That's how my niece rolls. Way to go, Aislyn! Michigan does indeed suck butt.
No Amir tonight. Sore knee.
Completely agree. I'd say best since Doss as a tackler in the secondary. Whitner probably a little bigger hitter but Bell is typically textbook on tackles.
90's R&B dude. I tried to avoid it but still got Coleman's name wrong once!
I knew I was going to do that at some point in this article. Totally accidental. You're right, Round and Round is exactly why I did it.
I've just been working under the assumption that Urban is hesitant to give Samuel much action at other spots because he's the only backup to Ezekiel at this point so the priority is keep him healthy in case Elliott were to go down with any issue whether it be a short or long term thing. I know Samuel was dinged earlier in the season so that may be a contributing factor to that mindset as well.
I didn't DV you but the fact is, he's a better option at the 5 than McDonald or Lee, imo. It's not like Lee is a freshman who will improve with minutes. He's a known commodity at 6'9" and isn't a prototype defensive center or back-to-the-basket offensive player. He's a 4. And on this team, Loving will probably prove more valuable at the 4, even if undersized. Hence the zone.
Even though I prefer a Thad Matta team playing man to man in the half court, I love the 2-2-1 press look. Only time will tell if Thad thinks he has the depth to employ a full court press in meaningful games but I love it so far. I'm not a huge Amir fan but he's going to see the bulk of minutes out of all the bigs. Anthony Lee is nice but at 6'9" and a bit lanky, he's not a B1G body center. Plus, I think Loving is primed for a solid season out of the (albeit tad undersized) 4-spot, which is clearly a factor in why Thad is toying with a 2-3 halfcourt zone to begin with. He wants Loving's offense on the floor.
And the combo of Scott and Russell in the backcourt is a better all around option than Craft and Scott. Might be blasphemy to some but it will be proven true.
I wasn't sure so I just typed it the way it rolls off my tongue.
EZE was definitely outstanding last night. His physicality sneaks up on guys, I think, and his vision gets better with reps. Loved seeing him finally break a long one last night. I like him in pass pro too.
I don't catch his radio show much but I will say Beau is a class act all the way. He's a huge fan of the site and has been very good to us from day one when most of the Columbus-based MSM was still singing the bloggers-in-basements bullshit.
