In reality, I think 4th is probably the best we can do this year. At the end of the day, this is your typical JB team:
1. sub-par athletically
2. middling big ten talent with perhaps one guy that stands out talent-wise
3. no standout floor leader
4. average at best on defense
5. good to great (sometimes elite) coaching on the offensive side to partially mitigate the gaps outlined in items 1-4 above.

The way I look at it is:
2016 Walton = 2015 Walton
2016 Irvin = 2015 Irvin
(yep, I'm one of those that think that they Walton and Irvin hit thier ceiling)
2016 MAAR > 2015 MAAR
2016 Duncan = 2015 Duncan. I agree with you here - he's gotta find another part of his game to lean on.
2016 Moe >> 2015 Moe. This is really going to determine if we improve or not this year
2016 Donnal > 2015 Donnal. But that's not saying much.

I counted about 10 of them.
Eother way, good write up Alex. I think you captured the situation nicely.

...but they would need some good luck on their side. We lack talent to compete consistently with the top half of the big ten.
No way is this team going to compete for a Final Four, unless they do it in a George Mason type of way. I would love nothing less to be proved wrong on this. Not gonna happen.

|2 weeks 10 hours ago||I was going to post something similar...||
...but my point total (or complete lack thereof) won't allow me.
At any rate, a similar thing you can do on the off-week is look back at the MgoBlog posts back then. To do so:
1. In the site search bar in the top right, type in "2014 coaching fiasco"
2. Pick any post, then click on the "2014 coaching fiasco" tag at the top of the post. This will give you all post related to topic, including all Searchbits
3. Click on the first page to be sure you are starting from the beginning. Read everyone of them in order. Its awesome!
It starts right around the Minnesota game where Hoke wasn't fully aware. It was at this point Brian (and probably most of us) realized Hoke wasn't going to make to next season.
The most interesting (and entertaining) aspect of reading all those posts is watching the arc from "Harbaugh is a pipe dream" to "It's Happening!" to "It Happened!". Truly entertaining!

Perhaps Izzo is not great at utilizing athletic freshmen (neither is JB really). Then again, I don't think Izzo has ever recruited this well either. Instead of nitpicking on an Izzo flaw (of which JB is argueably worse that Izzo), look at the big picture. Do we really stack-up against MSU?
1. Talent: MSU>>>>Michigan
2. Athleticism: MSU>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Michigan
3. Coaching: MSU>Michigan
4. Experience: Michigan>>MSU
5. Team chemistry: Hard to tell, but I think its probably even
Izzo is not perfect, but he has a far and away better program that we have now. I wouldn't expect us to really compete with them any time soon. And you have to give him mad respect for that. A few years ago, everyone here thought the rivarly finally turned with JB beating Izzo rather consistently and Izzo losing out on key recruits. Izzo was more or less backed into a corner...but he fought his way out to resurrect a stale basketball program. I wish JB has that fight.

|4 weeks 1 day ago||Because the 12 year old kid was pointing a fake gun at people||
The kid removed the orange tip that signifies that it was a fake gun (have you seen the picture of the "fake" gun without the orange tip? It looks real). People called the police stating that someone was pointing a gun at random people. According to reports the kid reached for his gun in the waistband as the cops were arriving. Its a shitty situation no doubt, but its certainly NOT clear that the cops were of the "shoot first, ask questions later" variety, especially when a gun is involved.
Keep in mind that these cases have received a lot of attention and scrutiny from all angles. I would guess that choosing to not indict would have to come with a large amount of data and evidence to do so. Otherwise, we would see higher juridictions (i.e. the DOJ) take action. We haven't (yet).

But I found your question interesting. While people may have not agreed with my comment, I didn't present my comment in poor taste (i.e. swearing, calling people names, etc.). However, since it obviously counters the views of many on this board, you assume that I could get sent to Bolivia for it.
It really illustrates the general gestalt of the board these days: conform or go to Bolivia.

"Every time it happens there is a discussion about the fact that every month there is another video of a police offer shooting someone for no reason"
I don't know if this is true, but last I checked the VAST majority of these incidents there is a legitimate reason for it. In those rare cases that there is no reason, the cop gets his/her comeuppance (with some exceptions of course).
I fully support all who want to raise their fist for any injustice, but it seems there is not a whole lot of injustices in these cases.
There are those who disagree with me, fine, just be nice :)
