The 2014 team is vastly underrated.    One of the best 1 loss teams in terms of pure talent.     If the 2015 team took care of business, that's a top 10 team of all time easy.

Michigan's culture and values are so different when hiring coaches, do you think they would ever hire a coach with a DUI?

This of course is just what Michigan fans say to themselves to stroke their egos, especially with an under performing team for the last 20 years.   I think Michigan at one time was the most penalized team in NCAA violations.

The Cavs aren't trading for rookies, even though Held or Murray could develop into good fits.   I'd try to trade for Butler or Boogie.    The Cavs also need to get rid of these old guys who can't play defense and are of little help against a team like Golden State.

One of the best things about Harbaugh being the coach is the hypocritical nature of the Wolverine fan base being so transparent.  One example:

Nick Saban using some questionable methods to trim the roster - the SEC is so corrupt, and it's unfair. / Harbaugh using questionable methods to trim the roster - TRUST IN HARBAUGH

Did Jim Harbaugh just lie when he said the NCAA just made up a rule that disallowed him from signing autographs at camps, or was that rule always in place?

Man, for the being the 2nd best college football coach in the state of Michigan, that guy gets a lot of press.

Yea, he's not a blatant hypocrite - any guess who said this:  “Michigan is a good school and I got a good education there,” he said, “but the athletic department has ways to get borderline guys in and, when they’re in, they steer them to courses in sports communications. They’re adulated when they’re playing, but when they get out, the people who adulated them won’t hire them.”

I would guess that most people believe that law enforcement framed a guilty man in Avery, which - in our country - is not justice.   Although I believe Avery to be guilty, even with some of the evidence not shown in the doc, there are a few compelling pieces to the puzzle where I don't think anyone can say he is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.   First, we are supposed to believe that Avery and Dassey (at best Avery is of average intelligence, and Dassey is borderline mentally challenged) could do this crime (which, ordering to the prosecution, although not presented at trial) included shooting, stabbing, and moving the body, and the only thing found with the victim's DNA is a bullet fragment found months later by a questionable LEO.   Yet the same guys who could swipe DNA off of everything, were stupid enough not to destroy her car / leave big blood spots in her car / not get rid of her key.   Second, the LEO who "called in" the victim's vehicle 2 days before it was officially found is highly suspect.  I've seen the theory that law enforcement and / or the victim's brother and ex boyfriend did an illegal search of the Avery property.

Great series though, especially for people who are just learning about issues in the criminal justice system.

Das,

I would suggest you watch all of the Paradise Lost movies (there are ) plus West of Memphis and do additional research.   To clarify a few things, the only reason the defendants took an "Alford" plea is because one of the defendants was on death row, and betting with one's life is a very dangerous thing, especially after being in prison for that long.   If the state really believed these were child killers, do you think they would of offered an "Alford" plea and let child killers out in the public?    Without getting into too much detail, the DNA in this case pointed to other people killing the boys (hence the reason the Alford plea was being offered), and also coercion by law enforcement.   One of the three hardly knew the other two as well.  

Highly recommend you - and anyone else - interested in this case to watch the material, before you label them as child killers.   These are men who lost 20 years of their lives in prison, and just about everyone who thought they were guilty in the 90s has recanted.

These Harbaugh issues bring out the great hypocrisy of being a Michigan fan.  Most of them, their self worth is so low, that being a ‘Michigan man’ is how they try to convince themselves they are better than anyone else.

In regards to all of these de-commits – and particularly the one regarding Swanson – many Michigan fans will just continue to shout “YOU DON’T KNOW THE WHOLE STORY” – yet when criticizing any other coach / fan base (included but not limited to Ohio State), that “other side of the story” really isn’t relevant.   One of the writers of their biggest fan site writes an article about how Harbaugh has pulled offers before, and yet when it happens, they can’t make the connection.

Harbaugh is a good coach.  Probably the best coach Michigan could find.   Probably someone who can beat Ohio State 1/3 of the time which is a big improvement for them.   But a guy who has coached in college for ten years, who has never won any type of championship, has not proven himself to be an elite coach (UFM, after 10 years of a college coach had 2 MNCs and another undefeated season)   He was proven himself to be an elite douche though.

Bert basically said the SEC West is the strong division because all of the teams have to play each other.  Apparently he is unaware that this happens in all divisions of all conferences in college football. 

Comment 01 Dec 2015

Agreed, we all have opinions.

Most NBA players, writers, coaches disagree with yours though.

Still LOLing at you stating Bob Petit was better than Kobe though, thanks for the laugh.  

Comment 30 Nov 2015

LOL @ Myself for forgetting Jordan. 

LOL @ you for including Jerry West after I already did.

And if you're going to bring up the absurd - mentioning players that not only did you not see play, but almost nobody would ever think were near Kobe's league, you proved my point about how underrated he is.  At worse, he is the 5th best guard in NBA history, but probably the 3rd best one.

Quick quiz - how many players have been the best player on back-to-back championship teams?

Mikan, Russell, Magic, Isiah, Jordan, Shaq, Hakeem, Kobe, Lebron.

That's it.   

Still LOLing @ someone thinking Bob Petit or Bob Cousy even near Kobe
