he didn't have to give them his phone. all they asked for was he hand over pertinent info meaning print out the emails or texts and hand them over.

Someone is not telling the truth about his academic affairs. I just don't believe a an athlete could have that many credits and none are toward a degree. But if he does, the academic support/counseling team really dropped the ball on this. It's their job to make sure students are progressing toward a degree

You might be right but look at GR3 and Irvin. Both guys in the 6'6 and 210-210 range. both played the "4". Also because Beilein rarely plays two legit bigs, it's inevitable that someone like him slides to the "4"

I doubt we get Bridges seeing as he said teams are saying he could be a 2/3. at 6'7 and 225 he will end up a stretch 4 at Michigan.
|3 weeks 5 hours ago||He agreed to a max deal with the Mavs we just got||
He agreed to a max deal with the Mavs we just got the actual numbers now. Add that Texas has no state tax, he didn't get more money in LA. if you think he didn't have the same opt out after year 3 clause with the Mavs deal that he's now getting from LA, you my friend are uninformed. Again the 4 yr 80 mil deal was an estimate because they didn't know the cap. Now they do.

well it seems your assertion, although it may be true doesn't mean anything because he only signing a 4 yr 88 mil deal to stay in LA.

then as a family, talk him out of committing until after he does his due diligence

wait you don't think non athletes are allowed to make up exams? I skipped a final in college and my professor allowed me to make it up

he can't say their names but this common practice for coaches to do this

he was probably referring to the transfer from Houston as well
|20 weeks 5 days ago||great info||
and not to take away from it but we are hesitant around here to ask why guys like Smot and the kid who transferwd to Bayor left the program. They were bigs who could shoot and the kid who went to Baylor was a good shot blocker. Also no one has asked what is making guys who seem not ready for the NBA leave UM instead on stay under Beilein when I don't think he had a multitude of guys leaving at West Virginia. Yes he is developing players but but guys who seem more ready at others programs stick around while it looks like here they look to bolt at first real chance.

isn't Hayes a graduate and I believe his letter is the same. Plus a few years ago Saint Joes in Philly blocked a grad transfer

This is PR. He has two former players on the roster at OSU so he gonna support the coach because of that no matter what. Also I'm sure he spoke with Weber as well and Weber is fine with situation now so they all are putting in behind them

Way to show resolve when OSU made a push. That's the make up of a winning team (although we are having a down year)

Let's be honest about this: What he did was egregious and what he said was stupid at best but we all know if the situation was reversed and he was the abused, WE still would be questioning his role in the ordeal. WE would be asking what did HE do for HER to act like that and rightly so.

I can see that as well but just because one kid was a non-qualifier doesn't mean you stop recruiting Euro's.

yea that's probably an issue

Beilein loves bigs who can shoot. I'm shocked he doesn't recruit Europe more. That's where he can find the players he covets at the 4 who are actually 6'8 or taller.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Beilein recruits his system and for that I can't||
Beilein recruits his system and for that I can't blame him because he's won games that way. But you have to wonder is top wing players with any size are starting to be scared off because of the possibility of playing the 4 position her at Michigan. Staukas/Caris and THJ were allowed to be guards on offense and defense. Rarely If ever did you see them ask to guard 4 position. Repeatedly we've seen Irvin this year and GR3 during his time asked to guard the 4 and they just didn't have the size (weight) to compete. Why would anyone who remotely favors those two in body size with NBA aspirations want to sign up with Michigan? Yes guys have gotten to the league but really only 2 of Beilens guys have had any success so far in Trey and THJ.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||well that's the problem Chatman is not a "4" in||
well that's the problem Chatman is not a "4" in this system. He's a slasher and has no business hanging out at the 3 pt line but that's where Belein plays him.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||there are guys out there that fit that profile but||
there are guys out there that fit that profile but those guys are one and done types and Beilein is not recruiting them or they are picking other schools that take advantage of their inside out game

no those dates are the late signing period for 2015 BB recruits. He won't be able to sign until November of this year as a 2016 prospect

that's the interesting part. I mean once in the league I could probably see it but not before the draft especially with Jameis working with Whitfield

well I hope for our sake he's not forced to play the "stretch" 4 role on our offense

this is not new in basketball. I used follow basketball ranking really close and even back when I was in high school (class of 2000) I would see rankings for 5th/ 6th graders in NY

So if the NCAA does this, the cream of the crop are not going to college. They will just go overseas for a year and then jump to the league. Guys who are one and done now barely go to school after the season is done. Why would a player who really doesnt want to be in school but is forced to go because of the NBA age restriction rule so sign up to say in school at 2 years?
|23 weeks 6 days ago||I honestly thought he would always go to UGA.||
I honestly thought he would always go to UGA. Interesting though that he said had Durkin stayed at UF he would have definitely went there and the LB coach for UCLA was his reason for choosing them initially. Let's just say weather had something to do with his decision initially since Durkin is at UM and relationship with position coach was seemed to be important to him (although caveat UGA is home)
|23 weeks 6 days ago||he needs to play more mid range and in. His game||
he needs to play more mid range and in. His game has not developed enough to drift to 3 pt range and expect him for that far out to make dribble drive to basket. I feel like we play every athletic player 6'6 or bigger on the wing instead of getting them into spots where they can use their athleticism. Cutting, free throw area, 1 or 2 dribbles and he's he's to the basket.

I wonder if the coach at Montana State will decline to take a transfers/grad transfer from a power 5 conference? I don't know how often a guy transfers up a level (FCS to FBS) but many transfer down with no complaints from FCS level schools.
