"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

I am up for some golf next weekend as well if you need more.

|9 weeks 2 days ago||I wear my 1%||
I wear my 1% shirt regularly and get questioned about it. There is no place I would rather call my alma mater.
This truly is "The Michigan Difference" that is always talked about.
The one thing that always got me was how people would try to tear apart Rich Rod on his character. If anything that Michigan did right by hiring him it was getting a quirky stand-up GREAT character guy that poured everything he had into the program, for whatever reasons there was didn't pan out on the football field, but he has left his mark on the univeristy, the football team, and the community. For that, I applaued him and wish him the best in Arizona.
It is great to see Brock sill pushing through and it gave me butterfiled to read that him and his wife were able to walk and hold hands.
Wherever You Go, Go Blue!

KU actually DOES have "bag men"
|12 weeks 23 hours ago||turn down?||
Turn down for what?
|13 weeks 4 days ago||did you read...||
did you read any of the reports last year?
did you see him around campus?
everything has indicated that the once-cocky, smag blasted, kid who was going to be the future of QB at UofM, looks shell shocked and beaten down to the quiet kid who keeps to himself.
Devin took a beating last year and his confidence was part of that.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||willing to bet?||
I usually dont bet on amature athletes, but in this case I will. You name the price...
I bet he starts at least 1 game during his time at Michigan.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||A good question for Brandon||
Perhaps Brandon can sneak in a question to some recruits about how the atmosphere in off-season activites impacts their decision, if it does at all.
Basketball games on recruiting trips, spring games, BBQ.Stuff like that.
I personally think the atmosphere would play a decent role, especially on the kids that only able to make 1 or 2 visits, and this being their first one.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||I did||
my first ever 5k and I didnt exactly train for it so I will take my 31:19 and go to the hot tub with it haha.
It was a lot of fun and I will certainly be doing it again next year, as well as a few others between now and then.
I plan on running at the Cherry Festival in Traverse City in July.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Yes and No||
The idea that Glenn anD Mitch improve enough is a valid one...
Nik is a solid 1st rounder, the other 2, not so much.
Trey, wasnt a SOLID LOCK 1st rounder.
Him staying vaulted him from tweener to solid lock top 10
The difference between a late first round pick and 2nd round pick is teams cut or d-league 2nd round picks or sometimes they slip and dont get drafted.
If you are a solid first round pick you dont get the d-league treatment, you dont get the end of the bench and earn your time treatment - it is your job to lose from day 1.
Sure, the working your way up works for some people but almost everybody on an NBA roster could be serviceable. Look at Jeremy Lin for example, dominated D-league and played 10 day contract after 10 day contract and if Baron Davis doesnt get hurt, he is still doing that.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Adreian Payne...||
Adreian Payne gets no props from me for anything.
He is a pathetic man that should be doing some hard time right now for disgusting things he did to a woman.
Fuck Adreian Payne.. he is pathetic
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Your parents...||
Your parents never told you no and meant it?
What I see here is his mother is doing everything she can to prevent him from putting himself in, what she has deemed, a bad place. She has decided that the situation he will be surrounded by, and the people he will be hanging out with, at MSU, and well, even slightly less at Michigan, would be bad for his growth as a person, and an upstanding citizen. As such, she has taken her stand to get him to go somewhere that he will not be distracted by those people. I fail to see the bad parenting in that. Sure, she could have handled the media differently, but all parties involved could have.
Family is very important in these years of life and if him going against his parents judgement breaks that family bond, as a coach, I wouldn't want him to come.

I cannot comment on this as I dont recall seeing it.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Was he successful?||
by Dale Wimbrow, (c) 1934
When you get what you want in your struggle for self,
And the world makes you King for a day,
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that guy has to say.
For it isn't your Father, or Mother, or Wife,
Who judgement upon you must pass.
The feller whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the guy staring back from the glass.
He's the feller to please, never mind all the rest,
For he's with you clear up to the end,
And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test
If the guy in the glass is your friend.
You may be like Jack Horner and "chisel" a plum,
And think you're a wonderful guy,
But the man in the glass says you're only a bum
If you can't look him straight in the eye.
You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,
And get pats on the back as you pass,
But your final reward will be heartaches and tears
If you've cheated the guy in the glass.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||This girl can.....||
Fuck Adreian Payne. Appling too, neither of them should have played 1 min in a Spartan uniform.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||Oops||
You mean NorCal.
SF/Palo Alto is Northern Cali.
San Diego / LA / Anaheim are SoCal
|21 weeks 1 day ago||I got electronic clocked||
at 4.87 out of high school.
that was 10 years ago, and I am not too bad out of shape. With training I could do it.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Just POSBANGS!!!!||
|22 weeks 5 days ago||hmmm||
he didnt toss up a hail mary?
|23 weeks 12 hours ago||I posted in the other thread||
but this one seems to be getting more love so I will show it here too...
Ohio State trolling fail
This is almost as good as STAEE
|23 weeks 13 hours ago||Surprised this wasnt||
Surprised this wasnt already posted.
Horrible troll fail on the level of STAEE.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Fuck Ohio!||
|23 weeks 4 days ago||I didn't catch||
I missed him on the show, does anybody know of a way to find to audio.
That article seems to bounce a little bit and doesnt flow right for a normal conversation.
I am just curious to see if he was taken out of context or if that is all legit.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||Fuck||
|26 weeks 6 days ago||That is why we are snarky||
because we HAVE Megaron and Bush running free in a wide open offense and we continually shoot ourselves in the foot and make it worth nothing more than the same old lie-downs.
|27 weeks 11 hours ago||poop...||
poop filled coolers...
|27 weeks 1 day ago||I did give him...||
I did give him a second chance.
He blew it.
If you didnt know already, he did the exact same stuff at Youngstown State and was about to get caught until he jumped ship to Ohio State and left Youngstown in shambles fighting off the NCAA.
The guy is scum.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Well, in fariness...||
Adidas did see this coming when they signed the contract.
Hell, the night game jerseys were even selling like hotcakes in Ohio. I'd say that was a good start.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||this||
the lack of solid safeties, combined with little pressure on the QB means pressing with CB's is suicide, if they get beat you dont have safety help or pressure on the QB. Even the worst QB's in the B1G would eat that up.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||so...||
admittedly, i didnt watch most of the game last night but in this highlight video it looks like he goes down by a lot of arm tackles. I think i saw maybe 5 legitimate tackles broken, everything else he fell down or slowed down enough people caught him.
I don't like that. Was he breaking tackles and running through arm tackles in the UA game?
I have learned over the years that kids that are shifty in high school do not pan out too well in college where everybody is bigger and faster and stronger. (see: Sam McGuffie)
