I went to the Beilein show tonight and had to wonder if, since the awesome aneurysm moment he displayed in East Lansing, he's developed more of an edge. He was asked about the Ohio State video shown pregame at Value City, which I understand featured the Chris Webber TO, Evan Turner's half-court shot to beat us in the B10 tournament and a dunk to win a game back in the 70s. It ended with the Pure Michigan logo.
In the past, I think Beilein would have simply chuckled and said that that stuff doesn't matter. Tonight he said (I'm somewhat paraphrasing), with an edge in his voice, that "I hope we never do that kind of thing at Michigan and we won't as long as I'm here".
Anyway, while I don't really have a problem with players like Sherman trash talking I think it's classless when teams do it through their video feeds. I'm also in favor of our PA announcers (Carl at football and Scott at hockey) continuing to essentially provide neutral(ish) commentary.
I'm curious if anyone else has thoughts about the contrast between the Michigan in-game experience and other schools'.
