|10 hours 48 sec ago||Even earlier||
Or you could argue he should have left even earlier when he was still all youth and potential and he was a projected lottery pick based on that.
|10 hours 4 min ago||Not an expert||
I'm not a defensive schemes expert, but seems like re-signing Fairley (the disruptor) and playing him with Wilfork's plugger type would work well
|18 hours 11 min ago||But he would still take up a scholarship for that||
But he would still take up a scholarship for that year he isn't playing but Caris/Walton/Spike are right?

Scott Brooks is not a very good coach though... you have 2 players who are at an elite level and good pieces around them, they have under-achieved
|6 days 2 hours ago||I mean I kind of get it as||
I mean I kind of get it as the Blazers are playing small with Aldridge, and no other big men, so the Thunder did the same (Ibaka being the big)...to me that just sounds like McGary would have dominated whoever was defending him though.
|6 days 2 hours ago||Put me in coach!||
Blazers are getting back in to this game, put McGary back in!

sorry, forgot speculation (along with RAGE!! and cats) is what the interwebz does best. Continue on

so wouldn't it make sense to, you know, wait on the video to come out? Instead of fueling speculation on a video that may or may not exist
|1 week 6 days ago||KJ McDaniels||
KJ left (guaranteed) money on the table and fought for it to be a 1 year contract instead of the standard 4 year just so he could get to free agency quicker.... from Philly's POV, it was cheap non-guaranteed labor. there's an ESPN/Grantland article abt it.
|1 week 6 days ago||Lucky||
Harbaugh is sending out offers to tons of 2016 defensive backs, so it seems he sees it too... a redshirt freshman is better than a true freshman

I was surprised Prince was in the league last year, and he looked too old to contribute then... Love Tayshaun, but I don't want to give up any asset for him right now.
|2 weeks 17 hours ago||Tryouts||
I always wondered this. Do they run the first few sessions like tryouts? or just let the talent reveal itself naturally through regular practices?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I think his comment was more||
I think his comment was more towards a date when we'll definitively know what Smith's decision is ... don't think he was trying to imply that earlier classes would help Michigan.
I wouldn't blame Smith for being over this entire thing and going radio silent until he showed up to classes in the summer (obviously even then, he would tell the school itself as soon as he knew).

True but just this year, OSU had to rely on their 3rd string QB.
|4 weeks 14 hours ago||Makes Sense||
Makes sense to always have a lot of options at the most important spot on the field.

Well this in particular seems to be because of an UCLA coaching change (DC leaving for the Falcons) so an understandable change of heart
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Canteen||
Didn't Canteen run a good number of WR1/WR2 type routes last year?? Wouldn't be surprised to see him appear all over the field this year.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Degree||
Since he's graduating with his degree, I would guess only positively.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Relatively new||
And I think it was only recently that they put the immediate eligibility part of the rule into effect, maybe 6-7 years ago? (quick google did not lead to anything definitive on dates of the rule change)
|5 weeks 11 hours ago||Rutgers commits||
Seems like we are offering a lot of Rutgers commits lately ... maybe the Jersey HS coach UM is supposed to be hiring is already putting some work in?
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Marquette||
That's why it's weird living in Milwaukee.... similar colors and similar looking 'M' on their apparel looks just enough like Michigan's to fool me sometimes.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Does anyone care??||
I get the principle. But are you really that curious what Lynch has to say? (and remember, I'm asking about Lynch specifically)
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Really??||
He made bad moves that noone else would have made that led to the Pistons downfall, BUT he made moves noone else would have made that led to a ring and East supremacy for 5 years
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Ewing Theory??||
Reminds me of Bill Simmon's "Ewing Theory". When Levert was out there, everyone expected Caris to create all of the offense and may have deferred to him instead of being aggessive in creating shots for themselves.
*Bill Simmon's Ewing Theory: A team improves because it's best player goes down, often because of either over-reliance on that one player (Caris Levert), that player not being as good as thought in the first place or that player's style conflicting with what's best for the team.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Grad School Transfer||
I think the plan was to redshirt Dakich so that after he graduates from Michigan he can still have a 5th year of eligibility to play basketball/attend grad school somewhere else.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||1/9 at least||
That and develop Butt into an All- B1G Tight End!
|6 weeks 3 days ago||All Stars||
Isn't everyone who has committed at least a 4*. I am a little worried we haven't begun to add some new names to the list, but Brian Cole, Malzone, Tyree, Grant Newsome and Runyon are all very legit, star caliber players
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Yup, Manning was hired||
Yup, Manning was hired right after Montgomery left for Oklahoma. At the time I believe Brian even called it the "Beyonce" role of the coaching staff as both were expected to be the young, energetic, relatable coach for recruiting.

Haha, Maybe the next Appreciation Thread spree, you'll get your very own!

Suit this man up for the basketball team. We know he has the skills to both start and finish the alley-oop.
