Mcgary will play
Good things will happen tonight
GR alley oop
|4 weeks 6 days 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.
|5 weeks 2 days 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.
|6 weeks 6 hours 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.
|8 weeks 4 days 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.
|10 weeks 7 hours 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
|12 weeks 2 days 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
|15 weeks 4 days 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.
|17 weeks 1 day 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
|17 weeks 2 days 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
|18 weeks 3 days 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.
|19 weeks 4 days 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.
|24 weeks 3 days 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.
|25 weeks 1 day 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.
|25 weeks 4 days 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.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||McDowell||
I'm pretty sure McDowell is closer to 300. He was probably the biggest guy at that event. There is no way a human that big should be able to move like that. Normally you see 6"6 300 you're thinking OT, not a DE. And as the OP noted, it doesn't look like bad weight at all. If he can learn to stay low consistently, my god.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||UFR||
To put it in the context of this site, I think Poggi is the kind of player the UFR is going to love. He maybe wont be the flashiest player on the line, but at the end of the day he is going to do all the right things to make plays. In that regard, the RVB comparison makes perfect sense.

Are amazing. If you hate these uniforms you hate America. And wookies.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||Stauskas||
I'm surprised how many people seem to be writing off Stauskas as losing his spot and losing minutes. He played like a talented freshman last year. There is no reason he can't improve over the summer and come back better. With Hardaway and Burke gone Stauskas is the only guy on the roster who has proven he can get his own shot. Maybe Walton and Irvin, but they aren't on the team yet. Defense was definetly his biggest weakness last year, but that is something he can improve. He will be the starter at the 2 next year.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||good news||
This also helps our back court depth. With GRIII playing the 3 that most like lt means stauskas/levert/Irvin at the 2 with Irvin also backing up at the 3. Morgan/Horford at the 5 is pretty good, plus Bielfeldt and Donnal in there.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||Banking||
There is absolutely no reason to bank scholarships in basketball. If you have a guy who you think can contribute, you bring him in. The kid looks like he could easily get minutes on this team backing up the 4 or 5. Banking a scholarship is wasting minutes. It's not like in football where you go 3-4 deep at every position. Bring this kid in, let him back up for a year, then next (assuming Mcgary and Robinson leave after next year) he can probably get major minutes if he's developed.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||Chatham||
I am from Springfield, which is 10 minutes from Chatham. It would be incredible to have a guy from essentially my home town on the team. If he commits, I might have to go do a scouting report when I visit my parents next. Chatham Glenwood is somewhat of a local powerhouse. I can't speak much to the competition level, but they are a great program.
|34 weeks 3 days ago||You have enough points||
You can go ahead and make one. I am just reporting what Jalen Rose said. Also, while we love that all those guys will be there, none of them is as polarizing figure as Chris Webber. His possible attendance is a hugely significant event that will have huge reactions on all sides if it happens.
|35 weeks 1 day ago||Irvin||
I feel like he might have the highest ceiling of any recruit Beilein has brought in so far. He has the athleticism of GRIII but seems to have a better offensive game. He has the body that the NBA loves with that length of his. This kid is going to be special.
