the one you replied to is a troll account. It used a capital i instead of lower case L in the Wolverine part. Looks identical on here.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Like I said, he does on core stats||
but those ignore things like
1. Curry's early career injuries
2. that Curry barely plays 4th quarters now.
In stats rated to per 100 possessions or per 36 minutes (how the NBA usually does it, 3 quarters of play) Curry comes out significantly ahead of Thomas at this point in their careers. Also as noted, Thomas by year 6 was already in his decline, Curry at year 7 is getting better every year still. It's nearly impossible for him to improve next year... but people said that after what he did last year so who knows.
Regardless, there is no reasonable statistical measure out there that doesn't accept Curry is having most likely the best year ever right now. Traditionalists just don't like that becuase they hate all things new.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||You're smoking some funny stuff or only looking at core stats||
and acting like ppg means anything.
Per 100 possessions, how most basketball stats (probably all) should be measured, and by every measure your comparison of Curry to Isiah Thomas is just stupid and that's the best way to put it. Looking at their stats for 7th year in the NBA for each you get this comparison:
FG%: Curry 51% ; Thomas 46%
3P%: Curry 46% ; Thomas 31%
FT%: Curry 91% ; Thomas 77%
TS%: Curry 68% ; Thomas 52%
REB: Curry 7.5 ; Thomas 4.6
AST: Curry 9.3 ; Thomas 11.3
STL: Curry 2.9 ; Thomas 2.4
PTS: Curry 43.2 ; Thomas 26.3
ORt: Curry 126 ; Thomas 108
DRt: Curry 102: Thomas 106
PER: Curry 32.3 ; Thomas 18.2
Notice anything there?
tl;dr: at this point in careers as you said, Curry per possession is significantly better than Thomas was in everything except assists and defensive rating. He gets more points, rebounds, and steals - and almost as many asissts - whiile doing at a much higher shooting % across the fucking board than Thomas did. And that 7th year of career was one of Thomas's 6th best one, alread in his decliding years. Curry is literally getting better every fucking year seriously how do people post things like this and not even try fact checking?
|14 weeks 11 hours ago||Woodson is arguably the greatest DB in football history||
the modern Nickel position was basically invented for him specifically when he got a little older and lost some of his greath athletic ability - and you know what? He went on to win Defensive MVP there still and make it a meaningful position. He was still a great corner in his later years with Oakland.
You aren't the greatest ever and consistently manage to reinvent your style and adapt to changing game without knowing how to play the position.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||So far Michigan hasn't shown any interest||
sounds like because they didn't think he had any real interest in going north to Ann Arbor and just wanted a Michigan offer because it was another nice thing to add to the list. I also always thought it might be a bit related to the drama attached to Moses. It's not really his fault, but being as high profile as he's been since 8th freaking grade is a factor and could lead to a "non-Michigan attitude" type situation. No idea if that applies or not, but wouldn't be surprising.
Either way, if Michigan wants him and thinks he's serious about considering it, he'll get an offer and hear from Harbaugh plenty. Plus - wouldn't it be sweet to arguably get the #1 prospect in the nation 3 years in a row? Peppers > Gary > Moses?
|15 weeks 6 days ago||It's not really about merchandise||
it's a joint business with his life coach dude whose name I can't exactly remember. The dude is one of those new-age homeopathy kind of guys that practices alternative medicine and pushes preventative health measure rather reactionary type medicines. Brady swears by it, and says his friend's methods saved his career after he had that infected surgery and was told by 'traditional' doctors he may not play again at all and not for another year if he did.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Twitter bios||
that is the only place people are getting that info from
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Don't be so naive as to relay something||
a well known recruiting reporter directly said?
Maybe you should direct that Trieu since he's the one who reported it?
|17 weeks 1 day ago||I am about 97.8% sure every parent of every recruit||
has a pretty damned good idea where their child's commitment status stands.
Again, remember when people freaked out because pushed Swenson out with no warning and didn't tell him anything at all? Or when we learned, whoa, that wasn't true at all - the coaches had told him his performance was lacking, asked him to come up campus multiple times, etc. and he didn't improve or make any of those requested camp visits. They'd told him months before he may not have a spot in the class if he didn't pick it up, but when it just came from his side initially it sounded like a long time recruit was blindsided and booted out.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||It sounded really bad from Erik Swenson too at first||
then we learned more information and oh, it wasn't so bad actually. Maybe stop making up your mind and judgments on partial information?
|17 weeks 6 days ago||I saw the "scholarship pull" on the scroller of ESPN yesterday||
basically saying Michigan sideswipped Swenson and something about NCAA rules (I think saying not against them technically). Made it sound like Michigan was sketchy as hell in the process but this new information makes a world of difference.
People best need be backing up off Harbaugh now, pulling out pitchforks without all the info.
|18 weeks 12 hours ago||What about the fact they don't think he can play here?||
What do you as a coach? Maybe tell the recruit earlier if possible, but do you take a kid you don't think is still good enough for your program out of "loyalty" and let him sit on bench for 1-2 years before suggesting a transfer or do you just do it now and cut the cord? It may be shitty, but isn't 4 years of playing and maybe a couple starting years at Northwestern trump never playing and being suggested to transfer after a couple years at Michigan?
|18 weeks 1 day ago||while I agree, fwiw||
he has more than 2 weeks. Signing day isn't a deadline but a beginning of the period as I'm sure you know. He can take a couple monthe to do visits and re-evaluate things if needed. Options may be more limited yeah, but not like he's 100% screwed if not signed in 2 weeks somewhere.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||What he means is||
when he saw the recruit got an offer from Texas A&M, he checked that recruit's twitter follows and the 3 most recent (after getting offer) follows were TAMU girls.
|19 weeks 7 hours ago||To put it less cryptic (somehow, Brian was really clear)||
he did not take any official visits anywhere. Not even Michigan.
You can not take an official NCAA visit unless your grades are in good standing. Michigan wanted him in the class and didn't push him out. Put it together.
|19 weeks 14 hours ago||He's not a safety||
and even so, a safety set NCAA interception record 2 years ago.
Plus, he basically dropped 4-5 INTs this past season as it was. I'd say those numbers are well in possible range, but fewer receiving yards, more rushing, more sacks or tackles for loss, and a return TD or two.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||Stanford Samuels the Third is a baller name||
Follow your former teammates and soon to be coach ( Bush SR coming here right?) to the promised land!
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Considering Sam and most of the other recruiting writers||
talk directly to recruits, their family, and their coaches - I think they knw a good bit more than you do. Of course it's highly speculative but they're dealing with the decisions of teenagers being pulled all kinds of directions with constnatly changing goals. Still, it's a lot more than just guesswork.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Define pan out?||
He was behind Graham Glasgow who was
1. two full years ahead of him and
2. really damn good
If he doesn't get the start at center next year it'll be because Cole moved over and see #2 above because Cole is already pretty damn good.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||I cannot wait 8 months||
|20 weeks 5 days ago||He's pretty quiet||
and doesn't talk to people much it seems. Especially reporter types; I think his last interview came from a student at his school or something like that.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||How many spots are we down to now?||
Assuming Scott is very likely gone.
It sounds like Michigan is probably in the lead for Gary, Crawford, DeLance, and Young. Would likely get Jones or Jackson for LB, in the top 2 or 3 for both Levi and Murphy at DE, and top 2 for Hill and Long as DBs.
I'd assume those first 3 get spots regardless if they want one, but I think that leaves just 1 (maybe 2?) known scholarships for anyone else.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||Not offense to defense||
but Texas A&M had two guys drafted pretty highly as tackles that started out as a QB and TE. Matthews and Joeckel were both like top 6 picks
|23 weeks 12 hours ago||Taking on blocks is as much motivation and skill||
as it is size. Joe Bolden has pretty typical ILB size and really struggled taking on blocks for a long time and even when he got better at making contact still hasn't been great at shedding / picking a side
|23 weeks 5 days ago||da fuq did I just read?||
too early for drugs, man.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Theodore Sturgeon||
approves of your username and the message.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||Not the exact same||
but remember that other guy with the crazy impressive workout videos that had people including Brian giddy for him to get here? He even had that one super quick footwork video with Jungle Beats playing.. he's done a lot so far.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||Did Durkin go to Jackson's home||
and tell him he wasn't going anywhere the day before accepting another job? It sounds like Muschamp had already accepted the South Carolina job but not announced it and still went to see recruits telling them he'd stay at Auburn. That seems a bit different from Durkin who seems to still be going on recruiting visits for Michigan even after being announced as Maryland coach oddly.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||I think||
he was counting on Dymonte to attack his blocker better and force Elliott upfield sooner maybe? It does seem odd for sure how he started out so deep but is making his turn virtually behind Elliott and having to chase instead of cut off.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Whelp, can probably kiss all those visiting recruits bye as well||
