|5 hours 3 min ago||I think that had little to do with his age||
and everything to do with him playing four years in college. That's what put him closer to his perceived ceiling.
|5 hours 42 min ago||Beilein's rotations tend to be short.||
He's using Irvin as the only backup at three positions this season and he's not getting a lot of minutes. I can't see how he'll be compelled to burn Wilson's redshirt to add depth in your most likely scenario. I'd bank on on 8-9 man rotations continuing to be the norm however the roster shakes out.
|21 hours 36 min ago||My two cents on the BCS||
When the computers were using margin of victory, they were worse. I'd prefer they leave the computers out of the equation if they are going to hamstring their formulas.

#2 Jordan Morgan
Walton has shown the most improvement since the early season. Both have become much more consistent. Their positions were the biggest question marks, too.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Check out the BPI.||
Four Big Ten teams are ahead of us, plus 11 loss OK St.
|2 days 1 hour ago||absolutely not||
We desperately needed a PG and picked up Spike first.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Do you honestly believe||
that you were telling any of us something we didn't already know?
|2 days 2 hours ago||Sometimes things just work out for the best.||
Without his transfer we don't have room to take LeVert. Also, "would have fit perfectly"? He did play two seasons for Beilein. In all likelihood, his role and minutes would have diminshed last season.
|2 days 15 hours ago||I'm only doing the first team..||
pg - Burke
sg - Stauskas
pf - Novak
c - Morgan
Apologies to Tim Hardaway, who would be my sixth man. Novak and Morgan aren't the most talented players at their positions, but they contributed the most to their teams and the program.
|3 days 2 hours ago||Here's the problem.||
They're running a website whose success is based on having people read their writing. At that point, criticizing their execrable command of the English language is fair game. You would think they could put just a little effort in doing a better job. Instead they seem to take the tack that their poor writing is a badge of honor, shows they're pure football guys. Frankly, I've wondered sometimes whether they even read their own work.
|3 days 15 hours ago||With four new starters,||
this was supposed to be a rebuilding year.
|3 days 18 hours ago||It's just a one year extension.||
not a big commitment
|4 days 1 hour ago||Getting A+ prospects sounds good,||
but those trades aren't easy to make. I doubt the Tigers turned down any blockbuster offers for Scherzer.
|4 days 2 hours ago||They might still have taken him.||
It just makes it less of a no-brainer for the Nationals. I don't think we know why the Tigers made the trade. Possible injury concerns make at least as much sense as saving money.
|4 days 4 hours ago||You've got me me beat then.||
I've never seen worse than these. The fake belts are an odd touch.
|5 days 18 hours ago||not worried at all||
Syracuse is neither a bigger program, nor should have a bigger budget. Beilein's age makes him a less attractive candidate in any case. If UNC or Duke need a new coach in a couple of years, I don't see them hire someone just a few years younger than Williams or K.
|5 days 18 hours ago||I can't find anything to criticize||
in what he said. He played four years for Fisher. He's certainly earned whatever opinion he has of his coaching ability. I find it very refreshing to have former players talk about how good our coaches are. It beats the hell out of them criticizing coaches they never played for and don't know much about.
|5 days 20 hours ago||We've had that "Fort mentality" for||
all but 3 of the last 40+ years. We can see that not having it didn't produce the greatest results.
|5 days 21 hours ago||I pretty much agree, except||
I think the Big Ten spot is between us and Wisc, whoever finishes better. Also Iowa State is more likely a threat to move up than Creighton.
|5 days 22 hours ago||Kaminsky is actually a lower usage player,||
if you consider possessions per game. No way the POY is a guy who sits 15 minutes a game.
|5 days 23 hours ago||I'll go out on a limb and predict||
that Izzo gets zero first or second place votes. It's a two man race with Bo Ryan likely third.
|6 days 2 hours ago||I think we have much better||
than a slight shot at a two seed. Right now I think the last two are some combination of Michigan, Wisconsin, Syracuse or Virginia and I don't think there's any chance of both going to the ACC.
|6 days 6 hours ago||They also don't play||
PSU, Maryland and Rutgers. 100% Delany's fault.
|6 days 6 hours ago||Closest might be eliminating 2 to make 1||
Closest might be eliminating 2 to make 1 and 3 to make 2 free throws.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Your chronology is off.||
That incident with McQueary occured in 2001 and the DA was never notified. The complaint in 1998 was brought by a mother, but the DA declined to pursue it after a police investigation.
|6 days 19 hours ago||A platoon LF can't be too hard to find.||
They can wait till teams have to cut down their rosters to see who's available. Maybe a prospect will step up by then.
|6 days 21 hours ago||Why the misleading title, OP?||
That's just annoying.
If Suh was smart about it, he could probably pull it off. He should have a good idea of his market value and can insist on a straightforward deal. He can and should still pay a lawyer an hourly rate to review the contract. If negotiations don't go the way he wants, he could still hire someone to take over.
|1 week 46 min ago||Where did Texas ask Kinsler to move?||
Other than to Detroit, that is.
|1 week 1 hour ago||LOL, if we're a 2-seed in the west, when would we get Arizona?||
I think it's obvious that our team is playing better than we were back then. I wonder if Arizona can say the same about their team.
|1 week 1 day ago||Preferred walk-ons get recruited too.||
Their overall value to the program is fairly high. Getting Graham Glasgow to switch from OSU was big. Losing the LS to MSU in 2012 led us to spend a scholarship on the position in the next class. They are typically not a fallback plan in recruiting, but necessary for building depth across the roster.
