Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
|16 hours 23 min ago||Nah||
The NCAA early entry deadline is essentially fictitious, because they can't force someone to come back to school if they decide not to afterwards. So he can basically say, "Oh yeah, I'll come back" and still change his mind until the NBA draft entry deadline.
|16 hours 46 min ago||Academics||
Stanford has pretty high academic standards, that's more likely than his dad thinks he's not good enough
|17 hours 12 min ago||Agreed.||
I think we really need to look for a 5. Hopefully we'll have McGary, but if not the 5 spot is gonna be a true frosh (Doyle) or a stretch 4 out of position (Donnal). I think if we take one of these guys, we'll be good on wing for a while.
But of course, in Beilein we trust.

|3 days 12 hours ago||Truth||
And this is certainly the place for discussing it. My original comment, though, specifically was trying to address the broader issue, and then someone turned it into a discussion about Hoke. This thread as a whole is a fine place to discuss the impact on the football team. This particular subthread, less relevant.
|3 days 13 hours ago||REALLY amusing||
|3 days 14 hours ago||Because it misses the broader point||
The issue of how the university deals with ALL sexual misconduct cases is far more serious than whether Hoke's statements were misleading (which, for the record, I think they were).
|3 days 15 hours ago||That's literally exactly my point.||
I don't care about whether Hoke was lying. I care about the fact that it took the University this long to dole out consequences for a terrible event. The whole point of my post (which you missed) is that this is disturbing completely separately from football. It has nothing to do with Hoke or the team.
|3 days 15 hours ago||For the record||
I just read the report. The Task Force actually concludes "As a result, CSG Task Force believes Brady Hoke knowingly issued false statements in December 2013 concerning the status of Gibbons." (my emphasis).
I also personally believe that he was aware when he was offering the statements, but they don't have anything besides circumstantial evidence to back it up, so it's not quite so definite.
|3 days 15 hours ago||This is disturbing||
On a much broader level than the way it affects the football team. These are issues that should be resolved much more quickly for everyone involved, not just the high profile cases.

Based on the hype we've been hearing, I think it's gonna be tough to keep donnal off the court. Certainly with horford's departure.

Especially since Bracket Matrix usually has a bias towards previous days/weeks, since it incorporates the most recent bracket from all of them (which sometimes includes brackets from a while ago).

|7 weeks 3 days ago||Respect.||
You guys are the people that I think got the most screwed by this situation. Thanks for the story, and I'm really sorry that happened.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Wrong again||
Ignorance of a policy that isn't clearly communicated actually is an excuse, both in a situation like this where the student group should be on the side of the most dedicated students and, you know, in real life. Stating that something is obvious doesn't make it true, especially when it's wrong. Those people were also there at 7am, lined up at the place the line always starts. Why was it in a different place this time? Why are there consequences that aren't laid out?
I don't like calling people out, but making an account just to trash this thread is kind of a shitty thing to do, by the way. If you're going to do that, at least inform everyone of your position in the situation (I'm assuming based on your statements so far that you are one of the maize rage core that started the second line, please correct me if I'm wrong).
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Agree/disagree||
I agree with your last paragraph; seats for this should be assigned by overall loyalty over the course of the year, not necessarily who gets there first. Implementation might be tough but I think there's certainly a better solution there.
But that's the way the system is, and a single email that says "Maize rage line opens at 7am" is not nearly enough of a warning to anyone. First of all, not closely reading one of the million emails that Michigan Basketball sends doesn't remotely classify someone as not a "responsible adult." Second of all, that's a completely ambiguous statement...why would someone not in Maize Rage care when the Maize Rage line opens? What does "Maize Rage line" even mean? And why does that mean that people there before 7am should be relegated to the back of a line of Maize Rage core members that arrive right at 7? The email mentions nothing about consequences or even gives any notice to people that they shouldn't arrive before that time.
The bridge analogy isn't at all useful here. People can tell when there isn't a bridge over a chasm. People very clearly can't tell that a line at the gate (where it's been all year) at 6:50am is not going to be whatever line is enforced at 7am.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Best Player||
Best player on the best team. End debate.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||If there was an email||
If there was an email, I didn't see it. I think if something like this is going to be enforced in the way it was, it should be made MUCH more clear...for example, it could have been explicitly laid out in the email I got saying that my claim had been cleared for the game.
It's unclear to me why the people who were there at 7 (regardless of the bull rush) were not moved to the front of the line originally, since that line was only about 20 people long when the back of the original line started rushing in just the same way down there.
Edit: Just checked my email. The only thing I see that even mentions this (and it's pretty ambiguous) is one of the emails from Michigan Basketball that says "Maize Rage line opens at 7:00am, gates open at 10:30am." I can't find anything that says anything about lining up before that time, and it's not only reasonable but incredibly predictable that this situation would occur. The AD and Maize Rage both should have had a plan in place to deal with the situation (and maybe more than one security guard in place at 6:45 am if they were serious about keeping people from lining up).
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Yep||
Out of all the people in the situation, the one who definitely handled it the best was the Associate AD.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||tl;dr||
Kidding, of course. Want to reiterate: everyone was trying to figure out the best solution for a tough situation. I disagree with the Maize Rage leader's quick decision, but definitely don't mean a personal slight or anything of the sort.

Apart from damages to the stellar reputation most around the country hold for OSU, does this hurt them at all in the eyes of the NCAA? He's still a student there, right? Any sort of sanctions or anything in order? I thought selling autographs was against the rules, but I don't really have any idea.

Road games are hard, man. Especially when the home team is pretty reliant on foul shooting...

Almost certain Harris won't pass Chesson. We need our receivers to know how to block as well as go out and catch passes, and Chesson will be light years ahead of Harris in that respect.

I'm going to be braving the storm to watch Michigan kick the shit out of northwestern at home (knock on wood, if it isn't covered by snow).
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Pretty sure||
It was still a total flop and there was minimal to no contact at all, in which case it is not the correct call. Yes, hitting a shooter after the shot goes up is a foul; no, NOT hitting a shooter is never a foul. That was my issue with the call.

Looks like a lot of wrath up in the east lansing area. Are they using number of couches burned in their demographic calculations?
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah, I get you||
It makes some sense, but I feel like you're skating over the fact that a coaching staff's ability to recruit is also very important to the team and down the line to winning. And not just in terms of getting 5-stars, but getting the kids who buy into the program and each other.
I know it looks like that's not true (us vs. State over the past few years) but that's just selection bias. Teams with better recruits do better over the long run, and our ability to recruit is pretty amazing under the current coaching staff.
I fully agree...win more, more recruits will come. And I'm with you in not being convinced that certain members of the coaching staff are the best in terms of player development/game management, but remember that is one of a few aspects of how winning programs are created.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Cheating?||

To be honest, I'm not surprised. When you drop that much weight from your freshman to senior years of high school, it's probably pretty difficult to keep it off. He didn't have the same level of structure this summer, so he put on a few pounds.
A year with Wellman and the nutritionist people should bring him to exactly the weight the coaches want. I think everyone would have preferred he could have come in and played like a stud immediately, but in retrospect that's a little unrealistic of an expectation.

Stauskas shot it twice. One went in.
Honestly, I thought Caris should have been in there more minutes to check Siva. His length and quickness would have helped, and neither Spike nor Stauskas were doing anything offensively in the second half so it wouldn't have been a drag at that end of the court. I thought Spike played great but was just not big or quick enough on D.

He puts his best players in a position to make plays. Now, I'd prefer that Burke doesn't settle for a long three as well...but setting him up on an island with a single high ball screen is what we do best on offense.
I think the latest example is when he won the timeout at the end of the first half against State with that matchup zone call on D. Excellent, excellent coaching.

Song recommendations: Keep Yourself Warm (it's a builder), Modern Leper, Woodpile.
Edit: The band We Were Promised Jetpacks is a lot like Frightened Rabbit, and has pretty much the best name ever, so check them out if you like FR.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Oh man||
Dropkick Murphys are great when you're pissed. Good choices.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||I think the video||
I think the video is much better than the song itself. The video is amazing. But many of his other songs ("Wings" and "10,000 Hours" are my two favorites) are better.
Death Cab for Cutie has a bunch of songs that I think are superior to their radio played ones, especially old stuff. I feel like a hipster now.
I listen to Lupe when I'm pissed, generally. Or old school Eminem.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||There are scouts||
At almost every game looking at somebody or another. I went to a game last year and met a Pistons scout who was looking at Morgan (of all people). I'm sure every NBA team has had a scout attend at least one Michigan game at this point.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||already chosen above||
|1 year 7 weeks ago||And||
It seemed to me that both Van Bergen and Roh grew enormously as players likely due to coaching, whether from Mongomery or the other two.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||71-69||
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Yeah||
But that was clearly kind of a fluke. It was like hitting your funnybone, except a couple degrees of magnitude worse (so about funnybone equivalent for a normal person who isn't running into 300-pound people at 10mph on a day-to-day basis). I wouldn't call myself injury-prone if I hit my funnybone on my desk once and it bugged me for the rest of the day.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||WR corps||
I think he'll be much improved this year simply from an improved WR corps. He's already got great chemistry with Gallon and Dileo, and I think one of Darboh/Chesson/freshman will give him a nice third option that helps keep the defense playing honest on the others (and possibly open up better matchups for Funchess).
In my mind, the play of the WR corps will be his make-or-break, and I think it'll fall on the "make" side of that.

|1 year 8 weeks ago||New recruiting hire?||
Maybe we got a big name for one of the new special recruiting positions (if that's happening).
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Yeah||
Ferns has been tweeting at Mason Cole a bunch:
|1 year 9 weeks ago||I think the concern||
with his arm strength is more with what you said at first: he throws a lot of loopy stuff that college-level DBs will be able to eat up.
That said, towards the end of his film there were a few 10-15 yard throws on a rope that made me feel much better about the arm strength. I think once he learns to throw off his front foot he could be excellent.
Also, he's definitely not a DG in terms of speed (no need to even think of comparing him to Denard) but he's just as definitely not a John Navarre either. He looked fairly agile for his size back there on some of the plays.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||I sort of assume||
based on what I've read about Green, I'd guess he'd do them all on his own.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||yeah||
not working for me either
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Agreed||
They aren't just stupid, they are making the exact points the article disproves. Stop talking about Johnny Football, idiots.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Awesome||
I love this stuff. I feel like since Chantel has gotten to wolverinenation there has been a lot more gimmicky recruit stuff, and I think it's generally hilarious.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Awesome||
|1 year 11 weeks ago||No block?||
No good angles on GRIII's awesome sky block that was probably a goaltend?
Edit: it's here starting at 16:15:
|1 year 11 weeks ago||75-74 mich||
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Disagree||
There is a TON of interesting info on Kenpom that is not shared here. I think the ratio is about the same, actually...a small amount of info is published here that sort of leaves you salivating for more.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Paywalled||
It's paywalled...can you give us a top five in order or something? Is that too much info?
Also, he updated the formula a little this year:
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Isn't that||
Isn't that the OP's point? This is a thread to come up with some potentially fun storylines. I like it. The potential for creativity in the offseason is what makes this blog exciting to read. Don't be a Debbie Downer.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||you could||
You could always say "crap" (as long as you don't say "₵rap")
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Can we stop||
with the $s for Ss? I don't like it. It makes me think of those annoying people who write "O$U" all the time.
And yes, the NCAA sucks.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||75-59||
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Much as I love watching McGary play||
I vote Morgan all the way. While McGary has the higher percentages at blocks and steals, I think Morgan plays much better all-around defense. McGary is more of a high-risk, high-reward defensive player and is still lacking in certain fundamentals.
The stat I'd like to see (did UMHoops put this up at some point?) is the field goal percentage of the players each of them are guarding.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||91-84 Michigan||
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Agreed||
He sounds like someone with a recurring role on Downton Abbey.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Agreed||
but A LOT more bounce. He's throwing down pretty easily, I remember Smotz had trouble unless he had a couple of steps. Seems like he has better post moves than Smotz already, as well.
In any case, DO WANT
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Exactly||
I had exactly the same takeaways. Some of the Poggi drills I was sort of like, "Oh...are they still doing the same drill? This looks totally different." His hand work was awesome.
Hunt and Dawson looked really good. Hunt, yes please. MORE O LINE.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Hey||
I just listen to that and the glee soundtrack IRONICALLY, OK? Dang.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Loving the||
Sanderson reference, Seth. +1.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Well,||
It definitely isn't Chad Henne. He apparently had very little time on his hands and a lot of it on his stomach and back.
Gotta love him.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Totally agree||
I can't believe Clowney got player of the game. I thought multiple other SC players (including on defense) deserved it over him. He was largely ineffective except for one or two plays all game. Lewan owned him.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Your signature||
Is it embarassing that I followed the little cursor guy around for like five minutes with my mouse? I feel like a cat trying to catch a laser pointer.
Mmm...Friday afternoon at work. So productive.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Really?!||
Why, oh why. Please don't post pics like this unless they are hidden by a link or something.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||DON'T DO IT||
It's a scam, all you get is more depth
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Yep||
That's exactly how I would put it. This is a ranking basically comparing the top teams in each conference. Unfortunately the polls don't have quite as much detail after about 30 teams or so as KenPom and Sagarin do, otherwise I would have tried to go farther down the ladder.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||No pivot tables||
Suprisingly. Just threw down conferences, didn't put too much effort in. Could expand if you want.
Big Ten ranks, then point totals:
|1 year 18 weeks ago||73-61 M||
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Binghamton||
gets double figures...but not by a lot
