he grew a beard
One of our 2015 basketball targets, we were in his final 5 schools.
I guess it's not really a surprise that he didn't select us, but it is kind of surprising that he picked USCe over Louisville (his presumed number 2).
EDIT: Looks like some people are having trouble... USCe is South Carolina, USCw would be Southern Cal.

If you have a few minutes, check out this story I came across on mlive about Beilein's journey from a trench digger to UM's basketball coach. Great read.
This kid is incredible.
I don't know how to embed from BTN, so here's the link.
Just in case anyone missed it, Austin Hatch was Scott Van Pelt's Star of the Night on SC tonight. I don't know how to embed from an ESPN website, can someone please embed. This might have been mentioned or posted on another thread, but I think recognition for this young man's heart and perseverance deserves its own. Go Austin and Go Blue!
At the game in Crisler. Austin Hatch just checked into the game. The bench stood up in anticipation every time Austin touched the ball. With less than a minute left Austin got fouled and missed his first free throw. After a deep breath and a second with his eyes closed, Austin put the ball straight through the rim, nothing but net.
It's unbelievable to think that just 3 short years after surviving his 2nd plane crash, after relearning how to breathe, eat, and walk, Austin has scored in a Division 1 basketball game. Amazing credit to Austin as a person and credit to John Beilein for giving him the opportunity. Go Blue
Anyone have a site where I can find tonight's game?
