Some rather peculiar noises make their way into Quinn’s mic. Adds to the ambiance I suppose.
Yeah, that’s my fault. I was trying to remove background noise and it made him sound garbly a few times.
Also…his fault because he didn’t have the right mic.
I don’t regard it as a problem. I think a lot of it is dog related and it’s kind of funny.
Great pod as always. Best new feature of the site.
Great Podcast, those noises were pretty funny too
I assume the 2 recruits in today ( Todd & Moody) can watch practice. Correct?
Yep – I would think that any official visitors would watch practice as part of their OV.
Not sure where to put this
I think you’ve put it in just the right place and I’m glad I came to the site tonight and read it! Oh, and I DO think Tim McCormick knows just little bit about college basketball, collegiate players, and MICHIGAN! Thanks for sharing it!
Can’t read a practice report by Tim McCormick without thinking of Laval Lucas-Perry.
My memory is foggy regarding McCormick’s comments about LLP. Can you remind me what he said?
He would be the best Michigan point guard since Rumeal Robinson.
Haha I know. LLP was a classic. That’s the #1 thing I always think about anytime McCormick hypes up a Michigan player.
He thought Lucas-Perry would be better than Jalen Rose? Holy hell.
File this McCormick player insight as totally meaningless.
So, Tim McCormick played 90 games for Michigan from 1980-1984. He played nearly 1500 minutes for the Wolverines starting during his junior and senior seasons. During those final two seasons at Michigan he averaged nearly 12.2 points and over 6 rebounds per game. He went on to play in the NBA for eight seasons where he averaged 8.3 ppg and 4.9 rpg. Tim has been a basketball analyst for ESPN, runs the NBA Top 100 camps, and works as a pregame and post game analyst for the Detroit Pistons. BUT, he makes a mistake on LLP and suddenly posters on a message board know more about Michigan basketball than he does, and his opinion has no merit and is “meaningless?” OK…let’s just say I don’t agree, but have fun.
The point is just that McCormick is definitely prone to hyperbole whether it is talking about LLP as the “best Michigan PG since Rumeal Robinson” or saying that Juwan Howard reminds him of Pat Riley.
Is he prone to hyperbole or did he just epically
miss on his assessment of LLP? I don’t recall any other similar examples. With Riley, he’s just comparing his high-energy style…he’s not saying Juwan will be the best coach since Riley…so I don’t count that as hyperbole.
