FORUM POSTING RULES - Read before posting

Forum Rules.

(1) The guiding principle for posting in this forum is moderate yourselves.

(2) Don't write a post that attacks, impugns or denigrates another poster's character. There's an obvious difference between the language of humor and hateful, debased language. Know the difference and post accordingly.

(3) This is a Michigan sports forum. The forum welcomes posts from M's sports rivals. Talking smack, posting sass is what college sports rivalries are all about. Rules (1) and (2) above apply. If you don't want to view the posts of a rival talking smack or sassing, use the ignore feature in User Controls.

(4) This forum is about sharing thoughts, ideas and viewpoints about all sports, any number of subjects and issues, learning stuff from other posters and having fun. There are threads by subject matter within the forum for doing this. Keep the threads on point.

NB: The rules above are not intended to build a case to ban a poster. There are consequences for rule breaking as specified below. That's as far as it should go. Only the most egregious and persistent rule breaking would cause the moderators to consider a ban.

Due Process.

(1) The forum has 6 moderators. Jeff Buchanan, Jon, JD, Hannibal, Oracle, Entropy. None of them want to moderate adult posters who should know better. There may be posts that break the rules.

(2) Posters who, at the sole discretion of a moderator, break a rule will be given a warning post that will site one of the rules listed above as the reason for the deletion.

(3) If the rule breaking behavior continues, a moderator can remove an offending post and any ensuing post that whines about that action. If a moderator removes a post(s) the reason for the removal(s) will be posted with the removal notice that appears in the thread. This should be the end of it. Man up, take responsibility for breaking the rules. The forum moves on. If not, see below.

(4) A poster who has had a warning or a post(s) removed can certify a question by PM to any moderator about that action. Do not complain about the action or attempt to make your case in the forum/threads. Moderators shall do their best to address the question within 72h. At the end of 72h the majority opinion of the moderators responding will be the answer.

(5) Banning a poster for egregious and repeated rule breaking requires a unanimous vote to ban from all 6 moderators. We don't anticipate this will ever happen.

    They'd just updated their rankings today. Johns is 57 and DeJulius is 90, I believe.

      Castleton #131
      Nunez #201
      Since ESPN updated their rankings, 247 updated their composites as well. With that said, these are probably (?) 247's final rankings for the 2018 Class:

      Johns moves up to #69
      Iggy moves down to #76 (still #40 in 247's own rankings and it sounds like that's where he'd be in ESPN's, if they'd ranked him)
      DeJulius moves up to #96
      Castleton moves up to #123
      Nunez moves down to #203

      247 has us as the 15th best class and spartie is #13.

        Who knows, maybe Larry Nance Jr. will still come as a preferred walk-on? I'm sure his dad still has money so maybe a scholarship isn't so important?
        A little flashback. Wishful thinking after the Max Beilfeldt commitment.

          Well, 247 did one last composite update:

          Iggy moves all the way up to #36
          Johns moves up to #65
          DeJulius slides to #98
          Castleton moves up to #117
          and Nunez plummets to #290

          • Also, after the final rankings, Michigan wound up having the 8th best recruiting class (according to 247) in the nation and 2nd best in the B1G, behind Maryland. spartie finished at #14/#3.

            Comment


            • BTW- 7 B1G teams finished in the top 24 recruiting classes plus Minnesota #37, Rutgers #40, and Purdue #41 did okay. The league should be a little stronger overall next season.

              Comment


              • Has a good bit of room to improve, B1G was essentially equal with SEC for #4 behind Big XII, Big East, and ACC... Pac 12 was a very, very distant 6th and essentially a mid major.

                • 6'6" SF Jalen Wilson, #29 (247comp) in 2019 is making a unofficial visit the weekend of May 11th and is rumored to be getting an offer. His Crystal Ball predictions on 247 have it a 3-way split (with only 3 predictions) between Michigan (predicted on 4/5), Oklahoma (predicted in March) and Marquette (predicted in '17). It's been a while since we got a commit from Texas. I don't think Beilein's ever landed one from down there.

                    • Michigan makes Jalen Wilson's Final 6. The other contenders are OSU (Okie St., that is), Marquette, Baylor, Kansas, and UCLA. He's making an unofficial this weekend.

                      Jalen's quote about U of M: “I talk to assistant coach (Luke) Yaklich and head coach John Beilein all the time,” Wilson told Zagsblog.com last month. “I was named after Jalen Rose … so I know all about Michigan basketball, and my mom loves Michigan. They produce great players in the NBA, and they’re a great program in the Big Ten.

                      “I love the coaches there. They really get to me and tell me where I’m at, how I will fit into the program, and how much they really want me. I really enjoy talking to them.”

                      Fab Five fallout!

                      • As for producing "great players in the NBA", it's nice that TIMMAY got paid big time, that Caris keeps improving and that Trey Burke had a bit of a resurrection in New York. GR III was injured almost the whole year but still may become a rotation player. Nik, I think, is fighting for his NBA-life. DJ is buried in a deep front-court in Milwaukee, so he may need to find a different team to get minutes. We'll see where Moe lands. Jamal Crawford is from 3 coaches ago, so I don't think his production is relative to this topic.

                        Hopefully, at least 1 or 2 of our guys get to all-star level. That can only continue to help in recruiting.

                          • Jalen Wilson and DJ Carton are both getting some Crystal Ball picks for Michigan.

                            Wilson (#28 in the 247 composite) is now at 88% Michigan, with 8 predictions. Carton (Currently #33), with 7 predictions total, is at 71% Michigan. Let's hope the Crystal Ball is right!

                              Yeah, well, The Dude abides.

                              (I think he participated in some sorta bowling event, but I don't know if a career change per say.)

                              • Jerry Meyer thinks it's possible Wilson commits on his visit this weekend. I doubt it,but itd be nice.

                                Ideal class to me is Wilson, carton, Girard.
