I did not make this headline up
Does anyone have a free stream for this game? Is it on t.v.?
It'll be interesting to see how this affects his game.
Will be team MVP over McGary, write it down
Michigan assistant Jeff Meyer related the latest of Robinson’s can-you-believe-it feats on Tuesday morning. During an interview with WTKA's Michigan Insider, Meyer explained that U-M players’ vertical leaps are measured on a Vertec. The apparatus is a straight pole with movable tabs on one side. Players jump alongside the pole, reaching for the highest tab they can touch. The highest tab moved accounts for the individual’s vertical leap.
Michigan’s Vertec measures up to 12 feet, 3 inches.
Michigan needs a new Vertec.
“We’ve not had anybody inside our program get all 12 feet, 3 inches -- that was until Glenn Robinson,” Meyer said.
Robinson stands 6-feet, 6-inches tall. He has an expansive wingspan, but is not a pterodactyl. He’s always had a lengthy reach and shake-your-head leaping ability (just ask Minnesota). This latest feat, though -- reaching 12-foot-3 on the Vertec -- is a product of Robinson’s offseason work.
So, my copy of the new Hail to Hoops & Hockey book arrived last night and I promptly read through the whole thing. With the Football Bye Week I figured it might be a good time to talk about just how excited you are for Michigan Basketball.
When I was a student I went to 1 basketball game (they lost. And were not good). I went to 3 last year and I live in Chicago. Michigan baskteball is back to being an event - and a damn good one.
The preview mag posits that there are maybe 5 teams that have as much talent as Michigan. Michigan will start lottery picks (as of now) at the 4 and 5 (or 3 and 4) with another great recruiting class coming in.
We also return a great shooter - and not just a (drink) who according to the coaches this morning on Michigan Insider has gained about 20lbs of muscle and added 6" to his vertical.
How good do you think this team will be? Can they win the B1G or the B1G tournament? What are you most excited for with Michigan Basketball?
