Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Rooting for India, but don't think they'll win it all despite their current streak. I'd be happy with beating Australia and getting into the finals

"Brandon's contract stipulates that if he's fired without cause prior to Jan. 1, 2016, the university must pay him his remaining base salary and his remaining deferred compensation."
For the lawyers out there, is this debacle enough to demonstrate cause?

Highly recommend doing the classes at U of M-Dearborn. Much cheaper than Ann Arbor, and the credits transfer over. They're pretty flexible with offering night classes too if I remember right (from about 20 years ago) I did Calc III and Linear Algebra there and only had to take Differential Equations at Ann Arbor to finish up the math requirement for engineering. Added bonus- if you set your sights outside of Ann Arbor for undergraduate, you still have the U of M name on a transcript.

On the Bielfeldt/Pitchford note, IIRC the last scholarship came down to Bielfeldt and Larry Nance Jr. Nance is doing really well for Wyoming- top 50 defensive rebounding %age, good offensive rating and true shooting percentage, and he's a high usage player. For a staff that has had success with undervalued offspring of NBA players, always seemed like an odd choice to go with Bielfeldt over him.

If you believe the Ohio posters, the shadiness is due to Meyer asking him to delay his visit as they think they have a better shot with another TE prospect (Gesick)

Really love the recruit ratings vs Nth best recruit plots...was wondering how someone could come up with a quick visual to show something like this, and this perfectly shows it off. Nice work!
|2 years 17 weeks ago||There is an interesting post||
There is an interesting post on thebiglead about how Michigan is actually better on defense than the defensive efficiency stat indicates:
Crux of the argument is that they are up among the nation's leaders in "shutdown stretches" defined as a 4 min period in which the opponent does not score. The article doesn't speak to when these stretches occurred, so some of these could be biased to lower ranked opponents or less critical game situations, but it's an interesting stat...
|2 years 17 weeks ago||Keep with the current system-||
Keep with the current system- McGary off the bench, but keep giving him more minutes. Makes sense to have McGary in for Morgan when LeVert spells Hardaway. Hardaway is a much better rebounder than LeVert, so McGary's better rebounding over Morgan is needed.

Added bonus...I believe McGary's 20 min now qualify him in the kenpom rankings for rebounding

I was wondering about that too. Big Puppy seems more appropriate for McGary, with the energy and excitable nature and youthful mistakes, but I've seen other places refer to GRIII as Big Puppy (http://thehoopdoctors.com/online2/2012/01/michigan-recruit-glenn-robinso... for example)

According to some Iowa friends, he was always a high floor, low ceiling type of guy. Ideally an energy guy/6th man off the bench (which is his role now), but started because of total lack of talent at Iowa when McCaffery got there

|2 years 19 weeks ago||Mitch McGary||
Interesting to note that if he had the requisite minutes (he plays in 36.5% of minutes, kenpom requires a minimum of 40% of minutes to count in rebounding stats), he'd be 2nd in the COUNTRY in offensive rebounding percentage and 30th in defensive rebounding percentage.
