I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
Revisiting BBall recruiting class
During the mich vs OSU game they had a graphic up about mr basketball from Indiana...since '06 every winner (besides Jordan hulls, kind of) has done big things in college. Is Zak Irvin next? He's the favorite...
Isn't the author the same guy who had us out of the top 40 in his preseason rankings? He is still claiming we should not have been in the top ten.
So he was wrong. You can't make a claim, have evidence come to light of the contrary and then insist your original claim was correct. Or rather you can't do this and expect me to treat whatever you say with any credibility.
He seems oddly disparaging of a freshmen class that has blown every other one out of the water in college basketball. First he claims the freshmen are primarily good because of the situation they stepped into, but then says that they have helped improve Trey Burke.
He was wrong, admits it, then at the end of the article tries to go back to saying he was right due to Trey Burkes improvement (had no idea his numbers improved that much).
"Bottom line: Michigan deserves to be praised for performing like a Top 10 team this year. But the Wolverines have exceeded expectations to accomplish that. The freshmen have performed above and beyond all expectations. And Trey Burke has improved tremendously from last season. Michigan’s defense still isn’t quite Top 10 caliber. But for a group this young to have the #1 offense in the nation is truly an accomplishment."
They have exceeded expectations in that they're a top 5 team instead of a top 10 team.
will beilien be in contention for the real, elite 1 and done players- going head to head with kansas, kentucky, et. al?
any surprises in next 1 or 2 classes?
