It might be cool if skiing and snowboarding were a thing, like the superpipe stuff in the Winter Olympics/X-Games. Probably not something that everybody would be gung-ho about, but it's usually exciting to watch and I'd bet for some people it'd grow on them.

If only these UF students could all be injected with a hefty dose of PTSD that has about a 10 year half-life. Maybe then they'd realize how truly deplorable their actions were.

To "insure" a spot? Yikes.
|2 days 14 hours ago||No kidding. Especially since||
No kidding. Especially since it's in the same damn place as what will have been the previous neutral site game. At least choose a new, more appealing location to help justify dropping $1,000 for the weekend trip.

I feel like that epic display by THJ during the NBA Rising Stars Challenge from last year provides a pretty decent visual reaffirmation of just how damn good Beilein & Co. are at refining players' outside shots, which apparently is what Brown needs the most work on.

Hopefully the fact that he's got relatives in Michigan ends up holding some weight. Plus his family in Georgia would have a way easier time getting to AA for games. Easy 90ish min flight from ATL, whereas traveling to Berkeley would be a long ass ordeal and expensive.

With the skillset MAAR has, I don't think you can keep him on the bench too much.
|1 week 2 days ago||Except Trey was by no means a||
Except Trey was by no means a consensus top 100 recruit. Same goes for THJ. Most recruiting services had them as three star/unranked players, aside from ESPN which placed both in the 80-100 range.
|1 week 6 days ago||For as annoying as Lou Holtz||
For as annoying as Lou Holtz could often be, at least it was easy to get a good chuckle from how much of a goof he came across as.
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||One thing that could be||
One thing that could be interesting to see is career longevity for players who opted to declare early for the NBA, yet spent multiple years in the D-League vs guys that used all of their college eligibility before turning pro.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Except you have to figure||
Except you have to figure with Kentucky, Kansas, etc. having their usual slew of stud recruits, most are probably gonna be guys with talent at least comparable to LeVert, Walton and Irvin. So it doesn't seem like Jaylen Brown would necessarily get to be a head-and-shoulders alpha dog that runs the show at the other schools he's considering, given they'll have plenty of other talented kids to make use of.

In regards to Hatch being given a medical scholarship and making room for Jaylen Brown, wouldn't that only be a short term issue anyway?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Speaking of dying breeds, I||
Speaking of dying breeds, I drove by a Family Video store and saw it was actually still in business. That had me absolutely flabbergasted.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||The shot clock violation was||
The shot clock violation was for sure a blown call, but Kentucky also got away without what undoubtedly should have been a flagrant foul against them. Between the two free throws and Wisconsin also getting the ball back, UK might have even benefited more than Wisco did from the 2 freebie points they got.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I hope/think MAAR gets a lot||
I hope/think MAAR gets a lot more than 5 minutes/game. He's going to be a great defender which can be a frequent difference maker against teams with strong backcourts.

Personally, I'd take a MBB championship since I haven't been alive long enough to have seen it happen. Plus it's just so damn hard to win a 68 team tournament.

Terrible. Fucking terrible.

Calipari had a lot of big time recruits at Memphis, although it wasn't until the later half of his tenure there when he really started luring them in.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||Being on the team and||
Being on the team and participating in all the practices, workouts, meetings, etc. I would think is pretty significant for Hatch. It gives him some added structure in his life and likely provides a good outlet for keeping his mind off all the unfortunate circumstances he's faced.

Agree with you here.

Because Kentucky's program is built upon using what are likely ethically questionable tactics to pull in the best recruits every year. Most of them already are projected 1st round draft choices, if not lottery picks.

Man, I am SO DAMN GLAD the sketch ball that is Calipari got beat.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||On a big stage like this,||
On a big stage like this, should be interesting to see how Kentucky with their youngins respond to playing from behind.

Most people probably just figure they'll "root" for whichever coach it is that they loathe a tad bit less.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||What some people may not be||
What some people may not be aware of is that marijuana (specifically the THC) legitimately has potential for huge, huge medical benefits. It's thought to protect against neuronal damage/dysfunction, meaning it could be an effective treatment for slowing, or even preventing the progression of degenerative brain diseases like Alzheimer's and even CTE

If US News and World Reports came across this, it'd be understandable if they felt compelled to edit their ranking of MSU accordingly (i.e. 5 or 10 or 50 spots lower).
