further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
Coach John Beilein and the St. Louis Center are in the Final Four of the ESPN Infiniti Coaches' Charity Challenge.
St. Louis Center is already assured of receiving $15k by virtue of Beilein making it to the final round, but the winner gets $100k. He is currently in 4th place, with Matt Painter (43%) and Fred Hoiberg (41%) leading the way, and Gregg Marshall (9%) holding a narrow lead over Beilein (8%).
GO BLUE! VOTE BEILEIN!
Last night was frustrating, yes. So I watched this. It kinda helped.

it's time to go more all out in football and basketball. Go to Columbus. See what they do to get 5 star after 5 star to go there for basketball and football. I don't even care if it's illegal. The NCAA doesn't care if you cheat anyways. Who cares about admissions? Ohio State lets anyone in who can breath and have been the best football/basketball tandem in the country since 2000 while we pludge along doing things the right way and getting our asses handed to us by them but hey we do things the right way. Why can't Beilein get a Jared Sullinger, Mullins, or Oden while Thad Matta can? Beilein is a better player developer than Matta even as this year has been shitty. I believe he's a better developer of talent than Izzo too but they get the talented 5 stars that keep their programs from having down years like this year for Michigan. If we recruited as well as the Buckeyes do for both football and basketball, we'd never go through these hardships. Top 5 classes every year in both sports and Harbaugh and Beilein would have us rolling as the best college sports program in America. Your snowflakes below.
Thanks to Timehop and my incessant tweeting during Michigan sporting events I was reminded of what happened on March 3rd, 2013.
Michigan 58 - Michigan State 57
It was a great day indeed, thanks to two Burke steals (which he called ahead of time) at the end of the game.
Michigan forward Mitch McGary said Appling used a spin move earlier in the game, which Michigan won 58-57, and Burke told him exactly how he was going to swipe the ball."He told me whenever (Appling) spins, he puts it in his right hand and it's an easy steal," McGary said. "Tim and I were just hoping he didn't hang on the rim."
