Please no foreign prospects. I may just be scarred from Darko, but they seem to be way more boom or bust than the guys fresh out of college.

If by struggling you mean every player we sign isn't top 100, then yes. But the 2014 class included two Rivals top 100 players in Chatman (25th) and Wilson (86th). 2013 was a three man class consisting of Donnal (111th), Irvin (24th) and Walton (37th).

A lot of that has to do with the style of basketball Michigan plays. They don't value low post touches, preferring to go with a pick and roll game (of which they've been terrific at from both a guard and big man perspective, excluding this year). As for rebounding, they don't put a high priority on offensive rebounds, preferring to get back on defense instead. They tend to use big men to clear space when it comes to defensive rebounding, which is why you see a decent rebounding distribution amongst the guards. I believe this done so that the offense can get out in transition faster (another strength over the past few years).
I think Bacari deserves a lot of credit for turning Novak and Morgan into high-level conference players, in addition to McGary's blossoming. Horford was a solid contributor as well. His only "misses" in terms of development have been with GRIII, Smotrycz (to a degree) and the rotating big men we had this year. Even then, Bielfeldt acquitted himself nicely by season's end. Now, if we see the same sort of discombobulation at the 4/5 next year that we saw this year, then I think it might be valid to question Bacari's skills.

I would say that refs go out of their way to protect shooters (at times). The Chauncey Leg Kick has become the preferred method these days for drawing an "and one" on a jumpshot and to me is the equivalent of flopping.

A popcorn gif in this instance, to me, is rather distasteful. If Duke committed recruiting violations or paid their players, sure. But when someone is accused of sexually assaulting two women it is a no lose situation for everyone involved. I'm not going to celebrate the possibility that two girls were sexually assaulted, nor would I celebrate the possibility that someone had false accusations of this magnitude hurled at them.

You have no idea what it has to do with your post? You said you wanted a big who was offensively limited (check), can scrap (check), jump out of the gym (nope), box out (check), and provide an interior presence on defense (check). Morgan satisifes 4/5 yet you find my mentioning him to be irrelevant?
He was solid his RS FR and SO years and battled an injury and the emergence of McGary his JR year but played his best when the team needed him most both his JR and SR years. The majority of his "struggles" were on the offensive end where people complained about his inconsistency finishing.
I don't disagree that this team could use a shotblocker or some sort of defensive gamechanger, but they've also experienced a lot of success without one.
