I'll remember you when one of the punt team gunners runs down a returner just before scoring a return TD, strips said returner, and proceeds to return it 99 yards to the opposite endzone.

I wasn't saying they were interchangeable, but either one works with the PB and Cheese. We were limited to whatever our moms had in the fridge. I'd eat 7 jars of PB a week during football. Those were the days.

Tortilla chips with microwaved cream cheese. Tortilla chips with chicken salad used as dip (not the crap chicken salad with raisins or whatever, the type that is mostly mayo and chicken).

Peanut Butter, Miracle Whip (or Mayo), and American cheese slices. My buddies and I would eat about a loaf of bread, a jar of PB, and a jar of miracle whip during 2-a-days in football. It helped keep weight on, and it's oddly delicious. We also ate a ton of Dorito and Mayo sandwiches (really delicious).

#4 was better. He got locked into a tripod for a second or two. Had to kick his way out of it.

Blows. Maybe it'll have less of an impact if the team really is moving to more of a spread offense. Still blows though.

I wouldn't be crushed if he was eliminated from the offense altogether either, so don't get me wrong. I like what X and MAAR have been doing lately, and I like seeing Walton get some run at 2 guard to give him a "rest" while X hounds the opposing PG on defense and creates off the dribble for the offense. There was a time when Zak was more Robinson-like. His freshman year he shot 4 threes a game at a 42.5% clip; sophomore year was almost 7 3PA/game at 35.5%. That was when he was more of a wing shooter. The last two years he became more of a focal point of the offense and had the ball in his hands more. The results have been jr year 4.6 3PA/game at 29.8% and sr year 4.0 at 31.7%. He just needs to be a wing shooter like Aubrey Dawkins was. Not a guy who handles the ball like THJr or Stauskas.

I think you can tell by who is controlling the ball at the end of the shot clock, and who is running the pick and roll. It's not Irvin anymore. That's why we're not seeing nearly as many long twos from Irvin, or drives to the lane where he gets swatted at (or more accurately, below) the rim multiple times a game.

Basically, I viewed Irvin and Walton as being options 1A & 1B during the first half of the season. The success of the team (and offense) were directly tied to whether or not Irvin was shooting well. Lately, Walton has been option 1. The 2nd option is whoever he chooses to run pick&roll with, post feed to, or kickout to -- whether that be MAAR, Irvin, Robinson, Wagner, Wilson, etc.. Irvin and Walton aren't trading off possessions anymore like they're Kyle Lowry and Demar DeRozan. It's leading to much a more consistent flow of offense, with fewer scoring droughts. Hopefully Zak can get back to where he was as an underclassmen where he can get hot and give you multiple 3's from the wing when he's hot, but he doesn't heave 14 missed shots on nights when he clearly isn't on his game.

No, it was Irvin's team one possession and Walton's the next. There would be possessions where Irvin would dribble the air out of the ball ... or Irvin would try to run some half-assed pick and roll and end up with a fading jumper from the elbow ... or Irvin would have the ball with the shot clock winding down and shoot a 30 foot jumper. It has to be Walton controlling everything, and Irvin needs to be Duncan Robinson with better defense -- strictly a kickout shooter who can get some backdoor cuts when the defense falls asleep. The only other guys that should be dribbling the ball around the perimeter are MAAR when he wants to drive, or Xavier when they're letting Walton play 2 guard. The days of letting Irvin try to find his shot need to be over. You can't let him go 1 for 14 and 0 for 8. If he's off, bench him.

If Beilein is committed to making this Derrick Walton's team and reduces Zak Irvin to a rotation role player, then I think we can get in.

The postgame comments of Tom Izzo, if Tom Izzo couldn't coach basketball at all. Almost the entire B1G would trade their talent for IU's talent -- even with OG injured. The problem isn't the players, it's the guy (trying) to coach the players. He's a bum who basically had his career launched by one player, Dwayne Wade. He's basketball Charlie Weis.

Someone needs to make a scrapbook of all the times that he's prefaced an excuse by saying that he's not making excuses. It seems like nearly every loss.

Didn't read the link. Hopefully it says that he's transferring back to Michigan, after the transfer to UCLA/USC.

Somebody that can recruit, or at least values athleticism when identifying recruits. I'm over Beilein's never-ending pursuit of Kevin Pittsnoggle 2.0.

He's the only guy that brings it EVERY night. If he had the ability to finish inside the paint, he'd be a stud. His 3pt shooting and rebounding is outstanding.

Who is leading the team to victory? Mighty Mouse Simpson? MAAR? The dropoff from Walton to the next option as "floor general" is going to be drastic.

Juwan Howard. I have a feeling he'd be a great recruiter. He was a key recruiter of the other Fab Five members, he seems like a good/fun dude, and he's been on some great teams, players, and coaches. He also has a connection to Chicago, which is a recruiting goldmine.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I really, really, really like John Beilein.||
I really, really, really like John Beilein. However, I want him gone. College Basketball is about recruiting, and he can't recruit. Beilein could win with Duke or Kentucky's roster, but not even Coach K or Calipari could win with Beilein's players. My point being, you don't even give yourself a chance if you can't recruit; even if you're a great coach. Beilein has recruited good players, but they were mostly "hidden gems". You can't count on that strategy. For every Trey Burke, there are two worthless, undersized big men or non-athletic wings.

What video was she upset about (regarding the Georgia staff)? I'm not seeing the connection between the "staff" and the F Michigan video, if that's the video being referenced.
