The D-League as petri dish for weird basketball concepts.

|1 week 2 days ago||Not by my count||
Even with the most recent attrition, Michigan has awarded 82 scholarships for next year. Glasgow is as much a walk-on now as Kovacs was so I'm going to count that as an allotted scholarship moving the number to 83. So, in reality, Michigan banked two scholarships to supplement a small class next year. With no obvious candidates in this year's class, banking two makes a lot more sense than taking a couple of flyers.
But, yeah, I don't know what happened with the retraction of the Montae scholarship as he appeared to be a very good payer at a position of need. Although he demonstrated character issues by signing with Sparty ;-)

But because you took highlights primarily from the last WC there are no clips from this WC's winner: Los Cafeteros.

is the most intense rivalry I have ever seen, first-hand.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Yes||
Although short it was the most intense rivalry that I can remember.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Not smart||
You need some basic reading comprehension classes. Hoke met individually with members of staffs: so, thus far we know that he had several meeting and at each meeting only one member of the staff was present. Next we hear that Hoke fired Borges at the meeting: so now we know that Hoke fired Borges at the meeting that he had with Borges. Or did you think that that he fired Borges at the meeting he had with another member of his staff?

I meant "You win the internets, Sir."

You win the interests, sir.

Congratulations. You win the internet today with that post.

This just sounds like a bad excuse. You predicted wrong. Period. Life goes on. But we really don't need an explanation about why you predicted wrong. You will be judged by how well you predict; not by how well you explain your bad predictions.
|17 weeks 11 hours ago||Agree||
I generally agree with your post and I think that the defense has generally played well enough to win. It's just frustrating that we have true freshman playing big minutes and failing at critical junctures in the game.
|17 weeks 11 hours ago||Young||
We are still pretty young and those young players are making awful mistakes. Let's just take true freshman Stribbling as an example. If he makes either of two plays against. PSU, we win that game. If he doesn't give up the 4th down conversion against Nebraska, we win that game. Heck, even if he gives up the conversion but tackles the receiver, we're in OT right now.

I watched the Final 4 in Cuzco. There are two different bars that can hook you up. They are right next to each other on the second floor overlooking the Plaza de Armas. One has a biker motif and the other is more generic.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed||
I, too, picked this game. If I remember correctly, we missed an extra point which would have led to a tie game. Because we were then down by one we had to go for the on-side kick which we recovered and then kicked the winning field goal as time expired.

No way we should have won that game. But we did.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Not very constructive.||
That type of "wondering" (without looking at the facts) is not very constructive. Bringing up issues without even caring if the facts support the hypotheses does not further the discussion. Would I be playing devil's advocate if I wonder whether Indy Wolverine is an idiot? And then hide behind the "I was only asking a question?" line. Bad journalists do this all of the time and it is not productive.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||Your point seems pretty clear to me.||
And I agree.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||One complaint||
He needs to leave the written commentary on screen a little longer. I missed the "4 points" the first time through.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Good one.||
|27 weeks 2 days ago||I count one||
If we had two tackles then I'd agree but Cole is slotted for guard and JBB is our only tackle prospect for 2014.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Agree||
I think that you made my point better than I made it. If a third string CB is better than any of your safeties except the starting safeties, doesn't it make sense to recruit more safeties (Nicholson)?
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Avery couldn't win the CB||
Avery couldn't win the CB spots and Norfleet couldn't win the RB spot so they failed at those positions. That does not mean, however, that they have failed as players. I am excited to see what Norfleet can do in the slot and Avery seems to have the coaches' confidence at safety.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||I didn't say that||
Nobody said that Reon was a failed corner. My point was that whomever (Reon or anyone else) we move to safety is someone who could not win the CB spot.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Bad rebuttal||
Who said that Reon was a failed corner? You said that the S position could be supplemented with a CB. Whoever moves over will, by definition, be someone who couldn't win the CB spot.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Starting point||
I agree that Wilson and Thomas make an excellent starting point for next year but nobody can predict injury or player development. It is a very thin position depth-wise and moving a failed corner to shore up a depleted position group may work but is not optimal. I'm curious why we are full at S yet gave out scholarships recently to an unheralded LB and CB. Wouldn't we have been better off taking a 4 star S instead?
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Odd||
Kinda weird as we will only have five scholarship safeties next year and that assumes Furman comes back.

Tried to find a place to watch the Alabama game last year. Fail.

I'm pretty certain that Trent went to St. Iggy.
