    Sorry if this is repost, but recruiting update of sorts: http://michigan.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1041377

    Kansas State last night was an interesting case.

    First of all, I’m not convinced that the students collectively decided not to rush the floor – if you get enough security personnel at the front of each section, you can stop a rush. I wanna say that the Big 12 has given out fines in the past for court-rushing, so maybe KSU just upped the security to stop it before it started. I guarantee that at least a handful of students wanted to rush.

    Having said that, I think KSU rushing the court would have been acceptable. It’s a win against an undefeated, #1 ranked team and the first major indication that your team is truly a national contender (for seemingly the first time ever). The one thing that makes me second-guess myself is the fact that KSU was actually favored to win the game, much like Clemson last week against UNC. At least we were underdogs against UConn.

    Thanks for the link. Watching the terrific DCDS-Pershing game makes me wish the wolverines had the recruiting advantage in Detroit that they used to — unfortunately, the edge has gone over squarely to MSU.

    At least the blue and maize still have the edge when it comes to recruiting undersized, 3-shooting Indiana farm boys.

    legs on horford looked real solid it was more of his upper body that needs enlarging. strength is crucial

  • Enjoyed your take on tonight’s game, Dylan. With their best big man out, I look to Deshawn to anchor the scoring, give everyone else some confidence. And I look forward to the continuing evolution of our guards.
