Getting to Know Moritz Wagner

Getting to Know Moritz Wagner

Submitted by Everyone Murders on October 23rd, 2015 at 8:42 AM

John Niyo has a nice fluff piece about Moritz Wagner's integration into the team and U.S. culture in this morning's news.  Not much more than fluff to the article, but it's nice to read about Michigan basketball, get to know more about a player, and to have no mention of recruiting shenanigans (shenanigans? - yeah, I said it!) in an article on MBB.

Interesting that he's up to 228 already (thanks, Chipotle - wait until he discovers BTB!).  Glad to see this young man aboard the team, and Beilein Uber Alles.

Of all days to coomit to Louisville, why today??? 

I guess, if your ready to commit there's no sense in "pulling out" of that commitment......

I figured we could maybe use this to make some Tuesday afternoon humor.

Keep it classy and clean

There was a bit of news about this a few weeks ago, but OTL is breaking this morning the extent of went on between 2010-2014.  Five ex-players and recruits speaking on the coniditon of anonymity. Looks really bad. Mike and Mike referencing on-campus parties with strippers, stacks of money, and sex with escorts payed for by a graduate assistant.

GRIII Update with the Pacers

GRIII Update with the Pacers

Submitted by Kevbot on October 19th, 2015 at 10:57 PM

Saw this article posted, and figured I'd pass it along. Pretty good read about Glenn Robinson III and his background. The Pacers signed him to a 3 year deal (1.5 yrs guaranteed) and he has been doing well so far this preseason. Nice to hear some positive stuff about him after his rookie year. Being a Pacers fan as well makes this even better. Hoping this will be a good roster/situation for him to continue developing and hopefully contribute. 

Through the 5 preseason games, he's averaging 23 minutes, 11.2 points, 4.6 reb, and shooting 56% (54% from 3, but only on 12 shots). I was pleasantly surprised to see how well he's played so far, and the quotes from the teammates are good as well.

NCAA discussing moving Men's Basketball season back a month

NCAA discussing moving Men's Basketball season back a month

Submitted by Lionsfan on October 14th, 2015 at 7:31 PM

I know, we're in the middle of Hate Week right now, but seeing as Beilein has made March relevant for UM again, I figured I'd share this with the board

Apparently, to avoid competing with football (both pro and college), the NCAA is in preliminary talks to start college basketball in the few weeks after Fall exams and before Christmas.

But the season cannot be condensed because of student-athlete welfare issues, so starting one month later means ending one month later. Conference play would commence after the Super Bowl, allowing more than 50 percent of the season to take place out of football’s long shadow. The NCAA Tournament would move to late April or early May, which is the most radical aspect of the idea.

Seems like a pretty interesting idea, to say the least
