|9 weeks 4 days ago||Welcome Darrin!||
I like this kid. Sounds like the type of person you want at Michigan!
|11 weeks 3 days ago||We don't know if it matters||
We don't know if it matters yet. Depends on who we get to commit.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||LSUFreek is usually really||
LSUFreek is usually really funny, but this one is just lame.
As for which QB is better, most NFL GMs prefer Brady over Manning.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Young and dumb. They go for||
Young and dumb. They go for the fancy recruiting pitches and buy into all the BS some coaches lay out. Beilein won't win those types of battles. Like MAAR's dad said, JB was very direct and honest. If a kid can't see how his staff develops players, then too bad for them.
|12 weeks 9 hours ago||Derryck Thornton Jr.||
Wow, that kid can play. It would be really fun to watch him play in a Beilein offense. Great quickness, great handle and he appears to have some range.
|13 weeks 9 hours ago||I agree. I should have put||
I agree. I should have put Beilein and staff. I hope Jordan is the next head coach.
|13 weeks 9 hours ago||This got me thinking about||
This got me thinking about the value to the program of certain recruits. I believe GR3 and Mitch were the highest rated recruits two years ago. Caris was not even close to any Top 100 list. Yet if he does stay all four years and keeps progressing, his impact will be much bigger than either Mitch or Glenn, if Mitch also leaves for the NBA this week
Add in Trey being the best player in decades and being only a 3*, and I'm starting to care less and less about basketball player rankings. As long as we land a solid mix of kids like this year (two top 100, two solid role players), we'll be fine. ...as long as Beilein is on the bench.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Completely agree. GRob had||
Completely agree. GRob had ample opportunity to shoot the ball and drive to the basket. Most of the time he was even matched up against a slower player since he was covering a 4.
His game is still developing, but with his name and athleticism, people (including himself) expected more than he produced. Complaining about not getting to play the 3 is just a weak excuse.
I hope he has a good NBA career, but I'm very suspect. If you have only limited success at the college level, the NBA probably won't be any easier. It's not like he played in a rigid offense at Michigan.
|14 weeks 11 hours ago||Thanks. I'll find some time||
Just curious, have you watched already and have an assessment?
|14 weeks 11 hours ago||Thanks. I'll find some time||
Thanks. I'll find some time this weekend. Much appreciated.
|14 weeks 11 hours ago||I don't think that will||
I don't think that will convert many haters....
|14 weeks 11 hours ago||Too much editing||
I can't stand it when they change speeds and clip the action too tight. I have no idea how quick Dawkins is from either video. I also have no idea on his handle.
As with almost all highlight videos, how accurately he shoots from outside is unknown. He could range from a sharp shooter to those were the only shots he hit all year.
He has a great name, but hard to get excited without seeing more.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||The NBA cares about defense,||
The NBA cares about defense, but staying another year won't help Nik that much. He'll never be a good defender against players with quickness. Heck, Hardaway is having issues and he was much better defensively at UM than Nik.

Won't Spike be a senior that season?
Levert might still be on the team also.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||I believe he moved up to a 4*||
I believe he moved up to a 4* after committing to Michigan on a couple sites. ESPN had not even rated him yet and eventually gave him 3 stars.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||I recall a bunch of people||
I recall a bunch of people wondering why we wasted a spot on a lower rated receiver when there were higher rated guys still in play.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Hopefully Yogi goes pro. He||
Hopefully Yogi goes pro. He has the body for the NBA right now.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||In 1997 it sucked. This||
In 1997 it sucked. This time, I like it. Both coaches deserved it. Both are good guys.
|20 weeks 10 hours ago||Dakich!||
I never realized at the time just how important the commitment of Dakich was. He's going to make UM basketball even more enjoyable over the next few years. Can't even imagine how entertaining it will be if he makes the rotation as an upperclassmen.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Those uniforms looked bad.||
Those uniforms looked bad. The players probably looked in a mirror and lost confidence...or maybe it was Izzo screaming at them.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Even with D-Wade, they got||
Even with D-Wade, they got absolutely blown out in the semi-finals.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||My sympathies are only with||
My sympathies are only with the victim. Problem is that I don't know if the victim was the girl or a falsely accused guy.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||That's your poblem, you're||
That's your poblem, you're reading an NBA message board. There's probably even a few guys that think Dumars is doing a great job.
Durant will usually get a little nicer treatment in the press because he's a really nice guy and more humble than LeBron. He's never had an ESPN special where he takes his talent to South Beach.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||Cochran was really a Royal||
Cochran was really a Royal Oak Dondero guy, who just transferred to Rice his senior year. The rationale was to get more recruiting exposure, but when you're first team All-State as a junior, I'm pretty sure he was already on the radar screen of most schools.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Beyond lame. There must be a||
Beyond lame. There must be a bunch of absolutely stupid ballots filled out.

Sounds like a great baseball name...
|26 weeks 1 day ago||I'm still surprised Walton||
I'm still surprised Walton can shoot 36% from behind the arc jumping forward on his shot. I just expect the ball to draw heavy rim. With Stauskas, any miss for him is like watching another player miss a lay-up. You just expect it to go in with his great form.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed. It's not like he did||
Agreed. It's not like he did anything excessive anyway. He wasn't moon walking in the end zone or doing the Carlton.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||Great point. I really hope||
Great point. I really hope Mattison gets more aggressive next year. I hate the term "bend but don't break"....especially since we did both in 2013.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||True, but at this point in||
True, but at this point in time, I'd be excited just to be pleased.
