maybe it is because I am old and lost interest in the NBA about the time Nash came along. Spike definitely knows how to play the game though and will be a huge part of this team all year
|23 weeks 8 hours ago||Attention to detail||
It is clear that Yost (and Bo later on) had this fanatical attention to detail. I have no sense that this attention to detail still exists.
Fielding only 10 players two plays in a row would have resulted in Brian Kelly level red-faced explosions and probable firing/demotion of those responsible. Now it is 'Well, that's on me and I have to do a better job of coaching" How have things changed so much, so quickly?
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Last 4-5 years||
When I look at Iowa last 4-5 years it's not too different than our last 4-5 years. Is Hoke on same coaching level as Ferentz? If so, is that good enough?
|25 weeks 6 days ago||Seems too easy||
I don't know much about these things, but it seems odd to me that a physically overmatched ASU team can run a play where:
DT and MLB play poorly = 11 yd gain
DT poor and MLB good = 6yd gain
DT and MLB good = 3 yd gain
Is it just because we were in vanilla D with no adjustments as Brian mentions or is it normal for a team to have plays where 3 yd gain is the expected worst case?

Daughter's friend from Toronto is visiting and we are headed for a long weekend to show her the good ol USA
|51 weeks 6 days ago||top 3 seed better than worst 2 seed?||
If I understand correctly, the brackets are designed so the 'best' of each seed is supposed to play the 'worst' of their opposing seed (e.g. best 3 seed plays worst 14 seed in opener and worst 6 seed in next round).
Could it be better to be matched against the worst 6 seed instead of drawing the best 7th seed if we make it up to the 2 seed line (assuming we would be the 'worst' 2 seed)?
It seems like a team that gets 'screwed' with a lower seed than they think they deserve could be in that best 7th seed slot and have a chip on its shoulder.

Good one to watch with the missus

Stafford was at the interview and has input into the decision. Maybe now that he has met Stafford, Whis thinks Stafford is a jerk and/or not committed to changing/learning/improving.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||5th Yr SR >> True Soph||
I don't know of any examples of a true sophmore replacing a 5th yr senior with several school records and instances of carrying a team to victory almost single-handedly (ND).
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Stars from outside top 250||
Quick look shows only Ryan, Fitz and Gallon that came from outside top 250 to be true stars. Recruiting rankings aren't everything, but you can't have a team full of stars without highly ranked recruits.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||My daughter is 13||
We were in Atlanta for the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 games and had the pleasure of staying in a pub past curfew for minors so we could finish watching the game, connecting with complete strangers just because we had the same shirt on, and watching one of the most amazing comebacks in recent history.
I was in Berlin for the Final Four game but she watched it on her own and we texted throughout. Keep in mind she had virtually no interest in sports until about 2 years ago.
Last night she got to see her old man singing the fight song, jumping up and down (in delight and anger) and even slipping a few choice cuss words that she had never heard escape my lips.
All of this will be a lasting memory for me and I hope for her as well.

|1 year 52 weeks ago||LeVert's feet||
Earlier poster implied LeVert wasn't as good as we thought on defense and then mentioned Burke has better feet. To my eye, LeVert is particularly good at closing out on the perimeter without overrunning and getting out of position (he closes and stops/contests the jump shot without fouling and is still in position to stop the dribble). But I admit I know little about the finer points of the game so am curious what others think.

First thing he mentioned was getting Derrick Green. I think it's kind of a big deal with the staff.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Question about talent mix||
Is it better to have all polished 4 and 5 star recruits or to have a mix of polished 'stars' and unpolished 'projects'? It seems to me that players like Stribling and R. Dawson are good to have because they have lots of upside and motivation to improve. They will push and maybe even overtake the more polished players. If they don't ever make it to that level, they may be more willing to be a backup/special teams player than a 5 star kid would be.

|2 years 11 weeks ago||good point||
good point. I was just trying to bring some perspective so we consider the situation before criticizing the poor judgement of some of these young men
|2 years 11 weeks ago||the hood and entourages||
Nice to see all the advice about what these athletes should do, but I'm wondering how many posters can truly relate to the situation. I know I can't but I also choose not to give advice on the matter.

what happpens the first time he comes across the middle? Do guys remember this recruiting stuff when they are juniors and seniors?
|2 years 13 weeks ago||Thank you for the wonderful post||
I rarely post comments but was truly touched and inspired by your post. Keep up the fantastic attitude and I am sure you will do great at Wayne State and in Med school.

When I saw this sentence ... Last year, Brady went for the win against ND ...

Maybe I'm missing something but seems like he should be more like 9 or 10 as Magnus suggests

Closer than you expect
|2 years 22 weeks ago||What about TCU?||
Should be a winnable, yet relatively tough game. Might help recruiting in Texas too

I am generally afraid to post because there seem to be a lot of rules. I knew the sticky posts were there, but a thread like this is a good refresher and has lots of new (to me) info also.

This should be good for Morris. A snub at Elite 11 to get him motivated and then some love from Rivals to keep his ego up.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Hart, Long and Graham||
Would not have voted for Long until I saw MillerTime's story. Will vote for Molk next year
