|1 hour 3 min ago||Beside that one year,||
he never lived up to the expectation as a 3rd overall pick so he's in the bust category. 8 year career isn't bad which is more than most can say but if you're picking someone at 3rd overall, you expect an all-pro career.
|1 hour 3 min ago||He only had one good year||
and the rest are either meh or sucks. He was never a good NFL player.
|1 hour 57 min ago||Michigan draft busts||
David Terrell: 8th overall pick
Chris Perry: 26th overall pick
Braylon Edwards: 3rd overall pick
Tim Biakabutuka: 8th overall pick
|1 day 1 hour ago||There are a couple players that would've benefited||
from JB's system and they're Daniel Horton(Senior year that is) and Dion Harris.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Not to mention||
they have an McDonald's All-American who is a potential lottery pick sitting on the bench to illustrate on how deep their team really is. He has been super productive whenever he's on the floor which is scary because their starter is an All-Conference in Karnowski. The players are full of transfers from P5 conference teams.
Their staying power as an elite or great basketball program is nothing short of amazing.
|2 days 16 hours ago||The offense you just described||
fits TA's offense to a T. They were athletic but can't shoot worth a shit for the most part and turn the ball over a ton. They get blown out by really good teams and lose to bad teams.
JB on the other hand, runs a precise offensive system with great success. They often are the best shooting team in the conference and their efficency are always among the best. JB offense works because it just does. Even on a bad night, they usually were able to score over 1 PPP where TA offense on a bad night can't score worth a shit.
|2 days 23 hours ago||Based on what we've seen in last few years||
it looks like the committee reward teams with quality wins (moreso than bad losses unless you have a lot of them). MSU's best win are Wichita State and Minnesota. Are they enough for MSU to make a strong case? My answer is no. They have had bad losses like PSU and Northeastern.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Exact same thing||
when JB let Bielfeldt go because he wanted to develop Wagner and Wilson going forward.
JB is forward thinking in terms of player development. Spike was a special case because he retired and JB wasn't sure that he was going to be 100% effective which he was right. He wanted to give Xavier some experience so he can build onto the sophomore campaign. PG is a hard position for any player to master in JB's offense which is why he recruited PG in three straight classes so they can fill in when they leave the program. Xavier -> Eli Brooks -> David DeJulius. All three bring something different to the table.
|3 days 19 hours ago||I'm just here for the postbang||
|5 days 12 hours ago||Interesting fact||
The Pistons was debating between Devin Booker and Stanley Johnson but ultimately chose Stanley because of his age, size, athleticism and potential. With Devin Booker quickly becoming one of the better young G in the league, some of the front office personnel were grumbling that they passed on a star for a young player who has an attitude problem.
|6 days 13 hours ago||Look at SG in the NBA||
there's a lot of scarcity in quality SGs in the league. You have Klay Thompson, Jimmy Butler, DeMar DeRozan, CJ McCollum, Devin Booker. I don't consider James Harden a SG since he's a PG for the Rockets. After that, you can make a serious case for KCP after top 5 because it's a very weak position. Based on that definition, yes, he's one of the better SG in the league.
|6 days 13 hours ago||Considering||
the SG market KCP will command a lot of money since he's better than a lot of SG getting 15 million per year.
|6 days 15 hours ago||I wouldn't keep Jackson||
I am more inclined to keep Drummond but it would take a very good offer for me to consider trading him away. Guy like Drummond who is basically a walking 20-10 and still has potential to be better.
KCP has emerged as one of the better SG in the league. His defense has been solid but his shooitng has improved to the point where he's a legit 3 and D SG which is rare. He still needs work on driving game because he has a tendency to go full speed or stop with nothing in between. If he can develop it a bit more, he's a valuable commodity.
|1 week 11 hours ago||When it comes to the pros||
they really don't give a shit about which school a person attend as long as he's good.
|1 week 22 hours ago||Successful outside small CBs||
are the exception, not the norm. Even though Jourdan Lewis measurement at SR Bowl was a big win for him since he barely met the minimum threshold. There are NFL teams who abide by the measurement like height, weight, arm length, hand size, etc. They will disqualify players if they don't meet them all.
Jourdan Lewis won't get a look by Seattle Seahawks because they favor taller CBs with long arms for example.
|1 week 1 day ago||Because JB||
wants them to get back on defense and not give up a quick 2/3 points in transition. He wants to slow down the game and let his offense take over with shooting.
|1 week 5 days ago||Michigan defense has been playing well as of late||
maybe it's a sign of them figuring out Donlan's defensive scheme where they're much more comfortable at playing defense aka proactive instead of reactive.
|1 week 5 days ago||Considering||
on how bad he started off this season, it's nice to see him coming into form. His shooting has been improving which is good but his bread and butter is always driving to the hoop.
|1 week 5 days ago||Not odd they aren't invited||
with the exception of Magnuson, I think Kalis and Thomas aren't good enough to get drafted.
|1 week 5 days ago||There are plenty of||
players from Shrine Game and Senior Bowl games got invited to the combine. The fact they weren't invited is telling but not the end of the world. 35% of the players who got invited didn't get drafted. That being said, I don't think Kalis would get drafted but Magnuson has a chance of getting drafted.
|1 week 6 days ago||Kalis||
making all conference speak more about how bad B1G OL has been this year. Dan Feeney is the only elite OL on the list. Pat Eflien struggled at C but showed out at OG the year before.
For comparsion sake, Taylor Mouton from WMU is projected to be a 2nd round pick and can start for both Michigan and MSU. How he fell through the crack, I don't know. Mouton has the NFL size at 6'5" 330 lbs and athleticism to stick at OG and OT. Mouton would've easily made all-B1G this season.
|2 weeks 50 min ago||I doubt he'll put||
up a good combine numbers considering his struggle in coverage. He's kind of slow and lacks the COD to keep up with quicker players. He's much better going foward than side to side and backward.
|2 weeks 51 min ago||Combine is more for interviews than||
|2 weeks 53 min ago||Combine is all about physical measurement||
aka Height/Weight/Arm Length and interviews more than workouts. Workouts are secondary to the evaluations. It shouldn't raise or lower prospect's stock by no more than half a round.
|2 weeks 1 hour ago||WMU trademarked it||
but it was Fleck who started the RTB slogan because it is his idea.
|2 weeks 22 hours ago||It's pretty obvious that Teske||
isn't fully comfortable with running the offense at 5 and the defensive concept as well. Once he feel comfortable, he should be a force at the low block as a shot blocker.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Problem||
is they don't watch basketball and don't watch NBA. They don't realize that the trend has been moving towards spacing and 3 pt shooting.
If there's any criticism, it should be on defense, not offense. JB offense has been efficient for years.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I want Michigan to beat IU||
at Bloomington more than anything. I consider IU as our biggest rivals along with MSU in basketball. OSU basketball is meh in terms of rivalry to me.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Pounding the post has never been JB's MO||
and post plays are the least efficient shot in basketball. Mo, Donnal and Wilson aren't post players.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Combine workout isn't going to improve||
a prospect's stock especially when scouts are expecting Jabrill to test out well in explosiveness and speed test.
