Horford and McGary injured yesterday per Beilein per Twitters
No, the MCL is a red herring. it was the butler the whole time.
It's not that rare. Players injure it from making a cut and having their leg slip, as is often the case in football.
Sometimes you don't even need to cut or twist to tear an ACL, although it isn't the most common way to do it. I remember C-Webb did it several years back playing for the Kings during the playoffs. He simply jumped (I believe it was an alley-oop or rebound) and was clutching his knee before he hit the ground.
Robinson goes to the four and Stauskus' minutes go up, that would be a nice guard heavy offense. I don't know about you guys but I'm just as excited about Stauskus as I am our other two big recruits, if not more...
How does that 6th year thing work again?
If you miss two seasons due to injury, you can get a 6th year. Hopefully it won't have to come to that.
This seems reasomably appropriate to put here because there really isn't any other place to put it: I got to tour the PDC yesterday and, not that this is news to anyone now, but that is a SWEET facility. They are still adding stuff and installing signage, and they are also working furiously on the last of the Crisler changes. Very nice.
Coach Alexander showed us how the iPads work; to be honest, when I first saw their unveiling in the PDC video, I assumed they were just sweet little high-tech toys. Something nice to have, something that would appeal to recruits, but nothing more than a fun perk. In fact they are loaded with content about opponents, teams, indivdual players, etc). Michigan players can essentially study film wherever.
To make it a little more relevant, we saw Corey Person, Jordan Morgan, and Trey Burke shooting baskets so THOSE guys are fine.
