I was just about to post this as well, obvious good news is obvious.
Per CBS Sports: McGary and Robinson to stay
but good news is obviously good news
...excellent news! Can't wait to see them develope into even better players next year!
Bar soap (two words though)
But because none of those words rhyme with develop.
EDIT: oops nvm I misread the post above you. my bad.
Please have Dewey actually defeat Truman this time.
If true, we have a good basketball team.
Edit: OT: But looks like the Pistons just fired Lawerence Frank
This is about Michigan.
So you use the subject line in your posts but don't read them in other people's posts?
Actually, I think a lot of people generally ignore the subject line so I can see how you were confused; but in your reply you used the subject line so now I'm confused.
He's talking about your reference to Michigan State.
Are apparently confused. The op is a post about Michigan. Not MSU.
Obviously the original post was about Michigan.. My GIF post was supposed to be the MSU fanbase's reaction to the awesome news of McGary and GR3 returning next year. Damn, tough crowd.
are an idiot. Does every post using sarcasm have to end with /s?
that there were arrests made in Boston yesterday. Don't always believe what you read or hear.
Some reports are incorrect. That's not a particularly good reason to withhold news, though.
Some arrests made in Boston yesterday..
Please don't be a buzz kill.
1- At least she is hot. So she has that going for her.
2- Wing(s) fans behind them at this TB-WSH game
3) F the caps
4) their fans are a bunch of white collar nancies who don't know sports, and are just there cause they have money to burn at one of the accepted cool things to do in dc, and this picture captures that perfectly
Sounds kind of like some Lakers fans in LA.
As a caps fan, gotta disagree with that. The true Caps fan base are dedicated and savvy fans. We probably have some of the best fan sites on the planet and certainly have the best fan base south of Pittsburgh.
Not quite as good a base as the Wings or Pens but good nonetheless. Fom my time in Ann Arbor, very few fans are as dedicated as Wings fans. That said, back on topic.....Big Puppy ad GRIII are back.....happy times......stay classy.
"their fans are a bunch of white collar nancies who don't know sports, and are just there cause they have money to burn at one of the accepted cool things to do in dc, and this picture captures that perfectly"
Yes - every sports fan in DC is a government official or a lobbyist who attends sporting events as a changeup to the opera. Stupid comment.
Top 5 team if they return? I think Irvin will be able to fill Timmy's position quite nicely. Obvious drop off at PG, but I'm excited to see Walton and Spike take control.
Burke and Hardaway leaving gives me a reason to watch the NBA!
GR3 and McGary coming back makes me smile!
Given the general media's accuracy in the past few days, I don't know if this is a good thing. I'm just praying CNN says they're going pro... then we know they're coming back.
So glad they are going to stay. Was so worried they would leave too. Can't wait for next year. It's going to be another very exciting team.
I needed the bleeding to stop! Back to Michigan, love it!
bracketology from ESPN!
They could both use another year anyways.
It makes sense. They had to make a decision. Media is reporting on that decision. They would like to have some quotes. Hold a presser and give them quotes, especially since it's two guys making their decisions. If it was one guy, maybe just draw up a statement.
of those you listed getting first round draft hype, either. Mitch and GRIII did. Quit being a bag of dicks.
Maybe it brings positive attention to the program.
I'd bet that it is the AD that is pushing for them to all have press conferences. It gets the program in the news again. Think about it. This will make 3 days this week (during a dead period where there is little news to be had) where there is a headline involving Michigan Basketball. The kids probably also like the attention.
CollegeBasketballTalk.com just reported the news as well...
What caught my eye though was this quotation...
Michigan lost Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. to the draft already this month, but with McGary and Robinson back in the fold, they should have a chance to be pretty good. Spike Albrecht, who scored 17 points in the first half of the national title game, and Nik Stauskas are both back, and point guard Derrick Walton headlines another good recruiting class for John Beilein.
Somebody seems to be forgetting that we have a FIVE STAR recruit in Zak Irvin coming in.We should be more than just "pretty good".
This is my decision, until I say it, nothing's true!

are you sure we're not a top 25 team still for next year?
Yeah, that's what I thought, actually a top ten level team IMHO.
We will do great things again next year!
This should seal up a return to the Final Four. And next year it's at Jerryworld (good news for me, I live in Arlington).
I can't think of better news on what has become a rather dreary afternoon here in southeast Michigan. In McGary and Robinson, we would be keeping two players that accounted for 36% of Michigan's rebounds this past season as well as 34% of the blocks and about 25% of the scoring together. Between who is staying and who is coming in, the coming season is not looking too bad at all.
EDIT: Meant as a reply to solo dolo
Nothing ever seals up a final four. It's the NCAA basketball tournament. Nothing is ever guaranteed.
Let's try to temper expectations from bat shit crazy to just crazy.
the sun was out earlier and it is nice and warm, but you are right, nice topper for the day if it is true. Gin and tonic, anyone??
Predicted this yesterday.
GRIII needs to be more aggressive next year.
We should definitely be very good again next year. We lost Burke who was the best player in CBB. That will be very difficult. I think that Irvin is more talented than Hardaway although Hardaway had the leadership that Irvin won't have right away.
Smart decision, boys. Another season under Beilein will do wonders for you. Now, no one can replace Burke, but if Albrecht and Walton can step up next year, we'll be in good shape.
Is there a stream of there announcement?
It's going to be live at 430 on BTN.
