Of course he did. He went back in time and invented pizza. He then dreamed up Linux while eating the first pizza. So then he had to go foward in time (but not too far) and invent Linux. He then went forward in time enough to tweet Madonna.
Tomorrow he will invent football and styrofoam cups.

once you give it up you can't get it back
Yes, this is the whole point.
If you don't really like college, or you just came to college to kill time until the Pro's, then fine, leave as soon as you can.
Or if you think you only have one shot to make it big in the Pro's and that time is now, then fine, leave now. The college experience is great, but not great enough to miss out on the chance to make millions vs. thousands.
But if you like college and you can help your future draft status even a little by staying another year, then stay. Once you give it up you can't get it back.

Gotta feel sorry for Beilein. He doesn't do the One-and-Done's, but he always gets stuck with the Two-and-Thru's.
He takes all these marginal guys who don't have anything near the equivalent of a Michigan offer, developes them and builds them up, and then loses them right as they become productive.
He's like the poor guy at the bar who buys drinks and chats up the girl in the corner who's being ignored all night . . . and then she leaves with the drummer in the band.
|7 hours 59 min ago||Not really. A 30+ year old||
A 30+ year old ex NBA player with a wife and possibly even kids can't really recreate the college experience. They can get their degree off to the side, which is what a lot of them do, but they're not actually going "back to school".
Hell, I could go back to Michigan and take some classes, but it wouldn't be replicating the college experience. I'd just be some creeper around campus.
The college experience as a young person is a unique and highly underrated life experience. I would not trade mine for anything. But once it's over, it's over.

This is likely the real reason.

College is also a great experience, one you will never be able to replicate for the rest of your life.
At this point in my life, I can afford nice vacations, cars, house, etc. The stuff money can buy. What I can't do is replicate the college experience. What I wouldn't give to be able to go back in time for even one year of college.
So, if you know you are good enough to play in the NBA and get the big paycheck, why not stay in college an extra year? It's the last chance you'll ever get.

He was a douche, but he got it done when it counted. You have to tip your hat while at the same time hating him.

They are quantitatively different, but not qualitatively different. Meyer takes more out-of-state kids than Tressel did, but they both start by locking down their Ohio targets early, and then branching out from there. Meyer goes after a greater percentage of out of state kids, but he still has an Ohio core.
The Michigan "core" is a little different, it's necessarily distributed a little wider . . . MI, OH, PA, IL, and some NJ, MD/DC/VA . . . essentially the heart of Big Ten East country + Chicago area.
It will be interesting to see when Jim harbaugh starts fishing in these waters. He's not going to be able to make a class consisting of 70% CA and Southern kids.

I see very few midwest and northeast recruits. It's mostly 4/5-star guys from CA and the South.
Harbaugh is a confident man, but we're late to the party and we're competing with the local programs who happen to also be elite top-of-the-food-chain programs. We're in a lot of top 5's for these guys, but not in a lot of leader slots. As you siad, we're going to miss out on most of these guys.
At what point does Harbaugh move on to the guys more likely to actually commit to Michigan? Is that something that he feels can wait until summer or even the fall?
It's seems inside-out from the way Meyer and even Tressel did it, where they would solidify their core of local guys early and then branch out from there for the national 5-star type guys.

What's the story with the coverage of Nebraska? Are there ties to Nebraska, or was it just their turn to be analyzed?

When they lit up the Empire State building in red because Rutgres was in the NIT Final, I said to my wife: "That's going to get them in the Big Ten."

We should offer every Ohio State kid who is the child of a famous Buckeye, whether they are D1 material or not. Make Urban have to match our offers or take crap from the fanbase.

Plain and simple, it's fun to win tournaments.
When we won it in 2004, it was a blast, NIT or not.
