"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

|1 year 4 weeks ago||Selling the team||
From what I understand, he might not have a choice in selling his team. It is a Franchise, not his personal business, and the NBA retains the rights to that franchise and can revoke it. It seems certain that Silver has the votes he needs to simply revoke Sterling's stake in the Clippers. In that scenario, the NBA would handle the process of selling the team, Sterling would have no say in who buys it. Is it a slipperly slope? Possibly, but it is also a reminder that Owners are not exempt from punishment for tarnishing the image of the league.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||One and dones||
Lost in all this is the very real possibility that this is the last year for one and dones for a while. The new NBA commisioner has made it his top priority to raise the minimum age to 20. This will allow top players to go to the shcool they feel will develop them the best, not neccesarily where they will get immediate playing time. In that scenario, Michigan's recent success in developing players is a huge, huge factor.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Passing||
He has a few pretty sweet passes in and out of the post in that video. He truly seems to be a great fit for this team. If he can break down guys one on one, he can do a lot of things in this offense. He is going to be a match up nightmare on defense, especially if he is on the floor with say, Wilson or Donnal and another big man. He will be able to easily shoot over smaller guards, and big men will have to follow him out to the permimeter. The fun comes when the other team has to guard 2 or 3 guys who are all 6"8 and can shoot 3's. I dont know how you guard that with most college teams.

My avatar approves of this, good sir.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||The Draft||
The 3 guys who could potentially go 1,2,3 in the draft are not making it to the Sweet Sixteen. It is always interesting to see that in this age of the one and done, very little beats experience and good coaching.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Inflation Theory||
This essentially proves the inflation theory of the universe. Which states that the universe, at the big bang, expanded all at once at many time the speed of light. This is why the universe is uniform in terms of temperature and makeup. This lends creedance to the mutli-universe theory, because our universe had to have expanded in something, so it stands to reason that there are other universes also expanding in whatever this void is. So that is kind of a big deal.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||#1 seed||
i would rather have the number 1 seed, without a doubt. You get a much easier path and with Michigan in the east, they will have a huge alumni base to support them.

Foote thinks the University should lower their admission standards for football. that isnt going to happen.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||This kid||
This kis looks like a great fit for the system. Looks a lot like Stauskas, he just needs to keep developing. He even had a nice "game blouses" dunk in that video
|1 year 24 weeks ago||McDowell||
It seems like people are bracing themselves for the first with McDowell. In fact it seems like many people have already written it off, and that might be the case, I think however, that it is just as likely that this is just a kid who is set on following a more traditional timeline for his recruiting. He and his family are doing their due diligence and seeing every thing they can. The excelerated pace of recruiting under Hoke has spoiled us a bit and made us impatient as a fan base.

KLS is coming on hard for induction into the profile picture hall of fame.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Dillman||
I don't understand why a great number of people seem obsessed with Kevin Dillman and think its a travesty that Michigan hasnt offered him. The kid is very raw. It is just as likely that he will never develop into a solid QB as it is that he blows up. It is very ovious the staff wants guys who are more developed and better able to run the offense. Sills looks quite mobile and has great mechanics. You can't really ask for much more than that. If Dillman was a random 3 star who said he loved Michigan, no one would bat an eye. But because someone decided he is a 5 star, people assume he is OMG amazing and the best qb prospect ever.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||I''ll try||
Mcgary will play
Good things will happen tonight
GR alley oop
|1 year 29 weeks ago||It's ok||
Booker would have brought down the average height of our team next year anyway. We only recruit 6'6 and above combo guards now.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||I don't agree||
Kearns, if he is indeed the top option, looks pretty mobile on film. He's not Devin or Denard, but he looks like he can do enough with his legs to keep a defense honest. He looks absolutely nothing like, say John Navarre.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Development||
This basketball program has shown a wondrful ability to develop players. It goes up and down the line. A guy like Jordan Morgan can come in, completely reshape his body, and become a pretty damn good player. Stauskas is gonna be very good this year I think.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Dillman||
It certainly seems like his unabashed desire for a Michigan offer will help his case. The staff seems to want to offer qb's that they know will commit fairly quickly. If they think he can be a legit passer, Doesnt seem to be any reason why he won't get an offer.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||It has been repeated and repeated||
Basketball recruiting is very excellerated. The Final Four appearance happened after most of the elite guys had been recruited for years. And, you can still see the impact in guys like Blackmon taking visits seemingly out of nowhere. We will soon have a top 100 kid in the fold, with a few more coming. That is a damn good class. We are not going to get a McGary and Robinson every year. But remember, Grantham is in about the range Burke was whenre he came in.

Does Burrell's dad have any eligibility left? That is a big dude
|1 year 37 weeks ago||it'll come||
the first game was a blowout. and against notre dame the staff wisely trusted the seniors. chesson will get his chance soon. I suspect he will get some balls Saturday.

illinois is still terrible.

Even God hates the MSU offense. Had to pull out the lightning to ge them to stop
|1 year 40 weeks ago||Bryant||
I think Bryant at guard is honestly the best case scenario. We tend to forget because it was a few cycles ago but Chris Bryant was very highly regarded and was a big deal when he commited. You have to think he would have gotten a shot at playing last year if he had not gotten injured. Kalis and Bryant is a nasty guard combo. This was Braden is the first off the bench and he can play either guard or tackle, where as Bryant probably cant play tackle as well. i also like the idea of having two guards that will probably start more than one season. Next year you dont want to have to replace the tackles and one of the guards.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||Michigan||
It seems like other than Cole, There doesnt seem like a whole lot of players in the '15 class from Michigan that the staff like. Campbell probably wont get an offer, and it seems like Alabi isnt really a priority. As others have said, Cole seems like the big prize, and I feel pretty confident that if our staff wants him, they can probably get him. It's honestly hard to get worked up about this because, you know, campbell and harris
|1 year 42 weeks ago||Hurst||
Maurice Hurst down to 270, I gotta figure thats a good thing. He was probably carrying bad weight at 300. Also, Butt and Funchess are basically the same size now
|1 year 43 weeks ago||Talent||
One of the most memorable moments for me from The Michigan-Alabama game is when Krik Herstreit commented that the talent disparity between the two teams was so vast. I don't think that is going to be the case anymore. Michigan is going to have the horses to run with anyone.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||This is great||
This kid has seemed like a Duke leader ever since he has been on Michigan's radar. the staff really seems to have made up a ton of ground with him. They have a great chance to impress him on a visit and take the lead.
If things go according to plan, Michigan will very likely have 4 first round draftl picks in 2 years. That is a big deal and kids have already started to take notice. Getting kids like Booker, Looney and Zimmerman are going to keep Michigan at an elite level for a while if we can close on a few of them. I mean, who wouldn't want to play for Beilein? His style of offense seems like every players dream.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Superman||
Superman is one of the hardest comic book characters to portray. You have to make a man who in invulnerable vulnerable. He is not relatable in the way someone like Batman is. They chose to focus on his worry in how the world would react to him. It was a different take, and I admire them doing it.
That being said, Zach Snyder knows nothing of subtlety. It is a profoundly humourless movie that takes itself incredibly serious. Also, I think it's amusing that people always complain about believability in a Superman movie. Suspension of disbelief is kind of par for the course when you are talking about an immortal alien who thinks glasses are a disguise.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Third||
Alabam is still third behind Tech and Michigan. It's not like they are suddenly in the lead. People are reading way to into this. But 24/7 got their page clicks.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Recruiting||
The topic of the Big Ten's subpar recruiting has been a particular point of interest on this blog lately, and here is a coach, under the strictest sanctions any one has had in a long time, out recruiting everyone not name Hoke or Meyer. I don't know if it says more about Bill O'Brien as a recruiter, or more about the rest of the big ten.
