I mean yes, we had a good season, but we also have to look at the multiple opportunities we blew to make the season that much better. We blew double digit leads to lose twice against MSU to lose a share of the B1G title and the B1G tournament championship. That shouldn't have happened and we blew it multiple times

Hello again Montana

03/17/2019 - 6:07pm We had 1 foul in the first…

We had 1 foul in the first half and 10 in the second half... they clearly decided to change their "style" at half time. Not to mention they just decided to not call an intentional foul at the end of the game

03/17/2019 - 6:05pm Iggy has fine basketball IQ,…

Iggy has fine basketball IQ, but just has tunnel vision. Poole pisses me off so much. Such an undisciplined defender and a 1/3 of his shots are atrocious

03/17/2019 - 6:03pm 1 foul in the first half and…

1 foul in the first half and 10 fouls in the second half. Plus the refs just not calling a clear intentional foul... not what I would call a "fair whistle"

03/17/2019 - 2:21pm If we can keep up our…

If we can keep up our shooting from the last few games and Yak can finally figure out a defensive scheme to defend MSU somewhat well, then we got this. 

03/17/2019 - 2:18pm I found out via group chats…

I found out via group chats 20 minutes before I got an official school notification, which is concerning

03/17/2019 - 2:17pm Screw off. Every student in…

Screw off. Every student in Ann Arbor knew it was happening and it was 100% real until it was confirmed it wasn't

03/17/2019 - 12:32am If we can play defensively…

If we can play defensively like we did in the first half in game 2 and shoot like we have the last few games, I think we got them.

As a student, I got a school notification 20 minutes after I heard via group chats, which is absolutely absurd

03/16/2019 - 9:24pm All the people on social…

All the people on social media making jokes about balloons popping can fuck off. As a student, this was terrifying and was 100% real until it wasn't. Listening the police scanner was terrifying as they had reports of a man in black trench coat with a gun. So glad it was a false alarm because I don't know how I would've recovered if it was real

03/12/2019 - 9:19pm Because OBJ is a top 5…

Because OBJ is a top 5 receiver in the league that was basically the only reason the Giants could put up any points

03/12/2019 - 8:17pm Giants got fleeced in this…

Giants got fleeced in this trade. Jabrill definitely played well this year, but OBJ is OBJ

03/11/2019 - 3:53pm Sam Webb said something this…

Sam Webb said something this morning on WTKA that I completely agree with. All of Izzo's nonstop yelling and screaming at the refs is to scare them and condition them into giving him calls. It's absurd that that SoB has never been ejected from a game in his career

03/10/2019 - 9:26pm I disagree about Castleton's…

I disagree about Castleton's defense. He has definitely shown to be the best freshman on defense imo. He's shown awareness and nice lateral quickness. Needs to just bulk up

03/10/2019 - 9:06am When Poole plays in the…

When Poole plays in the system, he's the best player on the team. When he doesn't he's not better than the 7-31 FG Carsen Edwards we saw the other night. He seems all but checked out imo. He's warming up shooting 3s from NBA range, doesn't seem to want to play defense, and hijacks plays to put up a hero ball shot. I'm thinking he's gone after this season even if that's a bad decision for him

03/10/2019 - 9:03am Brooks actually played ok…

Brooks actually played ok tonight. Probably his best game of the season, even though it still wasn't a good performance. Completely agree about Johns though. Kid is completely lost on both sides of the ball. Hopefully he's better at the 4 next year

03/10/2019 - 9:00am The officiating was bad, but…

The officiating was bad, but we lost this game ourselves. We had a 9 point lead and blew it. We got out rebounded. We can't allow 20-2 runs. Have to think that the officiating affected the players mentally, but that's still little excuse.

Jordan Poole really pissed me off this game. Hijacked multiple plays to hero ball and put up bad shots. His bad shot selection frequently led to a fast break and defensive break downs either from him or someone else. He was lazy defensively in general. He didn't box out. He just confuses me as a player so much. He'll have one of these games, then Beilein will very clearly have said something to him where the next game he'll only take a handful of shots and be much more passive and smart with his decisions. But then the next game, he'll go right back to his old ways. Really frustrating 

03/08/2019 - 9:46pm I think he was 3rd-4th…

I think he was 3rd-4th rounder before the combine. I think he's a 2nd rounder now. I think his speed and agility shocked some people

03/08/2019 - 3:17pm Don't forget about Jalen…

Don't forget about Jalen Wilson. He could very much play the 2 since Beilein is moving towards more position-less basketball

03/08/2019 - 3:16pm I mean DDJ will be a junior…

I mean DDJ will be a junior when Zeb comes in. So I highly doubt a junior DDJ will get passed up by a freshman unless he's a the second coming of Trey Burke. I'm very much a fan of this "get a PG every 2 year" recruiting strategy that Beilein has developed that keeps a constant yearly rotation of experienced PGs. And he'll try and take another PG only if he really likes them (i.e. DJ Carton)

03/08/2019 - 3:11pm From what I've heard, he's a…

From what I've heard, he's a streaky shooter, but has good shooting form that looks good for shooting upside

03/08/2019 - 3:09pm 247 has him at 6'2" and…

247 has him at 6'2" and Rivals has him at 6'3"... idk where people are getting this 5'10" number from

03/08/2019 - 3:07pm Good. LSU has to walk on…

Good. LSU has to walk on thin ice with how they handle the situation especially if they don't want the NCAA to also perhaps take a look at their football team...

(Website double posted my comment)

It's stuff like this makes you realize throughout life that small decisions made by you and other people have a huge impact on people's lives

Goins probably deserves the crosshairs on his lineup card in all honesty

03/07/2019 - 7:21pm Why is this shocking to…

Why is this shocking to anyone? As soon as LSU started randomly showing up in the top schools for recruits they had no business landing, it was obvious LSU was paying players. All you have to do find out what schools are paying players is look at the top schools for 5 star recruits. If you look at one of the schools and say "Wtf, why are they there?" then they are paying players. cough LSU, Oregon, DePaul, Georgia, USC cough

03/06/2019 - 9:24pm There are some celebrities…

There are some celebrities who are timeless and you don't think about them ever leaving this earth. Trebek is one of them. I hope treatment goes well for him and I pray for him and his family

03/05/2019 - 1:54pm If they take Myles Hinton,…

If they take Myles Hinton, AND Franz Wagner, I would bang my head against the wall. They'd become Sibling Stealer Stanford

03/04/2019 - 2:51pm It looks a cross between…

It looks like a cross between Castleton and Izzo

Iggy was very clearly loving being the villain

03/01/2019 - 2:57pm I'm sure this isn't the case…

I'm sure this isn't the case, but it wouldn't shock me in the slightest if this was actually the case

03/01/2019 - 9:16am I think giving him a senior…

I think giving him a senior day was the writing on the wall

03/01/2019 - 9:12am I'm still excited about…

I'm still excited about Nunez. He has a quick trigger and those quick shots he was taking were pretty decent shots in all honesty, they just didn't fall

Actual question: Who is the dude in the yellow? Always wondered that

03/01/2019 - 12:07am Honestly any minutes…

Honestly any minutes Castleton can provide, even if that's against the other team's backup big man, are good minutes to get Teske a breather

02/28/2019 - 11:45pm This does sound like a solid…

This does sound like a solid lineup, especially defensively, but I really don't see Beilein changing the starting lineup at this point. If we have the starting lineup we had tonight next year though, the league better watch out

02/28/2019 - 11:42pm What a great last home game…

What a great last home game of the season. Really have no gripes besides the fact that DDJ should really be taking all of Brooks' minutes at this point. Loved to see Castleton being aggressive but also calm and collected on offense and looking mobile and active on defense. His future is bright once he adds some weight and can extend his range a bit like we know he can

02/28/2019 - 12:05pm "He has shown flashes where…

"He has shown flashes where he can really shoot."

He has? In B1G play, he's averaged 9 MPG and 0.6 PPG while shooting 21% from the field...

02/28/2019 - 11:56am I mean the problem this year…

I mean the problem this year that we have 6, maybe 7, guys we can reliably go to. In the past we've had like 8 dudes who were all viable options for minutes. Brooks and Davis being liabilities on the floor have really cost us in depth

02/28/2019 - 11:53am Not just more PT, but we…

Not just more PT, but we need to run plays for him. He's one of our most efficient shooters and we need to get him more good lucks. Whether that's pick n pops or using him like Poole where he curls for an open 3

02/27/2019 - 7:28pm Honestly if you do think…

Honestly if you do think about it, I don't think it's super shocking that a lot of the freshmen are struggling for minutes besides Iggy. DDJ is playing the hardest position in Beilein's offense, Nunez is a 3* shooter who might take some time to develop, Johns is being played out of position, and Castleton is still rail thin

02/27/2019 - 6:47pm Agreed, Castleton has only…

Agreed, Castleton has only really seen time against Minnesota, but he looked like a gamer out there

02/27/2019 - 6:46pm They're the biggest issues…

They're the biggest issues with our depth imo. They're upperclassmen who should be contributing, but instead are liabilities on the floor. When you have 2 upperclassmen who can't contribute and 5 freshmen, depth becomes an issue real quick

02/27/2019 - 6:44pm I mean I think the biggest…

I mean I think the biggest issue with our depth this year is that Davis and Brooks have been complete busts. As a junior and sophomore, they should be contributors, but aren't. And if they weren't going to be contributors this year, then depth was always going to be an issue if multiple freshmen didn't step up, which has mostly been the case besides Iggy and bit from DDJ. It's kinda been a perfect storm this year for our lack of depth

02/27/2019 - 4:15pm I hate Hei2man as much as…

I hate Hei2man as much as the next guy, but is what is in this post not a little concerning? Especially with our current commits and in-state guys (minus McGregor)

02/25/2019 - 4:06pm Huh, interesting that there…

Huh, interesting that there was no offer, but maybe Belein wanted him to get the full official visit experience, since he didn't see the academic side, before offering?

02/25/2019 - 10:49am I'm fine with it. I just…

I'm fine with it. I just wish he would back it up with his play. There's a strong correlation between him being smart with the ball/good shot selection and him playing well. When his shot selection is bad and he takes deep 3s, he plays poorly. Who would've thought?

02/22/2019 - 12:19am I thought Castleton looked…

I thought Castleton looked good out there. Seemed to have pretty good awareness on both sides of the ball (better than Johns on both sides imo) and had nice lateral quickness on defense. That missed layup took a bad roll imo. He seems like more of a gamer than Johns. A summer of Camp Sanderson will do him well and I'm excited for him next year
