I too have xfinity TV and cable. About every two years my rate goes up and I call and they find me a better deal to reduce the bill. Also, DVR capability is a must for my lifestyle. My wife refuses to watch commercials.

People I know who have cut the cord complain about channel selection, picture quality, navigation issues and no DVR option. I guess everyone needs to do what works best for them.

03/12/2019 - 2:36pm I quit reading at the jump…

I quit reading at the jump. I figured out that this wasn’t a serious discussion. I’m glad it wasn’t just me.

03/11/2019 - 12:17pm Well, sorry if I missed your…

Well, sorry if I missed your point, but you were talking about X not being able to shoot and the next sentence was about bringing in a shooter.

Next year’s class already has two shooters in it and there could be more.

03/11/2019 - 11:16am Something, something, it is…

Something, something, it is different to elevate versus planting, pivoting, changing directions, etc.

Still, that is a positive sign.

03/11/2019 - 11:14am ..... it is hard not see…

..... it is hard not see Michigan v. Michigan State Part 3 as coming to fruition next Sunday. 

Actually, I don’t think that is the most likely outcome, as much as I would love to see it.

03/11/2019 - 11:08am but I’d love for Beilein to…

but I’d love for Beilein to go the grad transfer route and find the best shooter available and recruit the hell out of him, just one seriously Just A Shooter type will help this team so much.

He did that a year ago with Simmons and he couldn’t crack the rotation.

03/10/2019 - 4:09pm I am not expecting a long…

I am not expecting a long run. With our offensive deficiencies, we are at risk to lose to just about any tournament team.

03/09/2019 - 7:27pm Lose by one point with two…

Lose by one point with two scoring chances on the final possession. Can’t get much closer than that.

03/08/2019 - 4:38pm We seem to be trying hard to…

We seem to be trying hard to lose this game.

03/07/2019 - 3:53pm Yeah but is he a gnome or a…

Yeah but is he a gnome or a munchkin or an Oompa Loompa?

03/07/2019 - 3:49pm I said prior to our Maryland…

I said prior to our Maryland game, that I thought that we COULD win there and if we did, then we WOULD win at MSU. I’m sticking with that. Go Blue!

03/07/2019 - 3:44pm Yet Michigan at home,…

Yet Michigan at home, honoring the 1989 team and with everything on the line, lost to MSU who played a near perfect game, so.........

03/07/2019 - 10:40am He recently said that…

He recently said that Geordie Howe was his hero.

03/06/2019 - 2:30pm The difference, as I recall…

The difference, as I recall it, was Michigan fans trying to talk other M fans off the ledge or getting them to stop complaining because we were playing walk ons due to injury (and losing). Whereas, Izzo is winning and complaining before and after games about how hard it is on him to have to coach this way.

03/04/2019 - 8:31pm as DDJ isn't ready yet, and…

as DDJ isn't ready yet, and I don't understand why everyone thinks he is....

Because most casual fans focus mainly on offensive skill set.

03/03/2019 - 9:34pm Many have been saying all…

Many have been saying all year long that our free throw shooting would cost us a game or two. It hasn’t. It was actually the difference in today’s game.

03/03/2019 - 9:27pm Michigan has looked very…

Michigan has looked very dialed in the last two games. We are playing for a championship Saturday. I expect a very good effort.

03/02/2019 - 4:58pm Both oh our HDTV sets went…

Both oh our HDTV sets went blank at 7:00. I quit trying to get them working after about 10 minutes and checked the TV in the bedroom. It is not HD and it was working fine. At halftime, I checked the HD TVs and they were back in working order. 

Who knows what the hell is going on with Comcast.

03/02/2019 - 11:20am I think it was in the bowl…

I think it was in the bowl game. Oh wait, he didn’t play in the bowl game. 

Glad he put that extra time to good use by improving his speed and receiving skills.

03/02/2019 - 11:13am You must have Comcast.

You must have Comcast.

03/02/2019 - 11:10am Ace: One of the main reasons…

Ace: One of the main reasons Michigan was so ineffective with Austin Davis on the floor is that his teammates clearly didn’t trust him to catch entry passes of any sort;

I take great exception to this comment. Austin Davis has great hands. It is his greatest strength. If teammates were reluctant to pass him the ball, it was more likely because they thought he would travel or otherwise not do anything productive with it. Catching the ball is not his problem.

I loved this freshman class review.

02/14/2019 - 3:30pm Maybe he meant to say my…

Maybe he meant to say my West Virginia. That would make a little more sense, but not much.

02/13/2019 - 3:14pm I’m glad I got to see all 5…

I’m glad I got to see all 5 of Harbaugh’s and Beilein’s national championships.

02/13/2019 - 3:10pm And the offending player had…

And the offending player had his back to the basket and was facing the sideline official so there was no obstructed view (unless said official had his head up his ass).

02/11/2019 - 1:42pm I hate losing more than I… I hate losing more than I love winning. - Zack Novak
02/10/2019 - 3:26pm Man, you are just asking for…

Man, you are just asking for it.

02/09/2019 - 7:19pm Second strong game in a row…

Second strong game in a row. Hope that means we are back up to par.

02/05/2019 - 10:29pm Oh, wait, Cassius Winston…

Oh, wait, Cassius Winston had 9(!!) of those turnovers.

Michigan had 7 turnovers as a team tonight.

02/03/2019 - 10:19pm No matter how many you win,…

No matter how many you win, you always want one more.

Congratulations Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

02/01/2019 - 5:11pm As a fan, I like guys who…

As a fan, I like guys who are around for at least 2-3 years, so you get to know them and watch them develope. I would hate being a Kentucky fan and cheering for a different group of MacDonalds All-Americans every year, even if they do win a lot of games. I don’t know that Kentucky has demonstrated tournament success with this model. I am not sure that is even their goal.

01/31/2019 - 10:27am If she doesn’t like what…

If she doesn’t like what fans have to say, she better not read the game thread at 11 Warriors where a fan called her son stupid. I assume it was a Buckeye fan.

01/30/2019 - 3:07pm If he is going to accomplish… If he is going to accomplish any of those awards next year, he is going to have to go through Zavier Simpson. Probably at least twice. Can't wait.
01/29/2019 - 11:29pm Not a great game by Michigan…

Not a great game by Michigan, but any win over OSU feels great. 

It was a great game by Simpson.

01/29/2019 - 1:00pm Isn’t Matthews on track to…

Isn’t Matthews on track to graduate? He has been in college for 4years. There is zero chance he returns. Besides, we have already used his scholarship.

01/29/2019 - 12:54pm Agree, but I think he can…

Agree, but I think he can certainly be heavy and strong enough to play serious back up minutes to Teske next year. Is so, that would free up Johns to play, maybe start, at the 4. Then you could have Livers getting 20+ minutes a game backing up the 3 and 4. That would make us really strong at the 3-5 without even having to use the freshmen.

01/29/2019 - 12:46pm Pretty much the same way I…

Pretty much the same way I see MSU, or Izzo, to be more exact.

01/28/2019 - 4:13pm That is the first game that…

That is the first game that came to mind for me, and one of the many reasons that Glen Rice is my favorite player of all time.

01/28/2019 - 4:05pm This seems incorrect. Saw a…

This seems incorrect. Saw a chart elsewhere that indicated Michigan’s defense has been good when Eli has been on the court.

i also agree with the multi DDJ air balls. Granted, small sample, but you would think he could at least draw iron a little more iron.

01/28/2019 - 11:34am Against Indiana.

Against Indiana.

01/28/2019 - 10:40am Neither of the two have…

Neither of the two have looked like good shooters during their limited time on the floor, thus far. But, that hasn’t stopped them from cranking up the shots. They must lead the team in average shot attempts per minute played.

01/27/2019 - 3:09pm Tied in the all important…

Tied in the all important loss column.

01/27/2019 - 3:07pm We control our own destiny.

We control our own destiny.

 

01/27/2019 - 1:13pm Boiler up!

Boiler up!

01/22/2019 - 9:24pm Teske with 7 for 8 from the…

Teske with 7 for 8 from the floor. The other 4 starters were 11 for 42. The bench was 3 for 12.

where would we be without the Big Sleep.

01/21/2019 - 8:17pm Confidence/aggressiveness is…

Confidence/aggressiveness is holding him back. He should be doing more right now. Shoot when open and go strong to the rim when he can. He is probably the guy in the rotation that can still up his game the most this year.

01/21/2019 - 12:56pm Wasn’t it Nebraska last year…

Wasn’t it Nebraska last year that did the switch everything defense, or did Purdue first do it in a prior year?

01/21/2019 - 12:02am I was watching on TV and can…

I was watching on TV and can’t recall a game with more charging and blocking calls. When a close game went to an 8 point lead for OSU late in the third quarter, the broadcast team put up a graphic showing UMs recent trouble with closing out games. I had to leave the house with under 4 minutes left in the game and UM still down about 8 points. I figured it was a lost cause. Great to see that they pulled it out.

01/19/2019 - 5:53pm Did Brooks take a long 2 or…

Did Brooks take a long 2 or not? The box score says no.

01/18/2019 - 11:35am Higdon, you’re dead to me…

Higdon, you’re dead to me now. You’re not a brother, you’re not a friend. I don’t want to see you in the casinos or the hotels. When you play in an All Star game, I want two days notice so I won’t be watching.

01/17/2019 - 3:14pm How about the first play in…

How about the first play in the Spring Game?
