I use Hulu Live instead of cable and it's fantastic for many reasons. First and most important in this case, you don't necessarily need power to watch because you can watch live TV on your phone, tablet, laptop, etc. 

Second, it's only $40/month and you get all the sports channels (ESPN's lineup, Fox's lineup, CBS', etc.) plus limited commercials for any series you watch on Hulu. 

Of course, if your power went out, you wouldn't be able to watch Hulu on a TV...But at least you would still have access to the game on another medium.

Here's some of the newer music I'm listening to. I'll try to focus on those that aren't as mainstream or obvious.

EDM: The Tech Thieves (Canadian Duo)

Rock: Ghost, The Score

Rap: Boogie

Pop: Quin XCII (From Michigan)

It would be nice if this team could channel their earlier road performances on the year for this one. Lately they can't seem to play well at all away from Crisler. Hopefully there's no foul trouble and Michigan can get by to set up what should be an awesome game against MSU.

Especially with Fisher, Glenn Rice, Terry Mills, and others from the 1989 squad in the building.

02/19/2019 - 12:57pm Yeah I would recommend to…

Yeah I would recommend to try and catch them away from Lakeland. It's a nice area, but little to do around it. Try to catch a game in a city closer to other things. As they always are, the Chic-Fil-A near the Lakeland Stadium was very busy

If it were decided right now, it would be Beilein. But yes, Painter and Gard are in the running depending on how the season finishes out.

The best part of the article was this picture of Coach Beilein from 1976, making him either 22 or 23 at the time.

It feels like Poole is due for another 20 point outburst. Hopefully he has one of those games where he can't miss.

02/08/2019 - 3:17pm I'm hoping Iggy uses his…

I'm hoping Iggy uses his previous performance against Wisconsin as motivation to go all out and smoke the Badgers tomorrow. And if he does, you can bet he'll get Freshman of the Week for the 5th time with how well he did against Rutgers.

02/08/2019 - 2:37pm I definitely agree on #2…

I definitely agree on #2. But if Trice is coming to guard Iggy, he can't flop every time because the refs will not call it every time. Iggy might get hit with a charge or two, but the B1G has noticeably decreased the number of charges called that Wisconsin draws.

And if Wisconsin decides to switch everything, I'm hoping Simpson is aggressive and it takes it right at Happ for a tough layup or his hook. 

If they put Happ on Iggy again, run some screens with him and Poole. Then you can get Poole going up against old man Happ and that should be a matchup you win.

02/08/2019 - 11:15am "It might not work as well…

"It might not work as well when Iggy's guarded by a quicker defender, better teams probably won't blow those switches, and defenses will prepare for it if Michigan runs it successfully often enough."

 

But to that point, Michigan has options no matter how this is defended. If they are like Rutgers and slow getting to Iggy, he can knock down the 3. But if it's a better team like Wisconsin this weekend who is really really good at preventing 3's, then this play will allow Iggy to do what he honestly does best. He can attack the hard closeout from the defender to get by and drive to the basket.

As has been pointed out by a lot of people, Iggy isn't the quickest and sometimes needs the advantage to get by players. Well, having him pop after a screen will force defenders to be off-balance running to guard him, opening up the drive to the lane where he is a great finisher and good at drawing fouls.

I'll be looking for Michigan to run this action against Wisconsin tomorrow for that very specific reason. Especially with Happ or Reuvers on him.

Salt Lake Stallions all the way!!!

02/07/2019 - 11:01am Devin Harris and Michael…

Devin Harris and Michael Finley come to mind, but they were never super amazing. Finley was a two-time All-Star which is the best I'm seeing.

02/07/2019 - 10:37am Yeah, you see dirty…

Yeah, you see dirty closeouts as well where the defender is only trying to place their foot underneath the airborne player. When you combine this with his nut-punch earlier this season and his all-around style of play, it's clear he is a dirty player. 

 

I would like to see the Big Ten respond with some sort of discipline for him, but know that's very unlikely.

02/07/2019 - 9:58am Of course it's not…

Of course it's not surprising, but it's still amusing to read. At least to me...

02/07/2019 - 7:57am I agree and disagree with…

I agree and disagree with you. The roads yesterday after the ice storm were not that bad at all. The commute to work was pretty much normal and would not have caused major issues. So for that, there probably should have been school. 

But there is absolutely nothing you can do when the temps dip into -30 degree windchill. That's dangerous for everybody, not just kids. Sure, some districts close school probably earlier than they have to and sometimes when it isn't even necessary. But there are just some days where you can't really do anything about it.

And as for the people in the UP having school with even more snow...there's less traffic and overall business up there so it is much easier to clear and coordinate safety when the roads are bad. They also have even more equipment to clear the roads faster.

02/06/2019 - 10:46am Yeah I left out of a lot of…

Yeah I left out of a lot of the Addidas ones for a few reasons. First, for the most part they were pretty bad. Outside of that first picture, Addidas added too much to the uniform. The piping and weird designs on the shorts ruined those for me. 

02/06/2019 - 10:44am Those are fantastic. I like…

Those are fantastic. I like pretty much any of the white basketball uniforms Michigan has worn. I particularly like our current whites, but a lot of that also has to do with Poole's buzzer beater being in those uniforms

It's definitely very similar and an obvious influence. But as someone else pointed out, the font is a little smaller and more squished together and there are some fine details that are different.

02/06/2019 - 10:33am This also just makes me…

This also just makes me realize how bad our uniforms were for most of the 2000s

It's hard to come up with specifics, but probably any Power 5 team today could beat the NFL teams back in the days where everyone had day jobs and played football for fun. And I'm going solely based off of the time commitment and effort put into today's football simply beating out the days of fewer practices and less focus on the game.

It isn't the best Michigan basketball jersey, but it sure as hell beats these maize out uniforms. They would have been so much better if just the lettering and numbers were blue.

Alright now continue to play well, but come back for next season so you can actually win the award.

And if you are trying to offer objective and honest analysis, then you are even worse than before. You don't provide anything "objective." When you try to give "honest" analysis, it just turns into you giving the most negative takes possible to try and draw a reaction.

Many people here provide honest and objective analysis without going overboard like you do. Of course there are concerns over Michigan football, but it isn't this doomsday scenario you always seem to paint it as.

The amount of effort and time you put into your trolling is remarkable. And now I can feel good about myself because I know I just made your day by responding. It's amazing that getting strangers on the internet to talk to you is what makes you happy.

02/04/2019 - 12:14pm If they're going to ask why…

If they're going to ask why they didn't go to either Michigan, MSU, or both then they should cut down on the number of recruits they ask that too. The last few players weren't offered by either so it's not like they had a choice.

01/29/2019 - 3:27pm Not all offices or…

Not all offices or businesses are the same though. I work in an office, but it's for a construction-based company. We will be closed tomorrow and Thursday because the heavy machinery will not work properly in that cold of weather. And since all of our production is closed, then there's no reason for anyone else to come in unless they want to and/or have something urgent to do.

 

01/29/2019 - 8:54am My assertion is that this…

My assertion is that this article is misleading and the OP's title is misleading. The statement, "More than 15% of Clemson's football tested positive for PEDs" is FALSE. It's 15% of those who were tested. 3 players tested positive, more than 15% of the team would be more than 13 players testing positive.

People need to actually read articles rather than just believe false and clickbaity titles. 

01/28/2019 - 2:57pm Ok, so this thread should be…

Ok, so this thread should be taken down because that article is very misleading and simply clickbait. 15% of their football players DID NOT test positive. In reality, only 20 players were tested and 3 of those 20 tested positive which is 15%. 

Of course, more players could be doping, but no one else has tested positive. The only story in the article is that Clemson is not changing their drug testing policy.

This article doesn't break any news and the OP's title is just as misleading as the article itself.

Do better.

01/25/2019 - 10:01am And you aren't limited to…

And you aren't limited to certain podcasts depending on where you live like you are with radio. There are so many more options and shows and you could even go back and re-listen to an episode if you liked it so much. The only time I listen to the radio is if I'm in the car during a Michigan Basketball or Football game. 

01/25/2019 - 9:57am They HAVE to still give the…

They HAVE to still give the older people options because the MLB is mostly attended by older fans. They have the oldest fan base of the four major leagues and the older generations are more likely to attend sporting events because they have more disposable income. 

That's another reason why sporting events today are NOTHING like what they used to be. Teams know that to get younger people to the games, you need to make it more about the experience than the game itself. Anybody can watch a game in ultra HD on a TV, so you have to offer experiences you can only get if you're at the game. 

01/25/2019 - 9:37am It's a lot harder to forget…

It's a lot harder to forget your tickets when they're on your phone. Also, Avila came out and said publicly that fans shouldn't expect the Tigers to spend a lot until "at least" the 2021 season. So expect 2 more full seasons of hot garbage before we have any glimmer of hope. 

Also, I don't listen to Detroit Sports Radio anymore as I now focus on podcasts. I listen to the WTKA Roundtable and the MGoPodcast as well as Pardon My Take and some other sports podcasts. There's always something out there that's available and doesn't have 5 minutes of commercials for every 15 minutes of radio.

If you like general college basketball stuff, I recommend the One Shining Podcast with Mark Titus (former Buckeye) and Tate Frazier. They put a funny spin on college basketball while also giving some in-depth information.

01/22/2019 - 11:46am I think most teams have a…

I think most teams have a few coaches who are in on the playcalling. Most NFL and College football teams have run and pass game coordinators.

Michigan had the process as Harbaugh picking either run or pass and depending on what he chose it would then go to Pep or Ed. Then they would give Harbaugh a play to either approve or not.

Other teams usually have one guy who is calling plays and the coordinators are there more for practicing and coming up with concepts for the gameplan. Most other teams do not have multiple people with playcalling duties. 

In other words, while other teams have the same assistant coaching positions, Michigan was giving more responsibilities to those coaches than other teams.

Honestly, I don't have a problem with it. A lot of schools already have teams, including Michigan. BTN has already put events together with schools playing against each other.

This will happen sooner or later.

After reading some comments on the board, I'm not sure people have done the proper research and actually know Faehn's relationship with Nassar. The issue here isn't really with Faehn as she was found to have reported the abuse to her immediate supervisor. The issue is how the University handled her hiring. 

Faehn is definitely a hireable coach, but not when you wait to announce it until after she's already consulting and is spotted by the public. All the Athletic Department had to do was announce it ahead of time and release the information about how all the gymnasts were asked, including Nassar victims, and they were fine with it.

01/09/2019 - 12:49pm If you asked a random…

If you asked a random current Michigan football player that is on a full-time scholarship, they would tell you that they are not really students. Football or basketball always comes first. That's why we can have Michigan play at Nebraska at 9 pm on a Tuesday night. Realistically, those players aren't getting home until the morning when they would have class.

We treat the players like students when it comes to whether they can be paid or having a minimum GPA. But we do the exact opposite in every other sense, especially when it comes to the commercialization of basketball and football. The sponsorships of the tournaments, the betting, the profit the NCAA and schools make.
