I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
How do they determine who get home in this ACC/B1G challenge?

they rotate teams for home games every other year, however it seems like we played 2 in a row on the road till this year, so maybe.....thay just roll the dice, flip a coin?
In other words, I don't know either
These games are important but not as important as March. Make progress every single day and we will be just fine.
Good to have these last three games.
Have to keep pushing.
Here's hoping for a bright future. This team does try hard and I will continue to support them.
18points, 11assist, 0 turnovers. I like the way that sounds
Wow. Very impressive
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?

Anyhow, nice win! Sloppy finish, but whatever.
There was a basketball game?
There is a basketball team?!?

They got lazy at the end there, pretty sloppy. They need to correct that going forward, the B1G season is brutal.

Captain obvious, but this Indiana team looks good.
we are the SEC of basketball.

Great win, especially in come March. This N.C State team will be good. How good depends on them. They could underachieve and become a middling ACC team, make the tourney and fizzle or they could compete with Duke and UNC for the ACC title and become an Elite 8 team. The latter scenario, again, would make this late Novemeber win even better come Tournament selection time.
What will hold NC State back from being elite is their lack of depth. They essentially have a 7 man rotation and they have shown a propensity to get in foul trouble = bad combination.
Great Win. Stauskas is a baller. On another note. I got great seats from a friend. Mike Hart was sitting right in front of me. Also saw Kim English.
THIS IS MICHIGAN
Now where my money at?
I LOVE MICHIGAN

We played 30-34 solid minutes vs. a very good opponent. We definitely have to finish better. I also thought the coaching staff struggled with the subs all game.
They went with Akunne WAAAY too early and he completely killed the momentum of Stauskas with two bad shots.
It also took them waay too long to go with two bigs. NCSU was killing us inside and we brought McGary in for Morgan...then Robinson picked up a cheap foul and we brought Morgan right back in for him and that was the lineup that broke the game open.
In the 2nd half we started okay then went back to GRIII against Leslie and he was getting abused. He's also lost confidence on the offensive end. Morgan - McGary - Stauskas/Vogrich - Hardaway - Burke was our best lineup all game.
I think we're starting to see guys really find their role...the one player I'm worried about is Robinson. When you look at his face, he just doesn't seem confident like he did early on...very hesistant with the basketball as well.
With that said, we needed this win...NC St. is going to get a lot better this year and this win is going to look very good come tournament time. Not that it will matter, I truly believe that unless we get a horrible draw *knock on wood* this is a Final Four team. Just too much talent, chemistry and waves of combinations we throw on the floor.
“True loyalty is that quality of service that grows under adversity and expands in defeat. Any street urchin can shout applause in victory, but it takes character to stand fast in defeat. One is noise — the other, loyalty.”
Going back to the roles:
Morgan --- Steady inside presence...experience...pick and roll, block/charge master...needs to get more consistant catching the ball cleanly down low
Robinson --- The X-Factor (going to have to really be a consistant force)...needs to build confidence and find role on team
Vorgrich --- Gritty (trying his hardest to be Novak/Douglass, which we need)...much better defensively...scrappy...role player and has done a great job in his role all season
Hardaway --- Obvious leader...keep doing what you've been doing! All-around threat.
Burke --- See Hardaway.
Stauskas --- Perfect coming off the bench but getting starters minutes...crazy scorer...needs to get MUCH better defensively before he can be a true starter (NC St. had a NUMBER of clean shots when Stauskas was guarding the man, they just missed them)
McGary --- Energy...Tyler Hansbrough 2.0...Needs to continue to just get better in all phases
Horford --- Raw, getting better...keep doing what you're doing
Albrecht --- Perfect role player and backup PG...perfect for chemistry...needs to see a few more minutes to calm and spare Burke
--------------------------Thats your rotation------------------------
Can't forget McLimans and Bielfeldt who both can give quality post minutes off the bench.
I think this is pretty spot on minus Robinson who I think has a role already and that's as a quiet 10/8 guy who plays solid D and can guard both 3s and 4s depending on whether the opponent goes big or small. With Trey and Timmay being the undisputed #1/#2 guys, Robinson is the athletic prototype to Canadian Bacon's pure shooter.
Although, I will say that one game Little Dog is going to go for something crazy like 25/10 in a big match-up and will soon be a fixture in the lottery on mock drafts in either 2013 or 2014.
That should be "Little Big Dog"
Michigan Resurgent? Michigan Resurgent!
The beatings will continue until the uniforms improve!
I thought it was ok to put eso in for a bit, but after that tv time out he shouldn't have come back, it really took the wind from the Michigan sails
Great game. They didn't execute well once it was time to kill the clock but that isn't surprising since that's more about execution than talent and we're young. That will improve.
On another note Indiana is terrifying. To think they are missing quality players who will be playing soon is scary.
I was at the game tonight. First time ever and it was great. Crisler is beautiful. Go Blue!
I hate ohio. Thats all you need to know.
