I think we’re going DIV. II, hiring Bronk and becoming a national power house, overnight.

So, Ferris State went 38-1 this past year against against D2 teams and lost to Michigan State in Lansing 80-72. Not bad for a team with D2 talent.

+1 MSU would've mollywopped us by 50 and coach Alexander would've said something like "we won the last two minutes and thirty two seconds of the game.

LOL. Then he would have retweeted some stupid quote from The Secret about how you just have to believe in yourself.

Here’s the full tweet: “We are hearing that Andy Bronkema Div 2 National Champ at Ferris State has been tapped on the shoulder to clean up the mess @ Detroit Mercy.......... that staff better be assembled with experience at Div 1. Suprised he took it but Good Luck! You will need it!”

If this is true, fantastic hire. Surprised he didn't stay at Ferris for a few more years and try and land a better job. Glad he's here though.

The question now is how many players will he pull from Ferris to come to Detroit. I personally would not mind a few of their better players (especially juniors and seniors) coming over to help us out.

Steve Bell tweets: “WOTS, U-D new coach announced within a week. Will be someone very familiar to in-state fans.”

Within a week?

I wouldn’t go to the bank on this one. If true it’s only because others turned us down. But that is how he got the job at Ferris and it worked out well for him there.

Interesting Tweet in response to Bell’s report from former Titan John Buszka: “I can confirm it is NOT I”

I am extremely disappointed with this hire. If Bronk was the guy this should have been done 4 weeks ago. I do hope he can save a few of the signings but the way decisions are made at good old U-D I am pretty sure the wrong decision will be made.
Of the D2 guys mentioned I liked the Indianapolis guy the best.

If anything Bronk settled for us. He is one of the hottest rising names in college basketball. I thought he would turn us down and wait a few years for a bigger school to come calling.

Keep in mind that in the absence of good communication, rumors (often inaccurate) fill the vacuum.

I obviously agree with there being no reason (besides incompetence) that it should have taken this long to hire Bronk. But other than that, I think it’s a great hire. He gets more talented recruits from the Detroit area than we do right now, and he was D2. He’s also a proven winner (which obviously does not always transfer to D1, but still). And, he’s also a big(ish) name. Recruits and our current players will respect him from hearing about Ferris State winning the D2 championship. Better than bringing in some random coach from Indianapolis who no one has never heard of in Detroit.

You hope none?! You do realize Ferris State would’ve killed us by 20-30 points last year right? We should be hoping they offer to switch rosters with us completely!

I think you are wrong 03. I think maybe one guy on their roster might have been talented enough to start for us and he is already on his way to D1.Guys like McFolley,Allen and Chatman would have been super stars at Farris. I don't think you realize how bad BA was and how dysfunctional we were. We didn't guard anyone, Thrower was one of the best players at Ferris and he didn't go there to play basketball. There is a big difference between D1 and D2 talent. Brock might actually have no idea what he needs or where to go to fill his roster. If he is the guy I hope he gets some really good assistants. Now he has to actually find guys who will go to class. As for Ferris State beating us by 20-30 points ,we will never know but I really doubt it. Have you watched Ferris play? I have, 6 times this year, and I think they might have beat us 3 out of ten and that was with BA coaching. on the roster switch you might be right as I am not sure we even have a roster at this point.
