  The only thing that makes sense at all is their ongoing petty, small-minded desire to get us any way they can.  Spending that much money on a 70 year old coach when they have other better options seems like a stupid way to get us though.  

01/07/2019 - 1:55pm Agree.  This will give…

Agree.  This will give Michigan a chance to find a new, smart, younger guy to replace him, who might be able to get our d-line to a higher level.  This year in big games when it counted, the d-line (outside of Winovich and maybe Paye) didn't get the job done.  Not nearly enough push or penetration.  (No rated X comments below please)

01/07/2019 - 1:52pm No shit.  Boren set the…

No shit.  Boren set the standard for being a worthless traitor.  

01/06/2019 - 8:32pm Who is that tall, bald ref? …

Who is that tall, bald ref?  We keep getting him for all of our games it seems.

Kyle Ford commitment coming up.  I'll eat a bag of....  no better not.  

01/05/2019 - 2:14pm With a name like that, he…

With a name like that, he better be.  Just sayin.  

01/04/2019 - 7:56am Great players at Michigan…

Great players at Michigan they were. But if they get in, certainly Rick Leach deserves it as well.  I can't fathom how he hasn't been inducted yet.  

01/02/2019 - 12:39pm No is the incredibly obvious…

No is the incredibly obvious answer.  But I WOULD like to us put a better effort into the game to try and win it.  If some of the players played it "like it was a meaningless game", then it's likely the coaches sent them that message either directly or indirectly.  They could have done that by using the same generic, bland gameplan that got us run out of the Horseshoe.  The players aren't dumb.  Look at other teams who seemed to be excited about being there and played hard to win.  Penn State was down by 20 and almost came back to win it.  If Michigan did that and still came up short, I wouldn't be as a tenth as pissed as I am now about our effort in the game.  

01/02/2019 - 12:32pm I think he could have used…

I think he could have used another year to hone his pass catching skills.  But, maybe he's gotten some positive vibes from pro scouts and he figures another year of college ball won't be a good use of his time.  It's too bad we didn't get him more catches, but you can pretty much say that for all the receivers this year.  Thanks Zach and good luck to you!

01/01/2019 - 8:07pm You're either a troll or…

You're either a troll or never went to Michigan and don't know what you're talking about.  No comparison between the two schools academically.  

01/01/2019 - 8:04pm Simple.  OSU as a program,…

Simple.  OSU as a program, school, and state want to win football games more badly than Michigan does.  They will do whatever it takes to do that and Michigan won't.  They'll spend whatever amount of money on recruiting, facilities, and staff it takes.  They don't have the highest academic requirements for athletes, so they can get players in that Michigan passes on.  They will look the other way when their coaches commit fireable offenses.  It goes on and on.  If Michigan wants to be at that level, they have to make the total commitment to do whatever it takes.  I don't think the administration at Michigan will do that.  So, my advice is live with it.  

01/01/2019 - 4:28pm Yup.  When Michigan got…

Yup.  When Michigan got behind by that much the last two games, they fell apart.  I want to see a Michigan team play the bowl game like they really want to win it.

12/31/2018 - 8:18pm Nope.  Too much baggage.  

Nope.  Too much baggage.  

12/31/2018 - 11:14am I sure hope Warde Manuel…

I sure hope Warde Manuel demands better answers than these when he meets with Harbaugh to evaluate the season.  

12/30/2018 - 5:13pm Teske was clearly off his…

Teske was clearly off his game today.   Maybe he was under the weather, who knows.  He clearly wasn't playing as aggressive or with an attitude.  That's likely why Beilein gave so many minutes to Livers (and the fact Livers was having such a good game).  But I certainly wouldn't give up on him.  He's still playing much better than last year and will be a vital cog in the Wolverine machine for the rest of the season.  

12/30/2018 - 2:04pm Sure the players made…

Sure the players made mistakes.  But why does it keep happening in every big game?  Coaching is the core problem.  

12/30/2018 - 9:06am I think your post fucking…

I think your post fucking sucks.  Try adding something of value to the discussion instead.

12/30/2018 - 9:04am BS.  Stop blaming past…

BS.  Stop blaming past coaches for the OL failures or shortcomings of today.  Harbaugh will be starting his 5th year here, entirely with players he's recruited.  This year in particular, there are no more of these fictional excuses to hide behind.  Yesterday, that OL did not get good push or open holes pretty much all day.  Again, all Harbaugh recruited O-linemen.  

12/29/2018 - 4:00pm As long as everyone accepts…

As long as everyone accepts 3 losses per season, Harbaugh is fine.  But unless he makes some big changes, including in himself, that is what the ceiling is now.  

12/29/2018 - 3:52pm Bo didn't get blown out by…

Bo didn't get blown out by OSU or in bowl games at least.  These kind of losses are humiliating for the program and for all of us fans.  

12/29/2018 - 3:49pm It's been discussed…

It's been discussed previously, but Harbaugh is not the same coach or person right now, as when he came in here.  He's lost the fire and intensity on the sideline and seems unable to get the offense to where it needs to go.   It seems too hard to believe, but it's like he's now OK with losing 3 games per year if we win the other 10.  The old Harbaugh would never have let his talented team get blown out two games in a row.  I just don't get it.

12/29/2018 - 3:45pm Have to give the coaching a…

Have to give the coaching a big F in this one, even considering the personnel losses.  The offense, once again had little rhythm and bad playcalling at the worst times.  The clock management was also very bad - at the end of the first half, and blowing most of the game clock in the 4th quarter when down by 17 points.  When the players keep making bad plays in game after game, that's on the coaches - not the players.  The offensive line looked poorly led and inspired.  I'm very discouraged about this program as of right now.  I'm glad there's going to be 8 months before they have to play again.  It's going to take me at least that long to feel positive about the program.

12/29/2018 - 2:36pm Just no spark or intensity…

Just no spark or intensity from Michigan.  The fact it keeps happening is all on the coaching staff.  

12/29/2018 - 2:01pm We're only behind by 3 but…

We're only behind by 3 but it feels like Florida has most of the momentum.  If we get the ball in the hands of DPJ, Black, and Collins in the 2nd half, we can win.  But only if the defense doesn't cave.  A number of plays in the first half where Bush would have made a huge difference.

12/26/2018 - 2:05pm Maybe I saw you in the area…

Maybe I saw you in the area back then.  Andover '77 grad here.  Cranbrook was/is a great school.  I remember going there on a field trip and seeing an Egyptian mummy.  Are you kidding me?

12/22/2018 - 10:36am That's good to hear from…

That's good to hear from Coach H, especially considering the talent level of some of the other players in this class.  Once the current guards on this team graduate, we're going to need a couple really talented guys to step up.  Rumler sounds like a good candidate to be one of those guys.

12/21/2018 - 11:20am Welcome aboard Mr. Johnson. …

Welcome aboard Mr. Johnson.  Hopefully, we'll see some good things from JD this next season.  It looks like a situation where the coaches saw his potential and wisely got in early.  

12/21/2018 - 11:19am I think the coaches want to…

I think the coaches want to take a QB in every class, which I think is wise.  Plus we don't know if Shea is going to come back or go pro yet, AND if everyone else on the roster is coming back for sure.  Besides, Johnson is a 2020 prospect.  So, there's lots of time to see what happens between now and when he'd actually come in here.  

12/21/2018 - 11:00am I'm impressed with Johnson,…

I'm impressed with Johnson, overall.  I'm not sure of his arm strength, but he looks like he has very good touch lofting balls into the receiver.  I'll take accuracy over arm strength any day.  Running the ball, he reminds me of Devin Gardner somewhat.  Long strides that give him deceptive speed.  Looks like a great pickup.  My guess is Johnson will move up the rankings as more people find out about him.  

12/21/2018 - 6:31am I think I'm just going to…

I think I'm just going to Crouch near the Christmas tree today with a glass of bourbon and enjoy the season!

12/19/2018 - 2:38pm Don't sleep on Vansumeren…

Don't sleep on Vansumeren either.  He was an excellent H.S. receiver.  I can't wait to see him catching the ball out of the backfield or wherever they line him up.
