"As an example, I would have loved Mo Bamba, and Luke Kennard before him. But I'm wondering if it would be worth it to have them for a year, and then have them go to the NBA. Mind you, if a kid is projected as a lottery pick, they almost have to go to the NBA. But it seems to me that they don't have the experience and savvy to lead a team to win the championship."


I think this is probably true but that doesn't preclude a program (like Michigan's) from following the Beilein philosophy while still incorporating 4* and 5* one or two and done players.  I think the major flaw in Beilein's system is that there are going to occasionally be low nadirs when a group of players who mature together all leave together.  We've already seen this.

Bringing in a highly talented, highly recruited freshman every year or two would raise those floors substantially.  You just don't ask - or expect - these players to lead

But all that said, I too am very happy with Beilein.  Not sure that playing with fire is worth it

11/18/2017 - 11:20am Flawless Prediction

Michigan's first offensive play is a Peters play action to a streaking DPJ for an 80 yard score


shhh ... don't tell Paul Chryst!

10/15/2017 - 10:38am Speight >> O'Korn

Not sure how this is debatable.

This team misses Speight terribly.  Probably cost us the MSU game.

Speight does exactly what Harbaugh wants; not make mistakes.  He isn't prolific, and hardly one of the better QBs in the conference right now, but definitely heads and shoulders above O'Korn who neither plays with Speight's decision making nor display's Speight's football IQ

I'm predicting Sparty to polish off KU for us.  Typical Izzo move

10/28/2016 - 1:36am I Think It Will Be Fairly Close

The smart play is to start conservative and grind down State, with occasional shots downfield. By the end of the Maryland game, the Terps were shoving Sparty out of the way and going for 5-6 right up the gut. Michigan has a much better offensive line and running backs. State will push back early and might even grab a lead but they don't have the talent or depth to grind with Michigan this year.

10/26/2016 - 1:10pm How bizarre?

Maybe it's a recency thing.  As decades pass my identity is much less tied to UM than it once was.

When people ask me where I went to school, it is almost always code for "where did you get your doctrate", and prelude to by what degrees we are separated.  No one would particularly care that I got my undergrad 25 years previously at UM.

10/26/2016 - 1:03pm It's round


Any real fan would know that.

10/26/2016 - 9:33am No it's a run-on

With a lot of random punctuation marks scattered around.

Well done!

10/26/2016 - 4:47am Yeah, that was a bizarre

Yeah, that was a bizarre claim.  I don't know of anyone who runs around stating their bonafides like Name, Rank, Serial Number.

I only rarely mention that I did my undergrad at UM since my professional degree (at a different university) is much more relevant to my career.


I read Dizzo's thread in realish time and thought it was fine.  Not sure why Gameboy has a bone to pick here

10/09/2016 - 7:59am And then drop kick the extra

And then drop kick the extra point

10/09/2016 - 7:55am MSU Game Will Be Close

Rutgers was a special case.

I'd guess there's only about a 40% chance the Wolverines paste 78 points on Sparty

09/04/2016 - 8:13am Even if this kills his

Even if this kills his football career he'll have that high quality Buckeye education for fallback

10/18/2015 - 7:42am RUN!

Hindsight being 20/20, I've thought a lot about this and punting was a terrible decision.  MSU was much more likely to be able to return a punt or block a punt than to succeed on a Hail Mary from that part of the field.

Run a toss sweep.  Maybe you get the first down, probably you don't.  UM wins the game either way.  Running a high leverage play instead was just asking for trouble.

Everyone thought Michigan would suck?  Check.

Prodigal Harbaugh returns to save the team?  Check.

Shutouts against a ranked opponent and then Maryland?  Check.


Next up, shutout the Spartans too.


Wish there was a thumping of Notre Dame in here too.  Beggars/choosers.


11/03/2013 - 6:46am Say what you wish, Michigan

Say what you wish, Michigan needed this outcome.  Now there are no illusions about the progress of the program.

Pretty sure Hoke knows exactly what lessons there are to learn here.

Interesting.  From the pic, the only electric media coverage of the Schembechler hiring came from the four local tv stations.  With Rodriguez the national media pushed the local guys to the walls.
