Re: Jeff Dowtin now #2 Nationally in Assist to Turnover Ratio - Tracking

Jeff still #3 but tonight the top guy had a bad game for Michigan getting 5 assists but 4 turnovers.
Just a few games remaining - hopefully Jeff can end up in the top spot by season's end.

Re: General Recruiting Discussion/Comments

I would share the same concerns as you, but MAL is most certainly a potential play. He has good measurables and good athleticism, but ultimately has not had a great feel for the game, and it doesn't help that he's playing behind Cartwright which means there is not a ton of minutes to play through t...

Wait are people so blinded by hatred of PC that they don’t get science?
