Mostly a shot in the dark, but I know he spend lots of years in Cleveland... just curious?
|1 week 6 days ago||No gerund jokes?||
In the post? I'm surprised. I think Channing needs a gerund related nickname.

There's a Detroit-based (soon to be Ann Arbor-based) startup that built an app and website that peruses your spending history and tells you what card would be best for you.
Beyond that, every time you're about to make a payment, it will tell you which of your pre-entered credit cards will maximize your rewards.
Disclosure... a good friend is one of the co-founders. But seriously, I highly recommend, and so have Fortune, Tech Crunch, etc.

that's a great line. But let's hope we don't read it next week.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||3 year starter CB||
In the late 90s if memory serves. He's from and coaches at Bolingbrook IL. 35-40 ish miles outside chicago.

I seem to remember a game... last week that he carried against a pretty good team...

Great thing about basketball is that you get to play em twice
|15 weeks 20 hours ago||Any refs out there? - when a shot goes up...||
Re: the Ravenel goaltend... when a shot goes up, what do the refs look at? I think the priority is to watch what's going on under the basket rather than actually watching the ball and the hoop.
That being said, there are 3 of them in college, is one of them (maybe the one in the backcourt?) supposed to watch the hoop while the other two focus on contact between players?
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Opponent's Center?||
This is really cool, great work.
I wonder if Morgan is more frequently going up against an opponent's top center while McGary might be playing against a backup more often. Could be a part of the difference - i.e., Morgan is 'less better' than the top center and McGary is 'more better' than the backups?
|17 weeks 5 days ago||What if Denard knew?||
WHAT IF DENARD THREW ALL THOSE INTERCEPTIONS TO MAKE SURE MANTI BECAME EXTRA FAMOUS BECAUSE HE KNEW THE TRUTH AND WANTED IT TO BE EXPOSED
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Love these posts||
Keep em coming!
I know little about football Xs and Os and learn a ton from this blog/comments. I know more about hoops and love the opportunity to chime in a little here!
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Setting up the screen||
Part of the reason #15 (guarding Burke) fights over the screen well is that Burks didn't do enough to set it up. In a perfect world, Burke & McGary should rub shoulders when Burke passes the screen, not allowing any room for the defender to fight through. It's basically impossible to get this to happen, but there are a few feet between Burke & McGary when Burke goes around the screen. If Burke takes another dribble toward the hoop before he dribbles left around the screen, #15 will have a harder time fighting over McGary.
Setting up the screen falls more to Burke than the screener because the screener can't be moving as long (or else it's a foul). So the dribbler needs to be work toward the hoop (in this case) before taking a sharp angle past the shoulder of the screener to optimize the chances for the dribbler to get a shot off.
That being said, Burke getting a shot off is only one option - on this play, Burke seems to be thinking #1 look for Stauskas's cut and #2 wait for the re-screen.
Just my two cents, I love how the offense has many layers and Burke et al work through them and find great shots.

|1 year 14 weeks ago||Bill Albert to Hillsdale fwiw||
not too relevant, but since he was mentioned figured I'd post...
reason I heard is that he's from my hometown.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Other hotbeds?||
I don't know much about HS softball, but am curious what the other two hotbeds of softball talent are (with SoCal being one).
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Darboh, Chesson & Braden||
Darboh and Chesson because of their incredible stories.
Braden because he was first (I think?)
|1 year 19 weeks ago||U-M vs CMU 2 games prior to that...||
that was my freshman year, when I was one of what seemed like 12 season-ticket holders. The low point to me was the game vs Central Mich that made us 0-5. Chris Kaman had 30 pts and 21 rbs and their PF had 28 and 9.
That freshman class (Horton, Brown, Abram, Hunter) may never have quite met expectations but I think really moved the program along from a super low point...
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Awesome name - Dee Liner||
There's a DT named Dee Liner (#17 overall) - that's amazing
