    Re: Cornell Mann hired, Abdelmassih promoted

    Cornell is a ridiculously cool guy. I met him and hung out with him a couple of times when he was an assistant at Central Michigan University, as one of my best friends was a manager for the CMU basketball team as well as a roommate of Mann's. Super nice guy and he's a big dude too. Could easily pass for an ex-football player.

    Yippee. Michigan recruiting ties. Michigan isn't the place that comes to mind when I think of "fertile basketball recruiting grounds."

    You can't be serious can you.

    Does the term "Flintstones" ring a bell. It should.

    Might want to do a little more research. Izzo has been to more final fours than pretty much any coach out there in the last 10 years and usually over 50% of his schollys go to Michigan players. There are more D-1 Recruits in JUST the Detroit area schools than the whole state of Iowa on a typical basis, and there are a lot of guys that come out of Lansing, Saginaw, Flint, Battle Creek, Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids. It's a great recruiting hire.

    Michigan State had 9 players from Michigan on their roster this year. I think Izzo would disagree.

    Re: Cornell Mann hired, Abdelmassih promoted

    Jonny Orr built this program with Michigan players and I think it is a great move by Fred to make Michigan a priority again. I am also excited by Abdelmassih's NY connections. If we can get one or two Stinson's or Tinsely's a year I would be happy!

    Does anyone know how Mann is with the X and O's? It seems like Bobby was that guy last year and Mann must be filling that role since he has more coaching experience than anyone else on the staff. I thought we were always stratigically well prepard last year and I hope there isn't a big drop off.
