this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Here is a brief preview of the men's baketball game tomorrow versus the Mantova Stings, the last game in their Italy tour: http://www.stings.it/stings-vs-michigan/
It's written in Italian, so use Google Translate to read it in English. And reading this through Google translate, the interesting take aways are:
- Michigan is one of the best teams in history
- Jordan Morgan to the Timerwolves summer league is the only NBA player mentioned from Michigan
- Caris LeVert will be next year's #1 draft pick
Michigan is simply one of the best and most constant teams in the history of NCAA Division I as demonstrated by the results obtained in the last two years under the guidance of Coach John Beilein: Final NCAA Tournament in 2013 and victory in the Big Ten (regular season and tournament) with reaching the Elite 8 in the NCAA Tournament in 2014.The University of Michigan has 45,000 students and the matches played by the Men's Basketball team are the most watched American TV in the NCAA.Numerous college athletes have also landed in the NBA, the last one was Jordan Morgan called to participate in the Summer League in Las Vegas with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Another player in the spotlight is Caris LeVert, 1st choice next to the NBA Draft, which the public will be able to see Mantua play tomorrow night. Along with the latter, even Zak Irvin gave the show in friendlies earlier in Vicenza; the young guard has an average of 42% in the three-point shot.
Hey, all. Never posted here before, but often comment on the front-page stuff. Of all the places I frequent on these grand wide Interwebs, MGoBlog is the richest, smartest, most soccer-wise community by a mile. For those of you who haven't seen me around, or didn't know, I write a Lions blog--and today, posted there about my trip to 1994's Italy-Nigeria quarterfinal. I then tied it back to the Nats' 2010 run, and the aching feel of familiarity it had with Lions fandom. If you're so inclined, you can check it out here:
I have braced myself for the surely-coming negbang onslaught.
