I believe he was fairly fluent overall coming over. I had a class with him second semester last year and he had no problems communicating at all, IMO. Only issues wtih colloquialisms/some slang and whatever that would be difficult to know if you didn't grow up in America. I believe that European countries all teach English from a young age and take it a little more seriously than our system does Spanish.

I see that you got some of these clips from that torrent posted on the board, and didn't get convert it to a different file format first, haha. Got some serious jagger.

Seems kind of an absurd decision to put a regional in Omaha, the 59th largest Metro Area in the country, tbh. First weekend sure. But regional?

Strong disagree. Michigan has been playing like an elite team for 15-16 games now.
They won the Big Ten Tournament despite some poor/mediocre shooting performances versus Purdue and Minnesota and are blowing out teams left and right.
This isn't a hot streak or a fluke.

They have about as good a chance as anyone.
Since the loss to OSU, Michigan has been playing like a 1 seed. Which is really quite incredible. Walton is outperforming Trey Burke over his past 15 games. They're playing top 30 quality defense. Everyone is playing well.
If they had been playing like this all year, they'd be one of the tournament favorites. What's holding them back right now is a 7 seed path.

In football, they honor every 4th or 5th year player at Senior Day no matter what and then make the final decision on their status post-season. And some players are honored at Senior Day for two years because of that.

Thanks, Brian. Appreciate the update and I look forward to the new site.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||There is plenty of room to||
There is plenty of room to put 1000 students if they wanted to. And size isn't even a big deal anyway. Crisler seats 12,700. Cameron seats 9,300. There are plenty of small arenas in college hoops that are good environments. The amount of people doesn't have an enormous impact on the loudness because you need less noise to fill a smaller space. Has much more to do with whether you're filling up the arena and how excited those people are.
We don't have an advantage because people aren't attending games...and those that are attending are not excited.
EDIT: Btw. Our overall student section was larger than Wisconsin's until this year.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Have you been to the Kohl||
Have you been to the Kohl Center? I was just there for the game a few weeks ago. Very mediocre arena. Not horrible, but nothing special at all. Doesn't come close to how beautiful of an arena Crisler is now.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||JB landing the 2012 Class||
JB landing the 2012 Class (which directly led to his Final Four, Elite 8 and second Big Ten Championship) was very much luck. No other recruiting class in his career has ever been close to that good as far as even just rankings go.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||This is incorrect. The||
This is incorrect. The MGoDepthChart lists the walk ons, but does not count them towards the scholarship count. We are at 88.

Trey Burke was a 4 star top 100 player.

Two more if he redshirts.

I know of Matt D from some other boards and he's mentioned this stuff before. His general thoughts on this are that the kids tend to not like how JB recruits because he does not stay in consistent contact with them during the recruiting process. Causes them to not feel prioritized/loved, and that they do not have a relationship with the staff.

Matt, what level of player do you think Dejulius is ranking-wise?
|14 weeks 2 hours ago||C'mon man. We got blown out||
C'mon man. We got blown out by 14+ in almost every major non-conference game (with Levert) and routinely got embarrassed against top competition. I remember how it felt to attend the Indiana and MSU games back to back in the Maize Rage. Last season was not fun at all.
Last season was disappointing.

Rice isn't gonna be what they used to be. That school is hemmoraging money and attendance.

The fouls they call on Wagner are absurd.

It only counts as an attempt if you make it.

Well at this point, we probably can't catch up to Georgia at 3.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||To be fair. Partridge's job||
To be fair. Partridge's job came a loooooong time after Pepper's commitment. Peppers committed to Hoke and Harbaugh hired Partridge.

WD missed him because he was listed as an Athlete (played QB in high school). http://247sports.com/Player/Jeremy-Gallon-16141?PlayerInstitution=26790
Just outside the top 300 overall

Seriously, Red Cedar is the worst message board on the internet.
They are all horrible people. How can you be THAT mad about it? Not only were there statements objectively horrible regardless of context, but there's no way they could legitimately believe they had shot anyway right? If Ambry wasn't going to State, then no one else is.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||It doesn't have anything to||
It doesn't have anything to do with Najee. It has to do with being the #1 RB and position switch concerns.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, he would be a truly||
Yeah, he would be a truly heart-wrenching cut as well. He's been all-blue for a while and very very vocal and passionate about it. Would be tough to recruit Georgia after that.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||I think you guys need to||
I think you guys need to realize that Chesson and Darboh were both 3 star recruits who were super raw and not natural pass catchers in high school. The fact that we got the production of them that we did is pretty great. Going into 2015, we thought our receivers were horrible.

Ace, section 130 of the student section has yet to be even close to filled all season. The most students we've had at a game is 657. More bleachers isn't gonna fix that issue.

This Texas team is reaaaaaaaaally bad

We don't have the talent to do that. Ohio State has years of 5 stars. Check out whose left from our 2014/15 classes. It is not pretty.

We're gonna have about 50 of our 85 scholarship players next year be 1st or 2nd year players.
This is an enormous rebuild that is probably unprecedented for Michigan.
