Marginal players stand to gain maturity, physical and personal, without the pressure of trying to make it in the NBA. That's one big reason why they have a better chance to improve in college and may stall or regress after getting drafted.

They rendered at least part of the place unusable. Why would they not be calculating lost business?
|4 days 14 hours ago||Agreed||
This is definitely part of it. There's a rule that if you foul twice in the first half you sit, and I think it's a good rule.
I also however think it's a good strategy and don't under stand the negative fixation on it. If you have to play Dakich and Lonergan at some point I'd rather it be in the first half, as long as the game is within reach.

No one wants to hear it but the fact that they were within 3 in the seond half completely vindicates the strategy. They were undermanned and on the road. Keep it close as long as you can and try to pull it out.

you can say that again :) he was actually 83

I watched Star Trek from the first time it aired and this really feels like a crushing loss. One thing that's always surprised me is how little attention he gets for his role as Paris on Mission Impossible. I was also a huge fan of that show and it was great to see LM there after Star Trek was cancelled.

Or it could just be free enterprise. You're making some major assumptions about potential victimes etc. If it's what it's rumored to be it's really bad and I agree someone should come forth but so far we don't know.
The guy who's supposedly going to be breaking the story hasn't even seen it.

Sure hope not. And if there's any kind of licking involved I'll pass.

Chatman showed some nice flashes. He should get better as his confidence grows and today will help a lot.

When you factor in his dubious blocking and pass catching skills he could end up way down. He maybe could have done himself some good with a year of Harbaugh. Doesn't matter now.
|1 week 6 days ago||I wish this had ended before||
I wish this had ended before the last three paragraphs. It's a great summary and retrospective but that pushed it over a line. You don't want to risk becoming that which you're finding fault with.
Other than that I enjoyed it immensely - excellent read

I noted the same things and had the same reaction. It was exceptionally well crafted.
|3 weeks 19 hours ago||I don't know how fascinating||
I don't know how fascinating he is but definitely weird.
By now I assume he's stopped blaming all his problems on Jeff Meyer. Agreed he's a highly overrated coach. If something real good doesn't happen soon there it may get fun to watch.

One part of your post is sort of true - this reminder is not needed.

You would think they could at least use something approximating correct grammar, but then again consider the likely source.
It took me a minute to figure out what "a Stanford Wayne Lyons mom" was.
The rumored 4* 2016 son is also amusing considering how easy it is to identify in about 30 seconds any high school player with the slightest chance of being recruited.
We say ye should go play outside.

So is stealing your co-worker's lunch...so what are you gonna do?

I see you're paying attention...good. The real point is to not worry about who didn't come.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||You could really kill||
You could really kill yourself dwelling on players that didn't come to Michigan.
Also, for every one that didn't come there could be a really popular player who came in their place. Best approach is to recruit as best you can then roll with the players you have.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||How much is he really being||
How much is he really being screwed by a position coach leaving? Time to move on with the players we have, some of whom may end up being better than Weber.
Way too much stock is being placed in this kid.
|4 weeks 2 hours ago||I'm not a conspiracy theorist||
I'm not a conspiracy theorist but this clearly looks like a situation where they were doing whatever they could to keep him away from Michigan. It smacks of total sleaze.

You think the interview and hire all happened today? Seriously?
|4 weeks 15 hours ago||I didn't sense the panic||
I didn't sense the panic you're referring to but admittedly was not on here that much. It was always going to be a small class and the big names were always a longshot to flip. JH and crew did well.

I get what you're saying but think it's a stretch here. Maybe he just feels the guy who won the game for them deserves something really, really awesome. All this does is call more attention to the truck and make it more memorable.

I believe certain media requirements are in the contract, so yeah they actually did.

Nothing, but if you have a very high paying job with certain behavioral expectations you should expect that job to be at risk. He's free to do what he wants and accept the consequences.
