From a recent Freep article. He feels the Levert injury was an overuse issue and feels the injury to his Freshmen Bess was as well.
"When you see a thing like LeVert — and here's where I have changed, too, over the last three or four years — in my basement, when the best player on somebody else's team went down, I'm not different than a fan. Hell, I'm happy as hell because I've got to win games," Izzo said Monday at his news conference. "When you go through a bunch of injuries yourself, I wouldn't have wished this (on them), I am not happy.
John Beilein has moved up from #13 since it was last posted about on this board to #9. I've been voting daily and like to think I played a small part in moving him up. St Louis Center would get the following amount if Beilein is eliminated in the following rounds:
- Round 1: $1,000
- Round 2: $7,500
- Round 3: $10,000
- Round 4: $15,000
- Winner: $100,000
He is supporting St. Louis Center:
http://www.stlouiscenter.org (located in Chelsea, MI)
Mission: St. Louis Center is a caring, residential, family living and learning environment providing for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD)
Vision: Our vision is to create a future in which every resident is provided a continuum of life-long care in a safe, comfortable, supportive, and family-like environment in which the individual's right to self-determination and personal decision-making, along with the need for dignity, respect, tradition and spirituality are honored.
MGoUser buddhafrog related that he worked there while in college and that it left a lasting (very positive) impression:
I worked there while at university and that place taught me so many important, lasting lessons. It houses and cares for kids and adults with a different levels of disabilities. Some of the residents are placed by family, while some are wards of the state and have no family. Many of the youth I worked with (not all, and I won't put a % on this) had been abused, some unspeakably. This place literally saves lives, gives dignity and hope to families and residents who need both, and it does so responsibly with a very limited budget and a dedicated staff. It's an incredible place, and it has partnered with UM for more than 20 years. Please vote for Beilein / St. Louis Center.
Here is a vine from Alejando Z.(umhoops/Harbaugh's go getter) of the last play of the Northwestern game. I think Levert won the game tipping the ball back so they couldn't get a last second shot off.
Not sure if Caris's foot being stepped on by Olah(270lbs) or the way Levert landed on his left leg after he tipped it back caused the injury.
Best wishes to him on a speedy recovery and bright future.
Great episode covering the life of LeVert. Cool story about his brother just made me appreciate him even more. Seems fitting after the news of the season ending surgery for LeVert. Wish him a quick recovery and hope he makes the best decision for his future. Enjoy GO BLUE!!
