TWEETS THAT MATTER
Says Miles: "(Youth) play games all the time now, but they're not in the gym working on the necessary skills, which is hurting scoring."—
Steven M. Sipple (@HuskerExtraSip) April 14, 2013
My take: I think Tim Miles is correct. AAU basketball and its emphasis on games over practices isn’t helping basketball.
Jeff Meyer said the program already has plenty of "traction" with top PG recruits in 2015 and 2016 — all of them know who Trey Burke is—
Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) April 14, 2013
My take: Yes, I don’t think Michigan will have issues recruiting point guards in the future. In fact, it has a stud coming in with Derrick Walton.
Nice weekend for Groce: Got 1-year contract extension and $200,000 raise on Saturday. Got Seton Hall transfer Aaron Cosby to commit Fri.—
Shannon Ryan (@sryantribune) April 13, 2013
My take: Yes, it’s good to be John Groce.
No real solid conclusions at QB. All three had good/bad moments. Maybe slight edge to Rudock.—
Tom Kakert (@HawkeyeReport) April 14, 2013
My take: This quarterback derby is going all the way into training camp. Maybe deep into training camp.
No, I don't think Doug Collins will take a job at NU, but he'll certainly help his son promote the program.—
Inside Northwestern (@insidenu) April 15, 2013
My take: He did inform the 76ers that he won’t be back.
Watching high school all star games it's easy to see why guys like Burke/Oladipo ended up better than the supposed All Americans..—
Dan Dakich (@dandakich) April 14, 2013
My take: Something to be said about being motivated and working hard as an under-the-radar guy.
My take: This is good, because Purdue needs a marquee running back.
