|3 days 3 hours ago||Hah||
I know it's been already there, but I guess with the 2016 recruiting business behind, this is the next "start" for me. No reason to not have expected it to continue, but I just kinda love it.
|3 days 3 hours ago||And so||
the 2016 Jim Harbaugh news cycle domination begins.
|3 days 3 hours ago||I guess I'm just a sucker||
for the good ol' dunce cap. I feel it's underused in this day and age.
|3 days 3 hours ago||I considered going that route for a bit,||
but didn't have a good idea of the perfect segue into it.
|3 days 3 hours ago||I find your proposed self-inflicted punishment||
for not detecting sarcasm a tad extreme.
|3 days 6 hours ago||Something something growing pains||
Something something experienced defense will pick it up quickly.
Something something kinks worked out by MSU game
Something something it's all good we got Rashan Gary
|4 days 5 hours ago||Everyone has their opinions.||
I personally can't justify calling for a coach to be fired for two bad seasons with significant injuries for extended durations to major players. That said, this team does need to change its mindset if they want to be competitors in the B1G this season and next.
|1 week 3 days ago||Congrats to Caris||
But I think from my perspective, Buddy Hield seems to be most deserving of the award this season so far.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||It works just so much better||
Than trying to say something substantive sometimes.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Solid Post||
|12 weeks 1 day ago||I'll take a point.||
|12 weeks 2 days ago||I'm generally of the same mindset as you,||
but I think Beilein has already gambled on Wagner's upside simply by burning his redshirt already. Best case scenario for him at this point is a contribution like Caris in his freshman year, which would be great to get off the bench in someone who can play the 5.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||So far||
I'd rank the teams as follows
1. Brian (Overall best backcourt, I think Williams will be good this year)
2. Ace (Good wings, but no centers yet)
3. Alex (seems to have best options for a diverse frontcourt)
4. Seth (best centers, but McIntosh over SoboCop??)
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Overall, great news!||
Really happy that we get to have Beilein around for a few more years, and very clearly this is his last stop.
One potential downside is that I'd say this puts a damper on a "coach in waiting" situation with Jordan or BA to immediately follow Beilein. But that may be for the best, we will have to see.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Oooooh||
This will be fun to revisit come March....
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Maybe didn't phrase properly||
I didn't see highlights including him dunking, and I wanted to pass that interpretation along to say that he's maybe not as athletic at this point as some other similarly sized prospects in the class. Not saying he can't dunk or that he will never dunk in his collegiate career, just saying it wasn't in the film I watched. And yeah, maybe he doesn't need/want to.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Seems consensus top 100||
Aside from Rivals which has him at 105. Can't find him on ESPN.
My uneducated take from two highlight reels is he is a shooter. Long range and mid-range. Can get close to the hoop, but doesn't seem to quite be able to dunk it. Also capable of distributing the ball. I'd say he fills sort of a MAAR role or Stu Douglass where you could slot him at the point in a pinch, but you'd rather he play the off-guard spot ideally.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||this will go well||
|19 weeks 4 days ago||One note||
Jordan Poole is from WI, not OH. Despite the fact that we have indeed gotten many recruits from there recently.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||Additionally||
Evan Flood, who made a post saying the latest intel had Simpson going to Wisconsin hours ago, made a crystal ball pick to Michigan just recently as well. I'd say we can maybe get a little optimistic here.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||2:30 pm|
|22 weeks 2 days ago||I 100% agree||
I actually like his game a lot. Certainly hope we can generate some positive buzz. I just didn't want people to think he was a 5 star by accident.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||There's a Scout article||
from Snow and Daniels saying Michigan may have made a late push.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||"Update on top 15 PG Xavier Simpson"||
To be fair, he is top 15 at his position, but he's not top 15 overall. May be an exciting day.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, this is one of the reasons||
why I'm not upset about the lack of media availability while the sub is "submerged." The main thing we might be getting more of is insider impressions of camp. But the media interviews are not going to be interesting information. At least not to me.
|26 weeks 11 min ago||If I may be so bold||
I don't think you necessarily help your case by giving one edit that's legit and one that's fake. For what it's worth, I hope there is some good news coming our way, but I won't be buckling quite yet.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Indeed.||
I believe it's possible for people to re-evaluate their stance after an event as likely frustrating as the Battle/Langford situation was.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Was an interesting tidbit indeed.||
Davis reclassifying only allows you to take your PG in 2016. Then I think you start looking at an expectation that someone is going pro after this season (likely Irvin). Going to be interesting beyond that.
That said, I'm all for taking another wing in 2016 if it means we can get Coffey or Bridges.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||I missed these.||
Glad they are back.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||I had forgotten||
How quickly I could scroll through and skim who picked whom.
