    The quote that gazoo posted was from an ESPN writer saying what he thought was Burke's goal. Gazoo twisted it to make it sound like Burke was saying it.

    Trey Burke of Michigan Wolverines announces he's entering NBA draft - ESPN

    I heard that Trey Burke and Mark Zuckerberg have gotten together and are heavily recruiting LeBron and Bill Gates to go back to school and finally finish their degrees. Steve Jobs' premature death scared some sense into them, apparently. They don't want to die young without a piece of paper from a company that sells education. And because the fans want it. How could they live with themselves?

    I don't personally know a single person who wouldn't have forfeited their degree instantly in exchange for millions of dollars. Most people graduate with a pile of debt that takes them years to pay off.

    Your degree is a piece of paper that gets you in the door for a job in exchange for a pile of debt.... If I could leave college for a multi million dollar job I wouldn't even bother packing up my stuff....

    I rank M number ONE in my preseason poll...followed by Oklahoma State, Louisville, Michigan state and North Carolina. Derrick walton and Spike will share the ball more - Robinson and mc gary will be studs-Horford will win most improved and Stauskus will show yall even more flair!

    Little Jordan Dumars made the team a couple of years back, but due to injuries...could not get on the court.

    I think Cheikh Samb IV could be a decent player for the Wolverines if he puts on some weight.
