Mike Spath points out that doing an interview for the official site is a pretty good indicator he'll be back.
Is this even fair? How did anyone let this happen? Did anyone even know about this?
Apparently there was something called the World University Games, and the USA team won the gold medal in men's basketball. Apparently that was the first time in years since that has happened. And apparently no one cares, either way.
But really weird: Bill Self was the coach of the USA team this year, and the team was entirely made of KU players, exceot for one guy from SMU.
So... if Jim Harbaugh did this for football, you can guarantee the SEC would be screaming about violations up the wazoo. And certainly there are limits on basketball teams having foreign travel in the off-season -- it's one time in four years, right -- so did Self just massive end-run the rules?
I mean, kudos to him for getting away with it. But...seriously?
Michigan will take on LeMoyne in the 2015-16 season.
Patrick Beilein was hired as LeMoyne's head coach recently.
It will take place on Friday, November 6. The night before Michigan Football's home game against Rutgers.
That Michigan-Le Moyne matchup will be on Nov. 6 in Ann Arbor.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) July 13, 2015
With that November 6th date, it looks like it will be an exhibition game.
Long story short: So a couple days ago Clippers free agent center DeAndre Jordan said he was going to sign a contract with the Mavericks.
Then today the Clippers decided they really wanted him back. So Doc Rivers and a few of the Clippers players came over to DeAndre's house...and are staying with him until midnight tonight when the free agency deadline ends (or something, don't know).
Which is basically a hostage situation to prevent Mark Cuban/the Mavs from stopping by. Or a friendly slumber party with your old (and future?) teammates. Weird. The NBA is really weird.
Also this tweet is pretty funny:

Per the LSJ. In line with typical punishments at UM and MSU alike, I'm sure he'll miss the games against Hillsdale and Concordia and be ready to go for Louisville and Florida.
