2019 MBB Recruiting: 6'6" G Cole Bajema

2019 MBB Recruiting: 6'6" G Cole Bajema

Submitted by ypsituckyboy on July 20th, 2018 at 10:05 AM

Beilein was out in the Seattle area watching him yesterday. Looks like Bajema may even be up to 6'7" now. Hhandles the ball decently for that size. Skinny as a rail and plenty of room to add weight. Not a superior athlete, but most of the video is at least a year old and the kid looks like he was a really late bloomer so it's hard to say where's he at now on that front. Gonna need to start that shooting motion higher and move it closer to his body, but, again, that's partially growth/strength related.

With DJ Carton committing to OSU (boo), Watts is another potential guard option for Michigan. Michigan joins Michigan State, Louisville, Florida State, UConn, Xavier, Oregon, and Missouri in his top 8. Watts is a 4*, #37 in the country according to 247 and a 4*, #38 according to the composite

I think everyone is a bit sad and confused about the news from yesterday, but this is Carton's explanation for committing to OSU. Still find his explanation a bit odd given that this definitely wasn't his first time meeting current players on the team, but what are ya gonna do. I hope enjoys losing ;)

I do not recall if this was ever posted to please don't waterboard me with cat urine if it was already posted. The search feature came up with nothing (not sure if it even works). But worth the watch if you want to hear things said by Webber .

There's been a lot of Duncan Robinson fluff lately, but hey, he's awesome, and it's the offseason. Plus, I'm guessing that I'm one of the few members of the MGoBlog world who has connections both to Williams College and to Michigan.

Former Louisville players suing to get 2013 banner back

Former Louisville players suing to get 2013 banner back

Submitted by trueblueintexas on July 11th, 2018 at 2:12 PM

Apparently former Louisville player Luke Hancock can't go anywhere without being reminded about his team's cheating ways and he can't stand it. 

Hancock and a handful of other former players are suing the NCAA to try and get the wins, banner, and yes, Luke's MVP reinstated. 

Maybe, in truth, he's mad they didn't give him any of the hookers and blow.
