|1 day 14 hours ago||To my knowledge...||
...they have not moved to Istanbul. So that's a positive, I think.
|5 days 15 hours ago||It's...||
|5 days 16 hours ago||A few potential factors here:||
1. Rockford is a really good program that tends to dominate their division opponents.
2. Aggressive fourth-down strategy tends to be the norm in high school and coaches tend to stick with their ways.
3. It's not just about having a good kicker. You need a reliable long-snapper and holder, too. The former can be especially tough to find at the high school level, and unless you have a dedicated long-snapper, you're taking practice time away from working at positions that are going to be on the field a whole lot more.
|1 week 3 days ago||How you drew all that...||
...from one line is rather remarkable.
At no point did I say this team shouldn't shoot a high number of threes—I've maintained quite the opposite all season (and all of Beilein's tenure), in fact. It's hard to dispute, however, that when Michigan doesn't make many threes, they tend to find themselves in trouble—they got crushed in similar performances against UConn and SMU. The whole theme of the post is that they've now reached the point where they're able to generate consistent offense even when the outside shots aren't falling—which is, I believe, your second point above.
If you're going to criticize for lazy writing, you might want to be more careful in your reading.
|1 week 3 days ago||34 points in the paint...||
...this afternoon. Michigan doesn't list game-by-game totals so I'll leave the research to someone else for now, but that's definitely one of their higher outputs this season.
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||FWIW||
By my understanding the 3 pm time was never official—that came from someone not affiliated with ESPN—so I wouldn't read too much into the perceived time change. Still would be feeling quite optimistic about the announcement.
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||No go...||
...on both that comment and that avatar. Let's try to keep this a place where all people (or at least Michigan fans) feel welcome and comfortable.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||(No subject)||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Fixed.||
|2 weeks 6 days ago||KenPom's efficiency ratings...||
...are adjusted for schedule, so the low-quality non-conference opponents don't have an adverse impact on M's rankings.
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||We have mute buttons.||
They are utilized.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||A bad oversight.||
Thanks for pointing that out.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Checked with Alex.||
It's Tarrance Crump, guard off the bench for Purdue in 2008. He barely fit the criteria. Went 4/27 from three as a senior.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||That could be a separate post.||
But if you look back at the Purdue game, Walton gets blown by without offering much resistance to his man time and again. I don't have an explanation for it; he's just having a hard time staying in front of people, and that tends to set off chaos with rotations among the other defenders, too.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Once again,||
I've been snubbed.
|5 weeks 15 hours ago||Whoops, should've included that.||
Half this post disappeared for reasons beyond my comprehension yesterday and I forgot to update with this when I put it back together.
|7 weeks 11 hours ago||Made to order...||
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I would not...||
...read that much into that.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks, everyone.||
It's been a heck of a year. Here's hoping the next is even better.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||At no point...||
...did I say that. Durkin is a very good recruiter. Jim Harbaugh is the program's best recruiter. That seemed pretty clear to me.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Not too familiar...||
...with some of the names on that list, but Pruitt would be a home run hire as a recruiter—I'd say he'd even be an upgrade over Durkin, and that's saying something. Lance Anderson was Stanford's recruiting coordinator from 2007-11, when they did quite well on the trail, and David Long mentioned he'd love for Anderson to wind up at Michigan (quote in the post); I'd assume that would be a solid recruiting hire, as well.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||In Bill Kurelic's report...||
...on 247 (which I assume is where you got this), he said that they did contact him again, but while the door isn't closed, the likelihood he ends up back at OSU "is low."
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Eason...||
...not happening, as far as I know. Don't think Michigan is even pursuing him. They're quite set with Peters/Viramontes.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Your last sentence...||
...is exactly why I rarely include tweets like that in these posts.
Regardless of that, I'd be pretty surprised if Durkin's departure has much of an impact on the recruitment of Walker, anyway. Not on the same side of the ball and Walker's primary recruiter is Wheatley.
|10 weeks 14 hours ago||Yeah, that wording is a little confusing.||
Wagner is the primary backup big now. When Doyle takes a seat, he'll be the first in off the bench.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Excited.||
For one thing, he's a dang good prospect. For another, it won't have any bearing on Michigan's ability or chance to add Gary to the class.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Happy to credit when credit is due.||
In this case, credit goes to (1) my RSS feed, and (2) most of my Twitter feed. Where do you think the board got it from?
|11 weeks 4 days ago||You must be new here.||
Going against KenPom is certain death around these parts.
|13 weeks 14 hours ago||Wind knocked out.||
I feigned ignorance for the sake of humor, but that's a pretty standard way to help someone get their breath back after they've had the wind knocked out, which was the case here.
|13 weeks 14 hours ago||I inevitably forget an honorable mention or two.||
