We've hit our KenPom expected margin almost exactly for the past 2-3 games (where we've fallen from 4th to 7th) so must be other teams passing us up.

He's been indicating for months that he's a "blaze my own trail" kind of kid.  Though I'm sure his brother losing his position coach didn't help matters.

This is exactly right. I'd venture to say that anyone that says we didn't evolve doesn't actually know what they're looking at.

01/02/2019 - 7:33pm You must have...he said so…

You must have...he said so directly.

There's also a limit per team that can be requested.  Perhaps he gave his up for someone else more marginal?

I don't get the big deal.  Everyone kills people, murders people, steals from you, steals from me. 


Right, Terrelle?

Boy are you going to be surprised when the pairings come out.  

It's Rose, Peach, or Fiesta...NY6 all.

Enjoyed the post and definitely agree (not just because it would be our turn next).  It just feels, with Urban's health issues, like there are tangible reasons why this thing might shift starting in two days.  Here's hoping.

11/07/2018 - 9:16pm Herr Leader's (Brian's)…

Herr Leader's (Brian's) system is very similar to this as well, esp when including home field at least in the first round.  So your idea is def not original, but I do like it.  I especially appreciate how there's an incentive to be 1 or 2 (bye), there's an incentive to be 3 or 4 (home field), and there's an incentive to be 5 or 6 (get in the playoff), so it all matters.

Kudos for the workgroup vs. committee comment...good stuff!

10/17/2018 - 3:37pm I'm not as sure of that…

I'm not as sure of that simply because there's a "team" mindset that Beilein filters for, that is integral to his results, that might also be mutually exclusive with the most elite talent.......but I'd sure like to try.

Walton got cut by the Bulls...did he snag a spot elsewhere?

Under no circumstances should you bring your dog.

Erm, I dunno.  That would likely be misunderstood as "I miss you" when what it really means is "I'll shank you (if you rat me out)".  Too risky.

Glad to still have you "in my life" as part of the podcast.  Get well, sir!

Maybe this is my user error, but if you're not going to do an app, can you please add a favicon for mobile devices?  I recognize this is anal-retentive, but it looks like sh!t right now.  On a related note, please reconsider the decision to not have an app.  Apps are so much better.  I'll pay extra beveled guilt for it.

Hate to say it, but if what we saw in our game is any indication, Haskins is severely under-ranked on this list.

It’s certainly not “the” reason but it’s definitely “a” contributing factor...prob not high on the list, but on the list. Obviously impossible to know the precise impact.

05/08/2018 - 11:35pm That is outrageous

You can definitely be a stand-up person and decide that you'd rather use your fleeting college eligibility somewhere where you can get more playing time.  There is nothing wrong with that.

One small nitpick with the OP...

We didn’t take Simpson after Winston chose MSU. We proactively chose to take the bird in hand in Simpson after giving Winston first chance, which he declined. Winston was the top priority for a long time, and Beilein could have chosen to continue recruiting him. Many believe he would have eventually chosen Michigan.

01/09/2018 - 12:52pm If I've learned anything

If I've learned anything these past few weeks, it's that you don't want co-specialists handling your care...too many cooks in the kitchen.  Pick one, and prosper.

In more seriousness, get better soon, Ace.  We're definitely pulling for you.

11/27/2017 - 9:30am Yep

I find when people are so sure of others' moral intentions, they are usually projecting. It's one thing to wonder if Schiano's coaching quality is a factor, another entirely to be adamant about what other individuals value.

Why would OSU folks be insiders on the halftime entertainment at Michigan Stadium? Maybe if the game was in Columbus...

Wouldn't you have PSU losing to Maryland instead of Nebraska? Did I just increase Michigan's chances by 33%?

A covfefe of what?  Winkie?  That seems like a personal choice, and TMI.  And NTTAWWT.

Maxey is an odd one to have on this list considering we didn't even offer, and if we had, he hasn't chosen a school yet.

May or may not be speculation.  Givony is reasonably well-connected.

I think you're being sarcastic? If not...2013 and 2014 say hello with respect to your "2 months of success" comment.

If Beilein's program is "fatally flawed" in the tournament, then how do you explain that he's outperformed tournament expectations during his tenure?…


Even more simplistically, he has proven it wrong given the 100% plausibility that a team of his could win it all.

There are plenty of things to criticize about Beilein but including offense on that list beyond a stylistic preference destroys any credibility.

Another person who:

  • Vastly prefers the look and feel of the HD app
  • Just re-downloaded and tried to use the official app for the first time in a long time and it crashed

I'm sensitive to the stated reasons.  I'd gladly chip in another $10 of beveled guilt for right to use the HD app.  

Thanks, Brian
