|1 hour 54 min ago||It's me. I have the playbook.||
Wanna see it?
|2 hours 48 min ago||Burke and Stauskas ended up in bad spots as well...||
...Stauskas is a much better fit on the Cavs, Heat or even the Thunder where he can be a spot shooter and then "More Than Just A Shooter" as the 4th or 5th option.
Burke would've been better in a Norris Cole type role from the beginning. I still think if he was on the Pistons he'd be starting. Not saying he'd be any better, but it would be a better situation not having 2-3 other PGs that can start.
GRIII went to a team FULL of SFs.
Hardaway Jr. really was the only player that went to a team that fit. Put him on the Kings and I don't see him standing out in any sort of way.
...almost forgot McGary, he is in a great situation with the Thunder.
|15 hours 46 min ago||Good||
They had 12 SFs on their team.
Of course my next comment is about how he can now sign with the Pistons.
|15 hours 48 min ago||Agreed.||
What we have now is much better.
However, just for shits and giggles, I would like to see a maize M with a blue outline, just to see it. Not sure if I'd like it better, but I'd like to see the concept.
We have 125 versions of the helmet, can't someone get a concept floor design that just switches the colors on the block M and leaves everything else the same?

Clearly forgot it was picture day. That's 2 different blues or a black coat and blue pants. Either way...yeesh.
They probably told him it was "headshots" and then someone suggested a group picture and he's like, "wait, WHAT?"

They're 4th right now.
...but yes, they'll be 2nd in no time.
|1 day 3 hours ago||Dude||
They've got the best player in the world on their team.
Let's not act like this is Michigan surging into 2nd place after everyone wrote them off when they lost to NJIT and EMU.

You sir, WON the internet today with the 'z' on the end!
|2 days 1 hour ago||This mini-thread ^^^||
Gets it's perfectly. Couldn't agree more, well said because there's definitely a difference.
|2 days 12 hours ago||And what if Malzone and Speight just have more talent?||
Couldn't that be just as likely from what we've seen thus far?
|2 days 12 hours ago||The Morris stuff isn't surprising...||
For anyone willing to take off the maize and blue blinders.
He's had 2 starts and a number of other snaps and he's done absolutely nothing. He really hasn't shown anything other than he's faster than any of us realized.
We saw flashes from freshman at other positions and you see "okay, we have something here."
That doesn't mean Morris can't/won't be good, that's not what I'm saying. Plenty of guys develop late.
What I'm saying is there has been NOTHING to assume Morris is going to be good, a starter or anything.
He's still living on hype from his junior year of high school. It's not like you saw some flashes as a freshman and thought (give this guy some time...or give this guy a better OL and he's going to be a beast). You saw that in a young Navarre who really wasn't anything special. You saw that in a young Henne despite Hail Braylon and handing it to Hart 20+ times a game. Both guys still made some plays, converted a few first downs on their own, etc.
A young Forcier, a young Denard, a first year Devin all did the same thing. None were perfect, all at least showed you something that made you think he can play at this level.
Shane Morris hasn't had that, it was alarming how overmatched he looked versus Minnesota (pre-injury) --- Only Russell Bellomy was able to keep everything in perspective.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Rich Rod practiced faster than Carr||
Hoke faster than Rich Rod...Nussmeier was super duper fast and Saban never used it in games, so they bumped heads...now Harbaugh is SUPER DE DUPER FAST!!!
lol, same shit different day.
A comment on how Harbaugh or Durkin is "simplifying things and allowing (us) to play" in 3...2...1...
|2 days 22 hours ago||I'd do it...||
...no questions asked.
As long as the rims were legal and the ball was properly inflated and all that good stuff. I'd take the challenge.

Screw Duke. Go Blue. Go Heels. Go anyone who plays Duke (except Michigan's rivals...in that case, go meteor).
|3 days 4 hours ago||I thought this thread was just about hating Laettner||
...which is a true posbang in my mind.
|3 days 4 hours ago||Exactly||
Ol girl ran right at her...she got what she deserved.
Listen here homie. Come at the king, you best not miss.
|3 days 16 hours ago||AJ Williams?||
|3 days 16 hours ago||I'm being unrealistic||
...and I know I am.
But damn, recruiting under Harbaugh thus far has just been "average." I want Urban Meyer buzz, hype and more hype.
But again, I'm being unrealistic...and I know I am.
|4 days 20 hours ago||Yes.||
And drafted Connor Cook.
And signed Drew Stanton.
...sorry, I hate the Browns.
|4 days 20 hours ago||Question||
How come the people in the back never move in this .gif?
|4 days 20 hours ago||This 100%||
And my point wasn't that he was only considering Michigan because of Harbaugh...never meant that at all. I'm just saying it could've been a number of reasons beyond just the two the poster that I responded to swore by...
|5 days 24 min ago||Or he just doesn't want to come to Michigan...||
Or he just doesn't want to leave California.
There could be a million reasons why he no longer wants to visit. It's been widely reported that the only reason he was ever considering Michigan was because of Harbaugh and Stanford was his dream school and USC is his "hometown" school.
I bet if Harbaugh left Michigan and went to Washington, a good amount of this board would still go to Michigan (if offered as a 5* prospect) even though we all love Harbaugh.
And on't know how the cold could get to him when he's all the way out in California. That's a long way for Ann Arbor cold to reach him without him visiting.
|5 days 4 hours ago||O'RLY||
Did he say that?
...see I can be a dick and ask questions I already know the answer to as well. Difference is, I don't feel important because of it.
Nothing about that post was discrediting S&C coaches. If I say Russell Westbrook is playing like the best player in the world right now, that doesn't mean LeBron James sucks, it doesn't even mean he's not the best player in the world.
But I suppose you can twist anything if you want to.
|6 days 13 hours ago||This is going to keep happening...||
...until it kind of sorts itself out over time.
We're going to have 2 HUGE classes and 2 small classes.
It's just the affect of the past, this really isn't a surprise. We took a ridiculously small number of players this past year, it's obvious that coming up we're going to have to have a ridiculously large class to counter it.
I'd love to get to the point where we're consistently taking the same number of players, but that's just not going to happen. Not until we're good enough we can bank some of the scholarships from the large years to the small years and even everything out.
