    Stauskus could go. He would be a top 20 pick probably.

    Stauskus is not ready for prime time yet...but the feeds he'll get in his ear will be "will he get any better at the end of the next year than he is now?"" Look at Oladipo --he has totally disappeared in Orlando.....he would have had 30 games to improve his game at Indiana, but would he have been a higher pick than he was last year?

    Oladipo is making about $5 million this year. He is scoring more points (14.0) in his first year in the NBA than he did last year at Indiana (13.6).

    Even if all of these guys come back, Michigan needs an athletic recruit who can play above the rim......of course in the post game presser, GR3 and Nik said they would discuss with their families and neither said yes they would be back.

    thats my point....will Stauskus coming back get any better as a 'player' or is it just to improve his draft stock??? Everyone thinks these lottery picks are team changers when in reality only the Lebron James' of the world change teams. Stay in college if you think its fun, go pro if you want to get paid. I think the Stauskus family will be just fine either way.

    Niether player has to worry about it being about money and neither will benefit from staying either, Coach B doesn't have enough BBalls to go around for three potential lottery picks so I do believe if anyone goes, it's that brooding lil wuss (just like his dad was)

    Don't play for free when you can get paid.

    College athletes do get paid, they just don't realize it or take advantage of it. The great athletes get exposure that leads to pro contracts at higher amounts. The good ones and worse get free education and a degree if they want it. In the vast majority of cases (most sports have no spectators), that is worth more than what the school makes off of them.

    If you don't like it, then just go pro. That's what a pro is... somebody that gets paid.

    They are gone.....the money is there.....next year they may have gotten more in a weaker draft, but it's time for Beiline to rebuild.
    McGary has until the 27th to declare... Levert, Ervin and the freshman guard will be a good team. But no GR3, Nick, Horford and Morgan will be tough to replace.

    I was going to "like" this comment, but that wouldn't do it justice. I love this comment. Well said.

    Well...next year two players HAVE to step up: McGary and this kid, Donnals. I expect much from Irvin and Walton , who have the experience of going deep into two big tournaments (the Big 10plus and the NCAA), Spike will be Spike and hopefully---Levert wont try to take over evrything BUT I see him averaging 16 to 20 a game.
    A good season would be about 19-10 (10-8 in the big 10plus)

    McGary was a head case when he got to M, and I cant help but wonder (after watching the letters the fab 5 got on the ESPN 30-30 special and the wrath the Traylor 6 got during their tenures at M) how much aftershock we will hear about McGary!!!!

    Also, Mitch isnt getting away with this by going pro...the devil ALWAYS comes to collect!

    The injuries and drug issues have dropped him down to a projected early 40 selection.....if the Pistons have a second round pick...they will select him to fill the spot left open by JMAX :biggrin:

    the kid has NO work ethic at all... it would take a Mahorn/Laimbeer type to get in his ass and get his life straight!
