I believe they just started working. all new posts and replies will have them.

Can Maizen be any more obvious? More concern trolling. I would be lying if I said I wasn't concerned about recruiting, but holy hell the constant threads and posts are nauseating.
|06/06/2018 - 9:12am||You're free to do as you…||
You're free to do as you wish, but the game is not like Risk at all. What makes sense in Risk wouldn't necessarily make sense in this game.
|06/06/2018 - 9:09am||Please do not. They had 1…||
Please do not. They had 1 rogue member attack each. It wasn't coordinated at all. One player was brand new and the other hadn't played in 20 days. We will be able to get it back just fine, no need to freak out.

JJJ is absolutely a Center in the NBA. And I think he’s going to be a damn good one. Anyone who is putting him at PF is wasting him like Izzo did.

I'm not one of the strategists but Im active in the discord and try to stay plugged in. So with that disclaimer in... VT borders that territory and will most likely want it back. The idea was most likely worked out with Cemson that we just want the territory to stay in the alliance, doesn't matter who ends up with it.
Each territory is a free for all each round for anyone that borders that territory. Defending is essentially re-attacking that territory.

Everytime you post I think Maizen is back.
|05/24/2018 - 1:02pm||Clemson has followed our||
Clemson has followed our order to a T thus far. We basically run their strategy for them and have 4x the army that they have. There is very little risk in allowing Clemson to stick around right now. it protects us from another side and they may help us a little in attacking our enemies. If they ever went against us they would not be able to get very deep and we would immediately swuash them the next turn.

I gave you several upvotes. I am also on the climb to 3 stars. Only about 125 left

You can't really predict who will become DJ Wilson types though. He wasn't on NBA radars until January.
|05/15/2018 - 8:53am||Ehh the best teams don't have||
Ehh the best teams don't have NBA talent but they all have very good, established pros that are in the prime of their athletic careers. Calling the talent "not high level by any means" is an absolute insult. The OSU team had Craft who is a great DLeague player already, Sullinger who had an NBA career, Diebler, Lighty, Buford who were all great college players (much better than most of the guys on this OSU/Michigan team) and have all continued in Europe.
Dakich would get his lunch eaten by Craft. Horfoed and Stu are probably the two best players as they've had solid pro careers, and Duncan and Tate could be good role players. But Donnal, Dakich and Kam WIlliams don't belong yet. They would be hard pressed to more than 1 game.
|05/12/2018 - 12:38pm||OSU has basically made their||
OSU has basically made their whole goal in this game to eliminate us, and if they can't eliminate us, weaken us so we get eliminated. They are our Sparty in this game. Let's stop them.
|04/11/2018 - 5:47pm||Just FYI for your||
Just for your expectations, Brazdeikas is not a pure shooter at least insofar as Stauskas is the definition. He shot around 30% in EYBL and 33% for his prep team. It should be noted he was taking tough threes, and his catch and shoot numbers improved a lot during his HS season this year so the trend could be up. It was deinitely awesome to see that article call himm the best shooter on that International team.
He's a pure scorer though. Finishes great with both hands with a variety of finishes. Hits 3s, hits midrange and grabs a lot of offensive boards as well.

No. Max started for a Sweet Sixteen Indiana team that won the Big Ten
|04/07/2018 - 11:37am||He looked very bad in Spring||
He looked very bad in Spring Training, so bad that some scouts were saying he is not major league ready as a hitter. So we shall see how he does after teams get some tendencies, I hope he can adjust because I am definitely rooting for the guy. It's such a cool story, but way too early for potential MVP talk.
|04/07/2018 - 11:35am||WAR is essentially a counting||
WAR is essentially a counting stat, so yes that absolutely takes into account durability.
|04/06/2018 - 2:27pm||Again, Bamba and Brown work||
Again, Bamba and Brown work for that example, but Bluiett still does not. They were a 1 seed this year and went to the elite 8 last year, 2nd round the year before that and Sweet Sixteen his freshman year.
|04/06/2018 - 2:15pm||Solid recruiting classes have||
Solid recruiting classes have actually been the norm over the last 8 or so years. We just had a couple classes that were either slammed with unexpected attrition or missed on a couple guys we had targeted for years. Then there's something like the 2016 class where we thought we were going to get whichever of Battle and Langford chose first, then Battle screwed us up the ass and we ended up scrambling to get Ibi at the end of the cycle. All those added up to the relative dearth in talent in the 2015-2016 seasons that were also ravaged by injuries.
If we had gotten Battle or Langford, we would have had 9 top 150 recruits over the past 3 cycles, with many being top 100 plus Eli Brooks who was not top 150 but was recruited hard by some team named Villanova.
No they're not Duke level classes but if we can keep a steady stream of players ranked in the 40-130 range then we will be setup great with guys that will stay 2-4 years and grow and develop.
|04/06/2018 - 2:03pm||Uhh Trevon Bluiett is not the||
Uhh Trevon Bluiett is not the best example. He averaged 19 PPG the last two years at Xavier. Scored over 2,000 career points, 2nd all-time in Xavier history.

If you have bad spacing and you stop shooting 3s then getting to the basket becomes 10x harder.

One guy commented on Beilein doing things clean and then described them as “Michigan’s version of the Tressel teams”
I think that’s an oxymoron
|03/29/2018 - 1:34pm||Seth noted the SMU blowout||
Seth noted the SMU blowout loss as a reason that nobody expected last year's team to make a run. But he mixed up his years. We actually blew SMU out last year the day after blowing out Marquette at which point we earned out only top 25 ranking of the regular season.
We did get blown out by SMU the year prior, but that SMU team was really good and we were not.
|03/29/2018 - 9:10am||The problem of not dunking it||
The problem of not dunking it is more closely tied to his problem of not having very good leaping ability. Mo is someone that I don't think would shy away from slamming it in someone's face, he just doesn't have that capability. So yes, that will be a hinderence to him in the NBA.
|03/28/2018 - 4:34pm||To be fair, Duncan is||
To be fair, Duncan is essentially the starter right now. He plays more than Livers. Also it's the final four so all the players left are really good.
|03/28/2018 - 12:50pm||Any team picking in that||
Any team picking in that range would be lucky to get a guy that can be a #3 on a good team.
|03/26/2018 - 4:39pm||Beilein's "system" of||
Beilein's "system" of shooting 3s is how basketball is played now, it's not flawed unless you consider bad defense part of the system. Beilein was ahead of the curve. The game is passing Izzo by so he better figure things out.
|03/26/2018 - 9:19am||Richardson and Custer both||
Richardson and Custer both had some injuries early in the year. If you go back to the point when they were both healthy, Loyola is the #16 team on Bart Torvik's site. This team ain't no slouch, and it probably the 2nd best team we've played all tournament.
|03/25/2018 - 10:25am||Based on the amount of topics||
Based on the amount of topics about him here, I would say he is properly sung.

Also their 2001 Final Four had them get wins over 16, 9, 12, and 11. Then they got crushed in the Final Four
|03/20/2018 - 1:19pm||That is slander to Zak Irvin||
That is slander to Zak Irvin to suggest it's easy to get to his level. "Relatively awful"? Get out with that BS. He was a good passer, defender, and decent rebounder with a great mid range game and streaky from 3. If Ibi became Zak Irvin that would be fantastic.
|03/19/2018 - 10:47am||Well I'd rather play Xavier||
Well I'd rather play Xavier than Gonzaga because Gonzaga is better but your point still stands
|03/13/2018 - 12:07pm||What do you mean by needs to||
What do you mean by needs to make it to the Sweet 16?
Michigan has a 52% chance to make it to the Sweeet Sixteen according to Bart Torvik. I assume a similar number on KenPom and other metircs. That's like counting on a Zavier Simpson FT. The season is a success and the randomness of a single elimination tournament will not change it.
|03/10/2018 - 8:22am||According to the head||
According to the head committee guy, they aren't looking at it as black white as people think they are. They realize some Q1 wins are better and they realize some Q2 wins are right one the cut line, etc. So it *hopefully* won't matter.
|03/09/2018 - 2:06pm||I beleive most all of||
I beleive most all of Zavier's friends and family call him X. I don't remember who it came from or when, but someone tweeted out that it was a new Big Ten rule that players must have their legal names listed on the roster, hence Xavier to Zavier. Also Spike would have had to have been Michael Albrecht.

You want Harbaugh... to coach offense less? What's he supposed to coach then? I thought we wanted him to coach offense more.

I see Mo's mom and MAAR's parents in the family pic. The lady to the far left HAS to be Charles' mom. They look so much alike.
|03/05/2018 - 4:22pm||I;m not sure another win over||
I'm not sure another win over SMC is enough to put Gonzaga over us, but I guess it's better to be safe than sorry. If SMC loses tonight and Gonzaga beats a different WCC team they definitely won't pass us.
|03/05/2018 - 10:09am||We would what now? Be||
We would what now? Be comfortable with Jon Teske on Bagley?
|03/04/2018 - 7:47pm||Well KenPom can't really||
Well KenPom can't really predict a team getting significatly better almost overnight. We're moving up his rankings though. W were 9 going into the game which is much higher than any other ranking.

bang me! Hail!
|03/03/2018 - 9:41am||Legitimate question, do you||
Legitimate question, do you still think Brooks is better than Simpson?
|03/03/2018 - 9:35am||MAAR is not better at||
MAAR is not better at attacking the rim than Bruke or Stauskas. His numbers around the rim aren't at their level. MAAR recently is very good. Burke, Stauskas, last 2 month Walton = All-American level players.
The 2014 and 2013 teams' offenses were crazy good. Like #1 in the country good. This team is 40th on offense.
|03/02/2018 - 8:13am||Teske was big defensively||
Teske was big defensively down the stretch. There was a very noticaeable drop in our offense when he came on though which is to be expected for now. He's as good of a backup C Michigan has had in a long time outside of the one year of McGary/JMo.
Definitely hope he plays less minutes in the coming games which would mean no foul trouble for Mo
|02/28/2018 - 3:38pm||I like Livers, but his usage||
I like Livers, but his usage is tiny. He's purely a defensive player that hits spot up 3s of which have not even been coming recently. Nothing off screens, nothing off the dribble. He just hasn't shown skills to make up for his honestly average athleticism as far as the NBA is concerned.
|02/28/2018 - 3:19pm||I don't know Livers exact||
I don't know Livers exact wingspan, but Aminu's is 7'3". And Aminu is almost 6'8" without shoes and I'd venture to guess Livers needs shoes to reach 6'8". If he makes it to the NBA it will be as a Tobias Harris type player. Big, strong 4 that is not going to pretect the rim. Now Tobias HArris was a fantastic college player Livers has to keep growing as a shooter and a playmaker. He's shown 0 playmaking ability thus far in his career, which is to be expected.
I would be very surprised if Livers didn't play all 4 years here.
