What Happened Wolverines?
University of Michigan basketball is certainly not what it used to be, but was it really ever that great? The Wolverines sure did have some great years with freshman class Juwan Howard, Jimmy King, Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, and Ray Jackson. Yet, that team never lived up to its’ calling, a NCAA Championship. The “Fab Five”, would have probably been one of the best college teams of all-time if they would not have been stopped by the Grant Hill and the Blue Devils.
Now the Wolverines suffer the challenge of recruiting over Duke. Duke now controls all college recruiting. I personally think the smart players are the ones that choose smaller colleges sometimes so that they can be the star. If a player like Kenneth Faried would have attended Duke University. He would likely not have been drafted to the NBA ever.
If Coach K ever leaves Duke, I don’t think they will be the same again.
