I haven't seen this MaizeAndBlueNews interview discussed here.
Sorry to be negative on Monday morning, but I'm finding it a bit hard to be optimistic about his back 'condition'. Beilein tends to be much more open about things than Hoke, and he is being quite vague on this topic. In the video I linked, McGary is asked 'When was the last time that you were able to play basketball full-go?', and after a very long pause, while looking off camera to someone on his left, he responds 'I don't feel comfortable answering that.'
Talk me off a ledge?
Perhaps this is all blown out of proportion - hopefully he plays tomorrow and allays all my fears ;)
