Everyone here seems very skeptical of this hapenning, and I'm not saying it definitely will, but there's definitely a shot it does. There have been rumblings of this for a while, and non-ESPN based rumblings.
If this does happen though odds are Cleveland will try to land Kevin Love. Love has said if Lebron goes to Cleveland he'd be willing to be traded and sign an extension there. If the Cavs give up some combination Thompson, Varejao, Bennett, Waiters and some draft picks, you could very realistically see a Cleveland team built around Lebron, Love, Irving and Wiggins for years to come which would be very scary.

Those red helmets are sick. I'm a fan.

I've stood next to Peppers in person a few times. I'm 6 foot on a good day and he was shorter than me, my height at best

If the US loses, first hope is for Portugal to win because unless they win by 5+ the US will advance.
If Ghana does win, Ghana advances if they win by 2+ or the US loses by 2+.
Then after that is goals scored. So the US wants as high scoring a loss as possible and as low scoring a win for Ghana as possible.
After that is head-to-head

I'm a fan of it. If this were a Michigan commit doing this at OSU we'd all be singing his praises. It doesn't seem like he was an asshole all day or whatever, after it was all done he decided to take a harmless picture repping the school he's going to play for.

This argument literally makes no sense.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Yes||
Because choosing your first semester classes are EXACTLY like a job interview.
The people who are hired over the summer to help students choose classes have extensive training on how to help students. They know what classes they should be taking depending on what they are interested, and the thing that is the most counter productive is when a student comes in with wrong ideas about classes based on what friends/family/random MGoBlog posters tell them.
The one thing the advisors hate more than anything is when students are fed information about classes from people who have no idea what they are talking about. Even orientation leaders aren't allowed to give recommendations about classes because we don't have enough training.
But yes, instead of listening to people whose job it is to do this, this kid should listen to random posters on MGoBlog who haven't been at Michigan for years and have no idea what they're talking about.

I'm currently an orientation leader this summer at Michigan. My advice:
Ignore all advice you get here online at MGoBlog. There are Academic Advisors and Academic Peer Advisors whose job it is to help you choose classes. You'll meet with them multiple times over orientation. Trust them and ask them these questions, not random people on a blog.

I think Kevin Ollie will be higher than most people expect

Even if we were to begin negative recruiting what would we say to a kid like Mike Weber?

More expensive than MSU? Surprising

SMU will be a tough matchup. Borderline NCAA team last year, best two players return as juniors, they bring in a top 5 recruit, and they have Larry Brown as their coach. This will be a fun game to watch.

I loved this article BISB. Well done
|11 weeks 4 days ago||I||
I got this e-mail as a student who already has season tickets. Not only are they desperate, they don't even know who they should be targeting with these e-mails.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Yes||
Because it's KCP's fault that the Piston's lost, and thus by default is a less impressive effort.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Love it||
Glad it doesn't have any "Team 13_" stuff.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Assuming||
Assuming Irvin and Walton make sizeable jumps, which I think is a fair assumption knowing Beilein's track record with sophomore's, I think we're a team that ends the season in a comprable position to Oklahoma this past year.
A solid tourney team, above the so called "bubble", and we might sneak into the top 25 a few times during the year, but nothing overly special. Sweet Sixteen is probably the ceiling.
And how nice is it to say Sweet Sixteen ceiling is nothing special. All Hail Beilein.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||If||
If you want to be very positive about this...
If McGary, GR3, and Stauskas were to all return, we would have been 1 scholarship over the limit with our recruiting class that's coming in. Someone would have had to leave, so this opens up that possibility
But yeah not good. Horford would have gotten some substantial minutes next year, he would have been a key piece. And now, once again, we have no seniors on the roster for next year
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Based on the article||
The article says that this conversation took place about a week or so before NSD, took place about a #1 ranked player at his position, and obviously happened at an SEC school.
Im also assuming the kid was uncommitted at the time and committed on NSD, just based on the wording of the bagman's quote and the fact that he was still being recruited at the time of this meeting.
Looking at 247's list of players from this past year, just briefly looking through it, Marlon Humphrey and Rashaan Evans names both jump out.
Humphrey was visiting Mississippi State January 26th, and he committed to Bama on NSD.
Evans was visiting Auburn January 24th, and he committed to Bama on NSD.
Both are ranked #1 at their position by 247.
These are two of your candidates as to who was being payed, thus making MSU, Auburn, and Bama schools that may be paying players.
So no one is shocked.

Lunardi still is counting Maryland as ACC I guess, or else we'd have 8 teams and the ACC would have 7.
And since they should be B1G, unless we only played Maryland once during the regular season we wouldn't be able to play them in the round of 32. Even if we did only play them once, I'm sure the committee would prefer not to have us potentially meet in the round of 32.

As long as you feel the same way about Lewan/Gibbons
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Even||
Even if that's true, I can tell you as someone who is college aged, teens don't care either way. I'm 20, and I wasn't alive for the Fab Five, and none of these kids were either.
For as long as these kids have been alive, except for these recent years, State football and our basketball were awful. Now this is changing. When they were good before that is irrelevant. Whether it was the 50's or 90's, to kids these days (including myself), if it was before we were born, they both carry the same weight, which is not a lot.

Right now Michigan basketball is equivalent to Michigan State football. After some pretty dark years, the program has been revived and has been elite the past few years.
