Found November 11, 2013 on UM Hoops:
Finally, some good news for Michigan fans regarding the progress of Mitch McGary’s back injury. After the dour news last week of Michigan’s All-American sophomore possibly being held out of game action until the Big Ten season, John Beilein offered some kernels of hope that perhaps McGary will not be out for quite that long. It’s not much, but it’s the first time since McGary’s injury was announced that Beilein has spoken of substantive progress for the big man. (Photo: Dustin Johnston) “For the first time now, he’s done some workouts. He’s added some more repetitions in practice,” Beilein said during a press conference on Monday. “Over the last ten days, he’s had repetitions. He looks very good, and we’re going to continue increasing his repetitions.” This is a step up from the light shooting members of the media have seen thus far during Michigan’s practices. While Beilein’s comments by no means indicate anything definite about McGary’s possible return date, they are the firs

Michigan Basketball cruises past South Carolina State

Michigan experiments with post offense in season opener

Michigan fans have to reach a ways back in the recent history of the basketball program to remember the last time they saw a Wolverine big man consistently post up on the block and actually get the ball in a one-on-one situation. Former Michigan forward DeShawn Sims was an expert post scorer by the close of his career as a Wolverine, and throughout the 2009-2010 season, the Detroit...

VIDEO: University of Michigan President sounds DRUNK

We know a good chunk of the 100,000 or 110,000 or whatever University of Michigan fans were probably drunk on Saturday as Brady Hoke suffered his first ever home loss as leader of the Wolverines. It really sounds like Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman was drunk too when she gave this speech. Coleman was honored for her work before she retires during the Summer of 2014.  The University...

Was Michigan president Mary Sue Coleman drunk during halftime speech? (VIDEO)

Lon Horwedel | The answer is absolutely yes.  And who can blame her?  That offense could force any Meeeeeeechigan fan to alcohol.  After starting the year 5-0, Brady Hoke and his Wolverines have gone 1-3 in their last four, including a stomping at the hands of rival Michigan State and a very uninspiring loss to Nebraska in Ann Arbor Saturday. Mary Sue Coleman was...

Michigan coach Brady Hoke aiming for 10-win season

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By LARRY LAGE AP Sports Writer Michigan had hoped to close the regular season well enough to earn a shot at playing for the Big Ten title. Officially, that can't happen now, so the Wolverines (6-3, 2-3 Big Ten) have adjusted their ultimate goal this year with the conference championship out of reach. ''You got a chance to win 10 football games...

The Michigan Struggles: What’s Wrong with the Devin Gardner, Taylor Lewan Led Offense?

Despite a 5-0 start to the season, the Michigan offense didn’t seem to be taking the next step that many expected based off the flashes in 2012. Devin Gardner was still very hot and cold, thanks in part to inconsistent offensive line play in front of him. The Wolverines have since gone 1-3, losing to Penn State, Michigan State, and Nebraska. And even more concerning, their...

SC State-Michigan Preview

If its season opener was any indication, Michigan might need some time to get over the loss of a pair of backcourt stars and Mitch McGary's potential long-term absence in the frontcourt. Fortunately for the seventh-ranked Wolverines, they have another opportunity to work on adjusting Tuesday night against South Carolina State. Michigan (1-0) went into halftime tied with Division...

Three-point shooting lifts Michigan to easy victory

South Carolina State picked the wrong team to leave open on the perimeter. Michigan’s 93-59 trouncing of the Bulldogs was an endless loop of drawing the shakily-assembled defense into the paint, and kicking it out to an impossibly open Wolverine. Michigan shot 28 3-pointers on the night and made 15. They were so open they were practically obliged to take them, which they were more...
