lol I didn't downvote you actually. I don't downvote unless someone's being a dick or someone makes a really stupid new topic that shouldn't be posted. But I did upvote your first team now since I agree with it.
"most users would use common sense and understand that, while Hardaway is VERY athletic, GRIII is on a higher level" Are you saying it's common sense that GRIII is more athletic than Hardaway? The athetlic abilities of Michigan's basketball players is not common knowledge actually. And even among Michigan fans, I wouldn't say GRIII being more athletic is common sense. They seem the same to me in that regard.

/s? Yeah, Hardaway was pretty good, but if only he were athletic...

"I didn't know if this had been discussed in length..."
Yes. It has. Almost every week. You didn't even post news. It'd be one thing if Jalen made some remark and you're reporting and/or commenting about it.
|3 days 23 hours ago||I agree for his role at||
I agree for his role at Michigan, but I was talking about in regards to the NBA. He's not gonna be a big man in the NBA. He's already got problems dealing with big men in college. I don't watch much of the pros, but the idea that he's got a better future posting up in the paint in the NBA than a guy you have to guard on the perimeter as well sounds insane to me.

I loved the Fab 5 and I like Jalen, but seriously OP...why?

Huh? Usually seems like it's the older members on here who remember the sanctions and all that who get upset.

Doesn't GRIII really need to improve his 3-point shot to be valuable in the NBA?
|4 days 2 hours ago||All of the above, except I||
All of the above, except I don't think anyone mentioned Dion Harris. That guy would have been so much better if he actually had some help.

Downvoted? Really? Someone's sarcasm meter is FUBAR.

So have McGary and GRIII fallen off draft boards?

Or maybe worn out from playing multiple games on consecutive days with less than a week to recover for the NCAA tourney.
FWIW, I just turned 30. So I didn't grow up with it exactly, but I was still young when it started, and I don't really give a damn about it. Unless, like others mention, Michigan is on the bubble and needs it to cement a spot in the real tourney. Amazingly, that might not even be a concern for the rest of Beilein's tenure.

Could expand it beyond the hash marks if it was pushed back.

The 25-yard line might be a bit much, at least at first. Then again, would kickers really miss that much more from, say, the 10 as opposed to the 2? It does seem pretty pointless to keep it as is, given that it's nearly automatic.
But what do you do about 2-point conversions then? You can't move those to the 25-yard line because that'd probably fail around 99.6% of the time. If you just moved kicks out to the 25, everyone would just go for 2.

"This kid has shown such tremendous growth in just a year's time. He has transformed from a corner shooter to a playmaking offensive machine."
So he was Just a Shooter last year? I disagree. Not Just a Shooter (TM) was prevalent last year as well for a reason. Obviously he's much improved though.

That is one of the worst commercials I've ever seen, but also hilarious because of it.
|5 days 6 hours ago||Yeah, he goes overboard||
Yeah, he goes overboard sometimes during a violent, physical game like football, so he's probably going to reach across the table and beat Mayhew to a pulp when Mayhew rejects his first offer.

That doesn't make Wilt a bad guy; it just makes him my hero

A side of ranch haha. Come on. He had a glass of it to wash down the pizza #realman #manup #buildmass #broscience #hashtagsanywhereoutsideoftwitterannoythehelloutofme

Tempting but we still have NCAA tournament seeding to play for.
|1 week 1 day ago||Hahahaha that is amazing.||
Hahahaha that is amazing. Doesn't Richard Pitino look like Tim Roth, but from the 50's?
|1 week 1 day ago||OK, what's your point? Kenpom||
OK, what's your point? Kenpom isn't as good as an observant monkey at predicting results?
|1 week 1 day ago||Jesus dude lighten up. You||
Jesus, dude. Lighten up. You seriously asked the mods to delete the other thread because some people were being smartasses? And now it just looks like you were upset about that and made another post looking like it's trying to be critical of Kenpom but it's hard to tell because you don't explicitly say that. Is 60% for Kenpom good? It sounds like you're trying to say no but to be vague to avoid critcism.
|1 week 1 day ago||Sweet, thanks. Ohio drops||
Sweet, thanks. Ohio drops down to 20th, makes more sense
|1 week 1 day ago||I live abroad so I haven't||
I live abroad so I haven't really been able to follow things outside of Michigan, but didn't Ohio have a great nonconference run? Kenpom doesn't put any weight on more recent games, does it? That's what I'd like to see. Not to throw out early results, but a slight incremented weight the more recent a game is.
EDIT: I used this thing called google and checked it out. Jesus. Undefeated but they played nobody. Doesn't even look like they were really blowing teams out. I don't get it either.
|1 week 2 days ago||That's one reason I think||
That's one reason I think people are putting too much pressure on Hoke for this coming year. Certainly they should be improved overall as a team, but some people are talking about how he's gotta win 10 or beat State and Ohio or whatever or he's canned. That seems ridiculous.
|1 week 2 days ago||Except that I'm actually||
Except that I'm actually happy to see Funchess isn't listed there as a TE
|1 week 2 days ago||I would really hope if that||
I would really hope if that was a problem at Bama, that Nuss and Hoke would have worked that out beforehand.

Hey man, don't you dare bash NASCAR! I got dizzy watching Michigan in 2-minute drills
|1 week 3 days ago||In my younger, more||
In my younger, more superstitious days, I was totally convinced they lost a game once because I was really sick that day. So, sorry about that guys.
|1 week 3 days ago||Yes, this. I know people get||
Yes, this. I know people get sick of the Fab 5 getting brought up, but remember it wasn't just Webber (or Webber and Rose). I loved the Fab 5. People don't have to piss and moan about Webber just because someone posted a highlight video.
EDIT: I get sick of the near weekly threads about a Jalen comment too, but someone points out he's usually responding to a direct question about the Fab 5, such as the one last week or so when Rose told off Webber.
