I didn't learn about this until reading Brian's Beckmann-referencing post, but for those still not in the loop, Beckmann said this on his Facebook page Sunday:
"I got called off vacation to broadcast the Michigan hoops games in Charlotte...M/Duke should be great...This M team is the antithesis of the Fab 5, unselfish, always plays hard, no sense of entitlement, respects opponents, and no racists...We should thank Jalen Rose for reminding everyone why we never want another group like the Fab 5 at Michigan, or any other school!!!"
What is the general feeling on Beckmann as Michigan's play-by-play man after this? To me -- and I don't give a shit if anyone calls me out for being political -- it is just Beckmann revealing his true colors if you've ever listened to his radio show. For the program to be in business with an obviously slanted politcal pundit never made me feel easy. For him to publicly say this pathetic, obviously race-fueled drivel is enough to make me write a letter to the University about him.
The sooner he leaves his post at the microphone, the better.
