Very cool. You must have some great stories. I will at Mich Th. on 4/14 to see CMS. and will look for you....   How did you get this wonderful gig?

Both Pat and Wynton played concerts at Hill last fall. The UMS jazz series is terrifc. I knew nothing about Jazz until coming to A2 (first concert was Ella Fitzgerald) and since then I've been hooked.

The next concert is Cecile McLorin Salvant at the Mich Theater April 14th. Here she is w/ Wynton:

Now we know where her boys get their sore loser whining attitude from!

Other than the F Ohio chants the crowd was enthusiastic and well behaved and those blue foam lights were only tossed (everywhere) at the very end and they were literally light as a feather.

Hell even Big Buck was there and nobody messed with him (even though her looks like a clown).

There was a OSU family near press row whose kids were screaming whenever UM shot FTs and they got some looks but that was it. 

Mrs. Wesson is just mad her boys are going to the NIT and that her boy can't dunk over a 5'10" guard.

Honeywell generators are made by Generac.

Costco sells some good Generac systems capable of running your whole house. Having a natural gas line with an in line system is the way to go. You also need a 200 AMP transfer switch. If you don't know what this is get estimates/hire an electrician and they can also tell you how many KW you need.

This is a pretty good deal

As long as tonight's game is on, I'm fine. I will be there. Screw OSU!

This is my favorite too because Illinois was a great team, played great, but we played a bit better.  F

T Mills missed his final two shots resulting in Mark Hughes three pointer and on the next possession Sean Higgin put back winner.

Jamal Mashburn was out cruising on Bourbon Street about an hour after game.

It was an epic game, but I first realized there that "the pros to be" get over losses much quicker than their fans.

Adam Messner, a terrific player and guy, had some interesting comments.

Not that it isn't already, but if Sparty beats Purdue, it will really be a two team race.

Indiana, Nebraska and Maryland have totally crapped in their pants and don't look well coached.

Parris had a 206 - 1 prep record in Indiana and now is in the College of Engineering. Very impressive.

I noticed the OSU wrestling crowd was noisier than their catherdral like basketball crowds....

The perplexed ones probably have some ties to central Ohio ; )

Yeah people bitch and moan, but I haven't seen an accident at the State Street roundabout and I used to live at that Costco.

Heck they put THREE roundabouts by Skyline high school !! Imagine a new driver hitting those?  Must be smart kids. The brand new ones in Dexter and on North Territorial and US -23 work really well.

Best Fast Drivers on the worst roads

No brainer. Plus we have figured out roundabouts!

A friend near Dublin Ohio says they have a roundabout there with a very high number of accidents because they can't figure out how it works.

I was thinking the exact same thing this morning re Sam's laugh about JUB's wood anniversary comment.

I laughed hard at Sam's laughing. JUB does laugh like an old man.

Was in West Quad just before JUB. First people I met in the dorm were the Paul Heuerman and the Bodnar brothers. Great guys except Heureman's kid became a stud TE at OSU.

01/25/2019 - 1:39pm Karch and Anderson have good…

Karsh and Anderson have good chemistry and are good too but midday talk radio though is usually a rehash of news from the morning. Also, a little too much " did you see that horrific sports injury" type stuff. I guess they need to dumb down their audience in time for Valenti.

Jamie did get ripped and that was funny and he does look like Eddie Munster. Stan Edwards is the one who thinks he is the smartest one in the room. Stoney reminds me of a lot of my east coast friends from UM back in the day.

01/25/2019 - 10:11am Sam and Ira on WTKA are the…

Sam and Ira on WTKA are the best

Jamey and Stoney on WDFN are a close second. I like broadcasters who are intelligent and not just out for shock value. Detroit sports are at an all time low for ineptitude so just plain bitching about a team losing/bad owner/ bad stadium/ bad tickey policy doesn't entertain me anymore.

really enjoy umhoops.com in addition to this site (not right after a loss).

I thought people without a phone could go through a will call type entrance still. Not convenient but if you want to go to a game one still can. 

01/22/2019 - 9:06am Maryland way too many really…

Maryland way too many really bad/unforced turnovers. Do that and miss your open shots you wont even beat Rutgers...cough, cough  Nebraska ... cough.

Lots of basketball to be played before we play Sparty for the #1 and # 2 seeds in the meaningless money maker B10 tourney. 

All I care about is no injuries, play fundamental basketball, get better every week, and prepare for March Madness.

Bill Freehan and Don Dufek

Freehan was a big guy for his day (played TE briefly for UM) and was the best MLB catcher not named Johnny Bench.

Don Dufek was a captain for the Seahawks and was a very good hockey player. Not sure how many players are drafted by both the NHL and NFL.

The students were on break so it was relatively calm. They normally hate us.

My favorite part was watching Coach Chris Farley toss his jacket.

Virginia's defense, physical style, and all around play can handle Duke.

That match up and UM - MSU will be riviting.

My MGoD took me to the PSU game (which was packed) in the Maize Rage and I had a blast. Standing up the whole game, booing the refs, and screaming like a 20 year old was fun (although I needed to chug a Coke to rehydrate and sugar up). I dressed like a M lunatic and fit right in.

She probably went out to Ricks and I went home and slept...

Clemson won the game in the trenches where most games are won.

They also had no critical turnovers or penalties, which is related in part to the first point.

With what they have returning and who is coaching them, these two teams will be back in playoffs next year and the rest of the country will fight for two spots.

As I recall the few times Haskins was running for his life, he was a below average QB.  Not even sure he got his jersey dirty the whole season except for the Purdue game. 

The Lions need/want the QBs playing tonight .

Jordan Poole by the end of the year

I kid...maybe...don't underestimate anything he can do...his complete game including some damned good defense...seems to improve weekly.

Wayman Britt and Zack Novak were two great defenders by their senior years.

Agree on "we'll see". I'm more interested on who goes pro early and which coaches are leaving/coming in for both UM and OSU before I spend much time figuring out which potential newcomers will have an impact in the Big10.

None of the QBs compare favorably to the ones who will be playing Monday. I want to dislike Lawrence but that guy has it all, plays well under pocket pressure, and is still improving weekly as he is only 19. If he or Tua went to OSU, I'd be concerned.

01/03/2019 - 11:25pm Came back from the game…

Came back from the game impressed by the methodical, grinding, sometimes ugly winter break effort. We are miles ahead of last year

Playing two weeks against zone defenses and then matching up against a very good defensive man to man team and great defensive rebounding team was always going to be a challenge, especially early on.

Playing with out Livers, having several rim roll outs, and not really getting any 50/50 calls ( I'm being nice) and still the game outcome never felt in doubt due to our strong defense.

Poole is becoming one of my all time favorite players and did so many good things on the court. Love this team!
