and bang it.
|4 days 4 hours ago||Thank you||
for reminding me this existed.
|1 week 1 day ago||Yup, understand||
Just implying to your point that even though he's 2016, he may reclassify and be 2017 (which would save a scholly for 2016-2017) or not see the floor until 2017 after redshirt.
|1 week 1 day ago||Something I did not realize||
is that he is only 16 right now. Being young for your class is indeed something Beilein has said he values, and may mean that he wanted to lock up a big for the 2017 class right now. Obviously that's coming at the cost of a scholarship spot, but I'm willing to wait untli next offseason before I pass judgment on taking this committment. Even if my reaction right now is that of a bit of surprise.
|1 week 1 day ago||Man||
I'm trying to listen, but it's so painful to hear the hate on USMNT.
|1 week 2 days ago||The music||
chills and goosebumps
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I'd take||
the white jacket and then tell the rest to get off my lawn.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I profusely apologize||
for trying to pass on information I think might be useful to the board without giving away details of paywalled info.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Names were hinted at||
I would just rather not say. I think you or other readers can make an educated guess based on the players being recruited for 2015 and how different players may have met or not met expectations this season.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||No names have been given to my knowledge||
I would just look at what types of players they are recruiting and compare that against player performance.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Heard scuttlebutt||
that there is a chance of some non-NBA and non-graduation attrition for the team this offseason.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Onwenu||
"Onwenu's been a consistent presence on campus of late to the extent that Michigan has passed Ohio State as the favorite on his Crystal Ball"
He types after he was the "go ahead pick" on the crystal ball to Michigan :)
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Yup||
No idea personally if Gentry had any clue about this beforehand or not, or even if this would have affected his decision one way or the other if it did. Just offering an opinion on an admittedly sore topic.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Not blind-sided at all||
But if the transfer was in the works already, I don't see why it couldn't have been announced on or before Signing Day instead of the day after. Maybe it wasn't in the works for a while, but that was what I had been reading/hearing.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Agree 100% two different situations.||
And I'd say this is more akin to the UCLA DC loss than Michigan, but I'm just trying to look at all these things under the relatively same filter. Not just a Michigan-fan perspective. I tend to agree with what Sam has said about Mikey at this point that he was looking for something to happen at Michigan or OSU to point to and give a reason for his choice. The scrutiny of a flip that late in the process would be pretty high.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||I view it as part of the game in recruiting.||
Similar to signing 2 QBs to a class on Signing day and then announcing a QB transfer the very next day. Obviously not apples to apples, but worth noting that things like that happen across the country, not just at schools we don't like.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||An excellent point||
So many people just say "6-4 PF!" and yes of course height is important for that position, but you can take advantage of mismatches on offense just like the other team can take advantage of mismatches against you. When you are offensively focused, it's a nice tool in your kit.
|13 weeks 19 hours ago||The full roster being available||
for the biggest home game of the season does not mean that the full roster (minus LeVert and Wilson) will be "healthy" for the game. Still, if we can get two halves out of Doyle, that would be a great improvement.
EDIT: Allow me to add that I'm still irrationally optimistic about tomorrow's game.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||This team feels more like a typical Beilein team||
And I say that from his time at WVU. His system was always built around seniors knowing the system better than their opponents could scout it and using it to their advantage. We lost that the last few years because we had such good talent (a preferable situation), but we have a lot to look forward to with this team. I say that both for development the rest of this season and looking ahead a few seasons.
I have to agree, the rutgers game was somehow enjoyable when you unburden expectaions from the equation.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Would imply to me that Manning||
Did not get the job. And Zordich is a second DB coach.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||True statement.||
Even if Caris Leaves, if Michigan somehow lands Brown, that would be an immediate replacement impact player that would still lead to us likely having a better season.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||2014 was the year||
one year ago.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Anything can happen||
in conference play.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||I agree||
pretty cool. And every time he puts his hand on his hat like that, I know he's shouting "RHINO!" at the top of his lungs.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||So....||
Hello: Ron Zook?
|15 weeks 5 days ago||I'm not looking||
|16 weeks 12 hours ago||Currently drinking some Rhino Chasers||
If you like Bulliet, you will probably like any rye whiskey. If you want something more bourbon, I like Maker's Mark (though that's rather well known). I like Famous Grouse for blended. I like my single malts like Talisker (Islay scotch, closer to 60-70 depending, but I include it for completeness).
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Do Believe||
This is verboten, even if it paints a pretty picture.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Nik's record||
was set in Practice. Practice.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Honestly||
I think VCU's "havoc" is more gimmicky than effective. Teams with good pressure defense with the athletes and length to back it up (see: Louisville) will cause anyone problems. Good defense is good defense. I just don't happen to think VCU qualifies in that regard.
All the same, our lack of turnovers should hopefully help against a bigger and more experienced Villanova team.
