Offseason Discussion Thread


#483

LOL @ MSU being a two when their so-called greatest team ever was only a three (and based on resume should have been lower).


#484

Detroit hires Mike Davis, as has been rumored for a bit. Seems like a good hire to me.


#485

Did a double take there: thought you meant the Pistons!


#486

Figured I would drop this in here… Wrote this piece over at The Athletic and it is unlocked for now.

Looking at the center position and what it might look like next year.


#487

Damn, pulling double-duty. Will the other position analyses be unlocked as well?


#488

Outside of my control so not sure, but I’d guess no. We are doing player-by-player pieces here which will cover a lot of the same bases.


#489

That fair. I see that your PG analysis is locked.


#490

I hope that CC pushes for minutes late in the season as Mo did his freshmen year, and I will bet that Livers plays more than Davis at 5.


#491

That picture of Teske is absolutely majestic.


#492

Btw guys, hypothetical depth chart two years down the row if we land our dream class of Wilson, Carton, McDaniels and Eli goes pro.

PG - Simpson - Dejulius
SG - Poole - Carton - Nunez
SF - Iggy - Wilson
PF - Johns - McDaniels - Livers
C - Teske - Castleton - Davis

idk how we would even play everyone who would need playing time tbh


#493

Eli goes pro…?


#494

I love the optimism though.


#495

Lol. You can say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one…


#496

Welp, 247 is rather bullish on Matthews… I actually think this is a pretty bad list overall though lol


#497

I’d be very surprised if Ward or Matthews were All Americans.


#498

LOL I’m pretty sure him saying Eli goes pro was a nice way of saying something else


#499

Nope. Whether Reegs was using a euphemism or not I’m with him! I’m full on the Eli Express. Typical JB Freshman to Sophomore blow up after camp Sanderson-ization incoming and he’ll be our next surprise early entry.


#500

Random note, but it’s pretty interesting to see Illinois State’s defense fall from 19 to 139 after Yaklich’s departure.


#501

Good to hear:
Teske
Davis
Livers
Poole
All spending both sessions in Ann Arbor this spring/summer. On top of that a European trip. We could see a lot of growth.
Coach Beilein hoping for 2” vertical increase from Big Jon Teske!

mgoblog’s new site debacle really makes me appreciate how damn easy it is to navigate everything on here.
