LIST OF WWE PERSONNEL?!?
Per Jeff Goodman at CBS, Trey Ziegler will attend Pitt next year.
I know we never contacted him but I think Pitt is getting a solid player - big for them after an unusual down year.
It's officially official. Per UMHoops, the 6'1" 180 lb Crown Point / Northfield Mount Hermon (Mass.) PG has committed to Michigan. He is the fourth commit that Wayne Brumm, head coach of the SYF Players AAU team, has sent Beilein's way (GRIII, Bielfeldt, McGary).
Also, not mentioned on this board much, but I think he'll be 19 or 20 when he steps on campus since he did a year of prep school. So, while we'll have 4 freshman coming in, three of them will not be true freshman from an age perspective. That's a big deal when it comes to muscle/size for college athletes.
For anybody who was a fan hoping for a contender during the Vitale debacle and the home grey uniforms at the Silverdome in the early 80s, Isiah Thomas is revered. He probably saved pro-basketball in Detroit. In my mind the greatest pure point guard ever to lace them up.
His post-Piston's career has been a succession of "I can't look" events save some decent drafts with the Raptors and a good couple years coaching the Pacers. I want him to come home now. Davidson is gone and this new owner became a fan during the 80s. The Pistons are dull and irrelevant and the Captain seems pretty rudderless. The two parties need each other IMO. Find the man some job with the organization where he can help give some life to the Pistons.
Link on today's firing:
To focus on the positive, check out his dual with Bernard King in the 84 Playoffs. No one his size before or since could take over a game like he could.
Based on NBADraft.net he is predicted to go as the #39 overall pick (9th pick in the 2nd round) to the Denver Nuggets. DraftExpress gives him the #40 overall pick (10th pick in the 2nd round) to the Boston Celtics. Doesn't seem like he is going first round, I hope he is back!
This was updated Yesterday morning, just in case you were wondering when it was posted...
With the ongoing Trey Burke saga(please stay), I think we all need a good laugh at Ohio's expense. The following photo is Jared Sullinger in a dress. Now MGoBlog do what you do best.
