They'll release another ranking once all the draft declarations are made. And if McGary and Robinson come back, a starting lineup of Walton, LeVert, Robinson, Donnal, and McGary with Spike, Irvin, and Horford off the bench looks pretty freaking good.

All the sites redid their rankings after the season and people have been saying for months that Dillman wasn't anywhere near that 5 star rating this past season. Fans here have been second guessing the coaches for not offering a 5 star who was very interested and dismissing the criticism that Dillman wasn't that good.
The delay in updating the 2015 rankings is probably because sites were focusing on 2014 all star games and 2014 signing day. After that they went back and redid the 2015 rankings. In years past, there weren't even any junior rankings until spring of their junior year, but last year 247 shook things up.

Recently announced a top 2 of PSU and OSU, and many believe PSU will be his choice. Franklin has locked down Pennsylvania.
|1 week 5 days ago||I hated the announcers acting||
I hated the announcers acting dumbfounded that Wisconsin let him take that shot. Kid has been a sub 35% 3 pt shooter all season and was 4 feet beyond the line. Just because he made a couple of big shots the last two games doesn't mean you throw out all scouting and go by the last two games.
When the other team is down by 2 with 7 seconds left in the game that is exactly the type of shot you want them to take when a mediocre 3 shooter has the ball. Likely a long rebound so no easy tap in and he's unlikely to make that shot.
|1 week 5 days ago||He claimed he was just||
He claimed he was just hanging out with friends who were going to the game, but two visits in short succession is almost a trend and in recruiting when there's smoke there's often fire. Doesn't mean he's likely to flip but it's not out of the realm of possibility. Also, where is the Alamaba you speak of? Sounds like a magical place.
|1 week 5 days ago||Would it be a violation if NU||
Would it be a violation if NU decided to give players free football related health care for life after they couldn't play anymore? And signed a contract outside the NCAA LOI guaranteeing a 4 year scholarship? Then push for the cost of living scholarship money increase and they have met all of the players' demands.
And if free lifetime related healthcare after playing was against NCAA rules I'd love to see them implement it and dare the NCAA to stop them in the current culture of worry over football injuries.

When I've followerd the train of though of allowing NCAA athletes to make whatever money they want from agents and boosters and the use of their likeness, the one wall I always come up against is the use of their time. If they already spend 40 hours a week on their sport(countable and non-countable hours) and then spend 40 hours a week on class, where does the time come from to go to autograph signings and paid meet and greets? I really want players like Denard to be able to make money from all their talent and hard work while they are in school but I just don't see enough time for making money along with school and practice.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||No one||
No one is stopping you from making a fake sign that says "Dave Brandon Urinal" and putting it on the wall in one of the stadium bathrooms. I think that would be hilarious if you could actually make it look really official and see how long it stays up.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||No pressure at all since||
No pressure at all since Brandon never saw the field. If that's the standard for the position it shouldn't be too hard to coach guys so they never get playing time,
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I've been wondering lately,||
I've been wondering lately, is there anything keeping schools from paying players after they graduate? If Michigan just decided to say "Hey Denard, thank you for all youy gave to this program, here take this $250,000 as a gift" could the NCAA do anything?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I've been thinking the same||
I've been thinking the same for the last couple of weeks. While he doesn't have the pts Burke had as a freshman he also isn't the only option at pg with Albrecht there to pick up the slack when he struggles. If he puts in the offseason work that Burke, Stauskas, and LeVert have he could really blow up next season. Unlikely he wins NPOY but he should be all B1G and compete for B1G POY.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I think it has to do with the||
I think it has to do with the fact that Michigan is a very 3 pt orriented team and doesn't have big players down low. They just don't look like the blueprint for a great team in most commentators minds. Much more the look of a Cinderella team/underdog than a frontrunner.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Forwards||
Tenn Forwards: 13 pts, 9 rebounds.
Morgan and Robinson: 28 pts, 12 rebounds.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Miss||
was thinking the miss on the second was better. Doesn't let them get ready on the inbounds and means they can't move the ball up the court with a long pass before the clock starts.
|3 weeks 20 hours ago||Franklin||
Franklin seems to be doing a really good job convincing Pennsylvania prospects that they should stay in state and go to PSU. Similar to Hoke after the RR years.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I feel like it's the team's||
I feel like it's the team's profile as being a bunch of shooters instead of having a strong paint presence and banging down low like other successful teams do. I know Morgan has stepped up, but they are still undersized at the 4 and pundits seem to believe it is easier to shut a shooter down than it is to stop a dominant post player.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Don't know if you posted||
Don't know if you posted anything on this or if you can, but how big a factor was the losing in Dashawn picking Alabama over Michigan? And if that wasn't such a big factor, what was the biggest reason for Bama?

I wish I could make 150k a year living in Italy playing basketball. I'd probably get my degree first, but I think that would be an awesome way to spend your 20s. Not making the millions you would in the NBA but being able to travel around Europe and learn a foreign language while being paid to play a sport would be pretty cool.

If Michigan could get a player transfering due to lack of playing time, they can't do much better than taking a backup from Alabama. Plus having a senior who knows Nuss's offense at center would be pretty nice on a mostly underclassmen line.

Hope MSU beats Wisconsin tomorrow, the chance to go 5-0 against MSU/OSU this season would be great.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||OSU scored 2 pts in the first||
OSU scored 2 pts in the first 6:30 of the second half.

Also, just let your backups foul them like crazy since they are shooting 33% on FTs.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Seems like the way to beat||
Seems like the way to beat OSU is just let them take 3s. They went 1-14 yesterday and are 1-8 so far today.

I don't know if I've ever seen a team go 1-14 from 3. That's just terrible, and yet OSU still won.
|5 weeks 13 hours ago||Thought we took Spike over||
Thought we took Spike over Della Valle as we were looking for a PG incase Burke left. Though I'd take either one over him at this point. Thought he was supposed to be a pretty good shooter and maybe shooting 35% from 2 is good by OSU standards, but he's no where close to LeVert or Albrecht.

Wow, not watching this game, but how does OSU have more OReb than Purdue has DReb?
