Introducing Sponsored Memberships


What a fantastic idea! There is nothing better than to help other people. Is there a way to send a gift and then you can determine where it goes? If yes, can you send me your email address and we can correspond that way?


Do you mean that you don’t have someone in mind you want to gift a membership to but just want to sponsor that gift too?

You can just forward me the confirmation email ( with the gift code if you want to do that. I’ll make a note of that in the post.

Sounds good! I know that I don’t comment much but I just wanted to say keep up the incredible work. I check the website on a daily basis both during the season and off-season. I love reading the game-by-game analysis recruiting outlook and all of the player pieces you do. As both a basketball coach and a fan, you provide great analysis. Any chance you can provide more video breakdown on any sets or special plays (out-of-bounds)?


Since I am paying $8 per month as a way to express how much I appreciate what you do, could you use that to provide a spot for someone off the lottery list? If so I am good with that.

Awesome, would love to help. Don’t know what I’d do w/o UM Hoops. But like others have mentioned, I don’t know who I’d give the subscription to. I live in Lawrence, KS, so I’m surrounded by Jayhawks. I literally do not know one other Michigan fan (not depressing at all). So yeah I’ll forward my confirmation email to also.

Wanted to give a shoutout to @Toni_Newell, @jbeck224, @ronniemac8, @Bjudkins, @mmulholland and @Roy_Flan who have all sponsored at least one membership!


Got an e-mail from Dylan this morning that I received a sponsored membership. Thank you to my sponsor! I’ll be sure to pay it forward in the future if I can.


more of a lurker than a commenter - but love the site, keep up the great work (to both Dylan & team and to the rest of the umhoops community)


I haven’t been active lately due to ongoing health problems for which I am underinsured, but I’d like to thank Dylan for this idea (and of course the great content) and give thanks to all of the generous sponsors as well.


This promotion is still going on if you want to chip in. Shout out to @meatblizzard @Tshemanski and @Logan for joining in and sponsoring memberships!

If you signed up for the sponsored list, make sure to check your email for information on your membership.
