landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
It seems the repairing of the links to Fab five has started. CW's picture now appears in Crisler. I am not sure how to feel about this. He did hurt the program, but also one cannot deny the fact that Fab five put UM basketball on the map.
So the UNC academic scandal -- which is outrageous, for an institution of that supposed quality -- goes back to 1993. http://espn.go.com/college-sports/story/_/id/11752073/north-carolina-tar-heels-academic-fraud-compounded-inaction-lack-oversight-chancellor-says
If they start vacating UNC wins throughout that period... I don't know if it goes back to the 1993 championship game, but... depending on the timing of events, that potentially could vacate their 1993 championship.
If they vacate a championship, does the other team get the championship? Or is it officially a year with no champion?
And let's compound the problem. For a long time, we officially weren't in that championship game either, due to C-Web. But that 20-year ban is over, right? As of today, were we officially in that game -- is it in the media guide, etc.? I do think we can hang the banner for being in the Final 4 that year (although I understand we haven't done that yet). If as of now we officially were in that game, and if UNC now officially was not, can we now get awarded the championship?
And last question. Would we want that banner anyway?
According to himself (@alexcook616) on twitter, Alex Cook (no relation to this Brian Cook) is joining the staff this fall as a basketball writer. If you've followed him on Twitter, Alex has lots of good content, including very interesting "player comparison" charts as to what to expect from the new crop of freshmen.
Give him a follow and look forward to even more (He's not replacing Ace, but joining Ace's coverage) quality Hoops coverage going forward.
Alot of Cazzie on last night's 30-for-30. He was one of the best....1965 College Player of the Year; drafted #1 by the Knicks in 1966. All-Rookie team his first season - averaged 16.9 points that first year and 18.3 his second year. Won a World Championship in '69-70.
Jalen and Bill Simmons have been releasing their team-by-team previews for each NBA club and the Sacramento Kings version discusses Nik Stauskas quite a bit. They both seem to agree that he'll be a good pro, but he's not necessarily on the right team at the moment.
Should be interesting to watch his development (plus Mitch + GR3's) going forward.

So apparently Michigan plays there first exhibition game against Bowling green on November 1. The catch is that fans cant attend and no statistics are recorded. A team can play open exhibition games or "secret" games. Any ideas why Beilein would want to do this now? Discuss
