Makes a ton of sense. Added bonus, he's a ginger.

It'd be particularly easy just to flip UM/Wisc if that's the matchup. Winner get's the #1 in the East, loser gets #2 in the Midwest.

I don't think if there was movement matters, only if the defender gets in position with both feet on the ground before the player with the ball leaves his feet. In both cases it seems like a charge.
Art. 4. To establish an initial legal guarding position on the player with the ball:
a. The guard shall have both feet touching the playing court. When the guard jumps into position initially, both feet must return to the playing court after the jump, for the guard to attain a legal guarding position.
b. The guard’s torso shall face the opponent.
c. No time and distance shall be required.
d. When the opponent with the ball is airborne, the guard shall have attained legal guarding position before the opponent left the playing court.

Been cool to see a UM presence on All-Star weekend again. Can't wait till Nik dominates the 3-point contest. Actually I can wait like two more years.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||This will be the first time||
This will be the first time he didn't have the dominant program in the State. His team loses a lot this year and his recruiting has been mediocre lately. If he was going to jump ship this might be the time to do it.

Michigan obviously has the room and the only character flaw he has shown is that he wants to attend MSU. FSU had a couple of signing day decommits so I assume they have room. OSU was tight on numbers before a bunch of late signings, but I am sure Urbz would find a way.

Which is cheap ass Gores fault, could've amnestied him for the cap room instead of selling the draft pick.

I think it's between FSU and UM. We keep hearing he really wants to go to State, but I think reading between the lines his real favorite is FSU if he is allowed to go away for school. He may prefer the atmosphere at MSU over UM but if his parents and namely his dad let him make his own decision its FSU if it is a family decision UM is the choice. MSU or OSU may be the compromise choice, but if his dad is truly a Michigan fan it may be easier to let him go to FSU.

Probably would be on par with Lawerence Thomas. Rogers was recruited by Michigan but wasn't going to qualify made his recruitment a little murky. Carr definetly wanted him but it seemed like he was always a State lean. TJ was a big time recruit with a Michigan offer but nobody thought we had a chance because of Tico.

IMO, the end game of this isn't the earth shattering end of NCAA as we know it type of thing. Probably ends up with some kind of player advocacy framework within the NCAA.

All this Zack and Stu love let's not forget what really ignited this team was the development of Darius Morris and Beilein adjusting his system to take advantage of his talent.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||I doubt there is any||
I doubt there is any difference between the ability of an elite offense to plug in new players vs. an elite defense. I don't think the top defenses would be any younger than the top offenses. Defense can also be very complicated and take years to get really good in a system.

Snyder tweeted last night that it hasn't been ruled out, but he hasn't started his rehab yet and it is simply to early to tell. Sounds like a long shot, but if there wasn't a chance I think they would say he was done for the year.

Kenpom isn't suggesting that 3 point defense doesn't matter, just 3pt FG% allowed doesn't capture any of that. Unless you are late in the shot clock or Brandon Jennings you aren't taking too many contested 3 pointers, nor should you. Teams that are very good at defending the perimeter cause the other team to not shoot, not shoot and miss.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I find this comment||
I find this comment offensive. Calvin Johnson, Barry Sanders, Lebron James there is tons of black athletes who handle themselves with class and on the flip side sports is full of classless white athletes like the kid from Ole Miss or Bill Romanowski, Laimbeer, McEnroe etc. White player does the same thing last night and he is just as hated.
If you don't think what Sherman did last night wasn't classless you don't understand what it means to have class. As someone trying to raise a son that's something I point to as the wrong way to act regardless of the situation. I grew up idolizing the Bad Boys I get it, it's fun. Playing sports and I didn't always exhibit class it's not easy. But I don't think it's a bad thing to celebrate athletes that exhibit class when it's not easy and root against those who don't.

If there is a link I'd suspect it would have something to do with random luck regression (fumble luck, injury luck, close game luck,). I wonder what the numbers would look to like if you separated coaches replacing fired coaches vs. coaches replacing coaches getting promoted. I suspect coaches getting fired experienced bad luck and the next year there would be a regression towards the mean whereas coaches getting promoted experience good luck. I wonder what a team's average age/experience has to do with whether a coach gets fired/promoted.

You are cherry picking names, I can use guys who almost transferred but stayed like Chris Perry, Tom Brady or Devin Gardner. Certainly cuts both ways but in the end I prefer program with a low level of transfers, seems to correlate with winning.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Usually you aren't losing a||
Usually you aren't losing a starter to transfer, but at the same time you usually aren't using that scholarship on a kid that's much more talented either. If we have five more scholarships to fill those last five are likely going to be 3 star types. Especially in seasons when a bunch of guys want to transfer.
Take a kid like Jenkins-Stone who seems ripe for a transfer, unless Ross who is in his class gets hurt he has a tough path to start and has barely seen the field at this point. He could transfer without losing any eligiblity. RJS was always billed as raw but very athletic and needed weight. I'd much rather have him going forward than whomever the coaches get on this late.

Never thought of Doug but I like the idea of him getting the job. Life long Michigan fan grew up in A2 and has the reverence for the job don't know if he has the skills for the job. My first choice is Gus Johnson also grew up a Michigan fan and seems like he takes any job he's offered. He'd be expensive but worth it.

Has there ever been any talk about football being played in the winter games? The bar for importance seems a bit lower.

Eastern is such an awful job they might to take a shot with a guy like Hart.

I remember after getting stoned in 2011 looking at their 2 deep on defense and being deflated when I saw just how young that defense was. Mark D. has built a program that is going to stay good but I have little doubt that this was a high water mark.

A lot of basketball fans forget that half the game and thus half your value as a player is on the defensive end.
