...next year, at least to some extent. But they may be able to do that. X, Matthews, and Wilson should provide a good nucleus for a defense. Teske should be able to come in a block some shots. And they won't be learning Donlon's defense anymore.
|20 hours 48 min ago||I can imagine him having a good year at a mid-major||
He has a nice shot, as Dan Dakich likes to point out. He had some nice games at Michigan. My impression was that he struggled with his confidence. I think he'd have a lot more success against the slightly shorter, less burly players of the kind he'd see in a smaller conference. I wish my fellow Ohioan the best.

...that he picks Michigan.
|1 day 6 hours ago||He's the 25th ranked player in his class per 247|
|1 day 18 hours ago||In two (three?) televised La Lumiere games this year...||
...Poole never played point guard, though it's worth noting that they have an excellent player who does. Poole also didn't drive much or have many assists. He really was just a shooter in those games for his stacked high school team, but he's very good at that.

...he won the Big Ten regular season title in 2013 and 2015. And they had serious injury problems this year.
|3 days 5 hours ago||This is great stuff||
Thanks - as always - for posting this.
I'm excited to see what the team can do next year. It seems like they'll go as far as Simpson and Brooks can take them, because the front court should be excellent.
|3 days 5 hours ago||I'm sure he'll do a good job||
That seems like a given. What's not a given is that he'll be better than Crean.
|4 days 19 hours ago||Absolutely||
They won 26 games, won the Big Ten tournament, made the Sweet Sixteen, and finally went down in a close if ugly game. This team gave us a great ride in these last weeks. I'll remember them fondly.
|4 days 19 hours ago||I totally agree...||
...that the most difficult part of this is that we won't get to see them play together again. This was a very fun group to watch. They gave us a joyful ride. And they put Michigan basketball firmly back on the map - if it ever was off it. Michigan didn't just get lucky with a single group. None of these guys played on the Final Four team. This is undeniably a very good program now. There will likely be more good days.
|4 days 19 hours ago||Yes!||
That made three tournaments, made two Sweet Sixteens, won a Big Ten regular season title, and won a Big Ten tournament. And they gave us this very fun end to this season. They will be missed.
|4 days 20 hours ago||Ah||
Thought so but wasn't sure. Thanks.
|4 days 20 hours ago||Was Wagner hurt?||
Was it his wrist?
|6 days 19 hours ago||Here is yet another example...||
...of why Harbaugh is an excellent leader. A leader seeks to build people up, not tear them down.

...saying "let it go."
|1 week 5 hours ago||right||
There is a tremendous amount of domestic violence in the U.S. and in the world, but that doesn't mean Lewis did or did not do anything here. She has a story. He has a story. Seems like there is agreement that there was physical contact when he was in the closet. He may be guilty of assault. He may not be.

It was in the Legends Classic in NYC.
|1 week 1 day ago||Yep||
Good point indeed.
|1 week 2 days ago||I started laughing at the end of the game||
I thought Louisville was a play or two from running away with the game a couple of times. And it sometimes seemed like Michigan would never get a rebound or a clean look from three. I'm still not quite sure how they won. To borrow Coach Beilein's analogy, it's as if they were down a bunch of runs and then started hitting single after single after single. And then they were somehow ahead. And then they won, and Louisville and their slick coach and their team of giants were done.
Can anyone remember another team whose mental toughness grew this much in two months? They've gone from deflating to inspirational in something like six weeks.
|1 week 2 days ago||We're rooting for you with all of that||
You're a good guy, Mr. King.

Two Big Ten regular season titles
I'll take it!
|1 week 2 days ago||Go Blue!||
Das ist gut!!!!!!!!!
|1 week 2 days ago||Apologies for my thread about the refs at halftime||
I thought a tech was in order.
|1 week 2 days ago||Woohoo!!!!!||
I'm not sure how that happened! Sweet Sixteen!
|1 week 4 days ago||That was bonkers and stressful and great||
Ok. State was seemingly carving Michigan up for a long time. And they never stopped owning the offensive glass. But then Michigan decided to hit an absurd number of threes. It seems like it shouldn't have worked, but here we are.
|1 week 4 days ago||Michigan mostly wasn't shooting open threes||
And several of them were from pretty deep.
|1 week 4 days ago||Holy hell||
|1 week 4 days ago||Just FYI||
You're both going to hell.
|1 week 5 days ago||Can't hurt but probably won't help much||
But I'm done worrying about it.
|1 week 5 days ago||I'm not a fan of "they" either...||
...for the the same reason you aren't. But I wonder if I'm being a stick in the mud over something very small.
