He will end up as a better pro than at college. He has good form and is a good knockdown jump shooter
|1 day 3 hours ago||Funny||
People said the same thing about Carr's recruiting classes when RR took over but half conveniently ignored it.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Actually the money generated by Michigan Athletics||
Goes towards Michigan Athletics, not the University since both are separate entities. They are a rare instance where the budget is not connected to the university.
|4 days 13 hours ago||I think you can argue||
that Basketball is #1 at the moment considering the state of Football from last year.
|5 days 2 hours ago||Soria will have an opportunity to close||
games since he has experience. Nathan is on a very short leash which I think he'll be done when he has a couple of bad outings. It'd be Joba as setup and Soria as closer.
|5 days 2 hours ago||dumb trades, yes||
dumb draft picks, no. Joe D did well in draft picks and landed a lot of quality NBA players whether if they're starters or contributors like Drummond, Monroe, Stuckey, Affalo, etc.
It's the dumb signing and trades that did Joe D in.
|5 days 15 hours ago||One thing that Peppers did a terrible job||
is putting his hands up on Funchess. It was a half-assed job at it. It should be lower and much more aggressive. Otherwise, he did fine on recovering.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Robbie Ray is being looked at to replace||
Scherzer, not Thompson.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Paid a steep price to get him||
gave up their #3 prospect, Jake Thompson, and #5 prospect, Corey Knebel.
A risky move considering that Soria have one year left in his contract this season plus club option for next season. It's a move that DD had to make but giving up two of the top pitching prospects is a steep price.

It's so much fun and ensure you get the player you want
|1 week 4 hours ago||Actually 165||
|1 week 4 hours ago||Actually it's 165||
not 175. Either way, he's very skinny coming in as a freshman.
|1 week 1 day ago||Michigan||
was sponsored by Champion, Nike and now Adidas. Your point being.....?
|1 week 2 days ago||Saw him in high school||
and thought the opposite. He looked terrible everytime I see him play. He has potential, but he was not good at all.
|1 week 5 days ago||FWIW||
Trae Waynes is viewed to be the better CB of the two when Dennard was on the team before he got drafted at 1st round by the Bengals. Waynes is a better athlete and has higher ceiling than Dennard.
Kris Drummond is another S who is a potential 1st rounder but could very well be the 1st S taken in the draft (Still think Landon Collins is the best S in 2015 draft). In other words, MSU secondary was stacked last year.
|1 week 6 days ago||SMU is expected||
To be a top 15 team. Their shitty non conference schedule is the only reason why they missed the NCAA tourney. They were arguably deserving of a NCAA bid.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||You can't assume that based on his||
Offense with Michigan that it will be the same next year. There will be an evolution and I'm betting he'll play more 2 bigs than in the past. Wilson has the frame to get bigger. To say he will never have the body to bang is silly at this point.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Doesn't matter||
Pittsnogle is a center for JB. Does that make Bill Lambieer a stretch 4 since yanno, he played at 5 for the Pistons since he shoots 3 pts?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Pittsnogle played center for WVU||
not at PF.
JB has stated his desire to have 2 bigs at the same time. It was wiped out when McGary got hurt before the season started and had to play limited minutes. He does want to have 2 bigs for his offense, a true stretch 4 with a big body. This is where DJ Wilson comes into play.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Huh||
you said there's no game experience amongst bigs then you named Chatman and Wilson who has zero experience as well.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||KCP should be an odds on favorite to win||
Orlando Summer League MVP. He was scorching hot, avg over 26 ppg, 8 rpg while shooting over 50%. More importantly, his confidence is soaring after a slow start in his rookie season
|2 weeks 4 days ago||meh||
don't care for it. IMO, the Cavs roster outside of LBJ is overrated. Kyrie is good but not top tier PG that many make him out to be. Waiter is a ball hog and isn't a good shooter. Thompson is meh to me. Bennett is lol to me.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I disagree with some of his answers||
in particularly on his view of JB's offense. Yes, it has a big guy who set picks, rebound and play defense, but Jordan Morgan is very limited offensively. Horford has better offensive game but is still limited. Only McGary showed more diversity in his game as a 5 but weren't able to see it for the full season.
If any, JB has shown willingness to evolve his offensive system while not losing the integrity of his system. Doyle is a true post player who can shot midrange. Donnal has range that extends to 3 pt line. Only Beifeldt fits Quinn's description but apparently can shoot 3s.
I expect to see an evolution of the system and could see 2 bigs because of his desire to compete with B1G team's physicality down low while still having a stretch 4 aka Wilson.
There is a reason why JB targeted big guys who can bang down low but still has the ability to pop out and make shots. He wants a big guy who can shoot. Yes, Morgan did well in the offense in his role, but if you have 5 players on court who is a threat to score at anywhere, it's a real weapon and should open up the driving lane for LeVert, Walton and Irvin to drive through.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I agree||
Considering Hoke's record has gotten worse over the year.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Still very difficult to get a no no||
Regardless of competition. He did it again against MLB players and that is impressive
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Most draft projections||
Has GRIII going in at 1st round....
|5 weeks 16 hours ago||Fortunately||
if there is one position that I can say with certainity that USA produce world class soccer player, it is Goalkeeper. USA are never in shortage of quality GK. They had Kasey Keller for years and now Tim Howard for years as well. They also have a quality backup GK who would start for most of the countries in this year World Cup in Guzan.
|5 weeks 23 hours ago||This is not the world of college athletics||
With the way it is right now. If you charge tickets at about 20-30 per game, michigan would lose money and will not be able to support non revenue sports
|5 weeks 1 day ago||College athletics||
Is a business whether you like it or not. They are there to generate revenues.

I'm stupid and drunk and wrote out the wrong post.
