I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
With all of these throwback jerseys coming out with Michigan Hockey, it made me think of a one-time experiment Michigan did back in the 2008-09 basketball season.
They wore throwbacks by adidas of the 1989 NCAA Championship team against ohio for one time only. They weren't sold to the public.
I really wouldn't mind seeing these back on the floor at Crisler. They don't trigger seizures like the road legacy uniforms did back in October, and they are really accurate.
...you should be proud to have both men represent your university. What struck me most was how intelligent both them are. They actually put the student in student-athlete. They were intelligent, articulate and honest. Other notes:
- Both were very happy with their Michigan experience;
- Both had nothing but great things to say about their coaches;
- Both felt confident in the future of their respective programs;
- Novak is not nearly 6'5". He said he's 6'2". Hunwick said he's 5'6"; and
- Both read MGoBlog.
According to UMHoops, we have our fifth member of the 2012 class. He was a decommit from Ohio after Coach Groce went to Illinois. He also led his high school Pickerington Central to a state championship, this past season.

I've never heard of nor visited the site, but Alex Kline is a basketball recruiting analyst who founded the recruiting site The Recruit Scoop. It doesn't specify how long he's been doing this, but since he's only 17 and the fact that there is yet to be a wiki page written about either him or his recruiting site, Rivals must have got in on him early.
Thoughts? Well, he's young. And I wish I could have had a job like this at the age of 17. He has a huge twitter following, and he must be good if Rivals decided to actually hire him. I just hope that these kids don't start getting hired by scouting sites just to get that "in" with high schools to obtain competitive advantage over other sites. This may be the next step to taking recruiting WAY too far.
