why wasn't this in the thread?
|5 days 3 hours ago||I agree.||
And lot less moving the ball around the perimeter needlessly. The offense moved more away from the pick-and-roll tonight, which the team wasn't great at this year, and relied on motion with a few other set plays. It obviously wasn't a huge success but did well enough. Doyle was really struggling with the sick and it will probably look better when he and Spike are healthy.

He hasn't played to your praise and gets shut down often.. Why don't you hold off a bit?
|1 week 4 days ago||He didn't play well. Was||
He didn't play well. Was lazy and got benched for it. WTF! Players off the bench made up ground. When LeVert got put in nothing.
|1 week 4 days ago||He played well last year. He||
He played well last year. He has not performed up to not unrealistic expectations. Please defend his play against OSU.
|1 week 4 days ago||How are you the mother of||
How are you the mother of Caris LeVert and Jon Horford? The only people telling Jon Horford that he is an NBA prospect are his family.
|1 week 4 days ago||Lottery?||
That's not lottery and not guaranteed 1st round. Caris hasn't played well this year. Why so intent on his draft stock when he's not producing on the college level?
|1 week 4 days ago||.241||
You know that he's shooting below 25% from 3 in college this season and you think that will get better with an NBA line? He's not an NBA PF.. He just isn't.
|1 week 4 days ago||Okay Mom.||
Wake UP! 29th on Chad Ford's big board with this:
|1 week 4 days ago||Matbaugh personal attack||
This guy is intolerant to criticism against LeVert. I don't really understand it, but he compared him to Barry Sanders, Brandon Graham, Denard, Trey and Nik. He's not right.
|1 week 4 days ago||Really?||
Horford is not a good player. He would've gotten some minutes but Doyle is better. McGary was a beast and would've defintel helped.
You've previously stated that Jon Horford would be in the NBA. Anyone backing that up?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||You said they were just his||
You said they were just his bad games. I didn't. The comments were only from his play on offense. Why this comparison to Stauskas?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||That's 10 out of 15 games this||
That's actually from 10 out of 15 games this season (It got messed up when I pasted it from Word). 9 are bad. They were out of context, but in line with my criticism. Go ahead then and prove to me that my original post was so far off base and don't use last years stats.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Ad hominem and straw men will get you everywhere.||
I certainly was not any of those guys. Thanks though. Didn't miss anything.
This has gone on too long. Michigan won today. I'm happy.
EDIT: I guess I couldn't let it go because it's really what I've seen this season. Caris will be a fine basketball player and representative of my university. I'm not going to make your argument for you. Here are some selected quotes from UMhoops game recaps this season (each is a separate game and the last one is from game 1,):
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I realize that.||
That's fine. Did you compare them at the same point in the season? Nope. A:T for Nik was 2.32 (51:22) through 3 games into the conference schedule. Ast% I don't know.
Zak isn't getting the the open transition 3s this year for whatever reason. 35% is an eFG% of ~52%, which is still okay and should get better.
Re: Last year's front line. If we just compare the 5's:
Horford, Morgan, Bielfeldt: 11 ppg and 10.3 rpg
Doyle, Donnal, Bielfeldt: 15.4 ppg and 7.6 rpg
Translates? I don't care about the NBA.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I agree.||
I just read your comment above mine. I don't go to the open threads very much anymore. Almost never because everyone is way too histrionic. So I don't know the criticism you're talking about. This was on the front page, and I felt it was overly complimentary. Maybe it was just to balance the other stuff you mentioned.
More to the point on Caris. He's a good player and has had some great games. He has potential, which makes him attractive to the NBA. Do you think he's a better player than Nik, Trey, or Hardaway? He can't find open guys in transition. He takes bad shots and dribbles into bad spots routinely. I gave some stats above. I don't think his overall numbers this year are representative with his only games where he scored 20+ were Hillsdale, UD, Nicholls State and NJIT (I was working during that one and didn't search hard for a replay).
You said that he doesn't have anybody around him. He has 2 PGs that shoot the three really well and can get into the lane (just don't ask them to make a lay-up this season). He has Zak, who is usually pretty deadly from behind the line. He has guys on the frontline that were a lot more highly recruited than Morgan and Horford. The rest of the team admittedly has flaws, but they're not getting called a 'King' on the front page.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||double post. apologies.||
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I may be in the minority.||
I haven't been that impressed with Caris this season. He's been too inconsistent and mediocre for a big chunk of the season. In the 6 games prior to PSU he was 22-66 from the field and his assist:turnover was just above 1 (18:17).
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Someone||
I guess maybe I was that someone who linked it the day beofre this post. Fantastic job on expanding on it. Most in that thread were willing to just say "MONEY" and move on.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||When was he going to the NBA?||
He's tall and he plays ball, but how's he supposed to get a nice, fat NBA contract?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Josh Smith||
He was +21 in +/- over 26 minutes tonight against Lebron-less Cavs. Don-don-don-don don-don-don-dodn... He still sucks.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||9 points in 41 minutes reason||
9 points in 41 minutes of the last three games reason enough?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Did you miss the part where||
Did you miss the part where he wasn't retained by Sark? He was kinda unemployed.
EDIT: I was too late. See above.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Everyone says they can't afford it||
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Auburn, Florida and LSU have||
Auburn, Florida and LSU have also won recent MNC... The ACC, B1G and Pac12 have won how many in that time? 1... I don't like them either, but don't say what you just said without something to back it up.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Why bring RR into this?||
One could/should say RR's team dominated all but the first 10 minutes of that game. I just don't think that now that we have Harbaugh anyone should be so dismissive of RR's talent. The guy is a great football coach and had a top 10 team at AZ with a freshman at QB and starting RB (got hurt in the 1st half on a helmet-to-helmet hit). Also, he may be the only one to beat Oregon this season... Cu'mong man!
|3 weeks 6 days ago||AFAIK||
He only directly coached one of those guys (Suh) for 2 years. Ahh?
|5 weeks 1 day ago||This thread is depressing||
I came here to say something negative, but it's all been overdone before. This team shouldn't be that bad when it's all said and done. I think an NCAA tourney bid is still likely and this team needs a season changing moment like a comeback win today. Go Blue!
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Not the 4||
Duncan would almost certainly not play the "4" if Cam is there... The system is all about interchangeable parts. 2-4 is really not that big of a difference.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Nope.||
Pulled up the pic and was ready to embed as a favor.... Nope. Not cool. There are plenty of people already making fun of how he looks. He doesn't deserve it from our fans.
