Dear lord, who gives a shit? It's been 20 years and both parties are getting over their grievances. Whether you like it or not, Bullock, CWebb, and the Fab Five are part of Michigan's family and you don't get to decide who is and who isn't a part of the Michigan legacy. I mean, who the fuck are you to ask for remorse from players who brought joy and excitement to thousands of fans? How convenient that we lavish athletes with praise for their performances on the field but as soon as they stumble, we're the first turn our backs on them and pretend they don't exist. Especially, you know, after 20 bloody years. It doesn't matter if you or any of the other geriatrics on this board can't accept these 'clowns', because Beillein has endorsed them and brought them back to campus to talk with the team. I'm just glad Beilein and his staff don't take after some of the ornery, grudge-holding troglodytes that form a part of the Michigan fanbase.
|10/28/2014 - 8:24pm||What the fuck are you talking||
What the fuck are you talking about, man? Who, aside from Jake Ryan and perhaps Frank Clark has shown any sort of growth here in the past 4 years?
|10/25/2014 - 7:42pm||'most of these guys are||
'most of these guys are totally unlikeable off the field as well.'
What a fucking lame excuse to go and turn on your players. Criticise the players and the coaching staff for their performances all you want, but don't try to justify further vitriol by saying 'most' of these guys are unlikable people. Every team in the nation has, at least, a handful of players suspended for serious offenses. If we had beaten State, this bullshit about the flaws of their moral character wouldn't have even popped in your mind.

Just imagine if we were to win 2 games in a row...... some people might start calingl for a lifetime contract for Brady.
|10/06/2014 - 12:25pm||What do you expect?||
When a newly appointed coach says things like 'the goal is to win B1G championships' and that National Championships are not worth setting goals for, you get the sense that Michigan's ambitions don't quite align with those of the more recently succesfful, elite, Southern programs.
|10/03/2014 - 2:39am||Nevermind top 2, when was the||
Nevermind top 2, when was the last time we beat a top 25 team? Our biggest wins in the past 4 years are against 6-6 OSU, 6-6 MSU, 8-4 Nebraska, 8-4 Notre Dame, and 11-3 Virginia tech team that nobody thought deserved to be in the sugar bowl.
|07/05/2013 - 4:34pm||Juwan Howard as next Head coach||
Just stop, I can't handle that. That would be too amazing to experience, and you're just setting me up for dissappointment and heart break, man.

"For those of us who watched this program spiral into decline as a result of this scandal, it's about a little more than just Webber's skill on the basketball court."
You must not have been watching very closely because it's completely facetious to say that our program declined because of Weber. Our program declined because of our Atheltic department's refusal to invest in its facilities and hire competent coaches. I mean, Ellerbe won a Big ten tournament during the beginning of his term and thereafter gave us terrible seasons. This was even BEFORE we had any sanctions whatsoever. And even then, the only meaningful sanction that we had imposed on us was a grand total of 1 scholarship reduction a year. Stop using false arguments to support your bias against the fab five
|04/04/2013 - 1:52am||The fact that our fanbase||
is not completely comprised of geriatric pedants like you might have something to do with it.
|04/02/2013 - 2:35pm||Please,||
don't. I know a lot of people on this board are Lions fans, but can we ALL just make sure Denard stays the fuck away from the Lions instead of actually urging them to sign him? He needs to go to a team that will nurture him under an innovative Offensive Coordinator, not the massive cesspool that is that shitty-ass club. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy, and certainly not Denard.
|04/01/2013 - 12:36am||As far as I'm concerned,||
whoever hates Jalen Rose and the Fab Five hates Michigan, and is most likely a Dookie.

on this board is at full blast, and it takes a special brand of immaturity to involve politics into a discussion that doesn't need it. If you can tell who's liberal and who's conservative from just reading posts, you need to shut this shit down.
|03/18/2013 - 8:15pm||I expected to be neg blasted to the depths of Ohio||
but for me, Lloyd >Bo. Lloyd was my "generation", I witnessed the emotional moment in which he was hoisted up in his final game during my freshman season. Lloyd won the first national championship for Michigan in the past 70 years. Bo won 2/10 Rose Bowls, nevermind a National Championship. I also prefer Lloyd's grandfatherly demenour to Bo's hard ass footbaw coach persona.
|03/17/2013 - 1:25pm||LOL||
What a bunch of fair weather fans in here. Seriously? A fucking practice game over Michigan's seeding? It's nice to see such amazing support when we start sucking.
|03/16/2013 - 4:04pm||Uh||
Are you talking about the loss to PSU or the 25 point beatdown by Michigan State?
I wonder what your response will be when we get bounced off the second round of the tourney, again.
|03/15/2013 - 6:44pm||Some of us||
Some of us, abeith a minority, like Michigan's basketball team more than the football team. So when someone straight up dismisses a particular aspect of the bball team;s failures by saying that football is just around the corner, it can be seen as derisive to those of who have been following basketball with unbroken attention.
|03/11/2013 - 3:35pm||It's ridiculous to say that||
It's ridiculous to say that we'd be better off without our and possibly the nation's best player, but I think it might be a possibility. I can see what you're saying, they might actually be a better team next year. Of course, this all depends on if anyone else aside from Trey Burke decides to leave.
|03/11/2013 - 3:28pm||Thanks to the coaches and players||
and all that. John Beillein is a great coach who has built this program brick by brick, what he has managed to do with an almost perennial bottom feeder in the past 20 years is nothing short of remarkable.
But how the hell are we an "elite" program right now? Why don't we wait until we have some decent level of success in the Tournament before we call ourselves elite again. Not to call you out or anything but are you also one of those people who bitches about the spoiled nature of our fanbase and complains about their lack of perspective while at the same time raising the same expectations you later claim to be unrealistic?
|03/11/2013 - 1:43am||Eh||
I don't hate Bo Ryan, don't see any reason to aside from his teams playing shitty basketball.
Don't hate Izzo, at all. Met him once, and he's pure class and not a single person I know who has met him has a single bad thing to say about him. And it's hard not to respect how good of a coach he is. I guess the only bad thing about him is that he coaches MSU and tries to argue/yell about calls, but which coach (aside from Beillein) doesn't do that?
Honestly, don't hate Crean either. He seems like a guy who wears his heart on his sleeve and his players seem to adore him. He yelled at one of our coaches for 'trying to ruin the program'. To me, that actually kind of shows how much passion he has for his team.
Matta? Aside from the fact he looks like the son of Satan and Gene Hackman, he's a really good coach who handles himself with class publically.
I know my opinion isn't very popular here but the word 'hate' gets thrown around this board too much. I really can't think of any coach (in any sport) who makes me want to waste my energy hating. Dantonio, Jim Harbaugh, SAF? Meh, mild dislike Yeah, I hate OSU, MSU, and ND but I can't help but respect a lot of the coaches in the conference.
I've been on mgoblog a long time but one of the few things that bothers me about the boards is the general lack of respect for any team and anyone associated with any team that is not Michigan. I mean, I love my alma mater but why do we have to shit on everybody here?
|03/10/2013 - 11:29pm||Uh...||
I'm sure many people around the country can name you the final four teams (or even Elite Eight teams) of the past couple of years over the B1G champions. I'm now even more perplexed; was the purpose of your first sentence to tell me that the Big10 championship is more presigious than a Final four berth? Because that is highly debateable.
And you're joking if you think that a program like Kansas would give half a fuck if Bill Self had won all those Big12 championships but at the same time had crashed out of the NCAA tournament on the first weekend. Or do you think that Duke considered last year a sucess because they won the ACC championship, regardless of the fact that they lost in the second round of the tournament due to a 'crapshoot' Lehigh performance?
Now, I'm not saying we're at the level of Duke and Kansas nor am I saying that conference championships are usless. But, unless you're new to college basketball and just came over from football, you have to admit that the tournament is the 'meat' of the college basketball season.
" but the strongest team does not win it more often than not."
Like when? What year did you look at the ncaa champion and consider them not worty of that title?
" It's far more of a crapshoot than the National Title for football."
What the balls?
"The Big Ten title gets us a banner. Without that, it's not likely we'll be hanging one. "
You do realize that a Final Four berth gets us a banner, right?
|03/10/2013 - 10:54pm||Are you serious?||
The conference championship is great and all but success in the NCAA tournament, in college basketball at least, is what distinguishes coaches, players, and teams in the history books. This isn't football, the tourney is not just a glorified bowl game. It's about as much of a 'crapshoot' as any sporting event and the strongest team, more often than not, ends up winning the entire damn thing.
|03/10/2013 - 8:56pm||I'd welcome a 40 point||
I'd welcome a 40 point drubbing Penn State twice over if it meant we'd go to the final four.
|03/07/2013 - 9:04pm||Love your profile pic||
|02/19/2013 - 9:10pm||Yeah....||
Do me a favor and stop blowing sunshine up my ass, because you're clearly not good at it. We've had, like, 3 games on neutral courts.
|02/14/2013 - 2:03pm||We're a very good team.||
We're a very good team. Elite? Dunno about that, man. We have too many weaknesses that extend beyond just mental toughness to be considered an elite team. Michigan has an extremely skilled bunch of players but they lack the size and athleticism of the usuals such as Florida, Duke , MSU, Kansas. We lack an inside game both defensively and offensively and our perimiter defending is just unpleasant (to say the least). Again, they are good enough to surpise fans and make a deep run in the tourney but we are also one of those teams that could easily be upset in the early rounds. It all comes down to momentum and matchups.
|02/14/2013 - 1:32pm||I think now that my||
I think now that my expectations are lowered for this team, for some reason or another I am more excited about them. Let's face it, people were hyping us up to high heaven and it's simply the case that we are not an elite team. The way I see it is: we have the tools to be a dark horse contender and make a deep run in the tourney. If it it doesn't happen, no biggie. I'm just excited to see how this enigma of a team develops and rounds out the season. In other words, life is too short to have expectations in sports.
|01/03/2013 - 3:16pm||One national championship in||
One national championship in 10-15 years is good enough for me. But considering the past 70 years of Michigan football, that's too much to ask for.
|12/20/2012 - 11:23pm||Agreed||
My friend ate a Marijuana once and gained 20 pounds. Shit kills, yo.
|12/20/2012 - 11:16pm||The fact that you've been up||
The fact that you've been up voted to '3' for calling someone a pothead because they think a particular rule or law is ridiculous just goes to show the level of obtuse thinking of some users on this site.
|12/20/2012 - 5:02pm||Wait, are you serious?||
Is the last part of your post true? I would be furious if it is, and would have no trouble adopting Dave Brandon-hate as my day time job.
|11/25/2012 - 2:08am||I'm glad we're taking solace in Alabama's National titles||
Because only then would we forget that we have 1 NC in the past 70 years playing "manball".
We aren't Alabama. Michigan is in the talent barren area that is the midwest so we will never recruit as well as they do.
The Michigan of today should not be held to the same ethos as the Michigan of the 1970s, 1980s, or even 1990s. We cannot shoehorn ourselves into a particular style of play but rather employ whatever scheme is necessary to win, be it "manball" or "basketball on grass".
|11/20/2012 - 6:49pm||What?||
Are you serious, brah?
Research is what seperates the Harvard's and MIT's of the world from the likes of Notre Dame. In fact, the joke is that the better your school is at teaching undergrads the more likely it is that your professors are not the best in their field. Not saying I think this "joke" should prove true, but that's just the way things seem to work.
|11/20/2012 - 6:07pm||You know,||
Caltech is a pretty decent school for engineering. I guess.
Cal? Meh, nothing compared to the likes of MSU and Iowa. They just don't fit academically.
|11/14/2012 - 6:45pm||"Imaginary friends"||
Gee, thanks dude. Are you replying to me, by the way? If you are, you need to go take your reading comprehension skills and shoot them in a back-alley somewhere because there is absolutey no way you could have derived from my post that I don't appreciate Denard. I love Denard and seeing as I witnessed his epic first play in freshman year, he is my favorite player of all time.
And even if I didn't there's no reason to be an asshat without any provocation, some people on this blog need to chill the fuck out.
|11/14/2012 - 3:55pm||It pains me to say this,||
but this isn't true. Denard's got a lot of haters amongst our fanbase. To watch so many Michigan fans turn on him at the slightest instance of a mistake these past 3 years has been eye-opening. I think many of us here are living in a bubble if we think he's any where near as loved as even Mike Martin or Brandon Graham.
|10/26/2012 - 12:05am||You have to be pretty||
You have to be pretty unfortunate or just plain retarded to get caught. You actually sound like someone who has never even known a single person who has tried weed never mind smoked regularly.

I'm not sure who you're talking to either, but I think most people in academia would agree with my statement but whatever. I'll leave it at that.
|10/05/2012 - 1:19pm||UC Berkeley is the most overrated school in the world||
I've seen you make this statement time and time again (Don't ask me how I remember). Why do you say this, do you have something against Cal? If anything, if you go by USNews rankings, they might just the single most underranked school on there. You ask anyone around the world and they will not only recognize them but will have a much higher regard for them than several schools that are supposedly superior to them (again, according to USNews) such as Northwestern, Johns Hopkins, Notre Dame, Dartmouth, Duke, Brown, Cornell. A school doesn't win over 70 Nobel prizes by being overrated.
Why do you think they're overrated again?
