You're right. We should probably stop thinking critically about all things until the different dimensions things is possible.

I'd have to say yeah
|12 weeks 2 days ago||the difference||
While the offense the last couple years hasn't been what it was with Burke and Stauskas, it is sitll way more advanced than what Michigan ran under Amaker. JB's offense has pick and rolls, dives to the basket, and ways to draw the defense away from players to get them open. Execution hasn't been as strong, but there is a system in place to try and help generate open looks.
Amaker's offense was maddening. Literally, players would just swing the ball around the perimeter the majority of the time with no off the ball movement. There was very little cutting, they did nothing to move the defense, and that would be followed by a dependency on someone (Daniel Horton, Dion Harris) with a decent amount of talent trying to create a decent look out of desperation on almost every possession.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||yeah, but...||
the fact that many of those highly rated players didn't improve (some seemed to regress) under Amaker was the problem. That, and an offense that seemed to consist of passing the ball around the perimeter followed by one guy trying to get off a pull up jumper...

The NCAA will put an end to this effective immediately.

easy there with the blanket statements, clown.

I went onto youtube to search for video of the incident, but I couldn't find the clip.

They have bigger plans. Dantonio will conduct spring practice in Andromeda to appease his recruiting base...

I don't think necessarily obvious that this was Harbaugh's plan going in. With judging one way or the other, it could be realistic that he thought the process would take longer and that the early commits were guys he wanted to build with early. The season exceeded most outsider expectations. Doing so may have opened up doors to recruits that seemed unrealistic to the staff originally.
If the 2017 class is handled the same way, then you can say it's a pattern. To say otherwise is rushing to slap a label on something. We may see a very different and more selective strategy with the next class.

Let's not pretend this is admirable.

Is it time to resurrect the "MSU recruits intergalactically" meme???
|38 weeks 4 days ago||options exist in the distribution||
While no team is going to put up 100 3's per game, a sound offensive philosophy will skew towards getting as many high efficiency shots as possible. On every offensive possession, a team will have multiple opportunites to take a shot. Teams run their offense unitl they get a shot that they're happy with and take their chances with it.
Anyone will take a layup given the opportunity. An open 3 for a solid shooter is something most teams will live with in their distribution. Long 2's should fit into the "only if we can't get anything else" category. The higher percentage of quality looks, the better off you're going to be.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||disagree||
not saying Rip was incredibly inefficient, but "definition of efficiency" is probably overstating it a bit...
|38 weeks 4 days ago||true||
They matter, but guys like LaMarcus Aldridge are the exceptions that prove the rule. Very few players at any level can hit that shot with enough consistency to make it efficient. Even Aldridge has started spotting up from three more often in the last few years of his career.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||hmmm...||
Because mid-range two pointers are all the rage now?
I'd rather see him use his size at the hoop like he did against Duke a few years ago and knock down shots from beyond the arc.
RIp was fun to watch, but his game wasn't really all that efficient.

Highly recommend going to the breweries for St. Arnold, Karback, and 8th Wonder. The former two have really good food, and all three have different variants and beers they're experimenting with available at the brewery. Buffalo Bayou could be worth a visit as well, but I've never been...
