    The running game has improved. Blount's not too shabby.

    Hate to say it but I have little faith in this State team.

    And BOOM! Michigan hockey punches their ticket to the Frozen Four, on top of the hoops conquest. Mel Pearson has done a hell of a job his 1st year, to say the least.

    Can't believe the Tigers are going with Zimmerman over Fulmer for the opener today.

    And they've already been rained out. Sounds like the story of our season.

    Something tells me that a rainout would still be more exciting than the actual game.

    Garbage call in the bottom of the 10th. No way there was enough evidence to overturn that run.

    An entertaining home opener between two bad teams. Nothing really you can complain about.

    I would feel bad for the suckers sitting outside. But odds are many of them were "tanked" to begin with.

    They are slated to finish either last or second to last in the entire league this year. I don't see that changing unfortunately. I really don't want to go through the Randy Smith era again.

    Honestly, the Pistons are in a bad position for 3-4 years right, so I would like to see a piece added to the core, so I thought who else could they add, without giving up a piece of the core? I see that there might be some tension with Wiggins in Minnesota, it is a bad contract but we could dump leur. So I would propose.

    Stanley, leur, ish, and Bullock (or a 1st) for wiggins, Tyrus jones.

    They get shooting and depth, build around KAT and Butler. We get a borderline star that fits our age.

    Jackson/buycks/Jones
    Kennard/galloway
    Wiggins/mle(hopefully tyreke)/2nd
    Griffen/tolliver/ellensen
    Drummond/moreland

    U get a coach who realizes how to stagger the lineup and that is a playoff team with potential for alot more if healthy

    Shocker of all shockers, UofM chokes against Notre Dame in the Frozen Four on a last second goal.

    I know you were being sarcastic, but I think the shocker is that they made the FF: young team, new coach, rebound year, no Lockwood in the line up. Plus Hayden Lavigne is fantastically inconsistent in net.

    Notre Dame has been playing with some serious mojo but their luck needs to run out sometime.

    Looks like ESPN is still on top of their game.

    fairly quiet offseason for the lions

    should be an interesting season with patricia at the helm. Cant wait to watch more Stafford. Looking for Golladay to become a big time player, rounding out our receiving corps.

    Want to know what will attract great UFA to Michigan teams? It might just be Meijer. I'm waiting for the first ad to pop up, "Son of a *****, it's just some kind of store."

    I think Patricia plans on breaking that 6 year streak of not having a 100 yard rusher. Glasgow slides in at left guard, all of a sudden if healthy the lions could have a top o line in the league. Swanson was really holding them back

    It's not that it really even was a bad pick. The Lions can't run the ball nor really even protect Stafford.

    The problem is that they didn't trade down. That's what makes it bad.
