We generally havent had that under Beilein.  MAAR could get his own during his finally year, but before that, not really any I can remember.  Offense is more about passing/cutting/screening rather than iso.

01/20/2019 - 5:30pm I could see him in a Beilein…

I could see him in a Beilein system for sure.

God, I remember the days some fans had him on our shortlist to replace Lloyd (or was it RR?)

Pretty sure I remember the posting for head coaching position.

Could you imagine 4 man recruiting classes because there was no one else Maizen felt was worthy?

Nevermind I thought there was a limit on analysts, but I see that is not true, so this is not a zero sum situation.

Speculating...but could this mean one of two things?:

 

1. Pep gone, McDaniels promoted

2. Pep staying, McDaniels unhappy and gone

A bit early, but what the hell:

 

I'm having a dr. Pepper.

Ok, so hes somewhere between Drew Brees and Joe Montana?

01/15/2019 - 10:09am Sounds reasonable.  I'm…

Sounds reasonable.  I'm waiting for the epic meltdown here when we finally lose a game or two.  Chicken littles will be out in force.

01/15/2019 - 10:03am I would argue we actually…

I would argue we actually have several "chinks" in the armor:

-team FT shooting

-Zaviers 3 pts shooting

-lack of depth at the 5

-Bradzekis streaky offense

-struggle against zone defense

But we have enough flexibility and talent in other areas to cover for these so far.  We will eventually lose a game, and I think that will tell us more about this team.  I am interested to see how a team accomplishes this.

 

 

01/15/2019 - 12:58am Burke over Simpson

THJ over…

Burke over Simpson

THJ over Matthews 

Poole and Stauskas are a push

Bradzekis and GRIII are a push

Teske over Morgan

Bench goes to the 2013 team big time.  Spike, McGary, Horford, Levert were all big time.

The only advantage I really see is Teske.  He would shut down Morgan on defense, and mitigate a lot of GRIII.  On offense Teske being a 3 pts threat would pull Morgan out of the paint and get things flowing.

 

Having said that, I think the 2013 team wins.  Higher talent at the guard spots and a more talented AND deeper bench.  Love this years team, but the 2013 team was special.

 

01/14/2019 - 10:19pm The key difference is…

The key difference is Wisconsin has a tremendous home court advantage.  I doubt we get a halftime lead like that, and we are better than Maryland.

01/14/2019 - 9:40pm Good.  They should have lost…

Good.  They should have lost their last game too.

Yes.  In over 100+ years of basketball this is our best start ever.

But, I was told linemen who transfer are not very good!

Wonder if MSU would take him.  Their WR looked awful after Davis got hurt.

Not just here, but society as a whole.  I will get off my soapbox...

Yeah I was going to say, yes going to be ONE of the three or four voices in Harbaughs ear.

Also loved his bromance with Heiko.  The only coach to actually spend time creating content for this blog.  Pretty special really.

01/09/2019 - 11:20pm We had what, 3 or 4…

We had what, 3 or 4 targeting penalties called on us over 13 games?  I think you are exaggerating a bit.  Or, you dont work very hard if you think that's a full time job.

01/09/2019 - 7:36pm 15 yards for a T1 doesnt…

15 yards for a T1 doesnt sound like enough.  That's no different than a personal foul, but the play itself could cause significant (unintentional) injury.  I would have preferred to see:

Personal Foul/Roughing: 15 yards (no change)

T1: sit 2 quarters

T2: automatic ejection and miss next game.  Send to conference to review.  Let conference reinstate if they deem it was not malicious with intent.  This gives a week for a thorough investigation rather than putting someone on the spot.

Most targeting penalties would still be T1.  T2 deserves much worse.

With T1 structured this way. If a player gets flagged in the 3rd quarter, they miss the 4th Q and 1Q of the next game, rather than missing the entire next game.

I wish we had john bacon writing the behind the scenes for us.  I would love a recap of the last 4 months

01/09/2019 - 12:43am Most years you would be…

Most years you would be correct about MSU but that doesnt really apply here.  First off, they have played a more difficult schedule than us so far.  Secondly, their 2 losses are pretty good ones- to Kansas on a neutral court to open the season, and a 4 point loss @Louisville.

 

I hate MSU as much as the next guy, but they are good this year.  Very similar to a Beilein team really in that the sum of their parts is better than any one player.  They have gelled really well and have many ways to beat you.  I would not be surprised if we split the series with them.

McQuaid trying to guard Poole makes me laugh.

I also noticed Binghampton is 2nd in their conference which surprised me.

Let's get Purdue's rides up DC.  Could you imagine him and 2015 Harbaugh not giving a fuck, and chewing out refs?

01/08/2019 - 9:15pm These stories are dumb. …

These stories are dumb.  Harbaugh doesnt need more motivation to beat OSU.  They are a rival, highly ranked and have completely embarrassed his legacy.  He doesnt need more reasons.

Chris webber.  Upgrade over Teske and having Teske behind him solidifies a backup at the 5 which is a weakness in our roster.

Ut sucks to lose the talent.  GMatt was universally liked, but he was at the end of his career anyway.  We would need to replace him in the next couple years anyway, this just sped up the process.

One of the reporters said M countered with a 2 year deal.

I admit it seems like an odd move for OSU to hire a guy who was rumored to be mulling retirement.  They may only get a few more years out of GMatt.  To me, this move felt personal.  It was more about depriving Michigan of one of their better coaches, and rubbing our noses in it.
