Right in the lumber yard.
Sorry, Caddyshack was on last night.

Jordan already bet it all on a golf game, along with $49,800 of his own money. Barkley has been taking lessons and is excited.

Nice finish to the above post. I really enjoyed that.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Like I said the other day,||
Like I said the other day, hopefully Caris got a call from his old buddy GRIII right after the latter got released from his non-guaranteed contract with the T'wolves...
Dawkins just hit 8 friggin' 3s in a Big Ten game as a freshman. Wow. His family doesn't need the money, so hopefully Ol' Dad gets in his ear about that and we get 4 years out of this kid.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Amen. That is so hard to||
Amen. That is so hard to believe that Dayton was his next best offer. He would be a star already at Northwestern, for instance. He may end up a star at Michigan.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I have the same struggle as||
I have the same struggle as the father of 2 young sons. We grow 'em big in our family, so they are going to have some of the natural attributes, but I got lit up a number of times in just 3 years of football before shifting focus to basketball. I will continue to monitor this stuff. Too bad for the young man in Florida.

Has young Glenn been in touch with his old buddy Caris?

That's the impression that I get. But lets all just simmer down. On the other hand, that's a hell of a hat that Harbaugh is wearing.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Sina would have to sit out||
Sina would have to sit out the year that Caris would be a senior. If you're making reference to number of scholarships, don't we have one for this guy?
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Nope, not really that||
Nope, not really that similar.

Glad to hear about Drake Harris having a nice spring. That kid is a real talent. Great hands, and he moves effortlessly. Here's hoping he is finally healthy and starts getting in to the end zone for the Wolverines.

I'll do it in 3 shots. I'm going to nail it, stone cold, with pretty much jump shot form. Please pack the gym first, as I like the pressure. I'm going to hang the gooseneck out there for about 15 seconds after and follow it with whatever Stauskas' latest celebration happens to be. Also, please provide Andrew Dakich in uniform and a chair for my celebration.

Ahhh, nostalgia... Willie Mitchell. I'll take this opportunity to talk about myself.
I somehow outscored Willie head to head our senior seasons of high school basketball. Of course, one of his teammates went crazy for 26 and they blew us out. But wins and losses are just details and nobody remembers those, right?
Cool story bro?

I admit, I chuckled.
Very stressful work things went on over night and have continued in to an otherwise solid Friday. I needed some stupidity. I might chuckle again.

And "picking up checks" is all they are doing. Not one from the group of Stauskas, McGary, and Robinson is making a meaningful contribution in the NBA so far.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||So many negative thoughts.||
So many negative thoughts. I'll get the one positive one out of the way: I love Michigan basketball. Beyond that, however....
- this team is painful to watch.
- Chatman is terrible. That is a missed opportunity for a redshirt.
- There are so many "young team" mistakes, that its no longer an excuse. So many dumb things happening, with Chatman's twice fouling of a 3-point shooter leading the way.
- Nobody on this team is ready and willing to "be the MAN" and take over. Not Caris, not anybody. I miss Nik so bad.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Caris is far from ready to||
Caris is far from ready to contribute in the NBA. Chad Ford clearly does not watch Michigan games.
Caris has made himself in to a good college player. That's it. Its a stretch to call him a star at the Big Ten level. He is skilled, and tall, which is a very good starting point. He is not where Stauskas was a year ago, and Nik, after being drafted in the lottery, is not making a meaningful contribution to the Kings right now. Caris would not fare better.
Caris has some huge positives: skilled, very tall/long, and seems like he has the work ethic and attitude of a great kid. He is infinitely better off returning to Ann Arbor both for his game and his academics. 6'7" and skilled or athletic is not a predictor of success in the NBA. 6'7" and skilled is average in the NBA. His first contract will be the only guarantee he gets.
I enjoy watching him play, but we are all a little drunk with the Wolverines-to-the-NBA run of the last few years. Lets see Caris become a star, and a very good college player over the next season and a half, and then wish him well in to the NBA.

I know there are a ton of these 'sources' out there, but...
A co-worker who played football at a smaller school, who is close friend's with a couple former M players that seem to be in the know about the search, insists that Plan B was indeed Payton. I doubted it a bit, also, but I don't know why they would be so firm about it if there was no truth to it.

Start Dawkins over Chatman this weekend at Purdue. Do it. Do it now. Kam might be nice coming off the bench.

Suppose Harbaugh had been Michigan's coach this year already. Isn't it highly, highly likely that JH could have got better results out of Devin Gardner than Hoke did?

Isn't Jon Teske a 2015? Just a 7-footer with serious potential.

I had a good experience 2 weekends ago at American Sports Saloon at 1200 Decatur in the Quarter. Close to a lot of the touristy things, but they tuck about 25 screens in to what is otherwise a pretty typical corner NOLA location with bars on 2 floors. Food was solid and the beer selection was good.
I watched, while waiting for an M friend, with 4 Mississippi State grads, and relentlessly reminded them how nice it will be to have their coach next year. They seemed to think that was a real possibility.

I've got dual last resorts.
Nussmeier - lets see what he can do.
PJ Fleck - Row The Fuckin' Boat.
You said last resort.

Yes, I am pretty sure he did a prep year.

Why in the living hell would anybody want to go to NC State over the University of Michigan? The answer is not one trainwreck football season.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||My two best games as an||
My two best games as an all-conference high school basketball player were when I was sick as a dog with the flu. They didn't contain 'clutch moments' like last second shots because we blew the teams out, mostly due to my own early barrage. These were both outings like 15-18 in the first quarter and then finish with 22-26 because I'm sitting in the 2nd half or even in the locker room.
There is something that the studies miss or can't account for. Those were scenarios where I personally didn't want to think about anything, I just wanted to get out, play hard, win game, go home, sleep. Other games that didn't go as well, I may have felt a lot better, or maybe simply thought too much about the opponent I was playing or the shot I was taking. Those 2 big flu games, I didn't care what the circumstances were, who the opponent was, or which one of them had the misfortune to guard me.
Maybe its the adverse condition, the sickness, or in Horry's case, the pressure, that will make someone thrive. I don't understand it either, and I'm sure it has something to do with confidence, but I'm also sure there is a component of "not thinking too much".
|33 weeks 4 days ago||I have come to know this||
I have come to know this young man's grandfather quite well. I admire Grampa. If this kid is anything like his grandfather, which from conversations with the older man I know that young Jon is, then Beilein and the Wolverines have just signed up a very high quality kid. This is great news for the program.

The Wizards just got Paul Pierce, so its going to be tough for this kid to get a lot of minutes for them real soon, especially with young Otto Porter still in Washington. His best shot would come with another team.

3-0 Nederland. Suck it, Brazil. They were terrible.
