|10 min 58 sec ago||With every B1G win from here on out||
we go further and further above .500 in B1G play.
KenPom moved us up to 44 from 49 immediately after the Minny win.
Our remaining schedule from weakest to strongest
KenPom rankings cited below reflect 68 of 143 games scheduled for today.
We'd get to 11-7 in the B1G by beating Northwestern at home and taking one of two against Ohio State and Wisconsin on the road. With Caris.
Huge, unexpected win, giving us a touch of breathing room.
|1 day 3 hours ago||Exactly.||
NBA teams will demand physicals, workouts, etc. If they don't get transparent answers, they always have the option to pass until Caris falls to pick numbers below his ability/those selected around him and someone decides it's time to take a chance. If there's uncertainty about the health of his leg, you pick someone else of his rough ability who is healthy.
|1 day 3 hours ago||Not only "conditioning-wise"||
but also timing, skills/execution, and team integration.
Remember how poorly Irvin shot early in the season?
|1 day 3 hours ago||I don't think it's something he can hide from NBA teams||
After all, NBA clubs have the option to pass on him in the draft. lIn the absense of a physical w/ X-Rays, an intense workout, etc., I would assume the worst if I was an NBA GM and I thought Caris wasn't being transparent to me about the health of his leg.

(most noticeably unwelcome these days to the SEC)
|2 days 19 hours ago||And Ohio State's B1G results look a lot like ours||
sans the Maryland win. (But they do have an OOC Kentucky win.)
Beat the crappy teams, lose to the good teams (plus transforming Wisconsin away), sit presently at 7-5. Unfortunately, the OSU game is six days away, so I'm guessing Caris will be only a part-time contributer by then.
|2 days 19 hours ago||KenPom has us @49 after the Minny win||
inclusive of 27 completed games of the 34 scheduled for today
Our remaining schedule from weakest to strongest
Methinks 1-5 (worst case scenario) would force a DEEP B1G Tourney run to have any chance at the big dance, 2-4 puts us in the middle of the bubble, while 3-3 (or better) puts us in pretty good shape.

|6 days 23 hours ago||MSU beat us largely via 14-22 three pt shooting||
hitting open look after open look.
MSU had 7 offensive rebounds, we had 6.
Donnal wasn't effective inside, nor did we shoot well outside. Tough to win under those conditions. Nearly impossible when you give up wide open threes all game to good shooting opponents as we have in the past two.
Playing defense like that gets you beat. Better hope NW and Minny can't hit the open shot. We could easily lose to either giving up that many open looks.

So in a few years, all of our games will be at noon? Old-timers & WD will love it.

Just last night, on the label of the skim milk that my wife drinks*, I covered "FAT FREE" w/ a hand-made, cut out "Candy-Ass" label. My wife howled "Vandalism!" this morning as she poured it into her cereal.
Nary a day goes by that a Jim Harbaugh joke/gag/prank isn't pulled in our house.
*I haven't been able to talk her out of it.

He was a joy to watch, on and off the field.

They need someone to be successful at player development. I don't know much about their new coach.

It was posted in jest, but seeing Harbaugh spring it on a team would be fun to watch
