MSU AD advises Burke to not use his advice. Sparty On.

@Trey_Burke3 My advice, believe in YOUR heart & mind, everything else is interference. People u seek out is better than those that seek u.


Let me get this straight.  Mark Hollis sought out Trey Bruke to advise him not to listen to people who seek him out?  Classic Sparty.

" People u seek out is better than those that seek u." 

what is u?  Is this some sort of algebra problem hidden in a poorly formed sentence?  Or maybe he has a 13 year old daughter who was on his twitter account. 

I was hoping I wouldn't have to encounter people who still type "u" after high school... although I guess MSU and high school are pretty comparable.

It has to be some kind of violation for an official at another school to be in direct contact with a current Michigan athlete, right?  If not, it should be!  (For you lawyers out there, this seems akin to a laywer contacting a represented party directly without opposing counsel being included.  Big no-no!)

Hollis' Tweet was in response to a Burke tweet. To see it, Hollis is either following Burke on Twitter. Or he searched for him on Twitter. Sparty's gonna Spart.

Nice Sparty grammar


In fairness though, previous to Hollis saying that Burke tweeted the following:

Trey Burke ‏ @Trey_Burke3

EVERYONE got something to say... smh I thought this was my life!


So admittedly it may be Hollis just giving him advice...and in this case it seems like genuinely good advice

Why do people think this is good advice?  Burke is a 19-year-old kid.  At that age he's likely to have an inflated view of his ability.   Hollis telling him "Go with your heart" sounds to me like "Go ahead and leave school."

I'd be curious to see if Hollis has ever said something like this to one of his own student-athletes.

Fair enough I guess. I was referring more to the "People you seek out are better than those that seek you out" - which I would agree with.


Hollis knows a thing or two about point guards going pro who shouldn't have, am i rite?


I don't know. I fail to see this as a huge deal. He shouldn't have tweeted it but if they saw each other in person he could have said the same thing.

Maybe he was getting back at Dave Brandon for tweeting at Jerel Worthy that all NFL teams provide unlimited servings of Philly cheese steak sandwiches and french fries at their training tables.

...So if Trey isn't supposed to listen to advice from people who he didn't ask for advice and his advice is to not listen to advice from people whose advice he didn't ask for, he should actually listen to his advice since that's not listening to his advice?

Well played, Hollis.
