Fear the Vier.
|2 days 18 hours ago||I would think yes.||
We would have room for both even if Austin Hatch is on a basketball scholarship and McGary stays. The weird aspect is that we would have six scholarship freshmen, four of whom are wings, if you count DJ Wilson as a stretch four, otherwise five are wings.
This guy likes 'em both:

They look good but remind me a lot of Syracuse.

A starting five of Walton-Irvin-LeVert-Donnal-McGary with Chatman and Spike as the first two off the bench should be very good indeed. Walton can distribute to four reliable scorers. Anything we get out of Wilson or Doyle will be a bonus, but I believe they'll have to play to round out the roster and as preparation for the next year. If we can pick up Dawkins or Abdur-Rahkman, or both, that would provide some terrific scoring and athleticism off the bench.
It seems like the ideal 13-man roster composition is:
2 point guards
4 big men (some combo of stretch-4s and post-up)
We could be very close to that next season:
PG: Walton, Albrecht
Wings: LeVert, Irvin, Chatman, 1-2 late adds?
Bigs: McGary, Donnal, Wilson, Doyle, Bielfeldt
And while anything could happen, for the first time in a while it does not appear we'll be counting on a true freshman to start. For that to happen despite our recent attrition is remarkable.

You're killing me, Smalls.

As far as I'm concerned, Robin Parks is a complete slut!

After knowing the outcome I love being able to see the clock tick down in the background:

|4 days 11 hours ago||That specifically probably didn't hurt him with his fanbase||
as they were probably sharpening their conspiracy knives on the Woodson-Manning whetstone already.
|4 days 12 hours ago||FWIW Abdur-Rahkman is only a week younger than LeVert||
9/1/1994 and 8/25/1994, respectively. Reminds me of Clayton Richard coming in the year after Matt Gutierrez despite being nine months older.

I like my All In shirt from 2010 but that season was not as enjoyable.

My maternal grandmother grew up in Topeka and graduated from the University of Missouri. After a year of law school somewhere else, she transferred to the Michigan law school for her second year. She met my grandfather while studying in the law library with a male friend over Thanksgiving weekend. Grandpa passed the guy a note asking for an introduction. When Granny went home over Christmas, a guy tried to propose to her but she said her heart belonged to another. At some point she learned that Michigan wouldn't grant her a JD unless she took three years worth of classes, so she continued her Alex Legion-esque law studies at a third school, Washburn University in Topeka.
Granny and Grandpa were married in September 1940 and called Grand Rapids home for most of the following 61 years. My grandfather had Alzheimer's and was barely able to converse by the time I graduated from UM in 1996. But Granny was there, hositing a stein of Hacker Pschorr Dark at The Heidelberg with the best of them.
I remember her writing me a note when I was in school, mentioning in passing how much she had enjoyed a Michigan basketball win recently, stating that "J. Rose even made some important free throws for a change!"
She took a tumble in June 2003 while traveling, probably passing out when she couldn't get enough air. Diagnosed with congestive heart failure, she got to see all of her descendants in the final three months. I was there to celebrate her 88th birthday (one day after my 29th) in early September. I bought a blue car that month, the same Chrysler hue as my brother's and parents'. Granny, in a thin voice, said "someone needs to get a maize one."
She died in late September of that year, and I miss her a lot. She was kind, generous, an excellent needlecrafter (she knew me well...I have a cross-stich she made that says "If it weren't for the last minute, a lot of things wouldn't get done), and a true blue Michigan fan.
I enjoyed UTL 2 tremenously. It was my birthday that evening, and in the aftermath of Gardner's #98 debut I realized it was my 98th Michigan game and that the next day would have been Granny's 98th birthday.
Sorry for your loss, but sounds like she lived a darn full life. Go Blue.

A premium scorer at the PG position makes everything easier for his teammates. His father was co-MVP of the 1991 McDonald's All-American Game with Chris Webber. He had 21 points when Temple lost to Michigan two years later in the Elite 8 (teammates with Eddie Jones and Aaron McKie, those Owls had some talent).
|5 days 13 hours ago||Well yeah||
Same goes for the next meeting and how nice it would have been to slip Gov Kasich's "don't use the letter M" proclamation into the haha file with Terry Glenn. Just win. It would have been this, version 2.0:

Anyway, I'm guessing that trolling Michigan fans equals a four-credit course in Miller's Communications curriculum at Ohio. I say he gets an A.

on the list of things that worry Michigan fans. Braxton Miller's opinions about anything definitely do not.

Least interesting game of chicken, ever.

He said the only real trouble he had with the locals was when he tried to convince them that pro wrestling was fake. It was the most popular programming on Lebanese TV.

She cares about UM sports but from a distance. So her saying a recruit's name got my attention - apparently she read an article on some non-sports site about his story...people.com? If he actually plays any minutes for UM that will get major attention from all over.

Talk to the Three Stooges, if they can get soda water through the phone line back in the 40s, they should be able to handle your fist today. I hope you succeed while Tom Crean is still using Twitter.

I'm sorry about all the things she won't get to see. I guess I hadn't followed the story that closely, since she made so many appearances at MSU games lately I figured she must be doing better. Ugh.

I don't think they've ever had any HBO shows streamed. Watching The Wire took forever that way.
