further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
Ford's list of top 30 picks for this year, released yesterday (didn't see it here yet, going back 3 pages). He says list is not a mock, just the 30 best candidates for now.
Has Burke as 3rd best PG, calls him "best in college right now", but wishes he was taller.
States GRIII's athletic ability, solid season, and perimeter play has scouts noticing.
Help Coach Beilein by voting for The St. Louis Center in the Infiniti Coaches' Charity Challenge. He is currently well behind Thad Matta. By voting, not only will you be supporting a good cause, but you will also aiding the effort to beat Ohio. Need you more incentive?
Mod edit: Took the OT tag off. Probably not worth the time to do it, but titles are a "thing" for me. Quick reminder: anything regarding Michigan the school, Michigan athletics, Big Ten or future opponent athletics and Ann Arbor topics don't require a tag. Also, I voted. Thanks for posting, OP. JGB.
Taking a look at what's to come next year, an under the radar Terrapins team barely pulled off a victory against the same Wolfpack team that knocked off Duke this past weekend.
Who knows what the move to the B1G will do for their program and what it means for us, but halfway into the season they've shown that they're worth a second look for this year’s tournament. The next four games should really tell what direction the team is going in as they'll face UNC (@ Chapel Hill), Duke (@ Cameron) and home against a scrappy FSU team.
MSU up 5 with 1:27 to go and the ball. A Nix and-one put a big dent in the Lions' comeback. However, tens of Penn State faithful are still cheering for the upset!
Edit: PSU pulls a PSU, all fan in attendence are disappointed.
Next: Purdue @ Nebraska
Purdue is one of those teams that will be annoying. They've already beat Illinois and I suspect they'll beat one or two more of the top 5. They come to Crisler in 8 days.
Via Detroit News, Pistons' Andre Drummond could rank as 'greatest teenager' in NBA history in terms of PER (Player Efficiency Rating).
Using the popular metric system PER (Player Efficiency Rating), Drummond's PER of 21.9, if it keeps up, will be the highest for any teenager in NBA history. Higher than MVP's LeBron James and Kobe Bryant, as well as Carmelo Anthony and Tracy McGrady.
If Drummond played 36 minutes a night, his averages would look like this: 13.0 points, 13.3 rebounds, 3.0 blocks and 1.5 steals, with 59.7-percent shooting.
I know Player Efficiency Rating is only one way to measure a player's ability - Most would agree that LeBron and Kobe had better teenage seasons than Drummond. Still, it's nice to see Drummond doing so well so early in his career, when many feared he was a potential bust. I know it's still early, but with Drummond and Monroe continuing to improve upfront, the Pistons should be back to being consistent playoff contenders in the next few years.
I hope it's Appling and Harris. That would cripple their team.
