Wilson wasn’t ready at all when he got here. Even after redshirting he looked lost as a RS Fr. He didn’t come on til year 3.

And just cool the jets on McCaffrey. He looks promising, but so did Brandon Peters vs subpar competition.

02/16/2019 - 2:16pm Teske won the 1-1 battle…

Teske won the 1-1 battle with Bruno and Smith. Had a ton of open 3s but his legs seeded a bit heavy on the shots. Overall I would say Teske was a plus.

Poole had one strong fast break drive to break one of their runs. Aside from that he was off. Took another awful step back 3 early in the clock and did a horrible hero ball moment on the last possession of the first half. At this point he needs to be a guy who gets out on the break or waits for a set catch and shoot.

John Beilein for one minute did what Tom Izzo does for an hour and a half every game. It’s an absolute joke what that little gremlin gets away with (on and off the court).

Iggy and Poole need to get their heads out of their asses. Matthews has turned a corner. Teske and Simpson both with off nights but can’t get on them too much because they’ve been the anchors all year.

It’s pretty much 4 on 5 with Brooks out there.

Losing Moe MAAR and Duncan shows. We replaced each 3 with guys who provide less on offense than any of them did. 

Teske is a plus defender to Moe but his offensive game is quite inferior.

Poole is not the consistent player MAAR was and Poole was great off the bench and his replacement is offensively challenged Brooks.

As much as I like Livers, he’s no D-Rob

Having Brooks and Simpson on the floor on the same time is terrible. You have your two guards who can’t stretch the D at all

This actually could work out as a quasi-minor league system. Especially since these players are playing in the offseason. This is different from the G-League because you actually have to be a good team player to look successful here and it’s not the shitshow the G-League is which is basically the grown man version of watching AAU games

It’ll be interesting to see how the AAF does this season and if it will fuel interest for the XFL or destroy the intrigue of it

Yes the only time they wore blue was in the BTT and they wore the camo styled shorts with the 2011-12 uniform. They opted not to wear the short sleeve jerseys because well, they sucked

02/06/2019 - 12:09pm The lettering on the current…

The lettering on the current style is quite bad. Way too small and cramped together. Also, the “shininess” of the lettering and numbers on the blue uniforms looks bad as well. 

Adidas did some bad stuff with our uniforms but, they did a lot that looked quite good. Minus the tire tracks the 2015-16 Blue uniforms looked great. The more traditional maize on the blue in larger lettering looked sharp. 

I know Nike branded the “victors” font, but it really leaves a lot to be desired; especially compared to the Fab 5 style. Also the little M under the neckline they added this year is pointless and just adds to the cluttered look.

02/06/2019 - 12:03pm Yes, they did. That’s why…

Yes, they did. That’s why they wore the blue uniforms so little in 2012-13. After that Minnesota game where several ripped, they only wore blue a couple more times and the ones who had their uniforms ripped had to wear the 2011-12 style.

Jay Harbaugh was the one who reached out and offered him so it looks like at least as of now RB is what they are looking at. Gattis also met with him this past weekend so we shall see. Due to injuries and depth issues during the season he also played defensive back and played extremely well there so that could always be an option as well I could see.

He blamed the Purdue loss on not having many days off that week, and blames this game on too many days off. 

Me thinks you might be the problem Tommy

Can’t shoot as poor as MSU did from the line and expect to win vs anyone. 

Both of us sit now with two losses in the B1G to tournament caliber teams. Hard to see the B1G champion having any less than 4 losses

02/02/2019 - 2:18am The perspective to take away…

The perspective to take away from this game along with the past 6-8 weeks is this: 

This team is elite defensively with the best PG and Interior defender in the conference and two of the best in the country. Mathews is also a high level defender. From the starters the defense is superb. That is not the issue at all.

The issue is the offense. Poole and Iggy can rep defenses honest with their shot. The other three do not. Teske is good on the pick and roll but not much of a back to the basket threat. Right now we have one quality bench player and that is Livers.

Brooks is not a good option at the 2 alongside Simpson. He is not a slasher nor is he a good spot up shooter. Our lack of a second big is detrimental too. Davis is a significant downgrade from Teske on O and D. Johns is out of position at the 5, and is much more suited for the 4. 

Last season we had Poole off the bench at the wing to keep the D honest: and Teske who could come in and be an improvement at D for some quality minutes. Our lack of a viable backup guard and post player is the biggest issue. Brooks is an okay player to supplant Simpson for a few minutes but an absolute negative when playing the 2. Same goes for Davis/Johns at the 5. 

For this team to make a run it needs to 1: stay out of foul trouble at the PG and C position. It needs Livers to be an offensive weapon off the bench. Second, Matthews has got to get back to the level he was in the tournament last year. Lastly it needs one more player to come off the bench and provide offense. It’s going to have to be a freshman in Johns, Castleton, or even Nunez. Without those, this team is at risk for a game like tonight and at Madison. Come the second round of the tournament, this team could lose with performances like this. 

Someone who has not been a major contributor (those being Simpson, Poole, Iggy and Teske) to step up big time.
