|20 hours 39 min ago||I was never||
motivated in school until I got to Michigan and realized if I didn't get serious I could be the dumbest one in the class. If you unwind that you get to I was never challenged in any compelling way in high school.
|3 days 16 min ago||They misread||
the signs. They thought it was a race between JB(eilein) and Cal(ipari) when it was JB to Cal.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Have you heard||
of Camp Sanderson?
|3 days 11 hours ago||I don't care||
if he brings in top 10 recruits...I care about his record. And his record is a result of what he recruits (basketball IQ, coach-ability, work ethic, academics, etc.). If kids aren't buying that then so be it.
|3 days 19 hours ago||No, Brown is||
not the standard. Beilein usually gets in on guys early and they blow up and head elsewhere.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Yes, it's shocking.||
He's going to the opposite coast to play for a school that has gotten as far as the Sweet Sixteen once in the last 50 years and for a coach who has gotten to the Big Dance once.

family in Michigan.
|4 days 1 hour ago||I don't know but I||
think Bacari's tweet yesterday was really bad form. That's not the thing to do with a kid who has managed the process like Brown has.
|4 days 1 hour ago||I continue to read||
elsewhere he was never following Bacari or anyone besides Hatch. I don't know what the kid is going to do but a lot of the "signs" aren't accurate.
|4 days 1 hour ago||Did you actually see that||
or read it? I'm reading that he never followed Bacari.
|4 days 3 hours ago||How does one do||
a last minute push with a kid who didn't want any relationships with coaches until he decided?
|4 days 8 hours ago||That tweet may||
have been bad form given how Brown has played this.
|4 days 20 hours ago||What part will||
be bullshit? That I was wrong about Kansas or that he's a thoughtful kid?
|4 days 22 hours ago||I really thought||
Kansas was the sleeper. Adidas and a good combination of talent and experience. So little is known about Brown but he seems like a thoughtful guy with huge aspirations and a businesslike approach to achieving them.

you don't know.
|6 days 23 hours ago||^ This.||
He verbals to Michigan and then shows up big at a tourney where there are a lot of eyes on him.
|6 days 23 hours ago||Michigan hadn't||
offered. From what I've read ND was leading prior to the Michigan offer.
|1 week 2 hours ago||Ha, ha||
at those who wanted JB to wait for others to rank him, others who know less than he does.
|1 week 7 hours ago||Orange Crush.||
It is infused with a time travel substance that takes me back to age 7, my bike, scrounged up change and the corner gas station.
|1 week 8 hours ago||I don't. Kentucky||
will be young and inexperienced. A program with an experienced foundation and talented roster (even if absent a true blue chipper) is a better fit for a guy looking to audition for the NBA.
|1 week 22 hours ago||From what I've seen||
Michigan offers as good of, if not better, combination of talent and experience as any other suitor. Caris is first round talent, Walton and Donnal were a top 100, 4*, Irvin a top 25, 5* and Chatman a top 30, 4*.
|1 week 1 day ago||I like Michigan's||
chances. Kentucky is going to be young. They are talented of course but Michigan offers a better career launch platform in terms of experienced platform. Add Adidas and family in Michigan. Cal is led by a defensive minded coach. I have to believe Brown would lean toward a coach known as an offensive genius. And again, he'd be playing along side guys who know the system.
|1 week 1 day ago||He did deny it...||
but it was a direct 2014 quote from him. I think there are a couple of them out there. This much has to be true...it's a factor of one degree or another.
|1 week 1 day ago||Melo hasn't been||
a guy I've ever wished was a Piston.
|1 week 3 days ago||Agreed. It's||
almost cruel with it's beautiful melodies and devastating lyrics.
|1 week 6 days ago||No, they don't.||
Caris is a probable first round pick and Walton is a highly ranked PG. That's like adding 2 blue chippers to a roster that LEARNED the Beilein system while they were down. The results with them last year doesn't take into account they were working with two freshmen and a first year starter with an expanded role. If you look back both Morris and Burke benefited from in-season adjustments after struggling.
|1 week 6 days ago||Well he's had to||
play a lot of freshmen in recent years without the benefit of a Junior and Senior experience. Being able to absorb one on a team that will have several upperclassmen starting should be much easier.
|1 week 6 days ago||Tough choice for||
the kid. I think, if it's between Cal and Michigan, the Wolverines might have an advantage. Beilein is considered an offensive genius, Martin a defensive minded coach with an emphasis on toughness. Geography and family ties favor the Wolverines. Michigan will upperclassman experience which is a perfect platform for a star. The conference gets plenty of national attention and air play.
