Plus Senior MAAR and Duncan

If X can play this way on O the rest of the year we're a whole new team. Next year also looks a lot brighter too.

Great fucking stretch by MAAR there. No Walton or Wagner and he takes over and sparks a 7-0 run. Solidifying himself as the third option on offense and a good one.

I don't think you can blame lack of Mo for those. Both were transition buckets that Mo reall wouldn't have helped with. Also he'd been playing pretty much the entire half, he needs some rest.

Zak Irvin is the reason we're not a half away from a season ending loss at Rutgers.

Prior to our win yesetrday Lunardi had as 10 seed playing South Carolina in the first. I'd guess we're up to a 9 seed now but that bracket also proved Lunardi's incompetence, since the committee wouldn't have a rematch in the first round.

Not buying the idea the Koenig out is a good thing for Wisconsin.
Koenig has been struggling and Trice has some decent numbers, but it's on very small sample sizes. Koenig has attempted more 3's than Trice has FGs this year for comparison.
Trice's numbers have also dropped significantly in conference play. His last game against NW was his first in double digits all conference, and before this last games he had 8 conference games with 4 points or less compared to 3 with 5 or more (5, 7 and 7 points).
I'm not buying that a true freshman in his first start ever, on the road, having to play an expanded role at PG, who has been struggling in conference, is better than a senior PG with Final Four experience, who's generally a good player. I'll have to see that to believe it.
Also keep in mind Trice was going to play regardless. This isn't an issue of "is Trice or Keonig better" (it's Koenig), it's "is 28 minutes of Koenig and 12 of Trice better than 25 of Trice and 15 of whoever Wisconsin's 3rd string PG is." That has a much more obvious answer.

If you live in the area and can go please do! We need Crisler packed and loud tonight. I wish I could be there

I don't know what to think about this.
Looking past it being MSU, I think the ideal situation here (ideal being relative, I can't think of a better word) is that MSU is being very proactive and that the alleged assualt is more of the Grant Perry type than Baylor.
That being said, the fact that a staff member is involved is concerning. Specifically this quote:
"Separate from the criminal and Title IX investigations, the university administration is retaining an external law firm to conduct a thorough and independent investigation into football program staff members’ compliance with university policy in connection with the allegations."
It could end up being nothing, but bringing in an external law firm brings up PSU and Baylor thoughts. This could potentially have far reaching effects into MSU's program.

High school sophomore aka future UCLA player and brother of future top 3 NBA pick Lonzo Ball.

Posted after you but same conclusion. 17-20 seems like a reasonable guess.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||There||
There are 9 seniors on the depth chart for next year. Ther are another 11 juniors who will be finishing their 4th year next year, and of those I see 7 that could potentially be candidates to not get a 5th year. I don't think all 7 will be gone obviously as there's plenty of open competition for some of these guys to cement a 5th year.
If you say 4/5 end up leaving, that gives you 14/15 spots to work with. Between transfers and other stuff popping up, my guess is we see a class of between 18-20 next year.

I just don't understand how a CS grad from Michigan can't build a functioning site when we're all offering to throw money at him to do so. And then he refuses to address any of our concerns. How arrogant can one be?

Awesome to see the staff working on a podcast instead of the non-functioning site.

Bama insiders are saying Solomon's still in play. Rumors are he's told one or both staffs that he's coming.
Basically no one has a read on him and it could go either way. This probably has 0 bearing on Solomon.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Honestly||
Probably not indicitive of anything. They just had a 4-star DT Akial Byers not qualify and Mathis is now the lone DT commit in their class. My guess is this has no bearing on Solomon.

I would use it if it wouldn't crash every time I tried. Seriously, just re-downloaded it because the HD app is gone and it crashes before anything can load.

We didn't play Nebraska, so I'm assuming that's a typo on the Nate Johnson front

Lorenz putting his in is one of the best signs we could hope for. Lorenz has been hesitant to do so for a while so changing it now means he must have some good info. Considering Solomon said he knows where he's going, that makes me very positive. Unless Solomon is telling multiple schools he's coming, I have a very good feeling about this tomorrow.

I'm not arguing Spencer's article isn't political. I'm saying posting it here saying donate to a humanitarian cause isn't.

My guess would be if the politics are "Here's a political person/event/fact and an opinion on it" then no politics. If it's "a group of people need help because of a political action so let's donate money", I think most reasonable people would be okay with that.
|4 weeks 13 hours ago||You're||
You're ignoring the fact that this is a cause that Spencer supports every year. It's not like he just decided today to have this drive because Fuck Trump. This is a cause he's supported passionately many times in the past, without any political reasoning. He brought it up now because of a political action, but that's because now more than ever this cause he is so passionate about needs support.
And once again, Spencer's fundraise has now raised over 31K in less than 4 hours. Sharing that on this blog has helped. A real life difference is being made. If you think it's worth bitching and moaning about that difference because "it's political" (which it's not) and "the rules of the blog are broken" and "I don't want to have to inconvenience myself on a sports blog", and you think those are valid reasons to not have this post here making a positive impact in the world, I don't know what to say to you. This is not a political post, it's a humanitarian one. I don't see what benefit you get from trying to twist this into blog rules are being broken, when once again they're not, and how even if they were that matters more than the impact this cause is making.
|4 weeks 13 hours ago||First||
First off, the drive is not "completely political." A completely political drive would be one funding a certain candidate or party. This is a humanitarian drive, with polticial undertones. As I said to Cue, if you are unable to separate the politics of a good humanitarian cause from the cause itself, that's your issue. Especially one that the site has supported and promoted in the past.
Nothing about the post on this site was political. The OP was not political. Spencer's posts was political. If you have issues with that, take it up with Spencer Hall. Nothing about this posts was political on MGoBlog until Cue made it so. Saying "Now more than ever" is not political. It's a statment of fact. Regardless of political affiliation, saying refugee orginzations need support now more than ever is a fact. Using those words as justification for Cue's incoherent rants and politicizing of this post is a massive stretch.
Also, that's not all Cue said. He also brought up Obama's 2011 Iraqi refugee plan. Saying he's tired of political posts was not even close to all he said, especially since this post wasn't political.
I never once said I'm a patriot or anything of the like. Making this a self congratulating post was never the intention nor has it become that. The point of this post was to raise money for a good cause. Sure that discussion can be had elsewhere. And it would have, until Cue made it happen here. Otherwise none of this would have happened.
Spencer's drive is making a world of difference. As someone posted below, already over $10K has been raised to help refugees. If it weren't for the fact that this drive was linked here, I would have never seen, and neither would many others. Posting this drive here made a real difference and allowed people to support and donate to a humanitarian cause.
You're saying you want to be ale to come to this site and not have to deal with real posts. So then don't. Don't read this post. No one made you read this post or comment here. Your argument is that it's an inconvenience to have to read about real world issues on a sports blog, ignoring the fact that this post has had positive effects in real life. Giving people an outlet to support refugees and donate money to a real thing makes me not care about the inconvenience of you having to read a not even political post, especially when you could just ignore it.
|4 weeks 13 hours ago||Then||
Then stop coming here? Like I don't know what else to tell you champ.
If you're incapable of looking at a humanitarian post with political undetones and separating the politics of it from the humantarian side, that's your issue and not ours. Everyone else here seemed perfectly good at doing that. If your incompetence makes you "sick of it", then either leave or learn to deal with it. Because based on all the posts and votes so far, this is clearly a you issue and not an MGoBlog issue.

Yes, because I started this thread. Once again you've shown fantastic reading comprehension skills today.
