|2 days 3 hours 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 days 3 hours 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 days 6 hours 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 days 6 hours ago||Huh||
you said there's no game experience amongst bigs then you named Chatman and Wilson who has zero experience as well.
|2 days 15 hours 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 days 16 hours 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 days 16 hours 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.

Considering Hoke's record has gotten worse over the year.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Still very difficult to get a no no||
Regardless of competition. He did it again against MLB players and that is impressive
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Most draft projections||
Has GRIII going in at 1st round....
|2 weeks 6 days 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.
|2 weeks 6 days 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
|2 weeks 6 days 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.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Actually||
English media were very pessimistic of their chances of advancing out of group play. They have accepted that they are no longer the elite team in FIFA.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Not all college baseball players||
get free education. They get part of it paid off. Unlike football and basketball, baseball players don't get a full scholarship. They often get partial scholarship from the athletic department.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Josh Jackson is 100% for sure that||
he's going out of state. Likely a UK/KU battle. JJ has zero interest in staying in-state.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Not really||
Navy runs flexbone offense that features a ton of triple option plays. They'll hold onto the ball for about 7-8 minutes per possession and OSU defense will be undisciplined thus making easier for Navy to get 5-6 yards a carry. The longer they hold onto the ball, the greater the chance that Navy will cover the spread.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||USMNT||
doesn't exactly have the technical ability to take advantage of Ghana's mistakes.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I seen more flops in NBA than||
FIFA right now. LeBron James, despite the fact he's 6'9" 270 lbs and can outmuscle anybody with ease, is a habitual flopper.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||People forget that Fab 5||
plays stellar defense and were unselfish team who always share the ball. Yes, they're not a good shooting team and turn the ball over a ton, but they make up for it with their athleticism and unselfish plays.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||They're 99.9% wrong||
Michigan isn't even recruiting him all that hard because they know that he's not even looking at Michigan and MSU at all. He's either UK or KU.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||June 15th||
is the first official day that college can "officially" offer scholarship to 2016 prospects. None of the 2016 prospects holds an offer from Michigan for this reason.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||and MSU as well||
he's 100% going out of state.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||It's not some unique phenomeon||
Michigan isn't the only one who is having this type of problem. Bama have a big problem with retaining students and they're way better than Michigan as a program. Not about wins. Students do truly feel like they need wifi which is their #1 priority when they're at the game so they can be on social media.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Wait and see how||
Robbie Ray and Ian Krol develop, not this year but in the future. I don't think the trade is as bad as many make it out to be. Is it great? No, but DD has a great track record on trades that may seem like a bad one to begin with only to realize that he's a genius to have a foresight to find players that fits what the organization needs.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Granted it's a G.O.D at the WC||
but if USMNT goes 0-3 and look bad in the process, the criticism on Klinsy will get louder especially with the inclusion of Donovan. If he had Landon and USMNT goes 0-3, Klinsy would get a pass because it's the G.O.D. The only way to shut up the critics is to advance to the knockout stages. With the way they have been playing the last two matches, it doesn't bode well for the opener against Ghana who will give USMNT defense a ton of problems with their pace and striking ability.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Not even a close comp||
Dombrowski may have gotten the trade right. Fister's value will only go down from there and managed to get a future LSP, solid lefty reliever and a player who he traded away. He did it to make room for Smyly in the rotation while keeping Porcello on the team who is younger.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Known to own a gun||
is a problem even if he has permit and doesn't use it for dumb reason?!? wow
|6 weeks 3 days ago||If Nik, GRIII and Mitch||
are all drafted at 1st round, that means that Michigan in 2013 NC game would field 5 first rounders on one floor plus one future 1st rounder in LeVert off the bench. Amazing.
