|4 days 11 hours ago||Might I suggest||
reading the prediction section? (It's the entire season output. Boucher's injury isn't factored in.)
|4 days 11 hours ago||Robinson's career 3P%...||
...is literally identical to Stauskas' on a similar number of attempts, and while he got off to a slow start (by his standards) this year, he's been around 45% on threes since Big Ten play began. Don't let a couple missed free throws throw off your perception of his work on the whole, especially since he's become a much better all-around player this year, especially on defense.
|6 days 7 hours ago||Didn't mean it that way.||
He has issues when he drives and there's a help defender waiting in the lane. He's been picking his spots and driving when he just has one man to beat to get to the rim. I certainly have no issue with him taking layups—we have a few other pictures from last weekend that are eerily similar the one in this post where Irvin is putting the ball on the backboard with little resistance.
|1 week 6 days ago||Unfortunately not.||
I'd default to that if I could. Hopefully they'll add a no autoplay embed option before too long.
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||From Minnesota.||
So it'll be posted tomorrow.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||This is analysis.||
Not coaching. That's Beilein's job. I'll keep doing mine, thanks.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Learn something new...||
|4 weeks 6 days ago||lol, whoops||
thanks for pointing out the typo.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||By my (not-tech-inclined) understanding||
the server issues have largely been solved. (/knocks on wood.) We've done multiple upgrades, including a relatively recent one, as well as adding Cloudflare. The primary reason we got rid of the HD app is it was putting an enormous strain on the server, far more than it should've for the amount of traffic it was generating.
The NSD outage was a bit of really bad luck. Our database got corrupted (an issue totally unrelated to the server), and while it was something that could've been fixed pretty quickly, it happened to occur just as we'd arrived at the Bo Store to record the live podcast—we restored a backup from the previous day and reposted that day's posts when the podcast wrapped up. The server had actually been on a roll—I had no trouble posting Solomon's Hello post.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Oops, fixed.||
Forgot to update those figures from the Indiana graphic. Thanks for pointing that out.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||This||
was my reasoning. A victory over a fellow bubble team doesn't do nearly as much for tourney hopes as other bubble teams falling by the wayside. Marquette and VT being on just the right side of the bubble instead of just the wrong side won't have a significant impact on M's tourney resume, especially since M will pick up another quality win or two down the stretch if they're going to have the resume needed to make the field in the first place.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I won't bother with screencaps.||
I went through every post touch by Bryant last night. Double-teams were frequent but not constant, which I mentioned, and you posted a particularly misleading stat: while he was 3-for-8 from the field, he was 0-for-4 on three-pointers, which have nothing to do with the subject at hand (especially as it relates to Happ).
Davis did score almost at will. Incidentally, he got a number of touches against Donnal, and a couple of his buckets came when he was on the floor at the same time as Bryant.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I understand that.||
I appreciate the response; nothing you said jumped out to me from what I saw. There was just too much stuff on the borderline in those threads to sift through individual comments after a while. BiSB actually got to one thread before I did and cleared out the worst comments; there was still plenty that, at the very least, could be construed as making light of the issue. In this case, I'd rather err on the side of caution than not.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Locked three threads...||
...related to the sexual assault allegations at MSU. The original posts themselves are fine—what is happening in East Lansing is newsworthy. Many of the responses were not okay, however. Sexual assault is not a joking matter, and this is not fodder for rivalry trolling. There's plenty of source material for that elsewhere (see: Tuesday night) without making light of a very serious situation.
|7 weeks 6 hours ago||It's been inconsistent.||
They were the #2 defensive rebounding team in the B1G just last year. The year before that, #13. The peak Beilein squads were in the mediocre-to-below-average range, at least in conference play.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Ellis has been playing more than McQuaid lately.||
I try to cover the whole rotation, but sometimes I won't get to everyone. Going over the current top eight is my main priority. Plus, McQuaid is really struggling; it's not like I skipped over a vital bench scorer.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Fixed||
No idea why I had that in my head.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Downside to having such a large fanbase||
TV networks know they can stick Michigan in any time slot and draw ratings. This year, unfortunately, that's meant they keep getting tagged with the less desirable time slot.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Last time: 2013-14 regular season finale||
That one ended rather well.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||lol||
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks for your continued input.||
|11 weeks 2 days ago||I'm sure his post||
was just as informative.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||yikes||
|11 weeks 4 days ago||No Najee||
Bad thread title, redundant thread, got pissy when called out, and a bewbs avatar.
Other than that, great job, OP.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||No impact NT yet...||
...but I think James Hudson is an impact DT. His senior film is really impressive. More polished version of Willie Henry.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Popovich, huh?||
He may not be with you on this anti-analytics front: https://digit.hbs.org/submission/san-antonio-spurs-data-driven-approach-to-win-games/
|11 weeks 5 days ago||JeepinBen has me covered for stats.||
So let's address this:
That is the hoops equivalent of "there are three things that can happen when you pass and two of them are bad." How's that one holding up in 2017?
|11 weeks 5 days ago||What would you call for him?||
Post-ups? Wildly inefficient and not his strongsuit.
Roll man on the high screen? Wagner is the better option there.
Perhaps we should take a 28-point, six-offensive-rebound, six-assist effort as a sign Beilein is utiliing him how he should be utilized. Not calling plays specifically with him in mind doesn't mean Michigan isn't running sets in which he's involved; there aren't many (any?) plays in Beilein's playbook designed to end only one way. Unless you want the ball in Wilson's hands at the end of the shot clock, I'm not sure what more you could want here.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Way off base.||
If Michigan is running their offense through Wilson, he's not there to get those six offensive rebounds, which is how he got a good chunk of those points. The rest came within the flow of the offense, which is ideal. He's a player who functions best that way; you don't want to run a bunch of Wilson post-ups or isos—he's not a guy who's going to take a defender off the bounce and he doesn't have a refined post-up game yet (not to mention post-ups are just about the least-efficient play you can call).
It's a good thing that a player is able to produce so much without being the focal point of the offense. Criticizing Beilein for how he handles Wilson after that performance is quite the feat of Beilein-bashing.
