Agreed, and some of that is his weight. if he were 20 lbs heavier he could probably bully smaller 2s into the lane while still being able to go around bigger 3s with his quickness.
I wonder about the critique that he doesn't have a good frame to gain weight. That might be true but he has filled out a lot since he was 17 and men (who ae 40!) tend to bulk up in their early 20s so he probably can put on a few more pounds.

But Bowie was a bust for more reasons than not having any rings.

I think in any universe Hakeem was a more defensible first pick than Bowie was a second pick, even given what Jordan turned out to be.

That shit has to end.
And frankly, I think that playing time is what motivates these kids, not the possibility that their scholarship will be yoinked.

But we aren't 5-0. We suck, and there is mounting evidence that this is because our HFC doesn't know how to react to changing times and field a competitive team in a Power 5 conference post-Y2K. The blunder with Morris is just more evidence that this is so, not a tacked-on morally outraged reason to want him gone.

Anyway, I wouldn't have booed had I been there because I'm not a booer (or a boor, or a Boer), but watching on TV I did have that sinking "oh right, we have THAT kind of coach instead of the kind of coach who will ride a white steed though the gates of hell to help our boys get the win" kind of feeling.

I'm not saying you're wrong, and I would be interested in hearing what Space Coyote or someone like that would have to say, but it strikes me that the downside of jamming receivers is if you miss.
A jam sort of requires that the DB be exerting force in the opposite direction as the WR wants to go (physics!) so that means a whiff on a jam leads to a free release by the WR. And if the point of press coverage is to enable your safeties to roll up, then you might wind up with a real problem on the back end.
Hehe free releases on the back end.

I'm probably getting overly semantic here, but I guess I think that they are both pretty awfully violent things to do to someone (not just the punching, but the damage it caused).
I would agree that if the explusion line is placed right at what Gibbons did, then I probably wouldn't say York's offense was at that line or worse. But I tend to think York's offense was also past that line, even though on balance I probably agree that Gibbons's is well past that line.
I guess I would turn the question around on you--why is (almost certainly) giving someone a concussion, breaking their jaw in three places, forcing them into weeks of recovery, and potentially giving them PTSD, not also worthy of explusion?
|24 weeks 2 days ago||That's kind of my point, I||
That's kind of my point, I think. If (1) Glasgow had hit someone with his car and broken their jaw and knocked them unconscious; and (2) there was high-quality video of it that made it unambiguous that he did it on purpose, people probably would have had a much bigger problem with it.
I was mostly responding to Brian's apparent chagrin that people were so ready to shitcan York. I think the video had a lot to do with that reaction.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||I don't think you have to||
I don't think you have to interpret what I said that way. For them to be treated similarly by policy doesn't mean we have to think they are exactly the same thing.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||I'm generally sympathetic to||
I'm generally sympathetic to dudes like York, and I think if all we heard was "Csont'e punched a guy in the face and broke his jaw" we'd probably give him the benefit of the doubt in the sense that we wouldn't know exactly what happened (a la Lewan punching megaphone Buckeye man).
And in a sense we still don't know exactly what happened because of no audio. But that video... I mean, this was not remotely a scuffle or a "heat of the moment" thing. He balled up, paused, and then drilled a guy looking away with his hands in his pockets.
It's easy for me to believe the kid said something or was generally douchey, but man. Some things you just can't undo, and I honestly can't get myself to a place where York should stay on the team. I'm not at all sure of the UM policies on this, but it seems like if Gibbons got expelled, York should too. Both are unconscionably violent acts and to me require revoking the privilege of attending UM.

Here's more evidence that college athletics is in crisis.
According to this article in The Chronicle, the most recent data I could find said that graduation rates of football and men's basketball players were at an all-time high. Per the article:
And according to this article in the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, the black male graduation rate for the general population was at about 35% for roughly the same period.

I'm pretty convinced that the 3FG% isn't that affected by defense, especially in the Beilein offense where bad shots are verboten.
What would be a concern with DR (NTDR) is his usage rate. Can he get those shots off? Nik's evolution was punishing teams for (1) denying him the ball --> backdoor Game Blouses dunks; and (2) Closing out like maniacs on the 3 point shot --> getting in the lane for layups.
It looks to me like DR will have no trouble making shots he gets off, but whether he can add the other stuff Nik added is obviously up in the air. My gun to the head guess would be no, in which case he'll be Matt Vogrich But Taller.

I tend to agree, though quantity is important for any one class, since recruits are lottery tickets.
But given that most teams wind up with 85 scholarships (cough cough Saban), any one year shouldn't matter as much as, say, three-year rolling averages. That way the quantity in one year would be muted by the quantity in another and the average quality would rise to the fore.
Sounds like a Hoke Points to me.
