- Do we really need three tight ends in a class of maybe 16 total?
- This is an underwhelming list.
- Petit-Frere is an amazing name for a offensive linemen, but we would be obstructing cosmic destiny by blocking this kid from attending MSU.

Thanks for all the responses. Interesting. I've watched enough Beilein to understand that the lack of offensive rebounding is by design, choosing instead to get back on D quickly. But with defensive rebounding...
I can see how prioritizing stopping the 3 on defense would make you vulnerable to dribble penetration, which makes you vulnerable to offensive rebounds. Makes sense. Louisville was in the paint a ton today, but they only shot 5-20 from 3. Maybe that's the payoff for giving up so many second-chance points? The other payoff is having offensively talented, diverse big men--like someone said, there aren't many college PF/Cs like McGary who are skilled and thick.

I'm admittedly a fairweather basketball fan, so I haven't seen much of this team prior to the tournament. A question, though, for more avid followers:
Why are we so bad at rebounding on the defensive end? Are our big men just inept at boxing out? Are our big men physically overmatched? Does our defensive scheme put us in poor position to rebound missed shots? With about five minutes to go today, Louisville had more offensive rebounds than we did defensive rebounds--unthinkable based on my experience. OSU accomplished the same feat for the duration of the game Friday. What gives?
If we could rebound at just at average rate on the defensive end, we would be a juggernaut.

Hate to log on just to complain about the refs. But what a goddam screw job. Unbelievable.

OSU rebounded more missed OSU shots than Michigan did. How can that happen?

Westworld is the best show i've seen in years. I almost wish they'd just end it after this first season and not make any more. I'm almost certain I'm going to be disappointed with where they go from here.

The Iowa game was the only truly egregious waste of our considerable talent. But the underperformance in the game definitely was immense.

The player card for James Conner of Pitt at that link lists him at 3'1" and 233 pounds. Redefining a bowling ball running back I guess. Good luck young man!
We haven't seen that kind of height-weight ratio since Ron Dayne!

They had Tyjon Lindsay (top Nevada player last cycle) committed until about a month ago, too. Weirdly decommited and switched to Nebraska.

Ohio State owned Bishop Gorman this past recruiting cycle and have the upper hand (based on ballz and such) on most of the rop Nevada kids again this time around. We should be happy to just get the QB.

Ah, damn. I've always really liked you as a poster here. This is why politics on MGoBlog can be a bummer.

Good point; I suspect most of the services underweight the 20th - 30th guys when calculating their overall team rankings.

Seems like we're not in the driver's seat for many top 2018 recruits at this stage compared to the past couple of years. Hope I'm wrong. It seems like after two successful years under Harbaugh, top guys would be signing up?

Why didn't he finish the season and why do you think he's done with football?

Roger is keenly aware of tennis history and his place in it. I think he's hung around as long as he has to protect and add to his records. He might see himself as far enough ahead now.

Most athletic and mentally toughest. The latter has made the difference in most of these matches.

Regarding competition, you could say the same about Roger's first few years when he won most his majors. Rafa is the one who has never ruled alone, always faced with Fed or Djokovic at their full powers.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||It was over when Rafa broke||
It was over when Rafa broke in the 4th. Roger has been in a psychological shell against Rafa and Djokovic for almost ten years.
The irony is that had Fed made this final and lost to anyone else, it would've been a huge success for him coming off his injury. As is, I could see him retiring soon. This is going to kill Roger's mental game.
