|3 days 13 hours ago||Blame Billy Donovan.||
Williams was going to take a trip to Florida before visiting here. With him gone, things are speeding up.
|4 days 12 hours ago||The silly comment prompts a question.||
Has Beilein redshirted any guards or wings here yet? Caris had his lifted mid-season and I can't think of anyone else.
|4 days 17 hours ago||Forgot about Stevens. I hope he stays in the NBA.||
Donovan's a good coach. I bet his next NBA run will be longer than his last. Even Tarkanian had that beat.
|4 days 18 hours ago||I'd take that bet.||
Who was the last college coach to experience immediate success in the NBA?
|4 days 18 hours ago||Agree with your first point.||
I'll agree with the your second too, if Williams takes the visit. It sounds promising, but scheduling a visit now and waiting until then to commit are not the same thing..
|4 days 19 hours ago||If that was really the issue, the SEC would simply change||
their rule. In fact, they would have already done so. If the NCAA doesn't end these satellite camps, the chances of the SEC keeping their rule is 0.0%
|4 days 19 hours ago||On the subject of flipping.||
There could be some rules put in place to restrict contact with committed recruits, dependent on a request from the recruit. There's also the possibility of an early signing period that the Big Ten would need to have paired with earlier official visits like in basketball.
|4 days 19 hours ago||So, the SEC isn't asking the NCAA to adopt their rule?||
I must have missed something. Like even the slightest peep from SEC coaches about changing their conference rule.
|5 days 13 hours ago||We're probably going to have 13 players that can||
contribute. Several of them won't be in the rotation, so there's a real chance that a pretty good player or two will redshirt. Fall practices should be very interesting.
|5 days 17 hours ago||18 and counting now, including two from Kentucky sites.||
|5 days 23 hours ago||Then why is Cal in his top few schools?||
If he was like most typical one and dones he wouldn't even be considering them (or us).
|5 days 23 hours ago||Here's an article on point from UMHoops.|
|6 days 11 hours ago||Manny was a 4* recruit, a top 40 type.||
Deshawn Sims was a higher 4*
|6 days 12 hours ago||Jerod Ward was ranked #1 in his class.||
He was also a bit of a surprise commit coming from the deep South.
|6 days 15 hours ago||No visit, definitely no offer.||
He talked about visiting last summer, but Beilein did not bring him in.
|6 days 19 hours ago||What question is that?||
They just had to go through a process and have the Big Ten sign off on it. It was routine.
It's irrelevant when or where the injuries occurred.
|1 week 1 day ago||Huh?||
He's pulling in monster classes without them. He has less interest in other midwest schools benefiittng from these camps than anyone.
|1 week 2 days ago||Ventura was already in my favorite baseball fight.||
He got pummeled by the oldest player in baseball when he charged Nolan Ryan.
|1 week 3 days ago||Makes sense in theory, but are those guys actually doing that?||
There aren't many crystal balls on the site for recruits to flip.
|1 week 3 days ago||There's no major incentive for Webb here.||
At least I can't see it. There are so many recruiting stories to follow .This one isn't particularly high on the list and Sam hasn't been pushing it. If you were talking about Jaylen Brown, maybe. Sam's not always right, of course, but does anyone have a better track record with their predictions?
|1 week 3 days ago||If a player participates in multiple sports including football,||
the scholarship always counts against football. If he plays basketball, but not football, it always counts against basketball. It's automatic, according to NCAA Rules.
|1 week 3 days ago||Probably not quite that high, but easily the highest||
percentage for football.
|1 week 3 days ago||There's about 4 times as many players in the NFL||
as in the NBA. The numbers change drastically when you compare the spots for specific positions though.
The NBA pays better and has no-cut contracts. Basketball players can also make a good living overseas and can start their pro career sooner. If we're talking abut the #1 basketball player in his class, the decision should be a no-brainer.
|1 week 3 days ago||UNC's scandal involved more than athletics.||
It brought the academic integrity and administrationt of the school into question. At a minimum it did a lot of damage to one academic department. While everyone could agree that it was a bad thing, agreeing how to fix things is not so simple.
|1 week 3 days ago||I can't imagine it's actually going to happen,||
but if fall classes were cancelled that would be the biggest university news story of my lifetime. The NCAA would make all of their athletes able to freely transfer and be immediately eligible. It woulld amount to a self imposed death penalty in all sports.
I don't see how any of the discussion needs to be partisan. That's the type of scenario that practically no politician would risk.
|1 week 3 days ago||I agree. Mental toughness is probably the most important||
attribute in many competitive endeavors. It is in my field. Very few of us acquired it from football.
|1 week 4 days ago||Obviously the coaches can't comment on recruits,||
but Harbaugh was recruiting other QBs hard while DeWeaver was committed. That seems to have stopped with Peters in the class.
|1 week 4 days ago||How about the quality of life of their families||
that take care of these former players? This money could make a lot of difference to them.
Nothing is preventing the NFL from donating another $1B to go into research. That makes an awful lot more sense to me than saying the the former players should be making that contribution.
|1 week 4 days ago||You can't hold on to what you don't have.||
GRIII committed very, very early. Beilein was on Kennard early too, but he was always more interested in getting other offers. He was gone the moment Kentucky showed interest. Booker was never close to committing, probably never even leaning towards Michigan.
|1 week 6 days ago||Questioning is one thing. Perspective is another.||
When you say silly things like "Everyone is OK with Michigan football being irrelevant. I'm not." you're doing nothing more than begging for negative comments. You're basically attacking everyone who doesn't join in your criticism.
Let's be honest. We can't have an informed opinion about how good a prospect this kid is. There's practically nothing for us to go on. Harbaugh and his staff do know more than his stats from last season. I, for one, am going to assume that he's seen something that made him offer so early. Most of the 2017 offers have been to very highly regarded prospects. You're welcome to disagree and claim it's only because his father played for Bo. However, we should both hope I'm the one who's right.
