You do realize that Payne is 15 months older than McGary. I state this because Payne will be the "older" dude in this draft and as far as I can tell that is certainly NOT hurting his draft position. Payne was born in February 1991. Heck he is 23 already!!!
Yes, if McGary comes back, he will just turn 23 at the draft next year. But in the end, if he is healthy and returns to his potential, he is a lock for a lottery pick. Especially given the notion that next years draft is a "downer"......
|20 weeks 6 days ago||On BTN "The Journey"||
I believe this this was on the BTN show "The Journey" earlier this year. Just shows how little we truly know about the players we watch and that we should always pause before saying something about them.
Yes, Adrian Payne has a soft spot for a true hero fighting every day. It will be nice to cheer for him in about 6-7 weeks (well, actually 3 becasue I think State is going to flame out in the NCAA, but that is for another thread.......)
EDIT: Beaten to this. But the sentiment is the same. Very hard to show vengence to someone who "gets it".

Remember Nebraska last year? That essentially cost Michigan the Division title. There will come a point somewhere in the season that Morris will have to step in a meaningful game at a meaningful drive and not look like a deer in headlights.
We all saw in its grand glory what happens once a Defense (even a very average one) figures out the a QB is no threat to the offensive game plan. At minimum, Morris needs to be able to make the basic throws (Fades, Hitches, Square Outs, Bubble Screen...oh wait) in the heat of a game to force a Defense to be honest. Even if he only plays 2 or 3 meaningful series through out the whole year. It will be important.
*****Of course I am more than content to see Morris only in 3 of the first 4 games collecting about 6 quarters of experience (the 2nd half of each cupcake game). Effectively handing the ball off to whoever and making the occasional throw. Then moth ball him for the balance of the year.*******

But NW has us, MSU and OSU at home. And yes they did beat Neb 2 year ago. I also account for the fact that Neb as like only 3 returning starters on D. Yes T-Mart is coming back and their O is good, but NW contained it each of the last 2 years.
Neb D will not be good, not under any circumstances, especially against an experienced and explosive O like NW.
Keep in mind that while Neb did win against NW last year. It was a freak series of plays in the 4th quarter that allowed Neb to pull one out of their you know what. So, yes, I am confident that Pat will the Purple Swarm ready for Neb even in Lincoln this year......
|51 weeks 6 days ago||As crazy as it sounds...||
The NW game is the most important. Now before everyone neg bombs me, let me explain. OF COURSE the OSU game has the utmost importance, but they are not in our division this year.
A loss to NW would be damning in our chances to achieve the team goals (BIG Ten title, Rose Bowl, etc). I certainly expect NW to beat both MSU and Neb, that means our game with them will determine who goes to the B1G Championship game.
With that being stated, I am very confident that we NW. While their O is explosive, their D is not and with the improved athleticism on our D, we match up better against their O.
I am sure there will be a pending future thread, but I am calling for a 12-2 season.....

|1 year 2 weeks ago||Great performance||
Just to remind everyone that an "average" from JV is still way better than 90% of the pitchers in baseball. JV has done enough that he has earned my patience as he works his way back to being "The MAN". Always must see TV.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||He is out||
Just posted on the broadcast that he is out. Being replaced by someone from Balt. Could not catch the name
EDIT: beaten by 1 min. I'm a slow typer on the iPad

They have to call SOME fouls on him. Keep going at him. Soon he will have to back off. Kansas will be nothing with out Withey in there.....
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Considering all things||
We are still in this game. Mitch needs to play as much of the 2nd as he can muster. Overall they were unbalanced. Need to stick to the pick n roll and then dish.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||NOT ANOTHER DAMN COMMERCIAL||
Why even have TO. With all of these TV timeouts. No one can ever get into a game.......
