Haha it's a leap! But you can't see Glenn Robinson III being a throw-in in a potential Kevin Love for Andrew Wiggins deal? That trade will probably have like 7 pieces (players or picks), and a second round salary with first round potential might be interesting for the Cavs. The TWolves roster at 2/3 might get crowded if they end up with LaVine, Shabazz, Wiggins, and whoever else.
I do agree though. The only correct answer here is Mitch McGary, because he's the only guy currently playing for a contender.

Love to Cavs for Wiggins. Plus others. One of those others is GRIII who gets a chance to make the Cavs roster and provide bench athleticism while developing into a rotation contributor on a championship team.
|2 hours 32 min ago||Good point||
Good point. That's what I do. I bubble often and that's my big game treatment.
|2 hours 41 min ago||I've been there||
Let him find out. It's on DVR and he'll catch the trends in the game where he'll eventually start fast forwarding and maybe even abandon if it doesn't change. Or he'll check his phone when it's a lot to a little for the outcome and decide to watch the comeback knowing the outcome, or continue the misery. On the other hand, he could also just love watching the sport.
Either way - let him find out the way he planned. He knows losing is a possibility. I've been there. It's insult to injury when you find out your team got blown out when you didn't want to know the outcome in the first place.
|7 hours 56 min ago||Is he?||
Not trying to be a dick. Actually wondering why you think he's a great asset to the beat. This Q&A comes across as answers from a guy whose job is to follow the team. There's nothing wrong with that. But does Quinn have basketball credentials or depth in knowledge? I'm much more impressed by anything over at UMhoops.com, but I'll take hoops coverage where I can get it.

"Fisher is running a nice, clean program down there." I get that his players have been twice arrested for non-violent (petty?) crimes but isn't this a leap? Fisher might be a dirty coach, but you can't possibly expect him to be responsible for the actions for all 85 guys at every moment. This kid screwed up and was suspended.

I appreciate you. You are much better than this blog perceives you as, even if you're not perfect as an AD.

1. MSU - conference game against little bro, who's owned us lately. Need to shift perception back to "normal"
|1 week 2 days ago||MSU||
Seems like they're in the bridesmaid phase of building a program. UMHoops had it with near misses on Lubick, every Plumlee and Prather before landing our first big fish in McGary (not counting the late risers here). They've been turning the heads of a lot of top recruits. Another good season and who knows? Needless to say, we need to have a positive year on the field.

Nobody wanted to do that. Nik was probably cringing on the other side of the phone.
|1 week 6 days ago||Bias||
Granted I'm biased...but I though that Greece thoroughly outplayed Costa Rica with the exception of a slow motion sidewinding goal in in the 60th minute.
Either way -- the team that wins is the team that wins. Deserving it doesn't have anything it do with the outcome. Congrats to the Costa Ricans.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. The Spurs have a vision and it wins championships. They basically drafted Boris Diaw -- who is a free agent. I would laugh at Anderson to any other team, but he fits what the Spurs want perfectly.
Unfortunate for Glenn. This is a very deep draft and he knew that when he entered. He'll hear his name soon and it's up to him to earn his spot.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Extensions||
Potentially three first rounders. A chance at a fourth draftee. They're going to be talking a lot about Michigan tonight. The extensions for our assistants has been in the works for a couple of weeks. I applaud the tactical decision to release the news tonight. High schoolers will hear something like this:
"OKC takes Mitch McGary at #29. That's the third first rounder from Michigan, and the fifth in the last two years. Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. being the other two - fresh off successful rookie seasons that placed them on the All-Rookie Team. Tremendous talent development up there at UofM, and they've rewarded their assitant coaches with contract extensions through 2018."

Is the field flooded too? Not literally, but how wet/muddy are we talking?

Hoping for a Greek victory, but you can't win without scoring a goal soo....
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Basketball||
I'd be very surprised if he didn't pursue a pro career in Europe. Like stu and Zack, his resume is already impressive enough to open doors in the USA. Might as well play while you can (and save up to avoid medical debt).
|3 weeks 3 hours ago||Kam||
Re: Kam. I don't think he can be shorter than his measured 6'8". That's measured at Jordan, and the NBA camps. While it might be a tad exagerrated (i.e. was it with shoes? Did they add the basketball player phantom inch?), his listed 6"8 is consistent with the other top prospects and whatever they're listed at. The fact that he looks tiny here is encouraging that DJ and Doyle are legitimately taller than 6'10"
I like it.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||No responsibility||
He's got all day to do whatever he wants. I'm sure he goes to the gym and is social. But all day leaves a lot of extra time for mind melting video games...or a Michigan obsession. It's the age of technology.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||This season||
Also adds to how important this season is for our coaches. I want Hoke to get two years regardless, but we need >8 wins and a good looking team. Otherwise, job security questions could cause any recruit - especially those who commit to our coaches and "loved" MSU - to get wandering eyes.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||My brother||
My brother is a huge MSU fan. He once got steaming mad because I called MSU "Sparty," even though ESPN does it all the time, and it's the name of their mascot.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Seatbelt Warning?||
I just got thrown across the aisle into the lap of a pretty woman. I was not ready for this at all. This is a rare ocassion where the informative update will tell me a ton of stuff that I don't already know. I've heard his name, but looking forward to learning more about him.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Has to?||
No he doesn't have to at all. But that doesn't mean he doesn't anyway. He'll always be a slimeball.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Morris, Harris, Chatman,||
Morris, Harris, Chatman, Sims, and Horford.
Morris is a pass-first point guard. While he didn't mesh with Harris as a Freshman, he didn't go into his cuccoon yet (sorry). I think he fits with scoring Manny in the backcourt. Chatman is supposedly a do-everything playmaker at the three. I like Sims and his ability to stretch at 4. He played a lot of center so he can bang if needed. Horford is all I need at center. He's a good shot-blocker, a good rebounder, and has an OK back to the basket game. I could slide this entire lineup up a slot if he got into foul trouble and I was forced to play Andrew Dakich. This lineup has tons of size and talent. Maybe not enough shooting, though.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Manny||
Is it fair to call Manny a ball hog? Dude had a triple double once and has solid all around numbers despite playing with mostly scrubs - no offense. Sims was the only real Big Ten player, though Novak and Douglass later proved it.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Hmm||
I didn't consider that. I guess it's possible, but it's the job of a coach or close friend to market a player. He's more than a fan trying to help with M recruiting. He's a rep of the player trying to enhance his options.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||IMO||
In my opinion, you should send the coaches a package. He's a 2017 with buzz so I wouldn't be surprised if they found him sooner than later - can't possibly ID everybody. But I know that coaches often send a highlight package to programs to get their player some eyes.
|5 weeks 3 hours ago||Harris||
Oh well, can't get them all. Michigan will be fine. As for MSU - did anyone actually expect them to fall off the map? They're gonna continue to get talent. Our best will just have to beat their best.
|5 weeks 5 hours ago||Darius Morris||
He was a consensus 4 star. Not a Kentucky, UNC, Kansas offer set but he was pursued by some very good programs. Maybe more but he was an early commit. Definitely not lightly recruited and I personally had very high expectations for him. The first "big" recruit Beilein grabbed.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Dude you're crazy||
You're way off. How could they call Morris new but steady without any significant PT? He'd be new but promising.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Ahrens||
I agree with you that he could be a thorn in our side, but Michigan cannot possibly take them all. I feel comfortable with the guys we're pursuing and I'd rather see MSU pick up an Ahrens than a Brunson (not that they can't have both).
