|4 days 17 hours ago||Lol.||
If you think this doesn't happen at Every major university....Lol. the kid didn't steal anything. You guys need to chill with the witch hunt. It's pathetic at this point.
|1 week 4 days ago||Wilson is not 3rd string.||
Wilson will play before Robinson and Donnal. He may be one of our most talented players and can block shots. We need rebounding and defense in the paint....badly.....I'm all set on the entire team jacking 3s from everywhere.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Smart Kid!||
Welcome Peters! It's damn great to have you!
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Watch O'Korn. He has MAJOR upside.||
I understand that he will sit out this year. It will be hard for any qb to beat him out in the future. That kid is legit. His freshman tape at Houston is very promising. He will play on Sundays.
|4 weeks 14 hours ago||If we add a Shonn Miller for example...||
And return Levert...Irvin...Walton...MAAR. ..Wilson and Dawkins...we will have the same type of athleticism. Add Doyle as a thumper in the paint and the savvy of Spike and you've got yourself a well balanced ball club. That roster can and will make a deep run next year.
|4 weeks 14 hours ago||I think MSU plays a rugged brand....||
Which allows them to slow games down and use brawn to match up with almost anyone. MSU can also shoot it great from outside and has two great guards. They're overall athleticism and ability to run is what sets them apart in this tourney.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Kid is a high level athlete.||
People need to stop with the 3 point emphasis. We cannot continue to live and die by the doggone 3 ball. We need more athletes that have an edge and this kid has that. I think hed be a great addition. We don't need another guy jacking 3s all over the place. We need defense and rebounding...athleticism.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Not a bad choice.||
Harbaugh will land a good QB or two this cycle. Would've been great to get this kid thoUgh.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Marquette and Pitt are very solid teams.||
Those 2 offers are substantial.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I would take Mike Edwards over Wagner in a blink.||
This team needs some brawn and post presence. Wagner does not provide that. The Edwards kid has some power to his game and would be a great addition. I like him better than Teske honestly and Teske will wind up being a very solid player here. With both of those bigs in tow...we could focus on Winston and an elite wing to secure the next 3-4 years of high level basketball. Let's not get cute here. Snag the kid out of your backyard and run. Brown is probably not coming here but we can land on of Towns....Langford or Battle. That will be plenty to contend in the B1G for the next 3 or 4 years given what we already have on the roster.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Hood Politics goes pretty thorough.||
None of the other tracks really move the needle for me. Definitely not an album for radio play and you will likely not hear any of this album in any nightclub setting.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||What is jive?||
That's not even a dialect.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Kitchen sink.||
That's what needs to be thrown at Brown...legally of course. He is a sure shot 2 year player here in our system. Landing him with all the budding talent around him could be epic. Beilein has never had a kid this good out of high school and it's crazy to think of how much he could develop him in Ann Arbor. Brown has to be willing to start a trend and not follow the Duke or Kentucky train....and that's hard to thwart.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Ferentz may not be kind to us.||
He was upset with losing out on Higdon. He may not do us any favors. He was not happy about that whole situation and I'll just leave it at that.
|6 weeks 9 hours ago||Motivation.||
This team should remember this day and use this to fuel next season. Lots to be excited about returning. Caris is going to be the difference between a top 10 and a top 25 team. Either way...Michigan should hear their name this time next year on the NCAA tournament selection show.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I clocked him at 4.58 using my watch.||
That's plenty fast. He's going to be a steal for somebody. 6ft5 240 and running sub 4.6......uh yes please.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Spike is not Derrick at all.||
Derrick rebounds and plays defense. He is also a much better athlete and just as good a shooter.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Funchess will go 1st round.||
He's too big and too talented not to. If he ran sub 4.6... that's freakish. If Karsch says 4.48...who are we to call him a liar? New England could use him as could about 10 other teams at the back half of the 1st round. Great day for Devin!
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Caris needs another year.||
The NBA is going to expect him to ball from Day 1. They don't care if he's coming off of an injury. If he leaves and doesn't knock it out of the park. ..he will bounce around or wind up in the D-League. Come back and enjoy your Senior year dude.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Truth Hurts.||
This is some liberal every one gets a trophy situation. This is Michigan Basketball were talking about here. We we deserved of a National Title just 2 years ago and went to the Elite 8 a year ago. If you think for a second that losing to EMU or NJIT is okay then maybe you have the issue. You just spazzed for a couple hundred characters because people aren't in awe of what Beilein did this year. Are you freaking serious? This was not his best work. We BLEW several games in B1G play off of numb-minded stretches of bad coaching and terrible execution. We haven't seen that in years past. We had a few injuries this year that obviously set us back but there was still NCAA tournament quality in this team. Beilein does a terrific job of developing guys and did so again this year. This team still went 15-14 so far this season with all but 2 scholarship guys available. That's not great or even good to be honest. We give this team a pass for this year because they are super young and have a great future. There are still a couple areas of glaring concern.
1. Recruiting against other Powers.
This is what keeps us from reaching our ceiling. Maybe you don't want to see this program's ceiling...but I for one certainly do. We should land studs every year because this is Michigan. We should win games against inferior lower level teams. We should win games up 18 and up 6 or 7 under a minute to go. Those things should happen...and they didn't this year. being an NIT bubble team is NOT okay and I'm thoroughly disgusted that you're of the mind that we should just be content and act like that is business as usual. We are not Michigan State...whining about injuries and our misfortunes. Shut up and ball. The kids played admirably but I thought Beilein should've and could've done better with this team. This team should be at least 19-11 and a tournament bubble team. We went 1-4 versus our hated tivals. Nobody expected domination but you're acting like we should be rejoicing because we beat an average Illinois team. No. We should've beat their ass all 3 times this season because even with our 2 injuries. ..we are better.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||We lost to NJIT and EMU.||
This was not his best coaching job. We lost a lot of winnable games due to lack of execution. At some point it's on the coach also...cant keep scapegoating Zak Irvin and the freshman players. We should have done better this year. A great performance today does NOT change that.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||People calling for Beilein's head are silly.||
Coach B has not been at his best this year and that has been evident and obvious. Injuries really hurt us but losses to NJIT and EMU healthy....inexcusable. Losses at MSU/Illinois/NW with nice leads and given the effort of the players were also inexcusable. This teams should be 4 to 5 wins better than their record which is where people's frustration comes in. We do have personnel issues defensively with the injuries and are forced to play guys that have to be hidden in a zone. We do tend to miss on our big recruiting targets which is ridiculous given how much success we've had and the type of school Michigan is. Our inbounding is still the 9th Wonder of the world as to how bad we are at it. Despite all of that...this young team has shown growth and is fun to watch. Beilein is a great coach. This year was not his best and he needs to do a better job of controlling attrition. Too many of our kids transfer or leave prematurely for the draft and while it's not Beilein's fault...he certainly has a hand in it. I think we have a great chance to pull off an upset tommorrow and our expectations should be as such. We are Michigan. We don't bow down to Wisconsin in anything. Anyone who thinks Beilein is going anywhere is an idiot. He will need to improve off of this performance coaching wise next year however if we are to win the B1G.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Good for Dakich!||
Kid has a great attitude and works hard. Nice to see him get a bucket.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Sloppy finish here.||
Zak and Spike with 2 awful TOs. Spike getting bullied on defense for easy 2s. And of course inbounding trouble.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Great Block Kam!||
There you go!
|6 weeks 3 days ago||That turnover there is where Chatman needs work...||
The game seems so fast to him. He just has moments of aloof play...like a great Dane in puppy hood. He needs a big jump. He has size and talent.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||25 points between MAAR and Dawkins so far.||
Not bad at all. Those kids have made huge jumps in a few months.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Dawkins is playing great.||
He is a total package guy.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||How fun is this!?||
Best game we've played all year.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Nike please.||
Adidas is atrocious.
