A quick Google search, however, reveals that he's actually a full year older than my son, so I don't feel so bad about him not yet having an offer from Coach Harbaugh.
Plus, I'm sure that my son will grow a full foot in the next year and become athletically gifted.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I'd recommend...||
...you talk to Dr. Roger Lauer. He is a neuropsychologist in Ann Arbor. Came highly recomended. Our son is entering 9th grade this fall and was diagnosed with ADD in 4th grade. He was doing well academically until this year. With high school looming, we decided to invest some time and money in to having a full evaluation. The report from Dr. Lauer confirmed much of what we had been seeing and suspected, but he put together an action plan to help get our son back on track.
His evaluation will identify ADD, learning disabilites, anxiety, depression, etc.
It's worth the time and financial investment if you can swing it.
As for some background, our son was previously getting all A's, except for a B in advanced math. My wife and I are both Michigan grads and live in Birmingham.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Which school?||
Wow. That's a lot of kids.
I'm interested to know which school your son is attending, if you're willing to share.
Our son is starting at Seaholm in Birmingham in the fall...and my wife and I just came from a meeting there to discuss his class placements.
The counselor indicated that they freely move kids up and down within the math track. Maybe you should consider moving him back a notch...and he'll do better...which will help his confidence...and then move him back up?
Seaholm only has about 350 kids per grade.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||You're generalizing...||
I understand your point about peer groups, but you can't generalize an entire school. Every school has kids who are motivated and ambitious...even in schools filled with a lot of "provincial" families.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||You are completely||
You are completely misunderstanding cause and effect. The kids at these schools are future leaders because their parents are current leaders. The schools aren't doing anything unique to prepare them. It's self-selecting. Wealthy successful people are more likely to have wealthy successful children. And these are the people who live in areas with good schools and/or send their kids to elite private schools.

I've never understood the hate for Billy Joel. He's a great storyteller and accomplished pianist. Also puts on very good live shows.

I was sitting in a lecture hall in Ann Arbor during that one. Felt my seat rumble. Realized it wasn't gas. Knew right away it was a quake.

This is great. Interesting to see some of the outliers whose on-court success is not translating to recruiting success...and those whose recruiting success is not resulting in the expected on-court success.

Thanks for posting this. I said something similar in a recent thread regarding the recruitment of Jaylen Brown (although much less eloquently and thoroughly). I've not understood those who are so upset or despondent about Austin going on a medical scholarship.

The only thing this incident makes me think of is my wife's grandmother (may she rest in peace). She always added an "s" to the names of stores or brands that didn't, in fact, end with an "s." For some reason, though, she always referred to Jameis' favorite grocery store as "Public."

One can always find exceptions to anything. Mudiay was injured and Alrxander had issues with possible rules violations. I'm a total loser so I went back and looked at the top five recruits from '08-'14. Pretty much all of them started right away and left college after 1 or 2 years.

Dude. You're crazy. He's not going to come off the bench. There's got to be someone on here who could do an analysis of top five recruits and their freshman year role. I'd be willing to bet that 90% of them start the majority of the games in their freshman year.
