The one and only, you can't clone me (er...him)
|1 week 2 days ago||Aside from the shove, I'm not||
Aside from the shove, I'm not sure about the whole "play like thugs" thing. Honestly, how is a team that STARTS Marco Bellineli and Nate Robinson supposed to even stay close to the Heat? Add on top of that a second-year non-star (Butler) is tasked with playing all 48 while guarding LeBron. This is a team that should get blown out like game 2 every game, but they are making enough plays to stay in it. This is not, as one poster pointed out, the Bad Boys with multiple future HOFers and all-stars.

Big 3, little 11 (and counting)

|1 week 3 days ago||I was about to sarcastically||
I was about to sarcastically post about being forced to run a 5-2 base defense in order to get the best 11 on the field, but then I remembered all those linebackers that we have. First world problems indeed...
|1 week 3 days ago||Most B1G schools would be like Wisconsin||
If they had varsity men's crew (perennially top-15 and sometimes national championship contenders) with a good coach. Because even some of the best programs nationwide rely on walkons, a good coach and decent recruiting would put a Michigan in great position nationally.

Also, in Newton's case, his trip to JUCO was after some alleged criminal transgressions (if memory serves) at Florida, where he went after high school.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Good thing Mississippi State was not sending those letters...||
...years ago. Can you imagine?
To Drew Dileo: "You're a threat"
To Jordan Kovacs: "You're gritty and heady"
To Thomas Gordan: "You've got prison abs" (explanation: http://mgoblog.com/content/2009-recruiting-thomas-gordon)
To Will Campbell: "You're big-boned"
To Denard: "You're shoes are untied" (for the grammar-lovers out there...you know whoever wrote the Ferns letter would mess that up)

It's as if Brady Hoke is taking a Matt Millen approach to recruiting sans underachieving/(alleged) pothead selections. All the WRs to Michigan!

I don't want to speculate how long that will last, but assuming it won't be until Monday what do you plan to do with the rest of your day?
|6 weeks 2 days ago||BUMP!||
Perhaps it is time to bump this thread....

After watching Syracuse send two long, athletic guards to pester Burke around the half-court line, I suddenly knew what Shaka Smart meant about "heating up the point guard", but Burke did not overheat, so to speak...
That does not show up on the stat sheet but limiting turnovers was a huge plus.

It is pretty hard, however, to advance to the National Championship Game without some (or many) close calls going your way. We would be very sore about those calls if the Cuse won and the calls went against us, but, as with any successful team: Close calls--we haz them!
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Wooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!||

I'm so happy for him! Here is a young man who once was the mascot for the Beilein can't recruit argument but has been a key contributor in the beginning of the season and seals it during the second-to-last game.

Gottlieb just said on the post-game show that Florida screwed up not guarding Nik Stauskus because he is a shooter...proof positive that he is not just a shooter.

Probably--the KenPom voters are strongly influenced by recent results, as long as they are nationally televised.

Nik Stauskus plus all the points (at least when we are awarding them in threes...)

...who wishes Don Criqui and the ND radio team was broadcasting for Kansas and repeating their broadcasting from UTL? I think the 2011 UTL call by the ND radio team had to be one of the top moments of sportscaster schadenfreude of all time.

Coach, you have to hold your hands further apart to do the five dollar foot long dance--the preferred gyration for the craziest parties.

|7 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, but in typical SEC||
Yeah, but in typical SEC fashion it is probably year-to-year and Saban will probably end up getting a medical hardship release if he ever misses a bowl game. Not that I anticipate that happening absent an NCAA ban...

Maybe he had just watched that BW3 commercial where 256 teams make the tourney. March-May Madness!
