This. But, given where he ended up being drafted, I think I would have told him to go pro even without all the NCAA suspension stuff. He is in a great situation at OKC and was taken reasonably high at 21.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Out of curiousity, how many||
Out of curiousity, how many of the 4s that played in the big ten were 4+ inches taller than him. The twolves list him at 6-7 and 211 (we listed him at 6-6 / 220). Even if that 6-7 is slightly exaggerated, I'm sure other 4s he played against him were similarly over-exaggerated.

I hate duke. A lot. Just pointing out people may have reasons for picking them. We will get ours and we will be good with coach b at the helm.

I know now is the time to get in jabs against duke but they did win a national title in 2010 and an elite 8 after that too I think. I realize that they have dropped a couple first round games is big upsets but just pointing out that it's not like they haven't had any tournament success in recent memory.

To be fair, Colton Christian off the top of my head was a similar pickup and didn't pan out. Not saying that that has any bearing here, but I think it's always good to manage expectations slightly. My expectations are roughly 5 minutes a game of high intensity defense to relieve caris.

anybody have any clues as to what sam webb was referring to?

I could somewhat justify it if espn needed to break these stories in this way for them

What benefit is gained from espn leaking the story? It's not like they are breaking news on a political scandal...they are ruining the kids opportunity to break news on the biggest decision of his life. Espn is a big enough entity where they shouldn't feel they need to get in a pissing match about breaking a draft declaration story. Is there not supposed to be any judgement or discretion involved on their end?

This...of all the things to be worries about, 3pt shooting isn't really one of them.

I will be pleasantly surprised if that happens.

If anyone is having a change of heart. I'm looking to buy 2 of the 45$ tickets.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||They beat Arizona in the game||
They beat Arizona in the game before. It's not like they beat a chump. Give credit where it is due.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||Why do we hate uconn that||
Why do we hate uconn that much? Their coach Ollie seems reasonable. They beat Sparty. I absolutely despise calipari so I really have no problem rooting for uconn.

Granted it was heat of the moment but Dekker and frank the tank said they are coming back next year with confidence.

Free throws helped Wisconsin a lot.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||Only things that have been||
Only things that have been able to help me is that Wisconsin split with us this year and despite some shoddy reffing we could have lost in the Tennessee game.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||I don't hear of many other||
I don't hear of many other teams doing this. Is that because of budget issues? Or they elect to stay local for their practices.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||I was mostly kidding. I'm||
I was mostly kidding. I'm actually of the mindset they will do great with whatever they choose and they shouldn't look back and be happy with their choices, whatever that ends up being.

If they go pro, they can buy their own trips and probably stay in nicer places haha.

You haven't missed much, if anything thus far.

@nickbaumgardner: 1st O (as of now): LT Cole, LG Bosch, C Miller, RG Kalis, RT Braden, QB Gardner, WRs Funchess/Canteen/Norfleet, RB Green, TE Williams

That's not true. It was announced during the decision that they were going there. You may dislike him but that isn't really a reason to "hate" him.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||Look at their rosters...who||
Look at their rosters...who was lbjs pippen? Mo Williams? Don't act like they had the same rosters, you can't blame him that the roster assembled around him was crap. Do you nullify Kobe's titles because they involved trades to get shaq and gasol. He didn't "build" the team in house.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||Do you not think there has||
Do you not think there has been any changes in nutrition and workout regimens in the past decade-plus?
|29 weeks 5 days ago||Are you seriously arguing||
Are you seriously arguing that his body transformation over the last 14 years could not have happened without ped?? That's pretty ridiculous. Look at the weight gains by our own players like caris and stauskas and that was over 1 summer in college. Come on.

Griii is a fringe 1st-2nd rounder, which is not far off from where thjr was when he declared. Thjr worked his way into the 1st round firmly in workouts. There is no reason to believe griii couldn't do the same thing.

I haven't seen a single person who is opposed to him transferring here.

A couple thoughts.
Our offensive line was likely one the worst in michigan history while our corners were not. From that line, we lost our 2 best players. We didn't lose any corners and have good depth at that position with or without peppers. Lindsay has played well at the collegiate level for a very dominant alabama program and while peppers by all accounts is the real deal, he has not played a collegiate snap yet.
I echo your sentiments, in some ways, because I think Lindsay improves not only his spot on the line but then makes another spot stronger because I think glasgow beats out a guard.
