I see you Kansas.... sometimes you let an inferior program get excited when you're playing basketball and let them get the lead. Then you just come back and take it back.
That said you are a bunch of cheaters and the #Beilen2017Remember2013Bulldozer is coming your way. Prepare.
Nice Rodger Sherman write-up on Moe.
"The best part of each play is the instant after he gets the ball. He’s like a video game character that has more weapons than any person could conceivably hold in real life — he needs a second to go to the weapons interface, pick which gun or melee item is best for this specific attack, and then he goes to work."
Failed to DVR the game, like a dummy. Does the NCAA site post full games after a certain point? Where else might the full game make itself available?
Well there is some worry about Mo going back to Germany but games like today could have him going direct to NBA. Ford is moving him into the back third of the 1st round...where DJ already was. I know the media tend to overreact to 1 game here or there but for those of us watching closely - despite the relative slump the past few weeks - we could see Mo's potential. These performances just show everyone else in the national audience. Doing it vs some NBA type athletes from Louisville also will open some eyes.
I am enjoying this run but in the back of my head I see two guys @ 6'10ish which the modern NBA is built around. When DJ broke the press with 2 minutes left and dribbled nearly the whole length of the court it reminded me of something Webber did back in the early 90s. He has some good handles for a big man. Yes he needs to bulk up, "get tougher" for the NBA, yada yada but NBA drafts on potential and you can't develop size.
Ford also said last week Wilson is "50/50" on returning. With that size, outside game, and athleticism a touch above Mo, he was the one I was more worried about but Mo is again a guy built for the NBA with his outside game.
So we might need to strike while the iron is hot here. Insert "but but but they'd develop so much better in the NCAA than NBA" here.
Wagner ranked No. 40 in our Top 100 coming into tourney. Will be in the 20s when we update on Monday. DJ Wilson also helped himself a lot— Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) March 19, 2017
UM’s Moritz Wagner made A LOT of $ today. Huge game v Louisville athletes big deal for scouts. Skilled, 6-11, mobile, can shoot it, just 19— Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) March 19, 2017
People were saying in a thread the other day that it's weird and almost offensive that Harbaugh hasn't tweeted barely any support for the team during this run.
He tweeted out combine stats during the First Round game which was weird and caught attention from people including myself.
Well, here's this
Outstanding performance by Coach Beilein and @umichbball team! Terrific individual efforts today too. It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine!— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) March 19, 2017
