I actually believe this game is all about Iggy--his ability to defend Jalen Smith on the block, stay out of foul trouble, and go back to the offensive efficiency juggernaut he was before Christmas.

Also, Mark Turgeon is 0-19 against ranked teams on the road.

Problem is that "playing at a level they are not capable of playing at" is not so black and white. I would guess that most "analysts" would've said Jordan Kovacs could never play at the D1 level.

Are they throwbacks if they were never produced or worn? 89 unis were only home whites and road blues.

Statement: If Michigan loses, Garrison is reffing.

Contrapositive (logically equivalent): If Garrison isn't reffing, Michigan doesn't lose.

Given: Garrison will not ref Michigan NCAA games.

Conclusion: Michigan will not lose in the NCAA tournament.

With his resume, if Mattison simply wanted to coordinate, there are plenty of good programs that would've loved to have him. In other words, he could've told OSU to piss off and been fine.

Take the white trim out of the road uniforms:

No white piping in the home football uniforms, which is what makes them great.  The colors are maize and blue; not maize, white, and blue.

EDIT:

Home white throwbacks looked awesome on one Mr. Burke:

  • Early exit in big ten tourney and NCAA tourney with our shooting. FALSE
  • MSU Purdue and Maryland will finish ahead of us when the season ends. Maybe Wisconsin. FALSE
  • Beilein needs to recruit better big men. MAYBE
  • No depth at all behind Teske. TRUE
  • Teske is not that impressive. FALSE
  • He had had a couple of decent games. FALSE
  • But other than that not impressed. YOUR PREROGATIVE (BUT LIKELY FALSE)

You're not exactly racking up the wins yourself, there, chief.

Don't even need her to go to the game.  Meet her at her tailgate, have her put on the maize and blue, and then have her walk from the parking lot to the stadium in those colors. Tell her a secret service detail is not allowed.

01/30/2019 - 11:21am All of you saying/thinking…

All of you saying/thinking Poole and/or Iggy are good enough to go pro right now, I just don't get your thinking.  They're not high-ceiling types that were 5-star blue chippers who can play above the rim, and they both make way too many poor decisions with the ball.  Poole's pass attempt through the middle of the lane and his bumble at the top of the key were indicative that he clearly needs more seasoning.  And if any of you ever see Iggy pass the ball when he's driving to the hoop (even when there are 3 defenders challenging him) please let the rest of us know.  And both are average defenders in college and not elite.

These two are not headed to the NBA, if they want to be a first round pick.  Honestly, Charles should stay for another year if he can because if I'm a NBA GM, I wouldn't use a pick on him.  He is an elite defender but at the pro level, he subtracts a lot of value on the offensive end. Can't shoot, pass, dribble, or make value-added decisions.

Now, none of this has anything to do with how I feel about this team and their prospects going forward in college basketball.  If the normal Beilein offense curve happens with this team, the only teams that can beat us are in the top 10 and we will be at least to the Elite 8.

Clearly Warde knew about potential fallout b/c he said "no" in the first place. What's baffling is that, after talking to only the Michigan coaches and players, he was cool with it.  He failed to have a plan in place to deal with the fallout that he knew would happen.

This is clearly not a fire-able offense, but better strategic anticipatory plans going forward I would like to see.

I think Zordich and other DB coaches we have on staff can teach the fine arts of it, but you have to do it a lot to get good at it.  Moreover, being good at man coverage technique takes A TON of reps so sometimes that comes at the expense of being good in zone.

This is why it's very important to develop depth at DB because they'll need some years to excel at both, unless you're a future NFL All-Pro (and those come along once in a few decades).

01/09/2019 - 11:39am At BC he was Cover 2 base…

At BC he was Cover 2 base and Man-free as his secondary (extremely generally speaking). I'm guessing that Harbaugh wanted him to be the opposite as they play much more man in the NFL.  In other words, 1) Michigan wants to have base schemes that are very prevalent in the NFL in order to attract top recruits, and 2) Michigan can attract the type of athletes that can cover elite WRs.

I don't know if the game tipped off or not, but apparently post game coverage of a wild card game is more important than a live sporting event.

As John Beilein would say, just gotta keep grinding, keep working.  If these players are coached up, it will crack soon.

Definition of Price Gouging

Noun

  1. The practice of raising prices on certain types of goods and services to an unfair level, especially during a state of emergency.

It's not that they charge rent, it's the ridiculous prices they charge.  I think these parents would be better off financially buying their kid a car and an apartment in a neighboring town, and telling Ann Arbor landlords to get bent.
