|1 week 8 hours ago||Fairly sure||
That Caris comment just means he is the number one pick to go from Michigan to the NBA next draft.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I will||
Take a point.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I'd say zero chance of pursuing him right now||
Because Michigan already has a 6-11 2016 center in Teske.
|3 weeks 3 hours ago||Would have liked him too||
Sadly it was not to be. Or should I say, sadly it was not to bee.
|3 weeks 3 hours ago||No small thing||
That Beilein got his Plan A big man for 2016. That's a great start.
|3 weeks 3 hours ago||The amount of use||
this gif has gotten recently on here, is beautiful.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||someone||
screen cap it.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||He's a lower-touted commit||
But an 11W article says he was 6-11 without shoes. A legit 7 footer who's current best attribute is "game changer on defense" is a nice addition as far as I'm concerned. Also one less scholarship to scramble to fill with a Plan B or C prospect down the line. Michigan staff got their plan A big man in 2016 with this commit.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||7 foot shot blocker?||
Yes please! Welcome Jon!
|3 weeks 3 days ago||sigh||
|4 weeks 1 day ago||So||
Are you calling us that?
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I would agree that you don't need to re-read the first 3||
right now. I found my most interesting personal revelations about things I missed/didn't notice came after I had finished all of the books. For example, I found details about the Others that I didn't notice in the prologue of AGOT until a re-read.
I think perhaps the more interesting question for you to ask right now is do you want to read books 4 and 5 as they are written, or do you want to read them chronologically since the two books focus on two different sets of POV characters. If you search for "A Feast For Dragons" in google, you will likely come up with a chapter order guide that tells you which chapters follow which chronologically. However, I believe you may get more out of reading the books as intended if you are going to do a detailed read of both books 4 and 5. Those two, especially in relation to book 3, are a lot more intricate.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Definitely agree he can pick and pop||
which Morgan couldn't. It will depend on how effective the people that are running the screen action with him are.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I read the article earlier||
and was struck by him completely ignoring the impact of D-Mo to J-Mo. J-Mo had great production as a redshirt freshman because Darius was 6-4 and would hit him on the PnR all the time. Derrick Walton, though still very efficient on the PnR, does not have the height of Darius, so I wouldn't expect the same production from Mark Donnal his freshman year if only because of that. I still have high hopes for him as a player overall though.
|6 weeks 6 hours ago||Weights/Heights added also||
Kam and D.J. both 210. 6-7 and 6-9 respectively, as expected
MAAR is 10 pounds heavier than Dawkins though 2 inches shorter
Doyle is listed at 6-10(!) 250.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||LeVert was the||
shiftiest/craftiest player on the team. Creates well, but definitely made some questionable decisions in clutch situations. He definitely can have a star role on this team and be taken in the first round.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I have made an effort||
to not remember much of last football season. I do think part of the reduction in INTs was Gardner post MSU going "Oh my god, body hurts so much, why even ball throw? Just sleep."
|8 weeks 6 days ago||It's funny to think||
All the stuff we've seen and followed so closely over the last 5 years, JMo has seen first hand.
|9 weeks 3 hours ago||Woot!||
2 lottery picks in 2 years! Lets make it three next year with Caris!
|9 weeks 3 days ago||You just posted||
3 of the 4 additional scouting reports I read on the site (other one was Gary Harris).
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I agree||
It's hard to encompass all win/loss scenarios and goal differential cases in one short post. I was just pointing out that for the US to lose, they would need to lose by at least one, and then Portugal would have to win by 4, which would (likely) give them the Goal advantage to push us out. A better way to say it may be, we need to lose and portugal needs to win by a total goal differential of at least 5.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Goal Differential||
Portugal is -4 in GD, USA is +1. Portugal would need to win by at least 4 for them to potentially knock us out. Ghana beating portugal is a lot scarier, as their GD is only -1.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||I realize sarcasm||
But as I recall, Dakich will be #11 and Wilson will be #5.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Brooks||
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Also a possibility||
I guess I just think we have seen scenes with the dragons that long before. Coordinating an action sequence with completely CGI enemies is not something that most shows have the budget for.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||We have been in book 4 already||
with some specific characters. Books 4 and 5 are concurrent timeline-wise, but focus on different characters. You should be seeing events from both books next season, unless they entirely cut out characters from the show temporarily.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||For 6||
They did say that some scene in season 4 was the highest cost per second of any scene thus far. I'm guessing it's the skeletons.
As for politics, I wouldn't be too worried, there are always people looking to rise to power in King's Landing.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Reports coming in||
That top 50 PG prospect Quentin Goodin has also been offered. 3 PG offers in one day is a clear message (to me) they are A) not expecting Jalen Brunson to commit and B) they want an early PG commit to build the 2016 class around.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||No worries Chippewa||
I definitely recognize the issue with blind faith in this case. Brundidge was a miss, and I definitely have some issue with John Beilein's plans at end of half and end of game situations (no fouling @ Wisconsin 2013 with fouls to give rings a bell). I actually was not expecting Teske to get an offer, but his was the name that most pops up for big men in 2016 that Michigan has shown interest in. I think they definitely could have waited on the offer, but I'm certainly intrigued by the possibility of him committing and its implications.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||They may have higher ceilings||
I have gotten the impression with this coaching staff that their message of players who are "Breaking down the doors to play at Michigan" is more truth than coachspeak. They may really feel that Teske is a much more likely commit than Swanigan and Spellman. Therefore, if he commits, it gives them more time in the 2016 class to work on their other prospects. Not saying that I agree with that process on every level, but just indicating what I believe to be the possible reasoning.
