ish wasn't making that claim—he was questioning an assertion of the OP, who mistakenly said of Brundidge, "He barely played at Michigan before being kicked off the team."
|1 day 16 hours ago||More than one knee injury||
Ward tore the meniscus in his right knee in January of his freshman year and then suffered a torn ACL in his left knee in December of his sophomore year. He was still a pretty good college player, but the injuries prevented him from living up to his high school hype.
In the spirit of the "Where Are They Now" diary, Ward now works as a trainer somewhere in the 734 area code through his company called JW Pro Ball.

Even more recently in basketball than the Fab Five, Jerod Ward was the #1 player in the 1994 class.

Blanchard is one of my favorite Wolverines of all time. Only Michigan player to lead the team in both scoring and rebounding all four years—and only the fifth in NCAA history.

He's a free agent trying to catch on with a team. Morris recently worked out for the Grizzlies, after being waived by the 76ers with whom he had signed a partially guaranteed contract over the summer.

Maceo Baston is managing a cupcake shop in Royal Oak with his wife. His son, Maceo Baston Jr., is a 6-5 senior guard at Detroit Country Day.
Jerret Smith just began his first season as head varsity basketball coach at Romulus, the high school he attended.
In regard to baseball, the Michigan staff does a good job of tracking former players on their Wolverines in Pro Baseball page.
EDIT: Anthony Wright is the head varsity basketball coach at Linden High School.
Blake McLimans began playing a graduate year at Miami (Ohio), starting four games, but he's now left the team:
|4 days 20 hours ago||Scrolling through the history||
Scrolling through the history book online, I found that Michigan actually hosted a holiday tournament at Crisler called the Michigan Invitational each year from 1970 to 1975. They played Harvard, Wyoming, Ohio, Toledo, WMU, Toledo, Yale, Bowling Green, Virginia Tech, Manhattan, Southern Illinois, and Miami (Ohio), losing just one game. The 1970 program (currently available on ebay) went for a quarter:

Not saying this should happen for a men's game, but it's now possible to create a more intimate atmosphere within Crisler itself with the curtain that's used for women's basketball games. Capacity with the curtain down is about 6,000. For those who haven't seen it, it comes down around the upper bowl, leaving just a few rows of seating available up there.

I don't know that an increase in the minimum to start a thread is really needed. While the scenario you raise is certainly possible and may ocassionally happen, I don't remember that being a big problem the last time this moderation system was used here. This system isn't perfect, but it does cut down on trolling within threads, which should free up the mods to concentrate on quickly recognizing and deleting "terrible threads."

And most recently, I'm pretty sure, I Have a Gnarly Face, who was just deep-sixed in the last couple days.

Well, I'm not happy about the color of the up button. It should be blue.

Great to see those buttons back. They've been sorely missed.

As I think I've said before, Bakich looks like he has the team on a path back to the top of the Big Ten. As alluded to above, it's pretty difficult for a team from the Midwest to be a national power in baseball, but Michigan under Bakich seems likely to occasionally make it to Omaha.

It seems unlikely that he'd give up whatever scholarship money he's getting to be a football walk-on. After he committed to Michigan, Romano pursued getting a football scholarship but apparently never got an offer to his liking. All indications are that he's fully committed to baseball at this point.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Is there a "not" missing from||
Is there a "not" missing from your first sentence? From what I recall, Hoke has a policy of not letting freshmen play others sports. I assume that policy will apply to Andrew David, if he does decide to try to play baseball as well. But Hoke does allow scholarship football players to play other sports starting in their sophomore years.

Sorry, I'm confused—who's the second one, besides Andrew David?

Possibly of interest—Damien Harris named Gatorade's Kentucky Player of the Year—a nice honor as the Gatorade awards are based on more than just athletic achievement.

The full statement put out by Brandon can hardly be derided as "the dreaded vote of confidence." See for yourself here. Pretty smart to mention New Jersey in this paragraph:

You may not be able to stop people from posting this, but that doesn't mean threads like this shouldn't be deleted as soon as possible after they're posted.
Completely agree with your point about recruiting. This site is full of people obsessed with recruiting, yet you have people posting this kind of garbage and lots of other ones, such as the one about whether one should boo the team on Saturday (do people not realize how that might affect all the recruits in attendance, putting aside how stupid it is otherwise?).

Someone who loves Hoke doesn't start this thread.

Completely agree with Bando on this. If those banners ever go back up, my days as a Michigan basketball fan will be over. You have to draw the line somewhere.

ASGR revised their recruiting class rankings, with Michigan still #22, even with the addition of Stapleton (see below). Not sure why the comment about Stapleton's health. She suffered a knee injury a couple years ago, but I haven't seen anything saying she's been injury-prone.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I completely agree that||
I completely agree that there's been way too much conjecturing about Hatch over the last 2+ years. I remember numerous people declaring flat out that he would never be able to play basketball again—at any level. Well, they were completely wrong. He could have played for his high school team last year, and at some point this season he'll play for his new school. He decided last year not to play because, while had been medically cleared to do so, he didn't feel like he had made enough progress to justify being on the floor and taking minutes away from his teammates.
Basically, we'll just have to wait and see how much more progress he makes. He's shown some flashes of the basketball player he used to be, as the beginning of this article shows:

Ohio State is again mentioned as showing interest in her:
