Then if that's the case, the fan base should be content with being a fringe top 25 team and quit freaking out when top programs that are OK with "doing what it takes" curb stomp them.
And just to be clear, our new AD comes from a school known for "doing what it takes" to win in basketball. So like I said, we're at a crossroads.

This is true, and that's why I through the "roughly" in there. Sure, they are much better than the hot garbage of Ellerbe, or lukewarm garbage of Amaker, but they are currently playing somewhere between lukewarm garbage and mid tier Big Ten program. Which I don't think anyone is happy with.
Which goes to my last point. Michigan bball -- much like Michigan football -- needs to decide what it wants to be. The football program clearly views itself as a perennial top 10 program and went out and made the changes to get back to that point.
I have no idea what the basketball program wants to be or how they view themselves. None at all. Hackett is smart and likely knows what it really takes ($$$$) to win in basketball. Manuel is coming from UConn and definitely knows what it takes. So as those two transition in/out it'll be interesting to see what happens with the basketball program.
Michigan fans have been a little squeamish at some of the things Harbaugh is having to do to compete for real in CFB. To really compete in CBB, it'll have to get a whole lot more shady. Just need to decide if that's worth it.

What they were for 20 years is roughly what they are now and poised to be in the future.

No, San Diego is right. You can sign a max of 25 per class. That can only go up through greyshirts and back dating early enrollees. So as long as the back dating 7 of the 29 commits from this crop number is accurate, that means we have 22 commits assigned to the 2016 class. Back dating 3 2017 EE commits gets that back to 25 for 2016 and let's you sign 3 additional for 2017.

Because we are a fickle fan base with many options for our coverage.

Thank you for your concern. I will print out your advice and carry it in my wallet and will cherish it always.
I may even laminate it.

It's nice that you acknowledge that you're a crazy person though. The first step is acceptance.

I don't even understand how or why this is bullshit. Its bullshit that he's down to two teams? That's neither good news or bad news, and it sure as hell isn't bullshit.

Wouldn't surprise me if WD had 20 different accounts. I mean really, who the hell is voting up his first comment 30 times?

I mean honestly, how much more head-up-your-own-ass do you have to be to say "I've seen nothing concrete" when there is a link to a goddamn article with concrete quotes from his mom who lays out the process they used to get down to two??

Since he just went to Clemson and according to feedback from the family that visit went much better than they thought it would, I'd feel a lot better if the two schools were Michigan and anyone but Clemson.
|5 days 5 hours ago||How about read the article?||
How about you read the article, dummy? Tom talked to Gary's mom who said they were down to two. Doesn't get much more concrete than that.

Pretty sure he is just releasing some recruiting videos. He mentioned that was coming the week of signing day at some point in the last week or two.
Scale back (or up) your excitement accordingly.

In the words of Carr, if Michigan can land a Boss and a McDoom in that class, that would be tremendous.

True. Just saying don't underestimate Clemson. Just as shady as Ole Miss, Auburn, or anyone else.

Be wary the Clemson bagman. Remember Artavis Scott's sudden change of heart?
|1 week 4 days ago||True||
True. He's probably getting more than Shaq. Damn inflation.

But, Ben Simmons was a totally legit recruitment, right?

I'd say to most young athletes, hot women (Ole Miss) would trump academics 9 times out of 10. Especially when you consider the academics of Stanford put it out of reach for most people let alone most athletes.

Not before 2010 though. Before that, they were very Ole Miss like. Traditionally terrible with a fluky 9 win or even more fluky 10 win season once a decade.

I implore you to take a trip to Ole Miss and rethink that thought.

You acted like an asshole by telling someone to fuck off for questioning your response/tact and then hid that behavior under the umbrella of things that happened to loved ones. Which is also an asshole thing to do.

Just because you've had loved ones killed by cancer doesn't mean you're not an asshole.
