NEVER LEAVE COLLEGE:
...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.
Apparently noone told Trey we found him a back-up. I wonder if that was intentional. Ha.
i dunno if albrecht has his LOI in yet, which would preclude anybody from michigan publicly commenting on him. GRIII, McGary, and Stauskas already have their LOIs in.
blame the ncaa.
Why blame the NCAA? Because they have the nerve to set up rules for when players can sign their LOIs? How dare they!
Anyway, the spring signing period doesn't start until Wednesday, so Albrecht is still a verbal commit at this point.
i blame the ncaa because of their inane and draconian rules about commenting (even if its merely a simple congratulation or even acknowledgement) on players who've committed verbally but haven't signed.
and fuck the ncaa regardless.
Akunne (sp?) may be a more likely backup than Spike next year. I don't necessarily think he is ready to come into a physical conference and play significant minutes at this point.
HE KNEW LAST WEDNESDAY AND HE LET ME WALK IN CIRCLES UNTIL I WAS DIZZY?
So I guess everyone who was hating on the Sullingers (saying they were pushing Trey to go pro) owes them an apology.
If you're refering to me I didnt "hate on" the Sullingers...I simply posted what I had heard from several people down here in Ohio. Super cool that it went the other way but posting that they were advising Trey to go pro now due to Jared's drop in draft status year on year is hardly "hating on" them.
Hopefully you can lead this team to the Final Four next year and find yourself in the lottery
Why did no one ask about how life-altering the Hollis tweet was?
No one could understand the jive.
Looks like Vogrich and Bartelstein are agonizing over this presser. Funny to watch. Good to put Trey in front of media to clear the air, but wonder why the other players don't have similar announcements to make? Staying should be the expectation, pressers should be held for the unexpected - guys leaving school early.
Good to hear what he had to say and I understand why his teammates were there (to show their support), but did it seem a bit awkward and focused on one player to have just Burke speak about his stuff while his teammates stood there? Great to have him back and better to hear that he had a level head on his shoulders the whole time. It sounds like it might be for only one more year, but that year could mean everything to us and him.
Agreed. One more year is an opportunity for one more championship. I'm happy to have him around.
What do you think Vogrich is thinking in the background?
"F**K DUDE, I'M SO HUNGRY! I hope they got Chicken Brocolli Bake for dinner today...."
"Dude, we standing around here for this? Mass Effect 3 DLC comes out tomorrow. Gotta go and buy me some spectre packs."
MATT VOGRICH IS FUNNY AS FUCK IN THE INTERVIEW ahahhahahha
#1 Vogrich is funny back there...very "a.d.d.-like"
#2 I mentioned in another thread...Satch Sullinger would NEVER tell Jared, Trey or anyone else close to him to leave college in this situation.
#3 Spike is going to be a great addition to take some minutes from Trey so he's not as tired late in games
#4 I love Trey's demeanor, I said this in another thread as well...he's very prefessional in everything he does. This presser was no different. With that said, I think we really have to guard against a sophomore slump ala Hardaway. I think it's different for Trey because he plays a position that is so vital and important. But when you're so close to the NBA, it can be tough to come back. I think you can feel you're better than much of the talent you face and you lose some of that fire. I think it's easier to get complacent and not work as hard...hope this doesn't happen with Trey. On or off the court.
#5 This team has a chance to be GREAT, not good, GREAT next year.
is it just me or does it look like he smoked a joint before this presser and now he's bugging out inside?
can you buys those sweet practice jerseys that say "michigan basketball" on them? i looked in the mden but i couldn't find them...
trey sounds very presidential.
When watching that video I thought Vogrich was hilarious. After seeing these comments, apparently I wasn't the only one who thought Vogrich acted like Ashton Kutcher's character on That 70's Show.
I didn't even notice Vogrich but now he's killing me! lol
At tomorrow's banquet, will Smotrycz/Christian/Brundidge be there? It may sound like a strange question since they're transferring, but they were part of the team that's being honored.
Let's go win a championship!!
I thought we were going to be in last place? What the heck? Is Jordan signing with us?
Why is your dorm room so damn messy?
I hesitate to post this given the source, but Mark Snyder provided a possible explanation:
He left Ann Arbor to head home to Columbus, Ohio, for the holiday weekend with his family -- cleaning out some of his dorm room because it was approaching the end of the school year anyway -- and the time spent there reinforced his shifted decision to spend another year at Michigan. [emphasis added]
Instead of a Free Press link, see this link for USA Today, which picked up Snyder's story.
Snyder also "helpfully" points out that "Burke could still change his mind before the official April 29 NBA early entry deadline."
The entire time I was hoping Vogrich would approach the podium after Trey finished and announce that he too would be returning for another season.
i love you trey
