I caught that game and their youth really showed. Miscommunications all over the park killed their combinations and gave them fits going forward.
Frankly, I don't love the 4-3-3 for this side. It forces James Murphy to play too far back and relies on the young center forward as a target too much. As much as Daley hyped his strength in this convo, he is a short guy and had a lot of trouble holding off FIU's center backs.
Then again, it was just one game from a true frosh, so hopefully things turn around. I would love for them to make another run this year.

I disagree that it was "never about the system". Horford wanted more post touches, and Beilein really isn't interested in giving it to him. All year he would post up and yell for the ball to the point where it was audible over the TV broadcast. He would get a touch like 25% of the time he had position.
He obviously has a turnaround jumper in the post that he likes that we saw a few times this year. It's a finesse move that has fallen out of favor largely the way the game is being played today and especially under Beilein. He probably saw Patric Young getting 5-6 post touches a game and wanted a piece of that action. If that's who he thinks he is, I can't blame him for going for it. I don't necessarily agree but time will tell.

To be fair, Delvon Roe was hampered by a pretty nasty knee injury. I'm no fan of his, but he didn't exactly get a fair shot at fully developing his game.

No doubt. All I could think about watching the IU game was how bad Mitch would tear up that gimmicky scheme Crean was using.

For the most part I agree. He called out Glenn for dogging it back on D, which was long overdue. I just find some of his rants about effort level to be overly simplistic.

You've been listening to too much Dakitch. "When you're sick of losing, you win"

I'd like to see us move Glenn from the corner to the short corner on PnR plays. Have him drift up to the high post as Morford rolls past. It's what we always did in HS and it seems a bit harder to guard than 3 stationary guys on the perimeter, especially with Glenn hitting 25% from 3. Makes the help such an easy decision for GR3's guy. He'd be much more of a threat from the top of the key/high post than the corner.

According to an email from the athletic department, bleachers, section 130, and 132 are available to the students in the lower bowl. I've never heard of Sec 132 before, is that where the band normally is? Is it possible that the dept gave up the band in order to avoid turning students away who wanted to claim tickets?

My friend who plays for Sparty got one of those chairs from the BWW bowl last year. Greatest chair I've ever sat in.

Any idea what his committment means for OL numbers for the rest of the 2016 class? I understand that it's a long way off and all but I've known Thiyo Ludkusa since he was a (relatively) little guy and I'd love to see him get an offer.

He did save Skyler with the last phone call. So, I mean, that's something right?

I hear you. I personally choose to support Americans playing in the EPL, much like I cheer for Michigan players in the NFL. That makes Sunderland the club du jour for me this year, with their addition of Jozy.
Additionally, Tim Howard will remain with Everton, but his starting spot is being threatened some feel. The club signed Spanish GK Joel Robles to challenge or perhaps replace Tim.
Stoke City has an American owner, who has signed the American trio of Geoff Cameron, Maurice Edu, and Brek Shea, with Juan Aguedlo also scheduled to enter the fold in the winter transfer window.
Can't wait for the season to start, and I very much look forward to every game being televised.

Yea Juve isn't in the EPL. Also, I hate seeing Michigan associated with Liverpool and by extension Suarez. Dude's a scumbag.

The drill where he's throwing the ball back and forth with his coach between combo moves is called the "Nash Drill" at my practices. It is about 40x harder than it looks and he was unbelievably smooth. Big wow experience watching that.

Mexico is also using a B squad, but that didn't seem to make them feel any better about losing to Panama last night. The US is allowed to call in players after the group stage, but only a certian (like 5-8 I think) number. This is an option Klinsmann has seemed to imply he will exercise, but hasn't mentioned who. Many EPL players are just beginning to report to thier clubs or enjoy the last of the very short offseason, so players like Jozy and Dempsey are almost certainly ruled out.

Speaking of which, has anyone seen part 1 anywhere on the internets? I can't seem to find it.

Mike and I have some mutual friends and he's a great guy. His older brother actually is already at Michigan. Both of them are great athletes and very nice guys.

Courtney Sims played center for Tommy Amaker, Dion Sims played tight end for Sparty. That said, great work and an interesting read.

The idea of him moving to the 3 scares me a bit. Our strength next year will be at the wing, so why not pack as many of them on the floor as possible? I just doesn't make sense.

What's the crowd like? Were tickets hard to come by, could they be bought before the game at the gate? I'm thinking of going tomorrow and I don't really know what to expect.

I am not at all claiming that. But from my own basketball experience and talking about it with friends from State, it's not a good system. It's a shitty experience waiting in line, getting cut by drunk kids who show up after you, and having everyone try to squeeze their friends in. Having a few empty rows up top may not be pretty to look at but the current system is what's best for my viewing experience. Which is what actually matters to me.

That's just not true. Before the Ohio State basketball game there was damn near a riot to get in the gates. That was for basketball. An hour and a half before tip. This will be chaos.
