the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

|5 weeks 3 days ago||Exactly||
People reacting emotionally to sporting events, which in the grand scheme of things are quite trivial, is ironic and thus often amusing. We are not laughing at serious human suffering, after all.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||You missed that one||
It took me a couple viewings myself to see what Ace was referring to so I get why you did not understand. He was referring to the Syracuse mascot, who flopped over after the play.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||To the Kenpoms||
We have been a top 5 offense all year according to Kenpom and there are questions about the effectiveness of our offensive structure?
You ask why we don't "leverage the post to open up the perimeter". Beilein's offense does the opposite, by opening up cuts and drives to the lane with the threat of the 3-point shot. Seems to be working pretty well, no?
|8 weeks 3 days ago||This was a good strategy||
This move did work 70% of the time, but the REAL trick was starting at an icing face-off circle, skating across the goal mouth, and slotting in at the back post when the goalie couldn't keep up. That baby worked 100% of the time.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||I would like to take this||
I would like to take this moment to thank the heavens for Lewan's return. Imagine doing this thought exercise without him penciled in.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||I'm no expert||
But I think the hairstyle was just a fade, and not a high top fade, no? Whatever it was, I loved it in combination with the throwbacks.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||I could be wrong, but I||
I could be wrong, but I remember us running a 2-3 zone twice, giving up easy buckets inside both times. I thought we looked shaky with it.
Also, this is how I feel about McGary's improvement:
"You're getting it, Mitch!"
|14 weeks 3 days ago||My impression||
My impression is that he does not have a real strong grasp of the offense yet and thus breaks up the flow of our sets. He seems to over-dribble a bit when he gets the ball. It doesn't concern me too much at this point, freshman and all that. Just needs to learn not to force it quite as much.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||I miss Ray almost as much as||
I miss Ray almost as much as I miss the la liga games with their move to BeIN. sadface.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Anyone else see that he was||
Anyone else see that he was texting when they came back from commercial for the half time show. I think we now know what he was up to; trying to find where the party was at.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||oh I definitely get it||
that voice...it's agony inducing.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||I didn't check the game logs,||
I didn't check the game logs, but this has to be the 47th time this season that Burke has gone for 8 assists and one turnover, right? One impressive dude.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||As an I-95er, I would love to||
As an I-95er, I would love to have localish games in College Park and where ever the hell Rutgers plays. however, I agree that the matchups leave something to be desired.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||I'm sure bacari is a great coach||
but dude needs to work on his pregame speeches. The Purdue pep talk in the episode you're referring to, and the one from OSU were both a little lame...jmo
|17 weeks 7 hours ago||RIP||
in no way I'm I trying to make light of his passing, but we just watched the season five episode last night where Prop Joe gets killed before hearing about this. CSB, but kinda creepy. RIP.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||At least one will leave||
At least one will leave early, and I would consider that a huge coup. Even two departures means one of Hardaway and Robinson will return which would not be the worst thing.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||I hear ya||
but what is impressive about that dunk to me is not the total degrees of rotation but turning your back on the rim and finding it again mid-air. I remember doing that as a kid on a minihoop and it's tough.
Also, I'm in on GRIII60.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||He has potential certainly,||
He has potential certainly, but I don't see how he is a borderline lottery pick at this point. First off, as far as an NBA body, he certainly has the bulk, but at 6'6", he is on the lower end of the height spectrum for small forwards. He's an athelete for sure, but I'm not sure he is top 1%, which might justify being a lottery pick.
His contributions to the team are really valuable, but because Beilein is not asking it of him yet, we haven't seen him iso or dominate the ball and create his own offense. I have high hopes that he could grow into that next year, but we haven't seen him do it yet. And I am surprised that experts think he is worthy of such a high draft pick without seeing it yet, either.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||This assertion that Darius||
This assertion that Darius would develop better in the NBA as a likely bench player than with another year of college as THE MAN strikes me as questionable at best. I say this because that is frequently not practiced in other professional sports. Take european soccer: clubs routinely buy promising talent and then loan them out to smaller clubs so they can get first team minutes. They value game experience over practicing with the best players but only seeing spot minutes, and the latter is what Darius was signing up for.
Maybe this is not the greatest comparison, because these on loan soccer players are still practicing all day instead of worrying about classes, but there is apparently something to be said for seeing significant playing time for development.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||family skeletons||
I learned a little while back that my parents left the '79 Indiana game early and missed Carter's TD. I wish that I hadn't.
|32 weeks 4 days ago||yeah||
but their mascot was an alligator.
|33 weeks 6 days ago||word||
|33 weeks 6 days ago||maybe||
maybe Devin has improved significantly over the off season, but over his first two years, he didn't do anything to make me feel that he's suddenly an accurate passer who makes good decisions. So your pretense that he would be an obvious improvement over denard seems misguided
|33 weeks 6 days ago||take pictures||
I hear Bolivia is lovely
|35 weeks 3 days ago||Anyone else have the thought||
Anyone else have the thought that they should always schedule a tomato can for the first game so suspensions accrued over the lengthy spring/summer don't bite us for a big game like this year? kinda slimeball, for sure though.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||Its not a nickname but||
I can't stop myself from exclaiming "are we having Funchess?!" when he makes a big play.
|36 weeks 5 days ago||without checking||
this schedule looks incorrect
|38 weeks 4 days ago||eh...||
I don’t think you are accurately describing Brown’s main point. He is talking about the offense reacting to what the defense does after the snap, not before it, and more specifically, what the “read” player does. We do this with the read option where the DE is the player being read. He references the “stick-draw” play, which is basically the same thing, but the LB is being read, and instead of deciding between a handoff and keeping it, the QB is deciding between a handoff and pass.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||I know right?||
How is this not just a different type of read option?
|38 weeks 4 days ago||I seem to remember there was||
I seem to remember there was an interview a couple years ago with one of the astronauts on the crew and he debunked the myth. Someone could probably find a link for it.
