Wouldn't that basically be "double-dipping," so to speak? I thought one player could only receive a scholarship from one team, so either the football or the basketball team would be charged with a scholly, but not both. How did it work with Tai Streets and Matt Trannon (of msu)? Am I mistaken?
Rivals Duke Insider conceding McGary to Michigan
You generally can't pad your football or basketball team with guys who are on non-football/non-basketball scholarships, but you can pad your basketball team with a football player. From the NCAA Division I 2011 manual:
15.5.10 Multi-Sport Participants.
184.108.40.206 Football. [FBS/FCS] In football, a counter who was recruited (per Bylaw 15.02.8) and/or offered
financial aid to participate in football and who participates (practices or competes) in football and one or more
sports (including basketball) shall be counted in football. A counter who was not recruited (per Bylaw 15.02.8)
and/or offered financial aid to participate in football and who competes in football and one or more sports (including
basketball) shall be counted in football. (Revised: 1/10/95 effective 8/1/95, 1/9/96 effective 8/1/96, 1/15/11
220.127.116.11.1 Initial Counter. [FBS/FCS] A counter who previously has not been counted in football
shall be considered an initial counter even though the student-athlete already has received countable financial
aid in another sport.
18.104.22.168 Basketball. A counter who practices or competes in basketball and one or more other sports (other
than football) shall be counted in basketball.
are wrong. See: Charlie Ward.
That's correct. Banner would be a scholarship football player and a walk-on basketball player, similar to Tai Streets in the 90's.
Banner's scholarship would come from football. but it doesn't matter. looks like Banner is going to Oklahoma.
What did I miss with Banner? Please help!
...waiting to officially buckle up.
Well, I've had my five-point harness on for weeks now. I don't know about you guys.
they what? I want Mr. McGary to come to Michigan as much as the next MBB supporter, but there is no reason to be estatic. Until he puts on a Michigan hat and announces, it is still up in the air.
Still not getting my hopes up until he says Michigan and signs during the early period. Never know what we might hear in a few days.
Not going to lie, just seeing Duke and McGary in the same topic title scared the shit out of me.
I remember watching Ward in a pick up game in the CCRB some time a year or two after his eligibility. He was amazing making layups and dunking at will, handling the ball with ease and I'm sitting there going 'oh my god why isn't he in the NBA.'
Then he started missing mid ranger jumpers and looking incredibly human. And I was like "oh that's why." He was really epic to watch before that though.
You never know what happens with kids until they actually announce and sign.
This would be amazing.
Please no Muppets unless/until he pulls the M hat. No Jinx, kindly thanks.
would go towards football since football earns more revenue, or something like that.
EDIT: Oops... way beaten. Awkward.
An - ti - ci - pa - yay - shun is making me wait! This is going to be some big happy news for the maize and blue! I have a good feeling about this!
McGary's freshman year could be a huge one for the program if Hardaway stays and Trey Burke can at least be a steady starter. The 2011 and 2012 recruiting classes have a lot of talent to add to our already experienced team. I was already excited about this season, but the season after that is looking great as well.
Also, for those saying that McGary is a one-and-done; I did see an interview saying he was looking for a good four-year college. Might mean he doesn't want to make the jump so quickly (I personally wouldn't, college is great). When asked about the NBA he seemed like it was more in the future than something he wanted as soon as possible. That's obviously a silly courtside interview so take it for what it's worth.
I am not celebrating until we hear it "straight from the horse's mouth." And make no mistake, McGary could be the "horse" that takes Michigan back to the top layer of the college basketball food chain. But I am still not getting my hopes up too much, because being a Michigan fan has been an exercise in getting hopes dashed during this entire millenium, at least so far.
This has a chance to be THE tipping point in the program's recent history.
It's exciting but I agree I want to see him sign the dotted line. Though if he picks the M hat I'd be excited.
Queme los barcos.
When asked by Dylan of UMHoops.com on who was recruiting Mitch, the big guy responded "IU, Purdue, Marquette, Ole Miss, Oregon State, Miami (FL), Cincinnati, Xavier, Dayton and Ball State. I think that’s about it."
SO happy we got in on guys like him, Stauskas, and GRIII early.
