But damn if McGary doesn't remind me a bit of a bigger Dave Cowens with less shooting touch.

What is fandom at it's core?
You who have suffered through the last Carr years and RR and now you are blasting the Coach for providing coach speak to a ridiculous question? Are you having an existential crisis? What the hell? Why am I using some many question marks?
Step away from your advanced metrics, your statistics, your insufferably high intelligence and just be a fan. Or eat a cookie - you'll feel better.

Should have a photoshop contest to superimpose the face of the most deserving coach/player.

Brought back ugly flashbacks from the Indiana game - thanks coach :>)
Nice film - looks like he's still growing into his body.

has plenty of arm. Reminds me a bit of Drew Henson. Not as polished as some of the other prospects, but talent and athleticism are off the charts.

The Dogfish IPA lineup is the best out there I've personally tried, but there's a lot of brewries (and apparently customers) out there who don't seem to understand that the key to a good beer is balance.
That said, and in conjunction with your comments, there's some impressive IPAs out there; unfortunately, I've yet to find a really good Czech style pils from a microbrewery - If anyone knows of one, please let me know.

This is the kid I wanted to see in this class. He brings some skills (ball handling, passing, rebounding) that are very complimentary to what the other wings/3's on the roster provide. He's a player who can contribute meaningfully early without getting a high amount of usage/touches.
Even without McGary and GRIII next year, should have a very balanced and talented roster.

that defensive lineman are like Cheesemakers.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Speed not an Issue IMO||
Granted that Mone doesn't appear to be a quick twitch athlete like Pipkins or Hurst Jr., but can't expect a DT to chase down a dual threat QB inside out. There was absolutely no contain from the defensive ends on any of the plays he got penetration. Once Baez got outside of the tackle box, it was all over.
Also, not like he was rushing against John Navarre; the kid could move.
|12 weeks 17 hours ago||Wow||
Tom Hammond, Munch, Lord Byron and The Shining all thematically tied together. I salute you sir.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Boo Seth!||
Your plan smacks too much of incentive clauses in an NFL contract. Boo boo boo, with a hearty Bronx cheer thrown in. The selection process shouldn't necessairly be results-based, or even rational in some circumstances.
For instance, you may have a walk-on who is a great team leader, exemplifies everything the program and school stands for and only gets garbage minutes. For me, depending on the situation, I think awarding them with the jersey would be a huge honor and the team would likely feel the same way.
Bottom line- if the kids buy in that being offered to wear the jersey is a special honor (and it continues to go to worthwhile players), it will be successful a la the Nebraska Blackshirt concept.

And I must say to be fair, the video from elevenwarriors was an excellent addition.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Dammit||
The whole even sounds like heaven. My favorite beers are Czech lagers. I'll look to donate some money though.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Well....||
Webb could be a boundary corner, but different players. Webb has more length and may end up on offense (Crawford could play slot, but it ain't happening). Crawford may be the most instinctive and disciplined corner UM has recruited since I can remember (Countess is close, but more of a field corner and not nearly as physical). Even when he get's caught slightly out of position technique-wise, he's intelligent and disciplined enought to pull up and has the athleticism to make the play. And he can flat out bring the wood.
He dropped a bit in rankings during the camp season, but the gameday film doesn't lie.
Fantasitic pick-up by the staff.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||Tend to||
Agree with you. Thing which stuck out to me other than his coverage skills was his edge containment which was very good. Could play will as well, but think he's a more natural sam assuming he can get bigger and stronger.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks for the early morning fix Seth||
Believe Jack Wangler is coming in as a wide receiver though.

Question.....Is this the return of the "F" Lion??? If so, also lends credence to the '80s song 'Detachable Penis'.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||Other than||
Other than Booker and Looney (whose probably a long shot), I like Chatman the best of the '14 prospects. Kid has a lot of tools he brings to the table.
Brian, you didn't mention Brunson, whose getting a really hard look in the '15 class at PG.
Also, Zimmerman is the truth!

While midshipmen are technically in the Navy, they don't get a commission until they graduate from Annapolis. Sounds like his brother is torn between Navy or Marine Corps.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||One of those blogs||
where the comments are at least as funny as the posts - well done.
|30 weeks 6 days ago||Love the Depth||
With exception of QB and possibly TE, solid quality depth all over the place.

You have obviously never been to Syracusa, Sicilia, Italia. There's nothing but orange and lemon groves down there. I'd be hard pressed to believe that it isn't a carry over from Italian immigrants from that region, wikipedia be damned.
|36 weeks 1 day ago||The reason Siva had crappy games against SU||
is that he's one of the more overrated players in the Big East. He's a decent facilitator, but relies on others to get production. I would compare him to Florida's backcourt in that he gets a lot out of his talent, but he's not in the same solar system as Burke.
Burke will get his shots off (Siva couldn't shoot an NBA three if you held a gun to his head); question is whether he can be effecient and facilitate.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||Really fine piece||
The only UM thing that comes to mind as comparable was Woodson's performance in The Game his last year. You're right: he just wanted it more than Kansas.
|38 weeks 3 days ago||Take it to the rim!!!||
If UM doesn't settle and closes out on defense half decently, they win this game comfortably. They have several players in this match-up who can get to the rim and SDSU still has to respect the outside shot for Hardaway and Stauskas.
There's noone on that roster who can guard Burke one on one or in a high ball screen situation. I think Burke will either have 16 points by halftime or 8 assists. If he doesn't, the rest of the team didn't get off the bus.
Run your sets; don't settle; close out.

Seems like a really good kid. Would be hard to root against him if he goes to the dark side.
Ace, do you know if Deshawn Hand is a military brat - get a lot of those in Northern VA, and he seems to follow the stereotype.
|38 weeks 6 days ago||GRIII||
They switched him onto Borovnjak in the second half and he did pretty well. Don't know his rebounding, but had a least 3 steals that I counted and kept him out of the lane.
|39 weeks 2 days ago||Looked like||
Camp or AAU competition. Frankly, of all the film I've seen on UM big recruits, other than McGary, this kid has the most upside. Great understanding of floor space and angles and knows how to get a shot off.
That said, no film of him passing out of a double or having to go against a Nerlens Noel type player (which McGary did), nor did they show him running the court. Definitely has some really good instincts and fundamentals around the hoop.
|40 weeks 2 days ago||Stauskas||
Brian - the referees got it right. The new rule is a pile of dung, but hoops is a game where you're going to get some cuts. I had a broken nose, a set of loosened teeth, and four separate sets of stiches before I was 20 playing hoops. It happens.
