beilein probably isn't blind to the fact it has cost us sometimes. i've wondered if the intent is as much about giving guaranteed minutes down the bench as it is about concern of a starter picking up 3 fouls in the first.
deploying the zone is also part of his philosophy. sometimes it works, sometimes it won't, but the experience is valuable to the bigger picture (which is developing basketball players more than even winning national championships).
this site has well articulated the cognitive dissonance of "doing it the right way" in a world of the one and done. the refrain on fouls/zone are a manifestation of the complex.

that thread and the fallout was a complete fiasco

Hell of a play by Spike.
Anyone else think this was by rule a travel at first though? It's clear he unintentionally "pushes" the ball upward while failing to collect the dribble. But if he cradled it in that motion and launched it upward to finish the same way (no use of backboard), would it be considered an illegal "self-pass" rather than just picking up a really bouncey dribble in the allowed number of steps?
I thought yes for sure but honestly the near-tautological language of the NCAA rule book didn't help. Reviewed a few other sources that lead me to believe it varies by level and that refs are allowed discretion in judging a players intent. You don't hear much about that in basketball other than flagrant foul situations, and judgment calls are exactly what they have tried to take OUT of the NFL.
Upshot is that I found a cool video many on the board might appreciate. I would have expected to see a lot more of this in the NBA, given that it's legal:

How is "2014 compared to the previous 2 years... clearly a trend"? I'm not a stathead but that pattern doesn't seem like enough data points to make a fair estimation.
We will likely never recruit at the level of Kentucky/UNC/Duke/Kansas year in/year out, but have had some classes that aren't far behind. And it's all beside the point, THIS is the trend you should keep an eye on:

He's poking fun at Brian. And moreover the inanity of CC threads because every candidate is a genius until they're not. If Oregon fans can turn on a coach this quickly... God save anyone who dares come to Ann Arbor.

thanks for the post.
mgoblog loves the numbers and you can read a lot from when/where money comes in. sounds like you're onto that but i'm not sure everyone understands basics of the spread, the idea of line movement and public vs the sharps. you could link to an existing article (or something you write) as "recommended reading for the novice" at top of each weekly post.

Pretty good track record for guys named Woodson. I hope a (or The) mathlete gets to work on that to help me know whether we should be recruiting ALL THE WOODSON.

sounds like deep down brian still has a little feelingsball left, in the most basic sense of the word. we care about sports. a lot. bravo on the excellent 2014 preview and thanks to the whole mgoteam!
|26 weeks 6 days ago||agree||
agree. brian put his balls to the wall on that one. fires me up and i'm buying on the bullish outlook for our D, but i'll eat a lemon if it hits!

I can appreciate the moral lesson of "dont punch ANYONE in the face." And with no legal knowledge to stand on, I think the court of law considers it an equal charge regardless of genders involved (pregnant women and domestic abuse aside)? That said, the court of public opinion has spoken: it's just not the same.

Late to the thread but thought maybe no one would have suggested the 'Skins. That's my pick on account of the NFC (L)East as well.

I've been hearing that opinion a lot around Chicago. For my money I'd probably agree, but it depends on your tastes. Festival experience be damned, Lolla has a solid lineup for rap/hip-hop, radio rock, EDM. Riot Fest is (or at least presents itself) more in the original "alternative" spirt of Lolla. No coincidence then that the man who created Lolla is headlining Riot Fest with Jane's Addiction.
