stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
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?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
Per Jeff Goodman at CBS, Trey Ziegler will attend Pitt next year.
I know we never contacted him but I think Pitt is getting a solid player - big for them after an unusual down year.
Good for him, still think it is interesting we never even contacted him
I thought he'd have a great chance to contribute right away to this team. Glad he's out of the B1G though.
Good luck to him. Pitt is a solid program.
Woulda been more solid if they coulda held on to Coach Graham. Illinois or Indiana should've went after him.
How many times have you been on the freeway and had someone fly by you at 100 mph then end up 2 cars ahead of you at the off ramp? What's the point? -Mark Harmon
Graham, as in the football coach? You know that we are talking about basketball right?
Hahaha I know right?
Wear Maize! Go Blue!
He's going to Arizona?
"I love him, he's a great coach, he's a great mentor, he's a great friend. He's every single thing you want a college coach to be, and he does it flawlessly." -David Molk
I'm with Woodley. I'm still bitter about Meyer's antics mentioned in the article.
Thanks Thorin/Mgovideo for avatar
Good luck to him, I agree with rman that he is a very solid player and I would not have minded seeing him in a Michigan uniform but Pitt is a good BB school who have produced some 1st rd picks in the past. He will be fine!

won't be mine. … Quote it. Let them
Seems like his breath just be really stinky or something because I don't see the basketball logic in not going after him with the full court given our current situation.
He's not a point guard. He's a very similar player to Hardaway Jr. and the same year in school. We don't have a big need for a guy at that position, especially given that he's used up two years of eligibility already.
with more guys on the way. It was smart to go after him, we have better use for that scholarship.

It's possible Hardaway and Burke will be gone (although Bruke may be gone this year). Even if he did sit out this year, I'm sure we could have used him to fill the scoring void. I'm surprised no one is worried about what the team is going to look like next year.
I LOVE MICHIGAN
He also has to sit out next season. He may be a good player but bringing him in wouldn't do much to address our current situation.
Eating is murder.
It's possible he won't have to sit out if the NCAA grants him a waiver, which he's applied for since CMU fired his dad. I'm not sure what the decision process is on the NCAA side but it seems like a circumstance that may allow him to play immediately.
But the NCAA isn't granting hardship exceptions for coaching changes. I believe they once did, but they have denied waivers like that for awhile now.
than just a coaching change. It was his dad. Kind of puts Trey in a tough situation. A good argument could be presented as to why it would have been a hardship to remain at CMU.
All right Lemmings. Bring the heat.
IU ran into a crunch with their wave of early commitments last year. I'm personally glad he went out east. I think he's going to be even better than his ratings suggest.
Isn't he the same guy who reported that Burke was definitely leaving? A story that no other news organization has reported and is, by all accounts, not confirmed? Maybe we should wait a week or so before we know for sure Ziegler is going to Pittsburgh.
I compulsively downvote any usage of "lol".
Goodman usually does solid work at CBS. He might have jumped the gun on Trey, but we don't yet know if his "sources" are correct or not. Sometimes, we have a tendency to want to "shoot the messenger" in situations like this, but Goodman is a solid basketball guy. He either works fanatically hard, is a great curator of information, or both.
Besides, he also said in the same article that Michigan was looking at Spike Albrecht. He did sorta nail that one.
Choosing Pitt over the ACC keeps their dominance down. It helps he didn't pick any big ten schools either. The facuilities are great at pitt also. New and well designed.
Ironic he was looking at UCLA and Pitt too. Holland coached at Pitt before leaving for UCLA and Dixon coached under Holland before becoming the head coach. Zeigler stayed consistent at least.
Pitt will be in the ACC when he's eligible.
It's not ironic that he was looking at UCLA and Pitt. His dad and Dixon were assistants together under Howland at Pitt.
Pitt is in the ACC...
Any chance that his dad may get a job somewhere else? Maybe as an assistant at Pitt or another bcs conference? Or as a head coach somewhere else?
Still haven't heard about his father.....I bet dollars to donuts he will be an assistant.
You will never pass the field of 32, but good luck.
All in for some manball.
