What's the alternative? Is Warde going to decide the basketball program can get more aggressive in recruiting?
If Warde is going to allow a culture change, then maybe not, but if he keeps the status quo that the bball program needs to be squeaky clean, then yes I am.
|1 day 9 hours ago||I hope he does. And if it's||
I hope he does. And if it's not Beilein, I hope he's right. Though I think it's only fair to note that Calhoun was a cheater and Ollie was already on staff. I hope Warde deserves credit in there that will foretell good things about what will be done at Michigan, but I don't think it's a slam dunk.

And Harvard is 184 in KenPom.

The program already knows the answer to that question. Michigan has no desire for the basketball program to wade into gray areas, let alone cheat. Frankly I'm surprised you think that's unclear.
|1 day 10 hours ago||In addition to being||
In addition to being staggeringly idiotic, as articulated by rob f, your post is also wrong about his recruiting whether by rankings OR results. Higher ranked recruits, more NBA players, you name it.

Because Beilein. That guy you want to fire.
|1 day 11 hours ago||It's also stupid to evaluate||
It's also stupid to evaluate a coach with as much tenure as Beilein has at Michigan by anything that happened prior to his arrival at Michigan. And what Beilein has achieved at Michigan is better than Michigan's had in 20 years.
|1 day 11 hours ago||I'm in the "talk that Beilein||
I'm in the "talk that Beilein is on the hot seat is idiotic" camp but that class, while good on paper, has underperformed to date.

I don't think that's a relevant criteria. Flag late in the regular season but then make the title game? Fine. Get beat by Charlotte but then win the conference by three games and make the Elite Eight? Fine. Not many teams ever are consistently dominant all year. Basketball isn't like football.
|1 day 11 hours ago||I don't disagree with the||
I don't disagree with the limited assertion that he's one great class, but if you pull in a Burke or a Hardaway's every year, then I don't think you Fire Beilein for it. Certainly recent recruiting trends are troubling but it's hard to evaluate, as guys like X are similarly rated as guys like Burke and Stauskas. I'm willing to give it time based on past success and the fact that the administration favors being clean over being elite.
|1 day 11 hours ago||Then why did you list||
Then why did you list Hardaway's separately in your original post? Your logic is inconsistent.
|1 day 11 hours ago||Since you made the comment||
Since you made the comment that blowouts matter. Just pointing out that the basis was inaccurate.
|1 day 11 hours ago||If you don't care about the||
If you don't care about the conference, only the tourney, then how about we at least wait for this year's tourney performance?
|1 day 11 hours ago||When did Hoke win the||
When did Hoke win the conference twice and play for a national championship?

And even if it was one, that guy is a first round draft pick and player of the year candidate.

He's having such a tough time competing in the conference. Except for the couple of times he's won it, neither with McGary playing.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Burke wasn't part of the||
Burke wasn't part of the class you're thinking of, nor Hardaway's. So...false.
|1 day 12 hours ago||This might be the dumbest||
This might be the dumbest comment I've read today, and that's a high bar.

As with most things, you're welcome to your own opinion. Why do you care what others think?
|1 week 12 hours ago||Kind of. You're thinking of||
Kind of. You're thinking of the issue of oversigning. This isnt awesome, but it's also still not oversigning. Oversigning is running guys off the team prior to their graduation that are already on it because you want to bring in new recruits.

Don't be ridiculous...you don't subtract 100%. Otherwise Hawkins would be zero.
No....it's that, since Elliott committed four times, the denominator is 400%. So he was only a shade over 25% committed.

I give that 40 time TBD fakes. Congrats, Brian and family!

In spite of that, it's harder to get into than Michigan. Dat California stat (grades, test scores) inflation.

I'm not saying I'm against the change, but these are bad analogies. The NFL doesn't require ANY players to be two way players, why would it require kickers to play middle linebacker? And in hockey, every player plays both offense and defense. Having a DH isn't like asking the goalie to play right wing...it's like subbing the goalie for a better skater on change of possession.

Then it really is the #HokeEffect. Thank you, Brady.

In a relationship.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||The fundamental issue that I||
The fundamental issue that I think you misunderstand is that "playing time transfer" implies it's the kid's decision. If it's the coach's decision (for non-fifth years), then yes, that's oversigning.

If Onwenu is 360 tall, then he should definitely play WR. Tacopants, anyone?

Is history the degree Harbaugh wanted and was talked out of?
