Bacari did fine w/ Mitch and JMo. Doyle needs better hands, but he's in position. Donnal is benched. Should have kept Max.
Anyway, the good news is the rest of the B1G is a piping hot mess. So... we'll get our fair share of wins and finish in the top half so we're making the tourney. Also the rest of our OOC schedule is not that bad.

Fitz would probably be an excellent Harbaugh RB.

Well, we did recruit the #25 player in the country, Kam Chatman... who unfortunately is not playing like that...
|21 hours 19 min ago||In the long run, this game||
In the long run, this game means nothing. That being said, let's at least shoot the ball well. Can we see some more ball movement, better spacing and attempts at rebounds. I know we're not a rebounding team, but when the ball is a 50/50, we have to fight for those.

The staff is fine. We just need to recruit some guys who are alphas. I mean everyone is a freaking support player except for Caris.
|21 hours 22 min ago||Terrible shooting from a||
Terrible shooting from a "shooting team". That equals a loss against any opponent. Honestly, I didn't even think UConn looked that good. I thought Xavier was much better. We just had the coldest shooting night ever (except for Caris).
|21 hours 22 min ago||Thanks God Caris came back||
Thanks God Caris came back though. This year would be over without him.

I'm trying to be optimistic, but that game sucked. I'm going to chalk it off to cold shooting, but come on, if Robinson is not hitting shots, then just pull him and put in someone who can dribble drive or move the ball around like Dawkins, MAAR or Spike (if he's not hurt).
Zak looked hurt and not 100% so he should sit out against good teams. Let him come in and warm up against lesser opponents. Doyle was ok, but rough hands. Donnal was benched the entire game, which makes it crazy to have not kept Bielfeldt around another year... I don't get that at all.

Leave the lawyer alone. We're an endangered species! #SortOf #LikelyNotTrue

He does. He's a song-writer as well and I think you can find his music on soundcloud if you're interested.

I think Durkin should stay a few more years, then wait for the Georgia job to open up.

I watched the interview with President Loh and he said he wants an offensive minded head coach who will spread things out. He also kept mentioning that they want to be the Oregon of the east.
|5 days 20 hours ago||I think people are||
I think people are overreacting because they are not as familiar with Xavier. If we lost to Kentucky, UCLA or Duke, people would be more forgiving.
It's the 3rd game, there's a lot more to be played. Let's see how they bounce back. THey have another tough one next week.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Just because they're not all||
Just because they're not all freshmen does not mean they're all experienced. It takes a while to learn a sophisticated offense like Beilein's. It takes even longer to play good zone defense in college.
There is a big gap between an All-Freshman team and an Experienced team. We're mostly sophomores with a few upperclassmen sprinkled in.
Bottom line is they need to play together more and need to man up.

On the Bad List add Illinois, Rutgers, Penn State, Northwestern, Minnesota, Nebraska, etc.
I think we'll be ok. Thanks.
|5 days 20 hours ago||5th best recruiting class in||
5th best recruiting class in the B1G Ten. If that's second tier, then I don't know what to say. Maybe you need to relax and quit throwing in the towel a year before they even enroll.

There are idiots everywhere... but OSU does not have any non-idiots in its fanbase!
|5 days 21 hours ago||I just assume that the||
I just assume that the blowhards type 10 times more than guys who are chill and just move on to other tasks in their day to day lives... Most Michigan fans are great, it's the few who have a lot of free time and like to bi#ch and moan about everything that are annoying.
|5 days 21 hours ago||It's basketball. This is||
It's basketball. This is like pre-season unless we're trying to get a top-seed. If we go in as a 7 or 8 seed and have a hot hand in March, we can still go pretty far. In basketball, people only remember post-season play. No one cares how many games you lost so long as you make it to the Tourney and make a nice run. But it's time to clean up the fouls, free throws, and silly defense - like stop hedging when it gets nothing done, etc.
|5 days 21 hours ago||Lot of ball to be played||
Lot of ball to be played before then. We got 3 games next week and I hope we make a decent showing. Time to wake up.
|5 days 21 hours ago||Keep fighting the fight.||
Keep fighting the fight. Lots of geezers in the down low crowd, and they only get into the games during Big Ten season against rivals...
|5 days 21 hours ago||Well, a shooting team||
Well, a shooting team requires guys to shoot well... Today was a terrible shooting day. When guys like Irvin and Dawkins are missing open 3's, it doesn't bode well.
|5 days 21 hours ago||I miss Jordan Morgan. Heck,||
I miss Jordan Morgan. Heck, I would even take Deshawn Sims at this point.
|5 days 21 hours ago||5 is the hardest position to||
5 is the hardest position to develop because it takes a few years to bulk them up. Honestly, I think we should have kept Max... we could have used him, just like we could have used Horford last year (even though he left on his own).
We have a very good recruiting class coming in next year, but again, I don't know if any of the 5's in that class will be able to contribute until they're like sophomores or juniors.
I think we had a couple misses that hurt us, but I can't blame Beilein for playing a clean recruiting game.
This team has a lot of potential, but fans want results now...
|5 days 21 hours ago||If this is the kick in the||
If this is the kick in the ballz that we need to get in tourney shape by March, then I'm fine with this. I just hope we learn the lessons we have to and play a lot cleaner going forward. Way too many fouls and giving up free throws and easy looks.
If we clean it up, we can be dangerous, but we need more from Dawkins, Walton and ANY OF THE 5'S.

No. I'm pretty optimistic. I'm happy w/ our season so far and as long as we put out some effort, I'm not going to complain. I also have kids, a wife and a job so I got to keep moving and staying active, etc.

That was Ace's point. He burned his redshirt today, unless he gets injured, but that's a separate medical redshirt criteria and not the same as a typical redshirt.

If you play, you can't redshirt, unless you get injured, then that's a medical redshirt.
