FORUM POSTING RULES - Read before posting

Forum Rules.

(1) The guiding principle for posting in this forum is moderate yourselves.

(2) Don't write a post that attacks, impugns or denigrates another poster's character. There's an obvious difference between the language of humor and hateful, debased language. Know the difference and post accordingly.

(3) This is a Michigan sports forum. The forum welcomes posts from M's sports rivals. Talking smack, posting sass is what college sports rivalries are all about. Rules (1) and (2) above apply. If you don't want to view the posts of a rival talking smack or sassing, use the ignore feature in User Controls.

(4) This forum is about sharing thoughts, ideas and viewpoints about all sports, any number of subjects and issues, learning stuff from other posters and having fun. There are threads by subject matter within the forum for doing this. Keep the threads on point.

NB: The rules above are not intended to build a case to ban a poster. There are consequences for rule breaking as specified below. That's as far as it should go. Only the most egregious and persistent rule breaking would cause the moderators to consider a ban.

Due Process.

(1) The forum has 6 moderators. Jeff Buchanan, Jon, JD, Hannibal, Oracle, Entropy. None of them want to moderate adult posters who should know better. There may be posts that break the rules.

(2) Posters who, at the sole discretion of a moderator, break a rule will be given a warning post that will site one of the rules listed above as the reason for the deletion.

(3) If the rule breaking behavior continues, a moderator can remove an offending post and any ensuing post that whines about that action. If a moderator removes a post(s) the reason for the removal(s) will be posted with the removal notice that appears in the thread. This should be the end of it. Man up, take responsibility for breaking the rules. The forum moves on. If not, see below.

(4) A poster who has had a warning or a post(s) removed can certify a question by PM to any moderator about that action. Do not complain about the action or attempt to make your case in the forum/threads. Moderators shall do their best to address the question within 72h. At the end of 72h the majority opinion of the moderators responding will be the answer.

(5) Banning a poster for egregious and repeated rule breaking requires a unanimous vote to ban from all 6 moderators. We don't anticipate this will ever happen.

      I just unstuck the old one, so that can fall to the bottom and use for later reference to find people's old dumb posts, to ridicule them with.

        It wasn't until 14 years later that he got that trophy.

                John Beilein says Jumpman switch exceeded expectations

                Zach Shaw - 20 hours ago 0

                If the celebrations, Tweets and booming apparel sales didn't give it away, Michigan is very pleased with its switch to Nike and Jumpman apparel. And one of the more instrumental components to the switch counts himself among those ecstatic with the change.

                Michigan basketball coach John Beilein, in an interview with "The Huge Show," unpacked the fallout of the apparel switch, noting that — though his team was one of the Wolverines' most successful teams during the Adidas era — he has already seen an impact in recruiting and fan excitement around the program.

                “The launch of the Jumpman went beyond where anybody even expected it to go,” Beilein said. “I think any time that you have something unique like that, it’s helpful. Some kids will really love the Nike gear, the Jordan gear more than others, (but) we just had five guys drafted in the first round in four years, so the Adidas brand was OK too.

                "But this is still something that is so unique, is tremendous, and we anticipate a lot of interest in Michigan. … I think it will help us a great deal."

                Beilein also revealed that he first caught wind of the potential switch to Jumpman apparel on Fourth of July weekend in 2015, before Michigan officially decided on a new apparel provider. Then-Interim Athletic Director Jim Hackett called Beilein to ask for his input, and after some research on the booming apprel industry, the coach fell in love with the idea.

                “Jim Hackett called me and said 'It looks like we could be going to Nike, what do you think about Jumpman and going to Jordan gear?’ And I knew little about it, but not a lot, so I called my assistants and we did our research. I called (North Carolina coach) Roy Williams and (Georgetown coach) John Thompson.

                “I wanted to make sure it was the right thing. Yeah, it looks fashionable and looks great, but is it going to work for us? Are we going to be able to get enough of what we need? And they all said ‘Absolutely.’ ”

                From there, Michigan added women's basketball and football to the list of its teams to be outfitted by Jumpman apparel, and the gear debuted August 1 as a staggering success.

                Beilein said that football has gotten the bulk of the gear so far since its season is first, but noted that Jumpman apparel is already thriving with the basketball team as well.

                "We love it, it’s terrific our kids are comfortable," Beilein said. "I think it’s a tremendous addition to what is already a great brand here at Michigan."

                    Whoa - 1/16 to 2/17. It's almost all packed into that. Should be a pretty easy finish though, so hopefully they're trending up by early March after taking some lickings.


                    • #11
                      Yeah, hoping for 4-4 during that brutal stretch. 5 of 8 are at home.

                          They play MSU twice in a 8 day stretch.
                          I put my phone on "airplane" mode, and now its in a holding pattern over Atlanta

                            That would be damned impressive.

                              Split against the big three (Wisky, Indy and MSU) and beat Illini and OSU at home that gets you to 5-3 in that stand. Beyond that Maryland is probably a loss and there is another loss in there as well. Add in a split at the Madison Square event along with one more (Texas?, Va Tech?, UCLA?) loss. That would be a very good season (prolly top 5 seed heading into B1G tourney?), but I don't think it is an unreachable one.
