|2 days 13 hours ago||Well, I believe the quote||
and I like it too. Beilein wants guys who want to be here and so do I. Once a guy chooses some other school, it is good luck, good bye and move on.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Rumeal Robinson always makes those 2 free throws.||
Sean Higgens always makes that put back. Zack Novack always screams in the huddle. Denard Roninson always fumbles that first snap and then picks it up and runs past everybody.

Remember when OPs didn't get side tracked and high jacked?

I'm sorry, what was the question?
|6 days 16 hours ago||Much like Seth,||
I found out about my father's death on the day he collapsed and died. My mother died 6 years later. She was in in the hospital surrounded by her children and grand children. It is the only time I have seen someone take their last breath. Maybe that is why her passing was even harder on me than my father's. In both cases, it is a deep sadness that gets better over time, but never fully goes away. Be thankful for all of the great memories.

Yea, another list.

to get ready for next week's tournament. Dinner and cards with friends on Saturday. Movie with the wife on Sunday. Lots of yard work.

ain't nobody happy.

but first must relieve stress.
|1 week 4 days ago||By the way,||
I believe Caris spells it wit an E not an A.
|1 week 4 days ago||Since you asked what I thought:||
I didn't care enough about it to bother watching it.

and you are talking about them on our board. It must be the off season.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Beilein is great at||
(1) spotting talent that isn't obvious to others and (2) finding players that haven't yet peaked. The second point is most critical, I believe, because Beilein knows he can coach them up and the player will surpass other higher ranked players. As the article pointed out, some younger players dominate because they are more physically developed at a younger age.
As others have noted, let's also give credit to the players for doing the work and having the desire to improve. Burke, Stauskas and LeVert are examples of gym rats who were determined to be the best they could be. There have been others who had (have) potential, but haven't yet reached it (perhaps because they didn't have the burning desire to push themselves).
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Agree, but||
I think he checked in at 6'9" (but, with a very long reach).
|2 weeks 4 days ago||My impression on the Stauskas hype is quite different.||
I thought that the reason Nik and his dad decided to do the videos was because Nik wasn't very well known and they were trying to get his name out there.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I will re-read the framed copy of||
the Declaration of Independence that is hanging in my home office (inherited from my parents) and reflect on it's meaning and significance. Take the dog to his vet appointment for chemo treatment. Maybe catch a movie.
I hope everyone has a happy and safe Fourth of July weekend.

|3 weeks 3 days ago||I suspect that Beilein was a bit blinded by||
Nik's suit causing him to lean in a little closer than he thought he actually was.
Congratulations to all of our guys, Coach Beilein and staff and the University of Michigan. The factory rolls on.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I would love to see JMo in a Piston's uniform.||
I usually wouldn't wish that on anyone, but since he is a local boy, it would be neat. And he would have a huge following.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||In AA last night for the Fred Eaglesmith concert||
then checked out the great draft results. Here's hoping that it leads to more great recruiting results.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Well, this was kind of a no brainer, so||
yeah, he should get it right.
Well deserved by the awsome coaching staff.

Now get out there and help your fellow team mates recruit more outstanding men like yourself. Go Blue.
