I said JB was never a great recruiter.
|1 week 6 days ago||A couple things are damning:||
1. It really illustrates how stubborn JB is to evolve with the recruiting game. Offers are coming earlier these days from all top schools - nothing wrong with that. The examples given in the article state that unless you really love Michigan, you are likely not going to wait around for an offer and if so it probably won't be taken seriously. You have to really convice recruits that our process is a good process. Many don't which closes us out a lot of very good/elite recruits. Seriously, who care if someone visits or not before offering.
2. Despite JB's slow, deliberate and focused process, he has a very high level of transfers and flame-outs.
Putting aside a handful of rare exceptions, JB was never a great recruiter of basketball talent. Great recruiter of high character guys? Absolutely! Great recruiter of talent? Not really. A typical JB team is full of role player type guys that all work well together, but rarely strike fear in opponents and are often over-matched physically and talent-wise.
Unfortunately, unless he evolves his recruiting methods, he likely will never be a great recruiter.
But, I'll reiterate, there was a lot of good in that article as well. Very well balanced and informative article.

It is, in fact, our fundamental advantage. Its not up to us to determine what is necessary and what is not. Its up to us to ensure we maintain as open market as possible so that goods and services can flow freely between consenting parties and without coercion. This is how wealth and prosperity is created for EVERYONE.
Hats off to Phil Knight and Jordan, who clearly know how to make clothes that people want. They deserve the millions (billions?) they get for that. This is America! If you want a place that controls consumption, you can go to cold war central planning Soviet Union or present day China.

movie with Lara Flynn Boyle. A couple big UofM scenes in that movie. Not my favorite by any means, but wanted to add it to the list.

Just a couple posts above I said it was JB was a genius and thats if fine that it takes time to get used to his system - that's JB schtick- its OK. And I have never said a bad word about JB (other than I don't think he is a partucalrly elite coach) and I never said I wanted him fired. So fuck off.

...Smith: we haven't even offered. Young: I heard we are third for him.

I wouldn't be surprised if landed NONE of these.
Livers - 100% MSU ballz
Cain - You said yourself, we cooled on him (although, that's the first of heard of that)
Young - In decent shape, but definitely not a lock, not even close
Smith - Last I heard, we were third for him
|3 weeks 15 hours ago||Damn!||
Basketball recruting is so depressing compared to football. It seems like we won't land anyone we just offered.
