|1 day 2 hours ago||Yea and JB and his staff offered the higher ranked kids first||
So that tells me they also prefer the higher ranked kids. Same was true with the last few classes. People always ignore this point when they talk about JB targeting sleepers. For the most part they have been plan B or C kids for the staff when they missed out on the higher ranked plan A kids
|1 day 2 hours ago||Just because Bamba liked that approach||
Doesn't mean other recruits will too nor does it make it an effective strategy
|1 day 2 hours ago||Why can't we enjoy what JB does well but also want him||
To recruit better talent? Those shouldn't be mutually exclusive
|1 day 2 hours ago||That's total BS||
And a really lazy excuse and I really hope it's not one that JB subscribes to
|5 days 16 min ago||Crap.||
That's a great hire. They could be beastly coming up. Too bad Crean couldn't last another year or two they deserved each other.
|6 days 16 hours ago||Not a chance||
Irvin was flawed but there is no way Livers equals his offense next year. Matthews maybe but not Livers
|6 days 16 hours ago||Yea I think that game highlighted||
Their weaknesses, but we also aren't allowed to have nice things so who the hell knows
|1 week 1 hour ago||Why was Illinois playing on the road last night||
despite being the higher seed?
|1 week 20 hours ago||Good riddance||
Gottleib's picture is in the dictionary next to the definition of douche.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yea that was a miss||
I really wanted Nance at the time. It was also interesting seeing the mention of Trevon Blueitt in the DJ Wilson comments. That's another guy I'd love to see on this team.
|1 week 3 days ago||Fuck you Chad Ford||
|1 week 3 days ago||It's not even close||
Football didn't win shit
|1 week 4 days ago||Says who?||
People don't want Sparty to win for obvious reasons but other than that I think most of us want the conference to do well.
|1 week 6 days ago||Last year he was working out with the WR's||
But it seems like there is more of a need at TE so hopefully he can block a little.
|1 week 6 days ago||Those 40 times get zero fakes||
Congrats to the staff for using real times.
|2 weeks 15 hours ago||Speaking of the Wings at the Joe||
I was thinking of catching a Wings game there before the season ends and the cheapest ticket to any game is $100 or more. That's insane. I can't believe people are actually paying that kind of money for this turd of a team in that dump of a stadium. Sorry but nostalgia only gets you so far
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||Great piece and all true||
It's unfortunate that his character doesn't always translate into results on the recruiting trail. Real doesn't always recognize real when it comes to hoops recruiting.
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||That's pretty misleading||
Your post implies that JB only targets the lower rated guys who fit his scheme. JB has also targeted a BUNCH of top 100 kids that would also fit his scheme, but he just hasn't been very successful in landing them since the 2012 class which has forced him to take more of the plan B, C and D types. Some times those work out, but they do so less often than the plan A types do.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I am glad that aren't giving up on JBB||
My totally uninformed best guess as to the starting OL: Bredeson, Onwenu, Cole, Ruiz, JBB.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yea I'm not sure if that was Brian meant to say but||
I don't blame the rest of the fab five for Webbers actions
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Screw Chris Webber||
What a ridiculous thing to say, but I guess we shouldn't be surprised coming from a felon convicted of lying.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||That has zero to do with my dislike and most others I have seen||
My problem with Webber has always been the way he lied about and stonewalled the investigation which caused it to drag on and create a ten year fog over the program. He has accepted zero responsibility for his actions, except, you know, when he was pleading guilty to lying to a grand jury. On top of all that he has the nerve to be upset with Michigan and its fans as if it was their fault. The fact that he doesn't even talk to his own teammates says a lot about the kind of guy he is.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Good question||
I think they underachieved in the regular season and over achieved in the BTT. Before the season started I had the Sweet 16 as a bar for succes so I would still love to see that, but after the way the BTT went down its hard to be upset about anything else that happens from here.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||You may be on to something||
Sparty beat Minny twice while we beat Wisco twice. So if you are Hollis and want to boost Sparty and ding us, an easy way to do that is to pump up Minny and downgrade Wisco.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Yup. I forget who it was but a coach called||
The committee out for looking at attendance when seeding teams. That is only thing that makes sense with some of the seeds.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Walton is on fire.||
Willing the team to wins at this point. Love it!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed. Some of the 2's are scarier than the ones||
Getting to a six seed would be huge
|2 weeks 4 days ago||They seriously need to bench Irvin||
Any time he shoots a three. So bad
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Exactly. Just look at Mattas record before the last two years||
They were the best team in the conference for almost a decade. JB is better at developing talent, but Matta has been a top recruiter for awhile and talent will take you far.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||That was the damndest game I've seen in awhile||
Credit to the team for completely flipping the script on their season. They are no longer a team that only wins games by shooting well. Hell of a turn around and I give them all of the credit in the world.
