Michigan Tuesday: The $90M Man

There have been a ton of firsts in Duncan Robinson's life.  He was the first D3 player to transfer to a D1 school in college basketball and now he is the first non-drafted player to earn a $90M contract.   That's right, Duncan has agreed to a 5 year $90M contract to stay with Miami last night after the Free Agency period opened up.  Damn proud of you, Duncan!  I like to think of all his success is due to him passing me in a golf cart on a Disney golf course during the bubble last summer. 

Duncan wasn't the only former Wolverine to sign a big contract yesterday.  Dallas renewed Tim Hardaway Jr. 4 years at $74M.   That is $164M for 2 former Wolverines on Monday afternoon.   Both of this guys should send Coach B a fruit basket or a Tesla.  

  • WR Dillon Bell (who sounds like a Nickelodeon show cast member) has picked Georgia over Michigan.  
  • 2023 QB and #1 ranked player Quinn Ewers has decided to re-classify and enroll at OSU now.   This NIL is really changing things.  I wonder how his high school teammates are feeling right now?  I think there must be a rule that OSU has to have a 5 star QB on the roster.
