We may have gone to the Rose Bowl in 2007 but we got embarassed. We also lost 5 games in 2005 and lost to App St in 2008. The decline started way before LLoyd retired.

Let's actually beat Sparty on the field before we get all giddy.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Well then be prepared to not play very many night games||
because MSU and OSU are out and there aren't that many programs coming with better pedigrees than BYU or Oregon State.
The thoguht that they need to be special is just silly IMO. Any night game in Septmber or October is going to have a great atmosphere.
|2 days 10 hours ago||This is weak||
so, basically, we are too cool to play BYU or Oregon State at night, and too proper to play MSU? Got it.
|2 days 10 hours ago||This concern is so overblown||
and, frankly, ridiculous. Bitter rivals play in night games all the time without the world ending. I love to rip on Staee and their fans as much as anyone, but the notion that they will burn our city down if we play a night game is just Michigan ("big brother") arrogance in full force.
|3 days 10 hours ago||No way Morgan v Doyle is a push||
and I think it remains to be seen whether Dawkins can equal what GRIII did at the 4.
|3 days 10 hours ago||This pretty much sums up my concerns about recruiting||
We don't have to recruit with Duke, Kansas and Kentucky. But there is a lot of room between there and the top 20 which as you correctly point out we haven't done in 2014 or 2015, while 2016 looks iffy at best.
I think it is fair for fans to expect more of a bump from the oncourt success from 2012-14.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Yea but Burke, Stauskus and GRIII were all solid||
top 100 prospects and clearly on the rise when JB recruited them. You could see the fit and appeal in each of them and they were targeted early. Not that the staff shouldnt be given credit for recruting them, but they are in a totally different category than LeVert who was a true find.
It is a lot harder to find pro-level prospects in guys with LeVert's profile then the other 3 that were mentioned.
Maybe, we need to get back to landing the Top 100 guys with big upsides and ability to play well early as we don't seem to be connecting with the top 25 types.

Wow. That is just an awesome statement.
|4 days 9 hours ago||Lord knows I am all for critical review||
of our favorite sports teams, but I didn't really understand the uproar about Dunaway. He's a 2017 kid with a good pedigree and a great frame. There is a ton of time for him to develop into a top tier recruit and the potential to do just that.
Compare that to the Greg Davis commit where I saw a lot more reason to question the move given the scarcity of available scholarships in 2016, the seeming redunandcy with Teske and the underwhelming profile. Those concerns may be mitigated if, as some suggest will happen and Davis takes a prep year before joining in the 2017 class.
|4 days 14 hours ago||I am with you 100% on Chatman||
much of the time he was in the game, he looked slow and lost both on offense and defense. The fact that walkons played before he did in many games says a lot. He can certainly improve, but he has miles to go before he is a significant contributor on this team.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Also, Chatman was in the starting lineup||
at the beginning of the season, based on practice. He was no where near being one of the 5 best players when real competiton began. In other words, I will beleive it when I see it with Duncan. Not saying its not possible, but we just don't know at this point.
|4 days 15 hours ago||That's pretty much how I see it except that||
One of the guys you mentioned as being on the outside will be in the rotation as I can see JB going to an 8-9 rotation with this much depth.
The main rotation will be: 1) Walton, 2) Caris, 3) Irvin, 4) Dawkins, 5) Doyle, 6) Spike, 7) Donnal/Wilson, 8) MAAR, 9) Chatman/Robinson/Wagner
|4 days 15 hours ago||Awesome!||
This seems like the best outcome for both parties.
Last year was obviously a bummer in terms of results, but we probably end up better off this year as a result as Caris likely goes pro without the injury. This year's team should be better able to compete for a conference championship and Caris should be able to play his way back into the middle of the first round.
At the moment, I think we are a likely top 5 conference team and a possible Sweet Sixteen team. With some solid improvement across the board, the ceiling could be higher.
|5 days 4 hours ago||I'm a little more pessimistic||
I'm a little more pessimistic if he doesn't return I see us more like 6-8 in the conferncs and a bubble team. Hope I'm wrong.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Yea you missed it.||
Yea you missed it.
|5 days 11 hours ago||It makes me sad for the human race||
the "bro-ness" in that clip is just too much.
|1 week 1 day ago||The only problem with that theory is that||
while those guys we've since added were all tall, none of them are very athletic.
|1 week 1 day ago||Maybe/Maybe not||
I don't think it is guaranteed that Irvin wont go early.
|1 week 1 day ago||Unless there is big man attrition coming||
this makes zero sense and makes me very worried about our chances of landing a top guard and wing player in 2016.
|1 week 2 days ago||How many other teams go to a||
How many other teams go to a championship game and have recruiting take a nose dive? I like our staff a lot but recruiting from 2014 on has gone the absolutely wrong direction.
|1 week 2 days ago||Wow. I am lost. Maybe JB||
Wow. I am lost. Maybe JB really wants to change his style of play. Or we may still get attrition. Very odd.
|1 week 2 days ago||I expect we will see more and more||
names coming up in the 2016 class as we seem to be trailing for all of our top targets except for maybe Langford and even that is no slam dunk (hoops pun).
|1 week 2 days ago||I agree. That hole thing is||
I agree. That hole thing is overblown. Sparty won't be burning couches in Ann Arbor.

Yes. Night games are awesome and the Big House has lights so let's use them!
|1 week 4 days ago||It wouldn't be a medical||
It wouldn't be a medical redshirt. Just a plain old redshirt which he is eligible as he hasn't taken one yet. That being said I have no idea if the plan is to redshirt spike or not. Either way that would not open up an extra scholarship. Now if hatch went on a medical that would open up an extra scholly
