I mean in the larger sense - it's weird compared to how improved the fundamentals are on the other units. I mean, I get the idea that players are adjusting to Mel's system and the special teams may lag behind, but not this much.

PK is such a weakness. So weird how bad it is.

Okay, so...what, then?
The G League is not unlike the baseball minor leagues these days (probably better, actually, at least for the players). Irvin is young man with a UM degree, it's not as if he tried to make the jump out of high school and doesn't have other options. If he wants spend a couple years making $20k or $25k a year playing ball, I don't see why that's a problem. If an NBA team signs him to a two-way deal, then he makes around $75k a year while in the G League, and the $800k a year NBA rookie minimum while on the NBA roster. So if just one NBA team decides to sign him to a two way contract for a few weeks, he could easily make over $200k this year.

Appreciate it. No BTN here and can't always watch the game live.

Is the audio quality any better than the Wolverine Beat? I stopped listening because I can't stand it when a podcast sounds like it was recorded inside a cave.

There's no way Grant Newsome can be the next President of the United States. He was born in 1997, which means he'll be 23 in 2020, and 27 in 2024. You have to be at least 35 years old to be President.
|08/19/2017 - 8:16pm||I feel pretty good about it,||
I feel pretty good about it, actually, because (for the most part) I really like this community and enjoy most of the discussions, even arguments when they are civil. So I don't mind taking a minute to comment when someone gets so negative and combative with everyone else.
And I said you stirred up a shitty argument, not that your argument was shitty. I don't really have a strong opinion on Ulizio, you may well be right. The shitty part was your attitude and tone.

I find it odd when people stir up big stupid shitty arguments and then when they get called out on it, they say something like, "Oh, I'm just having fun now."
Really? That's what constitutes fun for you? Here are some things I find fun:

Don't be like that. He saw him in person, he's reporting his own opinion based on that. All your comment does is shut down discussion.

I look forward to 1st-and-goal from the 2 yard line, and watching Ben Mason leading Kurt Taylor toward Mike Onwenu's side of the line.
|06/22/2017 - 10:17pm||That's fair. I do think GRIII||
That's fair. I do think GRIII and THJ have swung the balance back toward the positive. My view is possibly unduly swayed by the (relatively) poor performances by the highest regarded guys -- Burke, Stauskas, and McGary.
I am surprised at the downvotes for what I assumed would be a fairly noncontroversial comment. We think that high school QB's should look at Harbaugh's record and find his coaching history attractive, and that this should be a recruiting advantage for us. Is it crazy to think that high school basketball players aren't looking at Michigan's NBA players and thinking, "Maybe Beilein can get me drafted, but I'll end up being a role player, or washing out. I'd rather player for a guy who has a record of producing NBA starters."
That perspective may not be fair or accurate. But it doesn't matter if it's fair or accurate. If high school recruits believe it, it will affect Beilein's ability to recruit.
[I think it works the other way, too. I think Beilein has probably pulled some mid-tier guys that he wanted because he has a history of developing similar players into NBA prospects.]

I agree. Read my post not as a complaint, but as a wish for better things.
|06/22/2017 - 9:27pm||Both for his sake and for||
Both for his sake and for Michigan's, I hope he succeeds. Beilein has done an amazing job putting kids into the 1st round of the draft. Now we need some guys to actually succeed as pros. I know we aren't going to be the program consistently putting MVP candidates into the league, but some solid NBA regulars would be nice, instead of mostly bench fodder.
|06/17/2017 - 8:54pm||Why are top QB's still going||
Why are top QB's still going to Alabama? I completely understand when the 5 star RB or DL recruits pick Bama. And sure, Bama is such a good program that I understand that they'd have their pick of decent 4 star QB's.
But why would elite 5 star QB prospects consider them? Wouldn't you want to work for a head coach and offensive staff that has had at least some success producing quality NFL QB's? Saban's best NFL QB is...Greg McElroy?
EDIT: I forgot that AJ McCarron started 4 games in 2015. So, I guess that makes him the best Saban-produced QB.

I couldn't figure out why this part, particularly the second line, was so funny to me:
Then I realized it's because it sounds like the punchline to a Mitch Hedberg joke, and I'm hearing it in my head in Mitch's voice.

Beilein encouraged Doyle and Dawkins to transfer? I was still under the impression that while they might not have been enthused about their roles on the team, that they would have been welcomed back as rotation depth.
EDIT: I just looked up the Exit posts for both...I guess it was hinted at for Doyle that there wasn't a place for him on the roster. The post for Dawkins mentioned his regression but seemed to still suggest that he was looking for a bigger role and the chance to play for his father, rather than being encouraged to leave.

Thanks! Just started downloading. Was hoping for a Youtube feed as well, but so far I have seen nothing at all -- I have to assume people would try to upload a good recording so maybe CBS/NCAA is monitoring it closely.
Download could be a bit faster, let's get some more seeds going.

The only appropriate way to finish this story is for Harbaugh to recruit the kid anyway and get him to commit to Michigan.
|02/13/2017 - 10:15am||Yes, that is exactly what I||
Yes, that is exactly what I said.
|02/13/2017 - 10:08am||For the record, my official||
For the record, my official answer is no. Look at how Burke dominated the college game and has struggled in the NBA. Walton is a bit beefier than Burke, but Burke was plenty tough as well. Neither has elite physical attributes or skills.
Having said that, I think a favorable player comp for Walton would be Derek Fisher. Fisher was 6'1" and 200 lbs, same height as Walton but a little bit heavier. Fisher was not a plus offensive player, especially early in his career, but he had solid fundamentals and took care of the ball. Later in his career he developed a reliable-ish jump shot and became an excellent free throw shooter. His assist rate was always pretty low for a PG, even when he was playing starter's minutes.
Now, I think that's probably a best case scenario for Walton. I would guess that out of college, Fisher was more athletic and quicker than Walton, and almost certainly a better man defender. But there are some similarities.
|02/13/2017 - 9:55am||No lie||
When I read your opening sentence about "3-5 more wins", my brain immediately interjected "Wait, don't you mean 3-9??"
I guess that means I should probably back off the MSU fans.
|02/09/2017 - 5:28pm||Yeah, not a good day for MSU||
|02/09/2017 - 3:45pm||Eh, you may be right, it was||
Eh, you may be right, it was an inaccurate use of the term.
What I was trying to express was my frustration with the underlying insinuation of purer or superior fandom because they'd never, no never root against Michigan.
I find this debate similar to the Fournette/McCaffrey bowl game issue -- most of us can discuss different views on it in reasonable tones, but a few people always have to put on very serious faces and lecture about the consequences of players quitting on their teams or the loss of amateurism or somesuch, which completely derails the debate.
Anyway, I'm just rambling now and probably moving further from the point than nearer to it.
|02/09/2017 - 12:36pm||That's not what was said,||
That's not what was said, either. I brought up Hoke in response to those who suggested that they never, ever felt any kind of conflict in rooting for a Michigan win.
|02/08/2017 - 9:19pm||Far be it from me to interrupt the concern-trolling...||
...but I didn't say I was rooting against or ever have rooted against Michigan teams, or not wanted them to win.
I am capable. however, of thinking many different thoughts, even when they seem to be (or are in fact) in conflict with each other. I can both strongly desire for Michigan teams to win any individual game and also consider the larger consequences of winning or losing.
If you guys didn't feel this same conflict near the end of the Hoke era, you're lying.
|02/08/2017 - 4:34pm||Gotta be the Happy Captain||
As much as I enjoyed watching the beatdown last night, I was feeling a bit conflicted. I'm starting to worry about a meaningless late season push that will take the heat off of Beilein, and result in another year or two of middling performances. That's a topic for a different thread, but that was how I was feeling.
But when I saw Walton with his big goofy-ass grin and his head wobbling in time with the fight song, I couldn't help it. I didn't care about Beilein's job security or whether we'd make the tournament or anything. Just happiness.
