If we don't make open threes might as well just walk off the court now. Will be interesting to see how we respond to the run.
Also duck the auto bench policy. We need threes which means Duncan.

Was the shot of the big house old? There was a split m on the scoreboard

Softball really seems to come down to elite pitching. We have good pitching but not the best and it shows. Know betsa is out but they are starting a freshman and we are supposed to be the best offense.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Yeah I don't think its that||
Yeah I don't think its that big of a deal. I just imagine there are a certain percentage of players who would prefer to be able to go home that week who can't. I don't think it needs to be an NCAA rule or anything just hope its something Harbaugh considered. His job is to win football games and get the best recruits and he is doing that. Just think it would be interesting if you did a secret vote count of the team how many players would prefer to ahve that week to go home and would rather practice a week where school in session.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Harbaugh obviously can do||
Harbaugh obviously can do this and the SEC obviously only cares because of recruiting but there is something to be said about losing a free week. Spring break is a time that kids can go home, or a lot of athletes actually do things like mission trips, alternative spring break, etc. These are things you can't do other weeks because of class. If the team is fine with it its fine but for the kids from places like California or the east coast they are losing the one week of second semester they could spend with family. Just brushing that aside because Florida! isn't really a great answer to that.
Its obviously not why the SEC cares but I'm sure some of the players aren't thrilled even though its a free trip to Florida.

Mentally soft mediocre basketball team does mentally soft medoicre things. This team is who they have been all year, even with lavert. When the other team gets on a run we fold, luckily Minnsesota was terrible so we had a big enough lead but against every good team we have played we get run off the court and fold. Happened with Xavier and SMU and UCONN even with Lavert.
This team is one random win away over MD from being closer to the NIT bubble than the NCAA bubble.

Dawkins needs to get more minutes just becaue Robinson doesn't have the legs right now. Robinson isn't getting open consistently and isn't making open threes when he does. He needs more rest so he can run off screens relentlessly when in.

Hey Ace, don't know how much you plan on replying to comments but this season is a make the tournament and be happy with it sort of ceilieng. Which is generally fine to have and shows how beilein has helped raise the bar of expectations but at what point is worry about the future of the team justified?
We have seen how next years team looks and it isn't super pretty and all we are adding is a backup pg, a moderately rated wing with moderate athletecism and shooting and two (or one depending on prep years) not super athletic big men who are most likely multiple year projects. Meanwhile MSU got all the recruits Beilein originally wanted, Maryland is probably going to bring in another top 10 national class, Indiana looks better, and OSU is a super young but talented team that will have another year. At that point you are asking for a 65 year old beilein to drastically turn it around on the recruiting trail or we are looking at 4-5 straight year of mediocrity. Am I right to be a little panicked there isn't enough time left in Beileins coaching career for him to get the team out of being a middle of the road team again?

Scouts think the guys ranked above him will be better in college? I mean most d1 players are going to look good in high school so its about projecting beyond that. His handles might be good enough to beat hs players off the dribble but not college. Same goes for athletecism. Couple that with the fact that he isn't a great shooter and you get the ranking.
|1 week 17 hours ago||We aren't actually the||
We aren't actually the 4th-6th best team we had an easy start to the schedule. We are probably more like 8th or 9th in the conference.
|1 week 17 hours ago||This isn't a one game issue.||
This isn't a one game issue. It's now a 2 year issue and recruiting suggests we will be in a worse place next year.
|1 week 1 day ago||That isn't a "this is||
That isn't a "this is awesome" tweet. It could go either way depending on how you want to read it.
|1 week 1 day ago||We don't get it even if they||
We don't get it even if they did so who really cares. That was a great basketball game and they won it. Whether a player was there because he had sex with a stripper doesn't really change that.
|1 week 1 day ago||I'm a little nervous that||
I'm a little nervous that some of the current guys committed are the under the radar 3 star types that were pushed out of their commitment this year. As long as that happens this summer its fine, but it needs to happen this summer.
It will also be pretty crushing to lose Peoples-Jones. The top teams in the country are top teams a lot of the time because elite talent doesn't leave. For a top 10 guy who grew up in Detroit with a parent that went to Michigan to not come here would just be such a shit situation. I'm also a little worried becaues he seems like a quiet stay under the radar guy and something like sots seems more likely to turn him away than interest him. He should obviously do what makes him happiest and I won't have any issues with what he decides, even if its osu or msu but he should probably be #1 on our boards.

A lot of fgs get blocked too and not because of the kicker. Kicking in a high school game is just risky in general.

Only thing missing is a student section to make it louder in there. Brandon Peters couldn't look less excited to be up there though.
|1 week 4 days ago||At least this should end the||
At least this should end the stupid talk that we are better without caris because we beat the three worst teams in the league I'm dogfights. This is a mediocre team that is bad on defense. Can't go 7 minutes without scoring we will never win on defense.
|1 week 4 days ago||They should just take||
They should just take Nebraska back. For all the shit we give Rutgers Nebraska doesn't add jack to the conference. Football program is probably going to tank with Riley at the helm and no more ability to recruit Texas while in the big ten. They will probably never be better than mediocre in basketball, no recruiting advantage to have that state, they don't bring a large tv market and to top if off its the worst school academically. Just let them go back.
|1 week 5 days ago||Brian you are an intelligent||
Brian you are an intelligent guy but this post is 100% just your opinion and you come off pretty condescending. How do you know the fact that Harbaugh pulled that didn't impact the way Hamilton saw him at all? You have a close personal converasation with him about it? Because I'm guessing not. It was obviously always a possibliity he might flip but to say 100% that Harbaugh being willing to drop people when he thinks he has better options might have zero impact on someone seems a little over the top. If you don't think Michigan wasn't planning on filling out the class that Swenson wouldn't be in it that is pretty naive of you. Michigan only pushed him out because they thought they could get a better player in this class, it might not have been another OL but someone they liked better and they were worried about a numbers crunch. If this class were to only have finished with 20 people in it Swenson would never have been pushed out and believing otherwise because Michigan cares about the kid and he probably wouldn't have played seems like the height of naivete.
|1 week 5 days ago||Don't want to start another||
Don't want to start another topic so since this is OL related I keep seeing people mention stuff about Onwenu seemingly ready to flip? Are there any real legs to the rumor? Him dropping Michigan commit from his twitter would seem like a really bad sign but since I've never been on his twitter I can't tell.

There has literally been zero indication that this is true or even remotely close to true from anywhere.

They sold out their hockey game against us last night, so they certainly exist.

Lot of optimism in this thread. Hope its right.

Yogi was top 25 in the country, he was a much bigger recruit, that doesn't mean simpson can't be good, but ferrell was definetly better in high school.
I also went to check on Xaviers recruiting profile and still can't believe how badly we got spanked by msu on the recruiting trail this year. They have 4 guys in the top 40 including two in the top 15.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Sure but when Harbaugh||
Sure but when Harbaugh doesn't call him for 6 months when he likes someone better and then tells him lol nope you aren't good enough I just lied to you last year when I didn't have better options your kid is probably not going to be thrilled.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||He did this at Stanford too.||
He did this at Stanford too. It's already a pattern. Harbaugh is basically ghosting kids and hoping they get the message. It's childish. Don't accept offers from kids you plan on recruiting over. Non comittable offers exist more or less to show interest without this situation.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I hate when people say stuff||
I hate when people say stuff like this like there aren't guys rated higher the staff tried to get and didn't. I'm sure our class will be good but it won't be the 30 ish guys the staff want the most it will be like 15 guys the staff had on the top of their boards and a bunch of plan b's and c's which is fine but recruiting services generally get things right. I bet Michigan would love to have greg little over every OL recruit in the class but they won't get him. That doesn't make the recruiting sites wrong about little.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||The student section set up in||
The student section set up in Crisler sucks but a roving student section for big games is a horrendous idea and unfair to season ticket holders. They missed the chance to do anything good during the crisler renovation and not it just sucks. They should have bleachers around the entire court and there should be a steeper wall of students behind one basket, not off to the side with the band behind the basket and over a tunnel. Who the fuck put a tunnel behind the basket? Those always go in corners. So much stupid went into that plan.
