As a State Trooper, the post I worked at received a batch of the maps to give out to the pubic. When it was reported about the fictitious towns I kept a few for my scrapbook. I loved every second of the OSU whining.
|22 hours 23 min ago||Pick and Roll - Pick and Pop||
The two things that make his offense hard to defend are these two types of plays. You'll notice in the half court sets that there are two players standing on the wings that appear to do nothing. The 4 or the 5 will be very high in the post. From this set the guards move the ball around the perimeter I till they create a seam. When the guard with the ball sees the opening in the defense the guard attacks at that point. This attack point puts the defense into a reaction mode. If the defense continues to pay more attention to the wings the pick and roll comes more into play. If the defense plays help defense on the guard the ball is passed to the short side wing or if the guard gets deep enough into the lane the pass is made to the far side wing. Of course the guard has options to dribble dive and pull up or get to the rack. It's not as complicated as some make it. But the ball handling guard is the trigger man in the offense and he has to make several reads during ball movement. The guards interchange with each other and the attack point can come from either side of the floor. That's the best I can do to explain it. Of course you have the top side 3 point shot that is a Beilien special.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Sometimes the damage is done||
during the summer workouts while coaching staff is not or can't be around. Then in some cases it's too far gone to fix. Just saying. I've been in a situation like that and it's hard to fix. I'm also in agreement with another poster on here. I would like to see more passion from Hoke. Teams can and do take in their coaches personality. Hoke might be coddling these guys too much. Start getting in their face as a coach instead of your seniors doing it.
|5 days 11 hours ago||I'm not sure Hoke is the problem.||
I've been reading, and they could be rumors, but I'm hearing about Senior leadership was lacking. Seniors yelling at the younger players for mistakes instead of nurturing them and teaching them.

to handle Kentucky. It's early but UConn has two blocks at the rim and forced two other errant shots down low. UConn is faster on the break also.

I didn't realize that the broadcast was Florida Teamcast. Couldn't believe how much attention Florida was getting even with the loss. Finally found TBS and Jim Nance. Now I get to here him fawn all over Kentucky. On Wisconsin.
|1 week 6 days ago||This is the ugliest||
Semi final game I've ever seen. Nobody can score and these teams are just not running any offense. They don't pass, dribble drive, or shoot very well from the three point line. Ugh!!!!

Delaware's colors are blue and yellow and their football team wears the winged helmet. How ironic if State got beat by a team with colors so similar. Little brother beat by the 2nd cousin.

At some point you can't stay atop the mountain any longer. When your slid starts you can't stop it. Izzo's act is getting old and after this year is over what will he do. This was his best team in years. Next year will be horrible for him. He can't rebuild after losing Paine and Harris like Michigan did after losing Burke and Hardaway. Izzo will self implode next year. Can't wait to watch it. He is not as classy as people say because he hasn't suffered in years until this year and look how he acted. Like I said, his act is getting old.

I'll cut it short. She said. He said. No evidence. Unwilling victim. A preponderance of evidence of 51 percent. Gibbons found responsible. Letter to Gibbons to expel. Over. FERPA guidelines adhered to. But there are still people who think it's their business. NOT.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||This is the crap that makes a mockery||
of this great university. It's an absolute joke to name a football coach anything but a football coach. Keep your stupid money. You've got enough of mine to cover expenses without me wanting my name plastered all over everything. Who sits around and thinks this stuff up. I can't wait for the first broadcaster to use this title when talking about Hoke and thus making Michigan the laughing stock of college football. It's bad enough to do this if we were 11-2 but after what we've endured the last few years this is pitiful. One step closer to having advertising in the stadium. Maybe the Michigan GoBlue Club banner will have names on it after this. I can't believe I'm reading this. Someone at the University has to say no to the money bags regardless of their requests or get Brandon under control if this was his idea. Either way this is a joke.

Is still in school. He should have been expelled thus his worries about what college he is going to attend would be a moot point. I believe in second chances but that assault was really bad.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||This offense where your best shooter||
Is just standing around falls on the coaching staff. The wings are just standing around and no one is moving. No pressure on the defense. No attempts to get to the rack. Five missed put backs at the rim. Against so so teams might work but good teams have figured out how to defend Michigan. Keep pushing the guards outside the three point line and keep some pressure on the wings and Michigan has to settle for long threes late in the shot clock. Not good.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||After reading some posts about recruiting||
It is evident that either the Big Ten must change or the NCAA must mandate that all recruiting be done on equal ground. Until the Big Ten changes from honoring a four year scholarship to renewing scholarships on a yearly basis the Big Ten and Michigan will be in the "also ran" class of college football. So there are some difficult choices ahead for everyone. Be pleased that Michigan honors a four year commitment to a student athlete regardless if he pans out or not or go start doing things the SEC way and start calling kids into the office and start telling them there services are no longer needed and tell him his scholarship is not going to be renewed. Then and only then will the Big Ten and Michigan be able to compete with ten rest of college football. Michigan would never have to sign a mere 16 players again. This class would probably sign between 22 and 26 kids. I'm not advocating this method but I'm tired of not being on equal footing with the other conferences.

For information that is none of their business. No criminal charges so FOIA cannot be filed. FERPA guidelines state no information can be divulged without the students permission. Gibbons would not give permission. So everyone needs to look in the mirror and ask themselves. Should any university violate the law to satisfy the publics curiosity? NO. It's not you fricken business. Get over it. Go stick your nose in your neighbors business and let this thing die. Hoke, Brandon, and everyone else at the university can not discuss it.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||It's because the media||
Believes they are entitled so the rest of the public also believes they are entitled. I agree with you. People think they deserve to pry into other peoples business because they are coworkers, students at the same university or even season ticket holders. There are laws to protect even suspects, perpetrators, and those accused of acts or crimes. It seems everyone is getting off on other people difficult situation. On top of that. It seems that every time something like this happens people want everyone fired from top to bottom. That's why FERPA, HIPA and other laws of protection aren't spelled FOIA.

|11 weeks 3 days ago||I'm not certain||
But dismissing someone based upon a "he said - she said" allegation might set the university up for wrongful dismissal lawsuit. I agree with you and I can't wait for the whole (truth) story to come out. There are 4 stories out there. The complainants, the police, the prosecutors office and the university. Let's hope the truth comes out somewhere in there.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||In a court of law||
A person is innocent until proven guilty. I have dealt with many so called victims that were vague, incoherent about the facts, or just unwilling to pursue complaints for a variety of reasons. If a victim refuses to cooperate there are certain cases where they can be forced to testify. Those instances are rare to say the least. Hostile witnesses and/or complainant/victims are the worst to deal with when on the stand because they jeopardize the case and can even embarrass the prosecution. Needless to say this case leads me to believe the complainant was not willing to cooperate with police or possibly prosecutors who interview victims involving sexual assault.

And we won. Three wins against current Top 10 teams in 7 days = #11 ranking. But it could all go south in another week. Tough conference.
