    Of course Twitter’s widgets go down after launching the page. Hopefully it’s back soon. Also we fixed the tweets tab on the right of the page.

      Seems to be working now.

        I like the twitter tracker and draft stock pages, but I think the twitter tracker page might be helped by a simple list of who is on twitter and their handles. think that would be a valuable resource as well.

    That’s gotta be Izzo, feigning nonchalance. All I can say is keep Derrick Nix off the hooch if you hope to stand a chance. Don’t want him falling asleep in OUR HOUSE once again.

    A few thoughts/questions: (1) Who do you think the opposing coach is they quoted in CBSSports.com? Izzo? (2) SI.com says Stauskas “lacks…great skill”. smh. Other than that, nothing worth noting. (3) To answer Yahoo! Sports: no. (4) Been thinking about buying Basketball Prospectus having never read it before. I don’t even have time to crack the Blue Ribbon Yearbook sitting next to my bed. What’s so great about the Prospectus?

      Prospectus is great. I actually helped out the last two editions but sat out this year. Gasaway is great and it’s all tempo-free based, which hopefully you appreciate if you read this site. Easily the best preview mag year in and year out if you enjoy quality hoops analysis.

      That bit about Stauskas tells you right away the writer isn’t credible at all. After reading a lot of the recent reports on the team, a lot of the national writers do not have a clue what we just saw the last few games. Mcgary a finesse bigman now? A lot of reports are preaching the lack of frontcourt depth as the big issue… I’m more optimistic now than before the exhibition games. Could be a great year.

    Hey Dylan, do you know of any way for out of staters to watch tomorrow’s game versus Slippery Rock?

    • http://www.umhoops.com/ Dylan Burkhardt

      BTN.com/MGoBlue All-Access. Costs 10 bucks.

  • Cary Bear

    From the twittersphere, it looks like stauskas has a sore back and may miss the slippery rock game. Also, LeVert looks to be destined for a redshirt this year.

    • http://www.umhoops.com/ Dylan Burkhardt

      Yep. We’ll have more from availability in a bit here.

    The twitter feature may be TMI. I like to follow Michigan sports but I don’t know if I need to know what the high schoolers are up to.
