If Moe Should Go

Where should Moe go, you know?

Ok, I apologize for that. But, what would your pick be for the NBA landing place for our favorite Berliner?

I'll take the easy one, and let someone more savvy think of something smart. Golden State, with all the shooting that they already have, could provide a unique opportunity: can you imagine the pick and pop, and probably offensive sets specific to the talent of that personnel set?

Ok, what else do you have for me?

I watched the World team beat the US squad at the Nike Hoops Summit yesterday. Ignas Brazdeikis had a line of 9 pts, 4 reb, 3 ast, 1 steal. Iggy can get to the rim and finish, proof positive was a drive & finish over Bol Bol. I was torn between DeJulius and Iggy, but I think Iggy will have a bigger impact next season. What say you?

Per Jeff Goodman

Siena, which is located in Albany, accepted the resgnation of Jimmy Patsos today. Patsos is probably best known as the coach who double teamed Steph Curry the whole game while he was at Loyola Maryland. They lost that game by 30. 

Did Graham Couch write a good article?

So, it looks like Graham Couch has now “turned” on Izzo/MSU. In the article he seems to realize that this is not a bunch of isolated incidents and that maybe there was some substance to the ESPN reports.

“If the school’s counselors aren’t believing victims of sexual assault and, instead, are protecting their alleged perpetrators, beloved athletes in this case, MSU is sicker than we realized.”

I think Izzo said after he lost to eleven seeded Syracuse that “You’re not breaking me, I know that.” Well if his biggest slappies and supporters in the media are turning on him too, what will break him? Is there going to have to be two, three, four more stories like this for something to happen?

I know people will say we post to much about MSU and I don’t care about them. Thought it was relevant after he wrote some stupid s*** after the ESPN report first broke. Just seems to be seeing everything in a different light now that more info/more cases are out there.

Basketball awards banquet was tonight

The basketball awards banquet was tonight, and I thougtht that I'd share a quick report.  As might be expected the crowd was definitely into it giving Beilein a standing ovation when he took the podium. 

The awards are mix of performance (MVP etc.) recognition voted on by both players and coaches as well as fun, non-basketball prizes (best dressed) voted on by the players alone.  Rakh and Wagner shared MVP while Simpson won the Steve Grote hustle, the best defender and most improved awards.  Duncan was named best 6th man (obviously not a shock), and best team leader. 

From the voted on by players only awards category Poole got best dancer (doing a few moves on his way to the podium as he picked up the award) and best dressed with Beilein making fun of his very short tie when he came up.  Duncan got an odd combination of the most likely to succeed and "talks most knows least" awards.  Duncan gave a nice senior speech about his first collegiate game being at Williams playing in front of 394, and his last game as senior being in front 80,000 in San Antonio and a worldwide TV audience.  Austin Hatch talked about how much he appreciated being allowed to stick around as part of the team.

A few of my family members are in the inner circle of the Davis’ family and I had heard before the tourney he wasn’t planning to leave but since it’s in writing now I figured I would share. As discussed in a prior thread, some may construe this as more evidence Moe is considering leaving.

“I’ll be here,” Davis said. “I committed to Michigan, and I’m not going anywhere. This season just showed me what I need to do differently.”
