This is the stupidest shit on the internet, guess nobody should every say anything negative about any sports team at Michigan ever given that any player could beat the living shit out of anyone that posts here. You can play hard and still play soft. Look at Walton's three, there is no time left on the clock, why is noboyd crashing the offensive boards? Trying to get back for tranistion d? The guards got blown by all night leading to easy layups, Bell got the offensive rebounds when it mattered. They settled for bad threes outside the offense all night and were clearly avoiding attacking the rim because of shot blocking. They played a soft game.

I'm proud of how the team finished the season but anyone who is saying they played well tonight is delusional. They stopped running their offenses for long stretches and lost because they couldn't rebound a free throw.

They didn't want it more but we played soft tonight. No way around that. Just a shit performance.

I'm swinging wildely between being super confident and absolutely paranoid about this game. Which I think just means I have no idea how I feel.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Yes that was conjecture that||
Yes that was conjecture that when we are going head to head with OSU for a recruit Urban's ability to point to 4 top 10 draft picks to our none over the last two years could be seen as a potential issue. It won't matter until its Harbaughs recruited guys but at that point it could matter to some recruits. One of Michigans pitches on the recruiting trail is that the NFL experience on the coaching staff and the system they run is good for getting kids in the NFL, mutliple recruits have talked about that aspect of the pitch in interviews. That pitch only works if your kids are getting drafted as highly as the people you are recruiting against.

The NFL doesn't draft on heisman votes. There are concerns that Peppers doesn't have great hip fluidity to stay with slots in coverage and is slow to diagnose passing plays. He isn't big enough to be a LB in the NFL and doesn't have coverage tape to show he could play outside.
I'm just relaying what mock drafts and scouts are saying, I don't know enough about football scouting to asses if Peppers is slow to read passing plays on tape or seemingly doesn't have fluid hips. I know the Michigan defense was centered around him so his lack of stats in the passing game shouldn't be seen as an issue but beyond that I'm not claiming to be an expert scout.

Pretty much every mock draft and evaluation has him out of the first round with almost every national scout saying that just based on tape and not hype they would give Peppers a second or third round grade. Of course surprises happen but when almost every national analyst is saying one thing that thing is probably true. It doesn't look like Peppers is going to be a first round pick while fucking Hooker and Lattimore are both going to go in the top 10. Going to need some top 10 draft picks to compete with osu on the recruiting front soon.

This may be a little out there theory wise and treads into the no politics rule but given that its a graduate student I wouldn't be shocked if it turned out to be an international student who was nervous about being able to stay/get in and out of the US in the current climate and jumped out as a way to sneak into canada.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I don't see how Walton is||
I don't see how Walton is more effective in the NBA than Trey has been, which is to say not really effective. Its just a completely different level, especially for point guards right now. Pretty much every guy in the league looks like juwan evans but with 3-4 extra inches of height, he would be a massive liability on defense and probably unable to get his own shot on offense. I hope I'm wrong and I love the guy, but I'm not going to be surprised when he is playing in europe next year.

That kenpom chart show's how fickel basketball is. Its wonderful how well we are playing but Nova, Wichita State, and SMU all lost to teams ranked well below them, except for wichita state.
|3 days 22 hours ago||Its kind of crazy that for||
Its kind of crazy that for the first time in about forever next year the worry will be about guard play and depth rather than the forwards and center position

And if the refs don't let us box out we are really fucked

if they are hitting threes we might just be fucked
|5 days 12 hours ago||Playing oklahoma state it||
Playing oklahoma state it seemed like our team had never seen a pick and roll before. Even if we shoot well if they are getting dunks everytime down the court its going to be tough to win.
I see this game going the way of the elite 8 game we lost to Kentucky when we shot well but they rebounded half their misses and won on a last second shot. Just hope it breaks the other way this time.

MSU wasn't good this year but Bridges better go to the NBA because they have a chance to be real good next year.
|6 days 11 hours ago||You mean the same illinois||
You mean the same illinois state team with no real wins? And got rocked 2 out 3 times by a wichita state team that msu beat on a neutral floor? That wasn't the snub everyone wants it to be.
|6 days 17 hours ago||Well one of those teams was||
Well one of those teams was top 10 all year in a better conference, I think L'ville is the better team.
|6 days 17 hours ago||Going to need to be good on||
Going to need to be good on the defensive glass on sunday. Probably aren't going to score 91 on louisville's defense and if we give up the number of offensive rebounds we did today we aren't going to be able to win that game.
|1 week 20 hours ago||There are some good young||
There are some good young coaches out there right now, hope they botch this one.
|1 week 1 day ago||He stopped for the same||
He stopped for the same reason Happ stutter stepped, it would have meant leaving a good three point shooter with a wide open corner three
|1 week 1 day ago||He was always a tactical||
He was always a tactical genius with an iffy recruiting record and bad defense. The swing on how people view Beilein hasn't happened because the offense got better, its because Billy Donlon teaching defense kicked in and Derrick Walton decided to have the freshman to sophmore leap that got 6 players drated to the nba in the second half of his senior season. If Donlon sticks around this team could be really good next year if Xavier Simpson keeps progressing.
|1 week 2 days ago||I feel like Iowa state is||
I feel like Iowa state is Michigan's closest analogue in the big 12 and they beat osu three times. Get Simmons in foul trouble and we should be good. Dribble penetration scares the crap out of me, Nate Mason killed us and this guy is better and sorrounded by better 3 point shooters that makes help defense. Think to avoid fould trouble maybe take advantage of OSU having a short shooting guard and put Rahk on Evans and hope his length bothers him at the shots around the rim.

and everyone looked the other way about the money because we were winning. There are hundreds of people who have never apologized and knew about it, do you dislike them all too?
|1 week 3 days ago||Amateurism is a farce. I||
Amateurism is a farce. I don't apologize for jaywalking. Accepting thousands of dollars when you are worth millions to the school profiting off your athletic achievements isn't a mistake and didnt impact his ability to go to the NBA
|1 week 3 days ago||He didn't make a mistake.||
He didn't make a mistake. There is no wrong doing to admit.
|1 week 3 days ago||I think its pretty absurd||
I think its pretty absurd that fans would dislike a kid for doing something to help his family. There are also the hundreds of racist letters from UM alums all the fab five received.
|1 week 3 days ago||Yeah was there thursday||
Yeah was there thursday saturday and sunday and Michigan was well represented all weekend and the atmosphere on sunday was great as the random fans there before the game they cared about got weeded out.
And for all the people complaining about it being in DC, since more Michigan fans seemingly showed up to this than bothered to show up in Crisler for most of the year and were definetely louder I for one am pretty happy alums on the east coast got a chance to cheer on the team.

Yeah good luck with those tickets, I'd honestly say $100 was lower than I thought it would be
|1 week 4 days ago||People in Louisville don't||
People in Louisville don't actually seem all that concerned. They think the big ten is trash (probably true) so it while its nice Michigan has won games they haven't played an elite team since UCLA.
|1 week 4 days ago||Michigan, Louisville, and||
Michigan, Louisville, and Kentucky in Indianapolis is going to make for some very expensive tickets.
