Hoke didn't waste Funchess. Injuries wasted Funchess.
Also if you don't go out of your way to be an asshole to a college athlete, then you don't have to say you're sorry when you find out he struggled for a valid reason.

Exactly. Let's say a team goes for two at the end of the game and ties it up. If they want to try the Hail Mary to win it, there needs to be some drawback to doing that, like if the other team intercepts it and runs it back that counts for a point as well, and they could lose.

Are you suggesting that recruits are getting paid and/or benefits to go to UK? I think they go because they know they'll be on a highly competitive team, and good a real close look by NBA scouts. Plus the tradition, facilities, and resources. I'd have to look hard at Kentucky if I were a top recruit.

I really can't see Harbaugh beating Urban consistently enough that Urban leaves. The rivalry will be up and down. Michigan will win some and OSU will win some. They are both pretty damned good coaches, and as much as I love Harbaugh, I doubt he beats OSU enough that Urban calls it quits.

I had to make sure the Tigers were winning before I laughed at this. They're winning 12-2, so I'm laughing, even though I don't recognize a single name on that Phillies lineup card.
|4 weeks 8 hours ago||It's always better to have||
I'd always rather have the key guys out there at the end of the game. Plus, the game wasn't out of hand at the end of the first anyway. The Kenpom % Ace sites is intersting. He says the percentage went down, but the next sentence states Michigan did pull within three in the second half, effectively bringing that % back up. I'd much rather be within three points in the second half than within 10 or so at the end of the first, when you have the whole second half to get back into it. If you go down by double digits late in the second the % is often insurmountable. If Beilein is forced to play the walk-ons for a long spell in the second half as opposed to the end of the first that Kenpom most likely is going to be even worse than it was at half time. It's playing the percentages and Beilein made the right call.
|4 weeks 21 hours ago||This two foul argument is so||
This two foul argument is so strange. It's always smart to sit your key players after they pick up two fouls in the first half. If they get a third foul before half, and then happen to get a fourth early in the second half, then you're essentially forced to play roulette with your team for the rest of the game.
You want your best guys on the court for the majority of the final ten minutes of the second half, when the highest percentage of games are won or lost. Managing the rotation so your key guys have at most two fouls going into halftime is the best way to ensure they'll be out there for the final ten. It's just sound basketball. That's why the majority of coaches do it.
Just because MAAR and Irvin didn't happen to get into foul trouble doesn't mean it was the incorrect play. It could have also easily gone the other way, especially with young players, and all of a sudden you've got one or two important guys with 4 fouls early in the second half of a close game, and you're forced to play guys with less skill and experience to try and close out. Most of the time that doesn't go well.

No doubt. The coaching is fine. I'd rather have those guys not in foul trouble in the second half.

Dakich is truly terrible at announcing. I always give him a chance and end up muting it anyway. Team is playing tough on the road so far.

Really? That's intersting. For me, Dakich is far and away the worst college basketball announcer. Even Vitale is better.
