fair point that
Per Brendan Quinn. Not good news
Alcohol related offense -- apparantly tried to conceal a bottle of alcohol. Interestingly enough, Yogi Ferrell was also cited for underage drinking and attempting to enter a bar with a fake ID, but he didn't get kicked off.
Figured I'd get this in early in the morning, it'll just get buried by REAL FOOTBALL CONTENT.
He looks like Eminem in that halftime interview,,,
Didn't see this posted yesterday but Spike was in the gym shooting jumpers for the first time since his surgeries. I'm sure he has a long way to go, but nice to see him jumping some and this makes me more optimistic he can be on the court for the start of the season.

This is a great loss.
One of my favorite NBA players growing up, and a key playmaker and team mate of the great "Dr." Julius Irving.
57% FG Pct over career.
RIP "Dr. Dunkenstein", and "Sir Slam"
And many a backboard were destroyed that way I can tell you.
Purdue and Maryland back to back? Ugh.

Not huge news, but maybe something to help fill the lull following the close of OT season:
According to Adam Zagoria <link> Bryce Aiken, 2016 point guard from Elizabeth, NJ, is planning a visit to Michigan this fall. Zagoria reported a 10/8 visit; MLive picked up this story and reported 10/10 <link> . . . hence, "tentative." Either way this would be a few days before Miles Bridges' 10/12 visit.
Aiken has shot up, literally, in the past year or so. He was 5'-9" in 2014, but is up to 5'-11". And he hails from St. Patrick High School, which is where Kyrie Irving and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist played. I really like his quickness, change of speed, and hesitation moves. Seems to be a good shooter. . . based on highlights <link> <link>.
His other scheduled visits are: Harvard, Seton Hall, Miami, and USC (he recently cut Illinois from his list). So we look to be strong contenders.
Aiken particularly notes that at Michigan he "will be placed on a platform to play in front of thousands to showcase my game" and he cites our recent record getting players drafted.
I'm really happy that Beilein is keeping our options open at the uncommitted positions.
