Great reversal. Didn't even take that long.

To my friend who talks about the flopping and why it's part of the game, that is EXACTLY why we need VAR. Because in the past, that was a penalty. 

06/19/2018 - 4:44pm I don't know about that. I…

I don't know about that. I think Colombia today was a huge let down. Same with Poland.

 

At least Brazil got a result, and they played a pretty damn good team.

06/19/2018 - 3:22pm Whoah! Did anyone catch that…

Whoah! Did anyone catch that U of M flag? Was that just me?

06/19/2018 - 12:37pm Because it's ridiculous, and…

Because it's ridiculous, and it's fake. And it takes away from the real injuries, because players are always thought of as fakers.

If you get knocked down, you'll get the call; go ahead and get back up and get on with your life. There doesn't need to be a show.

06/19/2018 - 12:36pm Man, could just be one of…

Man, could just be one of those things that I've thought about them. Whenever I've checked the rankings over the past few years, I saw them in the top 10. 

Didn't know they were that historically bad.

06/19/2018 - 12:26pm It wasn't a sub. The dude…

It wasn't a sub. The dude was off the field and the ref let him back on.

HORRIBLE time to do it. Wait for a stoppage.

06/19/2018 - 12:13pm Great talent, but probably…

Great talent, but probably one of the worst floppers I've seen in a long time. 

06/19/2018 - 12:12pm Senegal is decent, but they…

Senegal is decent, but they are flying around and just look the better team.

No matter what year, Poland seems to be a consistent top 10 team. 

06/19/2018 - 11:46am If you told me that Japan…

If you told me that Japan and Senegal (potentially) could be the group leaders for H, I would have laughed at ya.

Senegal is running laps around Poland right now, Poland is sleepwalking. Senegal is absolutely energized.

06/13/2018 - 3:58pm I think some of my dear…

I think some of my dear friends on here are forgetting how horrific the crashes were.

It wasn't an occasional 15-30 second break. The site would shut down for hours at a time. During a football game, the page wouldn't even load. It was inoperable for very, very long stretches at a time.

This is the same thing that happens with every transition, no matter what board. I can remember when ESPN had their boards in the late 90s and moved to another model, people were PISSED. But ESPN (not their normal thing I know), listened to complaints and made it better.

There's a lot of potential here. The old site buckled too often under the weight of use. They'll figure out how to make this better as it goes along.

06/13/2018 - 9:16am No one wants an aging 35…

No one wants an aging 35-year old hitter with one of the worst contracts in baseball.

The best thing for the Tigers to do is see if they can somehow buy him out or something to reduce the strain of the contract. And when that is decided, bring up Christian Stewart and any other kids the team planned on using in the future and letting them develop.

Same with V-Mart. His time is done, he's been a very good Tiger, but they have to move on.

06/11/2018 - 8:45am Because I am more of a…

Because I am more of a basketball guy, I would like them win the NCAA tournament, don't care if they win the regular season or tournament, just want to see them win it all?

What do I think is most needed for the school at this point? Personally, think it's a no brainer- #2

A source tells @TheAthleticDET that John Beilein and Michigan have a new contract nearly finalized. • It will be a two-year extension with a rolling option, making his contract five years in total. • Believed to be worth just under $4 million per year.

06/06/2018 - 12:15pm YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

06/06/2018 - 9:55am I can attest to this. I…

I can attest to this. I bought a higher priced TCL because it has one of the best input lag ratings for gaming. It was about 7 or 8 hundred, and well worth the purchase.

06/04/2018 - 11:36am See you all

On the other side.

06/03/2018 - 9:41pm Good for you

You don't represent everyone. You represent yourself.

Don't say things and just say "period, end of story" as though you speak for everybody.

I love college basketball. But the NBA playoffs (other than the last conference series) are very, very intriguing and intense. If you don't like them, fine.

06/03/2018 - 9:39pm Turn on

Any Michigan game other than the major matchups.

The place is maybe 1/4th full.

06/03/2018 - 9:11pm And there are

Great regular season basketball games that happen all the time in the NBA. Don't let your dislike of the NBA distort that.

A third of the college basketball season is complete crap (bottom feeders in the non-conference).

06/03/2018 - 8:54pm No

It's not period, end of story.

NHL and MLB are substantially superior to their collegiate counterparts.

And I like college basketball as much as you do, but don't act like the NBA regular season is crap and the college basketball season is some magical ride.

The regular season in college bball can be a total slog.

06/03/2018 - 6:49pm Read the part

That was free without paying the subscription. DId not see anything in there other than what Beilein has done at Michigan.

Is there anything in the article that says detailed information about new sources?

06/01/2018 - 10:04am Yes

There is. He gets mentioned for it a fair amount.

06/01/2018 - 8:43am I keep hearing

That he's a guarenteed HoFer.

Do people look at his stats?? Doesn't even average 10 points on his career PPG. 7 REB, 4.6 Assist PPG is nice, but those aren't even CLOSE to hall of fame numbers.

Not to mention, his shooting percentage is complete junk.

If he landed anywhere else but GS, he's a nice role player. That's it.

06/01/2018 - 8:31am Saw both play

A lot.

LeBron is a better overall basketball player, and has done more with substantially weaker teams. Not only that, he probably has another 4-5 years left of great basketball.

 

05/31/2018 - 3:35pm SMU in general

Is bleh.

05/31/2018 - 9:13am How's the water looking?

Need the specifics on that. I know Michigan's struggled with colder temps.

05/30/2018 - 9:23pm This search

Has made absolutely zero sense. They have an advisor, they are bringing in advisors for the advisor, those of whom coached in the 70s. 

And then, there are rumors that they want to interview Kenny freaking Smith? A dude who's been in the broadcast world for like 20 years? 

Juwan Howard would be the ONLY thing of any of this search that makes sense. He's done his time, he deserves a shot.

05/30/2018 - 4:03pm Just trust

Your Uncle Leo. He never lets you down.

05/30/2018 - 1:50pm These athletes

Do not dream of not being drafted and spending their time in Europe. It sounds nice to us, but for them, it's not their goal.

They all want to play in the NBA. If that's his goal (which it is), leaving this year makes no sense. The draft is one of the strongest it has been in a LONG time, and he's MAYBE a 2nd rounder. Next year, the talent pool shrinks, he'll have another year under his belt to shore up his game, and get 1st round money.

05/30/2018 - 1:18pm Another update

Guy sounds pretty close to the situation:

John miller Mhoops:

I truly believe a full decision has not been made yet. At least not one that I’ve been made aware of and I’ve talked to his father and both brothers.

05/30/2018 - 1:14pm Sorry

For the crap formatting.

05/30/2018 - 1:14pm Yup here's the quote from MHoops

From about an hour ago, he is returning to Michigan. Last year I posted dj was returning because that’s what dj told Charles personally. I was obviously wrong about that even though I feel I shared valid and legit information. His dad wants him to return and his brothers are pushing him to go pro. I personally have shared with his family and people close that I feel he should return. Just seems like common knowledge he’ll probably end up overseas or in the G-league.

05/30/2018 - 12:35pm It's a wash

Kennard can make his own shot, Huerter probably plays better D. Kennard is an underratedly strong dude and has 10 plus lbs on Kevin, Kevin is a couple inches taller.

Either way, they should have drafted Mitchell.

05/30/2018 - 12:23pm They must

Have watched someone different. I'm not seeing it.

05/30/2018 - 12:19pm Ethan Happ

He back.

05/30/2018 - 12:10pm Don't get

Me excited.

05/30/2018 - 12:10pm Maybe

He's a nice player. I don't know if his skills are strong enough to carve out a niche. 

He basically needs to become a Kyle Korver type (yeah, white athlete comparison). 

05/30/2018 - 9:53am Not really

This is a basketball school, so I look forward to winter and spring.

05/29/2018 - 3:16pm UMHoops

The talk in the big Matthews thread is that the noise is him not returning.

Again, no idea what's true and what's not, but there's nothing positive trending towards him staying.

05/29/2018 - 3:09pm Sadly

The majority of the talk is that Matthews is not coming back. 

I think Michigan will be alright regardless, the freshman will be getting a lot more PT.

And poor Ibi, I bet he would have stuck if he knew Matthews was leaving.

05/29/2018 - 1:30pm I could be wrong

But his attitude when I watch him just sucks. He just doesn't seem to have that drive that is necessary. Same with Querrey. He's openly said he cares more about the money than being remembered as a great tennis player. 

05/29/2018 - 1:29pm We will

There are a lot of really talented people coming up through the system, but they have just struggled to get going. And now is the time for them to come on the scene as the big 4 start to wrap up their careers.

05/28/2018 - 11:29pm Ah

So that's why the NBA's ratings are going sky high.

05/28/2018 - 10:47pm I do put some blame

On Arena.

He is one of the most arrogant coaches I can remember in any sport. The night before they play T and T, he's saying how teams from Europe should come over and play in CONCACAF.

There was never any urgency with this team.

05/28/2018 - 10:01pm Who is the down vote from?

Oh, what a shock.

05/28/2018 - 9:51pm For sure

I know it was just a little friendly, but it was nice seeing all these new guys.

I will always remember the good those guys did for the organization, but they also have to carry the stain of missing a WC. 

05/28/2018 - 8:44pm Yes it is

Time to move on from the older players. There is no need to keep trotting Dempsey and Howard out there. They will likely not be major players in future tournaments to come, and continuing to have them take up space for the kids that need the time on the big stage is silly.

Bradley probably has a few good years, and Jozy just hasn't proven himself to be useful at the highest stages. He's had MORE than enough time to make his mark.

05/28/2018 - 2:39pm Hate to be mr. negative

But one of the users on M Hoops is pretty certain Matthews is gone.

05/28/2018 - 10:50am Pretty easy

USA losing to Germany in the 2002 World Cup.

Did I do this right?

05/28/2018 - 12:31am I don't know

If I would call Sheed a bonafide star on Portland.

He was very, very good NBA player. I don't know if I can give him the S word.
