the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

Domino's pizza is hiring like crazy in IT.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Highlights|
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Highlights here:||
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I know||
We oversign in football. The sky is also blue. However, the norms of the football world aren't the same as those in the basketball world.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Umm||
Didn't you read what I just wrote? I know NCAA elig =/= IU elig. I'm saying that "IU eligibility" is one of those "standards" that is followed when convenient and bypassed when inconvenient. You sound like a ND football fan.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||LOL||
There have been attrition rumors for a while because IU has been oversigned since November.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||...||
Crean oversigned. No one appears ready to move and then **BOOM** MAGICALLY a guy decides to transfer. If you're saying you honestly believe the oversigning and transfer aren't related, you're laughably naive.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||ITH||
InsideTheHall is just not objective and tried to spin the Patterson situation as a basic "failed to qualify academically" scenario. Dude is a total homer (whereas I think Dylan at UMHoops is a bit more detached and brings a more perspective).
From what I've read elsewhere, Patterson met the NCAA minimum requirements, but Crean needed the scholarship so he basically made IU's faculty advisory committee intervene and deny admission since that was the clean way to drop him. I've got a bridge to sell you if you think a Cody Zeller-type recruit would be referred to that committee in the same situation.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Stop it...||
you're only going to make yourself look bad. Tom Izzo's six Final Fours, national championship, national championship runner-up, seven B1G championships, and sixteen straight NCAA tourney appearances will clown on you if you keep talking. MSU is a basketball powerhouse. Hate them, as you should, but respect them.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Daddy had $ issues||
Miami Heat had to buy his dad's house due to tax problems, which usually means you've run out of money.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||By the way...||
Ever stop and think why Hoke doesn't take transfers very often, even when highly rated guys are available?
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Gavin Schilling||
Don't think he's "signed" yet but he committed. 6'9" dude out of Findlay Prep (NV prep "school" that former UM recruit and current OSU G Amadeo Della Valle attended).
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Meh||
I don't think it's a sweeping assumption at all. 3 schools in 3 years isn't a good sign. There have been multiple articles on this in the past year or two. It was either Sports Illustrated or CBSSports that had a really good piece on transfers a year ago.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||No Thanks||
Don't want guys that jump around like this. Attitude often seems to be be an issue with transfers (not saying that he DOES have attituted issues just saying that it's often a problem). He had his chance and he didn't want to come here.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||...||
Is it just me or are self-taped reaction videos incredibly obnoxious due to the obvious self-importance of them? What in the world would make anyone think that other people would actually care about how they reacted to some game/TV show/etc? Not to mention the fact that people generally wayyyy overreact ton purpose since they know they're taping themselves. One of the worst things, in my opinion, to come out of YouTube.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||I'd take...||
I'd take Noel or Cauley-Stein in the first round, no doubt. However, guys like Poythress and Goodwin are a dime-a-dozen in college. 6'4" to 6'7" guys who are good athletes? That's basically any high major college foward. Those two haven't proven anything. I'd be pissed if my GM took either in the draft.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||But...||
look at how tired those sleeves made him. I bet that if he didn't have sleeves he wouldn't be sweating so much.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Does it really matter||
Does it really matter at Michigan, though? Our crowds, especially basketball crowds, are pretty lame compared to the rest of the B1G. I really wish that wasn't the case, but the wine and cheese reputation that our crowds have is pretty spot on. It's as if people find it beneath themselves to actually stand up and make a lot of noise.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||so freaking good||
they have a version of it at Ashley's (sans the sauce) although I think the bread Ashley's uses is too hard/thick. You want to go with something large, that can handle the toppings, but soft. I go with challa. Also, you have to use multiple cheeses. The mozarella gives it the stringy look but you need some sharp cheddar and maybe a bit of gouda to increase the taste experience.
Also, the sauce is killer. Something like 4 tbsp of mayo, 2 or 3 tbsp of ketchup, 1 tsp of italian seasoning, and 1 tbsp of white vinegar. Adjust for taste/texture (it can get soupy if you use too much vinegar).
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Grilled cheese||
with mozzarella, sauteed mushrooms and tomotaoes, on buttered and toasted bread, with some sauce made of mayo/ketchup/italian seasonings/a touch of vinegar.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||LOL||
Basketball isn't football, dude. A 2-3 zone defense isn't terribly complicated. You can get as detailed as you want with how to run it (i.e. how to defend the high post, how to bump cutters, etc), but I guarantee you they practice it every week in practice along with man-to-man.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Where||
Where did it say that it'll just go on forever? I didn't see that anywhere.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||...||
That survey may be longer than all the other surveys I've ever taken in my life combined. It was like I was lost in one of those mirror rooms.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||No leadership||
Someone, other than the coaches, needs to rip the entire team a new one about effort on D. I doubt anyone on this team will do that.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed||
Defense is almost entirely effort, especially when you're just playing man-to-man. It's not terribly complicated. You make it your mission to stay within 12 inches of your man at all times and Michigan doesn't even attempt to do that.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||...||
We don't play defense. We will make an early exit from the NCAA's unless we make huge strides in short order.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||...||
After all that decision and announcement hoopla, Lewan is gonna be totally bummed when he finds out that Coach Hoke isn't going to have him back for his RS SR season.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||I'd heard...||
his dad was broke. Didn't bother Googling it or anything, though.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Blouses.||
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Bowling||
Did you ever go bowling in the basement of the Union? Don't know why they ripped out the alley and the arcade, but it was awesome while it lasted.
