Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.

You realize you are making a great argument that GRIII should have returned right? If he could have elevated his game and became a first round pick that is ideal for everyone.
I mean, he isn't playing any minutes for an abysmal team. He was a second round pick, which means he is making $500,000 this year and unless he shows some signs of life they are unlikely to pick up his 1 million dollar option for next year. Look at Mitch as a later first round pick; he's guaranteed around 3M for the the next 2 years with team options in year 3 and 4 for up to another 4M. Being a second round pick historically gaurantees you are less likely to get "free agency riches" and more likely to end up outside of the NBA.

I'm not sure I've seen a 50:50 ball that Minny hasn't gotten. Really tough to see and uncharacteristic from previous years.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Interesting||
He would have been a senior this year. It is difficult to say what his role would have been with the squad we had last year. Would he have started over GRIII? Could he have had a role as a scorer off the bench with his 3 point shooting? I felt like during his time here he was forced to play the 5 more often than the 4, and I think he didn't do well in that role.

They are aware that our transition D is bad. Was hoping it would be better at this point in the year.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||stat line||
7/11 from the field, 3/4 FT, 17 points, 8 Rebounds and 3 assists. How did he put up that stat-line so quietly?
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Well||
Is it time to panic yet? Will be very difficult to overcome this start, and giving Purdue all the confidence in the world.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||MSU player development||
Anyone else think this might be the best MSU basketball team we see in the next few years? Harris is a top 10 pick on several mock drafts, and would be crazy not to leave for the NBA. They lose Payne/Appling to graduation. Their 2013/14 recruiting classes don't have a Gary Harris like difference maker either. This may be Izzo's best year to move on.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||A:TO||
Very odd not seeing the advantage in the A:TO rate with a JB team. Walton and Spike both have low TO rates, so it seems to be mostly from the wings initiating offense.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Agreed||
Some recruits do have private accounts, and although I'm not twitter saavy I believe that would solve a lot of these problems. Almost all high-school kids are on twitter these days, so they should be able to have private accounts and not be harassed.

Allen Trieu just reported he is going to MSU this weekend.
Visitor List for #MichiganState this weekend includes in-state RBs Mike Weber & John Kelly, also 4-star TE CJ Conrad

Which spot in our current Defense do you think Wangler would be best suited for?
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Hey Magnus||
Early on, I remember you ranked the QBs michigan was evaluating. Has that list changed in your opinion? Just curious because Speight came in at 8th, behind guys like Chance Stewart, Tyler Wiegars, DeShone Kizer and Travis Smith. All of those guys could pretty easily have turned Blue if they were offered. Top 3 were Cornwell, O'connor and Henderson.

Here is a video of Brent Petway singing in Greek at the Greek league all-star game. Didn't see this posted yet, and I have to agree with the judge holding up a 10 at the end.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||No doubt that Satan will be||
No doubt that Satan will be in good company when Bo Ryan dies; there is no way that a deal hasn't been made at this point.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Kalis is pretty obvious||
Kalis is pretty obvious choice, and if Chris Bryant isn't going to be a factor then Braden will likely need to step up. I think one guy being overlooked is Tom Strobel. He had good practice reports last year, and the main issue was he needed some bulk for the SDE spot. I think he becomes a factor this year.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||JB defender here...||
I've been a JB defender for years because I felt his teams had always out-performed their talent level. Now, I'm having a lot of trouble defending him. Izzo wouldn't allow this type of defense; regardless of freshman.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Wow||
Getting just out worked by an inferior team. Would be nice if JB showed a little passion since his team isn't playing with any.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||well||
A month ago yes. I have no idea what has happened since.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Why no timeout?||
Seriously JB; needed a timeout before that useless possession where LeVert launched a wild shot.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Horford....||
When Horford is in the game, the other team goes on a run. Never fails.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Sweet 16?||
Sweet 16 would be amazing with the way we have played this entire month. Seriously, our last dominant game was Jan 30th vs Northwestern. Even when we beat Illinois this past week, we played one good half only.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Well||
PSU getting some senior night gifts; ridiculous calls down the stretch.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Stauskas||
5th TO tonight. Man, he is hurting us as much as he is helping.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Yes||
I know what a hedge is, and it usually involves Morgan diving back into the lane and not trying to trap. We ran 2 straight perimeter traps that resulted in open 3s.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Why||
Can anyone tell me why we double them on the perimeter with Morgan? It pretty much leads to an open 3 every time, or worse an easy lay-in with our only big on the perimeter.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Well||
He only played 7 minutes and didn't look great. Guessing he isn't 100%, but hopefully the week off will help.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Exactly||
Check umhoops.com. Dylan had a nice write up about it, and statistically Morgan is one of our best defenders.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Hardaway||
Brutal game from hardaway. Not playing with any confidence.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Still waiting||
Still waiting for the next time JB calls a good end of the clock play.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||well||
You're not alone. JB's previous teams had a lot more fortitude than these guys are showing.
