He really probably should go if he gets a first round pick. If he comes back next year and has a bad year or is injured again he is gauranteed to fall out of the first round, that is a lot of risk and pressure when you can take the first round this year.

GRIII is on an NBA roster making more money than most of us ever will. He didn't make a huge leap between years while here and didn't believe Beileins system suited his game to raise his stock profile. He believed in his ability to make a roster even without a gauranteed contract and he was right. GRIII made the right call for him.

No way you are 10% chance to hit a half court shot in 10 tries.

Its not that shocking to anyone who pays attention to K. He does what he has to to win and look good. This is the same coached who managed to get duke to start giving his basketball players bullshit 2-3 year degrees so he could preach about graduation rates.
|19 hours 37 min ago||His quotes over the last two||
His quotes over the last two weeks actually paint a pretty clear picture. His two favorites are USC and Stanford, its been really tough flipping back and forth between them but he thinks he is almost there. Harbaugh has also been pushing for him to go out to Michigan and he likes Michigan so he is going to try to make it but its not a priority and they are clearly not in the top two.

Not suprised by Costello. I was confused that people thought the quote from last week meant Michigan was the favorite since he pretty much said Stanford was the favorite with USC making a push.
|1 day 16 min ago||The idea is also to try to||
The idea is also to try to crown a champion in an era of unbalanced schedules. Let's say for arguments sake Wisconsin finished 1 game behind maryland for the big ten title but played a harder league schedule because of 1 offs and only got to play at Maryland. Well they can make the finals of the btt and prove the reasons they lost was because it was a road game. Every team doesn't play the same schedule, giving teams a chance to play it out on the court in a neutral site is a way to try to balance that out.
|1 day 24 min ago||We built a a lead but then||
We built a a lead but then lost it all. We still went into the half losing. We had an 11 point lead, Beilein should have put Burke back in to stop their run to take the lead back, the momentum swing from them erasing an 11 point lead in the last 4 minutes of the half was probably the reason we lost.

It's also distinctly possible his policy caused us to lose the national championship game. This isn't a one game situation, it's a policy he refuses to budge from that has cost his teams many games.
Beilein is great and is developing this team well but it hasn't been his best coaching job. This team lost to njit and emu at home even with a healthy team. The insistence on the 1-3-1 and inbounds plays cost us the Illinois game and the two foul policy has let up huge runs against msu Indiana and now Maryland

I'm happy teske is looking good but this team could really use an athletic freak who blocks a ton of shots. The 5 doesn't play a big offensive role for beilein. It's pick and pop or rolls mostly, no real feeding the post. That means his defensive presence is going to be important. Especially when guys like duncan Robinson, good shooters poor lateral quickness needed for d, are on the perimeter.
You can get away with slower/poor defensive gaurd play if you have an eraser at the 5.

Actually most rapists never even get charged because it is probably the hardest offense to prove in a court of law but yeah. Also how does forced impriosonment only carry a $750 fine?
|6 days 11 hours ago||No I mean Jake Layman. The||
No I mean Jake Layman. The 6-8 guy who shoots 50% from 2 and 40% from 3 and average s 6.6 rebounds a game while also adding over an assist a game. The one who put up 23 points the last time he faced off againt brandon dawson. Who is going to guard hiim? He has 2 inches and more lateral quickness than Irvin. Not to mention we will have to put Spike on melo trimble, probably the third best guy at getting into the lane in the big ten because there is no way he could deal with the physicality of dez wells. Our only hope is to play a crazy packed in zone and pray they don't hit their 3's.

We would have 16 wins, d 2 teams don't count. If we win out we might have a chance at an at large if we make it to the championship game with a win over wisconsin on the way but even that would be sweating it out.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Maryland was always a solid||
Maryland was always a solid add, people just didn't like adding teams. They are a pretty well regarded large research institution that also happens to be in the 4th largest metro area in the country. They are a great basketball school historically and had the 3 most wins of any acc team behind only duke and unc. Football team actually has a national championship and the state puts out good talent, they've been to more bcs bowls (1) than most of the big ten. They also already have 3 big ten championships out of a possible 9 so far and probably have the best baseball team and mens and womens lax teams in the conference. If you were going to expand Maryland always made sense, it was just people being upset with expanding.
|6 days 12 hours ago||It is senior night and the||
It is senior night and the only team MD has only lost at home to UVA this year when dez wells was injured and it was still a close game. Maryland is a bad matchup for us, gaurds who drive well and an athletic good big 4.
|6 days 14 hours ago||Maryland is pretty easily the||
Maryland is pretty easily the top conference wbb program at the moment and is proving by already winning the big ten championship and being undefeated in conference play.

Do you think Eminem on the coaching staff would make him more or less likely to work with the Hail and Unite team on a new song?
|6 days 22 hours ago||The ladies are arranged to||
The ladies are arranged to hang out with the guys but it is generally not paid and is all volunteer. It is still skeezy that the school sets it up but those girls aren't getting paid to kiss treadwell, they volunteered for whatever their reasons are.

Wilcher might be a UM alum but his responsibility now is to his players, not Michigan. If he and a given player believe OSU will do a better job of showcasing their talents and give them a better shot at the NFL than that is where they should go and Wilcher should support that. Wilcher should not put his alma mater above the welfare of the kids he is coaching.
Now I don't necessarily believe Urban is a great guy and it is dissapointing to see Wilcher being gullible, but the issue at that point isn't with sending a kid to OSU, it is with sending a kid to Urban.

This is a little random but it is terrible for kids form for them to be shooting at regular height hoops. Almost all of those kids are shooting from the chest froum outside the paint to get the ball there. Just builds terrible habits. Play with smaller balls and shorter hoops.
|1 week 18 hours ago||Not sure how you get Michigan||
Not sure how you get Michigan as leading for Costello when he says Stanford has been a favorite all along. Not saying we don't stand a good shot or anything but favorite seems like a stretch from that quote.
|1 week 18 hours ago||I mean in defense of||
I mean in defense of Treadwell he was the star receiver on a top 5 team, is almost certainly going to get drafted in the first round and most of us probably would want the life he has at ole miss. I don't blame him at all.
|1 week 20 hours ago||You say that comment like a||
You say that comment like a lot of people qualify but it is less than 15% of the student population.
|1 week 21 hours ago||Well yeah but that was||
Well yeah but that was student to student. My point is that student tickets don't get outside of the student market all that frequently and since excpet for the really big games student tickets never cost more than like $20 between friends or friends of friends so it there isn't a huge market of people just buying tickets with the sole intent of re selling them because making a profit is a lot of work, and its not that big a proftit.
Plus I don't think it will have too much of an impact on the market since less than like 15% of the student population is eligible for pell grants and probably not all of those students want/can afford even reduced price tickets, and a portion of those students who do buy will most certainly do so with the intention of actually attending the games. Plus an enterprising student would most likely set the price of their ticket as close as possible to overall ticket market. Just because you pay less for the ticket doesn't mean you should not maximize profit and if the average student ticket is selling for $50 an intelligent seller would set their price at $49 or the like, so probably no real impact on the student ticket market.

I had to google St. Helena because I am not caught up on Napoleon and now I feel bad about myself.
|1 week 1 day ago||I thin you overestimate the||
I thin you overestimate the desire and willingness to sell tickets. Obviously a student could, but most students have tickets or don't plan on going to games. If you are selling outside the student market you have to deal with stubhub fees or craigslist and the tickets have to get those stickers to be used without a um id. Most people I knew just ate the cost of tickets if they couldn't sell to another student for a friend or something, its not worth the hassle, people don't buy season tickets just to sell them, even if it is cheaper.

Not gonna lie we look pretty locked into that 8/9 game which if we were on the bubble would be perfect but as of now is probably the worst place to be and its rough.

It's really the fact that they think eminem is who they should reach out to that makes me 1000 percent know this is a terrible idea.

I mean Utah might be the most physically beautiful state in the lower 48 and has some of the most amazing national parks in the world if that is something they like.
|1 week 3 days ago||The semantics matter because||
The semantics matter because it impacts how people see the world and others. The person who sees themselves as middle class while making 250k, which isn't just not near what the median income in the country is but over 4 times it, is going to see the world differently than if they were brought up acknowleding that they had more wealth, resources, and privilidge than 90% of the country. If you asked this woman if she thought she was better off financially than 90% of the country she would probably disagree with you. I don't see the world as only 3 economic classes. The family making 250k is not in the same realm as the person making 2 million who is not in the same realm as the person who has a 10 million dollar inheritance set up in a trust fund. But the person making 250k is certainly not in the same situation as the family making 60k no matter where they chose to buy a house. Semantics matter because it highlights differences in the way people see the world.
