All this seems reasonable, but you're forgetting about Hurst. He's definitely going to be ahead of Mone and judging from hype I've heard, might be even with Wormley. Probably depends on the spot. He's better in a nose role than Wormley I would think. I just hope Mone redshirts actually. I don't think he'll be more effective than Hurst and I want to lose a year of Mone if we don't have to.

Looks like there are a few 5th graders on the board tonight.

Based on what I've heard/read (pretty shabby measuring stick if we're honest with ourselves) I'm not super enthused about the prospect of getting Sills vs some of the other guys we're in on, but unfortunately turning him away at this point might not be great for our relationship with the football factory that his father created...
|7 hours 32 min ago||Nevermind. Just finished||
Nevermind. Just finished reading and there was just no credibility to be lost. This honestly seems like it was written by a 5th grader. And not a 5th grader with good grades either.
|7 hours 40 min ago||Lost all credibility when||
Lost all credibility when referenced Gardner's "nonchalant" attitude in practice last season. There's just no evidence of that whatsoever.

These are horrendous. The best thing about them is the short shorts, because it means there's less of them to look at.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Good thing I didn't||
Good thing I didn't prematurely post a demand for a Dakich highlight reel. I was planning one after the first couple few gifs.
|1 day 13 hours ago||I don't really have a problem||
I don't really have a problem with changing the bball uniforms. Football yes, but basketball doesn't really have an iconic look. Small changes to the basic concept like the perforated design don't really bother me and I actually like these. My only problem is with the yellow color. Bring back our colors!

If we can easily stop a MLB blitz we will have a much better chance against Sparty.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Every college player's dream||
Every college player's dream is to play in the NBA. But if a guy was going to pull a Lewan, I think it might just be Stauskas. This team is very tight and the core is all Stauskas's recruiting class. He just seems to love playing with them and really wants to win a championship to avenge last year's loss (see post championship game interview). I think it will depend on how this season ends and what kind of taste is left in his mouth honestly.
|2 days 2 hours ago||If all we lose is Stauskas||
If all we lose is Stauskas after this season, we're in the black. Trade Morgan for McGary, trade freshman Walton for sophomore Walton, trade skinny Levert for slightly less skinny Levert, and trade just a shooter Irvin for not just a shooter Irvin hopefully, maybe get a few more active possessions out of GR3 per game, and we are a top 5 team easily. All we'd have to do is avoid getting hit by whatever nuclear missile so mangled the Spartans this year and we're golden.
|2 days 8 hours ago||That might be true but I||
That might be true but I don't know why he would disrespect Fish like that. They could have won a championship under him as well if one play had gone a different way. Additionally, I don't know that the Fab Five guys would've bought into Beilein's system. In fact, I really doubt they would have.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Agree to disagree, but I||
Agree to disagree, but I think the players would be a little more excited to learn their new system and be back on the field than they would be to learn two days worth of calculus. I just don't think they'll have to reteach that much. Review, yes. But they would do that anyway. It's only a week after all. I'm sure the coaches also factored in what kind of players they have and whether they'd be studying up over the break or just getting fat and forgetting everything.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Seems like Holland's making||
Seems like Holland's making moves just to keep the playoff streak alive, which is fine with me. This team is not winning a cup with all these injuries, but without doing something they probably weren't headed for the playoffs this year. We'll see if Legwand can affect that at all. I lean towards no unfortunately.
|2 days 11 hours ago||I'd say the exact opposite||
I'd say the exact opposite actually. I think it makes those two practices more useful, because the coaches can give a blitz introduction of the play book since we're switching schemes on both sides of the ball, then the players can study over the break with some good practical experience to reference as they're reading the play book. Plus the coaches can give them specific technique things to work on after not seeing them play for a couple months and can then start much further along when the 3rd practice rolls around. I like it.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Well the only guys who have||
Well the only guys who have been playing for the last ten years are Craft and Morgan. Craft probably takes it in that race.
|3 days 12 hours ago||I like to avoid grammar||
I like to avoid grammar naziing these days given the frequency with which my iPhone ruins my posts, but I've noticed a weirdly noticeable amount of misused variants of alumni recently. Alumni- plural. Alum or alumnus or alumna- singular. Neg away.
|4 days 4 hours ago||Didn't watch the game but THJ||
Didn't watch the game but THJ has a horrible stat line for playing 22 mins. 0 points on 9 shots, 1 assist, 2 TOs, 4 fouls... yikes.
|4 days 4 hours ago||I'd rather they lost. They||
I'd rather they lost. They need a lottery pick. There are some big time players coming out this year in the draft.

Barnes-Arico pullin a Calipari and coaching the u-18 nationals. That can't hurt recruiting.
|6 days 9 hours ago||That's pretty sweet. Would||
That's pretty sweet. Would you be allowed to fly that around the stadium on a game day? Unfortunately I feel like they might shut you down.
|1 week 15 hours ago||Your timeline puts him on the||
Your timeline puts him on the field in September... That's exactly what people's best case expectations are. Even assuming he takes 7 months, that gets him in on October 1st and he only missed what, 4 games? Ill take that. He also has similar athletic requirements to Jake Ryan in terms of cutting and hitting (less often but similar impact). Doesn't have to cut like Countess or have the weight of a Pipkins. Sets up for a speedy recovery I think.

He looks pretty crazy huge big by the eye test.

What the heck have you been doing to miss 75% of the season??

I was sure that layup was gonna roll off after Stauskas missed all those layups. It didn't!! WOOOOOOOOO!!!
|1 week 3 days ago||It's not like they're putting||
It's not like they're putting players they didn't recruit into new roles. If the players didn't fit the new roles, do you think they'd be doing this? They were recruited by this staff so the staff obviously knows what they're capable of. Additionally, Hoke and Mattison said all last year that the LBs practiced every LB position in case they needed to fill in somewhere else to do limited depth, so they all should know what they're doing somewhat in the new spots. And what is so different anyway? As others have said, I'd like to see a post detailing exactly what each role is in the old vs the new scheme. In my mind, the basic roles are the same: read your keys, fill the gaps and find the runner on a run play, find your WR or find the QB on a pass play. These are all very experienced and very good players. I'm not at all worried, especially not about Ryan. I don't really get Brian's apparent concern about Ryan's ability to play SAM. He's been our best player on defense for two years when healthy and while we haven't seen him play the middle, we haven't seen anything to suggest he can't. I tend to give our best player the benefit of the doubt.

Hoke said LTT was having hand surgery around signing day I believe.
|1 week 3 days ago||Damn. That's a young line.||
Damn. That's a young line. We all knew it would be obviously but it doesn't really hit you til the coaches say it directly. A lot of experience on the interior though.
|1 week 3 days ago||I stand corrected, but I||
I stand corrected, but I maintain my disdain for the modern rules. I want to see huge ass men playing sports like huge ass men who can handle having someone bump them a little bit without complaining to the refs every time.
