A max deal for Jackson? I know the cap goes up, but damn...
I was one of the few who thought Stanley Johnson projected to the next level better than Winslow did. Hollis-Jefferson was saying recently he thought Johnson's game was more suited for the pro game than in college. People forget was playing alongside no one who could create offense at Zona (and Miller hasn't had a good offense since...???), meanwhile Winslow had all the room in the world to operate alongside the best low post scorer in college, the best pure-PG in college, and sniper to stretch the court (Cook). Johnson would've looked every bit as good (or better) if you swapped them out...

Yes, parody. You heard me right muthafucka....
|13 hours 12 min ago||*Insert Kate Upton joke here*||
This isn't out of the ordinary for pitchers...we've seen it often. He had a great run. At his peak, he about was as good as we've seen from anybody in the 2000's.
It's a shame we never won with that Verlander/Max/Miggy/Prince/etc. I probably took those teams for granted...I just assumed they would win eventually. Had some great playoff runs, but never finished them off.
With the parody that exists in baseball, it's not completely over, but those days of being the perennial favorites/contender are over. Was fun while it lasted.
|4 days 4 hours ago||He should put some pretty||
He should put some pretty decent numbers there. A shitload of bigs that teams will collapse on, and he's about the only player on the roster who can shoot.
If he likes to win, he'll be miserable, but he should be able to put up numbers that will get him paid w/ some team down the road...

"If I'm a recruit and I hear that, I'm signing with Meyer" - Cowherd.
Why the hell would he think anybody under 18 would spend their time listening to his show? Hell, I didn't start listening until I reached my mid-20's, got a 9-to-5, and life became significantly more boring...
|1 week 3 days ago||A lot of scouts and bball||
A lot of scouts and bball fans (even UM fans like myself) assumed he was going to have a hard transition to the league. He'll be able to stick around a long time as a really solid reserve PG once he figures things out.
|1 week 3 days ago||Eh, I actually like 'em...||
They've done FARRRRRR worse.
|1 week 6 days ago||Doesn't make sense to draft||
Doesn't make sense to draft Winslow if that's the move (which I like). Seems like the 7'1 shooter would be the better fit there...
|1 week 6 days ago||I wouldn't say he's a much||
I wouldn't say he's a much better athlete than Gary Harris. I wouldn't say he's a better athlete than Gary Harris at all, actually...what he has over Harris is a significant size advantage (Gary was about 6'3, Langford a legit 6'6).
I like Langford as a player, but don't neccessarily like him in Izzo's system. I think he would have thrived in Beilein's system tho. I actually liked his upside more than Battle's, so if it's true Battle committed just to keep Langford away w/o truly having his mind made up, then that's very fucked up & unfortunate for Michigan.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||- Build a foundation early||
- Build a foundation early with gritty kids with no egos who get it done.
- Win games & develop the roster, which will entice recruits. We have to put ourselves in a position to stop selling hope & the past, and start selling results.
...then we will be able to bring in the big-time talent year in, year out.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Exposure? LOL||
Nah, exposure isn't the reason he left Detroit...especially considering he was already considered (arguably) the #1 player in the country when he left...
He & his family left Detroit for the same reasons many others have over the past 20+ years, unfortunately....
|5 weeks 3 days ago||*don't think||
....and I wonder if him potentially leaving could affect Monte Morris (Flint-native who is arguably the best pure PG in the country... wanted to stay home but didn't get offered by MSU & Michigan favored Walton over him).
|5 weeks 3 days ago||^^^yea||
Both Cassius Winston & MIles Bridges have ISU & Michigan in their top 5.
Don't Hoiberg's decision matters much as they wouldn't end up there even if he stayed.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, if you know anything||
Yeah, if you know anything about D. Summers, this shouldn't surprise you one bit. Summers being high has been a running joke among Rico Beard/Jim Comp/MSU writers for several years now.
Izzo tried to get rid of that entire team during Summers/Lucas senior year, lol. Can't remember how many dudes ended up getting kicked off that team/transferred, but that group was a bunch of fuck ups.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Fantastic.||
|6 weeks 8 hours ago||For what it's worth, Jamal||
For what it's worth, Jamal Murray (a combo guard who is arguably the best scorer in HS, regardless of class) also has Michigan in his Top-5, and he's from Kitchener, which is very close to Michigan.
I don't think he ends up at UM (Oregon & UK are supposedly the favorites, but we all know to take that w/ a grain of salt), but he is from Kitchener, ON, which is close to the Detroit-area (relative to the other schools he's considering), and obviously being close to home is of some concern to him, because MSU is also in his top 5.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||This man won't fail. Will||
This man won't fail. Will probably take a good amount of patience, but it's just a matter of time...
Too much work ethic, too many connections (how many other coaches could pull this off?).

those are beautiful
|7 weeks 4 days ago||There are times when Connor||
There are times when Connor Cook looks like a #1 overall pick. He can thread the needle as well as any QB I've seen in the past couple years.
...and then there are times when he looks like he shouldn't be considered in the top 4 rounds.
So I don't know what to make of his NFL ceiling (I'd probably stay away...especially considering that if you do a twitter search on his name, you'd see a lot of MSU students complain about him being an asshole on-and-around campus...apparently has some Manziel-esque character traits), but you can't really argue with his college production.
Cook also has the benefit of one of the best offensive lines in the country (dude usually has ALL DAY to throw), which is why I'm surprised that you are surprised about them having linemen rated high. Conklin, Allen & Clark are all considered to have pretty high NFL potential.

We need more speed on the field, and that boy can run, if anything else.

Um, at the 1:08 mark....who is that? Donovan Peoples-Jones?
|8 weeks 3 days ago||I think he ends up at Cal...||
the moment Jaylen Brown committed to Cal, and word came out that Swanigan hadn't signed, I assumed this wasn't a done deal....
That Cal situation seems fishy as hell to me, I'm sorry....
|9 weeks 2 days ago||I'm sad||
I told myself not to get attached to this situation...
...and I ended up doing it anyway.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Talk about a nut-punch....||
I always thought roster-wise, UK was a better fit, which is why I wasn't getting my hopes up...
...but still, that would be fucked up if true.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||A bit of Jaylen Brown to UK||
A bit of Jaylen Brown to UK buzz starting in the social media sphere..

Bridges is 2016, so no. Both are considered 1-and-done type prospects, so they wouldn't overlap.

Hopefully a Georgia native will prove Richt overwise with an announcement in a couple days...

"He'll become student assistant coach for the team"
^ I think that's fantastic.

I didn't expect him to be so damn good on TV. He was a great analyst.
