this may be of some local interest
Kithier is a class of 2018 PF from Macomb who is ranked #123 in the 247 composite. Although he did not have a Michigan offer, he was expected to attend this weekend's Elite Camp.
With the NCAA Tournament on the Time Warner channels, this is an interesting development for cord cutters. Time Warner (TNT, TBS, CNN, etc) will have a 10% stake in Hulu. Hulu is coming out with their own online live TV service, and those networks will be included.
There is rumor that Hulu will have a basic $35 package to stream to one in-home or mobile device (I assume one at a time) and $50 for streaming to multiple devices. As a Playstation user, I probably would not jump ship from PS Vue unless Hulu has a better channel offering.
Can't make this up. UNC admits it had bogus classes that athletes took for good grades - an entire academic unit, in fact, was a sham. BUT, UNC says, it's not an issue within the NCAA's authority to punish.
Apparently, the cheating was so rampant, non-athletes benefitted too. And nothing in the NCAA rulebook says classes can't be really lame. So UNC argues, the NCAA can't punish UNC.
It's laughable. Either that UNC has the iron ballz to say this... or, that they are right. Either way, what a joke.
Sign of the times, I guess.
To piggyback on an earlier post - check out the MBB Jumpman shoes:
I would love to see that blue shoe in a low top.

ESPN projects the Pistons to finish one game better than last year, with a chance to have homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Their reasoning for only a one game improvement is the return of the same starting lineup. I personally think the bench is markedly improved and that coupled with a more experienced roster will lead to a 3-5 game improvement.
I know football season is approaching and our attention has mostly turned to the team (and rightfully so), but I find it so encouraging to see both Michigan football and the Pistons on the up and up. Anyways, just my two cents.
