national coach could be a bunch of different choices
here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
national coach could be a bunch of different choices
So bt your logic, the job being done by coach Adam Walsh of 0-27 Centenary Gentlemen is the exact same as that being done by every other coach in NCAA basketball. I'm not knocking Mr. Walsh's abilities, but coaches are judged largely by wins and losses and player development, and on both fronts Beilein has exceeded most UM fans' expectations this season. That is a pretty phenomenal to me.
most of the credit should go to coach Alexander. I think he was a great hire and really knows how to coach the bigs. If JB had him from the start we may have kept Udoh around. Remember the coaches trying to teach him how to shoot from the outside? We don't see that with Morgan and I think it is because Alexander really knows how to coach big men in the paint.
can still be great in my book. He's a true FROSH and with more coaching from Bacardi and others, his emergence can make us great next year.
Had Beilein been able to keep Udoh, I think Michigan would probably have playing in the tournament at least twice by now too.
i just want him to play good solid D and rebound; including the occasional offensive rebound. hopefully he can add 15-20 lbs this offseason to help toughen him up.
i'm tired of seeing novak playing against 6'10" guys on D. even the mediocre iowa bigs were able to dominate him.
a solid horford would give JB a lot more match up flexibility.
he has people around him telling him in his ears that he needs to transfer if he wants to get into the NBA. Not sure if Udoh would stay with Bacari as the coach.
however i think it wa$ more than just voice$ that made him tran$fer if you get my drift.
I think at least part of the credit for Morgan's development goes to Barari.
Morgan, Morris, and THJ are all part of my love triangle
I really hope this young nucleas all stays together and no one leaves early or gets into stupid trouble. Indications suggest that they're all bright kids likely to make good choices. Most doubt any would leave after this year, but depending on how things go next year there could be departures. Crazy, considering how little was thought of them nationally out of high school. Morris was highly rated, but Morgan was considered a big, fluffy kid who peaked early and was then an injury concern, and Hardaway was a talented kid but his name was bigger than his game.
Now? They're the biggest surprises in the conference.
Haven't had a true one, for awhile. And everytime I think about this teams future, it makes me shiver.
forget about him already?
Sims was great, but he was definitely undersized for what UM asked him to do. Morgan is a legit big, not a 3/4 forced to play "big" because of a lack of depth. But still, I feel the love.
i just love having a big man who can throw it down
i remember watching the all-guard-squad and its so refreshing to see a pick and roll finishing with morgan throwing it down
P.S. Please make him stay and get his degree.
Did somebody say "love?"
It was a road win in the Big Ten. It's where MSU lost by 20 and Wisconsin escaped with a 3 point win.
UM didn't play it's best game and got out of there with a W. This was marked as a probable L before the season. THJ had a great game. Morgan played well. There are positives, but you want to focus on it being Iowa (a bad/young team that has been improving).
WTF that is ? I remember Juwan Howard. Is Jawaan his cousing from Bahrain ?. Teamort2.
Hey teamort2. WHO THE F... is Jawaan Howard ?. Your cousin from Bahrain. I remember a Juwan Howard at UM playin along Jalen , Chris, Jimmy K and company.
Why do you have some many spaces between your commas ? and your next word ?
I think you may be an alias of teamort2, you both put dot dot dot on your curse words, both of you put extra spaces between your punctuation and your writing style is identical. When teamort2 stops posting all of a sudden Cigarro pops up? Hmm, it's pretty damn funny your calling yourself out though for spelling Juwan wrong, very clever. I'm on to you buddy.
Great game by Morgan and clutch free throws, but this team didn't give up being down 10 on the road in the 2nd half. I still think this team falls short getting to the NCAA tournament this year (I'm a pessimist when you consider the chatter about 11(!) teams from the BE getting in), but just a great season and one that gives me immense hope for the future of this program. It is scary that I'm nearly 30 and this basketball team gave me so little hope of sustained success since I was about 15 until Beilein showed up.
I always thought there was a good amount of enthusiasm about him coming out of highschool... That'd he'd be a solid workingclass big as an upperclassman. That he's doing this as a redshirt frosh is even better.
I watched him three years at my high school, and he has definitely improved a lot. I hope this means he also improved in being a clutch player in close games at the end. Often times, he seemed to be a non factor within the last three minutes. I really hope this has changed though. He's a good kid, and props to him.
When I want your opinion I will give it for you. Thanks buddy.
There is a reply button Cigarro/teamort2/MfaninOH, got it? Probably not because your about 12, but it's right there in the lower right hand corner of the comment box.
Don't you mean when you want my opinion you'll ask for it? Because saying when you want my opinion you'll give it to me makes no sense. You have got to be, no you are, the dumbest poster on this site. Congratulations. You and your alias' need to go away, like yesterday.
I'm sure he enjoys playing for his dad at CMU, but right now they're 8-18 and not going anywhere post-season while we look to be a lock for the NIT with an outside chance at making the NCAA.
