Facts are good. I like facts.
careful- admittance to this could result in hefty fines and/or possible banishment.
you're right though, and what is even more unsettling is that they're very young and still have more talent locked up beyond the horizon than we do. Plus the bump is prestige this year's team will undoubtedly warrant. Besides, let's face it- they're damn good TV. 3 NBA caliber guards/wings that can run, penetrate, finish and shoot. In their offense, they can shine. Our offense isn't as loose and relaxed. We might be better conditioned to the NCAA's but if you're a top recruit which offense looks more appealing?
Our best hope is that they may be too finesse to withstand a grueling B1G season, but I suppose that's a concern for every team.
Good news is hardaway and Burke are gone, and maybe Robinson, we shouldn't have any nba defections
Honestly, I'm not worried about them down the line. They don't have anyone in the wings or committed to replace Burke after this year. This team sans Burke and Hardaway is not scary at all. This is basically their only window to try to win anything.
They do have derrick Walton...
Iowa is actually a pretty good team. I think they might play spoiler in the B10 this year.
Derrick Walton? Top 50 kid in country. Burke's gone after this season, but they have enough talent to compete in the B1G for the next few years.
Iowa is a decent team and Michigan is already in command of this game to begin the second half.
This is what I want to see out of our team.
We eventually stepped on Purdue's throat later in the second half, but it'd be nice if we can start to do that earlier in games, to close out the first half or something.
Michigan is impressive yet again today. Stauskas is proving to be a very good basketball player. Hardaway's shot looks much better than I remember it being last year. We're going to need to bring our A+ game to beat them at Breslin.
I thought they were in on that Walton kid.
Michigan has to be building some confidence, wish they had some tougher games early

Gus Johnson just about had an orgasm there.
They also had Darius Morris. Won nothing with him.
Not worried about Derrick Walton either. What is he going to do that Burke isn't already doing?
Iowa is getting bitch slapped all over the court.

They play @OSU next Sunday
Morris had Douglass, Novak, a freshman Hardaway and Morgan. Walton will have Robinson, Stauskas, McGary, Morgan, Levert and top 30 recruit Zak Irvin.
You said they had no one to replace Burke. They have a scoring pg committed in Walton. Is he going to be as good as Burke? probably not, but its not like the cupboard is empty.
Also what does Darius Morris have to Do with anything?
Nothing, but if he is 90% as good as Burke, they're going to be pretty damn good next year.
Based on what? They look pretty terrible to me.
way to draw out all the michigan trolls AA. now drop the
Yeah but if some role players do not step up and play big I think scUM wins that game. I actually think we will win in Columbus as well if Payne steps up like he has in Columbus.
They took Indiana down the wire. They will be tricky to beat at home
I said that they have no one to replace Burke because no one coming in is going to replace Burke except in position. He the best PG in the country.
Darius Morris was a 4 star Top 100 PG too. That's what he has to do with anything. Not all players live up to their billing. MSU has a whole team of players rated higher than Michigan players yet here we are.
