"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Does this mean Stauskas, GR3 and McGary are all coming back?
In a surprise to no one, but probably more important tham who's wearing Michigan apparel threads, Mitch McGary, Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III have filed to request an evaluation by the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee.
Here's a vine video of John Beilein hitting a jumper from the elbow and holding his form on the follow through like a pimp. Or like Aaron Craft. A pimpy Aaron Craft.
Anyway, maybe the more significant part is that Mitch seems to be in a practice jersey. I'm still doubtful he would ever come back this year but why not fan the flames of internet speculation?
Sam Webb has an update on Mitch McGary on Go Blue Wolverine. It's a free link.
A lot of the same information, however it goes more into what he is doing in his workouts and how much he wants to get back to this team.
One interesting note was that Spike's older brother had the same surgery and gave him advice on things to do such as a lot of stretching and core work to strengthen the back.
You have to love the guy and how much he wants to be part of this team.
My bad if that has been posted already but I though it was important enough.
Mitch McGary has progressed to running on a hardcourt and next week plans to start jumping for the first time since shutting down his season with a back injury.
The Michigan sophomore still doesn't have a timetable for a return, though he does have a wish.
"Let's get back to Dallas [site of the Final Four] and we'll see," he said after Michigan beat Ohio State in a Big Ten semifinal on Saturday. "You never know what will happen."
He had been running on an underwater treadmill before finally progressing to the less forgiving hardcourts. As for the jumping, it will be slow and gradual, he said -- like everything with this rehab.
The biggest hill to climb, though, will be conditioning.
"I just have to get my legs back," he said. "It's tougher than people think it is. I have a lot of energy and I like to go all out, so it's been really difficult."
Per update on Scout - Mitch McGary is trying to get back for the post season and is currently running.
I also liked the quotes about Beilein not allowing hang heads, moping, etc.
