Maybe I'm reading them wrong but we had an experienced 5th yr QB heading into 2014.
|18 hours 54 min ago||It's not that uncommon||
If Pitino is speaking about it, I'm guessing it happens more then we know.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Reread his post||
He clearly says this is Bo Ryan's first FF.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Once||
Over that period only 10 teams have won a NC in basketball:
UConn - 4
UNC - 2
Duke - 2
The other winners are Kentucky, Louisville, Kansas, Syracuse, Maryland and MSU. It's a essentially, with the possible exception of Maryland, a who's who of the elite programs in college basketball.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Arizona||
hasn't won a NC during that stretch. In fact, Arizona has only made one FF appearance during that stretch and that was way back in 2001.
|2 days 15 hours ago||No UConn???||
UConn has won 4 national championships - 1999, 2004, 2011 and 2014. Since their first title in 1999, they've won more NC's then any other men's program.
|2 days 15 hours ago||MSU has||
7 Final Four appearances in 16 years. That's damn good.
UNC and Kansas have 8 combined over that 16 year period.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Doesn't Duke start 3 true freshmen||
Tyus Jones, Justise Winslow and Jahlil Okafor?? Grayson Allen sees a lot of time and he's a freshmen too. Matt Jones is a sophomore.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Bo Ryan||
this is his second FF. Wisky made it last year too.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Depends on the coach and program||
Bill Self has been at Kansas 12 years. He's 52 and I doubt he leaves to take another job in college.
I'm guessing Sean Miller isn't going anywhere else in college unless it's UK or Duke.
Izzo's been at MSU 20 yrs.
Matta's been at OSU 11 years and he's only 47.
Few's been at Gonzaga for 15 yrs.
Donovan's been at Florida for almost 20 yrs.
Rick Barnes has been at Texas 17 yrs (although a lot of Texas fans wish that weren't true).
Yeah, coaches are going to climb the ladder but UM should be a spot pretty high on the ladder.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Sullinger||
was from Columbus. I get what you're saying though.
|2 days 17 hours ago||Kentucky recruiting||
While the coaches might not have a ton of time to directly recruit him, I'm guessing UK getting all the press for being 38-0 and in their 4th FF in the last 5 years is a pretty good recruiting tool.
|2 days 17 hours ago||UK early entries||
Most of them aren't doing too bad. 12 of their 16 early entrees have been first round draft picks so the received guaranteed contracts. Some of the better performers after Wall and Davis:
Patrick Patterson is in his 7th yr in the NBA.
Erik Bledsoe is in his 5th yr in the NBA. This past off season he signed a 5 yr $70 million dollar contract.
Brandon Knight has been in the NBA 4 years. He made the All-rookie team his first year and has a career scoring average of 15 pts/game.
Michael Kidd Gilcrest is in his 3rd year in the NBA. He made the All-Rookie second team his first year.
Terrence Jones is in his 3rd year in the NBA and averaged 12 pts/game last year.

most of the Power 5 conferences don't have hockey. The Big Ten is the only power 5 conference that has hockey. Most of these smaller schools are in areas where hockey is big (the northeast, midwest and the upper part of the great plains).
|2 days 18 hours ago||Also remember||
with the draft you're probably going to have a mixed bag of players on both teams oline. Instead of having the first string oline on one team and the second unit on the other, you're going ot have a mix of players on the oline for both teams.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Who knows but||
Levert is from the Columbus area.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Yup||
I posted it in another thread a few days ago but if you look at QBR ratings, etc. Gardner was a middle of the pack QB in the Big Ten last year. For all of our frustrations with the QB play at UM last year, there were a number of teams in the Big Ten who had QB's that performed worse then Gardner.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Best coach in 50 years???||
You think Dantonio is a better coach than Saban???
|6 days 5 hours ago||You said above||
"Elite coaches don't lose 6 of 7 to their rival" so by your definition Tom Osborne isn't an elite coach and McKay and Bryant had poor stretches against their rival too. Please, enlighten us, what is your definition of an elite coach??????
|6 days 11 hours ago||Bear Bryant||
had a stretch where he went 1-4-1 against Tennessee. Should we maybe reconsider whether he should be talked about as an elite coach?
Tom Osbourne had a stretch where he went 1-8 against Oklahoma. Shold we not consider him an elite coach?
John McKay had a stretch where he went 2-5 against ND. Should we maybe reconsider whether he's an elite coach?
|6 days 13 hours ago||In his prime||
|6 days 13 hours ago||Have you seen his entire will?||
Maybe he did leave money to other institutions and causes.
|6 days 13 hours ago||UNC academic scandal||
Depending on what you read the roots of the scandal might have began as early as the mid-90's. Dean Smith was still the basketball coach at UNC then.
|6 days 18 hours ago||Preferred walk on vs walk on||
What's the difference between a preferred walk on vs a non-preferred walk on?
|1 week 13 hours ago||Agree||
I'd like to see at least one Big Ten team make it to the FF - preferably Wisconsin.
|1 week 14 hours ago||One concern for next year||
With or without Levert this should be a dangerous team on the offensive end. My main concern, especially with Irvin at the 4, is how well the team will hold up on the defensive glass. With Irvin at the 4, it is a pretty small lineup.
|1 week 14 hours ago||yeah||
Can't remember the players name but last year one of the big men redshirted and was supposedly impressing a lot of people in practice. This year, the results on the court didn't seem to match the practice hype from last year.
|1 week 1 day ago||Here's a few||
If what has been reported about UNC bball players taking classes that never really existed, I'd have to throw Dean Smith, Roy Williams, Bill Guthridge and Matt Doherty in this group.
Rupp wasn't exactly a saint either, was he? (and I'm not just talking about his racial views).
|1 week 2 days ago||Heck||
Hoke had some darn good recruiting classes too. If you look at UM's average star/player it's pretty much Top 10-15 each year for the last 4-5 years. When you look at the recruiting rankings for Big Ten teams over the 4-5 yrs, OSU and UM are 1 and 2...and 3rd place isn't even close to UM or OSU in terms of the number of 4 and 5 star recruits. Hoke and his staff just couldn't develop the players once they go to AA.
|1 week 2 days ago||UM's defense||
also had the good fortune of playing some of the worst QB's in college football. Going by ESPN's QBR ratings, UM got to face (for comparison's sake Devin Gardner's QBR rating was 49.7)
CJ Brown, Maryland, 48.8
Trevor Siemian, NU, 43.3
Hackenber, PSU, 35.8
Andrew Hendrix, Miami (OH), 35.5
Kameron Bryant, App St, 33.5
Zander Diamont, IU, 19.4
So essentially UM's defense got to go up against 6 QB's who performed worse then Devin Gardner. That would make a lot of defenses look good.
