Yeah, but it's going to be the first game and a road game at that. Isn't Utah supposed to be pretty good? They finished 29th in Football Outsiders combined metric and I thought I heard they should improve. Utah isn't Rutgers. I'm actually quite optimistic about this season's potential, but I'm not optimistic about that first game at all.

Didn't we win against a good OSU squad a year or 2 ago with something like 1 made 3-pointer?

"I wouldn't consider a school with the same number of national titles as Maryland in the past 15 years to be a truly elite squad."
So Kansas and Kentucky aren't elite. You're choosing one good thing from several programs without looking at their overall body of work, which has flaws (except friggin Duke), but then criticizing State for a specific flaw.

Yeah I guess that's where we are. Michigan has not been that good historically actually, and it seems a lot of people are unaware of that. I'm not sure who has a better head-to-head record against us in the B1G, but I do remember seeing Ohio State does. I'd also guess Indiana, Purdue, Illinois, and State do. So we're slightly better than the middle of the pack historically in the B1G. Anyone complaining about where we are with Beilein is nuts. Where is Beilein among Michigan coaches for winning percentage? I'd guess he hasn't been around long enough to have many overall wins.
EDIT: The program's win percentage is .600 with vacated wins and .582 without. It's right on the wikipedia page for MBB.

They also made at least one national championship game appearance that I can think of. They were unlucky to have faced that UNC team that was one of the best in a long time, maybe until Kentucky this year.
Annoys me when people say that about the Fab 5 too. They didn't just make 2 Final Fours. They wont their first game of it and made the national championship game. Obviously things get harder the farther you go, so don't cheat a team who made it to the final round.

Ugh. This is exactly why I hate that guys can foul out in basketball. Auguste is playing well but he's going to sit on the bench for the rest of the half and the whole 2nd half might be affected because of an absolutely awful call for his first foul.

I hope someone checked the depth beforehand lol. I've jumped from a pretty high cliff before but not quite that high. There was one I passed on in Vietnam. If you closed your legs, you hit bottom, but no one got hurt. If you kept them open a bit, it hurt your balls.

"Those alley oops wouldn't happen in a real conference." Maybe they wouldn't. There are ways to defend against the alley oop, ya know?
This isn't just a guy who has played in high school and you're watching tape. Since he's played a career in the Ivy League, I'd wanna see tape of entire games. All I got from watching those highlights is that the guy is athletic.
And yes actually you can disregard his ability to shoot 3's. He's amazing in his highlights. He doesn't miss. Yet, he's actually a terrible 3-point shooter.

Well, I ain't read so good. I was thinking he was a C because of who I was replying to. Can't really call a guy an upgrade over Max when he plays a totally different position.
Actually that sounds even worse in that case. .269 on threes? Seriously, whose minutes is this guy going to take shooting from outside like that? Is this guy going to get into a game with Irvin, Rahk, LeVert, and Dawkins all able to play small forward at times? Sounds like this guy's going to ride pine. I'd rather keep Max as a backup C considering we don't know how Donnal will work out and even if Doyle takes a big step next year, they need depth there.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Well, I'm not very||
Well, I'm not very knowledgeable about watching tape, but it is the Ivy League and they're called highlights for a reason.
|3 days 2 hours ago||How would it be an upgrade on||
How would it be an upgrade on both sides of the ball? What do you know about this guy's ability on defense? Also, his stats are pretty good, but I'd guess Max would have similar stats if he was playing in the Ivy League. He's not any bigger than Max, and that's his main problem.
And you know Max's calves are way better.

I agree with your point actually, but I'm not sure why you're attacking Tater. He didn't blame the players in any way.

I'm usually a uniformz h8er, but I actually liked those Maryland uniforms, not as their standard of course. It actually has some meaning to it since it's using the state flag, as opposed to basically anything Michigan has tried.
|1 week 14 hours ago||Maybe BTN International is||
Maybe BTN International is run differently, but it's been absolutely awful. Games aren't available when they should be. Replays often restart at every commercial break so before a commercial break you have to skip ahead, usually missing a few plays in the process. Some games just stopped part of the way through and I couldn't finish them. Every e-mail I sent to them got no reply, even though I sent respectful e-mails.
Having said that, I'll probably try again this year because it'd be a real lifesaver if it actually worked well. The annoying thing is when people complain about people like me "stealing" TV by watching streams online. I'm dying to give someone like ESPN my money for good content that doesn't make me stay up or wake up in the middle of the night watching low-quality streams.
