Thank God, if true.  But it's the Freep, so you never know.

My guess is Robinson III will be leaving as well. He's projected as a 1st rounder.

Whatever happened to waiting until your season is over?  Not that I mind if they're a bit distracted from the business at hand.  Let's hope they can get on with their agent shopping after Saturday night.

SOCK PUPPETS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!!!

Now all they have to do is lose this next game and all will be right with the world.

Wow, this is really unusual to have this sort of news leaked before the official end of the season. Beilien has to be furious.
All they have to do now is lose one of their next two games. If Michigan wins another national title after being in Nowheresville for 20 years, and after we've had so many chances and haven't, my screams will be audible worldwide.

Leave for the NBA
If he gets drafted when Buford didn't, i'll be shocked.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

Prepare for a pretty good shock.

For what its worth, here is CBS SPorts mock.  
First Round:
Burke no 6
Glenn Robinson III No 22
Second Round:
DT - no 31 (1st pick second round)
Gary Harris - no 32
Adrian Payne no 36
Hardaway JR  No. 47
Brandon Paul No 56
Rodney Williams No. 58

Good!  He and Burke will do well in the pros.  And TSUN won't be going to a Final Four for another 20 years, probably...

Class of 2010.

Not for nothing, but Michigan does have Zak Irvin and Derrick Walton coming in to fill the shoes of a departing Burke and Hardaway. They're definitely no slouches - rivals #34 and #47 recruits in the country, respectively. I'm not saying *next* year if Burke and Hardaway leave. However, the way Beilein is recruiting, it might not be as long as you think.
Regarding earlier posts - I really hope Robinson III sticks another year. Kid is gonna be unreal next year. Hopefully he sees what Burke did for his draft stock this year, and realizes he can do the same thing with a big step forward.

The saddest part of all of this is that I think his dad needs one more year...to learn how to wear a sock hat.

Hardaway was one of those guys who you thought was a senior because he played in so many games. I'm sure that there are more than a few B1G fans who are going to shit when they see Aaron Craft back on the court.
"But I thought..."

Hahahahahhahaha, so true... So many people I've talked to were shocked to hear that Craft is a junior.

Like the way Robbie Hummel threatened to become the first person to simultaneously play in the Big Ten Tournament and join AARP.

Tim Jr.: "Dad, I've decided that I'm coming out..."
Dad (interrupting): "Well, you know, I hate gay people."
Tim Jr.: "of college."

Purportedly or Reportedly? Either way, good for him. I enjoyed watching him play, though it sucked when it was against us...
