Some pictures to make you feel better

    Michigan lost by one point in the Sweet Sixteen to Oregon. A few quick thoughts:

    • Oregon did a great job of keeping Michigan off balance. They switched up their defenses regularly, stepped out past the three-point line to defend Michigan's shooters, and played aggressively.
    • Mo Wagner picked a bad time for a drop-off. He couldn't shoot from outside, and he was ineffective on the inside. It seemed like Oregon's quickness really affected him. He can normally take bigs off the dribble, but Oregon's big guys are athletic 6'7" and 6'9" guys.
    • I guess Derrick Walton was expecting to get fouled on that last possession, but he wasted too much time. He had 9.4 seconds when the ball was inbounded, and all he did was dribble around before pulling up for a fall-away three-pointer. It's the right guy taking the shot, but he ended up having to hurry that last shot more than he should have.

    Oh well. It was fun watching these guys down the stretch. Go Blue!

    In his own words - Ryan Van Bergen

    Last week I spoke to former Michigan defensive lineman Ryan Van Bergen.  Ryan now runs his own gym in Ann Arbor.  In the interview we touch on everything from the difficulties of starting your own company to tacking Braxton Miller for a loss in front of the Michigan student section.  Ryan's passion for Michigan, fitness, and football was obvious throughout the conversation.

    Way Too Early 2017 Depth Chart: March 2017

    Back in August I took a look at how the depth chart might look in 2017 (LINK), and then I updated it in September (LINK), November (LINK), January (LINK), and February (LINK). Of course, things are always fluid, there will be early departures, there will be injuries, etc. But now that we have the 2017 class signed or enrolled early, things are perhaps a little bit clearer.

    Hit the jump for another early look at 2017.

    MLive: Jim Harbaugh wanted to be a football referee once upon a time, and more notes

    With as heated as Harbaugh gets about referees, it would be interesting to see if he could keep his cool if a coach was getting in his ear as a referee (LINK).

    Tyler Friday - DT - Ramsey (NJ) Don Bosco Prep: Friday is a 6'3", 260 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State, among others. He's a 4-star, the #2 defensive tackle, and #39 overall.

Right now Michigan has 80% of the Crystal Ball picks. He'll be in town on Sunday, March 26.

    Lee Payton - TE - River Rouge (MI) River Rouge: Payton is a 6'3", 220 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Syracuse, and some MAC programs. He's a 3-star, the #27 tight end, and #707 overall.

    Jeremy Ruckert - TE - Lindenhurst (NY) Lindenhurst: Ruckert is a 6'5", 230 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Florida State, Michigan, and Ohio State, among others. He's a 4-star, the #2 tight end, and #70 overall. He named Michigan to his top five, but 100% of the Crystal Ball choices are in favor of the Buckeyes.
