Nice article: LINK.
Thanks for posting.
Everett Cook's story got picked up by the NYT? Impressive.
Cook now just works for the NYT. His first assignment ended up being the Mets perfect game (or no hitter?) last year.
"“You know you beat a really good program, and you know that it gives your kids this credence that ‘Man, we can play with a lot of people because there aren’t many people that can come in here and win,’ ” Michigan Coach John Beilein told reporters after the game."
It seems to me that, despite the fact that the conference schedule is an absolute bear, the win in Madison should hopefully serve as a huge confidence booster as Beilein indicates and a sign that we have regrouped very well without McGary and with Burke and Hardaway now in the NBA. If you can beat Wisconsin in Madison, I would think as Beilein seems to think that this bodes well.
I remain cautiously optimistic that this team will continue to grow. So far, I am very impressed with what Beilein has been able to do. The in-season player development has been terrific to observe.
I hope coach Hoke is noticing the same things we are.
What should Hoke be taking note of? Our ball movement? Weakside defensive rotations? I'm not sure how applicable those things are to the gridiron.
Basketball on grass? I recall hearing that before...
Hoke should be taking note of the disappointing lack of player development that took place over the course of the 2013 season. Other than DG's reduction in INT's the second half of the season, I saw an offense that struggeled all season, a defense that struggled all season and special teams that didn't leave me excited.
I know, youth movement.
Are you suggesting that Hoke was satisfied with the progress the football team made, and that only a glimpse of the basketball team would convince him otherwise? You're not giving him a lot of credit.
I am not concerned with Hoke's level of satisfaction, only his ability to restore Michigan's football program to a level where it is capable of winning the B1G as well as the team being a candidate for the national playoffs.
NYT always the last to know.
You would think there was a 10-Page thesis entitled "Nik Stauskas Is JUST A Fucking Shooter" floating around for as many times I've heard the counterargument.
