|1 day 3 hours ago||Oh my||
My kids are going to watch this one again and again. Thanks man, awesome!
|1 day 23 hours ago||Questions||
I saw Michigan when they played Stanford here last year. Awesome game and want to see them again.
However, I can't figure out the format on this one and what tickets to buy here. They have two dates and also say that there is some sort of "regional play in" the four teams "host". So questions:
Does anyone now which of the two days Michigan will play?
If Michigan loses at home, will it even come out to Brooklyn for the tournament?
Want to buy the tickets but nervous.
|1 day 23 hours ago||2 seed with chip on shoulder||
Best case scenario in my mind is we win the big ten tournament and get dissed such that it places massive chip on our team's shoulder in a way that drives them to a national championship win (which is so much fun for all of our nba players they stay and everyone gets free subs). Too much to ask?

was that little thing called losing Mitch McGary after the above prognastication was made. That seals it for me. JB should be given strong consideration for NCOY not just BT COY. Tim Miles too, but not more so than JB.

Has toughest decision. If I was his adviser I would tell him to go if he gets some assurances from teams in that 20 range.

Actually blamed having all of their guys back as the reason they played so poorly...saying they weren't used to playing with each other.

When we were done by only three with a ton of click left too?

You go 2-9 does not mean your soft. He definitely needs a more attacking mindset though to complement his skill set. The nba does not need a finesse player with his physique, size and game. He is explosive without the always on attitude to utilize his explosiveness. I would say he needs to be a bigger terror on d too if his offense is going to plateau where it's st. Otherwise, I am thinking second rounder. Still a big fan.

Is no longer the prospect you think he is. I hope he turns it around but he is not an nba player right now and the scoutniks are starting to see it. I am just hoping he gets to being a dominant d1 player. He can do it but it's not even close right now. I would say Irving 's scoring ability might have his projections exceed Robinson 's if current trends hold. Great kid.

Negative recruiting might technically be "unethical", but not against ncaa rules.

Life is short and we just beat a ranked rival on their home court. Nice victory...students have a few for me!
|4 weeks 4 days ago||This!||
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Um||
Let's beat Wisconsin first. One game at a time people!
|5 weeks 51 min ago||This guy is in his 50s or 60s||
He should not be allowed back into a NCAA game if he is dropping n bombs on kids. Not sure if that is shat he did but if that's the case they better protect the players too here.
|5 weeks 54 min ago||I would still have a problem with it||
I totally understand it but I have a problem with physically attacking some one vs dealing with it in a verbal way. Can you imagine if Smart had the wherewithal to grab an attendant and had the guy thrown out aka post pistons palace?
|5 weeks 58 min ago||Are you sure it was a racial epithet?||
I still think he should have handled it differently but that would change my outlook on it a bit.
|5 weeks 19 hours ago||I agree||
The only reason it was hard for me to listen to him today was that he was pretty much spot on.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Why is it||
All or nothing?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Love that he even lead||
The way in signing as early as he could. Dude is a game changer. Countess and Peppers on same field. Watch out.,,I bet our our d line will "all of the sudden get better" when no one can get open.

|5 weeks 5 days ago||Observations||
1. Did not understand the lack of back cuts from Stauskas and Robinson. Conley was good at the rim but the denial of our wings, particularly stauskas was begging for this.
|6 weeks 1 hour ago||BTW: Love me some Gilbert||
For everything he has done in Detroit...but I just think one would be hard pressed to assert that MSU produces these types of folks (and the corresponding opportunities folks like this create) nearly as much as UofM has....If you drill down into white collar and positions of power too...I would guess its not even close, no?
|6 weeks 1 hour ago||Umm..||
Not "trotting" anything out there...but the list for Michigan is light years longer and more prestigious, no?
Michigan has thousands of Gores and Gilberts, but MSU has really no one like the founders of Google, a President of the United States or the guy running Twitter (which, two of which, have basically revolutionized the internet and changed global culture).
Maybe I am too Maize-blind but it seems to me the accomplishments of UofM grads and the reach of the UofM alum base far exceeds that of MSU. And this fact, proves the point that a UofM degree opens more doors and opportunities, by far, than a MSU degree. And has been stated above, the farther you move away from the state, the more pronounced the difference becomes.
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||I work in NYC in a fortune 50 company||
There are literally hundreds of Michigan grads (and an internal UofM group) and you would be hard pressed to find a Spartan. Michigan grads do better and have a better chance than msu grads with similar degrees. Fact.
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||You are on crack||
I've looked at your posts throughout here and it seems to me MSU's Rose Bowl run has really left an impression on you. Great season, but your Rose Bowl run does not mean your students automatically become gifted and talented program candidates. It's okay though, msu admittedly has wonderful people (except when they seduced by their temporary success on the athletic field) and successful grads (in particular nurses, farmers, teachers, and packaging experts of which my relatives are legion)....but again...the schools academically are not in the same stratosphere.
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||Your response doesn't make sense||
Unless you are an msu related business located in Michigan or some msu alum, located who knows where...if an equivalent resume comes in the door, a super majority of employers would pick the michigan one. Same thing would happen if it were Harvard v Michigan. It's not a debate.
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||This second point is the relevant one||
Michigan undergrad is to Harvard undergrad, as msu's undergrad is to Michigan's undergrad. Big big difference. Now I can tell you that I would still hire a Spartan who was top in their class, a great fit and who could " overcome" their lack of a great undergrad school....AND I would avoid a social reject from an Ivy League school or Michigan if they underperformed their resume....but there is an advantage for a reason.
|6 weeks 12 hours ago||Don't let||
Some limited "guys I work with" examples get in the way of facts. I work with some folks from Ivy League schools, but I still get that their school, academically, was net net far better and that many of their colleagues are net net far more successful than most of my colleagues. That said our alums created Google, run Twitter right now and owns the Dolphins right now ( to name a few)...what has Sparty done lately? Comparing Michigan to Ivy League schools in this regard is a far better comparison than comparing msu with UofM. C'mon man.
|6 weeks 12 hours ago||Dude||
Unless you are an employer from mid michigan, a GS degree at UofM is probably better than any undergrad degree at msu.
