Its like the market, nobody really knows what will happen.  But judging by past performance of Beilein's team, he does know how to build chemistry and momentum come March.  We seemingly have always gone past what our initial tourney ranking says we will do.

We also have great leadership on this team, and good experience  in high pressure games.

Just get a top 3 seed and DOMINATE the tourney!

ugly ugly.  iggy needs to be more of a team player on offense.  hes straight reckless 25% of the time he drives

He is an interesting experiment for Beilein.  Unselfish ball is the greatness of Beilein's M teams.  

He clearly has talent but needs to mold into more of a 5v5 offensive player, rather then 1v1

2 five stars in the class.  3 if Charbonnet had participated.  This was a good class, despite how painful the month of Nov & Dec felt for M football fans.

I wanted to put the bulk of what I wanted to discuss before the schedule, which takes up a lot of space.  But thank you for your informative critique

12/28/2018 - 11:12am Yeah this is true.  That…

Yeah this is true.  That wasn't a good example to use on my part, but the concept remains the same.

12/28/2018 - 10:49am I think you can get some…

I think you can get some planet-sized objects that can perform well on limited snap counts.  I believe special freshman can have an impact though, such as Ed Oliver at Houston and Dexter Lawrence at Clemson.

12/28/2018 - 10:43am I agree the score…

I agree the score differential is what screwed them.  But if that was game 1 of the year versus game 7 or 8, I think its a different story.

"It was september, Haskins didn't have chemistry yet, Urban wasn't coaching, etc"

There are all sorts of story lines playoff commentators and the committee can use to justify September losses.

I dont think I made any predictions to justify "believing in shit I'm writing" comment?  Regarding your inquiry about killing time leading up to bowl - yes, yes I am.

12/28/2018 - 9:55am I'm excited about Paye and…

I'm excited about Paye and Hutchinson, but yes, DT is an unknown - although we've got plenty of options.  Freshman impact from Mazi or Hinton is crucial.

12/28/2018 - 9:35am I think the OSU game…

I think the OSU game is potentially diluting our view of the nature of our team this year.  Its a recency bias.  We have some players.  Beating Florida by a touchdown (a team that got beat by double digits to Kentucky, lost by 21(!) to Missouri) should not be an unreasonable feat.  In fact, it should be expected.  Our corners are playing and Gary won't be a significant loss.  The only major negative impact is missing Bush.  Bowl practice reports have been positive, mentioned by multiple coaches.  Our offense is back and hopefully passes 25+ times.  31-21 M

Go into offseason positive.  Read rave reports of Charbonnet as the Next Coming in Spring practice, Jeter as the next Alan Branch, McGrone as the next Bush - rinse and repeat with the Hype Train in August gearing up for a Natty run in '19 w/ OSU at home :-)

Please tell me what the true version of the great Steve Lorenz is. Other then that he’s #selfmade

12/20/2018 - 9:14pm Steve knows...nothing. I don…

Steve knows...nothing. I don’t believe he has any connections. Steve saw the tweet of Crouch and spun a story that increases clicks until Crouch commits, and allows him to say “I told you not to get too excited” when Crouch commits to Tennessee.  Sam is the only guy with connections and true inside information.

Michigan's blowout wins against UNC and Nova ( at their court)  would be viewed higher, bumping us past those two.  We already received 3 out of 30 first place votes in the coaches poll last weekend, compared to duke and tennessee's 1 each.

Nova might get em . Michigan would move to 1 if Nova and UNC win. How would that be for recruiting to be at 1 for a month or two? Perception matters . Top dog program

Mindhunters on Netflix is a great show.  Inside the mind of serial killers.  Why are we fascinated by them?

I want him gone as soon as possible. I don’t care about talking points, I care about my sanity.

Not on your list, but I believe Eli Brooks will be an important contributor down the stretch when we need some 3s.  He’s got a nice shot and seems to be getting more comfortable.

umbig11 - have you heard anything regarding Coaches optimism for Zach Harrison?  Is this one a lock for UM?

It’s not bad. It’ll be glorious to win there this year. We need to not fear them and their environment, fill up 20% of stadium, and cheer loud to help our boys.

Our recruiting classes are always better then Michigan States, yet we have lost 8 of the last 10 to them.  You are going to tell me they haven't had a mental advantage over us in the past?

 

They are always more fired up, always more aggressive when they play us.

09/24/2018 - 1:34pm I think Penn St will win. …

I think Penn St will win.  Road at night in Happy Valley is a beast.. and their offense is really good.  Not sure how good Ohio State is (TCU losing by multiple scores to Texas...Maryland beat Texas).  TCU was really moving the ball against the Buckeye D.  Either way - great game to watch this weekend after we stomp NW.

Great video, thank you to your son. Poole is going to be damn fun to watch next year.

"Vikings" on Amazonvideo is really good. History of the norsemen in the 800s in a really entertaining series. "Rome" is also really good - tracks Julius Caesar's rise to power.

06/25/2018 - 11:21am This would be a massive…

This would be a massive victory for the staff, but these kind of recruiting fights are very difficult when you have been getting your ass kicked by the school you are competing against for the past 15 years.  Zach has never seen Michigan beat a good OSU team, and grew up around people who no longer respect Michigan Football.  

Would love to stick it to Urbs with this recruiting win and then a W in Columbus this year!

I think the big thing going for us is the personalities on our team.  We have so many good kids with a great mix of ambition as well as just being a good, well rounded person.  One of the things not discussed as much is that Harbaugh does not recruit the punks that Ohio State does.  We are attracting the type of people Michigan wants as alums and ambassadors for the program.  Harbaugh understands the concept "Michigan Man" very well.

06/25/2018 - 11:15am Ed seems like an impressive…

Ed seems like an impressive man and coach, who understands Michigan's values and potential.  He grew up in Ohio and gained respect for Bo, he knows the tradition and type of O Linemen Michigan should have.  His interview after spring practice was good to watch - he seems confident and Harbaugh eluded to a "long relationship" with Ed, which would bring some needed stability to our O Line room.  I'm not sure the ceiling of our 2018 O Line is top 10 (or top 20), but even with a 20-40ish range nationally we can compete for a championship with our dominant defense, verge of stardom receivers, and strong passing and running from our QB.   3rd and 8's with Shea's scrambling ability will seem much more achievable this year.

05/03/2018 - 12:04pm Even if the talent level

Even if the talent level remained the same from last year, Warriner is worth an improvement.  But add in that now we have second year players we havent seen such as Hudson, FIliaga, & Steuber to add depth/competition.  Ruiz will take a step up, and sounds like could be an All Big Ten type center.  That significant helps.  Our guards have both been independently hyped.  I'm really curious about Onwenu.  I remember his first camp Harbaugh making a comment that he will have a long professional career in football.  Where did hype go?  Spanellis said he takes most of his guard reps at RG, showing that Onwenu's spot still may not be set in stone.

 

I think the most significant news is Runyan's rise.  If we can just get it down to one weak spot (LT), you gotta think that a combination of JBB/Steuber/Hudson will have the confidence and competence to make our line AT LEAST average.  

Add in a fast quarterback, some fast, big receivers, and Higdon - there is enough there to make a run.

04/29/2018 - 8:03pm Thank you.

Thank you.

04/25/2018 - 5:21pm I cannot wait to have

I cannot wait to have dominant receivers, and a dominant pass game in general.  Especially with receivers like Tarik and DPJ who have a swagger to them.  Appreciate the run game - but something so satisfying about deep ball completions and contested endzone grabs by big wide outs!

04/14/2018 - 2:15pm Really proud of this kid. 

Really proud of this kid.  Thank you Moe, we wish you all the best.  What a great human being to have apart of the Michigan family.

04/01/2018 - 6:31pm The Fab Five is a part of the

The Fab Five is a part of the history of our Program, for good and for bad.  It exposed some of the dirty elements of collegiate sports, while at the same time showing some of the truth behind the exploitation.  Above all, it showed a story about five men from struggling backgrounds coming together, becoming brothers, and creating a new style on the basketball court.  It encapsulated the nation, and is an interesting phenomenon in the history of college basketball.  I am proud of that team, those guys, and hope our university welcomes them back with open arms and does more to mend the relationships.

01/09/2018 - 2:25pm Well you see Dave - many in

Well you see Dave - many in our fanbase believe we need to recruit better to compete with the Alabamas... and they are the posters you refer to in the thread below.  On this thread, however, the many fans that believe it is OK to gain commitments for 3 stars and develop, post.  It is an interesting phenonemon known as response bias.

As you would know with your fanbase, there are many different personalities and opinions amongst large bases.  Perhaps the many low IQ, ignorant Buckeye fans outnumber the more reasonable fans; however,  reasonable buckeye fans exist, as I am sure you can attest to.
