Henson was more talented. I know that sounds crazy, but he had a stronger arm and was more athletic. Brady made better decisions, though.
|8 hours 33 min ago||What would the point of that||
What would the point of that be? Keep the competition going, even if it's predictable who will win the job. When you're coming off a 7-6 season, no one should feel too safe about his spot on the depth chart.

Juiceman's not a college student. He was outed as a fake insider awhile back. I see he's now returned to put on more of his shtick.

I loved it. My only nitpick is that I wanted to hear even more of Johnny Most's slobbering against the Pistons' physicality. More of it here:
|19 hours 42 min ago||That was awful timing by the||
That was awful timing by the NBA, holding the expansion draft two days after the last NBA Finals game. They could have given us a few more days.
|1 day 8 hours ago||Oh yeah, I forgot that Isiah||
Oh yeah, I forgot that Isiah used to have his first name above his last name on the back of his jersey. Why did he do that?

Make it a four-year stretch - his most productive season statistically was in 2010-11.

What other position would he play? The 3? He has no perimeter game.
|3 days 9 hours ago||He also lost Erazem Lorbek,||
He also lost Erazem Lorbek, although I think he went to Europe instead of the NBA.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Fulmer had two losing seasons||
Fulmer had two losing seasons in his last four. That's tough for a lot of coaches to survive at a big school.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Berkeley puts athletics||
Berkeley puts athletics second? They just spent over $300 million renovating their football stadium.

I'm sort of happy we broke the record. No one will ever doubt how crappy this winter was now.
|3 days 11 hours ago||It didn't exceed 32 degrees||
It didn't exceed 32 degrees too much this past winter.
|4 days 9 hours ago||Being a journalism major, I||
Well, if you're claiming to be a Michigan student and a journalism major, that's definitely erroneous - we don't have a J-school.

But he hasn't declared, so it doesn't mean anything.
The deadline to enter is not for two more weeks.
|4 days 9 hours ago||It's the worst part||
It's not the most elegantly-phrased sentence, but I don't think it's grammatically incorrect (and I am also a stickler for grammar).
|1 week 6 days ago||So you'll be disappointed if||
So you'll be disappointed if he stays?
I absolutely wish him the best if he leaves, but I'm not hoping for it. As Nik noted, college can be the best time of your life.
|1 week 6 days ago||It doesn't happen too much||
It doesn't happen too much because teams generally want to try for a steal first, and then foul after that.

Albert White was only here one year before getting kicked off the team (IIRC). He went on to have a good career at Missouri.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Mitchell was a very heavily||
I think they were called the "Fresh Five."

What happened in the play?

Also, we went 15-17 in 2010, so it's not accurate to say that we "barely missed the tournament."
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Tim Duncan turned down||
Tim Duncan turned down lottery status (a couple of times).

The Hash Bash crowd (which is not all that big to begin with) and Michigan football fans don't really overlap that much.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I think a lot of us are sad||
I think a lot of us are sad just because it's over, not because we fell short of the Final Four. I just wish I could see this team keep playing, they're so much fun to watch.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Gotta disagree. When you're||
Gotta disagree. When you're down, you want to extend the game as much as you can. Shooting with 30 seconds left leaves you those 30 seconds to figure something out - whether it's to foul, go for the steal, whatever. If you dribble it down and take a last-second shot, that's it - if you miss, you go home.
If you're tied, you can dribble down, but not when you're behind IMO. Likewise, I suspect that if Stauskas or Walton had made the 3-pointer on our last real possession, UK would have quickly tried to score. (I'm still surprised Walton missed that one - he'd been shooting so well in the tourney and that was a great, open look.)

Wow, you stuck it out through all the dark years? Impressive.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I do agree about fouling||
I do agree about fouling Johnson, but it's tough - you don't normally want Morgan fouling. I think we maybe should have had Bielfeldt use up his fouls when he was out there. Make them earn it.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||We were going to use two bigs||
We were going to use two bigs sometimes if McGary had been around, but he got hurt. Otherwise, we've gone with one because none of our bigs have the perimeter skills required of the 4 man in this offense. You talk about our defense struggling, but if you put two bigs without perimeter skills in this offense, that changes it dramatically, and not for the better.

I think you mean "did a 180"?
