Michigan basketball, on the way back. Go Blue!!!
Revision of Hello: Mitch McGary from November 2nd, 2011 at 9:56 PM
Its been a while since I've been this excited about the future of UM hoops! Can't wait to see what Coach B will do with this team over the next few years!
Great news for the Wolverines!!
I guess it's a big deal since I keep getting error reports from Chrome. I think a few people are logged in to MgoBlog.
I love that beer. But yeah, I keep getting errors connecting and posting right now.
What'd I tell ya
Ace on popping your "Hello" virginity
and of course Mitch for making a great decision!
Why thank you, though technically I've done one "Hello" post—Kenny Allen, though a five-star big man feels a little different than a preferred walk-on punter. No offense to Kenny, of course.
Incredible. You just replicated my first draft, in full.
I don't believe, what I just saw!
Yeaaaaaaa drink like 10 beers right now!
I love that they did it right at 5pm and we didn't have to wait all show. This is a program changing "get."
Can someone at Crisler please make room for at least 1 B1G Banner...
Also: Awwwww yeah, today's looking up already. Mmm, dopamine.
Aren't you one of the board's still-in-college posters? What the h*ll are you doing with C+C Music Factory...on cassette?!? You young whippersnappers keep your hands off my generation's music, [email protected]!
Gen-X music got co-opted by little brothers. I got a whole ton of cassettes actually, from my older siblings. Rammstein, mix tapes, Nirvana, Rush, Tool, it's like a giant time capsule from the '90s. Much easier on the ears than Top 40 radio.
This was expected. Good choice Mitch
And Billy Hunter:
Please keep screwing up the NBA so Mitch can stay more than a year. Much obliged.
Any chance the NBA's next labor deal will have any effect on the one and done?
I don't think the labor deal will have as much of an effect on potential one-and-dones as what already happened because people saw the lockout coming—a lot of players who could've entered last year's draft decided to stay in school. It should be a loaded draft next year with a lot of underclassmen coming out, and that could affect McGary's decision if he's not a lock for the lottery because of the depth of the class.
I think, but could be wrong, that he's asking if the new CBA will have a different rules concerning early entry to the draft.
Ah, I'm an idiot. And in this case, entirely uninformed—not sure if the one-and-done issue is on the table or not in terms of the negotiations. I tend to wait until the playoffs to really get into the NBA unless the Pistons are good (not so much right now).
I believe that since McGary is a prep school kid - already one year removed from his senior season of high school - even if they went to a "2 and done" system he'd be eligible for the NBA Draft after his freshman season at Michigan.
Its Mitchapalooza time as a friend texted me so...
WE'RE GOING STREAKING!!!
and now we just need a speaker city sponsered Snoop Dogg Concert
The University of Mi(t)chigan
I only had to get from Mason Hall to the Union and I still missed it!
Oh well! Go Blue!
What a feeling...
My reaction circa 5:04pm
Welcome to Michigan "White Thunder". Yes we're a little weird and we celebrate with puppets from a children's show but we'll love you forever.
First of all, mad props to the Michigan coaches and the whole team actually, as well as to Glenn Robinson Jr. They all played a key part in bringing in one of the best basketball recruits of all time into the Michigan family. I hope Tim stays around for another year and the rest of the guys continue to develop and progress like they have been under Beilein's tutelage. If McGary's talents really transfer to the college level, and if Tim sticks around and continues to get better and better, and if Big Dawg Jr. comes in and develops well, etc. etc......Final Four here we come =)
to ESPN films, Jalen Rose, and all those who participated in the "The Fab5" documentary.
And we'd be remiss if we didn't give a special thanks to Brady Hoke's golden poop, which can't be overlooked in everything it's done since he and it have come to town.
Good decision for Mitch as he wont have to compete for playing time, our offense fits well with his style of play, and he'll be playing under a staff that has proven what they can do for player development . Also, good to see that he'll have close friends playing by his side, so we know that this class will already have great chemistry from the start! Can wait to see him play in maize and blue!!!
yeah I said it, wanna fight about it?
Anybody else a little worried that he might not sign his LOI during the early signing period?
I kind of got that feeling listening to him.
/pauses celebration momentarily to consider cautious optimism
Welcome Mitch!!! Do you happen to be best friends with a certain 5* QB from Indiana? Little help here?
