I love our line up, but we will definitely miss those guys, especially Novak. I thought Smotrycz was awful last year, also he is a chicken ****. The guy does not play aggressive at all and is very slow. Novak is the one I am going to miss. He was the guy who kept the fire going and would always sacrifice his body for the team and that would always get everyone else going. Also, he was a pretty damn good shooter, hit his fair share of clutch three pointers along with Stu ( MSU at the Breslin two years ago). But, definitely feel like we are in good hands right now. Just need to find that Novak type player.
Yes, Stauskas is the kid from Canada. A perfect fit for the Beilien system
I predicit the lineup to be like this :
3- Robinson Jr.
With Horford, Mclimas, Vogrich, Stauskas and Max Biefeldt ( Redshirted last year) playing significant minutes.
FWIW, Rivals ended up Ranking Glenn Robinson Jr. as a five star. Do not know if you got your rankings from there or some other site.
But, I really like our class this year. It is the best one we have had in a very long time. I am very excited about the future of Michigan Basketball. Especially, now that we have something to sell with a new renovated area and a player development center that is one of the best in the country.
@BADDOGG: Expect Hardaway to be a better shooter this year. I think he struggled with his shot a bit last year because he did not have Darius Morris to spot him up for shots. He is a better set shooter. As great as Burke was, he really is not a great facilitator. I expect him to be better at that. If you get a chance, youtube Nick Stauskas, kid does not miss. He will play next year.
Seems like recruiting is going to be kind of boring in may for both programs. These are the dog days; between spring football and august. Gets kind of boring just about now.
Do you guys know anything about Meyer recruiting Gedeon hard again? That seems to be a rumor going around.
Good stuff, only thing is I have good information on Bauer. He is a heavy Michigan lean and almost dropped to us a few weeks ago. I would be shocked if he does not commit to Michigan.
Bosa, will be at Michigan this week. I do not think we have much of a chance but then again anything can happen, my hopes is this visit makes him want to officially visit in the fall.
