“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
Ohio shooting guard Kyle Ahrens commits to Michigan State: Ahrens, a 2015 guard from Versailles, Ohio, wrapped... http://t.co/TXAtaqOymt— Spartans News (@SpartansMLive) June 6, 2014
Ahrens looked like a contingency plan if Grandstaff went elsewhere (as he did), but with the MAAR/Dawkins signings, the developments surrounding Eron Harris, and the glut of 2016 talent UM is in on, I think the coaches' plans changed. I really like Ahrens and think he'll be a good one. Knock down shooter with plenty of athletic upside. If he makes a full recovery from his broken leg, I think he could be thorn in our side down the road.
Rashad McCants, the second-leading scorer on the North Carolina basketball team that won the 2004-05 national title, told ESPN's "Outside the Lines" that tutors wrote his term papers, he rarely went to class for about half his time at UNC, and he remained able to play largely because he took bogus classes designed to keep athletes academically eligible.
McCants told "Outside the Lines" that he could have been academically ineligible to play during the championship season had he not been provided the assistance. Further, he said head basketball coach Roy Williams knew about the "paper-class" system at UNC. The so-called paper classes didn't require students to go to class; rather, students were required to submit only one term paper to receive a grade.
McCants also told "Outside the Lines" that he even made the Dean's List in Spring 2005 despite not attending any of his four classes for which he received straight-A grades. He said advisers and tutors who worked with the basketball program steered him to take the paper classes within the African-American Studies program.
You always wonder if it could happen at a place like UNC, could it happen at your school?
Following the adidas pattern of the changes they make to their Basketball uniform templates, the new one is due up for 2014-15 since they usually go 2 years and then change.
2008-09 - 2009-10
2010-11 - 2011-12
2012-13 - 2013-14
Adidas has released their complete line of catalogs for 2014-15. Here is what looks to be their new uniform template.
What backs up the claim this is this the new design is that it said they are available "at once" and the redesign will be two years from now, in time for the 2016-17 season.
Bonus: this is a jersey the Women's team will be wearing next year. WTF
There is no way in hell this is their standard Maize uniform. This HAS to be a one-off or a special alternate similar to the Bleed Out. They should name this line "My Eyes Are Bleeding Out"
Fans of the Breaking Madden series probably already have seen this. I was lucky enough to have someone forward it to me.
Bonus: A few of the comments are darn funny too.
