We have heard that John Belilein will not lose a game against a team they have a week to prepare for. (Good luck to Tennessee /Mercer) This article on Mlive talks some about the other problem for teams in the NCAA tournament. Bacari Alexander says that while Michigan can forcus on a few things that other teams do well and determine a game plan to stop it, other teams have to deal with a deep playbook with little time to prepare for it. Obviously the Tennessee?Mercer winnner will have more time however they still have no idea how Michigan is going to play them.
I think that's why Michigan will continue to be a factor in the NCAA's in the future. No one knows how Michigan will play. Whether it's Beilein having a week to tear your team apart or a team only having a couple days to prepare for Michigan's extensive playbook, Michigan has an advantage. Throw in abundant talent and Michigan is going to be a tough team to beat.
The B1G knows Beilein better from playing them more frequently so it's mitigated to some small extent. However, even if you figure out how to beat them one game, they may attack with a totally different game plan the next time.
Maybe I read too much into this article and over analyzed but I think Beilein will soon be getting the attention he deserves for being a brilliant coach and all around nice guy.
