Football Display Case
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents
Don't wet your pants, he has five unofficial visits scheduled in the next three weeks.
Does anyone know if he has offers from them? Scout says he does not, and that's also the impression I get from UMHoops, but I'm not sure. I think Michigan can beat Missouri and Arkansas for his services, but I don't mind saying that I fear what will happen if the Blue Devils and Tar Heels offer him.

it's still early in his recruiting process. i'm sure he knows whether to expect offers from duke and UNC.
For basketball it's actually not that early in the process. It's still kind of early, like say the equivalent of summer for football players, but with an early signing period and fewer recruits, basketball prospects tend to get offered a bit earlier.
Now he may get an offer still from Duke or UNC, but my feeling is those schools are looking or waiting on a few others first.

My impression from UMHoops is that Missouri has been Michigan's main competition until recently. The minor NCAA trouble that their coach is in (from his time at Miami) might help make them a little less attractive, but he didn't get hit as hard as it looked like he might, so we'll see.
don't tell me what i can do to my pants!
You can do to your pants whatever you desire. Just put it up there to warn people from doing it completely in vain ;-)

Duke offers. He seems right up their alley. I mean beyond the fact that a 5 star is right up everybody's alley

He's from Michigan, we offered him early and he's already visited us. That has to count for something right?
I hate to make a comparison to Cody Zeller, but we need to start protecting our borders and keep big prospects instate. Let's hope we can land this fish

Well, if that's the case, we've already blown it, since he moved to Mississippi some years ago.
I guess Derrick Walton Jr., ranked #35 by ESPN and the leading Mr. Basketball candidate, isn't a big enough prospect for you?
so I'm not sure I understand the comparison.
Is originally from Michigan. His father lives in Michigan and mother lives in Mississippi. So you can view him as an in-state prospect.
Actually his mom lives in Michigan.
"Well my dad played at Missouri and my mom lives in Michigan, so those two schools have been on me since the eighth grade, so that is where (the rumors) come from," he said.

Woe be the day that I don't know every fact about a teenage kid's life.
Thanks for the correction though.
Could bode well that he is originally from Michigan.
Booker has already made a few unofficials to UofM in the past I think (going back to last year). He's the guy I want the most in this next class.
Is he playing on a rubber floor in the photo in the article?

UNC just offered Rashad Vaughn and is their #1 priority at SG right now. Of course that doesnt mean UNC wont offer Booker, but even though there is mutual interest, he is not their top guy. Same goes for Duke. There is mutual interest but I dont believe they offered him yet, either.

I'm sure I don't have to say this, but:
Maize Rage, you're taking notes right? I expect at least two Devin Booker chants.

I want three chants. Beginning of the game, half time, and end of the game when we beat IU.
that if he doesn't chose us that he does go out of state rather than to State.
MSU hasn't offered.
According to an article on Rivals, Devin says he has offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Michigan State and Mississippi State.
It appears at this point Michigan State has offered him even though on his actual Rivals page it doesn't show up.
...I really do not want to have to play against him for a BIG title if he goes to UNC or Duke!
I see what you did there and it makes me so angry.
I think we ride the "MIchigan offered me first, so I want to go there," deal to a commitment. A win would help too.
I'm pretty sure Booker likes MSU too. There is some type of GR connection with Booker, Drake Harris, AAU ball, and all that good stuff.
Booker is not going to be an easy get, but I think Michigan has as good a shot as anybody. Michigan is a major player again in college hoops, and an attractive destination. Great tradition, excellent program, excellent school, chance to play early, and play for a coach who will develop you and encourage you to shoot the ball. Mike McGee would have loved Coach B.
Since Devin Booker sort of reminds me of Mike McGee, Here is a little bio on M hoops legend Mike McGee. McGee never saw a shot he didn't like.
Mike McGee: The pride of Omaha North HS in Omaha Nebraska
"McGee ranks fifth in school history with his career scoring average of 21.3 ppg. He ranks second on Michigan’s all-time list with 2,439 career points (just 3 points behind Glen Rice) and first with 1,010 career field goals.
In his senior season McGee averaged 24.40 ppg which is the 8th best single season average in school history.
McGee is one of only 3 Wolverines to record four 400 point seasons.
McGee was selected in the first round of the 1981 NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Lakers. He played in the NBA for 9 years and was a member of two NBA Championship teams with the Lakers (1982, 85)."

Pretty sweet class you came in with. I liked those teams alot, even though they didn't have great success based on W's and L's
Big Ten was pretty tough in those years. 2 of those seasons Magic and Kelser and Jay Vincent were wreaking havoc in EL.
would have been if there was a 3pt line during his entire career.
